Why Cornel chose Phoenix

This property is one of the only 45 properties built throughout the Phoenix area.It features an open floor plan, fireplace and large arched living room window which is very special to me and my family.

This property was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying here! The size, layout, amenities and location of the home were perfect for us. The property is very well maintained and stunning. We couldn't have been happier with it! The homeowner was very accommodating and easy to work with. Hands down, the best vacation rental we've stayed at to date.

Just Ok

  • 2 of 5

We rented the property for 1 month Feb. 2016. I will start off with the good things. Good size and good location for our needs.The house was clean upon our arrival.

Seemed to be a safe area and changing over to even a better neighborhood. Cornel is available if you have questions.

The negatives during our stay. The dishware is lacking, and towels are rough and scratchy (Cornel told me to buy some softener) We went and purchased our own towels and sheets.Softener did not work.

Outdoor lounge furniture is lacking cushions again told to use the towels that are scratchy to put on the lounge chairs.

Garbage bins smell like a third world country without good sanitation in place. I was told he ordered new bins did not arrive during our stay refigerator had a damaged shelf Cornel told us to be careful using. The dishwasher soap dispenser was not working properly he told me a part was on order. You have to have a PHD to operate the TV he did try and explain how to use it a few times needs a universal remote that would fix the problem. Furniture was ok not all that comfortable. Master bathroom shower is a step down looks nice a bit unsafe especially if you are older person. Sink and toliet bowl are black again looks cool hard to keep clean. Overall if you are staying a couple of days the place will work fine longer stays not so sure. If you are used to staying in 2-3 star hotels this is a good choice. If you are a 4- 5 star hotel person keep looking.

Sorry Cornel you seem to be a nice guy but your place missed the mark for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your constructive criticism and feedback. I do rely on feedback from guest to monitor and improve the condition of the property. During your stay, many of your complaints were being made for the first time and I tried to address them as best I could during your stay. For instance, I came to the house on at least 4 separate occasions: once to change the water filter on the refrigerator because you complained it was making a weird noise, twice to show you how to use the tv remotes, once to show you how to operate the ceiling fan remotes, and another time to wash the outdoor trash bins because you complained they smelled. But I would also like to address your other complaints. The lid to the dishwasher soap dispenser had a broken latch and would not stay closed, I ordered a new lid and installed it when I changed during one of the trip to your house. I did tell you it does not impact the dishwasher's ability to clean in any way. The outdoor garbage bins provided by the city have also been replaced by the city. I just want to make it clear to other potential guest that you were complaining about the odor from the outside bins, not the inside bins. Further, the TV is on a universal remote, however the cable box is HD and not compatible with the universal remote. Unfortunately, for that reason the living room TV requires two remotes to operate. Detailed instructions on how to use them were in the welcome folder at the house. I also sent you several emails on how to operate the remote as well as came to the house twice and walked your wife through the process. Your remaining complaints about the pool chairs, drop down shower, and black countertops and toilet were all displayed on our website photos that were available for you to view prior to booking the house. Those complaints, as well as the sheets, towels and amount of dish ware, are personal preferences that no other guest has complained about, and which I find to be more than sufficient and/or comfortable. While you might be used to the luxury of 5 star hotels, you were not paying 5 star hotel prices, and my house was never advertised as such. Again, thank you for your feedback, and I hope you have better luck with your next rental.

Everything we expected — and more

  • 5 of 5

From the convenient, yet hidden away location, to the well appointed rooms, our stay was everything we expected — and more. The home is comfortable and attractive with thoughtful touches. Very gracious of the owner to provide a bottle of wine. By the way, there is a separate wine fridge in the kitchen. Highly recommend this rental. Would love to stay longer next time.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently vacationed in Phoenix with my brother and his girlfriend and my parents and their 2 small dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and stay at this house. Cornel was very quick in responding to our questions prior to our stay there and provided recommendations of activities, etc. The neighborhood felt very safe and was quiet. It was also very conveniently located near stores, restaurants, malls, and Scottsdale. The beds were comfortable, the house was well stocked with towels, kitchen tools, laundry detergent, etc. The walled-in yard was great for us especially with the dogs as we were able to let them wander freely outdoors with us without worrying about them getting out. We would definitely stay here again!

Very beautiful home! Worth the trip!

  • 5 of 5

Cornel was VERY accommodating, checked in with us frequently, warmed us about bad weather coming into town, and was very quick to respond to any questions/concerns. The house was absolutely awesome, the pool was great! The house was so cute and had nice décor, EXTREMELY comfortable beds, and an awesome master bathroom. The kitchen is supplied with the essentials and Cornel was nice enough to provide a complementary bottle of wine! If you need somewhere to stay, I would definitely recommend choosing this home, you will not be disappointed! Great for children or just adults, it was clean, nice neighborhood, and the yard was very nice!Will stay here again if we return to the area!
