About the property

4 bedrooms, sleeps 8; 3.5 bathrooms; optional pool heat

Enjoy the tranquility that this beautiful two-story, 3700 sq. ft. home has to offer. The backyard is a private oasis, which is completely fenced and has many mature plants and trees. The views off the back deck are breathtaking, especially at night when the city lights are glimmering. Relax on the covered back patio or while lying by the pool with its gentle waterfall and attached spa.

There are four very large bedrooms; the two Master Suites are located on the second story, each with a king size bed and private bathroom. The two main floor bedrooms each has a queen size bed and share a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom.

There is a comfy living room with a TV off the full kitchen, as well as a sitting room for more 'formal' entertaining. The kitchen has a table that seats 8 comfortably and there is also a formal dining room.

We offer the option to heat the pool and/or spa with a weekly deposit. The deposit gives our guests the peace of mind of knowing that they won’t overpay. With the deposit, our guests only pay for the actual consumption of propane used during their stay. Any unused funds are reimbursed after check out.

Our property is located just east of Las Sendas on a 1.25 acre lot nestled in the hills of Mesa. There is easy access to all amenities, a nature reserve, several golf courses, mountain biking, hiking, shopping, and some of the best restaurants in town. Convenient access to highway 202 also puts Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix within an easy 30 minute drive.

If you enjoy boating, or simply like to be around the water, there are several lakes close by; Saguaro Lake is a short 20 minute drive, it offers a boat launch, a marina with boat rentals and\or a lake cruise, there are also several picnic areas. Canyon Lake is 40 minutes away and also offers all of these. If you're a bit more adventurous, head up to Roosevelt Lake (approx. 2 hours), which is the biggest of the surrounding lakes.

We are happy to provide more pictures upon request.

Why Nancy chose County Island

We love Arizona because of its warm, dry climate. We chose the Mesa area because of its beauty, its easy access to everything Phoenix and Scottsdale have to offer, as well as its proximity to the surrounding lakes and hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

The time that we spend in Mesa is always relaxing, rejuvenating, wonderful and fun filled. We love to spend time sitting by the pool and simply enjoying the privacy of our yard. The trails of Usery Park and Tonto National Park are always on our list of things to do, whether it be hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking or dirt biking. When we do venture out on day trips, we always enjoy Sedona or a drive up the Apache Trail. Boating, wake boarding, wake surfing and swimming are also some of our favourite activities.

Beautiful home both indoors and outdoors!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough great things about this home. It is perfectly kept and absolutely gorgeous. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed for both indoor cooking and outdoor grilling. We spent a lot of time outdoors on the patio soaking up the Arizona sunshine, hanging out in the pool and enjoying the hot tub. The house is close to everything - great hiking, Sloan Park, Cavalia and great restaurants. The check-in process was easy and very thorough.

We could not be happier with this property and hope to be back someday!

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous home with us!

Everything we needed for a relaxing week was provided in this lovely home. The houses in the area are more spaced out than in many neighborhoods, and there was plenty of open spaces. We loved hearing the birds in the morning and the coyotes at sunset. Great view from the second floor deck!

A quiet country home feeling!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a relaxing and beautiful stay in your home. The kitchen was well supplied and the grill offered many home cooked meals. The city and mountain views were stunning. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a busy day and swimming when the weather finally warmed up. The home offered a quiet retreat but still minutes away from everything we needed in a city setting. This home was near hiking paths, lake touring, NBA games, restaurants, mall and grocery shopping. The public library is not far away and offers a place to print materials or check out a book! My favorite part was taking walks around the neighborhood or sitting in the peaceful yard. Wildlife was at our fingertips: quails, coyotes, rabbits, roadrunners, and many birds. Thank you to June for showing us around the home and Nancy and Brian for answering any questions we had very quickly. This home is truly a gem in the middle of an island. Thank you for making our stay great!

Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely home. This property is everything that is described. Beautiful Sunsets, Beautiful Home... Relaxing hot tub, sitting by the fire was beautiful while looking at the lights of the city. We even got to see Coyotes walking past in the back. The house is filled to fit all your needs. The house is beautiful and we recommend this home to rent to anyone.

Truly a Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We heartily concur with all the previous reviews! We have been utilizing VRBO for several years for our family vacations, and this was by far, the best of the best! The home is an incredible blend of dramatic architecture and comfort. It was spotless and well-maintained. The location is seemingly quite rural, yet a brief five minute drive to markets and restaurants. The owners and caretaker were both gracious and extremely helpful. My greatest regret is that we had only booked one week...I could easily have basked in that lovely backyard oasis for another! We are hoping to return next year...
