Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. Check in and check out was very easy. We loved the privacy as well. Scottsdale Road can get a bit noisy, but overall it was very peaceful. We would definitely come back here if in the area again.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks and should have booked a month. We have stayed in many VRBO homes and rent 2 of our own. I have never found a home as well equipped including ours, I learned much that we can do in our own rentals. The location is perfect for exploring both Scottsdale and Carefree/Cave creek. The back yard is near Scottsdale Rd but the house is so well insulated that there is no noise indoors. Walking trails nearby are very nice. With a family room and a living room both with large HD TVs everyone could watch what they wanted, of course all TVs were tuned to watch the Clemson Tigers beat Alabama for the national championship!! Very comfortable beds and furnishings.

Highly recommend.

Fabulous Property; Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time my wife and I have stayed at this property, and yet again it delivered a first class vacation experience. The house is located in North Scottsdale, just a 10 minute drive from the wonderful Sonoran Preserve and it's hundreds of miles of desert trails; 10 minutes from the small towns of Carefree and Cave Creek; and 30 minutes from downtown Scottsdale. The house itself is spotlessly clean, everything is in working order, and the facilities are ideal for a couple or small family (3 bedrooms; pool; hot tub; lovely neighborhood etc). The garden is nice and relaxing, with a host of wildlife visiting the perimeter - and dozens of birds (hummingbirds; grouse; doves; woodpeckers; owls etc) in the garden every day.

As avid baseball fans, we find the location ideal for Spring Training and the Arizona Fall League (Salt River Field is 20 mins away; Sloan Park, Scottsdale & Peoria Stadiums 30mins; Glendale 40 mins; Surprise Stadium 50 mins) .... if you're a football fan the Cardinals stadium is 40 mins.

There are plenty of good eating places within a 15 minute drive, and three good supermarkets within 5 mins.

I would thoroughly recommend this property - in fact we have already our return visit for 2017!

The home is absolutely gorgeous with all the amenities one would need. Close to shopping, yet that serene desert setting. Enjoyed the abundance nature has to offer. First time visiting this area & we loved everything about our trip. The owner was wonderful to deal with. We will definitely be back as soon as their calendar & ours are in agreement. I would highly recommend to anyone. Than k you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

The perfect location… North Scottsdale. The natural desert landscape allows you to relax and get away from it all, yet be conveniently close to all the city has to offer; shopping, arts and entertainment, fine dining, etc.
