Blue skies, relaxing, golf, hiking biking and shopping are all minutes away. The pool is two minutes walk away, pitch and putt 3 min walk, Frys and other amenities 2 min drive away, Championship golf course Johnson Ranch is 3 min drive, hiking 15 min, 5 shopping malls with such stores as Costco, Macy's, Steinmart, Ross, Dicks Sporting Goods, Kohls and many more all within 30 min drive and BLUE SKIES everywhere. There is even a catch and release fish pond 2 minutes away beside the pitch and putt.
The house itself is spacious, with 4 large bedrooms, three with walk in closets. The master bedroom has a California king size bed with reading area and an ensuite with jack and jill sinks, bath tub, and stand up shower and a great walk in closet. Two additional bedrooms have large queen size beds and one has two twin beds in it. Enough room to get lots of privacy in air conditioned comfort or stretch out in the sun in the spacious back yard. The Kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and a great living and dining areas adjacent to a gas grill on the covered patio and uniquely painted back yard walls (fun).
Although we love the house we find that we spend most of our time golfing, hiking, spending time at the pool and hot tub, shopping, or going to see one of the many professional sports activities

My wife loves to shop and I love to golf and we both love the Arizona blue skies and heat. This is a perfect combination which started our search for our retirement home. Now that we are here we have found so much more. Bonus activities which have become a staple are hiking and viewing all of the different desert ecosystems, especially Saguaro cactus and Joshua tree ecosystems. We love to come here a couple of times a year, once in the winter for shopping, golf and to get away from the snow and cold and a guys golf trip in the spring.
We were in the area visiting family and this house was awesome and extremely clean. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed. The bikes were a huge bonus for use as we enjoy biking at home and were able to bike while in AZ. The house is conveniently located close to many restaurants and stores. The owners were very easy to work with and very responsive. We would definitely rent this house again and highly recommend to anybody else!
We needed a place that would accommodate a large group that was in town for a nearby family gathering - this home was perfect! Super clean, plenty of room, and the owners quickly answered questions before and during our stay. We will definitely rent again if we need to be in the area!
There isn’t much more that we can say about this home that hasn’t been said before. This place is fantastic!!! It was absolutely spotless, and had all the conveniences of home. It had everything that we needed, plus a lot more that was available but didn’t need or use. It was nice to be able to lock the car in the garage at night instead of in a motel parking lot! Great to look out to the back wall and see the fun painting. Relaxing to just look around and see all the thought and care that has gone into decorating and maintaining the home. Relaxing also to sit on the patio in the evening and enjoy the quiet. All the info that was provided in the welcoming letter was much appreciated. If we are ever in need of a rental in this area again, you can be certain that this will be our first choice!
The listing is very accurate regarding the location, appearance and amenities.
The property was clean and very well maintained.
Anytime I had any questions or problems (which were very few) they were answered immediately. I did have a problem with the microwave and it was replaced. Also the washing machine had a minor problem and the person who maintains the property was there to fix it without delay.
The property is close to everything you need, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants etc.
A nice touch was a notebook providing information on just about anything you needed (location of restaurants, shopping centers, golf courses, spring training baseball parks, television channels, etc.).
The home was very spacious, more than enough room.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to vacation.
Your description and pictures are very accurate.. The property is very spacious and comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and promptly answered all questions and provided much info about the golf courses, dining, shopping, etc. We had a little glitch with the washer and their friends who look after the property were taking care of it immediately. This is a quiet neighborhood and the Johnson Golf Course GREAT. San Tan Flats Bar/Grill has great food and a fun atmosphere. Thanks for letting us use your home.
Hi - I haven't submitted anything because it says only 1 person in the rental party can submit a review but these were my comments:
This house is exactly as the owner described and showed in the photos! The bedrooms are very roomy, (the master bedroom is huge!) The kitchen/dining area and the living room were a good size also. Three couples stayed together in the house and it was spacious enough for all of us. It is in a quiet neighbourhood about 40 minutes south of Apache Junction.
The owner was very helpful answering all of our questions, and has someone closeby who is available if there are any problems.
I would recommend this house to friends and family, but note that you will have to drive a minimum of half an hour to pretty much everything!
The San Tan Flat bar and grille is a must to go to (15 minute drive)! It is a great restaurant and bar with firepits by picnic tables outside, live music Thursday to Saturday, and of course there is indoor dining as well. Queen Creek Marketplace (30 minute drive) and San Tan Village mall (40 minute drive) are both great shopping areas. The Johnson Ranch golf course is very close and is a very scenic course! There a too many courses to mention them all, but some of the other courses we went to include The Links Golf course (15 minute drive), Apache Creek Golf Course (30 minutes), Western Skies Golf Club and Painted Mountain Golf Club (2 favourites) (45 minutes). (ask at Painted Mountain about the round of golf and steak supper for around $50 special!).
One thing I was disappointed in was that during the winter months, the Johnson Ranch/Queen Creek communities closed the pool and hot tub rec centre that was so close to the house!
The home is in the Johnson Ranch Golf Course subdivision about a 4-5 min drive to the pro shop. There is also a pitch and putt golf course about a five minute walk from the house or one min drive as well as a catch and release fish pond.
There are 5 main activities people participate in given the over 300 days of sunshine per year ( Golf, hiking/walking, shopping, professional sports/spring training and relaxing) You can google any of these to see which fits your lifestyle the best.
"The recession is over" so you cant expect to walk on to golf courses any longer and get a tee time, you must plan for your tee times. There is a binder at the house which identifies many of the local courses and you can use it in conjunction with local passes (like Troon f you have them) or sites like Golf now to plan your days of golf and tee times.
There are many walking and hiking trails within close access of the house. the closest is San Tan Mountain Regional Park. My Favourite is the Peralta Canyon trails. There are also literally hundreds of trails in the superstition mountains and Tonto National forest as well, many of the trails are also used as bike trails as well. You can choose the level of difficulty that fits your lifestyle from an easy flat walk to several hours of hiking up steep trails. These steep trails also tend to give the best views.
Shopping is everywhere, you cant drive 15 min anywhere north and west and not run into another mall. Marites favourites are the Queen Creek Marketplace (15 min), San Tan Village (25 min) Superstition Springs (35 min).
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix suns, Arizona Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals as well as several baseball teams hold baseball spring training as part of the cactus league in the Mesa/Phoenix/Glendale areas.
Relaxing is up to each individual, be it in a park, the back yard or at the swimming pool.
Their are several good restaurants in the area, details are in the binder found within the house.
