About Susan Formo

We have been coming to sun city since 1972 when our parents bought property here. As guests we brought our young children and enjoyed tennis, golf, rollerskating, swimming in the outdoor pools and using the fitness centers and park. We love the friendliness and positive energy of people on the go in Sun City. We feel fortunate to have found this stunning property with one of the best views on the lake!

Susan Formo purchased this house in 2008

Why Susan Formo chose Sun City

We fell in love with this property because of the phenomenal western view of the mountains, lake and park. The house is close to the water and secluded from neighbors. We cruise around the lake aboard our quiet electric pontoon boat almost every evening to watch the sunset and greet fellow boaters. The lake is stocked with large mouthed bass, blue gills and catfish so we fish from the boat or the dock. We enjoy our coffee and freshly squeezed juice right at the water's edge at the table in the fruit tree orchard.

What makes this house unique

175 feet of waterfront with a pontoon boat to cruise the lake and a golf cart to explore sun city and play golf on any of our 8 golf courses. The sunsets from the covered patio are not to be equaled! The house is very comfortable and fabulous for entertaining.

Couldn't have been happier

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful two months in this home. The home is so comfortable and has everything you could possibly want. The sunsets were absolutely incredible. In the afternoons we really enjoyed cruising around the lake on the little pontoon. We love the quietness of the electric motor. A golf cart just made it more fun to run errands. And again this year we can't say I enough good things about Susan and David and Larry and Jeannie, our neighbors. We were planning to rent again next year but instead we bought a house in the neighborhood. It is a lifestyle that we want to be a part of. Thank you Susan and David.

Fantastic Location, Great Amenities, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We loved taking advantage of the Recreation Center activities - bowling, tennis, miniature golf, paddle boats - and much more. We enjoyed cooking in the extremely well supplied kitchen, the beds were all very comfortable, and the WIFI allowed me to keep up with just a little work back home. I can't say enough about the beautiful sunset views while cruising the lake on the pontoon boat. I hope we are able to return soon and would definitely recommend this home to others!

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks with another couple who stayed for the entire month. The home is very comfortable with every amenity possible! The location is great and very central to the many activities in Sun City and surrounding area. Having access to the golf cart was also a great plus. The weather couldn't have been better and the owners are lovely people and willing to help or answer any questions. Thank you David and Susan!

THE BEST IN SUN CITY!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two heavenly months at this exceptional house. It really has everything........comfort, location, beauty, etc. Looking out at a lake instead of the back of another house makes this home feel more like a resort. The spacious interior is attractively furnished and the kitchen is equipped just like home and more. In the early morning you can take coffee out side, in privacy to watch the sun rise, throw in a fishing line and pick oranges and grapefruit for breakfast. Later, jump in the golf cart to head to the course, the gym, the pool.....all within a few blocks. At sunset have cocktails on the boat. The house is at the end of a quiet dead-end street with friendly, helpful neighbours. We are delighted to have selected this unique rental!

Our guests are always surprised when they arrive at our desert home and discover we have 175' of private waterfront on a beautiful lake with mountain views! The lake is stocked with bass and tilapia and fishing from our pontoon boat is a favorite pastime (only to be rivaled by a happy hour circumnavigation).

We are surrounded by mountains and wildlife (great blue heron, swans, canada geese, ducks, dove, bunnies and hummingbirds).

Sun city is best known for its active adult community with 7 recreation centers and 8 golf courses. Each Rec Center has a a fitness center and swimming pools along with miniature golf, bocci ball, shuffleboard, lawn bowling and a variety of clubs (metal working, woodworking, painting, pottery, jewelry making, computer, bowling, cycling etc.) These facilities are within walking distance or a short drive. As golf carts are legal street vehicles in sun city you will find many people using their golf carts both on and off the golf courses. For $60 you will have full use of all 7 rec centers, hobby clubs and 8 golf courses (plus $27 for greens fee).

There are bike trails along the aqua fria which includes a nice park that makes a great resting place. Arizona is an amazingly diverse and beautiful state. Winter skiing can be found north in flagstaff, or south to Mt. Lemon. Sedona's world renown red rocks and hiking areas should not be missed and you can be at the south rim of the grand canyon in 4 hours. Better yet, take a helicopter tour of both the north and the south rim. Scottsdale with it's museums (the musical instrument museum is a must see), fine dining and shopping is only 35 minutes away.

Many restaurants (italian, thai, mexican, chinese, american), bars and theaters are within 10 minutes of our home.

The mariners and padres have spring training at the Peoria sports complex just 10 minutes from our house along with the hockey stadium. The Cardinals and Phoenix Suns games are a 30 minute drive. All this and a wonderfully relaxing home to return to where you can watch the sunset behind the white tank mountains as you cruise around viewpoint lake in the pontoon boat.
