About Stella & Alan Ginsberg

We have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1986 when we relocated from New York for Alan's job. He is the general manager of a lighting wholesale company.

I am a 'stay-at-home daughter,' and have been my mother's caregiver since 2008.

We have two beautiful adult daughters, Melissa & Jennifer, who often travel with us. The youngest still lives at home and will be applying to grad schools. Alan and I will be married 34 years in August!

UPDATE: APRIL 2015

It has been 3 years since we bought the house. Our guests have been wonderful. They have enjoyed their stay in our home and taken very good care of it. The experience has been very rewarding. We continue to add items, some folks have done so too and we appreciate it. We have also made some improvements such as painting, refinishing the patio floor and the upstairs balcony.

On a more personal note, Alan and I will be married 37 years in August! Our oldest daughter, Melissa, got married July 2013. The youngest, Jennifer, is now in DPT school. She is on her first internship at a hospital in Las Vegas. We just visited her last weekend.

Stella & Alan Ginsberg purchased this house in 2012

Why Stella & Alan Ginsberg chose Mesa

We have friends in the area (Chandler, Gilbert, Peoria), and have been visiting frequently. It's both a short plane ride, and a driveable distance from our home in California.

We just purchased this home in March 2012, and went back to get it ready. We were surrounded by handymen, installers and painters for a week, and had to do a lot of shopping. It was tiring but also lots of fun.

We are thinking of eventually retiring here. In the meantime, we will use the home as a vacation home. When we're not enjoying it, we would like to make it available for others to enjoy as if they were at home.

What makes this house unique

We love the desert landscape, the beautiful weather, the views of Superstition Mountains and the fact that spring training is nearby. There are also lots of golf courses, shopping and nature. The neighborhood has a children's (tot) playground, walking trails, and a park with picnic area, basketball courts, and large playground. It is close to the 202 and 60 freeways.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On a recent visit to check things out at the house, I found a sweet little note written by a child. It was in the nightstand of the twin room. There were young children staying in April and in May, so I am not sure who left it, but I wanted to share it. It says:



Have fun here.

It is awesome.



Thank you, whoever wrote the note. We are glad you thought our home was awesome. Hope you had a lot of fun!

Please come back again! Stella & Alan

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home. I rented the house for 6 adults who traveled from the East Coast to celebrate the marriage of my granddaughter. The home was beautiful, clean and extremely well equipped. Those who stayed at the home, as well as those who just stopped by, were equally impressed. The beauty of the area has convinced some of the young bridesmaids that they need to move to AZ! Of course, the pool was a definite plus! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone traveling to the Mesa area. The owners are attentive and very personable. It was the perfect setting with plenty of room for pre and post wedding arrangements!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Kathleen. We're pleased that our home was the setting for the pre and post wedding festivities, and that you made beautiful memories there. Congratulations again on your granddaughter's wedding. We wish her and her husband a lifetime of happiness. We hope to have you back next time you're in the area visiting family.

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank you so much for letting us share your wonderful home.

We had a fantastic and relaxing time in Mesa. The weather, the views of the mountains and surrounding area was everything we could have hoped for. The house was very clean, homely and the pool and garden area was more than welcome during the wonderful warm weather that we had. Everything you could have needed was available. We would definately recommend this home to others. The location suited us as our son was only a 10 min drive away. We were close to shops and within a 30 minute drive we were at the Lakes or mountains or direct into Phoenix. We would definately stay here again.

Thanks again to Stella and Alan and for letting us stay an extra couple of hours before our flight. This really helped us out. Great communication.

Owner's Response: You are very welcome, Angie & Seamus. It was a pleasure having you. You're our first guests from across the pond! We're so glad you had such a great time, you had all the essentials you needed, and everything was within an easy drive. No problem letting you stay longer. We can usually accommodate early check-in or late check-out requests as long as we don't have back-to-back guests and we know in advance so we can reschedule the cleaning service. Thank you so much for the great review and for recommending our home. We hope you will come back again. You were wonderful guests. Best regards, Stella & Alan

A little poem

  • 5 of 5

Searching for a place to rent, the summer of Oh Twelve

The pictures that I saw online, as far as I could tell

Were perfect for the four of us, my sister and her mate

But could we all survive the stay or cause us all to hate

The pictures didn't do the job, of showing all we'd have

We had the room to separate if one of us got mad

The property was spic and span and Vickie was the reason

The place was stocked with EVERYTHING and we enjoyed the season

When we broke a thing or two we wondered who to call

1-800 Michael was the man to fix it all

And then there are the Ginsbergs, the best that you will find

Fulfilling every need you have they are so very kind

So if you want a place to rent that really has it covered

Just call the number on this site, you'll love what you'll discover

There is one word of caution and please don't be mistaken

From January into March this rental will be taken

We love this place like it was home and we are so so pleased

And we'll be back for years to come, the SnowBirds of E. Capri

Owner's Response: Wow! Bob, you're a poet! What a lovely surprise for a review. Thank you so much. I have forwarded it to Vicki from our cleaning service and Michael, our pool, preventive maitenance and fix-it guy. They are part of the team that keeps things running smoothly, and we're so grateful to have them. The guests who came right after you had trouble getting on the WiFi, and then Marge told me you guys had some trouble but got it to work. We called Century Link, and they ran a diagnostic. It turns out the router/WiFi unit gave out. They got one to us by the next day, and our guest, Mark, installed it. It is now running great. As always, it was a pleasure having you, Ruth, Marge and Eric as our guests. We know that you will treat our home as you would treat yours, and we're happy that you consider it your home away from home. I have you on the calendar from January 9-March 19, 2016. Take care our Snowbird friends! Regards, Stella & Alan

FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so wonderful. We were in Mesa for our sons wedding and it was so nice to have the space to relax and enjoy in. Our kids LOVED the pool and there was pool toys there for them to play with. Having a washer and dryer meant we didn't have to take so many clothes which was great! Plenty of bed space and a TV in each room. We liked that because our early rise little girls could just watch TV and let us sleep until a normal hour. There is also movies and a gaming system that my teenagers enjoyed. The owner is VERY easy to work with and contact. I really appreciated that. The price was great also. Definitely a place we would stay in over and over again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Becky. We're happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home. Glad the kids were kept entertained. We're always trying to add more items that we think our guests will enjoy. We are actually at the house now. We met friends from NY here, and we're showing them the beautiful area. Alan and our friend Bill put up two ceiling fans on the patio ceiling. That surely helps cool things down a bit. We hope that you will come back again the next time you're in the area. Best regards, Stella & Alan
