And our favorite team, the Chicago CUBS, spring-training Hohokam Stadium is only 30 minutes away. Phoenix also hosts numerous professional sports teams including the AZ Cardinals football team, Diamondback baseball team, Phoenix Suns basketball team, and the Phoenix Coyotes hockey team. There is so much to do and see in Scottsdale! Welcome and enjoy your stay at our Krause Hause!

Sandra Krause purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Sandra Krause chose Scottsdale

Our family has done extensive traveling and it was important to us that our own vacation home have all the comforts of home. This property had all the items on our check-list...*single-story town home with attached 2-car garage *large and spacious kitchen *expansive open living floor plan *3 large bedrooms, but BEST OF ALL...the patio, the wildlife, the sunset views, and the open space!! It is common to watch hummingbirds, quail, cardinals, bluejays and other wildlife from the kitchen breakfast table or the patio vantage point. And if you're so inclined, you are welcome to fill the bird feeder to keep them coming back during your stay! A true 'home away from home'!!

What makes this townhome unique

Our Krause Hause is so conveniently located to all the must-see's and must-do's of the Scottsdale area. From the many world-class golf courses, baseball stadiums, shopping resorts, spas, and nearby superb dining and entertainment options to the beauty of the local hiking destinations and walking paths...there is absolutely something for everyone!

Once you've exhausted yourself with the myriad of local activities, you are 'welcomed home' to a relaxing night with all the comforts of your own home. We tried to find a retreat with a balance of modern conveniences and natural serenity and this is it!!

Awesome townhouse!! Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We worked out an annual lease with the owners for this townhouse. We rented it sight unseen based on the photos posted on VRBO. The photos are accurate and the layout of the townhouse makes it seem even bigger than we thought it would be. Every appliance from the washer/dryer to the well equipped kitchen has top of the line appliances! The kitchen is a chef's dream! You have every cooking tool and device you could imagine. Everything is organized thoughtfully and easy to access. We love the area and the neighborhood. It is extremely quiet and all the neighbors are so friendly. Be prepared to wave as you drive through Tesoro. Everyone waves hello! The location is close to everything! The 101, Kierland, every great golf course in Scottsdale. It is only 25 minutes from PHX and usually runs about $30 one way in an Uber. The owner (Sandra) is quick to respond anytime there is a need and has been more like a concierge than a landlord this year. I can't say enough good things about how flexible she has been during our entire stay. Do not hesitate to rent here.

Escape from the polar vortex!

  • 5 of 5

This unit in Tesoro is a fabulous home away from home. It's location is convenient to everything - shopping, hiking, spring training, golf, visits to Sedona or the Grand Canyon. You can enjoy all that Arizona has to offer! Sandra was very easy to work with, and she thought of every detail in equipping the home for comfort. It is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and feels like home. Wonderful! We will definitely return.

Feb. Getaway 2014

  • 5 of 5

Our stay this year was extremely relaxing and enjoyable. The condo has great space, comfortable furnishings, and a wonderful outside patio complete with state of the art grill, dining table and lounge chairs.

The condo is equipped with everything needed to make our stay as comfortable as being in our own home. Great care is taken by the owners to keep it as pristine as possible.

It was hard to leave at the end of the month. We enjoyed every day of our stay.

This is a very well maintained home and beautifully decorated. Its quiet, very spacious and immaculate. We've stayed at other VBRO's that lacked many kitchen essentials and this one is fully stocked with about anything a person would need. I love the kitchen! There is plenty of room to gather around plus a table for 6 and a snack bar. Great for entertaining. Plus there's also a large table in the dining room. It's all set up for wireless communication including a Bose sound link. The patio off the back is very large and secluded so its like having your own little yard. Having the outside space is such a plus. The pool area is beautiful.
