Welcome to Casa Sol

Only 20 minutes from the airport, this beautiful, freshly painted, 3 bedroom, bungalow is situated in the safe and family oriented community of Chandler.

Our bright and comfortable sun drenched home will allow you to quickly relax and jump right into enjoying your well deserved vacation.

Upon arriving at your home away from home, you will find a large double garage to securely park your car, as well as keep it cool and out of the famous Arizona sun.

This fantastic home was built for entertaining! Imagine returning to your private oasis in the desert after a day of golfing, shopping or whatever your pleasure and have the option to cool off in your centrally air-conditioned home, or prepare a meal in the bright open kitchen! If you’re in the mood for grilling, a propane BBQ awaits in the large, well groomed pie shaped back yard.

The home is fantastic for entertaining guests as well! The eight seat pub style marble kitchen table is perfect for bringing friends and family together for dinner, however it is also great for a relaxing game of cards after dinner or planning your next days adventure. If you haven’t had enough of the great outdoors, the covered patio has seating for six if you want to soak up the evening heat. After picking some fresh Oranges or Grapefruit from your private orchard, the covered patio is also a great place to have breakfast. Don't forget to pick some Lemons as well for the mid afternoon Cocktail!

The south facing backyard provides sun late into the evenings during the winter months. The maximum daylight adds to the enjoyment of your very own private heated/cooled, pool. For the safety of small children, you can take comfort in knowing there is a security fence around the pool and all the doors leading out to the pool are equipped with high exit handles. There are also floating pool loungers to help you relax. We have just added a NEW HOT TUB for our guests to enjoy. You can also play a game of Horseshoes in the Horseshoe Pit.

After dinner or a dip, you could head inside for a rousing game of foosball. For those looking for other options, a 52” flat screen TV can be found in the family room as well as Play Station 2 for the gamers! For those preferring a movie, your very comfortable, newly furnished living room also has a 52” flat screen HD TV. All TV’s have cable access. Free WiFi Internet access and a multi function printer are also available for those wanting to bring a laptop and surf the Net or check E-mails. If you are a music buff, a high quality portable sound system can be used inside or poolside.

The options to wind down privately in any one of the multiple areas of this newly furnished home, or congregate as a group in or outside are yours to make!

Your comfort is very important to us. The master bedroom boasts a king size bed with a Sleep Therapy mattress to ensure a great nights sleep. There is also a 40' TV. The master bedroom en-suite has double sinks and an inviting soaker tub to relax in as well as a shower. The queen size bed in the second bedroom is also a comfortable high quality Sleep Therapy mattress. In the third bedroom, you will find a very comfortable single over twin bunk bed, also with new mattresses. The twin bed could be used comfortably by a couple. The sofa in the living room has a queen size pull-out bed as well.

For the sports minded, your vacation home is situated near many popular golf courses in the Chandler/Gilbert area such as Ocotillo, Superstition Springs, Bear Creek, Kokopelli, Trilogy and San Marcos, just to name a few! Go to golfnow,com for up to 60% off area courses! Take in spring baseball training camp, Diamondbacks baseball, Cardinals Football, Phoenix Coyotes hockey, or a Phoenix Suns Basketball game.

Chandler Fashion Square, Arizona Mills and San Tan Village offer a great shopping experience to those that love to shop and the movie theatres are only 10 minutes away. Grocery shopping at Safeway is a 2 minute drive away.

There are also beautiful drives to the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, Sedona and Old Tucson that will enhance your vacation experience in beautiful Arizona! Another great drive is to Tortilla Flats, which started out as a stage stop in 1904. This is a beautiful drive through the Apache Trail/Superstition Mountains.

We look forward to having you stay in our vacation home, and we know you will enjoy your stay!

About Sara

This is a picture of our family enjoying our pool in Chandler. We live in Calgary, Alberta where it is cold and snowy in the winter months. We look forward to our trips to Chandler.

Sara purchased this house in 2011

Why Sara chose Ashley Park

We fell in love with the backyard. It is so spacious. The pool is so inviting and with the pool being heated, it is great year round. There is nothing better than picking a grapefruit or an orange fresh from the tree for breakfast or a snack. Any kind of drink with with a fresh lemon is to die for. The house is perfect for our family with two living areas so we aren't tripping over each other. We can't wait to get there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful honeymoon for us. We appreciate the effort the Ward’s put into maintaining their beautiful vacation home and the extra step they took to help us celebrate our marriage. We would recommend their home to anyone looking to visit the area; it was amazing!

