About the property

Beautiful updated 4 br home with sparkling pool

This is a great home in a very central North Phoenix location. It is close to the Freeway but backs up to the Mountain Preserve so it is very quiet! The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and has been updated throughout. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a walk-out patio. The upstairs bath is open to the master bedroom. The second upstairs bedroom has its own door but opens into the master bedroom area. The two downstairs bedrooms are both private and share a hallway bathroom. Travertine floors, new plush carpeting, new appliances and updated kitchen and baths make this a spectacular vacation retreat. This is our personal house, so everything has been done right. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. High speed wireless internet and cable television are included. The back yard is an entertainers dream with large covered patio, built in BBQ with sit-up bar, children's playground in back yard and a sparkling diving pool with extensive landscaping. NOTE: Pool is not heated! It is great for outdoor BBQ's and sitting out and enjoying the perfect Phoenix weather. If you like to hike or bike, you will love the hiking trails just out the front door. Everything is close by so you won't have to drive far for shopping, restaurants, golfing, sporting events, and all the other activities that Phoenix has to offer.

About Craig Meier

I was born in raised in SD but have lived in Phoenix for over 30 years. I love the outdoor lifestyle here and all the fun things to do in Phoenix. We are going to be snowbirds now and split our time between Phoenix and Crested Butte, CO. We decide that we would share our home in Phoenix with other adventurous travelers when we're not here.

Craig Meier purchased this house in 2005

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This location is very quiet and centrally located. Everything needed in the house was there and more. The view of the mountain right out the back foot was amazing and it was easily accessed for hiking.

I would recommend!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home for our little family reunion! Kids loved the backyard and the toys. Plenty of room for three families to spread out. Two bedrooms upstairs are connected (not really private) and the master bath does not have a door so keep that in mind for bigger groups. (It was perfect for a family/parents and kids though!) there’s an awesome park nearby and hiking behind the house. Loved it!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great place to stay. Lots of room, nice patio, great view of the Phoenix Mountain preserve out the back door. The cupboards were well stocked with dishes. The AC worked well and most rooms had ceiling fans.

The Pack and Play and lots of kids toys were used and appreciated. The owner was responsive to questions and accommodating.

About 30 minutes to the airport depending on traffic.

The only thing we would suggest for improvement would be a curtain or a free-standing screen over the opening to the upstairs bathroom. I'd also suggest curtains over the openings in the wall between the bedrooms upstairs for more privacy.

We would definitely consider staying there again should the need arise.

Visiting the Grand Canyon

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Phoenix property with our daughters, son in law, and grand children. The house was perfect for 8 people. The swimming pool was a life saver as the kids enjoyed swimming every time they got a chance. The back yard was beautiful. It was wonderful seeing a mountain off the patio

Great home for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable for our family's 10 day stay in Phoenix. The yard and pool were great for the kids. The kitchen was spacious and the dining room had plenty of space to accommodate everyone. The stairs had a baby gate which was a huge help with our one year old, as was the availability of a pack and play. Craig (the owner) was quick in responding to our questions. Overall it was a wonderful alternative to a hotel.

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. House was very clean and well kept. There was a minor issue with pool but it was corrected in an very timely manner. Owner is very easy to reach and responds very quickly, is very nice and professional.

Layout of the house is nice. 2 bedrooms downstairs with a full bath and 2 upstairs with a full bath. Upstairs is perfect for adults with small children.

Plenty of seating/dining and a really nice patio with an awesome view of mountains/hikers.

We will definite be back.
