Thank you Paul. It was a pleasure meeting you three! Thanks for saying you and your wife would like to come next time and try he Parlor for your visit, we welcome you!! Glad your orginal 3 nights turned into more.
Over priced and under whelmed!
Needed to leave early for a sick loved one and the Covid-19 virus outbreak and Manager would not give back any money back for 3 unused nights, but did offer 1 free night stay next time we booked with them. We had to take care of several leaks and all they could say about them was " I hope this doesn't inconvenience you too much. " The house smelt like wet dog and piss so we bought air fresheners that didn't work too well. Only half the Jets worked in the hot tub. We asked where the garbage cans were and while we were gone got a notification that they went into the house and took care it. No curtains so the sun would just shine into the bedrooms. We have used VRBO several times and all the places we have stayed in had shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The house would also have a little laundry soap to wash towels. This property had nothing. We would never stay here again and would recommend this property.
It is true, I did ask Frosty that if it rained to place a pot under the spot that was leaking on an end table, if it rained. This was detected right before he moved in. I didn’t realize it would be such a large imposition. As I think most people would agree, repairing the roof we felt would be better after no one was scheduled in the house. All though we do have a strict refund policy, I thought it would be nice to offer a free night to them since they left early, they were there for over a week, it appears they didn’t appreciate the gesture. It is funny about the window covering because there are wood blinds on the window in one bedroom and there is no window in the other bedroom. It was removed when we added a large bathroom. There was a pod for laundry left in the laundry area they didn't use., maybe they were looking for liquid? Also we always provide bar soap, not body wash. To change the pressure or open the jets in the hot tub you do have to manually turn the jets. The people who checked in right after them, left a 5 star rating they liked it so much they stayed longer. We are very attentive owners and we are 2 minutes away and someone is always available for our guests. Below is our conversation with him.
Do you have a garbage can we can take the garbage out to?

The garbage cans are at the bottom of the hill right after the little turn on the right hand side blue for recycle green for garbage.

We took out your garbage for you also left you some lemons from our tree. A couple of your swimming suits fell down so we brought them back up. I left a message but for some reason I can’t find it on my phone about where the garbage is at the bottom of the hill after you make the turn on the right hand side behind a little pony wall.

Stayed here for a long weekend with the family. Beautiful spot with easy access to everything.
Cowboy take me away!!!
Such a delightful stay at this gem of a home. Fran and her husband with both so welcoming and everything was set up for our arrival.
The sunset the night we stayed was out of sight and we were able to watch it from the front patio.
Highly recommend this place for your stay!!
Thank you Patrice! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The sunsets are beautiful, thus the name Sunset Mountain Casitas! Please come back soon!
Mountain top casita
Super cute casita sitting on a mountain top. The casita is exactly as the picture shows with beautiful sunsets. Working with Fran and Kent was easy as pie with good communication. I would definitely recommend this stay.
Sunset Mountain Casitas are located on the northern edge of Phoenix approximately 1/2 mile from 101 and Cave Creek Road. Close to several lakes, minutes from Mayo Clinic. The Casita sits back from any traffic and high above road noise and city sounds yet moments from escaping the urban life to Lake Pleasant and Saguaro Lake. We are located upon a Saguaro populated mountain with several desert wildlife. Fox, coyote, roadrunners, quail, javelina and several birds. A reasonable drive to Sedona and the Grand Canyon.
Golf: Golf in every direction. From expensive to very reasonable.

Kent has been in Phoenix since 1984 and I have since 2002. We knew each other in High School and reconnect at a class reunion and got married in 2003!
Fran Titze purchased this House in 2004
Why Fran Titze chose Paradise Valley Village
We bought our 4 properties one at a time starting in 2004, with the one bedroom Mirage, the view made the decision easy and as the other houses became available we purchased them. It is convenient with each house above the other. We also live on the mountain so we are just minutes away if our guest need us. Kent's mom and son and his family also are on the mountain, so we are very protective and proud of our little place in the world.
What makes this House unique
The Mirage we purchased first. We thought we could fix it up and sell or rent it but after doing so we fell in love with the house and the view and decided to do short term vacation rental. We loved the theme idea so as we acquired each one we decided to not only have the decor match the theme but even the permanent fixtures! The Margarita was the last house a one bedroom, it is the 3rd highest house in Phoenix, so fantastic views. Everyone loves the houses, views and the themes. One of the benefits for us is when friends and family come to visit they have a nice place to stay. Also a benefit is we have made pretty good friends with a few of the people who come to visit every year. We have one person who will be coming for their 5th anniversary at Sunset Mountain. I love all our houses and can't decide which I like best. The guest house is located directly beneath the Ranchero and is a Studio. It is called The Parlor, it's décor is an 1890's western look!! You won't be disappointed with it!
