About Kim Packebush
We are a Fire Fighter family, my husband and I have been married 33 years. We are owner/builders of Victorian Manor and Tuscan Acres. In 1990, we bought our property and set out on our mission to create the perfect gated community of old world custom homes. In 2008 my husband retired from the Phoenix Fire Department after 33 years of service, leaving myself, our eldest daughter (Kayleigh) and her husband(Forrest) to continue the fight in the fire service. Today we have the pleasure of being able to continue our love and connection within the customer service industry, by using our beautiful homes as vacation rentals, We truly enjoy meeting people from all over the world, and have made lifetime friends because of it. Come and enjoy the uniqueness and beauty of our properties ... we look forward to meeting you!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay
We absolutely loved our stay. The home was perfect for our large group of 3 families. Plenty of room for everyone. The outdoor space was amazing, especially since there weren’t neighbors right next door. We spent most of our days poolside and most of our evenings around the fire. Kim and Dennis were very accommodating. Would recommend this place to anyone!
The hosts for this property were amazing right from the time we booked through to check out. They kept us informed of things going on next door and were responsive to every question We would highly recommend it as it also has everything a group of people need for an enjoyable place to stay.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Wayne 👍I’m sorry we did not get to meet , but hopefully the next time you come through Arizona we will get to meet the whole family 🥰
Fantastic home with fantastic owners!
This is our second time staying at Kim and Dennis' manor! It is awesome for families like ours with a lot of people and a broad age-range of children. The adults have plenty of congregating areas and the kids have tons of space to run around outside as well! Kim an Dennis are extremely approachable and great at communicating! I would gladly book one of their homes again!
Thank you Justin for your wonderful review of our VRBO we are so happy you enjoyed Christmas with your family 👍�good to see you and your family again and we are looking forward to seeing you again next year👍�
Amazing Property, Location...Everything!
We had an amazing time at the Castle! My family came with 2 other families, all of us with small children ages 3-10. Everyone in our group had an amazing time and loved staying here. Several days before we came we created an online grocery order with our food for the week at nearby Safeway, which was conveniently delivered to the property an hour after we arrived! The house already had many things we didn't expect but appreciated so much- paper products, all soaps needed, spices, cooking materials, etc. (A member of our party even emailed Kim before coming to see if there was a crockpot, and she went out and bought one for us!!) The house and rooms were perfect for us- we actually had a few beds we didn't even need! Rooms can accommodate whether you want to be in a room with your children or not! Also there is even more seating in the TV room than is shown in the pictures- plenty of couch space for a large group. But the best part of this rental has to be all of the outside areas where we spent almost our whole time. The pool was amazing- big, beautiful with waterfall and changing lights at night. We spent plenty of time at the Tiki bar next to it. We probably spent the most time though at the fireplace and bar/grill (adults) and the grassy play area for the kids next to it. We all enjoyed the bocce set, and the kids all brought their gloves and balls for constant play! The owners, Kim and Dennis, were so helpful with suggestions for local hikes and places to explore. Buffalo Chip rodeo and the Black Mountain hike were favorites for sure! Local Jonnyś had a great breakfast, as well as the Sweet Blessings Bakery 5 min. away. Any type of store you need is within 5-10 min. This was also a great central location for our excursions to Scottsdale, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon. As you can see, you won't be disappointed if you stay here and the kids get to tell their friends they stayed in a castle! Great memories- thanks Kim and Dennis!
THANK YOU NICCI!!!

Very Truly yours

This property is even more beautiful than the pictures indicate. We could not have been more happy.
We were at maximum capacity and still never felt confined and there was always plenty of room to find space to relax . We had little children and adult children and the fire pit became a nightly gathering place. There were plenty of supplies to support cooking in and many places to visit within a short distance. We had a lot of guests interested in hiking and spent several days hiking nearby trails and one day to horseback ride. It was a very enjoyable vacation for of our family. This was our first trip to this area, and we hope it will be one of many. We would rent from this location again if we return to the area. We were there for a wedding, and we now have family in the area. This home made it possible for other family members to gather together away from the wedding, and everyone was amazed by the beauty of the property and the willingness for the owners to aid us when necessary. They were helpful in providing information about the area, and they always kept the pool clean. We wish we could have stayed longer and have gotten more use out of the pool, but the pool area was so spacious that many gathered there on the sunny days. It was nice to not have to run and get all of the incidentals right away because the owners made sure there were plenty of towels and bathroom supplies to hold us over until we made it to a store . We can not say enough about how blessed we were to have found this house and we really appreciated the character of the home and property. Thank you again for allowing us to use your home and for being so accommodating. We hope to be able to make it back again.
Thank you Joe and family for your wonderful review!! we truly enjoyed visiting with you and really enjoyed Jack’s birthday party 😂😂you have a tremendous family unit and we love seeing how close knit your family is💕We hope you make this a yearly trip hope to see you again soon .
Dennis and Kim😉👍
Excellent facility...excellent value
We rented for 10+ days and enjoyed every minute. The home is very comfortable and the owners are super to work with. We entertained clients and everyone had their own room and we loved to hang out at the tiki hut or near the fire pit when the sun when down. We'll be back next year. Kevin
Thank you Kevin for your wonderful review!!! we are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself, we only regret we didn’t get a little bit more time to visit, hopefully we can do that next year 😉thank you again for Booking your vacation at Victoria Manor 😉👍
