About Kimberly Crites

We are from Rural Washington State, we purchased the home as the weather is better for William's arthritis. We try to get down as much as possible, but we still have an 18 year old in school. We love our time down there. I often hike right from the house, three blocks of pavement, and you are on a trail system that takes you through the surrounding mountains. We love snow skiing, and water sports. We hope you will entrust us in your vacation needs. William is retired from the Department of Defense, and I work in Residential Sales and property management.

This home is now for sale, it includes all furnishings, linens, towells, dishes, glassware, the whole lot including the 5 star established VRBO business. Its a great package deal with established tenants. It allows you to own and use the house, while absorbing the cost of owning with your rental income. Last year we grossed $80,000.

Call me if interested. 1-360-731-0177

William's health is declining, and we just are not able to get down and use the house anymore.

Kimberly Crites purchased this house in 2011

Why Kimberly Crites chose Westwing Mountain

I am meticulous, the house got all brand new furniture when purchased, new paint, new heat pump for pool, pretty much everything has been done to it. Replanted yards, new outdoor furniture ect.

It is near perfect, the last thing on our list is to get the surround sound up and running. See last review! :)

What makes this house unique

Owner managed means a much more detailed and personal stay.

We want our tenants to want to return, or send us a postive review or send a potential stay our way.

Repeat customers will receive a monetary benifit in their return stay.

Free pool heat or free night with 4 purchased if they leave positive review.

We like to rent to the same ppl every year.

Had a few small issues that the owner quickly and graciously took care of. This is a great home for a family vacation. The kids were happy to spend whole days enjoying the pool.

Home Run

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property last week with five friends and it was perfect home base for a sports-themed week. All Cactus League venues are between 15 and 50 minute drive; Suns and Coyotes about 25-30 minutes.

House was the perfect size for the six of us. We each had our own bed and plenty of privacy.

Well stocked with everything needed: towels, toiletries, kitchenware, etc.

Owner called day before we arrived to give me particulars and let me know everything was good to go...nice touch. We had no issues but I'm certain there would have been a quick response if we needed to reach out for any reason.

Backyard was great and we spent most of our time there while home. Gets chilly at night and in morning so I highly recommend paying up to heat the pool.

All in all....nothing but good things to say!

Loved this vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Ten of our 3 generation family spent 5 glorious days over Thanksgiving week 2017! Everything was impeccable and the well stocked kitchen made everything easy for us. We all enjoyed the heated pool, especially our 4 and 7 year old grandsons, who spent hours sliding and splashing the days away....we only wish we had more time to stay and hope to visit again.

Great property; unexpected expenses; lack of communication

  • 3 of 5

We rented a home that claimed to sleep 20 at a cost of $350 a night. Upon booking five nights and expecting a cost of $1750 we received a bill of $3100. There were fees and charges that had not been explained and were unreasonable but my credit card was already charged. We booked the house for 8 people, were charged for additional guests, heating the pool (in June in Phoenix?) and several other fees that I cannot explain as the itemized statement disappeared in our communications. I did hear from the owner when she had concerns about the event we were booking the home for...we had a family death and were housing family from the east coast. At the time I raised the question about the fees but since I wasn't at my computer when we talked I wasn't able to go over all of the concerns. She called me back an hour later telling me that she had made a $500 refund...very nice but that still cost me $2600 for five nights for what turned out to be 4 people. The website and book in the home detailing the amenities had the owner's phone number everywhere with requests that if there were issues to contact her. Before the reservation even began we tried to reach her but our calls were never answered. The day of the reservation we finally received the code for the home after texting for it and that response said how she preferred texts rather than calls. The home is terrific. But please beware of unexpected fees and costs. I regret not putting insurance on the reservation but that was my oversight due to the stressful time we were facing.

Owner's Response: I called you back when you were upset with the fees. There are fees associated with renting through VRBO, I do not receive the funds that they charge for their service. They charge a % on top of the quote. There is tax and cleaning as well, these I also don't receive. I spoke with you via phone, when you stated that you were upset with the additional charges. I immediately called VRBO, who built your automatic quote and reduced it. I did not build the quote. My base rate is for 6 ppl, each additional person is $15 a day based on usage of water and house supplies which my site states. I always release the code the morning of check in. Four days into the stay, you notified me that you were no longer needing the house. Perhaps, the reason you are upset is that you wanted me to refund you more. I am really frustrated that I received this bad review, when I did everything to make you happy. This was you first time using VRBO and renting a home, and I don't think the service is for you. And yes, the house is awesome! I pride myself in managing it myself and have repeat customers who come back for year after year.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

March 2017 - Entire family went to Phoenix to celebrate a birthday and for Spring Training. The house was more than big enough for 8 of us. We were pleasantly surprised at how well the kitchen was stocked with basics. The owner is super responsive and accommodating. It was only about a 25 minute drive to Camelback Ranch. Hiking trails were walking distance to the house and the pool was fabulous. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back.
