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 Phoenix

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.

Everything you'd want.. & more

  • 5 of 5

Shirley & Ron's condo worked out great for my 2 month stay in Phoenix. Just a 20 min. drive from the airport, the 2nd floor condo is ideally located just steps from the heated pool, jacuzzi and gas BQ at the clubhouse.

The brand new big screen TV in the livingroom & 32" in the bedroom made TV watching enjoyable. The 15mb high speed wifi worked well.The kitchen was well stocked & had modern appliances. Decor was contemporary & furniture comfortable.

The two minute walk to Frys next door made grocery shopping quick & easy. Having Safeway, Walgreens & Trader Joes right across the street was a bonus. And the very nice, clean & safe neighborhood allowed for pleasant walks to the greenspace between the lakes.

Another bonus was the free hourly ALEX circulator bus that made trips to Sprouts and the nearby outlet mall possible without the need of a car.

All in all, Shirley & Ron's condo provided me with all of the things I look for in a rental property & allowed me to have one of my most enjoyable Phoenix area vacations. I look forward to visiting & renting their condo again in the near future.

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay for 3 months in 2015. The condo was furnished very well and was located close to the heated swimming pool area and main gym area. It also is within walking distance of major supermarkets, dining locations and is located close to major streets/highways allowing for easy access to the greater Phoenix area. We were very pleased with our stay here and appreciated meeting Ron and Shirley!

Perfect accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice looking apartment, perfectly located in one of the most convenient spots (supermarket at walking distance, for example); great setting in wonderful Lakewood neighborhood. Very clean apartment, fully equipped and furnished. "Homey" feeling, with a nice shaded patio to have lunch or dinner outside. Very quiet and close to the pool for a relaxing time. Owners very friendly and helpful, they arranged for wi-fi connection when I asked for it. Ideal location for jogging, hiking at the Foothills, exploring the area and having a fun and relaxing time without any worry. Highly recommended for a couple wanting to relax and enjoy life. Money very well spent!

A Lucky Find!

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect answer for me as I had sold my house in two days and needed a rental in Phoenix to give me a base to look for a new home. It was a great location. Close to anything desired and was in a beautiful area. A beautiful lake and a favorite day was a little boy trying to get a picture of the ducks, up close. The Condo was furnished with everything you might need and the managers were very nice to work with. They also agreed to let me have my pets with me which was a special feature. I will be telling my friends about this special place.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Shirley and Ron were beyond accommodating! The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. The location was ideal. We jogged every morning around the lake and were able to visit all of the wonderful local restaurants. I was in town for work and was in need of a rental asap. Shirley and Ron went above and beyond to make my transition stress free.
