Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for us. The owner was great to work with and we even got to meet him. Everything in the house worked and it was very clean. The heated pool was the most popular of all the amenities! I would not have any problem with booking any of his properties.

Too far away from children activities for me and not at all unscented

  • 3 of 5

This place had an air freshener in the closet and was super scented. Even the toilet paper was scented! I work really hard trying to make sure the places I stay use scent free products but this place is run by someone who doesn't live in the area so I don't believe they knew. I also had a small toddler and it was a good 25 min drive to the Zoo and all the other activities we wanted to do. I liked the high chair and crib provided and the backyard was safe for kids which was nice.

If you don't care about fragrance the place is nice. We didn't use the pool as it was too cold outside, so I wished I had just rented a place without a pool it would have been cheaper.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful, it is well stocked and the pool was fun. Two families with 5 little kids stayed for a long Thanksgiving weekend. The fence around the pool with a high gate lock was ideal. There were plenty of TV's and channels so the football people were happy and the kids still got their cartoons. The beds are very comfortable too. Blair was very responsive when we had any questions. I highly recommend this property!

Graduation Weekend in Arizona!

  • 3 of 5

First a little bit about the property itself: pictures don't really do it justice. It is beautiful, well-appointed, and quite comfortable to stay in. We rented it for a three-day stay to attend my masters graduation at nearby Grand Canyon University. My elderly dad was traveling with us and the fact that there were so many comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms as well as all the listed amenities put this listing at the top of our list despite the cost. We always figure you get what you pay for, right?

Sadly, what was lacking here was simple communication. There were several things that went wrong during the trip: most notably the written instructions available at the home itself seem to contradict what Blair the owner tells the renters via private emails or text messages. At any rate, we were surprised our very first day (after arriving the night before) by loud doorbell ringing by their property manager, Maria. She came by to "do laundry in the garage" which we thought was odd since we were told we'd be having the property by ourselves. Secondly, she asked us WHY the garbage on the side yard was full...we had no idea as we'd just arrived...and also who's garbage was it? After a brief conversation we emailed Blair and he got back to us right away just to defend Maria and say "no one has ever said that about her before!"

The cable channels were not hooked up in the three secondary bedrooms nor in the media room which put another damper on our stay. In all written instructions it says to please "email first, then text" unless it is an emergency. Since it was not an emergency we did those two things and were not contacted by Blair the rest of our stay. He said later that he'd been "out of the office" and didn't get any emails. Hmmm, my email goes to my phone but OK.

Lastly, the pool's waterslide did not function. The remote that was instructed for its use was found by us outside upon our arrival. The batteries were dead so we replaced them, still it did not work. Another written instruction in-house stipulated for us to NEVER touch any of the pool equipment. Again, not an emergency, just an annoyance that we thought we'd paid for by spending more money on this rental over many others available with fewer amenities.

Overall, a disappointing stay, not because of the house so much but for the lack of responsiveness by the owner and then by his lack of empathy to our situation. He offered a 15% discount on a future stay but we declined.

Owner's Response: First of all, this is not a review of the property, and should truly be removed from the site. It is a review of a miscommunication that arose during this guest's stay, which was entirely her doing. It could have been resolved in a few min, had she followed the instructions that were given to her in the welcome email prior to her arrival. I specifically tell each guest that if there are any issued during their stay that they must TEXT or call me on my personal 24/7 cell number. Failing that, we also provide the guest with our on-site manager's cell, who lives just 5 min away. Instead, this guest arrived on a Friday, and chose to sent me an EMAIL late Saturday afternoon to inquire about how to operate the pool water slide, TV's in the back bedrooms, and the projection TV in the theater room, but because I was away at my child's hockey tournament, I did not get the email till Sunday morning, and the guest departed on Sunday at noon. Had the guest just called me, text me, or called or text my manager, as instructed before arrival, the issue could have been resolved quickly. We have a manual switch for the water slide if the remote is not working, the TV's in the back bedrooms simply needed to have the input reset, and we have a new over head projector in the theater room with a book of operation instructions that our guests have access to. We strive to be 100%, but on occasion there are issues that can arise, that is why we have an on site manager, and also why we provide cell numbers specifically for quick contact. My personal cell number is on every piece of correspondence that I send to our guests. Email is just not an effective means of communication to get an issue resolved quickly. As a side note, we had guests leaving the day that this guest arrived. When this happens, sometimes we need extra time to finish up the laundry. We have a separate, private laundry facility in the garage that our guests do not have access to, as there is another laundry room inside the house. Our manager did ring the bell to let the guest know that she was just finishing up the laundry in the garage, but the guest was extremely rude and abrupt with our manager for no reason. We have never received a three star review before, 99% are 5 star reviews. After years of renting I have realized that some people are impossible to make happy. Even though the communication issue was not our fault, I still offered to give them a discount on a future rental.
