We just stayed at this property for the month of February. We could not have been more pleased. The owners attention to details is excellent. The kitchen supplies, linens, TV's, cable, wifi, the office in 2nd bedroom, and the bathrooms are all in excellent condition. Decorated very nicely and comfortable furniture. The mattresses were superb and bed linens of the highest quality. The location is near shopping, restaurants, hiking trails, golf, and many more activities. In a very quiet neighborhood and the pool is a nice addition with outdoor seating and dining. If we travel to AZ in the future we will definitely stay here again! A special thank you to Judy who has thought of everything and was so accommodating.

We had a wonderful stay at this property for a 17 nights. We were visiting two of our children who live in the area. Everything we could have thought of and more was provided and appreciated. From office needs to nice pool, beach towels & kitchen supplies. Plus a wonderful welcome surprise. The house is in a great location near restaurants and a short drive to shopping, hiking the mountain trails & other activities. The property description was more than accurate. It is nicely decorated and very well taken care of. A very big Thank You to Judy who thought of everything to make sure our stay was cozy & welcoming. :)

Comfortable by Design

  • 3 of 5

We rented Judy's 2 bedroom, 2 bath duplex in East Phoenix the weekend before Thanksgiving. It's in a great location, probably a little too far west for the Arcadia Lite description but handy to that area and the rest of Phoenix, and far enough off a main street to be quiet. There is one other full time tenant, a pleasant and friendly guy. The pool is shared with him, as are the washer and dryer (so don't plan to do laundry on the weekend, per the schedule - for that reason I can't comment on the laundry facilities). She was very slow in responding to my initial inquiry but was prompt and professional once we connected.

The place is beautifully decorated; the photos here don't do it justice. Kitchen is well equipped; we used it to prepare food for a potluck and then to host lunch for our kids and grandkids the following day and had everything we needed. Be aware that the bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable but very, very high: we honestly had to use the stool (tucked in a drawer at the end of the bed) to get in and out. Both bedrooms and baths have high quality linens.

Everything is scrupulously clean and the decor is very new, it's only been rented a few times. And honestly, that seems to make the owner nervous. She popped in on us twice during the two and a half days we were there, without notice, something I've never experienced in a vacation rental, and that felt a bit intrusive. She did an extensive walk-through (again, something I've not experienced before, but probably a good thing for us), but still needed to wait until her cleaning lady came a few days after we left before she could refund the security deposit (in addition to non-refundable cleaning fee). It was fully refunded after a couple of emails.

All in all, this is a comfortable and convenient rental for a quiet vacation in Phoenix.

Owner's Response: After the neighbor called us to say that approximately 20 people were on the front lawn having Thanksgiving dinner with kids running in and out I decided to drive by. I was not expecting to host 20 people on the newly planted winter grass that was wet. The deposit was returned in full as promptly as possible after our cleaning service checked for any damages other than the carpet that needed cleaning from the grass stains that were brought in from the front lawn.

Winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several Phoenix area vacation rentals and overall like this unit the best. Great location convenient to many attractions, quiet and private, clean and very nicely furnished, and the owner went out of her way to make certain that we had all the amenities we needed to fully enjoy our stay.

We plan to stay here again next year and would recommend this rental to others.

Two weeks and counting...

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two Westies, and I have been enjoying the many amenities, graciousness of our hostess, location to various Phoenix attractions, and activities within walking distance while staying in this comfortable, clean, quiet, and accommodating rental. Coming from Michigan to an unfamiliar area it was such a relief to settle into a rental that accurately described and fulfilled the promises on VBRO. I would highly recommend this property and assure one that it is centrally located for visits to highlighted attractions such as the Heard Museum, Phoenix Zoo, Scottsdale shopping, and many golf courses. We have 3 more weeks here and I wish it was more!!!
