About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our luxury home is in a beautiful gated adult community that has all the resort amenities that you could want! Pools, spa, fitness studio, tennis courts and a 5-star Trilogy at Vistancia golf course. There is lots of organized activities and clubs that one can enjoy....or just read a book on the covered patio and enjoy the quiet desert setting. Two bicycles provide you with an opportunity to get some exercise as you explore your surroundings.

The 1815 square-foot floor plan offers privacy between two large bedrooms which have their own bathrooms. In addition to the king and queen beds, there is a comfortable sofa bed in the den which can be made private with blinds and shutters. There are also two inflatable beds for additional flexibility.

The great room has a large-screen HDTV and WiFi Blu-ray. There is a large DVD library and Roku Streaming TV as well. The kitchen is a chef's dream with a gas range and upscale appliances. A large eating bar connects the kitchen with the living area.

On the patio you can relax on a chaise lounge or sit in the shade or sun as you prefer. The south-facing covered patio affords you privacy and quiet solitude. A Weber gas grill awaits your culinary offerings. There is also another separate courtyard that faces west if you want to bask in the afternoon sun.

The Kiva Club is the centerpiece to the community and is yours to enjoy. There is a wide variety of interest groups and clubs if you want. The fitness studio has a varied program, and the hi-tech exercise area is also available for your use. There is a large outdoor pool (with sun shades), hot tub and an indoor lap pool. Solaz Cafe offers good food and a nice seating area. A billiards room can be used by guests. An outdoor fire pit provides a great way to enjoy the starlit sky.

One renter must be 55+, but Trilogy at Vistancia has much to offer to all ages. Our home is unspoilt by smokers, and we want to keep it that way. Small pets are OK with separate deposit. Shopping and professional sporting venues are a short drive away. You will not be disappointed!

About Don Thain

We live in Victoria, BC and love to sail and travel. I am a retired Air Force pilot and my wife has retired from her job as a high school Vice-Principal. Our two sons have fledged so we are almost carefree. We love tennis, skiing, golf, hiking and biking. Of course the good life includes some fine wine and exquisite food too.

Don Thain purchased this house in 2011

Why Don Thain chose Vistancia

While we love being on the water....we also love the desert too! Especially in the winter! Phoenix has a great climate and many, many diversions so we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

If you have any interest in playing golf then the Trilogy course will enthrall you. Each hole is a different experience and challenge abounds for all levels. Fortunately, the forward tees present a far easier version so all handicappers can play. The common facilities at this resort are SUPERB in variety and quality. The staff are friendly, and the place is absolutely vibrant with activity. You would have to work really hard not to have fun here.

Living the Good Life

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home in Trilogy during January and February 2017. The SunSpot home exceeded expectations. Don and Joan have thought of everything when furnishing and organizing their home. It was super clean and well maintained. Trilogy is a beautiful community with many amenities. We enjoyed the exercise equipment, classes, club activities and golf.

My wife and I were included in neighborhood gatherings and met other couples who had stayed in Don and Joan’s home and then purchased their own homes in Trilogy. I highly recommend renting Don and Joan’s SunSpot. Don was very responsive and helpful in answering any and all our questions. We have rented other homes in Florida and Arizona. The SunSpot home, Trilogy and our entire rental experience with Don rates as being our BEST. We would love to return for another stay!

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Don and Joan for wonderful stay in your well kept comfortable home! Sunspot is a very clean, well organized and equipped home. It has everything you need to live comfortably and enjoy entertaining. It's a very cozy home with an open floor plan. The owners are wonderful people, and very accessible if you have questions. There is a binder that explains everything about the home and area.

The neighbors are fun and welcoming. Trilogy is a very lovely community with activities and classes for every interest. The new gym equipment and exercise classes were fantastic. It's a great place to enjoy walking, and we felt very safe even in the evening.

We look forward to another stay!

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you Don and Joan for a great stay in your home. We stayed for 3 months and in the end purchased a property in the Trilogy community. Staying at Sunspot was effortless and the neighbors are outstanding. From the beginning, we felt like part of the community.

Sunspot is is everything you'd expect in a 1st class rental. Everything you need for a great vacation home is included. There is even a binder with instructions for use of the appliances and entertainment system. Don is only an email away if you have any questions.

Obviously we thought the community was outstanding. Anyone staying at Sunspot will have their high expectations fulfilled.

Sunspot exceeds

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last three months at Sunspot and we were not disappointed. Don and Joan have provided everything you need and are quick to respond to any questions that you may have. A thorough information binder is included, which facilitates the use of everything from the Saeco coffee maker, to the smart TV, to turning on the air conditioner and everything in between. Access to the Kiva Club (short drive or a 20 minute walk) is a real bonus. There are an unlimited amount of activities and facilities that are available to use and for the golfers in the group, Trilogy is a treat to play. The new Loop 303 provides easy access and all the shopping you require is only minutes away. We highly recommend staying at Sunspot.

John & Robyn

  • 5 of 5

Robyn and I spent 3 months enjoying Sunspot. Upon our arrival we felt at home. Don and Joan have provided everything you need - great furnishings, all the kitchen gadgets (especially the popcorn popper!), Squeezebox Wi-Fi radio, Netflix, tennis rackets and balls, Saeco espresso and coffee maker, bicycles, maps and tour guides to plan your time in this desert paradise. Don has prepared an excellent information notebook that describes all the appliances and multimedia devices; the pre and post reservation communications were excellent.

Trilogy at Vistancia is a premier 55+ resort-like community with top notch amenities. V's Taproom and Café Solaz are both very good and priced right, the golf course is 5 star rated and while residing at Sunspot you are given resident rates. In fact, we fell in love with Trilogy and ended up buying our own "Sunspot". If we hadn't purchased in Trilogy we would definitely return to Sunspot!
