Paradise Valley is the most exclusive and best location in the Valley. The weather is fantastic and the GOLF, restaurants, shopping, museums, nightclubs, and sporting events are wonderful.

What makes this house unique

The home is unique and is designed to create an atmosphere of fun and excitement. We have designed the backyard for the vacationer who enjoys fun, sun, fire, games and relaxation. I enjoy the PV home as much as the Cave Creek property and thats saying alot.

John is was great to work with. Very clear communication and easy to access.

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for our stay. We had a large group and the house accommodated all of us. Maybe the the most updated property but it was exactly what we needed. The grounds and pool also worked out perfectly.

Christmas Stay

  • 2 of 5

John (Owner) was very accessable at all times and he did a great job of communicating before and during our trip He sent an instrucion manual on the property before we arrived, however, it was somewhat dated. A remote control unit on the counter was not ereferenced in the instructions buit a phone call cleared that up. Other areas of concern; we paid for a heated pool and hut tub for 4 days but the gas ran out on the third day. Finally, the property, while clean, is in dire need of updating. Specifically the bathrooms which were in average condiion at best. Several of the burners did not work as well on the stove and the handle on the kitchen sink was broken.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs. My son was getting married and I wanted a house for my extended family, all of whom had to travel. I also wanted a place for the rehearsal dinner. The house was perfect, with enough room and enough activities that everyone had fun. Furthermore, it's location was centrally located for all the planned activities and ended up being the place that people came between events. It was nice that folks came to us, even though we were the visitors. When we arrived there were a couple of maintenance issues, but a quick text to John and the problems were fixed. I would rent this home again if I had a larger group meeting in Phoenix. BTW, the tortoises were awesome.

Awesome time in the sun

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and just as advertised. The owner, John, was there to greet me and the crew we had staying at the place on the first night and gave us all the info we needed about the house as well as some recommendations about good food, golf and other local spots worth checking out. Couldn't have been more satisfied.
