Overview

Surprise House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath. Excellent location. Sleeps up to 6 adults.

SUPERBOWL COMES TO PHOENIX 2/1/15!!

Please contact owner directly if you are interested in renting during Super Bowl week, 1/27/15 - 2/1/15. The nightly rate for that week only is $350 per night, with a minimum of 3 nights. This site is not properly set to use the 'Book It' feature for those dates - please contact owner at 760-567-0254.

Please note: This property is a no-smoking & no-pets property.

We're excited to offer our charming 3 Bedroom get-away home for short-term rental. We've just given the home a fresh look with new paint throughout, new carpet, and new living room floor. We love coming out for our little get-aways and know you will too!

Kingswood Parke is one of the most beautiful and peaceful areas of Surprise. Surprise has everything you need for a get-away stay, including shopping, restaurants, and activities. Surprise Stadium is just over a mile from our place, and is home to the Royals and Rangers spring training. Nearby areas also boast of other baseball spring training fields, and of course sports complexes for the AZ Cardinals and PHX Suns. Various 'Sun City' locations are just minutes away.

In Surprise, you're close enough to venture out to Phoenix ... or you're self contained enough to stay close to home.

When you arrive to your get-away, you enter this two-story home into a large open living room with high cathedral ceiling. It flows into the dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is large, loaded with counter space and cabinets, and fully equipped. There is also a clothes washer and dryer in the laundry area off the kitchen.

The three bedrooms are all upstairs and can sleep six adults comfortably. The Master Bedroom has a firm cal-king bed, private bathroom with double sink and huge walk-in closet. It also has a sitting area that looks out over a school playground and beautiful park behind the house.

Bedroom 2 has a plush queen bed. Bedroom 3 is set as a relaxing area for watching movies (dvd & vhs equipped) or reading. It has a futon sofa that easily converts into a full-size bed.

The 2nd bathroom is in the upstairs hallway and serves Bedrooms 2 & 3. It has tub and shower. Downstairs, you'll find another half bath between the kitchen and the living room.

If additional sleep space is needed, we also have available an auto-inflate queen air mattress - but please note that the home really sleeps FIVE - SIX comfortably.

Just outside the back sliding door you'll find a large and inviting covered concrete patio complete with BBQ grill (we have both charcoal and propane grills) and a patio table set seating six. The yard is fully landscaped and adds greatly to the relaxing and peaceful retreat-like feel of the home. Some guests tell us they spend more time there than anywhere else! Since there are no homes directly behind ours, the backyard offers a good deal of privacy. We also have a concrete circle in the back and a portable fire pit for those cool evenings you want to unwind outside around a fire.

In the living room you'll find a large screen HDTV with cable/satellite programming. The master bedroom also has a 32' wall-mounted TV you can fall asleep to.

PLEASE NOTE: We have JUST one TV receiver that feeds both TV's so the programming is identical on both. You'll just need to make sure you have the receiver remote in whichever room you want to control the programming from.

There is also a fireplace in the living room which, due to regular PHX area 'do not burn' ordinances, we currently have set up as a decorative area. If you'd like to actually burn wood or presto logs, let us know and we'll need to confirm whether it's allowed at the time of your stay and if so, we'll include that in the contract.

This home has everything you'll need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in the Sunshine State.

Please note that this is a non-smoking and no-pets home. Also keep in mind that the bedrooms are all upstairs in the event you have limited mobility issues.

Thanks for checking out our home. We invite you to call or email with any questions.

About Michael 'Mick' Catron

Mick & Jan live in California and bought this home in 2011 as a 'get-away-when-we-can' place to unwind and relax, as well as a future likely retirement home.

Over the last year as we've come out to enjoy and spruce up the place, we have fallen in love with the area. We now have family and friends living in the general area and look forward to staying in Surprise when we can ... which isn't often enough! So in the meantime, we make the place available to you when we're not able to sneak away.

We usually run pretty hectic lives and wanted a tranquil place to unwind and get renewed. That's what this home has become for us.

Michael 'Mick' Catron purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael 'Mick' Catron chose Surprise

When we started looking for a 2nd home in the PHX area, we checked out several communities. Surprise immediately became our favorite because of it's great location. It's close enough to PHX, but far enough away to not feel like you're in a bustling city. After we bought, we found that Surprise was listed as one of the safest cities in the country. Another cool feature.

We looked at over 30 properties before we bought. This property, by far, was our favorite. We loved the general area, the incredible and well-kept beauty of the Kingswood Parke area specifically, and this home in particular. We still do!

