  • Home away from Home

    "Couldn't have asked for more. The pictures are great but don't do justice to all the things you find in this home. The owners are wonderful to work with and from the moment you walk in you can tell they have tried to think of everything. Our family was able to meet and have family dinners, swim and enjoy family time. The heated pool was perfect for early morning swims before the grandkids got up and just sitting and enjoying a hot cup of coffee and watching the quail in the first lights of morning. Entertainment was right there for a large group at the casino with family fun of bowling, arcade, lazer tag and the movies. The lay out of the house allowed for various visiting in small groups or family fun like charades. The kitchen was great for having the grandkids help make food like pancakes and tacos... the kids all love to help and must all have equal turns and the large kitchen gave everyone their own space to do just that. The outdoor grilling area was protected away from the traffic of small children if that would be a concern, the covered patio offers shade from the Arizona sun. The garage allows for secure and shaded parking and private loading and unloading of your belongings. The beds were extremely comfortable and the mastersuite was awesome! The a/c was cold when needed in the afternoon although very comfortable throughout the house because of all the ceiling fans. From couch blankets to extra towels and all the kitchen gadgets I think they had it all. I hate to go on and go about this place because I want it to be available for our next trip but really couldn't say enough good things about these owners or this home. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We hope we can come back again soon!"

  • Wonderful villa

    "Beautifully furnished villa in a peaceful gated community about 25 minutes north of Phoenix. Well maintained and very spacious unit with 3 full baths. The balconies provide great viewing of the surrounding mountains and desert - the rooftop patio was our favorite. Sitting out at night listening to the coyotes howling in the background was extremely enjoyable. And only a 2 hour drive to the Red Rocks of Sedona. Pool was only a short walk away and there's plenty of good restaurants in the Carefree/Cave Creek area. This is a gorgeous relaxing area just outside of Phoenix/Scottsdale. The owner was very easy to deal with and quick to respond to all emails. This place comes highly recommended."

  • Fantasy Island In The Desert (Not A Mirage)

    "Before our vacation was even over, the adults had already begun planning our next trip to what ended up being dubbed, "Fantasy Island". We were in Arizona for a 13 year old baseball tournament and 4 of the families on the team decided it would be fun to get a house vs. staying in hotels. The house and grounds exceeded the already high expectations. Nobody ever felt the desire to leave the property as the kids had a blast in the pool, hot tub, entertainment room and hiking the trails and hills in the open spaces. The adults all enjoyed their time on the patios, watching the kids play, sitting on the front deck and watching sunsets, cooking in the expansive kitchen and grilling out on the built in BBQ and hosting other families from the team as word of the "amazing house" began to spread through the players. I could go on and on about this property, but suffice to say we are planning to return in 2016 and would recommend this to anybody looking to have an amazing time in an amazing setting. Dan was great to work with and very attentive to any of our needs while in AZ. David"

  • Paradise Valley Guest House

    "My husband and I chose this guest house for location, affordability in the Scottsdale area, its charming pictures, and the pool. The guest house was charming, just like other reviews said. We appreciated little things that we have not had at other VRBO units--food staples, a variety of cooking spices and large towels. My only disappointment was the pool being so cold that I could not even dangle my feet in the water--my fault, I did not notice that it was not heated. We recommend staying here. Try to arrive in daylight because Paradise Valley doesn't have street lights, so it was difficult to find in the dark."

Phoenix Travel Tips

Whether you want to unplug and get in touch with nature on Camelback Mountain, take a swing on one of several postcard-worthy golf courses or see the best in contemporary thought at the Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix delivers a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors. All of the rumors you heard are true: This sophisticated city is a worthwhile addition to your travel short list.

Phoenix Attractions

Phoenix has a warm, dry climate year-round, which means that you can dust off those sandals, shorts and sunglasses during your stay. The area is absolutely ripe with outdoor restaurants,markets, nature preserves and other forms of entertainment such as shopping, art galleries and more. You can leave your coat at home when traveling to Phoenix, where an abundance of national and state parks provide hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing of the world-class variety. Of all the protected wilderness in the area, Lost Dutchman State Park is traditionally a favorite for adventurers of all kinds.

Located on the eastern edge of the Phoenix metropolitan area, Lost Dutchman State Park is one of the most beautiful showcases of the flora and fauna in the true treasure of the Sonoran Desert. Featuring incredible saguaro cactuses that can grow to be over eight feet tall, the park provides an incredible amount of photo opportunities before you've even made it to the visitor center. In addition to the beautiful views that you can experience from the comfort of the beaten path, the park also offers a variety of hiking trails and for those looking to escape more thoroughly into the wilderness.

What's most interesting about this park, though, is indisputably the legend of the Lost Dutchman's gold. Local lore abounds in this park as well with the Lost Dutchman's gold. The story holds that a gold mine was opened here in the mid nineteenth 19th century by a Dutch immigrant who then left no trace of its location.

Over the years, many have tried to uncover the mine, though none have succeeded. According to local Phoenix legend, the area most suspected to hold the gold is Weaver's Needle in the Eastern Superstition Mountains. While we doubt you'll actually want to go chasing treasure, it makes a great story to tell the kids during a hike!

Golfing in Phoenix

Perhaps no single attraction brings more people to Phoenix than the city's immaculate golf culture - so don't leave the golf bag at home. Endless sun and warmth has brought the city an incredible opportunity to develop a year-round golf season. As a result, Phoenix is now known as one of the best golf cities in America, boasting over 250 courses in the greater metro area. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, you'll be able to find instruction catered to your skills as well as some of the most beautiful backdrops in the world for your time on the links.

While it's a wonderful thing that there are literally hundreds of golf courses in the Phoenix area, it can make the decision of where to actually play a bit daunting. Luckily, Encanto Golf Course makes the decision a bit simpler by offering something for everyone. The course, located in downtown Phoenix on 15th Avenue, is designed with the average golfer in mind, though there's nothing average about the course. Encanto Golf Course is a part of Encanto Park, a beautiful public area which Forbes ranked as one of the top 12 city parks in America.

Encanto Golf Course is open every day from an hour before dawn until a half hour after dusk and features a beautiful and challenging eighteen hole course, a full service restaurant and stocked pro shop. Lessons are available for those looking to brush up on their game at any point. Golfers are encouraged to call in advance for a tee time, due to the popularity of the park.

Dining in Phoenix

Phoenix boasts a plethora of fantastic restaurants, making it a desirable location for foodies - especially if they are big fans of Southwestern flavors. El Chorro, however, always manages to stand out among the crowded culinary scene. The restaurant sits on 14 acres of beautiful desert skyline in Paradise Valley and is the perfect setting for a romantic meal with your significant other. The structure initially served as an all-girls school in the 1930s, was overhauled into a restaurant in the 50s, and it's historic roots are celebrated in the decor, which still holds the regal, minimalist air of a western schoolhouse.
