There are plenty of hiking trails and horseback riding available to explore nature.

Maricopa is best known as the stomping grounds of John Wayne. The town is rich with history right down to the favorite watering hole of the Duke. You are close enough to the Phoenix metro area to take in all the big city sights, but secluded enough to enjoy the serenity of the desert.

About John

We are Iowa folks that have fallen in love with the desert and all the amenities of the valley. We have our own home in Maricopa.

John purchased this house in 2011

Why John chose Maricopa

We bought this rental home because it is close to our winter home in Maricopa. We have golfed many of the courses near by and will continue to winter here in our semi-retirement years.

What makes this house unique

We love to golf, hike the trails, roam the flea markets and have our family come to visit during their winter months.

Canadians loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with two other couples for a week and really enjoyed our stay. Our downfall was the weather was not the greatest but still better than home. Having games room was great for downtime and of course the pool and night swims ! Loved it and would rent this house again. Great people to deal with!

Special Place with Special Owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion this March (2015). It was spectacular. The house is very well appointed and clean, beds were wonderful, kitchen was well stocked, plenty of eating spaces, and the backyard with the pool was exceptional. The game room also provided hours of entertainment. Our family enjoyed every minute of it and agreed it was perfect for our reunion.

Stayed at this home with my Family and absolutely loved it! The owners were very accommodating and were available for any questions we had. The description of the property is exact and the house was very clean and up to our standards.

The private pool is great for the kids and they took full advantage of it as well as upstairs there is a pool table and shuffle board that was great when the sun was too hot or for a game in the evening.

The location is ideal if you are wanting a small town feel. Everything you need is close by. Just a short drive to Mesa or Tempe if you are wanting the big city feel

We loved this place so much we are traveling back in October.
