About Pattie Gibson, Owner

I love to travel and have used others seasonal rentals with success and much enjoyment. I've tried to provide in the coziness and relaxation of my Mesa condo an experience that I would want to have 'if I were the guest'.

I am a business and computer teacher (all levels--high school, community college, and university), have owned my own computer consulting company and am a seasoned textbook author of seven books.

I currently live in the Denver area (during non-snowy times) and in Mesa (during non-too hot times) with my husband, Ric, who is also a professor and I have two grown kids (and two great grandkids!)--all of whom make me very proud of their individual uniqueness and zest for life.

Pattie Gibson, Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why Pattie Gibson, Owner chose Mesa

I bought this property in 2000 and have used it personally for my two kids when they went to ASU and for myself during especially busy times in my life and after life events that turned my world around.

I have always felt peace upon entering the condo. It's small enough to be intimate; yet, big enough to have guests and friends over and fun times. I love it and feel good to be able to share it with those of like mind. I want my guests to really enjoy their stay and have a great time in the Valley of the Sun.

What makes this condo unique

An easy walk and less than 3 blocks from the New Chicago Cubs Spring Training Complex in Mesa's beautiful Riverview Park. No parking problems. The Riverview Park is a popular, yet local, Water Park,with water play areas and the very popular 'Rope Tower'. Walking paths are abundant for strollers or the exercise enthusiasts!

LOVED our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of four! It was clean and tastefully decorated and it had all the essentials to provide our family with a much needed vacation. The covered parking was so nice to keep the car cool. The pool was close and often we were the only ones there. The Mesa Riverview Park is a few blocks away and our 13 and 15 year old kids LOVED it - there were structures at the park for the young and old alike. There is a mall right across the street from the park with Walmart for all your grocery needs and a theater for your entertainment. The Phoenix Zoo was a 10 minute drive away which our family loved as well. Patty was amazing and was very accessible for any and all needs that we had. We look forward to staying here again!!!

Absolutely lovely rental

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property that had everything we could need and felt it was very welcoming and clean. We used this as our base for visiting family in the area. Car parking space was very convenient and close by the propriety, it also had a pool and hot tub which we did not use as we were just too busy exploring the area, but the surrounding grounds are very well maintained and clean.

Would like to thank the owner who was very helpful if I needed anything and was easy to contact, I would definitely recommend this property.

Central location... Cubby's fan dream

  • 4 of 5

Condo location centrally located literally on the Mesa/ Tempe border was the perfect location for a family vacation. The condo is a well maintained, comfortable home base for your Phoenix vacation. Approximately 3 blocks from the new Chicago Cubs spring training facility, the Condo has easy access to both Hwys 101 & 202. Complex has a unheated swimming pool- too cold for a Feb. swim - and hot tub. No onsite gym but a couple blocks away at the Riverside mall you'll find a full service commercial gym. Shopping and golf close by, loved Papago park - about 15 minutes away just north of ASU.

Owner's Response: I truly appreciate the time you took to review your stay in my Mesa Condo. Your review certainly captured the essence of why the location and accommodations of the home work for Canadian and Mid-Western visitors to the Valley. Again, thank you!
