San Tan Valley House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom/2 Bath, Golf Cart, In Johnson Ranch

Spend your whole vacation by the pool.....or take our golf cart to the clubhouse for breakfast or dinner, play golf, hike, whatever gives you a quiet relaxing get away. The home with everything you need. We put in King-sized beds in all 3 bedrooms, with high quality mattresses, so there's no need to argue about who gets the Master Bedroom, because everyone gets a King sized bed. A good night sleep is always one of our goals in getting away for some R & R, so we wanted to make sure you will get a good night's sleep as well. The pool and patio is a very relaxing setting to enjoy some peace and solitude while you lounge by the pool to soak up some sun. Or perhaps you'll like to take a nap while floating in the pool on an inflatable. There is a covered patio if you'd prefer to curl up with a good book, or enjoy the morning paper with your coffee, or surf the net on your laptop (wi-fi included) A street legal golf cart that seats 4 is available for your use to whisk around the community, head across the street to the grocery store (and Starbucks), up to the clubhouse for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just a late night cruise around the neighborhood.

About Dave Olson

We are 2 brothers from Seattle who wanted to buy a getaway house to wisk our wives out of the rain and into the warm Arizona sunshine. We spent a year doing some 'research' (and golfing), and finally found the home that fit what we were looking for. Our wives wholeheartedly agreed with our choice, and we think you will too. You may cross paths with us as we spend time at the house monthly!

Dave Olson purchased this house in 2012

Why Dave Olson chose San Tan Valley

It's a great house to getaway for a peaceful relaxing time, play a little golf, dine at some nice restaurants, take a walk, and enjoy some time by the heated pool in the backyard, (which also can be chilled in the summer months). In addition to the 18 Championship golf course, there are community heated pools and hot-tubs, a free 9-hole pitch and putt course, Frisbee golf, a catch and release pond, tennis courts, and the all important Starbucks across the street.

What makes this house unique

A street legal golf cart that seats 4 for your use around the community, a private heated or chilled pool in the backyard, and King sized beds in all 3 bedrooms.

Nice winter getaway

This was a nice vacation home. It met all of our needs and was fairly close to different attractions. The pool area was our favorite part.

Great place to vacation at!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to rent a home that is clean, well stocked with a pool in a gated community then this is the one for you! It is about a 50 minute drive into Phoenix, but the views are worth the drive. My husband and I along with our son, daughter in law and two grandchildren enjoyed the use of the home for 5 days. We loved that each bedroom had a king size bed in it. We used the kitchen to make breakfast every morning and we appreciated that there was a grill so we could grill out. There were plenty of bath and beach towels which we appreciated. We had an issue with the cable and were without TV for 3 days which was frustrating (mostly for the grandchildren), but Dave did his best to try to correct the problem with the company. Unfortunately, the pool heater went out just before our arrival and because of the cooler temps we were only able to use the pool one day (to cool for us adults, but the kids were able to swim). That was disappointing, but we do not blame the owners and they did make things right with us. The golf cart helped to keep the kids entertained as they had so much fun driving (with an adult of course) around the subdivision several times throughout the day.

There are several places to eat and there is a mall about 8 miles or so from Johnson Ranch. We enjoyed spending a day at Superstition Mountain which is about an hour from the home.

It was so hard to leave, but we would definitely rent from the Olson brothers again if we decide to come back to Arizona for spring training. The communication prior to renting and while at the home was great and they do aim to please their guests!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the positive review. We were nervous we might lose our 5 star average with your stay:) We felt terrible that the pool heater went out, and then the cable outage in the area happened. This is very politically incorrect, but your stay reminded me of that line "Well other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?". But I'm glad you put it all in perspective and had a nice time anyway and enjoyed some of the San Tan surroundings.

Great winter reprieve.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home that had everything you need and then some. This was our first trip to the southwest and it could not have been better. The warm weather and daily sunshine made the beautiful swimming pool a real oasis. We really enjoyed the use of the golf cart for golf, riding up to the clubhouse and nearby restaurants and stores. Any questions received quick responses from the Olson brothers and they made the use of their home a real dream. The property is very well maintained and the home well equipped. Very much enjoyed Biosphere 2, Canyon Lake, and Teliesin West to name a few of the attractions. There were plenty of nearby golf courses and they were all beautiful to play. Can't wait to go back.

Thank you Dave and Gordie.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great and the neighbors are friendly! We loved staying at this house. It was very clean, and every bedroom has a king size bed. It was nice having all the amenities of home. We spent a lot of time in the backyard and having the pool was awesome. The location is perfect - close to restaurants and a grocery store.

Loved our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this site for our spring break this year and enjoyed every aspect of it. The pool was perfect for our kids (greatest pool toys ever!) and the temperature was great for us. It cools on hot days and warms on colder days/nights. We hiked everyday, played some golf, and enjoyed driving the golf cart. The clubhouse has a great taco tuesday and the famous San Tan Flats is just a couple miles from your door. The house was very comfortable, had large beds in each room, and Dave and Gordie could not have been more hospitable sharing their home w/ us. We will definitely return!

Wonderful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vacation home from the VRBO site and we were very pleased with how helpful the property owners were. We couldn't have asked for a better location. It was close to grocery stores, restaurants, and entertainment. The pool and the golf cart were definitely a big hit with the family. The house was well stocked and everything was clean. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool and being in the gated community gave us an extra sense of security. When we return to Arizona we will surely be staying here again and would definitely reccommend this to our family and friends. Thank you for making our family vacation a wonderful experience.

Car: not necessary

Situated about 45 minutes south of the Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix, and about 15 minutes south of Gateway airport in Mesa. Nice relaxing getaway location inside gated section of a golf course community, Johnson Ranch, with it's own 18 hole Championship golf course. Numerous local restaurants to choose from, and several other golf courses nearby to expand your options. A safe walking community, with hiking available in nearby San Tan Valley Regional Park.
