Welcome to Estrella Mountain

Luxurious resort-style community catering to a variety of lifestyles

Tucked away in the High Sonoran Desert, Estrella Mountain is an exclusive residential community and Arizona’s most extensive master-planned development. This desert oasis features the perfect mix of ultra-luxurious living, sprawling natural beauty, and endless outdoor recreation. Residents enjoy resort-style amenities such as a championship golf course, a yacht club, an art studio, an indoor pool, and a private beach.

Established in 1988, homes at Estrella Mountain are newer and more spacious. Seven different building companies designed 40 distinct floor plans. They come with up to five bedrooms, and many feature modern accents, intelligent technologies, deluxe master suites, chef’s kitchens, and multi-car garages. There are also several neighborhoods to cater to different lifestyles. The newer Centella community has over 70 acres of lakes, 50 miles of hiking trails, and an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course. Meanwhile, CantaMia caters to residents 55 and older with a year-round calendar of group events and fitness classes.

Local Lifestyle

With so many resident clubs and events throughout the year, Estrella Mountain fosters a close-knit community feel. Everyone is friendly and welcoming; some families have made Estrella their home for several generations. Therefore, neighbors become lifelong friends and often gather together at one of the community centers for events and socialization. 

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

Estrella Mountain is a large and expansive community with dining and shopping conveniently located just moments from its neighborhoods. Lakeside Grill features a club setting and serves American favorites like patty melts and scampi. They also have grilled-to-order dishes like filet mignon, ribeye, and salmon. They boast the best brunches and Bloody Marys in town. The patio overlooking the lake is one of the best places to spend leisure lunches.

Near the Star Tower, Café Bebida is a local favorite for its breakfast burritos and sammies. They also serve savory sandwiches for lunch and handcrafted coffee, teas, fruit smoothies, and Italian gelato all day. The cafe is a great snack stop after hiking, biking, or climbing the Star Tower.

Owned and operated by the same family as the first two, The Cantina at Presidio is a Mexican restaurant with made-from-scratch dishes. Local Estrella resident chef Brenda Williams puts an inspired twist on age-old recipes to deliver a Michelin star-worthy menu. They also have a wide selection of vegetarian options, including vegetarian fajitas, green cheese enchiladas, and bean and cheese chimichangas.

You’ll find a grocery market, a pharmacy, a few other eateries, and several services at Mountain Ranch Marketplace just north of North Lake. Stores and restaurants even offer delivery services for added convenience.

Things to Do

Also right next to North Lake, Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater hosts various events throughout the year. Among the most popular, the Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival is a free concert that draws 8,000 people to Estrella for a day of music, fun, food trucks, and fireworks. It features different genres of music, including country, acoustic, and Afrobeat.

Another much-anticipated event is Ballet Under the Stars, which features classical and contemporary shows from nationally-recognized ballet companies. The annual event attracts thousands of attendees from all over the West Valley. Guests are welcome to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic items.

Exclusive community events for Estrella residents include movies and other music events by the lake. These events have been part of the local lifestyle for years and are great ways for friends and family to gather and enjoy the outdoors and its breathtaking mountain scenery. 

Estrella residents head to Goodyear Ballpark to catch their favorite players during spring training. With 8,000 stadium seats and a 500-seat party deck area, the ballpark and adjoining recreational center draw professional teams to the site every year.
