About Our Scottsdale Vacation Home: It was a labor of love to have completely remodeled our wonderful vacation home. Loving both Tuscany and the Arizona desert we put our 'personal stamp' on our vacation home, using our expertise in architectural design, construction, and decorating.

Having spent the last 40 years professionally in the architectural design, general contracting, development, real estate investment, and property management business, we look forward to sharing our personal delightful Scottsdale Vacation Home with you, in a professional, yet PERSONAL way. As the experienced owners, my wife & I handle all of these details ourselves. We find dealing with all of our wonderful Guests, very, very enjoyable and enriching. It is our pleasure to meet just the nicest and most interesting people from all over the U.S., Canada & abroad! : ) We look forward to You being our Guest & enjoying our/your home.

Why We Have A Home In North Scottsdale: Our adult children and three wonderful little grandchildren live in the Scottsdale area. There is no way we are going to miss out on enjoying their blessing, and being a part of their lives. Plus, North Scottsdale is just such an amazing area, with so many varied things to do, just within 1-10 minutes of our lovely 2nd home.

Why Should You Come? Because it is such an amazing and interesting area. ...And it makes such a great home base to explore the many wonders of the state of Arizona. ...Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff (with 112' of snow a year). ...Or, try treating yourself to a 2-1/2 hour trip to the wonderful little towns of Pine and Strawberry with the clear rivers, tall Pines and cool 5600 ft. altitude climate. ...And so, so much more!

About Morris Foster

My wife & I have been married for 41 years, have two wonderful adult children and their mates, and three delightful grand children. : )

We love our life in east Texas, and greatly enjoy having 100+ acres with livestock, private 8 acre lake...with great fishing : ) ...and going all out hosting our Luaus and Barn Dances, complete with live music, square dancing hayrides and more.

In contrast, we LOVE our alternate life and beautiful, quiet gated community in Scottsdale...being able to enjoy our kids and grand kids...and savoring the wonderful and vast array of things to see and do in Scottsdale, the surrounding area, and the entire state.

I have an extensive background in architectural design, decorating, building homes & large apartment communities, development, property management, and real estate investments.

My wife & I love to put our personal design & decorating stamp on our properties. That is exactly what we did on our Scottsdale home...which was a labor of love. As time permits, we take great satisfaction in continuing to add more delightful custom features to our Scottsdale home. I think you will enjoy them. ...All of our previous guest have. ; )

Morris Foster purchased this house in 2008

Why Morris Foster chose Scottsdale

We LOVE it!! ...We know YOU WILL TOO! The Location! The Size! The Floor Plan! The Views! The Veranda! The Small, Beautiful, Quiet Community! Our Wonderful Friendly Neighbors! : ) We love it all. : )

We also love that our home is only two (King Suite) Bedrooms. We like that it has a feeling of spaciousness, but that it does not have several more bedrooms which can attract the party crowd. All rooms have vaulted ceilings, except the kitchen and one bath. As you can see in the pictures, the kitchen has custom hand crafted & distressed ceiling beams...contributing to the "Old World Tuscan" feel.

Our home attracts just the nicest, most appreciative people. Many of whom are annual repeat guests, who we have come to consider as friends.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful location. Beautiful, Quiet, Gated Community, Open Floor Plan. 2 KING SUITES. Wonderful Open Desert Views from Veranda. Delightful Veranda with Manicured Plants & Flowers. Stainless Gas Grill that gets up to about 800 Degrees. Friendly Neighbors. Friendly Owners. ; ) ...And so much more.

Excellent Get-Away and Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We were very delighted to find and stay in this house. The property was close to everything yet provided the feeling of being remote and secure The decor was superb and the amenities more than met our needs. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. Views were delightful. Property is very clean and very well maintained. Kitchen was well equipped with anything you may require.

Private outside area provided quiet for reading, relaxing and dining. Excellent restaurants and shopping nearby as well as only a short drive to art exhibits.

