About Susan Formo

We have been coming to sun city since 1972 when our parents bought property here. As guests we brought our young children and enjoyed tennis, golf, rollerskating, swimming in the outdoor pools and using the fitness centers and park. We love the friendliness and positive energy of people on the go in Sun City. We feel fortunate to have found this stunning property with one of the best views on the lake!

Susan Formo purchased this house in 2004

Why Susan Formo chose Arizona

We love this property because of the beautiful lake sunrises, 17 huge palm trees and the privacy. The house is close to the water and secluded from neighbors. We cruise around the lake aboard our quiet electric pontoon boat almost every evening to watch the sunset and greet fellow boaters. The lake is stocked with large mouthed bass, blue gills and catfish so we fish from the boat or the dock. We enjoy our coffee and freshly squeezed juice right at the water's edge at the table near our fruit tree orchard.

What makes this house unique

166 feet of waterfront with a 16' pontoon boat to cruise the lake and a golf cart to explore sun city and play golf on any of our 8 golf courses. The sunrises from the master bedroom and patio are not to be equaled! The house is very comfortable with a large great room and kitchen that are wonderful for entertaining.

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic month in this home! Who doesn't like to sit on the patio and watch glorious sunsets over the water each evening?! The pontoon provides leisurely cruises around the lake and the guys loved using the golf cart to buzz back and forth to the golf course. The accommodations are great and the owners make sure you have an A+ experience. The view is

magnificent!

Owner's Response: Thank you Janet. We're so glad you enjoyed the house and used all the "toys" :). We were delighted to have you and your fun family and loved hearing the laughter from the deck as you regularly entertained and enjoyed the sunsets. We'll see you again! Susan

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our month's stay in this house! The sunsets from the patio were gorgeous and it was so nice to have a pontoon boat and golf cart to enjoy! It is close to all the Recreation Centers and the neighbors were exceptionally friendly. We wished we would have stayed longer and we will definitely be back next year!

We wished we could have stayed longer. The house was comfortable and convenient, the owners (David and Susan) so friendly, and helpful. The views in the morning and evening much to be remembered. The cruises on the lake were fun.

Joy

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. On our arrival everything was perfect.

The house is equipped with everything you'll need. The master suite is large and very comfortable. The views of the sunsets across the lake are spectacular and the large covered patio is a great place to entertain or relax. And of course, the sunsets are even more fun when viewed from your very own pontoon boat. There are many, many different activities in the area. The neighbors are very friendly and the owners are the absolute best. We highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Joy! It was a pleasure having you two in the neighborhood, fun seeing you enjoying cruising the lake on the pontoon boat and a hoot running into you on the golf course. We're delighted you found the house to be not only comfortable but perfectly equipped. We hope we'll see you again!

Couldn't have been happier

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful two months in this home. The home is so comfortable and has everything you could possibly want. The sunsets were absolutely incredible. In the afternoons we really enjoyed cruising around the lake on the little pontoon. We love the quietness of the electric motor. A golf cart just made it more fun to run errands. And again this year we can't say I enough good things about Susan and David and Larry and Jeannie, our neighbors. We were planning to rent again next year but instead we bought a house in the neighborhood. It is a lifestyle that we want to be a part of. Thank you Susan and David.

Fantastic Location, Great Amenities, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We loved taking advantage of the Recreation Center activities - bowling, tennis, miniature golf, paddle boats - and much more. We enjoyed cooking in the extremely well supplied kitchen, the beds were all very comfortable, and the WIFI allowed me to keep up with just a little work back home. I can't say enough about the beautiful sunset views while cruising the lake on the pontoon boat. I hope we are able to return soon and would definitely recommend this home to others!

Our guests are always surprised when they arrive at our desert home and discover we have 166'' of private waterfront surrounded by 17 palm trees on a beautiful lake! The lake is stocked with bass and tilapia and fishing from our pontoon boat is a favorite pastime (only to be rivaled by a happy hour circumnavigation).

We are surrounded by mountains and wildlife (great blue heron, swans, canada geese, ducks, dove, bunnies and hummingbirds).

Sun city is best known for its active adult community with 7 recreation centers and 8 golf courses. Each Rec Center has a a fitness center and swimming pools along with miniature golf, bocci ball, shuffleboard, lawn bowling and a variety of clubs (metal working, woodworking, painting, pottery, jewelry making, computer, bowling, cycling etc.) These facilities are within walking distance or a short drive. As golf carts are legal street vehicles in sun city you will find many people using their golf carts both on and off the golf courses. For $60 you will have full use of all 7 rec centers, hobby clubs and 8 golf courses (plus $27 for greens fee).

There are bike trails along the aqua fria which includes a nice park that makes a great resting place. Arizona is an amazingly diverse and beautiful state. Winter skiing can be found north in flagstaff, or south to Mt. Lemon. Sedona's world renown red rocks and hiking areas should not be missed and you can be at the south rim of the grand canyon in 4 hours. Better yet, take a helicopter tour of both the north and the south rim. Scottsdale with it's museums (the musical instrument museum is a must see), fine dining and shopping is only 35 minutes away.

Many restaurants (italian, thai, mexican, chinese, american), bars and theaters are within 10 minutes of our home.

The Mariners and Padres have spring training at the Peoria sports complex just 10 minutes from our house along with the hockey stadium. The Cardinals and Phoenix Suns games are a 30 minute drive. All this and a wonderfully relaxing home to return to where you can watch the sunset behind the white tank mountains as you cruise around viewpoint lake in the pontoon boat.
