Excellent Stay in a Great Community

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Casa Contenta while on a week long vacation to discover the Goodyear area. The house is wonderful and has every amenity that one could ask for and even some that you'd forget. We love the heat and were very content with turning on the ceiling fans (which are in every room) and opening the windows at night and setting the A/C at 83 degrees during the day in mid-June. The outdoor area in the back of the house was great for enjoying a cup of coffee in the early mornings, for swimming in the late afternoons, and grilling for dinners. In addition to the property, the Estrella community is great. There is a Safeway, Walgreens, Starbucks, etc. about 2 miles away and the neighborhood was always quite and peaceful. The paths around the two lakes are great for morning or evening walks and everyone that we met was very friendly. We had a wonderful time on our vacation and can't wait to return.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Contenta and liked the peaceful Estrella neighbourhood.

Thanks again for staying at our home and we hope you can find the perfect place for your family when you return. We know you will love living here!

My adult children and their wives stayed here for our son's wedding

The house was perfect . The décor in the house was just beautiful and so welcoming and cozy. The pool was very warm and the backyard was stunning. Many hours were spent there enjoying the Arizona sunshine. Several other homes in the area were rented for wedding guests and this one was our favorite. Debi was such a pleasure to deal with and so accommodating for early check in. We would definitely choose to stay here again and to recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Donna,
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was truly a pleasure having your guests stay at Casa Contenta for your son's wedding. Starpointe is in such a stunning location I can only imagine how beautiful the wedding was. You were great to work with as well and thanks again for choosing our home for your guests.

Sweet Dreams on Dreamy Drive

  • 5 of 5
The property was just as listed and the owners were very nice to work with. The house was clean and well maintained although the kitchen was a little dated. My wife and I were very relaxed when at the home, primarily due to a nice ambiance of the house; it just made us feel welcome and at home. Great location, which was about 2 blocks from the lakes and 1/2 mile from the golf course. We thoroughly enjoyed the solar heated pool which also was a nice cost savings by not having to pay additional fees for heating the pool. The grandkids visited us and spent hours in the pool. The backyard was also very nicely landscaped and provided a nice setting for relaxing, barbequing and hanging out by the pool. Close proximity to ball parks and many other activities. We tried to rent the house for next year but it was already taken. Obviously, we would return to this property again.

Owner's Response: Steve and Gloria...thanks for your review! I agree the kitchen is a little dated, but well equipped. We do have plans to renovate in the future, maybe this year if all goes well. We're happy you had time to relax and spend some quality time with your grand children. We personally can't wait to spend more time in Goodyear when we retire...which won't be soon enough.

Dreamy Drive

  • 4 of 5
We spent January and February 2014 on Dreamy Drive and it was a great experience. The home is warm and comfortable, nicely decorated and well equipped. The backyard is beautifully landscaped with a pool, where we spent many enjoyable hours sitting in the sun reading. Two important benefits were being just a block and a half from the Estrella park that features two lakes, where we frequently took our dog, Chester, for a walk. Also, the beautiful Estrella Golf Course is right at the entrance to the neighborhood. Thanks to Debi and Ron for welcoming us into their home and being good hosts.

Goodyear

My husband and I had a great time visiting our 14 month old grandson. Our son and his wife came over to cool off in the pool. The house was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We had trouble cooling the house down when we arrived...so my husband called the owners for help. They gave him the instructions and we had a nice cool house :-)

Owner's Response: I do apologize and thank you for letting us know about how hot is was in the house. We encourage our guests to contact either our on site home watch company with any issues as soon as possible or contact us as you did. We seem to have resolved the air conditioning programming problem and we're glad to hear you had a nice visit with your family, even with the heat in the house on your first day in Goodyear.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Phoenix Sky Harbour at 36 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 9 Miles Nearest Golf : Golf Club Of Estrella at 0.9 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-10 at 10 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Golf Club of Estrella or Taste of Italy at 1.9 Miles Nearest Beach : Puerto Penasco Mexico at 190 Miles Car: necessary

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.

Amenities

From the Owner

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.
