Our home features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths (one en suite), in 1150 sq ft all on one level. A new home in 2006, It's been fully renovated and beautifully furnished in 2011 to welcome our guests. We're nestled in the Queen Creek/San Tan Valley area south of Phoenix, close to golfing at Johnson Ranch, and to local bike trails and hiking in the San Tan Mountain Regional Park.
With sleeping space for 6, an open plan living/dining room, and a breakfast bar separating kitchen and dining area, the house is designed for comfortable socializing and visiting. We offer a large-screen TV and Blueray in the living room, an iPod dock with home theatre sound, as well as cable, wireless internet and phone. We've selected a small collection of favourite movies and books to relax with.
The master bedroom has a queen bed, en suite bath, and plenty of closet space, along with a large-screen TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed and again, loads of closet space. The third bedroom features two twin beds. All three rooms have ceiling fans and blackout curtains.
Our covered patio sits in a private and secluded yard, ideal for those warm (and cool) evenings. We always love looking up into the Arizona night sky and enjoying the quiet.

Dee and David are a professional couple from Calgary, Alberta, who don't like winter. At all. And that creates some challenges. We have a fabulous daughter who loves horses, and we enjoy riding with her in spectacular settings. We love taking the opportunity to get away together while being conscious of budget, and we've had such good experiences travelling to vacation rentals that we wanted to share our experience and become owners.
Dee and David purchased this house in 2011
Queen Creek and San Tan Valley have all the benefits of winter warmth and sunshine, while being in a semi-rural area with recreational activities nearby. We literally have the desert on one side, surprisingly green farmland on the other, and the San Tan Mountain regional park above us. We're minutes from the Johnson Ranch golf area, the new Queen Creek YMCA at Copper Basin, and fresh produce from Schnepf Farms and the Queen Creek Olive Mill. We're far enough from Phoenix to appreciate the quiet, but near enough to enjoy the museums, sports and cultural events, and varied shopping.
We love the unique and changing desert, the open skies, and that desert moon.
Being minutes away from golf, hiking, biking, two community pools (one seasonal, the other at the Copper Basin Y with its full fitness facility and daily classes) is great.
We enjoy spectacular sunsets with the San Tan Mountains framing the sky, and at other times watching the lightning play around the whole East Valley.
Queen Creek/San Tan Valley is a great home base for easy day trips to Tucson and its mountain parks, to the nearby Casa Grande ruins in Coolidge, and to the many other nearby golfing opportunities. Sedona (just stunning) and the Grand Canyon are convenient short trips for two days or more.
Our family stayed at the beautiful Desert Moon Dreams for a month and had a wonderful experience. Dee and David are great to work with and take excellent care of their property. While we were there the water heater went out, they had it fixed the very same day! They were extremely prompt! They were very concerned and provided our family with great service. We highly recommend this vacation home. This home is a great value!!
This was a perfect house for me and my family. My sister lives in the area and was getting married the weekend we were there. The location was perfect. Everything worked perfectly in the house. Most of all, the communication we had with the owners was very professional, efficient and seamless. I'd highly recommend this house. One note, you'll probably need a car to get to the sites in the area.
For our first visit to Arizona, this was a perfect place to stay. It is in a more rural area so traffic is not a problem. But that doesn't mean it isn't close to shopping, cultural sights, and lots of things to do. The desert was in bloom and that made hiking so much more interesting. The owners were very easy to talk to and everything was handled very professionally.
This home was wonderful for us. We stayed in the area for two months and this home helped make our stay comfortable and convenient. The house is clean, kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for prepping meals, and huge TVs are nicely placed and easy to use. Lovely to have a washer and dryer on site. Beds are super comfortable (even for those picky about matresses and pillows!).
The house is located near grocery stores, Walmart, gas stations, restaurants, a local gym, an urgent care, and the YMCA. We also loved having a pool in the neighborhood, and we got spoiled being able to swim 3-4 days a week!
Because we stayed for an extended period, we were able to try out many local activities:
Three of the golf courses located in the area,
The Olive Mill (a local olive press with tours and a great restaurant),
The Arizona Science Center (a favorite with our kids),
local shopping and movie theaters (in Queen Creek, Mesa, and Phoenix),
and a weekend visit to Tombstone and Bisbee in southern Arizona.
We would highly recommend this home for short or long visits to the Phoenix area. Owners responded quickly to any inquiries we had and their home was everything we needed it to be!
Thanks so much!
Our overall stay was perfect. We (two couples) found the house to be very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We spent four days at a Country Festival during our stay and it was nice to come home to a hot shower and very comfortable bed. The house is conveniently located near the grocery store, gas station and Walmart (to pick up those things we forgot to pack). The owners also provided a Frys club card to help us reduce our spending at the grocery store and much more. Each morning we were up to go for a nice run in the area before we began our day. Overall a very comfortable and nice stay. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to the area and highly recommend you do the same. Thanks to Dee (owner) for her quick response to emails, answering of my questions regarding the area and giving us the opportunity to stay her in her home.
Dee and Dave were wonderful to work with and made all transactions easy. The pictures of the home were very accurate and the home was well maintained, clean, and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property for someone visiting the San Tan Valley area! Dee gave us advice on nearby attractions, activities, and restaurants which were very helpful.
