About Jamie Heinz

Hi, everyone! I initially purchased this beautiful home in sunny, warm Phoenix to escape from the cold, dirty New York winters! I decided to offer up my home for vacation rentals to bring in some extra income (hey, every little bit helps, right?). Eventually, I made it here to Phoenix permanently and reside nearby in Ahwatukee.

I absolutely love the layout of this home as well as the community it is in (Ahwatukee has a very magical feel to it - you'll know what I mean when you get here!), and it makes me happy to know that I could open my home up to other very nice people.

Jamie Heinz purchased this house in 2013

Why Jamie Heinz chose Phoenix

In April 2013 when my fiance and I traveled to Phoenix to look for homes, the realtor drove us all around the different neighborhoods in the Phoenix area. NOTHING compared to the magic and beauty of Ahwatukee Foothills. There are panoramic views of desert mountains all around, beautiful palm trees and cactuses/cacti everywhere - Ahwatukee is truly an art of nature. You must see this place for yourself. Ahwatukee was voted one of the top ten places to live in 2002.

What makes this house unique

Why did I choose this home? Several reasons: the home is located on a very quiet block with little traffic, beautiful views of South Mountain from the Kitchen Breakfast Nook. The backyard and pool are super private - there are no homes behind you at all, and only one story homes to the right and left of you, so no neighbors can be in your business.

Also, every single room in the house has high, vaulted ceilings which give the home interior a very "grand" and open feeling. I love one story homes; who wants to keep going up and down a huge flight of stairs 20x a day?? That gets old really fast.

Lastly, the master bedroom and master bath are to die for in my opinion. Just love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My partner and I stayed at this house for a couple days during a heat wave and we really couldn't have been in a better place in 120 degree weather. We grilled lamb chops (from AL-Hana, although there is a Safeway right down the street) on the grill and splashed in the pool all night. The neighborhood was wonderfully quiet and the wall surrounding the back gave us the privacy we wish we could have at home. :) Jamie was very attentive despite being on the other side of the country and made sure that we were able to get the most out of our stay.

The house was spotless and the furnishings brand new. The house would have been plenty big for a family to stay, and the quiet neighborhood seemed very safe if that is an issue.

I really have nothing to complain about, our trip went flawlessly.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Spent two weeks here and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is immaculate and Jamie has provided every amenity imaginable. The pool was heated as promised and we used it almost every day. It's clear that Jamie takes exceedingly good care of both her house and her guests. We would definitely come back. Thanks Jamie for everything.

Very nice home with a beautiful pool.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice home with a perfect pool and patio area for relaxing and soaking up the Arizona sunshine. My family did not stay long, but we were able to maximize our time thanks to the home's close proximity to local restaurants, shopping and casinos. When we weren't in the pool, which we were a lot, we were taking a short inexpensive Uber ride to destinations that satisfied everyone's desired vacation activities. The only bummer we found was the size of the bed in the third bedroom, as it really only sleeps one. Otherwise, everything else the home offered was perfect, especially the complimentary bottle of wine. We would definitely stay again.

I loved my stay 8/25-29/2016

  • 5 of 5

When doing my search for a house in Arizona I had looked at many many houses on VRBO. I am thrilled that I made such a great decision on renting this house from Jamie in Ahwatukee. I have rented a lot of homes through VRBO and by far it was an extreme pleasure to communicate with Jamie. Everything ran smoothly from letting me know about check in a few days before to the check out,and with directions to the house and Jamie's suggestion of taking a more scenic route. Her home is beautiful, cozy and beautifully decorated. Welcoming touches such as a welcome note and a complimentary bottle of wine was very classy. Everything I needed to know was written on a paper for me to reference and at any time I could have emailed or contacted Jamie at any time. The pool and the backyard area is a great part of this house, extremely private and you feel as if your in your own oasis. The neighborhood is very quiet and inviting. There are two supermarkets not very far away and your not too far from the main areas of Arizona (Scottsdale/Phoenix). Jamie was extremely accommodating, I had an issue with my flight which was delayed and she was more than gracious to help me out. I couldn't have asked to stay in a better home, with a better owner. If I ever return to Arizona, I will rent this house again for sure.

Thank you so much Jamie for an enjoyable stay...

Review of my stay in Phoenix AZ.

  • 5 of 5

My son, dad, and I stayed there the first week in February. The house was very clean and everything that was advertised. Golf courses, shopping, and dining where all a short drive away. I would recommend this property to anybody who is an outdoors person. It was unfortunate that we didn't get to stay longer. Thanks again Jamie for checking in with us occasionally. We look forward to doing it again.

Comfortable, Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

One of the very best things about this home is the wonderful, responsive and helpful owner, Jamie!

Staying in this lovely and well-located home made our vacation so much nicer than it would have been if we had stayed in a hotel. The house is spacious, clean and thoughtfully stocked with unexpected but appreciated conveniences like coffee!

Photos of the property are accurate regarding the location, layout, and amenities. Customer service was exceptional. I would definitely stay here again and confidently recommend it.
