The home was wonderful and well appointed. Unfortunately the weather this year was the coldest Arizona had seen in 40 years. We used the property as a place to rest our head and traveled the Phoenix, Grand Canyon, Casa Grande, and Tuscan areas most days. There was not a lot to do locally and the backyard area lacked appeal. But you would have difficulty getting a better accommodation for the money. As our first experience in Arizona, we will probably not return, but that is our personal preference. There were days when sitting outside were negatively impacted by odors from local feed lots.

We were a little worried, renting for the first time off the internet, but everything was fantastic! The house was exactly as shown and very well stocked. We were extremely pleased and impressed with how easy it was! Would definately do again...
