Short Term Rental Solutions ??

As many of you see here on a regular basis, We have a group of owners and a few management
companies that are still renting weekly or weekend rentals here. This last few months there were security issues with at least 4 short rental units here. This week a group of residents met to start finding 1 or 2 folks per building to document the units that have continuous short term rentals happening. We all know as FULL TIME Residents who lives in our building and who has those few units in each building that are CONTINUOUS WEEKEND & WEEKLY RENTERS

We have  9 buildings as of today with residents that are documenting these units, To which every month can be turned over to Wayne and Board..We have discussed at many board meeting about increasing fines to deter these money monger owners who rent here with no concern about our rules and regulations

Anasazi Talk has also compiled a list of Realtors we suggest per other owners recommendations and also Management companies that are recommended that have been on the up and up here, This list will also give you the names of Realtors and Management companies that residents have had past issues with.

If you would like a copy of the Recommended and Not recommended Realtors and Management companies ...Please email us at we will furnish you with this info!!

If you would like to be a resident that watches these kind of units in your building, please contact also at same email as above and we will have someone meet with you

If we all work in unison and acquire the info it will be of value to all residents here. Full Time or Winter residents.We cant expect Wayne and crew to watch as they are not here nights or weekends..This should be a community watch effort to try to help Board and Management company start to address this issue that has been long plaguing our community. Lets not let a few bad apples abuse our community.

Another Attempted Break In Build 5 ?

On Monday a Couple who lives on the 2nd floor stopped me to express a problem they are having.

.On 3 occasions in the last week they have been awakened by someone jiggling their door knob or trying to put key in and trying to get in door

On Sunday night 5/25/2015 it happened again and security was called, The guy was gone when
security arrived.This is a very nice young couple and his concern was when his girlfriend is home alone is what worries him most

The resident has stated that on 2 occasions this week he heard the door knob jiggling, he looked out peephole and saw man tried his door and then walked to opposite unit at opposite end of hall, before fleeing down stairwell.

He was dressed in all black on all occasions.He has now put mace at front door ?  Security has assured him they will pass this info to other officers here

Just keep an extra eye out in your buildings for those that do not look familiar .

Our Security Officers do an outstanding job here and we are fortunate to have the same group of officers that know who belongs here and who does not

Vendors Violations

As we all know we have a very strong rule here about vendors on Sundays , Holidays and after 5pm

Unfortunately  this rule is being broken on a regular basis here, This last week we have had workers working on a unit and have been told twice about the noise and construction at 7am in morning,

 this unit also had owners contacted on Thursday and yet On Monday morning (Memorial Day) we had workers here making noise at 7:15am. I then went and told them they had to leave as no vendors were allowed on Holidays...after a bit of banter they decided they should leave..

.NOT BEFORE WAKING ENTIRE BUILDING 5 UP ..2rd time in a week workers started at 7:15am

We have tried to be extra patient here with new neighbors moving in BUT after 2 weeks of cleaning the hall every day due to drywall all over rugs and elevators and endless construction..They may wear out their welcome before they even move in ??

Then the Pool man got heckled by about 10 residents as he also started to blow pool 3 with blower at 8am on
Monday.....Not his fault as he was directed to be here...


Its getting a bit ridicules here that sleep in on Sundays and Holidays is becoming extinct

Letters to owners don't seem to work...Last week Wayne the workers were here with 4 trucks at 6:30 am in build 5 and started making noise and we had to call office...

WAYNE ???   You were on property..You don't see all these vendors here parked on your rounds in morning at 6:30am   ??? Why should we have to call when they are right out in open  at that time

Update on Disturbance / Break In

Well after further investigation and talking with other neighbors, It seems the lady that was with the resident/renter?  in Building 16. Actually


The owner was asleep and heard voices in his condo and woke to find a stranger in HIS CONDO !!


As he walked out of bedroom she was in HIS HOUSE??

Other neighbors in building 5 have also remarked today that the same people are a constant ruckus on patio in evening, My next door neighbor who has lived here 15 years said it an ongoing problem

They live in building 16 and were so wasted they thought building 5 was their building ??    YES Under the influence of ??

Is this  a resident or renter, 
If a renter Was the OWNER NOTIFIED ?/

These 2 people were so wasted they could not walk..she was trying to drag him as he layed flat on sidewalk, hitting him and yelling for over 90 minutes before we had to call security

Breaking into a unit and no one was arrested ???The renter in codo broken into did not want to deal with charges or hassle involved... ....Sure makes folks feel unsafe with these kind of people as residents or renting here...

Too our Board ...Maybe this is a circumstance that should be discussed ...  Renters here that cause this kind of issue needs to be dealt with much more serious than in the past....

This was an issue of someone breaking into a persons house at 1am in the morning ??

