For the summer season only, the renter will be responsible for the full cost of electricity in addition to rent. Natural gas, water, garbage, high speed internet, and satellite TV are included in the rent. The site will not allow me to add a different damage/security deposit, but for summer rentals we require $900. For renters who are looking for more than one month, we can work out a payment plan--the site will not allow us to specify this in advance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: George and Brenda are retired and had rented in the Phoenix area for a few years before purchasing a home. Having been renters, we wanted to make sure that our home has everything that our guests would need for a relaxing and enjoyable Arizona experience. We have made every effort to ensure that everything anyone could want is in our home: extremely comfortable beds, good exercise equipment, tennis rackets, bikes (with helmets and locks), golf clubs (suitable for beginners), pool toys, hiking poles, stereo, DVD player and 2 large flat screen TVs. We also have “what to see” reference books for hiking and sight seeing in greater Phoenix area as well as a binder full of our favourite activities including hikes, entertainment, shopping, etc. Our kitchen is very well equipped dishes and glasses for 12, quality flatware for 12, blenders, bowls, etc, as we like to be able to entertain friends. You will also enjoy wireless high-speed internet and unlimited long distance to Canada and the USA which our guests can use to contact us and we can answer any of your questions or deal with any problems easily. Brenda is a retired high school art teacher and has focused on creating attractive surroundings with original art displayed on the walls. George and Brenda use the property in early fall and late spring to ensure the house and yard is fully maintained and extremely clean before our winter guests arrive. We also are very anxious to know ASAP if there are any problems or concerns that our guests have. We hope that you will enjoy our home.
