Beautiful home close to everything, loved the volleyball court!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 came out for a 4 day getaway and we couldnt have foundthe more perfect house for our stay! The owner just added a beach volleyball court and outdoor firepit. What a fun amenity! We couldnt get the kids inside! We also loved the outdoor pool table and heated pool and spa. Oh and one more thing, we loved how every room had a tv and appreciated the keurig. We will be back soon. - The Shearons

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our first home to rent through Home Away. Our family really enjoyed this house. The only suggestion would be to fix the blinds. Several blinds are missing the "rods" to open/close them.

To prevent issues such as these we have a professional inspection prior and after each reservation. We also have a 24 hour maintenance team that can be reached out to during your reservation.

very private, loved the big peaceful yard and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? We came out for a family vacation and rented this 3 bedroom home in Kierland. We absolutely enjoyed the peaceful back yard and large diving pool. The back yard was very quiet and the best place to enjoy your coffee in the morning while listening to the birds chirp away. The beds were all very comfortable, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals and bbq. The master bathroom was huge and had a jaccuzzi tub and walk in shower, felt very luxurious! The guys loved the outdoor pool table and also the outdoor spa after a long day of golf. Truly a wonderful experience. We will book this home again next year when we return. Thanks!

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property is nice and had the features we were looking for: plenty of space, pool, hot tub, and entertainment (pool table, TVs). However, it is definitely a rental and is showing some wear.

The Good:

1) Easy to get in/out without having to visit the property management company in person. Everything can be done via email.

2) Feels like a vacation property - no personal homeowner belongings laying around.

3) A heated pool in the cooler Spring weather was really nice.

4) They layout easily accommodated our family and gave plenty of space for the kids to play/sleep/bathe.

5) The inside of the home was clean and welcoming.

The Bad:

1) Lots of little maintenance issues for the money we paid: missing turning rods for the blinds; bird poop on all the patio furniture (that was not fun to clean off!); burned out pool/hot tub lights; really hard beds; old decaying phone book used to level the outdoor pool table.

2) NOT a fully stocked kitchen. It had some of the basics, but missing some key essentials. Only 8 plates/bowls really makes you do dishes after every meal if you are vacationing as a family. There is no baking sheet or bottle opener, and only the most basic of cooking spices.

3) No broom is available to sweep the outside patio from all the pine needles. You'll have to get creative.

4) Overall we do not feel we got the value for what we paid - the property management company has a way to nickel and dime you for everything. We paid 44% on top of the daily rental just in taxes and fees with a surprise fee from VRBO's parent company HomeAway.

Personally, I would try a different rental/rental company next time.

Owner's Response: Kristil, Thank you for your feedback! We have since replaced the missing turning rods for the blinds! Our cleaners have been instructed to clean up the bird poop on all the patio furniture after each check out! As you can imagine, its hard to keep up on this as guests sometimes move the furniture after it has been cleaned, only to find that it gets dirty when put under shade trees! We are keeping an eye on this for the future (grrr birds) The burned out bulbs have been replaced, guests sometimes leave these on for their entire stay – so I apologize that we were able to replace them fast enough! Pillow tops have been added to the beds! The pool table outside has been professionally leveled. The kitchen utensils have been replenished to include all of the items in our required inventory list! There actually was a baking sheet and bottle opener, I wish you would have given us a call and we would have pointed you in the right direction! Also, don’t forget, you can always call us and we will deliver spices or whatever you need during your stay! A broom has been added. I’m sorry that you felt we nickeled and dimed, we have to cover our cost to ensure that we are able to service the properties in a timely manner. That said, I certainly hope you will give us another chance as we have listened to your feedback and adjust accordingly! All the best, Book My Vacay

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our group of 3 couples in town for a long weekend of golfing and relaxing in the sun! Everything is even better than the photos! Super clean, updated, comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood, beautiful backyard, patio and pool all to ourselves. We golfed several times in the North Scottsdale area and the location was perfect for our plans. Lots of great dining options nearby, Old Town is not far, grocery stores very close. House is a quick and easy drive from PHX. Book My Vacay was always quick to respond and took care of everything we needed or asked about including a great restaurant recommendation, and allowing us a later check-out on our last day, as there was not a check-in that day. This few hours of extra time was so appreciated! We highly recommend this house or any other listings by Book My Vacay, and we definitely hope to stay again on a future trip!!!

Very Nice but.............

  • 3 of 5

On a positive note, the home is spacious, beautifully landscaped and can comfortably accommodate 6. The pool and hot tub are terrific and the backyard is a great retreat. The management team is quick to respond.

The reasons this is no 5 star property are as follows:

-mattresses are what you'd expect at a discount hotel

-pillows are barely better than what you'd get on an airline

-furniture is sparse and quite frankly cheap

-lighting throughout the house is in desperate need of more wattage (could not read with bed side lamp)

-dishware is lacking (we were constantly washing)

-bare cupboards -no sugar, spices, condiments etc,. which you typically find left by previous guests

We've rented many 5 star rentals over the years with great success. While this property is nice, it certainly is not worthy of that designation.

Owner's Response: Duffer, Thanks for your comments! Since your stay; the mattresses have pillow-tops now, the pillows have been replaced (company standard) more furniture has been added (my apologies if you thought it was cheap) wattage/bulbs have all been upped or replaced throughout the house! We have also gone through our inventory sheet to ensure that all kitchen utensils are present. We also went ahead and added sugar, spices, condiments as they were heavily used for grilling in this beautiful backyard! We sincerely apologize for these difficulties you experienced and hope that you will try us again! Best, Book My Vacay
