About Kevin and Janet Manley

My grandparents fell in love with Arizona about 40 years ago and started to winter here. They were snowbirds from the midwest. My parents soon followed after they retired. And now we are on to a third generation. We are so excited to share our home with others and hope that you would love to make lasting memories here. Since we stay at our home any chance we can we want all the comforts of home and you will find it to be complete with all the amenities of home.

Kevin and Janet Manley purchased this house in 2013

Why Kevin and Janet Manley chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

We wanted a safe well kept nice neighborhood. We spent my years finding the perfect property and location. The home is very private and a large backyard. From both front and back of the home are mountain views. This home was a builders model. And is professionally decorated.

What makes this house unique

The large outdoor living space is like none other. The spa is over sized 9 x 9. Because you have the option to heat the pool and spa it is usable all year round. The pool table is an extra that most homes don't have. Pecos is a bicyclers haven.

Amazing Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Manley's for making your beautiful home available! We had an amazing time over Thanksgiving week! Your home was absolutely perfect for our family to all get together and enjoy the holiday! There was more then enough room for all of us, and the yard felt like a private resort! Between the yard and indoor activities like the pool table and games, we never heard "I'm bored" once :)

The owners are extremely easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. We'd recommend this home to anyone, and hope to rent it again in the future!

We stayed here June 30th to July 9th. HOT HOT HOT! But, that is what the beautiful pool is for. This home is PERFECT! Whether for 2 people like us, or 10 people, the home is adequately furnished with everything you need. Janet made the process so easy and seamless. Very prompt with communicating with any questions I had. The location is perfect. So secure, private and peaceful. I highly recommend this property to anyone searching for a home to stay for your Arizona vacation. Looking forward to staying at your home again in the future Janet. Thank you again for the opportunity for us to enjoy your beautiful home!

Wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the use of this lovely home to celebrate my Son's home coming from Military posting. We were able to comfortably accomodate our adult children and grand children for our gathering. The home was clean and comfortable. We cooked most of our meals and enjoyed the pool and patio the entire time we stayed. We ran through out the neighbourhoods and found some trails along the way to explore. There are amenities within 10 minutes drive. The Owners were very helpful. We ventured out to a ball game which took 30 minutes drive in steady traffic. The outlet malls are located about 10 minutes away and helped us drain our wallets! The neighbours were friendly. The area was very clean. Janet brought over a lovely cake to thank our son for his service which was so very kind. Enjoy one from the Nothing Bunt Cake, they are so delicious. The BBQ works very well, I would recommend a cooking light however. Thank you Janet and Kevin for sharing your wonderful home with us for our family holiday. Cam, JoAnne & all the kids!

Wonderful Family Memories Made

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently enjoyed a wonderful week in Arizona celebrating my dad's retirement. The house had more than enough room, and was perfect for our three families with three young girls. The backyard provided a beautiful oasis, and our six month old daughter enjoyed her very first swim in the pool! We found a great walking path right outside of the neighborhood which was utilized every morning. The location was a perfectly centered for all of our activities - spring training baseball games, the Phoenix Zoo, and the aquarium. Kevin and Janet were a pleasure to work with, and made the process completely seamless. We would highly recommend this gorgeous home for an unforgettable getaway!

What an oasis for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast staying at this beautiful, centrally located home near Phoenix. Shopping, kids attractions, golfing and everything you could ever need to pick up on a moment's notice are just a short drive away. The weather was beautiful and we truly enjoyed walking through this private community in the mornings. The house was outfitted with all the amenities and after the kids were in bed, my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine and relaxed by the outdoor fireplace. The owners were very gracious giving us the rundown on the house after we arrived and we felt like we were home even though we were away from home. It was the perfect break from our Canadian winter and we can't wait to visit again!
