We chose this property because it was listed as a bed and breakfast and pet friendly
This property is 3 buildings around a central yard, like a small apartment complex. We informed the owners of our 2 dogs when reserving, easily done via phone. Upon arrival they told us we would need to keep our dogs on leash at all times so as not to disturb the outside "working cat" that lives on property. We were told this multiple times both verbally and via text message after the owners left on day 2 of our 4 day stay for their own vacation. They left a friend’s mother onsite to manage it while they were gone. We were also informed upon arrival that the VRBO rate does not include breakfast. The pictures show multiple units. We stayed in the Arizona Suite w 2 large bedrms and 1 bath & beautiful polished concrete floors. There’s space for a crib or pack n play in each room. Each bedroom had a desk and chair & large closet. The bed and couch we used were comfortable, though we were also told to keep our dogs off the furniture. We were able to use the internet easily, but didn’t see the pool table, video library or cd/stereo as listed. There were fans in the bedrooms and living room which was nice, as the AC controls were behind a locked box. The remote control for the tv in the living room would only turn the tv on and off, so we had to manually use the dvd player. There were extra sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and a cot available in the unit. The kitchen was stocked with basic supplies, though we had to clean most dishes before using them. The microwave was on top of the fridge. The pool was clean for one day during our stay. After the owners left for their vacation, a tenant, who we were told lives in the unit next to us, played his music loud enough we could hear it over our own tv. He also smoked outside his unit for hours, which drifted into the central yard, though the property is listed as non-smoking only. The property is centrally located as described. We particularly enjoyed the nearby Sun Up Brewhouse which offers multiple excellent homemade beers and root beer in growlers. Walking back for a growler refill was a nice outing for the dogs. Dutch Brothers Coffee was also within walking distance. The employees were very friendly and had excellent coffee. The quiet neighborhood is a mix of private homes, apartments and other rental units like this one. It was convenient to several malls and Nordstrom’s Last Chance, which the owner told us about when we arrived. The owner also let us know the onsite vending machine had several local beers.
