About The Owner

Together since 1981, we married in 1984. We have 4 grown children, 7 grandchildren, 3 dogs and a cat. Both of us have spent most of our lives in Northern, California. Own and operate several rentals in the Redding, CA area as well as a construction company.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

The reason we purchased a vacation rental in Ahwatukee is easy…….. the grandkids :-) The golfing definitely rates in there and you can't beat the weather in winter.

What makes this condo unique

After several visits to Ahwatukee we decided it would be nice to have something in the area. When we first saw the Portofino complex we were struck with how much of a resort-like feel it had. The landscaping is beautiful and well maintained, the pools clean and the fitness rooms well equipped. The Ahwatukee area is clean, people are friendly and it has a really nice small town community feel. All of the residents near our unit have been extremely friendly and helpful!

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We found ourselves completely at home in this beautifully decorated and comfortable apartment. The Portofino complex is an excellent location for exploring the surrounding area and we also enjoyed relaxing at the beautiful pool and spa areas. Laura, Bob and Jennifer have created a wonderful and welcoming home away from home!

Great owner, place, and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this condo, both have been great experiences.

The owners are an absolutely pleasure to work with - they are very friendly, professional, and keep the condo in good condition. The place itself is comfortable and has all basic amenities needed for a vacation or longer term stay. The property is nice - good pool area and nice common areas. The location is great, right across the street from a nice lake with a pathway to walk around, and plenty of restaurants nearby.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the condo. Ahwatukee is the best area in Phoenix! Our condo offered the perfect location to become familiar with the Phoenix lifestyle. We enjoyed the big warm pool, and the workout centers. It was novel for us to be able to walk to the grocery store nearby. The condo itself was clean, and well maintained. It offered pleasant touches that were well thought out. For example, we used the feather down comforter almost daily. We used the sound machine to muffle the the morning noises outside if we wanted to sleep late. The owners had prepared a binder with all their favorites in the area. It was a pleasure to work with the owners and their daughter. We couldn't believe how wonderful the hiking is in the area. We could go on a new trail every day! There was always something to do, and the condo was a welcome sight at the end of each great day we were there. This is a third floor unit, but it was worth it for the view of South Mountain. I would highly recommend this condo!

Portofino Condo Great Area

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for the month of Jan. We had never heard of Ahwatukee before but after speaking and emailing with the owners felt it sounded like an area we would like. We loved it! The condo is as described, and is in a well maintained complex in a very pedestrian friendly area. You can walk to grocery stores, restaurants, speciality stores, hair salons, massage/physio clinics and around the lakes! We enjoyed the clean and heated pool and hot tub as Jan had some fantastic weather. The information book provided by Laura & Bob (the owners ) is filled with valuable information and introduced us to our new passion, hiking. The trails in South Mountain Park are awesome! Ahwatukee is just a few minutes to the Premium Outlet Mall, 15 to the airport, 40 to Jobing arena. Our first visit to Phoenix and we were amazed at the efficiency of the incredible freeways and highways. We availed ourselves of the local food seen: breakfast at Cupz & Crepes, dinner at VaBene & Star of India. Game night at CK's Tavern & Grill (they will set a TV to the NHL if you ask), wine tasting at The Wedge & Bottle (across the street from the complex by Trader Joe's) usually 2x month, check their outdoor board for dates. The best food outing would be the Ahwatukee Farmer's Market held every Sun morning (pick up a cup of fresh coffee and a breakfast burrito while there). We bought almost everything we ate here as we embrace every opportunity to support local farmers wherever we go. Now 2 reasons I gave a 4 star not a 5, the first is beyond the owner's control: the condo faces the loading dock for Fry's grocery store and several late nights/early morning the noise from there woke my husband up (I am a deep sleeper so it didn't bother me). Bring earplugs, just in case. The second: the carpet in the condo is spotted and stained and needs a good steam cleaning. We had a fantastic stay and loved this complex. We are hoping to return next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen for your feedback. We take pride in trying to provide the best accommodations possible so your feedback is vey important to us. When our daughter, Jennifer (whom normally cleans the unit) saw the carpets after you departed, she said they looked "horrendous" and immediately addressed the issue. It is unfortunate the substitute cleaning crew we used just prior to your arrival did not mention it to us. As to the shopping center, this is actually the first complaint we've had so we're not sure if there have been schedule changes. There are also 2 sound devices in the bedroom that provide "white noise". In the future we will make sure our guests know they have accessibility to these device options and they should contact us immediately if they have any concerns. Thank you again and we're very pleased you enjoyed the Ahwatukee area and the complex so much!!

Lovely Winter Let

  • 5 of 5

My wife loved our stay in your condo. It is well situated with easy car access to all the sights Phoenix and surrounding area has to offer. The condo was well decorated and contained everything we needed for our monthly stay. We would not hesitate to return on a future trip.

FANTASTIC!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here and the condo had everything we needed. The location was perfect and had all amenities within walking distance. There are two pools at the property and the one at the club house was perfect! The owners and their daughter are very approachable and were available to answer questions for me at a moments notice. We will be back again.

THANKS
