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 Phoenix

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)

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is a perfect place to vacation with friends. We had a total of three couples and each enjoyed having their own bathroom and the king size beds. The decor was beautiful and was definitely designer furnished. There was plenty of room for us all to spread out and relax with room for more. We enjoyed many hours around the pool in the sun and several evenings around the fire pit. The house was clean, well maintained and stocked with plenty of kitchen gadgets if we had wanted to cook. The owner was very easy to work with. Enjoyed the house and will definitely come back.

Very spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We came to Arizona for our daughter's wedding and the house was absolutely perfect for our needs. Steve was very accessible for any questions or issues that we had. It was a nice neighborhood and nice to have the walking trails across the street. The property itself was very private and we used the outdoor area quite a bit barbecuing and even had a couple of fires. The house itself was large enough so that everyone had their own space and bathroom. We found the the kitchen well equipped and spacious to work in. The grocery store was around the corner, along with quite a few stores and restaurants. It was about a 20-25 drive to Scottsdale where the wedding took place and was easy to get to the Sedona area.

Great and roomy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a combined family with and without children. The large layout of the home was great for everyone to have privacy.

The outside patio and pool was perfect for entertaining with everything we needed.

The home is in north Phoenix which made for less hectic traffic. Lots of great shopping nearby. Easy access to the interstate towards

Sedona and the Grand Canyon.

Would definitely recommend.

Perfect for us

  • 3 of 5

The main reason we chose the Rapalo home was the layout of the house and pool area has some features that are hard to find and important to us. I've rented many homes for our annual Spring Training trip. I knew this home was at a price point where you don't exactly get what I'd call "luxury", it was going to be more like very nice "family" accommodations. So the property had the hard to find features that were important to us , the accommodations were what I expected them to be and Steve was easy to deal with and helpful when a couple of unexpected things happen. It was perfect for us. But I can see how a person could go to the Homeaway site, rent this property thinking they were going to have "4 or 5 star luxury accommodations, be disappointed and write a bad review. The house itself is very comfortable, but more "tired" than it appears in the photos. All the photos were probably taken when the property was first turned into a vacation rental. Over the years so many of the furnishings pictured have either been removed, changed out, or rearranged that it is probably time to update to some more current photos.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The owner was incredibly pleasant while getting us set up with our stay. The house was immaculate upon arrival. Pool was clean and backyard was a resort style oasis. House was huge inside. Several friends came to visit and were so impressed. The house had everything you would need for a great stay. We are working on booking it again in September!!
