Featured Neighborhood – Coyote Lakes, Surprise Arizona


Beginning with this month’s All Phoenix Real Estate.com newsletter, I’m going to spotlight one neighborhood at a time. Not subscribed to the newsletter yet? No worries, you can add yourself to the list on our subscription page.

Once upon a time, before Del Webb and a dozen other developers discovered the city of Surprise and expanded north and west, Coyote Lakes was built. It’s creation dates back to ancient times in Surprise terms – all the way back to the (gasp) mid-1990s.

Coyote Lakes consists of 771 houses on Surprise’s far eastern edge, less than a mile down road from the white walls on the west end of Sun City. And it remains one of the Northwest Valley’s best kept secrets.

Coyote Lakes isn’t an active adult community yet feels much like one, with about one-fifth of its owners maintaining primary residences outside Arizona.

Because it’s not an active adult community it doesn’t have some of the amenities you find in this communities such as tennis and pickleball courts, a community center, and the like; it also doesn’t come with the high homeowners’ association dues that bite many a part-time resident. A mere $250 and change a year and you’re covered until the Earth’s next trip around the sun.

In Coyote Lakes, you’re a handful of blocks from the West Valley Art Center and 15 minutes from Arrowhead Towne Center or spring training at either the Peoria Sports Complex (San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners) or the Surprise Recreation Campus (Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers.)

Homes in Coyote Lakes begin in the mid-$100s and golf course lots start not too much higher. Below is a rundown of some of the homes on the market; for more specific information, call me at 602-502-9693 or send me a note on our contact page.

    HI Jonathan,

    I’ve been to Coyote Lakes, and I agree, it’s a very nice little sliver of land. I specifically like to see that the HOA fees are so reasonable. That’s a big deal for a foreigner who’s only going to be there a few or six months a year.

    One thing I’d highlight about CL though is you want to pay attention to where your potential house is vis-a-vis any golf holes behind you. While I don’t recall hitting any houses there, I am pretty sure my son got one. The course is nicely sunken a bit, and it really reduces the golf dangers inherent therein, but there’s still lots of potential in that first 150 yards from the tee boxes. So just go into it with your eye’s wide open. And if you think you’re good – you’ll just put up a screen – well you better make sure the HOA is ok with that.

    Golf netting is allowed by the HOA, but there are dimensions and regulations that apply. It’s a great place to live. The Architectural Committee and the HOA keep our small community standards high so that your property doesn’t lose it’s value. I am a proud 15 year full time resident.
