    1. You never have to leave your home in Estrella to experience an exciting resort lifestyle, where you can enjoy endless activities or sit back and take it as easy as you want. Phoenix Magazine recently named Estrella one of the best places to retire in style.

      The Golf Club of Estrella offers challenging play on an award-winning Nicklaus-designed course set against breathtaking views of the Sierra Estrella Mountains. Afterwards, you can relive your game at the Players Grill.

      Get away from it all when you sail, canoe or paddleboat on our two lakes totaling 72 acres or walk along our sandy beach. Where else can you find a lake and a beach in the desert? Hike or bike along miles of trails through the Sonoran landscape. And swim 12 months a year in the outdoor heated lap pool at the Starpointe Residents Club, a busy center with a state of the art fitness facility, meeting spaces, and a café. And if you live in our CantaMia 55+ active adult community, residents enjoy their own private CantaMia Village Center complete with spa, fitness center, indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts and more.

As we searched for a second home, we wanted to belong to a community. That’s why Estrella was the perfect fit, and we knew it the moment we arrived. It just felt right. We love spending the winters outdoors: swimming, golfing, walking, canoeing. And best of all, we’ve already established lasting friendships that we can’t wait to renew each time we come down from Calgary.

We decided on building a new home in Estrella because the cost was relative to the price of a used home. We have a wonderful view of the desert and the mountains, and love the walking and bicycle paths down to the clubhouse. Our favorite thing is the scenery and quietness of the area. Once we can get down from Canada for the whole winter, we look forward to spending more time there.

We bought in Estrella because of its beauty, peacefulness and amenities like tennis courts, bike trails and golf course. We love the mountain views, clean air, wide-open spaces and gorgeous wide-open night sky.  Everywhere we walk, bike or drive, we see the Estrella mountains.  Always in different hues depending on the light shining on them. The Saguaro cacti dot the landscape so beautifully. We’re just so happy to be a part of Estrella.
