Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Purple Quail offers affordable accommodations in a nice neighborhood near the high school and recreation dept. facilities. This neatly appointed space is perfect for a couple out exploring the area, who want the ammenities to cook simple meals in and use of a pool and outdoor sitting area. Kelly and Milt aim to meet your every need and offer suggestions if needed because they are active themselves. The space adjoins their private home with separate entrance. We enjoyed being away from town and close enough to make a quick trip to the fountain.

Awesome Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent February and March, 2015, at The Purple Quail. The listing description was very accurate. The property was well maintained. Kelly and Milton were excellent, friendly hosts. The "Quail" is located in a very quiet neighborhood, but only a short drive into the Town Center of Fountain Hills. The neighborhood provides some comfortable walking areas....some flat, some challenging, hilly residential streets. The welcoming breakfast the first morning was wonderful, but our highest kudos go to the quiet area! We also liked liked not having to haul a bag loaded with books, towels, and lotion across a condo complex, only to find the pool area is overcrowded! At the "Quail", you walk out the door and you're at the pool. We would highly recommend this spot to friends, but not for February and March of 2016, because we will be back again!

Owner's Response: A great reason to live in Fountain Hills is the quiet seclusion from the noise of the big city, yet close enough to meet all your needs. We love having repeat guests too!

We really enjoyed our 4 weeks at the Purple Quail

  • 5 of 5

Gracious friendly hosts, clean and comfortable apartment, quiet neighborhood, delicious warm scones on first morning, attractive back patio and pool, we used the gas grill, short distance to great walking trails, played tennis nearby, convenient for visiting family in Scottsdale, great roll-top desk made our "office" work easy, nicely decorated, and loved the new washer and dryer. Everything was exactly as shown in the listing. Very pleasant stay!

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A great all season getaway stay, even in the summer! The rooms were spacious, clean, and loaded with amenities. Outdoor pool and eating areas were also a plus. The owners were friendly and helpful, even providing homemade lemon bars from the fruit of their tree; yogurt; and other fruits of our choice for breakfast on our first morning. We would recommend The Purple Quail to family and friends without hesitation. A thoroughly enjoyable stay!

Owner's Response: The Sonoran desert is beautiful even in the summer if you know where to look. Citrus grows in abundance here. We love to treat our guests to special goodies.

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, pleasant surroundings in this pet friendly home. Owners were very accommodating and helpful, and the apartment is nicely furnished and immaculate. We loved the private patio off our living space, and our Bichon was in doggy heaven with the patio/back yard where she had freedom to roam without getting out. Comfortable queen bed and bedroom with a great walk-in closet. We stayed for a month and would definitely return. A little out of the hustle-bustle of Phoenix, this would be great for bike/desert hikers. We highly recommend the 90 minute tour at nearby Taliesin West, winter home and school of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Owner's Response: One of the reasons to stay in Fountain Hills is to experience the real beauty of the great Southwest. Here in Fountain Hills you will be able to enjoy a safe, quiet community, and wildlife, mountain vistas and nature. Yet, we are close to all of the sightseeing and activities of Phoenix, Scottsdale and beyond. And, since we have lived here 20 years, we can recommend just about anything you are interested in trying!

Loved our stay at the Purple Quail

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise! We've never rented through Vacation Rentals before, but sure are glad we found the Purple Quail. Our stay was excellent, everything was absolutely perfect. The small touches the owners used made us feel most welcome and very comfortable. The owners were excellent hosts and went above & beyond to make every aspect of our stay a pleasurable one. Everything was extremely clean and well taken care of. The basket with fresh food on the morning after our arrival was the perfect way to start our first day there. We'd definitely recommend The Purple Quail for any couple on a getaway in the Fountain Hills area.

Thank you again, we'll be back.

Owner's Response: It is important for us as owners of this property, to provide something personal for our guests, something that a hotel or condo cannot provide. Suggestions on places to visit, the bikes for your use and the fresh baked scones are just some examples of what will set us apart. We love living here and know you will enjoy it as much as we do. We look forward to meeting you here at The Purple Quail.
