Where do you start to describe a perfect holiday in a super VRBO home rental with the best host you could find anywhere ??! ! It's difficult but we'll try. After a number of visits to the Phoenix area, we decided this year to include some family members, including 3 granddaughters (twins aged 7 & their younger sister aged 5). We found Nancy's home in Mesa & booked it for 3 weeks. Upon our arrival, it was like meeting an old friend in Nancy as we'd emailed & chatted on the phone during the booking process. This warm welcome was followed by an in-depth tour of the spotless home & all the facilities - coming from Canada, we're not used to heating pools & spas so Nancy's time & expertise were very much appreciated.
The house fit our group of 6 adults & 3 children very well & we all enjoyed the very comfortable beds in every bedroom. We couldn't stump Nancy in the kitchen as the cupboards were stocked with every appliance you could ever need! It was a bonus that the fridge contained ketchup, mustard, jam etc. & the spice selection was better then mine at home. Add to that the drawer full of foil, saran wrap, serviettes, baggies, etc. - always useful items when cooking at home. We were encouraged to use whatever we needed and we replaced anything that we finished. So nice not to have to start with bare cupboards and buy absolutely everything. Also, the laundry area was much appreciated and fully stocked with detergent & fabric softner. The supply of more than ample towels, wash clothes and, in particular, a dozen or more large pool towels, was icing on the cake.
Now out to the backyard . . . pure heaven! The pool and spa were sparkling clean, heated and very inviting with the waterfall trickling down into the pool. Needless to say, our little girls "lived" in the pool as the temperatures were higher than normal and just what we needed for spring break from Canada! The outdoor BBQ area, including a small fridge, was the scene of many great meals & happy times.
My sister has already booked Nancy's home for a month in the fall to enjoy with some girlfriends to celebrate all their 65th birthdays this year! My 86-year-old mom said it was one of the most relaxing vacations she'd ever enjoyed! During our stay, we babysat the girls while our daughter & son-in-law flew to Las Vegas for a short break - from the Mesa Gateway airport which was 10 minutes away - perfect!
Our family can't thank Nancy enough for EVERYTHING - we'll never forget this wonderful holiday!
