About The Owner

We are Mike and Michelle, husband and wife. We have lived in the unit ourselves and maintain it ourselves. Originally we are from New York and Connecticut. We now live in Phoenix and have lived in the Chicago suburbs. Mike is retired from CBS and Michelle works for Kohler Co. We have two dogs and we frequently take them for hikes on the mountain trails in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale. Our daughter lives in Scottsdale and is a licensed real estate agent. Our son is an attorney in Washington D.C. We like to get away occasionally to nearby Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, and Flagstaff.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Scottsdale

We loved Arizona and especially Old Town Scottsdale, and we wanted the unit to live in when we first moved here, and then for rental. It was like when you go on vacation and you say to your husband or wife, 'Wow, I could live here.' Then you do live there and you walk down the street and tourists from all over the world are there enjoying the shops and restaurants practically just outside your door.

What makes this condo unique

Resort atmosphere. 4 Blocks from the center of Old Town Scottsdale. Walking distance to Scottsdale restaurants. Nine-tenths of a mile from Scottsdale Stadium for Giants Spring Training. 1 mile from Fashion Square Mall. 13 minute drive to Sun Devil Stadium at ASU. 18 minute drive from Sky Harbor Airport. Beautiful view of Camelback Mountain from the living room window of the unit. Convenient drive to all the other attractions: University of Phoenix Stadium, Chase Field, Phoenix Open, casinos, hiking, zoo, Desert Botanical Gardens, etc.

Condo was like home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo, had two teenagers with me and they enjoyed the pool every day. It was a quiet area and walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale and eating establishments. The condo was exactly as described with all needed linens and kitchen utensils and very clean. Thank you for sharing your place seemed like home. We will be back and have already recommended to friends and family.

It felt like a friend let us use their condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo, it is as others have described and just what you'd expect if a friend let you use their place- clean, comfortable and stocked with the utensils/pans/appliances/linens etc that you'd need. The pool is beautiful- we swam every night and always had the pool to ourselves. It is walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale and nicely located for access to the freeway for travel to Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa.

Super convenient and clean!

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy to secure this location for my short vacation. The owner could not have been more helpful, and answered every question I had in a timely manner. The building is partially gated with a beautiful pool. Covered parking space in the back. Upstairs, good sized 2 bedrooms and full bathroom as well as a full kitchen. Numerous vacation ideas on a desk in the front room. Wireless internet access, code provided upon arrival. Comfortable sleeping arrangements. The building is a little older but well maintained and quiet. Plenty of street parking if your party has more than one vehicle. Easy access to main thoroughfares and freeways (but not close enough to be a traffic nuisance.) WALKING distance to downtown Scottsdale, where there are numerous shops, restaurants, art galleries and more to explore! I recommend this location, it was great!

Good Location, Quiet Pool; Reasonable Value for the Price

  • 3 of 5

This condo is fine for what it is; an older property that has had a couple of upgrades to make it bearable but is in a really good location. You can walk a few blocks and enjoy the upscale shopping, art galleries and restaurants/bars of Old Town Scottsdale or a baseball game at Scottsdale Stadium, or just take a ride in one of the street-legal golf carts (for tips) to save your feet. Short drives to Tempe, Mesa, Phoenix, a bit longer to Glendale, Surprise, Peoria, etc., but very doable. The old-style pool is not huge, but big enough; the water temperature was perfect; with steps and swim outs. Very relaxing atmosphere. No hot tub. Upstairs unit, no elevator, but a ramp up to the second floor. Covered parking space. Mature orange tree, full of fruit, smelled great near the unit.

One shortcoming for us was that it is not a non-smoking unit, but that was my fault for not asking. There was more sleeping room than we needed, with a trundle bed in the living room, but only one bathroom might make it hard for more than the 4 adults we were. The bathroom had a nice new shower head (complete with instructional video!) good hot water and updated granite vanity, but it's all still wedged into a single small bathroom. The unit only has a few grounded plugs; most are only two-pronged, including those in the bedrooms. Only one TV, but there is cable and wi-fi. Excellent library of best-sellers and interesting books, if you're a reader. Simply and inexpensively furnished, but quite adequate. Quiet neighborhood allowed for good quality sleep, too!

Bottom line: A reasonable unit for the price and location; better if you're not sensitive to the smell of smoke. Owner Mike was great to work with, and fairly represented the unit. It worked fine for two couples. Do not expect 5* accommodations here, but you're not paying for that. We had a great time in Scottsdale. We would go back, for the location and the price.

Owner's Response: We feel that this is a well-written and mostly accurate review of the unit and thank our guest for submitting it. The one issue we have with the review is that the number one rule on the list that all renters sign before occupancy is that there is to be no smoking inside the unit. Although this rule may have possibly been broken at times, we do everything possible to maintain it and rent it as a non-smoking unit.

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in a 2bdrm unit with firm beds and nice bathrooms and a great view of Camelback Mtn!

The pool was cool. The living room spacious and there are many options for outdoor recreation.

A great place to kick back with a drink on a hot afternoon. I really enjoyed my stay here and

the owner was a very nice guy.

Just the right spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice property for someone who wants to enjoy the town and be nicely tucked away to sleep at night. Just a short walk to food and entertainment.
