Description

~ LOVELY LAKESIDE HOME ~
Longing for warm weather and a water view? Start packing because TEMPE DRIFTWOOD LAKE VIEW in the exciting East Valley has both and you even have a choice in water views. Sit on the back patio and enjoy the spectacular view of pristine Tempe Lake or lounge by the private pool with option to heat at the front of home.

~ CLASSIC COMFORT & LAKE VIEWS ~
Well-appointed, newly remodeled home is lovely both inside and out. The great room has plush leather furniture, a large smart TV, a gas fireplace and lake view. Sliding doors in the great room allow you access to the covered patio in back which fronts the smaller, quieter part of Tempe Lake. A smart TV has been added to this patio for those who choose to combine program viewing with bird watching. Wifi is complimentary.

The kitchen is fully stocked so preparing meals will be convenient and stress-free. Both Keurig and drip coffee makers are ready to brew your favorite gourmet coffee. Stunning views from kitchen windows offer a pleasant distraction for everyone working in the kitchen. The dining area easily seats 6 and also boasts tempting outdoor views. Highchairs are available to rent.

~ SWEET DREAMS in TEMPE ~
The floor plan splits the bedrooms so there is privacy for all. The primary bedroom features a new king bed and has new linens, large closets, a TV with a DVR and doors that access the patio and lake. An adjacent primary bath offers dual vanity sinks and an enclosed tub-shower combo. A hair dryer and soap are supplied.

Bedroom 2 now has a king bed and TV. Bedroom 3 is adjacent to the great room and features a queen-size Murphy bed. Both Bedrooms 2 and 3 have views of the pool and share a full bath with a tub-shower combo. Pack 'N Plays are available to rent.

The dedicated laundry room is outfitted with a washer and dryer and laundry detergent. The two-car garage has room for 2 vehicles as well as your golf clubs.


~ OUTDOOR PARADISE ~
Life gets even better when you step out front to your own private oasis with heated pool and stone deck for lounging poolside. For a more natural setting, the covered patio on the side and back of the home provides enchanting lakefront areas for relaxing and dining. Fish from the backyard and grill your catch of the day on the gas barbecue. Charming porch swing will gently rock you into a blissful state while you review the day's satisfying events and dream of adventures yet to come. Bird watching will both entertain and soothe you.

Two kayaks and gear are supplied for our guests. The larger aspect of Tempe Lake for non-gas boats is a short and easy walk even if you are carrying kayaks.The dock for launching kayaks is just 3 houses away. Binoculars and camera are essential items: lake areas are ideal habitat for local and migrating birds and other wildlife.

~ ADVENTURES AWAIT YOU ~
All of this can be hard to leave but you will not want to miss the many exciting adventures and activities that are just minutes from the neighborhood. Tempe Town Lake, Riverview and Sloan Parks, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Usery Mountain Regional Park and Salt River are popular destinations. Fine dining, shopping, golf, Chicago Cubs spring training, hiking, biking, horseback riding and paddle boarding are just a few of the leisure activities to choose from.

Other nearby treasures include Saguaro National Park, Tonto National Forest, Gilbert Riparian Preserve, Boyce Thompson Arboretum and the Superstition Mountains. Just think, while your friends are shoveling snow in grey and blustery conditions you will be swimming, boating, playing golf, hiking, biking and more, embraced by blue skies and warm sunshine.

This dream come true home with so many extras, so many possibilities, is the perfect escape for couples or families who desire comfortable living, resort amenities and an ideal location. Ask about our early check-in or late check-out which may be options.

The purpose of our trip was for a high school xc meet and the house accomidations were great for our needs. There was a nice grill and the lake across the street was a bonus with the kayaks. Besides the meet, we ended up just having a nice, relaxing 5 nights enjoying family time. There were puzzles and a few games too. When you go out by the lake, you can feed the ducks cut up grapes too."

So many hummingbirds, songbirds and ducks. The only drawbacks we could think of was that we like firm pillows, and boy were the ones in the house soft and fluffy: D the place was clean as a pin and we had a wonderful stay while visiting our daughter and son-in-law. We highly recommend and will look for the same spot if we visit again."

"Loved staying at this beautiful waterfront property in Arizona. Access to kayak and private pool was the selling point. Lots of room for multiple adults/families with everything you could possibly need for entertaining, cooking, and relaxing., Quiet, safe neighborhood and close to lots of restaurants and shopping. I especially enjoyed the close proximity to South mountain hiking area. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the entry code didn’t work even a minute before 4pm…. Don’t bother arriving even a few minutes early unless you have made arrangements with the property manager and paid the fee. Overall i was very pleased and am already thinking about my next trip and would hope to stay at this property again!"

The grill could use some love (a deep clean would help and a new grill brush). Outside of that everything worked well. The kitchen was nicely stocked (no pizza cutter however). There is not a dedicated office area which for our visit would have been nice. I was glad to have access to the garage, especially in August during our visit. Overall, a very good stay."

"We stayed here for a week during the height of the pandemic in April, 2020 and it was a great place to quarantine but still be active. Located in a quiet community called “The Lakes”, the home has access to a series of canals just a two minute walk away. Kayaks are provided so we took advantage of the great weather to paddle around nearly every afternoon. Happy hour on the water! The home also has a nice sized pool for cooling off so we spent a lot of time lounging. When evening rolled around, we would head to the back deck for dinner and to watch some TV outside which was a fun novelty for our boys. The house was the perfect size for the four of us and the garage was big enough to store our mountain bikes when not in use. There are some great dirt trails only 15-20 minutes away at South Mountain and the Usery Mountains. We also rode around the neighborhood on the bike path which goes on for miles. Lots of take-out food options nearby and shopping. We’ll definitely be back!"
