Good idea to check an area you are unfamiliar with first.
There are furnished rentals for one month to winter visitors. You will pay more than the monthly rate for a 1 year rental with winter rates. A furnished rental in the summer for one month will be less.
Surprise is in the Luke Air Force base flight zone, so you will want to consider that. Ask your Realtor to show you the runway map in relation to the home you are considering.
Ask your Realtor to show you all of the seasonal rentals available in a list. They are furnished.

We moved into the Residence Inn (on Bullard Avenue) in Surprise. They had long-term rates that priced less than our mortgage in Washington. This is the newest hotel property in Surprise and is VERY nice. The staff is great and fast became friends. Additionally, the hotel provided excellent breakfasts and served light diners three nights a week. The room had a small kitchen so cooking was not a problem.
IF you are planning to do this during Baseball's Spring Training, the better rates may not be available. This property is the home of the Royals and Rangers during that period.
(We also considered several extended stay hotel a bit outside of the Surprise area. The priices however were higher that the Residence Inn and offered fewer amenities and did not include breakfast or diners.)
While there we looked at a ton of houses. Once of the houses we looked at was listed by a real estate agent who also was an agent for another property at Sun City Grande. He contacted us to determine if we had an interest in renting the furnished house on a daily basis. The rent he was charging was well over what we were paying at the Residence Inn.
We eventually bought a home in Arizona Traditions in Surprise...and we love.
Hope this helps...Dennis
