About David

We both grew up in North Phoenix and we live near Durango Colorado. We always wanted to have a place in the Valley where we could stay for short periods, attend some sporting events, do some winter fishing and mountain biking.

David purchased this house in 2012

Why David chose Phoenix

North Phoenix is spread out and new. This home is so perfectly located, you can get just about anywhere in the Valley in less than 30 minutes. Close to public lands and beautiful open desert and lakes. Unlimited shopping choices and sporting events, car shows, name it.

What makes this house unique

Spacious home along the Desert Foothills Scenic Drive between North Phoenix and Cave Creek. Beautiful uncluttered area close to everything. Great trails in the area for walking and biking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is very spacious and clean as advertised. I was there 4 days and spend most of the time golfing, but when I got back. It was really like being at home, true meaning of home away from home.

Comfortable home in quiet neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! We had a good feeling about the place the minute we opened the front door. The master suite was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The living area was a good size and well furnished. We really appreciated having a good wifi connection and cable. Dave was a great host, answering queries quickly and positively. The property was very true to the pictures and descriptions provided and was well maintained and spotlessly clean. It was great that as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer there were also laundry detergents there for our use. The back garden (as we Brits would call it) was pretty with the added benefit of a grapefruit tree providing a fresh breakfast treat. We were a couple so there was plenty of room for us here. The only downside for a larger group or family would be that eating outside might be a problem as there is just a small table and two chairs to use.

The location was very convenient for getting onto the 101/51/SR17 and the local shops were just a short distance away. We found a great coffee shop on the corner of Dynamite and Tatum which we would recommend for a good latte. It was just a short trip to Cave Creek which is well worth a visit.

Very comfortable, clean home

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent, comfortable vacation home with easy access to the 101. We have family living within walking distance so was especially ideal for us. The home was practically perfect in every way. Just one point would be a hairdryer in the property to make it perfect. The best part was picking fresh grapefruits from the tree in the lovely garden every morning for breakfast. Delicious. The house has easy access to Desert Ridge shops and restaurants, there is everything there you would want plus more. Hiking in the area is fantastic, we hiked Pinnacle Peak and Gatway loop trails. Camelback mountain is a great hike too, we did this earlier in the year. Sedona is 2 hours away for amazing hikes, views and red rock formations. It is stunning and well worth a visit. We skied in Flagstaff this time for a day, again this is only 2 hours drive away.

We certainly will look at renting this property again, as is perfect for us and the owners are very easy to communicate with.

Thank you David for letting us use your home

Great Rental - perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home. It was cozy and perfect for our family with young children. Close to the freeway for easy access around Phoenix. It was very easy to access the house, and it was nice to park the car in the garage. The only hiccup we ran into was the air was off when we arrived at 4:30 pm and so the inside air was at 95 degrees (outside was 110 plus- Phoenix in the summer!) . We turned the air on and left for four hours- when we returned it was down to 86 degrees - it didn't cool down until the middle of the night, so the first night was a bit rough - I would suggest the owners have the air turned down prior to arrival during the summer months.

Other than that, our stay was fantastic and we would definitely stay here again when we return to Phoenix.

Fantastic Vacation Rental~great location~safe area~super clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was perfect for our family with young children. It's really in a great neighborhood and safe part of town. Located close to so many convenient places...restaurants, fast food, grocery shopping, tourist attractions, etc.

The owners were super easy to communicate with and gave us all the information we needed. It was a very easy transaction. And super easy to access once we arrived.

The house is very clean and well maintained both inside and out. Everything works properly and we had very comfortable sleeping arrangements.

The house looks just like the photos. It's a wonderful vacation house~I don't think we'll ever stay in a hotel again when we travel there to see my sister. We will definitely rent this house again. We loved it!
