About Jan Ritchardson

Retired couple

Jan Ritchardson purchased this house in 2007

Why Jan Ritchardson chose Buckeye

We chose to buy in the Festival Foothills because of the blue skies and mountain views. Copper Canyon golf course is great for golfing.

What makes this house unique

You will love being able to walk out to the backyard and practice your putting on the putting green.

Thanks so much to Jan and Billy for trusting us with their awesome house. We came it to fresh flowers and fresh fruit. It had a very inviting atmosphere and I loved the elephant! The house was very clean and had everything you could possibly need and then some. It would be a perfect place for a family get-away. The house is set up with many family activities and a beautiful park just steps away. The walking trails are all fantastic, clean and safe. The entire area appears to be very quiet and safe. Although it is a short distance from town it wasn't an issue and loved the peace and quiet. The owners addressed a couple small concerns right away and are such pleasant people. We would highly recomend this peoperty for both seasonal renters and families.

We so enjoyed this beautiful property. The floor plan is great. Everything is here that you will need for an extended stay. We will be returning next winter for sure. So glad we found this home. The owners are easy to work with. The photos of the property look inviting, but the home is even better than the photos.

Great house in Buckeye

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and found the house well stocked with everyday needs, even some owner raised beef in the freezer for our use.

The house was clean and had appliances and a gas grill for our use. The owners were available if needed for problems but

we had no difficulties. Enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this property.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Arizona since moving out of state 2 years ago. Our decision for this location was based on the fact that they would welcome our dog. He is a service animal and travels with us, yet it is not always easy to find a facility that will welcome him. Bill and Jan were great to work with and the home was very inviting and comfortable. I prefer to work with VRBO because you communicate directly with the owners and thus establish a relationship. We would recommend this house to anyone and we will rent again. Great place to be if you have family in Sun City Festival as we do!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a home for a month in Arizona and we were beyond pleased. Owners delivered everything promised in the listing and more - even came out to the house to program the thermostat to our liking! The home was in excellent condition, extremely clean and in a very nice neighborhood. Enclosed yard was wonderful for our small dog. The huge park was only a few houses away and we got extra exercise daily! I would recommend this home to everyone.
