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.
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.
Local produce: Schnepf Farms and Queen Creek Olive Mill
Excellent Day Trips include: The Boyce Arboretum (Superior AZ), The Desert Museum (Tucson AZ), Salt River Canyon and Roosevelt Lake.
