WE LOVED OUR STAY!
November 30, 2014
We would like to comment on our recent stay in Maricopa.Although the weather was a little cooler than the average,and the locals called it winter, we found the temperature to be very comfortable (especially compared to the weather in Ontario at the time). We enjoyed the pool and private facilities at the "village", a very nice touch.
As advertised, we found Maricopa to be a very central location for everything we had planned to visit while we were there. Being so close to the airport allowed us to get a quick start to our vacation.
We found the neighbourhood of the house to be very quiet, and we felt very safe staying there. The neighbours in the area appeared to be very friendly as we strolled through the subdivisions, and along the many walking/ biking paths in the area. Groceries, gas, and other necessities were all within walking distance. Even a new Casino, with a sports center, movie theatre, bowling alley is right around the corner. (The all-you-can-eat buffet was ok also)
There was definitely no shortage of things to do. In one direction, you have Phoenix, and everything it has to offer. We enjoyed taking in an NHL game, the restaurants and bars (especially the Rusty Spur Saloon), and of course, the shopping.
In other directions, are adventures too many to mention. We visited Sedona, which was an amazing experience- one which needs to be on everyone's bucket list. We visited a ghost town/deserted gold mine, went hiking in the desert on marked trails, went for a cruize on The Dolly Paddleboat, where we were privileged to see not one, but two pair of Bald Eagles, and numerous mountain sheep. It was awesome!
Unfortunately, we ran out of time do go golfing, especially when the courses looked so inviting.
The rental house was as good as all the pictures. It is like new, and was very roomy, and well equipped. We felt very much at home there. In fact, we made sure we took some time to relax in the very private large back yard.
Our only regret is that we had not booked more time for our stay in Maricopa.
We will cetainly return
