About Pat and Kara Ryan

We are from Montana and we love to be warm when its cold and we both love to golf. So when the weather turns cold and the snow starts to fly, we head south for some fun in the sun.

Pat and Kara Ryan purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Pat and Kara Ryan chose Gold Canyon

We searched high and low in the Phoenix area for a property and nothing seemed to get our attention until by chance found the Gold Canyon area. This property is located on the Sidewinder Golf Course and is a short distance away from several others. It offers fantastic views of Dinosaur Mountain and the Superstition Mountains. It is very quiet and peaceful. The wildlife is abundant. You can sit on the patio and watch the golfers by day or stars by night.

What makes this townhome unique

This property is secluded but yet close to dining and shopping. It has awesome views. Whether you love to golf, just want to get away or are looking for a family vacation this property is for you!

This place is all that and more! Amazing place with huge high ceilings...approx 14 foot, very clean and updated...Fabulous place. Great communication with Pat the owner...quick response to email. The pool and hot tub area is quiet and private. Can't say enough...about 35 minutes from Mesa...great for Spring Training! Everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms. Nice patio area overlooking the golf course. Greeted in the mornings by hummingbirds on the patio. Great views of Superstition Mountain. Grocery store and Walgreens nearby! Thank you!!

Wonderful stay in the desert!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this townhouse for 2 weeks in March/April and it was amazing! This townhouse has all of the necessities for an "at home" feel and then some! We stay at this townhouse several times a year and each time it does not disappoint! I strongly recommend this townhouse for your stay while in the Gold Canyon area!

Beautiful place in a great area.

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed their town home. The place was spotless and everything you needed was here. There is a nice grocery store within 15 minutes and golf courses everywhere. Several restaurants are in the area , but our most enjoyable evening were on the patio grilling steaks for friends. This is a spacious place with 3 bedrooms and a very comfortable kitchen, Threre is a learning curve with the keys and gate fob and all that but it wasn't a problem at all once I figured out the routine. Pat was always just an Email away. We had morning walks around the area and everyone was pleasant and open. I drove daily to Mesa to see my grandkids and the 30 minute drive wasn't a problem at all.

All in all a very pleasant experience for our first VRBO .

Great quality home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beatutiful home in a peaceful location of Gold Canyon

The home is tastefully decorated, clean and has all the essentials you'd ever need plus some.

The owners were very accomodating and it's obvious that they care about thier home and that your stay is comfortable.

Highly recommended and I plan to be back when next visiting AZ.

Beautiful town home and location!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend's brother and sister-in-law were kind enough to let my friend and I stay at their town home for a week - thank you so much!! The town home is beautiful and has everything you need; we sat on the patio every morning and watched the golfers and the roadrunners!! We were there to relax so we spent each day at the pool and then shopping - there are lots of malls that aren't too far of a drive from Gold Canyon. It was just what I needed and I can't thank them enough for letting us stay there!!
