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 Phoenix

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.

Best ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes for the past 10 years and this is the best we have ever had! We paid extra for the pool heat, and the pool was warm when we arrived! (Usually it takes at least a day to get it to temperature because it is not pre-heated prior to arrival). This is a huge plus when you are traveling with grandkids that cannot wait to get into the pool! The Manley's have thought of everything to make their home our home. This is also the cleanest house we have ever rented and I love that they leave access to the cleaning tools and supplies as I like to keep a clean house while there as well. We had extra family come over for Thanksgiving and there was plenty of room, plenty of seating, and everyone was in awe of the home. I cannot wait to go back next Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for sharing this awesome home! The house is truly at the base of South Mountain but also close enough to highways that make things accessible. Me, my son and daughter ran a 10K Thanksgiving morning in downtown Phoenix and it only took about 20 mins to get there. Chandler Fashion Center is also within 10 mins and has easy access. I did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back! I highly recommend this home!

This is an amazing rental house. It has everything you want to enjoy a vacation. Very spacious to allow for your group to not feel to close. The owners are amazing! Mrs. Manley helped with every question we could come up with.

I would definately rent this vacation home again. I know that if you are reading this recipe the next thing you should do is book your stay as well!

Awesome desert mountain home

  • 5 of 5

This home offered us a peaceful and relaxing getaway with our friends. This rental house is well maintained and beautifully decorated - it truly is a "home" rather than an ordinary rental house. We enjoyed cooking in the indoor and outdoor areas, eating outdoors, and relaxing in the hot tub. There is plenty of room to enjoy the company of a group, yet the home offers space for privacy as well. We enjoyed golfing and restaurants in the area, both of which are nearby. The Manley's are wonderful with communication (e-mail and/or phone calls) and are readily available to answer any questions you may have. We would give a wholehearted recommendation to enjoy a stay in this home!! We hope to return again!

Spacious yet Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This home offered all of what we were looking for in a vacation spot - a heated pool and spa, separate bedrooms and a number of bathrooms plus a warm, efficient kitchen and barbeque area. This spacious home (4,000 square feet) gives plenty of room for a large group yet can still offer privacy to anyone needing a little alone time.

We were visiting in March with the temperatures in the low 70's yet when the sun shone, it was a glorious day poolside! We also enjoyed bird watching and the entertaining ground squirrels right from the backyard.

Many thanks to the owners for sharing their home.

Wonderfully enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 middle-aged adult couples staying at the Manley's beautiful home. The hot tub, pool & view of the mountains was just what we needed to get out from the cold. The home is wonderfully maintained and providing plenty of access to outdoor activities. It was large enough that all six of us had 'our space' when needed.

I agree with the other positive reviews that I've read here. We would go back in a heart beat...longer next time!!!
