This newly renovated 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is located on a large cul-de-sac lot in the quiet community of Dove Valley Ranch. The home has 2 master bedrooms with private bathrooms making it a perfect layout for 2 families looking for an affordable vacation. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and the 4th and 5th bedrooms have 2 twin/singles each. Perfect for the kids or a few more golf buddies. The kitchen and adjoining informal dining area have all the conveniences of home. After a long day of doing nothing, relax, enjoy the A/C and watch a movie on the big screen. Or perhaps go for a dip in the huge heated pool and spa and then kick back around the firepit and watch the desert stars. This home is conveniently located close to the 101 Freeway, Bell Road, shopping, dining and numerous sports venues (see below for more information).
Golf: If you're looking for great golf, it doesn't get better than this. The Phoenix area is home to some of the best golf courses in the world. There's also a few lessor known hidden gems in the area. Some of my personal favorites are: Gold Canyon Golf Resort, Estrella Mountain Ranch, Grayhawk Golf Club, Troon North Golf Club, Talking Stick Golf Club, The Boulders Golf Club, Trilogy Golf Club, TPC Scottsdale, and We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. If you don't like any of those, there's 500 more to choose from.
Spring Training: Arizona is home to Spring Training for Major League Baseball. Affectionately referred to as the Cactus League, there are 9 teams (Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers) that host their spring training in the Phoenix area. Our vacation home is 5 minutes from the Padres/Mariners training facility and 20 minutes from the Rangers/Royals training facility.
