About the property

12 bedrooms, 20 Beds, 3 houses on private 1.5 acres in North Scottsdale

Make your visit to Arizona an experience you will never forget with your own private "western" resort. There are 3 custom built homes and 4 cowboy style bunkhouses located on a very private 1.5 acre lot in prestigious North Scottsdale surrounded by the best golf courses, shopping, and restaurants in the state. We are less than 10 minutes to some of the top golf courses such as, Troon North, TPC (Phoenix Open), The Boulders, Grayhawk and Wildfire, just to name a few, and we are only 35 minutes from the Airport. These homes are ideal for large groups, reunions, golf groups and corporate meetings. You can visit our Lazy K vacation property by Nicole Amodeo Facebook page to see even more pictures of it.

The 18 hole "Chipping Course" is a favorite of many of our guests. It has a wide variety of tee boxes and holes to test every skill level. It also has lights so you and your group can play late into the evenings.

(Main House) This unique custom built feng shui 5 br/3 bath (sleeps 10) home has 15 ft. ceilings, adobe brick walls, indoor fireplace, authentic "old west" furnishings, stained concrete floors, surround sound, and large TV’s throughout. Outside there is a large covered patio with two satellite TV's, Linx BBQ grill, bar, fireplace, 2 propane heaters, fire pit, and even a large rock fountain. The views are incredible, and the white lights in the lush landscaping make it look like your own private resort. It also has an eight-person hot tub for you to relax in, and the views from the tub are stunning.

We also have turned our three car garage into a Man Cave/Entertainment room with a 60' TV, 46 ' TV a Brunswick pool table, ping pong table, dart board and a X-box with Kinnect. The decor gives it a southwestern, cowboy, sports bar feel, and your more active guests will stay entertained for hours.

We also have two authentic Adobe brick guest homes on the property for larger groups. We conduct retreats on this property so there is plenty of beds/bedding to assure that your guests are comfortable. This home is great for entertaining because of the large gathering areas and yet very comfortable for your guests to have their own space. Each unit has a full kitchen, high speed wireless internet, washer/dryer, and access to the 8-person hot tub overlooking the beautiful palm trees, and saguaro cactus landscaping.

(Small Casita) There is a 1-bed/1 bath Casita (1200 sq. ft.) that sleeps 4. It has a large open floor plan with 20 foot ceilings, a Southwestern unique decor with rustic wood cabinets and doors and a 60 inch HD TV with surround sound. A California king pillow-top sleigh bed in the bedroom and a high quality queen size Murphy bed in the living room. It has a large covered patio with comfortable seating, BBQ, bar and fireplace,

(Large Casita) The larger Casita is 2-bed/1 bath (1800 sq. ft.), which sleeps 4-6. It has a large gourmet kitchen and large bedrooms, indoor fireplace, and large TV’s throughout. Outside is a 100 ft wrap around patio with couches, dining table, outdoor fireplace, propane heaters, and incredible sunset views.

You will feel like you stepped back into the old west when you partake in our newest creation of a 'Western Town' with four additional bunkhouses. All four bunkhouses have a queen size bed, heat, AC and custom western decor.

If the thought of staying in a cheaply-made, poorly decorated, small yard, on top of your neighbors, condo or sub-division home does not excite you, this is the property for you. This property is truly one of a kind and you'll even enjoy the landscaping which consists of hundreds of the plants, trees and cacti that make Arizona such a beautiful place to visit.

This is a beautiful upscale property in one of the nicest areas in the state and we only accept respectful tenants who behave accordingly. We do not allow weddings, bachelor parties, or rowdy groups.

You can't ask for a better setting for a large group (12 golfers) than Matt & Nicole's Lazy K.

We discovered this desert oasis 10 years ago and come back every year. They continue to add to what we thought was perfect!

Terrific location and great for friends and family to share memories!

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated the owners opening up their “desert oasis “ for close family and friends to share a special week of golf, eating and drinking. The chipping and putting area is magical.

Highly recommend this location and we will be back!!

It is nice to know that you truly enjoy this property and all that it has to offer.

Great time again!

  • 5 of 5

We've had a golf group the last 2 years and this place is perfect. We have a decent size crowd so it''s great to have a place like this where we can hang out, cook dinner, play chip & putt and then get away from the crowd for some down time. The owners are fantastic! And we look forward to many more stays! Highly recommended!

