About Bill and Rosemary Woods

We are a retiring farmer and retired school teacher who live in rural Ontario Canada. We've done our cold time and look forward to spending winters in Arizona when we're fully retired.

Bill and Rosemary Woods purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Bill and Rosemary Woods chose Goodyear

After making several trips to the Phoenix area, the Estrella Mountain area stood out. The mountains, the lakes, the views, give the feel of living in the country.

What makes this bungalow unique

The view of the lake from the front door, the great room and master suite, and the patio, took our breath away. The short walk to the village center is an added bonus.

Wish I could give it "6 stars!"

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a beautiful home with a spectacular view in the lovely gated community with resort facilities. We were so impressed that we returned to this home after a 2 month stay to experience the AZ summer months and to further explore the area. We were so glad this house was available as it far exceeded our expectations. We felt welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. Actually, I believe this setting is better than a 5 star resort!! I have told all my Northwest friends to come and enjoy the sun!

The owners and local caretakers were responsive to every need and did everything possible to ensure a pleasant and carefree stay. They were very focused on excellent service for visitors to this home. I highly recommend a vacation here!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying, this is a 5-star! This home is rested back in a gated community that sits on a lake. Makes you feel like you are in an oasis with the views of the mountains around you. Very well decorated and comfortable. This was my first stay, and I feel like I am at home! Walking paths, hiking are all around you, but yet, so close to all the activity. Very active community center with gorgeous pool outside, and another inside. Wonderful fitness center and staff are very helpful. Lots of things to do here. Thanks for sharing your home Bill and Rosemary!
