Why Kevin and Diane chose North Scottsdale

Home Away From Home
My husband and I have been snowbirds in Scottsdale for many years but this is the biggest, cleanest, best equipped condo we have ever rented. This has been our home away from home for 3 months. The condo was beautifully decorated with everything you could ever need. We had many dinner parties and loved all the dishes, cutlery, place mats, candles, big table and chairs, all you need for entertaining. What you see in the pictures is what you get. We were also impressed with Ladera Vista and the level of care and maintenance throughout the complex. The owners, Diane and Kevin, were great and totally accessible, and very helpful at all times. We would highly recommend this condo.
WONDERFUL TIME AT THIS CONDO.....
We stayed in this beautiful condo for a month and enjoyed every minute....it is spacious and comfortable, clean and well-maintained.....it is beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed......it is close to shopping and if one wants to go further, the freeway is close as well........the days were warm so the pool was great.....we loved it. It was quiet and relaxing to sit by the pool and read. We enjoyed being able to sit out on the balcony and have our coffee. One evening we saw about 6 javelinas wander through the complex grounds right below our balcony....very interesting. The listing description and the pictures accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities and we would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
This condo is wonderful. I stayed in this property two months, the first time I have ever spent any time in Arizona. My experience could not have been better. The condo is everything that is posted in the ad. Beautifully appointed, well maintained, and the nicest owners one could ever imagine. A walk across the street gets you to a shopping mall for all of your necessities. A mile away is a huge shopping mall with a Walmart and Sam's Club. Less than 3.5 miles to the TPC of Scottsdale golf course. Less than 10 minutes from hiking trails in the Sonora Desert. A short .8 mile and you can be on the high speed 101 Byway for a quick trip to Phoenix and connections with I-17 and I-10. The condo complex is quiet, small, and nicely maintained. No need to worry about the hot sun baking your vehicle as covered parking is right out in front of the property. A short 3 minute walk gets you to the pool, a perfect place to sit, read, and just enjoy Arizona's beautiful blue sky and bright sun. It is a gated community for added safety. The complex is in a very nice portion of Scottsdale with wonderful walk ways in any direction for your morning exercise. The condo is on the second floor, very quiet. The neighbors are friendly with many of them full time residents.
The owners, were easy to work with, took care of everything, and were most helpful at all times. I recommend this condo, with no reservations, for someone who wants to experience quality living in a beautiful setting and wants to be close to the desert, the mountains, and endless hiking opportunites. Arizona has a lot to offer and endless sights to see, this condo is a great place to start your adventure.
We had a great time during our stay at this lovely condo. Everything in the condo was new.
The owner was a pleasure to work with and was always available to answer any questions we might have. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. We look forward to visiting again next year.
Fun In The Sun
We enjoyed our week's stay in this Scottsdale condo. The owner is pleasant and friendly and available to answer any questions. In the condo the two bedrooms were spacious and the living/dining room area in particular is very nicely decorated with new and modern furniture. We loved the selection of DVD's and blu-ray/DVD player for movie nights. One of our favourite aspects of the condo complex was the pool and hot tub area, which was quiet and relaxing. The location of the condo allowed for easy access to the 101 Loop, so that we could visit Kierland Commons, Desert Ridge Marketplace and Scottsdale Fashion Square for shopping and dining.
Our family was in Phoenix for my son's travel baseball tournament and we stayed in the unit for 3 nights and would highly recommend the condo. It was immaculate, spotless, and decorated in a very modern and aesthetically pleasing manner. It is very large and spacious for a 2 bedroom unit. It was very convenient to have our own parking stall right in front of the unit as well. Having a coded front door that we could set our own code in was VERY handy and eliminated the need to carry around a key. The complex is very quiet and the pool area was close to the unit as well.The owner was always available and very helpful and nice. The area in Scottsdale where the condo is located is in a very quiet and nice area with many stores and restaurants close by. It is very easily accessible off the 101. This unit is great if you have children. Our 2 boys each got their own bed in the second bedroom which was very nice. We enjoyed the Keurig coffee maker and now want to buy one :-) We highly recommend!
There are numerous hiking, biking & walking trails, golf courses, restaurants (our favourite - Soul Cafe) such as Mexican, Chinese, Persian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Burgers, etc.) and lots of shopping all within a few minutes of the condo! Some shopping includes Kierland, Old Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Cave Creek and the outlet mall at Anthem (max. 30 mins).
