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).

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.

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!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our stay at this house in Estrella. It was beautifully clean and the grounds manicured. We spent all day long in the heated pool. We golfed Troon and the Estrella course the house backs on to. Both exceptional. There were many spices and condiments to use and the Safeway was close for all of our groceries. The outdoor BBQ is where we did most of our dinners. Lovely to have a warming drawer in the kitchen to keep the bread warm while the steaks cooked. We've recommended this to our friends and family. It is as good as it gets!

Golf Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Iris. We were reminded of how beautiful and spacious this home is, inside and out. The ladies enjoyed the heated pool while the guys spent a lot of our time on the golf course. Already thinking about next year. Thanks so much.

Beautiful Relaxing Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over the Christmas holidays. It was such a beautiful spot for our family to relax. We enjoyed the heated pool and the putting green was a bonus. We had plenty of space and then some for the 6 of us (and a baby). We were within 25 minutes to hockey and football and around 30 to downtown Phoenix.

The owner was friendly and helpful and made himself available for any questions or concerns we had. Thanks for making our holidays!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for mentioning that you had lots of space. We love that we can share our house for Christmas family holidays. We have had a few family holidays at The Iris as well. The kitchen is large enough for everyone to help prepare meals which is a great way to spend the evening. It was a pleasure to help you with finding items to rent for the baby also.

Sunny Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! Lots of space for the whole family. The pool was warm, the putting green kept us entertained, and it was beautiful to sit by the fire pit and watch the sun set. We were close to the hockey and football arena and only about 30 minutes from downtown Phoenix. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend the house! Only wish we could have stayed longer!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed review. The putting green in the backyard sure does provide entertainment. Phoenix is a great city to visit. Some cute shops and restaurants. Not a huge busy city but definitely can find some good eateries and entertainment. Please stay longer next time!
