A Wonderful Place to Spend the Winter

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this lovely home five of the last seven winters. We planned on staying here again this winter, but health issues got in the way.

Please refer to all previous reviews, as they "tell it all". We considered this home "our second home", without all the issues associated with long distance home ownership. We know that you will find the home and neighborhood safe and comfortable and John and Kathy to be wonderful landlords. You absolutely cannot go wrong by renting this home.

Snow Bird Delight Review

  • 5 of 5

Last year my husband and I stayed 3 months in John and Kathy's home. We so enjoyed our stay that we made a reservation to stay there again this year for four months. Unfortunately, because of medical issues that have recently developed, we will be unable to return this winter.

John and Kathy's home is clean, private. well appointed and well suppled. We enjoyed our time hiking about the neighborhood and nearby desert and on the patio grilling and playing horseshoes. It is in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. Entertainment, dining, golfing and other activities are near by as are goods and services. From the back wall, we could see California: Nevada was close at hand as is the Colorado River. There are many places, both man made and natural, nearby to explore. We had no problem finding someone to cut my hair (see card in their kitchen drawer with other local info) and found a friendly church nearby (Mojave Valley UMC). You could not ask for better landlords.

We know that anyone who stays in this home will have a very enjoyable respite form the doldrums of winter. We hope to return next year. We would rate this home, area, and owners a # 10!

For more info see our previous review.

Snow Bird Delight Review

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time "snow birding" and we couldn't have come to a better home. Our three months here have gone much too fast! The description and photos in the listing accurately reflected the home and its amenities. This home is clean, comfortably and attractively furnished, well maintained and well supplied. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The transaction for the home went smoothly and John was prompt in answering any questions that we had. We feel that the Mohave Valley area is probably the best place to winter. The weather here is the same or better than Phoenix. Unlike the valley (Phoenix area) there is very little congestion and no smog. Being so close to Laughlin and its entertainment and economical dining is a definite plus!

We would DEFINITELY recommend this home!

Snow Bird Delight Review

  • 5 of 5

We rented John and Kathy's home in February and March 2010. The home is very clean, comfortable, well furnished and well maintained. We felt like we were living in our own home. The neighborhood is quiet, and the neighbors were very friendly. We feel that whoever rents this home in the future will be as satisfied as we were. We would recommend it to friends, relatives, or anyone else who would contact us. John and Kathy were excellent landlords and were available to answer any and all questions we had. If we vacation in the Mohave Valley area again we will definitely consider renting this home if it is available. Thank you, John and Kathy, for letting us rent and enjoy your beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Since this is our third winter in the lovely state of Arizona, I must say that our stay in John and Kathy's home was without question the most enjoyable. Our daily walks around the subdivision not only provided us with much needed exercise, but gave us the opportunity to see and visit with many of the residents as well as other visitors. Since our next winter will be spent on the other side of the country, I look forward to the future and the possibility of returning to this lovely home.

Again, thanks to John and Kathy for sharing their home with us.
