Ultimate Scottsdale Getaway!
About Julie Goren
Our family has owned this unit many years for vacation purposes, and now we're ready to let it be your destination for a Scottsdale retreat. It endeared us to the 'Valley of the Sun', and as a consequence, all seven (7) of us relocated to it from Chicago.

It has been fully remodeled, is in an unbelievable location, has all amenities a descerning renter would want...And More!!

Just right in every way
This property is very well maintained, thoughtfully remodeled, and an excellent location. I can't count the number of times the words 'oh wow, this place has such nice ' left our mouths. It's managed by the owner, and it shows. Not a single burned out light bulb, and no minor maintenance issues. The split floor plan is really perfect for sharing - 2 bedrooms on opposite sides of the condo (each with their own patio), 2 living rooms even! Both which are nicely appointed. We appreciated a nice soaking tub, as well as an excellent walk-in shower. Water pressure was not lacking, and we were there in the winter, and the hot water heater kept up with the tub. In the pictures the kitchen appeared small, but it was mighty! It was well-stocked and wonderfully efficient. There was a nice assortment of pots n' pans, plenty of dishes and glassware, and basic spices and cooking oil.
The location was just right. We found several great restaurants within walk distance even. It was minutes away from just about anything in Scottsdale you could want. We actually really liked the area of McCormick ranch nearby - it had a nice pilates studio, Starbucks, and a restaurant called The Vig. We also enjoyed going to the Chart House, which is just around the corner. That's just in case you don't want to go to the restaurant or lounge at the resort that shares the parking lot (which is quite nice). It's very appreciated to have a few options that don't require driving, no matter how short the drive. Would recommend, and would happily stay again!
Perfect in Every Way
For the last six years, our winter get-away from Buffalo has been Scottsdale. This year’s 9 day stay did not disappoint. The location of the condo was very convenient. Our host, Julie Goren, was most gracious and accommodating. The condo was spacious and well appointed. The grounds were spectacular, especially the lake. Being able to use the pool and facilities at the Millinium Hotel was an added plus. Access to the condo was simple unlike having to use codes to open a lock box, retrieve a key and then struggle to unlock the door. We especially liked the convenience of the location. This was a 4 star experience!
Pros and Cons - Feb-March 2019
Great floor plan.
Condo was stocked with everything you will probably need.
Could use a repainting.
Bedroom carpets could be cleaned.
Bedroom closets were filled with stuff like extra bedding, so you couldn't effectively use them.
Front door could be secured with a deadbolt lock to replace the chain door guard.
Window coverings in the dining room, living room and second bedroom do not provide for privacy - like being in a "fishbowl."
We so enjoyed our stay! The accommodations were just a nice as the pictures indicated! We will be happy to have them again in the future!
We lucked out and missed a big MN snowstorm while in Scottsdale. And we couldn't have been happier staying at this condo. It was very clean, quiet, had plenty of space for 5 people, had two outdoor patios, 2 covered parking spaces, and easy walking access to the pool at the adjacent Millennium hotel. The condo also had 4 large TVs, one each in the bedrooms and also in the separate den/living room areas. The kitchen was especially well stocked. The property was well landscaped and maintained, except for the tennis courts which are in need of repairs. Overall, this condo was a good value and is in very good shape. You can tell the owner takes pride in the property, and she also was very attentive during the booking and follow-up. We would definitely rent this condo again.
This condo is a gem
WE loved everything about it.
Great location, all the amenities one could possibly want, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds.
As far as we're concerned nothing was lacking.
