Quiet, on water..rest or explore Arizona.
Wisconsin Grandparents wintering in Arizona to be near daughter and family who reside in Gilbert found everything we expected and more.
House is very clean with fully equipped kitchen (understatement) , abundant, state of the art entertainment electronics, computer, printer. After a day hiking in the Superstition Wilderness, the views of Stone bridge Lake seemed like a mirage. The catch and release fishing was a bonus as I was able to introduce my granddaughters to my favorite sport ( shhh...bass to 3lbs.)
A lot of people would shy away from Arizona in the summer, thinking it will be way too hot! And, well - it is definitely hot! However, it is also monsoon season, so you get the treat of experiencing desert thunderstorms, complete with the lightening bolt show and loud clap followed by rolling thunder! Truly an awesome experience! You can sit outside under the solid awning, so you are fully protected and it is warm enough.
The lakes are great, so if you like boating or tubing - even early morning golf, it's not a bad time to visit.
The home itself is exquisite - beautifully appointed. Know that one of the bedrooms is configured as an indoor gym, and it also has a workable office that is equipped with a windows PC ans all-in-one printer. This is a great workspace! There is a leather trundle bed I there, so if you had to, you could accommodate a couple of extra guests.
Great place, will definitely come back.
I loved this place!
I loved this place the minute I walked in. The decor is wonderful, the house and environment is relaxing, it's close to everything. The water view is amazing, I will come back on my next vacation to AZ!
Great Family Vacation Home
We rented this home for a two weeks to commemorate my father's 70th birthday in May 2009. It had room enough for six of us to stay comfortably. We decided on this place in Gilbert, Arizona because it was close enough to the happenings, but secluded enough that we could really feel like we were away from it all.
The master bedroom/bathroom suite is to die for with views of the lake everywhere. All the rooms are really nice; linens are fresh, beds are amazingly comfortable. Everything about this house is wonderful - the slate flooring is just gorgeous and cool. I want to buy it!
We spent most of our time outside in the perfect May weather -- not to hot, not too cold! The backyard has lush green grass, flanked by pine trees - great for when we played Bocce Ball that the owner has for outdoor fun. My brother-in-law loves to fish, so he taught us all how to "catch & release" fish right from the backyard! What fun and so many good laughs were had! We often sat out in the back yard or lounging and enjoying the hammock. The BBQ is underneath a light and a fan, so it's really comfortable to cook no matter the time of day or evening. We also made use of the kitchen, which frankly is better equipped than my own home! The formal dining room has this great, long distressed wood dining table with very comfortable leather chairs. We had great dinners, played cards, dominos and all sorts of family games.
I should mention that the sunrise and sunsets are beautiful -- especially if you are lucky enough to have a little storm go through. We saw an amazing sunset, followed by a night-light show from the Thunderheads. All-in-all, we could not recommend this home more! We will be coming back!!
Cory thanks for posting your memories of your stay (your first stay!!) at "The Magnet" as we now call it. If you have the time, it would be great to hear about that next stay you all did over the Thanksgiving holiday. Don't forget, I offer my repeat customers a discount! Come on back!
Relaxation at it's finest!
I must say I have rented vacation homes in various cities but this home is truly a magnet to ones heart. It sits on a lake and when outside sipping a glass of wine and reading a good book you feel such serenity and peace, we spent much time outside enjoying this view of the water, BBQ and the hot tub.
The kitchen is a cooks dream, clean and has all the toys a top chef would want at their disposal.
The beds were comfy and all and all it was a very quiet place to reside with my family. If you do choose to leave this home for a night out there are many nice restaurants near by. I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone that can appreciated the comforts of home with the beauty of sitting on a lake.. it is truly a great find and the owner is very easy to work with.
Pamela - Thank you for taking time to write such a wonderful review! You and your family were so great to work with and were the first guests we had when we put it into rental years ago. We hope to see you again soon!
Gilbert is a great town! This home is in walking distance to one of the best and biggest parks in the area - Freestone Park. There are often community activities and free events; there are tennis courts, waterfalls, and all the other things you would expect in a park. Not far is the Water Ranch Riperian park, one of the areas finest bird-watching areas. Old Town Gilbert (now known as Gilbert's Heritage District) https://www.discovergilbert.com/
is also near, with the Hale Theatre, a museum and lots of new great restaurants have opened as well as some older local favorites like Liberty Market, the Farmhouse and Joe's BBQ. A number of new restaurants have also popped up - JoyRide is a new favorite right next to Postino's. Joyride is a new hipster style mexican restaurant - great food and unique drinks.
