About Dennis and Misty Gilmore

My wife and I are transplants from California. We moved here in 2001 and bought our first house here. A couple years later, we began looking for a piece of property that was large enough to build our dream home. In 2004, we found and purchased the property and began construction soon after. We completed construction in early 2005 and moved in.

Dennis and Misty Gilmore purchased this house in 2004

Why Dennis and Misty Gilmore chose Peoria

We purchased the property in 2004 and completed construction on the home in March 2005. We purchased property in the area because of it's size and the flexibility it gave us to build the house we've always wanted.

Like most people, we have made changes as time went on, I'm sure we will make additional improvements as time goes on, but it's pretty much got everything we ever wanted.

What makes this house unique

Because the property is over an acre, it gives us the privacy we like to just relax and enjoy the privacy it provides. We have the pool and other amenities we've added since the house was built, such as the hot tub and built in barbecue on the back deck. We have a very open floor plan which provides plenty of room to sit, talk and relax.

Best VRBO we have ever rented!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week at this property with with my kids and grandkids. We had a wonderful time and spent most of our time just hanging out there by the pool, Misty and Dennis even supplied pool toys for the kids!! The kitchen was amazing so we were all able to cook and eat most of our meals there. The casida is an added bonus.....a beautiful rental all by itself and provided grandma with some privacy and a good nights sleep. We have rented homes several times and this is by far the best we have ever rented.

Best family vacation so far!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my family of 8 adults to attend spring training, the Nascar race, and play some golf. It is perfectly located for all of that. We took advantage of Thunderbird Park Trailheads (walking distance) each morning for a hike with views, followed by a little pool time, then off to a game or a race each day. Then back to the pool for an afternoon swim and cocktails. We enjoyed cooking dinner on the patio and eating outside each evening. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, bake or BBQ. Misty has the home well supplied with any spice you need as well as paper plates, napkins and zip locks. Each of my grown children and their husbands had their own bedroom with private bath as well as my parents in the casita. Could not of enjoyed the home, pool and patio, and location more! Misty is near by if you need anything ( you wont) and is super helpful.

Beautiful home and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need and more. Spacious enough for everyone to have their own space when needed. The pool was beautiful and we used the outdoor grill every night. The cookies waiting for us upon our arrival were delicious. Thank you Misty for the hospitality!!!

Better Than Imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 adults and 2 young children in our group. From the moment we first contacted Dennis and Misty, to our first steps into their beautiful house, we were more then satisfied. The house is very well stocked with everything you need. Nice welcome touch was the fresh baked cookies. Lots of space for everyone!! The smaller table worked great for the kids table. We were thrilled to be able to enjoy the beautiful backyard patio and BBQ. The pool and hot tub were fantastic.was nice for family members that travelled from different parts of Canada and even one from Nicaragua. We felt like we had our own private resort. Beautiful, quiet area. Best VRBO experience we have had thanks to Dennis & Misty and their hospitality. We were visiting the Phoenix area to follow our son around Arizona. His College Team from New York State was playing numerous colleges around Phoenix and Arizona. Don't want to leave this paradise and go back to Canada to the cold damp weather. Thank you Dennis & Misty.

Great Two Family Vacation with Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this house in AZ! It was exactly what our families wanted - there were two couples and three young kids and there was more than enough space. The parents loved the pool, covered patio and huge great room while the kids had tons of toys (bikes, a house, etc.) to play with - it really was relaxing, especially considering when traveling with little ones sometimes isn't. Highly recommended and we hope to be back soon.
