Quaint humble casa, across from Gold Canyon Golf Resort in the foothills of Superstition Mountains, on a hillside lot, facing southeast, in a small community of similar Santa-Fe style homes with a community pool. The pool is within walking distance through a cul-de-sac and down a gravel path. The pool hours are 9 to 10 and is not heated but a very refreshing dip if basking in the warm Arizona sunshine. This is a unique small community that provides a peaceful get away. There are no brick walls or fences in this little community just desert landscaping, gravel pathways and wide open spaces! My humble casa has the same open, warm, and spacious feeling as the community. It has an open floor plan with a great room and large sky-lite centrally located. Two bedrooms on either side of the great room have their own full baths. They each have queen size pillow top beds and a twin air mattress for each room. There is an open patio outside the front door with a conversational fire pit and swivel rocker chairs, with a hummingbird feeder for that something extra special. A second enclosed patio outside the sliding doors of the kitchen has a grill and patio table with six chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with all a family will need for their stay including a washer and dryer in the laundry area. The views at night of the diamond studded constellations are phenomenal due to night sky lighting in the community (no street lights). Enjoy the solitude of a natural desert setting while basking in the all day sunshine on the southeast patio or, for the nature enthusiast, get plenty of hiking on the many trails in the Superstition wilderness and golfing any number of the famous and scenic golf courses in the area. Welcome to my humble sanctuary and take advantage of all God has to offer in this exquisite, authentic wild, wild west setting ! Enjoy!

About Janet King
I am semi-retired from Illinois and I tutor "on the side". I love to spend time in the sun and appreciate the ambiance of the desert lifestyle. There is a sense of closeness to God in the solitude that I find out here in Arizona. It helps me feel more grounded spiritually, which benefits me in living life on life's terms. There is no way one can't feel close to God in the surrounding beauty of the landscape and the beautiful weather that Arizona has to offer. I love hiking, biking, and just relaxing in the warm sunshine by the pool or on my patio. The plant life is is very different from Illinois but I appreciate the uniqueness the desert has to offer.
Janet King purchased this House in 2018
Why Janet King chose Gold Canyon
I have loved this area for over 25 years and dreamed of owning a place in the breathtaking Superstition Mountain foothills. There is just so much to see and do and the climate is like no other with 90% sunny days. It is definitely a dream come true to own a place and to be able to share this experience with others looking for a respite from life on life's terms. I am also a nature lover and sun worshiper, which is why I have chosen Arizona for my place to kick back and relax!
What makes this House unique
I knew this was the place I had to have while driving east on Hwy 60 into the mountains. I had looked at other places in "suburbia" where the houses are identical and on top of each other with brick walls or fences, even condos with a balcony and a "far off" view of the mountains, but actually being IN THE MOUNTAINS is"where it's at"! The homes are the old southwest mission style dwellings, which adds to the uniqueness of this small community. The residents are very warm and friendly because that is the essence this area produces. My first day here my neighbor, Nancy, brought my aunt and I some homemade cookies and banana nut bread! Yes, the days of Mayberry, USA, if you remember that show. This is my sanctuary that God has given me to let me know, that "YES", dreams can and do come true, if you work for them!

Good location and nice property
Had a wonderful stay. Good location. Convenient to the Gold Canyon Golf Resort, Walgreens, and Bashas Grocery Store. Janet was great to work with. Property was well kept and clean. The area is quiet and was very walkable. Enjoyable stay and will likely be back.
I am so glad you appreciated the location, because I think it is magnificently awesome! Very quiet and peaceful with a great workout walking the area that is positioned on a hillside-great views as well. I love hearing that my guests feel comfortable and welcome in my humble casa. Thank you so much for your awesome review. Look forward to having you again.
Nice place, very clean. Owner is great. Took kids on spring break trip, enjoyed cubs baseball and organ stop pizza. The home has nice views, tv, Wi-Fi. All we needed. Time well spent. Thank you!
So glad the kids enjoyed their time while at my humble casa. I appreciate your comments and happy it met your needs as well as your standards for cleanliness. Thanks again for choosing my place among the many that are available!!
Quite, clean and comfortable stay
We stayed here because it was very close to some friends of ours staying in Gold Canyon. We were very happy with the house, the layout of the rooms and living space. The place was clean, everything works and appeared to be maintained. The owner communicated well and was available quickly for a couple of questions. I would give it 4 1/2 stars but it doesn't let me.
I would stay there again if going back to the area. Thank you for sharing your house!
Thank you for your favorable review. I am glad my casa was convenient and a clean enjoyable living space. I appreciate your suggestions for making my place more amenable in the kitchen. I want to thank you again for choosing my humble casa to enjoy your time in beautiful Gold Canyon AZ!!
Nice quiet home in a nice area
We found this rental to be an ideal setting for our family. It is out of the way of the hustle and bustle of Mesa, but close enough to several stores to get needed items. It was a nice and restful stay.
Thank you for the prompt review😊 I am glad you found it to be adequate and restful!😉
Gold Canyon retreat
We enjoyed our stay in Gold Canyon. The property is described as a humble casa but we found it to be an elegantly appointed home. Everything was clean and in excellent working order. It is quiet and tranquil and we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds coming in to drink on the patio. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
I greatly appreciate your comments on my humble casa😊 I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and found it to be a peaceful setting. I welcome you back any time you can get away😄 Many thanks!
This area is 20 minutes outside city of Mesa, a stones throw from the Superstition Mountains and its many hiking trails. Definitely for the nature enthusiast and those who appreciate the solitude and room to breathe, that wide open spaces emanates. A great place within reach of city life activities, but also far enough "away from it all".
