"A recent study by New York University found that hotels and resorts collected $2.25 BILLION in surcharges last year. Virtually no hotels disclose the fees in their initial online rate quotes. At best, you have to click to another screen to get the “all-in” price, including the mandatory resort fee; at worst, you don’t find out about it until you check out. Customers also complain that hotels don’t tell them about the fees when they make hotel reservations."

We give you a TOTAL, ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE, up front when we respond to your inquiry. There are no add-ons. 50% is due at time of booking, 50% is due 2 weeks prior to your arrival. The VRBO website will automatically send payment request links to your email. Simple.

About Norman

My wife & I don't get enough sun up here in Seattle during the winter, so we bought this beautiful home so we could 'get our fill'. Our friend Pat lives 2 blocks away from this rental so she is helping us manage it.

Norman purchased this house in 2010

Why Norman chose Rancho Gabriela

Warmer sunny winters, Surprise Stadium, Surprise Tennis Complex, beautiful golf courses, desert hiking, all short drives away.

What makes this house unique

Sipping coffee in the morning and having breakfast while reading the paper outside by the pool. Going for a walk in the park at sunrise, putting in a good movie in front of the fireplace or sitting outside by the pool and enjoying a glass of wine before bed.

spacious house, relaxing pool

  • 5 of 5

We chose Norm's house in Surprise, AZ so we could go to some Spring Training games and golf. This was the perfect location for both! There were numerous stadiums within a half hour drive to go to, and triple that for golf courses. We were able to pick oranges and lemons at a ranch within a 15 minutes drive. There were also numerous hiking trails that were easily accessible in the area. Norm was quick to answer our calls and could easily answer all our questions. His manager Pat dealt with our concerns promptly and efficiently. We needed 4 bedrooms and this was one of the few locations we found that had that.

Great family place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location in a quiet neighborhood.

Very well furnished kitchen with all the necessities of home. Plenty of room and comfortable beds and linens. We did not have great weather but the pool and backyard were very nice. There is also a nice pellet grill that we were able to use.

It was nice to have Pat, as a contact person to give us a walkthrough when we arrived.

We would definitely stay here again.

Fun In The Sun

  • 5 of 5

This home has a great location in a quiet neighborhood, only two stop light from the Surprise Spring Training Complex. Nicely furnished inside and out. The House is very clean and the pool is crystal clear and heated. This home is well stocked with everything you need and the newspaper is in the driveway every morning. The owners and property manger are first class folks going out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We have stayed twice in this location and have a future booking.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as promised. The pool was great and definitely needed the heat in December. The house was perfect for 4 couples and had plenty of space to relax. We would absolutely recommend this property and would return again.
