Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a dazzling gem of a condo right in the middle of Fountain Hills and all of its fun activities. What we loved best was the decor. The linens were top notch, and we had everything we needed for a fancy party we gave for our new friends. We plan on staying here again for years to come.

Wonderful Fountain Hills Condo

  • 5 of 5

We could not have chosen a better location than Betty's condo. Walkable to downtown, grocery stores and the fountain park. The unit itself was spotless and well appointed with quality furnishings and art work that my wife greatly admired.

This was our first stay with Betty and it is not our last. She was charming, responsive and the consummate hostess. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, candy and flowers upon our arrival. Our month long visit to FH flew by in part because we enjoyed the apartment and waking up to beautiful mountain enhanced sunrises. Truly Folger's moments.

I would highly recommend her location for any length of stay - just not during the time we plan on being there.

Owner's Response: The Minella’s were wonderful, delightful guests. I loved that they, too, appreciated the decor and ‘sweet’ touches. I am thrilled to have them back next year and sm anxious to add a few new art pieces.

A quiet room with a view of the Fountain and the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom condo is the nicest we have had in all the years we have come to rent in FH. It was well furnished and CLEAN. The morning sunrise is spectacular and the little balcony allows for such marvelous views. The AC is very efficient. El Lago traffic is no problem as the condo is up and away from the street. The landlady is amenable to suggestions and wants her tenants to be comfortable. We were. She even had flowers on the table when we arrived!

Beautiful & bright, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay here in Fountain Hills. The area here is new and clean and enjoyed our walk around the fountain every morning. Condo was wonderful and bright and great views of the fountain and the mountains. This was our first experience through VRBO and we would rate it a 10! Thank you.

Delightful Stay in Fountain Hills

  • 5 of 5

We are two seniors from Salem, Oregon who recently returned from a most enjoyable 2-week vacation at Fountain Hills. Thankfully, we were able to land Betty’s centrally located Desert Sage condo for our stay! It is only a few blocks from the downtown shops, restaurants, and the famous Fountain Park – an easy stroll for us and our dog. Also, it has a picturesque vista of the fountain going off every hour, framed by glorious mountains that glow with a pink hue at sunrise and sunset. The condo itself is very bright and airy, comfortably furnished, and equipped with all the necessary accessories and cookware. Little surprises added by Betty (wine, roses, chocolates, breakfast juices) helped to add to the overall ambiance and joy during our vacation.

Of particular note, our booking experience was very expedient and professional. Betty was readily available for any questions, was articulate in her descriptions, and followed up with phone calls to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. With no reservation, I would recommend her condo for either short or extended stays.
