Reviews for this vacation home rental in Ahwatukee, Arizona
Our third time...and we'll be back.
March 10, 2014
This is the third year that we have rented this place…we love it. It’s perfect for 12 guys on our annual spring golf outing. The mansion is spacious, well maintained and very comfortable, even for 12 people. The location is great, only about 15 minutes from the Phoenix airport and very close to many great golf courses. We’ll be back.

We went to Arizona not knowing what to expect. We were 2 families renting this beautiful property. There were 4 adults, 9 adult children and 1 infant. We had the most amazing time. The property is everything that the vrbo listing ad suggests. We all took turns making dinner in the enormous kitchen which meant we didn't have to go out, which can be difficult with such a large group. To hike you just have to cross the street and you are on the trails of the South Mountain Preserve. We had a question about towels and Dan responded right away and dropped off a batch of new towels. We found the owner to be helpful, trustworthy and responsive to any of our inquiries of needs. The house was so much better than staying at a hotel because we could meet, play games, watch tv all together in either the great room or the media room. Wish I was there right now. . . .
Wow! Rent this property!!

My company rented this property for an executive retreat and conference. WOW! What a property. This home is stunning from the moment you see it from the curb! This home is huge. Dan and Lisa were easy to work with. We had dinner twice at the property using the private chef service and enjoyed the outdoor space every day. We also had a movie night in the theatre room, which accommodated everyone comfortably. Breathtaking views and even spotted some wildlife lurking in the foothills behind the house. Great location and easy to travel to and from the various sightseeing locations. Even though I could have just stayed at the house the entire trip and been happy!! Overall, probably the best property I've had the pleasure to visit!
Beautiful home, great owner!

This is a great property. We rented another property for our annual business retreat, but everything in it was broken (including the pool and hot tub...). We called Dan to see if there was any chance we could do a same day check-in. He responded immediately and worked with us to get in the property right away. He left his friends he was having happy hour with to give us a personal tour and get us settled. He even brought us brand new towels in the morning (our same day check-in didn't allow time for all of the towels in the home to be washed and returned by morning)! Beautiful, safe neighborhood (gated) to stroll around, close to the airport, and many choices for tasty food and groceries within minutes. The salt water pool and hot tub are beautiful! Would definitely rent from Dan again.

This property worked out perfectly for our large family reunion. It’s a great place to meet as a family and the property generously filled all our needs. The house is has a great layout and offers plenty of individual bedroom space, a large kitchen with an island and lots of places for gathering spaces especially poolside. The outside area had plenty of shade and the misters were a nice added touch. All amenities are close by, and when ever we had a question the answer was offered in a timely manner. Dan and his crew exceeded all expectations. Including setting us up with a discount at the near by golf course and restaurant. Can’t wait to visit again.

One of the best weekends ever!
July 27, 2012
My friends and I were visiting Phoenix for a few days and found this amazing home online. What a perfect place to stay while in Phoenix, about 10-15 mins away from all of the hotspots including Tempe & Scottsdale! Dan was great and very accommodating. The mansion was beautiful and it had everything we needed: spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds, air conditioning throughout, great BBQ area, a very private backyard and the pool was the icing on the cake. My friends and I talk about this trip constantly and it was one of my top 3 most memorable weekends. If you are lucky enough to stay at this mansion, you will not regret it!

To begin I would like to thank Dan for allowing us to rent in his beautiful home and for being so helpful with any questions I had. This property was amazing. We were in town for our annual golf trip and just loved staying here. I loved the fact that it was minutes away from grocery stores, pharmacies, malls and golf courses (by car). The house is breathtaking. The layout of this house provided comfortable public spaces in which to meet, but also allowed each party to retreat to his or her private spaces without being disturbed by others. Each bedroom had its own attached bath, providing the perfect privacy for each guest. The home itself was beautiful and had every amenity we needed. The kitchen was extremely spacious and practical to cook our meals when we were not using the BBQ. The pool and hot tub were great to just kick back and enjoy the very private back yard. I would defiantly recommend this property for your next get away. Unfortunately, this property spoiled us for future rentals. It will be difficult to top this property. Angelo Montreal,Canada
Awesome golf getaway
September 23, 2011
This home is awesome with plenty of space for our group of 8 guys on our annual golf getaway. It's conveniently located to golf courses and grocery stores and night life. It would also make a great home for a family vacation.

Perfect Family Getaway
July 16, 2011
Family of 8 and we never felt the need to leave this beautiful home. The kids loved the swimming pool and roasting marshmallows on the firepit. The house has everything you need for entertaining! Convenient to shopping, restaurants and grocery stores. This is a great getaway for a family or family reunion. The owner was awesome and he promptly returned our deposit to us after our stay.

Great Family Staycation
July 2, 2011
Used the house for a local family staycation. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area with the beautiful views! My family and I spent most of of time relaxing in the pool and enjoying the sunshine. The house was perfect for our family since there was plenty of room for everyone to relax, whether that be alone or all together. I highly recommend staying here.

