Outstanding stay at Fountain of the Sun

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The condo was immaculate, beautifully decorated with high quality furnishings and fully equipped with everything you need for a home away from home! We would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone. The processes to reserve, arrival and departure instructions were all easy to understand and complete. A very nice community with very nice people. The owners are extremely nice and very accommodating. The listing photos and description were accurate.

Amazing Mesa Patio Home - VRBO

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This two bedroom/two bathroom patio home with a pool just 30 steps from the patio was absolutely perfect. The home was spotlessly clean, the kitchen was extremely well equipped (even a pizza cutter!), plenty of towels etc. even swimming towels. Full size (in suite) laundry facilities, A/C and covered parking. Thanks very much for sharing your vacation home with us, we unfortunately couldn't stay in Mesa as long as we wanted to this year, but we will be back, and hopefully will stay in this unit again. We have already recommended this rental to friends.

Thanks again - Bill & Sandy Shearer

Nice Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Excellent location for a vacation. Good security at the gate and safety on the roads around the property as well as lots of friendly people.

The condo is located right next to a year round pool. The pool is kept at a constant temperature so it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The condo itself is well laid out with a marvelous sleeping area with an en-suit bathroom and walk in closet. It has an excellent kitchen with modern appliances and lots of cooking pots and pans and dishes. It is just like home for most of us.

There are many attractions in the park such as a small restaurant, workout room and large pool at the main office area where there are such things as yoga classes and weekly bingo.

The park is home to a very nice golf course as well so bring your cart if you are interested.

We are sitting at the airport waiting for our flight and already missing our 'home away from home'! Staying at your vacation rental was a very pleasant surprise for us, especially since we have never done this before. Mr. and Mrs. Szabo has a very well appointed condo and having the pool just steps away from the door was a big plus. It was clean and had everything you could want, including a nice neighbor! The condo was also centrally located for all our needs. Thank you, we do hope to come back again soon! Linda and Jerry Allen

Everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We enjoyed our time at Fountain of the Sun. Our condo had everything we needed. The appliances were nice and worked perfectly. The bed was comfy and all the linens, dishes, & silverware were plentiful. We liked being so close to the pool. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The resort has many activities that we also enjoyed.

Needs attention to details

First, it's important to say how relaxing our stay was and how comfortable and quiet the condo was (except for those darned doves). That said . . .

1. While we especially enjoyed the proximity to the pool, our timing was bad -- the pool guy had just been replaced and the new one hadn't started yet, so the pool and its deck and furniture needed cleaning. Also, there never was anyone available to remove the nighly covering of the pool. Glad my husband is strong. Not the owner's fault but a disappointment nonetheless as part of the reason for choosing this property was being steps from the pool.

2. The presence of so many birds caused the pool deck and furniture to be dirtied and unappealing because of bird and rabbit poop. Besides that, the birds were especially loud while we never heard a peep from the bunnies.

2. There was no way in which to check-in to our flight. We had to find a pack 'n ship store in order to print our boarding passes; the office for the communities claimed not to have wi-fi. They weren't at all helpful.

3. The condo was nicely decorated but lacked those "little touches", like games or even a deck of cards; books or magazines; dvd's. Channels listed as being availble on the tv were not available after all.

4. Amazingly the kitchen lacked a pizza cutter but otherwise had the basics and plenty of nice flatware and dishes.

5. I would've appreciated a bar of soap in the showers although I liked the presence of liquid handsoap in the baths and kitchen.

6. The toilet paper and kleenex were cheap and rough, definitely not in keeping with the classy presentation of the condo in general. .

7. Unable to access the owners through VRBO to ask questions. Very frustrating and disappointing.

Owner's Response: First I am sorry about several things, family medical took front stage in my life and for that reason I was busy and not checking VRBO as often as I should for that I am sorry. Second the Doves are a problem if they you keep up noise they tend to stay away. I have spoken to Karen about placing a Pizza Cutter in the kitchen. Please accept our apology and give us a another chance Joe