I will look to discussion on this issue at next board meeting...Many have remarked the last couple days ....All wondering how Board is going to deal with this very serious breech on Thursday night.A couple older folks in building said they are a bit scared about leaving windows open ??/

We should not have to lock up and close windows on 70 degree night and not enjoy the weather here and worry about a couple nuts breaking in OUR OPEN WINDOWS...??

Another Late Night Disturbance / Break In

Last night around 11:30 pm folks in building 5 started to hear a loud ruckus and the sound of people fighting, It dulled still around 12:15 am when the noise escalated from the second floor of building 5, and security was called..

Upon arrival they found a gentleman named Sean from build 16 and a lady friend so wasted she was dragging him along hallway and the screaming and fighting  continued..

Turns out they were so wasted they were at the wrong building..Trying to get into another residents unit who also was sleeping in building 5...

By 1am Phoenix police arrived and the lady was put in handcuffs and removed ?...Thank you Security for showing quickly after being called...

Now the question ...Renter or Resident ?? If so who is owner or management on this unit ?  ....

1:30am and many residents out on balconies watching this fiasco.....

The Small Touchs

Just a thanks for the small touches added as of late to the property, With all the big projects being completed, many have not noticed a lot of small changes going on also. One of many posts that board members and committee should not only walk grounds but look over each part of complex from the higher floors..So much is missed from just ground level view.

One was after the tree trimming, It looks nice from ground level but from upper floors it is a world of difference..I bought my unit for the view of pool and extended green I could see, But for many years it was blocked...The tree trimming was one of the best things to happen here with new board. Many I spoke with are also very pleased at how it opens the view again

Now for a great small touch I see Wayne has planted a small cactus garden on pool 3 heater building...when asked him about it, he said he saw how it looked from above when he was in a unit on higher floor and decided to improve it..Well It looks great ,, Small things that make a big  difference And it looks great from upstairs units, many in building 5 have also expressed how good it looks.......Thank You


Now we need to get the tops of umbrella's on tables to be painted also, lol.. They have become quite shabby looking, Another item not noticeable from ground level..Maybe time to paint them to match the buildings ?? Just a thought !!

