Newly Remodeled and Furnished Condo Sleeps 4, with Private Patio and Laundry
This beautiful one bedroom unit features a Queen size bed and walk in closet. The private patio, just off the bedroom, offers a secluded space for outdoor dining and relaxing. The great room layout with vaulted ceiling provides an open, airy main living space, appointed with tavertine tile floors, cherry cabinets and granite countertops. All new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen make cooking a pleasure. The living room features an over-stuffed leather sofa that opens to a comfortable, full-size bed, fireplace and 42' flat screen TV. Through plantation shuttered windows are tranquil views of the park just outside the front door. The completely remodeled bathroom showcases an oval garden tub with bronze fixtures.
Jennifer and I fell in love with the Arizona desert on our first trip there (our honeymoon). Since then, we have made several vacation trips to Arizona and finally decided there is no place else we would rather be.
Jon Green purchased this condo in 2013
Why Jon Green chose Chandler
We have been looking for a second home in Arizona for nearly a year. As we had not found the perfect place, we were on the brink of giving up. That is when we found this beautiful oasis in a quiet area of Chandler that is still close to everything. It only needed a few personal touches to make it a home, and now we would love to share it with you.
What makes this condo unique
We love the Chandler area, especially the Townes of South Meadow units because of its proximity to highways, upscale neighborhoods, and easy access to shopping and restaurants. The condo is an end unit that offers serenity and wide open space that overlooks the expansive park - which is the living room view. The unit was completely remodeled with high end appointments and materials.
Wow, where to start this review. I can't say anything but amazing things about the owner, his communication, and his amazing property. My wife and I are travel nurses and stayed in this property for our 3 month contract. We work night shift and slept mostly during the day and it was extremely quiet and comfortable. The condo has everything a person could need and then some. It is well stocked with kitchen supplies, silverware, and anything and everything a person could need. It has a amazing feeling of home to it. The patio area is well spaced with a brand new BBQ grill and wonderful outdoor patio set. The bedroom is extremely nice and well spaced with a large closet area and dresser for more than enough storage. Bedroom faces west but the sun is well blocked out by a canvas that keeps the house cool during the day. The bedroom remains cool, quiet, and very comfortable and is excellent for daytime naps. Full kitchen (microwave, stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker, blender, etc.) and has all brand new appliances with tupperware and accessories that are good for trips to the pool or picnics in the park behind the property or at Desert Breeze park, 5mins away. Living room is very comfortable with excellent living space. Owner provided excellent information on the area located around the property. Property is ideally located to anything anyone could need. A very large mall that is located 5 minutes away with what seems like any shop, restaurant, or store one could need. Conveniently located within 15 minutes from PHX Sky Harbor Airport, 30 minutes from Downtown Phoenix, 30 minutes from Downtown Scottsdale, and 10 minutes to Downtown Chandler. Downtown Chandler is full of great restaurants such as: The Perch, Vintage 95, and SanTan Brewery. While we were here, we were able to explore the natural beauty that Arizona has to offer. We were able to make day trips to the Grand Canyon, which was a 4.5 hour drive. We were also able to make a day trip to the Jerome area, where we went kayaking through the mountains of Jerome with the Verde River kayak tour (2 hour drive). We also were able to spend some time in Sedona and took the pink Jeep broken arrow tour, which was amazing (2.5hr drive from property). Locally, we did hiking in Scottsdale at Pinnacle Peak Mountain, which was a fairly moderate trail and also Camelback Mountain, which is a great trail but not for beginners. I cannot say enough amazing things about the property, the neighborhood, and the surroundings.

Condo was exactly as advertised. Location was convenient. We especially enjoyed the use of the bikes while we stayed at the condo. The owner and the condo manager were very responsive and helpful. Certainly would recommend this to a couple looking for accommodation in Chandler.
