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.

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much. The property was beautiful and we loved it. Access was easy. We were in Phoenix working and this made our time there more relaxing. We were able to have family with us and they enjoyed the house and the area. Having the pool was great with the desert temperatures.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Ying's home was perfect for our Thanksgiving vacation. It is immaculately maintained and comfortably fit 5 adults. The outdoor space was perfect for relaxing. While it was too cool to use the pool, we did take advantage of the hot tub. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, but still was close to activities, shops, etc. We will definitely be returning to the Zen house when we travel to the Phoenix area.

Beautiful House

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.