13 coolest summer things to do around Arizona

The coolest thing about the Arizona landscape is its diversity — you can find a comfortable
retreat any time of the year. In the summer, that usually means traveling to higher elevations. Just a few hours on the road can turn a hot summer day into a cool retreat. Here are some ideas for beating the heat in Arizona's high country.
Summer Scenic Skyride
Take a ride to the top of an extinct volcano, where a Forest Service ranger will answer your questions on the biology and geology of the region. The summit is 11,500 feet in elevation — so bring a jacket — and offers for breathtaking views of northern Arizona and beyond.
Details: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Fridays-Sundays through mid-October. Open Mondays on holiday weekends. From Flagstaff, drive 7 miles northwest on U.S. 180 to Snowbowl Road. Turn right and go 7 miles to the lodge. $15, $10 for 8-12 and 65-69, free for age 7 or younger and for age 71 or older. 928-779-1951,
Lava River Cave
This mile-long lava-tube cave was formed roughly 700,000 years ago by molten rock that erupted from a volcanic vent in nearby Hart Prairie. The top, sides and bottom of the flow cooled and solidified first, after which the insides of the lava river continued to flow, emptying out the cave. Dress appropriately, with warm clothes and sturdy shoes. The cave is as cool as 42 degrees even in summer, and you may even find some ice inside. The rocks are always sharp and slippery, too. Bring two or three sources of light in case one fails; it can be very dark just a mile in.
Details: Drive 9 miles north of Flagstaff on U.S. 180 and turn west on Forest Road 245 (at milepost 230). Continue 3 miles to FR171 and turn south 1 mile to where FR 171B turns left a short distance to Lava River Cave.
Scenic lift rides
Sunrise Park Resort, between Pinetop-Lakeside and Eagar-Springerville, has plenty of things to do in summer. The ski resort, owned and operated by the White Mountain Apache Tribe, offers scenic chairlift rides and mountain-bike rentals. Bikers can use the lift to carry their bikes up Sunrise Mountain, then cruise down ski trails with such cool names as Collarbone, Slippery Rocks, Pile, Yard Sale and Easy Out.
Details: Lifts run 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. About 28 miles east of Pinetop-Lakeside on Arizona 273. Call for bike-rental rates. A $20 mountain-bike pass and helmet are required (bring yours or rent one). Lift tickets are $10 for non-bikers and $5 for age 65 or older and age 12 or younger.
Mogollon Rim camping
You won't need much help finding a great campground on or below the Mogollon Rim: Just look for the little tent symbol on your map, or drive around until you find one. But for those who need more focus, consider Alderwood Campground on Haigler Creek, a water-chiseled canyon popular for its trout fishing and swimming holes. No drinking water available.
To get there, take Arizona 260 from Payson 24 miles and turn right on Forest Road 291. Drive 3 miles and turn right on FR 200. Continue 6 miles through Haigler Canyon Recreation Site to FR 202A. Turn right and follow this unpaved road for half a mile to the site. Better yet, find your own special place. For those willing to haul in their water and haul out their trash, the national forests offer lots of dispersed camping. Observe all fire restrictions.
Still looking for ideas? See the Arizona Highways Camping Guide:100 of the Best Campgrounds in Arizona, by Kelly Vaughn Kramer, (Arizona Highways, 2013, $22.95).
Grasshopper Point
Nestled in Oak Creek Canyon is a large swimming hole known as Grasshopper Point, a day-use site that's popular with swimmers and picnickers alike. The swimming hole is shaded and cool. Cliff jumping and diving are discouraged because of hidden rocks and the varying depth of the water. Three popular trails are accessible from the Grasshopper Point parking lot; Allen's Bend goes north and connects with Casner Canyon Trail; it also goes south and connects with Huckaby Trail. No camping, fires, pets or glass. Bring your own drinking water.
Details: Drive north from Sedona for about 2 miles on U.S. 89A. Grasshopper Point will be on the eastern side of the highway.
Tonto Natural Bridge State Park
Tonto Natural Bridge is an impressive span: Standing 183 feet high over a 400-foot-long tunnel that measures 150 feet wide, it's believed to be the largest natural travertine bridge in the world. Prospector David Gowan, the first White man to document the bridge, hid out in a cave beneath the span while being chased by Apaches. Despite that unfriendly welcome, Gowan claimed squatter's rights to the land and persuaded his family to emigrate from Scotland to settle there. The half-mile Gowan Loop Trail leads down the bank of the creek — and several steep flights of steps — to an observation deck near the tunnel under the bridge. Two other short trails provide good views of the park's features.
Details: 10 miles north of Payson off Arizona 87. 928-476-4202,
Woods Canyon Lake
Woods Canyon Lake covers 158 acres atop the Mogollon Rim east of Payson. Because of its proximity to the Valley, it's enormously popular during summer. Woods Canyon has a store and boat rentals, and is regularly stocked with trout. The Woods Canyon Lake Trail is an easy, mostly flat 5.5-mile loop around the water. Camping options include nearby Aspen and Spillway campgrounds. Swimming is not allowed.
Details: From Payson, take Arizona 260 about 35 miles east to Forest Road 300 and turn west. 928-333-4301,
Grand Canyon North Rim
Yes, it takes seven or eight hours to get there from Phoenix. And it's open only from mid-May to mid-November. But you're really missing out if you've seen the Grand Canyon only from the South Rim. The North Rim has less development and fewer services, and even on a busy day, it doesn't feel as crammed. Have lunch at Grand Canyon Lodge and drink in the view. Relax on a leather sofa in the glass-walled lounge or in one of the rocking chairs on the patio.
Trails as short as a quarter-mile lead to awe-inspiring views. (There are plenty of longer trails, too.) And where most of the trails at the South Rim go into the canyon, many at the North Rim stay on top. There are scenic drives and overlooks aplenty. Treat yourself to a night in a Western Cabin, with two queen beds and a front porch. Other cabins are available, as are motel rooms and a campground. Reservations go fast.
Details: 928-638-7888, 877-386-4383,
Chiricahua Mountains
For a lesser-known wildlife destination, consider a visit to Portal, a tiny community on the eastern edge of the Chiricahuas in southeastern Arizona. The Chiricahuas, where the Apache chief Cochise hid from the "long knives," is a wonderland of bizarre rock formations and craggy canyons. Portal is near the New Mexico state line, in an area that doesn't have many highways.
Unless you take a long ride on some scenic gravel back roads, you have to drive a few miles into New Mexico, through the town of Rodeo, then turn west back into Arizona to get to Portal. Cave Creek Ranch is a relaxing getaway. Rooms start at $95. A large room with a kitchenette and beautiful river-rock fireplace starts at $135. Cottages start at $140 per night.
Details: Take Interstate 10 east 243 miles to New Mexico 80, turn south and drive 28 miles to Portal Road, then turn west for 7 miles. 855-558-2334, For more about things to do in Portal, go to
Big Lake
This hub of activity is one of the most popular lakes in the White Mountains. There's a store with supplies and boat rentals. Four campgrounds ring the lake, and several others are a few miles away. There are campsites for everything from a two-person tent to an 82-foot rig. You can fish for rainbow, brook, cutthroat and Apache trout, and hiking opportunities abound. Motors are limited to 10 horsepower. The lake is in the Big Lake Recreation Area of Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, off Arizona 261 about 26 miles southwest of Eagar.
Details: 928-521-1387,
Lyman Lake
This 1,500-acre reservoir was created for irrigation, but it also serves as a state park with boating and camping facilities. The lake, 6,000 feet above sea level, is fed by snowmelt from Mount Baldy and Escudilla Mountain. Lyman Lake is one of the few places in northeastern Arizona with no size restrictions on boats, but you have to bring your own — no rentals are available.
The western end of the lake is a designated no-wake area for anglers. The lake is stocked with walleye, catfish and largemouth bass. There also is a designated swimming area. The park has a campground for tents and RVs, along with several yurts and four cabins with air-conditioning. At-large camping is allowed in some areas.
Details: The park is off U.S. 180-191, about 15 miles north of Springerville. 928-337-4441,
Hawley Lake
This lake, on the Fort Apache Reservation, looks out on hills of spruce, aspen and pine. Hawley is one of the more scenic and easily accessible lakes on the reservation. It's a great summer getaway, offering a campground and rental cabins.
The lake is known for rainbow trout, but it also holds Apache, brook and brown trout. A $9 tribal license is required to fish on the reservation. Buy one online or at Sportsman's Warehouse locations around the Valley. Check tribal regulations and have a map before traveling on the reservation.
Details: Hawley Lake, about 30 miles east of Show Low, is reached by Arizona 260, then south on Arizona 473. Recreation, 928-338-4385, Cabin rentals, 928-369-1753, cabins.html.
Play in the pines
The Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course is a playground in the trees for kids and adults. Roped bridges and logs, Tarzan ropes, zip lines, nets, tightropes, climbing walls — the course is designed to test your stamina, agility, problem-solving skills and mental toughness. It's also just plain fun. The highest part of the course is about 60 feet off the ground.
Details: Open daily through Sept. 10. Groups start the course every 30 minutes, beginning at 8:30 or 9 a.m. Fort Tuthill County Park, 3 miles south of Flagstaff offInterstate 17. $45 for the full course for age 16 or older, $25 for ages 7-11. Spots can be reserved online. 888-259-0125,

