About The Owner

We are a young (at heart) couple who enjoy golfing, hiking, skiing and other outdoor pursuits.

Why The Owner chose Phoenix

We purchased this property to secure a place in the sun to break up our western Canadian winters. We were looking for a location that had direct flights from our home. Phoenix afforded us all that and more. We can engage in sporting or entertainment events, fine dining, fabulous shopping or we can stay home and relax by the pool or walk around the lake.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is in a beautifully landscaped complex. It is close to many golf courses. The extra bedrooms allow us to have visits from family and friends. The grocery store is only a 2 minute walk. We can get away from it all here without sacrificing any of the comforts of home.

great rental experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay during a transition to moving to the Phoenix area. The condo was spacious, clean, in a nice safe neighborhood, and well stocked for an extended stay. Owners Bruce and Margo were very great to work with and promptly addressed any questions or concerns.

I would very highly recommend staying at this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you Katie/Kris. We very much appreciate your comments and hope that Kris has settled comfortably into Phoenix. We will be at the condo around mid to late December for a couple of weeks, with our (adult) children. Hope we get a chance to meet you if you are around. Bruce
