About Marianne Auten

Marianne is a faculty member in Counseling at a local community college and also regularly leads workshops on the topics of growth mindset, grit, and goal achievement. Brad is a Chaplain at a large retirement home after having been a Commercial Beekeeper with 1600+ beehives for 26 years. We have been married for 34 years and have two grown children who are both married, and (so far) one adorable grandson. We both enjoy traveling, particularly to places with lots of great hiking, art, history, and theater.

Marianne Auten purchased this house in 1995

Why Marianne Auten chose North Mountain Village

We have lived in Arizona all of our lives. We bought this house in 1995 because it was a great house and location to raise our kids. At that time, it had a shop built on to it that was ideal for storing the equipment associated with Brad's beekeeping business. (The beehives were mostly up north in high desert). In 2002 we sold most of the bee business due to extended drought (no rain - no flowers - no honey). Last year, as empty-nesters, we turned the shop into an apartment and we live there - a fully separate house of 1550 sq ft - and opened up our 5 bedroom house (2500 sq ft) as a vacation rental as of September 2016. We have a cabin near Flagstaff that is a very successful vacation rental - so that inspired us to do the same with our big Phoenix house. We love homesharing and helping people enjoy the great state of Arizona!

What makes this house unique

Our 5 bedroom house is very much like home, very comfortable, and has lots of space to move and gather. The beautiful, extra large kitchen is a great gathering place that is open to the family room with big screen TV and the inviting covered patio outside. The large pool has a built-in slide and spa. The grass backyard includes a fire pit. There is a large dining table that seats 10. Five bedrooms all have very comfortable beds. Since we are on a corner lot, there is plenty of room for parking. We live next door so are readily available to help with anything you need as well as provide great tips on all the best spots in Phoenix as well as all of Arizona.

This was the perfect place for our family of 4 plus 2 grandparents to relax and unwind! Everything was great but the pool and kitchen were amazing. The owners were very responsive and super friendly. We’d definitely stay here again! Thanks for all your hospitality.

Absolutely a Fantastic Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything! I have rented homes before through the internet. None of them offered as much as this one did. The heated pool and spa were great. I have to say the water slide and ping pong table were the biggest hits. The home is very big which helped with a group of 9. Everyone found a comfortable place to sleep. The kitchen is so big and a delight to cook in. Brad and Marianne were very responsive to our needs. They shared helpful information about the home and Phoenix that made things easier throughout our stay. I have already told a few people at home about this place and will continue to. Thanks again to Brad and Marianne. The kids are already saying that they miss Yazzi.
