About Tom Nielsen and Pat Campbell

Tom and Pat are owners of this beautiful home. We purchased it because of the great feeling it has both inside and out. We plan to spend some quality time there each year and would love to share our great find with you. We both are very active seniors from Seattle and fell in love with Fountain Hills and its diverse interests. You will not get bored here as everything is a short drive away. Great places to walk/hike and this area has great fresh air open spaces to visit. We welcome you to our getaway, you deserve the best.

Why Tom Nielsen and Pat Campbell chose Fountain Hills

Fountain hills is home to the Fountain Park, a 64 acre passive recreation area that includes 35 acres of grass and trees, a child's playground, picnic tables, plenty of parking and the 'worlds highest' fountain shooting over 500 feet into the air every hour for you to enjoy. Just 25 minutes from 2 airports, you can be at the front door and enjoying your time away without the stress of a long traffic filled commute after you have landed. Lots of Golf courses for your daytime play and Vegas Style Shows at the casino at night will keep you filled with fit and fun entertainment. Come see for yourself !

What makes this house unique

Not only did we fall in love with the open feeling of this home with high ceilings, the privacy is perfect for peaceful relaxing. With a vast open space behind the home, it feels as if the backyard goes on forever. This is a must experience for your family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I feel this review requires some additional information to give the reader an accurate understanding of the home. This renter arrive on Wed. June 26, which is typically warm in the Phoenix Area. The home is a two story, equipped with two air conditioners, controled by two thermostats. On Friday night, June 28 the renter informed me that earlier that afternoon, the upstairs air conditioner stopped working. Saturday morning I called service companies in the area and the earliest one could come was Tuesday morning, July 2 (the day the renter was leaving). The unit was repaired that day and has been working effectively to date. I advised the renter of the timing for the repair and he told me that was not really a problem as the larger air conditioner for the first floor living area was working well and able to keep that floor temperture near 70 degrees and they had solved the upstairs higher temperture by bring down one of the mattresses to the first floor. Until this review came in two months after their departure, I was unaware of the frustration. I do regret the failure of one of the airconditioning units during their stay, but I immeditely arranged to have it repaired at the earliest time possible.



The backyard swimming pool is under year around maintence contract with weekly serevice plus the pool is equipped with daily self cleaning vacuum and a skimmer to remove any flower pedals or leaves that may be blown into the backyard with the wind. I assume there must have been some windy days during their stay for flower pedals or leaves to be in the pool. However, if/when that happens, there is a pool skimmer net that anyone can clean any leaves or pedals in one or two minutes if they do not want to wait for the pool filter to remove the leaves. Unless someone has an indoor pool, there will be flower pedals or leaves on the pool surface after a wind. The backyard pool area is very private, surrounded by tall flowering shrubs on two sides that give the sense of total privacy. I believe this out weighs the prospects of occasionally have flower pedals or a leaf on the surface of the pool. Tom, (owner).

Fabulous home with a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my group has stayed at Tom’s home. The house is always well maintained and perfect for my group of friends to get together in the Phoenix area and play golf. My group appreciates the comfortable beds and sensibly decorated home and patio. Tom does a great job communicating prior to your arrival and makes sure any issues are addressed quickly. I highly recommend this property!

Family friendly with two great strollers, high chairs, pack and play for sleeping. Great location in nice neighborhood. The property owners are very pleasant to work with. We would definitely rent this home again!

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed! We arrived in Phoenix early and stopped by the house to drop off some luggage and groceries before check-in. The cleaning crew was wonderful and let us sit by the pool until they were finished. The house was perfectly clean and smelled wonderful!! The beds were all comfy, plenty of towels and kitchen was fully equipped. We couldn't get the oven to work but the microwave was a convection and worked great for all the baking that we needed! The pool and hot tub were fabulous too!! My husband loved the outdoor grilling area! We spent most evenings sitting on the patio, looking at the stars! If we ever make it back to this area again, we will definitely try to rent this home again!! Tom was super helpful and responded quickly to all of our emails. It was one of the best family vacations we've taken in a while!!!! Highly, highly recommend!!!

Beautiful Private Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect layout for our group of 4 couples. The backyard pool area was amazing and the property is very private. The neighborhood is very quiet and conveniently located for quick drives to golf, hiking, groceries etc. Tom was great to deal with, the home was well stocked and very comfortable.....just wish our stay was longer. Would love to book again!
