About the Owner

Your hosts, Rick & Carol, are committed to your relaxation and comfort.

'I had the great privelege of ending my work year in the valley every December from 2001 until 2009 and literally fell in love with the desert. Deciding to buy our second home was a natural, easy decision and we couldn't be happier.'

Greetings Carol & Rick

A letter of thanks doesn't truly reflect the benefits and enjoyment Kathleen and I took from our stay at your Arizona home.

It will, however, suffice.

Many thanks for your kindness, and your thoughtfulness in making our stay as thoroughly enjoyable as it was.

The Hot Tub is also cool!

Our visit was just a taste, and it was a fine one at that.

Thank you both,

(Kathleen and) Valdy.

I want to thank Carol and Rick for letting us enjoy their beautiful home. My family could not have been happier. We spent the most relaxing week in the Estrella Mountains. We could not have asked for better accommodations. The hospitality that was provided was more than we could have wished for. Thank you again for providing us terrific family memories and a wonderful week.

From the Owner

Estrella is an absolutely beautiful place to spend time. The resort feel of this community makes leaving almost impossible. Like us, you'll feel rested, relaxed, and recharged... We LOVE all the Golf, the Baseball, the world class Shopping close by, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains. Mostly though, we just love the laid back, relaxed feeling we get from the area.
