Lovely Two Level, Two Bathroom Condo in great North Scottsdale location. Privacy - One bedroom/bath on each floor and nice walk in closets in each bedroom. King sized bed in the master bedroom, queen sized bed in the main floor bedroom and a queen sized sleeper in the couch. Very nice leather couch and chairs in the living room and a nice sized dining room table just off the kitchen. Completely equipped with everything you will need for your vacation. Nice flat screen tv's in each bedroom to go along with the larger one on the main living room. Our complex has two beautiful pools, a hot tub at the main pool, a very nice bbq grill at the main pool as well. A decent gym has recently been added. We also have one covered parking spot.
We are a Canadian couple who love coming to Arizona so we decided it was a great place to purchase a vacation home. And what a great Scottsdale location as well! We love Scottsdale but as Canadians we have limited times we can visit. Therefore, we have a very capable local property manager to look after all of our guests.
Ryan VanEijnsbergen purchased this condo in 2010
Excellent proximity to just about anything you would want to do - shopping, fine dining, casual dining, casinos, golfing.. you name it, it's close by! Even great hiking is just a short drive away to some of the most amazing hiking trails you've even seen.
We had a terrific month-long stay at this property. Fabulous location, close to EVERYTHING! The Allison property itself was lovely - lush, beautiful landscaping and 2 fabulous pools/spas. This unit is ideally situated in the complex, between the 2 pools and not near the parking lot (so nice and quiet, no trash collection noise!) and with a lovely palo verde tree outside in full bloom -- we sat on the balcony and watched the hummingbirds flit about while we ate lunch - so cool!
The unit itself was well-stocked and had comfy beds (good for my back). (1 king, 1 queen) We had everything we needed and were extremely comfortable in terms of being able to cook, do laundry, hang out, etc. The owner, Ryan, was incredibly responsive to our questions. When a minor repair was required, Ryan had the workman there immediately (and in the 1 hour window they'd promised ) -- it was handled so professionally we were very impressed.
We were so bummed to leave! Definitely put this one on your list. We would certainly stay here again.
We had some issues with this unit, primarily associated with the cleanliness of the unit upon check in. We stayed the month of February, 2016. The owner had a management company in charge of the unit and they had a cleaning company that did not meet minimum standards. The showers were not cleaned, open food was left in the cabinets and refrigerator and the kitchen had not been cleaned. We ended up taking a full day of our time to clean the kitchen and bathrooms fully. In discussion with the owner, we were to have been told that there were stains in the carpet and that the carpet was going to be replaced after the busy season, but that did not happen. The carpet was cleaned while we were there and the carpet guy said he hadn't seen anything quite like that. Owner is committed to replacing the carpet on the main level. The furniture is fine, beds were comfortable, TV's great and internet service fine. The owner did accommodate us with some refund on our monthly rent or this rating would be much lower. Owner has stated that he will take over the management of the unit directly which is a good move. We likely would not rent this particular unit again due to proximity to parking lot and the number of stairs involved in residing in the unit, but that is our preference. Unit is relatively close to pool and the complex has a very nice pool and bbq grill. Location to sights/things to do is very good.
Had a conference at the Talking Stick Resort, but opted to stay at the Allison with a colleague instead. This two bedroom, two bathroom was perfect for our needs.
- Great location. Near stores, the highway, etc.
- Very nice pool. Though we seldom used it, we sat by it daily. Lovely and well kept.
- Condo was perfectly furnished. Large flat screen TVs in each bedroom, plus central living area. It had some essentials in the fridge, and simply had anything you need for a week-month stay.
- Bathrooms were both large and very nice.
- Owner has a book about the Allison and condo - answered EVERY question we had!
- Owner/Mgr were GREAT to work with. Deposit returned in a timely manner, directions were spot on to find the place, code was set as promised.
- Grounds are PERFECT.
- VERY safe feeling complex and area!
Really none. This place is a gem!
I am hoping to return next winter with hubby - this place is a perfect spot to relax. Very safe area.
The only thing I would suggest is to bring a portable GPS if renting a car. When not familiar with Scottsdale, we found ours to be so helpful (and the rental companies want a fortune for them!)
Five stars to this place!!!! Thank you for offering this as a rental!
My wife and I were down with another couple over New Years and had a wonderful time. The condo was big, bright and incredibly clean. More then enough room and a great layout with two levels to give everyone there own space. The pool and outdoor BBQ area is beautiful. In a great central location close to shopping, dining, golf, and football stadium. Would definitely recommend this condo! Will hopefully be back next year!
As a first time user of VRBO, I found using this specific site and our stay at the Allison a wonderful experience. Our condo was clean, decorated nicely and very comfortable. Little touches like the hard cover books for reading, the blanket throw for the sofa, the toiletries, laundry supplies to the extra food items in the pantry and fridge was a pleasant surprize. The location was great, close to shopping, the freeway and medical clinics. The pool area was lovely and surrounding property very well manicured. The property manager was super helpful and so very flexible with our tight schedule with booking close to the last minute. I have already recommended to my friends to try VRBO and we will definitely book through them again.
First let us start by saying we had a fantastic time in Scottsdale. We have been twice before and this was our best experience
The unit was modern and spacious . It felt like a home away from home with all it's amenities. Shops and restaurants are just minutes away. Easy access to anywhere in the Phoenix area made it an ideal vacation destination
The pool was like an oasis. Surrounded by Palm trees and situated perfectly in the middle of the complex. What is amazing is how quite it was.
Grilling by the pool enjoying the warm evenings we are definitely returning in 2015
Thanks guys for a incredible time
