About Mai Do-Galvan

We are a couple in our 40s and live in San Diego. My husband grew up in Yuma.

We are professional property owners and have enjoyed renting to guests from all over the US, as well as foreign countries including France, Israel, Canada and the UK.

We had another home listed - it was a luxury rental in Canyon Lake, CA (Listing 186553) with over 40 five star reviews on VRBO. That property was sold in 2014.

We have been renting our other Hacienda home in Yuma since 2009 and due to high demand, we decided to buy another vacation rental property.

Mai Do-Galvan purchased this house in 2005

Why Mai Do-Galvan chose Yuma

It was all by chance... We were actually looking and inquiring about an empty lot in front of this property for investment and had no intentions of buying another house. The owner persuaded us to take a look at his home for sale and we reluctantly agreed. The moment we stepped in, we fell in love with it, we knew we could not pass this up. We signed the papers within a couple of weeks and bought the house with all its content including a red convertible sports car. It was unreal.

We have made it ours since, and our family, friends and neighbors have enjoyed numerous stays on this property over the years for boating/river trips nearby The Hidden Shores Resort (25 minutes). Times have changed, we had our first child a few years ago, and friends/family got busy so we dont make it out here as much and now decided to open it up to the public to enjoy. We know you will find this retreat as special as we do!

If we go back to Yuma, we will be staying again.

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and beautiful. Plenty of seating inside and outside. The kids living room was great for kids to stay. There was alot of nick nacks some of which needed to be picked up so the kids left them alone but added a home feeling to the house. The sheets made me come home and search for sheets that soft. The pool was good temperature and clean.

It was hard to find and we got lost, definitely as for directions from the homeowners and dont trust your maps.

We stayed here for five nights to visit our Marine. The house is very close to the base and everything else we needed. Mai was extremely helpful and only a text away. We traveled across the country from the east coast so by the time we arrived we were more than ready to unwind and relax. This house was almost too relaxing haha! The beds were beyond comfortable, I never wanted to get out. We swam in the pool in the morning and than again after dinner. When it was too hot to go out in the afternoon we took naps and watched movies. The house is very quiet, which is nice! We enjoyed the hummingbirds in the center courtyard. One day there was at least 2 dozen! Seeing the geckos and the occasional roadrunner was fun. This house was well stocked and by far the best VRBO we've ever stayed in! Will definitely come back! Thank you!!!

A Family Vacation To Cherish. "One Of A Kind Hacienda" Is An Understatement

  • 5 of 5

June 5, 2017 thru June 14, 2017 are dates that my family and I will long remember thanks to Mai sharing this luxurious vacation home. There was plenty of room to play, swim, nap, dine, lounge, tan, and entertain. I enjoyed having the pool to myself early mornings but once the youngin's woke up, you can forget the 'quiet time'. With the bright Arizona sun, we limited them to only a few hours of pool time during the day but after sunset, all bets were off. Many nights they were still splashing when we called them out at 11 pm. Having no neighbors nearby, whoops, squeals, and splashing bodies were not a problem. There is plenty of seating around the pool and the humming birds were frequent visitors to that area's bubbling fountain.

This home is so sound proof and beds so comfortable that I had no problem sleeping 7 - 8 hours each night. The master bedroom's sliding glass doors the master bath exits to a large private walled patio. The sliding glass doors in bedrooms 2 & 3 exit to the pool area.

Although I'm 'The man of the house' my favorite daytime room was the kitchen where I prepared breakfast every morning for eight saving us a bundle. The large side by side refrigerator / freezer and counter space allowed me plenty of room to prepare.

The attached two car garage was a big plus shielding our vehicles from the AZ Sun.

Mai's quick responses to my concerns and questions helped make our stay unforgettable.

If the Lord tarries for a couple more years, I'm hoping to make more memories at this beautiful property in Yuma, AZ.
