About Erik Carpenter

My wife and I are a transnational couple (American & Canadian). Work has taken us to Los Angeles, however, we consistently travel back to AZ, where I grew up, for a relaxing break to visit family and enjoy everything Phoenix and Arizona has to offer.

Erik Carpenter purchased this house in 2012

Why Erik Carpenter chose Desert Ridge

We chose this property for two reasons: the location and the backyard! The Desert Ridge area is the perfect place to be located in order to experience everything Phoenix and Scottsdale have to offer. After a busy day around town, there is nothing better than coming home to BBQ in the backyard while swimming in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub.

What makes this house unique

The home has a simplistic style and layout which is comforting and relaxing. It is the perfect size home with an amazing backyard for entertaining and gathering with friends and family.

Comfort of home in a resort setting

  • 5 of 5

Attention to detail was second to none. Our family had everything we could have asked for or thought of. The pool and hot tub made for a relaxing time while we were in Phoenix for a family wedding. Beds, pillows, linens and living room furniture were all comfy and cozy.

Parking in a garage and driveway in a safe a quiet neighborhood gave us a nice sense of security. We were within a 1/4 mike of Desert Ridge Marketplace which has grocery, retail, liquor, nail and hair salons and just about any kind of restaurant you would need. Only 1/2 mile from the 101 Loop with efficient access to any location in the area.

We would love to return to Casa de Abraham on our future visits to the Phoenix area.

Casa de Abraham is in a great location, with lots of restaurants and lounges within walking distance. Home was very clean and has everything you need. Very quiet neighbourhood overall and felt safe. The pool was amazing and hot tub was great too. Erik is excellent to deal with and I look forward to returning annually. The app is very useful too...

Comfy, convenient and clean!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable home for our week of business in Phoenix. The pool was especially appreciated as it was a very hot week - we "dipped" in the a.m. and the p.m. most days. Kitchen is well stocked and very large and up to date. SOOOO close to the shopping center as well - with an Albertson's supermarket less than a quarter mile from us. Very enjoyable!

This house could possibly be the most conveniently located house in all of Phoenix!

Case de Abraham is within walking distance to Desert Ridge Marketplace, Arizona's premiere shopping and entertainment destination with over 110 retailers and restaurants. With a high energy, outdoor setting, The Marketplace has everything you need from shopping to movie theaters to outdoor fireplaces and even a splash pad for the kids on the hot summer days.

Just down the street from Desert Ridge is a high end retail area with more shopping and restaurants called City North.

Less than a mile away is the junction between the Loop 101 Freeway and AZ-51, the main arteries to all of Phoenix and Scottsdale's must see destinations.

Just 10 minutes or less to the east is the TPC of Scottsdale (home of the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament), the Barrett Jackson Car Auction, WestWorld Equestrian Center, the Mayo Clinic, the Scottsdale Airport, and numerous golf courses. A little further into the heart of Scottsdale takes you to the Talking Stick Resort & Casino (featuring the brand new Odysea Aquarium, Buttterfly Exhibit, and Topgolf!), Salt River Fields (home to the Arizona Diamondbacks & Colorado Rockies Spring Training), and Old Town Scottsdale.

Heading west on the 101 will take you to University of Phoenix Stadium (home of the Cardinals, two Super Bowls, the Fiesta Bowl, and the 2017 Final Four), Glendale Arena (home to the Arizona Coyotes Hockey team & many concerts), Water World water park, countless other Spring Training venues, and even more spectacular golf courses around Phoenix.

Heading north up Tatum Blvd. will take you to the quaint towns of Cave Creek & Carefree, both popular tourist destinations with terrific art scenes as well as delicious restaurants and western style watering holes.

Twenty minutes south on the 51 heads into downtown Phoenix, home of Chase Field and the Arizona Diamondbacks, the US Airways Center which houses the Phoenix Suns and several large music concerts each year, and the Arizona Science Center. Also downtown is Sky Harbor International Airport, one of the easiest, most convenient airports in the country. Other attractions in Phoenix include the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Gardens, hiking at Piestawa Peak and Camelback Mountain, and even more fabulous golf courses spread throughout the city.

For the day trippers out there, Lake Pleasant and Bartlett Lake are both only 45 minutes away, and offer plenty of water and fishing fun. Sedona, home to the red rocks, Slide Rock State Park, and Oak Creek Canyon is only a 2 hour drive north. Fifteen minutes past that is Flagstaff, home to all of your outdoor alpine adventures.
