About the property

3 Bedroom Plus Sofa Bed, 2 Bathroom In Gated Community

Our home is a charming single level, open floor plan home in a very quiet and private gated community.

This home sleeps 6 comfortably and can sleep 8 if you need. We have 3 bedrooms with queen beds, 2 baths and 1 office with a queen sized hide-a-bed. The guestrooms have a beautiful view of the Superstition Mountains and the Master bedroom has a walk-in shower & walk-in closet plus a beautiful bedroom suite with lots of storage. This room also overlooks the pool and spa in our very private backyard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, fridge with ice maker, coffee maker, blender, place settings for 8, including acrylic glasses for your afternoon “happy hour” on the deck overlooking the pool. We also have full sized washer & dryer for your use.

There is no shortage of golf courses in close proximity. These are a few close golf courses; Sidewinder, Gold Canyon Golf Resort, Dinosaur Mountain and Mountain Brook.

Our home is located very close to the Superstition Mountains which has incredible hiking and includes a variety of natural features in addition to the mountain that is its namesake. Weaver's Needle, a prominent landmark and rock climbing destination set behind and to the east of Superstition Mountain, is a tall erosional remnant that plays a significant role in the legend of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. Peralta Canyon, on the northeast side of Superstition Mountain, contains a popular trail that leads up to Freemont Saddle, which provides a very picturesque view of Weaver's Needle. Miner's Needle is another prominent formation in the wilderness and a popular hiking destination. Plus just minutes from this our home is Canyon Lake, surrounded by mountains and breathtaking sunsets. Take a ride on Dolly the Steamboat or rent a boat or jet skis.

We are located approximately 45 minutes east on US-60 from downtown Phoenix/Sky Harbor Airport or an easy 20 minutes from Williams Gateway Airport.

You’ll be amazed at how removed yet so close you are to big city amenities. Just 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix. Easy freeway access to Chandler, Gilbert and Scottsdale. Approximately 2.5 hours to Sedona, a must-see during your stay and about 4.5 hours to the Grand Canyon.

About The Owner

My husband and I own this property. I am a Canadian HR professional that absolutely loves Arizona and my husband is a Plumber by trade.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Gold Canyon

We immediately fell in love with this home and the location. The open floor plan is great and I love that the master bedroom is very private from the 2 guest rooms.

The location is perfect, lots of outdoor activities, amazing golf, grocery shopping and restaurants 5 min away and yet such a quiet area.

We also have a raised toilet in the main bathroom, along with an assistance bar for getting in and out of the bath tub or you have the option of a walk-in shower in the ensuite.

This is a very quiet neighbourhood and we hope that you love it as much as we do!

2nd visit to this home and will be back

  • 4 of 5

We were excited to have booked our second stay at this great home away from home in Gold Canyon, AZ. The first stay being in February 2015. Since our last stay, a couple of appliance updates have been made to the kitchen - namely the dishwasher and microwave. New bicycles were available in the garage for our use. The neighbourhood didn't disappoint, it's gated, safe, friendly, and quiet. We were a bit disappointed in the weather conditions (cool/rainy) during our February stay this year, but hey - the owners can't provide everything. ;-)

Other than the unusually cool and sketchy weather (and let's be honest there are plenty of things to do other than lay by the pool or golf), this was once again an awesome vacation home base. Thanks to Shirley and Jerry for being such great hosts, and for being so helpful when we had questions about anything really. Deb & Ken

Returning Renters

We rented this house for the second time. Great location. Amazing spot for golfing. Loved morning coffee in the back yard & loved hearing the coyotes at night while enjoying a cocktail on the deck. Shirley is efficient and organized. We will definitely rent this home again. Jeff Ida Howard Wanda

Owner's Response: Gold Canyon is a very special place! Lots of golfing, hiking and entertainment close by and yet quiet with a touch of wilderness. We also love watching our hummingbirds at dusk, they put on quite a show every evening.

Awesome week in the desert sun!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this house for six days. The Gold Canyon area is absolutely beautiful, a wonderful place to walk and just enjoy nature. The house was clean and comfortable, with many hours spent on the patio by the pool! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful quiet area with all the luxuries at a reasonable price. And grapefruits off the tree for breakfast as a perk! 😁

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Property is in a great location, friendly neighborhood, very well equipped from kitchen supplies to beach towels, we were there in January so we didn't heat the pool but used the spa,

Would definitely recommend this property. The only issue we had, TV is on digital antenna which only got 4 major channels & old re-runs, not a problem for a short stay but we were there for a month
