About Fran Titze
Kent and I are from Nebraska and are Husker Fans. Kent is a Horticulturalist and I am a Realtor with Realty One Group. We own Horticultural Frontiers Landscape and Design in Phoenix. Kent has been in Phoenix since 1984 and I have since 2002. We knew each other in High School and reconnect at a class reunion and got married in 2003!
Fran Titze purchased this House in 2004
Why Fran Titze chose Greater Phoenix Area
We bought our 4 properties one at a time starting in 2004, with the one bedroom Mirage, the view made the decision easy and as the other houses became available we purchased them. It is convenient with each house above the other. We also live on the mountain so we are just minutes away if our guest need us. Kent's mom and son and his family also are on the mountain, so we are very protective and proud of our little place in the world.
What makes this House unique
The Mirage we purchased first. We thought we could fix it up and sell or rent it but after doing so we fell in love with the house and the view and decided to do short term vacation rental. We loved the theme idea so as we acquired each one we decided to not only have the decor match the theme but even the permanent fixtures! The Margarita was the last house a one bedroom, it is the 3rd highest house in Phoenix, so fantastic views. Everyone loves the houses, views and the themes. One of the benefits for us is when friends and family come to visit they have a nice place to stay. Also a benefit is we have made pretty good friends with a few of the people who come to visit every year. We have one person who will be coming for their 5th anniversary at Sunset Mountain. I love all our houses and can't decide which I like best. The guest house is located directly beneath the Ranchero and is a Studio. It is called The Parlor, it's décor is an 1890's western look!! You won't be disappointed with it!

CUTE CUTE CUTE
My husband and I stayed in The Parlor (Studio) from the 17th through the 24th of March for Spring Training. We couldn't ask for better people to meet. Fran was very nice and hospitable. A true fellow Husker Fan!!!
The décor was absolutely adorable. Views to die for. We were treated (?) one night to a wind and rain storm-followed by a lightning show. Because of it's location - the view was incredible. The unit was stocked with the items you need to cook if you so desire. Private deck and Hot tub were the icing on that cupcake.
The Parlor is perfect for a couple. Not enough room for more than two people. Unfortunately we were unable to hook up with Fran to view the other units - for future rentals.
Thank you so much for your review! I am sorry I missed you to show you the Ranchero, please take a look at the pictures, I think your family would love it! Usually you don't want a storm on your vacation, but I agree the lightening in Phoenix is beautiful to watch! Hope to see you two again and I am glad you enjoyed The Parlor!
Incredible Home and Better Host!
Could not have enjoyed The Ranchero more! From the incredible views to the owner-designed custom furniture, the home is truly a masterpiece. The host made us feel at home from the moment we met! Unforgettable trip!
Comfortable & Convenient
My stay in the Mirage was very enjoyable - great sunsets from the deck, privacy and all the things you need to relax & feel at home. The location was perfect for most of my destinations especially hiking trails which are just minutes away. The high ceiling in the main room adds atmosphere to the nicely appointed decor. Friendly hosts ensure a nice stay - glad i chose this rental home.
I am so happy you enjoyed The Mirage for your vacation in Phoenix. We hope you will try us again in the future!
We had a great time. It was extremely relaxing and so awesome to have our place to call home for a few days! The decks were a perfect view point! We spent four days busy and one full day at the house just hanging out!! We will be back! Ken & Fran were so hospitable! Don't climb the driveway in flip flops! We will be back if Fran & Ken will have us!!!

Was just perfect.
My husband and I, plus two dogs, stayed in the Salon, the studio rental. It was comfortable, the outside porches and view were spectacular. The hot tub was delightful. The dogs were happy. We let them wander in and out. So relaxing after staying in hotels with the dogs.
UNIQUE - PRIVATE - SPECTACULAR VIEW
The Margarita was perfect for us. Loved the privacy, view and especially our own private sundown hot tub. The spacious deck was perfect for meals and the 100 Scrabble matches we played during our 2 month visit.
Thank you to Fran, Kent and Aaron our spa guy.
See you again in December 2016
Wendy & Pidge from Minnesota

PS. I will tell Aaron Hi, from you too!
Sunset Mountain Casitas are located on the northern edge of Phoenix approximately 1/2 mile from 101 and Cave Creek Road. Close to several lakes, minutes from Mayo Clinic. The Casita sits back from any traffic and high above road noise and city sounds yet moments from escaping the urban life to Lake Pleasant and Saguaro Lake. We are located upon a Saguaro populated mountain with several desert wildlife. Fox, coyote, roadrunners, quail, javelina and several birds. A reasonable drive to Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Golf: Golf in every direction. From expensive to very reasonable.
