About the property

A great house for the extended family.

PLAN A Fall getaway!!

And the pool heating is included in the rental! We still have a few weeks open in December and January, but they will not last long. Imagine yourself being here on a warm evening, lounging in the heated pool or just sitting around the fire pit with friends and relatives enjoying a mellow glass of wine.

Our 4200 square foot home is a very comfortable place to spread out, relax and enjoy a vacation with family and friends. It offers 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a spacious gourmet kitchen w/butler's pantry, breakfast nook, wide-open livingroom/family area, huge dining room, guest area TV room, laundry room and a 3,200 sq. ft. back yard with a barbecue, hot tub, fire pit and a 32 X 16 heated pool that is newly completed.

This upscale home is situated on a quiet, lovely street with no other abutting homes in front or behind and with immediate access to walking and biking trails. There is a private children's play area at the end of 150th Avenue, just a three minute walk away. There is very little traffic on the streets in the Hesper Knoll area, ideal for walking or bike riding in our friendly, extensive neighborhood.

Within the greater Phoenix area, there are an infinite number of things to do for fun, education and recreation. Cardinal Stadium, where the 2015 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl was played, is just ten minutes away. Hike Camelback Mountain. The Nascar Racing track is nearby as well. NBL Spring Training facilities are a short drive away as are educational venues such as The Heard Museum, Phoenix Science Center, Desert Botanical Gardens, the Phoenix Children's Museum, and the boulder formations in Scottsdale. Majestic Sedona (Pink Jeep Desert Tours) is a two hour drive north and Tucson, with its own many attractions (The Titan Missile Museum, etc) is two hours drive south. Further away are the Antelope Slot Canyons, Saguaro and Canyon Lakes and, of course, the Grand Canyon.

In addition there are many good restaurants and lots of shopping throughout the greater Phoenix area. The upscale outlet mall is ten minutes away.

Also, there are almost a dozen golf courses within 30 minutes drive!

The address is 4829 150th Avenue, Goodyear, AZ 85395

About Ron and Xiao Xiang MacFarlane

am a retired teacher and my wife is a practicing esthetician.

Ron and Xiao Xiang MacFarlane purchased this house in 2013

Why Ron and Xiao Xiang MacFarlane chose Palm Valley

I am a New England native who has always enjoyed warm climates. When my wife and I decided to invest in a piece of real estate, we chose the Goodyear area for multiple reasons, not the least of which is the warm weather, the economical living standard in the area, and the access to big city living (Phoenix) without having to live in the big city. We are retired, living in southern California and visit our Goodyear home Arizona home regularly.

Luxurious rental with all the extras!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was clean, welcoming, fully equipped with all we needed, and provided lots of space to spread out. Our family loved all of the extras: ping pong table, pool table, swimming pool, hot tub, dart board, bicycles, video game system, big screen TVs, etc. All of these fun toys made it hard to leave the house to explore the area. We still managed to take a day trip to the Grand Canyon, get in lots of time at Camelback Ranch to see the Dodgers, and to hike and horseback ride at the area's beautiful parks. This house is one of the best rentals we've ever booked thru VRBO. We will definitely return anytime we visit the Phoenix area in the future!

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults , 2 babies and 1 toddler had the most wonderful stay at the MacFarlane's beautiful home. Ron was very accomodating when booking the house as we had to change dates. The huge kitchen was stocked with everything you could want and there was room for plenty of cooks! We enjoyed the outdoor space everyday and especially appreciated Ron for letting us keep the pool temperature a very comfortable heat for the babies ( the adults appreciated it too!!)The addition of the crib, playpen, high chair and baby gates were greart. Our little 5 month old really enjoyed the walker as well. The pool table and ping pong table were well used in the evenings. The neighborhood is extremely quiet with lots of nice bike and walking paths. We would definitely come back and stay again.

Thank you MacFarlanes for sharing your house,

Was an absolutely beautiful home with anything a person could want/ need. Close to stores and attractions. Ron was very responsive when we did need to get a hold of him for questions. Would definitely recommend this large, spacious home with an awesome pool and hot tub to anyone looking.
