Overview

Phoenix Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo: 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Our short-term rentals are geared toward those who need to stick to a budget yet would still like to enjoy the additional size and amenities of a complete vacation home as well as the convenient location and private, well-kept environment of a resort hotel. Starting out at Motel 6 prices, even our most expensive rates are half the starting rate of a single bedroom and bathroom at the Hilton next door, yet with two to three times the space! We strive to provide a great value to guests, offering both affordable rates and the convenience of a full-size home in a pleasant gated community.

This is a nicely appointed upper level condo located in the gated Resort Vacation Rentals at Pointe Tapatio Cliffs community within 150 feet of both the Canyon Pool and Sunset Pool, the latter of which can be seen from the balcony. The unit features a full-size patio balcony, accessible from two sets of arcadia doors, overlooking the community. Enjoy the relaxing view of swaying palm trees against a scenic mountain backdrop while you dine outside or sip your morning coffee.

The modern 1100 square foot floor plan places the two bedrooms on opposite sides separated by the living room and can sleep up to four comfortably with a queen and two twin-size beds. The open kitchen & dining area and nine foot ceilings create a feeling of space and openness throughout. The unit features a new 46-inch HDTV entertainment system w/1000-watt Blu-Ray 5.1 surround sound, as well as integrated iPod & WiFi connections allowing you access to Netflix, Blockbuster, YouTube & more right from the TV screen as you relax on the ultra comfy L-shaped modular sofa. Further upgraded services such as WiFi Internet, calling features and premium cable channels are also available. Guests receive a mailbox key upon check-in, so those here for multiple weeks or months may have their USPS mail temporarily forwarded directly to the resort mail huts. UPS and FedEx packages will be delivered to your door.

About Management

We are an active couple who like to travel, bike ride and go to sporting events.

Management purchased this condo in 2005

Why Management chose Phoenix

The Pointe Resort is a gated community located in North Phoenix about 10 miles Northeast of downtown and is adjacent to the Pointe Hilton Resort at Tapatio Cliffs. The complex contains three pool areas each with hot tubs, restrooms, grills and showers, as well as on-site tennis and basketball courts. All pools and spas are temperature-controlled, open and swimmable 24/7/365, and those staying for longer durations may have their mail conveniently delivered to one of the mail huts here on site. UPS and FedEx packages will be delivered to your door.

What makes this condo unique

Nearby is the North Mountain Preserve where there are numerous hiking and biking trails. Ten golf courses are within a seven mile radius, starting with Lookout Mountain next door to our north. The nearest major supermarket is less than a mile away for all your grocery needs to stock up your kitchen. There are four major indoor/outdoor shopping malls within 5 miles, in addition to many chain stores and restaurants within 2 miles or less, yet this gated community is a virtual hidden oasis for tranquil relaxation. The centralized location within the North Phoenix area provides a convenient home base with easy access to all the destinations, sites and establishments in both the East and West Valleys, and it's within a few hours driving distance to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, San Diego and Rocky Point, Mexico. Overall a great vacation retreat for couples, families and golf enthusiasts!

Good overall

  • 4 of 5

The condo development, pools and grounds are very good and the gardens and pools well maintained. Location is good for short hops north to Flagstaff, Sedona etc. Condo is well located for pools. We agree with other comments - time for some upgrades in the kitchen mainly and the twin bed headboard set up is a little noisy.

This was an exceptional rental! The condo is beautiful, spacious, and ideal for our family of four. Very clean, other residents are very friendly, safe neighborhood and close to stores and restaurants. The three pool areas were clean, very relaxing and friendly. The rental agent was super and the property was as promised. We'd love to stay here again if we return to Phoenix. Highly recommend it! Two bathrooms and washer/dryer were wonderful!

Lovely Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great secured location with all the amenities. Our 2 bedroom condo had all the amenities of home.

We loved the pool and the quiet area. Our grandkids visited us for a week and especially enjoyed the basketball and tennis courts. Such a great experience overall.

Thanks, Steve!

Thank You Steve!

  • 4 of 5

Spacious condo with plenty of storage. Queen bed in master is very comfortable. There are two twins that we used only a little. These are rickety, but I told the manager (Steve) who will fix them.

Some things are showing their age, especially the non-stick cookwear.

There is a potential "catch" regarding electricity. Your rate includes $25 per week. We did not need the AC, but did use the heat pump at night. Have no idea if I used more than the limit.

Community has pools and gas grills. Convenient location. Gated neighbourhood which is somewhat of a buffer zone between an industrial zone and a nicer residential area. One flight of stairs. Parking right outside of door.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all feedback we receive as it really helps us in our property management as well as prospective guests who read the reviews. We do however like to clear up any misunderstandings so as not to mislead anyone reading them. The "catch" the guest refers to is no catch at all. It is outlined clearly in the contract he signed and he never once asked about this during his long 6-week stay or we would have been glad to further explain, so we are surprised to read it now in his review. To explain, we used to charge $50/wk. more with unlimited power. To avoid charging all guests more for those few who use power excessively or carelessly (namely just the AC in the hot Phoenix summertime) we now include what is a generous amount but over that it is deducted from the guest's security deposit. At our extremely low rates we cannot afford to have enormous electrical bills from guests who treat it like a hotel room where power is unlimited and often keep it extremely cold, on full blast while gone, or with windows & doors open, etc. They are cooling an entire home, not a hotel room, in temps that can soar above 115º degrees. However, for those who prefer unlimited power we do offer it still for an extra $50/wk. (the amount we reduced our rates by when first implementing this policy that keeps our rates so low). This guest stayed during the cool weather of late fall/early winter, never mentioned this to us and did not even go over his limit at all (which very few ever do, especially in cooler seasons; the few that have usually go over from $5-45 dollars for their entire stay). We did go out of our way to accommodate this guest due to his unfortunate circumstance by granting him a $500 discount on his extension request and attended to all his needs and requests immediately the same day. We also agreed to refund four nights that he decided to check out sooner than he had extended, which is against our policy, but we were sympathetic to his situation. We pride ourselves on being the only company here who has an attendant on site 24/7 and provides full service check-in at no extra cost. Unfortunately, we cannot address issues or answer questions that a guest never brought to our attention during their stay, but only mentions them after the fact in their review.
