About Rich

My wife is a native of Phoenix, and we met at work over 25 years ago at the Point Resorts. We moved up to Seattle where I was raised, and finally felt we were ready to buy a second home in Scottsdale, so one day we can live in both locations. For the next few years we will share our 2nd home with travelers who would like to spread out a little, have room for the kids, travel with another couple, or just like to have the option of eating in your own back yard. Whatever the reason, we welcome you, and enjoy your vacation!

Rich purchased this house in 2013

Why Rich chose Scottsdale

Fast food and fine dining within in minutes in all directions, all the normal entertainment, abundant golf courses, Barrett Jackson auto auction, TPC Phoenix Open golf tournament, Spring Break baseball, Arabian Horse Show, Bike Week, water park, shopping galore, and of course the weather.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as advertised. We had everything we could possibly need for six adults and two small children. The beds were great; there were plenty of towels, dishes, utensils and cooking essentials to settle in and be at home for the week. The pool and playground were just a short walk and both well maintained. We enjoyed the trails through the development and the outdoor fireplace. The location made it easy to access many of the Phoenix area attractions. Thanks, Rob and Cindy, for sharing your lovely home and for providing great concierge services with Maureen.

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5


Olga and want to tell you that your home is wonderful.. Great location, beautifully decorated and maintained and perfect. Your home had everything e might need, injuring a large array of spices.

I will without a doubt create at least one painting based on the mountains!

Scottsdale exceeded expectations, especially Old Scottsdale!

The restaurants were excellent , the Museum of the west was one I greatly enjoyed!

. It could not have been better!

Owner's Response: David, Thanks for the kind words. We work hard at making the house feel like a real home away from home. I have enjoyed our conversations, and look forward to seeing the painting. Rob

Just Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Robert and Cindy for making our 25 day stay so so comfortable. Your home is tastefully decorated and so comfortable. I fell in love with all the cowboy and Indian art. It is better than the pictures ! The house was immaculate. The kitchen was very well stocked. We had more than enough towels for showers and the pool. Great location and the kiddie park was wonderful for our two grand kids. We totally enjoyed the fire pit roasting marshmallows at night . You really have a gem !

My husband rode one of the bikes every day which saved us from shipping his. Thanks again for sharing. With out a doubt would stay again ! Ricki and Nate

Everything as we were expecting. Owners and concierge service great!

  • 5 of 5

The rental was just as noted on line. The community pool and courts were a simple walk across the street and walking trails were right outside the door. The kitchen was extremely well stocked, lots of spare linens and appreciated that all we needed was there. We hosted grandparents for a few days with ample space, and the rest of the time our two children (17,19) and ourselves had all we needed. Beds were fantastic (and we have rented several places in the past to know good beds) and TV/Wifi service throughout the house. The owners are great - we had a minor issue with the water filter and it was taken care of during the visit at our convenience. Recommend to anyone with family, and the house is very close to lots of fantastic hiking trails. A little far from your main shopping areas, but we appreciated that it was away from the tourist and traffic areas for a quiet relaxing home feeling holiday. The owners even had the home decorated for the Christmas season which we so appreciated having spent Christmas day away from our own tree and extended family.
