Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented many homes since our retirement 15 years ago. We have never wanted to return to any of them until this year. We rented this home for 50 days and we hated to leave when the time came. Before we left we rented it for next February and March. The home is absolutely beautiful and the yard is like sitting in paradise. The landscaping and the views are breathtaking. The home is furnished like a professionally decorated home and it is equipped with absolutely anything we wanted or needed. The clubhouse and pool area were excellent. The golf course was challenging but very enjoyable.

After many phone calls and e-mails to the owners, we feel like we are friends. They responded immediately to our calls and took care of all of our requests and needs. We couldn't have asked for better landlords.

We will definitely return as long as it is in God's plan for us.

Thanks again for your hospitality and for sharing your elegant, beautiful home with us.

Exellent Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a home for a month and it was awesome. The house was beautiful, spotless and had everything we needed for a memorable stay. The owners were attentive, thoughtful and made us feel welcome. We had many e-mails between us, prior to our stay, where all our questions were answered. We loved the hiking, San Tan Flat Restaurant, The Gourd Festival, The Indian Festival, The Olive Mill and more. San Tan Regional Park was super for hiking. We hiked there three times The patio is enclosed by a block wall, which made it very private. The house is located in a large housing development, but was a very quiet neighborhood. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and relatives and would not hesitate to stay there again. It was a very relaxing month in sunny AZ.
