About Dana Thornton

Born and raised in a small town in Texas, I spent summers fishing, sailing, and riding my horse. I came to visit Scottsdale in 1990, fell in love with the city and the beautiful desert and decided to make it my home. I met my husband Greg in 1992, and we have been inseparable ever since. We own a technology marketing company together. I am also a 3rd generation designer, and my passion is architecture and design. We own several residential rental properties, as well as 2 commercial properties and 3 properties in beautiful Sanctuary Belize.

Dana Thornton purchased this house in 2012

Why Dana Thornton chose Phoenix

First of all, you can not beat the location, or the weather. No scraping ice or shoveling snow. No sticky humidity that makes your curls drop the minute you leave home. And no mosquitos! Granted, it is a little warm in the summer, but 'it's a dry heat', then 8 months of pure heaven!

What makes this house unique

I am a stickler for cleanliness, soft beds and luxurious linens. I am a Marriott girl and I expect them when I travel, and I do not skimp on them for my guests. And CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!!! Pottery Barn quilts and soft white linens you can SEE are super clean. Add in some feather pillows, and the most expensive, fluffy towels you can buy at Bed Bath and Beyond, and the little slice of heaven is complete. Call me and book it today!

Wonderful property with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Dana and Linda did a wonderful job getting the home ready and adding all sorts of personal touches to make my family very comfortable. My father was having surgery at Mayo (only 10 minutes away), and it was a perfect place for my family to stay for a couple weeks. It provided a "home away from home" during a stressful time.

The home is incredibly well maintained and is incredibly well stocked from the kitchen to wonderful linens and towels. The outdoor area with the pool, spa and number of sitting areas was a relaxing retreat. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone.

Cozy, immaculate home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky to find this perfect home to stay in for the month we were in Phoenix. Everything about it was perfect, great location, decorated beautifully, owner was a dream to work with....I could go on and on! We arrived on New Years Eve and she had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us. Hopefully our next visit the home will be available!!

Owner's Response: Hi Vickie, I'm so happy you were pleased with my home, and I was able to help make New Year's Eve that much more special for you and your husband. I hope you are able to come back again. We are in the process of adding a pool and a spa currently, so you next visit will be that much more special and relaxing! Sincerely, Dana Thornton Homeowner / Property Manager

When I entitled this review "a blessing in disguise " I meant just that! I'm from Las Vegas, NV. I had been planning what I believe to be a wonderful birthday trip to take the edge off of turning 35 (*dramatic music inserted here!) I had family coming from out of town to celebrate with me. We drove approximately 5hrs to get to what was described/depicted to be another 5 star home (not this home I'm reviewing of course.) Let me put it this way the 5hrs it took to get there minus the 5 star home and experience we received once we got there could equal exactly what I'd rate the other home (5-5= you get the point!) We were devastated to say the least! So imagine no place to stay , family members all gathered and the age 35 starring at you... Not pretty! So all I could do is go to google and pray for a miracle! Low and behold I was blessed to find this home and a true Godsent lady named Dana! She took us in this home and we instantly felt like we were home! The house was immaculate, the furnishings were superb and the peace you felt in there was priceless! Dana went out of her way to make a total stranger feel special and make it a birthday to remember! I kind of took this as a new parable in my life (to the age 30)... No matter what happens God has a way to turn what looks negative into a complete positive! So with All this being said how could I not give a positive review!!! This home is 5 star, but I believe it also makes for a 5star experience to all who enter.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely home. Comfortable, clean, beautifully furnished, very nice kitchen. Seemed brand new. Outdoor area was nicely furnished and shady in the mornings and late afternoons. It is well located near Desert Marketplace with many restaurants and a large grocery store, a very short drive. Also close to the 101 loop for getting around greater Phoenix area. The owner was quick to reach by phone or email and very nice and helpful. I would recommend this as a place to stay. It suited our multigenerational group well, including the toddler.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the home and were so comfortable. That's the best compliment I can receive! I work diligently to apply the same attention to detail, quality furnishings, linens and kitchen wares that I use in my own home, so it's really rewarding when it makes my guests happy! Thanks again, I look forward to having you and your family back soon! - DANA
