Property description

We offer luxury at an affordable (and scaled) price; a stay of 30 nights or more translates to daily rate of about $90 per night! We also offer special rates for active military and Summer guests.

And we know you'll love the house as much as we do -- so book your next vacation, family reunion, or business trip with us!

The desert is a wonderful place to visit. Winter brings cool mornings, pleasant evenings and warm afternoons. Fall and Spring are picture-perfect--Fall with its golden afternoon sunshine and Spring brimming with flowers and other blooms. Summer offers long days, endless time in the pool, early morning and late evening walks, dining outside (under covered patios) and much more!

You'll never run out of ways to spend your time -- in the spa or swimming; golfing; hiking; enjoying a basketball, baseball, hockey, or football game; visiting our beautiful mountain areas (just a short drive away); or rafting down the Salt River.

The house itself (3000 sq feet/2 stories) is beautifully furnished. As our pictures suggest, you will not be disappointed with the lovely backyard that adjoins a mountain preserve and the two upstairs balconies with breathtaking views.

Jump in the newly resurfaced pool or just lounge in the sun in or around the spa. Inside, relax in front of one of two fireplaces (one in the family room, the other in the master suite), or have a dining adventure in the spacious formal dining room. You'll LUV cooking in our updated kitchen, with eye-catching granite on all counters and the expansive island.

We have HD (and web-connected) TVs and DVD players throughout the house; there's entertainment for everyone. And, of course, you can easily connect to the Internet (via direct Ethernet or wirelessly) if work or web-surfing is your thing.

Other upgrades include kitchen appliances (dishwasher and double-oven); attractive blinds in the great room, upstairs office, and master suite; hardwood flooring (bamboo--in the master suite and cedar-lined master closet, upper hallway, and stairs to the lower level); decking on the master suite balcony, and a rod-iron railing separating the relaxing patio area from the pool. [Safety for young children is definitely our priority!]

We upgrade every year. Apart from the poor surfacing, we recently updated flooring in the kitchen, family room, and elsewhere on the lower level).

**NEW ... Rent a PNEV at the airport (plug-in electric vehicle ... for example, a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Ford Fusion, or SmartCar) and the miles you drive are on us (thanks to the new charger we just installed). Why pay for gas when there's an alternative!

[Click 'Links to More Information' (below) to see additional views of our home!]

All utilities, even phone, are provided at no extra charge. Within minutes of the house you’ll find high-end resorts (like Wildhorse and The Pointe) and championship golf courses. For the outdoor enthusiast, there are biking, jogging, and walking trails just minutes from your doorstep. [Ahwatukee abuts South Mountain, one of the largest hiking parks in the country.] The community also boasts some of the finest swimming and tennis facilities in the Phoenix area.

And, of course, there’s gaming at any one of several nearby Indian casinos.

If professional sports are your thing, you've come to the right place: basketball (Phoenix Suns), football (Cardinals), hockey (Coyotes), and baseball (Diamondbacks).

And there's shopping, of course--and lots of it! Several major malls are within a 20-minute drive. Any dining experience you can imagine is within minutes, from exclusive restaurants to burger joints.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We have owned property in the Phoenix area for more than 20 years; we love the weather ... and our neighborhood.

Why the Owner Chose Ahwatukee:
We purchased our home as an investment after selling rental property in San Diego that we had owned for many years. We were quite familiar with the area --- having lived in a different house (about 3 miles away) between 1992-97, while Mrs. Michel was earning her doctorate at Arizona State University.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has a perfect floor-plan; it's very comfortable with many amenities. We especially enjoy the kitchen and family room areas; they're bright and cheerful, and face the yard which itself backs to the preserve.
