Spend up to a week in a ranch-style home with a pool in the Valley of the Sun. Built in the 1960s, this 4 bedroom/2 bath house is located in a residential neighborhood - close to the airport and multiple freeways for easily getting to your next adventure in Arizona.

Originally owned by the grandparents of a Families Together Juniper, the house has recently been renovated and is normally rented on a monthly basis to those either participating in or attending spring training. Walking distance to a park with a pond and a shaded playground.

As we are making this property available in the low season, please know that the weather will be HOT! But between the pool and the built-in grill and north-facing patio, this house is a haven and perfect spot for a family escape.

Restrictions: Available between May 7 and Aug 1, 2022 only. Stay must be arranged as soon as possible, with at least 2 weeks notice. Only current and former Families Together families, extended family and friends are invited to bid on this item.
