We really felt at home. This house is placed in the northern part of the valley with easy access to the freeway. We went to Motezuma Castle, Tuzigoot National Monument, Sedona and the Grand Canyon all without fighting traffic through Phoenix. It was very clean, tidy, and was financially equivalent to renting 2 hotel rooms for a week, (which is what I was going to do for the 7 of us), but instead we had a full kitchen that was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook with including a barbecue and lots of space for quiet time. The pool with the waterfall and hot tub, the deck off the master suite, and boat dock with paddle boat gave all of us the perfect environment to reconnect as a family. The owners are very sweet people. They allowed us to check in early, introduced us to the home, asked if we had any questions, provided us with more than we needed and they even have a binder put together that tells you how everything runs/works(with pictures) and where restaurants and grocery stores are located. Then, they left us alone the entire week and told us to call them if we ran into any problems. This was my most perfect vacation yet.
