About Paul Larson and Jan Ruppert

Paul and Jan grew up in Minnesota. We both lost our spouses to disease and when we got married our family became very large. This home is beautiful with lots of room for our family to come and visit. Eventually we would like to get away from the harsh Minnesota winters. It will be a few years before we can take full advantage of this. This is why we are renting it out so others can enjoy our home away from home. The back yard is a sun seekers paradise. You can relax and enjoy the heated pool or spa or just sit by the pond and watch the koi fish. The inside is so comfortable and inviting to just hang out. The sound system is really great. We love the location. It is located in a quiet neighborhood of single family homes. There is miles of walking, biking trails at the end of the block.

Paul Larson and Jan Ruppert purchased this house in 2013

Why Paul Larson and Jan Ruppert chose Arizona

The location to all the sporting events was one of our reasons for buying this property. The beautiful back yard and hiking and biking trails . Every thing is right at our finger tips.

What makes this house unique

The misting system over the patio in the summer cools the patio down 30 degrees. In the pool is a table and umbrella to sip drinks in the water. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open and spacious.

Great location and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location on the north part of Phoenix. Easy access to the 101 but in a quiet, residential area, close to a great walking/biking path. The house is exceptionally clean and well equipped. Great open layout. The backyard is beautiful, definitely the "Tranquil Oasis" that is advertised. The hot tub was wonderful, but we did have a problem with the heated pool that was addressed by the owners. Be aware that the daily fee for having the pool heated only gives you 8 hours of heating time. The owner has it set from 9 am to 5 pm, which did not accommodate our schedule since we wanted to use it in the evening. He quickly adjusted the times with his local pool maintenance tech, so be sure to make him aware of the times that work best for you. Unfortunately a sensor and the heater went out at the beginning of our stay so we actually didn't get to enjoy the heated pool till the last 2 days which was disappointing but was something that was out of the owner's control. He immediately offered a full refund of the pool heating fee. Great customer service and a wonderful place to stay.

Wow...! Just as described on the website.

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying in Arizona twice a year for the last 10 years. Have yet to find the spot I will return to until now. I used all the amenities at the house and they were just as described on the website. The house was very clean and very comfortable also well-stocked kitchen. I was amazed at how many spices and food preparation amenities were in the kitchen. It was going to be just me and my kids until the rest of the family stop by for a visit and then there was an instant change of plans where we were going to have Thanksgiving dinner. You guessed it they were blown away by the place. Paul and Jan are very responsive owners of this home answered every question immediately via email. The hot tub was at a perfect 102° the swimming pool was perfect for swimming it was approximately 78°, the barbecue work nicely and it was Used almost every night even for Thanksgiving dinner. The koi fish were fun to feed ,this place is very relaxing I spent most of my time in the backyard. Close to shopping and golf courses easy access from the freeways. It met my expectations and I will be staying there many more times thanks again Paul and Jan for the very nice stay. I only have one complaint and it's probably personal opinion but I would upgrade the coffee brewing system to a K -cup or a pod system thankfully my mom lives 10 minutes away and we brought her Keurig over for making coffee. I have a Starbucks Verismo brewing system I am not a fan of drip coffee anymore.

'Ohana Time

  • 5 of 5

My son recently graduated and my 'ohana (family) and I flew to Arizona to attend. The home was perfect for all of us to stay together and be comfortable. Everyone, from the youngest (9) to the eldest (79), were happy with the accommodations. The only problem we had was that we were so busy that we did not have more time to enjoy the house. Paul and Jan responded to my emails very quickly! I highly recommend this home and would definitely request to return again.

Lovely home beautiful landscaping

  • 5 of 5

Everything was good. Very clean. Didn't notice until I thought about it later, nice an quiet neighborhood. Your hot pool was too hot to use. We should have mentioned when the big pool wasn't heated which would have let us use it a little more because it was great when heated. Most popular feature was the basketball hoop! The mist system is helpful for those 100 degree days. Beds were comfortable. Thanks for letting us stay.
