Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Estrella Mountain Ranch, Goodyear, AZ, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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'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.
