Property description

The Quail House is the perfect central location to enjoy the best of both the North Scottsdale area, as well as its convenience to popular neighboring communities such as SEDONA, OAK CREEK CANYON, FLAGSTAFF, TOMBSTONE, PRESCOTT, and even the beauty of the GRAND CANYON.
WELCOME TO 'THE QUAIL HOUSE' WHERE YOU WILL HAVE PROPERTY OWNERS WHO CARE! WE CARE ABOUT YOUR NEEDS AND WE CARE ABOUT OUR HOME. This lovely townhome with a resort-like, private backyard is for the discriminating traveler who is looking for luxury accommodations, and superior hospitality. Please click on our CALENDER to check availability (always up-to-date) and rates. Our rates include rental tax and the only other fees are a cleaning fee and a nominal charge for a damage insurance policy.

Elegant and luxurious details make this home a truly special vacation destination in an exceptionally quiet location. With absolutely NO traffic noise, the sounds of nature is all you will hear. Upgrades galore allow for the ultimate getaway, while still being comfortable enough to kick off your shoes and enjoy the indulgence! This is an end-unit townhome, single level, with access just like a typical home. No stairs to climb, no one above you, and no one below you, for true privacy. The layout is a split bedroom floor plan with the master bedroom on one side of the house, and the other two bedrooms on the other side of the house. This is great for couples traveling together, or families who need a little breathing room.

For a romantic evening, or simply a relaxing environment, adjust the triple spots of mood lighting, curl up on the comfy sofas or the buttery-soft leather recliner. On cool days, the flick of a switch turns on the gas fireplace and completes the ambiance. Watch your favorite shows in HD Surround Sound on the 50' Mitsubishi widescreen TV. You will have over a hundred channels, providing a vast diversity of entertainment and music, and a DVD, CD, and book library with a variety that should have something for everyone. If you have a special request for select cable channels, we can turn on these channels for you for a nominal fee for your stay.

In addition to the TV you will have a progressive scan DVD Player and a six disc CD player. A DVR is also provided so you won’t have to choose between enjoying our many delightful restaurants and shops, or staying home to catch your favorite TV show or “the big game,” (sometimes a marriage saver!)

The master bedroom is the home's sanctuary. The king-size bed has a Tempurpedic mattress and an additional high quality 2' lighter density foam topper. Combine this with the Grand Patrician luxury sheets, the cozy quilt and silky comforter, and you will find, as one guest commented, that you won't want to get out of bed in the mornings!

Another wonderful feature of this calming, restful retreat is the gorgeous view of the backyard and natural wash. The designer window treatments include the most exquisite contemporary lace sheers AND full black-out drapes. Whether you want to sleep in late, or take a seriously restful nap, this feature is one you won't find anywhere else. These lovely draperies cover an 8' tall Arcadia door/window. Pull open the drapes in the morning, have breakfast in bed with the provided bed trays, and enjoy the view of the tropical landscaping, the birds, the Quail families, the adorable prairie dogs swinging in the trees, and the feeling of complete solitude provided by the Natural Area Open Space (NAOS - city protected natural land) that is directly behind our back view fence.

The master bedroom has beautiful old-world furniture that includes a lovely TV armoire. Open the fold-back hinged doors to reveal a Sony 34' television with a DVD player. Each nightstand will have a Godiva mint chocolate waiting for you, as well as practical touches such as tissue boxes and a television guide. There is an IHome clock/radio with an iPod docking station in this room, but at your request it can be placed in either of the other two bedrooms in the home.

The adjoining en suite bathroom has two large separated his and her vanities, (ahhh... the luxury of your own private space in which to get ready every morning!) a shower with a hand-held shower head, a separate garden tub with large, hand-blown glass tea candle holders to help inspire the romance of this gorgeous retreat, a separate water closet, and a custom walk-in closet that will literally take your breathe away. Filled with a variety of more wooden hangers than anyone could possibly need, another chest of drawers, built-in laundry baskets, and separate shoe shelves... it is truly the dream closet. For our extended-stay guests, you will love it!

