Johnson Ranch - Why stay here?

If you’re active you’ll love Johnson Ranch. There are lots of great amenities. If you desire to simply relax, then this is also the spot!

- This Community is surrounded by an 18 hole Champion Golf Course with reasonable fees; as well, there are more than a dozen additional courses within a thirty minute travel radius. Another option is to use the nine hole executive course at Johnson Ranch to sharpen your short game.

- We have 3 public pools and spas, heated during the winter season.

- There are Tennis Courts, Volley Ball Courts, and Basketball Courts, whichever one courts your fancy. ;)

- Johnson Ranch has several ramadas with Bar-B-Qs for cookouts and picnics. Each ramada has a playground for the children.

- There is a wonderful fishing pond for all the young at heart to see what you can catch and release.

- Terrific hiking at Thompson Park (San Tan Regional Park) is just down the road.

- Biking in this pristine, safe and quiet area is also fun.

Local Site Seeing:

- For just one of many site seeing trips in the area, take a ride up the Apache Trail in Apache Junction, stop at Goldmine Ghost Town for some fun then continue on to Canyon Lake. One of 4 beautiful desert lakes in the area. Go on past Canyon Lake to Historic Tortilla Flats. The main stop on the original Stage Coach Trail (The Apache Trail) coming into Mesa/Phoenix.

- Another outing would be to visit The Olive Mill at Coombs and Rittenhouse. Tour the mill and enjoy a great inexpensive lunch. They have an amazing array of flavored Olive Oils, wines, and gifts.

- Almost directly across the street on Rittenhouse is a wonderful farm. Schnepf Farms is a special place to take the whole family for a nearby outing ... variety of animals to enjoy, playgrounds, u-pick vegetables and fruit, fresh veggie market, bakery and restaurant, and kids of all ages will love riding the train.

About Carolyn Doonan/Martin Ketteringham

We are a couple from British Columbia, Canada. While we love our homeland, we are equally blessed with our new USA home-away-from-home. The sunny weather in Arizona is irresistible, so when we aren't able to be in Arizona we invite you to make our lovely home your home-away-from-home! Enjoy!

Carolyn Doonan/Martin Ketteringham purchased this house in 2011

Why Carolyn Doonan/Martin Ketteringham chose Arizona

Our home is located in a beautiful golfing community. The area is quiet, clean and safe. It is surrounded by mountain ranges and cotton fields. As hikers and runners we appreciate all that the area has to offer. Johnson Ranch is a taste of country life within mere minutes of plentiful shopping, restaurants and attractions. It is the perfect location for a marvellous get-away.

What makes this house unique

The moment we walked through the door we knew that this was the home for us! We love the openness of our home, the fact that it is all on one level and that there is lovely light shining through the many windows. The well manicured green spaces and flowers within the community add to its charm. The playground at the end of the street, the pools and hot tubs, racquet courts, fishing pond, etc, are all available for added fun and relaxation.

Very comfortable home in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this home for 2 weeks in January 2017. House is well appointed with comfortable furnishings in all living areas. Kitchen is generously supplied. Neighborhood is very walkable and bike paths on most streets. Easy walk to the community pool. We also hiked at San Tan Mountain Regional Park - about a 15 minute drive away. Close to supermarkets and other shopping. Yoga in one of the community parks two mornings a week.

San Tan Solitude

  • 5 of 5

We found the property very clean, with an open and inviting floor plan

Everything we needed was provided for a peaceful and relaxing stay.

Shopping, pools and pickleball/tennis courts were just a short bike ride away

Will definitely go back there again.

Thanks Martin and Carolyn for sharing your lovely home!

Enjoyed stay in Phoenix area

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us in San Tan Valley. We enjoyed the neighborhood and access to the HOA pool. Your manager was kind, knowledgeable, and took care of a problem immediately. My only recommendation would be to replace the air mattress beds with regular box springs and mattress. They were a little uncomfortable for our children and grandchildren when visiting for a week. We definitely enjoyed the home and vacation in sunny, warm Phoenix area.

Spacious Home in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February 2016 in this home. The kitchen is large and includes an island; great for cooking. Two grocery stores are nearby. Nice dining room table for playing games or working jigsaw puzzles. Although Johnson Ranch is a large subdivision, it is very quiet. We would sit outside on the patio to enjoy the blue skies and warm weather and watch the hummingbirds. Even had a roadrunner run by one afternoon. You can easily get a 6 mile walk in every day on the sidewalks as they wind through the entire subdivision; just don't get lost! Master bed was very comfortable, and there was a double sink in the master bathroom. We had a couple minor problems during our stay that were not addressed such as: dishwasher soap would not dispense during cycle and garage door opener wasn't programmed, but nothing that stopped us from making the most of our time in Arizona.

We really enjoyed this spacious home. The home was very clean and the kitchen was great. Master bedroom was also great! The kids liked having there own room and didn't mind the air beds. The backyard needs landscaping, but we spent our time at the heated community pool which was close to the home. There is also a number of parks close by.

San Tan Valley - Johnson Ranch Rental

  • 5 of 5

The home was in a fabulous area with many parks and 3 pools. We enjoyed utilizing the amenities the HOA had to offer. The home was large and well stocked with all the essentials we needed to prepare meals at home. It was also really nice to have laundry in the home - especially with a family. I would recommend you bring your own beach towels as there are not any in the home. The guest rooms did have air beds, as noted in the listing, which may be a negative for some but the home was great for our family. The king bed in the master was extremely comfortable!! The weather is fabulous and the people in the community were very friendly! There are many things to do and take in in the surrounding area and is located with easy access to major roadways that make driving convenient. The owners were fabulous to deal with and were always available if we needed to get a hold of them for assistance!
