My husband and I live in Colorado. He grew up in Denver and I grew up in Queens, NY. We have always been drawn to the Scottsdale area. We love the year round outdoor living and truly enjoy hiking, mountain and road biking, while discovering new places that surround the Scottsdale/Phoenix areas. The three lakes that are within 30 minutes took us by surprise. Absolutely beautiful! We recently took a photography class at the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden. We are so excited with our new hobby. We have the best of both worlds to photograph. The Colorado Rockies and the Sonoran Desert. Our Terravita home is our escape for total relaxation. Book a vacation at our home and discover the true beauty of fun in the sun!!
Merrilee De Waal purchased this house in 2009
Terravita is a guarded/gated community offering championship golfing, several tennis courts, basketball, a community pool for playing or swimming laps, a large hot tub, and walking trails all with the beauty of Black Mountain and 'The Boulders' rock formations smiling upon you. All that you could desire is hop, skip and a jump away. Each time we visit we enjoy trying new restaurants and/or enjoying a drink at one of many beautiful resorts. The location is convenient to shopping. The variety of grocery stores, restaurants and outdoor living is all yours. After owning the home for four years we still can't wait to return and have 'Chief Willow' waiting to welcome us home.
Enjoy your very own pool and water feature!! Comforable patio furniture is provided to enhance your outdoor living enjoyment. There are trails galore right inside the community of Terravita. You'll keep busy as there are tons of things to do in the immediate area as well as super day trips. Friendly neighbors. Come and Enjoy!!
My family rented this property in November. The house immediately felt like "home". It's warm, comfortable and inviting. The couches in the family room allow cozy TV watching or napping. The kitchen had everything necessary for both cooking and baking. We took advantage of the southern exposure in the yard to soak in some sunshine and watch stunning sunsets. The neighborhood was wonderfully quiet and the perfect place to just relax. My husband used one of the bikes and enjoyed pedaling around the community. There were even maps and books on the area for us to borrow. This is a lovely home with plenty of "extras".
We have rented this property on 2 occasions and have found this home spacious, clean, well equipped and in a wonderful location. The home description as it appears on VRBO is accurate both in terms of what is written and in pictures. The Terravita community is well established and has a newly remodeled health club (fully equipped with latest equipment), community pool and clubhouse. For a modest fee, you can use all these facilities including their country club dining room. Finally, the owners of this property are very easy to do business with and take great care and pride in maintaining their home. We take care of it while renting as if we own it. It makes for a good partnership!! We would highly recommend this property.
We recently enjoyed a two month stay in this lovely home. Far from a typical rental, this property provided all of the comforts of homes. Nothing was amiss - we were able to instantly settle in.
The home is extremely spacious, tastefully and comfortably furnished (including beds), and well-outfitted with high-quality appliances and entertainment electronics. The outdoor space is equally inviting and we particularly enjoyed the private desert wash setting and southern exposure. We entertained throughout the December holidays and took advantage of the owner's collection of Cooking Light magazines - what great recipes!
Most importantly, the homeowners were a pleasure to deal with and very attentive to our needs and expectations, all of which were exceeded. The neighbours were likewise - in fact, the entire community is friendly and welcoming. We made ample use of the common amenities (gym, pool, tennis courts, club house) - all are fantastic!
To sum up, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.
My wife and I were moving to Scottsdale and wanted to rent for a few months while we searched for a home. We found this home through VRBO. We rented from September through mid January. Both of us agree that we couldn't have picked a better place to start our time in Arizona. First, unlike a lot of furnished rentals, this felt like a home, not just a house with some stuff in it. Everything we needed was available and it was all quality furnishings and well coordinated. We felt very comfortable entertaining friends and family and all visitors commented on what a great home it was. At Christmas we had a full house, but didn't feel overcrowded. Movies in one room, board games in another and cards in another. Everyone loved it. The backyard is private and the pool is just the right size. It is an oasis. You may even get some fresh citrus if you are there at the right time. As we searched for homes, we had a chance to see a number of communities. We couldn't find one that could match Terravita. They have a great exercise facility and the dining facility is very good. Don't miss pizza night! All of the staff are friendly and helpful. There are great restaurants close by in North Scottsdale and Carefree and major shopping areas are only 10 miles away. The owners were great and easy to work with and always offered to help if there was any issue. Bottom line, if you are looking for a great furnished house in Scottsdale, you can't beat this home. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we did.
