Overview

Surprise House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 11

From luxurious towels to lounge chairs by the pool, everything is brand new in this 4000 ft2 4 bedroom, 3 bath Spanish style home. When you walk through the door you will notice immediately that great care has been taken to create a getaway that is comfortable, relaxing, luxurious, and worry-free.

Built in 2006, the home offers beautiful architecture, updated color, spacious living, and an inviting atmosphere. There are three separate sitting areas, including a large loft, a family room with a cozy fireplace, and a great room with 20 foot ceilings. The kitchen has everything from gadgets to a griddle, from measuring spoons to a mixer. The master bedroom is over 400 ft2 and has a king sized bed, a sitting area, an extra twin bed, and a private balcony with beautiful views of the White Tank Mountains. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third and fourth bedrooms each have two twin beds.

We have turned the fifth bedroom into a game room for the kids with a futon (that can sleep two if needed), bean bag chairs, an HD TV, a Wii with a variety of games, and a DVD player. The house has wi-fi, DirecTV, another HD TV, a Blue Ray disc player, and a large selection of DVD's.

Perhaps the best part of this magnificent house is right through the back door. There you will find your own private oasis with a heated pool (not heated usually around February due to the cold) and a variety of outdoor furniture and sitting areas. There are inflatable lounge chairs and other pool toys for your use. A built-in outdoor grill, misters on the patio, a 10 foot umbrella, a hammock swing, and an abundance of trees create a resort like feel. The area is softly lit at night to encourage quiet conversation under the beautiful Arizona sky. The neighborhood is quiet and upscale with walking paths and a park just steps away.

Whether you are a sports participant or sports spectator you will find many things to fill your vacation hours. Hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and picnicing are 10 minutes away in the White Tank Mountains. Lake Pleasant, 45 minutes away, offers boating, fishing, jet skiing, hiking and biking in a beautiful desert mountain setting. The Surprise Tennis Complex offers 25 courts for year round play. The Surprise Recreation and Aquatic Center and the Wildlife World Zoo provide hours of family fun right in Surprise; Wet N'Wild Waterpark (a half hour away) also offers something the kids will love. There is no shortage of golf courses here! Within 10 miles there are over 10 golf courses to choose from. Five miles away is Surprise Stadium which hosts baseball spring training for the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers; nine miles away Goodyear Stadium hosts the Mariners and the Padres. The Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Suns, Coyotes all play within 30 minutes of our home. Shopping, spas, salons, movies theatres, and a wide selection of restaurants are minutes away.

We invite you to come and enjoy this beautiful piece of Arizona!

About Judy Halmrast

Having lived in Minnesota nearly all our lives, we are excited to have a place in sunny Arizona to retreat to when the winters grow long. We have created a place not only for ourselves and our children, but a place we are eager to share with others. God has blessed us with this home and has given us a vision for it--providing people with a place to come relax, share precious time away with family and friends, and truly rejuvenate. We also have a place in the mountains of Colorado that provides people a place vastly different than that of Arizona, yet sharing the same experience of retreat, rest and beauty.

Judy Halmrast purchased this house in 2011

Why Judy Halmrast chose Surprise

The Phoenix area has so much to offer! Besides the obvious warm weather year round, the beautiful desert mountains and palm trees, the sports and recreational opportunities are amazing. There is something for everyone here.

Great House In Surprise, AZ

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 11 friends who met at a camp in Iowa in the late 60's/70's. Every year we take an "adventure" trip somewhere in the US. This year we went camping/hiking/kayaking on Lake Powell. We rented Judy's property for the night prior to everyone's departure flights out of Sky Harbor airport. The rental property was exactly as described; it is clean and well maintained. We didn't arrive until 8pm on the first night and then had airline departures starting at 8am the next morning and throughout the day, so we, unfortunately, were not able to take advantage of the outdoor space or any of the activities in the area. We would definitely rent this property again if we are ever back in the area.

Favorite place to stay in AZ

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous. This is our second year in the home - we travel to Surprise, AZ for our NCAA Conference Championship tournament every year. We are comfortable and have tons of space. The pool is warm, and the house is very clean. We love staying at this house! 1000 times better than being at a hotel!

Ladies tennis team attending national championships

  • 4 of 5

11 of us had a nice stay. House was large and clean. Kitchen had all we needed. Meals were eaten around the large dining table. Owner was responsive and easy to communicate with. We'd love to do this again next year.

Excellent Stay in Surprise Arizona

  • 5 of 5

My team mates and I stayed in a lovely home in Surprise Arizona. We were participating in the USTA 55+ Nationals tennis Champships representing New England. The house was 5 miles from the courts. Overall it was a great experience as the home was large enough for each of my players to have there own rooms and personal space. The owner Judy was very accommodating as we extended our stay from 4 days to a week. Compared to the cost of a hotel room this option was less than a third the cost. I would not hesitate to rent this home again in the near future.

Our Private Resort

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this house in August of 2014 as first time renters. We enjoyed it so much we came back again this June. It is a spacious, well maintained, clean home that is well stocked and described accurately.The heated pool is just magnificent and well kept.The area is a quiet upscale community with lots to do. We have hiked the White Tank Mountains, been to the Wildlife World Zoo, Chase Field to see the Diamondbacks and University of Phoenix Stadium to see the Cardinals. Many other day trips in the area with accessible shopping. The owner is pleasant and easy to work with. We will definitely rent this home again.
