About Greg & Lili

We are empty Nesters -

We've discovered life's greatest pleasures ...hanging out with each other and the beauty this state offers. With the best hiking, golfing, biking, shopping and best of all great food. Life doesn't get any better!

Greg & Lili purchased this house in 2015

Why Greg & Lili chose Phoenix

Back in 2008 when we first discovered Ahwatukee we never thought we would be able to own such a beautiful little piece of heaven. When we first saw the property amidst all its wild green scene we saw a diamond in the rough. We bought it, loved it, polished it and now ready for y'all to enjoy!

High vaulted Ceilings, flagstone backyard patio, private sparking pool...

The community of the Ahwatukee foothills is special in a way that you can in the night life just minutes away or enjoy a quiet night in our backyard sanctuary.

Our home is minutes away from restaurants, casinos, freeways (I-10) and shopping centers. If your a vegan, in the mood for some Tex-Mex or just want to try something new, you name it we got it within minutes and in some cases walking distance from the house!

We take pride in serving our guest, our home and our community.

What makes this house unique

Our home is centrally located to the wondrous beauty that Phoenix has to offer here is a small sampling of what is close to our home:

Sculling, paddle boarding or just a slow boat ride along our beautiful Tempe Town Lakes.

Day trips to the Aravaipa Creek, Weavers Needle for hiking and the natural beauty.

Or you can walk out the front door and be on a hiking trail within a ten minute walk.

If you're feeling lucky and want to try your hand at blackjack or poker we have several casinos (Wild Horse Pass, Lone Butte, Gila River) within a 20 - minutes drive.

If you're a golfer we have some of the most beautiful courses - many with first-hand knowledge.

If you're into baseball we have Cubs stadium minutes away.

If you're the type of person as I am; I love to have an open feel, so we knocked out a wall and created a jaw dropping scene from the moment you walk into the kitchen from the garage all the way back to the pool in the back yard. Its sunny, inviting, relaxing and absolutely fabulous.

Once your done with your daily adventure come home; pop open a bottle of wine, throw something on the grill and enjoy life in our little private sanctuary we call our back yard. With the calm water falling and soft tunes in the background and people who love you ..... life doesn't get any better!.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The recent home remodel was expertly done, and the home is wonderfully furnished. The private pool in the back and the community pool and hot tub less than a block from the house were great. Last, but not least, our hostess, Lili, was, and remains, an angle

This home was immaculate and the owners did not hesitate to make our stay amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Lili have a gorgeous home that was perfect for my husband and I to be able to relax since we came for medical reasons. It was a place we felt very comfortable in and the home had everything we needed and more. The pool was a bonus for the hot days we endured while in Phoenix as my husband and I are not used to such heat! We must have been in it everyday! We will definitely stay here again, you won't regret renting this home and the owners made it even better staying in touch when we had questions and making sure we had everything we needed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Greg and Lili!! We may be back for Mayo Clinic soon and know where to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you two so much for choosing our home for your stay, we appreciate your kind words and we'd love to have you stay in our home again. More importantly we'd love to have you all stay here without the need of visiting the Mayo clinic and we pray for your speedy recovery. We will insure your subsequent stays are just as positive and will continue to work to make sure we deliver a positive experience each time.

Overrated

  • 4 of 5

This house was absolutely lovely, but I would not recommend it if you're staying with your family (especially children) the house is apparently fragile and you mostly won't get your deposit back if something is "damaged". Owners were lovely until after check out, we needed more soft pillows and within the hour Lilli came over to the house which we thought was very good. The floors upstairs are bamboo so ideally no one should actually stay upstairs because clearly it's meant for show. We ended up using the community pool which was 100 times better than the private pool. The private pool might be better for children but for adults it's like a pond. The gated community is lovely, it is quite far from downtown Phoenix but it's easy if you have a car. I would've liked to write a good review but I will not be recommending this place as there's probably better ones out there

Owner's Response: Manisha, We're sorry that you didn't totally enjoy your stay, however, we do everything possible to ensure all our customers have the best stay possible and up to this point have hit the mark each time. We're accommodating and go above and beyond to make sure each group has a safe, clean and great place to call their temporary home. In order to do that we diligently strive to ensure our home is prepped and readied after each visit for the next customer and were extremely surprised by the care, you and your party did not take regarding the flooring in the property. The flooring is not simply to look at as the entire home is a functioning residence to enjoy by all as we do ourselves at intervals throughout the year in order to ensure it's livability. We have never had to withhold a damage deposit due to damages but in your case, we had to as we are forced to have a contractor come back in and replace part of the flooring that was damaged. As for the pool, unfortunately, the size of the backyard does not allow for a larger pool however as you stated the community pool is an outstanding choice for swimming laps or if you have a larger party that needs to enjoy a pool. Again we're sorry you and your party did not enjoy all aspects of your stay and we appreciate your input as it helps us to better understand what may be needed as we interface with future customers. Greg & Lili

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a getaway for just the two of us - and this home was ideal. Location in Ahwatukee was close to plenty of places to eat, shop and visit. Lili and Greg were very obliging with our questions before and during our stay. We would definitely choose this lovely home again.

Great VRBO rental property in Ahwatukee

  • 5 of 5

Hello Greg and Lili,

We thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home during our short visit in AZ. The house was exactly what we expected. Great remodel, clean and wonderfully appointed. The gated community was beautiful. The club house, pool and lake were just gorgeous!

Our only disappointment was that we could not enjoy the pool area because of the mosquito's. We looked over the fence and noticed that your neighbors pool was full of green algae. We think that is the source of the mosquito hatch.

Thank you again for letting us enjoy your wonderful home.

Sincerely,

Bob and Linda

Owner's Response: Thank you Bob and Linda - I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our home. We love the area and amenities that are so close to us. It's a bit disappointing to hear about our next door neighbor. He's usually very proactive with the upkeep of his home. I'm sorry about the pesky little mosquito's we will be addressing that. Hope to see you again on your future travels. Cheers, Greg and Lili

During your stay you can make it as busy or as laid back as you'd like. We are minutes away from the local night life, casinos, restaurants and sporting events. Yet nestled back enough that it lends itself to a quiet night of constellation watching in the back yard while enjoying your private pool area.

Note: For greater accessibility to all the attractions that Phoenix has to offer Loop 202 formerly know as Pecos Road is getting completed, finishing touches will happen this year (2017).
