About Carolyn Richards-Brown

Retired flight attendant for US Airways/America West. Lived in Phoenix for 3 years and presently in Western Colorado, but a native of southern Missouri, graduating from Missouri University.

Carolyn Richards-Brown purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carolyn Richards-Brown chose South Scottsdale

Old Town Scottsdale is magical with its many art galleries, great restaurants and walkability. The older section of Scottsdale has a lot of character and charm, having been built before all the large shopping centers and giant condo complexes existed. The fact that this complex is small and the unit one-story makes it particularly quiet with no one above. The location is perfect.

What makes this condo unique

Skylights bring natural lighting into the kitchen and bath, brightening the daytime with no need for electric lights, and I love the huge tree outside the front door. There is a large front window reaching almost from the ceiling to the floor letting a lot of light into the living area.

We loved our stay! The place is exactly like the photos and so close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn was a great host! The place is clean, convenient, and comfortable. The neighborhood is great! We walked to the park, the grocery, breakfast, shopping. The neighbors were all very friendly.

We had everything we needed including: basic spices, washer/dryer, fresh clean linens- even a muffin tin. There was plenty of room for our family. Our son loved having his own room and close access to the pool. The neighborhood children shared their pool toys.

We would absolutely stay again!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Had an amazing time at this property. No surprises upon arrival, Carolyn's description and pictures of her property were accurate. It was great working with the owner, upon my arrival she reached out to me to make sure everything was ok and she was always accessible whenever I had questions prior to and during my stay. The property was within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and public transportation. Close to Old Town and several Baseball Spring Training stadiums. This property is a great value and I look forward to returning.

Great Condo-Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed in this very comfortable condo for 1 month while visiting family in the area. It is very tastefully decorated and is supplied with all of the essentials needed for a short or extended stay. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was very accommodating and made our stay extremely pleasant. The condo is within walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants & tourist attractions. We felt very safe while exploring the area. I would definitely recommend this condo & would not hesitate to rent it again.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

Extremely convenient location for walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale, walking trails, grocery shopping, Spring Training games and Fashion Square/5th Avenue shopping. The 101 Loop Freeway access is two (2) miles away. The condo was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The newly remodeled kitchen counters, cabinets and appliances made cooking enjoyable.

The owner was very accommodating when I asked about a slow cooker appliance. She said there is not one in the condo but I will have one before you check in-- and there it was on the counter! We enjoyed and used often the Weber gas grill. Thanks, Carolyn for making our stay at your condo so very enjoyable. Also thanks for throwing in the fabulous weather for free. Knopiks from Montana

Great Location and Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona and were in need of a short term place. Our move was made much easier as this condo was fully stocked with everything we needed. Carolyn was great and made sure our stay was enjoyable. The location is in close proximity to Old Town were there is great shopping and restaurants; and also close to the Scottsdale Fashion Mall and Camelback Mountain. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to town.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Great landlord, nice and clean, wonderfully furnished and decorated, everything available and ready for use (towels, utensils, dishes..everything!). Washer and dryer in the unit, a real plus! Nice, quiet pool, but take a towel to sweep off the seats as there is a shedding tree near the pool area. The unit is bicycling distance to Camelback Mountain, an easy bicycle ride to Old Town Scottsdale (the center of Old Town). Walking distance to two grocery stores, many restaurants and around the corner from the shopping mall. Also very close to the bicycle/jogging trail that runs North and South through Scottsdale. Great location! Easy access to the Highway. Would highly recommend this property and would stay here again!
