About the property

We will accommodate 30 minimum night stays through 2018.

The home was built in 2012 and updated in 2016 with fresh paint, new furniture, towels, bedding and everything you'll need to have a comfortable fresh place to enjoy. Our home is a twin home it's called a "duet" which means it has one common wall with the house next door. If you value clean and fresh we think you'll be comfortable here.

Our home is located in CantaMia at Estrella in the City of Goodyear, AZ, is a newer vacation rental and shows fresh and clean with a modern, comfortable feel. The home is 1203 square feet and is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, small luxury home.

All floors are ceramic tile and plantation shutters are installed on all windows.

Granite kitchen countertops, Whirlpool appliances and espresso cabinets add to the striking modern look of this small gem.

Enjoy casual dining on adjustable height swivel stools at the granite countertops or be seated at the contemporary glass/chrome dining set in the dining room. The outdoor courtyard in the front of the home includes a 3 piece bistro set and offers another great place for coffee and more.

The living room is freshly decorated and has a comfortable new in 2016 sofa/ottoman and chair/ ottoman. It includes a 50" smart TV and all tvs are connected to Dish Networks Hopper which includes a DVR.

A large sliding glass door exits the living room to reveal your outdoor living area. It features a large area of pavers that encapsulates 2/3s of the back yard and a pergola for shade with a retractable sunscreen wall for more shade/privacy. A beautifully designed and comfortable patio set and chaise lounge give you a great place to relax and enjoy. The backyard includes a gas grill and is attractively landscaped.

The master bedroom suite includes a HD television, bay window, double sinks, large shower with a seat and a walk-in closet for ample storage. A king size espresso color bedroom set with a gel-infused memory foam mattress (all new in 2016) complete the master suite, you’ll love it!

The second bedroom has a queen bed and is adjacent to the full bath.

The home has an attached double garage with opener that will accommodate two average sized vehicles. When you enter the home from the garage you will be in the laundry room which includes a Whirlpool washer and dryer for your convenience.

Our community of CantaMia is a 55+ resort style active adult community which means one guest must be at least 55 years old, children are not allowed to be tenants but may visit for a short time. Our home and property are smoke free which means no smoking inside or outside on the property. Pets are not allowed.

There are clubs that do many different activities from board games to art to botany. There are miles of hiking trails. If you Google CantaMia, Goodyear, AZ you can find more photos and information.

In addition CantaMia is located in Estrella which can sound a bit confusing but it is more or less a community within a community. This offers other opportunities. At the lakes near the Starpoint Center in the heart of Estrella you can use Sailboats, paddleboats, canoes or kayaks (Friday through Sunday) and enjoy time on the water and best of all its included by staying in your CantaMia home.

The Nickolas designed 18-hole championship golf course, Golf Club of Estella is available for CantaMia residents, that's you, at a reduced rate.

You choose what you'd would like to do and you'll likely never want for choices at CantaMia.

There are also plenty of casual and fine-dining choices down the hill,as we say, plus a grocery store just minutes from your door if you choose to cook. Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you should need for a comfortable stay.

Should you decide this is place for you, we think you'll have the time of your life!

About John Schmitz

We are John and Pam Schmitz. We are both from the Minneapolis, Minnesota metro area and have always called Minnesota home. We owned a home in Goodyear AZ. that we purchased in 2010 and sold in the spring of 2015. We used that home as winter getaway for 5 years. This is how we became familiar with the area and we enjoy that Goodyear is a newer community.

In our earlier years we were in the furniture business from both the wholesale and retail sides. We have experience in decorating and pleasing consumers.

Since 2008 we have been buying , rehabbing, selling and renting homes. We believe our past experiences are an ideal fit for vacation home rentals. If you are considering us for your vacation rental we will do our best to see that your satisfied.

John Schmitz purchased this house in 2016

Why John Schmitz chose Goodyear

CantaMia is a newer community started in 2010. It's a 55+ active adult community that's beautifully designed and maintained. It's safe, friendly and offers wonderful activities. It's a place that feels like a home away from home.

What makes this house unique

CantaMia is a safe, gated 55+ active adult community that's part of Estrella which is an all ages community, this offers a great blend of people and things to do as well as places to do them. I can't remember a place I've liked being at as much as CantaMia.

Nice community and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in CantaMia. There is a nice network of walking trails throughout the community. The Village Centre has a lot of activities. We especially liked the yoga classes with Julie, the indoor lap pool and fitness room. Happy Hour at the bar on Friday evenings is good fun and a great way to meet people. John is a great host and easy to deal with. The home is well equipped, modern and clean. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and we are happy you enjoyed your stay. With all the activities that CantaMia offers I’d be remiss if I didn’t forward the activity schedules. It’s what differentiates CantaMia from a regular neighborhood, it’s the resort lifestyle. We think most people come for the weather but they come back for the fun, that’s CantaMia! We look forward to having you both back.

CantaMia Active Adult Community Rental

  • 5 of 5

This home is tastefully decorated with all new furniture. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. The entire home is tiled which is wonderful for allergy prone people. This active adult community is fairly new and located in the beautiful Estrella Mountain Area. There is a Safeway shopping center just four miles away with several fast food restaurants, a bank, a pharmacy and soon to open urgent care facility. This home is close to the ball park, shopping, regional park and a couple of golf courses. The owners checked in with us via text to make sure all of our needs were being met. Would definitely stay here again.
