A 60 something couple from Kalamazoo, Michigan. We live in Sun City Arizona and have really enjoyed it the past 5 years. We bought our vacation rental we call "Hitching Post" (because of the street it is on) a few years ago as well. It's just a mile from our house and is nestled between 2 of the Sun City Recreation Centers. (There are 7 Sun City Rec Centers in all offering literally any activity, sport, hobby, or event you could name.) These are all within about a 10 mile radius located in the west valley of the Phoenix area.
When we searched for our first property in Arizona, we stayed in an Airbnb property while looking and found that it worked so well for us! It felt so much more "homey" that a motel room for a similar price.
Our goal is to provide a safe, clean and comfortable home with all the conveniences you need for some great leisure activities. We know a pet is often an important part of a family so we welcome yours as long as truly well housebroken and well-behaved.
Come enjoy this safe, walkable and bike rideable neighborhood and see why we and thousands of others have fallen in love with the Arizona sunsets, the "Wild West", and Sun City!
Our motto: Life is a Gift - Open It. We hope to see you soon!
