Our home has been recently updated and has a new and fresh feel. And, even though this is a newer rental property for us, we own a summer rental in South Haven, MI (see VRBO Listing #324764) and have excellent reviews over the past several years. So, we know what you want and need to be comfortable!
We make sure everything is in working order, neat and clean and ready to let you get into 'vacation mode'. Take advantage of our bicycles to cruise the quiet neighborhoods.
We want you to feel like you're in Arizona and we make local resource materials available and convenient to help you get around and take advantage of all there is to do here.
You immediately notice how well-kept the neighborhoods in this area are. Our home is in an excellent location - just a couple blocks off the 'main drag' (Bell Rd). We have all kinds of birds, and you'll notice small kangaroos hopping around the back yard (well, actually, they're large Arizona Jack Rabbits).
The Golf Course fees are some of the most reasonable around.

We're Michiganders! But, Michigan is tough in the winter. After years of searching the US and foreign soil, we finally chose Sun City to be our winter paradise.
We chose Sun City for many reasons. This property is in the best part of Sun City (in our humble opinion). Quiet, but close to everything.
It's close to a major airport (Phoenix Sky Harbor) and major highways. It's close to good health care (minutes away). Sport, shopping, and cultural activities abound. The weather is great. We love the desert and the 'wild west'. And it's a great starting point for day or overnight trips to Grand Canyon, Vegas, California, etc. No place is perfect, but this is close.
Our home, The Hitching Post is just what you need as a simple base for activities. It's efficient, clean, comfy, and affordable. And you'll like the extra touches we've provided.
We're experienced at this and enjoy providing a nice rental property to explore an area. We've had a vacation rental in South Haven, MI for several years now with excellent reviews. We've decided to do the same thing here in Sun City because there's so much to see and the recreation centers are such a huge asset!
Sun City is a well-kept community filled with all of the activities you can imagine. With proximity to local golf courses, recreation centers, shopping, dining, spring training and professional sports, and the Greater Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Chandler areas all within a 10 to 30 minute drive.
