About the property

Three bedroom two bath home with a gorgeous backyard pool. 2012 remodel!

For your fun and enjoyment is our vacation home in beautiful San Tan Valley, AZ. The house is located approximately 30 minutes from Mesa Gateway Airport, or one hour from Phoenix Sky Harbor. The home is located in beautiful Johnson Ranch which boasts an 18 hole golf course, three community pools, hot tubs, multiple tennis courts, volleyball courts, play grounds, soccer fields, softball fields and a kids fishing pond. Also within the golf club is a great restaurant and bar! Just outside the neighborhood are shopping centers and countless other outdoor activities and restaurants.

The house itself is 1500 square feet, three bedrooms and two full baths. It has a large living room which overlooks the fully landscaped and private backyard. There is a gorgeous brand new pool with three fountains and lounge chairs. The front sitting room is quiet and includes a comfortable sleeper sofa for extra guests.

The master bedroom has a king size pillow top bed and private bath, one guest room has a full size bed, and the second guest room has a full bottom bunk and a twin top bunk.

The granite kitchen is open and roomy and overlooks the living room and boasts stainless steel appliances with modern cabinetry.

The house is clean, comfortable and very private. This is our personal residence (when vacationing) and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. We take pride in offering a clean, quiet home with quick, honest communication between us and you.

Our backyard pool is not heated. The pool temperature fluctuates with the weather. In the summer, the pool is warm but refreshing. In the winter, its chilly! All three community pools are heated to 85 degrees year round and each has a hot tub. There is a community pool within a 10 minute walk or 1 minute drive from our home.

A one time cleaning fee of $100 is charged for each booking (please see below).

To guarantee a booking, please email me or call us immediately. We cannot guarantee a time without doing one of the two. We receive multiple emails a week and do not guarantee a reservation without speaking to you in person. Due to a recent changes with VRBO, if you would like to pay via credit card, please let us know and we will send an invoice via a secure payment site.

***Please Note*** If you intend to book our home and trash it, leave excessive amounts of garbage, smoke in or near the home, or not respect our home, we will not return your deposit. If our cleaner requires extra time because of the way you left our home, that will be deducted from your deposit. So far this has only happened once in several years.

We have made every effort to offer a nice, affordable vacation rental. But due to a very small percentage (1 so far) of guests, we must advise of the above.

99.9% of our guests have been awesome and we hope to keep it that way.

Deposit amounts may be reduced for past guests. Please email me if you've previously booked.

Deposits for reservations cancelled within 45 days of stay will not be returned.

Why Brad and Carmen Denson chose Greater Phoenix Area

Since we enjoy Arizona and all the things the area has to offer, including the warm winter time weather, we decided to buy this home. Since we are unable to use the home full time, we thought we should give everyone the opportunity to enjoy this amazing area!

What makes this house unique

The backyard pool is awesome! Johnson Ranch offers so many amenities and is a safe place to bring the entire family!

This being our second stay there and knowing the property, it made for a more relaxing and comfortable stay. We were there for 4 nights and wished it was longer. Great weekend in a house close to Family and ready to do it again this coming summer.

Great place to stay in Arizona!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and well maintained. It has everything you need, including bikes to ride to the neighborhood pool. We enjoyed the community pool and hot tub - it was too cold to use the pool at the house unfortunately. There are also great hiking trails nearby. Thank you so much, we had a great vacation!

Great stay and value

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights while visiting relatives in the Johnson Ranch area, San Tan Valley, Arizona. The house was clean, and I had no problems during my stay! The attached garage is great! The area is pretty quiet, and there's good privacy. The house is large and roomy. There's lots of little extras in the rental. The bedrooms are large and there's lots of room. The bathrooms are also good and the oversized tub was a bonus. All in all a great stay and excellent value for the cost. I look forward to returning in the future.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 3 weeks over the summer. We found the home to be exactly as advertised! The pool was perfect for the hot days, the home had plenty of space for us and our two young kids. Experienced a minor issue with the garage door, but the owner was responsive and had local contacts that had the problem handled quickly that day. Overall we had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon!

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and well kept. The kitchen had all necessary supplies, I was impressed that they even left charcoal to use their BBQ. We enjoyed the pool and it was so nice to relax and spend some quality time as a family. Owners were very easy to deal with and replied quickly with emails to answer any questions we had.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A Very nice place with a pool that takes up the majority of the backyard. We had a great family time visiting Arizona for our daughter's college graduation and this was the perfect home away from home. We felt safe and the neighborhood was very nice and quiet. The home has everything you need including a lot of space. The place was very well maintained and had all the basic necessities needed to enjoy ourselves. It was fairly centrally located so you can easily get to Phoenix or down to Tucson if you so choose. We did both. But the best thing was hanging out in and around the pool which is surrounded by a privacy fence and shrubbery and came complete with a barbeque. No need to even leave.
