About John Barnett

We have been together for almost 35 years and have two wonderful children. Love the sunshine and all the great activities that Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Peoria, Tempe, Mesa and Surprise have to offer from NASCAR, the NFL and MLB games to the PGA tour with the Waste Management Open. We are close to Surprise Stadium and a short drive from the University of Phoenix Stadium and the Dodgers and Indians at Camelback-Ranch in Glendale. There is the Fiesta Bowl and it hosts next year's BCS college championship!

John Barnett purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear John & Deb,

Our family stayed at your Surprise, AZ home last week.  I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation to both of you for making our stay such a pleasant experience.  Your home is beautiful.  Every tiny detail, such as the home’s instruction manual, the beautiful décor, the comfortable accommodations, a fully-stocked kitchen, and all of pool side extra’s, were so greatly appreciated.  Your kind welcome was truly appreciated.

 I know that we will definitely return for additional stays in the future as our sister lives in Glendale. 

 Again, thank you for sharing your home with us!

Awesome house - the owner thought if everything we would need - perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious and accommodating for large families or groups. We spent a lot of time outside by the pool eating, talking and just enjoying the experience. It is large enough to film "Big Brother" in it. John is a very gracious host and made us feel very welcome.

Wonderful place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely...nicely furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were well-stocked with consumable products that are often not available in rental condos or homes. The owners were great when we called with questions. It was a perfect place for our tennis team.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We're glad you like all the little extras. We love to travel and we've stayed in many homes and we know that sometimes the little things just help enhance the trip. That's why we always ask if there's anything missing or if there's something you'd suggest to make it better. We appreciate your nice feedback and hope to see you again!

Desert Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful vacation home. We have been coming to the Phoenix area for our Spring Break for the last five years and this has been by far the nicest home we have rented through VRBO. The home has had some changes of bedding and redecorating making it even more lovely that the current online profile pictures show. The home and property were very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and baking. The backyard patio, pool and hot tub were great. We paid for pool heat as it still gets cold overnight and the pool temperature was perfect for hours of swimming each day. There is a nice park across the street from this home with play structures and a basketball court that our kids played at each day. There are also many stores and restaurants nearby. The owners were terrific to work with as well. They answered messages quickly. We hope to return to the area next year and hope to rent this home again. We would highly recommend this rental.

Perfect rental for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has come to Arizona for many years to enjoy the sun, baseball and some good ol' family time. This house fits our needs best and we will be reserving it again next time we come to Arizona. The house was clean, well-stocked and was easy to follow any instructions that pertained to the home. The owners were very accommodating should any needs arise. They even sent my daughters computer back after she left it by accident. Thank you John and Deb for your wonderful rental.
