About Warren&Brigitta Baker

We are a semi-retired couple from Saskatoon,Saskatchewan (above North Dakota)Canada-We have three daughters and four grandchildren.We love to travel but our condo in Arizona is a great winter retreat.

Warren&Brigitta Baker purchased this condo in 2010

Why Warren&Brigitta Baker chose Scottsdale

Scottsdale is the only municipality in Greater Phoenix that is allowed to water all year round.This results in beautiful lush green parks,golf courses,bike trails and hiking paths. Being centrally located the Monaco is close to all the shopping malls,restaurants,golf courses etc.

What makes this condo unique

We probably spend 80 % of our time on our patio and/or at the pool- which is only a few steps away.We are really lucky to get the morning sun and we are really lucky to have afternoon shade before it gets too hot.The abundance of palm trees gives you the feeling that you are at a resort-minus the ocean-but the pool is kept at 85 F during the winter months so this more than makes up for it.

Delightful condo

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice for our first trip to AZ. The condo was the best equipped and supplied unit we've ever rented; clean; and very nicely furnished with everything we needed. The owners kindly left us with a welcome basket of goodies. The large patio was beautiful. The location was pretty central to our extensive tourist activities. The weather in November was very pleasant. We only met a handful of neighbors since it was the off season. My husband used the hot tub and pool (which were only a few feet away) a few times. The business center was very close by. We were sightseeing daily or probably would have enjoyed the lovely patio and pool more often. It didn't take us long to find our way around. We were very happy about choosing this property.

Restaurants we recommend: Mexican--Tia Shorty's; Italian--Uncle Sal's; American--the Olive & Ivy; healthy--Zuppas at Desert Ridge Marketplace.

Among the many places we visited, my favorites were the Grand Canyon; Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona; Verde Canyon Railroad in Clarkdale; Taliesin West; the fantastic Musical Instrument Museum (we spent 2 days there); the OdySea Aquarium; Desert Botanical Garden; and Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park.

Note: A small map would be helpful in finding the condo. Our GPS sent us in the wrong direction. When we found it, we marked the parking lot entrance on the GPS. Also, it would be a little improvement if the condo had an on-demand water heater near the bath & kitchen sink. I felt guilty letting the water run and run until the hot water arrived at our end of the building.

Tastefully appointed condo, large patio surrounded with lush greenery. Very well equipped. Superb!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented apartments and condos before. This has been an outstanding experience. Warren, the owner, is very easy to work with and quickly responsive to queries.

Everything looked fresh, clean and new. So many thoughtful touches...like a cart to carry in groceries from the parking lot, a notebook with tips about local grocery stores and favorite restaurants, a dozen or more mystery books, instructions for use of appliances. The kitchen is very well equipped, newer pots and pans than my own. The bedrooms are comfortable with more than adequate closet and storage space. Plenty of cleaning supplies for extended stays.

The location could not have been better. Centrally located in Scottsdale, but in a quiet, safe neighborhood. I didn't try the pool or hot tub, but others did and enjoyed them. I used the workout room and never had to wait for a machine.

Would I recommend this place to others? Unconditionally!

January 1 thru 31, 2016 Stay

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time in Warren's condo. It is well stocked and comfortable. We had a littke trouble finding the unit on our first day because my GPS gave wrong directions, but a call to Warren pointed the correct way. The location is ideal for getting around Scottsdale. My only negative comment is: I don't know "Cindi S." who has indicated she stayed in Warren's unit in January 2016!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. With regards to the time period of Cindy"s review, we contacted VRBO and they informed us that when she put in her dates she inadvertently used January 31st instead of February 1st as her arrival date.VRBO has advised us that they are not able to change her "January" review date to February.Please contact VRBO directly if you have any more questions or concerns

Beautiful condo with beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

Warren and Brigitta thought of just about everything a renter could hope for. All the kitchen appliances and utensils you would ever need, as well as a large rack of spices and some coffee. The sofa and love seat were quite comfortable, as well as the beds. The place was also tastefully decorated. The towels were over-sized and soft, they even had beach towels for the pool. We used the BBQ just on the other side of the patio wall, and it worked great! We loved the large patio and the very comfortable patio sofa and chairs. They were also flexible on the check out time for us since we had an afternoon flight, which I thought was very nice of them. We would definitely stay again in the future.

My wife and I hit a home run when renting this condo. We totally enjoyed our stay! It was perfect ! We found the condo to be very clean well decorated, nicely furnished and surrounded by a beautifully landscaped common area grounds that was quiet during the day and peaceful at night. It's a 1st floor unit with a spacious patio that has direct access to a beautiful heated pool and hot tub. Conveniently located In the northern portion of Scottsdale offering easy access to the many great restaurants and attraction. Highly Recommended! We will return again and again!

Excellent location close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed 2 weeks in this well decorated condo with nice patio overlooking pool area. There was nothing missing! The kitchen had everything necessary and well organized, as were all the rooms. The 2 bathrooms had good quality white towels and the bedrooms had mattresses and pillows of good quality and very comfortable. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners. Our emails were answered quickly.
