Overview

Valley of the Sun House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 bedrooms, 2 Ba (Sleeps 6), Optional heated pool

Welcome to our piece of paradise in Estrella Mountain Ranch! From the minute you step into the side courtyard approaching the main entry, you will realize that you have arrived home. This newly renovated home has been updated with designer paint colours, new 18 inch tile in all the right places, and new carpeting in the bedrooms. We are situated on a corner lot backing onto a manicured park with gazebo and BBQ pit. The streets are quiet, and neighborhood is friendly and well kept. The world class golf course is within walking distance and the lakes nearby with the resort recreation facilities and palm trees are a vacationers delight. Looking for some fun in the spring, just head on down to the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds spring training facilities...only 10 miles from home.

Our home offers a great room floor plan giving you a large open space for entertaining, socializing, and relaxing. The large living, dining, and kitchen areas with 13 foot vaulted ceilings add to the grandness of this open space, and of course, there are plenty of windows to see the sparkling private, heated pool and beautiful backyard. The backyard is an entertainers delight with covered patio, infrared natural gas BBQ, and pool. Sit back on one of the comfy rattan chairs or take in the sun on a lounger. The backyard is for relaxing, playing, and enjoying the weather that Phoenix has to offer. Want to take in a swim at night... no problem. The pool is well lit and adds to the beautiful aura of the evening as you stargaze and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Optional pool heat is also available during the winter months at $25/day.

The home is newly professionally furnished and decorated, with three good sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The Master bedroom is a palace delight with lots of space, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, high quality linens, expansive ensuite with soaker tub, shower, dual vanity sinks, and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, and the third bedroom consists of two twin beds with pillow top mattresses. Need an extra bed, feel free to utilize the sofabed in the living room. All bedrooms come with additional linens and towels.

The living room has plenty of seating with a couch (queen size sofa bed) and loveseat. Enjoy the 50 inch TV, listen to some music, or just read a book. The dining area has a beautiful wood table with seating for eight. Access to the patio is through 8' sliding doors and security screen doors to keep kids safe from the pool.

The home has a laundry room with sink, washer, and dryer. Kitchen comes with a gas stove, over the range microwave oven/fan, side by side fridge with filtered water and ice, and dishwasher. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. Just bring your food and beverages!

About Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto

We are Canadians living in Vancouver, BC. We love the mountains and outdoors so saw Estrella as that perfect getaway from the rain and snow. We enjoy vacationing at our home in Estrella two to three times a year and our family loves it here. The kids enjoy the private pool, patio, and park that we back on to, and there is never a shortage of memories made with grandparents and family. This is our home away from home.

Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto purchased this house in 2013

Why Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto chose Valley of the Sun

We were looking for a resort style community that offers beautiful scenery, palm trees, lakes, mountains, and golf. We wanted amenities to be nearby. Estrella offers it all. This was one of the nicest communities we looked at in all of Phoenix.

What makes this house unique

We were looking for privacy and found it with this home, located on a quiet corner lot with a beautifully manicured park that backs onto our property. We are a walk to the golf course, 10 minute drive to spring training to see the Reds and Indians, 20 minutes to see the Coyotes and Cardinals, and 35 minutes to the airport. There are not many locations in Phoenix that can offer the proximity of all these attractions in a community that feels like you are vacationing in a resort. The minute you drive into Estrella, you will know that you've arrived to somewhere very special!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautiful and beat hotel living by a mile. Having access to the home's private and perfectly sized pool made it for us, as we spent 90% of our free time there! Can't beat the weather either. We also loved how close all the amenities were for groceries, golf, hiking, movies, etc. I also saw that there are a ton of spring training baseball fields within 10 minutes of the home. The only knock I had is that I couldn't watch ESPN, but my wife considers that one of the big benefits:-) The owners made the whole experience enjoyable and easy. We look forward to staying here on our next trip to the Phoenix area!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a terrific stay Mike. October is a beautiful time to visit. We bought in Estrella for the beauty of the area and the proximity to so many great things that you experienced (golf, hockey, football, baseball, hiking, stores, etc). Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope you'll return again soon!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time and that Estrella turned out to be a place you'd return to. Nothing like a refreshing dip in 107 degree weather! That pool is a life saver in the heat. Thanks for taking great care of our home. We hope to see you in the near future!

