About Diana Madsen

We are Minnesota residents and enjoy spending time in sunny Arizona. We purchased this home and decided to put it on the rental market to share it with others when we can't be there.

Our story with this home began when we had the privledge of renting the home through VRBO. We fell in love with the open floor plan, the access and view to the outside pool and patio areas, and the expansive lot that the home sits on with a gorgeous pool and grassy areas to enjoy.

Diana Madsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Diana Madsen chose Gilbert

We love to travel. We fell in love with the outdoor space. The backyard emits a resort-like vibe. The lush palm trees, fruit trees and foliage makes it feel very private. The backyard is nestles up to a park with basketball courts and a playground, which makes it very quiet. The play pool is perfect for family fun, and the covered patio space with a water mister keeps you cool on hot summer days, while the raised sunning deck near the pool is perfect for relaxing. There is grassy space to play games and the garage opens to the back, creating more outdoor entertaining space to play ping pong or to workout. We bought this house to be near our family. With the finishing upgrades of granite and stainless steel, it is comfortable for visitors.

What makes this house unique

We love the outdoor living. The wall of windows in the dining and living room is visible from the kitchen and allows you to be part of the outdoor fun, even when you are in the kitchen. This single level home is spacious and quiet, with the master bedroom on one end of the home and the guest bedrooms and bath on the opposite. We golf, walk, and love to play in the pool with our family. The home is in a convenient area with easy access, just off the 60. We are convenient to the Phoenix/Mesa airport that receives flights from all around the country, and we are approximately 20 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport. We love the desert and the mountains around us, as well as the accessability to all the amenities of the area.

Fantastic Work Retreat for an Entire Month!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are from San Francisco, CA and wanted to spend a month away from our city condo. We enjoy the November weather in the PHX area, and decided to spend a month working remotely. We choose this location as it was close to many amenities without being too close to the downtown area. We were very happy upon our arrival to discover this lovely home with heated pool, backyard grill, fruit trees, and manicured landscaping! The indoors was just the right size with a master bedroom secluded on one side of the house, and the other two bedrooms in their own wing! The modern kitchen was very large and connected to a dining room and living area! The home had all the amenities you would require for a month of living, including all kitchen, towels, cleaning supplies, etc. The neighborhood is very quiet, and near shopping, golf courses, and a great Mexican Restaurant! We cooked on the grill often, and ate on the back patio with our bottle of wine! Diana is a wonderful host, and was always a phone call away if we had a quick question or two once we arrived, and throughout our stay! I highly recommend the home for both the home itself, and the owner's dedication to keep up a fantastic property!

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a month. Had family and friends coming and going over the month. All of them raved about the house. Especially the back yard--paradise with great pool; three different sitting areas; fire-pit; orange/grapefruit trees; two BBQs. We lived outside.

Diana was very responsive. Had an issue with the printer, which they provide!. Took care of it immediately.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous rental property. The home is furnished beautifully and comfortably. It is spacious and well planned. The backyard patio area and pool are beautiful. There are several seating areas that allow shade or sun choices. There is plenty of yard space for other activities

The amenities in the home were wonderful. This included kitchen supplies, towels, bedding etc. computer access and printer. The entire property was immaculate

The separation of the master suite /bathroom. And the guest bedrooms is very nice. We really appreciated having tv's in each bedroom.

This is a great location. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt very safe. There are many restaurants, golf clubs, shopping areas, theatres, and churches within easy access

We would highly recommend this property and love to return next winter

We spent 10 days in Gilbert at Diana's property in December 2016. We loved the location and the house itself. Diana was very helpful and quick to respond to any requests. We refilled the propane tank and she insisted on reimbursing us for it even though we told her it wasn't necessary. She also gave us a rebate because the temperature of the pool wasn't quite as warm as we had hoped. I highly recommend this property and hope to return to it soon.

Return Guest

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time vacationing at Michael and Diana's lovely home. If you read my previous reviews from 2014 and 2015 there is not much more that I can say. We again had a wonderful stay. We came two weeks earlier this year so were able to enjoy the grapefruit from the yard (awesome) and some spring training games. Do not hesitate to stay here if you want a nice relaxing vacation away from home. Truly enjoyed.

Note: Liquid soap is provided in glass dispensers on both bathroom counters but you may want to bring your own bar soap for the showers.
