Perfect Corporate Relocation, medical stay ( Minutes away from Mayo and Envita) or Scottsdale vacation home! If you want to be close to the TPC, Kierland, Barret Jackson, West World, Golf, Hiking, Biking... This is your place! Purchased in 2012. I have since done all of the following to make it as nice, modern, and luxurious as possible: New hardwood flooring, new granite counter tops were just installed prior to purchase, all new top of the line appliances, Mirabell 2 persona jacuzzi tub in one bath, and the other with all new tile and Italian marble, new Carrera marble vanity tops, solar film on the windows, custom window treatments, etc etc. It has a covered 2 car garage with epoxy coating. The condo is located in a very nice, gated community that is so conveniently located. It is walking distance to 2 restaurants, Bashes grocery, Posh hair salon, nail salon, dry cleaners, and pharmacy. It is only minutes away to Kierland, West World, and Market place at DC ranch. It is easy access to the 101 so you can get anywhere within a 10 mile radius in just minutes.

About Ann Bond

I was living in Aspen, Colorado, and staying in Scottsdale for the off season for years. I have a rental property in downtown Aspen that I have been renting it out on VRBO for several years receiving over 35 5 star reviews, and love the interaction with guests and want their experience to be first class. This is a second home that I completely remodeled. I have since moved and kept this elegant condominium as a VRBO vacation property. Since this unit was my personal home, it is filled with the top of the line upscale finishes and furnishings. I am so happy to host others here in this wonderful vacation rental during their time in Scottsdale

Ann Bond purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ann Bond chose Scottsdale

It is immaculately CLEAN, VERY MODERN AND UPSCALE AND VERY CONVENIENT! I completely remodeled this property. When I purchased the unit I installed all new top of the line appliances, custom wood floors, Italian marble in both bathrooms, Carerra marble vanity tops, all new Moen plumbing fixtures and have chosen nice upscale furnishings from Restoration Hardware, as well as custom window treatments throughout, a 2 car epoxy coated garage, new Air Conditioner and hot water heater. The kitchen is completely stocked for any length of stay. It is also great for hosting intimate dinners, as it is stocked with china dishes, and elegant glass and stem ware. The outdoor decks make it nice to enjoy a peaceful evening with partial mountain views and city lights at night

What makes this condo unique

This property is unique because of its location and convenience to 101. It is an 8 min drive to Kierland, located a few minutes away from McDowell Mtn. golf course, and 5 minutes or less to Grayhawk. It is alos very convenient to the Mayo clinic, and it is stocked with special glass ware and storage containers, to suit those guests staying here for medical purposes.

5 stars are not enough!!

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed condo looks even better in person than it does in the (very nice) photos! It's chic, trendy, and cosmopolitan. The high-end finishes complement the stylish touches throughout.

Our accommodating host Ann Bond was only a text message away during our stay in case of questions.

A full-service market (Bashas') is only a stroll away, along with a terrific sushi restaurant/bar. I had the pool to myself every day for an early swim - so refreshing. Great location at the corner of Bell and Thompson Peak Parkway - close to hiking, yet quick access to 101. Book it now; you won't regret.

Exceptional Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo is stylish and high end in every way. Luxurious linens, high quality furniture, crate and barrel dishes, restoration hardware lighting etc. Everything in the condo is top notch. The owner and property manager were easy to communicate with. Any little issue was resolved quickly. Both are accessible by text. Property manager lives on-site and usually came by within minutes of requesting anything. I found the drapes too sheer in one of the bedrooms and asked if they had any room darkening drapes. The owner ordered new drapes from West Elm immediately and they were installed within days. We originally booked for a month and ended up staying for 3 months. Walking next door to Bashas was extremely convenient. I have very high standards and I was impressed! Excellent condo rental!

Contemporary condo, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

This McDowell Mountain condo is as comfortable and contemporary as it looks in photos. Ann is a thoughtful owner who hasn't overlooked any detail, providing everything that made our stay easy, fun and enjoyable. The kitchen is fully outfitted (even champaign glasses and fresh ground coffee). Furnishing are modern and welcoming. The grounds are well maintained. It's convenient to hiking, golf courses, a Trader Joe's, and upscale shopping and great restaurants at Kierland Commons. If you love barbeque, the quirky Tom's Thumb car wash is three minutes down the street. Plus the shopping center next door has a full-service grocery. Ann was quick to respond to questions prior to our stay and provided a thorough orientation. This two-bedroom north Scottsdale condo worked great for our extended stay.

Absolutely the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is stunning and immaculate. The furnishings and fixtures are of the highest quality and the location can't be beat for convenience. Hiking, biking, pool, workout room, stores, resturants, and views of the mountains are right outside the door. This property is managed by the owner and Ann is (as we say in Texas), a real sweetheart who thinks of everything to make your stay as pleasant as a posh hotel. We are looking forward to our next stay here.

Feels like the Ritz or Four Seasons...

  • 5 of 5

First, what an incredibly helpful owner! Ann patiently answered all my questions not just about the condo, but about the area as well. She had wonderful suggestions for activities and restuarants. The condo is conveniently located in a very quiet area that is just two minutes from the 101. There is a small shopping center with a grocery store, UPS store and dry cleaner close by. The condo itself has luxurious finishings that you would expect in a five star resort. No detail is spared. Ann even provides robes and slippers! There is a high-end air bed should you have guests. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, dishes, glassware and cookware. There is a full size washer and dryer in the unit for your use. The Gateway trailhead is just a couple of minutes North. It has many levels of trails to challenge both novice and experienced hikers. My expectations were exceeded! You are guaranteed to enjoy your stay.
