Modern 2-storey on the 6th fairway of the Golf Club of Estrella, in a gated subdivision. Our beautiful renovated house can accommodate a large group of people with 5 spacious bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 3 living rooms and 2 dining areas. You will relax in our home with its elegant decor and neutral colours. The unimpeded view of the golf course and mountains from the back patio and upper balconies will ease you into the vacation mode. Low-allergen home thanks to hardwood and travertine on the floor, granite on the countertops and the built-in desks. The well equipped kitchen will satisfy most amateur chefs. A 'suprise' basket on the kitchen island awaits our hungry travelers. Expect a good night's sleep on the Beautyrest or Sealy mattresses, pamper yourself on the luxurious linens and pillows. There are 3 TV's with satellite reception, 1 Playstation, 1 Bluray DVD, 3 alarm clocks (1 for IPod), free Wi-Fi. The large backyard has a swimming pool (unheated) & fountain, a gas BBQ grill, marble dining table & 10 chairs, 6 lounge chaises, 2 hammocks, a fire-pit table and a canopied swing. Upper back balcony has a sofa set. There are 2 adult bicycles for your leisurely rides, free of charge.
We are offering our house to those who want to spend a hassle-free vacation, not confined within the limited space of a hotel/motel room. Space is the word. Although we reserve one room and the single garage as housekeeper's storage, our guests still have access to 3432 sf of living space and a double garage. There are two suites: the master suite is very spacious, has a king bed and a sitting area; the guest suite has a queen bed. The other 3 bedrooms are on the second floor: the 'front' bedroom can accommodate a couple with a young child with a queen bed and a twin bed; the 'middle' bedroom has 2 double beds and the 'back' bedroom has a twin bed.
The front of our house is facing a green belt with a children's playground & gazebo, the back opens to the soothing greenery of the golf course. From the top back balcony the golf course's water feature is clearly visible. You can enjoy the mountain vistas from almost every window.
The house is kept in excellent conditions and very clean.
It was love at the first sight. My husband and I are Canadians looking to own a piece of the Valley of the Sun. It was the first community in Phoenix we came through in our house hunting attempts. When I saw the two beautiful lakes, the stately queen palms lining the boulevards, the immaculate green grass around the Starpointe Residents Club, the state-of-the-art fitness facilities, the Yatch Club, tennis courts, I said to my husband: 'This is it, let's not look anywhere else!'. Of course, the place looks like a page from the five-star vacation brochure! Today, our love for the community didn't wane; we are so proud to be part of the number one master plan community in Arizona.
Conveniently located just 7 miles south of the I-10, on the south western corner of Greater Phoenix, Estrella offers excellent outdoor pursuits in golfing, boating, walking, biking, hiking, tennis. It's also close to sports venues, shopping, restaurants, theatres, all that a vacationer demands from a big city.
The Golf Club of Estrella is a par-72, Jack Nicklaus II-designed 18 hole course, managed by the prestigious Troon Golf. It's right at the backyard!
At the entrance of the community is the Tres Rios Golf Course at Estrella Mountain Park (formally known as Estrella Mountain) which was originally designed by renowned golf course architect Red Lawrence. This par-71 parkland style golf course had its grand opening on Friday Oct. 29 2010.
In Goodyear, north of the I-10, about 20 minutes away is the Eagle's Nest Country Club at Pebble Creek, a semi-private course. Also north of the I-10, on Litchfield Road, there are the Long and Short at Palm Valley Golf Club.
The Tuscany Falls Country Club offers 3 courses: Falls, Lakes and Palms.
Near Goodyear, the following golf clubs are within a short driving distance: Cold Water Golf Club in Avondale, the Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park offering 3 courses: Blue, Red and Gold. Also in Litchfield Park, you can play at the public course Falcon Golf Club.
In nearby Buckeye, you will find the Raven Golf Club at Verrado and Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia in Peoria.
The list is endless, you have got to make several trips back to Phoenix to try them, although not all, I'll bet!

We had an awesome vacation while we stayed here! The home was beautiful and comfortable - everything we needed was here! Close to the ball parks we were interested in - Goodyear and Glendale! Easy access to necessities BUT out of the hustle and bustle of being in Phoenix!
