You may want to look at the Power Ranch Community in Gilbert. There are rentals in this planned community with pools, lakes, greenbelts etc. This community is more for families starting out with both affordable housing as well as accomplished schools.
I currently have 2 houses available in Gilbert that may fit your needs. One is brand new, never lived in 3 bed/2.5 bath with an open loft area and community pool. The other is a 3 bed/2 bath plus den with community pool. Both in great neighborhoods within your price range.. Property details, visual tours, photos can be seen at:
If you like either of these let me know.

Would love to find that home for you. I've been selling and buying in Gilbert for over 20 yrs so I know the neighborhoods quite well. Please call me or send me your email. I will send you up to date listings of everything available. I need to know what price range you want, pool or no pool, school district or anything else that's important to you. I'll make it happen! I personally visit each home and can send video if you like on the ones you choose. I'll negotiate with landlord. Let me do all the work. Stay warm in Boston, relax and I'll keep you posted. Thank you for contacting me.
