About Stella & Alan Ginsberg

We have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1986 when we relocated from New York for Alan's job. He is the general manager of a lighting wholesale company.

I am a 'stay-at-home daughter,' and have been my mother's caregiver since 2008.

We have two beautiful adult daughters, Melissa & Jennifer, who often travel with us. The youngest still lives at home and will be applying to grad schools. Alan and I will be married 34 years in August!


It has been 3 years since we bought the house. Our guests have been wonderful. They have enjoyed their stay in our home and taken very good care of it. The experience has been very rewarding. We continue to add items, some folks have done so too and we appreciate it. We have also made some improvements such as painting, refinishing the patio floor and the upstairs balcony.

On a more personal note, Alan and I will be married 37 years in August! Our oldest daughter, Melissa, got married July 2013. The youngest, Jennifer, is now in DPT school. She is on her first internship at a hospital in Las Vegas. We just visited her last weekend.

Stella & Alan Ginsberg purchased this house in 2012

Why Stella & Alan Ginsberg chose Mesa

We have friends in the area (Chandler, Gilbert, Peoria), and have been visiting frequently. It's both a short plane ride, and a driveable distance from our home in California.

We just purchased this home in March 2012, and went back to get it ready. We were surrounded by handymen, installers and painters for a week, and had to do a lot of shopping. It was tiring but also lots of fun.

We are thinking of eventually retiring here. In the meantime, we will use the home as a vacation home. When we're not enjoying it, we would like to make it available for others to enjoy as if they were at home.

What makes this house unique

We love the desert landscape, the beautiful weather, the views of Superstition Mountains and the fact that spring training is nearby. There are also lots of golf courses, shopping and nature. The neighborhood has a children's (tot) playground, walking trails, and a park with picnic area, basketball courts, and large playground. It is close to the 202 and 60 freeways.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On a recent visit to check things out at the house, I found a sweet little note written by a child. It was in the nightstand of the twin room. There were young children staying in April and in May, so I am not sure who left it, but I wanted to share it. It says:

Have fun here.

It is awesome.

Thank you, whoever wrote the note. We are glad you thought our home was awesome. Hope you had a lot of fun!

Please come back again! Stella & Alan

Wonderful rental experience

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we were expecting and more. Pictures didn't fully prepare us for how nice this house was. My husband and I brought our Moms as an early Christmas gift. The bedrooms were nice, the terrace off the Master was great and gave us some good views of the mountains. Plenty of seating for all of us, between kitchen and dining room tables you can seat 10 for dinner. Double oven was a great bonus. Definitely recommend this rental and will try to book again on my next trip to Mesa.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Lynda. We're so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home and you were pleased with the accommodations. We're glad you enjoyed the terrace. We recently had it redone, but have not had a chance to really try it out ourselves, as every time we're there, we end up doing work in the house when we're not out exploring the area. You were wonderful guests and hope to have you stay with us again when you're back in Mesa. Best regards, Stella & Alan

My two golfing buddies and I (all seniors from Ontario) spent fifteen days here and enjoyed our time and the comfort of this nicely kept home. The location is good for access to lots of courses, and the house was clean, spacious and well-equipped. We were a bit disappointed that the tv did not bring in premium sports and golf channels, but otherwise very satisfied. The pool was too cold to use and we wondered whether a solar blanket would have made a difference. We found a good latino restaurant nearby (Matta's) and had lots of choices for groceries. The owner was very responsive when we had any questions. I would recommend this place for families, seniors or couples. A vehicle is necessary though.

Owner's Response: Terrance, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our home and all the amenities. As for the pool, I made sure to make it clear to you that the pool is not heated. Guests who stay with us during winter months, don't expect to go swimming. If a guest has swimming as a priority, we direct them to a different rental. Generally, those with heated pools charge an additional $200 or more to heat the pool. Regarding our DirecTV, we have over 140 channels. Most folks don't care about having a golf channel. They come to vacation. I'm sorry you were disappointed about that. If we kept adding more channels, we'd have to increase our rates. Our home offers so many other amenities. Anyway, we're glad you were happy for the most part :-) Regards, Stella & Alan

A must stay

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience of my stay was amazing. We had a problem when we first arrived with the pool and it was addressed immediately and rectified by the homeowner. Overall one of the best stays I've experienced

Owner's Response: Dear Milton and family, We appreciate the great review. Thank you for promptly alerting us to the problem with the pool. Luckily, we were able to get Michael out there right away to fix it. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay, and hope to have you back next time your folks come for a visit. Best regards, Stella & Alan

Beautiful Mesa Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the place immensely. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a park nearby where we could walk and enjoy the mornings. The home is nicely kept with everything needed for a weekend stay. Outside there is a well maintained pool and shaded area with lights and fans to keep cool. The kitchen has all the pots and pans, dishes, and pantry items needed to enjoy meals at home. TVs in every bedroom and nice comfortable furniture in the family and living rooms. This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it to anyone who has 4-6 persons in their party. The owners are very responsive too! Thank you Stella and Alan!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Bob & Gail, We are happy that you enjoyed the accommodations and all the amenities. We go back at least twice a year to check things out, resupply and add items that we think guests will enjoy having in their home away from home. It was a pleasure dealing with you, and we hope you will return next time you're in the Mesa area. Best regards, Stella & Alan

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this vacation rental. We have used VRBO homes for the last 10 years across the United States and I can truthfully say, this was the best one. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The house was very clean and well kept with a refreshing pool has an added bonus. The pool has the best child proof gate on it that gave us great peace of mind. We also very much appreciated that the owners were pleasant and easy to work with. Thank you for a very fun weekend! We hope to return soon!

The BEST!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautifully appointed home for 5 days and it was PERFECT for our family!!! Stella and Allen were awesome! They answered all my questions in a timely manner. The home was immaculate and kitchen was well stocked. We had such fun in the pool area and the owners went out of their way to accommodate the kids in every way. They had pool floaties, noodles, special dinnerware/cups for the kids -- it just couldn't have been any better!!! Thank you for making our family gathering so special. We look forward to staying there again!
