Tadd Balfour purchased this House in 2000
Why Tadd Balfour chose Terravita
We chose to purchase our home at Terravita because we knew that when we both retired, we would want to spend a lot of time there during the year. We both truly love the Valley of the Sun, it's southwestern exposure sand the beauty of the Arizonan desert around the area.
What makes this House unique
Lots of time spent just plain enjoying the sunny, warm weather that the area is famous for while it's a deep freeze in our home state of Nebraska. All with endless places to shop and eat out. We love enjoying the beautiful desert landscape and the southwestern architecture. There are so many things to do so close by, you never run out of options.

lovely location, private setting, nice pool
Interesting home located in upscale, Gated, Golf Community. Home is located on a quite street with 'Dead End' turn around, so there is no 'through traffic' coming down the street by house. great front views, private in the back and Garage parking. The interior of the home is filled with art work and mix of everything South West. Pantry and kitchenware are all there, just bring your favorite coffee, fresh milk/cream, & your favorite vino or whatever. Three or four supermarket, etc., of shopping and some nice eateries are nearby. The home owner is very responsive and will reply immediately regarding any questions or concerns you may have. While we did have some needs to be addressed, it would be unfair to downgrade this location from 5 stars to 4. Our needs were addressed immediately (owner even shipped us new pots and pans!!) and except for the BBQ needing replacement, (which he has promised to do) there is not much more aside from a refresh of paint.
House was in a great location and gated community. The pool was perfect for our family!
The house had a great layout for our stay. Everyone had enough space. Our kids enjoyed the pool, and Tadd was wonderful about having it heated for us. The house is in a great location near places to eat, shop, and also not far from activities.
Tadd was helpful and very quick to respond to any of our questions. It was a great stay, and would recommend this home.
We loved our time in Phoenix and loved most things about the house. I would love to see the following changes:
-have the cleaning people do a more thorough job on cleaning the air vents, fans and kitchen.
-add a tv in the second bedroom.
-buy a complete set of pots and pans for cooking. What is there is kind of a mish mash of pans.
-buy a complete set of new dish towels.
-buy a new grill outside. The grill works but has a lot of hot spots.
When we rented the house, it said “two car garage”. One stall is occupied by a car the owner stores there. Thankfully we only brought one rental car instead of the original two we were going to bring.
Overall the home was very comfortable and we would rent it again. The changes would make it perfect.
Our stay was great, loved the house, the pool, the area
House, pool, location were awesome. We loved our stay. Would definitely come back. Thank you for being accomdating.
Beautiful southwest home in a convenient location.
Excellent stay. Very clean and homey feel. Great walking paths around the community. The owners were very responsive to questions we had. Very comfortable master suite bed. It was a little cool for swimming so we didn't get a chance to try out the small pool. Quiet neighborhood. Short drive to Carefree and Cave Creek for a unique local community with great boutique shops. It is close to shopping as well including a Safeway and Target. It is also a relatively short drive to Lake Bartlett for beautiful scenery. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Highly recommend this wonderful vacation home.
This a great property... Love the area and it is close to some neat places. Care Free, AZ is just down the road and has some very good restaurants. Shopping is close by but you still feel like your outside of the city. Would highly recommend this home if your looking to stay in Scottsdale.
