About Jim and Jan Paulsen
Spring Training baseball, the Cubs, that is what started it all! We fell in love with the Mesa area. From Montana, looking forward to retirement, we started 'the plan' and it included purchasing this beautiful home near the mountains in AZ. We need a home this large to welcome our 3 adult children and 10 grandchildren on occasion. We are delighted to share our home with vacationers until we are able to use it more often.
Jim and Jan Paulsen purchased this House in 2011

Safe, comfortable and fun house for families!
We loved this house so much! It had everything we needed to have a fun vacation with 2 small children (1.5 and 3 yo). The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed to entertain plus it has a great bbq and outdoor dining set. Having the pool fenced and heated was perfect for the kids.
Also, the house is equipped with some kid's books and toys (my son loved the cement mixer truck), a pack in play, a highchair and step stools for the bathrooms!
Loved the neighborhood for early morning runs and super markets and drug stores are all within 2-5 miles (Target, Baschas, CVS, Safeway, Walgreens etc..).
The new LG Washer and Dryer were quite nice too.
My son came home from vacation wanting to still be at the "Arizona House" so it was more than just the adults that loved this place. Thank you!
We are so happy to hear your vacation was fun and relaxing. It can be troublesome to travel with 'littles', this is a great type of arrangement for young families. You are welcome back to the Arizona House any time! Jim and Jan
Comfortable, quiet neighborhood, close to hiking
We stayed for a month and found it to be great for our needs. We liked that it was a gated community. The neighborhood is friendly. It was just a couple of blocks walk to a trail which led to trails in Usery Mountain Park which is beautiful in the spring with the blooms. We did find a number of the nicer golf courses to be a longer drive than we liked because the house is in east Mesa. The development was perfect for walking our dog and he met many other "pups" in the neighborhood. Desert Arroyo Park is next door to the development through a gate by the nearby grade school and was another favorite place to walk our dog. A plus was the backyard has grass which our little Havanese loved and was a bit of "home away from home" for him.
Basha's, Albertson's and Safeway are all within 10 minutes of the house. The kitchen had many staples including spices, flour, sugar and plenty of pots, pans, and dishes. Cleaning supplies, detergent, and toiletries were all supplied. The only reason we did not give it a 5 star is the downstairs carpeting is stained and soiled and it was difficult to tell if the vacuum cleaner was actually "cleaning" when we used it.
Jim and Jan were very prompt in answering all of our questions and resolving any of our concerns.
We are happy to know your time away from your hometown snowy winter was a good one. We also love the neighborhood and the walking areas. Thank you for your care and concern of our home. Glad to see you are returning! Jim and Jan
Loved our stay
Thanks, we are glad it all worked out for you.
Quiet and Comfortable Home Away From Home
We spent ten days at this lovely home while visiting Mesa to celebrate a wedding. It was extremely well organized with all of our needs met. The sheets were soft, towels fluffy, and the beds were cozy. The master bathroom was spacious as well as gorgeous. This home was very tastefully decorated and the furnishings both beautiful and comfortable. We were able to spend a few afternoons on the delightful porch watching the hummingbirds, quail, and dove. The kitchen was very well equipped and organized. This home provided us with the opportunity to rest and unwind from our hectic wedding schedule and spend quality time with family. We are hoping to visit again someday and will plan to take time to explore the walking trails in the area. Thank you so much.
It makes us happy to know that your family vacation time at the Mesa home was enjoyable. Those hummingbirds are a sight to see, we agree. You are welcome back anytime. Thank you so much.
