About Cindy Caniglia

My wife and I are very active people. We love the outdoors, golf, hiking, biking. After spending many winter vacations in Arizona we decided to buy a beautiful home in Mesa. We love being able to come from Nebraska and play golf, hike, bike and swim in the middle of winter, and enjoy the beautiful Arizona nights year-around. Spending time in our backyard is like a personal oasis. We love this area and would love to share our home with you.

Cindy Caniglia purchased this house in 2006

Why Cindy Caniglia chose Mesa

This location offers so many things to do. Walk to beautiful Las Sendas golf course, mountain views are in our backyard. It is a very quiet, gated, serene community that has won several national awards. There are hiking and biking trails of all levels, literally in our backyard.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing and even more impressive in person than the pictures show. We had two families traveling together with three children under the age of 7. The backyard was perfect for everyone and even had additional toys/floats for use. There was plenty of room for all us inside and the setup with two bedrooms with attached bathrooms worked perfectly for our two family combination. Cindy was wonderful to work with, she was prompt with replies and went out of her way to make sure we were prepared for our stay and had all needed information. We also left a couple personal items at the house. Once I contacted Cindy, she made sure the items were locked away safely and then went out of her way to get the items shipped back to me securely. Our two families will definitely be staying here again, everyone was more than pleased with the home and we all had a great time.

Owner's Response: John and I are so glad you found the house accommodating to you all. We try to please! It's your vacation & we definitely want you all to enjoy yourselves and would love to have your return business.... The outside is just amazing to hang out at & the inside is very spacious for all. On sending back your personal items that is what I would hope someone would do for me if this happened. Happy New Year! Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks, Cindy & John

Las Sendas Pardise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had wanted to vacation in Las Sendas for several years but we were unable to find a property that met all of our criteria, until this year that is. Cindy was very gracious and the booking process was simple and painless. We knew the minute we walked into the front door that this was much more than a typical vacation property... it was a home, with thoughtful owners who paid attention to important details that would make our 12 days a seamless transition into the desert from our home in Canada. When we walked out into the back patio area we were greeted by my dream design of what a vacation home's back yard should be. The heated saltwater pool and spa provided much needed Therapeutic relief and will be dearly missed. On behalf of my wife, daughter and myself, we would like to thank Cindy and John for providing such a wonderful place to stay and for being such thoughtful hosts. Glen, Lilly & Nicole

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This house was such a blessing to our family of 6. We have 4 young children this was the first vacation we've had where my husband and I can truly say that we were able to completely relax and refresh and really just have fun as a family. This house was laid out so well and truly made for a perfect vacation. We've rented a house in the area before and had problems with the temperature in the house being too warm and the pool temp being too cold. We were a little hesitant about those issues here, but they proved to be no problem at all. The house was perfectly cool and the warmth of the pool and hot tub made for a luxurious experience. Even on an overcast, chilly day we were able to enjoy the pool and hot tub as a family. Our favorite features of the house were the single floor layout, the self closing patio doors ( perfect for young children!), the pool toys, fire pit and the warm temps of the pool and hot tub. The only "problem" we had while there was a pool light not working and Cindy responded to us within an hour and had it fixed promptly. Thank you Cindy for sharing this treasure with us - we can't wait to return again!

Owner's Response: I am so glad the house was a success for your vacation! You and your family sound like the home was perfect for you all. That is our goal to make our home yours! Sorry about the light but a few things happen beyond my control & glad it was such an easy fix. See you next year.... Thanks, Cindy & John

A beautiful getaway oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Cindy and John were excellent home owners to help make our first vacation home such a huge success. So thank you first of all. Also thank you for sharing your beautiful home. My husband and I spent everyday in the pool and/or hot tub, and we created our own game of golf, which was really fun. The backyard is gorgeous and so relaxing. The house was so well kept up, instructional book to help make our stay easier, spices and well stocked kitchen to help us cook our own meals. The booklets and information to help us enjoy every second of our stay was great. We experienced as much as we could and our adventures were just minutes away from lakes with boat tours, hiking trails, Tortilla Flats, NBA basketball (Phoenix Suns won!), metro-rail, flea markets, shopping and many more activities. The pictures don't do this place justices - it is relaxing, private and the scenery from the balcony is stunning with the mountains and evening city lights in the distance. Your home created a "homey" feeling for us. Thank you again for making our first vacation home a great one! Look forward to staying with you again! Thanks again John and Cindy. Roger and Delores, North Dakota

Spectacular home and amazing owners!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just keep saying "This is the best time we have had in the several years we have been coming to Mesa!" John and Cindy's home is the nicest home we have ever rented. It is liking staying in your best friend's home while they are out of town - everything you could possibly need and more and so beautifully maintained. There are not enough adjectives to describe the beauty of the back yard. You are at the most elegant resort and you have rented the Presidential Cottage with your own private oasis. These pictures do not begin to display the beauty and restfulness and fun of this yard We had family join us and the layout of the home allowed all of us to feel as if we had our own private wing. John and Cindy are available should you have any questions - however everything is completely explained in their book complete with suggestions of things to do. Things we can recommend - explore the countryside and take advantage of the many hiking trails, Casa Grande Ruins and the Besh Ba Gowan Ruins, drive the Salt River Canyon, discover Old Town Scottsdale, discover Cave Creek, Take the drive through Jerome through Red Rock Highway Look to Sedona to discover the majesty of the Red Rocks. Each evening you come home to your own private oasis. And all this, if you can get yourself to leave this wonderful resort home. What a pure pleasure working with John and Cindy and when you see the beauty of this home, you can see how much they love it and there time in AZ also. You will not find a place to equal this!!!!! We will be back as soon as we can.
