About Helen S.

This property was our first venture into the vacation rental business. We purchased the home in 2013 and had it totally renovated inside and out. We aim to provide the same kind of high standards that we ourselves, would expect to find in a vacation rental home. Our many excellent reviews will attest to this.

Our second vacation rental property is in the adjacent gated community. SEE VRBO 617218 for further details.

I had a wonderful stay in Mesa at this property. This was my first VRBO experience and it was excellent! It was spacious enough to share a Christmas celebration with my family. It had everything we needed, even to cook a Christmas dinner. The location is wonderful if you need to be in the Mesa area. The access off 202 is so easy. There are many great restaurants nearby, even within walking distance. Drug stores, grocery all nearby. I highly recommend this property! I know I’ll be back!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I was in Mesa for 10 days to visit my elderly mother. This home was perfect. It was clean, well decorated and equipped, and very conveniently located. The owners were great to work with. I would rent from them again!

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay in this home-the second time that we have rented from Helen and Bob. As was the case with our previous experience, this home more than met our expectations. Upon arrival, we were met by our host who provided us with a gift basket with some ‘basics’ to get us started such as cereal, cookies, water, fresh fruit and even wine. The house

has all the amenities and is comfortably-and tastefully-furnished. The yard, though small, has been completely re-landscaped and features a nice patio area with a propane barbecue and ample seating. Just down the street is a ‘clubhouse’ with a community pool and exercise room etc. Located with easy access to the 202 freeway and minutes away from 3 top notch golf courses (Longbow-our favorite-, Las Sendas, and Red Mountain). If you are golfers, you couldn’t be in a better spot. The neighborhood- definitely a dog-friendly one- is a mix of retirees, working singles and families with children young and old.

The house is exactly as is shown in the pictures-there are no ‘surprises’ such as those we have heard about from friends in other rentals. You can be confident that ‘what you see is what you get’. We can also guarantee that you will not find friendlier or more accommodating hosts than Helen and Bob.
