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.

Loved it so much I didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a lot of private home rentals and this is one of my favorites! it is clean, well maintained and has a truly wonderful pool and backyard. The koi pond and waterfall is relaxing. The pool is refreshing, nicely decorated and large enough to swim in for hours. The house is comfortable, with open floor plan kitchen. The house was minutes from our training facility and close to many restaurants, shopping and highways. This is my 2nd stay at the home and I'd rebook any time I need to go to the Phoenix area! I highly recommend this home.

Very nice property and owners.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Pool was great but it was too hot to try the hot tub. The grandkids had a lot of fun in the pool and enjoyed feeding the koi. The kitchen was well stocked as well as the rest of the house. Can't miss with this property. Thanks to Paul and Jan for sharing their wonderful home.

Jan and Paul have a wonderful home and everything was perfect while staying in Glendale. This home lives up to its listing on VRBO in every way. Tanya was very accessible and responsive with questions we had while staying at the house. Communication with owners and agent was excellent. The house was clean and the amenities made our stay very comfortable. The backyard is indeed an oasis. We loved our time in Glendale and we would love to stay there again.

Oasis in the Desert...and a Marvously Decorated Home to Match

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Paul and Jan's home in Glendale with a roommate while I was at a conference nearby at the Thunderbird Center (5 minutes from the house!). The pictures cannot display the level of high quality, comfort and beauty of this home. In addition to the relaxing pool, there is a lovely koi pond, a fire pit outdoors and a hummingbird feeder area that draws many birds. The house is quiet at night, in a lovely well maintained subdivision and the local manager is responsive and warm. The pool temperature was perfect, and the hot tub was warm enough that my cold blooded roommate could warm up when she got to chilly from the pool.(The pool was warm, she chills easily.) The built in table in the pool allowed us to set drinks and food down while we relaxed in the water.

The kitchen is spacious and well appointed and we were able to cook our meals easily. The two bathrooms are both clean and the master bedroom has a HUGE walk in closet, HUGE walk in shower and a private door out to the patio/pool.

This house would be perfect for a family with children, two couples or three adults/couples (two queen size beds and one room with two singles). There are ample beach towels, bath towels, plates, dishes, wine glasses, pots, pans and even hotel shampoo, conditioner and lotion! The decor is Western and sports solid wood furniture, with two recliners and a sofa recliner int he living room. The kitchen is huge and we loved the open floor plan. It is a perfect house for just staying at home and relaxing, and yet close to major highways and attractions.

We enjoyed our stay and have already booked our next trip back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. We are happy you could enjoy our home away from home. We get the same feelings about the house. We just don't get to come there very much. It really is a treasure. We are so glad you get to return. Thank you. Jan and Paul

Desert Escape

  • 5 of 5

Going to the desert in the summer when the temperature is 110? No problem - this is the home for you! The backyard of this home with the pool, waterfall, koi pond, covered patio and misters was even enjoyable in the summer heat. Not sure what the kids enjoyed more: swimming or feeding the Koi. The home itself is VERY clean, well equipped and the open layout provides plenty of space to relax and enjoy. Close to the 101 loop which makes access to both the west and east valley easy. Dealing with the owners and property manager was a breeze, even checked in with us during the stay to see if we needed anything. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a great time in spite of the heat. Living in Minnesota we have a hard time understanding the heat in AZ. We love it when we get to go. Usually in the fall, spring and winter. Please come back again. Jan and Paul

Perfect Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Phoenix and this wonderful house was the perfect "home away from home" while we spent time with our granddaughter. The pool was the place to be during the heat wave taking place while we were there. It was very clean and this property was everything we could have wanted. We would recommend it to anyone and would love to return someday.
