It was a perfect family home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the home. It was equipped with everything we needed. The owners were delightful and friendly. They don't rent the home often, so everything was in tip-top shape. The landscaping was just completed and we love the water feature and gas fireplace. There is binder that has all information about the area. The pools were wonderful and within a few minutes walk. I would definitely rent this place again!

Great house, location is close to grocery store, restaurants, shops, & golfing!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the house. Lots of pillows, blankets, & even a couple lay flat mattress pads we used when one brother didn't want to sleep with the other! Kitchen was well stocked with everything. Even staples in the refrigerator. Only negatives were the propane tank for the grill was empty & the downstairs bathroom handle sticks (so the water runs continually unless you make sure & jiggle the handle into it stops). Boys were a little disappointed they couldn't get their sports stations (a little spoiled), but the Final Four was on so they made do. All in all, great vacation!

Maricopa Visit

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this home while visiting our family in Maricopa. The house was beautifully furnished and large. We were traveling with our 2 adult children and were very thankful to all have our own space. We arrived in the late evening and were pleasantly surprised to have lights on making the entrance to the home very inviting. The kitchen was fully stocked with all dishware and appliances you could possibly imagine. The owners were very helpful. I had emailed them a few times with some minor questions and always got a quick response. The grounds in the subdivision were beautiful. We were able to use the pools often.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Biss Cottage and each time it simply gets better. A comfortable house (including a porch swing-loveseat where you can sit in the evening and read and admire the southwestern sunset) and generous owners: what could be better?

About Shelley Biss

We are adventurous Alaskans that love to come to Maricopa occasionally to thaw out!

Shelley Biss purchased this house in 2011

Why Shelley Biss chose Maricopa

We love the Phoenix Area with all it has to offer. We occasionally work in the area and loved the idea of having a home of our own here.

What makes this house unique

The Villages at Rancho El Dorado is a resort in itself. This community has the best amenities of any in Maricopa, with keyed access to two pools (one heated lap pool), fitness gym, splash park, tennis and basket ball courts, and offers many classes, lessons, and community events that we enjoy. It is fun to get to know fellow vacationers this way.
