We are a fun loving family of 5 from Canada who love to escape our cold Canadian winters to enjoy the sunshine in Arizona.

TAMMY WATSON purchased this house in 2012

Why TAMMY WATSON chose Arizona

We chose this area because of all the amazing amenities it had at our fingertips. We love the slower paced atmosphere and amazing people. It is a bonus to also be able to fly into such a great small airport like Mesa Gateway Airport. Plus we are a short drive away from great shopping, sporting events and tourist attractions...if we can take time away from the pool!

What makes this house unique

We love the TENNIS Courts here! Along with the golf, swimming, parks, trails, fishing, and more. PLus the local restaurants are some of the best we've been!~ Plus the sunshines everyday!

Swimming Pool Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious, clean, and open to a kitchen well supplied with gadgets and pans for cooking meals. An outdoor area offered shade during the afternoon and tables and chairs for reading, playing games, and, of course, eating. All of the bedrooms featured comfortable mattresses. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this house to anyone interested in a.perfect vacation rental home. The best part for us was the swimming pool, which provided hours of air mattress relaxation. If we had questions or concerns, Tammy was always available and prompt to respond.

Rental 05/31/14 to 06/14/14

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, kid friendly no knick nacks to break and no clutter. Warm decor and very comfortable rooms, beds, and furnishings. The pool was great, warm even in the late evenings, the kids enjoyed it very much and the three year old perfected her swimming. The park across the street was always fun and the rabbits and road runners there only added to my enjoyment and thrilled the kids. They even caught a desert toad to examine and then released. A great time was has by all of us. I really liked having my dog with me so that was a plus. Thanks for the use of your home. We had a great time as my niece was having her fourth baby, a baby boy. Again thanks so very much.

San Tan Valley Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation rental for all ages. We stayed with our three children aged 9, 7 and 5. This is the most relaxing way to spend a vacation with a young family with the pool right there in the backyard. The pool was bigger than the pictures. Nice gradual walk in and shallow area, as well as deeper area. House was exactly as represented. Very much appreciated the various toiletries, cleaners and kitchen supplies and condiments that were provided. We almost never saw a bug. They obviously have pest control well under control. The backyard felt extremely private and the community in general was extremely quiet. Yard was well kept. The home owners were very good to deal with. It was a good hour drive from Phoenix, but we drove in a few times for various sporting events and shopping. Grocery, restaurants, Walmart etc. nearby.

A Great Place at a Reasonable Price!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here with our three sons, their wives, and our grandchildren. The pool was particularly enjoyable! San Tan Valley was farther out than I had realized, but that may actually have helped us spend more time together as a family!

Awesome home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what I enjoyed more, the cool air conditioned, stylish home or the relaxing heated pool and landscaped backyard! Such an easy rental to bring our family too, the kids had plenty of room to play without being underfoot and the adults were able to relax in peace and quiet.

There is a great covered outdoor eating area which make any hot days easy for people who love the heat but prefer to be out of the sun. I also really appreciated all the suggestions and information provided by the hosts, our favourite was definitely the Olive Mill!

Can't wait to book our next family holiday here!
