Our vacation rental home is located in beautiful and scenic Gold Canyon AZ. This home is built on one of the premier lots in Gold Canyon, and boasts incredible views of the Superstition Mountains and Dinosaur Mountain, and overlooks a valley where Dinosaur Mountain Golf Course meanders through. Our home is located on a hill at the end of a quiet cul de sac. Enjoy gorgeous sunrises from the back yard and patio, and sunsets from the front courtyard. See the lighting change the color of the mountains throughout the day!
The home is in a beautiful, quiet community approximately 45 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, and approximately 20 minutes from Mesa Gateway Airport. While you are are away from the busy cities and traffic, you are less than 5 minutes from local shopping, 15 minutes from major retail stores, and 20 minutes from the nearest shopping mall. Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale and many other communities are within a short driving distance. Tucson and Sedona are close enough to make a nice day visit. The golf course choices are many!
Our home has a master suite with king bed, large private bath, and walk in closet. The master suite has a sitting area with windows for enjoying the incredible mountain and golf course views. There is also a small office area in the master bedroom. There are two additional bedrooms, one with a king bed, and the other with a queen bed. All mattresses are new and comfortable. All bedrooms have a television. The two additional bedrooms share a bathroom. The home has a large, fully equipped kitchen, with an informal dining area with windows that again overlook the mountains and golf course views. There is also a formal dining area, fully furnished living area, extra 1/2 bath, large laundry room, 2 car garage, a wonderful backyard with plenty of patio area and furniture, and a front courtyard area also with a patio set. Total interior square footage is 2,400. We also have a set of women's and men's right handed golf clubs available for guest use.
We recently purchased this home, and completely painted and furnished it. New carpeting was installed in all of the bedrooms, and the tile flooring was professionally cleaned. New lighting and hardware fixtures were also installed.
There is a large heated community pool and spa, and the community offers an extensive hiking trail system. We also have added a private spa that is available for guest use.
There is so much to do while visiting the area! Choose from more than 275 golf courses ranging from traditional to desert settings; hiking; museums and art galleries; zoos and botanical gardens; scenic drives; 4 wheeling and off highway vehicle trails; rodeos; shopping; professional sports; old west attractions; many local state and national parks; area casinos; live greyhound racing in Tucson; scenic boat tours on Saguaro and Canyon Lakes; salt water river rafting trips; and many interesting cities and points of interest to plan day trips. In the home you will find several books with area information, we also have available the most recent AZ tourism information from the local Visitor's Center. We hope these will help you with planning during your stay.
Gold Canyon and the surrounding area should have something to offer for all visitors. Or, just relax at your home away from home during your stay!
We hope you will consider our home if you are planning a visit to the Gold Canyon area!
Alan and Kathy Behrens
We live and farm in west central Minnesota. We visited the Mesa area for several years and in 2009 purchased a townhome in Gold Canyon. In 2013 we decided to sell our townhome and purchase a single family, single level home. We loved the mountains and golf courses and incredible views in the Gold Canyon area, and made our decision to purchase our eventual winter retirement home there!
Kathy Behrens purchased this house in 2013
We chose our home in Gold Canyon AZ because of the incredible lot and the beautiful views. The home was everything we wanted in a second home, and we hope those who choose to rent our home will also feel this way.
Our home is located on a hill at the end of a cul de sac, and it is very quiet and secluded there.
