A Private Retreat For Two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a relaxing week in the Ahwatukee Foothills and enjoyed our stay in this clean, quiet, safe, secure, and conveniently located home in a gated community. This is our fourth visit to the area because we enjoy the peacefulness and mountain views in almost any direction. There also isn't a lot of traffic in the area, which is especially nice for us as we come from a noisy city in the Northeast. When we travel, we also prefer the privacy of a backyard pool, and this one was just steps away from our bed...perfect for a refreshing morning swim! There is a community pool as well, which we did not use, but we did visit the community area to watch the sun set over the lake and mountains. Eating healthy when we travel is a must and we had everything we needed to prepare our meals in the pristine kitchen. The closet grocery store is within walking distance (although we drove), which was super convenient. We also enjoyed going for morning walks and runs in the neighborhood, and even discovered a park close by that we never noticed on any previous visits to AZ. For those who like to eat out, there are several restaurants within walking distance. My favorite restaurant is about a ten minute drive, and specializes in organic, vegan meals but also has some gluten free and vegetarian options too. It's called "Pomegranate" if you want to check it out. If you love to be active, definitely check out South Mountain Preserve too. It's one of the largest municipal parks in the country and it's a short drive away (bring lots of water). We slept in the bedroom on the main level and we slept well. The bed was comfortable and the texture of all of the bedding felt good. The shower was an experience too! It's spacious, the tile work is beautiful, and it was a treat to see the sky and clouds when looking up at the high windows. Lastly, the owners of this property are very attentive and responsive. It is obvious that they take good care of their guests and the property. We would definitely consider returning for another week, and would refer this property to our friends and family.

Dessert Oasis Home

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the beauty of Awhatukee. This property had a nice privacy pool (a must in AZ) in the yard with a gas grill and a view of South Mountain. There is a larger community pool if you have a large group. The house is updated, clean and well airconditioned (important). There is a two car garage that protects your vehicle(s) from the intense AZ sun.

Even coming in July (not a popular time to visit) my family was comfortable and enjoyed their stay. There is hiking, horseback riding, shopping and easy access to Pheonix. Awhatukee is clean and well maintained by the city. We highly recommend property for couples or families needing a house in the Phoenix area.

Ahwatukee is a great location and offers the amazing opportunity to be close to the mountains as well as to many attractions while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the desert. Please do come back to visit and consider us for a longer stay the next time around. Greg & Lili

Clean, comfortable nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable and nicely decorated, this home was just as described! We arrived February 1 and stayed two and a half months in this lovely vacation home - wished we had booked for longer. It is beautifully decorated, modern, located in a quiet gated community, with fantastic mountain views. It was everything we hoped for. Fully equipped with everything you need, comfortable beds, great TV entertainment, lovely private pool and the feeling that you are in your own home. We cooked on the BBQ, entertained on the patio and used the community pool and Jacuzzi. Best of all owners Greg and Lilian could not do enough for us. Greg prepared a binder for us containing everything we needed to know including best restaurants and ones nearby which was very helpful. He identified all the great golf courses for us too which was much appreciated and used. Lilian seemed seconds away, responding electronically, to any question or request.

Loved our stay and would definitely stay again! Don and Linda

From the Owner

Back in 2008 when we first discovered Ahwatukee we never thought we would be able to own such a wonderful little piece of heaven. Not to big and not to small for our little 3 person family. When we first saw the property amidst all its wild scene we saw a diamond in the rough. We bought it, loved it, polished it and now ready for y'all to enjoy!

Nearest Airport : Sky Harbor International at 17.5 Miles Nearest Barpub : Loco Patron at 0.8 Miles Nearest Golf : Foothills Golf Club at 1.7 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak Train Station Maricopa City at 25 Miles Nearest Motorway : Speedway Raceway at 18.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Loco Patron at 0.8 Miles Nearest Ski : Flagstaff at 166.1 Miles Nearest Beach : San Diego at 351.3 Miles

During your stay you can make it as busy or as laid back as you'd like. We are minutes away from the local night life, casinos, restaurants and sporting events. Yet nestled back enough that it lends itself to a quiet night of constellation watching in the back yard while enjoying your private pool area.

From the Owner

It allows us to come in after a busy day of golfing, hiking and biking pop open a bottle of wine, throw something on the grill and enjoy life in our little private sanctuary we call our back yard. With the calm water falling and soft tunes in the background and people who love you ..... life doesn't get any better.
