What a truely memorable experience! The owners came to greet you and explain how things work in the house, the house has enough basics for your needs. The bedrooms are clean and this house offers you enough room to surely feel comfortable. But... when you look at the backyard you know then that your here to relax. The pool and jaquezzi just set the tone. We thank you Tony & Helen, we feel like your our new friends. Our grandson loved the house so much he calls it now our Phoenix house.LOL.

Great golfing location

  • 3 of 5

Being Wisconsinites we greatly appreciate and enjoy our time in Phoenix just about every April. We stayed at this property for the first time in April 2017.

This is a nice but not great home to stay in. The location is great, minutes from Golf Club of Estrella, it had plenty of room and a nice backyard which was pretty private (walls). The hot tub was outstanding - large and nice set up. Groceries were close by, not many restaurants around.

In comparison to other homes we have stayed at for a similar cost, this one was not quite as clean overall (not bad but we have really high standards), there were too many personal items (clothes on the back of bathroom doors, in closets, etc., and while we knew ahead of time the pool was not being heated we would expect that to be repaired. The exterior back of the house needs some repair and up keep.

Not a bad house...we have had a better overall value at other homes for the price range. Great owners to deal with, always timely responses.

Pleasant, relaxing, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was pleasant from being welcomed by the owners upon our arrival through our month we spent there. The layout of the house was very nice, especially when we had guests. We really enjoyed the landscaping of the backyard and the hot tub.

Festive New Years Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Phoenix over the New Year's weekend. Tony and Helen met us at the house and graciously gave us the tour. The house was spacious and perfect for our family of six. All the VRBO photos accurately reflected the excellent condition of the well appointed house. Everyone had their own space and privacy but also enjoyed the open family areas. We watched the midnight New Year's fireworks from the upstairs balcony. The view was excellent! We could see the fireworks north in the valley and the neighbors in our area gave a great show. We also enjoyed the spa and pool. We would definitely come back to stay. Thank you Tony and Helen for sharing your great house.

Great House in Estrella

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to attend Spring Training games in March at Goodyear Ballpark. The house was a little further than we usually stay, but it was well worth the few extra minutes. The owners are probably the nicest people I have ever rented a property from (anywhere) and are engaged in the entire process. Helen was very responsive when I emailed questions and Tony met us at the property and showed us how everything worked and made sure everything was up to our standard. The pool and hot tub were very relaxing and the sunset from the master bedroom balcony is amazing. There is a Safeway nearby with a few restaurants around it, there are plenty of hiking trails and neighborhoods if you're into running or hiking. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need to cook and there are plenty of televisions scattered throughout for March madness. I'd highly, highly recommend this place if you're looking for a great place in Estrella. Thanks for reading.
