Ron or Debi Carrington purchased this house in 2010
We knew we loved this place the second we walked through the front door. We have 2 full time rental properties in the area and were thrilled when our realtor found us a home we could use for ourselves. It's quaint and cozy and calms us from our crazy work schedule. The blue skies and warm weather of Arizona are a welcomed break from the windy, wet, west coast of BC. We thought we would be able to spend more time here, but work keeps getting in the way plus we can't bear to be away from our family for very long. Theses are the reasons we are now offering our home as a vacation rental.
We love our little home in the middle of the desert. It has a hint of Spanish Mission architecture, Spanish White washed walls, pottery and unique bits of art. This a casual and welcoming place to be. We love the pool, the sound of the birds, the rustling palms, and the native plants that surround the yard. The cactus, walls of flowering Bougainvillea make Casa Contenta our home away from home. We're situated just 2 blocks from the South Lake where you can take an evening stroll and soak up the magic of the Phoenix sunsets...walk to the shopping mall to pick up your groceries....go for a bike ride or simply enjoy the warmth of the Arizona sun and people. The Golf Club of Estrella is also within walking distance and has fantastic Friday and Saturday night dinners on the club patio. You can dine under the stars, around one of the gas fire pits...it's simply perfect. Phoenix Raceway and Spring Training are only minutes away, while Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Mexico are great day trips or overnighters.
this home is beautifully decorated, the beds are super comfortable and the best part is the pool and backyard make you believe you are in Italy. We will stay here again

We rented this beautiful home for a 3 generation family visit to AZ. Everything was perfect- from the pool water warm enough for everyone to enjoy, to the decor, and closeness to the lake. It was also great having a stroller and pack 'n play available so we didn't have to pack those in or car.
The Casa Contenta was a great location for us to spend the month of January, 2016. The house is equipped with everything we needed, and the surrounding area is peaceful and friendly. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the patio in the sun and found the walking paths (all concrete) around the Estrella Mountain Ranch at Goodyear great for our daily walks. Walking around the lake is great any time of the day and you can venture out to walk around the neighborhoods. The shopping area just up the road is convenient to pick up groceries or grab a snack. The owners were great to work with and took care of a few minor needs upon arrival. Megan was friendly and helpful when needed. We eventually had to leave after our 30-day stay ended, but we had no regrets about the choice to stay at Casa Contenta.
This home is perfect. Everything you need is provided and waiting for you to relax and enjoy. The backyard pool and landscaping is a desert oasis! The interior has designer touches and wonderful tile work throughout. I only wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Debi and Ron for sharing your amazing home.
We enjoyed our time in Goodyear. We have rented in several different areas, but this experience was definitely the best. Estrella Mountain is a beautiful area. The house was wonderful, it had above and beyond everything we needed. Even things for our baby high chair, pack and play, and a stroller. Unfortunately the pool wasn't warm enough, but the outside area was still very enjoyable to hang out in. Debra was more than accommodating, all questions were answered promptly. She was so easy to communicate with.
Spent a relaxing week at Casa Contenta. The home was exactly as advertised. The condition was spotless. There was plenty of living space, a well equipped kitchen, and most important...lots of sunshine. Debi promptly answered our questions before we rented, and made the entire process seamless. We were handy to all of our destinations. The area is very scenic with views of the mountains. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone interested in a Phoenix vacation.
Estrella Mountain Ranch is a laid back resort community featuring a variety of amenities centered by two man made lakes. Amenities include open spaces, parks, lakes where you can rent non power boats and paddle boards at the Marina. Enjoy the Starpointe Residents club gym, library, restaurant, and beautiful community pool overlooking the lake. Play at the Jack Nicklaus Design golf course, hike in the desert trails and bike along the many bike trails in the area for residents only. Shopping is conveniently located at Safeway only minutes away along with independent cafes and restaurants, Walgreens and everything you needed for your vacation. Only 15 minutes away you can see a Spring training game, NASCAR Race or better yet actually drive a NASCAR at the Phoenix Raceway. Take a 2 hour drive to Sedona, the artist community Jerome or head east to the Apache Trail, the road is not for the faint of heart but is a spectacular day trip where you can rent boats and take in the beauty of this mini Grand Canyon. For the real thing take a trip to the Grand Canyon only 4 hours away, this is a must see. You can also take a trip to the white sand beaches of Puerto Penasco Mexico, an easy 3-4 hour drive. There is so much to see and do in the area...just sit back and relax, read a few travel books and plan a great vacation.
