About Janet Laing

I moved to Phoenix in 1994 and am almost a native at this point! My husband and I are both originally from Kansas and although we have lived many places in the US, we have grown to love the west and southwest.

Janet Laing purchased this house in 1994

Why Janet Laing chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

After coming to Ahwatukee for a job, I stayed to retire! This was my home until my husband and I bought another home very nearby because we love Ahwatukee. This home is very special to us and we treat it and our guests with utmost care.

What makes this house unique

I love the openness and lightness of the house, the tile floors, the plantation shutters and wood blinds, and the private garden. The house is in a small retirement community where neighbors know each other and where the HOA Board takes good care of the house exterior and landscaping. There is a neighborhood pool and clubhouse just a short walk away and there are frequent social events.

The community is in the heart of Ahwatukee and close to local shopping needs, and to larger malls. It is just off I-10 and 20 minutes from the airport.

Great home in wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable home that is perfect for a couple looking for extended stay with room for visitors if required. Sliding doors to a private covered patio makes for a terrific open feeling to the living space. Well appointed furnishings and utensils, appliances are slightly dated but work well. Has a great studio/office room for reading or work station. Outstanding location, close to virtually everything. WIFI and cable channels much appreciated.

Hidden treasure included with this rental is the 55+ access to ARC centre for all types of activities ...... outstanding!!

Janet & Ed are quick to respond to any/all tenant requests and a pleasure to deal with.

If you are lucky enough to find this property available .... do not delay - BOOK NOW!

Delightful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, clean, well kept property in a quiet adult community. Comfortable beds, nicely stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, books to read, and a lovely backyard perfect for bird watching. In addition it has a private 2-car garage.

Walking distance to pool, parks, restaurants with an extra added bonus of being less then a mile from South Mountain. South Mountain is awesome for hiking, mountain biking, running and walking. Minutes from the I10 Freeway for easy access to all Phoenix has to offer.

Well Appointed and Comfortable Home in Very Pleasant Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Although in the Phoenix area for possibly the hottest six weeks of the year, this wonderful home, very well designed, comfortably and completely furnished, provided a welcoming haven from the heat. The location was perfect for our need to be in the vicinity to help our family. Janet and Ed were so kind and made us feel at home. We would like to spend more time with them and would definitely rent this home again.

Repeat Stay is a must

  • 5 of 5

For the last five years this has been our second home for four months. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have found the ideal arrangement for our annual winter escapes. The home, the setting and the community are a perfect match to our expectations. Through all this time Janet and Ed have been the best of partners, who we now affectionately call friends.

Owner's Response: We have so enjoyed sharing our Ahwatukee rental home with our Blind Bay guests over these past few years. They have indeed become friends. We shall miss their Canadian visits each fall and winter.

Fantastic home and owners!

  • 5 of 5

We're a retired couple who stayed in this wonderful Ahwatukee home for the month of Oct. The home was very comfortable and we loved all of the special & personal amenities. We enjoyed everything about this home-the layout, the comfortable furniture, the patio, the landscaping-but most of all the owners. They made us feel like part of their family. We will definitely consider renting this home again.
