About Lori Ryser

Hello. Our names are Rick and Lori Ryser. We purchased this home in the winter of 2012. We searched and searched most of the Phoenix area and found Peoria to be the most beautiful, pleasant, centrally located, and the people are very friendly and kind. We are originally from Kodiak Alaska and still reside there for most of the year. Kodiak also known as The Emerald Island is the home of the largest brown bears in the world, the Kodiak Brown Bear! We are the owners of a small construction business called Golden Alaska Excavating. We have two sons and we love to fish, ride ATVs, boating, walking, hiking, and mostly being out doors. If you choose to stay at our home away from home, we hope you enjoy your stay!

Why Lori Ryser chose Peoria

We chose the house because it has all the features of a home away from home that makes you feel like you're in paradise!

Our stay was very pleasant, quiet and restful. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the comfortable chairs. All the necessary daily needs from the kitchen were very adequate.

I would like to mention: The lighting was poor in the family (great) room for reading in the evening. A chair would have been nice in the master bedroom. More face cloths we could have used.

Communication with Lori was swift and agreeable.

Peoria Get Away!

  • 4 of 5

Great spot with all the needed amenities. The view from the house and pool deck was great, beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped. The only 'cons' would be that we were not informed in advance (i.e. before we arrived) that the hot tub couldn't be heated. The hot tub/spa was prominent in the marketing photos, so we felt this was more than a bit deceptive, no available closet in the master bedroom was also a surprise.

Owner's Response: We truly apologize you felt that way. We never intended to deceive you. We promote the setting, ambiance and view of the lake as the main attraction, also changed the main ad photo to promote the lake setting more than the pool. We've added in the notes of the amenities on the site that the spa/pool is not heated so no one else will feel this way. The master closet holds our personal items for when we stay. There is an additional closet in the hall way that can be used if needed. We have put a comment in the description so that is revealed as well. Again, we've never intended to make you feel that way. We are thankful you chose to stay and glad you were able to visit the area.

Peoria paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our first thought walking in the door was " the pictures don't do this house justice." You're greeted with a wall of windows and a view of the pool and the water that you just don't expect to see in Arizona. We found the house to be well furnished with high quality cookware and utensils for preparing meals if you wanted to eat in, yet near plenty of good restaurants for those nights when you want to go out. Access to 101 made getting around town very easy. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return next year.

Spring Training 2013

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 days here to go to Spring training games and the house was perfect for the 4 of us. Every thing that you need is there. We didn't need to bring extra things beside personal items. The location is very close to every thing in the west valley and a short freeway drive to the rest of the Phoenix area. The pictures are accurate but still don't show how Nice the view is from the patio. The owner Lori was very helpful with any questions we had. Thanks Lori!

I would recommend this property to anyone. There are too many restaurants nearby to list. This house is at the Top of the list for next years spring vacation.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

A paradise retreat it is... This property in Peoria was beautiful, we had such a great time. We enjoyed coffee on the patio each morning overlooking the pool and the lake. The home was located very close to the Peoria Sports Complex, making for an easy time watching spring training games. There was convenient shopping and nice restaurants close by as well. The home was well equipped and beautiful and very comfortable. Lori was very easy to work with and so nice and responsive to questions. We have a great time in sunny Peoria.
