Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful home as we were helping our daughter move into the University of Arizona. The house was absolutely perfect! Kitchen was well equipped and house was immaculate. I would highly recommend staying here and am looking forward to our next trip to Tucson and staying here again.

Great house for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 stayed for a week in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was a previous posting about the condition of the home that had me a bit concerned, so we were pleased when we arrived that everything was as stated in the description.

The house has some wear, the carpets are not immaculate, but with a house this size that can accommodate such a large group, I'm not sure how it could be kept in any better shape.

The kitchen had everything we needed. The coffee pot does require bottled water: so if you stop at the store ahead of checking in- grab a couple jugs. There's a second refrigerator in the garage that came in handy too.

The pool is awesome and we spent most of our time swimming, floating and playing games.

We enjoyed the pool table too, when the outdoors was just too hot. The owners brought us additional pool cues when we asked, which was very appreciated too.

I could go on about the amenities - games, pool toys, plastic dishes for pool side safety. I would agree with the previous post that a few extra pillows are needed and there wasn't any extra paper towels or toilet paper in the pantry, but we just picked some up on our store runs.

The patio furniture is well worn, but served us well. I imagine with this Tucson heat, the furniture takes a beating. I think it will last a few more stays before needing to be replaced.

Convenient location, pretty views

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at this residence mid June 2017. It's in a great location, very convenient to grocery stores, shopping, and my favorite, hiking! The house is big and accommodated our family of 11. The pool was very nice to have during the very hot days! The owners were super helpful and very responsive to our needs/questions.

The reason I gave a 4 rather than 5 is primarily due to some minor-ish, but important, details. It's quite apparent that some renters must not respect other people's property - the carpets are very badly stained, there are minor things like cupboards that are hanging askew, broken components in the refrigerator, the pool table is torn, the pool cue sticks have broken or missing tips making it difficult to play. Although there is decent room in the house we found ourselves short on pillows even though the house is to accommodate a fairly large size group. There was one fold out chair thing that is stained and appears that it may be due to a child wetting on it. I understand that things happen and keeping up with damage done by renters would likely be frustrating and time consuming, but for the renters such as us who appreciate and respect other people's property, I was a little disappointed in the shape of things when you pay so much to stay somewhere. Attention to detail and cleanliness mean a lot to me.

The description states that the house is stocked with toilet paper and paper towel, etc., but we were given a very limited stock of toilet paper and no replacement paper towel. In the binder kept in the home it then states that it's requested that the renters replace any/all toilet paper and paper towel that gets used to keep it refreshed for the next renters. This doesn't lend itself to "being fully stocked" as the renters are essentially being asked to stock it for the next people.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, our kids loved the pool, and the owners were extremely helpful and responsive to our needs and questions. The location was fantastic. My primary recommendations would be to assess the damaged items for replacement, repair, or cleaning because in addition to being a little turned off by these things, I was quite worried that my damage deposit would be deducted/affected even though they were present before we arrived.

Owner's Response: I would like to respond to these issues. We do know the carpet has some stains that we cannot get out. We are replacing all carpet with wood but we are booked solid thru the middle of August so we are trying to coordinate replacing everything. The cues that had no tips, we did not realize that. We had replacement ones we would have brought over if we knew so we will make sure new ones are always there. My husband and I are there this week replacing the felt on the pool table that had a small rip by one of the holes. There are no broken cupboards so I am not sure what was meant. We had over 9 rolls of toilet paper so we are sorry if that was not enough. We also have a new pool cover. I hope this helps everyone understand the issues!! Thanks
