About Jerome and Linda - property owners
Jerome and Linda, your caring host and hostess, designed their custom home on the north side of their 2 1/2 acres; and The Studio and The Casita - nearby, yet far enough to maintain privacy. We are not "absentee owners" who leave you to fend for yourselves. While we respect our guest's space, we are also available for advice and assistance. They designed and oversaw construction of their home, The Casita and the Studio. Linda is a retired educator (reading specialist), "critical thinking" tutor, and professional interior designer. Jerome is a professional mediator, arbitrator and attorney; a twice invited Presenter at the United Nations, who has taught programs in meditation, arbitration, and the energy "arts" such as meditation, yoga and Aikido. Jerome is also a licensed Real Estate Agent operating through Keller Williams Realty. Linda is a retired educator - 25 years a reading and "critical thinking" specialist.
Why Jerome and Linda - property owners chose North Scottsdale
Because "it is so very "Special"! Your vacation Studio is a private, lovely clean home - with a peaceful and "healing" natural presence inside and outside. "In the Sonoran Desert yet within 15 minutes of restaurant, shopping, golf, etc. As owners, we take great pride in our property. We are NOT absentee owners who leave their tenants or a management company to "take-care-of-it-all! Our own home is also located on our 2 1/2 acres - close enough for assistance, guidance, conversation and yet "separate" to maintain privacy. The "Why This Property" relates to the total property and experience, the area and your hosts - The Studio is fairly new to the rental market while The Casita, our other rental, has received numerous excellent review of which we are proud. Excerpts of those testimonials are set forth in the "Reviews" section of The Studio site (upper left "blue" section.")
What makes this House unique
Our guests have visited for a variety of reasons. These include "much needed" rest and recreation, playing on world famous golf courses, attending Cactus League baseball, for medical treatments and recovery (we are within short distance from Mayo and other renowned U.S. hospitals and physicians), the Musical Instrument Museum, horseback riding, cycling and hiking trails, world famous horse shows and all the cultural events of the Scottsdale-Phoenix Metro Area. Barrett-Jackson; Phoenix Open; Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show; Cactus League Spring Training and many more. We are close to all of them. Artists, photographers, naturalists have guested with us because of the intimacy with the Sonoran Desert. Mountain bikers, hikers, climbers, and horse enthusiasts have also guested with us "to be close to it all!" Remember, you can board your horses at our very large horse corral and ride our superb trails.

Very peaceful, scenery amazing and best of all it was quiet. Jerome is awesome
Loved this Studio. Felt so comfortable at this location. Beautiful atmosphere. Up close with nature. Jerome and Linda went above and beyond as host and hostess. We hope to return next year.
A wonderful month in the desert
What a treat to be nestled in such a beautiful area. And Jerome and Linda are the perfect hosts; we consider them friends.
There are numerous walking and hiking trails in the area along with stables. Plus a large selection of books for your reading pleasure.
The Studio is exactly that; a studio. Small and efficient. But the two of us and our dog never felt confined.
Rested and Refreshed!
Was looking for a place for some solitude, rest and healing and this was the perfect place! Just far enough away from the pace and noise of more populated Scottsdale yet stores, restaurants, etc. are close enough. Jerome and Linda, the owners are so attentive and respectful which just added to this great experience!
We have truly been Blessed with our guests- all have been wonderful reflections of people with whom we would want to share our guest home, property and, when requested, our time - and our guest who submitted this testimonial was so perfectly "that!"
Jerome and LInda
Everything about the studio in Scottsdale was PERFECT! Jerome went above and beyond to make my husband and I and our 2 dogs comfortable. It was very clean and the land is beautiful. My dogs loved going on long walks and seeing all the horses. Jerome treated us like family. I would definitely recommend this place if you are visiting Scottsdale. We will definitely be back!
Vacation rentals - requires 'courage" on both sides - owner and renter. From the owner's perspective "who will be in our (guest) home?" - We have been incredibly fortunate, Blessed, whatever label you attach, by our guests. Friendships have been created with guests from within and without the U.S. So too with our new friends who wrote this "testimonial" - and their two dogs (one of which is actually blind).
It is so interesting the peace, healing and balancing the Sonoran Desert brings to us and our guests. There are very few coincidences in life- and those who "find" and visit our 2 1/2 acres of Sonoran Desert always recognize this.
More interesting in that we are but 10 minutes from "that other world" - the top golf courses, restaurants, entertainment and the like. As one guest coined it "The best of both worlds; and I can leave the louder, more active one and be in my peaceful desert home in within minutes." How fortunate we are. Jerome
We are a close drive to world renowned golf courses; Mayo & other hospitals & healthcare facilities; Cactus League baseball; live & cinema theaters; symphony, ballet, opera & other Scottsdale & Phoenix cultural events; 1/2 hour to major lake; scenic hiking, cycling, horseback riding; lakes ( 30 minute drive); Musical Instrument Museum (MIM - 'Only one in the world!); football and basketball (in season). Hiking and Biking on nearby desert trails. NOTE: There is a "pet fee" depending on the dog's size and breed.
We are in "horse-country" where many neighbors have horses and are often seen riding the wonderful trails. Our large horse corral is usually available (3 large "shades") where guests can also have their horses "visit" with them.
Artists and photographers guest with us specifically to "paint" and photograph our scenery, birds, wildlife; beautiful, peaceful, healing and contemplative atmosphere. The desert is a "tuning fork" - helping us find physical and physical and emotional balance and harmony and yet we are within 15 minutes of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and more.
CACTUS LEAGUE BASEBALL: Spring Training baseball under the warm Arizona sun has been a tradition for devoted fans since 1947, when just two teams, the Cleveland Indians and the New York Giants, came here to prepare for the rigors of the long regular season. Today, 15 teams train in the Phoenix metropolitan area in the greatest concentration of professional baseball facilities found anywhere in the United States. For visitors, the Cactus League couldn't be more convenient, with short drive times between ballparks and each an easy drive from our property. Truly, the Cactus League is the premier destination for baseball lovers. GOOGLE Arizona Cactus League for the 2017 Spring Training season.
"This IS Scottsdale!"
