Property very well furnished, comfortable. Away from large city but community of Gold Canyon has restaurants, super market, services. Beautiful desert surroundings, scenic views from home and patios. Close to trails, nature centers, state park, national forest. Try Mining camp restaurant. Would definitely stay again.

This is a beautifully decorated home with lovely views. Quail, doves and roadrunners in the yard feeding, at night the coyotes entertain. Lots of outdoor space, the interior is well appointed. Much care is taken with this property.

Wonderful Condo, Gorgeous View in Gold Canyon

  • 5 of 5

The view of the Sonoran desert terrain and mountain vistas while sitting on Desert Moon's patio/terrace is stupendous. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the early evening to view beautiful sunsets that were followed by clear star-filled skies. What an awesome location!

The condo was appointed beautifully and provided a comfortable environment for sharing time with family both before and after spending long days hiking several fantastic nearby trails. The kitchen was well appointed. It was clean and well maintained.

We found the location of the condo very convenient for all of the activities we planned for the week. While we spent the majority of our time hiking, we also visited the arboretum, shopped locally, spent time in Scottsdale, and enjoyed many of the fine nearby restaurants.

We would love to return to Desert Moon and certainly will strongly recommend it to friends and family!

Phoenix/Sky Harbor, Mesa Gatwa/Phoenix
Nearest Golf
0.25 Miles
Gold Canyon Resort Golf Club
Car: recommended

Gold Canyon is located within 22.3 square miles of the Sonoran Desert and was inhabited by the Hohokam and Salado Indians. It is the heart of the story of the 'Lost Dutchman Mine', and is only a short drive from breathtaking Canyon Lake (boat rentals available). Excellent golf can be found at the Gold Canyon Resort, a public course, as well as the Mountain Brook Golf Club. Some of the best area hiking can be found on the Peralta Trail (hike to the petroglyphs) or in the Tonto National Forest (see the Cliff Dwellings from the 13-15th centuries). Easy highway access to downtown Phoenix/Sky Harbor Airport (40 minutes), or to Scottsdale (30 minutes). Truly an oasis in the desert!
