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!

A pleasant location with nice amenities

  • 4 of 5

Some deferred maintenance but it was very clean and lots of extra towels. Also appreciated were the kitchen and desk items available for use. Sleeps 6 in beds. Had a hot tub that was 102 max and not well maintained. Enjoyed the boat, 2 kids life jackets available, 2-3 fishing rods available and you can boat to two restaurants. Large TV with lots of channels. Beds comfortable, 2 showers and one tub. Dinner seating for 4 plus 2 at the counter. Seating for 6 outside. A relaxing and pleasant location. Owner responsive to calls. Thanks!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and can not figure out why we haven't always done this! Walt's beautiful home was perfect for us to be able to relax and enjoy quality time with our Az family. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much Walt, we can not tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect home for our family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying in this beautiful home while on vacation. We really enjoyed the fantastic view from the kitchen and we especially liked using the pontoon boat. The house came equipped with everything you need; plenty of linens and the kitchen was stocked. The outdoor pool was a hit. It had a basketball hoop and that was a big hit for my boys. If we ever come back to Arizona we will definitely stay here again. Thank you Walt!

This villa was a perfect fit for our ASU graduation stay. It is well appointed and stocked with everything we needed. A stop at the store for groceries and we were set. It offers outdoor space to enjoy the mornings and evenings and was cool and comfortable inside during the heat of the day. It is located very near a Starbucks and Einstein bagels for quick morning runs. The view on the water was a nice treat in the desert. I would definately recommend this peaceful retreat!
