Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We live in Cincinnati OH most of the year but visit our desert home whenever we can get away. My wife and I sold our business in 2006 and now are semi retired grandparents.
Why the Owner Chose Grayhawk: Our Grayhawk villa is located in a gated, golfing community with two pools that are no more than 100 yds from our doorstep. One pool is more secluded with lots of plants, trees, and shade, with the other larger pool ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Each pool has it's own spa and will provide you with hours of enjoyment.
We chose to invest in Scottsdale because of the fantastic winter weather that is available from October through April...a nice contrast to the Ohio winters that my wife and I have known for most of our lives. Living near Grayhawk Golf Course, the home course that Phil Michelson played on during his years at ASU provides us with the opportunity to play one of the most picturesque courses in the area.
Hiking in the McDowell Mountains is one of our favorite activites. Five minutes from our home, you can take a leisurely stroll or a challenging hike/climb all the time enjoying the unique desert flora and fauna. The Sonoran desert is home to many colorful flowering plants and different wildlife...
A day trip north will put you in the Grand Canyon, one of the modern day wonders of the world. The drive to the south rim is rewarding and the sudden view of the canyon is awesome. You don't see it coming...all of a sudden you are just there gazing up, down, left, right trying to take in the magnificence of the Canyon.
A favorite way that my wife and I like to begin the day is on our balcony facing the McDowel Mountains. Sitting on the balcony, with a good cup of coffee, watching the sunrise is a perfect way to begin your day. As you might guess, a great way to end the day is on that same balcony watching the big, western sky provide a colorful light show at sunset...this time with a glass of wine in hand.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Visits in the Spring of the year permit us to visit the Cincinnati Red's training camp and catch a couple of games. The Cactus league is growing every year!
The location of Scottsdale makes it no more than a half day trip to the mountains, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Tucson, and many more places that we have not yet discovered.
Midwesterners will find the desert plants and animals quite unique...from the Javelina, Bobcats, Coyote, etc., to the desert birds that are not found in the rest of the country.
Of course, Scottsdale is also known for its shopping, and the condo is less than 10 minutes from upscale shopping at Kierland and Scottsdale Quarter.
