About Brian Chavez Owner

My wife Ann and I currently live in Spokane Wa. I'm a fireman and my wife works at the local community college. While we love Spokane and it's 4 seasons we always wish summer didn't end so quickly. So to solve that problem we now travel to Arizona. When we are here my wife likes horseback riding and going to the Zoo and we both enjoy relaxing by the pool. The sun in the middle of winter is great therapy for us both.

Brian Chavez Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why Brian Chavez Owner chose Goodyear

We purchased this property for retirement and it has all a retired guy could hope for. It's close to Pheonix International Raceway, baseball spring training, desert dirt bike riding and lots of cactus. My wife loves it too. There are many hiking trails, bike paths, shopping & local dining options as well. When she first saw the backyard she jumped up and down and said yes this is it. Unfortunately we both have to work a few more years so in the meantime, please come enjoy our home Call with any questions. I love to talk about Arizona and would be happy to answer any questions for you.

What makes this house unique

Mountain views with native landscaping. Large open floor plan. A great pool that can be used year around with beautiful cacti in the back yard.

Casa Chavez is a great place to stay with all the amenities. For a Cleveland Indians fan you are only a 10 minute drive to Goodyear Ballpark. The back yard is beautiful with a pool and putting green. My only complaint is that we could not stay longer. Brian the owner was very easy to work with and keep in contact to make sure that our stay went well.

Perfect vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Chavez for a month and just loved it! This was our second year renting in the area and this home was lovely, especially the pool and yard! This home is well-looked after by the owner and his service team. The location in a quiet neighborhood was perfect for our holiday. We felt very much at home here and look forward to coming back next year! Th owner is great to work with and was always available if we had questions or concerns. We recommend this property . Thanks Brian!

family stay

  • 4 of 5

This place far exceeded our expectations. Our early Christmas celebration was held at another home so we didn't spend as much time at the Chavez property as we would have liked to. But everything we needed was provided, the place was clean, well decorated, all the appliances worked, and we enjoyed every minute we spent there.

Nice property in a great location. Couldn't get the pool fountain to work, but everything else worked fine. I'll use VSBO again in the future...smooth transactions and no hassle.
