Description of the Mesa vacation condo rental
Welcome to our Casita! Happy & active snowbirds have been visiting this cozy, quiet loft style unit since 2005. We are very appreciative of the wonderful relationships we have been building with our renters who value the simplicity, quality and affordability of this vacation rental and treat this Casita as their own.

This bright casita has vaulted ceiling and simple Southwestern decor throughout. This sunny corner unit has no one below/above/next to any rooms.

Our Casita is conveniently located in West Mesa where everything is a short drive away. West Mesa's rapid growth brings to us lots of excitements including new Chicago Cubs/ASU stadium, Oakland A's Spring Training, light rail, museums and performing arts. ( Great golf courses and shopping at Riverview are less than 10min away, and Phoenix airport, upscale shopping and dining in Scotsdale, etc. are all less than 20min drive away.

Relax on the down filled chaise by the fireplace and watch some TV, read some books or play one of fun board games while your dinner cooks in the fully equipped kitchen.

Kick back and enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese on the balcony with a view of the swimming pool, or grab the plush bathrobes and beach towels and head to the lighted / heated pool for a few laps or spa before bed.

Watch a movie in bed before ending another exciting day in AZ and wake up refreshed for some breakfast in the sunny kitchen!

Thank you for your interest in our Casita! We hope to welcome you to this warm and cozy vacation rental soon!

Area Information
Mesa is known for good vacation rental but West Mesa is really the place to stay since East Mesa is pretty far from the major attractions. The airport, ASU, great golf courses, award winning performing arts center and museums, shopping and restaurants, Cubs spring training, etc. are all within a short drive.

We also like this particular area within the complex because it's away from the road, quiet, private and by the swimming pool.

Rental: What I loved about the unit was how cheerful and bright each room was. It's a beautiful unit with vaulted ceiling which made the unit seem very roomy. I also appreciated the simple Southwestern Style decor... Kitchen had everything from toaster-oven large enough for medium size pizza, muffin pans, nice silverwares and plates, crock-pot to Wok. At night, we enjoyed watching many movies we rented from nearby Blockbusters while snuggling on the sofa or in bed. The view of the pool with lit up palm trees was very peaceful at night, too. The attached garage was very convenient whenever we had lots of groceries. Location: We thoroughly enjoyed everything AZ has to offer! The major freeways were all 5 to 10min away, stores were just around the corner. We enjoyed various museums, performing arts centers, restaurants, malls all within 10-20min away. We took a day-trip to Grand Canyon, Sedona and enjoyed horse-back riding in Apache Junction. Squaw Peak was only 20min and we hiked up to the top a few times to enjoy the 360 degree view of Phoenix. Owners: Jack and Ayaka were very friendly and prompt whenever we communicated with them. We appreciated their willingness to go extra miles to make us happy :) We would definitely return if we ever have a chance to visit Phoenix!

Beautiful Condo
1001 N Pasadena, Mesa, AZ, 85201, United States (360833)

I have stayed at this condo every April since 2007 and plan to return again for the sixth time in April 2012. It has all the amenities and a 30 foot walk to the pool and hot tub. It is right around the corner from CVS, the supermarket and restaurants. I started travelling to Arizona in April 2005. I stayed in Tempe the first year and Mesa in 2006 at a gated community condo. I was very fortunate to find this amazing condo and would never stay anywhere else. The owner is very pleasant and everything is always immaculate when I arrive. My wife and I look forward to this trip every year. The condo has everything we need and is accessible to anything we could want and it is in a good area, where it is quiet, but yet in a five to eight minute drive you can access the major highways. There is no place better in my opinion. In 2007, my stepdaughter and her boyfriend joined us for a week. There was plenty of room and it was very enjoyable. Lots to do for everyone and all ages right in the area. I highly recommend this condo.

We absolutely love this location. We have already booked return visits for 2013 and 2014. Ayaka is a wonderful landlord, easy to communicate with and genuinely concerned about the comfort of her tenants. This property is within walking distance of grocery, pharmacy, baseball stadium and park for the grandkids to play. It is just a short drive to wonderful restaurants and shopping malls. The location of the condo is fabulous because the smaller, more private pool is just across the drive. Everything you could possibly need is included from all kitchen appliances and utensils to linens. We found the complex to be quiet and friendly. There people of all ages from small children to retirees in their 80s enjoying the larger pool. What a fabulous home away from home for the vacationer. Thanks so much Ayaka!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do at your vacation rental?
A: Our tenants are usually so happy the heated swimming pool/spa is right across the unit.
Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: We feel our unit is truly the best value for your money if you're like, appreciate the simplicity, value the affordability but crave a touch of luxury like down filled sofa with chaise, plush bathrobe and soft towels, value peace, sunny rooms, comfort and cleanliness, we know you will be happy at our Casita :)

We often stay at vacation rentals as well, and feel that the right mixture of simplicity, cleanliness and a touch of luxury is what makes our vacation enjoyable, and try to provide the same to our tenants.
Q: Can you take a day trip to Grand Canyon from your unit?
A: Yes! We recommend leaving early, stopping in Williams for brunch, check our their interesting history, head to Grand Canyon, hit a few view points on the way to the historic El Tover Hotel, then head to the Desert Tower. If you're OK driving at night, stay to watch the unspeakably beautiful sunset, then take 64 back down to Flagstaff, and I-17 back to Phoenix. I-17 is winding downhill for miles. Don't forget to use engine break! FYI, road trips to Sedona, Superstition Mt. Canyon Lake, etc. are also very enjoyable.
