This beautiful four bedroom, two and a half bath home is part of a quiet, quaint and safe neighborhood, yet conveniently located near the community center and park. This newer home has had minimal use, leaving it in brand new condition.
The fabulous backyard is like having your own private resort... leaving you very litte reason to leave the property. Swim, Hot Tub, Sunbathe, play Grass Volleyball or Horseshoes, BBQ or just relax and read a book next to the Pool with the sounds of a waterfall soothing your day away. This home is truly unique to the area as it is one of the only homes in Anthem with a large grass area, with both a built in a pool and spa.
The home is completly furnished with modern furnishings. Each of the four bedrooms has a Queen size bed with fine linen and bedding. It is kid friendly, yet is set up for elegant entertaining as well. It has a very large backyard for the kids to play or for you to entertain.

This was my family's first experience with a vacation rental home and we were slightly apprehensive about what we'd find. We were more than satisfied with our stay in this lovely home. My husband and I, along with my daughter and 2 grandchildren fell in love with our vacation home away from home. The house was clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Shopping, family restaurants, cleaners and almost anything else you might think of was conveniently located within a miles radius. Having continuous access to our own private swimming pool made for great relaxation during the afternoons and evenings. Kevin was great and responded immediately to our questions and concerns. We were on a budget and this rental allowed all of us to enjoy beautiful accomodations for much less than we might have spent on hotel rooms. Access to I-17 made travel into and out of Phoenix and the surrounding areas simple and quick. What a wonderful experience! We'd certainly recommend this home to friends and relatives who plan to vacation in the area.

What a lovely home this is. The house was more than we expected. It was clean, well equipped and very nicely decorated. The shopping center, restaurants, golf course, etc. were conveniently located within walking distance. The swimming pool and Spa were in beautiful condition and made for wonderful refreshing plunges in the mornings and very relaxing afternoons and into the evenings. The kid safety features are excellent. You just need to take a few minutes when you 1st arrive to understand how they work, so you are not constantly setting them off accidently. The Master bedroom and bath are elegant and a perfect place to get away from the crowd. The Office has all the hookups necessary for high speed internet, Fax and printing. The freeway has easy access with many things to see in the area. We especially enjoyed Montezuma’s Castle and Well, 60 miles North on I-17. This was a wonderful vacation home for the whole family and Kevin was great to work with and honest and fair in all his dealings. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and relatives and be staying again in the future.
The listing is very accurate and the property is great. The house was large and provided lots of space for 6 people. The pool is beautiful and the yard is huge. Every morning the backyard was visited by several critters (bunnies, humming bird and a gecko)
One of the most positive parts of the whole experience was dealing with Kevin. He was fabulous, available and there if you needed to discuss anything. He provided great advice on keeping pool heat costs down. It was a pleasure!
Our family absolutely loves this rental home! This is our second time renting this amazing house. We first rented this house in 2009 and just rented again in July of 2013. Both times we stayed for a week and both times it was wonderful! We are a family of four, with our children 13 and 9, visiting Arizona from Illinois to see family. We entertained all week with family and it was truly fantastic! Adults and children alike will enjoy staying here! The home itself is beautiful. Spacious living areas; kitchen is large and great for entertaining (as well as stocked with so many convenient items). The open concept with the kitchen and family room is a huge plus in this home. The four bedrooms are great, with the master bedroom having a large bathroom with a soaking tub and glass shower, with a fantastic walk-in closet! The master bedroom is also away from the other bedrooms which gives great privacy (the other bedrooms are more private as well with their own hallway). There are many ways to entertain in this home; eat meals at the large kitchen table, sit up on the island for snacks for the kids; or use the beautiful dining room area for more formal dining. The home is actually more impressive once you are there, pictures do not do it justice! The pool area is phenomenal! The pool, water falls/spa are such a great feature of this home. The pool has a tanning/wading area that is great to just lie in or also wonderful for small children to play in (the pool umbrellas give you that needed break from the sun)! The pool floor is pebbled, which isn't an "average" type pool by any means. There is a basketball hoop as well in the pool! The spa is wonderful, we stayed in July so we did not use heat; but it was still amazing to sit in at night and watch the stars (which the view at night is incredible!) The outdoor furniture, pool umbrellas, grill, all are great! There is multiple seating choices outside! There is even a large outdoor dining table! Entertaining family in this home is a breeze. The grocery store and other conveniences are just a minute away! Easy access to I-17, making it very simple to go just about anywhere in the area! The good things about this home seem endless! Dealing with the owner, Kevin, was a pleasure! Very helpful with everything from start to finish (both times we stayed). I would recommend this rental to anyone (and I have !). Cannot wait to go back!!
