"A recent study by New York University found that hotels and resorts collected $2.25 BILLION in surcharges last year. Virtually no hotels disclose the fees in their initial online rate quotes. At best, you have to click to another screen to get the “all-in” price, including the mandatory resort fee; at worst, you don’t find out about it until you check out. Customers also complain that hotels don’t tell them about the fees when they make hotel reservations."

We give you a TOTAL, ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE, up front when we respond to your inquiry. There are no add-ons. 50% is due at time of booking, 50% is due 2 weeks prior to your arrival. The VRBO website will automatically send payment request links to your email. Simple.

About Norman

My wife & I don't get enough sun up here in Seattle during the winter, so we bought this beautiful home so we could 'get our fill'. Our friend Pat lives 2 blocks away from this rental so she is helping us manage it.

Norman purchased this house in 2010

Why Norman chose Surprise

Warmer sunny winters, Surprise Stadium, Surprise Tennis Complex, beautiful golf courses, desert hiking, all short drives away.

What makes this house unique

Sipping coffee in the morning and having breakfast while reading the paper outside by the pool. Going for a walk in the park at sunrise, putting in a good movie in front of the fireplace or sitting outside by the pool and enjoying a glass of wine before bed.

A great experience in Surprise

  • 5 of 5

My family had a terrific stay at Norm's property in Surprise. I traveled with four adults, a three year old and a 9 month old and stayed 5 nights. I found the accommodations terrific for our family, including a crib, strollers and two pack-and-plays. The house was further stocked with sunblock, toiletries, towels and clean dishes. The pool was great, a good size and refreshing as every day was over 100 degrees during our stay. Communication was great through reservation to check-out. Norm went above and beyond and allowed us to borrow a pack-and-play from the house on our last day, even though we were checked out, as were to spend the rest of the with my mother-in-law before our flight out. He didn't have to do that, but it was an extra bit of generosity that made our day a whole lot easier and was much appreciated. Anything to make traveling with two young kids easier is a godsend. Thank you again for the fantastic experience, we will look you up the next time we are in the area!

Excellent rental; everything you need.

Beautiful, well stocked house. The pool is wonderful. Tv's in every room, spacious and clean. We've stayed here two years in a row, and plan to return. The owner and local manager are helpful and easy to work with. I definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave !

  • 4 of 5

There were many things we enjoyed about this home. First of all the beds were very very comfortable with comfortable pillows and linens. It was well stocked with beach towels for the pool, every appliance you could think of and a wonderful grill that I had never seen before but the food was amazing on it. There is plenty of room for all of my grandchildren to come visit and they had a great time in the pool which is heated for cooler days . This home is very family friendly with plenty of things for children and babies such a strollers, toys, crib and playpen. The furniture is all new in all of the bedrooms and the living room furniture is very comfortable. There is plenty of room inside and out for seating. Pat met us on arrival and showed us everything and how to work the heater and different things around the house. We had to call Norm over a very small issue and it was taken care of promptly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

This house was in the perfect location for us to take day trips to the Grand Canyon and Sedona as well as Scottsdale. If we come back to AZ, then we will definitely stay here.
