About Helen S.

This property was our first venture into the vacation rental business. We purchased the home in 2013 and had it totally renovated inside and out. We aim to provide the same kind of high standards that we ourselves, would expect to find in a vacation rental home. Our excellent reviews will attest to this.

Our second property in the adjacent gated community just went online at the end of August 2014. SEE VRBO 617218 for further details.

One of the best Vacation Rental properties we have stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this property, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Wonderful people to deal with. The place is beautifully decorated and has comfortable beds. They have not forgot one detail with things a person may want or need when staying at there place. They even have folding lawn chairs and a cooler so we could pack a lunch and head to Canyon Lake for the afternoon. They had a hummingbird feeder outside on the patio, I would get up in the morning and make a cup of coffee and enjoy watching the hummingbird zoom around. They also gave us wonderful information on things to do and places we could visit during our stay. If you like kayaking Canyon Lake is beautiful, if you like hiking trails that are close by we enjoyed Usery Mountain , Superstition mountain . We also took a day trip to Sedona and did some hiking there as well. Grocery stores and restaurants are very close.

We have stayed at many vacation rental properties but this is one of my favourites in Mesa. I would give it 5 stars out of 5.

This home is beautiful, comfortable, and stocked with all the comforts of home. The location was convenient to many destinations. The thoughtful owner generously provided a welcome package.

This place is a gem! In a small, gated community in the northeastern corner of Mesa, this very well appointed house (3 BR, 2 bath) is handy to freeways, grocery stores, national forest, and the airport. The owner generously includes a "welcoming package, " renters have access to a small community pool, and the walled backyard has a grill and chairs to enjoy reading and chatting. The owner and her husband are available for repairs or other emergencies. We were delighted!!!

Perfect Choice, Very Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home and private backyard, with an owner who genuinely cares about her guests comfort and quality of stay. Extremely well-stocked kitchen. Great access to all areas, freeways, and airport. A very convenient binder of information, with top attractions, nearby restaurants and conveniences, was a very nice touch. Highly recommended! Thank you, Helen.

Wonderful place to stay in N.E. Mesa

  • 5 of 5

What a great location - close to everything. Hiking and biking trails (we especially loved the Usery Mountain Park), golf courses and Saguaro Lake all close-by. Grocery stores, restaurants and banks are just a couple of minutes down the road. This house was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of dishes. Small but nice backyard with plenty of seating, flowers and lots of hummingbirds! The homeowner was extremely helpful and welcoming. Our party of 4 had great experience and we would highly recommend this property.
