About Kyler/Paul

A father and son team. We love to travel, we love to be outdoors.

We have owned these units for three years and our response has been great. We also have a second and third Red Rox unit , a two bedroom one bath unit and a two bedroom two bath unit also listed on See 345808.

Kyler/Paul purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kyler/Paul chose Phoenix

Phoenix is a great vacation destination. It has hiking, golfing, shopping, and all sorts of sporting events to watch. You can hike, bike, check out ASU, downtown Tempe, or ride the light rail all the way to Mesa or Glendale or downtown where the Diamondbacks play. What you will find unique here is that its close to the Papago Park area but also close to the 202 so you can get around when you need to without fighting traffic in town. The combination will grow on you after you have experienced Phoenix.

What makes this condo unique

Easy access to highways, hiking, and cool downtown areas. This property has location location location. We think the quality compares to a three or four star hotel or resort and you are paying the same as a decent hotel. What you will learn is that for every meal or drink you have at home, or at the pool, you save a huge amount of dollars. Everyone eats out once a day but its those two other meals and drinks at retail establishments that run up the cost of a vacation. A kitchen saves all that. The two pools and the common areas and clubhouse are resort quality. Its a gated community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were also double booked by Paul and Kyler for their other two bedroom unit (345808) that particular weekend of March 28, 2014. From what I have been able to surmise, Paul and Kyler suspect a software issue in the mobile calendaring application. Once they became aware of the mistake, they took complete responsibility regardless of cause and endeavored to find me alternate accommodations and did so by buying a week in another unit and making it available for us in the alternative, which we accepted. They were very apologetic and professional. Paul owns a part of that unit # 2006 which wasn't available for our full week and I understand he had to pay the next guest to come a day later so we could stay the entire week as originally planned. The new unit was closer to the pool and had another bathroom. He worked with Debbie the day to day manager in that unit, to make our time seamless except for the immediate problems. The contract for our original stay only required that he give us our money back. I think he really tried to make it right.

I understand that Paul offered the other guest a similarly priced week at half off in the future if they wanted to try again to compensate them.

I found him to be very honorable in light of the mistake. They tell me they have instituted procedures to provide a fail safe so that it doesn't happen again and from their reviews and my experience, I would not let this errata dampen a future guests enthusiasm. Deb, whom we worked with personally verified the problem with the mobile application software and that Paul was double checking reservations being entered with her since our experience that weekend. Its probably a good lesson that any guest should check their reservation on the system immediately after payment and periodically so it would not happen on short notice again. Software can fail. Paul tells us he now asks guests, in writing, to verify at their own computer, the reservation being entered as well as later checking it on a laptop or desk computer, as well as his smartphone.

Quite and great location

  • 5 of 5

Red Rox is beautifully landscaped with two pools and a putting green. It's location near the Tempe water front and downtown, as well as across the street from Papago Park with a public golf course, zoo and botanical gardens made it a perfect place to enjoy our week stay. This was a last minute rental for us and Paul made it very easy to do it quickly and efficiently. He was available within a few minutes for any questions or needs we had. We couldn't find the iron and Paul appeared in no time with one. (Not quite sure how he did that since he lives in Montana!) The condo is on the second floor which could be a problem for anyone who has an issue with that for there is no elevator. However, being higher up kept us above any car noise. The condo is perfect for a couple, especially if you have a student at ASU you wish to visit.

Perfect place for a working vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I do a lot of work remotely and so was looking for a sunny place to work but also have some fun. I found it here. Setting up the reservation was smooth and I even had several phone conversations with Paul to make sure things were going OK. When I arrived everything was just as expected. It was a great place to work from. My "poolside" office was exceptional. The condo itself was clean and very comfortable. Sitting and relaxing on the balcony was nice especially in the evenings. The location was great. Close to the airport and the real treat was being right across the street from Papago Park. I went there every day to walk in the desert terrain, climb the rocks, and watch the sunset (a "must do" experience). Being from a place where winters are cold, wet and dark this was a real treat. I hope to plan another trip next winter and will definitely look into booking from Paul and Kyler.

Convenient Phoenix Location

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with our stay in this condo. The owner was particularly helpful in making our reservation and was responsive to our questions and concerns upon our arrival. The instructions for entry arrived as promised and were easy to follow. This condo is in an excellent location in Tempe with hiking, the zoo and the botanical gardens nearby. I recommend this property to anyone wanting a modest base for activities in the Phoenix valley.

A month on the sun

  • 4 of 5

Spent the month of February in this unit. It was exactly as advertised - the nicest condo we have stayed in at this price level. Kitchen is adequately equipped for full cooking. The grounds and pools are especially lovely and well maintained. Excellent location with good access to freeways.

Great Little Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo at Red Rox was exactly as described in the listing. This was the perfect property for our vacation, just the right size for our family (my wife and I and our 1 year old son). The modest 1 bedroom condo was well equipped with just about everything we needed for our week long trip. The location was also great with Papago Park just across the street and the Phoenix Zoo within walking distance. The pools were great and the grounds within the gated community are clean and very well taken care of. We didn't have any issues finding parking near the unit the entire week we stayed there.

As Canadians we were unable to obtain the required rental insurance for the property and Paul allowed us to make a larger damage deposit in lieu. At first this had us a little leery about the rental as we have rented other properties through VRBO before and never ran into this obstacle before, however after a few discussions with Paul and we were completely comfortable with the arrangement. As a business man and a property owner myself I can appreciate Paul wanting to protect his investment. It would be great if everyone were to treat your home like it were their own, but we know that isn't always the case. :(

In closing we are very likely to return to Phoenix in the future and when we do we will stay at Paul's Red Rox property.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

stayed 2 weeks for a class for work. Great location and nice facility. Close to the zoo, botanical garden, disc golf, and all sorts of places to eat. Relatively easy to get places without getting too snarled up in the traffic. Owner was communicative and responsive. Only hiccup was a change to the gate entry code that the owner didn't know about yet. Would definitely consider staying here again if in Phoenix.

Car: recommended

This gated condo development is just northwest of the Lake Tempe, close to the light rail, close to the Zoo, the A's spring training stadium, the Botanical Gardens, across the street from Papago Park and its LPGA site golf course and miles of hiking and natural walking trails. Easy to get to Scottsdale, ASU, via the 202 or the airport, this location is close to it all. Yet it seems a world away when you are sitting near the pool, with the fountains and palms swirling in the warm air around you. NEW CARPET ON APRIL 25, 2014
