Guestbook comments from the owner

We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home - everything was so comfortable and spacious. There was room for everyone to spread out. Maury particularly liked having the office space where he could do business in the a.m. before everyone else got up. P.S. Thanks also for the use of the bikes - we all loved them! We bought a helmet for our grand-daughter and she just loved going to Starbucks almost every day for a" smoothie", and riding around the beautiful neighborhood. Thanks again - we loved staying here!

Great house-perfect for family, guests, pets! Everything provided and the owner is very responsive. Central location close to all the newest and best restaurants (there is even a farmer's market in the neighborhood two days a week!). Easy highway access to enjoy all the valley has to offer.

This property is in excellent condition! All was in order. Kitchen complete and user friendly. Pool clean, clear, and delightful; despite not being heated, our grandchildren loved it. Backyard roomy, comfortable, and inviting for games and hanging out. Three well-appointed bedrooms. Home light and bright throughout. Rooms were available that we didn't even use (formal living room and dining room). The owner was very accommodating and easygoing--good to work with. Handy location, close to everything in Central Phoenix, lovely neighborhood, great for walking and bicycling.

We would stay here again--it felt just like home.

Loved our stay at this Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for several weeks and the home was more than we could have asked for. It was comfortable, clean, well-equipped, and was perfect for us in every way. We also loved the location, close to stores, restaurants and close to our daughters home. We will do Home Away again and of course hope we can stay at this home as well. The owner was accommodating in every way. So if you enjoy a gourmet kitchen, a built in barbecue in the back yard and a beautiful swimming pool, you can't go wrong with this home. Thank you Mary!!

Gorgeous Beatiful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe this home other than its more than you can imagine. It's Beatiful, Gorgeous, Fantastic, Great. It has everything you need and more. The homeowner Mary is absolutely a pleasant person talking with her makes you feel like you have known her for years. The house is just great. Beautifully decorated, very comfortable and ideally gorgeous. We used the grill, ate outside and the ambience was just perfect. We were here for spring training got some games in and also some other sites. Went to the Grand Canyon and it was awwwwwsome. Stopped in Sedona and gorgeous. If your not afraid of heights take a balloon ride it was Fantastic. Go to Tortilla Flats have lunch very unique place. Stop and go on the Dolly Steamboat for a ride on Canyon Lake scenery is breathless. We yelped a few restaurants and did not have a bad meal. Urban Taco, Phoenix City Grille, St Francis Restaurant all very good. I would highly recommend this home. If you don't stay here you will be sorry. Thank You Mary for opening your home to us we truly enjoyed our stay and we do plan on returning.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented Mary's property for the second year in a row to celebrate the Christmas holidays in Arizona. We were, once again, incredibly happy with our entire stay! When we walked through the door after a long, overseas flight, it truly felt like we were walking through the door to our own home. The house and property is immaculately kept and Mary even added some extra Christmas decorations to help us get in the spirit. This is unlike any other rental property in which we have stayed and the difference is very apparent in the attention to details.

The home itself is very comfortable and user-friendly. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is incredibly well-stocked with all the appliances/utensils one might need (and we did a lot of cooking including Christmas dinner for 10), the washer and dryer are new, there are plenty of extra sheets and towels, etc. Very importantly, though certainly not always the case with rentals, the home is clean!

Mary was very accommodating with particular requests, but also very attentive to allow guests complete privacy and inform ahead of time if she or somebody else needs to stop by the property for some reason.

The area is great as well and close to (in many cases walking/biking distance) to many restaurants, downtown events, farmer's markets and other various activities. The neighborhood is lovely even just for a stroll or bike ride (with the provided bicycles).

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to rent a spacious, comfortable, elegant home in Central Phoenix and look forward to renting Mary's home again next year!

Wonderful Home, Wonderful Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our out-of- town family over Thanksgiving 2015. It was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The owner, Mary, was friendly, welcoming and easy to contact.

I definitely recommend this rental!
