Our Sun City home, which we fondly refer to as the 'Hitching Post' is located in Sun City, AZ and is a huge adult community of over 70,000 people. We are about 15 minutes from the Super Bowl Stadium!
We realize that a pet may be an important part of a family so a small dog may be approved as long as very clean and well-trained.
We offer passes to Sun City's 7 Recreation Centers at cost of $2/person/day. 2 of these centers area within 1 mile of our home and all 7 are less than 10 minutes away. Here's what you get: Nearly a dozen pools heated to over 85 degrees. All kinds of pools: indoor, outdoor, walking pools, lap pools, sunning pools, shady pools, and salt water or traditional pools. Huge hot tubs and spas at every center. Free minature golf at several centers. Complimentary state of the art fitness centers. Free WIFI Internet access AT THE 7 Recreation Centers and libraries as well as in our home.
Tennis, racket ball, bocce ball, lawn bowling, pickle ball -Free Billiards, Snooker, Ping Pong, Shuffleboard - If you like to do it, you'll likely find it here. Row a boat or fish at Lakeview center. Clubs and workshops of every kind. Free movies, music, and entertainment at times. Reduced prices at our 2 bowling alleys and the many golf courses you're surrounded by. Come try out beautiful Sun City and see why we love it here!
Our home has been recently updated and has a new and fresh feel. And, even though this is a newer rental property for us, we own a summer rental in South Haven, MI (see VRBO Listing #324764) and have excellent reviews over the past several years. So, we know what you want and need to be comfortable!
We make sure everything is in working order, neat and clean and ready to let you get into 'vacation mode'. Take advantage of our bicycles to cruise the quiet neighborhoods.
We want you to feel like you're in Arizona and we make local resource materials available and convenient to help you get around and take advantage of all there is to do here.
You immediately notice how well-kept the neighborhoods in this area are. Our home is in an excellent location - just a couple blocks off the 'main drag' (Bell Rd). We have all kinds of birds, and you'll notice small kangaroos hopping around the back yard (well, actually, they're large Arizona Jack Rabbits).
The Golf Course fees are some of the most reasonable around.
Other nearby activities include:
Peoria Sports Complex about 10 minutes away.
The Glendale spring training facility and stadium -- Arrowhead Shopping Towne Center, (250+ retailers), Costco, Target, WalMart, Macy's Nordstrom's Rack etc. There are two 18 screen theaters and nearly every restaurant you could possibly name (plus, a few of our secret favorite spots!)
Scottsdale: Known for its art community and cooking events, the renown Mayo Clinic, the world famous Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions, the annual Arabian Horse Show. and the PGA Tour's best attended winter tournament.
Sedona: known as the 'Red Rock Country' and Tucson are both only a 1 1/2 hour drive. The Grand Canyon is 3 1/2 hours north.
Boating, fishing and hiking activities are available at Lake Pleasant and the White Tank Mountains. If you're looking for a showcase of Museums, the Symphony, An Opera house, Fine Eating, the Desert Botanical Gardens, the Heard Native Museum and many other urban delights, Phoenix is 30 minutes away.
Additionally, there're many art events and galleries to see the spectacular work of local and nationally acclaimed artists. Last, but not least; Phoenix International Raceway, home of NASCAR races.
Minutes west is Surprise Stadium, spring training home of the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers. Many baseball teams make the Phoenix area their winter home, so if you're a fan, there are many games for you to attend.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Sun City, AZ, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home, The Hitching Post is just what you need as a simple base for activities. It's efficient, clean, comfy, and affordable. 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 have a vacation rental in South Haven, MI for several years now 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!
