About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 2-4 people


Renovated within the past year, all new furniture, flooring paint, bathroom. Ethan Allen furnishings, this is not your average vacation rental. This 1 bedroom/1 bathroom condo is located in the prestigious Paradise Valley area of North Scottsdale and sleeps 2-4 people. The complex has a tropical 5 star resort quality pool area. This area includes a large heated pool, hot tub, 2 gas BBQs, and a full workout gym. The condo is located on the second floor of a two story complex in the quietest location and unit in the complex. The crowd in the complex is fairly mixed, however most of the units are rarely used vacation homes and it is very relaxing and quiet. Condo is recently renovated with all granite counter tops and tile floors throughout. The ceilings are vaulted to 10 feet, and there is a fireplace in the living area. Private patio off the living area of the unit. The condo also features our own WIFI network and a phone with free local calling. One covered assigned parking spot and lots of guest parking available.

The condo itself is complete with contemporary furnishings. All the furniture and fixtures are less than 1 year old. Living room has a large comfortable sectional couch, 60 inch Panasonic 1080p plasma in living room and 46 inch Sony plasma in bedroom (complete with full HD cable, including every sports channel) and a PS3 (which is also a Blue Ray player). Kitchen is complete with everything needed to cook high quality meals, including knives, all kitchen appliances, even spices. All granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances make the kitchen a joy to cook in. Dinner area has a table with seating for four. Bathroom has an oversized tub. The bedroom has a queen bed, again accented with nice contemporary furnishings and linens. The unit has a full size washer and dryer. Everything you need to have a great and relaxing vacation in Scottsdale is in the unit. Although the unit is a 1 bedroom we do have an aerobed that blows up in seconds complete with a headboard, many visitors have slept on the aerobed in the living room. For a portable bed it is extremely comfortable. Four people can comfortably stay here much more comfortably than two hotel rooms.

If this unit is booked please do not hesitate to contact the owner as we own multiple vacation rental properties in Scottsdale area as well as another 1 bedroom unit in the same complex that may suit your vacation needs.

Spring training

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable well kept condo in really nice affluent complex. Great place to come back and relax after days spent at the ballpark and taking in the sun. Pool and BBQ area are very nice, condo grounds are well kept. Close to old town and walking distance to many restaurants and grocery stores in the immediate area. Owners were responsive and helpful when needed. Also very important for us was that the unit is quiet. We didn't hear a soul from another unit the entire stay.

clean affordable condo

  • 5 of 5

Nice meticulously clean condo in a fantastic location. The complex was equally as nice and pool was heated to nice temperature, the hot tub was also great in the evening. Location is fantastic and afforded us a great home base for golf, spring training and hiking. Its called Paradise Valley for a reason! 5 stars all the way.

Perfect escape from winter. Loved the resort style pool area, perfectly heated. Condo was clean and comfortable, had everything we needed to enjoy some much needed time away.

Excellent recent stay at this Bella Terra condo. First impressions during booking were the communication was great and the welcome letter had all the information we needed and more. Upon arrival we put in the door code and arrived to a well appointed, clean and comfortable condo. It was basically new feeling, very well kept I personally could not find anything out of place. Many basic spices and condiments supplied witch helped keep down some costs on a short stay. It also had some books, DVDs and pool floats all of which we used. The location served us well for getting around various areas of the valley. This is prime central Scottsdale location, but did offer easy access to highways for day trips elsewhere. Bella Terra has a nice pool area (heated to a comfortable temperature), the BBQs worked well and the hot tub was hot. 5 star experience front to back.

Great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy, well kept, fully stocked condo in an excellent wealthy area. Far better than any resort Ive stayed at in the area for a far cheaper price. Check in was just a door code, after booking I received a 3 page detailed welcome letter that answered any questions before arrival. High speed wifi, full HD cable package, gas heat, cold ac, fireplace, heated pool, nice workout facility and covered parking. I will be back to enjoy the condo, eat at Rusconis and relax.

Disappointed. Doesn't live up to expectations.

  • 1 of 5

This property promised a lot, particularly in terms of service, and it did not deliver. The unit itself is fine, not luxurious or premium hotel quality, but decent - certainly getting dated. The "linens" were scratchy old towels that I would typically reserve for my dog's baths, the bedding was mismatched Walmart quality, and there was no soap (hand, bath, or dish soap) provided in the unit. Certainly not what one would expect for a 6 night stay (paying full bore mind you), AND when the checkout instructions indicate one is to wash the dishes and return to their proper location. When I asked for dish soap I was advised that they don't provide it because people complain about the brand or the scent. Furthermore, Stephen advised me that because we were the first guests of the season there wasn't anything on hand - usually the previous guests leave some behind. Not what one would anticipate. I expressed concern over the dishes in the cupboards being cleaned properly, given there was no dish soap or dishwasher soap, and was assured they had been. Upon inspection I found food crusted on cutlery and had to rewash everything myself - we had already eaten from the dishes at this point. Stephen did offer to reimburse me for the soap if it was a "concern." I think the point has been missed. We were expecting higher quality and higher service for the amount we paid. Oh, and when I asked for an extra night add on a few weeks ahead of our arrival due to a change in plans, we were gouged 30 percent more than the original price for the extra night - only to arrive finding that the unit is being heavily discounted in this time period to half the original

amount. This has been a shameful experience. We are seasoned VRBO guests and expect more.

Owner's Response: Classic case of a customer trying to bribe an owner into a large refund (she wanted "atleast" 50% back) in exchange for not leaving a 1 star review. Obviously this is not a one star unit which the other reviews can clearly back up. It has all newer furniture and just went through a 30k renovation. Where materials such as carrera marble were used. This was my first guest of the season right before her stay my cleaners did their major deep cleaning before the winter season. We also change sheet sets every three months and after pulling out the package the ones used in this unit were 800 thread count that we purchased from home goods, they were brand new the guest before this guest had checked in. In response to hand soap, dish soap, and bath soap, that is ALWAYS left by my cleaners for every customer. They clean 150 times a year for us and they have never forgot these items from what I've heard before, I guess its possible but again I think this was the guest trying anything to get money back. During her stay and after she sent nearly 100 emails and texts demanding I refund the stay in exchange for a good review. Really unfortunate that people will try and take advantage of owners trying to get a free trip. However this is the way the VRBO system is set up. I really hope the other guest speak for this unit as we take great pride in providing the best VRBO experience in every unit we own.

This unit is located in the prestigious Paradise Valley area of Scottsdale, and is central to both Old Town (10 mins) and all the golf courses you may want to play up in North Scottsdale. Many great restaurants (lots of good happy hours!!), shopping, grocery stores (Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Frys), and anything you would want to make a great vacation are within minutes of the unit. The closest main intersection is Shea & Tatum. We are also close to all the shopping near Scottsdale & Shea. Tons of golf minutes from the condo, the most well known courses only minutes away are Camelback and McCormick Ranch. If you need Cardinals, Suns, and Coyotes tickets we have season tickets to all three teams and can help you with getting those as well.
