We spent the winters of 2014-15 and 2015-16 in this lovely home. John was the ideal landlord.

excellent location & home

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for 12 days in Scottsdale area where homes are pricey. This home fit our needs perfectly and was priced below other nearby homes. We traveled with our pet and she enjoyed the tile floors, very private & secure patio and excellent walking area in the gated subdivision. The central location was close to highways and everything we wanted to see and do. Owner was very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Week in Scottsdale!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this lovely home. It had all of the conveniences of home and then some. The pool and spa area were much larger than I had expected, and the kids LOVED spending time there. The house is decorated very nicely with high end appliances and was immaculate. Having three bedrooms was a plus for us, as our two tween kids had their own space. The neighborhood was just lovely. It was peaceful and very quiet, which we appreciated coming from the Eastern Time zone and needing to go to bed early the first couple of days until we adjusted to Arizona time. John was wonderful to rent from. He was great at providing information and answered all questions immediately. We would highly recommend this home!

Fantastic desert getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is a fantastic place for a couple or family to enjoy all Scottsdale and Phoenix have to offer or to just stay close to home and relax on the patio or near the pool. It included all the amenities one could desire in a safe, clean and friendly community. The beds were extremely comfortable and offer many sleeping options for different family configurations.

I also noticed the pocket door on the kitchen would allow for late night card playing or visiting in the eating space while others could sleep soundly.

This home is very close to the large and clean neighborhood pool. The back patio is shaded and relaxing and cactus-free which was a huge bonus for my toddler.

The owner was incredibly nice and welcoming throughout the whole process and even walked us through the home over the phone upon our arrival.

The only negative was having to leave. I hope we can rent this home again in the future.

Owner's Response: Jessica, Thank you for your comments. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and greatly appreciate your writing such a detail recommendation. I hope to see you back again soon. I can't believe that its going to snow in May in many parts of the country this year. Wow, and we thought April snows were already bad enough. You and your family are welcome to come back to the sunshine anytime. Thanks again. John

Good base...

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week, found the home to be just fine (always a little reluctant till actually seeing the place). John was a very accommodating owner with a nice home. Location is probably as good as any as just about anywhere is 20-45 minutes away with the Phoenix traffic (spring training, horseback, old town Scottsdale, even took in a hockey game). Neighborhood pool is a gem although the gate is a pain in the butt! I'd stay again.

We'd like to thank John for being the most courteous owner we've ever met. He was very thoughtful about everything, from helping us with direction form the airport to the coupons booklet we could use for groceries shopping. The house was immaculate when we got in, location is really good and rather close to the golf courses we played. House amenities is really good, especially the rain shower head in master bedroom and the modern smart TV (that we used a lot for Netflix etc..)

Overall good stay and I'd recommend this to anyone.
