This quiet condominium ground floor home is ideal for small families, traveling nurses & business travelers looking for furnished accommodations, and also retirees who want to spend a glorious month in our welcoming winter sun.

About The Owner

I'm an avid world traveler and Scottsdale is home because of the weather, amenities and friendly people. Ask about a house swap!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Old Town Scottsdale

Arizona is a beautiful, diverse state with the Grand Canyon to the north and Kartchner Caverns to the south, both within a few hours from home.

The condo is in a pleasant complex, very quiet. It is also close to so much of what I enjoy - great food, art galleries, golf, sports, hiking and shopping. Add to that the fabulous weather & it's like a year round vacation at home!

Mountains and amazing desert landscapes surround Scottsdale and the sunsets are so incredible your friends won't believe your photos!

What makes this condo unique

Scottsdale is a wonderful city with terrific weather and tons of things to do from golf to shopping to spring training to great restaurants and nightclubs, pro sports and museums.

A fantastic "home base" for exploring the Phoenix metro

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February in this condo and enjoyed our stay immensely. I agree with pretty much everything that has been said already in other reviews of the property and don't have anything noteworthy that can be added except to say that we were particularly thrilled with the location. It was so easy to get on the 101 Loop to all of the things that the Phoenix area has to offer as well as to all of the shopping, walking, biking and golfing available around Old Town Scottsdale.

We would definitely consider this condo again if/when we return to Arizona.

Wonderful small condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Elloise's condo for January 2017. This is a spotless condo in a very convenient location. Elloise has furnished the condo for comfort - the kitchen is set up for someone who likes to cook, there are spices and cookbooks, three coffee pots, etc. The rest of the small condo has small touches - nightlights, comfortable throws, soap and hair products available to use, discount cards for all the local grocery stores, maps, suggested places to visit and restaurant suggestions as well. It looks like much thought has been put into the furnishing. The condo is also very quiet and we appreciated that. We ate out a lot and especially enjoyed the Herb Box in Scottsdale as well as the Mexican restaurant suggested by Elloise.

Excellent condo in a great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo for the entire month of January 2016. The condo was as described and the previous reviews are spot on. What was not mentioned previously is that the condo was spotless and very comfortable. Elloise provided helpful suggestions for area restaurants, sites, etc. We liked it so much we plan to return.

February Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February in this nicely furnished unit. The condo community was very quiet and the people, friendly. It was a bit of a disappointment that we could not swim in the unheated pool, but there were many places to visit and sights to see, all within driving distance. Old Town Scottsdale is abundant with small art museums, shops, and restaurants. The owner provided some excellent recommendations.

Scottsdale Townhome

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our 13 day trip to the Valley of the Sun. Our Scottsdale townhome was perfect. Nicely furnished, quiet and close to freeway's and activities. The owner provided complete details of how things in the house worked so we didn't have to spend time trying to figure them out. We had a wonderful holiday.

A Very Comfortable Way to Spend Winter

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in December and found the place to be totally ready, very clean and much nicer than the photos indicated. The weather was high 70s and low 80s - so, a perfect start to our Winter in Scottsdale. All of the electronics for entertainment are there and WiFi was available.

This was our first time visiting Arizona and Scottsdale and we found that the area offered lots of variety of things to do. Old Town, galleries, museums, shopping, casinos, heritage sites - you name it, it was there. We are not avid hikers, so didn't participate in what is probably Arizona's number one activity, but there are loads of parks nearby for walking.. We travelled to Yuma and also to Sedona. We'll hit Tucson and areas next trip.

Grocery stores are close and the shopping malls are a short drive. There is a fabulous swap market in Mesa that is so huge, it took us three different visits to get through it and it offers a great array of merchandise and makes for a fun day. The night life offers a great choice of entertainment and the restaurants and pubs give you a choice of fabulous fare. In Chandler, we even found a great dim sum restaurant - something usually not readily available in South-Western desert states. The best pizza, ever, is within walking distance (Sal's Side Door).

The patio is very private and the pool area is seldom used, so finding a chaise lounge for sun tanning was easy. Unfortunately the pool is not heated and was too cold to swim in, even for us hardy Canadian snowbirds (that's why we're snowbirds). Locals told us that hardly anyone heats their pool in Winter unless it is at an expensive resort. The Jacuzzi was very inviting, though.

There is a great choice of golf courses - small, inexpensive ones for the duffer and really great challenging courses for the wannabe PGA pro.

Perhaps the best experience we had staying at the 'home of the fountains' is it is partly occupied by local working young people who are friendly and make you feel that you are part of their community.

We recommend La Casa de Fuente to seniors, small families and anyone who enjoys the dry, sunny Arizona weather with its well-known South-Western hospitality. We loved it for four months.
