About Margaret Aho

We are not yet ready to retire but want to have a place to go to 'get away' to the warm sun when the Minnesota Winters get to us. We grew up in Minnesota and North Dakota but fell in love with Arizona on our first trip there. It is so different from where we currently live that we know we are on vacation when there.

Margaret Aho purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

We love this home. It is spacious yet comfortable for accommodating company. The house can accommodate special activities, holiday dinners with family and friends. The entertaining can easily transition to the back yard with the pool, fireplace and built in barbeque. The only thing we could add would be a fruit tree (or two!!) And if there is no other reason, the weather in Arizona is the best to get away from our Minnesota winters.

Comfortable And Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was as described. The owner was helpful and accommodating. The property was conveniently located, working well for our trip, which included day trips to Tucson, Casa Grande, Northern Phoenix and Sedona. I only have one caveat, although having a pool is a definite plus, the trade off is the nightly noise of the running pool equipment. In fairness, I am a light sleeper and the couple nights this bothered me I moved out of the master suite, to a quieter bedroom. I suspect this would be true of any home with a pool. Note the neighborhood is very quiet otherwise.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you had the opportunity to see so many sights while there as we are fortunate to be in a good location to do so. Sorry about the pool equipment, but you are correct, most pool equipment is set to run cleaning processes at night for energy savings and safety. Glad you were accommodated in another room.

Worth every penny!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a business conference in Phoenix, and we only had minimum time to enjoy this amazing house, and we did! The pool was set at 87 degrees, the kitchen was fully stocked with any and everything for the culinary expert down to the novice. We cooked, baked cakes, grilled outside, swam, and enjoyed friendly neighborhood every free moment we had. I woke up extra early just to hit the local hiking or jogging trail, before starting my day. We also, took a road trip to Red Rock, the desert, Sedona Falls, Grand Canyon, and many other places in between. Margaret was so friendly, helpful, she answered any questions, had brochures, and even a book dedicated to making our stay conventional and fun. The house was clean inside and out, pretty large rooms, extremely cozy with almost any amenity imaginable. My wife and our business partners were more than pleased. We will definitely go back!

Excellent Accommodation for Five Sister Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 sisters spent a week in this spacious four bedroom home in Queen Creek Arizona in January 2016. Now that we are all home in the cold and snow, we are thinking fondly of our stay in this house. It worked very well for our group and was well equipped inside and out. The heated pool was a highlight to some in our group and others were especially happy with how close the house was to the San Tan Mountain Park. We left a lot of footprints there and on the paths around the subdivision. Margaret was a wonderful "virtual" host throughout the inquiry and booking stages on VRBO as well as welcoming us and promptly answering some questions during our stay and check out. Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay in your Queen Creek Home!

Beautiful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I rented this beautiful rental the last week of January and first week of February. It was true to its pictures and we were very pleased with it.

Margaret was very good to work with and always kept us informed if a yardkeeper or pool attendent was stopping by, which we appreciated.

The backyard is absolutely beautiful with the pool and outdoor fireplace and it was great having coffee out front in the mornings, which we did so every morning.

The kithen was well stocked with top of the line cookware, utinsels and spices of all kinds.

Something very minor would be to move the plastic plates up because we spotted them 2 days before leaving on the bottom level of the cupboard and thought only glass plates were available for use.

The light switch for the dining room was taped down so we couldn't use and had wished we had more light, only to run across another switch accidently, clear across the room off of the kitchen, on the last day. Minor things but nice info to know.

It has a HUGE master bedroom and 3 nice size guestrooms.

Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation in your beautiful home. Its everything you said it was plus more!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I am glad to know that the house is represented on VRBO well so guests can be assured they won't have any surprises! We purchased the malmac dishes last year for the patio but didn't have room for them in the upper cabinet so put them below (right under the light switch for the dining room). I just thought everyone would be like me and check out all the cabinets upon arrival to see what you have to work with! Joking aside, we have tried to think of everything our guests will need for a great, worry free vacation!

This home exudes Southwest charm in a family friendly neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in San Tan Heights over Christmas and New Years, 2015. We were very impressed with the size of the rooms, and all of the furnishings that made it feel immediately like home. The owners have a binder with all of the information about the house, as well as local restaurants and attractions which was a very nice touch. It was very easy dealing with the owner, and everything was exactly as described when we arrived for our stay. We used the pool almost every day, even though the weather was a bit chilly. The barbecue, patio fireplace and sitting area made the outdoor living space functional and enjoyable. There was plenty of room for our two boys, and my parents who also stayed with us for the first week. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, pots, pans and every cooking utensil we needed so we were able to cook a full Christmas dinner. I can't think of anything that was missing that we had to buy during our 2 week stay aside from our own food and drinks. If I had one minor suggestion it would be to have some more regular fold-out chairs to use in the sunny, south-facing garage (especially in the winter time) but we were easily able to make do with a couple of the chairs from the back patio that we moved around to the front. This was our first experience using VRBO, and all-in-all, it was a very positive experience. We would definitely consider staying in this house again and would recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We try to keep the house equipped with everything needed to make your vacation comfortable and worry free. We will take the suggestion for chairs into consideration and will work on obtaining a comfy seating for the front. Actually, that was my goal on our last trip but I didn't make it happen. Next time for sure!!
