About christian gerevas

My wife Kristi and our 2 kids Nikki and Jack love this home and look forward to sharing it with You. We spend as much time as we possibly can in the pool and spa. I bought this house to move into when I retire.

christian gerevas purchased this house in 2010

Why christian gerevas chose Maricopa

I purchased the home in Rancho El Dorado mainly because of the weather and the Golf. It is a safe community and has many parks and other activities that we enjoy as a family. Besides, Canadian winters are just too cold! We vacationed here in 2008 & 2009 and decided to buy our own home in 2010. We are glad we did!

What makes this house unique

We love to play and swim in the Pool in the day and enjoy the tranquility of the starry nights in the Spa. Did I mention the golf course is only 2 minutes away and very reasonable. My wife loves the shopping and the kids love the many outdoor activities. Christmas in Phoenix is incredible, Check out the outdoor light show in Glendale, and the Train ride in Scottsdale. For a daytrip nothing beats Sedona!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You for sharing Your wonderful home with my family ! The backyard was indeed an oasis in the desert, I dont think we missed one nite gazing at the stars from the comfort of the spa. Inside was everything we needed to feel comfortable, as far as the community of Maricopa the people were unbelievably freindly and helpfull. We will be booking our vacation with you again long in advance. Alisha.

Great place for chillin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here relaxing by the pool and golfing, We had a great time! Maricopa is a growing town with lots of amenities and some great dining experiences, highly recommend Penascos! The Duke is a great golf course and the grill is good too. The house is awesome very comfortable and roomy, backyard is a private persons paradise, its so quiet at night with only the stars to watch, had a lot of fun night swimming in the raw. The inside of the house needs a little updating but the owner mentioned it would be remodeled this winter. Overall great place highly reccomend it and will come again.

Grat place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter stayed here from september to end of october and we had a great time. The house was immaculate and well supplied. Beds are very comfortable . The backyard with the heated pool and spa are awesome and very private. The putting green is showing a little age but Christian mentioned that they are doing a reno this December and bringing everything up to date including redoing the kitchen as well. We cant say enough good things about the house as well as the owners we had a minor glitch with the mail delivery but christian responded immediatly and we had mail delivery the next day. Maricopa is a great town with awesome ammenities, we really enjoyed golfing at the duke as it was reasonably priced yet still challenging. We took our daughter to swim with the dolphins, yes you can now do this in Az! Ask the owner for more details but its a 20 minute drive only. Only knock on the place is the pidgeons who hang around the spa and poop, the pool guy comes once a week and hoses it off but we still had to do it every couple days. Minor inconvenience. Thanks Christian for a great trip we will recommend it to all our friends.

Golfing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My Buddies and I have been renting this property for our annual golf vacation since 2011 and have never been dissapointed. The house is everything its advertised to be and then some. The backyard has artificial grass and a 3 hole putting green that is a great warmup! The pool and spa are very relaxing especially after golf. The private setting is great and the home itself is fully equipped. Everything in the home is in great working order. The home is very clean and nice and close to the Duke for golf. In years past.when we had a problem with the pool or air con we called Christian and he responded almost immediatly and either solved the problem remotely or got a service person here within a day, He is very easy to deal with and very accomadating. We will be back next year.

After finding numerous deficiencies we did not stay at the property.

  • 1 of 5

Bird activity in the back area was out of control. Pool was filthy kitchen faucet broken Bed linens were from previous guests carpet areas had dead bugs and cereal so no one had vacumned in awhile the putting green had weeds growing through the putting cups at least 2 feet high downstairs bathroom toilet needs repair we could not find remote for living room fan and property was quite warm so fan was needed ice maker in fridge was broken apparently the neighbor parks a junkie vehicle in driveway when property is unrelated ! And the garage door was broken so access was only from in the house. I called property owner several times. Eventually I asked for a full refund and we left and spent our stay in a hotel. Very unhappy with this property it needs a lot of TLC!

Owner's Response: Lesson learned the hard way! Rita is a con women who exploited a loophole in the home away book online option. Be very carefull of book online. Rita booked online last minute through vrbo, I had to give her entry instructions prior to receiving payment to my account, I called vrbo who assured me the payment was in their account and would transfer to mine the day she left, She arrived and made false claims wanting a refund I said I could not refund as I had not received anything yet, I offered to solve all her complaints but she said they would rather leave. I have since found out she did not leave but stayed at the property! Meantime she had her credit card company remove the funds from my bank account now I have to prove that they belong to me! Bottom line I was conned by a scam artist. Beware owners of people like Rita S.

Perfect Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation property was absolutely perfect for our family! We all thoroughly enjoyed spending our days playing in the wonderful pool, hot tub, playing "mini" golf and basketball both in the pool and at the nearby basketball court. Everything we needed for a family fun week in the sun was at or near this house! Oh, and the views are beautiful too! There is really nothing more we could've asked for in a vacation spot. Thanks, Christian!

The lovely home was spacious with plenty of room for our family of four and Grandma. The upper level bedrooms were great for nap time while the rest of us played. Everything was organized, clean and all around great!

We would certainly love to come back here if our travels bring us to AZ again!

Great place to call home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 2 kids rented this home for a week this march and we could not be happier. The house itself is fully equipped and mad our stay easy. There was basic spices and condiments in the fridge, even water for when we arrived. The house was clean and tidy. The backyard is fabulous with the pool and spa which we put to good use. even though we paid extra to heat the pool , we never did as the temp was 80 everyday. Christian the homeowner/ manager was great to work with, he refunded our damage deposit within 2 weeks, and refunded the pool heat charge as well as he could see we did not heat it. We never asked him to do this, but he said he can remotely manage the pool system and see if we heated it. The backyard faces the desert mountains and is so peacefull in the evenings, the yard is huge and my kids loved it. All in all this is a great place to stay! We will come again next year.
