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

Great family home in a nice quiet, safe neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Two families of four stayed very comfortably here. Lots of room for everyone to spread out. The rooms were large and all the beds very comfortable. There were plenty of basic cooking items and toiletries to use which was greatly appreciated. Just replace as needed. The backyard is very big with plenty of grass for kids to run around and play. We loved that the pool was gated so we didn't have to worry about toddlers running around. Pool was kept at a very comfortable 85 degrees and the kids (and adults) loved it. Home is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, towels, etc. The location is a nice quiet gated community. For families looking for a home to relax and enjoy the weather, this home is great. We would certainly book again and recommend the home to others. Thanks for a great holiday!

Really happy with our holiday

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we walked in, the house felt like home. It was tastefully decorated, the beds were comfortable & we loved the heated pool in the back yard. It was a family holiday with both our daughters, their husbands and our 2 granddaughters visiting us. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much & the house was very comfortable. The owners have thought of the comfort of their guests & it shows. Thanks Jan & Jim for a great holiday! We'll want to come back.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time at this home. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and the spacious backyard was a nice surprise. The owners aren't local but that wasn't a problem at all. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. It is fully stocked, however, we ended up buying our own supplies like toilet paper, paper towels and sponges as the ones there were not great. But that is completely understandable for a rental and buying these items in bulk. Our stay was during the summer and our children loved swimming in the pool every day. It had a secure fence surrounding it which made us feel very safe when our little ones were outside and not swimming. The house does not have cable set up but we knew that going in and brought our own device to watch. We visit AZ often and would be happy to stay at this property again. Actually we were hoping to rent again for Thanksgiving but some other lucky family got to it first!

Fun and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to relax and the pool is perfect! Just know that a car is essential as Uber is scarce and cabs are expensive.

Owner's Response: So glad to know you enjoyed the private back yard. The grass yard and pool make it easy to just want to hang around and relax. Jim and Jan.
