About Lee

We love Arizona and travel! We have lived here for over 10 years. We enjoy this particular neighborhood because we can ride our bikes, hike, run or walk at any time of the day or night.

Lee purchased this house in 2014

Why Lee chose Phoenix

We love Arizona and loved this home because the open floorplan and views of the golf course quality greenbelt from the kitchen and bedroom while still maintaining our privacy. Resort style swimming pool offers the gorgeous mountain view. You can spend many hours hanging out at the pool. Neighborhood is very safe and quiet. It is away from the city noise but very convenient to access grocery stores, malls, restaurants and movie theaters.

What makes this house unique

This home offers the outdoor enthusiast the option to cook, eat, and be outside all year round. We love the neighborhood, the hiking and the views. You will be impressed with the feel of the inside furnishing!

False advertising of heated pool and poor business management

  • 2 of 5

I had a couple siblings and their spouses along with a neice and nephew along for a Spring Break trip from MN. When looking at hundreds of places in the area for rent, a heated pool was a must among our group, as MN Springs are very cold and the water here is 34 degrees around that time, and the kids love swimming all day. We really also wanted a hot tub but get that this place was good enough since the pool was heated. After seeing this place and comparing to many others, we decided on this place.

When we arrived there were several things that were surprising: there was a lot of hair in the showers and the towels and bedding were all wet. I informed Lee of this and he said he would make sure his cleaning ladies would do a better job next time (weird no apology or offer of a discount). After we were all unpacked, we were very excited to head to the pool area, being as it was 95 degrees and sunny. Once there, we tried the pool and noticed it was very very cold, probably around 40 degrees. The kids couldn't even stay in the water for two minutes without shivering. I asked a resident by the pool if there was a way to turn on the heater and he informed us that the association decided to save money and not turn the heat on for several months. This would have been great to know when booking this place as our group would have 100% opted for a different place, as now there was no heat and no hot tub. We stayed several days at the unit and couldn't enjoy the one thing we really looked forward to after a day of hiking.

I emailed Lee about the situation and he got very aggressive and defensive about the situation and even challenged why I even care if the pool was heated. After several exchanged heated emails from Lee, he did offer a $150 credit to our stay, so I accepted and chose to stay and just swim elsewhere. When I received my damage deposit after the trip, no $150 credit was on the bill. Lee explained that he could not credit through VRBO and that he would send a personal check to my address. Well, after several emails and several weeks, still no $150 check, and NO APOLOGY! Lee was very unprofessional (which is surprising because the reviews prior were very good). Now, 3 months later and a few more emails, still no reply from Lee. He had emailed back a couple months ago saying yes he will be singing the check and even asked for my address. Still nothing.

I will never stay here or do business with Lee again and I suggest the same for you.

Owner's Response: Sad to get a feedback from the 1st grumpy guest who did not tell the truth. Even though as he claimed the water was cold, the guests with many of his visitors (5 or 6 young kids and many adults) continued to use the pool on the daily basis. If the pool was so important to him, the guest never even bothered to contact the host about the heating and usage of the pool before or after the booking. Guest stated that he and his siblings wanted to visit their grandma in Mesa area but apparently they never left the house. Guest contacted the host early morning of the 2nd day of the arrival, we replied right away offering credit toward using a indoor pool or a heated pool at any other facility and we received no response until late that day. The guest wanted to cancel their booking even though they continued to use the pool and stayed at the house during the day. We immediately offered the option for him to cancel the rest of his stay. The guest declined and chose to stay. Does this make sense if he claimed that he could not enjoy his stay because of the pool? The guest later complained repeatedly, requested for $150 refund after their departure but later said he would not care if we send the money or not. We feel this guest provided many false info and he intentionally tried to damage our reputation. We would not tolerate such behavior and never welcome this customer again.

Spacious, beautiful, up-to-date and newer property

  • 5 of 5

It is exactly as it is described on this listing. Nice single family home, not a condo, in northern Phoenix quiet suburban location surrounded by mountains. City park is within a few minute drive, with children playground and hiking trail. Rooms are up to date, very clean and neat with good taste. There are many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping places within 15 minute radius just off the 17 freeway and 101. Can easily take day trip going north to Sedona, Flagstaff, and Grand Canyon. Would definitely come back to stay here.

Comfortable, Newer Townhome in Lovely, Quiet Community

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, just as pictured. The 3 bedrooms had very comfortable beds, and spacious closets. The living room couch was perfect for enjoying the large screen TV. Everything was clean. The kitchen, although minimally stocked with cooking pots/pans, had all we really needed for our stay. We never did find washcloths and kitchen towels, although paper towels were provided. We also purchased charcoal and utilized the community grill at the playground area. There were grilling utensils in the kitchen. We used the washer/dryer several times.

The pool area was a short walk from the town home. It was wonderful! It was aesthetically pleasing with the surrounding greenery/landscaping. It had a pretty view of the foothills. The lounge chairs were plentiful and the pool temperature was comfortable. There were also restrooms on site which was convenient with children. The pool was seldom used by others, so we almost always had it to ourselves! Adjacent to the pool was a green area that could be used for the kids to play catch or run around.

The town home community was quiet and safe, and the surrounding area had plentiful sidewalks. One of the greatest assets of this property was the proximity to Deem Hills Recreation Area. It was less than a mile walk and had so much to offer! We frequently went there in the mornings to play Frisbee on the two massive soccer fields. The covered playground area was also very nice. On a couple of occasions we hiked the walking paths up the foothills. Enjoyable!

This Deer Valley property was within a 5 minute drive to a Safeway Grocery. Another 5 minutes, close to the freeway, there was a huge shopping area with a beautiful outdoor mall and movie theater and several more stores and restaurants.

We did have trouble with the temperature in the master bedroom at night. The arrival instructions indicated not to turn the thermostat below 76. It was warm, and the ceiling fan rattled so we often opened the window instead, which helped. We also could never get the cable working in the master bedroom. The arrival instructions also said the green area out the kitchen window, which is shown in the advertisement pictures for walking paths is actually private property, and we were told we would be evicted for playing there. Thus, we went to Deem Hills.

The owner, Lee, was very attentive and easy and cordial to work with! Our damage deposit was quickly refunded. All in all, great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking your valuable time to write such a detailed feedback! All future guests will benefit from your wonderful experience. We have already addressed the fan and cable issue in master bedroom. The greenbelt belongs to the master community plan which we are part of. Guests of the house are welcome to take a stroll along the pathway or on the grass. The sign there is to discourage people who don’t live in the community to play team sports on the grass. Please come back to stay with us when you visit Phoenix next time!

Nice Home, Clean and Current

  • 4 of 5

Nice single family home, not a condo, in northern Phoenix suburban location. Plenty of room to spread out, very clean and neat and just off the 17 freeway and 101. Couple of miles to services but overall convenient. Only complaint is no outdoor grill and kitchen is dark. We cooked during our stay and would have enjoyed a grill.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your honest feedback. Since the fence is plastic, we intentionally decided not to leave a grill for safety reason. There is a community grill station just a few minutes walk away and it might be a better alternative. We can also consider to increase the voltage of the light bulbs used in the kitchen to make it brighter at night. Please come back to visit!
