The Perfect Rental House
I can't begin to describe how perfect this house was as a home base for my son's baseball tournament. The house is in a great little neighborhood with every backyard on a lake...has its own dock and paddle boat (with bass biting in the mornings & evenings), and a perfectly sized pool for cooling off. That was important to us, because we were there at the peak of summer...but the house was a perfect oasis for us. The AC kept the inside comfortable even with the Phoenix sun beating down, as the position of the house is perfectly situated with the backyard to the east, so the pool doesn't get barbecued in the afternoon.
The inside of the house is charming, perfectly laid out, clean, comfortable and efficient. We went to the local warehouse food store and bought for the 10 days we were there, cooked every meal in the nice kitchen (and gas BBQ on the back patio), and completely filled both refrigerators (one in the garage) with water and sports drinks.
The location of the house is absolutely perfect in an extremely clean and safe neighborhood...a short 8-10 minute drive to the baseball fields/sports complexes in West Phoenix, within 2 minutes of supermarkets and movie theaters, and only a 20 or so minute drive to the airport and downtown. The freeways in the area are infinitely more efficient than my Los Angeles freeways with more lanes and frontage roads than cars, so getting around Phoenix is a breeze from this central location as long as you avoid the rush hours in the metro area.
You won't find nicer landlords than the folks who own this house. Their communication was quick and clear, and they were very polite and respectful of our stay (we had a wind storm blow through one night, which dirtied up the pool a bit. Our landlords came right out and cleaned it for us the next day, which was great because we used it constantly...and it was great to meet them in person!).
Seriously...I was going to get a hotel for the 10 day duration of the tournament like the rest of our team. I am SO glad I found this place. It was like coming home...and I saved a TON of cash, compared to a hotel and eating out for every single meal. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this great house.
