About Adele Keaton
We enjoy visiting our vacation home in sunny Scottsdale. It is a wonderful respite from the cold northern winters.
Adele Keaton purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Adele Keaton chose Paradise Valley
We chose this area of northern Scottsdale because of the safe, upscale neighborhood. We love the shopping and restaurants in this section of Scottsdale.
What makes this Condo unique
This is a very lush condo complex in a great area. The pool is beautiful by day, and even more gorgeous at night. There is a nice workout room and access to the bike/hike trail. We've thought of everything to make your stay at our condo as comfortable as can be. We wish we could be here all the time. Since we can't be, you can enjoy our special place while we are away!

We decided to use VRBO for the very first time as we made plans to spend January in Scottsdale, AZ. We went online and, being non-smokers, found this unit in Bella Terra that was listed as non-smoking.
Upon our arrival the first thing that hit us as we entered the unit was that it did indeed have a strong stale smoke smell. We discussed what to do and obviously we couldn't just go rent a different unit at the last minute. We were stuck. We considered contacting the owner immediately to complain and request a discount. This being our first time we didn't really want to rock the boat so we decided to just make the best of it and notify the owner of the problem close to our departure. She certainly shouldn't continue listing it as a non-smoking unit in its current condition.
The smoke smell was strong enough that we were concerned about it settling into our clothing so we put everything of concern in the walk-in closet and kept the door shut. During the day we would leave the bedroom window and sliding door open with the ceiling fan on to try to air the place out. As you can imagine this was a pain in the neck to have to do every day and seriously impacted our ability to have a "relaxing" stay.
As planned, we notified Adele, the owner, a couple of days before our departure. She was very appreciative and apologized for the situation.
What we didn't tell Adele at the time was that the carpet was really dirty and in need of cleaning and that the vacuum cleaner brush didn't work properly. We didn't tell her about the dirty glasses in the cupboard and dishwasher or about the scum at the bottom of shower curtain liner. And we didn't say anything about the overall musty unclean smell of the unit in addition to the smoke smell.
A couple of days after we left, after she had her housekeeper go through the unit, she emailed us that the housekeeper swore there had never been smoke smell in unit before and therefore "we" must be the culprits, the ones who sought to rent a non-smoking unit. Interesting. This housekeeper found it way more convenient to blame us than to admit to Adele that she wasn't doing her job.
Based on the word of this housekeeper Adele has withheld our damage deposit. We have filed a complaint with VRBO and with our credit card company to retrieve our deposit.
We'll post later as to whether she returns some clothing as promised we accidentally left in a drawer.
This was the first time I have had to keep a deposit from a renter. My listing and the rental agreement both state that this is a no smoking property. The carpet, upholstery, and bedding had to be cleaned in order to restore my condo to its former condition. I pride myself on providing the perfect environment for each of my guests. In the future, please make sure to check that the unit you rent allows smoking. This will make the experience more enjoyable for you, the host, and all future guests.
Great Scottsdale location
Very clean and nice condo with all the amenities and then some. Easy access to the 51 and loop 101. Plenty of restaurants and activities located close by. the owner of the property is so helpful and easy to communicate with via text or email and she provided very helpful information upon check in. I appreciated the attention to detail. Location is the best and the property is nice.
Hello Kimberly - I am happy that you were comfortable at Bella Terra while waiting to move into your new home. Thank you for being such a wonderful guest. -Adele
Great Stay at Bella Terra!
Adele and Chris are absolutely wonderful people to deal with, and exceptional at responding to any inquiries.
Their place is exactly as advertised, a modern and really comfortable 1-bdrm, fully stocked with everything you need to make your stay the perfect vacation retreat. It is extremely well located with access to all major food stores a couple of blocks away (Frys, Albertsons, Whole Foods, Trader Joes), plenty of great shopping and restaurants nearby, and the unit has great access to all the hiking trails, North Scottsdale, and Old Town Scottsdale.
I spent all of January at their unit, and can't wait to get back there again next year. My wife was able to stay for most of the month, and we got to see many of the events and attractions that I had not seen on previous trips to Phoenix (art galleries, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), Phoenix Zoo, Barrett Jackson, Tucson, etc. When we came back from our daily adventures, we met some really nice folks around the pool and hot tub. Of course, when my wife was not there, I alternated between going golfing one day, and hiking the next. Living the dream! It doesn't get better than that!
We miss Scottsdale and the Bella Terra condo
My husband and I stayed at this one bedroom condo in Scottsdale for the month of January. We have many positive comments about the condo, starting with the kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked and enabled us to prepare many meals while we stayed there. The dishwasher came in handy and having a fridge with water and ice on the outside of the door was a convenience . The kitchen was very clean and bigger than we expected.
Although this is only a one bedroom condo, it was spacious enough for my husband and I not to feel cramped at all. The small balcony was nice to sit out on in the morning. The queen bed was very comfortable and having a walk-in closet gave us plenty of room for clothes , also the bedroom had a large dresser which also gave us plenty of storage. It was also convenient to have a washer and dryer in the condo.
Although this condo has shared walls, it was fairly quiet most of the time and we really appreciated that. The pool is beautiful and reminded us of resort pools with palm trees, a small water feature, and other landscaping. The weather in January was a little cold for us to go in the water, but we spent time sitting in lounge chairs around the pool just relaxing. Having a small workout room was a added feature, and we did use it.
The location was good and it was nice to be close enough to go to Fry's grocery store (which is fantastic) as well as many other smaller stores and restaurants. We weren't far from a lot of shopping, a lot of hiking and other Scottsdale activities.
The only negatives we could think of perhaps is that the condo may need updated in carpet and Decor, especially in the living room. There was no coffee table and that would've come in handy for snacking in front of the television. The bathroom also could've use some updating but it was adequate for our stay.
We would recommend this condo for couples who want to get away in Scottsdale. It was certainly wonderful to feel the warm sun on us knowing our friends back in Ohio we're still in the midst of winter.
Great Stay at Bella Terra
We had a wonderful stay in Scottsdale at Bella Terra. The condo is in immaculate condition and looks exactly like the pictures in the listing. It was beautifully appointed with everything that you would need for a relaxing stay.
All of our questions were answered in a prompt manner and the owners are very accommodating and easy to deal with. You really feel like their guests.
The condo property has a pool and exercise room for the use of guests and is beautifully maintained. It is close to walking paths along the Indian Bend wash and grocery stores, restaurants and golf courses. It is located 15 minutes from Sky Harbor for easy access.
We would recommend this property to friends and family and would definitely stay again.
Hello Judy - Thanks for staying with us. We are glad that you had a relaxing time at Bella Terra. Sorry about the trouble you had with the dryer. We had a new washer and dryer delivered last week. We look forward to hosting you in the future.
Great location in the Scottsdale/ Paradise Valley area of Phoenix. Bella Terra is a very nice development with a great pool and fitness center. We found it very easy to get to anywhere we needed to go including Sky Harbor. We enjoyed downtown Scottsdale for restaurants and events such as the Scottsdale Sunday Affair concert series.
The condo has everything you will need to be comfortable. It was perfect for the two of us for a three month stay. We would book it again for next year but our plans are taking us to a different destination.
Hello Suzanne, it was our pleasure having you as guests this winter. We are glad that you enjoyed Bella Terra and the Scottsdale area. We hope that you and Ron have enjoyable adventures exploring a new city next winter.
