A mini resort
This is a superb house and property. It is incredibly spacious with large bedrooms and living spaces. The ceilings are very high, giving the sense of real luxury and something quite out of the ordinary. The yard, in comparison, is modestly sized but perfectly fine for family/friend gatherings The pool was inviting and well cared for. Really, everything was in great condition. Like staying in a nice resort, though with the control and privacy you could not get there. I would stay there again without hesitation. A great vacation experience for me and for the family living in Phoenix who came and enjoyed the property with me. I thought it looked good, but it is better than good.
I want to first start out by saying that this home, our overall vacation, and owner were really great! We had a blast, loved the house and we would stay here again.
These next several things are really minor, but this is what held me back from giving the property a 10 out of 10 review. I know these may not matter to everyone, but seeing as how this is the 4th house we have rented through HomeAway over the past 4 years, these are the things we noticed.
The overall cleanliness of the house was average. The floors were very dirty and when walking around barefoot your feet were black at the end of the day. I think it just needs a good old scrubbing. The owners have a dog and the dog hair is everywhere. In between the couch cushions, in the drawer under the oven, and on the decorative pillows on the couch. The bath mats in the casita bathroom were supposed to be white but they were stained dark brown. They just needed a little bleach and a good washing/soak.
There are absolutely no extra linens. The house advertises that the couch in the bonus room can be used to sleep on, but there are no pillows or linens for it. There are also no blankets to use when watching a movie on the couch.
There is no house manual. Everything is somewhat self explanatory, but no directions on how to use the indoor and outdoor speakers in the ceiling. That would have been nice to use as we love to play music while sitting at the pool.
The pool and spa worked great until it became cloudy on day 6. The response from the owner was that the pool guy would be there within the next two days. The pool guy told us that the pump needed to be cleaned and flushed. When the spa stopped working (jets) the pool guy said it was because of the pump needing to be cleaned.
There is very minimal paper products. Only one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom. We don’t mind having to buy our own, but it would have been nice to know that it was not included.
There is also no laundry detergent to wash towels. When staying there for 8 nights with a family, washing of linens needs to be done. This was always provided for us in our other rentals. It’s ok if it isn’t, but it was not communicated to us. Just would have been nice to know.
Overall these are minor, but still need to be addressed. Maybe a new cleaning crew is needed?
Thanks for hosting us Joe! Hope you find the insights helpful. We would stay again for sure!
I am very sorry to read this review. We will be taking immediate steps to rectify the issues you have outlined.
Fabulous vacation home!!!
There is nothing you need that this home does not have for a short or extended stay. We spent 6 fabulous weeks enjoying this resort style house. The backyard was an oasis with a heated pool, hot tub and outdoor barbecue area. We spent the majority of our time outside. With four bedrooms (one a separate casita) we had plenty of room for our larger extended family to visit. Our host was very helpful and responsive to anything we needed. We will be back!!
Beautiful Place to Relax and Enjoy the Area!
We have used VRBO frequently and by far this is the best place we have stayed. Very clean and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook both inside and outside on the grill - and we cooked/grilled just about everyday we were here. Though the weather didn't always cooperate on this trip we still could put on our jackets and enjoy the outdoor space under the overhang. Great walking path right outside the door with Fry's grocery store just down the road to pick up what we may have forgotten. Joe was always available if we had a question - which was great!
Even nicer than advertised
The pictures don't do this house justice. We loved everything and were amazed at how nice and clean it was. North Phoenix is quiet and this house definitely had that suburban feel to it. We would absolutely stay here again.
Thank you for the kind words, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to hosting you in the future!
Beautiful place, perfect set up!
Awesome experience, close to all needed amenities and very clean!
