General overview

Custom home with pool, backyard and movie theater in a gated lake community. We are living in one of the sunniest places on Earth, 300 days of sunshine on average. Our desert oasis is awaiting you! Review in French:) Merci à Mirka et Tomasz de nous avoir accueillis dans leur "palais". Idéalement situé dans l'Arizona, leur immense maison se trouve dans une magnifique résidence sécurisée à quelques kilomètres de Phoenix, la capitale de l'Etat et point de départ vers de somptueuses balades comme seul l'Ouest américain peut en offrir aux Européens, peu habitués à ces formidables espaces. Nous avons pu visiter le Grand Canyon, site à couper le souffle, la Death Valley (moins 86 mètres sous le niveau de la mer), Flagstaff et le Sunset Crater Volcano (trop oublié par les guides touristiques), Las Vegas , sa folie et ses lumières, Tucson, Tombstone (OK Corral), Saguaro NP....J'arrête là l'énumération, nous avons vu tellement de choses... Mais revenons quelques instants sur le "Palais Stechly": Nous avons apprécié la taille américaine des pièces, la piscine, les équipements...bref, dans cette maison, tout allie le classicisme européen et la technologie américaine. Nous qui sommes habitués à échanger notre maison pour des séjours en France ou à l'étranger, plaçons la vôtre en position numéro 1 de tous nos échanges. Arriver dans un pays et se retrouver dans une aussi belle demeure est extraordinaire. Mais plus important encore que les lieux, ce sont les propriétaires. Mirka et Tomasz nous ont accueillis avec une grande gentillesse et nous ont ouvert leur univers. Les quelques repas pris en commun ont été pour nous très enrichissants, les conseils et les documents pour les visites nous ont beaucoup apporté, la confiance de nos hôtes envers nous a été totale. Leur "palais" nous a "appartenu" pendant tout notre séjour.

The space

4200 SF (400 sqm) Toscan style Villa, ultra comfortable with 3 bedrooms at your disposal (each bedroom has its own bathroom), large pool in the backyard, media room in the basement. Master bedroom: king bed, Guest room 1: queen bed, Guest room 2: twin converting to full.

Guest access

1 floor, status to basement.

Notes

Our Arizona home is our only residency. I am a high school teacher so I am tied to my school schedule. In March and October we usually sail so our house is empty and available for non sim or Globe exchanges. We can also exchange for long weekends within 5-6 hours driving distance. My 6- week summer break runs from June 1st to July 15th. PLEASE NOTE that Arizona's summers are very hot, with temperatures reaching often 40+C (110+F). We do have pool and three AC units so you will be very comfortable at home but the weather can limit your activities outside. During summer we escape AZ heat and either spend 6 weeks in Europe or we go on the road trip in States/Canada by combining multiple exchange. Due to our specific circumstances (sailing twice a year plus very limited opportunities for exchanging simultaneously in summer due to harsh AZ climate) our preference is for non sim exchanges or globe exchanges. We are open to hospitality exchanges, especially from Australia (planning to spend our 2025 summer there). Please come and visit us, fly into Phoenix, get over jetlag and then go on the road. We will get you oriented before exploring our beautiful Southwest on your own. We have a guest wing with two bedrooms and two bathrooms sitting empty:)

Neighbourhood

One of the best golf courses in western United States is 5 minute from home (Ocotillo Golf Course). Many great trails around the house and in the Valley. There are several great places around us for day trips (Sedona, Tombstone, http://goldfieldghosttown.com/, https://www.nps.gov/sagu/index.htm). Grand Canyon is 5h drive form us. We recommend to spend at least three nights on the road in Northern Arizona and visit Monument Valley and Antelope Canyon as well. We will be happy to help you organize your trip.
