Why Darlene Thorne chose Surprise

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 4 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 availabe upon request. This home is meant for family oriented vacations and respectful guests listed on the contract only.

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We just spent spring break with our family of four and enjoyed every minute of our ten day stay! The home was very clean and comfortable, and extremely spacious, with a huge kitchen! We had all the amenities that we were looking for ....heated pool, hot tub fire pit and especially enjoyed having WiFi for our teenaged children, never a dull day! Quiet, safe neighbourhood with nice walking paths, felt very comfortable. We all had the best sleeps, beds were extremely comfortable and a fan in every room, so no need for air conditioning to be running all night. Definitely would recommend this home and looking forward to coming back,! As this was our first VRBO experience, we were fortunate that we booked this home as Darlene made our whole booking experience easy and seamless! She was in constant communication and always responded quickly with any questions we had! Lovely, welcoming home...definitely recommend for families with teenagers!

The Perfect Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an incredible time here. This was our first time visiting Arizona as well as renting a house and it was flawless! The owners were so easy to deal with, it made booking our vacation a fast and stress free experience. We found it an amazing location as it is far enough away from everything for relaxation but still close enough for activities. The quiet area that it is located in allowed us to go for long walks with our toddler and feel completely safe.

The home itself is impeccable, you can clearly see the great pride the owners take in it. It is so clean and well taken care of, the décor is absolutely amazing and all of the furniture is so comfortable, creating a cozy home atmosphere. It is well equipped, even with some items needed for a toddler! The kitchen is massive, it has all the amenities needed and then some! We spent most our vacation playing around the pristine pool and patio with our little one, in the evenings we soaked in the hot tub and sat around the fire pit. I can’t explain how stress free and relaxing it was. As there was only the three of us, we had tons of space when we spent time inside watching movies, playing board games and cooking. We will definitely be bringing some friends next time! We loved how it was just a quick drive to the store if we had forgotten something but when you sat around the fire at night it seemed like we were so far away from everything. The owners have a book put together of local attractions and a list of all the requirements for the care of the home, making things easy and straight forward! When we did have questions about the house and the surrounding area, the neighbours/caretakers next door were happy to answer and share their suggestions, we really appreciated their help!

We most definitely plan to go back!

Romantic Escape to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were fortunate enough to find this piece of paradise when we travelled briefly through Arizona. The home was so welcoming and warm, the decor was evident of being done from a very loving and warm family. Walking through the front door all my stress instantly dissolved and I felt like I had found a perfect piece of heaven that had all the comforts of home, and yet all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel. The house itself was spotless, sheets and linens all neatly folded, kitchen bathrooms, pool all very clean. The fridge and pantry had food that was kindly left for us to enjoy. We had access to the pool and hot tub, and with unlimited access to the kitchen supplies we spent the weekend blending margaritas and sunbathing by the pool. We also enjoyed numerous walks through the friendly neighbourhood and were fortunate enough to meet the lovely caretaker and manager. This house is more than just a roof over your head, you truly feel as if you have been welcomed into the beautiful home of a very loving and kind family. Yes, there were a list of recommendations to the house, but it is completely understandable as it is the house of someone else and they were kind enough to let us stay. The yard and pool was regularly maintained though out our stay, and the staff was very helpful and kind, it was evident that our comfort was a priority to all the people who work so hard to keep this place running so exceptionally. I was more than impressed with every part of our stay. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of paradise with us. We plan to come back for our honeymoon!!!

Beautiful home but the "caretaker" neighbor spoiled our trip

  • 2 of 5

The house is very beautiful just as represented in the photos. We were on a family trip with 6 adults visiting family that live in the Surprise area. The pool, the firepit and the hot tub were the perfect trifecta. The inside of the house was well equipped. I was so looking forward to enjoying that house with my family!

But, I must say that the very hands- on next door neighbor that Darlene entrusts to care for the property was horrible and made us very uncomfortable! Within our first hour there she came over and had a very aggressive demeanor giving us an endless list of rules and instructions. "You must do this, you better do that, and never ever do this...." For example when she was explaining the need for a safety lock on the sliding door she exclaimed "You know, people die here!" It was overwhelming. She was a little scary. I do understand Darlene is very particular about this house as it is gorgeous and they take excellent care of it, but she does herself no favor with this caretaker. I shrugged it off and my husband and I politely accepted all her rules and admonitions. However, that night as my son and his wife were enjoying the beautiful back patio at about 11 PM someone from the house next door (the caretaker's house) peered over the very tall fence and just watched them for a few moments. Creepy! When my son told me this the next day I didn't know what to make of it. The next day however, we had another problem when the caretaker peered over the fence again (she had to climb on a step stool to do so as the fence had to be about 7 feet tall. My son in law was in the pool and she began to school him on how the pool hose needed to be placed in the pool. Who does that? Who climbs on a stool and purposely peeks over someone's privacy fence for any reason? She should have come to the front door like any civilized person would do if she had concerns. From that point on we felt we were being spied on by this neighbor. It was very upsetting to us as we are good people who did not need to be made to feel like interlopers. I was reduced to tears and had to call the owners about the matter,

I'm sorry to leave a bad review. The house itself was impeccable but to invade my family's privacy is unforgivable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your recent stay at our property. I am pleased to read that you found the property is well represented in our ads and that the comforts and amenities met all of your expectations. I feel a little unsettled with regard to your comments regarding our caretaker who happens to be the neighbor. It is unfortunate that her diligence caused you some angst while on the property; however, the caretaker’s responsibility is to ensure the safety of the home and the people on the property at all times. As you are aware, all rules and stipulations regarding use of the property is explained prior to completion of the rental agreement. While I stand by my caretaker’s actions, I do regret that you found this aspect of your vacation as an invasion of your privacy. We have taken your comments into consideration and will be making the necessary changes to the rental agreement so that renters and their guests are very clear on accepted behaviors and activities while on the property. Again, thank you for taking the time to write your review.

Wonderful Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house layout was awesome for a family vacation, or a friend's getaway! Super comfy beds with plenty of towels, soaps, etc.. House is completely updated/stocked with everything you could need to stay for a week or longer. Towels, extra pillows, blankets, beach towels, floats for the pool, spices, coffee/Keurig, Iced Capp maker, all cupboards full of essentials. The pool area was amazing, with great sun and shade.Just open the doors and jump in! Cooking is a delight in the amazing kitchen and the grill was convenient for those evening BBQ's. Pool was heated to 84, so great for daytime or evening dips. ( Even floaties were by the pool for use!) We would highly recommend to all who are looking for an amazing home to vacation in. Great location to all shopping and restaurants. We love Surprise and all it and this amazing home has to offer. Darlene is an amazing host - readily available to make sure your vacation time is the best it can possibly be!

I would highly recommend this property. It is great for any group of people; singles, couples, families. One of my friends is already talking with her family to book this Arizona retreat. As I've said, Darlene and family were very helpful and accommodating, I really enjoyed dealing with her as it felt like I could ask her anything and she was very quick to respond throughout the whole stay. Anyone would enjoy this great Arizona escape!
