Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from renting this house for a week (April 11-18th) and are happy to give it an excellent review. The house was very clean with everything in working order. It was perfect for my family as we have 3 teenagers (17, 15, 13) and the layout allowed everyone to have plenty of space to spread out and yet plenty of great space that allowed us all to just hangout together. The kids loved the movie theatre room, the pool and hot tub layout. My wife enjoyed the numerous balconies which some had shade and some had sun depending on what you wanted. Lovely views overlooking the golf course at Lookout Mountain, yet the fairway/green was far enough away you could not hear the players. The kitchen was amazing and had all the equipment needed to enjoy meals in each day and night. The grill was great and convenient (had a gas line into it). I enjoyed the office which was just off the master bedroom as it allowed me to get in some work hours and was out of the way of the rest of the kids and household traffic. All the bedrooms very nice with comfortable mattresses and sheets/pillows mattresses. The bedrooms had nice individual bathrooms. The house had wifi and plasma TVs in many of the rooms. The washer/dryer was top of the line. The owners/property manager made everything very easy and convenient (garage door openers, access codes to the security gates, and pool instructions). I loved that the house had high ceilings in all the rooms as Im very tall at 6'8" and we all loved how the house was furnished in very neutral colors and tasteful furnishings (not lots of personal design elements). We loved this house! Bruce and Cyndy G. and Kids, Charlotte, North Carolina

This was our third time to stay at this gorgeous home at Lookout Mountain! It is impeccable in every sense. Carol and Francine are detail riented and their response time is amazing. The house is well stocked, welcoming, and ideal for families or multiple couples. The central location is convenient to all the activities Phoenix area boasts. The pool and hot tub are clean and delightful. Love this house!

This is the 2nd year in a row that our group stayed at Francine's beautiful home. We returned because the house exceeded our expectations and all the amenities (pool, hot tub, outdoor space, proximity to stores/ballparks) made it so enjoyable for all of us. Carol, the property contact person, was easy to work with and very helpful. We highly recommend this home to any large group/family! Thank you for another memorable vacation, Francine!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed in this beautiful home for a full week. The house is large and there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out without feeling crowded. The location is very central to all areas of Phoenix, including a very easy drive to the airport. The neighborhood is gated and quiet. The patios have a beautiful view of the golf course and mountains and the pool gets full sun all day long. There are three bedrooms upstairs, each with their own en suite bathroom. The two bedrooms downstairs share a bathroom. Great for couples. Lots of privacy. The kitchen is well equipped with cookware, utensils, dishes and spices. There is an office with a printer if needed and the downstairs media room is great for watching movies. Carolina's restaurant nearby is a local favorite and has excellent Mexican food. The owner was friendly and responded promptly before and during our stay. She also left a generous welcome basket full of snacks that we enjoyed throughout the week. Our group comes to Phoenix every October and this is our favorite VRBO by far. We will definitely stay again next year!

Beautiful, spacious upscale home set in lovely desert setting.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. We needed a home where each bedroom had a private bathroom and this home delivered that ( three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, downstairs bedrooms with bathroom between) . The patios offered beautiful views of the desert landscape, golf course and surrounding mountains. The kitchen was well appointed and such a lovely space, with big windows to look onto the desert landscape/golf course. We especially enjoyed observing the local wildlife. The media room made us feel like we were in a theater. Centrally located. Carol, who manages property, and Francine, the owner, are both kind, welcoming and helpful.

Well appointed laundry room and pantry were a huge bonus

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding property, 7 of us rented the house for guys golf vacation and could not be more pleased. The house was spotless when we arrived and much appreciated the welcome basket of snacks and fruit. Francine was excellent to deal with, communication outstanding, emails responded to within an hour. We had a garage door spring that failed, it was fixed within hours and cannot say more about the owner's attentiveness. We had golf courses scheduled around north Phoenix and Scottsdale and in fact cancelled a few later in the week to play Lookout Mountain a couple more times, it was in great condition, challenging and we avoided the drive. The house is close to many amenities, we found a great local BBQ spot down the road, check out the Hammered Hog, say hello to Roxanne and tell her the Canadian's sent you.
