Thank you for checking us out! *Please read the entire description as we try to answer the most common questions we get from guests. **Note: We have many guests staying with us that are moving to the area and may be in search of a new home. If you need any help with that, Jon is a licensed agent in Arizona. Please let us know if you need assistance finding a property to meet your needs. This listing is for the entire home including the resort like backyard with pool and lounge area and gas barbecue. The home is 1600 square feet with high vaulted ceilings and new furnishings. All the essentials are provided such as sheets, blankets, towels, bath and shower toiletries and laundry supplies for your entire group. There is off-street parking available for up to 4 cars (2 garaged).

There is a 60' high definition flat panel TV in the main living room and a 42' high definition flat panel TV in the master bedroom. ***Please let us know if you have pets. Pets (dogs only) are welcome to stay here, but we do require that you have a place to keep your pet (i. E. Dog crate, pet carrier, etc. ) while you may be away from the house. A per pet fee of $40 for up to a week long stay, $125/month applies. Guests are still responsible for picking up after their pet. Additional cleaning fees may be charged for pet messes left behind. **** Note: swimming pool is not normally heated or cooled and may take up to 24-36 hours to get up to desired temperature (varies with weather) and because of the heat pump system the pool heater will not operate below outside temperatures of 50 deg. Please let us know at booking time if you are interested in the heated pool (winter months) or cooled pool (summer months) option. Guests requesting this option are responsible for a service fee ($40/night - 1 week minimum) added on to your reservation cost. From the house to local attractions we are: - Downtown Mesa: 5-10 min. - Downtown Chandler: 15-20 min. - Tempe (ASU, Mill Ave): 15-20 min. - Old Town Scottsdale (bars, restaurants, shopping): 15-20 min. - Downtown Phoenix (NBA and MLB games, museums): 30-35 min. - Westgate (Cardinals Stadium, Coyotes hockey arena, mall shopping): 45-50 min. If your trip is more adventure focused, the home is located near the Red Rock Mountain. Sahuaro Lake is not far away as well. If you are going to be travelling around the Southwest after your time in Phoenix, you can feel free to leave bigger bags here and use this as your base. San Diego, LA, Las Vegas, and the beaches of Mexico are all about 5 hours away. The Grand Canyon, Sedona, White Mountains, and AZ's wine country are 2-4 hours. Take your carry-on, and leave the big stuff while you explore. We have been to almost every corner of the state, so if you want to know the hidden treasures, we would be happy to tell you our favorite places to visit. Please note, because Phoenix is so spread out, we advise having a vehicle if you stay with us. Public transportation is not far away from our home, but it takes a while to get to most parts of the city from our home. With a car, we are convenient to most parts of the Valley, including downtown Phoenix (sports, restaurants, and arts), Tempe (shopping, restaurants, nightlife), Glendale (sports and shopping) and Scottsdale (shopping, arts, sports, nightlife). When booking, please let us know how many guests will be in your party as well as how many vehicles you will have on-site, as well as the nature of your visit. With that info we can make sure the home is ready for your group and that you have all the necessary supplies, linens, etc. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!
