Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Heated Pool

Welcome to Casa de Toro!

Looking for a relaxing getaway in beautiful Phoenix close to Spring Training, Hockey and Football? Look no further! This conveniently located 3 bedroom beautiful home is fully furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay for you and your family in the sun. Relax around the beautiful, private heated pool in the day and wind down in the evening with a bbq and drinks around the fireplace table. The pool deck has ample seating: 2 loungers, 2 high top chairs and 4 seats around the fire table in the shade.

The open living room/kitchen area in this rancher has vaulted ceilings, lots of windows and is adjacent to the pool. The layout is easily accessible by everyone, has no stairs and is a perfect space where everyone can hang out together without feeling cramped. You can star gaze at night on the pool patio after putting the kids to bed without worrying about disturbing those who turned in early. There's ample RV parking along the east side of the house as well.

The home has been tastefully decorated with a southwest theme and is meticulously cleaned and maintained - much better than a hotel! Outside, you'll find a beautiful desert landscape with cacti, palms other beautiful vegetation to make your stay extra memorable.

Complimentary high speed wireless internet included in price along with a multimedia entertainment system, 200+ channel TV/PVR's in the living room and master bedroom. Telephone landline available for local calls, so you don't have to use your cellphone minutes.

We have a combination solar/heat pump system for the pool. So, we can turn on the heat pump for you when solar alone is not enough to get the pool to 85 (29c) Nov through March.

We're a 15 min cab ride to the Westgate Entertainment District. Leave your car at home and jump in a taxi for some great restaurant, sports, shopping and entertainment options. Go the opposite direction to get to the White Tank Mountains and Wildlife Word Zoo in 15 mins. Really something here for everyone in the family.

About Sasha Obad

We are a family of 4 from British Columbia, Canada. I enjoy managing the property myself and have a great team to help me close to the home. If you don't get through to me right away, please leave me a message, send me a text, or an email via the contact owner tab. I will be sure contact you as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to welcoming you to Casa de Toro and a slice of paradise in the desert Southwest.

Sasha Obad purchased this house in 2009

Why Sasha Obad chose Arizona

We love the central location of this property, layout and we added the pool a few years ago for everyone to enjoy - what's the point of fantastic weather unless you can cool off in the pool? It's completely different experience to our home in Canada. We find people in Arizona extremely friendly, welcoming and enjoy the diverse culture.

We only have so many opportunities to vacation in Phoenix as the family also enjoys camping up here in BC in the summer. This leaves us with about a week per year to enjoy the property ourselves. The weather is consistent - unlike home, you can make outdoor plans far in advance without worrying about rain. We like this neighbourhood because it's quiet and conveniently located close to whatever we need.

Awesome private heated pool!

  • 5 of 5

I found this property when I was looking for a place to stay after a visit to the Grand Canyon with my elderly parents. I didn't intend to book a place so far South, but am so glad we did!

What appealed to me most was the one level home and the pool had stairs and a railing to get in and out. Many of the properties I looked at had beautiful pools, but with no visible way to get in and out without having to climb a ladder or simply step in/out of a shallow end, but with nothing to hang on to.

The house seemed a bit out in the "boonies" at first, but it's actually super close to everything we needed/wanted. Within a short drive you can find every possible chain of restaurant and stores for shopping and a Walmart that is super close.

The house is very clean, well maintained and private. When you are enjoying the patio or in the pool, you couldn't hear any street noise or neighbors. We felt safe and secure. The pool was heated and I was able to uncover/cover the pool by myself. I'm so glad that I picked this property as my parents were able to get in and out of the pool easily without help.

All amenities were provided, including paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap and laundry detergent. The owner's have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, including noodles for the pool!

We enjoyed our stay very much. We were there during a record breaking heat, but we just hung out by the pool, listened to the fountain and when we were done with that, we enjoyed the central air and cable TV.

The owner, Sasha, was quick to reach out to me after I booked the property and during our stay when I needed to speak to him, he quickly returned my call. I felt like he really appreciated our business and was happy to hear we were having a great time.

I typically like to go to different places when I vacation, but I am already trying to figure out when I can get back to this property! It was probably one of the most stress-free, relaxing weeks of my life!

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as stated in the writeup. Don't know if always the case but the place was well stocked with basic supplies - catchup, mustard, relish, all kinds of spices, oil, vinegar etc. so it made things very easy to have meals there. Lots of glasses and dishes and appliances. There were also cleaning supplies and paper products. The pool was great and loved the waterfall. The location was a little further from most of the activities we wanted to do but rarely got caught in traffic jams so we had a chance to see most of the area. Great restaurants within 15 minute drive and just down the street from Walmart. Would recommend with 5 stars

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 7-month-old baby, and I had a great stay here and we can’t wait to re-book! The house was clean and spacious, and the neighbourhood was quiet. The house was perfectly set up, comfortable (great sectional couch), and even had some food and household staples already in the cupboard (spices, olive oil, coffee, coffee filters, etc.). The closet in the master bedroom was so big we turned it into the nursery and it was perfect for the baby’s sleep. We spent every night on the patio by the pool, under the palm trees and stars, sitting by the table fireplace, drinking wine. It. Was. Divine.

In addition, there are lots of conveniences nearby: a Walmart, Safeway, Starbucks, restaurants, all within a 5 minutes’ drive.

The owner went above and beyond to make us comfortable: when he learned we were traveling with a baby, he had a high chair and umbrella stroller delivered to the house! Needless to say, he was a pleasure to deal with. We loved every bit of it and the only thing we would have changed is staying 10 days instead of 7. Highly recommended.

Very clean and well stocked!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the overall experience at this very well stocked home!

The pool was very clean and refreshing.

The only draw back were the beds... Very firm and not real comfortable.

Sure would have liked a King in the Master!

Great location for spring training!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house had everything we needed and more. We absolutely loved hanging out in the backyard, and the kids were in the pool every spare minute. I would highly recommend staying here! And we hope to come back again soon.
