Fountain Hills house description
Vacation in paradise and enjoy the luxury of our custom home, overlooking the tenth fairway and green of the fabulous Desert Canyon Golf Course along with a breathtaking view of Red Mountain. Enjoy the ease and economy of flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and your short drive northeast up the Beeline Highway to our beautiful retreat. Located on a private, yet convenient cul-de-sac, just minutes from Mayo Clinic, Ft. McDowell and some of Arizona’s premier golf courses and shopping/dining experiences, the contemporary, open floor plan with high ceilings provides the perfect spot to sit by the Mini-Pebble heated pool or entertain friends with the 60” Plasma TV and wet bar or the 65” DLP TV and Brunswick pool table. Gather around the high-top table to enjoy a game of cards, or relax with a movie from our large DVD library. For the music enthusiasts, enjoy our vast CD collection or better yet, if there’s a pianist in the group, let them serenade you on the beautiful ivory baby grand piano. Enjoy the beautiful summer nights on the 600+ square feet of covered patio or sit in the spacious Sundance Maxxus Spa and make a wish on the beautiful starry skies above Fountain Hills, a wonderful community centered around its world famous fountain, where street lights are the exception and quiet relaxation is the rule.
The three bedroom, split floor plan features an oriental master suite with a reading corner where you can get lost in your favorite book , or simply enjoy the view out the window overlooking our large desert lot and the 10th green of the beautiful Desert Canyon Golf Course. Walk out the slider and take a dip in the pool, then return to the fabulous master bath, complete with a custom copper jetted tub, double vanity and Rain Forest Marble/Glass shower with Grohe double shower head.
Awake from a peaceful night’s sleep on the designer King bed in the second bedroom, and walk out your slider to enjoy your morning coffee on your private patio, watching the sunrise over the Superstition Mountains. Or collapse in the third bedroom onto the Italian leather contemporary King bed.
Enjoy the gourmet kitchen complete with premium appliances, custom cabinetry and exquisite Verde Bamboo slab granite countertops with full backsplash. Sit at the large island and “supervise” the cook, or make your own ice cream with the built-in fabulous Bosch Kitchen Machine. The large laundry room features premium, large capacity front load washer and dryer, as well as a large utility sink.
Take a short walk up the hill to enjoy the fabulous (and incredibly reasonable) Sunday Brunch Buffet on the patio at DC Bar & Grill, featuring Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, Homemade Rolls, Apple Smoked Bacon, and Bread Pudding ... Simply Delightful!!! Or consider venturing a few minutes into town for great food and live music on Friday & Saturday nights at the warm and rustic Saddle Bronc Grill on Saguaro Boulevard.
We have tried to create a Spa-like retreat with custom artwork and furnishings, slab granite countertops and travertine floors throughout, but it is our home ... You are precious and valued guests in our home and we will strive to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

What an incredible “home”!
What an incredible “home”!
What an incredible “home”. Yes, I mean “home”. This was so much more than a mere vacation “house”. There’s no doubt that this was the best vacation home we have ever rented! Everything about the place was spot on and the home so comfortable and inviting. The location is perfect! The views are majestic! The town is super friendly! And the owners are fantastic to deal with! Unfortunately, the second day we were here my husband broke his big toe and was placed in a walking boot. So, all of our golfing and hiking plans quickly changed to recuperation and relaxation. To stay positive, we both agreed there was no better place to recuperate. I spent everyday in the pool and he accompanied me on the patio. Together, we watched the awesome wildlife on the 10th hole that included rabbits, quail, roadrunners, woodpeckers, coyotes, the neighborhood bobcat and lots of bats. We soaked up the incredible views at dusk. We chatted, worked puzzles, and listened to soft music on the outdoor sound system. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything one would want and we took advantage. When it got a little warm outside or it was time to come in for the evening, we enjoyed watching sports, tv shows and movies in both entertainment areas. Oh, and the Directv NFL Sunday Ticket was not lost on us. Nothing like starting a Sunday with mimosas, breakfast and football! Great home, great location, great owners. We will be back!

Amazing House! Beautiful Location! Terrific Owners!
Amazing House! Beautiful Location! Terrific Owners!
The house and surroundings are absolutely incredible! We felt at home from the moment we opened the front door! The house was warm and inviting and so was the pool and hot tub. The view from the back of the house is incredible and we spent much of our time relaxing in the warm sunshine and taking in the beautiful views of the golf course and mountains. The surrounding area was fantastic as we found numerous restaraunts to enjoy. The Saddle Bronc Grill offers great food with a friendly, fun atmosphere. We have stayed in over a dozen VRBO rental homes in the past and this house is by far our favorite! So much so that we have already reserved two more times to come stay! The owners definitely go out of their way to make sure that everything is expectional and their hospitality is the best!

