About Susan Madden

Havng grown up in Michigan and lived throughout the US in my hospitality career, I now find myself converted to the southwest desert as a slice of heaven on earth!

Susan Madden purchased this house in 2011

Why Susan Madden chose Arizona

I bought this property in late 2011 and spent 2012 completely renovating it to my very personal specifications with the eventual purpose of retiring to this home. In the meantime I have furnished it and am now excited to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The home is a classic Sun City mid-60's ranch that is so solidly built I didn't touch the outside. Inside it was loaded with potential, so we renovated every detail and now have a completely new house once you step inside the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have really enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. The kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped with everything we needed to fix wonderful meals. The weather has been beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed eating outdoors.

Highly reommended!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Phoenix for seven years now to spend two weeks during Spring training and each time have rented a condo or house for our stay. All have been satisfactory, but usually had their own little negative quirks. This house was the exception. The location near spring training sites, as well as stores/malls/restaurants, the cleanliness and condition of the home, the updated amenities and appliances and the attentiveness of the owner were excellent. It was a great place to stay and next year if we come back to Phoenix we will certainly try to rent it again.

My husband and I enjoyed very much our stay at this rental property in Sun City, AZ

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this rental in Sun City, Arizona was at the height of spring training for baseball. It is located close to several of the ballparks which is very handy. It is a quiet neighborhood and the streets around aren't very busy. The grocery store is close by and easy to get to. We enjoyed the ease in getting to the biking, walking and/or running path which goes for miles.

The owner is very accommodating and will work with you as much as possible with any date changes, if necessary. I had told her about a large family gathering I was having while there and she made sure that I had a full propane tank for the BBQ.

I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Beautiful recently renovated home with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect home for myself and my 3 dogs while staying in Sun City. The home is very comfortable with a new secure fence for the canines. Susan was very organized and provided a visitors manual to provide information about Sun City and the amenities of the surrounding area. The house was very clean and newly updated. I felt as if I was in a 5 star hotel. Everything for a extended visit is provided in the home and it is a great location to shopping and activities in the Peoria - Phoenix area. It is close to hi way 101 for easy and quick access to other areas in the metro Phoenix area. Susan is a very gracious property owner and very accommodating if you have questions during your stay.

Renters Beware!

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I rented this home (yes, it is nicely decorated) for 8 nights, in December of 2015. We had a wonderful time until the owner texted us, after we left, with the accusation that we had cracked the shower door! Of course we knew that we hadn't done this (we assume the cleaning service bumped into it during cleaning) and blamed us. Anyway, the owner finally admitted that we were NOT at fault and refunded our deposit - after waiting for three weeks! THEN, nearly four weeks after our departure, she informed us that she was deducting $43.43 for a sculpture that we "stole" and replaced it with a silver glass vase! We are professional people in our late 60's and can certainly afford one of these sculptures IF we wanted one! She still insists that we took it - this is SO unbelievable! We are disputing the charge with our credit card company. IF you are so brave to rent from her, INSIST on a walk through before and after your stay. Otherwise, she will scam you next! She definately has a trust issue - STAY AWAY!

Owner's Response: I am most grateful to Janet for taking the time to review my home and the kind comments she posted on VRBO along with her rave reviews left in my guestbook. First and foremost, my goal is to provide guests with a comfortable and memorable experience, which requires an immaculate and well maintained home. Regretfully, there was damage to the home that required investigation prior to refunding the damage deposit. As a VRBO owner I take great pride in exceeding my guest's expectations, as previous reviews will indicate.
