Surprise House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, Sleeps 8

This home has 4 roomy bedrooms, 3 and one half bathrooms and a 3 car garage with a private heated pool and hot-tub - everything that expensive hotel has and more. NOTE: One large bedroom on main floor with a generous ensuite for seniors or disabled.

It has over 2850 square feet of living space.

The backyard Pebble-Tec pool can be heated when required (MAY BE ADDITIONAL CHARGE) and the hot-tub is only minutes away from being hot and soothing. The pool has a safety fence and the patio door and outside pool gate closes automatically to prevent children from getting into the pool area. The patio has a outside fan and comfortable Better Homes and Gardens brand furniture to relax on and spend the day outside.

A large flagstone patio has been added for the four cushy chairs that are gathered around a propane firepit. The 10' offset umbrella keeps the sun off during the day. Enjoy the warm toasty fireplace while watching children in the pool or hottub.

NEW!! Added a 32' Flat Screen TV outside under the covered patio. Now you won't miss the game while you are supervising the kids or the steaks.

NEW!! Two sets of right handed golf clubs - so you don't have to bring your own. Or maybe you have always wanted to golf but did not want to pay the high rental cost or purchase before you knew if you enjoyed the game. Here is your chance to try for free. You will just need some golf shoes or comfortable runners

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for using your home - great place and sure nice when equipped so well. We had great weather and golfing was super. Hope to return next year - location is very good. We've rented all over Phoenix and we have never seen one so organized. We recommend "Apothic" red wine at Safeway!

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful week at this beautiful home! The owner, Barbm has excellent communication skills and the house is exactly is pictured and described as the listing. A huge plus was all the amenities, and they even had bottled water, wine, and PF Chang gift cards for us to use! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful Tuscany home! I highly recommend this property!

Fantastic Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic. I just spent a week there with a group of ladies away on a golf trip. There were four bedrooms, one for each of us. Nobody felt crowded. There were enough bathrooms for us all (and you know how women can be in a bathroom) so nobody had to wait on anyone else. The beds are all super comfortable, and well appointed bedding and furniture throughout the home. You can really see the pride the owners have in this house. It is very well kept, was immaculately clean.

The kitchen is fantastic, well stocked with everything a person could want for cooking there own meals. I have very restricted dietary issues, so being able to cook ourselves as opposed to eating out was teriffic.

The back yard is wonderful, and very private. It has a pool, and hot tub, as well as two sitting areas, one if you want sun, and one in the shade if you don't. It even has a large flat screen TV out there also, so you don't miss any sports, news, etc.

This place was fantastic, and the owners very very accomodating. I will definitely be back!!

Thank you so much Barb & Ted. Beautiful home.

Great location, great house, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We have rented houses in the valley every summer since 2004, and this has been the best house ever. We spent a month here. It is large and homely and the location is close to everything you need. The pool is gorgeous and the owners make you feel welcome. We were able to cook meals as the kitchen had everything we needed. We would certainly recommend this house and intend, if circumstances permit, returning next summer. Only one problem...... having to leave!!!!

Luxurious home!

  • 5 of 5

This deluxe home was really wonderful for our girlfriends 12 day vacation! We enjoyed many hours in or by the pool, as well as the spacious interior. Everything we needed and more!! The spa treatments by a nearby neighbour were terrific, as was ALL of the nearby shopping and restaurants/pubs! Hiking at White Tank, day trip to Sedona, and another day in Wickenburg were all an easy drive from the house. Can't wait to go back next year!

Thanks so much Barb & Ted ;-)

Owner's Response: I am very happy to hear good reviews. I want my renters to feel very pampered on their holidays and hope that everything in the home helps them to feel that way. I have fabulous neighbors and we are lucky to have a certified esthetician right across the street She can offer our guests hot rock massages, pedicures and manicures among other things. I recently purchased two sets of golf clubs for those who do not want to lug their own set along or for beginners who would like to try their hand at it. I hope to never disappoint anyone on their vacation.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We rented Barb's house from Apr 9th to 18th 2011. We are 3 couples with the guys playing in a national tennis tournament at the nearby tennis center. The location was really close to the tennis center, supermarkets and many eateries. The house was ever better than the pictures. All the comforts of home and then some (pool and spa). Would definitely recommend the house for folks looking for a great area rental.

This house was amazing. Everything that was needed was readily available. We were able to have a beautiful early Christmas holiday with our children and relatives. It was just like being at home, the kitchen and dining are were perfect for entertaining. I highly recommend this house. Thanks again Barb and Ted.
