Why Karen Matzke chose El Lago Village Condos

We stayed at this condo in March of 2013 and loved it so much, we contacted the owner to see if he would be interested in selling it to us. The rest is history, as they say!

What makes this condo unique

The first time we walked into the condo, we were breathless. It is gorgeous! From the travertine tile floors, to the other design elements and the location, it is second to none. We were looking to purchase a property and decided....Why not this one?

Wonderful Month

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in this condo. I love all the extra touches the owner has done to make it more attractive! This condo is very close to restaurants, walks around the fountain, and hiking! We love being so close to the downtown area so we can walk everywhere! Karen is always good about getting back to me. Great place to stay!

Awesome Condo-Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a little familiar with Fountain Hills, as we did some sight seeing a couple days last year. We decided to spend a month in Fountain Hills area this year to escape the harsh Wisconsin weather. We are so glad that we selected this condo. It was everything we could have dreamed for and more! The owners were very accommodating. the condo was supplied with everything that you would need. What impressed us most, was the most perfect location, we are active seniors, and we were able to walk everywhere-library museum, post office, fountain park, bars, grocery store, restaurants, etc. We took advantage of many hiking trails in the area. We are avid bicyclists, and there are bike lanes everywhere. The area seems very safe, my wife walked all over the thoroughfares by herself during the day while I was out enjoying the many area golf courses. Getting back to the Condo itself, everything is decorated very nice, and you feel at home. We only used one bedroom as it was just the two of us, but there would be enough room for 4 people if needed. 2 private bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and big closets. The neighbors are all polite and the area is quiet. The outdoor pool is unheated, so it was too cold to use in January, but we did use the hot tub a lot. The owners Karen and Dave were easy to work with, and had everything in order for our arrival. By the way, there is a great 3 ring binder that the owners put together, it is in the entryway. It had all the information on the Condo and surrounding area that you need. We had an Awesome time!,

February Trip

  • 5 of 5

Karen's condo was just perfect and I quickly felt at home. I had several questions and she would get back to me immediately! It is in a perfect location and we could walk everywhere. The condo was decorated with a southern touch and was just perfect! I can't wait to come back next year!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is just a great condo in a great location. We walked to several restaurants from there, and there are some good ones. We walked to the fountain park and around the lake (I think everyone we crossed paths with said "good morning"). The condo itself is very comfortable, relaxing, well equipped, nicely furnished, and has several nice pieces of southwestern art. I give it five stars because I can't think how to improve it. Fountain hills itself is a great location. I hope to go back next year.

Thank you to the owners! They provided a beautiful condo with all the amenities. its a keeper. Karen and David really care about their property and want to share their love of AZ. We've traveled to Fountain Hills for several years and finally found the perfect place to stay. We cannot wait to come back. The condo is a gem; as are the owners. Gotta say....everything about our 2 week stay was easy, because Karen and David made it easy. And their place is amazing.

Thank you for sharing your vacation home and wonderful weather with us Wisconsinites

'The world's tallest fountain' brings visitors from all over the globe. This quaint 'valley' community has beautiful mountain views and is surrounded by Red Rock Mtn, Four Peaks Mtn, McDowell Mtn and the famous Superstition Mtns. The Fountain Festival in November and the Great Fair in February offer more than 400 artists and artisans, hot air balloon races, food and music with free admission. November and March bring 'Concerts in the Park'.

Fountain Hills is just a short 15 minute drive to Scottsdale and its many shops and restaurants and well known '5th Avenue Stores'. The Mayo Clinic, Saguaro Lake, Fort McDowell and Talking Stick Casinos, The Phoenix Zoo, public golf courses and many of the Baseball Spring Training parks are just minutes away, as well.

You are only 30 minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and 40 minutes away from Mesa Gateway Airport. Shuttle services are provided to Fountain Hills from both sites. So, feel free to rent your vehicle right in Fountain Hills.

Your 'home away from home' was designed by HGTV Design Star Finalist Yuki Northington. Beautiful travertine tile has been installed throughout the entire unit complimenting the stainless steel appliances and slab granite counter tops. Additional touches have been added for your comfort. It is a one level condo on the first floor with a courtyard entryway. The 2 bedrooms are split to allow for added privacy between guests. There are 2 covered patios (1 by the entry) and one off the Living room/second bedroom, which boasts east facing views of the Fountain and Red Mountain. The kitchen is large. Have your meals at the island or in the eat-in dining room. Step down 2 stairs to the spacious living room with its corner 'beehive' wood burning fireplace and wet bar. There are two travertine-tiled full bathrooms and lots of closet storage space.

The Condo village has a pool, spa and club house. A grill is provided by the pool for general use. Assigned covered parking is just steps away with added parking spaces for guests.

This condo Village is centrally located and within just minutes walkable distance to the community center, city hall, grocery store, library, post office, shopping and many restaurants/bars. Fountain Lake with its beautiful fountain is just 2 blocks away, bringing you that added convenience for biking and jogging/walking around the lake.

There is so much to experience in Arizona! To the north is Sedona, voted one of the most beautiful places in America, only a couple hour drive away. Sedona visitors can spend the day hiking, flying in a hot air balloon, horseback riding or taking a jeep ride and exploring the back roads of the town. The scenic highway is the first part of a day trip to the nearby Grand Canyon.

Two hours to the south, near Tucson, is the real Old West. Tombstone is the site of the real-life 'gunfight at the OK Corral' where countless Hollywood movies have been filmed. See how the pioneers lived.
