We had a great experience staying at Gary and Sandy's home. The hosts were very helpful in the days coming up to the stay, provided great detailed instructions for the home and were very responsive.
Precisely as described. Excellent and beautiful home. They made it so easy to be there. Full instructions. Home even better than photos. View stupendous. Very private. Car wonderful bonus, older but nice vehicle, clean, and easy to manage getting it and returning it. Fully stocked immaculately clean home. Beds comfortable. Guest bedroom off kitchen very private, full bath and bigger than most home bedrooms. Second master very big with full bath. First master enormous with huge bathroom. Lovely and well stocked huge gourmet kitchen and curved glassed dining area with great view. They encourage you to use the spices and condiments so one does not have to buy all those little things. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen a pleasure to use. Gas kitchen range. Gas grill on patio. Formal dining room is semi-private room suitable to use for a blow up bed if you need more sleeping spaces. Office and PC for your use. WiFi internet throughout house and patios. Good cell and 3-4G reception. Living room very comfortable w big screen TV and gas fireplace, huge windows and great views. Big windows and views throughout house! Peaceful and comfortable furnishings. Good linens. Washer and dryer. Workout equipment in third bay of garage. Extra refrigerator for cold drinks. The covered patio is enormous and we had breakfast out there. So restful. Cooled by mist in hot weather. Nice good size pool. Hot tub generous size. Inner courtyard is walled for security. More yard beyond the wall. Front courtyard and second master bedroom courtyard separate patios for extensive privacy. The upper deck where we watched the sun set is large, has table and chairs and a gas fireplace. Lovely tile and hardwood floors with thick native woven design rugs and carpet in bedroom and living rooms. Those are the amenities. The home is a luxury home with a unique layout of rooms to maximize interest. Upscale in design, neighborhood, and construction. Gated community was easy to access by following instructions. Gary and Sandy made it easy to arrive, stay and depart. They were always available for questions. Highly friendly and actually cared that we enjoyed ourselves. It was our first Airbnb rental and we are totally hooked. I felt like we were staying the home of a good friend while they were away. Everything ready for us, spotlessly clean, lovely, well kept. It was chilly a few days and the house was nice and warm, and there is AC for when it's hot. This is a home to treasure and value. It felt so very comfortable there. Sandy checked in a few times and was accessible. We had six adults. More than enough space. Very relaxed and private. Left good resources to enjoy the community. We went horseback riding at Spur Cross, and to the Grand Canyon (Southwest Tours great!), visited the farmers market in Carefree on Friday morning, toured Sedona and Cave Creek. Stores etc available in nearby Carefree. A highly successful and enjoyable experience!
Great home and lovely, helpful hosts!
Aside from the home being more beautiful and meticulously maintained then it appears in the photos.Sandy and Gary couldn't have done any more as our hosts.Making sure we had a full operational manual for all the amenities that there home has to offer to allowing us to use their car for our stay...I felt very much at home! We shall return!!! Thank you again..... Gary Barnes ps. Thanks for the bottle of wine and "homemade" jam.....we had to drink/eat it before we left as the only allow 4oz of 'anything' on the plane!
We very much enjoyed our stay-cation here! The house is spacious, yet cozy and comfortable; quaintly decorated, yet modernly equipped.
There are a handful of nearby houses, but there is plenty of privacy. The serene setting provides ample tranquility for superb relaxation.
The surrounding area is flush with wildlife, including many birds feeding from the bird feeders. We even saw a bobcat strolling by the driveway while we lounged in the pool area! (Don't worry, we felt safe.)
The community's security personnel provide a secure and safe environment that enhances one's sense of comfort. However, with a bit of planning, it was no bother for guests to visit us.
The Moselles were friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond when needed. After a small problem with a broken lock, a locksmith was summoned immediately, and the matter was resolved promptly and with no hassle on our part, whatsoever.
I would certainly recommend this home!
We had a great time at this beautiful home. Very nice space. Sound system is perfectly set up. Very quiet and peaceful surroundings. Gary is a fantastic host and will do all that he can to make your stay enjoyable. We would definetly stay here again while in Scottsdale.
In a word: FANTASTIC!! This house was PERFECT for a girls getaway. We had seven people comfortably relaxing by the spa (hot tub) and enjoying the fireplace and everything else the place has to offer. The place was SPOTLESS, great location, quiet (but not too quiet), and has every amenity possible. If you will be in PHX, this is a great place to stay. Also, Gary and Sandy communicated everything clearly, and we had no issues with anything. They are excellent hosts (even in their absence, it feels like they are "hosting!") We can't say enough thanks and cannot recommend this property highly enough!!
Gary & Sandy went above and beyond in preparing the home and allowing us to host our wedding reception at the house. The reception went over better than even I could have expected and I owe a deep warm thanks to both Gary & Sandy for their hospitality.
The space on the patio was ideal for setting up tables and the sound system and fire proved to add just the right aesthetic to create a romantic and wonderful reception.
The house, pool, and neighborhood were perfect and just what we had hoped for. The owners where extraordinarily helpful and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better warm weather get away and plan to stay at this home on future vacations.
