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.

Comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was very comfortable for the two of us and has a great location in Scottsdale. Many places are walkable (library, old town, Fashion Square). For those activities further afield, there is easy access via major surface streets and expressways. We would not hesitate to stay in this unit again should we be in Scottsdale for a lengthy stay. The BBQ grill is a great bonus; we used it frequently.

Perfect South Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn's condo is the perfect vacation rental!

It's located very close to all the restaurants and nightlife of old town Scottsdale. One block Walking distance is a large supermarket, and a really nice French cafe called MERCI. (You can actually walk to Old Town - less than a mile for a nice walk!)

The condo itself is in a very quiet complex with well kept grounds and clean and sunny pool area. The interior of the condo is modern, with a terrific updated kitchen. The bedrooms, bathroom, sheets, towels all clean and perfect for a vacation rental. TV is a large flat screen with very comfortable seating in the living room. And - a washer and dryer! Carolyn is very attentive and answers all texts, calls and emails right away. There is a coded door lock for easy and safe entry into the condo. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Scottsdale! A++

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.
