Enjoy outdoor living - this backyard feels like a resort! Overhead fans provide a soft breeze and outdoor speakers set the mood for al fresco dining by the pool, with the scent of night-blooming jasmine perfuming the air. Feel free to pick fruit when ripe from the lemon, key lime, mandarin/tangerine and limequat trees.

Located on quiet cul-de-sac near shopping, groceries, entertainment complex and baseball fields (Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals) all less than a 5 minute drive away.

Many thanks to recent guest Ken Meyer for sharing his evening pool photographs!

About Gail Joiner

Owners Gail and Christopher try to get to Arizona as often as possible to get away from the frigid Northeast - when not being used as our family vacation home, we rent out our property for several weeks of the year, and hope that you will appreciate the attention and care we put in to make it a comfortable, luxurious getaway.

Why Gail Joiner chose Litchfield Manor

We love Surprise - it is a beautiful, safe, clean, new community in the greater 'Valley of the Sun', with lots of amenities nearby and within an easy drive of Scottsdale and all that Phoenix has to offer. We were sold on this house as soon as we saw the gorgeous backyard, as well as the spacious open-concept layout inside.

What makes this house unique

Your own pool, spa and waterfall in a luxurious tropical setting - 21 palm trees (7 different species), fruit trees, fragrant jasmine. Just like your own private resort!

Beautiful home and fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our three young sons, along with my parents enjoyed everything this vacation home offers! Located in a nice, quiet neighborhood and the home is exactly like description online. Plenty of room and comfortable beds. Spacious yet comfortable and cozy! Kitchen provides utensils, dinnerware, glasses, etc. so all we had to bring was the food! The sound system plays music outside and inside, which was great! Coming from Minnesota winter, it was wonderful to swim in the heated pool (with pool toys for the kids!) while enjoying the waterfall, or relax in the hot tub under the beautiful palm trees. Having the grill (which worked great!) to cook supper outside in the evening was fantastic as well as how charming the backyard was at night with the solar decorative lanterns and pool lights! The kids loved it! Close to Surprise Stadium, we enjoyed watching spring training baseball! There is a nice park with a big playground nearby within close walking distance. Gail was amazing and quick to communicate. Lots to enjoy about this home...we wanted to freeze time and never go home! :-) Thank you Gail!

Your own private resort

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredibly beautiful and comfortable. It is well equipped and tastefully decorated. Best of all, the back yard is private and designed to be an oasis of tranquility. A large heated pool and whirlpool spa are surrounded by palms and art pieces. There is also a wide variety of outdoor furniture and gas grill so you can maximize your time outside in the sunshine. The neighborhood is quiet, the mattresses are excellent, and the owner is very responsive. We would stay here again in a heartbeat, it's a solid 10!

Awesome Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Surprise. It was our first visit to the area and it was a perfect week. The house is gorgeous - looks just like the pictures. It's a lovely, spacious, open floor plan, and the decor is fabulous. There was more than enough space for m family of four. The pool and spa were wonderful, and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. We felt at home and will make this our vacation rental each time we visit.

Amazing Property-you won't be sorry you rented

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing and it looks exactly like the beautiful pictures online. Very spacious and beautiful view of the pool from the master bedroom and living areas of the home. The pool was the hit of the week and everything was in perfect working order....especially the margarita machine. We spent a few extra dollars over a hotel rental, and we are sure glad we did. If we are ever in the area, we won't hesitate to rent again!
