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 North Scottsdale

The McDowell Mountain area is the most beautiful area in Phoenix with all of the natural desert landscaping and the mountain range close to the property. 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.

What makes this house unique

5 minutes to Westworld

Beautiful McDowell Mountain golf course and grill

15 minute drive to Phoenix Open

3 minute walk to pool

5 minute drive to neighborhood water park

Bike trails just outside the home

Desert hiking trails all around

Quiet family neighborhood

Backyard gas fireplace, and Grill

Wow! The Perfect Desert Property---Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is special with southwest designer touches, high ceilings, and interesting architectural details. Beds, furniture, and linens are comfy and large colorful beach towels are available for pool activities. Wait to buy groceries because many basics are offered in the well stocked and equipped kitchen. We rented the house for the 4 adult bikes available and the paved bike trails around the area (included is a tire pump and there is one adult helmet + a child’s bike with a helmet). There were lots of sidewalks outside the area which made for safe riding and the trails were wonderful. Two shopping centers are close by= leaving the area take a right on N Thompson Peak Parkway for Bashas’ Grocery and CVS or go left and a bit further away and find AJ’s Fine Foods, Safeway, Starbucks, and Walgreens. There are two community centers one being just steps from the house=large heated year around pool, wading pool, hot tub, 2 tennis courts, beach valley ball court, basketball court, kiddies playground, and grassy area for catch, frisbee, etc.. 4 tennis rackets, basketball, volleyball, and pool noodles can be found in the very nice garage. You are able to reserve a tennis court or a lap lane through the office at the center but usually this is not necessary. Owners of the property are super easy to contact and answer questions and their property manager = Maureen was terrific throughout our stay. Location is very, very quiet with sunset views from the back patio. Enjoy!!!

FYI-6 chairs at dining table not 4 as the picture shows + 4 more of the same chairs around the large round table in the kitchen + a dining table extension kept in the garage if needed.
