About Steve

I grew up in San Diego California and found Phoenix to be the perfect place to live. We travel to California often but love living here.

We lived in this home for 5 years and loved every minute of it and just thought that maybe large families would like to gather here and enjoy it as much as we did.

I currently Live only 10 minutes away in a single story home about the same size as this one in Peoria.

Steve purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve chose North Gateway

Private backyard, beautiful interior and exterior,

cul-de-sac safe and secure. SUPER COOL in Summer because of the way the house is built and 3 air conditioning units .

Close to everything only 30 minutes to anywhere you want to go. Wild Waves/Golf/Outlet Shopping/Hiking

Neighborhood is great!

Super Friendly

What makes this house unique

We have 2 heated community pools and a 12 person spa along with 2 lighted Tennis Courts and a full Basket Ball court and sand volleyball pit not far away. Big park too.

Hiking out the front door to the mountains out the bedroom windows. Doves, Road Runners, All Around, Never seen a snake or scorpion in 17 years by or around our home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family met at this home January 20th-27th. This home is big enough for families to meet and it has social areas to entertain and enough space to give everyone their privacy. The outside areas are very comfortable, definitely need to have the pool heated in January. The house was very clean and stocked with just about anything you would need on a vacation. The owner was very accomodating and concerned with our comfort. The area was safe and handy to any shopping, the main highways made it easy to get to any touring and attractions in the area. The common areas in the complex are good, you do have to drive to the other area and hot tub, there is one pool with a play ground within walking distance too. I would definitely reccommend this house to any group looking for a large enough place to gather and enjoy a great time in the desert! ( Unable to post on Homeaway for some reason)

  • 1 of 5

We had to contact the owner on several occasions for supplies that were suppose to be there and weren't! I was extremely disappointed in how dirty the house was! There were cupboards with balled up linens in them and cupboards and drawers with what looked like a combination of dirt and food crumbs!!! The wife walked in to the backyard to put chlorine in the pool and we had two teenagers swimming in the pool. She never announced herself and we were not informed she was coming! When we went out to ask her who she was she was very snotty and had an attitude!

All in all I did not like this property and would not recommend it to anyone! If changes were made I might reconsider!!!

Owner's Response: Our guests were 7 Ladies and 2 teenagers who came for an Origami Conference here in Phoenix. We made some furniture adjustments to accomadate them better as requested before they arrived and had frequent pleasant conversations as well. Our home is professionally cleaned and inspected before every check in with a video of the cleaning, date and time stamped as well with a reminder to let us know within 2 days if we need to address anything from a cleaniness aspect. We stock our home with 2 toliet paper rolls per bathroom that is 10 total. We have a least 2 large Bounty size paper towels at every check in. The next day we checked on our guests as usual and they said they needed more paper towels and there was No mention of anything else that they wanted us to fix or that they were unhappy about. "The house was beautiful" they said. We made a trip to the house within 45 min to bring 8 rolls of Bounty and extra laundry soap, just incase. Then 3 days later with only 2 more days in their stay they texted us to bring more toliet paper if we could, because they were down to only one roll in each bath room and they didn't want to run out. We made another trip to accomodate their request even though they said (if we Could bring some more, that would be great!). My wife Lori, is the kindest most thoughtful and generous person I have ever known and we both announce ourselves loudly when going into the back yard to service the pool so as not to surprise anyone and that is what she did too. The adults inside may not have heard her however. From my wife's account as she was cleaning out the skimmer of leaves etc one of the ladies inside came out and exclaimed, Who are you? My wife said, "I am Lori the home owner and I'm just here to service the pool. Did you get your paper products I left for you at the front door?" The lady said "yes I did but someone said there was a Wierdo out in the back yard". she responded with, "Well I will be finished in few minutes" and then she left. They left the house in decent order and we gave them a 5 star rating and returned their full deposit on time. Based on our past guests enjoyment and the extra effort we put in to honor their requests this time, we are at a loss to understand the review we received. We do wish them well in their future travels.

Wonderful Property & Amazing Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our party of ten. Totally child and family friendly. Lots of space and amenities for vacationers.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary and had about 5 extra people (for celebration only) come in for a small vow renewal and reception. Steve was totally cool with it and the property was perfect. We hope to stay again in the future.

Steve's communication was wonderful if we needed him, he would respond within no more than 15 minutes through email.

Great Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Phoenix with a family of six for vacation and a scouting trip of GCU where my oldest son will be attending college this year. This home could not have been more perfect for our needs. It was spacious, clean and had all the appliances, accessories and luxuries needed to take make our time relaxing and enjoyable. The outdoor patio and pool area was awesome with strategically placed landscaping to give it a comfortable and private feel. The location in North Phoenix was great. All the restaurants, grocery and shopping you need within 5-10 minutes of the home. From the day I first inquired about renting the home to the day we checked out, the owners (Steve and Lori) were extremely quick to respond and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend a stay here any time of year!

Perfect for Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as advertised and was perfect for a holiday gathering with the extended family. The open floor plan and large rooms provided plenty of space even for four families. The kids loved the pool and outdoor space. It got a thumbs up from everyone.
