About Scott

My wife & I grew up in the Pacific NW and love the mountains & the ocean. Ever since making a trip to the Southwest a few years back, we fell in love with the climate and now we love the desert too! We look-forward to our getaway home to relax, unwind, play a few rounds of golf & enjoy the sunshine.

Scott purchased this house in 2011

Why Scott chose San Tan Valley

We like Johnson Ranch because it is surrounded by premier golf courses, it is a quiet & private neighborhood, and it is a short drive to local shopping centers. Also, it is a short 15 min. drive to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport with discounted Allegiant flights.

What makes this house unique

Our home sits on a quiet dead end street. There are numerous paths around the community for walking. We provide bicycles and helmets for more exploring. The clubhouse, grocery store and restaurants are all within riding distance.

Just what I expected!

We enjoyed our stay! The home was very nice and just what I expected from the pictures and description. Great neighborhood for walking or jogging. Easy to get to once you have your sense of direction. Good inside spaces with everything we needed.

Great Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was short but we enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very comfortable and well furnished. We cooked out every evening on the back patio, which was really nice and very relaxing.The pool was a hit, lots of fun swimming and just sitting around it. We loved staying in this house, and hope to stay there again!! The San Tan Valley area is really nice, the weather was great. And Scott was very easy to work with.

Great Winter Away!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 4 months in San Tan Valley! This house is very comfortable with lots of room and amenities - plenty of TV channels, Netflix, a great pool, comfortable beds, etc. Scott was extremely helpful and accommodating , even sending out a Christmas tree since we were here over Christmas!

The backyard is wonderful for relaxing in the sun or shade, watching the golfers (great course to play too!) or enjoying the pool. Our visiting grandkids had hours of fun in the pool as did we.

We took many trips to nearby attractions: San Tan Regional Park, Tonto National Forest/Globe, the Cliff Dwellings at Roosevelt, the Dolly Steamboat ride, drove the Apache Trail and went to several spring training baseball games to name a few. Also had some great food and fun at places like San Tan Flats, the Olive Mill, The Gym and Rosati's in San Tan Valley and the Historic Mining Camp Restaurant by Apache Junction.

We highly recommend this home for a few days, weeks or months! The weather is great, the neighborhood friendly and Scott is a great owner to work with!! Thanks Scott for a wonderful winter. If we are back in the area this is a place we would love to come back to!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned to B.C. after staying in this home for almost ten weeks. And it was a wonderful ten weeks!

When we arrived, there was a very generous welcome gift from Scott and Jennifer waiting for us. We were immediately impressed with the layout of the bedrooms- the master suite (which has a sliding glass door to the pool area) is on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms are on the opposite side and end. Very private when you have guests. The kitchen is well stocked, all the beds are very comfortable and the pictures on the VRBO site are accurate. The owners have equipped the TV with many speciality and high definition channels as well as Netflix and music channels.

We spent many hours outside- the home backs onto the eighth hole of the Johnson Ranch Golf Club with a western exposure so we enjoyed warm days by and in the pool as well as spectacular sunsets. We did not start heating the pool until early March and found it very affordable.

The owners are very accomodating and will do their best to make your stay in the home special. Scott replies promptly to emails and phone calls which was also appreciated. For ten weeks, this was a home away from home and we were sorry to leave. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who wants to enjoy the Valley of the Sun and all of its many activities. Unfortunately, we are unable to return in 2015 but hope to be back someday.

Thanks to Scott and Jennifer for letting us enjoy their beautiful home- it was perfect!
