We ran away from California to visit family in Arizona and we are so happy we came across this home. Everything from the beds to the pool was fantastic. We will rent again next time we come back to Arizona.

Amazing yard, nice pool, quiet neighborhood, clean. Easy access to everything and loved chaparral park.

This home has a phenomenal backyard, some really cool interior decor, great pool, safe/quiet neighborhood. There were some minor issues - SLOW drain in master bath sink, low water pressure in hall bath shower and some lightbulbs out. Annoyances rather than real detractors as the home really grows on you and the pool and backyard were amazing.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Monica! The light bulbs have been replaced, and we are working on labeling light switches to ensure guests are using the correct ones. We hope to see you again!

The property was nice. It's a quiet location, with lots of privacy. The only gripes I have were the backyard did not look exactly like the photo. The plans were overgrown to the point were they were hanging over the edge of the pool, and flowers and seed pods were in the pool everyday. Also, probably a third of the lights inside didn't work, and most of the lights in the backyard did not work, which made it kind of tough to enjoy the backyard at night (one of the two times during the hot AZ summer when you can go outside!). Other than that, the property was very nice!

Great house with a wonderful back yard, if it had not been so cool while we were there I think I would have stayed in the back yard 24/7 sleeping in the hammock by night and playing in the pool by day.
