The three bedroom, split floor plan features an oriental master suite with a reading corner where you can get lost in your favorite book , or simply enjoy the view out the window overlooking our large desert lot and the 10th green of the beautiful Desert Canyon Golf Course. Walk out the slider and take a dip in the pool, then return to the fabulous master bath, complete with a custom copper jetted tub, double vanity and Rain Forest Marble/Glass shower with Grohe double shower head.

Awake from a peaceful night’s sleep on the designer King bed in the second bedroom, and walk out your slider to enjoy your morning coffee on your private patio, watching the sunrise over the Superstition Mountains. Or collapse in the third bedroom onto the Italian leather contemporary King bed.

Enjoy the gourmet kitchen complete with premium appliances, custom cabinetry and exquisite Verde Bamboo slab granite countertops with full backsplash. Sit at the large island and “supervise” the cook, or make your own ice cream with the built-in fabulous Bosch Kitchen Machine. The large laundry room features premium, large capacity front load washer and dryer, as well as a large utility sink.

Take a short walk up the hill to enjoy the fabulous (and incredibly reasonable) Sunday Brunch Buffet on the patio at DC Bar & Grill, featuring Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, Homemade Rolls, Apple Smoked Bacon, and Bread Pudding ... Simply Delightful!!! Or consider venturing a few minutes into town for great food and live music on Friday & Saturday nights at the warm and rustic Saddle Bronc Grill on Saguaro Boulevard.

We have tried to create a Spa-like retreat with custom artwork and furnishings, slab granite countertops and travertine floors throughout, but it is our home ... You are precious and valued guests in our home and we will strive to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

About The Owner

We are proud to be in Arizona and loving life in one of the most beautiful states in our great country!!!

We have four beautiful children and a beautiful blonde border collie named Toby (Spoiled like a grandchild, since we're now empty-nesters) Our profile picture is from our oldest daughter's wedding, celebrated at this house and the Steakhouse @ Desert Canyon, just a short walk away.

We began Equine Medicine in 1988, and over the years have raised, shown, and raced Thoroughbreds, Morgans, and Quarter Horses.

We love the beautiful scenery and the wildlife of the desert. We love to play golf and tennis, yet our true passion is time spent at the lake with our family & friends -- and of course, Toby swimming.

We love the terrain and scenery of our quiet desert retreat ... the mountains, the hills, the wildlife, the peaceful neighborhood, and the convenience to great food, golf and shopping, even medical care at the world-renowned Scottsdale Mayo Clinic

We love sports (especially football ... GO BRONCOS), movies, music, good food and great friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Arizona

In 1999, we wanted a warm weather home and everyone told us Fountain Hills was THE spot in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We spent a week looking around the metro area without limits...drove over 1000 miles and looked at many houses and areas, yet we always were drawn back to Fountain Hills.

We wanted grass without having to maintain it, thus Desert Canyon Golf Course for our backyard.

We loved Red Mountain and the Superstitions, thus our phenomenal view.

We wanted the smaller community feel, yet the amenities of a major metropolitan area without having to live amidst the big city chaos, thus our quiet cul-de-sac without street lights and traffic.

We wanted the convenience, economy and access of Sky Harbor International Airport, an easy 20-30 minute drive from the house.

We wanted the slightly cooler temperatures and cleaner air the hills provide.

What makes this house unique

Lots of wildlife on our large desert lot along the beautifully manicured fairway and green, just outside the pool area.

Incredible sunrises and sunsets

Walk to the Desert Canyon Golf Course and enjoy a round of golf or dine at the exquisite Steakhouse at Desert Canyon.

Peace & Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our spring break at this beautiful Fountain Hills property. We all loved the pool, hot tub and pool table. I found the setting to be very peaceful, I loved sitting on the back patio looking out over the golf course at the mountains (hills?) in the distance. The owners were absolutely fantastic to work with and the house was super clean and comfortable. I would totally stay here again!

A Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

W have rented previously through VRBO but have never found owners to be as friendly, helpful or professional as Meredith and Herb. All emails and questions were answered promptly and any small concerns dealt with immediately. The house is bright and cheerful and is fully equipped with anything one might desire (especially for flying guests). The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked even down to basic condiments and kitchen supplies - very helpful. We found everything to be immaculate and well maintained - a real plus in our books.

We travelled with 1 other couple and a third couple joined us for a few days. We found the house to be plenty roomy and functional even with the 3rd couple.

If you like to walk the neighbourhood is beautiful. As it is hilly, the views are spectacular and the clubhouse patio (a 3 min. walk) offered the same outstanding panoramas.

Lucky us, we were able to christian the new hot tub! Fabulous, as was the pool and beautiful landscapes from the backyard.

We are active seniors still walking and golfing and found everything we required in the upscale neighbourhood of Fountain Hills.

It is truly a beautiful oasis in the desert.

Much needed Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in Fountain Hills. We stayed at the property from 3/28-4/4/15. The house is well maintained and the owners have outfitted it with detail in mind for guests who are flying into the Phoenix area. Herb and Meredith take great pride in their home and we were delighted we chose it for our vacation. We would definately come back!

Repeat Canadian Guests

  • 5 of 5

Another fabulous stay at your home over the past week and a bit. The pool was absolutely amazing with the warm temps - never missed a day lounging around it. Everything you could imagine that is magnificent - describes this property. The views of Desert Canyon Golf Club are literally right out the kitchen window. Speaking of the kitchen, it is a chef's delight and each room is immaculately decorated. The owners are extremely hands on and an absolute delight to deal with. They truly make you feel like it's your home while you are there. Proximity is perfect to golfing, shopping, and sporting events. Sadly we have to wait another year to visit but most assuredly will return. Thank you for everything!!
