About the property

2 Brd, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6, Surrounding yourself with comfort

Enjoy quiet serenity while looking out over the desert in this lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath, newly renovated home located in the gated community of the Peralta Trails development. Peralta Trail backs up to the Superstition Mountains and is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It sits just southeast (approximately 5 miles) of Apache Junction just off of Hwy 60 in the Gold Canyon community.

The home has a wonderful open floor plan on a single level. It offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths (master having a walk-in shower/walk-in closet) with a split living area feel. It has a two-car garage immediately off of the kitchen. Our home decor lends itself to the casual lifestyle of the Southwest, with all new furnishings, well equipped kitchen and tile floors throughout the interior. It has a wonderful back yard; including a play pool, hot tub, view fence, BBQ, and covered patio. There is plenty of wildlife to watch including rabbits, an occasional coyote, quail and hummingbirds. The house faces the east, so the patio has morning sun and afternoon shading.

Enjoy walking/hiking/biking trails just steps away. There is a clubhouse and fitness center with modern exercise equipment and a large gathering area just down the street, as well as a lovely community pool just a few blocks away.

There are plenty of shopping malls close by and we are 30 minutes from the Gateway Airport and 45 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport.

There are five great golf courses within 10 minutes in Gold Canyon with a backdrop of the Superstition Mountains and natural desert terrain. Choose from two Golf Digest four star rated championship courses. Dinosaur Mountain course has been rated the #1 public course in Arizona for two consecutive years.

Thanks for considering us....

About Lori

We are active people who are always looking for new places to explore. After dealing with the wet winters in the Pacific Northwest for years, we decided it was time to find a warmer area to call home in the winter.

Lori purchased this house in 2013

Why Lori chose Arizona

We feel in love with this property right from the start. The view took us in while the pool and open floor plan made it easy for us to decide that this was the place for us. We also love the many outdoor activities the Gold Canyon area has to offer.

Gold Canyon hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time i ever rented a house online. It was very easy. Everytime we contacted the homeowner they always got back to us right away to answer any questions. They were both very friendly and helpful. The caretaker couldn't have been easier or nicer to deal with. We felt the house was very comfortable with everything you need. The backyard was decorated beautifully and the view of the desert / mountains words can't discribe. The only thing we would change is that we would stay longer next time.

We will definitely come back.

Private pool property!

  • 5 of 5

YES! The property is as great as the photos look! It was such a beautifully decorated house located in the most picturesque location. The travel magazine worthy views are right out the back door! We spent many hours sitting on the patio looking across the private pool to the desert in all of its glory. We were also very pleased to all of the nearby hiking trails, and other outdoor activities. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals, including a great grill on the patio. Not only were we able to grill, but then ate our dinner on the patio with the purple sunset as our back drop. Everything was extremely clean. It was like staying at a model home or a private resort. We plan to go back, and to stay here again. Thank you so much!

Arizona Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Lori was very accommodating, quickly responded to my questions. So helpful and responsive, both before the vacation and during.

This is a lovely property in a quiet neighbourhood and close to shopping. It is better than the photos depict! Yes! I'd recommend it. Everything worked well, and was very well labeled with easy to follow instructions. Very clean house. Beds & linens very comfy. This home was very well decorated and comfortable. Thanks again!!!

This rental is an exceptional 'find'. We will be back....
