We are sitting at the airport waiting for our flight and already missing our 'home away from home'! Staying at your vacation rental was a very pleasant surprise for us, especially since we have never done this before. Mr. and Mrs. Szabo has a very well appointed condo and having the pool just steps away from the door was a big plus. It was clean and had everything you could want, including a nice neighbor! The condo was also centrally located for all our needs. Thank you, we do hope to come back again soon! Linda and Jerry Allen

Everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Fountain of the Sun. Our condo had everything we needed. The appliances were nice and worked perfectly. The bed was comfy and all the linens, dishes, & silverware were plentiful. We liked being so close to the pool. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The resort has many activities that we also enjoyed.

Needs attention to details

  • 5 of 5

First, it's important to say how relaxing our stay was and how comfortable and quiet the condo was (except for those darned doves). That said . . .

1. While we especially enjoyed the proximity to the pool, our timing was bad -- the pool guy had just been replaced and the new one hadn't started yet, so the pool and its deck and furniture needed cleaning. Also, there never was anyone available to remove the nighly covering of the pool. Glad my husband is strong. Not the owner's fault but a disappointment nonetheless as part of the reason for choosing this property was being steps from the pool.

2. The presence of so many birds caused the pool deck and furniture to be dirtied and unappealing because of bird and rabbit poop. Besides that, the birds were especially loud while we never heard a peep from the bunnies.

2. There was no way in which to check-in to our flight. We had to find a pack 'n ship store in order to print our boarding passes; the office for the communities claimed not to have wi-fi. They weren't at all helpful.

3. The condo was nicely decorated but lacked those "little touches", like games or even a deck of cards; books or magazines; dvd's. Channels listed as being availble on the tv were not available after all.

4. Amazingly the kitchen lacked a pizza cutter but otherwise had the basics and plenty of nice flatware and dishes.

5. I would've appreciated a bar of soap in the showers although I liked the presence of liquid handsoap in the baths and kitchen.

6. The toilet paper and kleenex were cheap and rough, definitely not in keeping with the classy presentation of the condo in general. .

7. Unable to access the owners through VRBO to ask questions. Very frustrating and disappointing.

Owner's Response: First I am sorry about several things, family medical took front stage in my life and for that reason I was busy and not checking VRBO as often as I should for that I am sorry. Second the Doves are a problem if they you keep up noise they tend to stay away. I have spoken to Karen about placing a Pizza Cutter in the kitchen. Please accept our apology and give us a another chance Joe

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a very very comfortable home away from home! The condo itself is stocked to perfection with every possible need available within the unit. It is very well maintained and we enjoyed our stay in the area immensely. We would definitely recommend this unit to others and would choose it again for ourselves. Thank you for adding to the comfort and quality of our holiday!

Fountain of the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one month at the beginning of Fall and loved it. The place was very well laid out with excellent furnishings and new appliances. It comes fully equipped with everything you will need for daily living including lots of dishes, towels and made up beds.

We took an hour break at the pool that is just outside the patio door as there is lots of sun at this time of year and barbecued on the super grill that comes with the place.

The neighbors are all very friendly and there is lots of shopping near by and lots of things to see and do in the area.

Thank You Joe and Karen for letting us stay there.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay. While in Mesa visiting family it was very nice to have a "home" to go to and relax. The condo was beautiful and peaceful. Everything was clean, and there were many more amenities than listed. Thank you so much for a quality place to stay for our vacation.
