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.

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.

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.

ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
There is nothing nicer than being away from home and feeling that you are at home. Everything has been thought of and provided in this beautiful Ahwatukee condo. The property is accurately depicted in the listing by the photos and the description. The location is close to shops, restaurants and South Mountain which is a great spot for hiking. The owner couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and provided a basket full of activity ideas and a binder with complete condo information. I would definitely recommend this property for an enjoyable stay while visiting Phoenix. We will definitely be in touch with the owner if our future traavel plans include Phoenix.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful comments. We continue to make little improvements to our condo every time we visit based on the feedback from our guests. Even though this is our little home away from home, we're still tourists when we visit which allows us to share information about new and interesting places we've been to during our stay. We're happy to hear that the information was helpful. All the best.

AHWAHTUKEE 1 BR APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We have been staying in Phoenix for a month each fall for five years now. We have rented apartments from N Downtown area to Ahwatukee - and this is the best yet! The apartment is very well furnished qand equiped. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. The quality of everything was top drawer. Very convenient for shopping (walking distance). We used the smaller of the two gyms available and everything was in good working order with very few users. The owner, Craig phoned soon after our arrival (to make sure we had everything) and again just before checkout (to ask if we had suggestions for improvements), Computer connections were flawless with ethernet and wi-fi options and a printer provided. The TV has a good range of channels and a video hard disk recorder that is easy to use. Excellent rent. Will certainly use it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review. Craig is amazingly meticulous when it comes to the information package he put together for our guests. We're also glad you appreciate the quality of our furnishings. We like to surround ourselves with nice things and saw no reason why our guests shouldn't experience the same thing.
Cheers!! Suzanne & Craig

A WONDERFUL MONTH!

  • 5 of 5
Portofino Condominiums are a wonderful place to stay in Ahwatukee and Craig and Suzanne's condo is no exception. It is as pictured and perfect for a couple although it can sleep 4. The kitchen is well stocked with small appliances, pots and pans, dishes and glassware, as well as a broad selection of spices. I appreciated the broadband connection as well as wi-fi, and TV watchers would appreciate the extensive cable availability as well as a DVR. Having local phone service was also a plus.

Craig supplies an information packet when you rent that was very helpful within the condo as well as the neighborhood. He was very responsive to any questions I had during my stay and called to make sure everything was working properly. I highly recommend this property.
