Excellent Home in a Well Established Golf Community
Excellent Home in a Well Established Golf Community
We rented Vern and Sherry's home for the month of April, 2012. It was well furnished and equiped with no shortfalls whatsoever, including many staples and extras not commonly found in a vacation rental.. They were excellent hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. The rental arrangements were well organized, including having Vern and Sherry meet us at their home upon our arrival. Sun City Festival is a very nice community, and is located a short drive immediately west of Sun City Grand. We managed to get in 2-3 golf games per week at the community's golf course. Having Vern's golf cart to drive up to the Sage Centre and the Copper Canyon Golf course was most definitely a well appreciated extra. There is plenty of opportunity to go biking or hiking, including a must not miss trip to the nearby Tank Mountains.We would definitely recommend this vacation rental for anyone considering a trip to the Phoenix area.

Owner response: Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We really appreciate your feedback and are happy you enjoyed your stay!
A warm welcoming place!
A warm welcoming place!
We rented Sherry and Vern's house for the month of December 2012. We found the whole experience very pleasant as they were both very nice people to deal with. They answered all our questions promptly and were organized with the rental agreement, deposit details, securing our monthly membership at the Sage Centre, organizing our arrival, etc. Most questions were answered before we could think to ask them! The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It was clean and shiny when we arrived. We had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. In particular the kitchen had everything we needed for making meals and entertaining over the Christmas season. The pantry was also well stocked with any needed staples. We appreciated the use of the two bicycles and the golf cart which we used to run out for the newspaper and for local visits. It was also a pleasant surprise to find a nice selection of DVDs so we could veg out and watch movies on occasion. I can't think of anything that we needed that wasn't there. The nearby Sage Centre has an excellent gym and pool. We also ate at the Indigo Grill at the Golf Club a couple of times and would certainly recommend it. The house is very well situated for nearby walking and hiking in the desert and the White Tank Mountains. I have to say we truly felt we were staying in a home and not in a rental unit and within a day we felt it was our home. All in all the best rental experience I have had. So many thanks to Sherry and Vern for making it so.

Wonderful and Quiet!

Stayed at Sherry and Vern's home in September 2012. The house is excellent: clean, beautifully decorated, and in a lovely, quiet, 55+ community. Vern and Sherry are also perfect landlords. They were accessible to answer any questions I had and made special efforts to make my stay most comfortable, including getting an additional TV channel so I could watch Thursday night NFL games. I would recommend this home without hesitation.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are retired Canadians who love to escape the long, cold winters and love the United States! Sherry grew up in Tennessee & Texas and Vern is a Canadian farm boy through & through! He worked for a grain company for 40 years before retiring the same year as Wayne Gretzky....the other 'Great One'....we won't tell you what year that was as Vern looks much too young to have been retired THAT long! Sherry retired after 28 years, eight as a paralegal and twenty years with the Department of Justice. She then started buying real estate as a 'hobby' that turned into a business. On the side she also had a wedding business, works with refugees, conducts the Rescue Mission choir & served as a music pastor. for a couple years. Vern has worked along side Sherry in these endeavors and has a sprinkler system business himself that he dabbles in during the hot summer months. We have two amazing adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law and three beautiful grandsons that we miss soooo much when we go south... We are thankful for Skyppe!!!....We enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures and recognize that we are abundantly blessed. We are active in our church communities in both Canada & the US and believe it is encumbent on the blessed to help the less fortunate.
Why the Owner Chose Buckeye:
When we retired, we bought a place in Hawaii first (it is also on vrbo) and were looking for a place closer to their home in Canada as the flight to Hawaii was a day/night long and 'hard on the system'! We had honed in on Palm Springs but heard about the Del Webb Active Community lifestyle and specifically Sun City Festival from our brother-in-law who had just bought here. He said, 'Forget Palm Springs, Come to the Festival!' We were intrigued but felt too young to be in a retirement community and decided to 'just' check it out...we stayed in the Sun City Festival vacation villas and sure enough....Sun City Festival seemed different, for one thing, the community was younger than most...(it is a 45 plus community to buy and a 55 plus age requirement for at least one spouse to rent). The people were warm & friendly and the golf club, restaurant and services superior! We bought a little spot of desert paradise and have never looked back! Since we are Canadians and have limited time to stay in the US, we have split their time between Hawaii & Arizona and rent out the condos accordingly.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
What really sold us on Sun City Festival was the pool area! We LOVE beaches and spent over 12 winters in Mexico however, it had not felt as safe in the past couple of years. Sun City Festivals pool area reminds us of the upscale resorts in Cancun & Puerto Vallarta. It is beautiful, well kept and truly looks and feels like paradise! We both love to golf and the Copper Canyon Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole Troon run course with waterfalls and mountain and desert views. It even attracts golfers from Scottsdale where golf courses are plentiful....a challenging well kept course that is 'usually' a pleasure to play.....(depending on our scores, of course!) The Sage Centre houses a recreational centre that offers water aerobics and numerous other classes such as zumba, yoga, tai chi, weight ball classes. etc. The fitness center/gym is second to none and there is a lifestyle instructor who even offers individualized fitness training for those who want to stay active and keep in shape. Beautiful Tennis courts, pickle ball courts, bocce ball courts, pool table, woodwork shop, quilting, pottery club, paper art club, painting (fine arts) club, pet club, travel club, hiking club, choir, golf club, putters club, adult continuing education are just a few of the activities offered here. You name it, they have it here and if they don't have it, you are welcome to start a club of your interest! Truly an amazing community and a great way to stay healthy and active in our golden years : )
