About Owner/Manager

I am employed as a merchant sailor and travel extensively. The desert reminds me of the peace I enjoy at sea and will some day retire here in the south west.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Terravita

I looked at many places around the Phoenix and Scottsdale area but found nothing like Terravita and have never looked back.

What makes this house unique

The piece and quiet and being able to walk to stores and restaurants and the resort atmosphere and host of activities reminds me that there is little reason to travel far.

A True 5 Star Home In An Upscale Community

  • 5 of 5

This is a Wonderful Property! This is an upscale secure community. This owner has taken care of every detail and amenity. He is so responsive and provides real customer WOW! It is a true home away from home. The home is well appointed with lovely decorator touches. The property is very clean and well-maintained. It's so close to the Terravita Country Club and the soon to be completed renovated Terravita Community Center, you can walk. The house has everything you need: luxurious bath towels/bedding and the kitchen is so well equipped , even a food processor, blender and crockpot. There is lots of storage space and closet space. The owner has provided bicycles and helmets for you to use. We enjoyed morning walks through the Terravita nature trails and evening bike rides through the community. It is a very comfortable home and the casita is a real plus with it's own stacked washer/dryer, living room, bath, kitchenette, bedroom and walk in closet. It even has its own private patio. Our guests felt so pampered. We loved the spa. It was great to use after golf. The covered outdoor area off the main house is perfect. It has a motorized awning to even extend that covered area more. We often ate dinner or lunch by the pool. The gas fire pit was so fun to use on those chilly evenings and to make s'mores for dessert. There are spectacular sunsets out the front window that you can enjoy from the front patio or from the dining room and kitchen. You are so close to Kierland Commons, Cave Creek and Carefree. There's always lots going on in Phoenix and Scottsdale and this location is perfect, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Phoenix, but close enough to enjoy all the events. We stayed for 3 months and enjoyed every minute of it. We would definitely recommend this property. You will be thrilled.
