Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property. It's so easy to live in and we had a blast staying there. The pictures don't show how beautiful it is. The rooms are large, the house was very clean with great decor, the kitchen had everything and more that you needed and it was even stocked with booze! The beds were really comfortable and with the triple digit weather, the 6 foot deep pool was a life-saver! Golf courses are nearby, shopping is close and Cave Creek was a fun outing as well. We spent an afternoon in the old part of Scottsdale which has a ton of jewelry stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend renting this place.

A Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We can’t say enough good things about this home! It is spacious, clean, comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. We have been spending a month in Scottsdale every winter for the last six years and this was by far the best place we’ve rented. The house is nicely situated and close to shopping and excellent restaurants. It is spotless and everything is in working order. We loved sitting by the pool every afternoon. Our grandkids visited a couple of days and loved the pool and the hot tub. We would love to rent this house again but it is in high demand by return visitors. We certainly appreciate the time we spent there! We had a wonderful vacation....thank you, Dale and Ann!

Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

Our monthlong stay was enjoyable in every way. The property owners were very easy to communicate with, and the property itself was beautiful, comfortable and even better than the photos suggest. Such a spacious feeling throughout the home with a great layout, and lovely outdoor area.

We chose this North Scottsdale location because we like to be close to the hiking trails, variety of golf courses, and our favorite foodery (AJ’s).

We highly recommend this property for all the above reasons.

Lovely Property; Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time that my wife and I have stayed at this lovely property, which is located in the quiet and tranquil Carriage Trails area of North Scottsdale. The home is a perfect base for people who like walking / hiking, being just 10-15 minutes from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve; Cave Creek Regional Park; Spur Cross Ranch etc.

The property itself is a well maintained & well equipped 3 bedroom house, which offers a high level of privacy with open 'desert' beyond the fence ..... ideal for spotting a myriad of bird and wildlife. The garden is nice and relaxing, with a lovely pool and hot tub.

A real home from home, with easy access to shops and restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

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.
