House, 3 Bedrooms with 2.5 Baths
About Steve Swerid
My wife Donna and I have vacationed in Arizona for the last 5 years. We currently live in Saskatchewan Canada where the people are friendly and the winters are cold!! We fell in love with the Arizona desert, sunshine, beautiful mountains and wonderful people. We purchased this home to enjoy the Arizona weather, landscape and nature along with all of the attractions in Phoenix with our family and friends now and when we retire.
Steve Swerid purchased this House in 2012
Why Steve Swerid chose North Gateway
We searched extensively for a property that offered everything we were looking for including a peaceful private setting, friendly neighborhood, nature trails, luxury amenities, room to grow with our children and grandchildren, proximity to shopping, fine restaurants, golf and sports. We found it all in Sonoran Foothills. The first time we walked in we knew that this was where we wanted to take off our flip flops beside the pool! It is peaceful, offers luxury amenities and spacious rooms but feels like home. We are only a 15 minutes from boating on beautiful Lake Pleasant, a short 90min drive to Sedona, 20 minutes to the NFL and NHL stadiums and outlet shopping at Tanger Outlets, 15min to Scottsdale and countless golf courses. Our home is so relaxing and offers the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the Arizona sunshine and star lit skies at night.
What makes this House unique
3000 sf bungalow located in the private gated community of Sonoran Foothills with green space and walking paths behind offers privacy and tranquility. The green space beside the house offers young families a play structure and covered picnic area. Across the street and through the security gate is the Sonoran Foothills Community Center offering a huge lap pool, water play park, tennis courts, soccer field, volleyball courts, basketball courts, bbq's, walking and cycling paths and nature paths into the mountains. Our home is warm and inviting the moment you walk through the 8' door and into the large open area. The home features a beautiful fireplace to snuggle up in front of and enjoy a glass of wine or good book. The backyard is so private and peaceful. The only sounds you hear is your favorite music if you so desire through the patio speakers or the sound of birds singing and waterfall in the pool.

Beautiful home and area!
We spent two lovely weeks at this house. Our only complaint was that we couldn’t stay longer. The kitchen was well stocked and the pool was perfect for our younger visitors. Steve was always available for any question that I might have had. We would definitely go back in the future! Also, the amenities (especially for parents with young children were great. A wonderful playground right next door to the property and access to tennis courts, volley ball and a very large swimming pool. Thank you Steve for everything!
Thankyou for very much.
It was very nice having you and your family stay with us. Thankyou for looking after our home. The location of our home and amenities for both couples and families continues to leave our customers impressed and rested after their stay.
Please stay in touch. We would love to have you back
Resort Home in the Sonoran Foothills
Beautiful home in a gated and quiet community that is within driving distance to all areas that are “a must see” in Arizona. The high ceilings, gorgeous furniture and high end appliances and decor made this a first class home. The outdoor kitchen and great BBQ are a natural extension of this spacious home. We enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool after our days touring to Sedona, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Scottsdale and Mesa. Several highlights of our trip included The Verde Canyon Railway Tour, The Pima Air and Space Museum and Airplane Boneyard near Tucson, a Phoenix Coyote and Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Game at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, the Town of Wickenburg and tour of the abandoned gold mining town of Vulture City. This home is like your own private resort. We just loved it. Two weeks just flew by.
Thankyou so much for the review and for taking such good care of our home.

Hi Melissa, Thankyou again for staying with us.
We look forward to having you back.
Perfect in every way!
This home is beautifully decorated, comfortable and is located in a great part of the northern Phoenix area. The furnishings are very comfortable and everything you might need is there. The view from the family room is a treat each time you see it. We found the home an easy drive to the classic auto auctions in Scottsdale on our visit. Steve and Donna were both a pleasure to work with as well. We can highly recommend this lovely home and we definitely plan to return. Thanks Steve and Donna for sharing your beautiful home.
Thankyou very much for your review. It was a pleasure having you and your family at our home.

Really cannot say anything that hasn’t already been said with regards to our home or location. It is a relaxing get away in a beautiful neighbourhood .
You are always welcome back and we will look after you as a repeat guest.
Steve and Donna
Everything we wanted!
This property is fantastic! Great for families or even a girlfriends getaway. We stayed here with our family over the holidays as we have other family that lives nearby. The pool was warm, the sun was shining and there were plenty of activities in the neighborhood for my very active 4 year old.
Overall the house was clean and well appointed for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is nice and quiet but still very close to many amenities.
As a native Arizonan I needed little additional information from Steve, but if needed I know he would have been available to answer any question I had.
If you're looking for a peaceful stay in Arizona outside of the hustle and bustle of Scottsdale, this is a great choice. We will be back ;)
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on your stay. It was so easy having you guys stay with us and you are welcome back anytime. As mentioned several times before, our neighbourhood is one of the best kept secrets in the valley. It offers beautiful homes, parks and green space, Basketball and volleyball courts, tennis and play areas for the kids. It is quiet, safe and literally feet from marked trails and Arizona wildlife as well as Fry's signature market place with deli, bakery and liquor store. Starlit nights provide a perfect backdrop for a fireside drink and visit with family and friends. Love to have you back anytime.
Very enjoyable house!
The house was wonderful appointed and well equiped. The owner was very helpful and worked hard to make our stay a nice one. Would rent again in the future.
Thanks very much for the note and thank you for taking such good care of our home during your stay.
Look forward to having you back.
