This home was fantastic for a brief vacation and would be even better for a longer term stay. Ours was an off-season august rental, in advance of moving our daughter into aSU. Its proximity to the Phoenix airport, Scottsdale, and Tempe make it an ideal location for shopping, dining and recreation. We were traveling with teenagers and would recommend the property for adults and/or families with teens or older children. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area with the waterfalls and slide – the photos don’t do it justice. The privacy and 360 degree mountain views are amazing. Inside, we were particularly impressed with how beautifully the home is decorated. The kitchen, with its Subzero and Viking appliances, pantry, and laundry room, plus the expansive Master suite, with its to-die-for closet, walk-in shower and private patio with spa, made us wish we were staying longer. The house was clean and well-appointed. Simple conveniences, like a large tub of pool towels, were not overlooked. Being off season, we encountered a few minor maintenance issues but the owner/property manager was both accessible and responsive. We look forward to returning, perhaps with the extended family, at a time of year when we can take advantage of the outdoor area, which includes a fireplace, grill, and seating for 18.
