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

Super close to Surprise Stadium and the Surprise Tennis complex. It's a short 15-20 minute drive to the University of Phoenix Stadium. MLB, NFL, NHL and NASCAR action close by with easy access.

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!

We had a group of 5 adults for a tennis competition 5 min up the road. The house was perfect. Kitchen very well appointed, as well as the rest of the house. They have everything you need. John was also very nice and responsive to questions. 5 stars for sure!

This is THE BEST VRBO I have ever stayed at and I have stayed at many VRBO's.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family and friends of 5 adults and 3 children. As a group, we were in awe of how well stocked the entire house was including dishes, appliances, both large and small and every utensil you could think of. There wasn't just one towel per person for the week, but there were at least 20 extra towels in the home. There was extra bedding if necessary. Every single thing worked all week long!!! :) The house is obviously well kept up, the pool and hottub are excellently maintained !! The layout of the house was perfect for all of us. There was plenty of room and areas for the kids to do "their thing" and adults theirs. The upstairs t.v. had gaming capability and the boys loved it!!! There is a putting green in the back yard along with the hot tub, pool and the most comfortable lounging furniture I have ever seen. People, if you are coming into the Phoenix area, look up this VRBO!!! You will NOT be disappointed. :) Lastly, the owner, John either answered his phone or within the hour had responded to my emails! That was impressive to me. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I GIVE THIS VRBO A 10 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 5!!

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family fun vacation at this house. It had everything we needed. The furnishings are great. There was plenty of space for our family of 6. We spent the most time enjoying the pool and spa. We also enjoyed time at the near by neighborhood park. We would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so happy that your family enjoyed our home. We are upgrading the last couple of rooms to the new digital cable and we've scheduled the house to be painted inside next month to match the new outside paint job. So during your next stay it should look brand new!

Great Home. Will Stay There Again When in Town

  • 5 of 5

The house worked very well.

Stocked with everything you need.

The upstairs area was great for the kids to play video games and hang out.

Bedrooms well done with great sleeping space.

Master bedroom provides a quiet place to get away from others if you want

Plenty of room in the living room for everyone.

Great open kitchen and bar for eating meals.

A quiet place to work in the formal dining room

We had teenage baseball players and they really enjoyed the pool and putting green.

We cooked a lot of meals so we could feed them better food and it had everything we needed.

Close to grocery stores

Good location for the baseball fields we played on.

It is just a great place with plenty of room and space to get by yourself if needed.

The pool and putting green will entertain kids for hours.

This is a great place for an extended stay.

Owners were great.
