About Ruth Harman

My husband & I left the Chicago suburbs (Naperville) in 2001 to enjoy the sunshine and casual lifestyle in AZ. We lived in North Scottsdale until we discovered the charms of Fountain hills and now live near our rentals. We love to walk around the Fountain and Lake with our dog & attend all the Fairs & Festivals in Fountain Hills and enjoy the quaint shops. We also own #652422 a single family home and other r properties. Call me 480.227-5265. We maintain the property to very high standards. We love having guests (many repeat guests) and take every precaution to ensure your comfort. We are available to direct you to local restaurants and events. We are really looking forward to your stay and establishing a long relationship for years to come.

Ruth Harman purchased this condo in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spent 2 months while home shopping. This was the most convenient option. So much nicer than a hotel suite and less expensive too. We just brought our summer clothes and

put everything else in storage until we needed it.

Great place in the heart of Fountain Hills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while house hunting and it was great. The space is well appointed and the pride of ownership is obvious - well maintained, clean, updated with all the amenities of home. We particularly enjoyed the convenient location - shopping and food literally across the street, easy walking to the fountain and downtown stores, etc. Ruth was very attentive and responsive; the few issues we had were resolved quickly and she is a great resource for information about the area.

Owner's Response: We were happy to have you both and your fur baby for the months you were house hunting & hope you enjoy your new home in AZ. All of our properties welcome relocating couples, those here for medical treatments and of course snowbirds, but this is our most popular because of the location. Enjoy the endless sunshine and best weather in the country!

Great location near downtown, restaurants, everything you might need.

The owner is extremely nice and thoughtful. The condo is clean and has everything you need including beach towels for the pool, basic cooking spices, a little outdoor patio with patio dining set, dish tv, and more. We felt very fortunate to have found this place.

Easy Transition to Arizona

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for when we relocated to AZ. It was clean, safe, comfortable and stress free. We recommend this type of transition for anyone moving long distance. It affords you time to decide

where you want to live full time.

Wonderful Fountain Hills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 3 months with our cat. Condo was clean and very convenient to many stores and restaurants in F.H. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and some staples were in the cabinet. It was so nice not to have to go out and stock the whole kitchen. The beds were comfortable and plenty of linens and towels. The bathroom also had a selection of bath items for use and cleaning supplies were available. The area was very quiet. Just a short stroll from the famous Fountain Park and fountain with the lovely one mile stroll around the fountain. There are also several great restaurant to visit on the stroll. Great view of the mountains from the patio.

Owner's Response: Glad your trip home was safe and uneventful. Having respectful, clean guests like you, Don & Madison in our vacation rental is a pleasure. We're glad you'll be with us again next winter for 3 months. Have a great summer.
