I enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle. Fountain Hills is located on the foothills of the McDowell mountains 500 feet above the valley. Fountain Hlls has a small town, friendly feel. You can enjoy spectacular mountain views everywhere you look! I chose Wahinda Casitas because of the convenient location to shopping, dining, library, post office, and Fountain Park with its jogging trails.
With only 28 units I enjoy the privacy of the Wahinda Casitas complex. It really is a great get-a-way! The spaciousness and the openness of the unit with numerous oversized windows let the mountain views inside. The view from the Master Bedroom Deck is awe inspiring. I love Fountain Park with its wonderful walking and jogging path around the lake. During the day relaxing by the pool or golfing nearby then at night enjoying the fine dining nearby or driving into Scottsdale for the symphony, concerts, art galleries, or shopping.
We stayed for two months in this unit in Wahinda Casitas Complex. The unit has many windows and mountain views from almost every direction. The deck was great for sunbathing and overlooked a wash area where we watched rabbits, coyote, and quail. We were within steps to a great heated pool and within walking distance to the town center. It was a very unique location giving both privacy and availablity with all the comforts. of home.
Spent month of Feb at this 2nd floor condo. Part of a small quiet development in Fountain Hills. Decor and appliances dated but condo is clean and spacious. Balcony large enough to dine out and sunbathe. Scenic views out of all windows. No internet access but owner is planning to add. Neighbours friendly. Gym down the street a nice option.
My wife and I was able to stay a week in this lovely 2 bedroom unit. It was clean, well maintained and had a great view of the surrounding hills and mountains. I especially enjoyed the large deck that overlooked the pool and also the desert. I had the good fortune to be on the deck one day looking at the drainage and saw a bobcat walking along the dry streambed. That was the first time I'd ever seen a bobcat in the wild. We found it quiet and close to all the amenities of Fountain Hills. This was the seventh time we've stayed in Fountain Hills and was the best condo that we've been in. I'd recommend it to anyone if you want a great place that's near all the wonderful things that this area has to offer. Hopefully we'll be able to come back next year.
