About the property

We think our location, our small complex, plus our amenities will suit your needs perfectly. Reserve now! If you plan to visit 'The Valley of the Sun' we have a comfortable condo available just for you. Look no further and book your stay now. Our guests are satisfied customers.

We are looking for visitors who book at least 10 days preferably from Now on. Two week stays will get $50 deducted from the rate- just remember to include 50 off code in your inquiry.

The finer points: 1) A GREAT LOCATION if you want to visit, or for shopping, art galleries, restaurants, casinos, golf course, Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, Arizona State University, Phoenix Sky Harbor airport and several spring training sites... all just a few minutes away!

2) Renovated and remodeled condo. Brand new carpets July, 2014!

3) On the second (top) floor has 'vacation getaway' as its motivation.

4)The southwestern inspired decor reminds you that this is a beautiful and distinct part of the country.

5)The condo was designed for functionality and priced for value oriented travelers while maintaining a comfort rating of 'superior'.

Bedroom one contains a queen bed. Bedroom two has a full size bed and connects to the balcony.

Inside the unit you will find ceiling fans in all the rooms or A/C when the weather dictates. Extra linens are provided so you can always choose to cool off in the pool which is just around the corner. A chill in the air? Start a cozy fire in the fireplace. Watch a movie on the new flat screen TV or in the comfort of your bedroom. Then go and unwind in the hot tub before bed or in the morning with your favorite beverage.

Opportunities to escape, unwind and enjoy the quiet serenity of your vacation abound at this intimate complex. Four Golf courses are less than 2 miles away! If exploring the greater Phoenix area is a part of your visit, then you can find it just minutes away.

The complex is conveniently located to Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, Old Town, all the ART GALLERIES, Casino Arizona and Talking Stick, Scottsdale Stadium, Phoenix Stadium, Arizona State University, Tempe Town Lake, Desert Botanical Gardens, Heard Museum, professional sports complexes, Camelback Mountain and several downtown areas. The Phoenix airport is less than 20 minutes away.

IT IS CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! Many of these attractions are only 1/2 to 3 miles away! Two blocks away you will find a grocery store, Starbuck's, eateries, sports bars, banks, and restaurants. Don't forget to go tubing on the Salt River (head east to Mesa on the 202, exit at Power Road and go left!)

Please check the calendar as I keep it up-to-date when every new bookings is made. I get several inquiries on various dates. Keep in mind that it is available until someone confirms their stay with the required deposit and contract. If you have a price - let us know where you got it and we may be able to offer you a better deal! We always like to try! VRBO has added a service fee now which I have no control over so that is added on to the cost of the rental - FYI

About G.Wayne

I'm an elementary teacher who desired a getaway place of my own after hectic weeks and months of deadlines and budget crunches. Please enjoy your escape here just as I do.

G.Wayne purchased this condo in 2008

Why G.Wayne chose South Scottsdale

Scottsdale is the best location in the Valley to get around and enjoy the sights of the greater Phoenix area. Our property is shady and cool just when you need it.

What makes this condo unique

Your neighbors are quiet and respect your right to privacy. They will also help you with any questions you may have.

Convenient to downtown area but not really walkable.

  • 2 of 5

Apt was adequate but had a quirky smell that lingered on my clothes for a week after we left. Apt is dark inside....better lighting would help a lot and there is no "view " to speak of. Steps to contend with to get to apt so if you're carrying things, be prepared. Mostly quiet. Not even a bar of soap so bring everything. We didn't feel

Incredibly safe there.

Owner's Response: We supply everything but personal necessities as many people have allergies to soaps and lotions. We do use fabreeze which may be the smell you think is quirky. The unit is mentioned as a 2nd floor unit and not an elevator available. I think reading is important for being prepared at a location you are not familiar with. We try to be thorough in our listing.

Condo smells like mould, manager kept our damage deposit

  • 1 of 5

The property was extremely sub par. We chose it because it seemed to be a good value. My wife is fairly sensitive to smoke and mould smells and she complained of an itchy throat for the first couple nights of our stay. You can certainly tell that there is by the smell when you walk in. The master bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable and almost un-sleepable for us. The view from the suite is the parking lot of a storage locker. The parking was a bit of a walk, but appeared fairly secure as long as you're not put off by the random derelict vehicles that seem to have been abandoned there. On the plus side there's a great selection of VHS movies for the TV from 1992, and some equally old romance books for your pleasure.

All of this was tolerable because the price was good and we spent most of the day out doing things. When we left the manager kept 75% of our damage deposit. He claimed the following things:

1. We overloaded the dishwasher. The dishwasher was crap and couldn't get any amount of plates clean.

2. Our baby had an accident in the bed and required extra cleaning and the mattress pad replaced. We brought a crib our baby was in diapers. No one slept in that bed.

3. There was makeup on the towels. Towels have to be washed regardless if there is makeup on them.

4. We hung blankets on the bedroom windows to darken the room - apparently this is against the rules and we were charged for it.

5. There was some type of food mess on the couch. Fair enough, but thats what the cleaning fee is supposed to cover.

6. My wife replaced a pillowcase because she brought her own and apparently lost the one there. What's a pillowcase from 1985 worth? $10 max?

I appealed this to the manager and asked him to provide photos of the "stains" but didn't receive anything back. I ended up getting a few dollars back but they still kept over half for nothing! We swept the floors and made sure all the dishes we clean. It was borderline cleaner when we left than when we showed up.

My opinion is that the property manager and cleaner make extra by keeping damage deposits. Buyer beware!

Owner's Response: It is obvious this renter was not refunded do to items he refuses to acknowledge. As other renters have stated - this unit was very clean and satisfied us in every way. (The dishwasher was overfilled and many items could not be cleaned due to this, but nevertheless he got refunded this amount back because yes, sometimes washers may actually miss a cycle or something and therefore cannot be ruled out.) The unrefunded amount was due to this renter not following the protocol for departure and DAMAGE to the unit. One final tidbit on these points - the covers were pulled over the baby mishap so that others would not see it. Maybe this renter was the one who was not informed or aware because of this. So for the second time in eight years of renting I had to keep part of a renter's deposit.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable 3 weeks at this condo. It is very nicely decorated in Southwest theme, the bed was very comfortable and location was perfect. Free Trolley stops right outside the complex. Close to Old Town Scottsdale, the great bike path and getting on the 101. Enjoyed fresh fruit from the trees right on the property. We hope to be back again.

Beautiful and well kept , 100% privacy

  • 5 of 5

Well over my expectations , was well stocked and well kept with the thought of the renter . Any question when I was first there was answered immediately ! This was a hidden gem in a great location . Use of the pool , hot tub and bar-b-q was a great bonus . The neighbors and other residents were helpful and friendly . I would love to say that it was horriable so I could keep this gen to myself but if you are going to tScottsdale AZ area and can stay here this is your home away from home . I will be returning and staying again very soon .

Comfortable condo with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo is really very nice and very updated. We were completely comfortable and the people we talked to who lived in the complex were all very friendly. We used the gas grills down by the pool several different times. Would definitely go back again.
