My wife, Joyce, and I are originally from Iowa. I have always been involved in real estate and Joyce worked as a teacher and later, career counselor at a private university. We have one amazing daughter, Alexis who is going to Fort Lewis College in Durango CO. We enjoy the ocean and traveling back to Puerto Rico as much as we can. During our travels, we met Steve and Dee Coats and their daughter and her husband Alex, who now helps us run our business. They are one of our greatest assets in providing a great place for you to stay.
Also another very important part of our family is Sam and Jake, two dogs we got from Puerto Rico. We love dogs and support ARF, an animal rescue foundation in Rincon Puerto Rico. We have brought back several strays or 'Satos' (beach dog) to our home here in Arizona.
We started with Villa 1 and ater extensive remodeling, we decided to rent what we now lovingly call Villa 1 Lower. Within a year, we bought Villa 2, which was only one story at the time, thus expanding Sunset Paradise to 2 units.
In 1996, we moved to Puerto Rico and continued to remodel and expand Villa 1 and Villa 2. Each time we expanded, we did so with the highest quality materials and décor because this was our home. Eventually, we moved back to the states and currently live in Phoenix, AZ. Because the Villas were our home, there are a number of special “touches” that aren’t found in vacation rentals … “touches” that we proudly now share with you.
In 2005, the small home next to Villa 2 became available. Our Villas were consistently rented so we decided to purchase what now is known as Villa 3. Villa 3 began as an 800 sq ft building and has grown into a 9 bedroom Villa.
Why stop there? As of 2010, our guests enjoy a swimming pool and spa with bathroom and shower located on the rooftop that spans Villa 2 and Villa 3. The rooftop pool is available for all of our guests to enjoy.
