About the owner: We are a retired couple from Silicon Valley. We fell in love with Starr Pass the first time we visited in the fall of 1999. We are wine lovers with a cellar of about 330 bottles. We try to attend the wine classes up at the Marriott and enjoy working out at their fitness center. We spend time golfing (about 3 times a week) as we are members of the Starr Pass Golf Club. We have 3-1/2 year old cat named Aimee. We own five timeshares so we know what travelers will find important in a unit they rent from us. We are detail oriented and will take good care of our guests. We have two grown children - our son is 26 and our daughter is 34. Our son, Joey IV, lives in Tucson and helps us manage our condo. He is a scratch golfer. Our daughter, Vanessa, lives in San Diego which is only a 6-1/2 hour drive. If you want to visit San Diego, we can provide you with lots of native tips. We have been married almost 28 years. Joe has a transportation background and Suzanne worked as a Global Travel Manager. We love cats and welcome yours when you rent with us. We like dogs as well but be careful here about leaving your pets indoors and keeping an eye on them. The coyotes are plentiful and would love them as an appetizer or dinner. The dogs will love their daily walks.
Why the Owner Chose Starr Pass: We retired in 2009 and moved to Starr Pass. We bought our home ten years prior to that and kept it rented until we were ready to retire. We love being retired and playing golf, working out and entertaining with our neighbors. We chose Starr Pass as our permanent residence since we had heard such nice things about the area. We like the fact it is remote yet close to everything. The neighborhood has similar values to ours. It made sense to buy the condo since it is something we could rent and easily manage living so close. We enjoy meeting travelers/tourists from all over the world. We hope to make lots of new friends who will continue to rent our lovely condo.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our favorite ritual is to wake up and read the local paper with a cup of coffee. We then work out at the JW. We like to read in the afternoons or work on the condo. During the summers we sometimes rent movies to watch during the heat of the day.
We enjoy golfing 2-3 days a week. There is a fun ladies/men's group here at Starr Pass. It is a very challenging course. Let one of us know if you need someone to golf with.
We like spending time up at the JW Marriott which for us is about 2 miles. We enjoy their wine classes and dining at Primo or the Signature Grill. The tequila toasts nightly are a lot of fun and then we stay for a blood orange margarita or martini for my husband next to the fire pits.
