Near many golf courses. Home was built in 2003.
Quiet neighborhood. Very close to freeway access. Centrally located. On the southern edge of Phoenix, so access to Tucson is convenient as well.
A spring break exchange would provide the opportunity for great golfing, and attending spring training baseball games.
A summer exchange would bring you hot temps, use of the pool, camping & backpacking equipment if you wish to experience the Arizona mountains and/or Grand Canyon, and very cheap golf (if you can stand the heat.) A chance to experience our Arizona monsoon, dust storms and thunderstorms that bring a welcoming drink to the desert.
Driving time from our home to the Grand Canyon (4 hours), Tucson (90 minutes), downtown Phoenix (20-25 minutes), Sedona (a bit over 2 hours), nearest campground in the cooler mountains with pines (90 minutes).
We are a family of 3. We are both about 40, me a community college professor, husband a editor/writer, and our sweet 9 year old daughter.
We are open to many locations. We like cities as well as nature and outdoor activities.
