About Tom & Gretchen Jacobs

My parents have been coming out to Scottsdale for Spring Training since they were kids in the 1950's and have very fond memories. After I moved to Scottsdale, I met my husband and we have two beautiful girls. Together with our parents, we purchased this home for family visits and some day, for our daughter who is severely disabled. In fact, all income derived from this home is for her treatment and long term care. Your time with us helps to enable a safe and meaningful life for a girl facing overwhelming challenges.

Tom & Gretchen Jacobs purchased this house in 2011

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a well kept property with all the basics. The kitchen has a nice set-up with plenty of room to move around in. It was the perfect place to rest after long days full of outings and it is centrally located. All the details have been thought of here! Hope to go back and take a spin on the tricycle next time! ; )

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year escaping the cold winters of Chicago and we opted for a house considering all the company that also wants to escape to sunshine and warm temps. This property has everything you could ask for in a home away from home! The house is spotless, well- appointed, very comfortable and private. Didn't take long to settle in. The astro turf front yard is excellent for kids and dogs and enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets behind Camelback Mountain. The back patio is perfect for dining al fresco and entertaining. Plenty of room in the expansive two car garage and huge laundry room. If you want to be located within minutes of Old Town, great restaurants and shopping, this is a find. Highly recommend this property. The owners are a pleasure and ensured our stay had no worries. We loved it so much, we booked again for next year. The only downside is, the 3 months went by so fast! Can't wait to return!

Spacious, amazing views, perfect location, and a quiet neighborhood too!

  • 5 of 5

I could not be more happy with our stay! My family and I which includes two small children and two dogs stayed here for over two months. The location is excellent, the view is beautiful, the neighborhood is peaceful. Two yards make this home ideal for entertaining, and spacious for children and or pets! You could host an entire event in the yard areas. The home is very clean, up to date, and cozy. The owners are amazing, kind, and extremely thoughtful! This is an excellent place to stay on your next vacation or long term rental. Five plus starts, highly recommend!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, comfortable house conveniently located near old town Scottsdale and Camel Back Mountain, which is certainly worth the hike. We particularly enjoyed the oranges in the back yard!!

Stylish, modern home near Old Town Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

Third visit in 3 years, so obviously we're sold on it. It's a beautiful home on the inside, recently renovated. As we've been back every year the owners continue to add improvements. Fun, large, and private front yard with high-quality astroturf, perfect for running around with kids or a dog. Private enclosed back yard for a BBQ. Great location -- quiet, private, but a few minutes from downtown Scottsdale and under 20 minutes to the airport, zoo, botanical gardens, etc. We miss Papago Park already...!
