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!

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.

This property was incredible. I have rented a lot of homes and none were as well appointed as this.

  • 5 of 5

We love to cook and this kitchen had it all. Having the 5 bedrooms was so comfortable for us 6 ladies. We played hard tennis during the day and relaxed in the hot tub at night. Thank you John and Deb.

Wonderful place to stay

This place is just beautiful. Wonderfully located and in great condition. This is the second time we've stayed here (tennis team) and we will hopefully come back here again and stay. Absolutely no complaints.

Making Memories 2017

What a amazing home. It worked perfectly for our whole family. Our host got back to me on any & all questions. The home was in the perfect location, minutes to the stores, golf courses, spa & a park right across the street. We so enjoyed ourselves. We hope to book with John & Debbie again.

A wonderful home in a nice neighborhood close to stores and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of seven during Christmas! It’s clean, nicely decorated, and has plenty of room to spread out. We only cooked breakfasts, but the kitchen had all the appliances and utensils we needed. The gas fireplace created a cozy atmosphere on Christmas morning while we opened presents. Our favorite part was the pool (well worth the money to heat), jacuzzi, and putting green in the backyard. We appreciated that the home was stocked with pool towels as well as putters and golf balls so we had less things to pack. Maybe, most importantly, we appreciated the owners. They always responded quickly and carried through on exactly what they said they would. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy our Christmas trip without any worries! We would definitely stay at your lovely home again.
