About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This Non-Smoking home is located within a serene paradise... Numerous lush trees with beautiful mountain views... A sanctuary in the desert! Within this spectacular community, you will have full privileges to all that this community has to offer; two pools including a lap pool and a separate children’s play pool, Jacuzzi, and tennis courts. Nearby is a third pool that remains heated year round. The home is tastefully furnished with all the amenities and comforts of a luxury home.

In the surrounding areas of this paradise, you’ll find much to do to fill your day... You can see major league baseball spring training (in March) or take a short drive to the downtown Phoenix Sports Complex (less than 30 minutes) and, depending on the season, see the Phoenix Suns, Cardinals, Coyotes, or the 2001 World Champion Diamondbacks. Taking a tour of the Chase Field Ball Park is a nice way to spend a couple of hours. This ball park is a must see while in the area. In addition to the retractable roof and air conditioning (in a ball park!), there is a swimming pool!

There is always the unmatched splendor of the Grand Canyon within a four-hour drive. On your way to or from the Grand Canyon you can stop by to see the inspiring red rocks of Sedona (be sure to take a jeep ride while you are there). There are also the old west towns of Prescott and Jerome within an easy couple of hours drive time. Tucson is also a brief hour and a half drive.

About Sandra Marshall

I am a professional artist/author, and lived in this house for five years before meeting my husband. This house was such a great place to live we don't ever want to sell it! We try to make it super comfortable, and welcoming for all to enjoy. The ultimate compliment is when our guests return. We have been doing this for almost fourteen years so we are doing something right! We just remodeled our kitchen/bath. Granite countertops with high end cabinetry makes this the ultimate gourmet kitchen that is open and warm. We live very close just a few miles away if you need anything. We also own an art studio Be...An Artist which is less than three miles away. We have comedy nights, painting nights and all sorts of activities for adults and children for when you have guests.

Our website is

We take great pride in what we do. We have classy art and photography throughout the house.

Sandra Marshall purchased this house in 2004

Why Sandra Marshall chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

This is the best area because it is close to everything! You could walk to stores for great shopping, coffee shops, movies, ride bikes on greenbelts, swim, golf, play tennis, etc.. so much to do. The neighborhood is VERY charming with little black lamp posts and trees throughout.

What makes this house unique

This is a quiet neighborhood with very respectful neighbors. If you are looking to have a loud party here, it is NOT the house or neighborhood for you. The pools are great for laying out, swimming, or just reading and relaxing.

A fantastic house with a great location - PERFECT for families and children

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this home with our two young boys (ages 2 1/2 and 4) for two weeks during Spring Training. The house is lovely, comfortable and clean. It was equipped with everything we needed to feel at home during our stay. Sandy even brought over tons of toys for our boys to play with! The backyard isn't huge, but was perfect for barbecuing and was a great place for our kids to play. There is a neighborhood pool one block from the house, but it isn't heated and was too cold to use in March. There is a heated community pool about 2 miles from the house. It is a huge pool with lots of seating and lounging areas. We swam there quite a bit and it was never crowded. There is a great playground/park just a few blocks from the house. There are also walking/jogging paths nearby.

The city of Ahwatukee is a fantastic place to stay. I've heard from more than one person that it is known as the family cul-de-sac of Phoenix. It is a newer area with lots of shopping and restaurants.

We had a fantastic vacation and I would highly recommend this rental, particularly for a family with children.

Great home, great time

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now with our two children. The owners really go the extra mile to customize toys/gear appropriately for the kids. It is such a pleasure to vacation in such a nice home with virtually every amenity our little family needs. Owners seem eager for input on what else guests might like to have available in the home, but I can't think of a single thing. Great location, quiet street, but close to SO much. I will stay here every time we come to Phoenix - if we're lucky enough that it is not booked up already!

Perfect home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 3 boys ages 6, 2, and 2) had a wonderful week in this home in April 2011. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Owners are friendly, helpful. The back yard was a play haven for our little boys, and the neighborhood was wonderful for our older boy (quiet street for biking). We all enjoyed the proximity to very nice playgrounds in the neighborhood, as well as the pool. My husband and I trail run and mountain bike, and there is great access to South Mountain Park (about a mile to the closest entry point). Also great access to paved bike path system, greenbelt. Very quiet location, but super close to supermarket, restaurants, and Interstate 15. This house is a great value, we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice spot to call home for a Phoenix/Ahwatukee vacation. The listing description is very accurate, and the photos show the property in its true form. Very clean, well-maintained. Owners even dropped off some extra toys for our kids to enjoy for the week, very gracious.