Lastly, the bathroom comes with a deluxe, multi-switch hair dryer, a swing-away wall-mounted mirror at the lady's vanity (or gents for shaving) with magnification on one side, tissues, q-tips, cotton balls, and our collection of natural shower gels, bath products, sunscreen, loofah, poofs in the shower and bath salts at the tub! The icing on the cake is the dimmer switches on all of the recessed lighting, so light the candles, listen to your favorite relaxing music through our room-by-room individually controlled speaker system, and let your cares, aches, or any other tension melt away. (Just don't fall asleep in the tub!)

The lovely and quiet second bedroom has an equally high quality queen bed with a pillow-top mattress, luxury linens, and a cashmere blanket. It boasts a 26' flat screen digital TV with a built-in DVD player. You will find the same hotel-like amenities in here, such as tissues by the bed, a slew of shirt and skirt hangers (many more than most hotels provide,) magazines on the dresser, a chrome folding luggage rack, and of course, if occupied, a mint chocolate by the pillow!

The more contemporary third bedroom has two basic X-LONG twin beds, a new 26' flat screen TV (no DVD), and a computer desk with a wireless printer/fax/scanner/copier to go with your free lightening fast wireless broadband internet service. The up-to-date 2.4 GHz router has extended range. Print from anywhere in the house (Apple users will need to have a USB to Apple port adapter to set up connection and an app for printing on non-AirPrint compatible printers. This is an HP4500 series printer and is not automatically AirPrint compatible.)

Start your morning in the dramatic kitchen by selecting a perfect starter from our complimentary selection of herbal, rooiboos, green, and black teas, or brew a cup of caffeinated Godiva, Kona, Hazelnut, or French Vanilla decaf coffee. Enjoy your breakfast indoors at the kitchen table surrounded by windows and another eight foot Arcadia door with views of our tropical patioscape with flagstone paving. Or, grab a croissant and dine al fresco on the patio while listening to the songs of the native birds, including the enchanting calls of the Quail families in the wash behind the back wall view fence.

In the kitchen, every cooking utensil has been provided, and for the adventurous gourmet, try a new recipe from the Williams & Sonoma cook book library. All top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances makes for a great place to prepare a meal, and the generous island provides a pleasant place for your family members or friends to gather and enjoy conversation and a glass of wine. For your convenience, a small but diverse selection of wines is provided when you arrive. If you forgot to pick up some wine at the grocery store, grab a bottle in “honor bar” fashion. The prices of each bottle are listed on the card at the wine rack, and we do not mark them up. Prices are our cost, purchased from Cost Plus World Market, and whatever you use will be charged to your credit card after check out with no surprises.

For the child in all of us enjoy an evening of fun playing a board or card game from our extensive selection, holler out loud at the latest Scene-It DVD games, or have a raucous time singing with the tunes on the deluxe dual-microphone Karaoke machine! For more peaceful moments a yoga mat is provided.

Boasting one of the two largest lots in the complex, the backyard has been professionally landscaped with two expansive patio areas. Enjoy the sounds of nature while flipping some hamburgers on the gas BBQ. Backing to the NAOS, this special home is notable for the everyday cooing sounds from our entertaining Quail. As a bonus you will regularly see the playful little prairie dogs swinging from tree to tree in the dense trees behind the house, and lots of cottontail bunnies hopping around the complex. Enjoy a multitude of birds in the NAOS as well, and the most splendid treat is the occasional visit from a spectacular red Cardinal gracing the backyard tree.

On one of our many beautiful evenings, take your beverages outside, step down to the lower patio, and relax in one of the swivel rockers in front of the gas firepit. Earlier in the day grab a chaise lounge and free your inner sun goddess, or pull out a putter and work on your short game by brushing up on the four-hole professional putting green. Installed by the same company that installed putting greens for many of our local PGA pros, it has many complex undulating slopes, and it will test your skill! This is no 'kiddie' putting green! Putters are provided.

