About the property

Renovated 2Bd/1Ba Pet-Friendly Guest House On Acre w/ Privacy & Western Charm.

The Scottsdale Bunkhouse

- 920 square foot Scottsdale free-standing Guest House with 2 bedrooms, open kitchen and great room, 1 full bath

- Fully remodeled in 2014 to include new kitchen, bathroom, flooring, walls, electrical, plumbing, paint - everything

- ALL UTILITIES INCLUDED - HD Cable, Netflix, Water, Sewer, Wireless Internet, Gas and Electric

- For monthly rentals bi-weekly cleaning available

- Full kitchen (including dishwasher) and full size brand new Samsung front-loading laundry in home

-Two spacious patios with one set up as a long bar-height table and the other with four-person table and relaxing adirondack chairs; both are shaded with one on the north and one on the east

- Pet-friendly home with a ton of room for running around and chasing rabbits and birds (maximum weight 45 pounds)

- Situated in a private area of an acre lot with lots of room to breathe; we live in the main house but there is completely separate block wall as well as entrance and exit - it will feel like your own home with your own 1/3-acre lot (see photos)

- Prime, safe Scottsdale location less than a mile west of Scottsdale Road & Shea Boulevard Cul-de-sac street with only 8 homes all on acre lots

Close to: Kierland Commons, Westin, Old Town Scottsdale, downtown Scottsdale, Orange Tree, and everything else you could possibly want to have

- Available September through May

- Ideal for: singles, couples, retirees, small families, people with pets

- Please note a one car limit to be kept on site, no trailers, no motorcycles

If you are looking for a Scottsdale or Phoenix retreat, this is the spot for you. The 'Bunkhouse' sits in the southwest corner of a beautifully maintained north/south acre lot in the heart of Scottsdale. A tall block wall and trees separate this guest house from the main house, so you'll have complete privacy along with lots of room to breathe. (Please check out the photos to see how the lot sets up.)

If you have pets, they are welcome and they will really love the room to run around. We have two very friendly dogs that are kept in the main house portion of the lot, but assuming everyone plays well with others, they can enjoy making some new friends!

About Ben & Stacey

My wife Stacey & I are professionals in our late 30's who have a passion for architecture and interior design. We love the process of purchasing homes in need of some TLC and turning them into beautiful spaces.

Ben & Stacey purchased this house in 2014

Why Ben & Stacey chose Central Scottsdale

This home on Gary Road sits on an amazing cul-de-sac street in the heart of Scottsdale with only 8 homes, all of which are on acre+ lots. And with all due respect to our neighbors, we've got the best homesite of anyone, with north/south exposure and just enough elevation change from front to back to get the views of the mountains at sunset.

The 'Bunkhouse' is the guest house that we fully renovated in 2014, and it sits in its own area at the southwest corner of the lot. The fences & walls are configured so that the Bunkhouse essentially has its own 1/3 acre yard, with a couple patios and plenty of room to relax or have a four legged friend join you.

What makes this house unique

- Freestanding home with private yard

- Perfect for dogs (45 pounds or less)

- Acre lot

- Quiet neighborhood

- Easy access in center of Scottsdale

- Really cool homesite

A pleasant place, well located, and big yard for the dog to chase bunnies.

Only complaint is poor lighting and seating for reading. Kitchen is compact but well equipped, beds are comfortable.

Great neighborhood!

Cute and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a weekend in May 2017. Would absolutely stay here again! The pictures were accurate, it was very clean, it had everything we needed, and the owners were wonderful. It is a casita in the backyard of a home, but you never really saw the owners. And they have two gorgeous and friendly dogs.

It would have been nice to have detailed instructions for the dishwasher and tv remotes (for some reason we really struggle with changing to netflix etc). The wall air conditioners were a bit noisy, especially the one in the living room. But that just may be how they are?

None of these things detracted from how nice the stay was or would prevent us from recommending it to anyone.

This is our second time staying at this property. Both experiences were great! The house is very clean and charming. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We had so much fun we have decided to make this an annual trip.
