About the property

Bright & Cozy Pool-Side Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our Casita! Happy & active snowbirds have been visiting this cozy, quiet loft style unit since 2005. We are very appreciative of the wonderful relationships we have been building with those snowbirds who value the simplicity, quality and affordability of this vacation rental and treat this Casita as their own.

This former model has vaulted ceiling and simple Southwestern decor throughout. This sunny corner unit has no one below/above/next to any rooms.

Our Casita is conveniently located in West Mesa where everything is a short drive away. West Mesa's rapid growth brings to us lots of excitements including new Chicago Cubs/ASU stadium, light rail, museums and performing arts. ( Great golf courses and shopping at Riverview are less than 10min away, and Phoenix airport, upscale shopping and dining in Scotsdale, etc. are all less than 20min drive away.

Relax on the down filled chaise by the fireplace and watch some TV, read some books (available at the unit and at the pool) or play one of fun board games (available at the unit) while your dinner cooks in the fully equipped kitchen.

Kick back and enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese on the balcony with a view of the swimming pool, or grab the plush bathrobes and beach towels and head to the lighted / heated pool for a few laps or spa before bed.

Watch a movie (some DVDs available) in the comfortable bed before ending another exciting day in AZ......and wake up refreshed for some breakfast in the sunny kitchen!

Thank you for your interest in our Casita! We hope to welcome you to this warm and cozy vacation rental soon!

About Jack & Ayaka

Jack is a project manager for a high tech company and Ayaka is a food safety consultant.

We are blessed by wonderful tenants every year and enjoy getting to know them!

Jack & Ayaka purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jack & Ayaka chose Mesa

Mesa is known for good vacation rental but West Mesa is really the place to stay since East Mesa is pretty far from the major attractions. The airport, ASU, great golf courses, award winning performing arts center and museums, shopping and restaurants, Cubs spring training, etc. are all within a short drive.

We also like this particular area within the complex because it's away from the road, private and by the swimming pool.

What makes this condo unique

The most common comment we receive from our tenants is that they feel peaceful in this sunny light-filled loft. To us citrus lovers, the unique benefit is the tangerine tree by the message board by the pool full of sweet fruits :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo looked exactly like the pictures. The condo complex was very nice, people were very friendly, and the condo was bright and cherry. The condo itself was very well stocked and you really don't need to bring any other supplies than clothes and your personal items. The view from the condo overlooked the one pool and it was beautiful at night. If I could make a couple suggestions to the owners it would be to replace the couch (too low and hard to get out of for us Snowbirds as well as put the mattress and box spring in the master bedroom on a frame. We found the owners to be very accommodating as we change our arrival date a couple of times. The location of the condo was very convenient to grocery stores and restaurants. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

We are so excited to be able to continue our vacations to Mesa. You can read my previous review and I must say the visits just keep getting better. We have booked the casita for March of 2017 and also 2018!!! Couldn't find a more gracious and accomodating landlord than Ayaka. Thanks again for the best month of the year:)

We absolutely love this location. We have already booked return visits for 2013 and 2014. Ayaka is a wonderful landlord, easy to communicate with and genuinely concerned about the comfort of her tenants. This property is within walking distance of grocery, pharmacy, baseball stadium and park for the grandkids to play. It is just a short drive to wonderful restaurants and shopping malls. The location of the condo is fabulous because the smaller, more private pool is just across the drive. Everything you could possibly need is included from all kitchen appliances and utensils to linens. We found the complex to be quiet and friendly. There people of all ages from small children to retirees in their 80s enjoying the larger pool. What a fabulous home away from home for the vacationer. Thanks so much Ayaka!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this condo every April since 2007 and plan to return again for the sixth time in April 2012. It has all the amenities and a 30 foot walk to the pool and hot tub. It is right around the corner from CVS, the supermarket and restaurants. I started travelling to Arizona in April 2005. I stayed in Tempe the first year and Mesa in 2006 at a gated community condo. I was very fortunate to find this amazing condo and would never stay anywhere else. The owner is very pleasant and everything is always immaculate when I arrive. My wife and I look forward to this trip every year. The condo has everything we need and is accessible to anything we could want and it is in a good area, where it is quiet, but yet in a five to eight minute drive you can access the major highways. There is no place better in my opinion. In 2007, my stepdaughter and her boyfriend joined us for a week. There was plenty of room and it was very enjoyable. Lots to do for everyone and all ages right in the area. I highly recommend this condo.

Great Rental, Great Location, Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Rental: What I loved about the unit was how cheerful and bright each room was. It's a beautiful unit with vaulted ceiling which made the unit seem very roomy. I also appreciated the simple Southwestern Style decor... Kitchen had everything from toaster-oven large enough for medium size pizza, muffin pans, nice silverwares and plates, crock-pot to Wok. At night, we enjoyed watching many movies we rented from nearby Blockbusters while snuggling on the sofa or in bed. The view of the pool with lit up palm trees was very peaceful at night, too. The attached garage was very convenient whenever we had lots of groceries.

Location: We thoroughly enjoyed everything AZ has to offer! The major freeways were all 5 to 10min away, stores were just around the corner. We enjoyed various museums, performing arts centers, restaurants, malls all within 10-20min away. We took a day-trip to Grand Canyon, Sedona and enjoyed horse-back riding in Apache Junction. Squaw Peak was only 20min and we hiked up to the top a few times to enjoy the 360 degree view of Phoenix.

Owners: Jack and Ayaka were very friendly and prompt whenever we communicated with them. We appreciated their willingness to go extra miles to make us happy :)

We would definitely return if we ever have a chance to visit Phoenix!
