Overview

Phoenix House Rental Photos and Description

Best weather anywhere! Sandals, shorts, warm, and wall-to-wall sunshine!!

UPDATE: We just completed a nearly $40,000 patio addition that includes a 20' long outdoor kitchen and bar with granite countertops, brand new stainless steel BBQ and ice coolers, a 5' fire pit and all new outdoor furniture all set on amazing travertine. A temporary picture is provided. New outdoor furniture pending.

Pack your clubs and your swimsuit ..... our desert sanctuary is perfect for golf lovers and sun worshippers alike. Challenge your friends to a round at Wildfire Golf Club’s Palmer Signature Course. Then cool off in our private pool before settling into a lounge chair for a nap in the sun. This is Phoenix living at its very best!

Perfect for an extended stay with your friends or family, this 4,700-square-foot, five-bedroom vacation rental will feel like home from the moment you step inside the grand foyer.

On one side of the house, you’ll find the massive indulgent master suite. It occupies nearly a third of the main floor and comes with a king-size bed, premium Restoration Hardware linens, an enormous walk-in closet, and a separate shower and Roman tub. Your guests will feel equally pampered by the two guest bedrooms on this floor, which are outfitted with queen-size beds and luxury linens.

The main floor also includes two elegant living areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, formal dining area with seating for up to 10, and—most importantly—access to the private backyard oasis. Spend the afternoon lounging on the covered patio with a drink in hand while your kids play volleyball and basketball in the heated pool. The patio is also lined with misters, which will keep you cool and refreshed even on the hottest summer day. Please note that the pool is heated upon request, and this may incur an additional fee.

As night falls, slip into the hot tub for a relaxing soak as the sun sets over the desert. Then settle into the family room to watch a movie together. You’ll find a collection of Blu-ray movies along with the surround sound system and 52-inch HDTV.

The backyard, family room, and master suite all overlook Wildfire Golf Club’s Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. In fact, we’re situated right on the third-hole tee box, so you can watch players swing away with sweeping views of Pinnacle Peak and the McDowell Mountains in the background. This is one of two golf courses at the JW Marriott (the other is a Faldo course), making our rental a dream for anyone who wants quick access to the green.

Downstairs, you’ll find another full bathroom and two additional guest bedrooms with queen-size beds and luxury linens. The basement is perfect for kids—they’ll love the attached game room, where they can play ping pong, shuffleboard, a foosball table and a pool table or watch movies while the adults chat upstairs.

Looking for a quiet place to check your email or upload photos of your incredible vacation to social media? Our home has a full business center, which includes a computer and a multi-function wireless printer (print, fax, scan and copy) with AirPlay and “cloud” printing capabilities. We also offer Wi-Fi throughout the house.

In addition to all of these amenities, the rental is centrally located in Stonecrest, a luxury community within the heart of Desert Ridge. You can walk to the JW Marriott Resort and Spa, and there are literally dozens of upscale retail stores and restaurants just 5 minutes away at nearby Desert Ridge Marketplace. Just a bit farther drive away you will find the finest shopping and dining destination such as Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarter and the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall.

This lovely home is only missing one thing—you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've been bringing our family to Scottsdale/Phoenix every winter for 7 years. Until last year, we rented a different house every year on VRBO. And then we found this place! This is the first house we have rented more than once. You can tell that the owners really want to offer a nice experience to renters. And with the house comes the most fantastic property manager! His attitude is "how can I make these guests as comfortable as possible?" As a result, we will return every year. No need to look for another rental when we come to Phoenix!

Casa di Sogni! (House of my Dreams)

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better house for our multi-generational family group of 9! Everything we needed was there. Cabinets and pantries are well stocked! The layout of the house was perfect for us, as everyone could find a quiet space to relax. We used the pool daily and ate in more than we expected as it was so easy. John was very helpful before, during and after our vacation, (even mailing us a forgotten item)! The neighborhood was very quiet and very convenient to the Desert Ridge Marketplace. We will definitely return to this beautiful house if we have another opportunity to visit Phoenix!

AMAZING House with a GREAT House Manager

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this house. Plenty of space. Great pool/hot tub area. Perfect location. I could go on and on. John, the house manager, was extremely welcoming and "Johnny on the spot" when you needed him for anything :)

I'd highly recommend staying at this house!

Family re-union for the "boys"

  • 5 of 5

4 brothers and 4 nephews converged on Phoenix for some exhibition baseball, golf and in-home gaming. couldn't have picked a better home. John met us upon our arrival and went over every detail to effectively use the home ( spa heaters, lights, music and tv systems ). Plenty of room for all 8 of us with 5 rooms and an abundance of couches and blow-up beds. Location was great. Quiet with occasional golfers teeing it up on the Palmer course at the Marriott complex off the backyard. Property was spotless and , unlike most houses I've rented, came with a pantry full of "incidentals" that made our shopping and cooking SO much easier and less expensive. ( How much ketchup can you use in a few days?) thanks John for a very enjoyable stay. wiull definitely do it again.
