About Jim and Jan Paulsen

Spring Training baseball, the Cubs, that is what started it all! We fell in love with the Mesa area. From Montana, looking forward to retirement, we started 'the plan' and it included purchasing this beautiful home near the mountains in AZ. We need a home this large to welcome our 3 adult children and 10 grandchildren on occasion. We are delighted to share our home with vacationers until we are able to use it more often.

Jim and Jan Paulsen purchased this house in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

In an e-mail Gail said, "everything is great here, already considering a return trip next year. The evenings are especially beautiful outside. We were very comfortable in this home, great place to rent".

Very Impressive

  • 5 of 5

I was overwhelmed to think someone could own such a nice house and be willing

to rent it to unknown people!

Coming from the snow and cold of Rapid City, SD we Loved the green grass and flowers in the back yard. I have a girlfriend and her husband who go to Mesa for 6 months each year. They came over to visit they were impressed as well. She said that backyard with that grass is almost unheard of in that area.

The location was ideal being so close to everything we wanted to see and do. The house was furnished with anything we could need, we felt very much at home.

I wish we could have stayed longer than a week. Should we come that way again we will contact you first to learn if the house is available. Thanks So Much!

Perfect for a family!

  • 4 of 5

This was a especially perfect for us because of location. We were close to family. Renting this perfectly furnished house versus staying in a hotel was smarter. With kids it's always better to have some meals at home. Beds were extremely comfortable and the pool was a huge hit with the kids. Great stay!!

Comfortable, well equipped, attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The owners go out of their way to ensure that you don't need to go out and get incidentals that you will just have to leave behind anyway. There is a philosophy that you treat it as you would your own home, and that hopefully ensures that you appreciate all that is there for you during your stay! We like this kind of accommodation while we are traveling! It was so easy!

The communication with the owners was prompt and seamless. Always helpful and congenial. Highly recommended!

A delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We should start by saying that this was our first trip to Arizona and our first time renting a home. This home is located in a nice gated community. We felt secure and comfortable. The location worked well to access the greater Phoenix area. All types of amenities were within a two minute drive of the home. The home was clean and comfortable and met (or exceeded) all of our expectations. It contained all the essentials that we needed to enjoy our stay and was extremely well organized with instructions and notes on where to find items and how to use them.

The beds and furniture in this home are very comfortable. Our children absolutely loved the heated pool. The outdoor area was nicely furnished and a great place to barbeque, relax and enjoy the sun!

The owners of this home were very helpful in answering questions and providing information. Their communication with us was exceptional from the moment we inquired about renting the property all the way through to the moment that our damage deposit was returned.

If ever in the Phoenix area again, we would definitely consider renting this home again and we would absolutely recommend it to any other families who are planning a stay in the area.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this beautiful and very spacious home! The community is gorgeous and has walking paths throughout. The house was stocked with all essential items we needed for our stay and more! We were extremely impressed with the organization of the home. Each cupboard had a picture on the knob of the items in the cupboard, which made things easy to find. Every switch in the home was labeled with what it turned on or off.

The owners were more than accommodating to our schedule that included very odd flight times. They were also very quick to respond to any questions that we had and even spent time on the phone with us when we had questions about the pool.

Being first time renters on VRBO we were a little hesitant about renting but this home and its owners exceeded all of our expectations and we look forward to renting this property again!
