Rental Homes Unveiled at Rocking K

Build-to-rent communities are the newest housing option in cities across the country that are giving renters an alternative to apartment living. MODERNE at Rocking K in Vail is one of the first rental home communities in Southern Arizona. The gated neighborhood of 224 single-story, single-family homes for rent is situated on 17.1 acres within the Rocking K masterplan community. The property is surrounded in perpetuity by lush native desert landscaping with sweeping views of the Rincon Mountains. The leasing office opened in December and its first residents are moving in.

Developer, Randy Bury states, “We are excited to introduce build-to-rent living to Vail and welcome our first residents. Rocking K is a beautiful masterplan community with the backdrop of the Rincon Mountains and nearby Saguaro National Park. We offer an opportunity to lease a single-story home and experience the masterplan lifestyle. Moderne at Rocking K gives residents the privacy of a home, an abundance of amenities and the connections of living in a community.”

MODERNE at Rocking K features a choice of one-, two-, and three-bedroom single-story floor plans. Each home includes a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, an open living area for entertaining, laundry, spacious storage and a private backyard with doggy door access. Detached garages and covered parking are available as well. Community amenities include a beach entry resort-style pool and spa, fitness center, pickleball court, pocket parks with outdoor seating, resident lounge and barbecue and fire pit areas.

“People love how peaceful it is here with the breathtaking mountain views and open space,” states Sami Arias, community manager for Moderne at Rocking K. “They also love our 9-foot ceilings, private yards and doggy doors.”


In January, the leasing office hosted a soft opening event with refreshments. In mid-March, MODERNE at Rocking K will host a grand opening that will be open to the public. The event will include food, drinks, live music and community tours.

“We are meeting potential residents coming to tour the models that are from out of state moving to the Vail for jobs or they are looking to move out of the city areas to live and enjoy a more rural area of Southern Arizona,” adds Arias. “They love that they can rent a home with all the amenities and access to the community parks.”


Thursday evening, February 29, Randy Bury is scheduled to speak at The Vail Innovation Center where he will share more on the development of MODERNE at Rocking K and the growth of the build-to-rent housing trend.
