About Shirley Hewitt

My husband and I celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary on October 4, 2016. We were born and raised in western N.Y. where we raised our 3 now grown children. We and our family moved to Henniker, New Hampshire in 1989. We love the convenience both summer and winter outdoor activities this area has to offer, including: hiking, snow skiing, water skiing, and biking. Not totally retired yet, we continue to make more time to visit our children and 9 grandchildren in both the Phoenix and Austin, Texas areas as often as we can. Arizona has gradually become home to us as well. The southwest has so much of its own beauty to offer.

Shirley Hewitt purchased this condo in 2004

Why Shirley Hewitt chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

We purchased our condominium located at Portofino in the Lakewood area of Ahwatukee when they were remodeled and converted from apartments to condos. Our children and young grandchildren live in the area and and we wanted to be close to them while vacationing. It provided us with an excellent place to stay that was convenient to everything. The property is always in immaculate condition and is a very quiet place with a beautiful pool and an outstanding view of the lake and fountain. It is an easy drive to The Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Sedona, California, Las Vegas, Tuscon and Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to 3 grocery stores, Fry's, Safeway, and Trader Joes. 10 minutes from any thing you could want, without having to go into downtown Phoenix. Very safe area with many upscale homes in Lakewood and The Foothills. Small fitness center in clubhouse is very nice and clean and rarely crowded. Clubhouse has meeting room with WIFI connection. Condo has WIFI and cable upon request. Very attractive entry way with large arch over both sides of the driveway.

perfect little condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. The owners, Shirley and Ron, were very hospitable and we even met them for drinks one night. The condo is clean and well stocked. Perfect for us. In a nice area with plenty of pleasant walking. We'll surely be back!

Crazy loud bird lives above

  • 1 of 5

I rented this place for almost two months, but had to leave early because the bird that lives above screeches so loud that it would startle me in the middle the night. Also, the occupant that lives there stomps around at all hours of the night and you can hear every step he takes. The place is nice enough, but the noise from that bird will drive you crazy. I found another place and left more than two weeks early. The Owner would not acknowledge the problem and would not return my messages. I received no refund at all or even an apology. I would avoid this place at all costs.

Owner's Response: Stuart, We are sorry about your bad experience. When you called us to let us know you were leaving early, we thought it was about moving closer to you job because you mentioned that at another time. This time it was about the bird upstairs which you never complained about. We would offer you a refund for the period of time that you left early. If you would have let us know that was the reason you were leaving early we could have saved you some aggravation. We take pride in giving our tenants the best possible experience. Again we apologize for your unfortunate situation.

Great Condo for 2

  • 4 of 5

We certainly did enjoy our stay at Portofino condo. The condo was super clean and very comfortable for my husband and I. Each morning we had our coffee on the patio in the warmth of the sunshine. The pool was so relaxing; basking in the sun poolside made our vacation complete. It was a joy to meet Shirley & Ron, they came right over when we developed some TV problems, got the problems resolved so we could watch TV when we had time. Our AZ trip was our first vacation in many many years so what a delight to stay at the condo, also enjoying family visits, hiking and of course shopping.
