Why Paul Jungel USMC Cpt (Ret) chose Central Scottsdale

When we got ready to retire, we knew we loved the Scottsdale area and wanted to retain ties with this part of the country. While our ultimate goal is to eventually live in Hawaii, Scottsdale is as close as we could get without actually being in that tropical paradise. This location allows us to reach anywhere in the valley simply by taking the 101 to the North or to the South. The Airport is only 20 minutes to the south, and the Phoenix Zoo, and Botanical Gardens are all within a short drive of the condo making the condo a 'family friendly' vacation location.

What makes this condo unique

The condo offers quick and easy access to Spring Training Facilities to a number of Major League Baseball Teams. It also promotes physical fitness with nine tennis courts, seven swimming pools with jacuzzi, and a fitness center offering classes and equipment for working out in private. These are all things we look for with our active life styles when we want to vacation somewhere.

Great Time at The Raquet Club, Scottsdale Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation in Arizona and we picked a great place to stay! This condo is exceptionally clean with all new kitchen appliances and many extra small appliances, which make it just like “home”. The two bedrooms / two bathrooms are ideal for family or company. On arrival, we were greeted by April, the property manager, who was very gracious and gave us a tour of the complex.

The location is excellent, central to many tourist attractions and shopping. (only 4 minutes to Starbuck’s) The grounds are very well kept and our early morning routine was a walk around the quiet, serene complex, followed by breakfast on the patio. At times, we walked to the clubhouse to sit on the deck watching tennis.

Paul went out of his way to accommodate us in our schedule and we sincerely appreciated his friendly manner and prompt response to our questions.

We certainly recommend Paul and Jennifer’s condo for a relaxing get-away.

Jennifer and I appreciate that you took the time to let us know what you liked about your stay and your words about April only reinforce how we feel about our Property Manager/friend. You are always welcome back and we hope that when you again think about vacationing in the Scottsdale area, you'll consider staying with us. Semper fi, Paul

Beautifully renovated two-bedroom condo in Scottsdale's Racquet Club

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I have stayed three years in a row at Paul & Jennifer Jungel's condo in the Scottsdale Racquet Club. It's been an exceptional experience. Nearby shopping - very convenient dining - world-class hiking and sight-seeing such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen West, The Museum of Musical Instruments in Phoenix, and the nearby Butterfly Wonderland (a must-see!) The Racquet Club offers lots of activities, many wonderful swimming pools, and of course perfect tennis courts - both hard-court and grass. I personally enjoyed the nearby Greenbelt - fourteen mile path on which you can jog or cycle. Paul and Jennifer keep a wonderful guest condo. Two full bedrooms, private bathrooms for two, and plenty of excellent sheets, towels, and pretty much everything you'd need in a vacation home. They've renovated the kitchen with stunning marble counter tops and other first-class amenities. You have a private parking spot right in front of the unit, and the security inside the racquet club is excellent. The sunsets sitting up at the clubhouse deck are stunning. If you're looking for a comfortable, stimulating "home-away-from-home" in Scottsdale, you can't do better than the Jungels' condo unit at the Racquet Club. Highly recommended!

Excellent 2-bedroom condo at Racquet Club in Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying at the Jungels' condo at the Racquet Club - once again, we loved it. The facilities are fantastic: you're surrounded by tennis, a variety of swimming pools and hot tubs, and activities that my mother enjoys very much such as book clubs and bridge. It's got great proximity to restaurants, shops, and other Phoenix sites like Taliesin West and The Musical Instrument Museum. A very quick drive down to Old Town Scottsdale to see the famous Art Walk. The Scottsdale Ranch area, where the Racquet Club is located, has a great variety of options for cycling and running (I jogged almost daily on the nearby Green Belt pathway system.) And you're very close to all the mountain hikes in the Phoenix area. Paul and Jennifer maintain a lovely two-bedroom, two-bathroom home and it's extremely comfortable, clean and well-stocked with everything you'll need for your stay in Scottsdale. Very highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you Doug. You know you are always welcome back. Jennifer and I will be putting in a new granite kitchen countertop and sink and repainting the kitchen this summer. Your next visit should be even more enjoyable as you notice the changes I enjoy our developing and ongoing friendship and look forward to your next sojourn out west. Semper fi

Great Location - Perfect Size

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the Jungels’ condo. The two bedroom, two bath size was perfect. It was clean and any issues were handle immediately. The location was perfect - near great restaurants, near bike trails, near activity centers and near any kind of store you could ask for. There were pools to choose from and the workout room had the necessary equipment. The tennis pro was very good and pickle ball was available also. I am looking forward to going back in November and December. My friends who visited me loved it, too.

Wonderful spring in Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my recent stay at the Scottsdale Racquet Club condo and its tropical setting in the midst of the Sonoran Desert. The condo is very well maintained and well equipped, and the owners are helpful and attentive. The Racquet Club is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping, and hiking trails, and is easy to reach. I enjoyed early morning walks around the property with its abundant vegetation and flowering plants and cottontail rabbits!