Time to Raise Your Rental Rates ??

After last nights story on news and the demand for rentals in Az, This may be the time for those owners to think about rental increase, We have seen a rise in selling prices here !! 

 And there seems to be a demand for winter visitors here..So rental rates should match selling prices ??  Time to capitalize on our prime property.

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Maybe you've noticed it in your neighborhood, or as you've driven around town, large apartment projects being built.

It's a boom that will add tens of thousands of new units across the valley.

There are some projects underway and more to come as more people decide they would rather rent than buy.

Developers are building fast to keep up with the demand.

East valley, west valley, central valley, there is a big boom underway in apartment construction.

Mike Kron is a developer who is breaking ground on a 354 unit apartment complex in Mesa. Southern Avenue Villas is hoping to attract young families with a lifestyle community feel and a long list of amenities.

"Major club house, fitness center, business center, basketball court, cabanas, sand volleyball court, and a dog park," said Mike Kron.

Valley wide apartment construction is hopping, it's a shift away from traditional ownership to a rental lifestyle.

Rental brokers ABI Multi-Family said there are 56 projects underway, which will add more than 13,000 apartment units in the valley.

In the pipeline according to the company, 62 more apartment communities. That will add another 16,000 apartment units in the Phoenix valley.

Valley renters can absorb that inventory according to Kron, as people continue to avoid buying a home.

"It's tougher to get loans these days from both personal and professional experience. I know lenders are tougher, and a lot of people are shying away from single family homes and saying, you know an apartment isn't such a bad deal. We get to pay our check, they take care of all the maintenance for us, all we have to do is enjoy the community and that's not a bad thing for a lot of people," said Kron.

One question remains, is anyone alarmed that we will they overbuild in apartments in the valley?

Kron says with the Mesa Southern Project the demographics indicate we don't have enough housing and all of this will be absorbed very quickly.

Too Much Walking ????????????

Well here is a new waste of security and management time !!   Seems we have someone that wants to file a complaint that their neighbors upstairs walk too much ???? REALLY !!

 This had been reported to security , management and board..Cmon folks we live in a multi family
unit here and I could see if someone had TV or stereo up way to loud in late hours..BUT People should not be able to walk at night ??

This is just  ridicules, how some of these complaints even gain merit to be discussed...But yes it is happening...

To those that are complaining..Maybe its time to buy a house ..........We have finally gotten a community that has started to work together for the first time in many years, These kind of silly complaints need to be lost in the wind, so we can deal with legitimate problems here.

One the discussion that is opening in community about FHA Loans approved here possibly ???
