About Millie Richardson

We have been coming to the Valley for 15 years to enjoy the sunshine and escape the blizzards of Michigan. We enjoy traveling the world and immersing ourselves in other cultures. I love re-designing living spaces to incorporate a natural sense of serenity while creating a feeling of simple elegance.

Millie Richardson purchased this condo in 2018

Why Millie Richardson chose North Mountain

We love the community and own several vacation condos on the lake. This one captured our attention because of the awesome lake view. It is very close to the lake (and on the 2nd floor) so when you look out from the living room, dining room, kitchen, or master bedroom it appears as though you are on a boat on the lake because all you see is the water! It is amazing! We fell in love with it and decided it needed a Coastal atmosphere inside as well as the view!

What makes this condo unique

The community is quiet and serene but we have GREAT access to the major roads leading to all areas of Greater Phoenix. Plus being right off the I17 provides opportunities for great day trips both North to Sedona or South to Tucson.

Bright, clean and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Millie’s home was a wonderfully relaxing respite from our daily grind. Very quiet and clean. Having the huge porch was a treat and the pool was good sized, too. The pool was also maintained very well. Being close to grocery stores was nice. This is a little oasis!

A perfect condo in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Property is exactly as described and presented in pictures. What cannot be portrayed is the great time we had with our family enjoying a family dinner followed by a game of cards in a perfect location. We especially enjoyed the pond with geese and ducks and the beautiful patio. The condo was clean and well appointed. There wasn't another thing we could have asked for. We will stay again on our next trip to Phoenix. And thank you property owners for such wonderful communication during the process. Would highly recommend this property.

Peaceful atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 days and truly loved this space. It was spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved the big deck that overlooked the lake. It was always shaded on the north side of the deck. The geese and ducks added to the ambience. I never heard the neighbors above or below us, very quiet and peaceful. We will stay here again.

Nice relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and sister are staying there and they really enjoyed the scenic balcony with watching geese and their babies. This condo was very close to visit their mother. There is shade even in the afternoon sun. Nice roomy well appointed condo. I personally talked to the owner and she is very nice and accommodating. will be staying there in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jame for an awesome review. It is important for folks to know that when the sun is beating down in AZ you can still sit outside in the shade of the patio with the ceiling fan on! Please come stay again! Millie

Amazing, beautiful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo on the lake. The pictures online are so accurate to what you find when you get there.

We were greeted by ducks and geese as we enjoyed our morning coffee relaxing on the oversized porch.

The pool is conveniently located right across the parking lot and is where we spent much of our day.

This place had a very welcoming vibe from the moment we walked in, decorated to feel like a beach house and set up with anything you might need! Very clean and quiet!

Millie, the owner was quick to respond when I had a question and even emailed me several ideas of places not to miss while out exploring.

We plan to rent this particular condo again, maybe at Christmas when we need a break from the Great Northwest rain.

Thank you to the owners for sharing this home away from home!!

A great place for some serenity and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable and homey place to stay. We had an issue upon our arrival, but it was taken care of very quickly and equitably once we brought it to the owners attention. We loved the beach/nautical theme. The pool was perfect, too! We will definitely put this on our return list.