Best Time Ever
June 4, 2011
We had the good fortune of staying in this fabulous home in May for a girls reunion. Eleven of us had all the room in the world, and the home is so great we didn't leave the pool at all that week. I highly recommend this place if you every want to see how the other half lives.

This review is long over due! I went with a group of 13 friends on our second ever spring training trip. We really wanted to do it up in style this year and this house was the highlight of the trip! The pictures don't do the house justice! Great central location, close to the airport, close to the grocery store, shopping and all around spectacular! Very clean and well kept, the kitchen and backyard were a great place for us to gather and enjoy each other's company. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and was timely with all of my communications before and after the trip! I absolutely would recommend this property to anyone traveling to Phoenix and looking for a grand luxurious stay! Tip: Try the Nothing Bundt Cakes (about a mile or so away near the freeway) sooo yummy!

Many times you see an internet add and the property doesn't live up to expectations. This house is just the opposite...I don't think the pictures are as nice as the house. Our trip was 16 guys and our only requirement was no bed sharing (I don't like my friends quite that much). We brought a few air mattresses with us and 1 slept where ever he passed out. There are plenty of rooms to drop a mattress if your group requires that. The fire pit was an awesome place to hang out after a long day of golf and the back patio is quite peaceful. Be sure to check out the shower in the master suite. The homeowner went out of his way to provide us a few non-advertised items (ie, ping-pong table) so if there is something you are looking for, just ask. Communication with him was easy and prompt. Thanks for allowing my group to stay at such a luxurious property and we are looking forward to our next golf trip to Phoenix.

Great House and Great Location
Date of Stay: 02/10/11 Review Submitted: 03/31/11
Great Location and Great House 20 mins from airport and 20 mins to Troon courses in south phoenix. Perfect for a golf group or a couple families. Pool and hot tub are great, I would definitely recommend this place to groups. We had 14 guys and had more than enough room, could easily accomodate 20. Not far from ASU. Owner was helpful and we got our deposit back shortly after we left. Casino is also less than 15 minutes away.

Spring 2011 Golf Outing
Date of Stay: 02/24/11 Review Submitted: 03/22/11
We rented this mansion for a 3-day guy's golf weekend. With the addition of an inflatable air mattress it handled 12 guys easily and we each had our own bed. This place is everything that the listing says it is...and more. It is conveniently located only 20 minutes from the airport and close to many nice golf courses. The owner is a pleasure to work with and is easily reachable if anything is needed (although I cannot imagine what that could be). I wish we were going back to Phoenix next year as I would rent this place again in a heartbeat. Alas, we decided to go to Florida and I am afraid that my group's expectations are now so high because of this place that I will not be able to find anything nearly as nice for the price.

We had 10 golfers from all over the country stay at this house for 5 days, 4 nights and had a super stay at this gorgeous and spacious house. Loved the security of the community and the pool, hot tub, fire pit, and barbeque was a great way to relax after 36 holes of golf each day! The majority of the group had their own private bedroom and bathroom which was a big plus. Most of the courses we played were within 15 minutes of the location as well. Highly recommend the house if anyone is planning on having a golf vacation in Phoenix!

We were met by a great local lady who gave us the grand tour and directions on how to get the most out of this amazing house and the surrounding areas. It was just 2 of us in this huge place for our anniversary and we loved it. Everything was close by, golf, restaurants, shopping, casino. Fabulously private back yard. Amenities made you feel like you were in your own private resort. Same price as staying in a high end resort, but you dont have to share anything with anyone else!! we will return to this home every time we choose Phoenix for a week off.

Absolutely great house/location
Date of Stay: 08/22/10 Review Submitted: 09/20/10
Rarely does a facility live up to the marketing hype... in this case exceeded what was presented as a description of the facility. It had all the amenities, proximity to local shopping and golfing, close to the airport, excellent pool, hot tub, steam shower, entertainment room... and perhaps equally important the owner is simply a super guy... he was right there to help with even the smallest details.... will be going back!!!!!

This is an amazing property, with much more, to offer, than what is listed. We spent a very romantic weekend and felt very pampered. The listing photos, which are tremendous, can't, adequately, convey how impressive it is. Dan was very pleasant, to work with, and offered helpful suggestions, to expand our knowledge, of the area. Dinner, at Roy's (in Chandler), was a highlight; and it is 5 minutes away. Also, a Lifetime Fitness Center is 5 minutes away.

Our stay at the "mansion" as we called it was luxurious and fabulous! The home was large enough for us to all have our own rooms and bathrooms, yet we could congregate together and make the most of our annual reunion summer trip. The location was great - very close to Scottsdale (where we spent most of our time) and the airport.

We had 10 kids and 6 adults and we all stayed in this amazing house. We were a travelling sports team and Dan was very accommodating to our specific requests. We would stay here again next year if possible.
