Stunning property with a gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

If you are ever lucky enough to have some time in this property, take it! This home and the owner combined makes for the most special vacation one could ask for. The home is impeccable and set in a very desirable area of growing N Scottsdale. It is rural in feel making it very peaceful and serene. The sunrise in the morning is unforgettable. This home is even better than the photos if at all possible and contains every amenity you could wish for. We will count the days until we can return. Truly, one of the best experiences we have had.

Beautiful, relaxing desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

Treva's place is beautiful and relaxing. She is an excellent host who prepares the house perfectly, is attentive to all concerns and regularly checks in to ensure that we are having an enjoyable stay with no problems. My family has spent two Thanksgivings at Treva's and they have been wonderful. There is a large kitchen perfect for cooking, the pool is beautiful, the putting green makes for fun competition and there is nothing like escaping the cold of the Northeast to enjoy a fireplace by the hot tub outside on a cool desert evening. Comfortable, spacious, beautiful, and the in law suite was perfect for us with our young daughter, as her late night wake ups did not disturb the other members of our family. We enjoyed some terrific hiking in the mountains nearby and the golfers of our group have only good things to say about the local courses. If you are looking for a desert retreat or a golf or hiking get away, stop your search right now and book Treva's place.

Best House We've EVER Rented!

  • 5 of 5

5 Stars isn't enough for this oasis! It's as if we were Royalty...anything and everything we could have wanted or needed was awaiting our arrival. This is where the owner lives when she's not renting and you can tell. I could go on and on about the personal touches! Pick this location and have a magnificent experience and you'll not only leave with great memories but you'll have a great friend in Treva (the owner). You are the best Treva!! Love, Floyd & Stacey

Exceptional property, extraordinarily clean

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home. The home is exceptionally clean, well stocked and Treva, the owner, is helpful and was on top of every detail. We considered staying at the Four Seasons, but this is a much better value and an exceptional property. We would stay here again.

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 we have many times.
