  • Wonderful vacation

    5 of 5

    We recently spent 2 months at Robert & DiAnn's house. We had a wonderful time. The house is quite comfortable; we really enjoyed the fireplace and fire pit on chilly mornings in February. The kitchen is very well-appointed with everything we needed for cooking, and the bed linens and towels are luxurious and high quality. Robert and DiAnn are wonderful hosts that responded instantly to our requests, and made us feel like old friends staying in their home.

  • Wonderful relaxing stay

    5 of 5

    We had such a nice and relaxing vacation at Robert and DiAnns beautiful home. They have thought of everything! From the amazing well stocked kitchen, to extras, of everything from shampoo to sandwich baggies in the kitchen, to games to play and a TON of movies to choose from. The pontoon boat was amazing and we used it at least twice everyday! We loved looking at all the homes on the lake and the beautiful sunsets! There are a lot of ducks and geese and some turtles. It is so peaceful there with the lake and all the birds chirping! DiAnn has done of beautiful job on the gardens. The outdoor fire pit was so awesome and we used it every morning and evening! They even had 4 bikes for us to use. 2 of them were brand new! They were great hosts and Robert even took our husbands to the grocery store. Then he called the next day to see if we needed to go to Costco. They checked on us a few times to see if we needed anything. There are 2 restaurants on the lake and we took the pontoon over to have dinner. It was great. We also took the pontoon over to the community center and hung out at the pool. They have a cooler on the pontoon so we filled it with drinks and food to have for our day at the pool. You can also walk to the community center. I would like to mention that there is no swimming in the lake. We are big water people so that was a little disappointing for us but no fault of Robert and DiAnns. We did see a few people kayaking though. We had a great stay! Thanks Robert and DiAnn!

  • It was unique, comfortable, well equipped and thoughtfully managed. Great place to stay!

    5 of 5

    DiAnn & Robert have created a lovely, comfortable home and are terrific hosts. We booked 5 days and wish we could have stayed longer. There is so much attention to details that really make your stay a pleasure. They generously put very nice, bath, laundry and kitchen products for quests to use. All the towels, sheets, and pillows are nice and I really value that comfort. They have taken time to organize instructions for every thing and give lots of local information to help you navigate and plan your visit. The decor is very artsy, unique and has an open feel with the high ceiling in living area that goes out to a great outdoor space. Being on the water with use of a pontoon boat was a big plus of course! The bathrooms have been beautifully renovated, are nicely decorated and thoughtfully supplied. Overall it is a great accommodation and I highly recommend it.

  • Lakeside Luxury--Our Phoenix Favorite!

    5 of 5

    We've stayed at quite a few places in the Phoenix area, but Lakeside Villa is the best by far. Nestled in Tempe, minutes from the ASU main campus, is a waterfront community with this gem of a house. Tastefully designed with high-end appointments throughout, it's casually elegant with whimsical, international accents. The high point, for us and our guests, is just off the comfy, multi-level patio. Like most houses on this man-made lake, it has a dedicated pontoon boat. Cruise the channel any time of day, enjoying the aquatic wildlife and viewing the elegant homes. This house has too many features to list, but a few of our favorites are the outdoor gas grill and fire pit, the hummingbird feeders and the sliding door from the master bedroom to the patio. Top-quality kitchen and laundry appliances make this a luxurious alternative to hotel rooms. The owners are super-responsive and a joy to work with. We feel like friends now and look forward to returning to their awesome house on our next trip to the area.

    We loved staying at this property. It was conveniently located to downtown Tempe and an easy commute to both Phoenix and Scottsdale. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the pontoon boat access was a very nice touch!

  • A Great Lake Villa!

    5 of 5

    Bill & Carol, Michigan DiAnn and Robert are great host, they were with us all during the check-in process when we arrived. The villa was perfect for our stay, close to our son. Everything you might need and more is there. The villa has all the amenities a person needs while there. The terrace is nice with fire pit. The villa is beautifully decorated, we found something new and interesting every day to look at and talk about. Nice, quiet and very pretty. The Pontoon boat was an added plus. We enjoyed taking our son and granddaughter for boat rides. The location is close to everything. We did need some help with the TV because I lost the picture, called Robert and he was there right away to get it working (Thank you!). We really enjoyed our stay and will probably go again in the future to visit our son. Thank you for sharing us your Villa with us.

  • Waterfront Villa is a hidden gem in Tempe

    5 of 5

    This Villa was perfect for our stay. My husband and I took the Master Bedroom and his Granddaughter met us there and stayed in the other bedroom. We loved sitting out on the deck in the morning listening to all the different birds all around. There were many new families of ducks visiting on the Lake everyday. The Pontoon was a great added attraction. We took it out just as the sun was setting and into the Moonlight. Got some great pictures. Everything you might need was there and it was comfortable. The location was close to everything, but hidden away. We really enjoyed our stay and will probably go again in the future as our son lives in Phoenix and we make a trip out to see him every year. DiAnn and Robert kept in touch with us all through the process and checked on us after we arrived. They were very quick to get us a new coffee pot when ours was not brewing. Nice welcome basket of goodies and treats awaited us. Sunset every night. Very quiet area and very pretty. Loved the notes on everything to help you out. Very nice appliances to use. Fancy, but comfy. Thank you for sharing this awesome Villa

