Relax in style in front of the 46 inch LCD HDTV watching your favorite blu-ray movies while seated on the leather sofa, love seat, or lounger. Maybe you prefer to enjoy some TV in bed in the master bedroom with your 32 inch LCD HDTV screen!

Take a load off with a cold beverage and freshly made ice from the ice dispenser on the patio or observe the mountains and hot air balloons from the master bedroom patio.

This house is only 6 years old and is in immaculate condition, very clean, quiet and close to all amenities.

Bask in the Arizona sun or set your children free and be entertained as they burn off a little energy by a choice of 2 huge pools, one only a minute walk from the house, and the other in the community recreation center which also includes tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, and a children's spray park.

All linens, main toiletries, and beach towels are provided at your convenience.

Enjoy a drive to the local favorite Lake Pleasant for some swimming, fishing, boating, hiking or whatever else you desire.

Great for Location for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice! The development has a very nice large pool. There were several nights that we had the pool to ourselves. The development is very quiet and it is in a very upscale area. Jason the owner was very friendly and easy to work with. The area has lots of shopping and Lake Pleasant is 15-20 minutes away. Easy access to freeways. I would highly recommend this rental.

Sunshine, sunshine, and more sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very comfortable and nicely decorated, and we felt quite at home as soon as we arrived. I can't say how much we enjoyed all the activities in the area. There was so much to choose from: hiking, biking, walking, shopping, eating out, baseball, rodeo, theater or just soaking up the sunshine. We certainly hope to come back next year!

A wonderful visit to Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully furnished and well-kept home is situated in a quiet, gated community with a 3-minute walk to a gorgeous large pool and jacuzzi. Jason, the owner, pays exceptional attention to detail to ensure your comfort - even to the point of developing a very useful renters' manual. A short drive to major shopping facilities and freeways, it is easily accessible to a wide variety of recreational facilities including Lake Pleasant State Park. It is also a little over a 1/2 hour drive to downtown Phoenix and not too much longer to Sedona and Jerome. We also enjoyed a fairly short trip to the casino in Scottsdale. Highly recommended - we are looking forward eagerly to our next visit to Phoenix - and to this home!

Great place to stay while visiting Phoenix!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Phoenix. The condo is relaxing, and has all the amenities you may need. The pool is gorgeous! The condo is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Phoenix, but close enough to enjoy all that Phoenix has to offer. Baseball, golfing, swimming, boating - We will definitely be back!

Thank you.

Quiet and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property for relaxing and enjoying the PHX sunshine. Very comfortable housing for six people. Nice patio and the community is very quiet. Nice areas to walk in and while we could not enjoy the pools much, these amenities are good. Close to great shopping.....everyday items as well as more upscale mall type. You are well north of PHX, but close to the I-17, 101 Loop and the new section of the 303 Loop, which may not show on your gps, but this road will take you southwestern points (Surprise) quite efficiently. If you are looking for comfort in a well maintained and appointed home in a quiet gated community and this part of the greater PHX area is good for you, we recommend.

Great home for our family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this Sonoran Foothills home. It was perfect for our family - wonderful to have the space to unwind. Convenient to freeways and shopping too. We would definitely return!
