About the property

4 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, 1664 Sq. Ft. Home With Mountain Vistas, Natural Arroyos

Situated at the base of Superstition Mountains, and surrounded by the Sonoran Desert, our home provides guests with a pristine desert experience. Our oasis delivers mountain vistas, natural arroyos, spectacular night skies and unique desert landscapes, including Saguaros, the “old men of the desert”.

Located 20 minutes from the Mesa Gateway Airport, and 40 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Habor International Airport, our special desert home is close enough to Phoenix and Tuscon, with convenient access to Hwy 60, but far enough away to allow you to experience the serenity and beauty of the High Sonoran Desert.

We bought our home because of its beautiful location, hiking trails and world class golf courses, but there is so much more to do.

Come and enjoy our fully furnished 4 bedroom/2 bathroom, 1664 sq. foot home, with a 2 car garage, in a gated community. The double lot backyard boasts a sparkling pebble tec pool and water feature. There is a covered patio, dining area and a 6 seat spa. Outdoor dining set for 8, lounge chairs, pool umbrella and propane BBQ are provided.

The house has been newly furnished with comfort in mind, and includes everything our guests would need during their stay. It has marble and solid cherry wood flooring, stainless steel appliances which include: stove with ceramic cook top, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. The split floor plan is perfect for those travelling with family and friends. It comfortably sleeps 8, with a King bed in the Master, and Queen beds in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. There is also a Queen pullout in the 4th bedroom, which also doubles as an entertainment room, including a 50” flat screen television with satellite. A land line, with free long distance calling in the US and Canada, and WIFI, are also provided. The Master bedroom also has a 50” flat screen television, en-suite bathroom with double sink, and a walk in closet. The bay window overlooks the private backyard and pool.

By car, our guests are 4 minutes away from local shopping which includes, groceries, restaurants, espresso bar, banking, post office etc., or 10 minutes away from our outdoor mall, and all the major retailers. For those that like to golf we are just minutes away from world class golf courses; Dinosaur Mountain and Sidewinder, and there are 18 more courses in Gold Canyon and the surrounding area. Also consider making the scenic mountain trip to Tortilla Flats and Canyon Lake, with its waterfront beach, trails and boat rentals.

There is so much to do when you visit Gold Canyon but nothing surpasses the mountain views, desert sunsets and clear starry nights. So come and enjoy the comforts of home while you are away.

House in Gold Canyon, Arizona

  • 5 of 5

This house in Gold Canyon, Arizona was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and then some. The pool was warm enough for my 6 month old Granddaughter to go swimming in, the hot tub was perfect. The house was big enough for 7 people and enough room for a couple of more people. The pantry had a food in it let from other renters, the fridge had soda still in it, cupboard was full of spices, enough dishes. The bedrooms very spacious. A very quiet neighbourhood. A 5 minute drive to most amenities. I will rent this house again. Ric was very easy to work with. I give it a 5 star for sure. Thanks again Ric.

Gorgeous home in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This home had absolutely everything you could want and more!!! Tastefully decorated, very well laid out, comfortable and extremely clean. Every detail in the home has been thoroughly thought out and if you have a question the In Home Manual covered it all!! Or Rick the owner, is easily available by phone. Enjoyed the privacy of our own pool and hot tub after our days of adventures in the desert, mountains, numerous hiking trails, ATVing, horse back riding, golfing, spending it at the picturesque lakes, learning about the diverse history or touring the various towns. There is so much to do that we felt a month wasn't long enough to explore this outstanding state.

We are definitely planning to go back and would highly recommend this home and location to family and friends in a heart beat.

Great house, wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

We (two pre-teens and us parents) thoroughly enjoyed our time at this Desert Escape. The house was absolutely lovely - spotless, spacious, comfortable, and stocked with everything you would find in your own home. The kids particularly enjoyed the pool - I loved the king-size comfy bed! We took advantage of the location and had a ton of fun on our day trips to Gold Field, Canyon Lake, Tortilla Flats and Phoenix. Need to go back to do some hiking!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

The décor was fantastic, the home very spacious, clean, well stocked with bedding, towels, kitchen items, everything you could need.

The hiking at Superstition Mountain was the greatest during the mornings, and star gazing in the backyard at night made the day complete. The hot tub was a wonderful thing to experience after a morning of hiking, or in the evening watching the stars.

Ric the owner was very accommodating and easy to get hold of if we needed anything or had a question about something.

We would recommend this place to one and all.
