About Deanna Smith

I grew up in Arizona and am currently a student at the University of Hawaii. The reason I am renting out my home is that I will be away finishing school.

Deanna Smith purchased this house in 2003

Why Deanna Smith chose Mesa

I built this home because I thought the area was nice and wanted to be close to town, but a little ways from all the hustle and bustle. I enjoy hiking and I wanted to be close to the Superstition Mountains.

What makes this house unique

There are beautiful mountain views surrounding this home.

Mesa AZ Rental

  • 5 of 5

# Property is located near Signal Butte and the east 60 in Mesa

# The home is very nice, clean and has all the little things you need for a short stay. Tableware, silverware,

pots and pans etc. It made it very easy for us.

# WiFi and cable / Dish TV kept us in touch with the world, all very nice.

I highly recommend checking this home out of the East Valley is your destination.

Felt like home during our 2 month stay!

  • 4 of 5

The owner was a genuine pleasure to deal with during our 2+ month stay. On a leap of faith, we chose this vacation rental due to its size (2000+ sf) and proximity to our house hunting target area after relocating from out of state. The property was exactly as advertised! The home was fully furnished with everything we possibly needed during our long term rental. The home was very tastefully decorated, clean and had wonderful furniture and excellent beds! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the variety of birds which frequented the lush landscaping in the backyard. This home is in a perfect location for shopping, restaurants and access to the major highways in east Mesa. The owner was quick to respond to any personal requests we had for little creature comforts. I'd definitely recommend this vacation rental to friends and family that wanted to visit. We want to extend our gratitude to the owner for making our 2 month stay so pleasurable.

Problems with the home

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the property to discover it reeked of cigarette smoke even though it's advertised as a non-smoking property. Upon contacting the owner she said the previous tenant was a smoker who was supposed to smoke outside only. Her only recommendation was to go buy some deodorizers. The smell was worst in the master suite, especially bathroom, and the family room. There was a cigarette butt in the kitchen garbage can and the can was dirty. We also found a lighter in the master bedroom behind the night stand. There also was no internet access in this home although it's advertised as having Wi-Fi. The owner did not offer any recompense for these problems. Such a shame because the home has a nice layout and is in a good location near the Superstition Mountains.

Owner's Response: I was unaware of any cigarette smell in the home prior to these renters staying in my home and notifying me there was a problem. I was still attending school in Hawaii, so there wasn't much I could do to address the problem. The home is a non-smoking property!!! After renters left I was able to visit the home and did confirm that the MASTER BATHROOM smelled of cigarette smoke. I did not notice the smell anywhere else in the home. I have since thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the bathroom from top to bottom and the smell is now gone. I have had the home rented for the past 7 straight weeks (non-smokers) and have not had any complaints, so I believe this problem has been rectified. The home does have and has had internet service. I was never informed that there was a problem accessing it, or I would have addressed it immediately. Current renters have not experienced any problems. I have now graduated from college and have returned to live in Arizona and will be able to address any issues or concerns more timely in the future to ensure that anyone who stays in my home is happy, pleased, and satisfied. Unfortunately, I can't control what people do when they stay in my home, but I will do my best to take care of any issues or problems as they arise to ensure an enjoyable stay and hope that guests want to return for their next vacation!
