Great place to hang out in Gilbert
"Our family rented the house for 5 days over Thanksgiving as a "base" for visiting family in Gilbert and Mesa.
Amenities were as described. DVD, TV, cable worked fine. Pool was fine, but chilly (or "refreshing", if you prefer:-) since it was late November. Pool table was fun. The kitchen had everything we needed, even though we did not cook extensively.
Beds were comfortable. We slept well, and had no problems sleeping in as long as early risers in the living room/kitchen area were not deliberately loud.
We enjoyed hanging out in the living room together, watching TV or playing cards, or sitting in the sun by the pool when we weren't visiting relatives in the area.
Grocery store and good restaurants were within 5 minutes. We liked Zappone's Italian Bistro (NW corner of Baseline and Higley), Rancho de Tia Rosa (Guadalupe & Higley). Joe's Farm Grill was also good, but a little further away (Ray Rd between Higley and Santan Fwy). The relatives also introduced us to TopGolf one afternoon -- lots of fun (driving range, but a lot more fun -- google it).
This was a perfect way to visit people in the area without imposing on them constantly. We visited with relatives in the area some each day, but did not have to be constantly underfoot. The price was reasonable -- same as 3 rooms at the Extended Stay America, but FAR more comfortable and convenient.
PS - If you are going to the airport during morning rush hour, allow an extra hour -- for stop-and-go traffic on US-60, for returning the rental car and getting from the rental car center to the terminal, and for getting through security (busier than I've seen at other airports, but it was Monday after Thanksgiving)."