Super for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location for our family reunion with 4 generations of family. Plenty of room to spread out, or find some privacy. Grounds and houses are wonderful with lovely spaces outdoors and in. Plenty of entertainment for the younger set and comfy outdoor spaces for the older ones to sit and visit. Only slight reservation is that you will have to share bathrooms, particularly for the cabin rooms (no baths there).But the rest of the facilities more than make up for that, and for us it was absolutely perfect. Owners were super responsive and helpful with info on local restaurants for catering, etc. Many thanks for a great stay.

Owner's Response: That’s is awesome! So glad the space worked so well for your group. It is an ideal set up for large groups. You can be together and like you said “spread out” too so you have your own personal space. Hope to see you again in the future.

Way beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Matt and Nicole were super communicative and more helpful than I could have expected. I had my quarterly business review for my team and we will be back to do it again! The team building opportunity from a business retreat standpoint will no doubt help me drive my team to retire some very aggressive goals this year. Kudos all around. The property is a very large footprint, plenty of parking, and not oversold at all in the description. Have no fear what you see is what you get and then some! Thanks Matt

Owner's Response: You are very welcome, this property works so well for business gatherings. Why would anyone spend more money to stick their team in a boring hotel room with no personality, when you can experience the Southwest the way it should be. You can conduct your meetings here on site, play a round of golf on the chipping course, and then hang out in front of the fire on the back patio, or take on your co-workers in a game of pool or ping pong in the man-cave. Great team building is only a Costco trip away. We look forward to seeing you back next year,

Excellent stay at the Lazy K

  • 5 of 5

Our youngest son was getting married in Arizona and I needed to find a property that would accommodate his siblings and their families. There are 24 of us ranging in age from 2 to 69. I was so fortunate to find this great property. Nicole and Matt were so accommodating. Nicole was so quick to answer any questions that I had.

When we arrived, we couldn't believe how well the house and the casitas were decorated. The landscaping was so beautiful for being in the desert. The lighting at night was really amazing.

The property was so perfect for us. With the house having 5 bedrooms, and the 2 casitas, and the 4 bunk houses, everyone had their own space. Our 5 oldest grandchildren each had their own bunk house and they were thrilled. The 2 bedrooms in the large casita were so big. There was a king size bed and a twin bed in each, with a lot of room left to move around in. Plus the living area was large also. The small casita was so roomy. One family stayed there with their 4 children and felt they had plenty of room. The main house worked out so well with 2 bedrooms having their own bathroom. Of course the man cave was a hit with all. Everyone loved the pool table, and was the perfect place to watch the Vikings win their game.

Being we were all from Minnesota and a family from Kansas, we so enjoyed being outside the end of December. There were so many places to relax and enjoy being outside. Everyone took a turn with the golf clubs. I think the younger kids enjoyed them the most. We enjoyed building a fire in the outside fireplace in the evenings and visiting. The hot tub was also a great place to relax in in the cool evenings.

All 24 of us enjoyed our stay so much. I don't think any of us could have asked for a better place to stay. None of us wanted to leave. As a matter of fact my 6 year old granddaughter cried when she had to leave.

The wedding was beautiful (not on the property), and our stay at the Lazy K was just perfect, so I will say that everything tuned out to be fantastic. One of our sons thinks we should spend every other Christmas at the Lazy K. I think that would be a great idea! Thank you Nicole and Matt for everything.

Desert Ridge has several

Downtown Cave Creek and Carefree is just 7 minutes north of the property. There are many unique shops and restaurants in Cave Creek with a Cowboy feel and a Mexican twist. A truly unique experience that you will remember. North Scottsdale is just 10 minutes South of the property where you will find many upscale restaurants/ night clubs and shopping. If you are a golfer, this could be considered 'Heaven' with over 12 courses less then 10 minutes from the property. The Boulders, Troon North, Grayhawk, Wildfire, Desert Mountain and the TPC (Phoenix Open) to name just a few. You are less then a mile from the Tonto National Forest, where you can walk the trails or rent dirt bikes. Hundreds and hundreds of acres of beautiful Sonoran Desert views to take in. Sedona is an hour and fifteen minutes from the Property and is a wonderful day trip that will stay in your memory bank forever! One of a kind shops, unbelievable views and and an incredible golf course called 'Sedona Golf Resort' It must be one of the top places to visit on Earth, a must see and I imagine on many 'Bucket List's.' You are welcome to rent a Pontoon Boat and visit Lake Pleasant which is less then a half hour from the property and spend the day on the lake with views of the Desert. This is just a few options, the location of the property is ideal for privacy and yet so close to so many Arizona attractions. The back patio of the Main house is a favorite spot also!
