Great location great owner
We enjoyed this spacious house. The Southwest decor is lovely. Loved sitting on The patio. There was plenty of lights at night. Close to restaurants for Happy Hour. Close to Sprouts our favorite market. A few glitches with hot tub not working when we got there but fixed as soon as possible. A toilet broke fixed very quickly. We had to shorten our visit due to Covid 19 but Mike gave us 3 weeks the next time we go to Scottsdale.
THANKS FOR THAT CAROL
I ENJOYED YOU AND MIKE DURING YOUR STAY AND WILL LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR COMING BACK TO SCOTTSDALE. YOUR PATIENCE DURING OUR REPAIRS WAS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED AND I PLANNED ON TAKING YOU BOTH OUT TO DINNER UNTIL YOU SHORTENED YOUR STAY. I HOPE THE 3 WEEKS OF FREE VACATION TIME MORE THAN MAKES UP FOR THE 2 WEEKS YOU GAVE UP.
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN, MIKE RICHTER
Nice quiet place with a lot of privacy and a really nice neighborhood with friendly people. Nicely located in Scottsdale with easy access to the freeways which made everything very easy to reach.
Great location, great owner but house needs more than a little TLC. Very dated and not well maintained.
To say that the home is "not well maintained" is NONSENSE ! I make sure EVERYTHING is in good working order. Parts of the home may be a little dated (countertops) but certainly NOT THE DECOR. Sorry you felt that way.... we had always maintained a 4.9 star rating for 18yrs ! Please reconsider your rating of us. Thanks
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 !
