About the property

Furnished 2BR/2Bath ground floor condo

Ideal for snowbirds. Available for 2018 snowbird season for as low as $7200 starting January 2nd. 6 month rental period - contact owner for details. Bright, clean, contemporary condo - located in more of a neighborhood community than a resort. Next to the Sonoran Preserve Trail for daily hikes. Perfect for snowbirds or short-term furnished housing needs in the Phoenix area. Out of the hustle bustle and traffic of downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale (30 minutes north of airport), yet close enough to partake in all the metro area can offer. Top that off with great shopping nearby. Fireside has a 16,000 foot first class community center with fitness classes, 2 pools, and tons of community activities.

Nicely furnished Ground Floor 2 BR with King in MBR, twin that converts to King in 2nd Br, sleeper sofa in LR, and even a portable crib. Well stocked with linens and kitchen supplies. 1 car garage, patio with sliders from Great Room and MBR, separate laundry room, lots of cabinet storage.

About Sally Gerber

We are Michiganders with kids on the west coast - so we decided to invest in our retirement property now while we can enjoy meeting our families for occasional gatherings in the sun. My husband is an architect who appreciates a well planned community and I work with a team of software developers here in Grand Rapids so I need an occasional break.

Sally Gerber purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sally Gerber chose Phoenix

We look forward to retiring here someday, but in the meantime we visit when we are able with friends and family.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location AND amenities, amenities, amenities. Specifically, we love the desert setting and mountain views - but when my daughters visit we are going SHOPPING. Scottsdale is crazy busy, but amazing. And did we mention that snow skiing is only 2 hours away???

Perfect Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo - convenient to Phoenix, Scottsdale, Anthem, and north of Phoenix. The condo was spotless when we arrived and had every amenity needed for a vacation or extended stay. Very comfortably furnished and in a great location for families or really anyone. Easy walk to miles and miles of hiking trails through the Sonoran Desert Preserve - some of the most beautiful sunsets! Community center includes a wonderful pool, gym, and many other amenities. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone needing a place to stay in Phoenix!

Lovely Experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the past month in your lovely condo. It is nicely appointed. We took advantage of the printer and also appreciated the fact there was a bike available for riding with an odometer! A washer and dryer on site is a very nice perk. Other perks we enjoyed were the DVD player, Roku, the WIFI, and the very nice community center. The Sonoran Preserve, just a block away, is a true treasure. Loop D is a 5-mile hike and the views are amazing. While here we enjoyed an afternoon on the Verde Canyon Railroad, the Desert Botanical Gardens, and art museum. Convenient shopping nearby was a big plus. Also liked the $1.50 Tuesdays at the movie theater on Bell Avenue! Hope we can do this again.
