Sun City Grand House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 full Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Relax in this spacious, 2,000 square foot home overlooking the fifth fairway of the Desert Springs Golf Course in the award winning Del Webb Sun City Grand Community. This two bedroom, two bath retreat with den and great room features a wide open backyard with beautiful mountain and golf course views with spectacular sunsets (see video below) and is in an upscale, adult community with outstanding golf, swimming and health club facilities and great restaurants within the facility!

Most homes in Sun City Grand back up to each other and have small backyards with little privacy. This home is uniquely positioned so that it has an expansive backyard (where you will see rabbits and quail scamper by) with privacy and long views across the golf course and mountain views to your left and right. The home is set back off the golf course so you enjoy the vistas, have great privacy from neighbors and are far out of play of the course. Enjoy the outside Weber gas BBQ as you watch sunsets across the golf course and mountains. Also because of the property setback, curtains can be left open to enjoy the spectacular views all day long as you relax on the comfortable leather sofas and chairs in the living room.

The home is also unique in that is is set up with 'dual master' suites which are perfect for two couples. Additionally, a den off the living room has privacy screens which can be used for sleeping in the den. High speed wireless internet in the home so that your friends and family can check on their email and surf the web with ease from their computers from anywhere in the house or on the patios.

The Sonoran Plaza and the Spa and Fitness Center in this Del Webb community offer state-of-the-art amenities for just about every enthusiasm. In addition to beautiful pool and exercise facilities additional amenities include a Softball Field, Woodworking Shops and Arts Studios. Five minutes away, in the spectacular Surprise Stadium, is the spring training home of the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers. 15 minutes away in Peoria Stadium is the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres Spring training location. Guests receive free access to the 2 pools & spas and Owner golf rates of $42 with the purchase of a $125 REC card per person.

Beyond the city limits, you will find art galleries, symphonic concerts, and professional and college sports galore (the Suns, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, and Coyotes all call Arizona their home). A little further away (a morning's drive really), you'll find snow skiing in Flagstaff, hiking in Sedona and camping in the Grand Canyon.

About John Appler

John & Diane Appler live in Los Altos, California and are parents of three grown boys. They also own a lakefront vacation rental in Auburn, CA.

John Appler purchased this house in 2001

Why John Appler chose Arizona

The property is uniquely situated to provide relaxing views across two mountain ranges. Sunsets from this vantage point are often spectacular. Because of the property's setback it is away from golf course play and provides privacy from distant neighbors across the golf course. Rabbits and quail are frequent entertaining visitors in the backyard.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing views, privacy, wide open drapes, tons of sunlight inside, Del Webb quality construction.

We stayed here for a month and enjoyed it very much. A beautiful clean home with all amenities and a superb view. A place to relax and enjoy. Air conditioning works great, defiantly needed in the summer.

Sun City Grand

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. The patio that overlooks the golf course is very relaxing and as stated is well away from the activity on the course. The whole Sun City Grand facility is extremely friendly and we will not hesitate to return. The house was very clean when we arrived and there is lots of utensils, bedding, towels ets, a nice way to spend a vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much, Colin - really glad you and Nancy will be staying again next year. Also glad you guys like the relaxing view over the mountains - when Diane and I saw that we simply told the realtor "We'll take it !".
