A great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to stay at this great place. Everything from the remodeled look, to the spacious and comfortable rooms made this part of a great vacation. The little attention to details, like providing us with some food in the kitchen and having free internet access makes it so that we didn't want to leave! Also, once we found out the sofas in the living room were reclinable, that just made our TV watching and video game playing all the more enjoyable. Finally, compared to other places in the area, your prices can't be beat!

Thank you James and Mary! :)

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

The house was just the right size for 4 adults & 2 kids. We liked the separate "game" room off the living area. It was great for the little kids. It was well appointed and stocked better than any other house we've rented in the past. We were there for Spring training and it was an easy drive to whatever stadium we wanted to go to. The pool area was very nice and just a couple minute walk from the house. The directions for managing the house were well explained. The only thing lacking was a DVD player in the main living room. We would definitely stay here again.

Great home for Spring Training or Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

I travel to Phoenix each spring with other golfers and baseball fans. This home is super clean and in good shape. The owner was very responsive by email when we booked the house. It is very close to Surprise Stadium and 20-30 minutes to Peoria. Close by are Sun City Grand and Sun City West and about a dozen golf courses. Each bedroom has a TV as well as the family room and den. While we didn't use the pool it looked very nice and is about a couple blocks away. I usually try to balance my reviews with whatever was a negative but there just weren't any. When I couldn't find something in the house the owner answered my text immediately and I found it. Problem solved. Would definitely stay here again. By the way, our deposit was mailed the day after our stay which is very, very quick. Other times we have had to wait a couple weeks.

Nice House

  • 3 of 5

Very nice that it was close enough to walk to Surprise Stadium. The living area was small and there wasn't enough seating for 6 people, also only 5 chairs at the dining table. Would be nice if there was a DVD player in the main living area. More than the 6 of us would have be very cramped.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we could have hoped for. Very clean, well stocked and only 1/2 block to the pool area. This is a very quiet complex and is very safe for kids. Altogether we had 4 adults and 5 children (ages 3-12) and there was plenty of room for all. Great location that is central to everything you would need. Highly recommend this property and hope to use it again next year.

Wonderful experience in spacious home

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this home was perfect for our family's needs. The main floor was very inviting and comfortable. It provided 4 very spacious bedrooms on the 2nd floor perfectly laid out to allow for privacy. All of which were perfectly decorated.

The community heated pool provided a lot of family time with lots of sun and 80 degree weather.

A perfect week in a perfect home.

Car: recommended

We full in love with the Surprise area several years ago. You will too. Surprise has many activities. Nearby you can find 30+ golf courses, Surprise sport complex is walking distance that includes Surprise stadium, Tennis and racquet complex (includes tennis, racquetball and table tennis, community park, dream catcher park and library), White Tank Mountain Park is a 30,000 acre park featuring trail walking, hiking, biking, picnicking, horseback riding and star gazing, lots of shopping and many restaurants. Past visitors have also gone gliding, hot air ballooning, ATV exploring in the desert, see NFL football game or NHL hockey game and of course lots of spring training and fall league baseball. So much to do and enjoy or maybe just relax.
