This 4 BR, 4 Bath home is ideal for a group planning a week of golf, baseball spring training fans and couples looking for a special getaway. The home is very kid-friendly, but really shines for adults who want to have a relaxing, resort-like experience in a quiet neighborhood. Those who do bring their children will appreciate Sonoran Park with its playground equipment, tennis and basketball courts.

                                The home was perfect for our golf vacation. Four guys in four bedrooms, although two did not have ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen was very well outfitted with everything we could need. We greatly enjoyed the spool. We are looking to book again for next year.

                                This get together with my friends was very pleasant in no small part due to your lovely home we stayed in. It was every bit the home you described and more. We loved the patio and spool, a bit of Heaven. Every day we spent time relaxing and reading. What a great way to commune. The water fall made it amazing. We had 4 couples in our 60's and we never felt cramped. We were able to put the twin beds together to make a queen that was more than adequate. There was plenty of quality linens and towels for more than 8 people. The kitchen was fully equipped and the supplies were more than expected to entertain beyond 8 people, a joy to work in. This home is beautifully decorated making it a pleasure to experience. The architecture design and landscape are just lovely and made the experience memorable. We are looking forward to making it our choice of our next gathering.

                                Our family enjoyed a wonderful week, entertaining friends and family in this well appointed property while in Scottsdale for the wedding of our son. The location was perfect, with services all around within a one mile radius, plus easy access to the expressways for our trips around the valley and up to Sedona. Not only was the weather super, but the owner was excellent to work with from the time of our first contact until our little vacation ended. We had a minor issue with the electronic locks but had a work around immediately upon calling the owner, a fix the same day. We would not hesitate to rent this beautiful property again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

                                We had a relaxing time at your wonderful home on our recent vacation to Scottsdale. Its convenient location made it easy to go anywhere. The home itself was amazing. If anyone needs to sit back and relax well the "spool" is the place to be! From hiking at Tom's Thumb, which is just a few miles away to the many choices of fantastic golf courses that are close by, coming back "home" after a busy day was quite enjoyable. Of course, our favorite place to eat was Soul Cafe. They have the best brunches! The owners were very easy to deal with and made sure everything was ready when we arrived. They were easy to get a hold of if we had any questions regarding the property or for making suggestions on places to eat. We will definately be back!

                                This was a very comfortable home. The owner was extremely responsive to all my queries and ready to work with any reasonable request. We suggested a slow cooker would be nice and he shortly wrote back that he had acquired one and we could use it. VRBO could make more hotel like amenities available to guests. This home could use a little organization in the kitchen. But I am being picky here, it was great all around.

                                Owner response: Thanks, Vijay! I'm glad that you had a great experience. You are right about the kitchen -- everything is there, but not always in a logical place. I will do some work to label drawers and so on so that my guests (and I) are consistent in how we store things.

                                We loved staying at this beautiful, comfortable home with our 4 children and would recommend it to anyone who wanted a comfortable and convenient place to stay while enjoying the Scottsdale area. The house was great, lots of space, everything you could want. If you like to cook, the kitchen and grill were super, but there are many good restaurants nearby if you prefer that. The back yard was absolutely gorgeous and the spool was really fun, even in the 50 to 60 degree weather. We loved the nearby trails and park as well as a short drive to Pinnacle Peak for hiking or Keirland Commons and the Fashion Square for great shopping. The owner was very helpful with the questions we had and did a great job of making sure everything was perfect.

                                Had a wonderful stay in Scottsdale at this luxury "retreat". It has an amazing master bedroom, with an enormous travertine tile bathroom (a walk in shower). The bedroom also has a fireplace, patio doors leading to the pool. One night we entertained friends, used everything -- the oven, the grill, the patio. the kitchen is very well stocked with quality cooking utensils and pans, very much like being in your own home. Some of us sat in the "bar area" and played cards. The bar area also has a wine fridge, which came in handy for the party. The house is very large, and we were comfortable entertaining a crowd of ten. They were impressed with our luxury "digs". Definitely recommend!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: I live in the Chicago area. I purchased the home so that my family, friends and myself could have a getaway. Once the flock leaves the nest, I would like to spend several months per year in beautiful Scottsdale.

                              Why the Owner Chose Grayhawk:
                              I looked for a property in Scottsdale for two years before I was able to find one that really appealed to me. I told my agent that the home had to 'feel resorty' and have the capacity for 8 people to stay comfortably. The house had to have an office/bedroom so that we could maintain a virtual presence at our jobs even while out of town enjoying our evenings as a vacation. A quiet neighborhood with friendly people would be a plus. Well, I got all of that! What a beautiful home. I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The house was designed by an architect for his own use so a lot ot thought went into the wonderful layout, both inside and outside. Mountain views from the second floor are complemented by desert views from the first. The master suite has a fireplace, walk-in closet and walk-in shower for two. A second bedroom also has an in-suite bathroom. In addition, there is a full bath adjacent to the remaining two bedrooms on the second floor and there's a full bath with shower on the first floor for those who are getting in and out of the pool. The yard and patio is compact but has 5 'rooms' for your enjoyment -- the dining area, the fire pit, the lounge area, the pool area and the citrus orchard. Because there is also a second floor patio, there are cool places to sit outside no matter what time of day. While the outside resort makes this a great home for entertainment, the inside 'bar', right across from the office, makes it easy to transition from work to play. You'll enjoy having your whole group get into the heated spa/pool together, comfortably seated while a water fall cascades with a soothing current of cool or warm water.
