Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

This is, hands down, the best VRBO property we have ever stayed at. From the welcoming and attentive owner to the impeccable condition of the home and grounds, I am hard-pressed to come up with any negatives. The home has 4 master suites with King-sized beds. Wonderful kitchen, pool, hot tub, fire-pit, and views. Very nice outdoor grill area if you decide to grab some steaks and dine around the pool. If you can find a better place, stay there but once you stay here you will be coming back....as we have many times.

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful home for nearly a week. The home was impeccably clean and has significant quality amenities. Everything was clean and well stocked. It was easy to cook in the home as it was well supplied with utensils, spices and many of the basics. Wonderful views and very quiet. We stayed here rather than a hotel and I can attest the service, amenities and space are much better than I have experienced at the Four Seasons. You cannot go wrong by staying here. We will return here on our next trip to the area.

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best VRBO property ever! This home and property are simply lovely. It is exceptionally clean, well maintained, and state of the art. The owner is one of the most gracious women I have ever met. She was welcoming, warm and extremely inviting. We had a great week relaxing, cooking, swimming and enjoying the property. Did not even want to leave. If you are considering this property, stop, just do it, you won't regret it!

GMR in northeast Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

2017, was our third year in a row at this outstanding VRBO property. Unparalleled in our experience with numerous other VRBO rentals. The home and grounds are beautiful and create an environment which is simply one of casual luxury. The owner is exemplary in making you feel welcome and has the home completely stocked to enhance one's stay. Our family now looks upon our time there as an annual respite to reconnect, relax and savor life.

Outstanding property and exceptional Owner

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this property this year because it is by far one of the best VRBO experiences we have ever had. The owner is like no other. She is extremely warm and inviting. Easy to work with through the booking process and responsive to all requests. Her home is amazing... very clean and well stocked. She has thought of everything! Forgot your toothbrush? She has you covered! We already booked our stay for next year. Highly recommend this property!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all of the amenities you could ever need! The owner met us with warm appetizers, chilled wine and such a wonderful personality we all wanted her to stay with us!! Anything we needed she was quick to respond to! Everything in this home was top notch-from the beds/bedding to the smallest thing like the body wash that was conveniently waiting in the showers! Nothing was overlooked!
