About Ron or Debi Carrington

Ron and I are business owners near Vancouver BC. We grew up in North Vancouver BC and have been married for 38 years. We have 5 of the most wonderful children on the planet, including a son in law and daughter in law. We have 2 beautiful granddaughters and a new grandson who take our breath away every time we see them.

Ron or Debi Carrington purchased this house in 2010

Why Ron or Debi Carrington chose Greater Phoenix Area

We knew we loved this place the second we walked through the front door. We have 1 full time rental properties in the area and were thrilled when our realtor found us a home we could use for ourselves. It's quaint and cozy and calms us from our crazy work schedule. The blue skies and warm weather of Arizona are a welcomed break from the windy, wet, west coast of BC. We thought we would be able to spend more time here, but work keeps getting in the way plus we can't bear to be away from our family for very long. Theses are the reasons we are now offering our home as a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

We love our little home in the middle of the desert. It has a hint of Spanish Mission architecture, Spanish White washed walls, pottery and unique bits of art. This a casual and welcoming place to be. We love the pool, the sound of the birds, the rustling palms, and the native plants that surround the yard. The cactus, walls of flowering Bougainvillea make Casa Contenta our home away from home. We're situated just 2 blocks from the South Lake where you can take an evening stroll and soak up the magic of the Phoenix sunsets...walk to the shopping mall to pick up your groceries....go for a bike ride or simply enjoy the warmth of the Arizona sun and people. The Golf Club of Estrella is also within walking distance and has fantastic Friday and Saturday night dinners on the club patio. You can dine under the stars, around one of the gas fire pits...it's simply perfect. Phoenix Raceway and Spring Training are only minutes away, while Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Mexico are great day trips or overnighters.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, and included everything we could have wanted for our two week stay. We loved the ambiance and made good use of the beautiful pool and back yard area. Lots to see and do in Goodyear and beyond. Ron and Debi were great to deal with. Would definitely come back to this house!

Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for a 3 generation family visit to AZ. Everything was perfect- from the pool water warm enough for everyone to enjoy, to the decor, and closeness to the lake. It was also great having a stroller and pack 'n play available so we didn't have to pack those in or car.

Estrella Mountain Ranch is a laid back resort community featuring a variety of amenities centered by two man made lakes. Amenities include open spaces, parks, lakes where you can rent non power boats and paddle boards at the Marina. Enjoy the Starpointe Residents club gym, library, restaurant, and beautiful community pool overlooking the lake. Play at the Jack Nicklaus Design golf course, hike in the desert trails and bike along the many bike trails in the area for residents only. Shopping is conveniently located at Safeway only minutes away along with independent cafes and restaurants, Walgreens and everything you needed for your vacation. Only 15 minutes away you can see a Spring training game, NASCAR Race or better yet actually drive a NASCAR at the Phoenix Raceway. Take a 2 hour drive to Sedona, the artist community Jerome or head east to the Apache Trail, the road is not for the faint of heart but is a spectacular day trip where you can rent boats and take in the beauty of this mini Grand Canyon. For the real thing take a trip to the Grand Canyon only 4 hours away, this is a must see. You can also take a trip to the white sand beaches of Puerto Penasco Mexico, an easy 3-4 hour drive. There is so much to see and do in the area...just sit back and relax, read a few travel books and plan a great vacation.
