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.

Amazing House and Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation! We were a total of 6, four adults and two kids (on the younger side). The house was laid out great for entertaining, the pool was fenced so we didn't have to worry about kids getting access without permission. The media room was fantastic for kids in the evening to wind down before bedtime. The open concept was ideal for hanging out in the kitchen and outside. Pool was clean and yard was well groomed! We enjoyed everything about this house.

If I had to provide one piece of constructive criticism it would be that the outdoor seating seems like it may need to be revamped soon. The strips under the cushions seemed stretched so you would sink a little into the furniture but it was very nice and certainly not a reason to choose another property.

I hope we get the opportunity to rent this house again! We had such an amazing experience, this place truly made our vacation since we were in the house/pool the majority of the time. Thank you so very much for sharing your home!

Amazing Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a space to call home, with all of the amenities, look no further. 4 adults and 2 children (6 & 8) vacationed in this Scottsdale home for 8 days in July. The beds were terrific, the kitchen well stocked and the living areas were spacious and well pointed. The pool was used everyday and provided the perfect way to cool off in Arizona's summer heat. We called on Blair and property manager Maria during our stay, and we were met with quick, courteous responses. We had the pleasure to meet both and found them to be helpful and friendly. We hope to travel back next summer and will definitely look to this property that exceeded our needs.

Nice property

  • 5 of 5

Nice property. Maria was a good property manager and took care of our needs. They were still cleaning when we arrived and that's the only complaint we had.. Everything else was very good. Excellent location and plenty to do in the area. Thanks Maria.

Perfectly Luxurious

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect for 2 families!

Huge Master suite, Bunk Room, Twin Room and Queen Room! 3 Full bathrooms & Washer/dryer. Great Layout for separate activities.

Kitchen was well equipped - pots and pans were really nice in comparison to other rentals (knives were predictably less than sharp & there was no we bought one and left it) - some spices and condiments were available.

GREAT pool w/ tons of towels, beautiful yard and sports court (Bring your own basketball?!?). Media Room was great for movie night and pool table was a nice distraction!

Location was perfect - within walking distance of Kierland Commons shopping mall. 25 min drive to Sloan Park - Spring Home of the Chicago Cubs! Multiple golf courses & driving ranges nearby (<10 min).

Reason its not 5-stars...things noted above + bring your own toilet paper (ran out day 1), Paper Towels (2/3 roll), & soap/shampoo. No Cable/Satellite TV!?! 6 TV's - 1 DVD player (in the media room) - kinda annoying with small kids.

I would recommend this property to my friends looking to have a nice relaxing Phoenix vacation!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback. One thing I have to say is that we encourage all of our guests to contact us immediately if something is not right, as we have a manager that lives right close by, and she can be there in minutes to rectify any problem. It is quite unusual to not have enough toiletries on site, and again easy to fix. We also have the full array of Cox Cable programming with over 200 HD channels, HBO, pay per view access, ESPN, and Center Ice NHL Hockey. All that I can think of is that they never ventured up the channel dial to see all the available channels, I believe there are over 800 in total... that is a shame. I give all of our renters my personal cell phone number to call for situations just like this. We should definitely be on top of these issue, but unless we know about it, we don't have a chance to make it right.
