Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom SCW Beauty with a Best View Lot

This 1850 sq. ft. golf-course retreat (2BR, 2½ baths) with private pool has everything you need for an exceptional stay in Sun City West. Enjoy one of the best views along the golf course!

The home's serene landscape seen from most every window matches the beauty of the well appointed Southwest interior. This open, contemporary home has 10’ ceilings and a feeling of spaciousness.

The light-filled living room is open to a dining area and office. Enjoy our 50-inch flat screen TV or a good book on the sofa. A fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter top makes meal preparation a delight. The kitchen adjoins a comfortable Arizona room where you can relax in lounge chairs and watch HDTV or gaze outside the bay window from the kitchen table. The master has a king bed with pillow-top mattress and the second bedroom has a queen-size bed. Off of each bedroom is a private bath. The master bath is appointed with glass sinks and waterfall faucets and a snail-designed shower with massage jets; the second bath has a traditional full-size tub. There is a washer/dryer and cleaning supplies in the laundry room. The double-car garage with remotes is available for your use.

Sunsets are particularly stunning. Enjoy lounging poolside in the privately fenced back yard. Watch the ducks on the pond and the golfers on the green (or in the sand trap). You even have a distant view of the White Tank Mountains. Grill burgers on the gas BBQ and enjoy a meal under the covered patio.

About Emily

My husband and I live in Durango, CO. We purchased this property as a retreat from the winter temps and snow. However, because skiing is still top on our list, we found we are not yet using our home as often as we anticipated. So we decided to share our home with you.

Emily purchased this house in 2010

Why Emily chose Greater Phoenix Area

We fell in love with this home's beauty and serenity.

The combination of access to large-city amenities while living in a well landscaped and secure community attracted us to Sun City West.

What makes this house unique

We furnished our lovely home for ourselves, so you will find everything you'll need for a comfortable, 'feel-at-home' stay. The kitchen appliances are new and include a 5-burner gas range and built-in micro range oven. The home also features a water softener. Additional space is available for your use in the third garage, but we owners are using some of that area for storage.

Pleasant memories ruined

  • 2 of 5

This is a very nice house. The photos and description are accurate. The kitchen is up to date and well-equipped. The view across the pond and golf course to the mountains beyond is beautiful. The owners were very nice to work with while we were there. We would have given it a 5-star rating, but our experience at the end of our stay prevented that, and destroyed memories of an otherwise wonderful two weeks. A dishonest housekeeper presented the owners with an outrageously false description of the condition in which we left the house, even stating that we were there an hour after the required checkout time and accusing us of returning after she had cleaned -- impossible because we had to turn in our rental car at the airport, negotiate holiday crowds in the terminal, and be at the gate at 12:05 p.m. to board our flight home. A letter to the owners refuting her claims and describing in detail he condition in which we left the house, and offering to provide a copy of our reservation in order to verify our flight time, was ignored. A check of the VRBO website suggests that the house was not rented that night, December 31 -- an excellent opportunity for a New Year's Eve party? Conditions the housekeeper described would fit that possibility. The owners chose to believe the housekeeper and deducted $70 from our "refundable" damage deposit in addition to our cleaning fee. We have rented a number of houses through VRBO, Homeaway, and other sources. We have never encountered a problem.

Lesson learned: If you feel compelled to rent this house (or any vacation property) deal with the owner on a "well-defined" basis which should include walk-throughs with the owner's rep. both upon arrival and departure. $70, not significant; pride and reputation to this 78 year-old midwestern couple, priceless.

Owner's Response: This is the first time in our 5-year rental history that any amount has been withheld from a tenant's damage/cleaning deposit. Our long-time housekeeper spent an extra 1 1/2 hours cleaning immediately after the tenants' departure.

Great for Relaxing and Bird Watching

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying all of July at this Sun City West house. The house was clean, well maintained, kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans, plates, utensils, etc, internet was fast, and the backyard with pool was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Also enjoyed watching the golfers and the trains passing by. Emily was very easy to work with and was always prompt with responses.

We are bird watchers and were pleasantly surprised at the number of birds viewable from the house. Saw Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron, Killdeer, Cactus Wren, Great-tailed Grackle, White-faced Ibis, Neotropic Cormorants, Double-crested Cormorant, Great Horned Owl, Gila Woodpecker, Gilded Flicker, Costa's Hummingbird, Anna's Hummingbird, White-winged Dove, Red-tailed Hawk, Gambel's Quail, Curve-billed Thrasher, Mallard, Eurasian Collared Dove, Mourning Dove, Inca Dove, Say's Phoebe, Mexican Duck, Turkey Vulture, European Starling, House Finch, Northern Mockingbird, Lesser Nighthawk, and more. House location is also close to many sites with good bird watching opportunities including Tres Rios Wetlands, Glendale Recharge Ponds, Desert Botanical Garden, and Thunderbird Park.

If I ever return to Sun City West I would again rent this house and would definitely recommend this home to a friend.

Love, loved, our stay in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely one of the nicest places we have ever stayed! The owners were just wonderful to work with, and their home is fabulous!!! It is just perfect inside and outside, and it is very, very well equipped with everything you would want or need! The location of the home was just great, easy to access and get to wherever you need to go at any time. It was a perfect area to walk in, and then the backyard was so relaxing to sit in and watch the gorgeous AZ sunsets! The home is so cozy and extremely comfortable! The TV's were excellent! We were so pleased to be able to stay here and we are really hoping that we can come back and enjoy this wonderful property again!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Home was exactly as described right down to the sunset! We enjoyed our stay immensely. Everything was comfortable, clean and nicely furnished and the kitchen was a wonderful place to prepare meals and enjoy the large recliners. Emmy was always very helpful, prompt and available for questions or concerns. We were pleased to use the rec centre passes during our stay for golf games at several of the Sun City West courses. We also found the suggested list of restaurants and tourist spots to be helpful - very much enjoyed the Desert Botanical Garden (Phoenix, Wickenberg (better than Old Town in Scottsdale), the Hassayampa River Preserve (a Nature Conservancy property) and the Arrowhead Mall. A big thrill was to experience a night blooming cactus in the backyard. We would definitely book this home again.
