About the property

Beautiful Mini Resort for 8

This 4 BR, 4 Bath home is ideal for a group planning a week of golf, baseball spring training fans, and for couples looking for a special getaway. The home is very kid-friendly, but really shines for adults who want to have a relaxing, resort-like experience in a quiet neighborhood. Those who do bring their children will appreciate Sonoran Hills Park with its playground equipment, tennis and basketball courts.

About Russ

I am from the Chicago area. I purchased my AZ home so that my family, friends and myself could have a getaway. Now that the flock have left the nest, I move between the Wisconsin and beautiful Scottsdale while traveling for my work.

Russ purchased this house in 2011

Why Russ chose North Scottsdale

I looked for a property in Scottsdale for two years before I was able to find one that really appealed to me. I told my agent that the home had to 'feel resorty' and have the capacity for 8 people to stay comfortably. The house had to have an office/bedroom so that we could maintain a virtual presence at our jobs even while out of town enjoying our evenings as a vacation. A quiet neighborhood with friendly people would be a plus. Well, I got all of that! What a beautiful home. I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

The house was designed by an architect for his own use so a lot of thought went into the wonderful layout, both inside and outside.

Mountain views from the second floor are complemented by desert views from the first. The master suite has a fireplace, walk-in closet and walk-in shower for two. One of the three second floor bedrooms also has an in-suite bathroom. The other two second floor bedrooms are served by a full bath that is adjacent to them. Lastly, there's a full bath with shower on the first floor for those who are getting in and out of the pool. This bathroom can also serve someone who wishes to sleep in the Office on the European-style leather couch that folds flat to create a comfortable bed for one.

The yard and patio is compact but has 5 'rooms' for your enjoyment -- the dining area, the fire pit, the lounge area, the pool area and the citrus orchard.

There is also a second floor patio with 2 lounge chairs, a patio table with umbrella and seating for 4. With all of these options, there are almost always shaded places to sit outside no matter what time of day. The architect's multiple outdoor area design also suits larger groups who have guests who crave a little privacy.

The outside mini-resort makes this a great home for entertainment and the inside 'bar', right across from the office, makes it easy to transition from work to play for those that have to maintain contact with work.

Lastly, you'll enjoy having your whole group get into the heated spa/pool together, comfortably seated while a waterfall and jest create a soothing current of water.

Great property and location.

  • 5 of 5

This home is rented for a business trip with long hours, so we don't get to enjoy the amenities as much as we'd like. However, the home is kept up nicely and is in the perfect location for our business. We have rented this home from VRBO many times, and have always had a pleasant experience. The owner is great to work with.

Quite simply the best

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and once again, it met our expectations. The house is warm and welcoming and the owner is focused on making your experience a memorable one. Any questions or issues that arise are quickly addressed. Great location and unlike a lot of other properties we've stayed at, the fridge and cupboards are well stocked with almost anything that you might need. We'd definitely recommend this property to our friends.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, there were 6 adults we had plenty of privacy and room. The house has a nice lay out and is in a quiet neighborhood. The home has a spool which was perfect as it was very warm during our visit and provided a nice area to cool off, but it also was heated and has jets so at night when it was cool it was also a perfect place to relax. Over all the property is well cared for, some lights were not working and the kitchen cabinets need some repair. The property owner was available for any problems or questions that we had. I would consider this home for future visits to the area.

Owner's Response: New kitchen lights have arrived and will be installed in late March when we can get scaffolding put in place to install them -- the ceiling is 24 feet high!. In the meantime, extra floor lighting has been made available to illuminate the countertop. We will also be replacing the magnets that hold the kitchen cabinet doors so that they won't easily swing open. I'm pleased that Mary M recommends that they would use my home again!

Great Scottsdale location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a second time and would gladly rent this home again. It is large, comfortable, centrally located, convenient and safe. The kitchen is very well equiped and there is a great grill; we ate in half the time. We loved the Spool