Excellent Home Away From Home
Excellent Home Away From Home
This was a great rental experience from beginning to end. I can't say enough about the owners and this house. It is beautiful inside and out. It is spacious and welcoming. The two large screen TV's were a blessing since we had a preschooler with us that wanted to watch different programs. The pool table kept the guys busy too. It was unfortulately too cold to enjoy the pool thanks to mother nature, but we will certainly be back when we can. The view is really lovely and the cul-de-sac is very private. I would highly recommend this property and the owners!! You can't go wrong with this house.

Holiday Getaway for New Years
Holiday Getaway for New Years
We have rented many homes over the years through VRBO and we have always had success and this particular home well exceeded our expectations once again! Incredible views of Red Mountain, right on the golf course, the clubhouse is just right up the street easy walking distance for dining and access to the practice facility at Desert Canyon. Excellent accommodations and super comfortable beds in every room. Big-screen TVs, chefs kitchen with super high-end appliance package, large deck with big grill, pool table for adults and the kids. You will not be disappointed if you rent this home and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Thanks again for a great stay we will be coming back!

Owner response: Thanks so much for allowing us to host your family holiday gathering!! We're so glad everyone could rendezvous for some swimming and celebrating!! We'd love to have you all back anytime!!!
Inside the house was very spacious with an open view to the pool and golf course. The kitchen was filled with high-end appliances and everything you need for your dining pleasure. Master bedroom was very comfortable with a large bathroom and big screen TV. We had a very relaxing vacation and would love to go back next year around the same time. Charlie

Golf Course Haven
This home was just perfect for our group of 7! We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub overlooking the beautiful golf course and surrounding homes. We played pool in the evenings and found time to do a 1000 piece puzzle in the library.The gourmet kitchen was impressive--we cooked a couple of dinners and made breakfast a couple of mornings and we found everything we needed. The master bedroom was quite comfortable and its reading corner was perfect for finishing a spellbinding novel. All in all, this home was absolutely beautiful, very clean and up-to-date! The personal touches around the home made us feel quite welcome, The owners were very responsive from our first inquiry to making sure everything was just perfect while we were there.

Great House and Better Owner
Great House and Better Owner
What a perfect house for a vacation! There is no wasted space at all. Everything is dedicated to luxurious accomodations, fun space and a fabulous kitchen. With three separate king beds, even our two teens felt pampered. The fun space includes a great pool, spa, pool table and giant tv's everywhere. The house was spotless and in an extremely convenient location. We agree that this is a "Golf Paradise." We played many local courses and had a blast. The best part of this rental just may be dealing with Meredith. She is a great owner and so conscientious. Her midwestern values make you feel like family! Thanks!!!

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We are proud to be in Arizona and loving life in one of the most beautiful states in our great country!!! We have four beautiful children and a beautiful blonde border collie named Toby (Spoiled like a grandchild, since we're now empty-nesters) Our profile picture is from our oldest daughter's wedding, celebrated at this house and the Steakhouse @ Desert Canyon, just a short walk away. We began Equine Medicine in 1988, and over the years have raised, shown, and raced Thoroughbreds, Morgans, and Quarter Horses. We love the beautiful scenery and the wildlife of the desert. We love to play golf and tennis, yet our true passion is time spent at the lake with our family & friends -- and of course, Toby swimming. We love the terrain and scenery of our quiet desert retreat ... the mountains, the hills, the wildlife, the peaceful neighborhood, and the convenience to great food, golf and shopping, even medical care at the world-renowned Scottsdale Mayo Clinic We love sports (especially football ... GO BRONCOS), movies, music, good food and great friends.
Why the Owner Chose Fountain Hills:
In 1999, we wanted a warm weather home and everyone told us Fountain Hills was THE spot in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We spent a week looking around the metro area without limits...drove over 1000 miles and looked at many houses and areas, yet we always were drawn back to Fountain Hills. We wanted grass without having to maintain it, thus Desert Canyon Golf Course for our backyard. We loved Red Mountain and the Superstitions, thus our phenomenal view. We wanted the smaller community feel, yet the amenities of a major metropolitan area without having to live amidst the big city chaos, thus our quiet cul-de-sac without street lights and traffic. We wanted the convenience, economy and access of Sky Harbor International Airport, an easy 20-30 minute drive from the house. We wanted the slightly cooler temperatures and cleaner air the hills provide.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lots of wildlife on our large desert lot along the beautifully manicured fairway and green, just outside the pool area. Incredible sunrises and sunsets Walk to the Desert Canyon Golf Course and enjoy a round of golf or dine at the exquisite Steakhouse at Desert Canyon.
