Our home

This is our second home and can be available any time of year. It's a 10 year old single-story house with double garage. It is about 2,000 sq, ft. conveniently laid out with a large master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet on one side, guestroom and den on the other with living area in the middle. The dining room (off the large kitchen) overlooks the quiet street in front. The living room looks out onto the covered patio, the 2nd tee of the golf course, and the mountains. The patio faces west for viewing beautiful sunsets across the huge Arizona sky. For cooler nights there is a gas firepit on the patio. There is a barbeque on the patio as well. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms plus den/office with a sofa, to sleep 5. All furniture, appliances and electronics were new with the house. A golf cart is included, (great for short trips around the community). The community pool, tennis courts, gym, etc are a short walk from the house.

Who we are

  1. We are Peggy and Jim, a retired Canadian couple in our late 60's. Jim is an avid golfer, and my interests are photography and gardening. We love to travel and have done so, as much as our jobs (policeman and accountant) allowed. With more time now, we'd like to spend 4 to 6 weeks in one location to get to know it well. Having spent 6 years in the Middle East we chose the desert of Arizona as the center of a new circle of unexplored territory. Now we'd like to venture further afield.

    We are interested in Eastern and Southern Australia, and New Zealand and Europe but are open to all offers and any time of year. We often travel with another couple so would be like at least 2 bedrooms. We've not done a house swap yet but were encouraged by the positive experiences of friends. We promise to answer all inquiries and look forward to viewing your houses online.
