About Carl or April Weber
We're Michiganders! But, Michigan is tough in the winter. After years of searching the US and foreign soil, we finally chose Sun City to be our winter paradise. Now, we're in our 6th year in Sun City and enjoy it more each year.
Carl or April Weber purchased this House in 2012
Why Carl or April Weber chose Sun City
We chose Sun City for many reasons. This property is in the best part of Sun City (in our humble opinion). Quiet, but close to everything. It's close to a major airport (Phoenix Sky Harbor) and major highways. It's close to good health care (minutes away). Sport, shopping, and cultural activities abound. The weather is great. We love the desert and the 'wild west'. And it's a great starting point for day or overnight trips to Grand Canyon, Vegas, California, etc. No place is perfect, but this is close.
What makes this House unique
Our home, The Hitching Post is just what you need as a simple base for activities. It's efficient, clean, comfy, and affordable and in beautiful Sun City. And you'll like the extra touches we've provided. We're experienced at this and enjoy providing a nice rental property to explore an area. We had a vacation rental in South Haven, MI for several years with excellent reviews We've decided to do the same thing here in Sun City because there's so much to see and the recreation centers are such a huge asset!

Wonderful place in Sun City
I am thankful I found this wonderful home for my April visit to Sun City. My name for it is the "just right" house - location, immaculate condition, perfectly furnished and outfitted, everything I wanted and needed. I am so glad I found this on vrbo instead of booking a hotel room - it was my personal oasis, coffee on the patio every morning, kitchen and laundry when I needed them and a comfortable bed every night. I was there to visit my dad who lives in Sun City full time and absolutely plan to stay there for future visits.
Thank you for staying at Hitching Post and your kind words. We'd love to have you back anytime. Take care. Carl and April
The hosts, Carl and April were very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. They supplied (with their own $ ) recreation passes for each of us (their were 4 of us ) to 7 very close and unique recreation centers. The centers were varied with activities of all kinds...swimming, bocce ball, mini-golf and even a lake to use a boat and fish. (boat usage was free ) At one of the rec centers, we golfed until around 8:30 p.m. and enjoyed the Sun City evening under a full moon! The plants at the golf course were beautiful. The house was VERY clean and well appointed, yet it had a very comfortable feel to it. We used the bbq one night and saved money cooking in with all appliances/utensils available to use. They really thought of everything. We were treated to cold bevs in the fridge upon arrival as well as candied orange peels which April made herself! The beds and bedding were heaven~ Clean and comfortable! The neighborhood is quiet, yet friendly and both neighbors shared fruit from their trees with us. Of course, if you are looking for more privacy, I believe it would not be hard to get that also. No one was intrusive, yet open if you wanted to meet new friends. The community is a retirement community and we saw very few people actually residing there at the time, yet there were occasional bike riders and walkers. The hosts made bikes available in case we wanted to use them. The laundry room was separate from the house and fully stocked with what we needed for clean clothes on our trip. It is located off the main drag, but available to shopping, and we were very impressed at the closeness to major roads connecting to other suburbs of the greater Phoenix area.The photos are a bit darker and do not show how much natural light there really is in the house. I mentioned this to April and she said she would rather have people pleasantly surprised than be disappointed. Well, we were definately pleasantly surprised! We loved our experience with these homeowners as they seemed to really care about the quality of our experience and there were so many extra thoughtful touches. Thank you Carl and April for the extra effort at making our family vacation a memorable and greatly pleasurable experience. We would definately love to stay at your place again! It was so nice and so very clean~
Thanks so much Lynn and Lori for your kind words. The 2 of you and your 2 daughters were dream renters! You are all such friendly people that we felt like we'd always known you from the first minute we met.
When people arrive at our home, our goal is to immediately make them feel comfortable and able to let their vacation begin. We're glad you all had a great time and we feel fortunate to have met you. Take care until we meet again. Carl & April
