Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is located in the Rancho El Dorado - “The Duke” Golf Course community. Only 30 minutes from PHX airport.

The backyard has been beautifully landscaped with 900 sq. ft. synthetic grass chipping and putting, green palm trees, 4 varieties of fruit trees, cactus and other plants to give you a resort like atmosphere around the pool (Solar and Hotspot Exchange heated - no guarantee of how warm it will be - mid February was 68 degrees and 80 degrees in early March). Many solar lights and flood lights surround the backyard, but not so much that you cannot see the magnificent beautiful stars. You are also able to putt and chip under the illumination of this lighting. There is a propane BBQ. There is much seating in the backyard, including a six place dining patio set; reclineable loungers with umbrella; and double glider loveseat.

There is plenty of extra space with Living room, Family room, and Den. Additional access to the backyard and pool can be done from the Family room. View of the pool can be seen throughout the house (Kitchen, Dining, Family, and Living room). Full Size Washer and Dryer.

The Master bedroom has a King size Sleigh bed and a full bath with dual sinks, separate shower/tub, and walk in closet. Private access to the pool can be made off of the master bathroom. It also has a 42' LCD HDTV with Blu-ray Player and Cable TV. The other bedrooms include a Queen bed and a Full size Double. A Twin bed is located in the Den; however, there is no privacy.

Watch entertainment on the 42' LCD HDTV and Blu-ray Player and Cable TV. Play video games on the XBOX game console with a selection of available games.

The desktop computer allows you to explore the Internet with Ethernet and Wi-Fi.


We have available 2 sets of Golf Clubs (stiff shaft ) for Free so you won't have to fly a set down.

One of Golf Digest top 100 Golf Courses (Southern Dunes) which was co-designed by Fred Couples and is managed by Troon Golf is less than 10 minutes away. There are over 50 golf courses within 45 minutes!

The Duke Golf Course: Staff have offered to drive us to the intersection of our street and the golf course following a round to allow your spouse to wander off with the vehicle.

About The Owner

We are Owners and Operators of a couple of businesses in Northern British Columbia. We have 4 children (3 boys and a girl). We are looking forward to the day that we will stay in Maricopa all the time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Maricopa

We absolutely love Arizona! The weather and the wonderful people! We are looking so forward to our own vacation time down there to get away from the Northern BC winters and for the boys in the family to play at some great golf courses! The girls love to just relax around the pool and shop. Maricopa is a perfect size community where you don't feel that you are jammed up in a sprawling metropolis. We love it there and look forward to retirement!

Very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home and yard. Stayed for a week Nov 16 to 23. Relaxing, clean, well kept and maintained. More pool heat would be nice. Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the home. We are exploring ways to keep the pool temperature warmer so as to not having to charge extra. We acknowledge that the solar heat and the heat exchanger is limited (especially during the late fall and winter). Maybe we will breakdown and buy a pool heater?

Resort like atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice home and the owner is super easy to work with. We used the home to house some out of town guests as there are no affordable hotels in Maricopa! It was nice having them so close and they were so comfortable with the property and enjoyed their evenings on the patio and the desert landscaped backyard.

Oasis in the blazing heat of AZ

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had more than enough room to relax, play and swim at the beautiful property. Nestled in a community of like homes, the inside was everything we could have asked for. Luxury linens, all necessary cooking utensils and small amenities like pool toys and puzzles made this a great combo between home away from home and hotel like luxury. Home owners provided EXCELLENT instructions easing our fears and the property was well maintained. Beware of the backyard cactus. I remembered to keep the kids away from it, but the husband...not so much.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. Clean. Even though we didn't cook during our short stay there, everything needed was in the kitchen. The weather just got nice enough on our last day there to enjoy the beautiful back yard. Owner was easy to contact and responded quickly. Only drawback we had was not having a remote for the garage or knowing the code to open from outside. But we just went into the house and opened it from inside. Would request this home again if ever in the area.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed the home. And we certainly look forward to having you come back again. We used to have a remote but a guest inadvertently forgot to take it out of their car and "poof" - we no longer had a remote; and we also had confusion with the keypad being re-programmed when being used.
