Why Nicole - Owner/Manager chose North Gateway

We have been traveling down to Arizona for 20 years and finally decided to buy a vacation property. We love the arid southwest weather. The bright blue sky and seeing all the stars at night! We love our Arizona home because it offers privacy with a view. Some mornings we can see hot air balloons too. The home is the perfect size to allow space to spread out but not too large where you don't feel like you are together. The backyard offers view fencing (rather than a block wall), a lovely pool and hot tub! There are running trails behind the home too.

What makes this house unique

Most rentals in Phoenix have a block wall that surrounds the back yard and then backs up to another home so you have limited privacy and increased noise levels. Our home offers no rear neighbor and a view fence which overlooks a wash with walking, running, biking trails! In addition we have mountain views both to the north and the south and we frequently see hot air balloons in the morning and/or evening! We provide a real vacation feel with all the comforts of home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Came in town for the Garth Brooks concert and stayed with some girlfriends at this house. It was perfect! Plenty of rooms, comfortable beds and a great pool to enjoy outside! Oh and we saw hot air balloons almost every morning and evening!

We loved this home! Owner Nicole was so responsive and helpful with check-in instructions, etc. Home is in perfect condition with every comfort. Our kids loved the pool. Location is perfect for day trip to Sedona or Quick trip to Cave Creek/ Care Free. Thank you Nicole!

Should have researched more

  • 2 of 5

After long drive up couldn’t get into house until Nicole called us back with more detailed instructions which should be sent ahead . House was spacious enough for 2 couples but thin walls not noiseproof. Initially price looked like good value but lots of hidden costs didn’t show up until decided to do final booking almost doubled cost for 5 days . At that point too late to start new rental search . Didn’t realize it would be40-60min drive to anyplace we wanted to go like golf , ballgame , museum , upscale restaurants and shopping . Had to pay high cleaning service fee but still required to wash towels , strip beds , etc before catching early morning flight .

Owner's Response: I am sorry you felt I was not communicative. I responded immediately via text and email to all of your concerns but I could not talk as I was at work when you arrived seven hours early at the property. Our home functions perfectly, the patio door has a double handle in order to ensure it is child proof for pool safety.

It is a Desert Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

I always say that no stay is ever perfect, it's always on how you handle it. Nicole went above and beyond in ensuring that even the smallest hiccup was handled immediately and beyond our satisfaction. By far the best person we have rented from! Home is truly beautiful, and the location is perfect! It made for a perfect stay for our winter get away and will be the 1st on our list when we book our return. HIGHLY RECCOMMEND!!

Met up with my 3 adult kids and had the best time. Nicole is amazing to deal with and house is equipped with everything you need just bring your food. Very clean and great location by walking trails that we enjoyed everyday. Would definitely stay here again!

Michigan February Thaw..!

  • 5 of 5

First of all Nicole is great to deal with. Throughout the booking process, preparation for our stay, during and after our stay, she was there to answer any/all of our questions... And she just had a baby,.. Amazing!

The property was also immaculate! No need to bring much as Nicole has the house outfitted for comfort. I even asked her where to buy her mattresses as they were very comfortable... and she told me!

My wife & I, our kids and my wife's parents all took the week to thaw from Michigan in February and that we did. The house is literally right next to a walking path that leads out to the Sonoran Preserve. If we got too hot, the pool was there to cool us down, and my kids especially enjoyed the hot tub in the cool evenings. The neighborhood was great too. We went on a walk every night & literally everyone we saw, smiled & greeted us...

If your looking for a place to kick back, relax, & get away from the hustle of everyday life this is the place for you!
