About Dan Gerarden

My name is Dan and I'm a 28 year veteran of the fire department and my family lives in Seattle. We love to retreat away to our very desirable home. We live in the out skirts of Seattle and therefore looked for a vacation home that provided the same convenience to a big city but the natural beauty of the desert. We found it and found a unique location that has so much to offer anytime of year! We enjoy sharing it with others when we can not stay at our home away from home. Our children love the area, community friends, and vacation activities! Whether you’re young or more senior like... Come visit one of the best locations in greater Phoenix!

Dan Gerarden purchased this house in 2011

Why Dan Gerarden chose Goodyear

We carefully picked this safe beautiful location for a vacation home after over a year of looking at all the communities surrounding Phoenix. Our family lives a very active life style and we enjoy having lots of opportunities and options. This is why we retreat away to this friendly, desirable community called Estrella. We looked for a vacation home that provided the same convenience to the city of Phoenix but far enough away to take in the natural beauty of the desert and feel resort like. We found it and would love to share it with you. Our children; love the area, the community, and vacation activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, shopping, baseball (pro & select), soccer (select) and the very desireable climate. Estrella (Stars) has something for everyone and besure to star gaze in the evening as the stars come out so bright! Come visit one of the best locations in the greater Phoenix area.

Spacious and fully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Large lovely home. We had a wonderful time with family staying together. Kitchen fully equipped, spacious, comfortable, clean, plenty of sleeping arrangements, very quiet at end of street, all amenities near by. House has pool/table tennis. This is such a beautiful area and the lake and both resort areas were amazing. Everyone was so friendly. We took many walks, went to multiple baseball games, drove around sight seeing.

Peaceful, quiet, really comfortable, so many stars!

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Estrella Mountain Ranch for 5 years and always prefer staying in this peaceful setting, 1,000 feet above the noise & traffic on the valley floor. Dan & Kim's house is at the end of a cul-de-sac, meaning almost no traffic noise. The inside living area is very comfortable, with 2 really comfortable couches that form an L in front of the surround sound big screen TV, with sound thru a stereo to speakers built into the ceiling. The kitchen is adjacent to the living area, with just about any utensil, cup, bowl or cooking tool available in one of the drawers. All the beds were very comfortable; 3 bedrooms have queen beds, the 4th has 2 twin beds, one firm, one softer. We don't cook when we visit because there are so many excellent take out restaurants just down the hill, as well as an Italian & pizza restaurant 5 minutes from the house. Also 5 minutes away is Oasis Bagels with incredible bagels & house made cream cheese, right next to the Safeway. When sitting in the back yard, it is like camping, so peaceful, whether during the day or while star gazing at night. Dan & Kim's pool guy, Joel, lives in the area & was very helpful, even bringing paperwork needed for the gym & pool at the Starpointe Club. This is a very comfortable, liveable, peaceful house, located above all the noise on the valley floor. Dan & Kim made the house ready on short notice & were available via email & texting to answer any questions very quickly. We will be back!

So glad we didn’t book an hotel. The house was in a perfect location for all of the sights in Phoenix. Also a perfect place for a relaxing day by the pool. House and facilities were all brilliant the owners thought of everything. Would highly recommend
