About Ryan and Angel Johnson

We met in college at NDSU in Fargo, ND and moved to Denver, CO shortly after graduation in 2001. Ryan works as an IT Principal Analyst and Angel is a Registered Dietitian/Certified Diabetes Educator. Ryan grew up in West Fargo, ND and Angel grew up in SW Minnesota. We have two girls who love to swim and spend time outdoors. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to purchase an Arizona home and are excited to share it with you!

Ryan and Angel Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan and Angel Johnson chose Surprise

We chose to purchase a vacation home in Arizona to be able to enjoy the wonderful weather and spend time together as a family. Being natives of ND/MN we are so happy to spend time in the warm sun and enjoy the pool and tropical backyard.

Ryan's parents also have vacation homes in Arizona which makes this home a nice way for the girls to spend time with their grandparents as well.

What makes this house unique

There are numerous reasons why we chose this Arizona home over others. We fell in love with the backyard oasis with heated pool, flowering trees and tropical palm trees backing up to a beautiful park and green space. Outdoor cooking/grilling is one of our favorite things to do and we were excited to see that there was an outdoor kitchen and built-in grill area. We are on a corner lot with neighbors only on one side so it is quiet yet close to grocery stores, shopping and spring training facilities. The layout of the home was another big draw. We love the floor plan with the large master bedroom and huge walk-in closet and spacious 2nd bathroom and 2 other bedrooms. This is a true vacation home!

Having rented dozens of condos and houses in the past this was clearly the nicest place we have have ever stayed. The listing seemed too good to be true but everything described was accurate. No surprises here. The place was spotless from from every dish, glass or piece of silverware to the bathrooms. Furnishing all top quality - Beds, linens, towels furniture, pots and pans, etc. Like staying at your own private resort. Private pool and patio with gas grill, TV and even propane heaters for the cool evenings. If staying in the late fall or winter definitely worth the extra $25 per night for the heated pool. Convenient to everything - shopping, golf, parks. Owners a pleasure to deal with. Great communication and response to any questions. Will definitely be our first choice on future visits to the area.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Nov 2016, Beautiful home, wonderfully outfitted and super clean. Our stay at the Desert Oasis was awesome for our first trip to Arizona, perfect vacation, friends and weather, couldn't have asked for more. Loved the outdoor sitting and eating area. Home has everything to would ever want. Owners are so great to deal with and provide more than I would have expected. Home is easy to get to and is a great home base for a vacation. Lots of amenities nearby and lots more within a reasonable drive.

Our trip was based around the Fall Nascar Race and getting to and from the track was a really easy.

Definitely recommend the Desert Oasis.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travelled to Surprise for a National mixed tennis event. Our team stayed at a hotel but we decided me wanted to relax and enjoy a desert oasis which is exactly what this house was. We had the pool heated and enjoyed it each day of our trip!

To start, Ryan was extremely responsive to any questions I had. I greatly appreciated that since this was my first time booking a vrbo myself. A+++ for communications!

The outdoor grill, seating area and pool made leaving very difficult!

We hope to make it back again in future years and will absolutely look to book this same property!

Really a true Oasis in the desert

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this property. It was immaculately clean, well furnished and totally enjoyable. The salt water pool was awesome!! We went down to Surprise for a family get together. We usually rent a hotel room but this was so much better. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the yard and pool wonderful. They had a solar powered owl in the back yard to keep the pigeons away and it worked. We laughed so hard at ourselves just watching the owl to see if we could catch him turning his head-we named him Homer :). Thanks Ryan for sharing your home-we would love to come back again soon. You were so helpful with all our questions and issues. Enjoyed cooking in your kitchen and the outside grill was an added bonus.
