AUTHENTIC SOUTHWEST GETAWAY (TWO BDRM/TWO BATH)

Phoenix Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 berdrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4

In the heart of the Southwest, everything is easily accessible from this perfectly located condo. Just two miles from magnificent Camelback Mountain, 10-15 minutes northeast to Old Town Scottsdale, and ASU. Papago Park, Botanical Gardens and the Phoenix Zoo are all just a hop, skip and a jump from this beautiful condo. There are golf courses in every direction or you can go tubing at the Salt River for a change of pace. The Grand Canyon is just under a 4 hour drive so why not stop in Sedona along the way to see the Chapel in the Hills or take the kids to Slide Rock State Park. You may not want to leave this great condo and complex but should you decide to venture out, the possibilities are endless. Please also see Property No. 155621.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only

Guestbook comments from the owner

There were special touches throughout this rental! As we entered, there was a lovely bouquet welcoming us to our vacation home. The decorating had the touch of someone who had given special thought to, as well as, "eye appealing" amenities. The kitchen area was well stocked with dishes, utensils, and pans. We ate most of our meals at the rental. The laundry was convenient - next door. Even better, we never heard any noise from the machines, which were new. This ground floor rental was convenient to the parking of our auto which was under shelter and just behind our condo. There were games in the closet, and with our 2 granddaughters, we spent a couple of evenings playing "Life", "Apples to Apples" and "Concentration" until their parents returned to take them to bed. The owners had given excellent directions before we arrived, and we found them to be very open in addressing prior questions. Across the street from this complex was a Walgreen store and just down the street, a short distance, was the Fry's grocery store and a nice bowling alley. The keys had a Fry card which was used when we shopped. The location was only a short drive to Historic Scottsdale, Arizona State University (where we attended a Women's Basketball game), and Freeways which made it easy to get around the greater Phoenix area. A brisk morning walk to a park area near by, was a nice way to begin the day. There are many nice restaurants near by as well. We enjoyed US Egg. We found that after a busy day, the beds were comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet, and we had a good night's rest. We highly recommend this property as a relaxing and enjoyable vacation rental.

Comfort and convenience in Phoenix!!

  • 5 of 5
The location, layout and amenities were all that you could ask for and it is priced to return again and again! I would highly recommend this property which was very convenient to Old Scottsdale, the Desert Belle, Arizona Biltmore, as well as the Walking Stick Casino and the Botanical Gardens. Nice walking areas and a short block to Walgreen's and a restaurant. The pool area is very clean and the "regulars" will make you feel more than welcome. You will not be disappointed!

Heaven on Earth

Dear Jim and Peggy,

We are ecstatic to remit a check to secure the rental of the above-referenced condominium for the same period of time next year

If you were to limit me to just one word to describe our vacation, it would have to be, WOW!!!. And even that would be understated in the nth degree. Who could ask for nicer weather or a better appointed or more comfortable apartment? While I managed to log almost 500 miles on my bike the ladies were able to sew and sew and sew to their hearts content. And how is the Botanic Garden ever going to top that exhibit next year? The Prada del Sol in nearby Scottsdale with all the horses and bands was an unexpected surprise while the closeness of Camelback Mountain with its hiking trails proved to be yet another of the many available highlights.

Looking forward to next year and hope to see you there again.

Thanks for everything,


Erv and LC

Clean, Claen

  • 4 of 5
We were delayed because of flight mix up. We found the place very quickly (we were in AZ for over 23 years).
Pro: 1. Clean, Clean Clean
2. Quiet 3. Close to 101 (about 4 miles).
4. Close to Scottsdale shopping and heading west there is minor shopping.
5. Laundry right next door -- we did not use this facility.
6. Adequate supplies. We replaced a whole lot more than what was used for "paying it forward".
7. Jim called as we had not arrived to make sure everything was OK. -- Shows genuine concern from the home owners.

Con: 1. Older building in need of upgrade.
2. Minor concern -- no security gates or cameras. In these times, this is a must.
3. "Holy" bed spread in the master bed room.
4. One table lamp is burned out. Could not find a bulb to replace.

Suggestions: 1. Dark paint - apartment is really small -- lightening the paint color and keeping less furniture may help.
2. Get rid of the old incandescent bulbs and replace with high efficiency CFL bulbs to brighten up the rooms and reduce energy!

Overall Recommended.

Great Stay In The Southwest Getaway!

This condo was everything that I had anticipated! Very clean and roomy for the 4 of us! The grills & pool are very close to the unit. Jim & Peggy were so easy to deal with. I can't wait to go again.

Home away from home in Phoenix , Arizona

  • 5 of 5
Jim and Peggy have a wonderful 2bdr/2bth unit on the border of Scottsdale, Arizona. They have a beautifully decorated very clean condo, with everything you need linen,towels,laudry supplies and fully equipped kitchen. There is a nice pool in the complex and everyone in the building is very friendly. Old Town Scottsdale is a short drive away with many shops and great resaurants. Both Jim and Peggy are great to deal with and provide excellent customer service. I would recommend them to my family or friends anytime. We rented their other unit last year and would use them again when we come back to Phoenix.

Great place, great experience!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent almost two months at this rental. I can't say enough about how GREAT the place is and how WONDERFUL the owners are. The rental has all the comforts of home. They had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, there is cable TV, internet, home phone service, etc. They even provide board games and rafts to take to the pool! The location is excellent, right on the border with Scottsdale but still close to downtown Phoenix. There is a grocery store very close to the apartment along with other restaurants and things to do. It was only my husband and I but there is plenty of room for more guests. I think the owners are the best thing about the rental. They were always available for anything we needed at anytime. I would never stay anywhere else in Phoenix. Thank you Jim and Peggy!
