Stay in Surprise January 2016

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the home. Very lovely home, roomy, and clean! Everything we needed during our stay was very close and convenient to get to. We did have guests for a couple of days from Tucson and they thought the home was very nice also. We have booked it for January 2017 already.

Loved the Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for siblings from three different states to come together to celebrate the holidays. Mitch and Mary were very kind and made us feel welcome by leaving flowers and notes throughout the home. The home was in excellent condition and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could possibly need and there was plenty of seating for family meals, conversation, and game nights. The neighborhood was quiet and well-maintained and just a short drive to grocery stores and shopping. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Mitch and Mary!!

What a wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Mitch and Mary were incredibly nice to work with and their home is just awesome. Very clean, cozy and everything you need to enjoy your time there as if your right at home. Mitch and Mary were kind and accommodating and allowed us to arrive earlier then the check-in time which was a huge help. The warm welcome notes and flowers just added to the whole feel of the home. Like we were at a friends house. Thanks sooo much for making our trip so memorable. : ) We hope to be back soon!

Wonderful property

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is perfect for three singles or couples. The open floor plan was perfect to host lunches and dinner of the our entire tennis team of 8 ladies. The bedrooms were good-sized and each had walk in closets. The den is open with a fairly small futon, which would be good for a child but not necessarily for an adult. We were greeted with flowers on the table, a welcoming note and best of all a bag of ice in the freezer. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you for your hospitality!

Unforgettable Memories

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our Mother's on a trip to AZ to spend some quality family time and see friends in the area. We were blessed to stay at this amazing property from 12/3 through 12/7. Mary and Mitch had beautiful flowers to welcome us along with a welcome sign. The moment we walked in, we felt like we were home. There was not one thing we would have changed. They thought of absolutley everything that anyone could ever need. From a fresh bag of ice to shampoo and all the toiletries one would ever need. The Mom's had their own bedrooms and everyone was comfortable and cozy. Our only regret is that we could not stay forever!

Thank you Mary and Mitch for sharing your beautiful home with us. This is a vacation we will never forget. We hope to do business again in 2017!

Perfect location for us and loved the layout of the home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The location was perfect for us as it was close to family we had come to visit. The layout of the home is perfect! The flow and the way the home allows for separation and togetherness at the same time is a great design. The home was spotless and the beds were comfortable. We were able to have a family gathering and had plenty of room for everyone to sit and eat and visit and relax. I will definitely use this VRBO again if we are in the area! Thank you again.
