Enjoyed our time at the house

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time in Goodyear. We have rented in several different areas, but this experience was definitely the best. Estrella Mountain is a beautiful area. The house was wonderful, it had above and beyond everything we needed. Even things for our baby high chair, pack and play, and a stroller. Unfortunately the pool wasn't warm enough, but the outside area was still very enjoyable to hang out in. Debra was more than accommodating, all questions were answered promptly. She was so easy to communicate with.

Christmas in the Desert!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a relaxing week at Casa Contenta. The home was exactly as advertised. The condition was spotless. There was plenty of living space, a well equipped kitchen, and most important...lots of sunshine. Debi promptly answered our questions before we rented, and made the entire process seamless. We were handy to all of our destinations. The area is very scenic with views of the mountains. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone interested in a Phoenix vacation.

Our winter break

  • 4 of 5
The house and backyard were very nice. Spacious back yard. Solar heat in pool unfortunately not working very well. Great beds and pillows very nice furniture. Very clean and comfortable. Felt like home. Great location. Biggest setback would have to be the neighbours dogs that barked at everything that made a sound.

Owner's Response: Thanks for you review and letting us know about the dog. We will contact the HOA regarding what course of action we can take. It looks like the solar heat for the pool has been sorted out, I apologize it took so long. Although at the is time of year we can't guarantee how warm the pool will get. We're glad you felt at home in Casa Contenta and hopefully will see you back in the future.

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Contenta and liked the peaceful Estrella neighbourhood. I know it can be hard to stay cool in the desert heat, but you seem to have found a great solution that worked for you. 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!
Warm Regards

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.

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.


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.

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'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.