We recommend The Harvest, a nearby restaurant, for breakfast and lunch.

We enjoyed our stay immensely which was due in part to the friendly and professional service provided by owners.

Lovely, comfortable home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable home in as perfect a place in Arizona as you can find, this is your place. The home is spacious with everything you could ask for: a garage, lovely yard, wonderful views, quiet and safe neighborhood, friendly neighbors. There is a flat, sandy wash adjacent to the development that is a perfect place to hike where we saw quail, cactus wrens, roadrunners, doves, cardinals and many other birds. It goes on for miles. Also within an easy walk are wonderful restaurants, a Starbucks and Safeway. Within easy driving is every shop and store you can imagine as well as excellent freeway access.

We stayed here from mid August to mid November while our home was being built. We were so pleased that we chose this rental over the others for all of the above reasons. The owner, Morris, is a delightful man, and was a pleasure to work with. He was accommodating in every way, and made our stay as comfortable as possible. We had a small issue with the clothes washer that was repaired immediately, and everything else worked very well. This is not a bare bones rental property. There is an r/o water system, water softener, spacious kitchen with every utensil and small appliance you could ask for. The pantry is stocked with staples. It is ideal for entertaining, inside and outside on the spacious patio. It is very private and quiet.

This is a beautiful property in an ideal location. Even though we were not on vacation when we stayed here, the resort like atmosphere was certainly soothing and peaceful, and we were so happy we chose to stay here. I think you will enjoy it, too.

Beyond excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth consecutive year staying at this property. So obviously we like it. The property is always clean and well maintained. It is as advertised, a Tuscan decor which is very well done. The home, and you feel at home not like you're in a rental property, is well appointed, comfortable and well equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils for those who like to cook. The outside patio has a BBQ, outdoor dining, and lounge chairs for sun bathing and offers privacy..

It is very quiet, in a gated community with beautiful tree lined streets, heated pool, spa and numerous walking trails within the gates or nearby. It is centrally located near the 101 FWY with great shopping and several good restaurants nearby.

The owners Morris & Linda are very nice, we met them on one of our trips, easy to deal with and respond in a timely manner to email or phone requests, although we've never had to contact them for a problem during any of our stays.

We always look forward to returning and highly recommend this property to others looking for rentals in Scottsdale.

Peaceful Scottsdale Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the beautiful home and the location. The owners were very helpful and the home was as described. The patio and grill area were relaxing after a long day of hiking or sightseeing.

We hope to return again next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

WOW WOW WOW

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely house so much. It felt like we never left home...except of course for the weather :-)!

Whether it was sitting on the great patio or cooking in the well stocked kitchen, time spent there was a great experience.

The home is stocked with every publication a tourist needs.

Thanks so much Linda and Morris.

We'll be back!!!

What a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Scottsdale and a big part was staying at this lovely home. Everything was well maintained and beautiful. Loved the back terrace. The beds were comfortable and the love seat just perfect for curling up with my latest mystery book. My husband loved the golf and I loved visiting the Poisoned Pen Bookstore. We shopped and ate some great food. Harvest Restaurant nearby was a favorite for both breakfast and dinner.

Thanks so much for sharing with us! It was cooler in AZ than in our home of Austin, TX while we were there.

Fabulous Location! So much to do within 1-10 minutes. Enjoy the abundance of Golf Courses, Restaurants, Shopping, Barret-Jackson Auction, Pinnacle Peak. Experience the amazing views from numerous hiking trails. ...And you just have to treat yourself to the Old West experiences of nearby Grease Wood Flat and the wonderful Old West town of Cave Creek.

Your second home is located in the heart of so much to do, yet is on the edge of the 'new frontier'. Enjoy the multitude of convenient attractions, or the Serenity of our Mountain Views and the Peaceful Desert Sights and Sounds from our delightfully landscaped private side yard veranda.
