About Forrest Miller and Christine Jackson
Christine and I have been together since 1990 after a chance meeting at an airport near Calgary, Alberta Canada. After enjoying 10 years in the Northwest Territories and having two children, we relocated to a small acreage southeast of Edmonton and have been there ever since. We enjoy the quiet living on an acreage, but are getting a bit weary of all the work that comes with it. We are both semi-retired; Christine had a successful career as a Chartered Accountant and I have enjoyed life as a commercial pilot flying mostly in the high arctic. We are also empty nesters; our children have finally flown the coop. Our daughter is a hairstylist in Beaumont, AB and our son is attending the University of Alberta in the Engineering faculty. We love camping and plan several trips throughout the summer to BC or Alberta with family and friends. We also spend several weeks each year escaping the Canadian winter at our vacation property in Surprise, AZ
Forrest Miller and Christine Jackson purchased this Bungalow in 2012
Why Forrest Miller and Christine Jackson chose Ashton Ranch
Our three criteria were pool, bungalow and green belt and that is exactly what we found here. Christine loves to soak up the sun, need I say more?? Coming from an acreage, we also value our privacy - this home is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac bordering a green belt with a six-foot privacy fence in the back yard. The home had been completely renovated when we purchased it so everything is new. Surprise is a very friendly and safe community that loves snowbirds and other visitors. And we have some Canadian friends nearby. All-in-all it was the perfect choice for us.
What makes this Bungalow unique
We love relaxing in our backyard – enjoying the pool and the little oasis we’ve tried to create. It’s very private, with several different areas to catch the sun or shade if you prefer. We hope you will enjoy the many beautiful flowering shrubs we have planted, including hibiscus, honeysuckle, jasmine and birds of paradise and of course the magnificent palm trees. You might also see hummingbirds and doves while you are here. You can enjoy fresh rosemary from our little herb garden as you prepare your evening meal on our built-in barbecue, while the landscape lighting provides a peaceful ambiance. If it gets too hot for you, come inside to air conditioning and ceiling fans in every room (except the bathrooms) and enjoy some cool comfort reading a book, watching TV, or surfing the internet, whatever suits your fancy. The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, filtered water and an ice maker. You’re also welcome to use our cruiser bikes for a bit of exercise. For the aviation buffs, you will enjoy F18s and F35s training during the week from the nearby Luke Airforce Base.

Thank you Forrest and Christine once again for opening your home to us. We had a wonderful vacation and look forward to many more visits.
Great place to stay!!
Would definitely stay here again! It had everything and felt like home!!
Feels Like Home
Everything you could want is in and at this home. There is nothing that is not taken care of. The welcome manual will walk you through every possible scenario. Our bed was very comfortable and even though the pool was a chilly 62-64 degrees, we enjoyed our swims...we are Canadian😉
We were close to everything, groceries, shopping, & ballgames. Our trip to the Canyon was an eye opener especially when we ran into snow, but the Canyon itself is something everyone should experience. We reluctantly return northeast to Nova Scotia, Canada but know we will return to this home❤️🙏🏼
Perfect Home, Perfect Location
The home was exactly as advertised. It had everything you need when away from home. We felt very comfortable and it felt like a perfect fit. The owners made sure that should we need anything, to let them know immediately. We did not need anything. They were so easy to work with. The location made it easy to access Spring Training stadiums as well as stores and restaurants. I highly recommend this home.
Outstanding first-time experience with VRBO.
The home is very comfortable and is located in a quiet neighborhood. The backyard offers a peaceful place to enjoy the Arizona sunshine. The kitchen is fully functional in which to create full-course meals. Forrest and Christine were very responsive to questions we had during our stay. We highly recommend this home!
The house was immaculate and updated and modern... the back yard was beautiful. We were so happy we are planning on renting it again later this year .
