Encanto Reviews

3 reviews
Interesting, bustling, safe area. Lots of homeless people. I have 2 grocery stores within walking distance. Wish there were more places open past 9pm-11pm. 20 minutes to ASU.

I immediately liked this area when I first saw it. This is one of the few areas in Phoenix where all the buildings are NOT a different shade of brown. We have pink buildings, purple buildings, blue buildings, green buildings, murals, palm trees, and even an artificial forest. Can see the mountains from any street in any direction. Bike friendly. Young professionals.

The Encanto neighborhood is an amazing place to grow up as a kid. With many schools nears by, parks to play in, and kids living all over the neighborhood. The houses are elegant and timeless, but also have the luxuries of modern homes! It very rarely feels unsafe, if ever and people are friendly! It is very centrally located and close to Downtown and Central Phoenix! It is a great place for people all ages to live!
Encanto is a great place for families who want to raise their kids and have great public schools around the area and have easy access to different kinds of parks
