This was the jewel of the villas previously rented by Millennium Resort at much higher rates than we now charge. It is new on VRBO. The sister property next door is 5 star, as we are confident this will be. You'll be close to everything Scottsdale, but you won't want to leave, and won't have to. You are on Scottsdale road, but the only sounds you hear are of the birds. It's a birdwatcher paradise. There are great bike and walking trails. Once you stay here, you will not want to stay anywhere else in the Phoenix area. We have lots of repeaters.
Mary is a retired gifted-school founder/administrator. Mark is a 'semi-retired' emergency physician. We are both enthusiastic bridge players. Mark's favorite activity in Scottsdale is biking; Mary's is relaxing on the patio.
Mark Olsky purchased this villa in 2013
We've been owners at 'The Shores' for 17 years. When our friends, the McDonalds, next door to our #31, put it on the market a year ago, we snapped it up. Now, when we are in Arizona, bunches of friends and family can come and enjoy both places.
It's perfect for people who are very active as well as those with mobility problems. There's good public transportation , but a car is recommended for access to all that the area has to offer. Did we mention this place is relaxing? There's a meditation open-air atrium within the villa.
Do your own cooking or laundry within or get it done for you nearby.
Great property, lots of space. Spent almost every waking moment on the awesome patio. Mark was exceptionally accommodating. Will absolutely book again.
We rented this home with cousins who live on the opposite side of the country. It was perfect for a weekend of visiting with family we are rarely able to see. There are many large, comfortable, attractive spaces for relaxed conversation on the patio, the living room/dining room and a family room. The living room/dining room is airy with comfortable furniture and big windows that look out onto a man-made lake that is just outside the patio. The early risers in our group were treated to gorgeous sunrises each morning through those windows. The pictures posted on VRBO are accurate. Although it is actually nicer in person.
The kitchen is stocked with everything we needed to make meals for our group to enjoy. The owners even had the coffee pot ready to brew when we arrived. Everything was very clean.
The bedrooms are spacious, attractively decorated and everyone had comfortable beds. There are three, clean bathrooms, each with a shower. The master bath has a large tub. There were plenty of towels.
We did not use the washer and dryer. But they looked new and the owners provided some laundry detergent.
The home is entirely on one floor. The location is very convenient with many restaurants and stores close by. The address is right on a major street. But the actual home is set far enough off of the road that there is no street noise. I only heard the ducks and geese from the pond. Some get up early to talk to each other.
The owners were very quick with responses when I emailed questions.
The place was perfect for Super Bowl weekend. Well equipped with everything we needed and responsive ownership. Would definitely rent here again.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West is nearby;
Sedona and Superstition Mountains are an easy same day excursion. The Grand Canyon is a long 1 day excursion, nice for 2 days. Golf, excellent restaurants, scenic walks and bike paths are right there. Best activity: Read a book on the patio at sunset and watch the wildlife and sunset colors over the mountains. Bring your best camera!
You are 20 minutes drive from Phoenix airport, 15 minutes from Scottsdale airport, but feels like 100 miles from civilization.
