A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for Thanksgiving 2015 and was the most comfortable place we have ever rented. The set up of the home is amazing, with picture window views of the pool and numerous hummingbird visits to the feeders. The inside is spectacular, having everything we needed and more. Getting to use the garage is definitely a plus! The property is very private and in a quiet neighborhood. We brought along our dog who enjoyed the sunshine in the backyard - it is totally fenced and was perfect for her. The owner was always very accommodating for questions or needs. We will definitely return to this beautiful home in McCormick Ranch -- thanks again Mike!!

Hummingbirds Galore!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I flew in from Boston and my sister and her boyfriend drove from San Diego for a family wedding in Scottsdale. My boyfriend and I arrived at 9:30 pm Friday night and Mike was there waiting to welcome us. My sister arrived early the next morning. After our long travel hours, we relaxed by the pool and watched the hummingbirds flutter above our heads. It was awesome!

The pictures on the website are beautiful. But in person, the home is jaw-dropping. I consider myself to be VERY neat and my boyfriend is a contractor. We inspected the home and could not stop commenting to each other about the beauty and cleanliness. The home was more than spaciousness enough for our group.

The experience was of total tranquility. When I am back in the area there will be one phone call I will make for my reservations (to Mike).

We found the rental to be in a great area with lots of local restaurants close by ,the house has very private grounds & a great pool which was very welcome in the summer sun .We would recommend this vacation rental to anyone wishing to visit Phoenix & we would definitely return for another stay in the future ,Chris & Jeni ,England

Great house; Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is on target in terms of comfort, convenience, value and four of us had plenty of room during our 4 day stay. The descriptions and photos of the house are accurate. Mike the owner has thought of everything you will need. The kitchen is fully stocked, more than enough towels and pool towels and refrigerator was stocked with cold water. The décor of the house is comfortable along with WiFi and Cable. The neighborhood is very quiet and all the houses in it were built in such a way that there is complete and total privacy in all of the yards. Its central location is easily accesible to North and South Scottsdale. There are many places to eat and shop within a 5 minute drive. Check in and out was very easy. It was fun to have grapefruit and lime trees in the yard. Our favorite part of the house was the covered patio by the pool with our daily visits from the hummingbirds!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We can only reiterate what most of the previous reviewers have said.. Mike was so easy to deal with, always available, but fully respected our privacy, although he lives nearby. The home was very clean, peace, quiet and and privacy excellent.. pool was a little chilly at first, but after a couple of days in the 100's, was fine. Kitchen was more than well-equipped - grill clean and ready-to-go.. we'll be back, and have recommended the property to a few friends! Thanks for everything, Mike..

Great Adult Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation home property...it was perfect for our family with 2 young adult children. The house though older is lovely with a wonderful southwest decor theme and beautiful local artwork. The large living room and dining room were perfect for entertaining our extended family in the area over the holiday season. Though Az was cooler this year than last the hot tub was great....and the yard shelter and sunny so comfortable for sun bathing even in low 70 degree weather. All linens, cookware, dishware were provided and some nice geatures like new toothbrushes, shampoo, laundry detergent, coffee available. We especially enjoyed the citrus trees with wonderful fresh grapefruit each morning. In all...a wonderful location in the desert...close to all Scottsdale ammentities...truly as advertised.
