My name is Jackie, and I am retired from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Both my husband and I have lived in Washington State all our lives. We reside in Olympia. We both love the Pacific Northwest, but we wanted a place to go for some blue sky and warmth during the long, grey winter months. We've found that with the Estrella Mountain Ranch community and this home. We both absolutely love this home and the Estrella community along with all the amenitities this community has to offer.
Jackie Wilkins purchased this house in 2010
I have visited Scottsdale for the past 15+ years for a Girls' Weekend Out. Having been to the area on so many occasions, I knew the area would meet my needs in terms of climate, but I didn't like the traffic in Scottsdale. I wanted someplace more rural. Just by chance, my husband and I visited some high school friends on one trip. They happened to live in Estrella Mountain Ranch. After touring the area, I knew that this community was just what I was looking for in the way of location and amenities. It really seems to have something for everyone--golfing for my sons, the pool for my daughters-in-law, and the water park and playground for the grandkids.
I love the walking trails around the North and South lakes and enjoy walking them in the early morning hours with the other walkers/joggers/dog walkers or in the evening when the sun is setting over the hills. The Arizona sunsets are beyond beautiful, and I never tire of seeing them--whether it's from the lake, our backyard, or the Safeway parking lot! I also love driving to the Star Tower when the sun is setting to enjoy the sunset and to stargaze. I'm not sure what it is about this place, but I can feel the stress evaporate as I drive up the hill to our home.
Absolutely fantastic property, we recommend it to all who are looking to visit the Phoenix area. We spent the Christmas/New Year's week visiting our son and his family, he is stationed at Luke AFB and spent much of 2014 in the Middle East, so it was a very wonderful Christmas for all of us. The house is everything advertised on the VRBO web, and Jackie is a joy to work with. She was friendly, timely and courteous during all our correspondence before and after our visit.
The neighborhood is quiet, the Lakes are just down the street and the scenery as the sun comes up is beautiful. We did the entire "tourist" drill; Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Sedona, shopping, Tempe etc. The travel times Jackie lists and the maps and information package she provides in her guest book are all spot on.
You will not be disappointed if you rent this wonderful property.
Wonderful property, exactly as described/photos. Love the location, so close to amazing hiking areas and in a very peaceful, quiet area. Owner is so great to work with, very accommodating and responds to all inquiries quickly. Enjoyed it so much, this is a return visit!
This property was everything it was advertised as, very much enjoyed the area with the walking paths and lakes right there. Absolutely fantastic Golf coarse right there.(one of my favorite). Would have been nice if the pool was heated but the owners had warned us of that prior to booking. Jackie was very open, honest and a pleasure to deal with.
Our experience here was very good. There are places with more amenities perhaps, but the the furnishings were complete, and then some. Never once did we think "Oh, I wish we had brought this" or "I thought this/that would be here". The big plus for me was working with the owner. She was prompt in communication, and patient and understanding when I failed to send a required document. If want a hassle free experience, I would highly recommend this VRBO and owner
A lovely roomy home for family fun. And plenty of seats for our family get together (about 20 people) They community around was very nice and we felt very comfortable with the neighborhood. Jackie was very helpful and available. we would definitely stay here again!
We enjoyed staying in this spacious home. The entire experience worked out very well. We have been visiting Phoenix area for spring training and golf for the last 15 years. This trip was the best!!! The home is located in a very quiet neighborhood, with TWO golf courses located within a couple of miles.
As to Spring Training , the home is within 20 minutes from Surprise stadium (Rangers/Royals); 15 minutes from Camelback park (Dodgers/White Sox); 10 minutes from Maryvale park (Brewers) & 6 miles from Goodyear park (Reds/Indians).
We loved the location, not any problem with traffic or congestion. (associated with downtown Phoenix or Scottsdale). The house felt like home; we attended games or played golf everyday and it was so nice to get 'back' to the house to relax, unwind and get ready for the next days activities.
The owner of the home was very accomodating and made the whole process flow seamlessly. 5 Star Rating for Home, Location & Owner!!!!
