Beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this beautiful villa twice and it is my plan to stay there again. The property is like a home away from home with all of the comforts and then some. My friends and I found it clean, the beds comfortable and the kitchen has everything one could need. There is a pretty little patio facing the lake, perfect for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. A walking path is just out the front door for a leisurely walk around the lake or to local restaurants. Other great restaurants, grocery stores and night life are just a short drive away. The property manager, Tod, was readily available to answer any questions. We'll be back!

The best thing about this villa was the location. Lakeside Villas is convenient to everything. Main thoroughfares are right outside the complex. The downside of that was the considerable traffic noise at peak travel times...mornings, noon and night.

The second best thing was that I was allowed to bring my pet.

Another plus, the complex itself was quiet and the neighbors friendly. The man made lake and bike/walking path are indeed right out your patio doors.


Unfortunately, it went downhill from there.

The unit is advertised with a heated pool. The pool was not heated during our stay. The owner refunded $200 of the months rent for the inconvenience.

The unit had not been cleaned in some time. We felt compelled to wash the sheets and vacuum before we settled in and, even then, we did not walk around barefoot. We also had to remove the drains in both bathrooms because of the considerable hair that plugged the stoppers. That was a disgusting job. The vacuum cleaner hadn't been emptied in who knows how long as well as the clothes dryer filter.

Additionally, there was a bug problem. Some sort of jumping black spiders with their webs lacing lamps, windows and screens. But the icing on the cake had to be the roaches, large, 2" plus(!) and small. The large ones lived in the kitchen and the small ones preferred the bathrooms. It was disconcerting and I complained and requested a partial refund for this annoyance as well. The property manager declined and was quite rude about it. He even accused us of being "professional renters"....I still don't exactly know what that is. The manager was dishonest in his dealings and a fairly unsavory individual. The blinds in the kitchen could not be accessed unless a stool was used and the dining room blinds were non functional and had to be manually rolled up and secured in order to look out the window. The day we moved in the manager pointed the blinds out and said they would be fixed during our stay. That did not happen.

To summarize, for this amount of money you can find much cleaner upscale lodging with functioning amenities in the Scottsdale area. The Lakeside Villa complex receives high marks for its location and neighbors but the villa we rented was vastly overpriced and badly in need of thorough cleaning and updating.

Owner's Response: It’s always unfortunate as a renter when you book a property and it’s nothing as advertised, but that was not the case with this renter. I will agree that the property always had a heated community pool until the month before when the HOA decided not to heat the pool for the month of December due to the lack of use…this was completely out of our control. The renter calculated that with the pool being down they should be reimbursed $1000 for the inconvenience, we negotiated and agreed upon $700. After that the phone calls began, I believe they felt they should complain more and they would get more money…you have heard lately about “Fake News” the renter was spewing “Fake Reporting”. The renter told me the DVD was not working and they rented all these movies and they couldn’t watch them. I went over and found that the player was unplugged by the renters. I hire one of the best cleaning companies in Scottsdale and the cleaning issues are straight out lies as I personal check the property before the cleaner leaves. I am a neat freak and if it passes my inspection I guarantee it will pass yours. As far as roaches, the property is sprayed 2 times a year…in Arizona you can never get rid of roaches, you can only hope to control them…and let me say this is the first time I have ever heard from a renter about roaches inside the property. After receiving the 5th or 6th phone call, “Fake Reporting”, I informed the renter that I have had enough of this and I told her I can see what you are doing and it’s not going to work. Dishonest, unsavory renters do not sit well with me and I will not have any of this. In-fact, I told them I would not be reimbursing a dime! After that phone call they were as nice as could be and I did end up sending them two hundred dollars for the heated pool inconvenience. Let me be clear, this is a very beautiful, clean, well-furnished villa in a great location and I will not stand for “Professional Renters” who can’t afford to rent this property and make false reports just to get some kind of refund. I do understand that things happen that are out of everyone’s control and I will do whatever I can to make it right so you can enjoy your vacation.

Cozy, Comfortable, Relaxing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We got to enjoy our Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays in this wonderful villa. As other reviewers have said, this is a very well-kept and comfortable retreat. It is located in a gated community in the heart of the McCormick Ranch area, with friendly and welcoming neighbors. On evenings when I came in late at night by myself, I had no safety concerns. You can walk to several restaurants in the area (Grass Roots was a favorite) and are close to Fry's and Albertsons for food shopping. It's a short drive to many other great restaurants (Vigs and Wally's were great). Five minutes to the drive through at Starbucks! The villa provides everything you need to enjoy a cozy stay, and we felt very much at home. We had some cold weather while we were here, so we were able to enjoy a lovely fire in the wood burning fireplace. The property manager was helpful and friendly, and responded to any questions we had in a timely manner. We hope to have the opportunity to stay here again!

One of a kind home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place and you can tell the owner put a lot of work into making this house a home. It has been beautifully remodeled and every night while I was sitting outside on the deck facing the water people would walk by and mention how they tried to rent the place but it was all booked and they were jealous I got it! Ultimate relaxation happens here and I cannot wait to go back and will definitely make this place a yearly vacation for my family and myself.