Almost hate to say how wonderful this whole experience was because I would hate to have them raise the prices because I will do this again. We had a wedding in the family and already had a full house. We were going to put the out-of- state relatives in a hotel room. You know what they say about fish and guests. Three days and out they go. They were the ones that actually suggested this condo. I told them to hold off. We live in the area and know there are some parts of town that can be a little rough. The advantage of being local is if you see the same streets show up on the news all the time you know where not to go. I got a good feeling about this from the first time I spoke to Jon on the phone. The property manager Anne was truly a joy to deal with. She agreed to show us the property on a Sunday. What a true professional. She let us know of anything wasn't up to our standards to let her know. The condo is exactly as advertised. I was a little nervous about a bait and switch situation. This place is clean and comfy. Just like it is advertised. They had jugs of water chilled in the fridge and fresh bags of ice in the freezer. They even had a little first-aid kit in the bathroom. The towels were big and fluffy. The chairs and couch were nice and comfy and the bed is super comfortable. The only thing that we needed and didn't take time to look for was scotch tape. If that is the worst thing that I can say is, you have to know that I was truly happy with this whole experience. I will certainly be contacting Jon about renting this condo for the next big family get-together.
Very upscale Condo in quiet Chandler neighborhood that has all the creature comforts of home. We lacked nothing and the owner even purchased a high end Oster Blender so we could make our morning smoothies when I asked him if we should bring our blender with us. My mom had two Cataract surgeries at the AZ Eye Center just five miles away and we enjoyed trying all the different restaurants that are nearby for lunches out and there are over 7 grocery stores all within a 5 mile radius so we were amply supplied throughout our stay. Mom's only recommendation for older adults, a higher toilet would have been helpful as well as a grab bar to steady oneself when getting in and out of the shower and she is short so said she would have liked a hand held shower attachment which would have made showering easier for her. As for me, I slept on the fold out sofa bed and found this to be quite comfortable for sleeping on it. the Master Bed is a bit high but I was able to bring a step stool with handle for my mom that I use at home so that she could safely get in and out of bed in the Master Bedroom. Mom said her bed was extra comfortable. We stayed at the Condo during the hottest monsoon season of the year and were quite comfortable with the three ceiling fan and cooling unit in the Condo. We give this Condo an "A" for comfort and location to medical and shopping facilities.
The first thought when we arrived and opened the door was "home." The condo was very clean, inviting, and well maintained. It was wonderful to have an up to date kitchen and on site laundry. The bed was very comfortable and the room had plenty of storage for clothes and luggage. The pool on the property was clean, well maintained, and quiet. There was a covered area to sit in, as well to get out of the sun.
The location of the property was great, We were only a few minutes away from Phoenix and Scottsdale. Only a couple of hours away from Tucson and Sedona. There are so many things to do in the immediate area including shopping, hiking, scenic drives, and great restaurants. There is a beautiful park within walking distance from the property and we enjoyed walking there several mornings. Camelback mountain is only minutes away and is a beautiful hike to take. We loved driving the Apache Trail. It was a gorgeous drive that is not for the faint of heart, but well worth the time. We enjoyed shopping the 5th street shops and seeing all the hand made art.
The owners were very accommodating and were able to provide flowers for our arrival I had requested. The whole process couldn't have been easier.
We would enthusiastically recommend this property to friends and family.
The condo is located in northwest Chandler in a quiet, residential setting with nearby restaurants and shopping, including Chandler Fashion Center. Additional amenities include Desert Breeze Railroad and Water Park, access to bike paths and hiking trails, including a climb of Camelback Mountain. The location provides easy access to the 10, 101, and 17, making day trips to Tucson, Sedona and the Grand Canyon easily accomplished. The condo is a short drive from several championship golf courses, such as San Marco and Ocotillo Golf Resorts. The City of Chandler and the surrounding area hosts many events and festivals throughout the year, where guests can enjoy regional art, unique activities and local cuisine. Some notable sites include Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's Arizona retreat in Scottsdale; Roosevelt Lake and Superstition Mountain, a little farther east. To the south, guests might enjoy seeing the San Xaviar Mission in Tucson and perhaps the Old Tucson movie set. To the north, Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon offer some of the most stunning scenery; Sedona has been listed by many travel magazines as one of the most beautiful places in the world. Be sure to take the Pink Jeep Tour or Hot Air Balloon ride, if you get up that way. The Grand Canyon offers gorgeous views of northern Arizona. You can drive there or take the scenic railroad from Williams, Arizona.
