Awesome Home, Awesome Experience, Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Casa Stephens, and I wanted to let everybody know what an incredible home and incredible experience we enjoyed.

This was our first experience renting a vacation home, and I can't imagine how it could have been any better. First off, I want to thank Michael again for putting up with my barrage of emails and questions. I asked everything from if there's a coffee maker in the house to if we needed to bring our own towels. Michael couldn't have been more patient with me and not only did he answer all my questions, but EVERYTHING I wanted to know about... was part of the home.

The kitchen had every appliance and dish two families could possibly need, plus it was huge with plenty of room to hang out and eat around the island or sit at the table.

The living room was sooo comfortable to lounge around with a great flat screen tv on the wall and awesome sound system when we just wanted some music.

We were in town for a kids baseball tournament, so one of my favorite features was the washer and dryer. And before you ask (as I did) the house came with detergent, fabric softener and even stain remover. This was truly a home away from home. All the comforts of our home without the snow and with a pool... OH... I haven't even mentioned the pool!!! There's a great pool in the backyard perfect for kids to play in or for adults to hang out in. And make sure to bring your "A-game" for the basketball hoop in the pool.

And if you want to grill like we did, there's not just some grill... how bout a Trager smoker!!! Best burger and chicken I've had in a long time.

Back inside now, the master bedroom was HUGE and the bathroom and closet even bigger. That was the worst part of going back home. I miss that room already. And the rest of the rooms in the house were spacious and nice as well, but our room was the best :).

Obviously I can't say enough about how much we loved our stay and what a great host Michael and his family were.

If you're planning a trip out to the Phoenix area, and want a little privacy and just the right amount of luxury, this is the place for you.

Michael... thanks again for making our trip so perfect. We can't wait to come "home" again soon.

Prefer closer to spring training

  • 3 of 5

Property was clean very homey. Pool was ice cold needs a solar cover. Property is long distance from ball parks and gateway airport.

Owner's Response: Our home is 15-20 minutes away from Royals, Rangers, Mariners, and Padres. All other stadiums are further out. House is also 45 minute drive from Sky Harbor airport. Not sure what gateway airport is. Never claimed to be close to the airport and it is listed in our page how far away we are from those specific teams. The pool is typically cold around this time of year. Solar cover wouldn't have made a big difference. Not sure i agree with 3/5 stars, especially when you knew about ALL of things you're complaining about in advance.

Beautiful, clean, and well decorated home with all the amentities needed for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great, just enough contact to let us know that that if they could do anything for us to let us know. Super cute house, and the furniture and appliances look brand new. The neighborhood was quiet, which we liked. We didn't use the pool, but it was clean as well. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks for a very upscale relaxing week!

The house was very clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed to enjoy several meals.

Mr. Stephens and his wife were very accommodating to our needs. The home was very nice in a nice neighborhood and within a few miles of two grocery stores, which came in very handy.

I would give two thumbs up for their attention to our small group of people as Mr. Stephens made himself available to any of our request. In the future, I would not hesitate to recommend this home and it's owners as a great combination for a great vacation in the Phoenix area. If you are a baseball fan, then you are in close proximity to the winter training grounds for many of the major league teams.I would also say the attention given to us would be very close to having your own concierge during your stay. I do not think anyone would be disappointed.
