Golfers!!! Its central location and easy access to freeways makes it convenient to enjoy all that makes Phoenix so special to golf. You can golf here, or at one of 33 other courses within a 20 minute drive. There are the truly magnificent courses, for the scratch golfers. The medium courses, for mid handicappers. And the wide open fairways, very forgiving, inexpensive courses that I love. If you wish, grab your pull cart, walk out the front door. Take a left and walk 6 minutes to Augusta Ranch club house.

Huge jungle Gyms, basketball court, baseball diamonds, beach volleyball, soccer pitch, and large field with paths for bike riding, skateboarding, etc. Our home is very kid friendly! We have bunk beds, a playroom with toys, games & kids books, Playstation 2 (with games), and movies for all ages. We have most things for babies/toddlers that are hard to bring on the plane: playpen/crib, high chair, infant swing, diaper genie, bottle warmer, baby monitor, stroller, wagon, 4 bikes, small bike (with trainning wheels), another bike for 6 to 12 year old, small plastic mattress(for possible bed wetters)everything you'll need for the kids from infants to toddlers to pre-teens. No need to travel with anything.

About Chris Johnson

Our family loves to escape the long cold Alberta winters. Even the dog hates going home after 3 weeks of high 60s in Dec/Jan. Nice to know how cold it is back home while golfing.

Chris Johnson purchased this house in 2008

Why Chris Johnson chose Augusta Ranch

Phoenix is just 2 hour and 40 minutes from Calgary on a direct flight. Florida was just to far to travel with small girls. Lots of golf, no bugs, or the turbulent weather of South Florida.

What makes this house unique

If you are traveling with kids, your diaper bag will be smaller. Great for singles and large groups. We have a very large open area that spans from the kitchen, through the dining area and in to the living area

Perfect Place to Stay with Kids!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect place for my family. We had two infants, a three year old, and six adults. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep at night and relax during the day. I especially appreciated having baby items in the home for us to use. We personally used the pack 'n' play, high chair, wagon, toys and kids cups & dishes, but there were several other items available including a baby monitor, gate, and swing. We even found the leaf for the table and folding chairs in the garage, so we could all easily eat at the dinner table. The house was fully stocked with towels, extra sheets, pillows, toilet paper, Kleenex, soap, paper towels, and lots of food (that others had left behind). It was SO helpful not having to purchase condiments, spices, and the odds 'n' ends items you need for cooking.

The location of the home was great! It was in a gated community and we felt very safe. Restaurants and grocery stores were right around the corner (and a Starbucks too!). It was easy to travel to any place in the Phoenix area.

The owner, Chris, provided excellent communication prior, during, and after our trip. He responded quickly to an texts or phone calls. Plus, he is super friendly and genuinely cared about making sure our time at his home was a positive experience. I was extremely impressed!

I would highly recommend this home to any family with children. When we return to Mesa, we will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's Response: Wow Heidi, thanks for the kinds words! You make it very easy to be a great host when communication between host and guest is as good as it was with us. You asked all the important questions prior to booking. Ummmm, all I have to say is many thanks and we hope to host your family again if given the chance.

Mesa getaway

  • 4 of 5

This property is wonderfully located close to shopping, golf, tennis courts and many other recreational activities. The home is in a gated community with a great pool and hot tub within easy walking distance. The home had three bedrooms with a master suite. There are bunk beds and a third single bed in the third bedroom, so great for families with younger children. There were lots of games for kids, bikes and golf clubs and pool toys. We thought the home was a good value for the price. There were stairs, so not good if anyone cannot climb.

Chris provided all the information requested from him in a very timely manner and I was very pleased with that.
