Massage therapist referral available on request.

15 min away...just a couple freeway exits, is an amazing aquatic park that is open for public access and day use.... great for teens and pre teens! You can google: scottsdaleaz dot gov

I really love my home and look forward to sharing it with some great folks who will do the same. If there are some special circumstances ie: Mayo clinic patients, or other medical needs, I am happy to help accommodate as much as possible...and will try to provide rides to appointments, etc. Prayer is FREE and will be lavished on all who would like it. :-)

Due to my faith, I am unable to host any unmarried couples who plan on sharing a bedroom. I really appreciate your understanding on this policy. Super duper Yeshua blessings to all who read this!!

Insurance is required on all bookings. It is best for both the host and guest, and I do so thank you for understanding. Accidents do happen, and your vacation should not be stressful or costly. My home is highly upgraded with many amenities, and I really work hard to keep it that way. :)

++++If you are hyper sensitive to dogs or peanuts this is not the house for you! My hyper-allergenic dog does visit the property.....and shuffleboard wax is peanut based.

Massage chair info: One session is like hours by a human. This chair can do your whole body at once, so you receive hours of time and attention to your body in just minutes of time. I have had a multiple hour massage weekly for years, and this chair beat his massage hands down for the time and the price.

Chair info at: elitemassagechairs dot com Chair name: robo-pad

80-bladder comprehensive full body compression massage with dual synchronized motors. Not just one compressor but 2, so you can have multiple airbags in both the upper and lower body functioning at the same time, not just one at a time like other chairs.

26 airbag arm massage set to the exact musculature of the arm with 3D balance traction. Seat, hip and thigh massage set to the exact curvature of the buttock with air and vibration. Comfortable ergonomic design fits almost anyone, up to 6’6″ and 300 lbs.

Multiple airbag shoulder and upper arm massage targets specific acupoint. Back-Waist, pelvic tilt, twist and swing to help adjust the spine. Adjustable head pillow up or down 4″ for a better head and neck massage.

Lower body stretch programs combine with pelvic tilt and swing to provide chiropractic like traction. 9+ inch footrest length extension with an overall 85 inch possible length can fit almost anyone. Armrest position sliding follows the user back a full 27° to allow hand an arm massage in any recline angle.

Thai Sole Gua Sha Massage, bottom of the foot rollers. Read more on reflexology here. Leg massage, similar to the technology now being used at Mayo Clinic to increase circulation and prevent blood clots. Magnetic Therapy, new to massage chairs 8 low-grade 300cc magnets may improve blood flow in underlying tissues.

What This Means For You and Your Body

3D Technology and True 3D The rollers of the chair not only travel up and down, but in and out. This is the rarest of massage chair features and can only be found on the very highest end models.

3D Body Scanning.....Every body is unique, and your massage chair should know that. 3D Body Scanning allows the chair to customize its program for your individual frame, so you get a massage tailored just for you

Connect your Bluetooth, and listen to your favorite tunes right through the Elite Robo-Pad™ built in speakers. Enhance the sensory enjoyment of your massage with the music from your favorite Pandora or Spotify stations!

Air and Mechanical Lower Body Massage The combined effects of air and mechanical massage in the leg rest make this the most comprehensive lower body massage available, enhancing circulation and aiding the Lymphatic system.

Quad-Roller Back Massage System Four rollers simulate the hands of a massage therapist, with kneading, tapping and rolling functions. The Quad-Roller system provides greater coverage of your back and a much more lifelike massage, particularly with the “grasping” motion distinct to the Robo-Pad, which creates a truly lifelike massage of the shoulders to relieve tension and stress.

Seat and thigh massage Compression massage in the seat and thigh area provides luxurious, stimulating and soothing relief to your bottom. With 35.5 inches of travel, the massage rollers begin below the seat cushion and work all the way up to your ears.

About Vicki Lacy

I am an awesome daughter of the Living God! I have traveled the world, and now looking to share my amazing home with others..... I am just back from Bethel Bible School, and Israel, and pray that the Lord brings great folks into my home to be blessed and to enjoy the amazing place of north Scottsdale/Phoenix (I am right on the border ) in the Valley of the Sun. I am responsible, college educated, and yes, you may have guessed....a follower of Jesus, who is our Messiah.

Vicki Lacy purchased this house in 2002

Why Vicki Lacy chose Phoenix

Because it rocks, is awesome, and I can't wait to share it! I fell in love with this home, the view and the area over a decade ago...and have had no interest to move since....well...maybe to Israel, now that I have been there.....

What makes this house unique

This may be one of the few homes outside of Japan that folks can use a Toto 'do everything for you' toilet....and most folks have never had the pleasure of walking barefoot on soft, warm, cork flooring. Both are a pleasure worth trying for sure!

I will also leave you one full bottle of propane for the outside heater on patio for your use...beautiful nights to sit outside this time of year! You will have coffee, half and half, and all the comforts of home available for your use/enjoyment! I will do everything I can / think of to make your stay enjoyable and need to run to store for basic items that you may need like bug spray, Band-Aids, spices, etc. I will tidy up every couple days for you, to make your stay more enjoyable, and not all about dishes!

***** I mean no offense, but I am unable to host unmarried couples who plan on sharing the same room. This is a part of my values, and my desire to maintain my home as a house of worship and honor to my Lord and Savior. Thank you so much for understanding, and know this policy is one of love and not judgement.

Ps I do have personal items in the home, as I sometimes stay there, and it was my home for many years....if you want a sterile vacation home, this would not be a good home for you. :-) Pls help yourself to these items if you need them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Vicki, for welcoming us into your beautiful home. We had a wonderful stay and you went way above "the call of duty" to make our vacation special.

Blessings, Rania & Pat

Great house to be able to go and relax without having to deal with any normal accommodation hassles

  • 5 of 5

From the swim spa to the outdoor area, to the nicely appointed home, this property is incredibly inviting and relaxing. I wish that we would have had a couple of more days to relax in the backyard, take in a little sun, and just be in the house.

Vicki was incredibly nice and was very cognizant to not be an interruption when helping to maintain the home, swim-spa or anything else. Our flight got in very late and she was very gracious in meeting us at midnight to let us in and didn't seem bothered by it in the least.

The house was a highlight of our trip.

Great View!

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice place to come back to after our busy daily travels. It was a nice community to be in. There were alot of mosquitos, but that was likely related to it being monsoon season. I would recommend an instruction book and self entry on arrival to streamline things, while making it easier for the guest to use equiptment in the home. All the best tou you! Thank you for the lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kara..... I appreciate your stay. Most my guests have told me they prefer me meeting them and walking them thru the home to explain items and how to use them vs having the huge flip book that takes them days to read/understand. :-)

Fabulous Family Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have asked for a better home! The "game room" was extremely well equiped, and we enjoyed many hours of competitive play!

The home itself was well appointed, and we were all amazed at how Vicky encouraged us to use any and everything she had! That included coolers for our day at the nearby lake, floating devices for the spool, the use of a massage chair, porch misting machines, bicycles, high end appliances, washer and dryer, condiments, coffee, tea, indoor sauna and anything else we came across!!!

The home is located in a quiet neighborhood, with walking trails nearly out the front door! We very much enjoyed the close proximity to downtown Phoenix(20 minutes?), and the peaceful setting of the backyard.

Can't offer enough kudos to Vicky and her graciousness!
