May 2009 Vacation Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this home and were very pleased with our choice. We especially appreciated the free coffee, tea and lemonade! The high ceilings and fans were a nice extra and it's very clean! Much nicer than it appears in the photos... Beth even allowed us to bring our dog, which made it home to us. The notebook of area activities/amenities/map was very helpful. The kitchen was well supplied with cookware, etc., and the furnishings were nice-- especially the linens! It's an easy find off the Loop 101... We will definitely be back! Thanks so much!

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the house several times so are happy to find things as expected. There are lots of resources and extras available, making our stay easy and pleasant. Several times, we have been joined for part of our week, by friends and relatives and all were pleased by the accommodations.

We finally included a day trip to Sedona - don't miss it!

Clean, comfortable, truly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight nights over Christmas Holiday with Son, daughter in law, and daughter, who traveled from different areas of south and southwest. We travelled from northwest. All by automobiles. It was great to be able to find an awesome place to come together, all be quite comfortable, and safe. It was not just the house, walled area around back concrete deck area, it was how the house was presented with its amenities. Amenities such as, large closets in two of bedrooms, tvs in two of three bedrooms, a washer and dryer you were not afraid to wash clothes in. All three parts of family drove here for Holiday with cooking a Christmas feast in mind. As such, we did bring some special roasting pan, racks, that we desired, and we used them. However, most other items we brought were not used. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans and utinsels for normal use age. Large, clean fridge, glass cook top stove, oven used countless times. All five of us sat very comfortably at large dining room area table. Very happy with experience, would HIGHLY recommend, if someone was "wavering" on whether or not to choose this listing. Our experience in this type of renting, once in house in El Paso TX, for two weeks. Once in large apartment in Stuttgart Germany for about three weeks. Not complete "newbies". Have hopes of returning some time. Best wishes to Beth and Dean, never met while here, just text and calls. They obviously respect privacy, and go to great pain to make people comfortable!!!
