Why Lucy or David Cook chose Waddell
We loved this place the first time we saw it. Perfect place to raise our daughter. We have loved the convenience to the city amenities and then coming home to the peace and quiet of the country.

Adorable lil cottage
Perfectly decorated and stocked with lots of thoughtful items. Kitchen with helpful appliances, and horses and chickens out back! We stayed here for over a week for our adoption process, and it was the perfect place to do so.
We enjoyed having you and your precious little one.
Lucy and David cook were very cordial and respectful of the space for me as a renter.
My experience at this property was very good, I always felt safe and respected as a renter. Everything in the casita and outside area was high end with much regard with the renter in mind. The horses on the property were wonderful to look at and very therapeutic for me. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience at this property.
Thank you Becky, it was such a pleasure to have you and Poppy stay with us, we hope you come back soon!
Wonderful, unique, rural like setting
Lucy & David have an amazing vacation rental. What I loved, well to start off the sun shining in each morning through the patio doors, the chickens clucking, morning doves cooing, a couple of donkeys braying a few houses down, coyotes calling in the moonlight and if you listen closely you'll hear the magical call of the illusive owl.
If you are a walker or a hiker this is a gem of a location. The neighborhood itself is a great stroll. For the hiker and lover of the outdoors for peace and tranquility, White Tanks Regional Park is very close by and Skyline Regional Park is just a tad farther.
Lucy's place is impeccable. Her humble space she has set up for travelers is inviting, cozy and charming. The space if very clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you need for meals or a wonderful evening outside on the patio is at your fingertips. If there is something special you need, she is happy to accommodate. Oh, and fresh eggs from the chickens that YOU get to snatch up for a tasty breakfast!!! I will definitely be back to this gem.
Joni, you are a treasure! Thank you so much for staying with us. It was such a nice treat to be able to join you on some of those hikes. The desert scenery never gets old. We are looking forward to your return.
We absolutely loved our stay at the casita! Lucy and David were great host, always quick to respond with any questions we had and informed us of several places to visit. Very quiet neighborhood and an all around great place to relax. We fell in love with the horses, such sweethearts! Will for sure stay here again, highly recommend!
Thank you very much. We loved having your family stay with us! Please come back anytime, you are always welcome here.
A great place to stay!
I spent four nights in this quiet neighborhood with my two little boys. The Casita was very neat and clean and had everything we needed for our vacation. We had a great time hiking nearby, and enjoyed the drive into Phoenix for many other activities. I definitely recommend this property!
Thank you so much for staying with us. You and your boys were perfect guests! Please come back anytime.
Lucy and Dave were fantastic.. great setting and wonderful hosts .
