About John Lapsansky

My wife and I are semi retired, and live in Seattle. After serving in the fire department for over 30 years, we pursued our dream of a home that allows us to ride our Harley year round. We now would like to share this home with people like us who need to shorten their winter. Estrella Mt Ranch truly is a retreat you will want to return to again and again! It just doesn't get any better than this!

John Lapsansky purchased this house in 2013

The house is perfect. Clean, well maintained and the kitchen is stocked with

everything one needs to cook any meal. The outdoor patio and kitchen is

gorgeous and easy to use. This is the second year I have rented this property.

Very lovely and private vacation home. Almost never had to leave, so comfortable and everything at your fingertips. The pool is exquisite and always perfect temp for an early morning, afternoon or evening swim. Gourmet kitchen with everythong you could possibly need. Great amenities in neighborhood, played bridge at the club weekly and used the local hiking trails..would recommend this home highly....

Relaxing Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful did not do it justice! It was warm & inviting, & had every amenity we needed!!! The hummingbirds & landscaping was wonderful to enjoy. We have been renting vacation homes for years, but this had the best stocked kitchen, towels, & other extras!!! The owners were also a pleasure to rent with, kept us up to date with events, & area attractions.

Our only negative....too short & wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfection at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property, area, pool, owners on and on.... We had a wonderful stay. The property was pristine and we loved the area. Don't miss the bagle oasis in the Safeway shopping center. Backyard was private and very well maintained. Just can't say enough good things about this Vacation Rental. Trying to make and excuse to come back to PHX just to stay at this Estrella property. Let me also say I had to call John twice, and he was always available (sorry John, I didn't read the email as well as I should have) If it's available RENT IT...

We stayed here for some spring training games and some sight seeing. The house is just as described, though the picture do not do it justice. The kitchen is equipped with everything and anything you could need. The beds are very comfortable and the master bedroom is HUGE! The owner is very helpful with any questions you may have (including the location of the TV remote). This property is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED an d qwe would definitely stay here again.

Paradise in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a week vacation at this property and everything about it was fantastic. The owner was incredibly helpful and answered all our questions prior to our arrival. The pictures don't do this property justice, it's even more beautiful in person, it was clean and organized and came equipped with everything we needed and more. We loved the pool and backyard and the lemon tree was an added bonus! The neighbourhood was lovely, we went for walks and bike rides daily around the lake and to starbucks/safeway. I would highly recommend this property, we are hoping to return for another stay in the future!
