San Tan Valley Visit
All was good for my wife and I during our early March visit. Home was very comfortable. Great pool and hot tub facility.
Perfect spring break spot for the family!
We had a great time with the family! The nearby pool was where we spent most of our time. It was never crowded! Also, It was great to have miscellaneous kids bikes and helmets that the kids could ride over! NOT having a pool in the backyard was actually a bonus so that we didn't have to worry about the kids safety all week. The park on the way to the pool got lots of use by our two kiddos too! We enjoyed the back patio for reading books and meals many times throughout the week. The Par 3 golf course was a hit too. We were able to take the clubs and balls at the house and since the golf course was nearly empty we could take our time with small kids who aren't very good at golf. We simply ran out of time to do disc golf! We appreciated that Johnson Ranch was away from the hustle and bustle and we truly could relax for the week😊� We will definitely come back for the sunshine next spring break! Oh yeah and it was a nice bonus that we could drive to a spring training game one day!
Walking in was like staying at your own house, nicely decorated, clean and I lovely back yard. We had a few minor issues that the owner responded to very quickly and resolved them.. Convenient to local restaurants and grocery stores. Highly recommend this home for your home away from home.
Perfect spring vacation spot
I used to live in AZ, so when we return, we like to be away from the crowds. This home is perfect for bike rides, desert sunsets, and the area gets more exciting every 6 months when we visit. The short walk to the pool is great. We havent fought for a sunbathing lounger yet and always meet friendly neighbors. More restaurants open each year, but the nearby grocery store helps us have light lunches and relaxing breakfasts outside.
I stayed at this place because I was waiting to move into my new home. After the first day there I noticed that there was a dead bird in the backyard. I put it in the trash can so that my girls weren't scared. After that experience I was a bit turned off but unfortunately I had to stay somewhere. We bought a house and the house we sold closed much sooner than anticipated and we were left scrambling to find a place for a few days. I got the rental with the anticipation that we would close after 8 days. Unfortunately the closing process took longer and we needed a place to stay a few days longer. Of course it would be easiest to stay where I was already so I asked for an extension. The owner was annoyed and asked why. I told her my situation and she told me I would have to get cash right away and that the VRBO was not set up for instant booking. She gave me an extension as long as I got her property manager cash before her cut off time of 6:00. Unfortunately her property manager failed to get back in touch with me so I needed to be out at 11am the next day. I was freaking out since I had my dogs and kids. Finally last minute after paying for another place she said I could stay. I ended up getting my money back from the other place and decided to stay. Also after a couple days her property manage came over as my husband was leaving and she had a key. My husband called me concerned. I immediately emailed Cathy and she told me the property manager wanted to meet us. I told her no one was there and I don't appreciate her coming in without us there. Cathy then told me the property manager needed to get into the backyard and that the property manager left a note. I never got a note or an email. Again they came into the house without us being there. It was a complete invasion of our privacy. Then on the day we checked out Cathy emailed me accusing me of having puppies and that I need to explain myself. She said her neighbors told her. I felt as if I was being spyed on my her neighbors the whole time I was there. The day we left she had her property manager waiting outside and watching us leave. It gave us a very uneasy feeling as we left. I don't recommend staying at her rental. It was not a relaxing environment and full of unnecessary stress.
My house has been a vacation rental for 1 1/2 years. This has been my ONLY unhappy guest. I will be more careful in the future regarding who rents my house.
Beautiful home, close to everything and yet quiet
The house was very nice. It was just liking walking into your own home away from home. The owner was fantastic to work with. She gave us information on the area and places to visit. Very nice experience .
