About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 1st Floor, Perfect For Those Looking For Leisure Living!

Our very well maintained first floor condo has everything that makes for a vacation and stay to remember! Located in a lake development, you can choose to rent a car to travel the state, or opt to shuttle from the airport and never need a vehicle again. Upscale to family style restaurants are within walking distance, and even more are just a short bike ride away.

The condo is in a resort style complex with 2 pools (1 heated for all year use), 2 hot tubs, 2 well equipped fitness facilities, a Club House, propane BBQ grills (1 within 100 feet of the condo), and covered parking. You may also choose to sip your coffee or enjoy a glass of wine on the patio that is furnished with a table and chairs.

We also own and reside in the larger housing development of Lakewood and have mountain bikes, road bikes, golf clubs, wagons, and tennis racquets that we are happy to provide with an additional deposit (for most items upon request) and very reasonable rental fee for the bike rentals.

The condo is fully stocked with adult and children board games, dvd player, and DVR to keep you entertained while indoors.

Each guest will be provided a complimentary bottle of wine from our favorite vineyard on Cayuga Lake! In our opinion, the wine is simply the best!

Let us know if you need any help creating an itinerary, or of you are foodies like us. We would be more than happy to provide information to make your stay a spectacular one!

For those that like additional Direct TV packages, please let us know. For an additional fee, we can add various movie packages upon request.

Wifi for internet use. We can set up a pc if you prefer to travel without your own electronics.

About Jennifer

After falling in love with all that Arizona had to offer, we relocated from NY in 2000. We chose Lakewood, in Ahwatukee, for our active lifestyle and the central location that allowed us to enjoy leisurely living, when we are not working. We could not beat proximity to hiking, biking, shopping, eating, you name it!

We enjoy traveling and finding hidden gems and great eats. Though we travel all over the world, we find that there is no place like home and all of the natural wonders of Arizona! In fact, the condo has many items from a few of our many adventures or you may notice my amateur attempts to oil paint some of the locations.

Jennifer purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

Having traveled to many locations, most often using VRBO and Homeaway for our stays, we believe that we are able to provide those who would like to visit Arizona a great experience. We enjoy our own condo for 'staycations,' use the fitness facilities daily, and hope that our classically styled condo will provide travelers with a central location to relax when not out adventuring!

We are able to provide many active lifestyle items that allow you to bring just your bags and personal items.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this condo.

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo. We have stayed here three times and really enjoy the whole experience. The complex is lovely with two lovely pools, two gyms, BBQ area just across the pathway to the condo. Lots of places to shop within walking distance, coffee shops etc. It is in a beautiful area with a community lake that makes for lovely walks. Jennifer is great to work with and I would highly recommend this condo for a great relaxing holiday in a lovely, friendly atmosphere.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience using VRBO. We had some questions regarding this condo and the process which we sent to the owner, Jennifer. She responded quickly and was a great help. The condo was clean, nicely decorated with thoughtful touches, has Wi-Fi, cable TV in living room, and washer & dryer. The unit is on the inside of the complex so we enjoyed sitting out on the patio to eat or read. The entire complex was nicely landscaped & well maintained. It was quiet and in a great location. There are grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, shops, etc. very close by without seeming like you were in a commercial area. There are nice areas to walk and South Mountain is only 10 min. away for hiking. If you go around to the other side of South Mountain there are even more, paved hiking trails, a visitors center & the Mystery Castle which was fun & gives an interesting guided tour for only $10 per person. If you want shopping there's an Outlet Mall within 10 min. or the Chandler Mall is a really nice, new mall a short easy drive away with major restaurants and movie theatres around it. If you like going to the casinos there are several close by. Access to anything is easy from this location as it's 5 min. away from Interstate 10 or the 202. We had a question when we arrived at the condo and another when we were leaving and again Jennifer responded quickly. We would definitely stay here again.

Cozy condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to come back or to recommend to friends or family. The condo was well equipped and clean when we arrived and is exactly as advertised. It was surprisingly quiet at night, which allowed for a good rest on the comfy bed. We loved walking on the paths by the lake in the morning.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this lovely condo. This is the second year we have stayed here and would have booked for next year but it had already been booked. The location can not be beaten - close to shops and local restaurants. The Portofino Condos are superb with amazing facilities. The pools are excellent and well maintained. The condo has everything you could need and the owners are great to work with.
