The area has a large selection of restaurants, retail shops, golf courses, tennis courts, hiking trails, a farmers market, a huge outlet mall, an AMC 24 Theater and so much more. Ahwatukee was actually voted one of the U.S. top 10 places to live in 2002.

About Jamie Heinz

Hi, everyone! I recently purchased this beautiful home in sunny, warm Phoenix to escape from the cold, dirty New York winters! I decided to offer up my home for vacation rentals to bring in some extra income (hey, every little bit helps, right?). I've since relocated to Phoenix permanently and reside elsewhere in Ahwatukee. I absolutely love the layout of this home as well as the community it is in (Ahwatukee has a very magical feel to it - you'll know what I mean when you get here!), and it makes me happy to know that I could open my home up to other very nice people.

Jamie Heinz purchased this house in 2013

Why Jamie Heinz chose Phoenix

In April 2013 when I traveled to Phoenix to look for homes, the realtor drove us all around the different neighborhoods in the Phoenix area. NOTHING compared to the magic and beauty of Ahwatukee Foothills. There are desert mountains everywhere you look, beautiful palm trees and cacti - Ahwatukee is truly an art of nature. You must see this place for yourself. Ahwatukee was voted one of the top ten places to live in 2002.

What makes this house unique

This home has many unique benefits. The home is located on a very quiet block with little traffic, beautiful views of South Mountain from the Kitchen Breakfast Nook. The backyard and pool are Super Private - there are no homes behind you at all, and only one story homes to the right and left of you, so not one nosy neighbor will be able to stare at you and be in your business! It's SO private you could tan in the nude or skinny dip if you wish! (Just saying LOL).

Also, every single room in the house has high, valted ceilings which gives the home interior a very 'grand' and open feeling. I love one story homes; who wants to keep going up and down a huge flight of stairs 20x a day? That gets old really fast.

Lastly, the master bedroom and master bath are to die for in my opinion. Just love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My partner and I stayed at this house for a couple days during a heat wave and we really couldn't have been in a better place in 120 degree weather. We grilled lamb chops (from AL-Hana, although there is a Safeway right down the street) on the grill and splashed in the pool all night. The neighborhood was wonderfully quiet and the wall surrounding the back gave us the privacy we wish we could have at home. :) Jamie was very attentive despite being on the other side of the country and made sure that we were able to get the most out of our stay.

The house was spotless and the furnishings brand new. The house would have been plenty big for a family to stay, and the quiet neighborhood seemed very safe if that is an issue.

I really have nothing to complain about, our trip went flawlessly.

Wow is all we can say. We do visit Arizona yearly looking for a place with predictable weather, generally warm, and relaxing. This is the first time we stayed at Jamie's place, and hopefully not the last. The house than met our expectations in terms of looks, cleanliness, and equipment. Jamie was even kind enough to stop by to say hello and to familiarize us with the remotes and with the pool heater. Very quiet and safe neighborhood, and despite its location upon looking at a map, it is VERY close to EVERYTHING. We loved hiking the very nearby Telegraph Pass and Desert Trails in the mornings, hanging out at the pool in the afternoon, and then eating at the multitude of local restaurants (check out Va Bene). We were so lucky to get a great week of weather, all of which was above average and near record highs. Nothing better!!! Movie is close, and we also attended a concert at Celebrity and a show at Gammage. Visited our nice who lives in nearby Chandler. Did our usual shopping stroll in Old Town Scottsdale. Truly, a perfect vacation. Yes, the pool is heated, the house is modern, just about the whole place is new, and all the usual household items were there for our use and enjoyment. Hoping that not too many of you PICK ME, so we can get a repeat visit when dates convenient to us become available. Cannot thank Jamie enough for her hospitality.

Great Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This location was literally 20 minutes from everything- Scottsdale, Mesa, Downtown, Airport, etc. We spent the week going to spring training games and it was perfect. The house was equipped with everything we needed including dish soap, laundry detergent, hair dryer, etc. Jamie thought of everything and was so helpful and accommodating. Outdoor area was so nice with the patio table, lounge chairs, grill and of course the pool which was perfect for the five of us. I would definitely rent this house again next time we are in town. Great experience. Thanks Jamie!
