About Eric and Jeannette Stewart

We bought this home to bring our family to from Maryland and we have many special memories here with our family and friends. We love the slower pace of Fountain Hills but enjoy the proximity to Phoenix and Scottsdale. We have 5 children and Eric runs a successful real estate practice in the metro Washington D.C. area. We enjoy escaping the city to the mountains and climate of Arizona and have not found another home in Fountain Hills with this view and setting. 10 out of 10 for convenience and getting away from it all! We hope you enjoy your stay.

Eric and Jeannette Stewart purchased this house in 2005

Why Eric and Jeannette Stewart chose Fountain Hills

This newly renovated home (2018) is truly a retreat from everyday life, every day you are there. The 46 foot long pebble tec lap pool in the front sits on one of the best perches in the valley. The stone hot tub flows in to the pool and is covered by the lanai. The master opens to the lanai as does the kitchen and family room. An open air sentry retreat on the roof of the garage affords views in all four directions and is a great gathering place in the evening for a cocktail.

What makes this house unique

You will find many homes with some kind of view. To be able to capture the fountain and all the mountain views of the valley from one lot is rare. Add a 400 square foot lanai and an unbelievable pool with waterfall feature as the cherry on top. The pool and hot tub can be heated by purchasing propane form a local same day delivery service. Looking to do something fun nearby? Only 5 minutes to great golfing, tennis, restaurants and shopping in the town of Fountain Hills, and only 15 minutes to many attractions in Scottsdale/Phoenix.

Amazing view and awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location is ideal, the view is spectacular, the property is well maintained and recently remodeled. The pool and hot tub are amazing. The owners Eric and Jeanette along with their property manager Linda were very helpful and provided immediate response to our needs and questions. We liked it so much we have already booked our vacation for next year.

We enjoyed our stay in this house because of the amazing view. The sunrises and sunsets were awesome. We entertained on the patio and really enjoyed being able to see the fountain. Eric(the owner) was very helpful if we had any questions.

Expectations and disappointment

  • 2 of 5

This property gets 2 stars because of the nice pool and the views towards Four Peaks and the fountain. Everything else we consider a run down property with careless maintenance, cheap appliances, missing TLC (tender loving care), broken patio furniture, peeling off of paint and a not at all welcome feeling when you enter the home. - We arrived after having driven 3400 miles in 5 days, but still at daylight, which was favorable given the fact that the key to the house is in a lockbox at the rear entrance, which makes you walk uphill/downhill over gravel to the rear patio, which could be an adventure at nighttime. There was no bathroom tissue, no Kleenex, no kitchen paper towels, no (clean) towels, the A/C was turned off (inside temp at 90F), no hair dryer, flip flops and dirty socks on the hearth, rotten food in the fridge, more dirty clothing in the walking closet and garbage bags filled with dirty laundry all over the house. The next day a new cleaning crew was called in and it took them hours to at least get the inside liveable, while sending pictures to the owner about burn stains in sinks (this is a non smoking property, but we found cigarette buds all over the place) and the overall condition of the house. - Stained food on plates and a pan was sitting in the dishwasher, and in the cabinets. We bought towels for the bathroom and kitchen and got reimbursed for them and a reimbursement for the inconvenience which was less than the cleaning fee that we were charged. We managed with ONE pool towel! There are no cushions for the patio furniture and the outside dining chairs give a feeling of rocking chairs, but they are simply worn out, others have torn lining. Out of the three sliding patio doors two were jammed/unusable. - There is a plumbing problem at the kitchen sink because one day we had clear water coming up, sitting in the sink and ended up sitting in the dishwasher, having rusty baskets/trays, which is disgusting in itself. - We used the kitchen only for preparing basic breakfast and went out for dinner. Dinnerware and glassware are less than basic. - The internet connection is fast but breaks down frequently on a daily basis and needs to be rebooted every time. - This 11 day stay at this property was overall disgusting and, when renting through VRBO ever again, we first check out a property while staying at a hotel, we travel during shoulder season where this is possible.

Owner's Response: I thank this traveler for their candid feedback. Unfortunately, their arrival was much as they present it and this was due to two circumstances- a charlatan tenant who not only stole form the property but who left the house horribly a mess and the failure of the regular cleaning crew to prepare the home consistent with their prior performance. They were henceforth not retained again. Upon learning of the issue, I had the home detailed by an industrial outfit the day after the arrival and refunded money for the inconvenience and for towels which the tenant bought for their stay. Following their exit, the property was detailed again, repairs made, and any other missing items were restocked. New policies have been instituted to assure the house is better prepared for the arrival of our guests.

Quiet, comfortable, relaxing and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been vacationing in the Phoenix area for over 8 years now. Over the years we have grown to like the Fountain Hills area. We like to hike and mountain bike so staying within 30 minutes of some of the best trails in the valley was very convenient. We were looking for a home to rent in Fountain Hills that had a pool, privacy, view and was quiet and comfortable. Eric's home met all our criteria and we were very pleased with our decision. The two weeks went by all too quickly, but we enjoyed every minute. The home is very neat and clean, nicely furnished and has a nice southwest Arizona feel in what we thought was a perfect location. The neighborhood was quiet, safe and the people we met in the community very friendly. We spent hours in the pool and out on the deck soaking up the sun and the view which was outstanding. You can see the famous fountain from the deck which looks amazing in the evening under the stars. There are some really good restaurants in the local area within a 5-minute drive from the house. There are a few Supermarkets close by as well...we liked Fry's. Scottsdale is a short 20 minute drive away if you want to take in a movie, shop or site see. Driving up/down the steep driveway was no problem at all in our SUV. My driveway at home is similar, so I felt right at home. Eric was very responsive when we had questions or needed assistance. We can't wait to go back again....loved it.
