About Pattie Gibson, Owner

I love to travel and have used others seasonal rentals with success and much enjoyment. I've tried to provide in the coziness and relaxation of my Mesa condo an experience that I would want to have 'if I were the guest'.

I am a business and computer teacher (all levels--high school, community college, and university), have owned my own computer consulting company and am a seasoned textbook author of seven books.

Pattie Gibson, Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why Pattie Gibson, Owner chose Mesa Grande

I bought this property in 2000 and have used it personally for my two kids when they went to ASU and for myself during especially busy times in my life and after life events that turned my world around.

I have always felt peace upon entering the condo. It's small enough to be intimate; yet, big enough to have guests and friends over and fun times. I love it and feel good to be able to share it with those of like mind. I want my guests to really enjoy their stay and have a great time in the Valley of the Sun.

What makes this condo unique

An easy walk and less than 3 blocks from the New Chicago Cubs Spring Training Complex in Mesa's beautiful Riverview Park. No parking problems. The Riverview Park is a popular, yet local, Water Park,with water play areas and the very popular 'Rope Tower'. Walking paths are abundant for strollers or the exercise enthusiasts!

Quiet, convenient condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days, specifically because it was close to Slone Park (Cubs Spring training). We discovered that this location was also perfect for other activities, including exploring Scottsdale, finding new places for dinner (for great beer and a good meal, don't miss Two Brothers in Scottsdale or Famous Dave's in Mesa) and for doing some fabulous hiking (Lost Dutchman State Park is well worth the 25 mile drive)!

This condo is large enough to find space to be together, or to relax in a quiet side room for some reading time.

As important as the details of the condo might be, the most impressive part was the easy communication we had with the owner, Pattie. We will definitely return here if/when we return to Mesa!

Loved the location., so close to Sloan Park, which is why we came to Arizona.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable accommodations. Had a minor maintenance issue, but owner, Pattie, was extremely easy to work with. Upgrade on stove would probably improve kitchen, as we cooked quite a few meals the week we stayed. Would definitely stay here again.🖒�🖒�

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. I am especially pleased that you alerted me early on and were accommodating in arranging the repair to the minor plumbing problem that surfaced during your stay. It would be my honor to have you return for a subsequent stay. Again, I'm so pleased my condo met your needs. Pattie
