You can enjoy the restful beauty of this home, and still be only minutes from shopping, entertainment, golf courses and major sporting venues.

The completely furnished home has a light and airy feel, with vaulted ceilings in the main living areas. There is plenty of space to gather, either in the large front room, or the spacious family room… or step outside the back door and enjoy the patio area, complete with water views, desert plants and bird song!

Events, entertainment and recreational opportunities

The Phoenix area is host to many world-class sporting and entertainment events. The home is located within a few short miles of the University of Phoenix Cardinals Stadium. Adjacent to the football stadium is Gila River Arena, home of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. NASCAR races take place at Phoenix International Raceway, also just nine miles away. Major League Baseball’s Cactus League is home to fifteen MLB teams who spring train in the Valley of the Sun. Golf courses, hiking and biking trails abound in the Phoenix area. In addition, movies, shopping and restaurant options are moments from your Avondale location. Even closer to home, the back-door lake affords fishing (catch and release only) and a network of walking paths for casual strollers.

Easy access to Interstate 10 (1.5 miles away) puts Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix sports (Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns) and cultural venues within a 20-25 minute drive. I-10 and the rest of the extensive and accessible highway system make it easy to explore the Valley of the Sun and points beyond from your Avondale location.

So if you enjoy a quiet and unique setting in a comfortable home, with easy access to lots of activities and amenities - come vacation with us in Avondale!

About Angela Scott

We are a Colorado couple who love to get away occasionally from the snow.

Angela Scott purchased this house in 2014

Why Angela Scott chose Crystal Gardens

We have been traveling to Phoenix for the last few years to escape the Colorado spring snowstorms. We both love the desert beauty of the Valley of the Sun.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this lake community on our first visit and were fortunate to find a property on the water that will allow us to share this beautiful place with our family, friends and rental guests. The trails around the lakes provide residents and visitors with 8.75 miles of walking paths. We have spotted birds such as geese, ducks and herons. Every day we see something new and different.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is very comfortable and nicely furnished. Angela was very helpful and seemed to have the rental process very organized. Great to sit in backyard and watch the geese on the lake. Has WIFI and cable. Wonderful grapefruit from the tree in side yard. Have used VRBO numerous times, this was one of the most seamless stays I have had.

Looking forward to returning

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect! The home is maintained excellently and perfectly equipped with all necessary items. It truly was a home away from home. Every bed was equally comfortable! The location was beautiful and we really enjoyed being able to relax on the back patio and watch the geese swimming around while the kids played. Angela was beyond thoughtful and an absolute pleasure to communicate with before, during and after our stay. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area.

Sunny Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our month long stay, February 2016 in Avondale, AZ. The home was in excellent condition, very comfortable bedding and furniture through out the house. Kitchen is very well stocked, and the bonus was picking the oranges and grapefruit off the trees in the back yard. Everything in the house is high end and designed to make their guests truly feel at home.

Angela is very organized and provided great details making it very easy to rent their home. We are all ready looking forward to our stay in 2017.

Thanks Angela and Sam for all you did, our stay was sunny perfection.

Fantastic retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples of high school friends shared this beautiful rental home for an extended celebration of 53 years of friendship. Living on the waterfront was so peaceful and we enjoyed watching birds and the sunset over the water viewed from the back patio. We were impressed with the quality of all home furnishings, cleanliness of the home, comfortable beds, a very well stocked kitchen, a grill with utensils and a variety of rooms/outside areas that provided privacy for lounging, reading, quiet times or laughing with old friends. Patio seating was comfortable for up to 8 people. Fruit trees provided fresh grapefruit and oranges for breakfast. Numerous walking paths around the water provided a variety of options for exercise.

Waterfront in Arizona?? It's TRUE!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed a relaxing week in December at this lovely Avondale rental. The home is stocked with everything you could possibly need, all of which is what I would consider high-end and in good condition. The house lay out is conducive to visiting in the living area without disrupting those who might be resting in the guest rooms. Having the lake adjacent to the backyard made the sunrises and sunsets more vibrant than what I thought possible! In addition, the water draws many water foul, too. My husband and I will definitely look forward to renting this property again int he future.

I rented this is a beautiful home on a lake in Avondale, Arizona for my brother and his family visiting from Nigeria. Angela (owner) is fantastic, very friendly and extremely responsive at all hours. I would definitely use this and any other properties she owns.
