Thank you for the pleasant stay in your home an for the trouble free and first class handling of events. The time we spent in October 2013 in your wonderful house was simply great. When we arrived we felt very comfortable. The house is roomy and lovingly decorated and for Holiday makers also very well organised. The kitchen has everything and one feels very comfortable in the big living room, bedroom with walk-in closet and a nice bathroom. Everything is clean and well looked after. It is wonderful to sit out on the patio either for dining or for just relaxing. You can really relax either in the sun or shade.
Everything you need for self-caterin is available in the nearby supermarkets. You will need a car and this vacation offers shopping, activities, visiting attractions, and then the contrast of the total peace of Terravita Gated Community.
Also we had no problems using the internet in the house.
We would absolutely recommend this home. We found it difficult to leave and will definitely return.
Liebe Familie Schleibach,
wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege nochmals herzlich für den angenehmen Aufenthalt in Ihrem Haus und für die reibungslose und klasse Abwicklung bedanken.
Die zwei Wochen im Oktober 2013, die wir in Ihrem wunderschönen Haus verbrachten, waren einfach toll. Wir fühlten uns auf Anhieb sehr wohl.
Das Haus ist sehr geräumig, ist liebevoll eingerichtet und für Urlauber auch sehr zweckmäßig ausgestattet. Besonders in der Küche fehlt es an nichts.
Man fühlt sich in den großen Schlafzimmern mit den begehbaren Kleiderschränken und den schönen Bädern, der großen offenen Küche und dem gemütlichen Wohnzimmer sehr wohl. Alles ist sauber und tip-top gepflegt.
Herrlich ist es auch, auf der Terrasse zu sitzen. Egal ob zum Essen oder einfach nur zum Faulenzen.
Im Garten kann man sich prima auf den Liegen ausruhen, egal ob in der Sonne oder im Schatten.
Alles was man für die Selbstverpflegung braucht, bekommt man in den nahe gelegenen Supermärkten.
Ein Mietwagen ist allerdings ein Muss. So bietet der Urlaub aber eben die optimale Abwechslung zwischen tollen Aktivitäten, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, wunderschönen Naturerlebnissen und der totalen Ruhe in der Gated Community "Terravita ".
Auch bezüglich des Internets gab es keinerlei Probleme.
Ein Aufenthalt im Haus von Familie Schleibach ist absolut zu empfehlen. Der Abschied viel uns sehr schwer und wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen."
Our Stay was from Feb 1st to the 28th. We had a very pleasant experience in this home. It has all the things included to make your stay comfortable and fun...The location is so handy to grocery stores, shopping and restaurants...The workout facility at Terravita is great. You are close to so many things to do and see.
Again, we thank the Schlebachs for the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home.
This is a lovely open planned property with good comfortable accomodation. Everything is very well kept and in good condition. Beds were very comfortable too! The artwork on the walls features Indian Art and is very interesting and striking to look at.
I have spent several holidays here at diffrenet times of the year. I particularly like the garden, sitting on the patio looking over to the desert and mountains.It's wellstocked with plants that do well in the desert and is carefully tended.
It's not far to walk to some shops although of course easier to take the car when food shopping. There is an intersting selection of shops to spend a few hours browsing and a fun area to have refreshments. Sports facilities are not far away, and we had a splendid tradtional Thanksgiving lunch at the clubhouse the last time we went.
We have had interesting trips to The Grand Canyon, The Painted Desert, Las Vegas, Sedona and Tuscon. Some of these trips entailed a few days away but it was always good to come back. The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful. I would certainly recoomend this property to anyone wanting good quality accommodation in an interesting part of the United States.
