Sun Village Real Estate

Sun Village has a home to fit your budget. There are several options to choose from.

Townhomes: Single-level townhomes are available in the Apache and Arapaho Villages

If you are looking for a carefree lifestyle centered around a low-maintenance home, the single-level townhomes are perfect for you. There are several floor plans to choose from – either one-bedroom/one bath or two-bedroom/two bath – some are furnished. The Homeowners’ Association Condo fees take care of all landscaping and exterior maintenance.

Patio Homes: Detached Patio Homes are available in the Zuni and Pueblo Villages

Patio homes also offer an easy low-maintenance lifestyle, as the HOA covers all front yard landscaping here as well. Patio homeowners in “Zuni Village” – in addition to having access to the Sun Village Recreation Center and all its amenities – have their own centrally located Community Center and pool to enjoy.

Single Family Homes: Regular detached homes are available in the Pima, Hopi, Shawnee, Comanche, and Kiowa Villages.

There is a wide selection of models and sizes of single family homes. Many have the added luxury of a “guest house” or “casita” as we call them here in Arizona.

Most homes for sale at Sun Village have been well-maintained by the owners, but will reflect the styles and finishes of the homes built during the 1990s, so buyers sometimes will want to do a little updating and modernizing.

There is a pet restriction of two pets per household.

Sun Village Golf

The Sun Village golf course is a short 18-hole, 2,019 yard, par 54. If you think that’s too short or too easy, you might change your mind after taking a spin around the course and losing a sleeve or two of balls in all of the water hazards on the back nine! There’s a great review of the course on

The golf course is open to the public with very inexpensive daily green fees and also has various unlimited play passes.

About the Surprise Area

Sun Village is located on Bell Rd, in Surprise, Arizona. At Easy Life Group, we refer to this stretch of Bell Rd as “Retirement Row,” because you’ll find the 55+ retirement communities of Sun City, Sun City West, Sun Village, Sun City Grand, Arizona Traditions, and Sun City Festival, all in a straight line traveling west on Bell Rd from Peoria to Buckeye.

The town of Surprise is located in the far northwest part of the Greater Phoenix area and had always been difficult because it did not have good freeway access, but all of that changed once the new Loop 303 freeway was completed. Now, Surprise is just a short 25-30 minutes to downtown Phoenix, and an easy drive to popular Arizona day-trip destinations like Sedona, Flagstaff, and Prescott.

You’ll find all of your favorite stores and restaurants within a 1-10 minute drive of Sun Village.
