About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is located in the Rancho El Dorado - “The Duke” Golf Course community. Only 30 minutes from PHX airport.

The backyard has been beautifully landscaped with 900 sq. ft. synthetic grass chipping and putting, green palm trees, 4 varieties of fruit trees, cactus and other plants to give you a resort like atmosphere around the pool (Solar and Hotspot Exchange heated - no guarantee of how warm it will be - mid February was 68 degrees and 80 degrees in early March). Many solar lights and flood lights surround the backyard, but not so much that you cannot see the magnificent beautiful stars. You are also able to putt and chip under the illumination of this lighting. There is a propane BBQ. There is much seating in the backyard, including a six place dining patio set; reclineable loungers with umbrella; and double glider loveseat.

There is plenty of extra space with Living room, Family room, and Den. Additional access to the backyard and pool can be done from the Family room. View of the pool can be seen throughout the house (Kitchen, Dining, Family, and Living room). Full Size Washer and Dryer.

The Master bedroom has a King size Sleigh bed and a full bath with dual sinks, separate shower/tub, and walk in closet. Private access to the pool can be made off of the master bathroom. It also has a 42' LCD HDTV with Blu-ray Player and Cable TV. The other bedrooms include a Queen bed and a Full size Double. A Twin bed is located in the Den; however, there is no privacy.

Watch entertainment on the 42' LCD HDTV and Blu-ray Player and Cable TV. Play video games on the XBOX game console with a selection of available games.

The desktop computer allows you to explore the Internet with Ethernet and Wi-Fi.


We have available 2 sets of Golf Clubs (stiff shaft ) for Free so you won't have to fly a set down.

One of Golf Digest top 100 Golf Courses (Southern Dunes) which was co-designed by Fred Couples and is managed by Troon Golf is less than 10 minutes away. There are over 50 golf courses within 45 minutes!

The Duke Golf Course: Staff have offered to drive us to the intersection of our street and the golf course following a round to allow your spouse to wander off with the vehicle.

About The Owner

We are Owners and Operators of a couple of businesses in Northern British Columbia. We have 4 children (3 boys and a girl). We are looking forward to the day that we will stay in Maricopa all the time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Arizona

We absolutely love Arizona! The weather and the wonderful people! We are looking so forward to our own vacation time down there to get away from the Northern BC winters and for the boys in the family to play at some great golf courses! The girls love to just relax around the pool and shop. Maricopa is a perfect size community where you don't feel that you are jammed up in a sprawling metropolis. We love it there and look forward to retirement!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Beautiful Maricopa Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 wonderful days in Maricopa with our 3 daughters! We are planning on returning in 2 years from now to this home (if it is available) because we had such a comfortable stay! The owner was easy to reach (by text or email) to answer any questions we had but the notes that were provided prior to our trip were very easy to understand and well communicated.

The yard was simply amazing!! We had fresh lemons (in April) off the tree for our drinks when we were relaxing by the beautiful pool. The putting green was so much fun for the family - what a delight!

Our neighborhood and neighbors were so quiet and the community was so clean & beautiful! When we went for walks in the morning or evening, Everyone said "hello"! We felt safe and comfortable in the home and in the community! We can't wait to go back in 2 years!! Thanks so much to the owners for sharing their home with us!

Great backyard

  • 5 of 5

This rancher in a very nice, quiet area that was perfect for us especially as the unheated pool was at a perfect temperature for our use staying in March. The golf putting green was a bit challenging for my handicap though. Ample food shopping nearby (Fry's, Walmart etc) and a good restaurant that you can walk to at the local golf course. The only advice I can think of to offer to the owners (who are great to deal with) is to perhaps have a couple of bikes as the area is great for riding around and enhance the internet speed a bit.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the home and the backyard is my favourite place to be at too! That is a good idea about the bikes - we may look into getting some for the future.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at VRBO 339289 for 6 weeks. The property surpasses its presentation. It is beautifully decorated, very clean and has all the necessary amenities. It sounds strange, but we found the little post-it notes helpful in understanding systems such as the alarm etc.

The solar heated pool was a real bonus and we used it often. The putting green was put to the test, although the results didn't always manifest on the golf course!

The owner was especially generous with his golf equipment and the on-site computer, printer and phone were very helpful for reservations and confirmations. When we had a query, he replied immediately. There is also an excellent information-filled binder on-site and we added all the golf course score cards (minus our scores) that we could find.

We would recommend this property highly, if you are a golfer there are a number of excellent courses in the area, although only two in close proximity. If you enjoy baseball there are numerous games in Phoenix. The immediate area is excellent for cycling and walking. Interesting shopping, hiking, and restaurants are located a little further afield in Chandler and Scottsdale, but there are the requisite supermarkets, pharmacies and a few restaurants within a 5 minute drive. If you run out of reading material check out the local library, a bargain on used books!

Loved it,thanks so much to the owners!
