About Helen S.

This property was our first venture into the vacation rental business. We purchased the home in 2013 and had it totally renovated inside and out. We aim to provide the same kind of high standards that we ourselves, would expect to find in a vacation rental home. Our many excellent reviews will attest to this.

Our second vacation rental property is in the adjacent gated community. SEE VRBO 617218 for further details.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay in this home-the second time that we have rented from Helen and Bob. As was the case with our previous experience, this home more than met our expectations. Upon arrival, we were met by our host who provided us with a gift basket with some ‘basics’ to get us started such as cereal, cookies, water, fresh fruit and even wine. The house

has all the amenities and is comfortably-and tastefully-furnished. The yard, though small, has been completely re-landscaped and features a nice patio area with a propane barbecue and ample seating. Just down the street is a ‘clubhouse’ with a community pool and exercise room etc. Located with easy access to the 202 freeway and minutes away from 3 top notch golf courses (Longbow-our favorite-, Las Sendas, and Red Mountain). If you are golfers, you couldn’t be in a better spot. The neighborhood- definitely a dog-friendly one- is a mix of retirees, working singles and families with children young and old.

The house is exactly as is shown in the pictures-there are no ‘surprises’ such as those we have heard about from friends in other rentals. You can be confident that ‘what you see is what you get’. We can also guarantee that you will not find friendlier or more accommodating hosts than Helen and Bob.

Beautiful home with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This home is excellently maintained, nicely decorated, and beautifully furnished. It is spotlessly clean and has all the conveniences one needs. The interior was cool during record heat, and the outdoors provides a nice patio for coffee, dining, and grilling. I loved the pretty flowering shrubs and vines in the yard. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the home offers quick access to the 202 and is convenient to stores and restaurants. The owner is a pleasure to work with and prompt in responding to inquiries. I would love to stay here again and again.

One of the best Vacation Rental properties we have stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this property, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Wonderful people to deal with. The place is beautifully decorated and has comfortable beds. They have not forgot one detail with things a person may want or need when staying at there place. They even have folding lawn chairs and a cooler so we could pack a lunch and head to Canyon Lake for the afternoon. They had a hummingbird feeder outside on the patio, I would get up in the morning and make a cup of coffee and enjoy watching the hummingbird zoom around. They also gave us wonderful information on things to do and places we could visit during our stay. If you like kayaking Canyon Lake is beautiful, if you like hiking trails that are close by we enjoyed Usery Mountain , Superstition mountain . We also took a day trip to Sedona and did some hiking there as well. Grocery stores and restaurants are very close.

We have stayed at many vacation rental properties but this is one of my favourites in Mesa. I would give it 5 stars out of 5.

This place is a gem! In a small, gated community in the northeastern corner of Mesa, this very well appointed house (3 BR, 2 bath) is handy to freeways, grocery stores, national forest, and the airport. The owner generously includes a "welcoming package, " renters have access to a small community pool, and the walled backyard has a grill and chairs to enjoy reading and chatting. The owner and her husband are available for repairs or other emergencies. We were delighted!!!
