Impressive property - not impressive management

  • 3 of 5

We were very much looking forward to our stay at Cactus Wren. While the property itself lived up to expectations, the service provided by the management company did not. Specifically, the fire pits which are featured so prominently in the pictures, ran out of gas on the second night of our five night stay. Calls to provided number went unreturned (yes the contract says any non-emergencies are only dealt with after you leave). We payed for a property with functioning amenities that did not. We would have thought that would be part of their preparations for every stay to ensure the tanks are full, apparently this isn't the case. We sent them an e-mail after our stay describing this and it also has gone unheeded. Customer service is key and they don't provide it. There are a myriad of options available in the PHX/Scottsdale area and customer service is a key to standing out. As a closer, when we stripped the bed, we found the fitted sheet was so worn that it was full of holes at the bottom. Details are important !

Owner's Response: Sarah, Our apologies for the fire pits, this was an issue that has since been addressed with the owner and we now immediately refill them prior to check-in. While the fire pits certainly were not an emergency, I understand your frustration, and apologize. We have since rectified the problem. Since your stay we have started a mandatory linen service for all of our properties so you will never experience this again. On behalf of our entire company, I truly hope you will give us another chance. Best, Book My Vacay

Great VRBO

  • 4 of 5

This was very quiet and comfortable. Everything was perfect except getting locked out (there were no keys and the garage door opener didn't work, we locked the door handle and the deadbolt prior to walking out the door) and the shower head fell off in the master bedroom the first shower. The internet and all televisions worked great.

Great house in a great location....

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Phoenix Summit Challenge with 5 family members. Had not been in Phoenix for 15 years so we wanted a nice place place that would be easy to get around. The house was very nice. Located in a super convenient location close to stores, restaurants and freeway exits (and close by a new In and Out burger place that as east coasters we had heard much about but had never been to one was as good as they say it is). The place was very clean and fully stocked with all kinds of added everyday conveniences along with a lot of complimentary coffee & tea selections. The backyard with heated pool was awesome. We did not have time to use the pizza oven as it rained the day we planned to use it but it looked like it would have been fun to make pizzas. And the pool table was used a a lot. The master bed was especially comfortable. All in all the place is a great value and the Bookmyvacay staff were especially helpful throughout the entire process...we could not find the light switch to the pool and the bookmyvacay staff easily helped us find it...they even retrieved a Fitbit that my son left charging in the house the morning we left for the airport. We highly recommend both Cactus Wren and Bookmyvacay....both are A+.

Scottsdale Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we wanted in a vacation rental. It has a great backyard for our kids to swim and enjoy, fun amenities, a beautiful fully stocked kitchen for cooking meals, and more! The home was in close proximity to Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland which was reallllly nice. We have recommended this property to all of our friends in Canada and cant wait to return.

Beautiful Home! Happy Guests

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our family vacation in March. We were very happy with our stay. It was clear from the very beginning that this home was professionally managed. The booking process was simple, and our agent was very knowledgable and had personally been to the property. We arrived to a clean crisp property that was well stocked and beautifully decorated. The property was minutes to grocery stores and shopping, which was very convenient! We had a pizza baking night, it was a blast! I would HIGHLY recommend this property and would rent it again with no hesitation. Thanks to Book My Vacay for providing top notch service.
