About Nancy Hjelmstad

This is our first time as an owner of a rental property. As many people do now a days, we have family spread throughout the United States. We have used VRBO in the past when visiting relatives in various states and found it to be much preferable over hotels and motels. That is why we have decided to open our home to vacationers.

We originally purchased this home for my daughter, who attended university in Phoenix. She has since graduated and moved on. The home still sports several pieces of art that she created while attending college. We still come out here from time to time to visit relatives.

We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to adding upgrades to the home as time goes by to enhance the experience for our guests.

We offer a pet friendly home. I am also a dog person, I own and show dogs, rarely do I travel without one or two by my side. For that reason this home is set up to be pet friendly. So few places can offer a safe run around space for our four legged friends. In order to keep it this way, I ask visitors to clean up after your pet, and utilize the raised pet beds provided for your convenience and keep your pets off the furniture. Please no grooming inside the house.

Thank You for choosing our home.

Enjoyed our stay, very quiet neighborhood. Great back porch spent the evenings there after watching Spring Training games. Centrally located to many of the Spring Training Ballparks. The house was retro, throw-back to the 70's, reminds me of a Scorsese Movie. I recommend to anyone who likes peace and quite in a clean home. Nancy's a great host, very friendly.

Great location, property, and owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay the first week of February 2016. Nancy takes great care of the property and was attentive to our needs. Everything was clean and in good order. The house is as she describes it retro, but we found it very comfortable for our stay. Being in north-central Phoenix it is very easy to get to most anywhere you want to go. It would be nice to have a larger tv in the living room, but outside of that we were very happy with our stay. I would recommend staying there.

A good place for us

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples with pets, staying for a week. We were there for spring training games, and it was a great location for that, and for being there without worry about pets. There was a good yard and a kennel for pets. The house was well furnished, with a good amount of kitchen supplies. The house is in central Phoenix, in a quiet neighborhood. The owner and her daughter were very responsive to the household issues that arose. We would stay there again.
