Let me start by saying I'm a seasoned VRBO & HomeAway renter. I have extremely high standards and have not problem paying more for luxury. I have lived between AZ and Northern CA my entire life. When renting a home we start with location, location, location.
The Kierland area of Scottsdale is perfect. Your close to a fabulous host of things and only a 20 min drive to downtown Phoenix.
Our entire family was in Scottsdale for my daughters graduation. It was important to have the perfect space to host family throughout the week and for her graduation party/barbecue. The house was perfect. Everything from the split floor-plan to the well appointed kitchen that included a wine cooler was modeled with attention to detail and comfort.
A standard feature you will see in AZ vacation rentals is a pool. What you won't see is a gate. If you are parents of young kids this can add unneeded worry to your trip! The backyard is stunning! The patio is covered and gated. The adults were able to sit and relax in view of the pool without the stress of a toddler going overboard. The BBQ grill and smoker are on the other side of the pool.
The day after we arrived was one of the first hot days of the year. Due to all the extra power to the grid we had a three hour blackout. The owners were over in a flash and resolved the matter quickly. They further went out of their way to buy us dinner due to the inconvenience even thou they had no responsibility or control over a large area blackout.
From our Family to yours Thank You!
This really was Home-Away-From Home!
