About Marji Baumann
Marji is an Arizona native. She has lived in Tempe for the majority of the time, graduated from ASU with a mechanical engineering degree. She worked for Motorola/On Semi and Honeywell Aerospace. She recently moved to Strawberry full time and spends her time gardening and community service.
Marji Baumann purchased this House in 2007
Why Marji Baumann chose Foothills Reserve
My husband and I originally purchased this home in 2007 as an investment. We enjoyed preparing the home for our guests including designing our own little oasis in the backyard. We enjoyed going to the movies so we set up our own movie theater to view some of our favorite movies. The home is too large for just me so I decided to rent it and share it with others through VRBO.
What makes this House unique
I love how spacious the house is and have decorated it in a relaxing Southwestern fashion. From the pool in the backyard to the theater room, guests can enjoy their stay at this property. Access to the main freeways to navigate your way around Phoenix and the surrounding area is easy and very straightforward. So if you are here to just relax and get-away or want to hike, golf, take in professional sports, site see, shop, visit casinos or whatever, this home will accommodate you for a stay you won't forget.

Personal Desert Resort!
Marji was an amazing, welcoming host! She made the entire process seamless and was very helpful. Her home is gorgeous and our family enjoyed the beautiful décor and everything the home offered. The kitchen is a natural gathering place and we all enjoyed the beautiful pool and outside area. We spent mornings on the porch enjoying our breakfast and watching the birds. The house was spacious for each us to have a quiet space when needed :). There were small children in our group (very kid friendly home and even came with toys!) and we mostly stayed at home (no reason to leave with the swimming pool, theatre, outdoor grill and nearby trails!). We were in town for a graduation in downtown Phoenix so we did venture into the downtown area one day. In Phoenix, recommend Windsor's and The Welcome Diner's fried green tomato sandwich!). Nearer to the home, we recommend Barro's for pizza and Thai Delight - excellent food and very helpful owner (even carried out my order to the car!) The Whole Foods in Tempe was a little small but had the basics; but if you're a serious Whole Foodie then recommend going to the Phoenix location. We also enjoyed the excellent early morning mountain biking trails nearby. Overall, everyone loved our stay in Marji's beautiful home and none of us were ready to leave! Thank you Marji!
The home was very nice and had many supplies that were required for our stay
We had a group of 7 golfers that enjoyed the home. The area is easily accessible from the airport, about 30 minutes, and the golfer courses were usually 30-40 minutes away.
The house is very nice and the area has many restaurants within a 15 minute drive.We look forward to returning.
Loved our Stay!
Loved our stay! Beautiful home! Loved the neighborhood! Great walking trails. Very family friendly! The home was clean and had all the utensils and supplies we needed! Kids loved the pool and the theater room! We were a family of 6, plus Grandma, so a total of 7 and had more than enough room! We will definitely be back!
Very nice property!
There were 4 couples who rented this property and it was very spacious for that amount of people. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and spent the majority of our time in the backyard area. The place is adequately supplied with essentials and the owner is easy to communicate with via email or phone.
Beautiful home and great pool!
Really enjoyed our stay at this home in southwest Phoenix area. Very spacious and well stocked with kitchen items, towels, and the pool was wonderful! It was exactly as shown the pictures, but we weren’t allowed to use the outdoor balcony off the master bedroom. The home is quite a ways from the big city activities so if you want to do things in Scottsdale or downtown Phoenix areas, it is a bit of a drive. Other than that, great neighborhood and very clean. Having the heated pool and waterfall was a great addition and the kids enjoyed the theatre room during their inside time. Marji was super to work with and responded to our questions promptly. Would highly recommend this property to others wanting an affordable home with a pool and fire pit for family or friends to gather. Very enjoyable experience for our group of 7!
We had 3 families staying here to celebrate a 40th anniversary. This home was perfect for all from ages 2 yrs. - 60+. The home is so spacious we all had our own living areas and privacy. We enjoyed daily activities in town and then quiet peaceful evenings around the beautiful pool. We never went out to dinner for our planned celebration because the house provided all of the glamour and necessities we needed to cook our own feast. The theater room was such a treat for secluded viewing for the late nighters without disturbing others. The amenities were plentiful and luscious. Loved the high quality sheets. We arrived the same day as departing guests and the house was pristine and immaculate. We have stayed at many VRBO's and this is at the top of our list. Marji answered every one of our emails promptly and courteously. We would love to come back for another visit. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Blessings.
