Amazing house with responsive owners
Our group of 10 have done spring training trips for 4 consecutive years, and the last two years we have stayed at this house. It comfortably accommodates all of us and has a fantastic backyard with a pool/spa and basketball court. It's extremely user-friendly and the owners are responsive and fantastic.
Owners quickly respond to any needs.
Cool place in Mesa
Eleven adults stayed at this house for 4 nights in June of this year. Even though the inside of the house is gorgeous, well equipped, and comfortable, we spent almost all of our time by the pool. Making the arrangements to stay there was easy and the owners were quick to respond to our questions. WE'd come back here in a heart beat. Many thanks! BW
Excellent find for a big group
Good location, great pool and back yard, house stocked with all you need. Great place for a big group.
Good potential, but disappointing
This was our 9th year renting a home for a week in Arizona and I'm sorry to say that, for the price, this one was disappointing. No home is perfect and some minor issues are to be expected no matter where you stay, but we had several large issues and a number of minor ones that detracted from our stay.
The major issues were the pool and spa, the ovens, and the clothes dryer. Despite pool heat being included in the rate, the pool and spa were cold (and not very clean) when we arrived. I spent 3 hours off and on texting with the owner to resolve the problem and wasn't able to get the heater running. The owner contacted the pool service to come the next morning to fix it. The pool guy arrived as promised. He cleaned the pool and fixed the heater, but the pool had to remain in service mode until the next day. It was a big disappointment that the pool and spa were unusable our first two nights there.
Next neither of the ovens worked. We carefully followed the directions provided for starting them numerous times, but could not get them to work. The owner sent out a repair tech, but the part needed to fix the ovens had to be ordered and would not arrive during our stay. We’d planned to cook most of our meals at the house, and had already purchased our groceries, so the lack of a working oven was a major inconvenience.
The third big issue was the clothes dryer. Initially, the dryer was not working very well (loads took more than one cycle to dry), but eventually it quit working entirely. We ended up hanging our laundry out on the fence to dry. We typically pack light knowing that we can wash clothes during our stay. This was another big inconvenience.
There were also some smaller issues. These alone might not be worth mentioning, but I want to list them for the benefit of future guests, and to give the owner a chance to correct them if they do not already know about them. The light over the dining room table didn't work right. One evening we tried every switch around it and could not get it to turn on. The next morning it was working. The refrigerator wasn't clean when we arrived, and there were very old food items left in the cupboards. One large cupboard door was broken so badly it would fall off when opened. The garage door into the house had to remain propped open to prevent an alarm from sounding constantly.
Given the issues we had and the small refund the owner gave us to compensate for those issues, we would not choose this property again.
We thank you for your review. We take pride in addressing all concerns of our guests and unfortunately some things happen or break down during stays that are beyond our control. All of the issues were addressed. Two new ovens were purchased as was a new washer and dryer. The pool heat issue was repaired during the stay and again we apologize for the inconvenience. This is why we reimbursed the heated pool cost to you. I know your request was for more then 50% refund so i can appreciate that you were not happy. I hope that you still managed to enjoy some aspects of your family vacation. Cheers, Milka
This house was absolutely perfect! Plenty of room, the yard is fantastic!
We had 2 families staying at this property with children ages 3-15. Everyone had a blast! We loved how the pool is fenced in to keep
Little ones safe and the older kids had so much fun with the sport court. Beds were plentiful and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!
Thank you Jandi . We are happy to hear you guys enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you back again. Cheers, Milka
