About Janey D.

My husband & I bought this condo from my husband's mother. She & his dad were the first owners in this complex in 1983. Hence, they got the best unit with the best views!!

I'm from Tucson and graduated from the University of Arizona. We both LOVE Arizona, and all that it has to offer!

We currently live in California, but hope to eventually divide our time equally between here and the condo.

Janey D. purchased this condo in 2011

Why Janey D. chose South Scottsdale

We love to hike, love the outdoors, and love the shopping in Phoenix!! I have family in Arizona. In California we live in a small town; when we go to the condo, we love to partake of the wonderful culture (the Phoenix Symphony, Ballet Arizona, all the museums, Taliesan West (Frank Lloyd Wright's home & school), and all the things a huge metropolitan area has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

We loved visiting the condo when my husband's parents owned it, but now that we've made it our own, we feel totally comfortable there. When we get there, it's like coming home.

Believe me when I say, when it's time to leave our beautiful condo, I go kicking & screaming all the way! I feel certain you'll feel the same!!!

Cozy Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for 1 week and it was just perfect for us. As Canadians experiencing the desert environment for the very first time (and without a car) we wanted a suitable place close to Old Town. This property certainly fit the bill as we were able to walk to a lot of places or take the free trolley which stopped right in front of the building. Also, loved the clean & well maintained! The property itself was fully equipped and so comfortable. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return one day.

Cozy condo ...good location in Scottsdale

  • 4 of 5

A bit over-furnished. Many antiques to be careful of. Medicine cabinets full upon arrival leaving no space for our toiletries. Kitchen had an abundance of supplies and dishes but was not organized. Comfortable beds and a wonderful washer and dryer. Nice view of Camelback Mountain from small patio. Strange combination of tv channels received on each of the 3 TV's...none the same. Not the standard basic cable channel line ESPN. Walking distance or trolley ride to Scottsdale Stadium, Old Town, Art District and Fashion Square Mall. We went for spring training baseball and, overall, this condo worked out fine.

Wonderful month

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what I need for a home away from home. Easy to get around to Old Town and all the sites I wanted to see. Other people in the condos were friendly but not intrusive. I loved the heated pool and hot tub and the nearby library which has memberships for travelers. I was there a month. During that time, my sister and a friend came for short visits and my husband came for over a week and each one said they had a wonderful time. I am looking forward to next years longer stay😀!

All we wanted in a vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home as soon as we arrived.

Our stay was for 3 weeks. Our daughter, who lived 3 miles from us was having her 5th child and we were there to come along side her for the birth. This meant fixing a few meals. We found our place was so equipped we could fix the meals there and take the food over vs. fixing them at her place. Or, you can go to one of the many restaurants in the area.

We needed a break from time to time. And we found we were close to the walk way (can't remember the name). This ran for miles. Great for long walks, 5+ miles and a great place for a bike, which are provided. Be sure and bring your helmets. If you want to hike on one of the many trails, you will find information at your finger tips or you can always use the Internet throug the provided wifi.

If you are inclined to eat in, grocery stores are at your finger tips and once again, the kitchen has everything you may need.

If your stay means doing the laundry, no fear, great machines are in the condo. Oh!, don't worry about detergent, it is in the hall closet.

I could go on and on, but I hope you get the picture, this is the place for you.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I came to Arizona for spring training. I found this place on VRBO and I was delighted with location and all it offered. As my first experience with VRBO I was a little apprehensive. However, I was not disappointed. Both the owner and the person who met us were very helpful. The place was clean and well equipped. The location was perfect for access to everything we could possibly want. The location was quiet. The pool was perfect. I would definitely stay here again should my travels birng me back.

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I have been traveling for three months, staying at VRBO sites across the west. By far this Scottsdale condo has been the most convenient and well appointed lodging for us. First, it is within three blocks of the library and Old Town Scottsdale galleries. Second, is it very well managed, with both the owners and their on site manager checking in with us on a periodic basis and offering service above and beyond normal needs. Thirdly, the place is furnished and accessorized to a greater extent than a three star hotel. There is sufficient linens, dinnerware and cookware to host a dinner for a dozen. The oven and laundry facilities appear brand new.

It was a very comfortable stay and we would recommend the lodging to any couple planning a long stay in the area.
