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 Augusta at The Foothills
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!

Amazing family fun!
My family and I had an amazing time in Arizona! Her rental is inviting and modern. The rooms are filled with inspirational words and beautiful decor. Everything was there so we were able to relax and enjoy. The pool was beautiful, there were even floaties for the kids! The location was ideal to stores, restaurants and attractions. We would definitely return to her rental:-)
Home away from home
Jamie is just fantastic. The home/neighborhood has such a warm welcoming and relaxing environment. The weather was so hot so using the pool daily was an enjoyable asset. The house is fully stocked with everything you could imagine. We look so forward to returning soon.
Warren & Karen ~ thank you so much for your lovely review! I am thrilled to hear you both enjoyed the home and your trip to sunny AZ. I look forward to having you back (and thanks again for all the goodies in the fridge you left me yay!).
All the best,
Great house for two families, mountain biking heaven!
We spent spring break at this awesome house and would go back in a heartbeat! It was perfect for the six of us (4 adults, 2 kids), quiet neighborhood yet close to shopping, restaurants, outdoor recreation, etc. South Mountain Park trailhead is a 10 minute bike ride away where you can hop on the Desert Classic Trail and take that all the way to the Grand Arizona Resort and back. Fantastic 2 1/2 - 3 hour ride, petroglyphs, fun washes/gulleys to ride through, desert flowers and even some wildlife! There's also a city park (Desert Foothills Park) near the house with a beginner mtn bike trail if you have younger kids. (download the "MTB Project" app which has detailed information on all the trails in the area). Jamie has two new bikes at the house which allowed us to ride all over the neighborhood and on some nice paved trails near the Lakewood area The pool was just the right size for our group to cool off in after a morning of riding and was a fun hangout at night - very private.
We also used the grill a few nights and played guitars on the pool deck with the palm trees all lit up, very festive. The house has three bedrooms which was perfect for our group, nice sized living room, dining area and kitchen with breakfast eating area. The kids loved having the option to download movies as well. There is also a washer/dryer which came in very handy.
Jamie was very responsive to any questions we had and even left us a bottle of wine to welcome us to her lovely home. We definitely plan to go back!
Dylan, you are the best! I so appreciate you taking the time to write such a wonderful & detailed review (and with lots of tips for my future guests!). I'm excited to hear you enjoyed the new mountain bikes I recently got for the home. I hope to have you all back again in the future. : ) ~Jamie
Totally Reccomend staying at this sweet little oasis in the desert. Everything from the pool, grill and many amenities made our stay one we will never forget!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Yvonne! I'm so glad you and Billy had a great little "staycation" at Casita del Sol 😊� Best, Jamie
Beautiful property. Jamie was great!
YES INDEED!! PICK ME!!
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.
Alan, what a lovely review! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to post this. I'm so glad you and Linda enjoyed your stay. I hope to see you again in the future! All the best, Jamie
