Stayed 3 weeks wonderful apartment casita on Susan's property. Great accommodations and wonderful location. Close to great hiking and scottsdale activities. Wifi and cable great John and Susan are like friends instead of landlords. Great for the active couple that likes to golf hike or bike. Wonderful experience

Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this beautiful home was exactly as described. The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable, with its own private entrance. Susan and John were extremely welcoming and friendly - as was Buddey, their adorable little pug! We were invited to make full use of the patio and pool area. They even joined us there for a glass of wine one evening. Only a mile away from some fabulous hiking trails, this comes highly recommended.

Arizona Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We had great weather and we finally after 5+ yrs. were able to get our hot air balloon ride in. The homeowners, John and Susan were great. They gave us tips on where to eat and places to see.

review of home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property. It was private with its own entrance and very bright and well lit. The owners were very accommodating, they had equipped the home with most of things that we may have needed, including garbage bags, dish washing liquid, soap and plenty of linen. They allowed us to us the washer and dryer in their home and made us feel very welcome. They even invited us to share their Christmas dinner along with the family. There was a hot tub and they said we were free to use it. There was a pool table in the large living area and a fully equipped kitchen.

The home was clean and well maintained and it was not too far from the main downtown of Fashion Square. There were trails close by, it was quiet in a cul de sac.

There were no extra cleaning fees.

The family were very helpful when we needed tips on what to see and do in the vicinity.

I would recommend this to anybody who is there for an extended stay upto 4 people.

"You can't get this @ a Hotel"

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful home with a great patio/pool area to relax in this is it. Very friendly owners that make you feel at home. The apartment is quiet and comfortably furnished. Just 5 minutes to great hiking in the hills!We had a great time. Glad we chose this instead of a hotel. Harry & Laura
