About Owner/Manager

Whenever people were at my house they always told me they felt like they were on vacation. Over the years I had stayed at quite a few vacation rentals in Laguna Beach California, which gave me a good idea of how vacation rentals worked. So a few years back I started remodeling the house with the idea of it being 1st class, in case I ever wanted to turn it into a vacation rental. So when the economy collapsed and china ruined the furniture business, I closed my furniture manufacturing business of 20 years I started renting out the house. Now I really enjoy it. I have met lots of really cool and interesting people, and its cool knowing they really enjoyed the home while they were here.

Owner/Manager purchased this villa in 1995

What makes this villa unique

Most people that have stayed at the home have told me that taking the boat out during both the day and night was their favorite and most relaxing part of their vacation. This includes people that have gone to the grand canyon, sedona and many other beautiful parts of Arizona. THe lake has over 5 miles of shoreline and just about every home on it is unique and different, which makes for a very scenic and relaxing experience. The developer of the community was from Newport Beach California and wanted it to look like balboa peninsula in newport. The results 40 years later are stunning, because unlike almost anywhere else in Phoenix the area, it is lush and green with waterviews through out. You would never know your in the desert.

Fun spot to stay, on the lake with a boat. Roomy house with well equiped kitchen

  • 4 of 5

Only downside: continual rental use makes upkeep difficult and some things are showing their age.

Very nice clean house in a perfect location. The house was stocked with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Walt was very accommodating to our travel schedule. He also gave us suggestions of fun things going on in the area while we were there. Could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Definitely want to stay there again. We were sad to leave.

Pewaukee, WI

perfect home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home had plenty of space for our two teenagers and had everything we could have needed - plenty of towels, kitchen appliances and a zillion books. The boat is fun to go for late night rides on the little lake. The location is perfect in Tempe, right in the heart of everything. The Watershed restaurant is on the same lake as the house - you can take the boat there and the food and service is great (stay away from the Pier 54 restaurant though). Walt, the owner, was also great. Very friendly and accommodating!
