This two story house in Ahwatukee with million dollar views backing on to South Mountain Park is unlike most Phoenix homes which have neighbors on 3 sides; this house has only have 1 neighbor as the park trail access is on the other side and the only neighbors behind the house are the visiting quail, hummingbirds, roadrunners and rabbits.
There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom overlooks South Mountain Park and features a queen sized bed. The second bedroom features two twin beds and the third bedroom has a full size futon and desk. So the house will comfortably sleep 5, possibly 6 if two stay in the third bedroom. There is also a mattress available that I kept from a sleeper sofa which could be placed on the floor or the balcony for sleeping, making the house accomodate 6 or even 7. The ground level has a spacious living room, dining room (seats 6) and a beautiful kitchen that has a spectacular view of the mountains. The breakfast nook also has a mountain view. A selection of fine complimentary coffees and teas are provided so you can enjoy a leisurely morning beverage with a great view from the breakfast nook or the outdoor patio table! A half bath is also available on the ground floor. The house has garage parking and washer & dryer available. I Pod docking station with CD and AM/FM radio for your music pleasure. 46 inch flat screen cable TV with couch and overstuffed recliner you can easily fall asleep in (I know from experience).
Warning – this house could be detrimental to your fitness plan as you could spend quite a few hours and days on the deck or patio having drinks and food while enjoying the view. Alternatively, you could roll out of bed and head into South Mountain Park to enjoy/explore the 60 miles of hiking and biking trails. For you wildlife lovers, bird seed is provided for the dozens of gambels quail and other birds that frequent my yard. Also, hummingbirds and woodpeckers are common, along with the occasional roadrunner.
Choose from a library of over 100 books for your reading pleasure. If you don't finish the book before you leave please take it with you.

How does pricing work? Here is an explanation as to why you may see varying prices.
DAILY PRICING pricing typically starts at $129 a night, except for March, where it starts at $139
SUMMER SPECIAL! Summer pricing starts at only $89 a night! I define summer as June 1 - Sept 30, 2014.
WEEKLY PRICING is typically $850 per week, with the exception of March and summer. March is $950 a week, summer is $575 a week.
MONTHLY PRICING is typically $2250 (Oct 1 - Feb 28 and April 1 - May 31), but varies the rest of the year according to season, as low as $1900 (summer June 1 - September 30) or $2800 on the high end for March. How do I define a month? Any consecutive string of up to 31 nights, not necessarily a calendar month. For example, Dec. 15 checkin - Jan 15 checkout would be one example of a month, as would July 1 - 31. If pricing comes back higher than the quotes above, I will adjust. pricing.
SUBLET PRICING is $1900 per month for any 2 or more consecutive months
Extra person charge of $10 per night after the 3rd person.

We had a wonderful time staying at David's place! It's even better than pictured. We hiked South Mountain Park everyday and saw lots of wildlife. It was great to be so close to nature while being a short drive to all the places we needed to go to in the city. Rent this house, you will not be disappointed!
Five of us stayed at this beautiful house for a business trip. The house was vary spacious and wonderful to relax in after a long day on our feet. The location was easy to get to and just a short drive from the airport. We loved how we could feed some birds in the morning and watch hikers hike the hills. We only wish we had more time to take a hiking adventure just out the back door. We will try and stay here again on our next trip to Phoenix that's for sure.
We stayed for three nights and enjoyed it very much. The location ... right by the South Mountain Reserve ... was the best. There were birds (website hidden)ing and singing throughout the day. Delightful!
Davidʻs home is fabulous! Very private neighborhood, and right next to nature trail, it has unobstructed panoramic views and is really quiet. He wasnʻt there, and is so thoughtful that there were all kinds of little guest surprises left for us. Three bedrooms upstairs (ours had a movie screen) and comfy kitchen, dining room, bar and living room downstairs, plus, garage and laundry, and thatʻs not even mentioning the balcony and backyard full of birds.
The house was a welcome temporary home after a long weekend hiking the Grand Canyon. David was super-communicative and everything was brilliant!
Amazing stay! The house was clean and SOOOOO comfortable! My room was the two twin beds room. My favorite thing to do was open my blinds as I went to bed so that I could look out the window right as I woke up in the morning . So beautiful! It was fun to watch the animals! We even saw a bunny hop on in! Thank you so much!
We stayed at "Casa David" and had a fantastic time! Getting there from the airport or interstate is easy and the beautiful open spaces of the South Mountain Sonoran desert are your back yard and kitchen view. The house, furniture & bedding are clean and really comfortable, and all the little things that make a house a home are everywhere. Besides the view, the kitchen is fully equipped with almost anything your might need. There is even a grill if you want to do your cooking outside. You could easily spend your days hitting the nearby trails and enjoy your evening backyard beverage with the local wildlife. Communication with David was easy and timely. This was our first airbnb experience and we were totally satisfied with our host and his house. Gracias muchos David!!
We had a wonderful stay and David's home was even better than expected. The trail system is incredible and so are the views. It was very enjoyable watching the abundant quail and hummingbirds. We appreciated the flexible check in & out time. We would definitely like to come back! Thank you very much David, we enjoyed our family time. Koni, Robert & family
Terrific location beside Phoenix South Mountain Park facilitated wonderful daily hiking opportunities. David is a conscientious and wonderful host. His house was roomy, clean and comfortable with the best stocked kitchen!
Location made sight seeing extremely accessible throughout the greater Phoenix area and beyond. We highly recommend this property to anyone and hope to return next year. We stayed for a month during Christmas and New Years and had a fabulous visit.
This is such a lovely home and my family enjoyed staying here very much. The house and kitchen is very well supplied which made it so perfect for our family weekend retreat ! The views are fabulous and the hiking on South Mountain is wonderful. I highly recommend this property & will be coming back soon !!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
