About Margo and Bruce Kirkwood

We are a young (at heart) couple who enjoy golfing, hiking, skiing and other outdoor pursuits.

Margo and Bruce Kirkwood purchased this condo in 2010

Why Margo and Bruce Kirkwood chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

We purchased this property to secure a place in the sun to break up our western Canadian winters. We were looking for a location that had direct flights from our home. Phoenix afforded us all that and more. We can engage in sporting or entertainment events, fine dining, fabulous shopping or we can stay home and relax by the pool or walk around the lake.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is in a beautifully landscaped complex. It is close to many golf courses. The extra bedrooms allow us to have visits from family and friends. The grocery store is only a 2 minute walk. We can get away from it all here without sacrificing any of the comforts of home.

Ahwatuke Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the condo. Close to a multitude of great golf courses, one of our favorites Arizona Grand just a 10 minute drive. South Mountain is very close by for hiking and biking. My wife as always enjoyed the air conditioned malls for shopping (my favorite part was the air conditioning as Phoenix was unseasonably hot). The condo is spacious and well appointed. New flooring had been installed. The is a pool, hot tub, BBQ area beside the main business center. Fry's is next door and Safeway, Trader Joe's a short walk away. All around it was a great place to stay

great rental experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay during a transition to moving to the Phoenix area. The condo was spacious, clean, in a nice safe neighborhood, and well stocked for an extended stay. Owners Bruce and Margo were very great to work with and promptly addressed any questions or concerns.

I would very highly recommend staying at this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you Katie/Kris. We very much appreciate your comments and hope that Kris has settled comfortably into Phoenix. We will be at the condo around mid to late December for a couple of weeks, with our (adult) children. Hope we get a chance to meet you if you are around. Bruce
