4 Bedroom 3000 sqft Single Story House with beautiful relaxing backyard

The professionally landscaped backyard boasts a heated swimming pool, a chipping and putting green, remote control awnings, two large marketplace umbrellas, and a professional misting system surrounding the semi-enclosed patio furnished for outdoor eating.

In the evenings, take advantage of the built-in Beefeater BBQ with serving counter which flows into a comfortable seating area in front of an outdoor gas fireplace.

Inside, the 3000 sq. ft. home is all one level and offers four bedrooms with two queen beds, one king bed and one double bed (with child bunk on top). A fully furnished kitchen with a large island will allow for easy meal preparation and a convenient wine fridge will keep your refreshments cool. The kitchen is furnished with top of the line S/S appliances including a gas cook-top, built in wall oven, convection/microwave oven, dishwasher and large refrigerator with ice-maker and water dispenser. It is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery, toaster, coffee maker, hand mixer, pots & pans, dish soap, and garbage bags.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, a huge walk-in closet and separate door to patio and pool. The master bath has double sinks, a sunken tub and separate walk in shower with three separate shower heads. Queen size beds are available in in two other bedrooms, and a final special bedroom boasts a beautiful hand painted mural on the wall with a double/single bunk bed combo; this room will appeal to younger guests. Two bathrooms serve these rooms, one which is a full bathroom which includes a double sink and shower.

A relaxing living room features three large picture windows that look out onto the backyard and onto the golf course beyond. Depending on the time of year, sunsets are spectacular as the sun sinks into the horizon framed by the hills beyond. A full size dining room table will enable comfortable family meals in the evenings.

For your entertainment pleasure the family room has an oversized sectional to relax on while watching the 55" LCD TV with basic cable access. The Blue Ray DVD player can play Blue Ray and standard DVDs, and will play a huge variety of movies and TV shows from our linked Netflix account. Attach your iPhone/iPod/iPad into the stereo receiver and enjoy your music throughout the house and on the enclosed patio though ceiling mounted speakers. For those who enjoy video games, there is also a Wii attached with some games available. Free WiFi internet access is available throughout the house.

The Estrella community also offers so many casual activities as walking and biking on well-marked trails. Enjoy the use of two house bikes to tour around this beautiful area. The community also boasts two modest style lakes of which catch-and-release fishing is allowed. The Sonoran Mountains in the 19,000 acre Estrella Regional Park next door is ideally suited for nature lovers and hikers. Within the community, you will find an outstanding grocery store (Safeway), along with amenities such as Starbucks, Papa-Johns Pizza, and a Subway.

Just 15 minute drive up the road into Goodyear is the spring training facility for the Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Indians. For Nascar fans the Phoenix International raceway is nearby.

About Glenn Moore

We live in Toronto, Ontario Canada and love the southwest. My wife and I have active careers that keep us busy. We look forward to retiring in the next few years.

Glenn Moore purchased this house in 2012

Why Glenn Moore chose Goodyear

We did not buy his house with the initial intent to rent; we purchased the house as a second home and maybe one day a retirement house. Therefore we have put a lot of effort into making it a home rather than just a house.

When we were searching, many recommendations pointed to Estrella and we fell in love with the peaceful community when we first visited. When we saw this property, we knew right then and there that this was the house for us.

What makes this house unique

Located in a quiet gated community, we were drawn to the backyard which overlooks the Golf Club of Estrella and sports beautiful sunsets. The layout of the house and the views just seem to evaporate stress. The backyard sports a heated pool, an outdoor fireplace, and a small practice chipping and putting green.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Iris was a great place to stay - easy to get to location, a lovely well-equipped home, quiet surroundings in nature with golf-course view, enjoyable swimming pool and putting-green, close amenities. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation and hope to do it again soon!

We spent a wonderful, memorable month of March with family & friends at The Iris. The home is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. Although we were at spring baseball games most days, we will all remember relaxing in the backyard and having great conversations around the fireplace. The morning was also a special time to enjoy the backyard - we even had roadrunners walking on top of the wall. The owners were extremely responsive to any questions we had. The Iris exceeded our expectations!

Fantastic House and Friendly Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stay in the Phoenix area several times a year using VRBO or HomeAway, and I will say this house is at the top of the list. The house was large and spacious, very clean, and well-managed. It's a VERY nice house! My kids loved swimming in the pool. The putting green was fun, and the outside fireplace made for a nice environment to sit around in the evenings. The neighborhood was very safe and we took walks or runs in the evenings. A grocery store was conveniently located just a few miles away, which we used almost daily.

Additionally, the owner was very helpful, responsive, and friendly. I can tell he cares a lot for his house, but I also felt he cared for us and wanted us to have an enjoyable stay, which we did.

I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone else!

Fabulous home with gorgeous backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We just left our 6 night stay in Phoenix and wish we could have stayed longer! The house is one of the best we've rented (and we've rented quite a few). It is spacious, well maintained and furnished. It has everything you could need! It's so nice to stay at a house that feels like a home when you walk in. And we didn't need to buy little things, like paper towels, garbage bags, laundry detergent etc. It seems that the folks who rent pay it forward by leaving behind useful items they weren't taking with them, like coffee k-cups, ketchup, etc. There were also plenty of beach towels. The backyard was amazing. We loved the pool, putting green and fireplace! The house is an easy drive to Camelback Ranch where we enjoyed watching the White Sox play. The owner was great... easy to work with, offered advice or recommendations if we needed them. Responded to our questions right away. Can't say enough about this house! It was fantastic and we'd absolutely stay again!

The " Iris" is a beautiful home inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great experience at the Iris. There was an abundance of towels, extra pillows and linens and everything you might need in the kitchen . Estrella golf course is wonderful as is nearby Tres Rios. We loved gathering around the outdoor fireplace and reviewing our eventful days! Great home base for golf, spring training, Grand Canyon trip and Sedona. Thanks for the memories!
