2nd Stay, Great house, Wonderful Pool
This was our second time staying at this wonderful home in Anthem. Previously we stayed in June 2011. Kevin was great to work with each time. We have used VRBO several times and definitely prefer renting from home owners as opposed to companies- much easier to work with. Listing is accurate and owner has added another TV, more lounge chairs outside, table/chairs on patio.
Kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you will need. Recipe books, take out menu's, spices, extra batteries, etc. On our previous stay we had 6 people and the house was very comfortable and plenty of privacy. On this stay there was only 3 of us and we were just spoiled. House definitely feels like home. The pool is great. Tons of pool floats, balls, water guns and toys (kept in garage). Love that this year there were new lounge chairs and a table on the patio area. And the umbrellas. Love being able to use them near the chairs or in the pool. We loved having the backyard area for our 6 year old to run around. And the privacy of the house is amazing. There are never any neighbors outside. But with the tall walls all around it wouldn't matter if they were. And the lot size is huge so it doesn't matter. Starbucks, Safeway, CVS, Q to U BBQ, Wendy's, McDonalds, Taco Bell all just right around the block. We love Ocho Locos Mexican restaurant (right by Safeway). There are tons of restaurants right down the road at Carefree Hwy or Happy Valley Road- about 10-15 minutes away. The Outlets at Anthem and Walmart are just across I-17. Also, wanted to mention that Kevin has added a small TV in the Master bedroom. Our 6 yr old loved being able to go in there and watch a little TV before bed. The Living room with the big red chair/sofa is perfect for a little afternoon reading. I really like being able to park my car in the garage- especially in the AZ summer.
As the property is on the north side of PHX, it makes for a great day trip to Sedona. Honestly, the best thing to do is drive north of Sedona and hope on South bound 89A and drive into Sedona from the north. Incredible drive and scenery! Highly recommend. Wonderful Robert Trent Jones golf course in Village of Oak Creek, just south of Sedona.
Can't say enough nice things about the house and Kevin, the owner. We can't wait to go back and relax again next year.
