Welcome to our piece of paradise in Estrella Mountain Ranch! From the minute you step into the side courtyard approaching the main entry, you will realize that you have arrived home. This very well maintained home shows beautifully with designer picked furnishings, two tone paint colours, 18 inch tile in all the right places, lovely carpeting in the bedrooms, and recently painted exterior. We are situated on a corner lot backing onto a manicured park with gazebo and BBQ pit. The streets are quiet, and neighborhood is friendly and well kept. The world class golf course is within walking distance and the lakes nearby with the resort recreation facilities and palm trees are a vacationers delight. Looking for some fun in the spring, just head on down to the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds spring training facilities...only 10 miles from home.
Our home offers a great room floor plan giving you a large open space for entertaining, socializing, and relaxing. The large living, dining, and kitchen areas with 13 foot vaulted ceilings add to the grandness of this open space, and of course, there are plenty of windows to see the sparkling private, heated pool and beautiful backyard. The backyard is an entertainers delight with covered patio, infrared natural gas BBQ, and pool. Sit back on one of the comfy rattan chairs or take in the sun on a lounger. The backyard is for relaxing, playing, and enjoying the weather that Phoenix has to offer. Want to take in a swim at night... no problem. The pool is well lit and adds to the beautiful aura of the evening as you stargaze and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Optional pool heat is also available during the winter months at $25/day.
The home is newly professionally furnished and decorated, with three good sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The Master bedroom is a palace delight with lots of space, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, high quality linens, expansive ensuite with soaker tub, shower, dual vanity sinks, and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, and the third bedroom consists of two twin beds with pillow top mattresses. All bedrooms come with additional linens and towels.
The living room has plenty of seating with a couch and loveseat. Enjoy the 50 inch TV, listen to some music, or just read a book. The dining area has a beautiful wood table with seating for eight. Access to the patio is through 8' sliding doors and security screen doors to keep kids safe from the pool.
The home has a laundry room with sink, washer, and dryer. Kitchen comes with a gas stove, over the range microwave oven/fan, side by side fridge with filtered water and ice, and dishwasher. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. Just bring your food and beverages!

About Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto
We are Canadians living in Vancouver, BC. We love the mountains and outdoors so saw Estrella as that perfect getaway from the rain and snow. We enjoy vacationing at our home in Estrella two to three times a year and our family loves it here. The kids enjoy the private pool, patio, and park that we back on to, and there is never a shortage of memories made with grandparents and family. This is our home away from home.
Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto purchased this House in 2013
Why Anthony and Michelle Ciolfitto chose Estrella Mountain Ranch
We were looking for a resort style community that offers beautiful scenery, palm trees, lakes, mountains, and golf. We wanted amenities to be nearby. Estrella offers it all. This was one of the nicest communities we looked at in all of Phoenix.
What makes this House unique
We were looking for privacy and found it with this home, located on a quiet corner lot with a beautifully manicured park that backs onto our property. We are a walk to the golf course, 10 minute drive to spring training to see the Reds and Indians, 20 minutes to see the Coyotes and Cardinals, and 35 minutes to the airport. There are not many locations in Phoenix that can offer the proximity of all these attractions in a community that feels like you are vacationing in a resort. The minute you drive into Estrella, you will know that you've arrived to somewhere very special!

Loved that the house had such a lovely backyard with a grill and pool. The kids loved it! Plenty of comforts inside and out with wifi and streaming devices already connected. Kitchen was well stocked. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Thank so much for the positive review Lisa. I'm glad you enjoyed the pool with the kids. Hopefully it was a nice relief from the heat! Thanks again for choosing to stay in our home.
Great house with lots of room for 4 of us down here to golf
We would definitely come back
Many nice amenities
The house is a great size and was well equipped with the necessities for our stay. It was very clean and everything was in good working order. We enjoyed the pool a lot and the back yard is very nice bordering a park so that it is quiet and private. There are plenty of lounge chairs and the BBQ is amazing!
I have a couple of suggestions to the owners to improve the experience of their guests. The two queen beds could use new mattresses. They are very soft and squishy and could stand to be updated. New linens with extra deep pocket fitted sheets would also be recommended as the fitted sheets on both beds came undone every time the beds were used. I would also suggest a refresh on some of the towels.
The location of the property is great with a grocery store, gas station, and couple of casual dining restaurants nearby. The little lake in the Estrella Park was a great place for a sunset stroll. We didn’t get a chance to use the members’ club but it looked like a great place to take the family to enjoy swimming, gym, and other activities.
Thank you for the feedback Charlie. We appreciate the kind words about our home and the location. We also feel that Estrella is a great location and we love the privacy of our backyard backing onto the park. Thank you also for letting us know that our house was clean. We rely on guests to share this with us as we have cleaners who turn over our home after guests leave. It's nice to hear that they are doing a good job. I'm sorry the beds were too soft and the sheets kept coming off. We purchased the beds 5 years ago and they are foam pillow top mattresses. Some people love the softer feel of the mattresses, but some prefer something firmer. In the end, it's difficult because people have different mattress preferences and it's hard to please everyone with the firmness of the mattresses. With respect to the sheets, we have multiple sets for use in our linen closet in the master bedroom and I believe there may also be spare sets in the bedroom closets. I know there are deep pocket sheet sets because we bought new ones recently, but perhaps our cleaners put a set on that did not have deep pockets. We will make sure to remove those so that they are not accessible to our cleaners. We also have new towels in our secured closet which we use to replace those that are soiled or starting to look worn. I will speak to the cleaners about replacing them. We will be heading there in November and will go over the linens to ensure that they are in top shape. Thanks for the feedback Charlie and for choosing our home for your vacation.
Very nice home. Clean and everything you need in the kitchen to prepare meals at home. The nights were cool so we paid extra for heating the pool and it was perfect. Sat out on the patio in the evenings and enjoyed the stars. Owners were very accommodating with a few questions we had. Nice neighbors. The house is next to a park and all age kids would come to play when school let out,so at times would be noisy. So,that said, if you don't want to be bothered not for you. Didn't really bother us as it was only for an hour or two and then was dinnertime. It was like home away from home. Thank you Anthony for providing such a nice home.
Thanks for reviewing our property Bonnie and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. We love the neighbourhood, and certainly find it nice to relax on the patio by the pool, particularly when it's time to star gaze! Thanks for the feedback regarding the park. This is the first time anyone has indicated this to us and we've never experienced it being overly noisy with the park behind us. That said, most of our stays have been in March, April, and August, so perhaps it's different at those times of year. We have noticed children playing in the park at times, often after school once they've gone home. We've just seen this as a nice opportunity for kids to get out and play with their friends for an hour or so before heading home for dinner and didn't really think much of it. Thank you very much for taking great care of our home and for making it your home away from home!
Great family getaway
This home was absolutely beautiful! The pool was amazing and so were the owners. Anthony and Michelle were great in checking in with us to see if we needed anything. We had out of town guests who were thrilled to stay in a place that was a "home away from home". Lots of time was spent out in the pool which helped us enjoy the Arizona weather. Neighborhood was quiet and the other than shopping for food we never did have to go anywhere for anything. I recommend this home to anyone visiting the Goodyear-Phoenix area. Shopping is close by and there lots of nice restaurants to try, but if you want a comfy quiet place to relax, then this is the place!!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home Sonia. We love the quiet neighbourhood too and it's great to have amenities nearby. Hopefully, you'll return again one day! Thank you for taking great care of our home during your stay.
Anthony was awesome and very responsive beautiful home in an awesome community
