About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This rental property is located in one of Green Valley, Arizona's most attractive planned communities Quail Creek. This small community is a place filled with things to do. You will enjoy a luxurious rental home in a country club setting with access to multi-million dollar recreation facilities or quiet times to enjoy the perfect weather in a lounge chair in the back yard in the sun (or shade) or marvel at the number of stars in the night sky. Green Valley is truly green being the home of the largest pecan groves in North America and colorful desert filled with many different types of plants and animal life. Bonus: No charge North American long distance services included!!

Located in the beautiful area south of Tucson Arizona, Quail Creek commands a truly picturesque setting with the stunning Santa Rita Mountains providing postcard views. The surrounding area offers a multitude of things to do and see, including shopping centers, restaurants and more. Madera Canyon nearby is renowned for exotic bird watching and hiking trails in the cool pines. Downtown Tucson is only a half hour away, and the Tucson International Airport is within a 20-minute drive.

How about a side trip to Tombstone to stride through the OK Corral or visit the movie set at Old Tucson where many famous westerns were filmed. Green Valley has many small, unique stores as well as a large Wall-Mart, Fry's and Safeway. Tucson has several large fashion malls, an outlet mall, and 35 miles down the highway is Nogales, Mexico a bargainer’s paradise.

On site is the spectacular Quail Creek Golf Course (27 holes) which winds through the community. Each hole is a picture post card with the appropriate challenge for the beginner to the scratch golfer. The lavishly appointed Madera Clubhouse provides the perfect social atmosphere to meet people and it showcases a ballroom/auditorium, banquet room, library stocked with popular fiction, lounge, conference room, billiard room and a multi-purpose room to enjoy a variety of activities. Other on site activities include several tennis courts, lawn bowling, pickle ball and two pools one for cooling off, one designated for lane swimming, and an adjacent hot tub is perfect for those sore golfing muscles. The Grill Restaurant adjacent the Pro Shop serves up delicious meals at reasonable charges in a beautiful setting. There is a beautiful Anza Recreation Center with great exercise equipment and a brand new Arts and Technology center with activities such as woodworking and quilting/sewing.

Richard & Carol Dixon purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard & Carol Dixon chose Green Valley

We choose to purchase a home at Quail Creek as it is the prefect vacation community. A healthy lifestyle includes golfing, tennis, swimming, hiking or just a pleasant stroll down the street. Green Valley has a large selection of shopping and food choices plus a great selection of restaurants. Nothing is better than sitting in the back yard just before sunset with a glass of wine and looking into the spectacular Santa Rita mountains.

What makes this house unique

The on site 27 holes of golf are well maintained with a golf cart available in the garage. The Madera Clubhouse offers a beautiful setting to have an afternoon drink at the bar, book your self into the numerous club activities or join in to a community gathering. The newly renovated recreation center is spectacular with adjacent pools, hot tub, tennis courts and lawn bowl. The Grill Restaurant is next door with an amazing view of the golf course. It features an inexpensive menu from burgers to steaks with inexpensive wine too!!! Take advantage of the new Anza Recreation center and the very new Arts and Technology Center.

Wonderful stay in Green Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 month stay at the Stagecoach House. The weather was great as were the mountain views. The house was very clean and had everything we needed and more. The computer and printer were a nice added touch. Having our own golf cart (provided with rental) was great and made it very easy to get around Quail Creek. It also saved us money on golfing. The golf courses on site are very nice. The décor in this house is second to none, very well done. We have rented numerous places over the past 8 years and Richard and Carol have been one of easiest and nicest people we have dealt with to date. The Green Valley area is very nice and there are very many sightseeing adventures within 35 miles of here. We will come back to this area and this home ( if it is available) for sure. We would recommend this home and the area to anybody.

This was the perfect place! Everything was just as described - only better. We had everything we needed, and it was organized in such a way that was very convenient. The property was so nice! It was comfortable and very clean. We didn't have a problem with anything. The owners provided us with a great deal of information about the activities, attractions and restaurants in the area. They literally planned for everything! The golf, swimming, golf cart, bikes, patio, grill, tennis, animals, desert, and stars made this the perfect vacation! We would highly recommend this property, and plan to return next year.

This was our first visit to Quail Creek but it won't be our last! We were delighted with the excellent accommodations at Richard's and Carol's home. We very much appreciated the use of their golf cart as well as the bicycles they thoughtfully provided. The golf here and at nearby courses was fantastic and very challenging and we also enjoyed visiting the dessert museum, the airplane museum, the copper mine, Madera Canyon, Tubac and Patagonia. There is so much more to see so we will have to come back again.

The facilities at the Club House are first class and the staff as well as the people we met were all friendly and very helpful.

Once again we felt very privileged to share Dickson’s beautiful home.

Fantastic Southern Arizona Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second (3) month stay at Richard and Carol's Quail Creek home. What a total pleasure. This home has everything you could possibly want. No matter if you decide to stay for a week or for and extended period of time, you'll not want for a single thing. Well equipped and clean this property is conviently located within walking distance of the resort's pool, dining area, fitness center and club house. The neighborhood is friendly and we've always felt welcome. Peaceful and quiet the backyard view of the Santa Rita Mountains became our evening tonic. Evening star gazing a must...just sit and watch! If you're lucky maybe you'll see javalina's, coyotes, rabbits, hawks or maybe even a bobcat! There's more than enough to see and do in this part of Arizona. There's the Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park (East & West), the Titan Missle Museum, Mexico, Madera Canyon, the 'Pit' Copper Mine, etc. Also, there are day trips to Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, Patagonia, Tuscon, Tombstone, etc. Honestly, if you choose the Dixon's Arizona Ranch for you're stay away from home, you'll not go wrong. Matter of fact, we're anticipating another! Mike and Jane

We first spent a month here at the Dixon family home back in 2009. Last year it was two months and this year, it has been three wonderful months from February through April. Quail Creek is a great place to spend the winter and the Dixon home is now 'our' home away from home. What could be more enjoyable than a day of golf or a hike in the Madera Mountains (just a hop skip and a jump away) followed by a relaxing glass or two of wine on the patio watching the reflection of the setting sun on the Santa Rita Mountains. You can be as busy as you want to be or as lazy as you want to be and, by the way, you don't need an excuse it be lazy around comes naturally, at least for me!! Last year, I established a personal record and read ten novels during our two month visit. This year, highlights of our stay included a four day trip to Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam, as well as a visit to the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monumnet and a night time visit to Kitts Peak Observatory to look at the stars and the planets through an actual telescope. Reservations are necessary but it's well worth it if you enjoy astronomy!

Thank you Richard and Carol for sharing your beautiful home and your little bit of paradise here in Green Valley and Quail Creek! We'll be back!

Happy trails!!