My wife and I are 34 years old. We have four children ages 9, 6, 4, and 2. Our family has been to the Gilbert/Chandler area a number of times before, as we find it to be an easy, affordable, super-fun vacation for our stage in life. This property had everything that we needed, and so much more!

The two spacious living rooms and large TVs were perfect spots to relax and enjoy the AC. Our children loved the foosball table and puzzles as well.

All of the beds were very comfortable. They had clean blankets and linens, with awesome pillows. The master bedroom is very large, and has a massive closet and spacious 4-piece ensuite bathroom.

The bright kitchen was well-stocked with any appliances and dishes that we required (including kid-friendly plastic dishes). Also there was a pretty big selection of spices and condiments left from other renters, so we would recommend checking the kitchen before buying things like peanut butter, ketchup, oil, or spices.

The highlight of the house is the backyard. We spent over 90% of our daytime hours outside. We ate every meal on the covered patio. The BBQ is huge and very clean. The reclining sun chairs are super comfy and the massive patio umbrella was very useful too. We tossed a few games of horse-shoes. We picked and ate quite a few of the delicious white grapefruits from the tree in the backyard. And, of course, our children pretty much lived in the pool all week! There is a bin full of pool toys and loungers (we brought our own flotation devices for our younger children just to be safe). The pool depth ranges from about 3.5' to 5', so it's perfect for younger children and for lounging parents. The pool is in the sun almost all day long, which is amazing considering the large trees in the yard. And the pool lights made evening swims all the more enjoyable.

Even though it was between 90 and 100 degrees when we were there, we still actually used the hot tub! Our kids would hop in and out between dips in the pool. And, again, evenings were prime hot-tubbing times.

Sara (the owner) was a pleasure to work with. She communicated via email and text during the whole booking process and throughout our stay. She seemed genuinely concerned with our comfort during our stay.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is going to the Gilbert/Chandler area.

We anxiously look forward to our next visit!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sara's for a week. It was absolutely wonderful! The house was spotless and linens were very fresh smelling. The house had everything you could possibly need. We spent 80% in the pool. We grilled most of our meals on the grill and even sat by the fire pit one evening and sipped on wine. The neighborhood is very quiet and close to any shopping needs you may want. Only one suggestion I have and that is to invest in some adult floating pool loungers. I went and purchased my own during our stay.

Sara was very prompt responding to emails and any questions I had prior to our visit. I would highly recommend Sara's place for vacation and will definitely be back.

Warm regards,

Carol & Tony B, Minneapolis, MN

Thank you again for sharing your lovely home! We had been spending our "winter escape" here for 5+ years and had never been disappointed. It has been consistently is always clean when we arrive, fresh flowers to greet us and all you need for a terrific vacation! The heated pool , hot tub and the fruit trees are great amenities we thoroughly enjoyed. We continue to visit our fav restaurants..Zinberger, Pomo, Snooze, Nicco's, Crazy Crab, Pei Wie, and for special ocassions..Kai which we try to go once during our visit. We enjoy going to the Premium Outlet and the Biltmore. Robin and Casey do a great job in the upkeepof the house, pool and hot tub...very helpful and responsive. Sara and Adrian are a joy to work with. We always stay for a month. We're already booked for 2019!

Family Home

We have stayed in this property for the last 3 years and look forward to future visits. The fenced pool gives a great measure of security if young children are at the house. Sara and Adrian are very responsive to any questions or concerns. The backyard has a hot tub, propane fire pit and wonderful fruit trees. We would definetly stay here again.

Owner's Response: It is great to have you come back every year. A lot of people do like having the pool fence when small children are at the house. We are happy to hear you love all the features of the backyard. When you are in Arizona, that is where you spend most of your time. We look forward to having you back!

Car: recommended

We try to do a different activity on every trip to Chandler. Horseback riding with Saguaro Lake Ranch Trail Rides. I had never been on a horse before in my life and I did great. It was beautiful. Always wanted to try sky diving but a little afraid. Try Skyventure in Elloy, only 45 minutes away. Indoor sky diving at its best
