About Fran Titze

Kent and I are from Nebraska and are Husker Fans. Kent is a Horticulturalist and I am a Realtor with HomeSmart Realty. We own Horticultural Frontiers Landscape and Design in Phoenix. Kent has been in Phoenix since 1984 and I have since 2002. We knew each other in High School and reconnect at a class reunion and got married in 2003!

Fran Titze purchased this house in 2004

Why Fran Titze chose Phoenix

We bought our properties one at a time around 2004, the view made the decision easy and as the others became available we purchased them. Which was great as they are all one on top of the other. We also live on the mountain so it make everything very easy.

What makes this house unique

The Mirage we purchased first. We thought we could fix it up and sell or rent it but after doing so we fell in love with the house and the view and decided to do short term vacation rental. We loved the theme idea and so as we acquired each one we decided to not only have the decor match the theme but even the permanent fixtures! Everyone loves the houses, views and the themes. One of the benefits for us is when friends and family come to visit they have a nice place to stay. Also a benefit is we have made pretty good friends with a few of the people who come to visit every year. We have one person who will be coming for their 5th aniversary at Sunset Mountain. I love all four houses and can't decide which I like best. We have now finished The Parlor located directly beneath the Ranchero for a Studio rental. It is called The Parlor, upscale 1980's western!! You won't be disappointed with it!

Beautiful views of the mountains around you!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and I had 7 breath taking days at The Parlor. It was private, and perfect for the two of us! Hot tub over looking the mountains while you drink your coffee and get ready to explore Arizona. Jim and I were truly impressed with the decor and all the little touches the Parlor has! We will be back! Maybe by ourselves of maybe with company to enjoy the other larger homes you have for rent. Thank you so much for a beautiful, clean, friendly place to stay on vacation in Arizona! See you again soon!

Wedding Night stay- perfect cozy place.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding night! This property was so surprisingly affordable even during the time surrounding the Superbowl when everything was over priced in the area. The home was so cute and perfect for us, the hot tub was a nice touch and just one step outside our private front door. The owner is extremely personable, caring and responds quickly.

This is THE place to stay in Phoenix.

  • 5 of 5

The views from the Margarita Casita are spectacular. Fran and Kent were very gracious hosts and provided everything we needed for a wonderful mini-vacation. On New Year's Eve, we watched fireworks all around within a 180 degree range. We spent most of our time on the spacious deck and in the hot tub. The drive up to the Casita is memorable - steep switchbacks which made for an exciting entrance and exit! Logan's Roadhouse (recommended by Fran) was great - good food, good service, good price. We toured Taliesin which was interesting. Went up to Cave Creek for touristy shopping. But the best part of our visit to Phoenix was this lovely rustic casita - relaxing but with modern amenities.

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend & I stayed at Ken & Fran's "Parlor" for 4 nights & enjoyed it immensely! It is the smaller of their units; however, for the 2 of us it was perfect! Fran was very accommodating, delivering an iron to the property for us on one occasion & answered several questions that we had.

The Parlor has everything you need & the décor was amazing! My girlfriend, Anje, especially liked the electric lanterns. The view from the hot tub is awesome & it is very private considering one of their other properties sit directly above The Parlor.

There were no "hidden" surprises upon our arrival. All was as told it would be. We would highly recommend visiting Sedona! Also, if looking for a horseback ride, we really enjoyed MacDonald Ranch. It was fairly close by, reasonable rates, & the people were friendly. Ask for wrangler Jack if ya can. He was very nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely stay with Fran & Ken again if back in Phoenix!

A pleasure

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my business trip to Phoenix. Much more comfortable and scenic than a hotel. The drive downtown is fast and only about 15 minutes. The view is awesome and the porch gives the place a panoramic view. Fran was very easy to deal with and accommodating. Thanks!

Exceeded My Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I had never stayed in this part of Phoenix before but had a pleasant surprise. The casita was decorated with a number of creative touches and the owners clearly take pride in their little homes. The views were spectacular and the owners bent over backwards to make my stay as enjoyable as it could be. It was a great experience, with a good value and I will definitely return next year.

Car: recommended

We are located on the northern edge of Phoenix approximately 1/2 mile from 101 and Cave Creek Road. Close to several lakes, minutes from Mayo Clinic. The Casita sits back from any traffic and high above road noise and city sounds yet moments from escaping the urban life to Lake Pleasant and Saguaro Lake. We are located upon a Saguaro populated mountain with several desert wildlife. Fox, coyote, roadrunners, quail, javelina and several birds. A reasonable drive to Sedona and the Grand Canyon.

Golf: Golf in every direction. From expensive to very reasonable.
