Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

This property, located on a quiet street in Corte Bella, offers the best vacation rental value possible. Surrounded by 720 acres of manicured walking paths, streets, public places and golf course you'll truly enjoy every moment spent there.

As renters of this property you'll enjoy two memberships in the Corte Bella Country Club (not to be confused with the Corte Bella Golf Course which is a separate entity), and includes use of the pool, hot tub, fitiness area, bocce ball area and the tennis and pickle ball courts as well as the locker rooms. You'll also have access to the Day Spa where for a small fee you can have a relaxing massage or join in a yoga or exercise class. The HOA office will issue you membership cards so you can gain access to these areas. Golf is not included with this rental but tee times are available at the Corte Bella Golf Course or any of the several other courses in the area for a fee.

Our home is 3 bedrooms plus a den with three full baths. The main house is approximately 1904 square feet and with the Casita, which is about 250 square feet, you have plenty of room for yourself and several guests.

You enter the property through a private courtyard with comfortable seating around a beautiful fountain. Relax in the courtyard during those famous warm Arizona evenings while watching some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see.

The Casita that features two extra long twin beds, has its own full bath and walk in closet. It's private entrance is off the courtyard. For those guests that prefer a king size bed the twins can be pushed together to make a king size bed with the supplied bedding.

As you enter the home through it's unique circular entryway you'll see the dining/family room to your right and the Den, Guest Bedroom and full bath to your left. The Guest Bedroom is furnished with a Queen Size Bed, flat screen TV and has a private entrance into the Jack and Jill bathroom.

The Den has comfortable seating for two to relax and enjoy quite moments away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and family room. It also has an antique walnut desk with desk top computer for surfing the internet or checking out all the wonderful restaurants, golf courses and various attractions in the area as well as a 54' plasma TV. A printer is also provided. Wireless internet is proved throughout the house.

The dining room, with views to the courtyard and fountain, has room for 6 to enjoy the gourmet meals you prepare in the fully equipped kitchen.

In the kitchen you'll find top quality appliances with everything you should need. The refrigerator features a built in ice maker and plenty of room for storage.

The Family Room features a beautiful leather couch, large travertine coffee table and two barrel swivel chairs. A new LG Smart TV is also provided so you can watch your favorite TV program or connect to your subscription of Netflix, Hulu or other internet movie service or just surf the net. Under the TV is a new electric fireplace that creates the prefect ambiance for a quiet evening at home. It comes equipped with a remote control to adjust the size of the flame and supplemental heat. The heat can be placed on high, medium, low or off when you just want the glow of the fireplace without any extra heat.

The large master suite features a new king size bed, two night stands, a full dresser, 60' plasma TV and a bench for sitting and relaxing. The huge master bath features a large soaking tub, separate shower and twin vanities. A separate toilet room is also included. Off the master bath you'll find a large walk-in closet that has plenty of room for everything you bring.

As a side note: all the mattresses and bedding for the entire property are new as of August 2013.

The back patio provides another retreat from the pressures of that upcoming golf, tennis or pickle ball match. It features a new natural gas 5 burner grill with a separate searing burner to get those steaks just right. Also on the back patio is a fire pit with seating for four to enjoy the ambiance of a fire while having dinner outside in the beautiful Arizona weather.

About Doug Carney

Welcome to our Corte Bella home. My name is Doug and I'm a retire business person with over 40 years experience in the construction business. Most recently I owned a company that manufactured cabinets and fine architectural woodwork for restaurants, hotels, hospitals, schools and other commercial projects. I'm most proud of my service to the Architectural Woodwork Institute that provides standards and education to the woodworking industry throughout the world. In 2010 I had the privilege of being its 55th president.

I also want to welcome you to our Corte Bella home. My name is Jo and I am an Account Executive for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Dakota. It's a job I've truly loved over the years but as the Affordable Care Act is beginning to take shape I'm finding new challenges every day.

Together we purchased this home as a retirement home. When Jo retires in about 5 years we'll use it during the winter months. In the mean time we'd like to rent it during the high season in Arizona and use it for personal use during the off season.

Doug Carney purchased this house in 2013

Why Doug Carney chose Sun City West

We looked for a retirement home for about 2 years in the Phoenix area. We looked in Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler, San Tan, Rio Verde, Tonto Verde and other locations in the greater Phoenix area. When we first drove into Corte Bella it was love at first sight. This gated community with its manicured walks, streets and golf course sold us within minutes. Nowhere else did we find the security and exclusivity Corte Bella offers. Although we visited other areas many times over it only took one visit to Corte Bella before we made the offer to buy this house.

What makes this house unique

Our first visit to this home took our breath away. The massive front arched entry door into the private courtyard was amazing. The fountain delightful and surprising. The Casita will be perfect for guests or our children to have their own 'private' area. The master suite will be our perfect 'private' retreat when we just need to get away from it all. When we found our 'Corte Bella Home' we truly found what we'd been looking for.

A Great Stay in Corte Bella

  • 5 of 5

We rented this great place in Corte Bella for 2 ½ months at the beginning of 2015. The owners were great to deal with and they even had goodies waiting for us (everything we needed for breakfast our first full day there as well as some nice bottles of wine). Owners also kept in touch with us during our stay just to ensure that we were happy with everything.

As you can see in the photos on the VRBO Web site, the place is well furnished with quality furniture both inside and outside. The kitchen had everything you might need during your stay. Same situation for the linens, as the house had everything you needed and all linens were high quality. Perfect home away from home and cold Canadian weather.

The weather was great the full time we were there, so we really enjoyed the front courtyard and back patio which are both well furnished.

The facilities in Corte Bella (pool, gym, pickle ball and tennis courts) are all first class. We also had some great meals at the restaurant in Corte Bella. The area surrounding Corte Bella has lots of shopping, restaurants and great hiking trails.
