About George McBride
I am a persistent entrepreneur commercializing a technology for treating heart failure over the web. My background has a theme - technology. The industries range from lease finance to medical devices and systems. I managed a lease finance division at BofA. I designed, built and installed process control and administrative systems for large data bases. You can find me on LinkedIn as George McBride. My wife, Carole is a retired pre-school teacher known affectionately by hundreds of students as "Miss Carole". We are grandparents of boys and girls in the lower grades and high school. The picture is our 50th anniversary. We were married as children.
George McBride purchased this House in 1998
Why George McBride chose Tatum Ranch
We are empty nesters. The size of this house fits our needs nicely. This house is a manageable size. Zero maintenance means you are dead. The list of something to fix or improve is continuous. With a house this size these challenges are at least manageable. The location is a compromise. Our friends are scattered around the north side of the valley. The location is a “sort of” center. The 101 beltway’s proximity (6 miles) is efficient. For the spring training fans, the location is a compromise distance to most of the parks. In 2016 the kitchen had a complete work-over. The counters, appliances, and cabinets are new. I designed a "floating” island / bar for entertaining and food preparation. The island sits on large wheels for easy movement. The frame is welded stainless steel. It is indestructible (no maintenance). The back deck faces south. The winter sun warms the back deck. It is ideal for casual breakfast. There is a small TV in cabinet on the deck for the morning news or an evening ball game.
What makes this House unique
Our house is made for comfortable living. In the winter, the morning sun warms the sitting area on the patio where we sit with coffee. The beauty of the Arizona winter is endless sunshine. While the nights are cool, the sun makes every morning comfortable. Having lived in Cleveland and Pennsylvania I remember slate gray skies and never missed them - not once.

Way beyond our expectations!
I contacted the owner of this property and explained what I was looking for in a vacation home. My daughter and I needed in a nutshell rest, relaxation and to feel safe.
This property delivered 110%!
We absolutely loved the area because in minutes you could have anything you need and a wonderful variety of things to do.
The home is alot bigger than it looks in the pictures. We loved all the personal touches and felt like we somehow knew the owners.
There is everything you would ever need. Kitchen was completely stocked to cook for two or twenty -two.
The patio was amazing with the pool and awesome barbecue. The majority of our time was spent there! Honestly several days we didn't leave the property.
We loved the property and the area . We will go back and hopefully stay longer!!
Highly ,highly recommend this property. We asked for a place of refuge and George and Carol Mcbride delivered!
Very nice property---beautiful furnished home
This is an excellent property --the home is nicely furnished, well maintained -- with a resort pool and backyard for enjoyment. The location is very accessible to the metropolitan Phoenix areas. The owners, George and Carole McBride, are excellent landlords -- very responsive to any concern. We enjoyed our stay in this home and recommend it to other renters.
What a beautiful place to stay
We were guests for 2 months. House has a very open floor plan. It is fully stocked with everything you would need to do gourmet cooking. The Landscaping in the back yard is very pleasing to the eye. Fresh Grapefruit and Oranges. All fully enclosed back yard. A small grass area that is well maintained. Excellent office facility that is very quiet. Comfortable Beds and beautiful linens. Just bring your clothes and there is plenty of closet space. We will definitely be staying again.
Rick and Kay were perfect guests. For example, Rick made repairs in is spare time. That is award winning performance.
Staging for the next guest was trivial - everything was clean. We were left with a little dusting.
They are planning to return; we are hoping they do.
Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed home
Perfectly situated in gorgeous community. Exceedingly generous hosts. House has everything one could possibly want to settle right in at home. Outstanding decor and most beautifully landscaped backyard we've ever had. Dogs permitted so our little one loved the very nearby park where he met lots of dog friends. House is close to all amenities: stores, cinemas, the extraordinary Museum of International Music - a must-see. Highly recommend this house and look forward to possibly staying again.
Betsy was a wonderful guest.
She is the first to use the rotisserie for cooking. I had the opportunity of training one of her daughters in the black art of rotisserie.
Beautiful and Peaceful Backyard
George was a terrific host. Very nice home in a friendly, quiet, neighborhood. They have a beautifully landscaped backyard. It was a joy to spend time out there for morning coffee, or a glass of wine, at sunset. Pretty much everything you need is very close by -- including a dog park, within easy walking distance. I loved the fact that the Sonoran Desert trails were only a mile away. Lots of fun hiking, and horseback riding, adventures.
