A Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of my favorite VRBOs! I have to admit I was a bit hesitant about sharing a yard with the owner of the VRBO, but it was great! The yard, pool, Naomi and Blaise made it feel just like being at home. Speaking of home, the house itself was great too! The most comfortable and largest couch I've encountered, fabulous kitchen and awesome shower!! Even the bed was comfortable :) We have a lake home and this house really made us feel like we were there, in our own home! Mary was a great host and we were fortunate to meet her before we left. We never felt like we were "watched" or intruded upon or anything of the sort! Sitting out by the pool and on the front deck in the evenings was lovely! The neighborhood is a historic one and has beautiful houses to gaze at while walking each evening. The Heard museum was around the corner within walking distance. It has a great Navajo exhibit! My husband and I are never really the type to stay at the same VRBO when we visit the same area, however this is definitely one VRBO where we will stay again when coming to Phoenix to visit my husbands daughter! Thanks again Mary we look forward to another visit!!

Wonderfully cozy and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay here could not have been better. Mary, our hostess, was so very kind and considerate from the time we arrived until it was time to say good bye. Such a comfortable home with everything anyone would need to feel right at home. Loved the pool as well, just right for a warm afternoon cool off. We will return, I am sure !

Would surely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

What an easy and comfortable place to stay in Phoenix! Excellent location, this spacious cottage had everything we needed. The kitchen and gas grill were as nice as home. The cottage is huge and the yard was very nice to hang around in. The pool was great--the cold water very refreshing. Bedroom and bathroom were great as well. Mary and her family were very friendly and their dogs were very well behaved and not in the way at all. The location is near downtown and the airport but in a real neighborhood. We recommend Taliesin West and the Biltmore Hotel for visits to Frank Lloyd Wright country.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our sweet home away from home. Mary and her family are warm and caring hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We smiled when we walked into the back yard and when we saw the house, it was love at first sight. Thank you Mary for giving us an oasis of calm and peace and joy and beauty. I will carry that feeling with me until we see you again next year!
