About Mary and Bill

Bill and I have been married 35 years. We have started our new adventure with this vacation home and retirement. We have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. We have spent the last 32 years in Seattle, WA area but we are originally from CA. We are spending some time in CA and WA now and some time in AZ. We enjoy any form of water, ocean, rivers, lakes and our saltwater pool. We also like to bicycle and bike (motorcycle) ride. We love being outside walking and enjoying nature.

Mary and Bill purchased this house in 2012

Why Mary and Bill chose Surprise

The backyard had the "WOW" factor.

What makes this house unique

When we were looking for our vacation property in Surprise we fell in love with this backyard. Built in gas BBQ with bar seating, tiki hut with seating as well as shaded patio seating with great pool including seats under the waterfall. We have added our touches to the house and yard and feel it is truly a paradise in the desert.

Guestbook comments from the owner



Relaxing and convieniant retreat

January 6, 2014

We were very pleased with Bill & Mary's home, very well kept and the back yard resort was to die for. It was to chilly out to use the pool but other then that it was a great stay.

Owner's reply:

Hi Sheila,

It was really nice meeting you and Daryl and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay but sorry the weather wasn't warm enough to feel like swimming. We hope that you get a chance to come back and swim. :-)

Keep Smiling,

Mary and Bill

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful experience renting this house. Super comfortable with a fabulous back yard, complete with pool, waterfall, sitting areas and BBQ. The house was spotless, spacious and stocked full of nice surprises....such as some starter chips and salsa and Lindt chocolates! Thanks, Mary and Bill - wonderful to do business with you!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay. We spent all our time in the fantastic backyard. Words can not describe the peaceful relaxing long weekend we spent here. My daughter and grand-daughter are already asking when we can stay again. Thank you Mary!

One Away

  • 5 of 5

We are huge NFL fans, and do one away game each year, this year we chose Phoenix. There were 3 couples traveling together, we stayed at this house for 4 days, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were welcomed with a basket of snacks and each bedroom had bottled water. We spent a portion of each day in the pool, and each night around the fire pit. We had all the amenities of home, including a fully stocked kitchen with everything we needed. If there is one thing I would have liked to have, it would have been a dresser in the two smaller bedrooms. I would highly recommend this property, and will definitely stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Larry for the nice review and especially for taking the time to do it. I appreciate your input on needing more drawers in the 2 smaller rooms and I will look into it. Thank you and your party for choosing our vacation home for your NFL away game of the year and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Mary and Bill

Perfect Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here, thanks to Bill and Mary. They greeted us when we arrived to show us everything we needed to know about the house, from how to heat the pool to how to turn on the TV. They were also kind enough to leave a bottle of wine and snacks, which went over well after a long travel day.

We spent most of our time in the fantastic backyard, which has a beautiful pool and waterfall, tiki hut, barbeque, lounge chairs, fire pit, and shaded seating area. It is even better in real life than it is in the pictures!

The home itself had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and appliances. Bathrooms had soap, shampoo, and hair dryers. Bedrooms were comfortable and had spacious closets and drawers so that we could unpack our suitcases and make ourselves at home for the week. The home also included cable TV, Netflix access, and wifi, which came in handy when it got cool at night.

Overall, this home was the perfect place for us to get away and relax. Bill and Mary were delightful to work with and we definitely hope to return soon!

Winter in the "Islands"!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful months in this beautiful "island themed" home. First of all let me say, if the pictures appeal to you then you certainly won't be disappointed! It's all that and more. Bill and Mary met us with chips and "an adult beverage" which we enjoyed as we got to know them and get the information on the home. They have excellent instruction on TVs (without grandkids we were concerned) pool and anything else we may need. We had plans to golf a lot and take some day trips and ended up spending most of our time at the beautiful pool! We had some family and friends come for a short time and no one wanted to leave! The back yard is so perfect for entertaining with plenty of seating and ambience! My only warning is MAKE SURE you dry your feet before you go in! I took a bad spill on my head which could have been terrible not to mention ruin my trip. Mary and Bill also made sure the weather was above normal for our enjoyment. The beds were great and we each had a recliner to relax in when we were through relaxing in the yard, Key word relax is what this time was all about. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

A wonderful place to enjoy when you choose to stay in Surprise, Arizona. A perfect home for a girls week.

The home was beautiful and the pool, the outdoor living space was perfect. The owners met us at the door and showed us through the house which included wonderful surprise gifts. Well equipped home with everything we needed. We hope to return next year.
