Ron and I own a contracting company near Vancouver BC. We grew up in North Vancouver BC and have been married for 35 years. We have 5 of the most wonderful children on the planet, including a son in-law and a soon to be daughter in law...and so beautiful 2 year old Grand Daughter who takes our breath away every time we see her.

Debi Carrington purchased this house in 2010

We knew we loved this place the second we walked through the front door. We have 2 full time rental properties in the area and were thrilled when our realtor found us a home we could use for ourselves. It's quaint and cozy and calms us from our crazy work schedule. The blue skies and warm weather of Arizona are a welcomed break from the windy, wet, west coast of BC. We thought we would be able to spend more time here, but work keeps getting in the way plus we can't bear to be away from our family for months at a time. Which are the reasons we are now offering our home as a vacation rental.

We love our little home in the middle of the desert. It has a hint of Spanish Mission architecture, Spanish White washed walls, pottery and unique bits of art. This a casual and welcoming place to be. We love the pool, the sound of the birds, the rustling palms, and the native plants that surround the yard. The cactus, walls of flowering Bouganvilla and the fruit bearing lime tree...which are great for Margaritas, make Casa Contenta our home away from home. We're situated just 2 blocks from the South Lake where you can take an evening stroll and soak up the magic of the Phoenix sunsets...walk to the shopping mall to pick up your groceries....go for a bike ride or simply enjoy the warmth of the Arizona sun and people. The Golf Club of Estrella is also within walking distance and has fantastic Friday and Saturday night dinners on the club patio. You can dine under the stars, around one of the gas fire's simply perfect. Phoenix Raceway and Spring Training are only minutes away, while Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Mexico are great day trips or overnighters.

Sweet Dreams on Dreamy Drive

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
The property was just as listed and the owners were very nice to work with. The house was clean and well maintained although the kitchen was a little dated. My wife and I were very relaxed when at the home, primarily due to a nice ambiance of the house; it just made us feel welcome and at home. Great location, which was about 2 blocks from the lakes and 1/2 mile from the golf course. We thoroughly enjoyed the solar heated pool which also was a nice cost savings by not having to pay additional fees for heating the pool. The grandkids visited us and spent hours in the pool. The backyard was also very nicely landscaped and provided a nice setting for relaxing, barbequing and hanging out by the pool. Close proximity to ball parks and many other activities. We tried to rent the house for next year but it was already taken. Obviously, we would return to this property again.

Owner's Response: Steve and Gloria...thanks for your review! I agree the kitchen is a little dated, but well equipped. We do have plans to renovate in the future, maybe this year if all goes well. We're happy you had time to relax and spend some quality time with your grand children. We personally can't wait to spend more time in Goodyear when we retire...which won't be soon enough.

Dreamy Drive

We spent January and February 2014 on Dreamy Drive and it was a great experience. The home is warm and comfortable, nicely decorated and well equipped. The backyard is beautifully landscaped with a pool, where we spent many enjoyable hours sitting in the sun reading. Two important benefits were being just a block and a half from the Estrella park that features two lakes, where we frequently took our dog, Chester, for a walk. Also, the beautiful Estrella Golf Course is right at the entrance to the neighborhood. Thanks to Debi and Ron for welcoming us into their home and being good hosts.

Beautiful home! Exactly as pictured. Owners were extremely easy to deal with, they really went out of their way to accommodate our dates. We fell in love with Phoenix and will definitely be back to stay in Estrella!

My husband and I had a great time visiting our 14 month old grandson. Our son and his wife came over to cool off in the pool. The house was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We had trouble cooling the house down when we my husband called the owners for help. They gave him the instructions and we had a nice cool house :-)
Owner's Response: I do apologize and thank you for letting us know about how hot is was in the house. We encourage our guests to contact either our on site home watch company with any issues as soon as possible or contact us as you did. We seem to have resolved the air conditioning programming problem and we're glad to hear you had a nice visit with your family, even with the heat in the house on your first day in Goodyear.

A great place to call home-away-from home

We rented this home for six weeks while our new home in the area was under construction. Debi and Ron were very gracious hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their home. The backyard was fully enclosed and beautifully landscaped. There was a solar-heated pool that we enjoyed using just about every morning and evening. The furnishings and beds were very high-end and very comfortable. Beautifully tiled snail showers in both bathrooms. We enjoyed the location, which was just a short walk from the two lakes in Estrella Mountain Ranch. The dogs appreciated their daily walks around the lakes as much as we did.

The owners had regularly scheduled visits from a gardener and a pool company, so everything was kept up very well. There was also a local contact to address any maintenance issues that could arise.

The home is well situated in Goodyear. Only a short distance to the Goodyear Spring Training Baseball facility, and within 10-15 miles of good shopping and decent restaurant choices. Beyond that there are all the things to do in the greater Phoenix area, with easy freeway access.

We would highly recommend this home for your stay in the area.

Owner's Response: Gary,
Ron and I were pleased to hear Casa Contenta worked out for you as your home-away-from-home while you completed on our new house. Estrella Mountain Ranch is such a beautiful area with so many amenities, we're sure you and Sue will enjoy living there full time. We're a bit jealous actually! Maybe we'll get a chance to meet next time we're in Goodyear.
Thanks again for choosing Casa Contenta.
