About Salvatore Abbate

My wife and I have lived in Scottsdale for over 30 Years and we have 6 Children and several family members in AZ. We love to entertain and when we lived in this home, it was set up for entertaining. When we upgraded to our current home which is 8,000 sq ft and only 15 minutes away. we pretty much left all of our furniture and entertainment features in the home for everyone else to enjoy.

Salvatore Abbate purchased this house in 1999

Why Salvatore Abbate chose Phoenix

This was our personal home for several years. We just purchased a 8,000 sq ft home and decided to turn our existing home into a vacation rental. This home has a lot of upgrades and entertainment features that are not found in most homes. We lived here and entertained here for years and have done a lot to the home for our personal enjoyment and now our renters get to enjoy the same. The home is in an incredible location and close to everything in Scottsdale. Every renter that we have had so far tells us the photos don't do this property justice. They say the home is amazing. If you are in the Phoenix area and would like to see the home before renting it, just let us know and we will give you a tour.

What makes this house unique

We really loved the layout of this home. When you first walk through the front door, you will see the dining room and living room and through the large window you will see the back yard outdoor living area, and pool with waterfalls. If you walked down the hallway to the left you will enter the Master Bedroom which is on its own on that side of the house. If you walked to the right you will pass the queen bedroom and enter into the very large kitchen and family room. There's also one more bedroom on this main floor which is as the end of the hallway. This main floor has 3 bedrooms with two full bathrooms and also a powder bathroom.

If you take the stairs downwards you will see the very large movie theater with theater drapes to your left. If you make a right you will see the 3rd full bathroom and two more very large bedrooms each with its own King Beds.

We also have 3 Queen Air Beds that are about 24' tall and very comfortable. Any of the 4 bedrooms with King Beds are large enough to accommodate a queen air bed. A lot of renters will put the two of the queen air beds in the movie theater between the front row and the movie screen. This movie theater is a great room to sleep in making it the 6th room in the house.

As of this year, we now have a very large leather sectional in the main family room that can also sleep another person and we have two additional kids air mattresses available as well.

The house comes with some kids toys, a car seat, a high chair, a pack n play, and a Stroller/Jogger. If you need any other baby equipment like a crib, you can do a quick Google search and there are several rental companies that will deliver and set up cribs before your arrival. Just let us know before hand and we can give the company access to the home so everything is set up when you arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you for opening your home to our family. The home was incredible. We have been renting vacation rentals for several years and this is by far the best home we have stayed in. Your hospitality was great and my kids loved the movie theater. We all enjoyed singing Karaoke (what an incredible system you have) . The bedrooms and linens were EXCELLENT and also the location was great. Thanks once again, you made our visit to Arizona so much better.

Amazing Venue for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

There were some issues with the ice maker and freezer not working correctly, and the hot tub wasn't working, etc. However overall it was fabulous. I was thrilled that we were able to play our favorite playlist, piped into every room as well as in the back yard huge, covered veranda; the theater required a bit of setting up, but Salvatore easily got us up and running, and it was the ultimate family movie experience!

The lights in the back yard at night made it feel like we were in a tropical resort while swimming in bathtub warm water. It was heaven! This house is huge, and very comfortably sleeps a lot of people, and allows folks to gather in different areas, making a large party so much more enjoyable.

We also really got some wonderful family photos that were accentuated beautifully with the rich, warm colors on the walls and furniture.

We looked forward to doing this again in the coming years. Even better than expected!

Everyone loved this home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were four couples that really enjoyed all the house offered. Each couple had their own King Size very comfortable bed, which was important since we were four couples. The large great room / Kitchen area was perfect for all of us to hang out and enjoy. We really enjoyed having wine and singing karaoke in that room. The only issue we had was the first day, the outside misters were not turning on. After a quick text message, the owner had his maintenance guy over within two hours and had it up and running. Being that it was summertime, the misters were great. We are planning on coming back next year to this home. Definitely Five Stars.

Incredible Vacation & Home

  • 5 of 5

I'm not one to take the time to write reviews, but this home certainly deserves my effort. Accommodations were MORE than what I had expected!

The "nice things" - pool, spa, drop down movie screen on the main floor, movie theater in the basement, grill, putting green, sound system, etc. - all contributed to allowing us to have a wonderful time with friends and family.

We were able to sleep comfortably and have space when we needed it! When it came time for all of us to gather together the layout had so many options. We were in Arizona during the hot season, and the outside misters, and awning were great. The mature landscaping of the back yard felt like a tropical oasis even in AZ.

I have nothing to offer about how anything could be added or improved to the home or experience to make it any better. We hope to be back one day.

Great stay. Sal is very helpful and the house was just as expected based on reviews. Could use some TLC but overall it was a perfect place for our group of 8 golfers.

Wonderful place for the family to gather to celebrate a special occaision

  • 5 of 5

We were in AZ to celebrate our daughter's graduation from ASU. The house became the meeting place for our family both local and afar to gather and enjoy the great weather in a fabulous venue. The house is very well equipped for entertaining. We loved the outdoor space and enjoyed it from early morning to late evening. The house layout was perfect for the grandparents to have main floor bedrooms and baths. The décor is so different from what we are used to in New England and we really enjoyed it.

The home is located in one of the top area's of Scottsdale. Located South of the 101 Freeway and 3 miles from Scottsdale Rd. you have quick easy access to Amazing Restaurants, Shopping, Spas, Golf Courses and the Famous Barrett Jackson Car Show. One of the reason's we have several returning renters each year is the location of the home, the spacious layout and the fun entertaining activities in the home. Everyone always compliments us on the super comfortable beds and bedding.

As a vacation home rental family that has rented over 20 different homes around the US and abroad, we know what to look for and expect in a vacation rental. We put all of the things we would expect in a vacation rental home and a lot more that you normally don't find when renting vacation homes.
