About Lili & Greg

Empty Nesters

Lili & Greg purchased this house in 2015

Why Lili & Greg chose Phoenix

Back in 2008 when we first discovered Ahwatukee we never thought we would be able to own such a wonderful little piece of heaven. Not to big and not to small for our little 3 person family. When we first saw the property amidst all its wild scene we saw a diamond in the rough. We bought it, loved it, polished it and now ready for y'all to enjoy!

Our home gives you the feeling of being away from it all, however you are no more than minutes away from restaurants, casinos, freeways (I-10) and shopping centers. Regardless if your a vegan, in the mood for some Tex-Mex or just want to try something new, you name it we got it.

What makes this house unique

Our home is centrally located to the wondrous beauty that Phoenix has to offer here is a small sampling of what is close to our home:

Sculling, paddle boarding or just slow boat ride along our beautiful Tempe Town Lakes.

Day trips to the Aravaipa Creek, Weavers Needle for hiking and the natural beauty that our state offers.

If you're feeling lucky and want to try your hand at blackjack we have several casinos within a 20 minutes drive.

If you're a golfer we have some of the most beautiful courses.

If you're into baseball we have Cubs stadium minutes away.

Once your done enjoying your day come home; pop open a bottle of wine, throw something on the grill and enjoy life in our little private sanctuary we call our back yard. With the calm water falling and soft tunes in the background and people who love you ..... life doesn't get any better!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The recent home remodel was expertly done, and the home is wonderfully furnished. The private pool in the back and the community pool and hot tub less than a block from the house were great. Last, but not least, our hostess, Lili, was, and remains, an angle

Fantastic location and amenities

  • 4 of 5

Property was modern, well appointed and very well maintained; just as advertised.

Owners were very responsive to all our inquiries with instructions for accessing the property and all amenities well laid out and easy to follow. A welcome note, bottle of wine and a couple of new cruiser bicycles were all nice touches.

The property had a open loft with a connected bedroom/bathroom suite on the upper floor and bedroom suite on the 1st floor, great for some separation/privacy if desired. We were also located within a 2 block walk to friends and family we were visiting, which made our stay extremely relaxing. By far, a much better option than a hotel.

Hiking or biking trails, golf course and a grocery store all within walking distance.

Look forward to staying at the property again in the future.

Exactly Like It Shows

  • 5 of 5

Me and my two friends absolutely loved it here and want to come back. There was plenty of room for what we needed. The remodeling you did was fabulous. The private outdoor pool was heavenly. the location to hiking trails and shopping were spot-on. It was an easy area to figure out and that was important to us. You've got a real gem here and we would highly recommend it!!!

A Private Retreat For Two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a relaxing week in the Ahwatukee Foothills and enjoyed our stay in this clean, quiet, safe, secure, and conveniently located home in a gated community. This is our fourth visit to the area because we enjoy the peacefulness and mountain views in almost any direction. There also isn't a lot of traffic in the area, which is especially nice for us as we come from a noisy city in the Northeast. When we travel, we also prefer the privacy of a backyard pool, and this one was just steps away from our bed...perfect for a refreshing morning swim! There is a community pool as well, which we did not use, but we did visit the community area to watch the sun set over the lake and mountains. Eating healthy when we travel is a must and we had everything we needed to prepare our meals in the pristine kitchen. The closet grocery store is within walking distance (although we drove), which was super convenient. We also enjoyed going for morning walks and runs in the neighborhood, and even discovered a park close by that we never noticed on any previous visits to AZ. For those who like to eat out, there are several restaurants within walking distance. My favorite restaurant is about a ten minute drive, and specializes in organic, vegan meals but also has some gluten free and vegetarian options too. It's called "Pomegranate" if you want to check it out. If you love to be active, definitely check out South Mountain Preserve too. It's one of the largest municipal parks in the country and it's a short drive away (bring lots of water). We slept in the bedroom on the main level and we slept well. The bed was comfortable and the texture of all of the bedding felt good. The shower was an experience too! It's spacious, the tile work is beautiful, and it was a treat to see the sky and clouds when looking up at the high windows. Lastly, the owners of this property are very attentive and responsive. It is obvious that they take good care of their guests and the property. We would definitely consider returning for another week, and would refer this property to our friends and family.

Dessert Oasis Home

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the beauty of Awhatukee. This property had a nice privacy pool (a must in AZ) in the yard with a gas grill and a view of South Mountain. There is a larger community pool if you have a large group. The house is updated, clean and well airconditioned (important). There is a two car garage that protects your vehicle(s) from the intense AZ sun.

Even coming in July (not a popular time to visit) my family was comfortable and enjoyed their stay. There is hiking, horseback riding, shopping and easy access to Pheonix. Awhatukee is clean and well maintained by the city. We highly recommend property for couples or families needing a house in the Phoenix area.

Ahwatukee is a great location and offers the amazing opportunity to be close to the mountains as well as to many attractions while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the desert. Please do come back to visit and consider us for a longer stay the next time around. Greg & Lili

Clean, comfortable nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable and nicely decorated, this home was just as described! We arrived February 1 and stayed two and a half months in this lovely vacation home - wished we had booked for longer. It is beautifully decorated, modern, located in a quiet gated community, with fantastic mountain views. It was everything we hoped for. Fully equipped with everything you need, comfortable beds, great TV entertainment, lovely private pool and the feeling that you are in your own home. We cooked on the BBQ, entertained on the patio and used the community pool and Jacuzzi. Best of all owners Greg and Lilian could not do enough for us. Greg prepared a binder for us containing everything we needed to know including best restaurants and ones nearby which was very helpful. He identified all the great golf courses for us too which was much appreciated and used. Lilian seemed seconds away, responding electronically, to any question or request.

Loved our stay and would definitely stay again! Don and Linda

During your stay you can make it as busy or as laid back as you'd like. We are minutes away from the local night life, casinos, restaurants and sporting events. Yet nestled back enough that it lends itself to a quiet night of constellation watching in the back yard while enjoying your private pool area.
