Dysart Cactus House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Heated Pool

Looking for a relaxing getaway in beautiful Phoenix close to Spring Training, Hockey and Football? Look no further! This conveniently located 3 bedroom beautiful home is fully furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay for you and your family in the sun. Relax around the beautiful, private heated pool in the day and wind down in the evening with a bbq and drinks around the fireplace table. The pool deck has ample seating: 2 loungers, 2 high top chairs and 4 seats around the fire table in the shade.

The open living room/kitchen area in this rancher has vaulted ceilings, lots of windows and is adjacent to the pool. The layout is easily accessible by everyone, has no stairs and is a perfect space where everyone can hang out together without feeling cramped. You can star gaze at night on the pool patio after putting the kids to bed without worrying about disturbing those who turned in early. There's ample RV parking along the east side of the house as well.

The home has been tastefully decorated with a southwest theme and is meticulously cleaned and maintained - much better than a hotel! Outside, you'll find a beautiful desert landscape with cacti, palms other beautiful vegetation to make your stay extra memorable.

Complimentary high speed wireless internet included in price along with a multimedia entertainment system, 200+ channel TV/PVR's in the living room and master bedroom. Telephone landline available for local calls, so you don't have to use your cellphone minutes.

We have a combination solar/heat pump system for the pool. So, we can turn on the heat pump for you when solar alone is not enough to get the pool to 85 (29c) Nov through March.

We're a 15 min cab ride to the Westgate Entertainment District. Leave your car at home and jump in a taxi for some great restaurant, sports, shopping and entertainment options. Go the opposite direction to get to the White Tank Mountains and Wildlife Word Zoo in 15 mins. Really something here for everyone in the family.

Convenient location for sports fans!

- 4 miles from the Surprise MLB Royals/Rangers Spring Training Facility

- 10 miles to Camelback Ranch LA Dodgers/Chicago White Socks Spring Training

- 9 miles to: The Westgate Entertainment District, the University of Phoenix Stadium, Jobing arena home of the Cardinals & Coyotes.

About Sasha Obad

We are a family of 4 from British Columbia, Canada. I enjoy managing the property myself and have a great team to help me close to the home. If you don't get through to me right away, please leave me a message, send me a text, or an email via the contact owner tab. I will be sure contact you as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to welcoming you to Casa de Toro and a slice of paradise in the desert Southwest.

Sasha Obad purchased this house in 2009

Why Sasha Obad chose Arizona

We love the central location of this property, layout and we added the pool a few years ago for everyone to enjoy - what's the point of fantastic weather unless you can cool off in the pool? It's completely different experience to our home in Canada. We find people in Arizona extremely friendly, welcoming and enjoy the diverse culture.

We only have so many opportunities to vacation in Phoenix as the family also enjoys camping up here in BC in the summer. This leaves us with about a week per year to enjoy the property ourselves. The weather is consistent - unlike home, you can make outdoor plans far in advance without worrying about rain. We like this neighbourhood because it's quiet and conveniently located close to whatever we need.

Exactly What We Wanted

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for anyone going to a game or event in Glendale. Close enough where you could take an Uber if needed and tucked away in a safe neighborhood. Love the pool and TV options for a morning and evening swim. The place was very clean and very simple. I really liked that the owners never had to stop by and it was self managed by us, the guests, like it was our summer home. Would definitely stay here again.

The property was exactly as advertised and made our trip both more comfortable and enjoyable. The location was great and the surrounding area provided all the conveniences of home. It was a wonderful baseball trip and a perfect home away from home for our family.

Thank you for allowing us to stay!

We decided to go with a vacation home bc we have 3 children under the age of 9 and this home was beyond amazing! The BBQ was broke when we got there and I infromed Sasha of it and they had a brand new grill delivered the following day so we had one! They are amazing and met our every need! We totally recommend using them and we will use them again! Again thank you for everything!

Clean, comfortable, and as expected!

  • 4 of 5

I can't say enough positives about the owner - he was a pleasure and a professional throughout the entire process. The house was impeccably clean and had everything we needed, including sufficient air conditioning to keep it cool throughout record breaking Phoenix heat.

Good location for baseball fields in Surprise, Goodyear, and Peoria, although like most of the spread out Phoenix area everything seems to be 20 minutes away! Bonus was watching the fighter jets take off and land while driving by the nearby Air Force base (and noise wasn't a problem at the house).

Only downside was with the peak of the summertime heat (middle of June) the pool is in full sun all day long. With temperatures over 115 it wasn't an appealing option, but I would imagine it would have been perfect in more mild weather.

I would absolutely recommend this house and would consider visiting again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We met my brother and his family in Arizona for a weeks vacation. This house was perfect. It was definitely big enough for 5 adults and a baby. We each had our own "side of the house" so we never felt cramped. The kitchen and living room were open and made for great family time when the temps rose well above 100. The house was clean and had everything we needed (except for groceries of course :-) ). I got up early every morning to run, and felt safe in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the pool, gas grill and lounge chairs. The owners were very responsive and easy to reach!

Great AZ Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly how it is advertised and reviewed, spacious house and awesome pool/outdoor area, overall a great AZ retreat!

I've stayed at a dozen VRBO properties and this was by far the cleanest place I've ever been, kudos to the cleaners.

Sasha is also super responsive and clearly cares about his property and your positive experience as his guest.

Would strongly recommend.

Thanks again, Sasha!!
