Phoenix House Rental Photos and Description

2012 Remodeled 3 Bedroom + Office, 2 Bathroom, mountain view

Beautifully remodeled Home with designer touches everywhere. Located in a gorgeous foothills neighborhood of convenient Ahawatukee. Close to I-10 and 15 minutes away from Sky Harbor Airport, 20 minutes to Phoenix downtown, and Scottsdale old town. From the bathrooms to the kitchen everything has been remodeled (2012) to create a fabulous contemporary modern feel, all while retaining a casual southwestern relaxed attitude.

When you really want to relax, take advantage of the Backyard Oasis. The resort style pool with waterfall , adobe fireplace, and bordering palm trees will beckon you outside. Grab a lounge chair under the covered patio and listen to the water as it cascades down the falls. For total relaxation, soak in the large Hot Tub situated in a cozy corner of the yard under a shady tree canopy.

The master bedroom includes a king size canopy bed with a brand new luxury mattress and hypoallergenic silk filled comforter. The master bath sports an amazing high tech shower with multiple jets, a Jacuzzi style Kohler soaking tub, granite counter top, and travertine floor.

The other two bedrooms are tastefully decorated and outfitted with comfortable queen and full size beds outfitted with luxury Egyptian cotton sheets. Both of these rooms also have ceiling fans for added comfort.

Guest bathroom has been remodeled with a travertine floor, granite counter top, and a dreamy glass bowl sink with unique modern hardware.

Gourmet Kitchen equipped with stainless appliances, cookware, gourmet spices, and all the necessary accoutrements. 20” travertine tiles throughout and granite counter tops. Dark stained cabinetry adds a rich and inviting modern touch to this great space. This is a kitchen meant for foodies -- plenty of room to cook that perfect romantic or family dinner.

Spacious Living Room, Dining Room, and Separate Family Room furnished with high end Italian Furniture. Enjoy the 55” flat screen TV with 200+ Direct TV Channels.

If you must get work done, a furnished office with wireless internet access is there for your use.

Why not get your laundry done before you get home? Washer and Dryer included!

About Ying McGuire

Grew up in the far east and living the American dream today, I now call Austin my home. But whenever possible, I come to my oasis of tranquility in Ahwatukee. I personally designed every element of the home and hand made indoor and outdoor curtains. Hope you will enjoy my home as much as I do.

Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location and was well suited to our needs. It was also nice that we were able to access the heated community pool. Ying was wonderful and very accommodating. I would definitely stay in this beautiful home again.

Great Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Ying's house over spring break and had a wonderful time. The house is absolutely beautiful. Everything was clean, there was a lot of space, the accommodations were comfortable, the house was stocked with necessities - it was very nice! The backyard is beautiful. Unfortunately, the pool was too cold for us to use very often, but we used the hot tub each night. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe. There are many restaurants and stores within walking and/or driving distance. The community pool was very nice as well. We would recommend Ying's house if you are looking for a nice getaway. Thank you, Ying, for making our visit so wonderful.

Very clean. Easy access to everything.

No tv in master bedroom. Nice but non private back yard. Sofa in family room uncomfortable. Nice, fully outfitted kitchen. Very clean. All amenities were there.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, thank you for your review. We intentionally do not have a TV in the master bedroom in keeping with the Zen theme of the house; our intent was to keep the Master Bedroom as a place of peace and solitude. The coach is indeed a bit on the firm side, but does provides great back support. We generally take advantage of the pillows and it becomes a cozy place to relax. We will take your comments to heart and see what we can do to improve the guest experience. We hope you will choose to stay at our place again in the near future. Best Regards, Ying & Lew

Lovely, warm, inviting home with gorgeous pool and pool area!!

  • 5 of 5

This great home is in the middle of everything you could want. It has a super pool and access to the nearby big pool which is wonderful. Golf, shopping, interstates for easy access, great grocery stores and all kinds of places to eat within a block or two. Very nice walking paths and of course you get excellent AZ weather! We come back every year and consider ourselves very lucky.

BEST Vacation HOUSE & HOST Ever! You can't get here fast enough or stay long enough to enjoy it all!

  • 5 of 5

First of all we did not want to leave...that is how amazing it is!! This is the MOST beautiful comfortable house we have ever stayed in! Right from the get go there was great communication - everything was laid out perfectly for our arrival and easy for our departure! (It made us sad to leave though...) The house is fully furnished with everything you could possibly want or need (including a laundry room - HUGE TV - cable - the works) and was in a beautiful quite neighborhood. We were there for a Plexus Convention so we drove about 20 minutes to downtown Phoenix and it was a breeze to get on the highway from here. Decorated so beautifully and they didn't miss a beat! Also the pool is the most fantastic thing EVER! Seriously, there was nothing that I didn't love and I plan on coming back again! Enjoy your time and ZEN time!! <3 These guys are the BEST owners I have EVER met... XOXO
