Winter 2015

We stayed at this home for 3.5 months this past winter. The owners are very nice, the home was clean and very spacious. The mountain views awesome and community residents were friendly. I have small lap dog and paid the pet deposit. My only regret is not using the black light to check for urine spots on the bedroom carpets "before" we moved in. About 3 weeks into our stay we used the black light and found spots in all 3 rooms. I knew my dog had not done the pee as she was only in my bedroom and I hadn't had wet carpets in there or I would have noticed "wet" floor?? The landlords kept 1/2 of my deposit claiming there was urine spots in all the rooms. Yes there was... "old" ....pee spots... but not from my pet. I am not upset about the money as much as I am they accused her of doing the spots. The urine was there from previous renters. So if you rent this property with an animal, be sure to go over the floors with the Landlord before you move in. I have rented other properties in Az and always had my full pet deposit returned. I think the Landlords just have a sneaky way of getting their carpets cleaned at my expense. Other than that do not be afraid to rent this home, it was a fun great stay, we enjoyed our winter!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this person felt that had to leave a negative review about the pet deposit. We returned all but $89 of the $200 pet deposit, which was the cost of cleaning the carpet. A receipt for the carpet cleaning was included when the full $500 security deposit and $111 for the pet deposit was refunded.

My wife & I had the oppertunity to stay at this beautiful 3 bedroom home. Is was perfect. It was very clean, quiet,modern, great location. Everything we wanted in a rental was there.

The owners were very special and we now have a friendship going as well. The view of the mountain range, the community center with all the activities, pool, pickleball, shuffel board, etc... was just great. This will be our Arizonia Jewel. Enjoy all. The Rays from Wisconsin.
