About Shonna Harper

We are native Montanans that love to travel to warm places. There is so much to do in Glendale as far as professional sporting events, concerts, shopping, and good restaurants!

Shonna Harper purchased this house in 2011

Why Shonna Harper chose Villa De Paz

We chose this home because it is on a golf course and is so close to hockey, football, baseball, and concerts. There are wonderful restaurants and shopping next to the sports stadiums so there is no need to get on the interstate (Loop 101) and very little time spent to get to these attractions from the house.

What makes this house unique

We love this home ande we remodeled it to be comfortable and inviting for not only us but visitors also. The neighbors are all very friendly and the home is so close to the Gila River Arena and Phoenix University stadiums as well as Camelback Ranch Spring Training stadium that it makes it the ideal sports fan retreat.

A Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3-months in this beautiful house that had everything we needed and more. Because it is on a public golf course every morning we would eat our breakfast on the patio in the backyard. The morning sun was warm and the stillness of the day except for the birds singing was a 'dream come true'. The neighbor across the street (Dean) is a wealth of knowledge and is helpful in many ways. Over the 3-month stay we became good friends with Dean and invited him over for snacks and beverages many times during our stay. This house has a lot of space and is very comfortable in any of the rooms; whether its the large sofa in the living room, the high top chairs at the kitchen counter or the relaxing beds in any of the 3 bedrooms. The backyard is THE BEST as we spent every day out there with our 5-lb. Yorkie who could roam about and never leave our sight. We grilled out 3 or 4 times a week on the backyard patio and sometimes ate our meals out there. We also found the places we wanted to go were close by like a grocery store, a drug store, multiply eating places, shopping centers, golf courses and spring training facilities. We would highly recommend this place whether its one month or longer as it has everything you need. The couple that owns this house is very easy to work with, and will respond to your questions in a timely manner. Don't miss out on booking this house because it will rent quickly. We hope other people will enjoy this house as much as we did during our wonderful stay in AZ. It was definitely a 'dream come true' winter for us in warm sunny AZ. We will be back!

Nice House in a Good Location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I rented this home for the month of March 2015. We are in our mid-sixties and love to spend the month of March in the Phoenix area for baseball, golf and the perfect weather. The backyard of the house has a private yard with a good view of the 7th hole of a golf course that meanders through the neighborhood ( we had 31 balls land in our yard during the month). There is a small patio that provides great shade in the afternoon and early evening.

This home is about one mile from Camelback Ranch (White Sox-Dodgers) and just a few miles away from the expressways and a large shopping/entertainment district.

The house itself is in a very quiet neighborhood. We found it to be nicely decorated and comfortable. All the appliances worked perfectly and we especially appreciated the alarm system. The landlord provided a terrific binder with directions, baseball schedules, and restaurant info. We needed to contact the owner once for a minor electrical issue and she was easy to reach.

We have rented in the Phoenix area for several years and found this to be once of our best experiences.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house as a winter get away and we were not disappointed it was every thing we expected, the one neighbor across the street was very helpful when I had questions about the area. It is so close to all the main sporting events, and a lot of nice golf courses, the one the property sits on is great but I like to move around.

We will not hesitate to rent again the next time we go back.

What a awesome home away from home Thanks for letting us rent it

We enjoyed our stay in this house. It was very clean when we arrived, in a quiet neighborhood with two neighbors whom we met were very friendly. Located on 7th hole of golf course enjoyed lunch and sitting on patio watching golfers. Close to ball diamonds, Westgate outlet mall, Jobing Arena, Fry's grocery 2 min away. All we needed was in the house. Would recommend to anyone.

Glendale vs Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

I had one would appear that a neighbour had access to the property at all times. We were not aware that he entered the property during our stay, but the fact that he could was quite disconcerting. My companion was disturbed by this fact. Otherwise, a lovely home-away-from-home.

Owner's Response: Our kind, helpful, 83 year old neighbor Dean, does not have the security code necessary to access the home and (as she mentioned in her 5 star review) he did not enter the home at any time during their stay. Apparently he asked the "companion" if she wanted the garbage taken from the garage to the street and she agreed. I apologize if this was "disconcerting" for her.

Very comfortable and convienient property!!

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I rented this property with another couple for Spring Training Games. We are from Texas so we wanted to go to Surprise but we also wanted to see as many games as we could. The property is located within walking distance to Camelback Ranch where the White Sox and Dodgers play. The farthest park is only 40 minutes away. The property itself was very nice and clean. It was perfect size for the 4 of us, it could accommodate a few more comfortably.

I really enjoyed waking up in the morning and going out to the back patio to watch golfers on the course behind the house. We played the course one day and it was fairly nice as well!

The owners were very helpful with directions on how to work everything and what was near by. I would highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the Glendale/Phoenix area!
