About Betty Serfazo and Craig Degenhardt

We are, Betty Serfazo and Craig Degenhardt, the second owners of this well built and maintained house. We bought the home to live in while Craig was working on an Intel project. His new project has him going to Moscow, Russia and me living back in Albuquerque near our children. We love travel and have lived in Israel and China and visited many other places. The homes we have lived in always hold a special place in our hearts.

Betty Serfazo and Craig Degenhardt purchased this house in 2013

Why Betty Serfazo and Craig Degenhardt chose Greater Phoenix Area

Fell in love with the kitchen. Bought it because the guest rooms were perfect with their own bathrooms. Guests are always more comfortable when visiting with a private bath.

What makes this house unique

The house was built in 1997, it is the newest house in the neighborhood. The builder/owner designed it from the ground up. He owned a lumber company in Oregon and spent his winters in Sun Lakes, he over saw every phase of construction. The orange and grapefruit trees are a wonderful treat. Neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are wonderful.

Thank you for the privilege of staying in your beautiful vacation home. It was perfect and much more than anyone would have expected. Instructions were great and every amenity was covered for guests. It is very high tech and great for those who need to check work and social contacts. Many activities were offered within a short walking distance and the Sun Lakes Country Club provided a place for food and recreational activities without the need to get into a car and seek entertainment. Golfing, swimming, fishing, pool, tennis and a restaurant were available for the interests of all. We will be back.

It was very homey and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house. Every bedroom having their own bathroom is a huge plus. The area is very nice and even though it is not a gated community it still seems very safe. The house and property was very clean as well. We want to rent this same house next year too!

Great Location, wonderful spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Having lived on Sun Lakes for almost a decade, we took my sons and my elderly parents back to see their friends after 6 years back in the UK. The house was ideally suited to the needs of the six of us. The rooms are large and well furnished and the view from the main room over the pitch and putt was great.

The neighbours were very helpful as well and we had a lovely fortnight, my parents felt at home as soon as we entered the house.

Thanks to Betty for all her help, we had an excellent stay

Better than it looks or described

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this home. We had guests who had their own private section of the house and private baths. BIG kitchen. It has everything down to the paper towels! Owner extremely helpful and friendly. The beds are very comfortable, except a king in the master would be nice. HUGE closets. Rooms are much larger than they appear in photos. The Laundry room is TO DIE FOR! She even leaves soap, etc, but I purchased my own. The view out the living room is looking out at a perfectly manicured "Pitch and Put" golf course and a walk/bike path. It is so interesting to sit and see activities. If you sit outside you can make new friends. There is everything there you could need even a computer and printer.!!! Which is in a den and provides a second sitting room. The clubhouse is dated but has more than enough to entertain everyone and they have activities all the time, plus 2 heated swimming pools! Tennis courts! Lots of wonderful lakes you can take a walk or bike around the area and have a very enjoyable trip. It would be nice to have a good map as it can get confusing! I made my own on google maps. The area is well developed and landscaping mature and very nicely maintained. This is an older area and not a new house, but the house appears to hardly have any wear. I think it must have been vacant many years. So things aren't brand new but they are very high end when it was built. The home has high ceilings, extra lighting luxuries, spacious halls, quiet, tv's in every bedroom and living room - huge 60" with cable and internet. If you are a homebody, such a good place to relax. If you want to golf, bike ride, go for walks, swim etc etc, it is all here! And huge garage! We took many day trips to various areas and we also have family and friends in the near area. We would have it locked up for next year but not sure where we want to go next year so take advantage before we do!

Outstanding home in retirement community

Been renting homes in Phoenix area for 4 years during Cactus League baseball. This home is by far the finest home we have stayed. Golf courses nearby. Home in the finest shape with the owners very accommodating.
