About Owner/Manager

Whenever people were at my house they always told me they felt like they were on vacation. Over the years I had stayed at quite a few vacation rentals in Laguna Beach California, which gave me a good idea of how vacation rentals worked. So a few years back I started remodeling the house with the idea of it being 1st class, in case I ever wanted to turn it into a vacation rental. So when the economy collapsed and china ruined the furniture business, I closed my furniture manufacturing business of 20 years and I started renting out the house. Now I really enjoy it. I have met lots of really cool and interesting people, and its cool knowing they really enjoyed the home while they were here.

Owner/Manager purchased this villa in 1995

What makes this villa unique

Most people that have stayed at the home have told me that taking the boat out during both the day and night was their favorite and most relaxing part of their vacation. This includes people that have gone to the grand canyon, sedona and many other beautiful parts of Arizona. The lake has over 5 miles of shoreline and just about every home on it is unique and different, which makes for a very scenic and relaxing experience. The developer of the community was from Newport Beach California and wanted it to look like balboa peninsula in newport. The results 40 years later are stunning, because unlike almost anywhere else in Phoenix the area, it is lush and green with waterviews through out. You would never know your in the desert. Clubhouse is available with many features.

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

I am almost hesitant in giving this beautiful place a great review because I don't want it to completely fill up! But it seems it is rented most of the time, and we know why. It is so beautiful, quiet and peaceful, being on the water. We took the pontoon out every day, the best time being at dusk. You can't believe you're in the middle of a huge metropolitan area, it is almost Disney-like! We were there for work and we had plenty of great workspace. We go to AZ at least once a year and decided to try a rental instead of a hotel. It was a great choice! We had a friend come and stay with us, she said it was like a resort. She had fun picking her bedroom. Walt is great, very easy going, not lots of rules posted everywhere like some rentals. It felt like home and we were very sad to leave. The house is comfortable and spacious, beautifully appointed but not "too" elegant where you don't feel like you can touch anything. It is so convenient to everything, but feels like you're a thousand miles away. We loved it and will be back. Thanks Walt!

waterfront with boat

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation at this waterfront beauty. What a treat to get on your own boat, drive around the lake, stop at your choice of 2 restaurants for dinner or cocktails. Views and privacy are perfect. I could go on but suffice it to say we will return often. Thanks, Walt. Great host. See you soon.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week with our young kids in June at Walt's property so they could attend various day camps. He was available, responsive and easy to communicate with. The townhouse was roomy, comfortable and quiet. The amenities at the clubhouse were great. Like a previous guest mentioned, there is a bunch of delayed maintenance. The good news is that we weren't charged when the deck broke or the stove light wouldn't turn off (things Walt responded had happened before) but we were afraid of what else could go wrong. In retrospect, he was cool with all the problems but we didn't know that as 1st time guests.
