Guestbook comments from the owner

Close to everything this was truly a home away from home. We enjoyed hiking Papago Park, trips to the Phoenix Zoo and Old Town Scottsdale. Also really easy access to all the freeways. This condo was so well stocked we only had to replace what we used which made it so convenient. The pool area was delightful and all the residents of the complex were so nice and friendly. We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo and will hopefully return again for a few months next year. Thank you Peggy and Jim

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was clean, and looked just as it was listed. There were extras, like golf clubs and 2 bikes that we could have used, as well as grocery bags and other extras. There was unopened food in the cupboard and fridge to get us started, and we had no problem finding what we needed for cooking. The common areas were very well maintained, including the pool/hot tub area, and the landscaping seems to be tended to daily by a groundskeeper. Very nice. Recommend highly.

Comfortable, but...

  • 3 of 5

A comfortable condo. Very well equipped. Lots and lots of amenities including spices and kitchen supplies. That was very appreciated.

A couple of small points... The TV Sat dish took about an hour to warm up. Prior to that it would freeze for 1-5 minutes. Sorta lost the trend of the show we were watching.

The balcony faces north. Chilly in Nov. No sun at all.

The biggest problem we had was the requirement to launder, dry and fold linens and towels before leaving.

The facilities are at the end of the condo bldg. The process takes 90 mins minimum. That's a long time when you have an early morning flight home.

The worst part of this was the requirement to do laundry was not mentioned until after agreeing to rent the unit.

Please be up front with this requirement!

All in all a nice unit but I would not rent again nor recommend due to laundry requirements.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike, Thank you for your review and your feedback. It's always appreciated whether good or bad so that we can improve the quality of our listing when needed. It sounds like you really liked the place other than the issue with the laundry so I will address that issue here: While the laundry (linens only) is a requirement (and is mentioned in the online listing), the laundry facility is next door and actually attached to our unit. It could not be more convenient. Also, the option to pay $25.00 to have the cleaning crew do the laundry is there if early flights, etc. cause a conflict. Communication is key and we stress to each and every guest that we are always available and want to hear from them if there are any questions or concerns at all during their stay. It's unfortunate that you didn't contact us. We would have been happy to have these things taken care of for you. We are glad though that you did enjoy the accommodations. Kind regards, Peggy and Jim

Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

It was a long drive to and from the Mesa Airport, but during our stay the location worked out very well for us. A very short drive gets you on the freeway, and from there you can get anywhere fast! The Walgreens across the street was also very convenient on many occasions!

We were a party of three; two adults and a toddler and there was plenty of room in this condo for us which is kept very clean. We didn't get to use them but it was nice to see bikes and life jackets in the closet, along with other amenities! We sat on the balcony on a few nights, and it was always very quiet! We very much felt at home!

You can't see any mountains directly from the condo, but once you walk/drive onto 56th, there is an amazing view north to Camelback Mountain! We couldn't hike the trail, but driving the residential streets at the base of the mountain provides some amazing sights and was a great activity close to the condo as was the drive thru Papago Park and the Zoo itself, also a great activity very close to the condo. Old Town Scottsdale, you guessed it, also close!

I had to contact Jim and Peggy a couple times, thru phone and email, and they were very friendly and quick to respond!

We enjoyed our stay, would come back, and would also recommend the property to others.

You might want to consider flying into the Phoenix airport next time. We're no more than 15 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport. Warm Regards, Peggy and Jim

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a perfect place to stay. The owners are amazing people and take great care of this condo. The complex is just what I needed, a quiet, clean and safe home away from home. We highly recommend you rent from Peggy and Jim to be sure you have exactly what you see in the wonderful pictures. We will rent again from these owners anytime we go to Phoenix. Absolutely beyond pleased with our stay at this condo!