  • Great stay at Lake Villa

    5 of 5

    Wanted a place that provided the space we needed for the 3 of us along with all the amenities plus more and found it at this Lake Villa. Prefect for the 3 of us and location convenient to Sky Harbor airport, Phoenix, Tempe, Goodyear, Scottsdale and even Tucson. Villa has all you need and more and the owners have thought of just about everything to make your stay special. The Villa is delightful with a great walk out terrace with fire pit. The lake makes you feel as if you are in more of a tropical climate, and enjoyed taking the boat out in the evening. Clubhouse was located within walking distance with work out equipment, pool, tennis, ping pong, all the amenities you could want. The Villa was decorated beautifully plus you also get high end bedding and towels along with plenty of movies to keep you entertained. Kitchen is fully stocked and the Nespresso coffee making was wonderful. The welcome basket was a very nice touch and the owners were wonderful and accommodating. Market and restaurants were convenient. Went to Trader Joes for most of our in-house food. Everything you need is available with full laundry and kitchen. Visited the on lake restaurants which were both very good. This Villa patio faces the west so you get the sunset which is nice. Overall a great visit and highly recommend this rental. Much prefer this over a hotel or resort. Thank you for sharing you home with us.

  • The Lakes in Tempe is a great vacation spot.

    5 of 5

    We rented a condo on The Lakes for two fantastic weeks. Richard and DiAnn have a charming home and were the best hosts you could ask for. Everything, restaurants, shopping, Dunkin Donuts even is close by. A fantastic plus is the use of their pontoon boat. The house is fully equipped, pots, pans, linens, washer and dryer, cable, wireless. It truly was like living at home. We highly recommend Richard and DiAnn.

  • Fantastic Lake Villa!

    5 of 5

    Having rented VRBO’s in the US and abroad, I can say without reservation that this was one of the very best experiences ever. Robert and DiAnn were so accommodating and the home was both comfortable and well equipped. Having the use of bikes and the boat really enhanced the experience. We give this 5 Stars!

  • A great week in Tempe

    5 of 5

    We had a great week staying at this home. The pictures are spot on. The house is right on the water and the ability to use the pontoon boat was a nice bonus. The house was spotless when we arrived. All of the appliances are brand new and high-end. It was nice to have a washer and dryer to use instead of taking home a suitcase full of dirty clothes. The beds were very comfortable (and we are hard to please about that). Robert and DiAnn were very easy to work with. Robert spoke with us when we arrived at the house to go through details and explain how everything worked. We enjoyed having use of the clubhouse and all of its amenities. The house is in a great location and easy to get around the city. We would definitely stay here again.

    DiAnn and Robert were the most gracious hosts. We traveled with our 1 year old and 2 year old and DiAnn went out of her way to secure some baby items and toys for us. Everything was in order and it was very clean. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful rental.

  • The perfect place!

    5 of 5

    We had such an amazing time during our week in Tempe! The property was even more beautiful than the pictures! We loved our time on the deck enjoying views of the lake, DiAnn's flowers, the ducks and their families, the table fire pit and more -- it was all so lovely and relaxing. DiAnn and Robert's hospitality just can't be beat. They were born to be hosts! And the attention to detail in the house made it such a special place to be. We were always finding something new in the decor we hadn't noticed before. The bed was so comfortable and the robes were a special touch. The kitchen was equipped with absolutely everything you could need. We hiked, walked, spent a day in Sedona, grilled out on the deck, spent hours reading and just generally had a wonderful week. We can't wait to return!

  • A Truly Beautiful Spot to relax in

    4 of 5

    Waking up to this stunning view every morning was spectacular and to be able to gently cruise this lake on the pontoon boat provided was very special. Di Ann and Robert went out of their way to greet us and to help us settle in to their amazing home. Nothing was too much trouble to them and yet they were not at all invasive. It is obvious that they have put so much work into this rental. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped with everything you could ever need. The lounge area has a large flat screen TV, with a sofa that was so comfortable you never wanted to get off it! Games, books, DVDs, puzzles, maps and lists of places to go, were all provided for our use. The patio area outside was perfect for relaxing or entertaining, and again had top quality equipment and a choice of pretty areas to sit in. We were there in January when the sun was low in the sky, so if you are a sun lover and you are visiting in the winter months you may need to choose you're spot to sit in. The patio area is a little shaded for much of the day. However, sitting or eating on the boat will guarantee some sun in the mornings and there is a little sunny spot at the front of the house for the afternoon. A wonderful selection of supermarkets and shops are within walking distance, and then there is Kiwanis Park and Lake just 20 minutes away, it's well worth the walk. When you're here it's hard to believe you are in the middle of a desert area, it is really special.

  • Over the Top!

    5 of 5

    DiAnn and Robert's Lakes Villa is absolutely fabulous! The outdoor space is fantastic! We utilized the pontoon boat daily to meander through the Lake with our cocktails and snacks. On two occasions we docked at the Watershed restaurant for dinner. We were able to host two dinner's for six on the back patio by combining tables--the grill worked well. The fire pit table was wonderful to sit by in the early mornings while drinking coffee and watching the water birds. The area is very peaceful. DiAnn and Robert met us at their property and provided us with the information we needed to make our stay fabulous. We loved cooking in the kitchen with its high end appliances and all the serving and cooking and storing items we could want. The living room is very comfortable for lounging and watching TV. Both bathrooms are spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated. The sheets are top notch and the beds and pillows are super comfortable. This property is by far our favorite VRBO in the Tempe/Scottsdale area--and we have stayed in many! We hope to return in the near future.
