Guestbook comments from the owner

My experience was nonpareil and far surpassed expectations. Mr. Meyer responded to all my correspondence immediately and thoroughly. The waterfall pool is heated, clean and fun. There's a great view of camelback mountain from the lounge chairs at the top of the waterfall. The huge kitchen had all the amenities required to cook everything I wanted. The beds were clean, high quality and aesthetic. The house is strategically located for shopping and entertainment. Overall fabulous experience!

Awesome House!!

  • 5 of 5
What an exceptional place! This house was perfect for us. We had 3 couples in our group and could not have been more comfortable! The house is absolutely beautiful and was outfitted way better than we had expected! The sound system was a nice touch too. We loved the backyard even though we were there in August!!! We'll definitely come back - thanks again for everything!!!

I spent 6 nights in this home with 4 other women for a girl's weekend. The home was lovely and for the most part clean, however some of the dishes were not clean and had to be washed. The ensuite off of the master bedroom was spacious as was the closet. The master bed slept 2 comfortably; however, the other two bedrooms only slept one each; therefore, the blow up bed was required and lost air throughout each night. The main bathroom toilet flushed intermittently on its own and had to be disabled each night due to the noise. The shower in that bathroom did not work which meant 5 women - one shower. The window sills between the glass and screens were filthy.

The surround sound was confusing, but we managed to get it working in the house. After many frustrating attempts to get the outdoor speakers working we were informed by the owner that the remote for the outdoor speakers was being repaired, so did not have that feature.

The pool was great. THE BACKYARD A DISASTER. There had been a windstorm the day before we arrived so of course the tree debris was expected; however the tables were filthy and not just from the storm - there were glass water rings and cigarette butts left on the table and on the ground around the dining table. While not wanting to wait until the next day for the cleaner, we swept the yard and cleaned the tables and chairs. Many of the outdoor chairs were broken and the chair pads and outdoor furniture were filthy. It seemed as thought they have never been covered. There wasn't any wood or matches for the outdoor fireplace and the outdoor kitchen was not clean. The grass in the yard had not been cut for quite a while. The cleaner did not ever make an appearance.

The location was perfect and although on a busy road, we did not hear any traffic while in the house or the yard.

This property could be fantastic if the yard was as shown in the pictures. New outdoor cushions, some new outdoor furniture and a good clean of the outdoor furniture is definitely required. I felt we could have found a better property for the price we paid.

Owner's Response: This house is spectacular! The furnishings inside and out are beautiful and plentiful. The pit group in the outdoor living area was just purchased in July. Unfortunately one of Phoenix’s famous windstorms wreaked havoc on the backyard the night before this guest’s arrival, and was followed by a few days of rain and more windstorms. The maid confirmed she’d set her water bottle on the outside glass table and it no doubt left a water ring that the dirt stuck to during the windstorm.

The Sherwood receiver is 10 months old. The remote malfunctioned and was being repaired under warranty. All three beds in the house have identical queen-size mattresses. The shower problem was not reported by this guest, but was reported by the next guest upon their arrival (which was today). It was repaired within 3 hours.

Pool service is weekly and lawn service is bi-weekly – typical for Phoenix. We do not provide firewood as part of the rental, but have the number for a service that delivers in the information binder located inside the house.

We strive to assure every guest has a positive experience in our vacation home. This home is very well equipped and outfitted, beyond what you'd expect!

great place and location

Had a great stay here, the back yard is really nice(to bad the weather was a bit on the chilly side) the house is spacious and well laid out, its on a busy street but the traffic was never a concern. Great location, house is in good condition, very fair value. Would rent here again.

Sadly Disappointing

  • 3 of 5
After reading the advert for this property our expectations were pretty high. The photos make you think you are renting a much more luxurious house than is the reality. Unfortunately there were a few issues that made our experience disappointing and frustrating. First the property which is in Phoenix, is on a main road with six lanes of traffic so car noise is constant. The outdoor area which is lovely, when well kept, was a mess when we arrived due to a recent storm and due to the fact that the gardeners hadn't been for a while. The grass was long, there were dead flowers in pots and there was sand and debris everywhere. We called the owner who did get the pool guy out to clean the pool the day after we arrived and the gardners out four days after we arrived. The cool outdoor kitchen was unfortunately dirty - the fridge hadn't been cleaned and the outdoor gas hob was filthy. The cleaner arrived three days into our visit to clean it up. By the time everything outside was as it should have been on our arrival we were more than half way through our stay. One other area that was disappointing was the bedrooms. They were very basic and looked better in the photos than they were in reality. Also there was no working surround sound and it hadn't been working for quite some time - according to the cleaner. However the kitchen is the best part of this house and is as advertised. The inside of the house was clean and very comfortable. This is a good rental property but needs to be advertised for what it is and needs to be ready when renters arrive as making calls to get it as it should have been detracted from our vacation.

Owner's Response: This is a fantastic home and very well appointed! The posted photos represent the house very accurately - It's beautiful! The location is awesome. It's in the heart of the action, yet private and relaxing. We absolutely love this place! We get great compliments from our guests too! Unfortunately the evening before this guest's arrival, one of Phoenix's famous storms hit, and apparently wreaked havoc on the backyard. Immediately upon notification, we dispatched service techs to clean up as quickly as possible. As always, they offered to help in any other way to make sure the guests were happy and comfortable.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We planned a golf outing in Scottsdale and stayed at the Camelback house and loved it. The house has a great location and great entertaining space. The back yard has plenty of room and a great pool. A/C worked great and it was HOT outside. John was a pleasure to work with and could not be happier with the stay.

Scottsdale is in the middle of the Sonoran Desert which boasts some

of the best golf in the country. On average, the desert portions of

the state have more than 330 days of sunshine per year. The air is

dry. Winter temperatures are mild (average high temperature January

to May is 75.5 degrees), and rainfall is sparse at just 7.74 inches

per year. These factors promote ideal playing conditions treating

players to fast, firm greens and lush rye grass fairways that hold

the ball perfectly. Therefore it should not be surprising

that the Valley of the Sun which surrounds Phoenix / Scottsdale

boasts more than 250 golf courses. Our home is at the center of

them all and just minutes to over 50 courses.


For those who believe that the fun doesn't have to stop when the sun

goes down, Phoenix/Scottsdale is an after-hours mecca that begs to

be explored. Discover the rhythm of cool jazz hideaways, the

sophistication of trendy cocktail lounges and the decadence of a

dark and cozy wine bar, not to mention the countless live bands and

DJs that spin dance, hip-hop, techno and other music varieties.

Within walking distance to some...a short drive to the

rest. Or better yet a cheap taxi ride.
