About the property

2 berdrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4

In the heart of the Southwest, everything is easily accessible from this perfectly located condo. Just two miles from magnificent Camelback Mountain, 10-15 minutes northeast to Old Town Scottsdale, and ASU. Papago Park, Botanical Gardens and the Phoenix Zoo are all just a hop, skip and a jump from this beautiful condo. There are golf courses in every direction or you can go tubing at the Salt River for a change of pace. The Grand Canyon is just under a 4 hour drive so why not stop in Sedona along the way to see the Chapel in the Hills or take the kids to Slide Rock State Park. You may not want to leave this great condo and complex but should you decide to venture out, the possibilities are endless. Please also see Property No. 155621.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There were special touches throughout this rental! As we entered, there was a lovely bouquet welcoming us to our vacation home. The decorating had the touch of someone who had given special thought to, as well as, "eye appealing" amenities. The kitchen area was well stocked with dishes, utensils, and pans. We ate most of our meals at the rental. The laundry was convenient - next door. Even better, we never heard any noise from the machines, which were new. This ground floor rental was convenient to the parking of our auto which was under shelter and just behind our condo. There were games in the closet, and with our 2 granddaughters, we spent a couple of evenings playing "Life", "Apples to Apples" and "Concentration" until their parents returned to take them to bed. The owners had given excellent directions before we arrived, and we found them to be very open in addressing prior questions. Across the street from this complex was a Walgreen store and just down the street, a short distance, was the Fry's grocery store and a nice bowling alley. The keys had a Fry card which was used when we shopped. The location was only a short drive to Historic Scottsdale, Arizona State University (where we attended a Women's Basketball game), and Freeways which made it easy to get around the greater Phoenix area. A brisk morning walk to a park area near by, was a nice way to begin the day. There are many nice restaurants near by as well. We enjoyed US Egg. We found that after a busy day, the beds were comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet, and we had a good night's rest. We highly recommend this property as a relaxing and enjoyable vacation rental.

Very Nice Complex

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I ever rented a condo, (don't know why in all this years I haven't) and it was a pleasurable experience. I'm so glad this one was at ground level because as usual I bring too many outfits and would have hated to climb the stairs. The condo was well stocked with anything you would need for your stay, even batteries for the clock that was stopped. It was clean and Jim & Peggy provided excellent instructions for wifi, where keys were located and so on. I spent a lot of time at the pool. It's very well taken care of as well as the whole complex. Very relaxing place to be for sure. Very friendly people I met at the complex. It's close to grocery stores and restaurants and some hiking mountains that I went to every morning. Down the street is Camel Back Mountain. I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks again Jim & Peggy for letting me stay at your Condo! :o)

This condo is all that it is advertised. The ddevelopment is older but well maintained and quiet.

  • 3 of 5

The condo and development is older and dated. The furnishing are large and plush and dated as well. The condo is clean and quiet if a bit dark as are many floor level condos. For the price the unit is very nice but know what you are getting an older unit with popcorn ceilingd, over stuffed furniture, etc. If cozy snd quiet with a great location at reasonable price is what you want this fits the bill, just don't expect an updated modern condo with granite countertops, wood floors and/or new carpets and you will enjoy your stay. We did.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you felt the unit was cozy and quiet and reasonably priced. We do try to depict exactly what we are offering in our advertising, including providing 24 pictures of the property and interior of the unit. That being said, your review gives us the opportunity to say that we are currently doing a full remodel which will include new kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, tile flooring (which should brighten up the unit), baths, etc. We think you'll be pleased should you have the opportunity to return to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Best, Peggy and Jim

Can't summarize awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, South West decor and convenient to shop and coffee. The kitchen was well stoked with cooking utensils, the wifi, the air condition and paper products were all there. After 5 days we had to leave, and I felt remorseful, it had become like home.

Excellent Location, Great Value for the Money

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I did a week long golf junket to Phoenix and found that this 2 bedroom condo fit the bill nicely, especially since we found this property not too long before our booked dates. The condo was clean and well laid out and we especially loved the community pool area; lots of room with plenty of lounge chairs, a nice sized pool and a nice hot tub and outdoor shower. We found the location very handy, only 10 minutes from Old Towne Scottsdale with plenty of amenities nearby and easy access to area golf courses or freeways if we had to venture further out. The second bedroom only had single beds, so it made it a bit uncomfortable to sleep in. We'd recommend replacing the single beds with a double or queen bed for the future. Also, upgrade the home entertainment system with a proper cable package. There were no sports channels/golf channel and no listing channel. It took forever to scroll through the channels and we missed the NCAA Championship basketball game as a result. Jim was gracious enough to add a sports package to the cable package while we were still there. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and good value for what we paid.

Owner's Response: Jim and I wanted to thank you for your recent review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to accommodate most, if not all, of your needs. Because we want our guests to be completely satisfied with their experience and due in part to your helpful feedback, we have since switched cable providers and believe we now have a much more user friendly package for our guests to enjoy. Regarding the twin beds in the guest bedroom... Since a large number of our guests are families, the current set up seems to work for the larger percentage. However, we do have a twin bed converter in the closet that converts the beds into a king for situations such as yours or when we have two couples visiting the area. We never want any of our guests to be uncomfortable. Hopefully you'll be returning and will be able to make use of the converter for future trips.
