About Douglas Hanon and Virginia Reed
Virginia & I live full time in Juneau, Alaska, and enjoy 3 or 4 months of "get-away-time" at our San Tan Valley Home. Alaskans often seek out the warmer climates for reality checks and vacation runaways. Virginia was born in Juneau and I hail from the Portland, Oregon area, although because of my father's 28 year career in the Air Force I've called Honolulu HI, San Antonio, TX, Charleston, SC, and Tacoma, WA, home as well. In 1971 I traveled to Juneau, Alaska to visit friends for what started as a months visit and turned into a 46 year immersion into the Alaskan way of life. . .and along the way I found Virginia, the love of my life. Both of us are retired from the State of Alaska, Virginia retired in December 1999, under an early retirement program and I retired in September 2008. We both love to travel and visit Puerto Vallarta or Cabo San Lucas, MX, at least 2 or 3 times a year. We also love to spend time in Arizona where we both have family and friends. Having our home in the San Tan Valley also allows us to bring family and friends down to experience the wonderful Arizona weather, sights, and culture. Our children and grandchildren love the times they have spent here with us.
Douglas Hanon and Virginia Reed purchased this House in 2011
Why Douglas Hanon and Virginia Reed chose Skyline Ranch
Virginia & I have always loved the warm weather and we both have a special fondness for exploring new places. As Alaskans, the outdoors play a big role in our lives whether it's salmon or halibut fishing during the spring and summer or skiing at Juneau's Eaglecrest ski area in the winter. Arizona holds the same lure for us with spectacular outdoor recreation and natural wonders and historic archaeological sites to explore. The Grand Canyon, Casa Grande Ruins, the ancient ruins in Globe, and hundreds of other incredible historical sites and geography to wow even the most stoic visitor. It's all here and after almost 5 years we're still only just getting started exploring the Arizonan Outback.
What makes this House unique
Our San Tan Valley Home was a must have from the very beginning. The home was 1 of 4 model homes for the Phase II expansion of the Skyline Ranch subdivision. It had premium features including tile floors, finished backyard patio with French Doors exiting from the family room, and a small and intimate backyard with no homes on the back or sides with a view into our backyard. Directly out the front door of the house and across the street is a nearly 2 acre grass park with a playground for family and children of the neighborhood. Shopping is easy too with a Walmart grocery & department store less than 1 mile away. Within 5 miles is a Safeway, a Fry's (Krogers) Grocery Store, the Queen Creek Market Place Shopping Mall, a 14 theatre Hawkins Theatre, and a Denny's, Olive Garden, McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, and numerous other restaurants and fast food establishments. My favorite restaurant is the San Tan Flats Steakhouse located just 3 miles down the Hunt Hwy at the intersection with South Ellsworth Road. . .awesome Ribeye and Flat Iron Steaks, including outdoor live music several nights of the week.

This house is a great place to stay. Doug & Virginia always go out of the way to make sure we have everything we need. If we run into a problem the response time is almost immediate. They are great people to work with.
The accommodations were excellent
Well furnished and clean. Owners were easy to work with. Would definitely rent again
The property was clean, location was great and perfect for our family.
We relocated fro California and our new home was not complete before we moved to Arizona and this was a perfect home for my family and I to stay. The owners were absolutely the best and I feel like I have a new friend in San Tan Valley.
Thank you Doug!
Beautiful home, with all the amenities of u'r own home. Very clean, nicely decorated & up to date.
Spent 7 nights in the home, very spacious, especially the master suite, which also had a computer/office room that was available for use. The beds were very comfortable. Nice covered backyard patio with BBQ, which we used & entertained family that lived in the same neighborhood one evening. Great neighbors. Kitchen w/ everything u need. Nice park directly across the street. We came back to the home @ 10pm one night exausted after a long 2 day trip to Sedona/Grand Canyon/Jerome and all said "We're home". Overall would definately rent again. Didn't want to leave. Thanks for allowing us into u'r home.
This is a lovely home in a great area. We stayed here awaiting our new home to close. Directly across the street is a park which was wonderful for my son. Great as well for business travel as there is an office. Overall I highly recommend.
