Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived to a spotless home that had excellent care and great instructions for our stay. I have never seen a home rental outfitted and supplied like this house. The usual is a half roll of toilet paper, a problematic TV, and enough silverware for barely 2 people. Your place was a Costco Warehouse. Kris even made an anniversary cake with the hand mixer on board. We've been married for 43 years (but it only seems like 42) and we all had a fun celebration.

With a 4 yr old grandson in tow, little things like real grass in the back & a safety lock on the sliding door were very nice.

The pool was kid-friendly. Walking the neighborhood, day or night, was enjoyable now that we all need 10,000 steps a day. The home was much closer to good grocery, eating, and recreation than Google let's you think. Our visits to Canyon Lake, Taliesin, Cubs game, and Grand Canyon were easy. A Tuscon day was in the mix but that is next year.

The only glitch - empty propane tank in the grill and I was too lazy too fill it.

I will stand by my rating: 11 out of a possible 10!

Thanks,

Dave

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Glenhaven was a home away from home for our group of 8 family members. There was plenty of room for all in this spacious and super clean house! The house was well stocked with supplies, linens, kitchen items etc. The pool was amazing and much appreciated in the Phoenix heat! There was lots of loungers and chairs for seating outside around the pool. Everything was perfect during our stay and we would definitely return if we're fortunate enough to vacation in Phoenix again in the future. Thank you so much for everything!

What a fantastic place to have a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Diane were great to work with, very prompt on all responses. The house was beautiful, clean and big. The pictures were spot on and did not disappoint us. We were all very happy with our stay. If we go back to Arizona we will definitely stay at this property. Thanks for sharing your house with us.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute we stayed in this beautiful, well stocked home, thanks again to the Giffords for their kindness in supplying all the paper products and other amenities, much appreciated. Also for the quick response when we had a couple of issues. We played the Foothills twice on the after 2:00 pm rates and twice on the reg rates. Wonderful course, beautiful scenery from some of the holes. Would stay here again. Near everything.

Nice house in a quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what our group of four golfers from the midwest wanted. The house was very clean and roomier than we needed. It is located in a very quite neighborhood and backs onto the 12th hole of The Foothills Golf Club, which we played several times. We ate dinner every night at the house, cooking there many times. The kitchen was really well stocked. There were convenient and helpful notes around the house that helped us deal with the idiosyncrasies that all houses have. Since we played two rounds of golf every day, we didn’t really get to use many of the amenities that the property has. Bob and Dianne were great to work with. If I have the opportunity to return to this house I would not hesitate to do so.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with seven adults and one toddler. It couldn’t have been more perfect. This was, by far, the best VRBO we’ve ever experienced (of approximately 10 other stays).

Usually rental homes are minimally stocked with things like garbage bags, soap, toilet paper, etc. Not this place! It has ample of supply of literally everything you need! You don’t waste tons of money buying all the extras.

The house is very clean, very well-equipped, and very comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the cable/internet/phone all work perfectly, the pool is great.

If you like to lay around the pool, you couldn’t ask for a nicer space! Five lounges and eight chairs. A great BBQ. Such a great space!

The location is ideal - close to grocery stores, shopping and the I10. Very safe and friendly neighborhood. Lots of nice places to walk.

You truly won’t find better value than this place. Owners are great. House is perfect. You can jut show up and enjoy your time.

Foothills Golf Course
Car: recommended

Golf: The Foothills Golf Club truly represents what desert golf should be, and caters to both power and course management minded players. The par-72 championship links-style course, designed by internationally acclaimed architects Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, stretches to almost 7000 yards with lush rolling fairways, blue lakes, and 65 bunkers set against rough rocky desert terrain. With four sets of tees, The Foothills Golf Club has appeal for golfers of all skill levels. The home is also close to other challenging golf courses such as Club West, Whirlwind, the Arizona Grand Resort, and the Ahwatukee Country Club.

Besides the Foothills golf course, there are another 4 golf courses in the Ahwatukee area that are all within 10 minutes of our home (Club West, Ahwatukee Lakes, Lakes at Ahwatukee, Ahwatukee Country Club).

If you venture out a little further, there are over 250 + golf courses in the greater Phoenix and surrounding area. We can provide you with all of the details for directions, rates, availability and most importantly DISCOUNTS!
