Perfect location, well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week while my son was in a baseball tournament. It's a ten minute drive to the fields in Peoria, and about thirty minutes to Goodyear, so it was very convenient. The home was well stocked with everything you could need or might have forgotten. They really thought of everything. The waterfront views are beautiful in the evenings, and the pool was perfect for the kids to cool off and play. We hope to be back again for another tournament in the future.

Great Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

If you’re wanting a great VRBO, this one is a winner!!

This home is every bit as beautiful as it is in the pictures. It was our first time staying at a VRBO. What an experience! The property was clean and well-maintained. This lakefront home was gorgeous, spacious, and had everything we needed.

All the beds were comfortable including the Play-n-Pack bed for our grandson. Lots of towels, great smelling hand soaps, hairdryer, and a washer and dryer with detergent to use as well as a vacuum. Even had some toys and a cool animal sound book that our grandchildren played with for hours. The kitchen was fantastic. Great selection of pots and pans, a crockpot, plates, glassware, silverware and a toddler fork and spoon set. Even a waffle maker! Well stocked with spices, olive oil, flour, sugar, coffee and ziplock baggies! My family really loved sitting on the dock at the water’s edge, watching the ducks and sipping on our morning coffee. So peaceful. We enjoyed the electric paddleboat. The pool was a treat; chilly due to the winter time but that didn’t stop some of us. The home is about a 5 minute drive from Fry’s grocery store. Also quite close to shopping areas and restaurants. The neighborhood is very quiet. Nice neighbors as well. We had such an amazing time there we didn't want to leave! The owners were so easy to work with and communicated quickly to our questions. Craig and Becky have really thought about what families might need while vacationing away from their homes. Kudos!

Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week at this house. This home far exceeded my expectations. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. It was a pleasure working with the owner Craig. The house was very clean and updated, the beds very comfortable, and the outside backyard very peaceful. The pictures of the home doesn't do it justice, much nicer than they indicate. It was a lot of home for the price. I don't think you will find a better value for a home in the greater Phoenix area. If I return to Phoenix, this home would be my first choice. Anyone looking for a rental in the area, do yourself a favor a rent this one, trust me you won't be disappointed. Thank you very much for a great stay Craig.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Great week! Very comfortable house. Comfortable beds. The kitchen is well stocked with many things that typically you don't find in a rental. Very quiet neighborhood. Our kids loved riding around the lake in the electric paddle boat. The pool was too cold to swim in, which was the only bummer. We spent a lot of our week watching the Cleveland Indians. This home was in a good location to do so. Several restaurants and grocery stores close by. Craig was great to work with. I would highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. Truly glad your time was good. Usually nice but not swimming weather this time of year. It''s like a heat wave. Locals are worried about summer, too early for this. Crazy weather. Some of our guests grandkids swam a few weeks ago. Kids, they don't know any better. Thank you Craig

Nice little place

  • 5 of 5

We visited recently in August to see our new grandbaby, our primary goal was to be as close as possible to our daughter and found this to be a great location, was close to the 101 and very easy to get around. The area is definitely on the better side of Glendale, there were many amenities within walking distance. The home was the perfect size and was stocked with almost everything one needs and then some, the owner is very generous with their supplies which was very appreciated. The pool was a nice feature given it was 115 everyday. We also appreciated having garage space to park our car as it was too hot to leave it outside. Thanks for a great place to stay, we'll definitely look for availability the next time we visit. Raines Family

Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Rarely does a vacation rental exceed expectations. We have rented numerous properties through VRBO and never been let down but this property truly did exceed. Our family of 4 visited January 2015 and found the house to be fully stocked with everything you could require and it was very, very clean. The neighborhood was nice with some truly spectacular properties, and the canal system was great fun to explore. There is fantastic hiking right out of the community without even driving, and all amenities you would need were just blocks away.

The owners Craig and Becky followed up right till our vacation started and made sure everything was fine on our arrival. Overall a great experience and we would recommend this property to any family looking for a high quality Arizona rental property.
