Absolutely stunning. The house was perfect for our family weekend. We fell in love with the house.

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home. Everything was top notch. Perfect for our family vacation, everyone fell in love with the house. High end, quality, luxurious rental. It really surpassed all of our expectations. The property management was so easy to work with. The only thing that was minor was there were quite a few scorpions and spiders in the casita and the house. Given the location in the desert, this was not so much of a surprise. Other than that we loved everything about it, highly recommend it, and can't wait to rent the property again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Ashley and her family had a wonderful time in the home, and would love to have them back anytime! Summertime is the most active season for critters in the desert, and we take our pest control very seriously with regular treatments and proactive monitoring. We do occasionally see bugs inside that are already dead (which, according to our professional pest control tech, means everything is working!), and on any large property in Scottsdale like this it is possible to see bugs in the middle of the summer -- a sign of a healthy desert ecosystem. This property has been enjoyed year round by vacationers for years, and while we cannot guarantee summer travelers won't encounter any critters, we rarely hear of any sightings. We look forward to seeing Ashley again at Villa Solare!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Wow, the folks at Desert Vista Luxury Homes do it right! This was our best vacation ever and the home exceeded our expectations -- so beautiful in person even better than the pictures! We saw a couple longtime friends who live there, and we loved the restaurants that were nearby. We used everything at the house: the pool, huge barbecue, steam shower, putting green, and especially the theater. Had a ping pong tournament too which was fun. The whole house speaker system was great to play our music by the pool. Everything was perfect. The owners made sure we waned for nothing!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We have rented houses all over the country and this is the best one yet. We had a family gathering of 14 for a week. The size and quality of this place allowed everyone to have space and to come together for meals. Jamie and CJ were awesome to deal with. You will not be disappointed in this property!!!

I would recommend this experience for up to 4 couples. Both CJ and Jamie were great to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a number of VRBO places in the past and every experience has been a good one but this one was exceptional. The house was impeccable and even though it seemed far away from most of the hotspots in Scottsdale it was very easy to get where we wanted to go in 10-15 minutes. The best part was that the house was stocked with basics such as coffee, paper towels, salt etc. All we had to buy was what we would consume for the week. We recognize this comes at a cost to the owner but it was so welcome that we know the next time we plan a couples retreat we will repeat our experience. My only suggestion is that because future visitors are looking for an experience I would provide a grocery delivery service so that upon arrival they can avoid the run around of shopping. If I could give 6 stars I would so 5 stars must suffice.

Owner's Response: We loved meeting Carlos and his friends and having them as our guests. It would have been nice to know that they would have liked grocery delivery service for their stay because we gladly provide this service upon request! We shop meticulously and deliver items to the home on the day of arrival. We organize and put all items away in the kitchen prior to our guests' check-in so that everything is ready upon arrival. Many of our guests have taken advantage of this service and we will gladly make arrangements for grocery delivery with Carlos next time!

Villa Solare is an EXCEPTIONAL property

  • 5 of 5

My son was married in Phoenix this past weekend and needed a place for my family (from Chicago) to stay. 13 of us stayed in this immaculately decorated home. The weather was fantastic and we enjoyed most of our time hanging out at the pool and hot tub. It really was the perfect hang out with my family for our once-in-a-lifetime memory of our sons wedding. The adult kids played board games, cards, and ping pong, putt putt as well as spending a lot of time in the hot tub. There was lots to do. My parents spent their evenings in the theatre room watching tv. It was a great place for them to watch the Waste Management Open as well as the Super Bowl. CJ was very responsive to our needs and was impressed by their service. There was a bottle of wine waiting to greet us. We stayed up late our first night drinking the wine outside by the fireplace and looking at the stars. It was just so incredibly beautiful. In the evenings, we watched the sunset on the balcony of our master suite. There were plenty of towels for everyone--both bath and pool towels. Pool towels were very large, which was great. The only thing I could say that the house could have used, were more extra blankets. Since there were so many of us, it would have been nice to have extra blankets for watching tv or sitting outside in the evening. Other than that, the house had everything we could want or need. I would love to come back to Villa Solare. It made our special wedding week with my family and son so special. Thank you, CJ & Jamie, for being so great at what you do. LOVED THIS HOUSE! I have such wonderful memories from it now....
