About the property

Lots of peace and quiet here + great golfing & hiking or just play couchpotato

This 2Br-2Ba rental has everything you need to enjoy the (mostly) warm days and (mostly) mild nights in Green Valley. The kitchen is well equipped for dining four, including a new gas BBQ on the VERY private back patio. The beds are new and comfortable. The flavor of the neighborhood is quiet and the street has very low traffic that serves only the houses in the area. This section, known as "Desert Hills III West", like most of Green Valley, specializes in serving the age group of 55 years and up. You will find there is a lot of activities to keep you busy if you choose to buy a monthly guest pass from the Green Valley Recreation Department. Besides the gym and swimming pools they offer (choose from 13), you can take classes in yoga, bridge, pottery making, woodshop and many more. And needless to say, golf is very popular here.

For the 2017 "Snowbird" season (Jan-Feb,March & April) I have a 90 day minimum stay as I will be out of the area some during that time block and will not be available to check folks in and out during that period.

To lock up your dates I ask for a small booking deposit, and I ask for a $200 refundable security deposit sent in with the final payment 30 days prior to arrival.

WORD OF CAUTION- this website has a "get a price quote" feature that is almost never accurate. Be sure to click on the RATES tab to get the pricing information for this or any VRBO property.

About Jim Apple

We are Jim and Barbara and we live about 5 minutes away from this house. We are retired California transplants who found the weather and slower pace of life very appealing here in Arizona. We stumbled on Green Valley after reading it always rates in the top 10 best places to retire. Reasons for this rating are many, but for us we liked the low cost of living and the way the whole town is designed for the convenience of seniors .

Jim Apple purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Jim Apple chose Arizona

Highlights of this property- the view from the back patio and the privacy it offers- your neighbors cannot see you on the patio, so how you are dressed (or not) is never an issue. This is a total non-smoking property and has always been this way. The neighborhood on this quiet low-traffic street is very well maintained and quiet. And the location- just three blocks away is the huge gym and pool center of Desert Hills...see the very last photo to get an idea of this rec center.

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 week stay! The condo is fully equipped and the owner lives in Green Valley for any needed help. Great view of the mountains from the back patio. A perfect spot for coffee in the morning or a glass or two of wine in the evening. We are both golfers and you have a lot of close choices. We highly recommend the property.

Very comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had many choices to rent and this one just seemed to stand out as far as space, location and price. The owner was very responsive in the rental process and when we had any questions. We only used the bed in the master bedroom and it was very comfortable. The patio is very private and we were able to see many varieties of birds and a few animals. And the view of the Mountains--wow. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc. We suggested to the owner that he purchase a new coffee maker as the one we used was aging. There is a carport with this unit and it was greatly appreciated. Overall a great experience in a very nice neighborhood.

An excellent villa, roomy, clean and a great value

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd winter in Green Valley and 3rd rental. Clearly the best. We liked all aspects of it, had no complaints. We were the first renters for this owner who had just acquired it in excellent shape and a couple of minor items I could fix, a couple of others he will be doing. Wish we could come back next year and use it again. Highly recommend it.
