Arizona is the Place to Be for Resort Style Living

By: Margie Tolleson

Hitting upon the "perfect" location when it comes to real estate is a bit harder than it may at first sound. The perfect location is such an arbitrary phrase. It's just personal preference when it comes right down to it! Some like it cold, some like it wet, some like it windy, some like it quiet, some like it loud, and some like it hot. So let's talk about those that like it hot; you'll find quite a few of them in Arizona.

Arizona is a southwestern state that joined the union on February 14, 1912. It was the 48th state to do so. It's capital and largest city is Phoenix. Tucson, Mesa, and Glendale follow Phoenix closely in high population numbers. The state is well known for its deserts: the mild winters and dry, hot summers. As of 2006, Arizona pushed Nevada out of the top spot for highest population growth.

Arizona real estate is seen as desirable by many. It's landscapes and horizons are often noted as inspirational and have done their part to attract a large number of new residents in recent years (as well as tourists). Real estate is all about location and if Arizona has anything it's great location! It's one of the four corner states with easy access to: New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares an international border with Mexico. Arizona itself offers residents and visitors alike the Grand Canyon and the South Mountain Preserve as well as several beautiful state parks, national forests and monuments.

The one thing Arizona real estate cannot claim is oceanfront property. George Strait made this quite clear with his hit song beginning, "I've got some ocean front property in Arizona. From my front porch you can see the sea...If you'll buy that I'll throw the golden gate in free." It's quite true that Arizona is never going to be able to offer ocean front property unless some sort of major catastrophe rearranges the map quite a bit, but there is a new addition to the Arizonan resort repertoire that almost changes history. It didn't actually bring the ocean to Arizona, but WestStone Group of Companies is on the verge of releasing a very historically significant resort community in the one of a kind Onyx Tower.

Onyx Tower stands out from the rest. And it's not the sleek, urban design of the 26 story, 1 to 3 bedroom resort condo tower. It's simply the location; the most exclusive location available. In addition to claiming the prime location of Arizona with an even more sought after proximity to Phoenix and the vast amount of cultural and recreational opportunities available in the area, Onyx Tower is in the magical position of claiming "waterfront property" in Arizona. Now that's saying something considering this prime location just happens to be right smack dab in the middle of the Arizona desert.

Resorts are meant to promote relaxation and recreation. And Onyx Tower offers it all: waterfront views & activities, an exclusive sky lounge available to residents and guests, movie theatre, billiards room, fitness center, fireside lounge, infinity edge pool, spa and lap pool and more. The exclusive resort style residences at Onyx claim easy access to: Sky Harbor Airport, ASU, Mill Avenue and downtown Tempe, upscale shopping, and Phoenix's diverse mix. If that doesn't "promote relaxation and recreation" then nothing will!

WestStone Communities' ( takes full advantage of the prime location of Arizona to offer another option for resort style living at its best in their Vantage community. Vantage's Tuscan inspired look and feel is evidence of WestStone Group of Companies' dedication to excellence in resort community living.

Vantage resort style community offers exemplary design that stands out in the seemingly effortless combination of architectural and community planning details. Vantage boasts just as many "extras" as Onyx (minus the waterfront feature, of course), but adds a few "extras" all its own. Vantage residents will find themselves in the most desirable zip code in the area with one of the rare opportunities to own their own view of the Ahwatukee foothills. Vantage has two spas, an outdoor entertaining area, a clubhouse with theatre, a fitness room, and an entertainment lounge. And that's not the end of the impressive list of fabulous extra that Vantage claims. Vantage residents also find themselves backed right up against the South Mountain Preserve with all 16,000 acres worth of recreational opportunities and views that are priceless.

When it comes to the prime location, Arizona is definitely in the running. And when it comes to resort style living, WestStone Communities' Onyx Tower and Vantage are major players that just might knock their competition out of the game. They've definitely ensured that Arizona is one of the "places to be" for resort style living at its finest!