You said it, the house is in a quiet neighbourhood with fresh mountain air, yet not too far from the necessities such as groceries, restaurants, and just a few minutes drive from golf and ball parks. It was its unique location in a beautiful community that drew my husband and I to purchase the house some years ago.
Thank you for sharing your experience at our vacation home with the on-line world. I'm happy you had a nice stay last month, my housekeeper and I are thriving to make your vacation as hassle-free as possible.
On the parting note, I would like to thank you for your kindness, patience and consideration from our first telephone conversation through to after your check-out. I appreciate great guests like you and your party and hope that you'd come back again.
Another Great Nascar Weekend
The group had a great time in the Phoenix area this past week. Your home was fantastic with plenty of room for us all. Back yard was very nice in the evenings to just relax after a day at the track.
Thanks you. I am sure you will hear from us again.
I'm glad you and your group enjoyed your stay at my vacation home. I'll be very happy to host you again the next time you come to the valley. I also invite you to give me suggestions on how I can make your Estrella vacation a better one. One question I wanted to ask you "Did you ever stay in the house? :-)" You have left it in impeccable conditions, you and your party were ideal guests, owners like myself can only dream of!
Thank you for treading lightly, I'm looking forward to hearing from you again.
Pictures didn't do it justice
The home is beautiful and fit all of our needs. We were a group of 6 adults and 5 kids and had plenty of space and even had a few more people over for 4th of July and it was great. Only negative was the fan in the living room not working and propane tanks being empty but it wasn't a big inconvience. Thalie responded quickly to all of my emails and text messages. I'd definitely stay at this home again.
It's great that you and your family and friends enjoyed your stay at my house, I'm glad that for my small part I have contributed to the Fourth of July celebration this year.
There was a change in my policy that I no longer provided propane to my Guests, due to the fact that my housekeeper did not (and still doesn't) have a vehicle that could safely transport full propane tanks. My apologies, however, that this was not communicated with you prior to your arrival.
The ceiling fan in the family room was working in February, I will have my handyman check it. Thank you for letting me know that it did not run during your stay.
Last but not least, thank you for the five star review. All the best to you and yours!
Great place with everything you need for a big group!!!
We had a great stay and Thalie the owner was fantastic to work with. It was very spacious with FIVE bedrooms and made it very comfortable for a big group. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend to others!!
Thank you for treading lightly, you guys/gals were a fantastic bunch! Working with you was a breeze, all your requests were made early allowing me plenty of time to handle them with ease. I especially appreciate your clear communication, it really helped me manage the cleaning schedule and other safety matters. I'm happy that you found the house comfortable. Reserving my vacation home for your next Arizona visit is just an email or a phone call away, with a small returning guest discount as a token of my appreciation.
Last but not least, thank you for the positive review.
We again had a wonderful week in this home. Very family friendly. House is immaculate. Owners are awesome. Great communication
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at my vacation home. I'm glad you and family enjoyed your week in the valley of the sun. I credit an immaculate house to my housekeeper, who is one of a kind: very clean, organized and meticulous. She's so professional that she pays attention to the minute details of guests' needs, be it a special item such as the crib or extra bed, or extra linens and paper products when your party is larger, or how she discards towels having a small stain. I appreciate your compliments on the owners; the feeling is mutual, you are the perfect guests that I will welcome back any time.
This was our groups 1st time staying in Thalie's house. This house did not disappoint! We had 9 guys staying at this house and it fit our needs perfectly! Plenty of space for all of us. All the bedrooms were very spacious especially the master bedroom. What attracted us the most was being right on the golf course. We all found it very relaxing to just hang out in the yard watching golfers come thru. Everything you may need for a comfortable stay is all here. My group of guys all want to come back next year for golf and spring training baseball. I highly recommend a stay here!
You've just given us the best compliment a vacation home owner can ask for: you've requested next year's reservation right after your check-out! Thank you for sharing your experience on-line, your feedback certainly helps other travelers in selecting their rental property.
Last but not least, thank you for your frequent contact during your stay, your questions showed that you cared for the vacation home just as it were yours.
Have a great spring, we'll be definitely in touch as you and your party are coming back next March.
