About Shannon Dohnel

We our a Ranching/Packing family from Bishop California. We enjoy coming to Surprise with are family for the beautiful weather.

Shannon Dohnel purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Shannon Dohnel chose Arizona

This is the best of both world for us. Since we live in on a ranch we are not use to neighbors. However we enjoy the amenities of Surprise. Restaurants, shopping, movies, golf, tennis and 45 minutes from airport. Also 30 minutes from Cardinals stadium. 15 minutes to Baseball stadium.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This house is next to many acres of open dessert. For hiking, riding bikes, and horse. Also every one loves the pool.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house,

Our search was for a large house, out of the city, and this house was just what we ordered, Clean, spacious, a wonderful pool, Great hikes within a short distance, Lots to see and experience in this part of Az, Very quiet and peaceful location.

We really enjoyed the fully paved deck around the pool, bbque and outdoor experience, all in all a great break from the rain in Seattle.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home -- great location, big, comfortable, open floor plan, beautiful pool. Our girls trip to play tennis went great. The house was just 15 minutes away from the Surprise Tennis Center. The location is nice because it feels like you are out in the desert rather than in town, but it is very quick to get to restaurants, shopping, etc. We highly recommend it and would stay there again!

Nice home in the desert

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great get away from the snow. The home is the furthest north home in Phoenix we could find. We wanted to be able to ride our atvs right from the house which we were. The main trails were about 10 miles north but there are some trails which will get you there.

The owner was very accommodating although a few of our plans changed at the last minute.

The pool was closed due to not giving the home owner enough notice that we would like to use it.

Coming from the cold we lived the warm weather although friends who live locally said it was cold for them. A nice addition would have been a fire pit out by the pool to relax at night by.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

My family recently had the pleasure of staying in this home, and it is truly a home, not a nondescript rental property. It was wonderfully comfortable, and the kitchen was very well equipped. The desert setting is beautiful and peaceful. We felt we were in another world as we watched horses playing in a nearby paddock. My son would love to go back to do some hiking--you can set off for a day hike right from the front door! The owner and the property manager you lives nearby could not have been more kind and welcoming.
