Guestbook comments from the owner

We just absolutely loved our stay in this home and with the owner's special touches. We have visited Arizona on many occasions but, really enjoyed this trip because of the sunsets on the mountains. This house is in a central location and close to everywhere we wanted to go from golfing to dinner with friends in Old Town Scottsdale 5 minutes away. We will definitively be back to MountainSide every year! Thanks for the warm hospitality.

This wonderful Mountainside home has the most spectacular views from the 4 different levels of patios and throughout the property and house. Due to the design being literally carved from the mountain, the home has quite a few minor steps and the patios all have quite a few steps some of which are steep as is the driveway. Accessibility should be considered for guests. Property sleeps 8 adults but may accommodate 1 or 2 additional kids as well - call for your party size details.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

Six of us just finished a great stay at Mountainside. This is a wonderful house with amazing views. We loved sitting out on the deck to watch both sunrises and sunsets. Very central to everything in Scottsdale. The house is very spacious and is well equipped. Everyone was very responsive to any questions/requests that we had. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy this great property

significant disrepair for cost

  • 2 of 5

We respect anyone who is willing to share their home and return that respect in how we interact with the property. It is a million dollar view, and has significant deferred maintenance issues. The setting is special, and the bathrooms take advantage of nature, but it is disturbing to see how much mold is growing on the sky lights above you while you shower. One half of the shower works, the other side not. Drawers in kitchen and bathroom drawers had dirt and debris in them, the main TV does not work(note repairing Dec 3), the electronics are outdated, the bedding is torn, the sheets and towels are stained, some plumbing fixtures work, some do not, lights may or may not work, electrical cords are taped where fractured, the clock radio in the master does not work, the outside heater does not work, if you have anything other than a small auto you will struggle to park your car on the main level of the house, etc. We mean well in being honest, to the owner and future renters, as the owner may not be aware. We would want people to know what to expect, for some, that is OK, for us, a clean, functional home would be appropriate for the price.

Peaceful sanctuary with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house do not do it justice. It is truly a special home. It is built right into the rock hill, which allows for many unique features. From the deck, the views go on forever; Camelback mountain, downtown Phoenix , etc. There is an outside kitchen by the pool, which sadly due to rainy weather during our stay we didn't get to take advantage of. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The driveway to the house is quite, steep & narrow - so a larger vehicle could be a challenge. The neighborhood is quiet, but you are close to all the action of Phoenix & Scottsdale. I hope to be back again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful home last week. The layout was perfect for our family of five and we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub! I miss waking up to the beautiful view of Camelback mountain.
