About Craig & Suzanne

Craig grew up in British Columbia. He had a 25 year career as a Deep Sea Diver which took him all over the world. He’s since been a Photographer and a yacht broker but now Craig spends his mornings trading stocks online and his afternoons playing his favourite sport of tennis. He’s an excellent cook and an incredible handyman which Suzanne benefits from everyday.

Suzanne was born in Ottawa, Ontario and moved to Vancouver, BC at the ripe old age of 18 where she fell in love with the natural beauty of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean so she never looked back. The bulk of her work life so far was a 22 year career in the Cruise & Travel business as a Regional Sales Manager for Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Azamara Club Cruises. Deciding to live and work on her own terms, she jumped ship in Jan. 2013 and has since worked for herself as a Distributor for an incredible skin treatment product called SKINCERITY which is 1 of 6 products with NuCERITY International.

Suzanne’s shameless plug: She came upon this product as a recommendation from a friend. Having had eczema on her face all of her life she was at first skeptical of using this “anti-aging” nightly masque called SKINCERITY. The only thing that ever kept her eczema at bay was Cortisone cream in the past which is very harsh on your skin. To her delight, after only a few days, her eczema was gone. Not only did this product tone & tighten her skin but kept her eczema away. It’s helped with sun damage and created the perfect environment for her skin to be in its’ healthiest condition. Craig has also experienced great results with his psoriasis. It’s truly magic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our second season renting a condo in Portofino, which is located very well within the lovely development of Lakewood and this one was superior to the last one. Portofino is located within walking distance to good shopping and eating venues. The unit is located inside the development, so there is no street noise. It's also oriented so the windows face east so there's plenty of light but not a lot of heat build-up. The unit is very well appointed and has all of the essential cooking and entertainment equipment for a long enjoyable stay. Lastly, the landlords have been extemely accommodating.

Exactly as Described

  • 5 of 5

I went to Phoenix to visit my son and his family and stay part-time in this condo to experience condo living. This condo is exactly like described in pictures and comments. The owners are especially helpful and work with you with complete instructions in a notebook provided, travel information, local information, etc. I enjoyed the two pools and grocery shopping is nearby and convenient. Also, the condo is completely equipped with everything you will need... especially enjoyed the convenience of the washer and dryer and walk-in closet.

Our 1st retirement condo stay.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at our Portofino condo. The property was in a beautiful setting with the South Mountains nearby for hiking and a great area to walk right near the condo. We utilized the pool, fitness center, and grilling areas and enjoyed them all. We were close to great shopping and places eat and the weather was fantastic. Our condo was clean, fully furnished with everything we needed. We loved it and plan to go back again. It was awesome!

Craig was very organized and provided a binder with all the information we needed and checked to make sure everything was ok. We could not have picked a better way to start our first snowbird retirement from Minnesota!

Lovely Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this lovely one bedroom condo was very enjoyable. The decor was tasteful complete with everything I needed for my three week stay. Craig, the owner, called on occasion to check in with me to see if I needed anything. He had a binder available complete with maps, information on operating everything from the entertainment system, the washer and dryer, to directions to and from the airport, plus restaurant suggestions and more. This charming condo has the additional attraction of being located within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants and banks. The property is situated in an upscale neighborhood that provides secure walking and jogging opportunities.Plus, there are two very well maintained swimming pools.

My stay was very nice and I look forward to a return visit.

Delightful Surprise

  • 5 of 5

Before we flew down to Phoenix I carefully read all the very glowing comments provided by condo guests from April 2012 to June 2013, and I thought surely it can't be this good. The condo, the grounds, the location, hmff,sounds too good to be true. But, in fact, it was all accurate. We arrived late at night, tired, and a bit grumpy, after all we are in our early eighties. But what a lovely surprise. The condo photographs were indeed accurate. All that was promised was real; very elegant, but welcoming. We were very happy to open the bottle of wine awaiting our arrival and toasted our good fortune.

In the days following, we explored the Portofino grounds, walked around the Lakewood Parkway , and back through the park in the middle. Tested the warm 82 degree pool, large enough to swim laps, we made very good use of that. Followed the wall around to the opening to the Mall, and delighted in all the goodies we found in Fryes Market, five minutes walk away. I was even able to pick up the morning paper while husband made breakfast. We had planned on dining out, but we never felt the urge, ate better “at home” with the help of Frye's excellent selection of food, and the very well equipped kitchen, much better than my own. It was very pleasant to wine and dine on the verandah, listening to our choice of music.

After a couple of weeks, we returned the rental car, I waved goodbye to my husband at the airport, awaited in Arrivals for my friend and we spent the following two weeks exploring Ahwatukee by bike. With the aid of the information provided in the condo, its very convenient central location and the Ahwatukee map , it was a joy to head out each morning, sometimes getting lost but always finding ourselves. The bike trails, the cactus gardens, wherever we went there was something interesting.

We had no urge to rent a car. e.g. we were able to go by bus to the the Desert Botanical Gardens. Fifteen minutes walk from the condo to the park and ride, bus #108 to Priest and Elliot (Costco and Walmart), then Bus #56, which dropped us at the park entrance. All for $3 each, all day pass.

Would I recommend this condo, a very resounding yes. Definitely five stars.

Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at this property for almost 8 weeks while our permanent rental home was being remodeled. We chose this condo for the amenities such as the small office desk area and king size bed. The place was furnished very comfortably, the kitchen had anything you would need to cook a full meal, make a smoothie, or brew some tea/coffee. The bathroom towels were amazing and the bedroom closet very roomy. The owners Craig & Suzanne were always available if we had a question. This condo is centrally located to the 10 freeway, all shopping, gas, & restaurants (Ginban Sushi, CK's, & Arrivederci just some of our favs). We even walked to CK's on a warm night as well as morning walks by the lake which is across the street from the property. Use of the pool was convenient as well. My husband & I would definitely recommend this property for a short or long stay. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Craig & Suzanne!

Ahwatukee Gem

  • 5 of 5

The Ahwatukee suburb of Phoenix is clean and relatively quiet. All the amenities one needs such as restaurants, groceries and shopping are a short drive or within walking distance. The property is well maintained and the condo is fully equipped with full service for eight in flatware, glasses etc. The owners, Craig and Suzanne are very helpful with any concerns one might have. The wi-fi, entertainment system and printer all work just by following Craig's folder of instructions. This is a great condo to travel to nearby Phoenix attractions. For hiking, South Mountain trailheads are ten minutes away. For cyclists, bike lanes are everywhere for road bikes and for mountain cyclists, the trails are close enough to ride to from the condo. This unit is also close to a gas grill located a few steps away at the hot tub spa. This was a great asset for us. I would recommend this condo for two people for long stay vacations. It is clean and well maintained and worked perfectly for us. We would not hesitate to rent this unit again on a return visit.
