Why Howard Jones chose Old Town Scottsdale

The location is simply unbeatable. The home is equipped in such a fashion that if we wanted to move in ourselves, we would have to bring nothing but the clothes on our backs.

Spacious Home Close to Old Town

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of January 2016 in this spacious townhome just a block off Scottsdale Road and an easy walk to Fashion Square Mall and Old Town Scottsdale. Even though the townhome is conveniently located, there is very little street noise. For those who are joggers/walkers/cyclists, the paths along the Arizona Canal are less than a half mile away and you can exercise for many miles in either direction. We have been staying in properties all around the country for two winter months for the last nine years and we have never stayed in a home that was better equipped (particularly in the kitchen). For golfers, Howard (the landlord) was very gracious in inviting me to play golf with him and his band of merry men at Camelback Golf Club. We are pleased to recommend this property to anyone who is interested in staying near the heart of Scottsdale.

Perfect Location, perfect property, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay at this convenient location near Fashion Square and Old Town Scottsdale. Everything is in walking distance. New museum, restaurants, shopping and entertainment....we couldn't have been luckier to choose this place for our first trip to Scottsdale. Our hosts were very helpful, showed us all the amenities and provided helpful advice to us. The place was immaculate, well stocked and everything you'd expect from a 5-star hotel. (Well, almost everything, we did our own room service)

I highly recommend this property and the owners are great hosts and deserve to have only the best guests to appreciate this small piece of Scottsdale heaven. I will return!!

Best Scottsdale property

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from 12 nights at this wonderful property and cannot thank Howard enough for the wonderful experience. We have been coming out here for spring training for years but have never rented a property as nice as this one. Location is perfect, we walked into old town everyday. The condo is huge and has everything one could want. The street is quiet and has a pool.The condo also has a rooftop patio. Please do not cheat your family or friends out of a wonderful experience by looking elsewhere. This is as good as it gets. Thanks again, see you next year.

Owner's Response: My, my! Thank you for your kind words. We try to keep it in a condition and as equipped as we would want if we were to live there ourselves. We're glad you enjoyed your visit.

Great townhouse and location

  • 5 of 5

This 2 BR two story townhouse is absolutely a great place to rent! Location is very desirable(1 block from Scottsdale Rd) but yet in a quiet neighborhood setting. The townhouse is completely furnished with every kitchen need except an in-house chef. However, I am sure the owner(Howard) could even help you in this matter. Howard is extremely accommodating and a helpful owner. Look forward to returning.

An Idyllic Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious and clean. Everything you might think you need was readily available and accessible. The street was absolutely picture perfect with a beautifully landscaped way that led to a pool area at the end of the street. The area is beautifully managed, along with being very quiet and serene. The property is centrally located with easy access to wherever we wanted to go, yet it tucked away within a safe enviroment. There is a two car garage which was a bonus. A particulary generous feature was the complete set of spices and condiments along with a kitchen that was well stocked. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable and I highly recommend this rental for it's serene surrounding and central location.

Location, Location, Location!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property. It is located just one block from Scottsdale Blvd., however, it was nice and quiet! The home is equipped with everything you would need to walk in and enjoy your stay. We were impressed with the Welcome Pkg. and Departure Checklist. Very organized and informative.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I notice we missed a star. Our goal is to make your stay as close to perfection as possible. Would you be kind enough to share the reason(s) you didn't give us a 5-star rating? Apparently, we need to correct something to get back to perfect.
