About Helen Bartels
Helen and Jason met while Jason was stationed in the United Kingdom. Much like a war bride of the 40's Jason swept Helen off her feet with chocolate and panty hose. Helen left her job as a medical doctor with the Royal Air Force to join Jason in Phoenix who is currently flying America's most advanced jet F-35.
Helen Bartels purchased this Bungalow in 2016
Why Helen Bartels chose Pendergast West Estates
The Manor House was originally built in 1986-87 by Dale Martenson. Dale developed much of what is today Sun City. Eventually, Dale sold to Gordon Vasferet who added the pool, Casita and Studio. Finally, Helen and Jason purchased the home in 2016 and began a massive renovation on the property. To put things in perspective the bathrooms in the Manor still had the original carpet! Today the Manor and its surrounding buildings have been updated and modernized with high speed internet and a mesh wifi system. Slowly they have brought the place into the 21st Century.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The Casita @ the Manor House is the perfect location whether you need to travel to downtown or enjoy the nightlife and nearby Westgate. From the Casita you can walk to the University of Phoenix Stadium to watch the Cardinals play.

Beautiful and spacious place, but loud because of the highway
My husband and I had a great stay at the Casita, it was clean, open and spacious, very close to the Gila River Arena which was why we stayed here. The host provided cereal and other breakfast options which was great, and there were orange and grapefruit trees available to us in the back yard. Unfortunately the Casita is directly beside a highway and we both found it very loud at night and had a hard time sleeping. One of the previous reviews said that one of the bedrooms might be quieter than the other, but we found them both to be quite loud.
Thank you for your review. We apologize that you found the Casita to be loud. Everybody has a different definition based on their own experiences. Understandably we want to provide the best experience for Casita guests. Realizing this we had already programmed new windows in April of this year. We hope you stay with us again in the future.
Thank you for the feedback.
Very nice casita! Clean and well kept
Our stay was great! Clean and well kept, entry instructions were impeccable and welcome binder was helpful. We walked to the NFL stadium to avoid the traffic which turns out to be a pretty easy 1 mile walk. We felt very welcome and even came home to some fresh fruit from the trees on the property. The only thing that wasn’t great was the traffic that can be heard from one of the bedrooms so if you’re a light sleeper, you might choose the room further from the street. Would definitely stay again!
Super cute casita!!
Perfect location for going to an event at the stadium, walking distance. The house is very cute, all updated, and very clean! Would recommend and would stay again if ever in the area!!
Convenient, Private, Secure
This place was awesome! Definitely recommend it. Everything was great, clean, and the pictures do
Not do the place justice. Would definitely stay here again.
Great house in a great area!
A comfortable and clean place to stay! Very well stocked. We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the atmosphere! We would definitely stay there again! Owners are very available and helpful!
Very clean and comfortable!
This is a very nice property.
We are walking distance from the Unv of Phoenix stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, and the Gila River Arena, home of the Coyotes. Both venues regularly host concerts and other events such as monster truck racing. Adjacent to these venues is the fantastic Westgate Entertainment District with numerous places to eat and a multiplex cinema. My personal favorite is Kabuki, a wonderful Japanese restaurant and Jason loves the Yard House; I think the 200 beers on tap may have something to do with his preference! Tanger Outlets are a few hundred yards from Westgate and I always manage to find a bargain here. If hunting is your thing, there is also a large Cabela's nearby.
The Ak Chin Pavilion is another popular concert venue and this is just a few miles away from us. They have a great Uber/ Left set up which we have used with ease.
