CantaMia is a gated, age-restricted community that welcomes homebuyers aged 55+. The development is relatively new in the Goodyear area, as construction began in 2010, yet it is progressing quickly. The 29,000 square-foot clubhouse opened in March 2011 and, upon completion, the community will one day contain 1,700 single-family and attached homes.


The 29,000 square-foot Village Center clubhouse is the heart of activity in CantaMia. This impressive facility features an exciting line-up of amenities and plenty of space for neighbors to mingle and make new friends. The spacious fitness center contains state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, as well as an indoor swimming pool, spa, massage rooms and locker rooms with steam rooms. The aerobics studio offers several fitness classes, such as yoga, Zumba and low-impact aerobics.

The Village Center makes it easy for residents to exercise their minds and creative spirits as well. The arts and crafts studio supports a variety of hobbies, while the demonstration kitchen offers multiple cooking classes. The demonstration kitchen is also used to film a local TV show: What’s Cooking at CantaMia. Other highlights of the Village Center include a technology center, library, billiards, multipurpose rooms, a ballroom, and a cafe.

The Lifelong Learning Center brings in teachers from area colleges to teach classes on many different subjects, such as genealogy, writing, social networking, astronomy, gardening and computers.  


Outdoors, the amenities continue with a heated, resort-style swimming pool surrounded by a spacious sundeck. The grounds also feature pickleball courts, bocce ball courts, and walking trails which wind throughout the community.
