Robert and DiAnn are wonderful hosts. We immediately felt comfortable and at home. They accommodated reshuffling our arrival time and made coming and going a breeze. Could not ask for a finer host. Thanks Robert and DiAnn!


There is no way I can give DiAnn & Robert the accolades they deserve with mere words. We felt their kindness from the very first text we received. Their home is amazing and reflects their warm, caring, and exciting personalities. My best friend stayed at their place and he is in awe over them. I am blessed to know that they will be lifelong friends and I will have an opportunity to share in their lives. Their home is beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. From the moment we met, DiAnn and Robert made us both feel as though we were family. My friend Curtis was apprehensive about Airbnb but has now concluded that DiAnn and Robert will be lifelong friends and his home away from home when in Arizona. They raise the bar to the highest level in every way imaginable. 


This is a wonderful neighborhood, very safe and convenient to ASU. DiAnn and Robert greeted us warmly and the entire time I felt exactly like I was visiting my friend and welcome in their home. It was easy to coordinate this trip, quick response. DiAnn and Robert allowed me and my daughter, and her two friends to join and we went on their relaxing pontoon boat ride. Then I got food and we ate on their patio overlooking the water. She also arranged for us to go to the club, and we played tennis, and swam. We could have used the gym, and played pool as well. DiAnn provided towels. The house is very clean, organic, warm and welcoming. Everything you need is there for a comfortable stay. DiAnn also made us a wonderful fruit, bagel, yogurt, coffee breakfast. I would highly recommend their home, and I have made new friends. Perfect!! 


DiAnn and Robert were simply awesome! We cannot say a bad word about their place - It was extremely comfortable and we felt right at home. Their home has so much personality and character and is situated on a beautiful lake within the suburbs. DiAnn and Robert are such a wonderful couple - they are very socialable and enjoy getting to know their guests and spending quality time with all the people they meet. They provided us with everything we needed from complimentary snacks, advice and recommendations on the local area to ensuring our stay was comfortable. We cannot wait to stay here again - there is so much to see and do!! We will definitely be booking again soon. Thanks again for everything, DiAnn and Robert - we are so glad to have met you!!


My parents came all the way from China to visit me and I let them stay with Dianne and Robert for about a week. Dianne and Robert are incredibly nice and kind people. My parents told me there is no way to describe how much they enjoyed staying with them in this beautiful house. Dianne & Robert took us on the boat to see the peaceful lake and we really had some wonderful times together share our food and culture. If my parents ever come back again, they are going to stay here without a doubt :0


Really beautiful home, great communication, amazing value. Book with DiAnn and Robert without hesitation - they'll do everything they can to make your stay comfortable!


Wonderful hosts! Answered all questions promptly and thoroughly and both and very hospitable:). Even offered snacks and wine to celebrate our recent wedding/honeymoon. Couldn't have had kinder hosts- Would stay definitely recommend this place and stay here again!


An exceptional AirBnb experience both in terms of the overall quality of the lodgings and the Lakes Community Clubhouse facilities provided, and too because of the extra personal touches our hosts bestowed upon us throughout our stay; to wit: in addition to the standard accommodations and facilities one might hope for in a top rated BnB, DiAnn and Robert showered us with many generous lagniappes, notably a bottle of white wine in the fridge in our bedroom on arrival, multifarious snacks and beverages, a guided gallery tour perusing the decor and all the amazing artifacts around their house/museum, and a sunset cruise around the lake aboard their pontoon boat; though I would have to say that the most treasured feature of our stay were those moments we spent chatting around the dining room table, or on the Villa patio overlooking the lake.


Special mention should be given to the fact that every aspect of their home was topnotch, from the first-rate appliances, crockery, and utensils, to the superlative bed linens and towels, and the top of the line shampoo and conditioner...and the tiptop toilet paper, to boot. DiAnn and Robert epitomize the meaning of going above and beyond, and my wife and I greatly appreciated their efforts to ensure we felt completely at home in their abode. I have no doubt we shall return to savor again their convivial hospitality.


Staying with DiAnn and Robert was a true gift. They are two of the most hospitable people I've ever met, and I felt completely at home in their place. Upon arrival, they offered me a printed handbook for their house along with local maps and recommendations for outings and adventures. Their home is incredibly peaceful, and it's situated on the shore of a manmade lake, a welcome oasis in the middle of hot, dry Tempe. They are close to Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Starbucks, and countless other stores and services. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. Ten Highlights of My Stay 1. Swimming in the heated pool at sunrise 2. Morning exercises and breakfast on the dock by the lake 3. Late night conversations that felt like I was visiting with long-time friends 4. DiAnn's beautiful, unique plants both inside and outside the house 5. Robert's peace-inducing fountains 6. Sitting by the fire pit overlooking the lake 7. The sunset cruise on the boat 8. Plenty of privacy and as much or as little interaction as I desired 9. A beautiful night of sleep after DiAnn and Robert purchased a brand new handmade organic, latex mattress topper to make sure I was comfortable 10. A beautiful kitchen that felt like home


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!


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 Villa is a lovely! 5 star! They provide everything ! The Pontoon was awesome and the ambience can't be beat! It is a very upscale property! Water fountains and night lights while sitting out by the Fire Pit. We enjoyed our stay very much while visiting AZ family. The Villa is close to many Grocery stores. The Owner's want to make sure you are happy and satisfied. They are lovely people! The beds are so comfortable!! The plants and gardens Dianne provides are something to see. It was a very enjoyable experience! We will be back! Thank you Robert and Dianne


Wonderful experience. The hosts we're amazing. Great details in comfort, privacy, very relaxing. Immaculate. They went above and beyond our expectations when our trip had some unexpected changes. We wound love to come back again. Thank you so much DiAnn and Robert! Brenda and Richard My Response We are so glad that we were able to accommodate your schedule change & of course so excited on your new Grand-baby! We enjoyed chatting about like interests & could not have asked for better guests. Next visit we will for sure get you out on the boat for a cruise on the lake!!! Hope to see you again soon. DiAnn & Robert


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!


DiAnn and Robert's home is a PERFECT stay. Their communication is incredible and they treat all of their guests like family. The amenities throughout their house are like a 5-star hotel. Everything is labeled and the house is stocked with everything you need. They have updated all of the appliances, TVs, and other electronics throughout the house. The back patio, lake, and pontoon boat are INCREDIBLE. What a relaxing way to spend a vacation. We were able to take the boat out, dock it at the local restaurant at the other side of the lake, and have a great lunch. We could not be more happy with our experience at this house. Highly recommended. We'll definitely be back.
