About Kate

We bought this home for our family. We enjoy all that the Phoenix area has to offer and would like to share our vacation home with other families to enjoy.

Kate purchased this house in 2012

Why Kate chose Desert Ridge

The home is in the resort community of Desert Ridge. Fireside has a huge community center with two swimming pools, a spa, exercise equipment, and classes. It also has a covered park, tennis courts and basketball courts. The Desert Ridge mall is nearby and has everything you could need. The 101 freeway is only a few miles away and it's only 25 minutes to the airport.

What makes this house unique

The home is brand new with all of the amenities you'd expect on a luxury vacation. We added an outdoor fireplace to the backyard so you can sit an enjoy drinks by the fire in the double chaise lounge. The sunsets are beautiful and we love to go out on the cruiser bikes and ride around the miles of paved paths in the community. The home is comfortable and easy to be in, while still feeling the elegance and pampering you want on a vacation. We have it stocked with everything you have from home. It's truly a home-away-from-home!

Gorgeous North Phoenix Home

  • 5 of 5

My group of 6 Senior Ladies have met once a year for 37 years in different states and areas. We have rented many homes and this was the loveliest home with all and complete amenities our group needed. The owner, Kate was lovely and so easy to work with. This beautiful home was so close to so many

'shopping centers restaurants. I would HIGHLY recommend this beautiful home to any group. I do hope we will come back very soon.

Beautiful Home and Great Owners!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Phoenix for a soccer tournament and stayed at the house. It had everything we needed and then some...all the furnishings were top quality and the location was awesome. We spent a lot of time in the backyard and really enjoyed the set up. Kate is the best owner I have ever dealt with and I have rented a decent amount with VRBO. I would highly recommend this place unless it is at the same time I want it...the house had a great layout in that we all had more than enough room. It has 4 bedrooms but my 13 year old made the study her own personal room for the weekend. We used the bikes, the grill, fireplace, and most amenities. Once again, what a great place to stay and Kate was wonderful...Thanks again....

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I visited the Phoenix area for a golf trip. The house is located in a convenient area near excellent golf courses. The home itself is even better looking in person than in the pictures posted online. We were pleased with the amenities in the house. It has everything you need. The backyard is very nice for grilling and sitting by the fireplace. Kate was incredibly fast responding to any questions leading up to the trip and while we were there. If you're looking for a place to stay in Phoenix, this is a great option.

Very comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed and the Kate was so great to work with! My family traveled with both sets of grandparents and the house layout let us all have our own space with good community gathering areas. The community center is great and is a nice, short walk from the home and there is a major shopping area within 5 minutes. It's close to the highways for easy access to the rest of Phoenix. Having the bikes available was a nice perk for us to get out for longer, quick exploration of the area. Everything was well maintained and the house was stocked with everything we needed. We all were very pleased and would recommend staying here and would definitely stay again if we come back to the area.

Wonderful Hacienda in Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house, so well appointed and comfortable. We felt at home immediately and it had all the amenities you could ask for. It has an open concept kitchen, dining and family room, the master bedroom and bathroom were spacious and lovely, and all of the bedrooms and bathrooms had everything you could need. We so enjoyed having tennis courts and a recreational center with pools, sauna and workout area just a short walk away. The kitchen is well stocked and we loved being able to make breakfast and lunch (sometimes) at home. The location in Phoenix is great-- the Desert Ridge Mall is a short distance away and you can stock up at Albertson's, dine at one of many restaurants, go shopping, or see a movie. There were many bikes to ride and we even checked out the MIM--the Musical Instruments Museum just a few blocks away--what a neat museum. Kate was a pleasure to deal with. We just arrived back home tonight and I can tell you that everyone in our group wanted to stay a few extra days! All in all, a perfect home for a memorable vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks Shari for taking time to provide a review! It means so much to us to bring happiness to you and your family on your vacation. We go on vacations ourselves and we always want a place that still has all of the comforts and conveniences of home. We'd love to have you come back anytime! We have a new VRBO in Winter Park, CO (#651315) if you are looking for a ski vacation or a summer mountain get-away. We'd love to have you visit there too! All the best for the new year! Kate and Brad

Fabulous home and amenities for family

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is wonderful. We have four children under the age of 6. This home allowed us to be spread out, but also together with no trouble. The home is immaculately kept, and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. My daughter decided when we arrived that the house was made for her, because her room came with a desk and art supplies! Kate was also well organized; we had no problem getting into the property and the binder provided provide all information we could need.

If you stay here I recommend paying for the clubhouse pass. It is a very short walk and the facility is great. It has a lap pool, a pool with fountains that starts at 1 ft. deep and gradually becomes deeper, a splash pad (beside the pool), we well maintained gym, tennis and basketball courts, as well as two playgrounds.

Desert Ridge mall is a short drive away, which was convenient for everything from emergency swim trunks to groceries. The Musical Instrument Museum is also just around the corner, and it has something for everyone. While it is a bit of a drive to downtown, the freeways are easy to navigate, and we had no problems getting in and out of town.

We look forward to coming back to Arizona and staying at this property again.
