***Please let us know if you have pets. Pets (dogs only) are welcome to stay here, but we do require that you have a place to keep your pet (i.e. dog crate, pet carrier, etc.) while you may be away from the house. A per pet fee of $40 for up to a week long stay, $125/month applies. Guests are still responsible for picking up after their pet. Additional cleaning fees may be charged for pet messes left behind.
**Note: Swimming pool is not normally heated. Children's pool is overflow style into the pool (see photos), so pools always have similar temperatures and can't be heated separately.
There is a pool heater attached to the pool system. If you wish to request the heated pool option (available for stays of 7 days or longer), fuel needs to be ordered in advance. Guests requesting pool heat are responsible for fuel costs ($100 minimum, held back from damage deposit after departure) as well as a $100 setup fee (charged at booking time). Please let us know at booking time if you are interested in the heated pool option, and please read “Proper expectations for pool heat” (below).
Proper expectations for pool heat: Use of a pool heater for an outdoor pool is designed to extend the normal swimming season by a few weeks (recommended ONLY in April, May, and till mid-November). Using a pool heater in colder months tends to require excessive fuel cost, because cold desert night temperatures cause water to lose heat very quickly. Pool heat is unnecessary from late-May through September. Instructions on how to use the pool heater will be provided, if you have requested the pool heat option and paid the setup fee. Please keep in mind that pool heater may require up to a full day (maybe more, maybe less) to heat the pool to your desired temperature. Fuel is stored in propane tanks (outdoors, near the pool equipment) which could run empty during your stay depending on pool heater and gas BBQ usage. In such cases the fuel delivery company will refill tanks as quickly as possible for your continued use. Refilling all 4 propane tanks usually costs about $400 in fuel.
***Note: We have many guests staying with us that are moving to the area and may be in search of a new home. If you need any help with that, Jon is a licensed agent in Arizona. Please let us know if you need assistance finding a property to meet your needs.
If you are coming to Phoenix to explore the city, a quick drive will get you almost anywhere in the city. We are happy to help you plan your adventures if you would like suggestions. From white water rafting and trapeze lessons, to wine tastings or museums, we have found a lot of fun things to do in the phoenix area!
From the house to local attractions we are:
- Downtown Chandler: 5-10 min.
- Tempe (Arizona State University, Mill Avenue): 15-20 min.
- Old Town Scottsdale (bars, restaurants, shopping): 20-25 min.
- Downtown Phoenix (NBA and MLB games, museums): 25-35 min.
- Westgate (Cardinals stadium, Coyotes hockey arena, mall shopping): 40-45 min.
If your trip is more adventure focused, the home is located on the Ocotillo golf course and approximately 15 minutes from great mountain biking and hiking in south mountain park.
Please note, because phoenix is so spread out, we advise having a vehicle if you stay with us. Public transportation is not far away from our home, but it takes a while to get to most parts of the city from the home.
When booking, please let us know how many guests will be in your party as well as how many vehicles you will have on-site, as well as the nature of your visit. With that info we can make sure the home is ready for your group and that you have all the necessary supplies, linens, etc. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to hearing from you!