What makes this house unique

The main factors that made this home our favorite are: location, tranquil and friendly neighborhood, no home behind ours, large and high living room with an open feel for spreading out or entertaining, BIG kitchen with lots of counter space and cabinets, beautiful and peaceful outdoor back patio and yard area.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
I echo my son Chris' review - my husband and I were so impressed with this lovely home! It was our first experience with VRBO's and I am sold. Such a warm and friendly place to share with my children and their families; my young grandson really had fun in the yard and the parks nearby. Loved the kitchen - anything we thought we needed was in this house. Just a short drive to Sun City West to visit my mom and brother and they enjoyed visiting with us in our temporary home. Mick, the owner, communicated such easy directions to my son that our late evening arrivals got us in the door without any problems. We really liked the door lock as opposed to getting a key so all 6 of us could come and go easily. Thanks so much Mick for allowing us the opportunity to share this lovely home with our family! Merry Christmas!

The Heritage House is the way to go!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the pleasure of spending the Thanksgiving holiday at the Heritage House in Surprise, and we could not have been happier. We were out visiting my Grandmother and the last thing I wanted to do was stay in a hotel. I have stayed in many VRBO's but the idea was a foreign concept for my parents, but after staying at the Heritage House they have seen the light!
The house is very inviting; from the open family room, to the large kitchen (we had 10 family members at the table) we were able to spend a lot of time together. The rooms were comfortable and they even removed a futon and put in a twin bed with a trundle to accommodate my brother and his son.
The yard was quite the bonus as well. I have spent a lot of time in the area since 1981 and was expecting rocks and cactus when I arrived, boy was I wrong. The artificial grass was very nice and it provided an excellent location for my yoga practice. Being right next to a park with a playground was also an added bonus, we used it to keep my 4 year old nephew occupied; of course by "occupied" I mean that we used it to wear him out.
I would absolutely, positively, without a doubt recommend this house for any travelers. There is not a single thing that the house did not have that we needed. This may even be the best VRBO I have stayed in; I just hope it is open for me the next time I need it.

Thanks Mick!

Spacious home in a beautiful location near Surprise Recreation Center.

  • 5 of 5
My family had a terrific month long vacation. The home was spacious, well suited and equipped for entertaining or just hanging out in the nicely landscaped backyard and patio. Mick sincerely wanted us to enjoy his home, and provided a tour of his home, explaining how everything worked from the thermostat to the ceiling fans. There was nothing we needed to buy but our food and drink. We has plenty of supplies.
The location in Surprise was in walking distance to a park where I took my grandkids and not far from Surprise Lake where I fished and watched the Rangers work out in Sring Training. I even attended a couple of games. The home became our base for sight seeing so many wonderful museums, Sedona, Scottsdale, and botanical gardens. We plan to go next year too.

Beautiful Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this beautiful home. It was so comfortable, clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed the incredible parks and ponds almost daily. We were in the middle of numerous golf courses and close to many activities, attractions and restaurants. We highly recommend The Outback. Surprise Stadium is so close and we enjoyed watching some baseball practices. The owners were awesome and so helpful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to our friends and relatives.

Our Favorite Rental Property in Surprise (or all of Phoenix area)

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this property! The first indication that this would be a great experience was the quick response time and friendly correspondence we received from Mick, the owner.

Upon arrival we were very impressed with how immaculate the house was in addition to being very warm and welcoming. There was even a basket with goodies personalized for us including area maps and attractions. The back yard was very private, pretty and relaxing. We spent a lot of time out there.

We were close enough to the Surprise stadium that we walked to the spring training baseball games each day!!

There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Our favorites were Mei Wei, Lilly's, New York Flavor and Fuzzys. Rosie's Italian Cafe in Sun City West is excellent (call for reservations) plus there were numerous delicious chain restaurants near by.

Shopping (for anything!) is close!

Our visit was great, we are already looking forward to next year!! Thanks Mick and Jan!!

A surprise in Surprise!

  • 4 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay at this property. The home & yard were clean & well-maintained. It was exactly as described. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen & bathrooms were stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very helpful with questions & concerns before our arrival. We easily found all shopping, dining, & entertainment in the area. The area mountains & parks were great for hiking & seeing the desert landscape. The location was great for access to anything north of the Phoenix area; i.e., Jerome, Sedona, Flagstaff, etc. We found a couple of really great restaurants in the area: Rio Mirage (Mexican) & The Irish Wolfhound (Irish Bar & Grill) in Surprise & very near the property. And the Yardhouse (American) in Glendale, right off the 101 & well-worth the drive.

This property would be our first choice if we were to return to Surprise. Thank you for a wonderful snowbird experience!!
