Our Stay in Mesa

  • 3 of 5

We loved the patio and watching the golfers. The home needed a thorough cleaning and de-cluttering. The hot tub was great although there were some problems at the start of our stay. We only ate outside on the patio so can't comment on the dining room and the kitchen counter was not comfortable and too dark for reading the newspaper etc. Once we cleaned and got new bed pillows we had a pleasant and relaxing stay and hated to leave the beautiful

AZ neighborhood.

Owner's Response: I am responding to your review because we are accustomed to only 5 stars as we make a great effort to go above and beyond. Since we were out of the country I did not have the opportunity to check the cleaning crew although we have been very happy with their work. Please tell us what we can do better specifically about cleaning as we were confused when you wrote “the home needed a thorough cleaning” could you let us know what needed to be done. The carpets were professionally cleaned in March and the $9000 hot tub and courtyard remodel were less than a month old when you moved in. Please indicate what needed attention….. Stove Refrigerator Floors Towels Bed linens Toilets Showers Dusting Windows Other (specify) We offered to swap out our dryer, but you were willing to “live with it” until we got back. We have since put in another washer and dryer. Bobbi I am adding to my wife’s response. We have also replaced the stools at the kitchen bar, and will redirect the lights so it will be easier to read at the counter. As my wife mentioned, we are used to receiving 5 star reviews. Yours was the first 3 star review we have received. Frank and Myra were quite shocked when I told them of you rating and your comments about cleaning. Frank assured me they spent a solid 3 hours cleaning before your arrival, and it would be helpful to know exactly where we may have fallen short. I have only given one 3 star rating to another owner where we stayed because pictures on the website were deceiving and the house had minimal kitchen supplies (and no toilet paper!). The owner was also indifferent and non communicative. Can you tell me where we may fallen short in that area? We think the pictures on the website of the dining room and the kitchen stools spoke for themselves. Please let us know how we can do better. Steve

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. The owners live next door and were great. Any question or problem we had was taken care of right away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here & would highly recommend it! We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Quiet life with enjoyable distant mountain views

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable home - quality linens and towels, comfortable bed. Easy access to loop roads and local restaurants/grocery store. Safe residential area. Relaxing hot tub, gas fireplace (Jan visit) for evenings and plenty of hummingbirds to enjoy with your am coffee in the rising sun at the front of the home. Stunning desert sunsets. Steve was very accommodating with easy transactions. We will return!

A very nice place to stay in the Mesa area.

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean home well maintained. There is a golf course out the back door if you play golf and there is a putting green on the property to practice up. More important to me the sporting clay range is only 15 minutes away. Very secure neighborhood and very little traffic. Grocery, gasoline, fast food, slow food, shopping are all close. All appliances were in good working order and the kitchen had any cooking utensil you might need. very quiet place , except for the airplanes and that is every where in the Phoenix area, relaxing on the back deck with a book was what I liked.

Last minute booking

  • 4 of 5

After being in an accident in our motorhome and needing lodging immediately but not wanting a hotel, I went on VRBO's site and found Steve's property. He responded immediately and we secured it for the six nights we were to be in town. The location worked out perfectly for where we wanted to be near, The Resort as that's where we spend the winters in our motorhome. The home was comfortable and meet all of our needs. The condiments in the refrigerator and cabinets are a nice touch so you don't have to go buy those things. By the way, loved the tub!

Good experience

  • 4 of 5

The house is located on a golf course and the view was a plus. Seemed to be located near everything we wanted to do. The owner lives right next door so if something needed done they were available. We did not need anything so after welcoming us they stayed out of the way. Home had everything we needed

I would recommend this unit
