About Deanna & John

Our family has lived in Queen Creek, Arizona for over a decade. We love living in and exploring sunny, beautiful Arizona. Some of our passions include traveling, hiking, entertaining friends & family, organic gardening, road trips to anywhere, and taking our fur-kiddos for romps in the park.

Deanna & John purchased this house in 2009

Why Deanna & John chose Florence

South San Tan Valley is a beautiful area bordering Queen Creek and Florence. The home is only 3 miles from Anthem at Merrill Ranch/Poston Butte Golf Course and only 5 miles from the Golf Club at Johnson Ranch in San Tan Valley. The location offers the same local amenities as being in Queen Creek and is a haven for golfers and outdoor enthusiasts with 6 nearby golf courses (and 1 on-site course) and many hiking, biking and horseback trails and scenic roadways. If you enjoy the outdoors you'll love the area!

What makes this house unique

Here you’ll find a quiet refuge from your easy day trips around the state, or stay close and golf the on-site course at the Oasis Golf course, which offers reasonable green fees during peak season. Or choose one of the other 6 nearby golf courses, hike or bike the Sonoran desert and the nearby San Tan mountain range, see the Casa Grande ruins, visit the Olive Mill Company or Shnepf Farms for unique tours, eats and local gourmet gifts, or just kick-back and enjoy the blue skies and star-lit nights poolside. You'll find eateries, Starbucks, Wal-Mart Supercenter, grocery stores, major banks & pharmacies, restaurants, salons, and a YMCA that offers a pool, wall-rock climbing, and fitness classes within a few minutes of the home.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here in Arizona. The home was the perfect size for us to share with family. We slept 10 people with plenty of room to spare. We were even able to host a family dinner for our extended family that lives in the area. The kitchen was well furnish. The bedroom had plenty of space and the 2 main living spaces were wonderful. We were able to send the kids all upstairs to play while the adults visited in the living room/kitchen area. The pool was lots of fun and we enjoyed the outdoor living space as well. We were able to use the BBQ grill for dinner and that was an unexpected convenience. We had plenty of bedding and towels and we couldn't have asked for anything more. I would highly recommend this location and working with Deanna was amazing! She also texted to check and make sure we had everything we needed after our first night there. I'm sure we will look into renting this location the next time we come to visit family.

Open and Cozy home, Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over Easter weekend. House was clean and inviting. We loved the pool in the back yard and pool table upstairs.

The extra pull out beds were great. We had our nephew and 3 nieces stay the night; worked perfect!

We will be back and hope to stay here again!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a few homes on this site and this one tops them all. It had everything you could possibly need for a home away from home (and more). The pool was amazing for the kids and temp was always so comfortable with heater. The bikes left for renters was a pleasant surprise and we were able to take a sunset ride. I definitely recommend this home and would go back!

Fantastic home. Perfect for family.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Deanna and John for sharing your fantastic home.

Everything was amazing - starting with Deanna and John ... and their thourough and quick responses to all of our questions.

Next, the house was pristine with all of the amenities needed to truly make this a home away from home experience.

Finally, we had toddlers to preteens who we're all thrilled with the house ... especially the pool, the billiard table, board games and movies!

I would mark this trip and home down as one of the best vacation experiences we have had!

Thank you

Not a Bad Word to Say

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! Let me set the scene, we originally were staying with my MIL until she was unexpectedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Due to the rapid progression and her need for rest we decided to search for accommodation that would suit my three kids, myself and my hubby and family that would be coming to met us ranging from 12 weeks to 70+. This place suited everyone, it was clean, plenty of space, felt welcoming and homely and had the most amazingly comfortable beds I've ever slept in when travelling. The pool was fantastic for the kids and adults alike with a range of depths, the billiard table and assortment of games was great for everyone, and the kitchen was well equipped, clean and with plenty of space in the pantry for groceries. I cannot emphasise how much this felt like a home rather than a rental and when we hosted family gatherings everyone commented on how great the house was. Just as amazing was our dealings with Deanna and John, thank you guys for all your assistance along the way. We would not hesitate to contact you if we needed accommodation in the area again and wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone who is considering staying.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home. It had a great enclosed yard for our two small dogs. Our children and grand-children also loved the heated swimming pool, large back yard, pool table, WII games and ample space to spread out! Much of our time was spent outdoors relaxing or visiting with friends and family, in the pool or sitting at the table. The house is situated close to shopping, restaurants, golf and many nearby attractions! We appreciated the free WI-FI and the quick responses to any questions or needs by the homeowners--Deanna & John. We will be staying again in this lovely house as it was such a great fit for our family!

The south San Tan Valley area is a beautiful area that borders Queen Creek and Anthem at Merrill Ranch in Florence. Here you’ll find a quiet refuge from your day trips around the state. Or stay close and choose between the on site 9-hole Oasis Golf course or 6 other nearby courses. Hike or horseback ride the San Tan Mountain range, see the Casa Grande ruins or visit the Olive Mill Company, Shnepf Farms, and St Anthony's Greek Monastery for unique tours, eats, and local gifts. Or check out the historic towns of Florence, Globe & Miami for antiquing and old adobe architecture. Maybe you would prefer to cycle through the beautiful Sonoran desert or just kick-back and enjoy the blue skies and starry nights alongside your own private pool. You'll find local and franchised eateries, Starbucks, Wal-Mart Supercenter, grocery stores, major banks, hair and nail salons, pharmacies, restaurants, and a YMCA that offers a rock-wall climbing and fitness classes within a few minutes of the home.
