About Jane

We hope you enjoy your stay at the Mini Mansion.

Jane purchased this house in 2004

Why Jane chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

Location location location. While this home is nicely furnished and attractive inside it is proximity to South Mountian that makes it special. Backing up to the nature preserve allows for spectacular sunsets, trail access and entertainment watching hikers and mountain bikers in the distance.

What makes this house unique

We call this home the Mini Mansion. It seems appropriate as it is a cute little house with a million dollar view. The large patio is like another large living space in the mild Arizona winters. The patio is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a sunset glass of wine or Chinese takeout.

Perfect Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Mini Mansion was the perfect place for us to unwind and enjoy a relaxing vacation. Bob and Jane were great hosts and took great care to ensure we had everything we needed. The patio was wonderful for sitting at night and enjoying a glass of wine. It was also nice during the day to watch the hikers and bikers on South Mountain. Access to the trails was only a few houses down the street. The kitchen was nicely equipped and I loved the large walk in closet in the master bedroom. It had plenty of hangers (much appreciated) and a dresser and mirror. Felt like my private dressing room. The house was in a nice location and close to Phoenix, Scottsdale and only 2 1/2 hours from Sedona. We would definitely recommend staying at this beautiful home.

Our stay was so fantastic. The hiking was literally right off the back of the home. This home was locate in a very nice residential setting and close to shopping and restaurants and the expressway. The owners were very easy to deal with and personable. Hiking was GREAT! The home was clean and the owners were close by.

Cozy and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful and peaceful setting. We loved sitting on the patio early morning and evening especially. It is like the mountain comes alive with bikers, hikers, and families with dogs. The nature is spectacular. We saw many birds and were graced with a new Quail family who had 11 very tiny babies with them. The owners are near if you have any needs. It is very close to anything you need like groceries, restaurants. We were excited to find a washer and dryer also. I can't say enough of how peaceful it is even though in a neighborhood. We enjoyed it so much and recommend it to anyone coming to Phoenix. Thanks Jane and Bob for sharing this gem with us.

Wonderful combination of nature and urban life

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental for anyone who wants the peace and beauty of a wonderful mountain preserve along with great access to southwest urban life. The owners live nearby and are extremely helpful and responsive, directing us to fantastic restaurants, services, and outdoor activities. Our dogs loved it as much as we did and so did the grandchildren we came to visit. Kitchen is well-equipped, patio is lovely and trails are literally out the door.
