About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

I spared no expense when upgrading this home. The back yard is amazing with a new Jacuzzi, twin fire pits, full custom furniture and a Lynx outdoor kitchen with seafood boiler. Inside, the entire home has been decorated with Stickley furniture. The beds are new and fitted with the finest linens. The guest house is fully self contained with a private entrance and is also decorated with top line Stickley furniture and a new bed. The main house has a real wood burning masonry fireplace and warm Mexican tile throughout. The entire property has 50mbps high speed wireless internet and full Direct TV on all five flat screen TV's. Also has two car garage. There is also full access to an amazing community pool just a few steps away.

About Mark Callahan

I grew up in Thibodaux, Louisiana. It's a small town not far from New Orleans. I came here to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and never left.

Mark Callahan purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark Callahan chose Scottsdale

In early 2000 I visited and fell in love with the town of Carefree and the Boulders Resort. I purchased this home in 2003 and spent nine years working to make it a tranquil retreat, never intending to rent it out. I poured my heart into this home. I hope you enjoy it!

What makes this house unique

The back yard is a true desert oasis filled with a wide array of true specimen desert plants and the largest Saguaro cactus in the Boulders. You can roast marshmallows on one of the two fire pits or maybe boil some shrimp and enjoy them under the stars.

Perfect relaxing location with a backyard I want to take home

  • 5 of 5

We were here for surgery at Mayo Hospital and this one level, quite and relaxing home was just the place for us. High tech, fast internet allows you to work and, very important, a contact to fix anything or answer any questions. 8 miles from Mayo Hospital but light years from the noise, traffic and hustle of the city but with all the amenities of shopping and grocery nearby. We had 4 guest come out to visit near end of stay and they enjoyed their own bedrooms and bathrooms.

Fabulous home and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Boulders. Mark's home has everything you could ever need there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. High speed internet, televisions in every room and a hot tub in the garden makes this home truly fabulous.

Mark is a great landlord who will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is the best it can be. The photos on the vrbo just don't do the property justice.

There are plenty of walking trails around the Boulders and wildlife everywhere so pack a camera!

Outstanding home in The Boulders

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home... beautifully furnished with an incredible yard. The pictures do not do it justice. The outdoor cooking area even included a 25 gallon sea food boiler so we had a big shrimp boil party. The Casita with its own patio is a very great amenity for having guests. The appliances are over the top including smart TVs!

Our only inconvenience was not getting ATT cell phone service except by going out on the patio. The owner was gracious and gave us a training session on the high end TVs and thermostat. We highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. It's so nice to see others enjoying my home. I called AT&T today about the spotty cell reception and they are sending me a MicroCell to set up in the home which will provide full coverage throughout the property. A landline is also provided if you do not wish to use your cell phone. Respectfully, Mark

AMAZING property in the Boulders

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a one month stay in this home and it far exceeded our expectations. As lovely as the house appears in the pictures, they do not capture the feeling or the ambience of the home. The interior is impeccable and very comfortable. The outside landscape is absolutely stunning to include an outside grilling area, hot tub, and two fire pits. During the month we had 2 separate couples and the detached casita was perfect for our guests. The owner, Mark, was very gracious and attentive to all of our needs. A pet friendly home was crucial for us and Mark could not have been more accommodating by providing a dog bed and bowl for our four legged companion. We were also pleasantly surprised with all the items that Mark provided for us. We will DEFINITELY return and are looking at dates now.

This house offers every amenity you could want. Pictures of unit do not reflect how beautiful this home really is. Home is extremely well maintained and the owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable! The back yard is landscaped beautiful and the outdoor cooking area was used almost every night.

I would highly recommend this property.
