About Kitty Harrington

We came to this beautiful area with it's hometown welcome to raise our family. This area has been good to us. When our children became grown we wanted to share with others what they got a taste of. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world letting them share what they want to see and do in our area. I try to turn them to their interests, if it be sight seeing, hiking , horseback riding , the arts , history or whatever tickles their fancy.

Kitty Harrington purchased this house in 1992

Why Kitty Harrington chose Arizona

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION This home is centrally located to many sights being close to highways to jump onto to vist the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Jerome and much more We are constantly improving on the property for our guests enjoyment. Even though it has grown immensely in these 20+ years the area we pride ourselves in keeping its heritage of ranching. We have a dark skies to view the starry nights, with acreage not houses on top of each other , this lends to privacy. We have multiple golf courses nearby for the professional or the novice.Private jacuzzi and spa Our reviews from our guests tell us that we have let them feel at home.with all their needs been met.The home has been remodeled in 2002 with constant improvements always being done

What makes this house unique

Most of our guests have told us what they have enjoyed, to list a few is, the home is private they enjoy relaxing in the hot tub. That the little things in the kitchen that other homes have not had this one did. They appreciate the country setting with watching the quail play in the yard. That the home is well maintained.

Next is being Centrally located for all the major sites. Grand Canyon, Jerome, Sedona, Archeological sites. Quiet and secluded . The private jacuzzi and sauna room, the outside fireplace to sit out and watch the starry skies.

Beautiful Country Property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a family trip. The back patio has the most awesome view of rolling hillsides reminiscent of a Hemingway novel. The place has enough room for the entire family with 3 big comfy beds. The hot tub is huge and the dry sauna is nice. There's plums in the front yard and it's just outside of the city. So you're close to everything, but far enough removed to feel a little freedom. This place is sweet.

Good for Family but Overwhelming Number of Rules

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here in May. The house was an unusual layout, with much of it built on as additions. However, the setup worked very well for our whole family (grandparents, grown kids, and a couple grandkids). The property was quiet. The hot tub was a hit for the youngest, while the backyard was a hit for the adults to sit in the peace and quiet at night. The price was right, and we were able to enjoy cooking our own meals and eating together, as well as playing card games on the back patio. The bedroom my husband and I stayed in had no curtains, just patterned transparent shades, and anyone could have seen in from the outside yard. We were a little concerned since the guest book provided upon arrival said that someone comes and regularly waters outside. Thankfully no one did while we were inside the home, to our knowledge. (The transparent shades also meant we woke up as soon as the sun came up and flooded the room with light.)

The main issue that any guests should be made aware of was the overwhelmingly large binder of rules and item conditions that guests must sign off on upon arrival, and this is not something you can just read through in a couple minutes. This made us paranoid and made the trip less relaxing and enjoyable. Every single item that has ever existed in the home (including cleaning rags!) was listed with an estimated price, notifying the guests that should any items be found in a condition or number other than what is listed in the rule book, these would be the charges. The binder was unorganized and inconsistent and had the entire history of what had been in the home or been replaced, so that it was impossible to really identify or make sense of what the current condition/count/cost of items even was. We have stayed in other VRBO properties, and while rules are always included and expectations should be that you will pay for anything significant you break or ruin, this was simply over the top and left us feeling like we were walking on egg shells all weekend. I believe that owners who are this protective of their homes should maybe not be VRBO owners.

We didn't have any issues with being charged for anything by the owners, but I think it's important to let potential guests know of this. It was unusual and uncomfortable, leaving us feeling a little tense. Besides this, we really did enjoy our time in this property and it accommodated us all well. Close to Prescott but away from the busyness.

