Regardless if you like to watch or play sports we've got you covered. At the end of a busy and playful day, you can relax in the backyard with a drink in hand and a little something on the grill to curb the hunger while the kids jump in the backyard pool or you can take advantage of the larger pool at our clubhouse that has both Jacuzzi and shallow sided pool.

About Greg & Lili

We are empty Nesters -

We've discovered life's greatest pleasures ...hanging out with each other and exploring the beauty this state has to offer. With the best hiking, golfing, biking, shopping and casinos to choose from. Best of all is having the love of your life to enjoy life and great food with. Life doesn't get any better!

Greg & Lili purchased this house in 2015

Why Greg & Lili chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village

In 2008 when we first discovered Ahwatukee we never thought we would be able to own such a beautiful little piece of heaven. When we first saw the property amidst all its wild green scenery we saw a diamond in the rough. We bought it, loved it, polished it and now ready for y'all to enjoy!

With high vaulted Ceilings, flagstone backyard patio, private sparking pool and so much more...

Our State has so much to offer, however soft water is not one of them. We've installed an electronic salt-less water softener along with many upgrades for your vacation pleasure.

The community of the Ahwatukee foothills is special in a way that you can be in the middle of busy night life just minutes away or enjoy a quiet night in our backyard sanctuary.

Our home is minutes away from restaurants, casinos, freeways (I-10) and shopping centers. If your a vegan, in the mood for some Tex-Mex or just want to try something new, you name it we got it within minutes and in some cases walking distance from the house!

We take pride in serving our guest, our home and our community.

What makes this house unique

Our home is centrally located to the wondrous beauty that Phoenix has to offer here is a small sampling of what you'll be close to in our home.

Sculling, paddle boarding or just a slow boat ride along our beautiful Tempe Town Lakes.

Hiking Day trips ~ Shadow Mountain Trail, Aravaipa Creek, Weavers Needle trail are just a few options for hiking and the natural beauty. AllTraills.com is a great resource to search out your special day trip.

Or you can walk out the front door and be on a hiking trail within a ten minute walk.

Feeling lucky?... want to try your hand at blackjack or poker we have several casinos (Wild Horse Pass, Lone Butte, Gila River) within a 20 - minutes drive.

If you're a golfer we have some of the most beautiful courses - many with first-hand knowledge.

If you're into baseball we have Cubs stadium minutes away.

Our home has an open feel, so we knocked out a wall and created a jaw dropping scene from the moment you walk into the kitchen from the garage all the way backyard pool. Its sunny, inviting, relaxing and absolutely fabulous.

Once your done with your daily adventure come home; pop open a bottle of wine, throw something on the grill and enjoy life in our little private sanctuary we call our back yard. With the calm water falling and soft tunes in the background and people who love you ..... life doesn't get any better!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to the Foothills and Greg and Lili's place was the perfect base for all of our activities.

They responded immediately to any of our questions/needs. The house is very well appointed in a beautiful neighborhood! Our family will be staying here again on our next trip to The Foothills!

Your home was everything I hoped for. So clean and comfortable. The hiking trails and the ability to travel to Sedona and the Grand Canyon and be able to return to your place to relax was perfect. Only wished the pool was heated so were could have enjoyed it.

Thank you for having us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Yes; the hiking in our state is unbelievably beautiful however, we've yet to do a lot in Sedona I can't wait till we try it. We are looking at possibly changing out the pool to a heated one in the near future. Aside this we are so happy to hear you were able to enjoy some key locals of our state. Looking forward to your next visit.

Clean modern home

  • 5 of 5

My daughter & I stayed here over Thanksgiving, we enjoyed the peaceful back yard over breakfast most days. Instructions, codes and lots of information was sent before we came. Two very private bedrooms, one up and one down with full baths were very nice.

Nice community pool and hot tub, we didn't use them but they are just around the corner from the house. Felt very safe with the gated community. Lili & Greg are always in touch, even left wine! I think it's a great place to stay.

I have stayed in the general area before because of the close shopping and parks, trails even the YMCA.

Owner's Response: Thank you Linda for your kind words, we thoroughly enjoy our community and what it has to offer. You are minutes away from the shops and restaurants but once you're inside the home it feels like you're in your own little sanctuary. We would love to have you come back soon. Greg & Lili

This home was immaculate and the owners did not hesitate to make our stay amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Lili have a gorgeous home that was perfect for my husband and I to be able to relax since we came for medical reasons. It was a place we felt very comfortable in and the home had everything we needed and more. The pool was a bonus for the hot days we endured while in Phoenix as my husband and I are not used to such heat! We must have been in it everyday! We will definitely stay here again, you won't regret renting this home and the owners made it even better staying in touch when we had questions and making sure we had everything we needed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Greg and Lili!! We may be back for Mayo Clinic soon and know where to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you two so much for choosing our home for your stay, we appreciate your kind words and we'd love to have you stay in our home again. More importantly we'd love to have you all stay here without the need of visiting the Mayo clinic and we pray for your speedy recovery. We will insure your subsequent stays are just as positive and will continue to work to make sure we deliver a positive experience each time.

This house was absolutely lovely, but I would not recommend it if you're staying with your family (especially children) the house is apparently fragile and you mostly won't get your deposit back if something is "damaged". Owners were lovely until after check out, we needed more soft pillows and within the hour Lilli came over to the house which we thought was very good. The floors upstairs are bamboo so ideally no one should actually stay upstairs because clearly it's meant for show. We ended up using the community pool which was 100 times better than the private pool. The private pool might be better for children but for adults it's like a pond. The gated community is lovely, it is quite far from downtown Phoenix but it's easy if you have a car. I would've liked to write a good review but I will not be recommending this place as there's probably better ones out there

Owner's Response: Manisha, We're sorry that you didn't totally enjoy your stay, however, we do everything possible to ensure all our customers have the best stay possible and up to this point have hit the mark each time. We're accommodating and go above and beyond to make sure each group has a safe, clean and great place to call their temporary home. In order to do that we diligently strive to ensure our home is prepped and readied after each visit for the next customer and were extremely surprised by the care, you and your party did not take regarding the flooring in the property. The flooring is not simply to look at as the entire home is a functioning residence to enjoy by all as we do ourselves at intervals throughout the year in order to ensure it's livability. We have never had to withhold a damage deposit due to damages but in your case, we had to as we are forced to have a contractor come back in and replace part of the flooring that was damaged. As for the pool, unfortunately, the size of the backyard does not allow for a larger pool however as you stated the community pool is an outstanding choice for swimming laps or if you have a larger party that needs to enjoy a pool. Again we're sorry you and your party did not enjoy all aspects of your stay and we appreciate your input as it helps us to better understand what may be needed as we interface with future customers. Greg & Lili

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a getaway for just the two of us - and this home was ideal. Location in Ahwatukee was close to plenty of places to eat, shop and visit. Lili and Greg were very obliging with our questions before and during our stay. We would definitely choose this lovely home again.

During your stay you can make it as busy or as laid back as you'd like. We are minutes away from the local night life, casinos, restaurants and sporting events. Yet nestled back enough that it lends itself to a quiet night of constellation watching in the back yard while enjoying your private pool area.

Note: For greater accessibility to all the attractions that Phoenix has to offer Loop 202 formerly know as Pecos Road is getting completed, finishing touches will happen this year (2017).
