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 very best rental. We would use it every year.

  • 5 of 5

This place was beyond perfect. It was totally equipped, exceptionally clean, and allowed us to have a wonderful two week vacation. The pool was clean and warm. The owner communicated quickly with any of our questions. I even ask him if he would consider selling it. Top of the line rental for sure.

Great Home, Great Weather, Great Owners.......Perfect Getaway Spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in the Phoenix area. The home was great, clean (very clean) and spacious. Ryan and Angel are very detail oriented and ensured everything you could possibly need is available. The location is centrally located with a reasonable drive to downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, and short trips to Sedona, Cave Creek, etc. We requested the pool to be heated and with the cooler January months it was great to relax in a 90 degree heated pool after a day of sightseeing or just hanging out during the day. The back yard with the pool is a great area to relax. Grilling area with radio, TV, and Frig. It doesn't get any better!!! Hope to be back to Phoenix. I won't waist my time looking at other homes. This one was perfect.
