Bill Rector purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Bill Rector chose Scottsdale

I rented this beautiful townhome from the previous owners during November of 2011. The reason for my visit was to look for a second home in Scottsdale. During my 30 day visit I was inside more than 110 properties in the area. At the end of a long day of looking at properties I couldn't wait to get home to this Santa Fe II home. This was by far my favorite property of the many that I looked at. As a bonus, the location is ideal. Just minutes from the best dining in the Valley and world class shopping at Fashion Square and Kierland Commons. When I heard the owners were thinking of selling, I jumped on the opportunity.

What makes this townhome unique

Next to Golf, Dining, Worldclass Entertainment in the brandnew TALKING STICK RESORT & CASINO, SALTRIVERFIELDS, the brandnew Major League Baseball Spring Training Facility for the AZ-DIAMONDBACKS and the COLORADO ROCKIES is just a 5 minute drive away .

And worldfamous Downtown Scottsdale with tons of Restaurants, Bars, Highend Shopping, Galleries and Antique Stores is also only 5 minute drive.

Peaceful Gem

  • 5 of 5

It was a joy to return to this Scottsdale patio home. So many rental properties feel generic. In this home you are surrounded by authentic Southwestern charm.The home is quite spacious and has every convenience for a relaxed ambience. There was even wrapping paper which i used for a hostess gift!The patio is even more beautiful than in the pictures.It feels cozy and spacious at the same time because of the complete privacy.Both the owner and the property manager were real gentlemen and made sure that everything went smoothly.Enjoy the lakeside walks--we miss them already.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Spent 55 days here from Nov. to Jan. 2016 and easily could have spent another 55 days. The home is very well decorated and includes Indian pottery, nit nacks, reference books about the Phoenix/Arizona area and tribes. The home has been upgaded, adobe/spanish motiff with private backyard, wood burning fireplace, and BBQ. The kitchen and bathrooms were fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The hospitality shown by our host was outstanding and he will even share some of his favorite culinary eating establishments with you. This comfortable and functional home has a convenient location close to great dining, golf and points of interest. If you like walking, there are 25 miles of walking trails in and around the subject's neighborhood. All we can say to the owner is Thank You for making our Scottsdale vacation a success.

Fantastic Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned to the UK having spent 5 weeks in this beautiful property. We been to Scottsdale several times and this was simply the best. It is situated in a quiet, peaceful and safe area. The back yard is totally enclosed and utterly private. We did indeed have hummingbirds visiting!! When we went out for the day it was lovely to return to somewhere that began to feel more and more like home. The owner and his managers were really helpful and great at communication. We're golfers so we had loads of courses nearby, so convenient. We particularly loved having the bicycles available for us to ride on the very near cycle paths, we also loved the communal pool, which was very under used, we often had it to ourselves. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to any looking for a super place to stay.

Delightful property

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful property! The pictures are totally represent the Southwestern themed home. We,ve rented numerous properties over the years . This was definitely our favorite.Very well maintained and the best equipped we,ve ever experienced. The patio was a beautiful and private oasis. Who wouldn,t want to be a minute away from the walking trails at the lake! Both the owner and the property manager made sure that we could contact them with any concerns.This home is very well located in a lovely neighborhood with easy access to all the wonderful things Scottsdale has to offer. Don,t t forget to visit the Musical Instruments Museum themim.0rg

Favorite Scottsdale Rental

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home is our favorite Scottsdale rental! It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and is located in a convenient, safe and desirable neighborhood. We loved all the sky lights, the indoor cactus atrium, fantastic kitchen, huge fireplaces in the dining and living rooms and the wonderful walled back patio. The patio is great for entertaining with it's built in grill, multiple seating areas, patio heater, outdoor fire place and beautiful landscaping. We loved watching the hummingbirds come and go. Pictures simply do not do this house justice. It was spotlessly clean on our arrival. The owner made the entire transaction simple and his local caretaker was there to show us around the home and answer any questions we had. All in all this was an excellent experience and we can't wait to revisit this home on our next visit to Scottsdale.

Couldn't Have Made a Better Choice

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to experience Scottsdale from a location that was central to activities in the area. We couldn't have made a better choice. The house was exactly as portrayed in the pictures and was a wonderful southwestern themed home close to everything Scottsdale and Phoenix have to offer. The backyard was perfect and the surroundings were very quiet and peaceful. Everything was clean and neat. We were able to walk a short distance to the pool or take bikes to the bike trail for our morning cup of coffee.

The owner was wonderful and the person who opened the house and let us in and showed us around was extremely nice and helpful as well. I received several e-mails from the owner during our stay asking if there was anything we needed. There were very clear instructions left in the kitchen describing when trash is picked up, how to turn on the tv, etc. We hope we are lucky enough to rent this home again. This was a great value for us.
