About Jim and Jan Paulsen

Spring Training baseball, the Cubs, that is what started it all! We fell in love with the Mesa area. From Montana, looking forward to retirement, we started 'the plan' and it included purchasing this beautiful home near the mountains in AZ. We need a home this large to welcome our 3 adult children and 10 grandchildren on occasion. We are delighted to share our home with vacationers until we are able to use it more often.

Jim and Jan Paulsen purchased this house in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

In an e-mail Gail said, "everything is great here, already considering a return trip next year. The evenings are especially beautiful outside. We were very comfortable in this home, great place to rent".

Loved this VRBO Home

  • 5 of 5

This home worked great for our family. It was clean and comfortable. The beds were great, neighborhood was safe and quiet, and it had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Mesa.

Comfortable, with everything you'll need/want!

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed here in March 2018 for a week. 4 adults, 3 children and 1 baby. The house is very spacious and comfortable. There was definitely enough space for a group our size. The master walk-in closet made a perfect "bedroom" for the baby. The house had everything we needed, down to a pack-n-play, high chair, basket full of toys for the kids, DVDs, a cheese grater and all the little things you need for cooking. The bathrooms were all stocked with lots of towels and shampoo (Pantene), etc. The bedrooms were private and very sound-proofed, you couldn't hear anything from the other bedrooms. The washer and dryer fit huge loads of laundry! The owners were very quick to respond and very helpful!!! They provided us with all the information in a nice package, and everything in the house is labelled. The thought and organization that they put into this rental process is really appreciated, made it very easy. The house is such a nice neighborhood (gated), with a lovely playground in walking distance. Also near the playground (and just off the school parking lot) is a beautiful walking trail with little "stations" for kids along the way (dig for dinosaurs, telescope, etc). We really enjoyed it! The house isn't very close to many "amenities" like if you wanted to run for a quick coffee. You do have to drive 10+ minutes to get to a grocery store, etc. A new complex has been built, sort of near by (Basha's, which has a Starbucks inside, is already open). But I think you still have to drive to get there. The pool has a sturdy fence around it with a gate to enter, which was important to us with little ones. If I remember correctly, it was about a 30-40 min drive from Sky Harbour airport. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: It is heart warming to know your family enjoyed the Mesa Home. Sounds like it was a good match for you all, the house, the yard, and the neighborhood. Thanks for doing a couple of "home owner" chores, much appreciated! You are welcome back any time. Jim and Jan

Great family home in a nice quiet, safe neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Two families of four stayed very comfortably here. Lots of room for everyone to spread out. The rooms were large and all the beds very comfortable. There were plenty of basic cooking items and toiletries to use which was greatly appreciated. Just replace as needed. The backyard is very big with plenty of grass for kids to run around and play. We loved that the pool was gated so we didn't have to worry about toddlers running around. Pool was kept at a very comfortable 85 degrees and the kids (and adults) loved it. Home is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, towels, etc. The location is a nice quiet gated community. For families looking for a home to relax and enjoy the weather, this home is great. We would certainly book again and recommend the home to others. Thanks for a great holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Kerri. We are delighted to hear you all felt safe in the neighborhood and pool area with your little kids. Vacation time should be hassle free and it sounds like around the house anyway it was! We'd love to have you back! Jim and Jan

Really happy with our holiday

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we walked in, the house felt like home. It was tastefully decorated, the beds were comfortable & we loved the heated pool in the back yard. It was a family holiday with both our daughters, their husbands and our 2 granddaughters visiting us. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much & the house was very comfortable. The owners have thought of the comfort of their guests & it shows. Thanks Jan & Jim for a great holiday! We'll want to come back.