Owner's Response: Greetings Greg and family, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. All our guests input helps us improve the experience that our guest have, as it appears your overall experience seems to be. Per comments left by previous guest we had already corrected the home with privacy blinds and simplified so that instructions to home are not coming across as rules.. So we can ensure that while remarkable hospitality, service and cleanliness are our top priorities we do have every guest walk thru the home to ensure all is cleaned and in working order so that your vacation can be hopefully without incident. Guest appreciate that we keep records of condition and maintenance of the home and that are not held responsible for someone else damage as you stated you appreciated you received in a very timely manner your full deposit. Best Regards

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Buyer beware. Pictures are very deceiving. For 14 years I have been finding homes in the Phoenix area. Very nice homes. After losing 2 sisters in 7 months we decided to go outside of Phoenix. After checking in I spent the next several hours looking for another house in Phoenix. I couldn't find anything. This place is so bad I cried. The furniture is so dirty it smells. The room with the white curtains. Is a built on porch. There are no curtains, shades - nothing. The master, especially the bath is more like a closet. And good luck getting hot water. We never cooked, ate or used more than a glass or some silverware. What an awful 15th reunion with my 1 remaining sister.

Owner's Response: We try to accommodate all our guests in a safe and clean environment, To accomplish this we have the home professionally cleaned between guests with also a regular scheduled, or as needed, cleaning of walls,rugs furniture etc. We leave our maintenance record with each guest to sign off that all appliances,electronics are working and the home is clean on arrival. We ask our guest to reach out to us if there is a problem and leave them ways to contact us 24/7. Some things we cannot change as our average size Master bedroom of 250 square feet,but as for other things we can. As this guest waited almost 10 months to provide feedback, we were not able to correct any issues there may have been being that we were unaware. Otherwise we would of been happy to correct anything to make their stay more comfortable

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome trip. We were immediately comfortable. My parents found out later they were able to meet us there n Kitty was wonderful at adjusting and going with the flow. She was informative and helpful she puts effort into thinking ahead of your visit. She's a text message or phone call away if you need any little thing (within reason I'm sure ☺️) but I needed baking powder and her husband was over 30seconds later... The satellite cable went out n he was right there and made a friend with my little girl with his magic card tricks. The property is cozy and there are beautiful views in the morning n evening lovely outdoor comforts we would absolutely return

Quiet, good views, but to many rules.

  • 3 of 5

This home is quiet, spacious, and the views are wonderful. The agreement I signed did not prepare me for all the rules in the house. Example: Candles are all over the house and posted instructions in every room saying don’t burn candles. Someone caught the stove on fire using the broiler so no one is allowed to use the broiler on the new stove and a bowl of burnt stove knobs is sitting on the counter. There is a two inch binder in the kitchen with a ton of rules and instructions as well as a list of everything in the house and a price. There are instructions in each room as well. It personally made me uncomfortable.

Day 5 the toilet broke when flushed and the swamp cooler belt burned out. Three nice men came over to fix it. My son told one of them about a shelf in the bathroom that was coming off the wall. None of us had touched the shelf. The house had golden beetles and my 9 ½ lb Yorkipoo went after them and two places in one of the foam pads under a carpet was scratched up (pieces did get scratched out). I looked up pads on line and they were very cheap and I figured she would take it out of my fee for the dog or deposit and she did not charge me for it. This is the email she sent me.

“I hope you enjoyed your stay at my home. Upon your leaving we found the home clean but a few things that needed attention, some homes need a little more tender loving care : the carpet pad in the green room was dug into by dog ( found pieces thru the house), shelf in master bedroom had to rebuild brace in wall pulled molly out , replaced broken handle on toilet, door in master bedroom has a crack, I am not charging you for these repairs I would like to invite you to review your stay and help me understand what you liked.”

With the exception of the foam pad under the rug, none of the rest should have even been mentioned. The shelf was already falling off before we got there. Should never have been installed using a molly. A piece of plastic broke inside the toilet (not my fault it was a bad design) and they did replace it with a much sturdier version. Door with a crack was obviously badly repaired before and and maybe just painted over. No one was slamming or punching doors.