This was our second time staying at this wonderful home in Anthem. Previously we stayed in June 2011. Kevin was great to work with each time. We have used VRBO several times and definitely prefer renting from home owners as opposed to companies- much easier to work with. Listing is accurate and owner has added another TV, more lounge chairs outside, table/chairs on patio.
Kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you will need. Recipe books, take out menu's, spices, extra batteries, etc. On our previous stay we had 6 people and the house was very comfortable and plenty of privacy. On this stay there was only 3 of us and we were just spoiled. House definitely feels like home. The pool is great. Tons of pool floats, balls, water guns and toys (kept in garage). Love that this year there were new lounge chairs and a table on the patio area. And the umbrellas. Love being able to use them near the chairs or in the pool. We loved having the backyard area for our 6 year old to run around. And the privacy of the house is amazing. There are never any neighbors outside. But with the tall walls all around it wouldn't matter if they were. And the lot size is huge so it doesn't matter. Starbucks, Safeway, CVS, Q to U BBQ, Wendy's, McDonalds, Taco Bell all just right around the block. We love Ocho Locos Mexican restaurant (right by Safeway). There are tons of restaurants right down the road at Carefree Hwy or Happy Valley Road- about 10-15 minutes away. The Outlets at Anthem and Walmart are just across I-17. Also, wanted to mention that Kevin has added a small TV in the Master bedroom. Our 6 yr old loved being able to go in there and watch a little TV before bed. The Living room with the big red chair/sofa is perfect for a little afternoon reading. I really like being able to park my car in the garage- especially in the AZ summer.
As the property is on the north side of PHX, it makes for a great day trip to Sedona. Honestly, the best thing to do is drive north of Sedona and hope on South bound 89A and drive into Sedona from the north. Incredible drive and scenery! Highly recommend. Wonderful Robert Trent Jones golf course in Village of Oak Creek, just south of Sedona.
Can't say enough nice things about the house and Kevin, the owner. We can't wait to go back and relax again next year.
From day one our experience with this rental was Awesome!
The owners were extremely accomadating and friendly, setting everything up for us was a breeze.
The photos of the home were exactly as expected when we arrived...the only exception being the kitchen, which was stocked with far more than we thought it would have available to us..Thanks for that it made life for the week very easy. This house is amazing in it's layout, perfect for a large family and having privacy in each corner of the house...even with a loud 3 yrs old.
We loved the fact that grocery stores and coffee shops were literally within walking distance or quick ride around the corner, yet we felt like we weren't close to anything at all...very quiet neighborhood indeed.
My family had a blast playing in the pool, the kids all loved it!
I totally recommend staying at this rental...my only complaint, not enough towels.
Thanks from the Hawaii Crew...we will come back and stay with you all again soon!
This home was perfect for our 2 week stay in Jan/Feb 2012. We were an extended family of seven, of all age groups from kids to seniors. The house had everything we needed in the kitchen and was spacious and well set up. The bedrooms were large and comfortable and the pool was great. Kevin was a great and organized host - always responded to our questions in a timely fashion. The pool was great, and we enjoyed the spa. The programmer for the pool was complex. We soon got used to the pool alarm on the back door! The only thing missing was a working vaccuum to tidy up, but I am sure Kevin has looked after that by now. The location of the property was great. Walking distance to Safeway. Safe and quiet neighborhood. We had a great time at this home and would absolutely stay here again if we needed a vacation home of this size. Sedona was beautiful and we had a great day trip to the Grand Canyon with Arizone Scenic Tours, also. Thanks.
