About Alma Brown

We, Al & Kathy Dyck and Roger & Alma Brown, visited Estrella and were enamoured with the area. We love to go to baseball and hockey games and Phoenix has it all! We also love the lake walking paths. Al and Alma are brother & sister. Al & Kathy live in Vancouver, B.C. and Roger & Alma live in Winkler, Manitoba.

Alma Brown purchased this house in 2014

Why Alma Brown chose Goodyear

We looked at several homes in other areas and always came back to Estrella. It has a safe, resort like feel with many retirees and families.

Just a 10 minute drive gets you to a vast amount of restaurants and shopping in the Goodyear area.

What makes this house unique

This particular home had everything we were looking for, the size, a south-facing back yard with a pool in a wonderful neighborhood. As Canadians, we love the sheltered alcove where you can find both sun and shade! We attempted to make this place as relaxing as possible, with all the amenities that would make people want to come back again and again. We hope you will fall in love with it, just like we did!

Absolutely Amazing! - Wish I could write WAY more!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for what we wanted: Clean, Nice, and Private!

Communication with Alma had very quick responses, and any questions we had were answered immediately. Definitely the nicest owner I have dealt with!! We LOVE the Estrella Mountain Ranch area, It looks like a resort! It is an 8 minute drive from the highway to the house up a gorgeous hill, and is about 10 minutes away from any major shopping areas, major restaurants, and anything else that you could need.

The house is amazing, and the photos don’t do justice, it is so much nicer than in the photos! The house was well stocked with pretty much anything else we would need to stay there! It was only my wife and I that stayed there, so we did not use the other bedrooms or bathroom, but they were very nicely done, and very clean. The master bedroom is massive, and takes up an entire side of the house. It has two sinks, a shower, soaker tub, and a huge walk in closet that could almost be a bedroom in itself! The bed is VERY comfortable! We stayed in November, and the free pool heat was a blessing, but we did not have it very high at all, the solar pool cover kept the pool warm over the cool nights. The backyard is very nice, and the high block walls block any chance of people seeing you as you are outside, it is very private. For sun worshippers, the backyard faces the south, and in November, the backyard got full sun from about 10am right through the day. The added bonus of being able to use the garage is another blessing with this house. It is nice to be able to drive away without your skin melting into the seat and steering wheel!

The actual area that the house is in has pretty much everything you would need, and there is even a Safeway card on the dishwasher in the house so you can save a bunch of cash if you shop there! There are numerous trails, both paved and natural, that you can walk around for miles if you wish. Make sure and check out the Star Tower that is on the west side of the road as you’re coming up the mountain. We used the provided bikes along the paths around the lakes and fountains at any time of the day or night without ANY worries about our safety at all. The south lake has a really nice park, along with tennis courts, and beach volleyball courts as well! This area is probably one of the nicest, cleanest, and safest areas in the Phoenix area. The subdivision is very quiet during the week. After 7pm the only noises are the sounds of coyote in the mountains.

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a week at the property. The pictures don't do it justice it is nicer when you actually get there. The house was clean and and had all the amenities we could ask for. The Pool was warm, and our two daughters loved it. The owner was great she was very easy to get a hold of and provided a great deal of local knowledge. Everything was very close by and easy to get to (shopping, wildlife park, hockey arena) Great spot for a little family get away. Thanks again Alma and family.

Perfect for our golf vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was 2 couples for 2 weeks for 12 rounds of golf in the greater Phoenix area. The rental was perfect with not one complaint. The 2nd king bed was a real winner for us (one couple misses out on the master suite but still gets a king bed) the kitchen and living room were perfectly supplied and arranged, the pool was among the best we have ever had in a home rental. As for golf, the local golf course is amongst the best in the valley, we find the golf staff most friendly and accommodating while the food at the club is wonderful and reasonable. Staying in the west valley offers a lot of good golf courses within 30 minute drive and by using highway 303 you can make north Scottsdale and cave creek (amongst best golf courses in AZ) in about 60 minutes of haste free driving any day of the week (while a drive to Mesa or Chandler for golf is better left for weekends due to traffic). All in all this is a 5 star rental and the owners show real care in making sure your stay is as as good as the reviews. Thanks, Alma the rest of the owners.

Relaxed and Recharged in this lovely home

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed a week in this lovely home. We arrived and found the home to be as described - very nicely appointed, clean, and well kept. A fresh batch of cookies even welcomed us - a nice gesture. It was quite warm, as you would expect from August in AZ, so it took some time to cool the house down, but the ceiling fans helped keep it comfortable. Use of the garage was also an added perk to keep the rental car cool. The home had all the necessities, and was quite comfortable. We didn't cook in, after all we were on vacation, but the kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. Spent a good amount of time outside in the pool during the day, and ventured out in the evening. The Estrella area is so beautiful and tranquil.....perfect for relaxation. A local supermarket, and a couple of fastfood and a Starbucks within walking/biking distance; the big box stores and restaurants about a 15 minute drive. Casino in Chandler about a 45 minute drive. A couple of suggestions.....keep the cover on the pool!! We arrived and it was uncovered so there were quite a few leaves in the pool until the "pool boy" arrived mid-week. If you're a sports fan, no ESPN here so be prepared. Luckily, we had the Olympics so the guys made do with that. Overall, we had a nice relaxing week which what we set out for. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and answered all questions promptly. Thank you so much for allowing us to vacation in your home.

Owner's Response: Donna: Thanks for your lovely review. With regard to the sports channels, we had another request for ESPN so we have now added a sports package, including ESPN. We may require a specific request for it, as it is not used during certain months of the year. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you again! Alma Brown
