About the property

Luxurious but so comfortable! Privacy, yet close dining, golf and great hikes!

You'll LOVE the incredible sunsets over the Superstition Mountains!! We sure do! Being one of the few homes that borders state land, you have incredible views, privacy, peace and quiet yet are still only minutes from Gold Canyon, a wonderful city complete with golf courses, spas, restaurants, grocery, horseback riding, banking and coffee houses.

What does it mean to border state land?? It means you can explore, hike, bike straight from the Entrada Del Oro subdivision or bring your ATV's for a bit of adventure. You won't have to drive to get there unless you want to!!! 😃 Two bikes with helmets are available for your use.

There is a pebble tec pool with a tranquil water fall, a piping hot jacuzzi, a pool table room complete with bistro and bar and a fully appointed gourmet kitchen, the heart of the home! You will love the "Great Room" openness and flow from the kitchen to the living/dining areas. From the sink you can enjoy looking out across the pool, into the wide open desert.

The living room offers reclining leather sofas to enjoy watching movies or football games on the 70 inch flat screen or enjoy the beautiful weather on the patio with its multiple entertaining areas including outdoor dining for 6 and a propane BBQ.

Enjoy watching the Road Runners, Quail and other wild life go by under the unique orange and purple Arizona sunsets while soaking in the jacuzzi!!

The upstairs offers an incredible master suite with a king size bed, tub for two, walk in closet, chaise lounge and 50 inch flat screen. The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with luxury bedding, a 50 inch flat screen and is next door to the main bath. You could easily accommodate 2 couples here without running into each other too much.

We also have a bedroom set up as a fun kids room incase you bring the kiddo's, have the grandkids over or enjoy gaming yourself. It comes complete with a full size futon couch with a twin bunk above, 2 game chairs, HD TV, PS4, tons of house games (Monopoly, Chess, UNO, Jenga etc) and a toddler fun box. You will find fun here for ages 2-80!!

We have a fourth bedroom that is set up like an office for two overlooking the gorgeous mountain view!!

The community offers a children's play and picnic areas as well as walking, hiking, biking and ATV/Razor riding trails available just outside your door. Bring some comfortable shoes for walking/hiking and ATV's if you have them!! The garage is yours to store your toys and use while you are here. (Please check into the inexpensive state land access permit needed for state land use ahead of time if you plan to explore, I can send you a link if you can't find there website). We don't have our Razor or ATV's yet but the neighbors access state land right out of the subdivision via the green gates found in various areas throughout Entrada Del Oro. Go exploring!

We would consider allowing you to host a wedding or anniversary event here with prior consent from us and a higher deposit.

We would also consider allowing your pet to accompany you with prior approval and a small, non refundable pet fee that is used for additional cleaning. Please do not bring your pet if they have chewing or potty issues. Also, pease be courteous and pick up after them at the house and around the neighborhood.

Many other area cities are just a 15 - 45 minute drive depending on where you are headed. Apache Junction, Mesa, Gilbert, Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale are all easily accessible.

We hope to see you soon!

Happy Travels,

Kristy and Gary

About Kristy Murrey

Gary and I got married in 2013 so we are still newlyweds :))

We both have grown kids and now have 6 grand kids! We love to travel and explore anytime we get the chance and almost always use VRBO when we travel.

We enjoy entertaining, playing games and having fun which is evident by the atmosphere that we have created at Desert Diamond. We hope that you will care for our home as you would your own and love it here as much as we do!! We have bikes and helmets here for you to use during your visit as well as a professionally kept pool and Jacuzzi!

Why Kristy Murrey chose Entrada Del Oro

This home will impress you with its soaring high ceilings, an awesome layout and incredible privacy and views! That along with the friendly neighbors made us fall in love with it. When we are in town there just isn't enough time to explore all there is to offer... but we are trying ;D

One thing we enjoy is how quiet it is here. Turn off your phone and leave the noise pollution behind... Although, don't be startled by the Coyote calls at night!! They are fun to listen to as well as the lovely bird songs in the morning. It is truly a magical place!!

What makes this house unique

One of the unique benefits is that there are 3 (that we found - there could be more) entrances to state land with in the subdivision where with the inexpensive state permit (approximately $20), you can hike, bike, jeep or ride your ATV's exploring state land right outside the door! There is also many picnic tables and grilling stations in the community areas as well as a play area for children with doggie stations so your pet can go too.

A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. We’ve stayed at a few vacation homes throughout the years, but this was by far the most well-stocked of all of them. Every time we came back to the house during the week we were there, it felt like coming home. The kids and grandparents had a great time too. Clean, comfortable, quiet, good location, and the owner is great to communicate with. Highly recommend!

This was a beautiful house and my husband and I really enjoyed our two weeks here!

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather wasn't warm enough to use the pool, we did enjoy some time sitting around the pool and patio soaking up some sun. After a trip to the grocery store for food, everything else we needed was there!
