Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable house that met all of our needs. The beds were comfortable, the space open and clean. My kids loved the pool which was a great size. The entire outdoor area was very comfortable and my son especially loved the basketball hoop. We also really appreciated the location which was close to Superstition Springs and just down the road from the AMC 24 movie theaters and a whole array of restaurants. I would recommend this home happily.

Nice. Worked perfectly for us

This property worked perfectly for us. We were in town for our son's wedding. The property helped our family be together for such an important day. Would definitely stay here again if the occasion arises

We have stayed at the Cooley House three times now and always enjoy the stay. The house is very comfortable for a couple, but has plenty of space for a family or group of friends. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to work in. The backyard is a great place to relax and the fire pit provides a fun place to enjoy a glass of wine or some s'mores. We'll be back!

Gilbert house, Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our wedding party. We traveled from Utah to marry off the baby of the family to a girl who lives in Gilbert. There were 8 adults and the groom. We had more than enough room for everyone and the kitchen was priceless for our luncheon preparation. There was enough space for everyone to stay out of each other's way and yet be together as much as we wanted. It was awesome. We only regret that we couldn't stay longer and enjoy the pool. With all the bathrooms and bedrooms, we were able to really have a nice stay. Charmaine was so helpful as we flew in very late and left us the keys.

When we come back, I wouldn't hesitate to rent here again!

From the Owner

I love the sun but I live and work in gorgeous, but rainy, Southeast Alaska. The vacation home is a great place for me to relax and get great sun. Also, there is great shopping close by, some within walking distance.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Sky Harbor Airport at 15 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 60 at 1 Miles Car: recommended

The house is located near the corner of Baseline and Stapley/Cooper Road, with quick and easy access to highway 60, which allows easy access to all parts of town (highway 60 intersects with highway 10 and highway 101, and both of those allow easy access to highway 202). Guests have especially appreciated the location.

From the Owner

I have a busy lifestyle, and look forward to downtime in a relaxing setting. I love to relax in the sun by the pool with a good book, and I enjoy shopping and eating in good restaurants. The house is located closest to highway 60, but also close to the 101 and the 202. I have all I need here at my vacation home!