Perfect Home, Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough positive things about this home and its owners. The home is immaculate. The layout is beautiful and sits at the base of the mountains...gorgeous and very relaxing. Anthony and Michelle kept in touch with us and did everything to make sure we were quite happy with our stay. The location is beautiful and there are many, many activities/sights available to see within 30 minutes to 2 hrs away. This was the absolute best vacation my wife and I have had in years. We already have discussed returning next year. I feel I have made a friend for life in Anthony. He's an amazing homeowner. My wife has MS and Anthony was especially interested in making sure everything was perfect for her. The pool was great therapy for my wife. I can't say anything negative about our experience. We totally enjoyed our vacation and would highly recommend that if you are going to Arizona that you consider contacting Anthony and staying at his home. Location was great...easy access to the Cardinals, Dbacks, Spring training facilities, Arizona State facilities, etc. Just an incredible place to stay!!!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us Joe and Lisa. The time we spent chatting on the phone and email was always enjoyable and indeed, we too feel that we have found a friend in you. I know that several times you commented to me about the layout of the home and how this was perfect for you and especially Lisa. We really wanted this to be right for you given the fact that you finally got a chance to get away. We are so happy that our home worked out for you and that the pool was therapeutic. We do hope you'll return and we're so grateful that we had the chance to cross paths with you both. Please do stay in touch!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with Anthony's assistance throughout the rental process as well as how quickly he responded to any questions or concerns we had. The house was very clean when we arrived. The backyard is an oasis. With the park behind it was very private and quiet. We especially enjoyed sitting out in the back with enough seating for 8. The patio set and gravity chairs made it wonderful. Our weather was above average for February (we can't credit Anthony for that) but every day was a pleasure to take your coffee out to the backyard. You can see some of the mountains from the patio. The master bedroom is huge with very nice facilities. The dining room worked great for our guests. We were able to seat 8 very comfortably.

Our damage deposit is already being refunded which is an added bonus for VRBO rentals. Anthony had the phone system changed as soon as we raised the issue. He was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process.

We would definitely rent from him again should we return to Goodyear.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed our home Dan and Kathy. Since it is our vacation home, we wanted something in a quiet neighborhood, but also close enough to amenities should we need anything. We love having the quiet park in behind us and of course the pool. It makes for a peaceful and relaxing vacation for us. Thank you for the kind words and we look forward to having you back!

Absolutley amazing property

  • 5 of 5
Just spent 11 days in this amazing property. The house was even nicer than the pictures showed. Tastefully decorated, and clean as a pin. Looks and feels like a brand new home. Very spacious with large open layout......wish I could take the master shower home with us! Huge rooms with beds so soft, it was like sleeping on a cloud. All amenities in a fully equipped kitchen (and the best of amenities), including wonderfully comfortable patio furniture, and brand new full size barbeque. Things like shampoo, paper towel and toilet tissue even included......most unusual when we rent other self catered properties.... but not here! Pool was a little cool (unheated), but was so nice at night with the lights and water feature.....soooooo relaxing. We were a little nervous of noise as there is a park right behind the property, but it was not an issue at all. Did not see many people there at all, so the pool deck was very private. Debbie (caretaker) and Anthony (owner) were amazing to deal with. Had a couple of questions and they were answered within minutes. Owner called a couple of hours after we checked in to ensure all was OK....now that is service! House located in a very quiet clean neighborhood, just far enough outside the city lights so you could see a billion stars every night. Grocery store, pharmacy, and restaurants just minutes away. Very close to two very beautifully large lakes with abundant walking or bicycling spaces. Saw people catch 18 inch carp on a rod/reel while we were walking. Access to beautiful clubhouse as well for a very small fee. Would highly recommend this property! You will not regret staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review Mike and Judy. It means a lot to us that you enjoyed our home and appreciated the follow up from us. One of the reasons we purchased our home was because of the privacy and quiet neighbourhood. Leaving the busy city for our vacation there meant that we wanted a peaceful community with amenities nearby. We love Estrella for that reason. Sorry the pool was a little on the cool side. You hit that time of year when the nights start to cool off and the water temperature gets cooler. We are actually preparing to install a heater in the new year so that the pool will be heated for next winter. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to you returning in the future!
