About Thomas and Heather Carr

We started coming out and visiting relatives in the Phoenix area in about 2006. The first time we came out was in Feburary to escape the winter weather from Cincinnati/Northern Ky area. After visiting for a long weekend we fell in love with Arizona and the Phoenix area. Where else in the world can you have the perfect weather,beautiful blue sunny skies, amazing scenery everywhere, perfect location for day trips.

A few years later we ended up purchasing some properties that we could rent full time and maybe enjoy down the road. These homes were both two stories and not a lot of backyard space.

We decided that one day we want to live in AZ and might want a nice ranch style home. So after months of looking we came across Estrella Mountain Ranch and could not believe how perfect it was for us and also for family and friends. So we ended up selling the two properties we had and upgrading to this beautiful ranch style home with the perfect location for us.

For now we can only enjoy this home for part of the year. We would love to share our amazing new home and give everyone the experience to enjoy the home and the beautiful area. We will do everything we can to make sure you have the best vacation experience possible!

Thomas and Heather Carr purchased this house in 2014

Why Thomas and Heather Carr chose Greater Phoenix Area

This is the perfect location! We chose this area because it has an incredible resort style feel to it. The views are to die for. You are surrounded by mountains in every direction and when you combine the mountains, Sonoran landscape, the lakes, Palm tree lined roads and golf courses you have the perfect setting. As you drive thru the community you will love the views and love the resort feel.

What makes this house unique

This upscale home is located in a Gated Community and located on Estrella Golf Club a Troon golf course. Home has tall ceiling 10 foot and 11 foot ceiling with upgraded amenities and beautiful window treatments. It's hard to describe but it also has a very comfortable feeling also. Just something about this area that always puts you in the best mood. Not sure if it's the blue skies every day or the sunset over the mountains or just the sound of a golfer driving by in the back yard. But it is so relaxing and peaceful here you won't want to leave.

Enjoy swimming year round in the heated Resort Style pool and enjoy soaking in the hottub in the evening under a starlit sky.

This is truly a perfect location for an incredibly relaxing upscale vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tom and Heather,

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We've stayed at many VRBO rentals, and nothing can compare with yours!

The pictures don't do it justice! When we arrived (thanks to your excellent driving instructions), we walked into an immaculate resort home - everything was beyond perfect!

The beds were so comfortable; the kitchen made all our meals an extra pleasure!

The pool and spa were the highlight - we spent more time in the yard than we did anywhere else! The outdoor grill was easy to use; the pool was heated to just the right temperature.

I think what impressed us the most was that you checked in with us to make sure everything was good, asking if we had any questions, making sure we knew how to operate the remotes for the pool and spa - it really showed us how much you two care about your property, and made us feel very welcome and secure.

Believe me, we'll be recommending your property to our friends and family! We're hoping to return to Phoenix within the next two years, and we'll be calling you!

Thanks again for making our vacation so delightful!

Excellent vacation spot for family.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at this property. Nice, quiet new community away from the hustle of the central city of Phoenix. Well stocked with supplies and great service from Tom the owner. We stayed with 6 adults and 1 child. This house certainly met our needs, we would come back and stay here again.

Perfect relaxation! Lovely comfortable home with all the finer touches! Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Besides visiting the Grand Canyon and Sedona we were perfectly content to spend the rest of our vacation simply relaxing and enjoying the features and surroundings of this lovely home! Tom was totally available for any questions and responded immediately. I loved that he suggested I text him shortly before arriving back from the Grand Canyon trip and he would remotely set the a/c to cool the house and turn on the heat for the spa to have it ready to relax tired, achy bodies! So attentive and thoughtful! But then, he's always been that way! Comes from a great family, right?!

The best place to stay in Estrella

  • 5 of 5

The most relaxing part of our vacation was our stay here. It was so nice to hang out by the pool all day. The beds are extremely comfortable, we all slept really well. Tom and Heather always make sure our stay is perfect. It was nice to have the shaded area in the back by the pool so you can hang out in the back all day and not worry about getting sun burnt. We always have the best time when we stay here. Thank you so much Tom and Heather for letting us stay. We cannot thank you enough. You guys are the best.

We WILL be back!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this amazing home for a week in August. (people thought we were crazy for travelling to AZ in August, but it was PERFECT (a dry heat) lol :) The house was better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so very much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home for our family vacation. From the very beginning to the very end it was paradise, we didn't want to leave. Tom and Heather's hospitality is top notch. We loved the pool area and spent many nights lounging outside gazing at the beautiful stars. The Community area was awesome as well.

Thank you again for your hospitality and kindness, for allowing us to use your beautiful home to make so many memories. We will certainly be back! Kathy Darras 8/2017
