Short-term rentals spur debate in Las Sendas

By Mark Moran | East Valley Tribune

When Brett and Erica Russo moved into their house in 2018, they felt they had finally found their dream home.

They chose Las Sendas, an established series of gated enclaves in northeast Mesa, for the views, the golf, the location and the elevation.

At almost 1,700 feet, Las Sendas is nestled up against the Tonto National Forest and sits a little higher than the rest of the Valley, providing slightly cooler temperatures in the summertime, sweeping views of Phoenix, its suburbs, mountains, sunsets, wildlife and wilderness.

“Thanks to those views,” Brett Russo said, “this is one of the most special places in the Valley. Our dream was always to live here. It was pin-drop quiet.

Everyone on the block was friendly, cordial, and always willing to help each other out – exactly how a close-knit neighborhood should be, Russo said.

But that started to change with a dramatic increase in AirBnB, VRBO and other vacation home rental options on the market.
