Description from owner

Welcome our condo located in a resort setting situated in beautiful Ahwatukee! Ahwatukee, an Indian word meaning "house of my dreams" is located just 15 minutes south of downtown Phoenix. Meticulously maintained landscape with fountains and palm trees greets you at the grand entrance of this great property and you will be amazed by the deep blue lakes and breathtaking mountain views. The stunning beauty of the Sonoran desert oasis will bring you serenity!

Located just 12 miles south of the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, we are within walking distance to the grocery stores and dozens of restaurants found in the Ahwatukee Foothills Village, one of 15 ingeniously planned villages in the Phoenix metro area.

Also nearby is the sprawling South Mountain Park-the largest city park in the nation-with its miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

As your hosts, we want to make sure your stay at our condo is exceptional.

My husband and I are 25-year veterans of the travel and hospitality industry, which means we know what guests value in a travel experience.

And as avid travellers, we decided that, for our honeymoon, we wanted to visit a place we'd never been to before. We chose Phoenix.

Despite having visited hundreds of large and small places around the globe, Phoenix grabbed us. Two years later, we made Phoenix our part-time home (we spend the rest of our time in Montreal) and began to share its many, many perks with our rental guests.

We love to cook, wine, and dine, so we left a few of our favorite culinary tools and essentials for you in the pantry and cupboards.

Walk to Trader Joe's to select some fresh ingredients and whip up a meal for friends. While you cook, your guests can take a seat at the bar stools looking into the kitchen.

A dining table just off the kitchen seats four.

There's a sense of community here, as well, and many of our friends have purchased units after visiting us just once. It just has that kind of magic!

A tip: the area surrounding our condo is at its most magical at sunset. We recommend an evening stroll around the lakes with oranges and reds reflecting on the glassy water as the sun sinking below the ridge of the desert mountain range in the distance.

Afterwards, return for a night time dip in the heated pool.

You can do this everyday for months, if you'd like!

We'd love to have you join us. Please get in touch with us via the orange button on the right-we'll gladly tell you about our upcoming availability and anything else you'd like to know about our ideal Arizona oasis!

About the owner

We fell in love with Arizona when we went there for our honeymoon in January 2007. We were dreaming that one day we could own a property there. That dream came true in 2009. Each time we go to Arizona, we feel at home. We feel the energy, the peacefulness and the serenity of the Sonoran desert. ...

“Exquisite Home Away from Home!”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2015

I worked as a travel industry professional for 18 years and continue to travel extensively for work and pleasure. I've stayed in accommodations around the world and was so impressed with how Lucie and Daniel have created the ultimate "home away from home." They both had professional careers in the travel and hospitality industry and it shows! The condo was immaculate and exquisitely furnished with everything a guest could want - even a small backpack for day hikes in the surrounding desert. They know what information travelers need which makes everything easy and stress-free, from grocery shopping to renting a car. The complex is beautiful, the pool and jacuzzi well-maintained, and the surrounding neighborhood is friendly and visually delightful - great for walks! Ahwatukee is the perfect home base for day trips to Sedona, Casa Grande, Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix. Lucie and Daniel are the perfect hosts and they share their passion about Arizona. You'll feel so spoiled, you won't want to leave!

Owner's reply: Thank you Serena for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the near future.

I will go back!
