We moved to Arizona in 2002 and love this area so much that we want to share it with all who visit.One of the best ways to do this is to provide a very comfortable home-away-from-home for our guests. We hope you come to love Arizona as much as we do.
Owners: Dave and Linda Leach purchased this condo in 2012
A good friend of ours is a professional decorator, and she offered her services as we furnished this space. We are very grateful for her and think you'll agree she did a fantastic job.
We enjoyed everything about our stay in this condominium. David and Linda Leach are excellent hosts, very thorough in explaining everything about the condo and informing us about many of the attractions in the immediate area as well as throughout the greater Phoenix area.
The condo itself is newly decorated, and well-outfitted to meet all of our needs, from its well-organized kitchen to the comfortable living room and enclosed sun-room for our relaxation when not taking day trips to many attractions in the area. Some much-appreciated amenities included a king size bed featuring dual sleep number mattress firmness control, compact laundry washer and dryer in the bathroom, big-screen HDTV with Dish Network service, and a WiFi network for our internet communications.
We found the condo to be very conveniently located near the AZ 202 Loop and U.S. (60 the Superstition Freeway), enabling us to travel to such places as Saguaro Lake, Tortilla Flat, Bryce Thompson Arboretum, Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, Fountain Hills, Rio Verde, Cave Creek and Carefree and back in the same day.
All in all, the hospitality of David and Linda and their care in designing this condo for the comfort of their guests deserves a five-star rating. We would recommend this condo to any of our relatives or friends who plan to vacation in the greater Phoenix area.
We always enjoy staying in one of Dave and Linda's condos in Sun Valley Villas. After three years staying there we know the area and where everything is located. This year we stayed in the one bedroom condo. Dave and Linda provide everything you need to be comfortable in their condos. We especially like the king sleep number bed and all the equipment in the kitchen. I cook like we are at home which includes baking and a few larger meals so I am happy to have such a choice in pots and pans and baking utensils. We are avid hikers and this location is really close to Usery Mountain Park and the Tonto National Forest which are our two favourite hiking spots. We are also baseball nuts and the easy access to highway 60 and the 202 loop make getting around the valley fairly easy. We are already booked for next March and looking forward to it. Dave and Linda are there immediately if there is any problem and it is always fixed right away. Thanks Dave and Linda for being such good property owners.
This was the first time we had rented a condo even though we had been to Arizona the last 2 years. David met us at the condo and showed us around. It was as described on the website.There is a book that helped with the rules of the condo and other important information about the area. There had been an issue with bees on the balcony but Dave took action in a timely manner. Other vacationers in the complex were very welcoming and informed us of the activities available. This was an R & R vacation and we enjoyed it.
We would like to come back to this complex, however this condo is not available for next year.
Thank you David and Linda for giving us the opportunity to experience VRBO.
Don V. and Lori T.
Again Dave and Linda make me feel so welcome from New Zealand on every visit. As long as I book early and the condo is available to me I will keep staying there every visit. Once again thanks for having me and look forward to next year. Thanks Belinda
We were so pleased with the location, and owners of our stay! They were very helpful as we prepared for our visit. Nice location, easy access to all in Mesa. The condo was just as shown, and had all to make it very much like home! We hope to be back!
Dave and Linda have always made me feel welcome every year. I now tell my friends the condo is my home away from home. I am so glad I found them and their condos a couple years ago. It is much better then staying in a hotel. It is very central for me and close to food and shops. Once again thank you for having me Dave and Linda. Cheers Belinda
The house was very clean, confortable, there was everything you can need, the owner are very kind and lovely.
We wold recommend this apartment to everybody!
In addition to the sights of Mesa (the hiking, museum, library, theatres), your trip to Arizona must include a trip to scenic Sedona, known world wide for the beauty of its red rocks, unusually shaped mountains, water falls, Pink Jeep Tours. During the winter months you can enjoy the warm days and cool nights of the desert. But after a 2-hour drive north, you can be in the high country to enjoy all the snow your heart desires. Up in Flagstaff, don't miss the Lowell Observatory, where the (former) planet Pluto was discovered. There's beautiful forests, skiing, hiking, restaurants and quaint shoppes to enjoy. Then, when you're done, turn back to home and be in a tee-shirt and shorts in the afternoon.
For the more adventuresome, and closer to home, travel east on the famous Apache Trail for incredible scenes of rocky formations, canyons, mountain lakes, desert plants and so much more. For the real adventurer, make sure you travel through Fish Creek Hill, which will make the wildest roller coaster ride seem tame.
