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 Dysart Cactus
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.

Great house for relaxing vacation
The house is very spacious and well-kept! The pool kept us very busy, it was definitely heated and clean. The instructions for the home are thorough and informative. Leaving was very difficult for us! Top notch rental!
Great place to stay
My sisters and I were very pleased with our stay in El Mirage. It was about a 45 minutes drive from Phoenix and 15-20 minute to Surprise Stadium. The home was very clean and well stocked with the necessities. The kitchen had lots of: plates; utensils (both cooking and eating); condiments; and cook ware. There were also plenty of towels, pillows and extra blankets. Having a washer and dryer on site was very nice. The covered patio near the pool was our favorite hangout. Unfortunately, it was a bit too cool to swim so we just enjoyed the lovely weather outside. Since we were not familiar with the home security system, we always worried if we had it activated when we left the house. Also the mattress in the smallest room was not good. Overall, it was a great experience and hope to return.
Nice house centrally located easy to find.
Great place to enjoy spring training baseball and relax by the pool. Had a great time with kids and grandkids.
Great Desert Getaway Spot
The house is beautiful and spacious! Plenty of room for a family. The open space between the kitchen and living room make it feel even bigger than it is! Plenty of amenities to be had. Was visiting with family and the house was located very close to them which was great. The house numbers are kinda hard to find so arriving at night it was a little difficult to figure out which house I was staying at. Also, I never did figure out how to turn on the front door walkway lights. Not critical and it didn’t ruin the wonderful experience I had staying here. The manager of the place is super friendly and kind and did a great job helping me with questions and concerns (even during the holiday) so Thanks Sasha! All told if you are looking for a wonderful place to stay in the Surprise/ElMirage areas look no further!
Daryl - thank you very much for the thoughtful review! You're welcome back anytime. Good feedback about the lights and house numbers too, we'll get that fixed up.
Very lovely and clean home. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had.
We would definitely recommend this home.
Very comfortable, close to everything
Everything we needed, loved how responsive and helpful Sasha was when we had a question or concern. Very easy to relax here!
