Overview

Photos and Description of this Estrella Mountain Ranch holiday house

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Modern 2-storey on the 6th fairway of the Golf Club of Estrella, in a gated subdivision. Our beautiful newly renovated house can accommodate a large group of people with 5 spacious bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 3 living rooms and 2 dining areas. You will relax in our home with its elegant decor and neutral colours. The unimpeded view of the golf course and mountains from the back patio and upper balconies will ease you into the vacation mode. Low-allergen home thanks to hardwood and travertine on the floor, granite on the countertops and the built-in desks. The well equipped kitchen will satisfy most amateur chefs. A 'suprise' basket on the kitchen island awaits our hungry travelers. Expect a good night's sleep on the Beautyrest or Sealy mattresses, pamper yourself on the luxurious linens and pillows. There are 3 TV's with satellite reception, 1 Playstation, 1 Bluray DVD, 3 alarm clocks (1 for IPod), free Wi-Fi. The large backyard has a swimming pool (unheated) & fountain, a gas BBQ grill, marble dining table & 10 chairs, 6 lounge chaises, 2 hammocks, a fire-pit table and a canopied swing. Upper back balcony has a sofa set. There are 2 adult bicycles for your leisurely rides, free of charge.

House

We are offering our house to those who want to spend a hassle-free vacation, not confined within the limited space of a hotel/motel room. Space is the word. Although we reserve one room and the single garage as housekeeper's storage, our guests still have access to 3432 sf of living space and a double garage. There are two suites: the master suite is very spacious, has a king bed and a sitting area; the guest suite has a queen bed. The other 3 bedrooms are on the second floor: the 'front' bedroom can accommodate a couple with a young child with a queen bed and a twin bed; the 'middle' bedroom has 2 double beds and the 'back' bedroom has a twin bed.

The front of our house is facing a green belt with a children's playground & gazebo, the back opens to the soothing greenery of the golf course. From the top back balcony the golf course's water feature is clearly visible. You can enjoy the mountain vistas from almost every window.

The house is kept in excellent conditions and very clean.

Community

It was love at the first sight. My husband and I are Canadians looking to own a piece of the Valley of the Sun. It was the first community in Phoenix we came through in our house hunting attempts. When I saw the two beautiful lakes, the stately queen palms lining the boulevards, the immaculate green grass around the Starpointe Residents Club, the state-of-the-art fitness facilities, the Yatch Club, tennis courts, I said to my husband: 'This is it, let's not look anywhere else!'. Of course, the place looks like a page from the five-star vacation brochure! Today, our love for the community didn't wane; we are so proud to be part of the number one master plan community in Arizona.

Conveniently located just 7 miles south of the I-10, on the south western corner of Greater Phoenix, Estrella offers excellent outdoor pursuits in golfing, boating, walking, biking, hiking, tennis. It's also close to sports venues, shopping, restaurants, theatres, all that a vacationer demands from a big city.

Golf

The Golf Club of Estrella is a par-72, Jack Nicklaus II-designed 18 hole course, managed by the prestigious Troon Golf. It's right at the backyard!

At the entrance of the community is the Tres Rios Golf Course at Estrella Mountain Park (formally known as Estrella Mountain) which was originally designed by renowned golf course architect Red Lawrence. This par-71 parkland style golf course had its grand opening on Friday Oct. 29 2010.

In Goodyear, north of the I-10, about 20 minutes away is the Eagle's Nest Country Club at Pebble Creek, a semi-private course. Also north of the I-10, on Litchfield Road, there are the Long and Short at Palm Valley Golf Club.

The Tuscany Falls Country Club offers 3 courses: Falls, Lakes and Palms.

Near Goodyear, the following golf clubs are within a short driving distance: Cold Water Golf Club in Avondale, the Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park offering 3 courses: Blue, Red and Gold. Also in Litchfield Park, you can play at the public course Falcon Golf Club.

In nearby Buckeye, you will find the Raven Golf Club at Verrado and Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia in Peoria.

The list is endless, you have got to make several trips back to Phoenix to try them, although not all, I'll bet!

MLB Spring Training

Our house is a 15-minute drive to the Goodyear Ballpark, home of the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds.

We are within a 35-minute drive to two other West Valley Stadiums: Surprise Stadium ( Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals); Peoria Stadium (San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners).

NASCAR

The Phoenix International Raceway (P.I.R.) is a 20-minute drive from our home.

