About the property

1 Bedroom /1 Bathroom - Park View Setting; Sleeps 2 - 4

We are a private couple who bought, furnished and decorated our condo to accommodate us for drop-in stays of a few days to a few weeks. We learned that we wanted HDTV with DVR/DVD, a heated pool and Jacuzzi (and beach towels to enjoy them with) a great bed, comfortable, upscale furnishings and decorating comparable to luxury resorts. We liked Scottsdale so well that we've bought a bigger place close by, so now you can enjoy resort living luxury in our unit at The Plaza Residences of Scottsdale. We are private owners and this is our only rental....and we sweat the details. This luxury condo is located in a gated community on the upper level overlooking a park-like/green belt setting and is within walking distance to the Westin Resort and Spa, The Kierland Commons Shopping Center and the Scottsdale Quarter Entertainment District. You can easily walk to an array of fine stores including Ann Taylor, Coach and The Apple Store. You can also enhance your vacation experience by strolling to any of the more than 25 restaurants that include True Food Kitchen, Mastro’s Ocean Club, Morton’s Steakhouse, PF Chang, Tommy Bahama, Cheesecake Factory and more.

This newly remodeled and professionally decorated 1 bedroom unit has been set up so that all you’ll need to bring are your personal belongings and sun glasses. The master bedroom has a top-of-the-line, king pillow-top bed with luxury bedding and we’ve included plenty of bath linens and pool towels for you and your guests. The sofa in the living room converts to a queen sleeper and includes a very comfortable, inflatable mattress. There is plenty of new queen-sized bedding for the sofa sleeper.

The kitchen has stainless steel (water and ice in door refrigerator) appliances and we’ve provided everything we can imagine you’d want to enjoy your vacation from toaster to blender to coffee maker to plastic food storage containers, aluminum foil, zip-lock bags, etc. All dinnerware, pots, pans and utensils are new were purchased new in January 2013. We also don’t want you take time shopping for necessities such as dishwasher or laundry detergent (full size washer and dryer are included), so we’ll make sure you have a supply of each to use during your stay.

There are Samsung flat screen TV’s in the living room and bedroom. The one in the living room is equipped with an HD/DVR Receiver from Cox and Bose™ DVD & Surround Sound system. Both the living room and the bedroom have ceiling fans and each opens onto the balcony patio where you can read the morning paper and enjoy your coffee or afternoon refreshments. We offer high-speed, wireless, password-protected internet service to our guests.

The Plaza Residence resort amenities include a clubhouse with two heated pools, whirlpool spa, putting green, gas BBQ grills, fitness center, billiard room, movie screening room, business center, all located within the gated, park-like grounds. You're not just getting a great get-away condo, but the resort lifestyle comes as well.

About Peter Scherer

We have homes elsewhere and we travel between them a lot. We have family here so we'd come in for holidays, special events or just to get away and stay for up to a month or so. We've come to like Scottsdale so much that we've bought another place here better suited for grand children. This is our only rental unit and we furnished and equipped it for the type of vacation experience that we would want to enjoy if our roles were reversed. You will not be is the perfect home away from home.

Why Peter Scherer chose Scottsdale

We take pride in maintaining this home to the highest standards. We prefer monthly rentals but will consider weekly clients too. In order to maintain the freshness of our new remodeling and decorating, we have decided to not rent the unit from June through September except to previous clients.

What makes this condo unique

The large balcony can be entered through the sliding doors located in the bedroom and living room. The beauty of living in this second floor unit - in addition to not having anyone above you - is the tremendous privacy you enjoy. While each room has privacy blinds, you do not need to pull them for privacy as the unit windows all face a park like setting with no pedestrian traffic. The view from inside or on the balcony is very placid and relaxing....just perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon cool drink. Also, part of the reason we love Scottsdale so much in the winter is the weather! We like to open the place up and even sleep with fresh air. The privacy and security offered by this second floor, park setting allows you to take advantage of our weather 24-7.

Great place .... Everything you need!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean and very well kept. It is new and nicely updated. The location is great so close to everything in Scottsdale. It is at the back of the complex so it is nice and quiet. Peter and his wife were very easy to contact if needed. They were very accommodating for our arrival and departure times. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice one bedroom place.

Extra Special

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation through VRBO and we couldn't be happier. The condo was exactly as advertised, was situated in a gated community, and was close to all shopping and restaurants. The owner (Peter) was very good at providing us with the proper directions to his home and made us feel welcome right up front.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in recommending this property to our friends. We hope to return next year for a longer period.

Comfortable, convenient condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week in November 2016 and were very happy with it. Peter is well-organized and, despite our last minute booking and trouble with our credit card, was able to pull it off and get us in without a hitch. The condo has a comfortable king bed and well-equipped kitchen and the outdoor pool/BBQ area is very nice. It is close to shopping and restaurants as well as McDowell Preserve and Taleisin West. Peter showed up promptly to replace a couple of bulbs and was very friendly when we met him.

This is my 3rd VRBO stay and by far, the loveliest and most well appointed property I've had the pleasure of staying in. Any sundry item you could possibly need is in the unit for your convenience. As for the amenities; the towels are fluffy, the linens are high quality, the furniture and wall art is modern and beautiful, and the appliances are very nice. The balcony overlooks a landscaped lawn and trees across the fence are filled with birds. The property is behind a secure fence system, a gym is available as is a courtyard with two pools and a spa. The apartment condo is conveniently located close to Kierland Commons District and The Quarters filled with shopping and dining. The owners couldn't be more pleasant or accommodating. My husband and I literally could find nothing wrong with this property - it is simply the best. We really enjoyed our stay in the Scottsdale area.
