About Nancy and Rene Eris

We moved to Arizona from the Monterey Bay area in California nineteen years ago. We had both owned businesses in California and wanted to retire in an area that was fog free and enjoyed year round sun. After searching the Southwest for several years, we found the perfect place for us in the Troon Village area of Scottsdale..a location that was a little remote and very scenic, yet near enough to 'all the action' that the greater Phoenix area and the State have to offer. We love to hike the nearby trails enjoying vistas of beautiful mountains, boulder outcroppings and high desert landscape. One of our favorite things to do is to sit in the spa viewing the spectacular display of stars in the nightime sky and is a favorite with our visitors as well. Our casita is located on the property with our home, but is a separate unit we built to accommodate our guests.

Come be our guests in our cozy casita soon! Happy Trails, Nancy & Rene

Nancy and Rene Eris purchased this studio in 1997

What makes this studio unique

Our casita is perfect for guests who want a private, quiet and comfortable retreat! The courtyard entrance completes the inviting atmosphere with the sound of a soothing fountain. Two plush chairs in the courtyard are perfect for greeting the morning with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine later in the day. The casita is decorated with a Southwest motif and has many 'creature comforts' you would expect...a basket of fruit and extra bottles of water to name just a couple. The pool and spa are for private use of only our guests.

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

As much as we wish to keep this gem to us, we find ourselves often telling our family members and friends about how marvelous this place is and the pleasurable experience we had. We speak of this place very highly and without hesitations, recommend it to our friends for their rendezvous.

This cozy casita has so much to offer and it surroundings will sure ignite the romance. We absolutely LOVE it!

The clear blue sky, sparkling stars, Nancy’s flickering candles, outstanding mountain views and hot bubbly Jacuzzi sure sets a very romantic atmosphere.

And to top it off, the owners (Nancy and Rene’) are absolutely an amazing couple with gushing hospitality. They are definitely the icing on the cake and will definitely make you feel at home here.

Due to its popularity, it books quickly. So, if you are currently planning a trip and have certain dates in mind, you better book this lovely casita fast.

My husband and I already planning on visiting again early 2015 and we surely cannot wait.

An Oasis to be ENJOYED!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Casita for 5 nights in early April. Rene and Nancy are such accommodating and hospitable hosts. They shared their tranquil backyard with us and the panoramic views are spectacular. The Casita is cozy and quaint and its location suited our needs to a 'T'. Looking forward to our next visit in the fall. We cherished the opportunity to make 'friends' with two very, special people.

A Little Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the eastern Scottsdale area. As hikers and mountain bikers we were drawn to this location because of its proximity to the McDowell Mountains and the state park. What a delightful surprise to arrive at this absolutely lovely property and to be greeted so warmly by our gracious hosts, Nancy and Rene. The studio casita was beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed with all the necessities for our visit. Nancy even provided a plate of homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (perfection!) and a basket of fruit. While the VRBO site photos accurately portrayed the attractive interior of the casita, pictures really did not prepare us for the extraordinary beauty of the property's desert landscapes, both wild and domesticated. There were exceptional views from every perspective...of mountains, saguaro cactus, and flowering desert plants and bushes. We were thrilled when Rene alerted us to a small group of javelinas wandering through a nearby wash! The bird watching opportunities at the back patio bird feeder were excellent and we never tired of enjoying the desert sunsets in front of the outdoor fireplace. We only wish the weather had been a bit warmer so that we could have enjoyed a post ride soak in the pool or hot tub. Thank you, again, Nancy and Rene, for this wonderful experience and your kind hospitality!

Wonderful Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in Nancy and Rene's casita. Everything about it, the countless amenities, the beautiful unique location, and especially the VERY accommodating hosts made our visit memorable. The other reviews describe all of the special extras that Nancy and Rene provide but you still have to be there to understand how special it is! We could hear owls and coyotes (once) at night and from the bed in the morning we could look up at the beautiful mountain out of a window. My husband even felt so inspired that he wanted to go for walks and hikes (walking sticks were in the room) -- believe me, that does not happen often!

Great spot, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay for a week at the Casita. It is great location to stay in Scottsdale. The Casita was clean very comfortable and quiet. The property owners, Rene and Nancy, are super nice people and excellent hosts. The use of their beautiful backyard was appreciated. The location setting is gorgeous and a perfect home base for cycling the roads of Scottsdale,Cave Creek and Carefree as well as the trails in the McDowell mountain park. I will be back again.

Holy Cow!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Scottsdale for thanksgiving, and when we arrived to the house were blown away. Not only was the property well laid out and decorated, the arrangement of the casita was perfect. It had its own private entrance that we could come and go through. Unless we planned to meet for coffee or tea, we didn't see the home owners once, we felt very private.

The Casita itself was cozier and more homey than my own bedroom!! It was decorated as a true casita with old western antiques and beautiful Western artwork. For a studio there was amble room and plenty of amenities. Homemade cookies, coffee, toiletries and fresh fruit were a huge plus!

Overall it was the best travel rental experience we have ever had, and we travel A LOT. We highly recommend staying with this wonderful couple and their wonderful casita!
