Thanks for everything!
These are wonderful owners; responsive, helpful, professional and very kind. The house is lovely - not too formal but decorated well. It had everything we needed in terms of amenities and storage space. Niceties like wonderful soaps, shampoos and things in the bathrooms and great throw blankets everywhere really added to the experience. The toys for the kids were perfect! The walled patio was very nice, too - fresh oranges as a bonus from the tree! The loft-style bedrooms are cozy but definitely sufficient size-wise, even for a group of three adults and two small children. However, note that it will be noisy, more so than enclosed bedrooms on a single floor. We didn't end up needing to use the sleeper sofa but it could have come in handy. The beds and bedding are wonderful; we have tempur-pedic at home and often "dread the bed" when travelling. Not so here! The location for us was perfect. It is close to tapatio resort where one of us had a conference. It is about a mile to a wonderful park with some great hikes and there is even a playground there and probably more that we didn't get around to seeing. The three pools in the complex are great, one is super close and another not far at all. Everyone is wonderfully friendly that we met, in a comfortable way (lots of canadians :-) ). All kinds of shopping is close by enough, and downtown phoenix and scottsdale are each less than 1/2 hour away. I can't say enough nice things about the owners.
Nicest unit on property!
