Welcome! Välkommen! Aloha! Bienvenido! Benvenuto! Willkommen! Bienvenue!
This beautiful jewel of a home is ready for you and your family to enjoy. It serves the needs of all who visit. Many who come want to be close to family without staying in their home, some attend weddings, graduations & funerals, while others welcome new babies into their families. Others come for family or class reunions, and others for baptisms, confirmations or other faith-based events. Some come when their family or they have special hospital stays (Mayo, Cancer Treatment Centers of America & others). There are business people who also stay when in town for meetings, conventions and trainings.
We accommodate vacationers with a wide variety of interests. You'll be close to many sporting & entertainment venues, including spring training games, concerts, NASCAR, NFL Cardinals football, NHL Coyotes hockey, NBA Suns basketball, MLB Diamondbacks baseball, golf courses galore, Lake Pleasant recreation area, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, outlets shopping, car shows, theatre, equestrian expos, snow skiing, pageants and lots more.
Whether its getting away from the snow & cold weather back home, for a lover's getaway, a family excursion, or a visit to family or friends, this jewel will serve you well.
You will find tucked inside this gem 3 bedrooms, plus a den (equipped with computer & printer/scanner), 2 1/2 baths, living, family & dining rooms, full-service kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances (dishwasher, convection microwave, oven, side-by-side refrigerator). The owner's suite is well-appointed with a plush queen bed, while the other two bedrooms have another cozy queen bed, and twin/full bunk beds, respectively. An extra queen size Aero-Bed with headboard is also available with bedding (sleeps 2 more). All water in the home is deliciously filtered, including showers and faucets, and the 50 gallon gas hot water heater will provide plenty for the whole family to shower and bathe. Front-load clothes washer & dryer are also available, so you won't need to run to a laundromat when visiting for an extended stay. You will always be comfortable in the cool air conditioning in the summer months moved by ceiling fans throughout, and warm, cozy heating in the winter months.
For your entertainment while visiting, we've provided our ebony baby grand piano, two 40' LCD TVs with cable TV access, high-speed WiFi internet access, relaxing fenced swimming pool (not heated) next to the large covered patio, fish pond with waterfall and live goldfish, large tropical grassy play area for throwing a ball or sunbathing, man & woman's Trek 18-speed road bikes, plus board games and toys for the kids and those 'young at heart' to enjoy. The resident pet, Sydney, a box turtle may also show herself during your stay, but don't worry about feeding her or the goldfish - we've got that covered too! They're just here for your enjoyment.
If you plan to rent a car, you'll also enjoy having a 2-car garage, plus driveway parking for 2 more cars, to safely park your autos off the street.
Our Sierra Verde at Arrowhead Ranch community includes lakes, biking & walking paths, a city park & other small parks with jungle gyms, swings, sand volleyball courts & basketball courts. There are green belts for throwing a Frisbee or playing a game of flag football. You will not get bored when staying here, but if that's not your plan, just snuggle in for a quiet, relaxing movie or lounge by the pool with the waterfall lulling you to sleep.
This is truly your 'HomeAway' from home. It is an excellent option from otherwise staying in a cramped, tiny hotel room. Plus, when compared to a standard or extended stay hotel, there is no comparison to value, amenities and overall enjoyment for the price.
Come visit our 'Jewel of the Desert'. Stay a week, a month or longer. We'll be sure to leave the light on for you!

Hello friends, My name is Edward Maznio. My wife and family and I have enjoyed this beautiful home for over 13 years. We built the home in the year 2000 and have watched our children grow up here. This home has seen many play & swim parties for our little ones, celebrations of important birthdays and anniversaries, and was the home we welcomed our two adopted baby boys into.
If the walls could talk, you would hear 3 charming little children learning to play the piano, hours of homework over the kitchen table, and gourmet holiday meals shared with family & friends.
We have made this a home, not simply a house. It has been a place to raise and teach our children, and a place we enjoy calling our home. When you walk through the doors, we are confident you will feel the beautiful spirit that dwells here. We welcome you to make it your 'HomeAway' from home.
Our family is allergic to cats and some dogs, so we've not had either. We are also non-smoking, so we appreciate you keeping it that way too. Come and enjoy a safe, clean, comfortable place to stay, where you can enjoy yourselves.
Edward Maznio purchased this house in 2000
We chose Glendale because of its rich beauty at the foot of the Thunderbird Mountain Preserve. We love the variety of amenities and activities available to see and attend. Ultimately, it became our home because it's a great place for raising a family and enjoying the outdoors.
You will fall in love with the two story floor plan of this gem. The unique, winding staircase that leads upstairs is naturally lit by a large overhead skylight. The rooms are perfectly sized and decorated for your quiet comfort. The home is large enough that you will never feel crowded, but small enough that you won't feel alone. Come visit our little 'Jewel of the Desert' that is non-smoking, hypo-allergenic and kid-friendly.
Edward, your home was beautiful and my kids and I enjoyed it so much. It was a great stay. Thanks!
This home is exactly as pictured. The home was beautiful and spacious, neighborhood quiet and pool was wonderful. The six of us had plenty of room and everything we needed. Plenty of pans and dishes in the kitchen. Stores close by. Very relaxing. Will definitely stay here again if in the area. Edward was very helpful and answered all of my questions.
This home is EXACTLY as you see! Nicely appointed furnishing and decor with a wonderful relaxing pool. During this time of year the pool temp is perfect (no heating required). Added bonus was the hummingbird nest with (2) babies. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Our whole family of 8 enjoyed our vacation in this lovely and spacious home. Plenty of space to sit and have family meals, and plenty of beds for a peaceful night's sleep! Thank you for providing cleaning supplies and spices. It really felt like home. The neighborhood was peaceful and had a great central location. Thank you Edward for keeping such a lovely home affordable so we could visit with grandma! We will definately rent from you again!
Wonderful house in a peaceful neighborhood. It was close to grocery stores and restaurant options. Fit our needs perfectly. Thanks!
Our family of 6 stayed here in January 2014 and found it spacious, comfortable, and convenient. The house was well-equipped and clean and we had room to spread out and enjoy some down time on our vacation. The owner worked with us on our particular arrangements and checked in during our vacation to make sure we had everything we needed. Well done and we recommend this lodging on any day of the week!
Wonderful vacation! The home is well maintained and located in a very accessible area. We did not spend alot of time at the home but we were all very comfortable when we did! This is the home for someone with small children. My nephews discovered "the closet" and we didn't hear from them until the stay was over :) It was perfect for them to play outside with no fear of falling in the pool. Very family organized home! The piano also proved to be useful as it became the channel for every adult to try and play "Heart & Soul" at every opportunity!
There were few downs to the stay which can be alleviated with minor fixes. 1) It was cold! The ceilings were high so the heat had a hard time reaching the main level. We recommend a few more thicker blankets especially during winter :) 2) There is no coffee maker in the residence. We asked the caretaker and he stated it was because it is a Morman home. So be advised that you will need to go get your own coffee in the mornings. Dunkin Donuts was always a lifesaver and five mins away. 3) The teenagers wanted more channels on the TV. On days where they tried their best to block us out they couldn't find enough channnels to keep them happy. 4) The computer was inaccessible. It wasn't a huge issue. We had our laptop. Just ask before you come so it will be ready :) 5) Pool is not heated and yes unless you "Polar Plunge" it is very cold! My son's took one dip but that was all. A pool heater would be divine :) All in all the home was beautiful. Probably one of the nicest neighborhoods too :) It is definately a place to stay :) Thank you Edward for the experience for my children and nephews! We still do apologize for the inconvienience of the accident we incurred while moving the bed. Blessings to all ....
