The location is close to everything and the 303 Freeway ½ mile away gives easy access to the whole Metro Area.

We traveled to Arizona in the summer heat for what else...baseball. My oldest was in a 7 day tournament and we desired a place to hold a family of 5, to retreat and relax outside the confines and expense of a hotel. The Ranch was perfect. The peaceful atmosphere and beautiful grounds were a welcomed respite from the heat of the ballfield. Paula welcomed us, had the house cooled for us, and everything we needed to get started on our vacation. Grocery shopping is nearby. We desired space, a place to cook, do laundry and beautiful scenery. The Ranch has that and so much more. From horses, to groves, to the pool and landscaped yards, we felt both at home and on vacation. We would definitely stay and recommend George and Paula's Ranch home.

This place is a gem. Quiet. Fun with all the horses, rabbits, fruit orchard and lots of room. Well equipped. Location is close to everything you need and being off the 303 highway you can get anywhere but outside the big city rush. Also great for golf choices as well as Surprise, Peoria and Goodyear spring training. But shhhhhh, don't tell everyone about this place or we won't be able to stay in the future.

George & Paula have the best kept secret in the Southwest. Their guest house is one of the best experiences we've had via Airbnb. What a place, so nice, extremely clean, comfortable and off the main road, so we slept so well, those beds are amazing! We have 2 little boys who just had the time of their lives, Our hosts have 14 horses and acres of citrus groves, fresh squeezed orange juice every morning. The boys (3 and almost 5) loved exploring the property. The creature comforts are those one would expect in a high priced hotel. Remote control fireplace, wifi and a well thought out home for kids (if you have them) This place is modern, and off the beaten trail, but still close to shopping, freeways and in a very nice area of the "West Side" of Phoenix. North of Luke AFB and not far from the White Tank Mountains, we highly recommend our hosts and their property. An experience we are sharing with all our friends and family. Thanks George & Paula, we had a great time Stan, Nancy, Sean & Robbie Oakland, California

Fantastic fantastic fantastic!! We rented this home for our English family and they left extremely satisfied. They were able to pick fresh fruit daily and enjoy the wonder views of mountains and horses during their daily walks around the ranch. The hosts (George and his beautiful wife) provided wonderful conversation as well to our visiting family.. Top notch comfort and service they provided! Impressed beyond words!! Thank you again for providing this service to our visiting family..

This was a great stay in Arizona for myself and my family. We were there to celebrate my brother's graduation from his master's program at Thunderbird School of Global Management. It turned out by coincidence that the host, George is a fellow Thunderbird! We took morning walks around the grounds and picked fresh grapefruit and oranges for our mimosas! The horses are beautiful and impressive creatures, and my 4-year-old and 10 year-old nieces were entranced by them. The House was comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone in our party. It was great to have a place for gatherings with my brother's friends and classmates. The house is right around the corner from good grocery stores, and just a few blocks from the entrance to the freeway. We had a great time in this luxurious house in a very convenient and seemingly secluded location. Thank you George & Paula, The Jutzys

This was our first time using Airbnb so we were a little hesitant. The guest house was a perfect "home away from home". It has a nice grass backyard for the dogs to run and play in and all the amenities you need. The house looks exactly like the pictures. You get the whole guest house to yourself. I felt so much at home that I forgot that we were renting it at times. George and Paula were very helpful and friendly! We would strongly recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the Phoenix area. If you stay during the winter months the fruit will be ripe and you can pick/eat all you want. Don't hesitate to stay here. You won't regret it!

I am a second Generation Arizona Resident now living in Surprise, Arizona with my Wife. We love horses and raise Friesian Horses. additionally I own a Granite and Marble firm with a partner and we import stone and stone products from China and other stone producing countries. My Wife works for the Peoria School District - now in her 17th year there as an assistant to the District Nurse Coodinator. We have three grown children - Melissa who is a Naturalpathic Doctor and her husband Brian, George V who works for Microsoft Retail in management, and Paul who has a Masters Degree in History but works in Computers at Limelight here in the valley.

My wife and I love to travel - love and raise horses as well as care for three small rescue dogs and three just showed up cats. Our ranch in Surprise is also home to a U-Pick Citrus Grove that is open to the Public December to February. We Bowl in a league and love the theater and movies.

Places we have been outside the USA - Canada - Mexico - China- Thailand - Japan - Cuba - England - Ireland- Scotland -France -Italy - Greece.

We used airbnb in Paris for 11 days and without a doubt it was one of the best trip ever. We had a million dollar plus two bedroom apartment within short walking distance of the Eiffel Tower by Trocadero Circle. We could see it even from the kitchen window. This got us hooked on Airbnb and we try to make sure our guests have teh same experience we did at our place.
