Home away from home!

Beautiful! We had a wonderful time on our vacation visiting family! Our stay couldn't have been better! Every accommodation was met and the location was amazing! I was looking for a safe place for my family to relax and this was exactly the right place. Thanks Jen and Colin! We would love to stay there again!

If you don't book this home you will never know what you missed out on for your trip to AZ!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week of April 20 - 27, spring of 2018. Everything about this home was perfect! I was pleasantly surprised to find that we really could have just brought a carry on bag to stay here. We could not find anything we were missing and needed to run out and purchase. Every kitchen tool you can think of was at your finger tips. The beds were comfortable and linens all cozy and new. The washer & dryer, complete with detergent & dryer sheets, was a great addition. When we return next year we will bring half of the clothing we packed. This home is clean and updated! The pool was rarely left unattended by us and was so much fun to wake up to each warm and sunny day and have coffee on the deck. There is an incredible covered deck with paddle fans and a lower patio area where the BBQ sits. The owners, Jen & Colin are great! They really make the arrival and departure a breeze by sending all the information you need in advance. The neighborhood was perfect and close to everything. So easy to take in a Diamondback game from this location, too. It was fun to see golfers throughout the day on hole 17. The only downside........wait for it.....yep, I cried when it was time to go home!! We will be back and I mean it! Thank you so much Colin & Jen! Your home is lovely and I think you for sharing it with us.

Very nice comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The place was clean, beds very comfortable and everything available for our use was labeled and visible. My only regret was not knowing we needed to make arrangements ahead of time to have the pool heated. It was disappointing to not be able to use it when we got there. I contacted the owner and for an additional fee (only $30 total) they came over and turned it on. Unfortunately it took a couple days to really warm up so we lost time. All in all though a very nice stay and I would recommend staying here. Just know about the heater if you plan to use the pool. The waters pretty cold without it this time of year. The owners were very nice people too!
