About Ben

Ben was born and raised in England and loves to create warm and inviting places to relax & enjoy. Owner of a Design Build company in Seattle, he has created a home from home with some special touches that will make your stay in Fountain Hills that much more enjoyable.

Ben purchased this house in 2012

Why Ben chose Fountain Hills

I love the Arizona area and wanted a fun getaway with a Hacienda-style feel. I fell in love with the views and created a place that makes you just feel like having a margarita, some poolside guacamole and soaking up some sun (or in the shade) while listening to the coo's of the local birds. I have modeled this home with every little detail to enjoy and relax!

What makes this house unique

You'll love the stunning mountain views, swimming in the pool or seating in the comfortable patio furniture. If you love to cook, you're going to love the kitchen and the open floor plan. There's so much to love in this Mexican-style home.

Fountain Hills is a small, scenic desert community located just east of Scottsdale and about 35 mins from Sky Harbor International Airport. The town is surrounded by mountains with sweeping views including Four Peaks, Superstition Mountains and McDowell Mountains. The setting is a natural desert landscape.

With a name like Fountain Hills, of course there is a fountain. But not just any fountain. Built in 1970, this dramatic landmark is a centerpiece of the town in Fountain Park. The fountain is located in the middle of a man-made 28-acre lake in the heart of Fountain Hills. One of the world's highest fountains, the 560-foot tall plume of water shoots to the sky every hour until 9pm and is visible for many miles.

There are several beautiful golf courses and great restaurants to relax and unwind. You'll find a list available in the home.

There is boating, fishing, horseback riding, golfing and river tubing nearby. It's a lovely place to enjoy!

Adequate but expensive

  • 2 of 5

This property is adequate but it is overpriced. The beds are comfortable. The views are lovely. The pool is a treat. The outdoor grill is welcomed. The kitichen is not a "gourmet" kitchen unless your definition of the same means plastic glasses (wine and otherrwise) and cheap, inadequate pans, silverware, utensils and cooking dishes. We bought decent glasses and cookware to tide us over. The living room is supposed to seat four--except the furniture is broken and worn out and needs to be replaced. We bought furniture from Goodwill when we arrived and returned it before we left. We also brought outdoor furniture inside to help accommodate seating. Not great but not bad. The lighting after sunset is poor. The master bed linens are awful. We had guests from overseas who used the room and we bought new linens for that bed--linens we didn't need but that we took home The house looks to have been re-wired by someone who didn't know what they were doing. Some electrical situations caused us concern. There is a good deal of lipstick and mascara on this home. It is adequate but expensive. I complained to the owner about a couple of issues and was told to post my complaints on Homeaway.

The house was clean and decorated well.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Ben's home. The house was set up for relaxing five days by the pool. The palm trees and mountains in the distance were also nice to view out the living area. The house had everything that we needed. Fountain Hills is also a nice town and the proximity to Scottsdale and Phoenix was perfect for us.

We had a wonderful visit at Ben's home. We will be returning.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to see what August was like in Fountain Hills. We enjoyed it immensely due to the comfort of the house, the pool, the quiet neighborhood, and the fan outside made it very comfortable each evening to sit outside and watch the clouds form over the mountains to the east of the house. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. The location is convenient to shopping, Starbucks, and local restaurants. We will certainly return.

Comfortable, homey and it fit our needs perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

'Caliente' house fit our needs perfectly. My 4 best friends from college (class of 1978/79) visited from the east coast so we could all celebrate 40 years of friendship and our respective 60th birthdays. My family and I live in Fountain Hills, but our 3br home was too small to house everyone and a hotel seemed too impersonal. 'Caliente' gave us a place to stretch out and enjoy ourselves with minimal worries. My friends particularly enjoyed Ft. McDowell Adventures Trail Riding and we also had a blast at Fountain Hills Youth Theater (my daughter was student director:)).
