We have been renting this lovely home since mid-December, 2013, and will be sorry to leave next week after 3 1/2 wonderful months. There a feeling of openness and light throughout a great floorplan---and privacy and colorful sunsets in the gated, secure back yard. It has been very easy to work with the owner's agent about the minor things that were needed and you cannot find a better location from which to partake in all the fun things to do in Scottsdale: desert walks on an abundance of trails, the Botanical Garden, shopping at Kierland, delicious restaurants everywhere, baseball, theater, music and even dine-in movie theaters. Our dogs were very pleased with "their" yard and the quails and rabbits that visited them. You can see from the photos that the house is fully furnished in the local style---plus the beds are very comfortable and you will find all the necessities in the kitchen and laundry room to make the home fully functional---just bring your clothes and start living life in the high Sonoran Desert. We would gladly lease this home again but have enjoyed it here so much that we will probably purchase a second home here and become snowbirds, escaping the Pacific Northwest winters. You would not regret leasing this home and might even become our neighbors!
