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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time at this home. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and the spacious backyard was a nice surprise. The owners aren't local but that wasn't a problem at all. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. It is fully stocked, however, we ended up buying our own supplies like toilet paper, paper towels and sponges as the ones there were not great. But that is completely understandable for a rental and buying these items in bulk. Our stay was during the summer and our children loved swimming in the pool every day. It had a secure fence surrounding it which made us feel very safe when our little ones were outside and not swimming. The house does not have cable set up but we knew that going in and brought our own device to watch. We visit AZ often and would be happy to stay at this property again. Actually we were hoping to rent again for Thanksgiving but some other lucky family got to it first!

Fun and relaxing!

Great place to relax and the pool is perfect! Just know that a car is essential as Uber is scarce and cabs are expensive.

Owner's Response: So glad to know you enjoyed the private back yard. The grass yard and pool make it easy to just want to hang around and relax. Jim and Jan.

Clean and comfort. Could use a little cosmetic sprucing up.

  • 4 of 5

Loved being so close to Usery Regional Park. Convenient to Sloan Park. Only downside was not being able to walk to stores for a morning paper🙁�.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing to stay in our vacation home. I'm sure you enjoyed the heated pool, especially knowing Chicago was having a major winter storm while you were away! Sure hope you got a chance to see a few winning games of the Cubs. Jim and Jan

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

First off, we had a wonderful stay at this house. The house was amazing, clean, spacious. The family put a lot of thought into the needs of folks who would be staying there.

Kitchen cabinets and drawers were clearly labeled with what was inside so we didn't spend a lot of time opening up each cabinet to find what we were looking for. Light switches were also labeled . This was such a surprise as we've never stayed in a home where this was the case.

The house had everything we needed both inside and outside. Ample space provided for all of my family and we all were very comfortable in the rooms. We surely felt at home.

The backyard was a wonderful escape/retreat for the hot days we experienced. It was great to have the pool gated in case you have young kiddos.

We could not have had a better time. The community was a nice and quiet gated community with walking paths throughout as well as a school next door with a park that we often went to with the kids or for runs. Location was perfect. Not too far from grocery stores/shops.

This home was amazing and exceeded all expectations. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
