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 Sanalina

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!

The perfect escape from winter weather in the NW

  • 5 of 5

We had friends and family join us at different times and vacations - everyone (ages 5-70) had a wonderful time. House is well appointed & very cozy, the pool is awesome, and the owner is extremely responsive! Our fourth vacation here and we'll be back!

Paradise in Arizona

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Phoenix area several times now, and this is by far our favourite place to rent. It's simply perfect. It's very clean, the owners are very easy to deal with and it has absolutely everything you need for an Arizona getaway. The backyard is amazing, you can relax in the pool and watch your favourite show on the outdoor TV.

You can't go wrong with this place.

This is our third getaway @ this lovely private desert oasis. Obviously, we love it!

Our home is in Flagstaff so we are glad to have a timeout from our winter snow.

150 miles later we are in our warm pool enjoying sunshine and warm temperatures.

Look No Further - You will not find better accommodations

  • 5 of 5

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.
