About Noelle

Thanks for your interest in our property - a labor of love where we keep our roots in Arizona! We are an entrepreneurial couple who loves real estate and adventure, and we move frequently to follow our software consulting jobs, and love that we have a place to call home when we visit our families in the Phoenix area. This home is one we purchased after the boom and completely remodeled inside and out (including new roof, HVAC, exterior stucco, fence, yard & pool). We spent over a year on the renovations and knew early on we would use it as a vacation rental because of an impending move out-of state, therefore made certain improvements with our future guests in mind (such as a heater for the beautiful new pool :)

We have 3 other rental properties (and counting), but this is our only vacation rental. I, (Noelle) worked in hospitality throughout college and this kind of business is my passion! Helping travelers feel at home and taken care of during their vacations is easy with attention to a few details. I love dealing with our guests and exceeding expectations with a level of service and communication that is often too rare this day in age. I like to think that technology should only improve our experience, and not be a tool for people to hide behind when dealing with customers.

We are always accessible by phone, email and text and love any opportunity we get to talk to our guests! We hope you enjoy previewing our listing and hopefully getting a chance to stay there during your trip to the Tempe/Mesa area!

Noelle purchased this house in 2011

Why Noelle chose Mesa

We purchased this home initially to be closer to the buzz of downtown Tempe and Scottsdale where we recreated. Living in the suburbs no longer made sense for our commutes and lifestyle. We found this incredible opportunity for a great skeleton of a home that had been loved and lived in over the years, but needed new life breathed into it. After a year+ of renovations, we were getting compliments from all the neighbors and the mail carrier! It is now more reminiscent of a luxury home you would expect to find further outside of an established area. Admittedly, we knocked down a few walls to accomplish the end result, and it was worth it!

This is an established area of Mesa (1 mile from the Tempe border), and is sure to experience a new wave of improvements due to the recent infrastructure with Mesa Riverview, Tempe Marketplace, and the Cubs new spring training facility around the corner. We were fortunate enough to get in on the ground floor 1 year before the Cubs field opened, and saw a vision of a vacation home for us and travelers alike, due to an impending move out-of-state for work. We completed the improvements with this end-goal in mind.

One of my favorite aspects of the neighborhood from our time living there to complete renovations was the quiet, wide streets. I ran a lot and it was a great place for that, as well as running along the canal that intersects Rio Salado Parkway around the corner. Jumping in the pool after a serene run was heavenly for me. Another favorite moment was having morning coffee in the cooler months on the back patio, just soaking in the quiet and staring at the pool.

It turned out to be quite the haven only minutes from all the recreation we love, and only 10 minutes to the airport. We absolutely love this house and it's one of my favorite things that keeps us busy, from reservations, to monthly accounting, to our visits on-site catching up with family and making sure things stay top-notch for our lovely visitors!

This was the second time we have stayed at this home, and it is wonderful. The backyard is truly a retreat, and we spent many hours in the pool and on the patio enjoying ourselves! Noelle is incredible to work with - she even managed to send our teenager's phone back to us when it was left at the house. I highly recommend this home and owner!

Beautifully decorated and welcoming! Truly a resort like feel'

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs! We loved the inside layout and design! Everything is set up perfectly for vacationers. We did a lot of cooking so a few more pots/pans/bowls would have been useful, but we made do with what we had and purchased some throw away oven pans. Loved laying by the beautiful pool and relaxing outside! Would love to come back!

I have to mention how wonderful Noelle is to work with! She takes pride in her rental and making sure her guests are happy! I am so happy that I found this place! I couldn't have enjoyed my stay anymore than I did!

We absolutely love this house. The pics don't do it justice. The owner is super nice also. So sad to be leaving today! I would definitely rent this house again if I return to AZ which I plan to do in the near future. I'm loving this Arizona weather!!

Well decorated & taken care of

  • 5 of 5

First off Noelle worked with me on short notice and kept in touch. I loved the decor in the house well done. Our favorite was the room with wrap around couch TV & bar! So relaxing & we played sorry for the first time. Well stocked with books magazines and games. The outside area is so relaxing and loved the waterfall in pool. Beds slept good. Nice home with hands on owner! Near restaurants and shopping. Thanks for your remodeled home at a great price!
