About Joanne and Tim Wood

We are from a small resort town 1 1/2 hours north of Toronto, Ontario, and love our summers here. After much research we decided on the Phoenix area to purchase a second home to be used as our getaway from the cold winters and to share with our family and friends.

Joanne and Tim Wood purchased this house in 2013

Why Joanne and Tim Wood chose San Tan Valley

We wanted a home in a quiet established neighbourhood that was close to restaurants, shopping, lakes, and all the many amenities.

What makes this house unique

Our main reasons for purchasing this home was its backyard with it's private pool and view fencing. The open concept floor plan with 18' ceilings in the family room makes this home great for family gatherings.

Great Stay at the Casa

  • 5 of 5

Rented the Casa for 7 nights for a week long golf outing. The home was very clean and our party of 8 had no shortage of anything. Plenty of room, nice kitchen, and a spacious backyard with a pool. The home is in a good location with plenty to do in the area. All around great stay for us. Thank you.

Our family (7 adults and 3 grandchildren) were fortunate to have found and rented this house for a week for our family Christmas. We came from SD, MO and TX. Our extremely favorable experience started in April, 2016 when the owner allowed the local manager to show us the property when we were in AZ. The great experience continued into November when the owner allowed us to change the rental dates by a couple days due to a schedule change. The flexibility was and is appreciated. The very positive experience concluded when we arrived to fresh flowers on the kitchen counter. In addition, there were numerous Christmas decorations in the house. While there, we had a couple questions and both the owner and local manager both responded promptly. In conclusion, there were absolutely no disappointments or negatives. THANKS!!!!, Tim.

My family and I stayed at Casa Derrelle in early November for 1 week and we would highly recommend it. We had family from California and Chicago meeting up for a reunion of sorts with our Phoenix family. Tim and Joanne took care of every last detail to make sure it was an awesome stay for all. The heated pool was a plus for everyone especially the children. Beautiful home and very safe neighborhood.

We were quite surprised on how lovely this place was. It was and clean and very spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The house looked great inside and out. The pool was fantastic and the back yard was perfect. The inside decor made you feel right at home. The customer service was top notch. They thought of everything that you may need. Eg..bikes, maps, malls, towns/cites, attractions, games etc. The area was quite and peaceful. Full sun in the back yard all day but there is some shade for those that don't like being in the sun for too long, thank goodness for that pool. A little drive to some of the biggest malls I ever seen. We went to Tombstome AZ. This is a must see for those that like western themes or history buffs. You don't need a lot of money but there's lots to do so plan to spend the day, it's well worth it. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Arizona. If I was to go back to AZ this is the place for me. Thank you Tim for allowing us to stay in your home for the week. We hope to go back.
