About the property

1 bath, Queen bed and Queen pull out sofa

Casita Michaela sleeps up to 4 persons.1 bathroom w/shower . Our 2 acre private property includes mature orange, pink grapefruit trees. Imagine juicing fresh citrus picked right from the trees! We have newly planted lemon and Mandarin orange trees. There are Eucalyptus trees that line the pasture. We also have chickens, so when the girls are cooperating you have fresh farm eggs available to you. We have beautiful mountain views. Our property is fully fenced in with an electronic security gate at the driveway. We have RV parking. For those with horses, there is a 1 acre pasture, 3 horse mare motel with automatic water. Our property is a unique vacation rental property because of its convenient location to all the amenities in the city, yet the best of quiet country living. Casita Michaela is warm and inviting and a very peaceful and quiet place to get away and relax. There is plenty of space to roam around and plenty of private space to enjoy the solitude. Numerous outdoor spaces to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets. We have entertained many guests from all over the world and all have loved staying at Casa Michaela for rest and relaxation.

SPRING TRAINING Surprise Stadium, home to the Texas Rangers and KC Royals, is only 11 miles from our location.

It was a very comfortable home and Lucy was quick to respond to any of my questions. We really enjoyed the beautiful master bedroom and the outdoor patio. Kitchen was Devine. Great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent property with all you need to enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

The patio with the dining area, pool and hot tub were excellent and was the place we spent all our time when not enjoying the area. We actually only spent two days eating our supper inside it was that nice. The home was wonderful and comfortable inside and the owner, Lucy was always available if we needed anything or had a question. The Casita in the back was also a treat and fully stocked which provided our visitors with a nice place to stay and enjoy their space. If I had to say anything negative is that the pool is not heated but it was so hot we did use it although sparingly and nobody down here seems to use the solar blankets for the pools. Thanks Lucy for a thoroughly enjoyable stay!

Cindy M.

Our stay had a few bumps but Lucy was great at getting things worked out. I will really miss having fresh orange and grapefruit juice every morning. We had our family join us for Christmas and my grandkids loved going out and picking the fruit. Nothing like the smell of fresh fruit. The home is warm and inviting. The sunsets are amazing. It is very easy to get around the area. Wonderful family memories made. We rented the house for a month.

Thank you, .

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at this beautiful, well appointed vacation home! From the gorgeous antiques to nice comfortable furniture, this is by far one of the best homes we've ever stayed in. We occupied both the house and casita for our family and everyone was happy with their accommodations. This house is extremely clean! The beds are very nice and comfortable so with the quiet atmosphere and clean air you get the best rest ever. The kitchen is extremely nice with stainless appliances and an island. The pictures (although good) do not do this house justice. There is everything you could ask for: plenty of glassware, plates, bowls, utensils and cookware. Lucy and David were so kind and pleasant to work with and their home reflects this. You immediately feel at home when you enter the house. The yards are beautiful with plenty of room to walk around and for kids to run around without having to worry they will ruin something. We didn't use the pool but the lighting was gorgeous to enjoy. The backyard has a nice swing and furniture grouping to visit or just enjoy being outside. Would highly recommend the Safeway home delivery service - we ordered our entire food supply online before we left San Antonio and it was delivered the day after we arrived - what a great service and we didn't have to spend time grocery shopping! We found some cute restaurants and made this vacation truly relaxing with no stress!!! We would highly recommend this home for your next vacation! Thank you so much Lucy and David! We appreciate you allowing us to use your home for the Thanksgiving Week! The experience will bring us many happy memories in the future!

Casita Michaela is situated on a 2 acre gated and secure property, with plenty of room to relax and rest in privacy. We have 3 covered horse stables with a one acre grass pasture should you require equine privileges. The entrance to the beautiful White Tank Mountains is just a short distance away. There you will find various hiking trails, covered picnic areas and beautiful views of the entire valley. The Waterfall Trail is the most popular for hiking and is wheelchair accessible. An interesting feature of the White Tank Mountain Park is the ancient Native American petroglyphs. There is also a horse staging area within the park. Also, a beautiful new state of the art Public Library with amazing views of the mountains is a Park facility. The Library was built ecofriendly. Be sure to visit the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, just 2.8 miles away. There you can dine in a great restaurant or enjoy the many activities offered for all ages. 1 mi away is the Out West General Store, an old fashioned store with an ice cream counter, pizza and sandwiches. It is well stocked for most of your needs and across the street from it is the Waddell Post Office. For sports enthusiasts we are conveniently located near the Spring Training Stadiums for Cactus League Baseball, as well as University of Phoenix Stadium, (Super Bowl 2015), home of the Cardinals, the Glendale Arena home of the Phoenix Coyotes, and in downtown Phoenix, US Airways Center, home of the Phoenix Suns, 15 miles to NASCAR Phoenix International Raceway (PIR). Also, there are concerts at most of these and other nearby venues. An additional benefit of our location is that we are convenient to most any area of the Valley of the Sun. Scottsdale is 40 minutes away. Cancer Treatment Centers of America is 15 min away. The Grand Canyon is approximately a six hour drive, Sedona is a 2 hour drive, Tucson is 2 hours, Flagstaff is 2 hours, Los Angeles is 5 hours, San Diego is 5 short hours away. 6 miles from Luke Air Force Base. After any outing it is a pleasure to come home to the peace and quiet of Casita Michaela in the friendly community of Waddell. Many golf courses to choose from.
