Five star stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed for one week at the end of July to the beginning of August at Rodney's beautiful home. This was our first time in Arizona and we absolutely loved Chandler. It is such a clean and gorgeous city. The backyard feels like a resort and it is very private and quiet. We loved the palm trees and beautiful flowers in the yard. Even though it was quite hot (40°c) we still managed to enjoy the backyard because of the misting system, pool and centrally air conditioned home . Everything you could think of is here in this vacation rental. Kitchen spices, some food (take some and leave some), two ice makers, filtered water in the fridge, oils, shampoo and conditioner, soap, towels, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, fans, tv's with many channels, golf cart, pool toys, radio and much more. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all had a fantastic sleep. The house has a great layout and the rooms were all a very good size. The sofas in the living room are so comfortable and perfect for relaxing and watching movies at night. Our damage deposit was returned within a few days of our departure. Do not hesitate to rent this gorgeous home! You will not regret it.

Lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our kids/grandkids that live close by. It was well-equipped with everything needed, and it was really nice of Rodney to make sure that we were comfortable and happy, as well as suggest nearby activities and places to eat. It is in a residential neighborhood, but once you walk through the front gate, it feels like you are at a resort, far away from the "real world". Even though we were there at such a hot time of year, the pool and misters made it enjoyable to be outside and the kids loved coming over to the pool to play (lots of toys and floats available), and then BBQ followed by family time inside with games at the dining table which was plenty large enough to fit us all. Wonderful place, would highly recommend and look forward to visiting again!!

Awesome place!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to beat the summer heat. Beautiful pool and misters, we spent 6 days on the patio in 110 degrees with no problem. Just two of us this year, but we loved it and summer price is quite reasonable. Thanks Rodney!!

Everything you want in a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Rodney is the perfect host. He made everything easy to access and has thought of almost everything you'd need. If something goes awry, he quickly takes care of it.

Consider this your own private compound. It's completely walled off from the outside world. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, it's the perfect location to relax and get away. On the rare occasions you want to leave this comfortable home, there are plenty of malls nearby (which my wife and daughters enjoyed) and there are plenty of golf courses nearby (two HOA courses), which my son-in-law and I enjoyed.

I don't need to go into detail about the house because you can see the pictures and read the description above. I will try to focus on some "extras" that Rodney may have missed or I didn't notice.

1. There is a Keurig.

2. The freezer has an ice-maker but there is also a stand-alone ice-maker in the "pantry". We went through lots of ice.

3. Rodney has a 'use a little, leave a little' policy that seems to work well. You use some of the spices, ketchup, mustard, relish, mayo that's left in the fridge and you leave a little of something that won't spoil for the next guests. We left some coffee packs, sugar, frozen berries, extra pound of bacon, etc.

4. The golf cart has it's own garage with a garage-door-opener clipped to the golf cart. There are 5 sets of golf clubs (left- and right-handed), with tees, balls, towels... everything you need. PLEASE REPLACE LOST BALLS. :) At final count, we lost four of Rodney's golf balls but left 6 in the golf cart for the next guest.

5. The garage has 4 or 5 bicycles, sporting equipment, coolers, etc.

6. Washer and dryer are in the garage.

7. Next to the pool is a box that contains all the balls, floats, noodles you'll need... including a shaded float for infants (which we were planning to buy!)

8. If you come in the summer, prepare for HEAT. The pavement around the pool will burn your skin if you don't wear shoes. It will also melt a fit-bit if you set it on the ground... ask me how I know.

One final note. This is Rodney's home. He stays here when he's in the area. He has an "owner's dresser" and a few clothes in a couple of closets. This is my third HomeAway rental but I think the first where I felt like the owner is really in touch with what's going on at the house. He keeps it up to speed because he stays here, too! I found that comforting.

BTW... he's got a property in Cabo San Lucas. Maybe my next big vaca?

The AZ Lifestyle, it's all here!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you would want for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. The house is thoughtfully stocked with every gadget and appliance you would want. We enjoyed the pool for hours and hours every day, and then the BBQ and a nice dinner around the dining room table with doors open to the evening air. Great house for a multi-generational family reunion!

Beautiful home with many many amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed Rodney's home. The furnishings were lovely, the towels and sheets decadent. It felt like the perfect combination of high end home and hotel. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need for making meals. Little details like the spice wrack and condiments to help yourself to and the fruit trees in the yard and juicer was great. The backyard was stunning and we enjoyed lounging by the pool, using the outdoor BBQ and in evenings we relaxed by the outdoor fire pit. Having four bikes to use was great and we toured around the community and adjoining communities. The clubhouse restaurant serves a really nice breakfast and the grocery store less than 5 minutes drive away was very convenient. The community was nice and quiet. Overall a five star experience and home. Thanks !
