Why Darlene Thorne chose Sycamore Farms

We chose Surprise, as it is a new and up coming area with lots of growth. The home is located to ball parks, golf courses, shopping and only 25 minutes from the airport. It is a very safe and quiet neighbourhood! We hope to semi-retire here one day and have decorated the home with much love. The property can sustain a maximum of 8 people, however it is designed for 6. The home is for light entertaining for the guests on the contract " only. "The pool and spa are beautiful but are not comercial and only meant for private family use. This home will not lend itself to parties and large amounts of extra guests. Please do not enquire if you do not fall within these guidelines .

What makes this bungalow unique

Spacious family home with a backyard that can't be beat. The minute you walk through the front door you will feel like your in your own private resort. The open concept with high ceilings and total view of your own private spa/pool area makes for a wonderful vacation. While you are prepping meals you can keep a watchful eye on your children. You can also feel a little more at ease with 3 different forms of security measures to prevent little ones from accessing the patio/pool. The extra bedrooms are located down a separate hallway making evening entertaining enjoyable while younger guests can sleep in piece. Child monitor available upon request. This home is meant for family oriented vacations and respectful guests listed on the contract only. Prices are quoted for dbl occupancy all persons over will be charged an extra nightly fee., negotiable depending on length of stay.

Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

I am really happy to give this review. 5 stars all the way. Our reason for visiting this area was to participate in a USTA Nationals Tennis tournament in Surprise, AZ. My wife and I needed a unit close by. This property was a convenient 12 minutes away from the large Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex where our tennis team had to play. The unit was tucked away in a quiet subdivision, giving the feeling of a private retreat. Grocery store and eating establishments were nice and close.

Unit was well decorated in a Cowboy/Desert motive, appropriate for the Arizona region (happened to catch two western movies on TV during our stay; the design of the unit added to our movie watching experience; we're big John Wayne fans). Very nice floor plan with lots of amenities, very spacious (large master bedroom/bathroom, large open kitchen with everything imaginable needed for stay at home dining, large great room with oversized couches for reading a book and watching TV). Very, very clean.

The gem of this property was the backyard. Modern, well sized swimming pool. I'm a swimmer and even though it wasn't 25 yards/meters, I found ways to get two/three glide strokes in with room to perform flip turns. Large steps allowed for easy entry into the pool. Far end (deep end) of the pool had a submerged sitting area. Palm tree near the edge of the pool. Nicely maintained rock garden to the side of the pool. If the pool wasn't enough, this place had a Jacuzzi and a gas-powered fire pit (both really nice to have during the evening hours when the temperatures dropped into maybe the 60s).

Owner made sure our stay was a great experience. Quick response to general questions I had at the start of our stay. I definitely recommend this place, especially if you are coming to participate in a USTA National's Tennis Tournament at the nearby Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex in Surprise, AZ.

Desert Paradise

  • 5 of 5

this was my first trip to Arizona and the first time renting a private vacation home and I have to say that I was totally impressed. The home decor and decorating was very well thought out and luxurious. The home was very clean and had everything in it that you would need. The kitchen is massive with plenty of seating and the open concept made it very easy to entertain. The patio, BBQ and pool area is a true paradise. This was by far one of the best holidays we have had and really enjoyed spending our time just hanging out at the home and enjoying all that it had to offer. We will for sure be back again in the near future.

Oasis in the desert

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Arizona and I can tell you it won't be our last! Surprise is a fantastic place, not too busy and yet close to everything.

The home is luxurious and beautiful and tastefully decorated. The homeowner Darlene is thoughtful, caring, and thorough. All of our needs and wants were meticulously and graciously cared for. The kitchen is huge and with grocery store so close it made cooking a delight. The beds are cozy and comfortable and everything was so spotless and clean it was amazing!

But the highlight was the oasis of a back yard that includes an outstanding swimming pool, a beautiful hot tub that was so perfect in the evening, and a cool sitting area that has a gas fireplace to sip wine around and laugh! Loved the little gecko that kept us company in the sun and the privacy afforded by the green belt at the back of the property. We walked everyday in this gorgeous meticulously maintained neighbourhood and felt very safe and at ease. The neighbors are very thoughtful and helpful and really helped make our stay special and fun.

The only bad thing about this place was leaving it and we are already planning our return trip!!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, it really was a special and fun holiday!

I will gladly recommend your property to all my friends.
