Why mike richter chose Santo Tomas Scottsdale V
WHEN WE BOUGHT THIS HOME WE DID IT WITH THE INTENTION OF STAYING THERE FROM TIME TO TIME AND SPENT THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS MAKING SURE IT WOULD BE A COMFORTABLE VACATION HOME FOR TRAVELERS AND PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO GET AWAY FROM THE HARSH WINTER MONTHS BACK HOME. THE SEVEN FOOT STUCCO WALL AROUND THESE HOMES GIVE THE GUESTS TOTAL PRIVACY DURING THEIR STAY. ENJOY RELAXING MOMENTS ON THE COVERED PATIO WITH YOUR MORNING COFFEE WHILE WATCHING THE HUMMINGBIRDS ENJOY THE 2 FEEDERS WITHIN FIVE FEET OF YOUR COMFY PATIO CHAIRS and TABLE
What makes this House unique

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION: BEING IN THE HEART OF SCOTTSDALE ALLOWS YOU TO ENJOY ALL OF ITS BENEFITS WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL MORE THAN 10 MINUTES. WATCH THE TERRITORIAL HUMMINGBIRDS "FIGHT" FOR POSITION ON THE TWO FEEDERS ON THE PATIO

Great location, great owner but house needs more than a little TLC. Very dated and not well maintained.
Nice home, very private feeling property
Spacious and great light throughout the house. Good location. Needs better lighting in and around the pool at night. Might think about upgrading to a "Streaming TV" option vs the basic cable provided. Otherwise, very comfortable and nice. Would return.
Convenient to everything and with all applliances and pool for enjoyable stay.
FANTASTIC PRIVATE HOME IN A GREAT LOCATION
THIS WELL CARED FOR HOME IN THE HEART OF SCOTTSDALE WAS TOTALLY PRIVATE AND MADE OUR VACATION ONE OF THE BEST EVER! THE OWNER WAS MORE THAN CORDIAL AND FULFILLED OUR EVERY NEED WITHOUT QUESTION AND QUICKLY. HE LIVES CLOSE BY AND WAS EVEN ABLE TO REPLACE THE CLOTHES DRYER WITHIN 2 HOURS OF OUR REQUEST WHEN IT SHOT CRAPS DURING OUR LAUNDRY NIGHT.
WE TOTALLY ENJOYED EVENINGS ON THE SHADED PATIO WATCHING THE HUMMINGBIRDS FIGHT FOR THEIR TERRITORY AROUND THE FEEDERS.
THE POOL AND HOT TUB WERE KEPT CLEAN AND USED FREQUENTLY.
THANKS MIKE FOR THE GREAT STAY, WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BACK FOR OUR NEXT SCOTTSDALE VISIT. CHEERS !
Love the privacy
This house is situated in a very nice neighborhood close to restaurants, shopping etc. It has a very safe feeling to it. I loved sitting by the pool and reading every afternoon and letting my dog run around the yard without having to worry about traffic. There was also a Keurig machine set up ready to go with the pods which made it really easy to have my morning coffee. Mike made it very easy to check in and out and we would stay there again if we go to Arizona.
Property suited for longer stays and families
Overall clean house with well equipped kitchen. Beds we're comfortable. We stayed here for almost 3 months. 1 remark pool is not heated so during winter not useable for most people...to cold.
