About Richard Moore

We have come to Scottsdale annually for many years and finally decided it was time to buy a desert retreat. We live in California, but Scottsdale is dear to us.

Richard Moore purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Moore chose South Scottsdale

We love Old Town Scottsdale. There is so much to do and you can literally walk everywhere. The Maya is in a perfect location for us. We spent nearly 6 months renovating our condo to be the perfect desert retreat.

What makes this condo unique

We love that we can sit on the balcony and view the refreshing pool. We also love the fact that the condo is filled with art that screams Scottsdale.

Comfortable and Convenient Condo

  • 5 of 5

We picked this condo because of location and were not disappointed. We were very pleased with the beautiful decor and comfort of the property. The condo was spacious as was the balcony overlooking the pool. The kitchen and baths had been updated with tile and granite to give a modern feel. The wall art featuring Chihuly glass in the Desert Botanical Garden gave a local feeling.

Wonderful Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

The Desert Retreat was exactly what our family needed. Scottsdale has entertainment for all ages and the Desert Retreat is centrally located! What made the Desert Retreat extra special was the care Rick offered us while we were there. We cannot say enough about our time there. Highly recommended.

Scottsdale Condo

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for me. Great master with TV and two nice bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen and well equipped cleaning supplies, etc. The owners were very nice to work with. Balcony over pool. Very close to Old town and all the amenities.

one warning: If you don't like heights this may not be for you. Front Balcony rail is very low and it's on the 4th floor.

A perfect desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

What enticed us to book this condo was the King sized Sleep Number bed and 2 recliner chairs in the living room. We enjoyed 3 months in this lovely condo. The furniture was attractive and comfortable, the dishes and bedding more than adequate, there was abundant storage, and it was easy to maintain. Loved the over-sized dust mop..perfect for the tile floors through-out the condo.

It is located near shopping, an excellent barbershop, restaurants, and many tourist attraction, including the scenery with the amazing Saguaro cactus. The overall Maya facility is attractive and quiet. We enjoyed the view of the pool, the sunrises and sunsets. The weather was cool in December, but comfortable. We really liked February's temperatures of 80 degrees. The condo could be kept cool by regulating which doors to leave open in the morning and afternoon.

Having just returned to our rainy Pacific Northwest, what I miss the most are the birds: The "coo-coo" of the pigeons, the "coocoo-coo" of the doves, the sharp sound of the grackles, and the fantastic Mockingbird with it's extensive variations of songs.

We are looking forward to our next winter retreat in the desert!
