About Wayne & Tammy Cote

Wayne and I are excited about our new property. As life long Albertan's, we have been envious of the warmer weather in the south. Although we have traveled to a number of warm destinations, it is a dream come true to have such a beautiful place to call our own that we can visit any time old man winter gets us down. We are looking forward to meeting new friends in our neighborhood and you, whom we are happy to share our new home. Welcome to Casa de Cote.

Wayne & Tammy Cote purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Wayne & Tammy Cote chose Mountain Vista Ranch

We are newcomers to this area. We have vacationed in Arizona in the past and have friends and family who winter here regularly. We loved the beauty of the desert and enjoyed many of the sights of the area. Now that we own this property, we are looking forward to learning even more about the desert and the experiences it has to offer - and as we look, we find so many more things to do and see. (The picture is a trip we made on the Green River Valley steam train), highly recommended.

What makes this bungalow unique

Although we wouldn't trade living in Alberta for anything, we are really looking forward to spending time in shorts (even in the winter :). The real appeal of this home is it's open layout where we could easily see ourselves entertaining friends and family. Living in the country has spoiled us, and the privacy of the backyard with the pool and spa really was the clincher for us. We are also really excited about the amenities that are in close proximity. We love the outdoors and with the White Tank Mountains so close, we are looking forward to doing some hiking there. As we familiarize ourselves with this area, we are finding some truly amazing places that we will be sure to visit and share as we explore them. A moonlit walk in the desert and 'the wave' are two that sound so interesting to us. Lake Pleasant is 25 minutes north/east and has full amenities available for the water fan's in your life and a great eatery/pub right on the water at scorpion bay.Old Tuscon,Old Scottsdale,Nascar,Professional and Semi-pro baseball,world class tennis,Music and Art festivals, White Tank Mountains hiking and biking with 360 views that are one of a kind. This and more are just minutes from this home. Don't forget the Barrett/Jackson auto show and sale. You will not want to miss going to Se dona 2 hrs. north east for the day and please take the drive north to Flagstaff from Se dona as it is truly stunning and one of a kind tour. History and mining buffs in your group? don't miss Tombstone for a day trip, what a blast so much to do and see there with one of a kind valley views. If you must there is also two down hill ski hills available. The sunsets truly are beautiful each and every day. So much to do and see and so little time, hmmm! guess we will have to do a little each year,oh darn eh!.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our experience with the home in Mountain Vista Ranch. It was everything we hoped for, from the spaciousness of the home to all the amenities it contained. It was very comfortable and easy to keep clean. It had a great location that was very near the 303 and about 15-20 minutes from the 101. Near to a number of grocery stores and restaurants. The home and grounds were comfortable, clean and well cared for. Everything in the home was labeled well and easy to use. The beds and other furniture were very comfortable. The landscaping and pool were just beautiful and appreciated. I would not hesitate to rent this home again. One more thing the owners were very hospitable. Any questioned was answered in full, quickly and was very easy to understand. Great people!

Great property! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property, and very comfortable for our family of five. Nicely decorated and beds were very comfortable. Property was close to family we were there to visit, restaurants, grocery, etc. Homeowners were attentive and made it a point to check in with us to make sure everything was acceptable. We will definitely consider staying there again. Thank you Wayne and Tammy for making our trip amazing!

Worth Every Penny!!

  • 5 of 5

Wayne and Tammy have such a beautiful place. From the moment we booked the property, we were so impressed the quick, friendly, and professional service we received. The whole process was made so easy and they were so kind to accommodate us in every way they could to make sure our stay was comfortable. We stayed for over 4 months and there wasn't a day where we didn't feel spoiled and pampered by all the wonderful details of this property.

If we ever had a question or concern, Wayne was so quick to answer and accommodate all of our needs. We have never stayed in a place where we were treated with such 5 star service. Some of the highlights were the indoor/outdoor speakers wired throughout the house and backyard/pool area. The cleanliness of everything. The beautiful and amazing pool with surrounding vegetation. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very secure. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The beds were the most comfortable beds we slept on in any vacation home we've stayed at.

Thank-you Wayne and Tammy for making our summer magical and making us feel so welcome and cared for. I guess it's time for us to find our own place but it's hard to leave.

Great Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four-month stay in Wayne and Tammy's beautiful home. This home is professionally decorated and very comfortable. It is conveniently located with plenty of restaurants, shopping options, golf courses, and hiking trails a short drive away. There are plenty of other sightseeing opportunities within easy driving distances. We particularly enjoyed the many art fairs that are held around the area. We loved the private backyard oasis for lounging around the pool, exercising, and watching the woodpecker family in the saguaro cactus. The spa was very nice on some of the cool January evenings.

Wayne and Tammy are great to work with and we really appreciated how responsive they were to every question or concern that we had. We highly recommend their beautiful house!

A+ for quality of accommodations and thoughtfulness and attentiveness of the owners. We stayed seven nights, and never experienced a concern or reservation about our stay in this very attractive home. Home is spacious, attractively furnished with many Southwest accessories, and well-provisioned in the kitchen and pantry. There are several large televisions, several ceiling fans and a gas fireplace. Outdoor space is very inviting and relaxing. Pool/spa is a definite highlight. We would return without reservation. Home is also convenient to travel routes to area attractions. Recommend lunch or dinner at Wickenburg Ranch and Golf Club.