Owner's Response: Dear GFY, I didn't know one adjective could say so much about many things! Thank you for the glowing review, especially it did mention the owner as awesome. It's my pleasure to host you and your party year after year. With you, the rental process became as simple as saying yes to an old friend to just show up at the door! Thank you for your consideration, treating my house as if it were yours, and for appreciating the beauty of the Estrella community as a whole. Can't wait to welcome you back! Thalie

We love the home but the pool needs a heater very cold in November

  • Review Submitted: Sep 27, 2016
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2015

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Brrrr, you're right, the pool was pretty cold last November. I was there just before you, we were using the pool daily during the last week of October 2015, and just like a magical switch, the first week of November the air was too frosty to warm up the pool. However, one of my friends always took an "ice bath" in the pool after a strenuous bike ride or a hard fought tennis match, she said it helped her body recover faster than in a warm shower. Banter aside, in 2011 I did some research and had obtained quotes from contractors for the pool heater, decided not to go with it. My decision was based on the fact that pool heat is a waste of energy, and the practicality (or lack thereof) of having to cover the pool when it's not in use. I must, however, agree with you that it'd have been nicer if we were able to swim in a heated pool in the winter months. Thank you for voicing your concern, I wish I could provide you with a perfect stay; unfortunately this is one rare occurrence that I had failed my guests. For your next booking, please request something easier and I'll try my best to accommodate. Thalie

GREAT house, location, amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house for a 4-night stay the weekend after Labor Day. What a pleasure! We had 7 adults and 5 kids (8 mos. to 6 yrs). We used the crib and the extra cot, and put 3 kids together in one room for half the time, then camping out in the Master BR with the Grandparents the other nights. It was a lot of fun, and we appreciated the extra room to spread out a bit--both for general sleeping and for kids' naps.

We spent long mornings and late afternoons in the pool, and it worked well for our young ones. There is enough shallow area for them, and the deep end was only 5-6 foot, so perfect for our young swimmers to dive for rings, etc., with the adults. Appreciated the safety locks on the patio door; it made our time there worry-free. Grilled, gamed, played on the playground across the street, bicycled around the neighborhood, enjoyed the golf course views, watched movies, made quick trips to town (10 mins to Goodyear) for groceries. All in all, a great weekend.

This house is about an hour east of Phoenix, so we opted not to drive in for any activities; the kids were perfectly happy at the house!

There is a community pool/fitness facility, but the water park features closed on Labor Day, so we opted to simply use our own pool for the whole time--but we did check out the center and it was really nice. Perhaps another time.

The house was spotless and lovely, but felt very comfortable and liveable for our families. We had a few technical glitches over the weekend, but the owner was very responsive and cordial working them out--a sign of great customer service to us. We highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Dear Julie, Thank you for your patience with the Directv techinical glitch, it was frustrating but thanks to your cool and ability to "conquer" the technical maze, we got it up and running. Also, a sincere thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review, it opens my eyes to what my guests truly enjoy and appreciate. I owe it to my housekeeper who always does a great job of getting the house ready before the guests arrive. I have to confess that I did give her a "white glove" test, and she passed: blinds, window sills, furniture, walls ... were spotless, like you said! I'm happy that you had a good time during your stay at my vacation home. I'd welcome you back any time; you're a very kind, meticulous and considerate person, I am lucky that you chose my house for your vacation. Best regards, Thalie

Beautiful large home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for a week after my daughter graduated from GCU. There was plenty of space for everyone and we all enjoyed the pool and sunshine. The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was that the furniture in the main living area only sat about 5 people comfortably. We fixed this for our group by carrying a couch from the other room into the tv room and finding more chairs for the kitchen table here and there. The owner was extremely good at keeping in touch with us and communicating at every step of the rental process. I would recommend this house to others looking for a large, clean, fun and safe home to rent.

Owner's Response: Dear Donna, It was my great pleasure to host you and your family for the wonderful occasion of your daughter's graduation from GCU. Right from the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew you would be the perfect guests, and my impression of your consideration continued to grow as we maintained our communication throughout the booking process, ... until your check out time. Thank you very much for putting back the furniture where you had found it, it was a big help to my housekeeper as she's a petite lady. Please pass on my thanks to your son/daughter - I can't tell by the handwriting :-) - that his/her comments in the guest book are both refreshing and moving. I'm glad that your family enjoyed your stay at my vacation home. Hope you'll come back to stay at our place again! Best regards, Thalie

Just a FABULOUS home to vacation in

  • 5 of 5

This home was above my expectations. Everything is top notch and a wonderful layout. Beds are very comfortable. Thalie was great to work with and patient with all my questions. Loved watching the early morning golfers from the back upper patio with a coffee in the morning. If you love the outdoors , Estrella Mountain is the place. Mountain biked the FINS trail a couple of times (great trail with something for every level of biker) , hiked in Sedona and South Mountain and golfed Estrella Mountain Ranch, Verrado , and Wigwam. After a great day we would wind down our evenings sitting around the pool in the quiet of Estrella Mountain Ranch and just unwind. Thank you Thalie for sharing your wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Dear RM, I'm really glad you had a good time at my vacation home. I appreciate your clear communication during the booking process, prior to your arrival as well as during your stay. Your feedback is valuable to us, it helps us improve our amenities and understand what's important to our guests, thank you! The Greater Phoenix area and especially Estrella have a lot to offer: nature, culture, sports venue, sporting events, ..., so if you decide to come back for another visit, just send me an email or call, I'm happy to offer you a small discount for your repeated business. Once again, thank you for the positive review. Best regards, Thalie
