An easy one-mile walk to scenic Fountain Park, four miles from Fort McDowell Casino, seven miles (13 min) from the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, 14 miles from West World, and 15 miles from the Salt River Fields, this spacious and efficient 2-bd, 1.5 BA, two-story condominium is close to everything that the quaint city of Fountain Hills and the surrounding area have to offer. Located in Fountain Hills’ Historic District, your home-away-from-home was completely remodeled in 2015 from the studs up. Among the improvements are everything you would expect not only from a well-equipped vacation rental, but also in your own well-appointed personal home - and that's because the condo owners stay here as well and treat it like a home - because it is. As a guest, you will enjoy aesthetic touches like crown molding, brand new stainless steel appliances, a stunning glass vessel sink in the powder and an ample undermount sink in the bathroom, comfortable, well-lit seating for reading, dining, and relaxing, and dimmer switches throughout. A hall linen closet and three bedroom closets provide plenty of storage. Both upstairs bedrooms have king size beds with 500+ count linens. The combined tub/shower has a curved curtain rod for extra elbow room, and both bath towels and pool towels are provided. There is a large, 60-inch television downstairs equipped with a WiFi-capable blu-ray/DVD player through which you can watch cable TV, your favorite RedBox movie rental, and stream your favorite shows. A wireless ePrinter is also provided so you can print your boarding passes and ball game tickets from your smart phone in the comfort of your vacation home. The kitchen comes fully stocked with microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, pots and pans, flatware and cooking utensils, and place settings and glassware for 4-8 people. Acrylic beverage ware is also included for enjoying drinks at the nearby community pool. Perhaps the most notable luxury of this 967-square foot condo is its spacious 230-square foot outdoor, fully fenced, slate and landscaped patio with a Northern exposure and wide, park-like open-space views of lawn, trees, and McDowell Mountain in the distance. Relax on the patio, which features a table, coffee table, chairs, umbrella, and gas barbeque grill, while watching the wildlife regulars of doves, quail, and the occasional javalina. A one-car, covered parking space is located around the corner from the front door, and several visitor parking spaces are always available just adjacent to that. The laundry room, with a coin-operated washer and dryer, which is shared by your 4-unit complex, is immediately adjacent to the patio, so it couldn't be more convenient to do your laundry while you continue with your regular activities inside the condo or outside on the patio. Additional must-haves included with your condo are ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms, a first-aid kit, fire extinguisher, flashlight, a power-out kit, and board games. If you decide to make your stay with us an extended one, we will also provide a weekly cleaning service to tidy up and refresh the linens during your stay. With all the amenities that this vacation getaway provides, you won't HAVE to leave home, but if you do, you can be assured, you'll have a nice place to return home to at the end of the day!

About Carolyn or Sandy
This condo is owned by two couples who each live in California. Carolyn and John live in North San Diego County, and Sandy and Tony live in the central region of Visalia. The couples became friends when Sandy and Carolyn met in college and have been sharing leisure activities ever since. When Carolyn and John began making regular trips to the Scottsdale area for equestrian activities and to visit family, and when Sandy and Tony began making regular trips to enjoy spring training and all things baseball around the Phoenix area, the four decided to go in on a condo together which they could enjoy year-round. Local friends took Carolyn to lunch one day in Fountain Hills and she was immediately drawn to the community, the laid-back lifestyle, its beauty and serenity, and the FOUNTAIN! It wasn’t long after that the four became owners and part-time residents of Fountain Hills. Carolyn is a researcher, data analyst, and avid equestrienne, John is in new-home sales, Sandy counsels students at a university, and Tony is retired from a career in computer technology and enjoying taking classes in horticulture.
Carolyn or Sandy purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Carolyn or Sandy chose Fontana
The Northern exposure of this property provides plenty of sunlight on the patio and in all rooms, without baking you in direct sunlight. It has a large, fenced patio so you have plenty of outdoor space to relax and entertain, while keeping any little ones safe from roaming. There is an expansive community open space in front of the unit so the setting is like being in a park with lawn and trees, not sandwiched between buildings and concrete. You also have views of McDowell Mountain in the distance. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the unit and direct access to laundry. The complex is quiet, well maintained, and well manicured. The pool area is a short walk and has lots of space.
What makes this Condo unique
This property was remodeled this year, so although it's in a more established complex, it feels very current and is well appointed with modern appliances and contemporary furnishings.
Pool / Spa

The place was very clean and comfortable. Just as advertised. We would certainly stay here again.
Great spot learn a little more with each trip
Saw three spring training games and two rounds of golf. Wasn't at the condo but to sleep
Great Condo as Advertised
Fountain Hills is a really nice community outside of Phoenix that allows you to get away from it all in the Arizona dessert. The location is great, easy access to grocery store and other stores. Easy access to Phoenix via Shea Blvd. through Scottsdale. The furnishings were nice and the kitchen was set up with everything you need to make meals, just buy the groceries. The condo complex was quiet and parking was convenient to the door. Neighbors were friendly too! Carolyn was very responsive to any questions and the local management company was helpful as well. Seriously consider this place without any concerns, you will be well taken care of for you stay in the area.
We called this home a townhouse, because the bedrooms were upstairs and gave me a quiet place to go and read, away from TV. The owners provided EVERYTHING we needed in a home away from home. Extra blankets, quality towels and linens, cleaning supplies, good kitchen utensils, etc. We were greeted with a bag of coffee and a bottle of wine..Nice! The comfortable king sized beds were a welcome treat after a day of hiking in the mountains. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. The owners were extremely cooperative and professional, and addressed questions immediately. We liked the Euro restaurant, but would not recommend Monroe's. If we needed a 2 bedroom, we would be returning without any hesitation in 2017. We loved our month in this home.
Conveniently located near the Scottsdale Mayo Clinic, WestWorld, Chase Field (Home of the Arizona Diamondbacks professional baseball), Salt River Fields, talking Stick Resort Arena (home of the Phoenix Suns professional basketball), ASU, U of A.