As the afternoon wanes, the unobstructed views of our breathtaking Arizona sunsets, are truly calendar material every evening. After the sun has set, Scottsdale's Dark Sky Ordinance allows you to enjoy the brilliant stars each night.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a 'young' middle-aged couple who enjoy movies, geocaching, golf, and good friends. We don't have children, but we have a wonderful, goofy, lovable black Miniature Schnauzer who is like our 'kid,' so we can empathize with people who want to travel with their well-behaved, low-dander/no shedding dogs. We are non-smokers, and are very fastidious. We have taken care of our home to the point that it still looks almost brand new. Marc was in real estate for 30 years, and about 15 of those years he owned a residential Property Management Business. We worked together in this, so we both have extensive experience in the business of renting property, taking care of renters, and the properties themselves. Joanna is a designer, and enjoyed using her talents to make this home very special. We are the original owners, and when we had it built, she became infamous with the sales team, driving them crazy requesting so many custom changes to the basic home. It became known as their 'custom home' in a neighborhood that is not custom! As discriminating travelers ourselves, we appreciate hospitality that goes above and beyond, and our desire is to extend this same gesture to anyone staying in our home. We love to add the little special touches that give travelers a really wonderful place to stay while on vacation, and appreciate how much it can make all the difference in their travel experience. Yes, we have high expectations when we travel, but we pass that same level of attention on to our guests. Right down to the Godiva chocolate on your pillow!

Why the Owner Chose Grayhawk:
This was our home for 10 years, and we absolutely loved it there! We are the original owners, we kept it looking like a brand new home while we lived there, and it still looks like a brand new home. Because we needed to move to a more pedestrian part of town (Old Town Scottsdale) for Joanna's health, we decided to offer this home for rent. We are both lifetime residents of the Phoenix area, and when we saw the incredible boom of development that began in the North Scottsdale area, we knew it was an area that we would truly enjoy. With the large scale shopping centers, upscale movie theaters, and loads of unique dining experiences, it's in the heart of anything your heart desires. Combine this with the gorgeous McDowell Mountains and other nearby desert parks, carefully controlled care of the neighborhood natural landscaping, and restrictions for the use of only indigenous plant material in the area, and this area feels as though we are living in a resort every day of the year. There is also a City 'Dark Sky' ordinance in this area, which limits the street lighting. This is designed to enhance the ability to enjoy the stars and beautiful night skies on our many clear nights. Finally, with the easy care of a spectacular community center and top-notch fitness center, this area was truly a perfect fit for our lifestyle. It allowed us, and will allow you, to feel as though you are living away from the 'rat race,' yet still be only minutes from everything! As for this particular home, it was also a perfect fit for us, as we did not want a large home and yard to maintain, but were lucky enough to get one of the two largest lots in the complex. The floor plan and amenities were perfect for us, and we were also allowed to customize our home with many personal touches to make it our own, and feed our aesthetic spirits. 13 years later, we wouldn't change a thing about anything in our home or neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Quail House is only five minutes from the Loop 101, which makes it easy to hop on the freeway and be almost anywhere in 10 to 15 minutes. Even downtown Phoenix, or the Southeast Valley is an easy 30 minute drive. It is five minutes to WestWorld, home of the Barrett-Jackson car auction, 10 minutes to the TPC course (home of the Phoenix Open,) 15 minutes to the state-of-the-art Diamondbacks spring training facility, and 15 minutes to the Mayo Clinic Hospital/Specialty Clinic. The North Scottsdale area is a destination for world-class golf. Within 5 to 15 minutes of our home are literally dozens of fabulous courses ranging from the most extravagent with exclusive services, to the very affordable. All are challenging and stunning in their beauty. Likewise, we have three of the most beautiful spas in the Valley within 10 minutes of our home. Each has its' own unique atmosphere, and offers one-of-a-kind treatments that are not offered in other places in the world. They offer the ultimate in pampering and indulgence. In addition we have the best location in our complex! Our little hamlet is so quiet, and the other residents are so respectful of our privacy. It is as if we are the only ones living in our neck of the woods! We love movies, and one of our favorite destinations, which is only a few minutes away, is the Harkin's Cine' Capri theater that has a 30' x 70' screen with over 600 seats, unbelievable digital sound, and great concessions! The beauty of the desert area is literally in our own backyard with the beautiful wash right behind it with a view fence. We love to watch the Quail, the prairie dogs swinging in the trees, and the special birds that visit us. It is a truly special location! And, in addition to location, it is a rare vacation rental, as it is not furnished with 'disposable' furnishings. Everything, from the kitchen utensils to the mattresses/bedding and electronics are top-of-the-line. We offer services and amenities you won't find anywhere else!
