About Beth Helm

Dean & I travel to a scuba diving destination each year and always try to rent a condo or home instead of a hotel. We have enjoyed that so much more that we thought we would try our hand at a vacation rental house. We are only about 3 miles away and have owned this vacation rental house for 8 years. We try to have everything in the house that we would want on vacation and want you to have a wonderful, comfortable time.

Beth Helm purchased this house in 2007

Why Beth Helm chose Peoria

We bought our vacation rental in this location because it is 1 mile off of the 101 Agua Fria freeway that circles the entire valley. Also, it is close to Arrowhead Towne center, the premiere shopping and activity center in the north west valley,walking distance to Peoria Sports Complex, and close to Westgate and the Football/Hockey venue. The Desert Harbor neighborhood in Peoria borders Sun City and Westbrook Village to the West and North. Plus it is only 3 miles from our house.

What makes this house unique

We strive to make our rental house comfortable and hope you will feel at home right away. The decor is southwestern style for a little extra local flair. Community is quiet quiet quiet and very safe with 24 hour security. Nice secluded back yard, great for entertaining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying in your home. It was loaded with all the little things needed to make us feel like we were at home. Awesome baseball games,great golf and plenty of Poker games. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we will be back.

May 2009 Vacation Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this home and were very pleased with our choice. We especially appreciated the free coffee, tea and lemonade! The high ceilings and fans were a nice extra and it's very clean! Much nicer than it appears in the photos... Beth even allowed us to bring our dog, which made it home to us. The notebook of area activities/amenities/map was very helpful. The kitchen was well supplied with cookware, etc., and the furnishings were nice-- especially the linens! It's an easy find off the Loop 101... We will definitely be back! Thanks so much!

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the house several times so are happy to find things as expected. There are lots of resources and extras available, making our stay easy and pleasant. Several times, we have been joined for part of our week, by friends and relatives and all were pleased by the accommodations.

We finally included a day trip to Sedona - don't miss it!

Clean, comfortable, truly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight nights over Christmas Holiday with Son, daughter in law, and daughter, who traveled from different areas of south and southwest. We travelled from northwest. All by automobiles. It was great to be able to find an awesome place to come together, all be quite comfortable, and safe. It was not just the house, walled area around back concrete deck area, it was how the house was presented with its amenities. Amenities such as, large closets in two of bedrooms, tvs in two of three bedrooms, a washer and dryer you were not afraid to wash clothes in. All three parts of family drove here for Holiday with cooking a Christmas feast in mind. As such, we did bring some special roasting pan, racks, that we desired, and we used them. However, most other items we brought were not used. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans and utinsels for normal use age. Large, clean fridge, glass cook top stove, oven used countless times. All five of us sat very comfortably at large dining room area table. Very happy with experience, would HIGHLY recommend, if someone was "wavering" on whether or not to choose this listing. Our experience in this type of renting, once in house in El Paso TX, for two weeks. Once in large apartment in Stuttgart Germany for about three weeks. Not complete "newbies". Have hopes of returning some time. Best wishes to Beth and Dean, never met while here, just text and calls. They obviously respect privacy, and go to great pain to make people comfortable!!!
