About Kurt Meyer

I have lived in The Mariposa Home for the past 12 years. I love Arizona and the Mariposa Home and the warm views of Camelback Mountain in the morning or evening. However my kids have grown up and now reside outside Arizona, so I've decided to share my home with travelers who wish to experience Phoenix and Scottsdale while relaxing in a Private Luxury Southwestern Home.

Kurt Meyer purchased this house in 2002

Why Kurt Meyer chose Arcadia

The Mariposa Home is centrally located at the point where Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Paradise Valley meet. You have easy access to restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale or the Biltmore Fashion Park, shopping at Fashion Square Mall, hiking Camelback Mountain, golfing at any of the resort courses, relaxing at any of the many resort spas, visiting museums or heading to a downtown sporting event. This property offers travelers a true classic Southwestern experience in a private luxury home. You can enjoy the private designer swimming pool with water features or relax read a book in front of the fire as you enjoy the piped in music of your choice along with a warm cup of coffee.

What makes this house unique

From the Mariposa Home you can easily make short trips to Sedona, Flagstaff, Tucson, or the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. With a the travel services in Scottsdale and Phoenix you can arrange a desert Jeep tour or white water rafting. You might even want to attend the 2015 Super Bowl!

Perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this home and again it was amazing. I rent the home each year with my two sisters and we gather there with our families. It is such a great home to gather and relax at. The location is beyond perfect. This year we actually had an issue with one heater and one of the hot water heaters when we checked in. I called the owner and he had an hvac contractor there first thing in the morning and came himself to fix the water heater. You could not ask for a better response. We can’t wait for next year. Definitely rent this place - just not at Christmas - it’s ours.

Thank you Mr. Kurt,

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. While we were anticipating a beautiful “rental property”, Your home is clearly a home and it felt like that the minute we arrived. From the décor to the layout to the furnishings to the smallest of touches.

We loved the quiet and peacefulness of the neighborhood, the extremely well kept grounds and the quality of the pool even though we did not swim in it, landscape, etc., etc., etc.

A perfect home for a large group in Arcadia proper

  • 5 of 5

From the booking process to check out, Kurt was wonderful. The homes location is great close to local hotspots and Old Town Scottsdale. We loved the morning walks through the neighborhood and the Phoenician. I hosted my siblings at the place for a family reunion and it was perfect. The home is well stocked and great for a large group. We hope to return in 2018 for a longer stay. Thank you again for opening up your home to us.

This was a great place for a family reunion. Lots of space for everyone when we needed breaks from each other :)

Kurt was a responsive and great host if anything was required. I highly recommend this property and owner.

Party or Relaxing?

  • 1 of 5

So, the positive feedback.

Kurt, the property manager/owner is very responsive.

If you need 3-4 bedrooms, a pool, guesthouse, large yard to play in and a close location to downtown Scottsdale, then rent this home.

If you tend to be more picky and just want to relax at the home, then, I would pause.

This house is for sale and the house doesn't appear to be maintained.

The outdoor kitchen isn't usable. The refrigerator was filled with mold.

Screen doors are broken, cob webs & black widow spiders a plenty and just overall, the house is dirty.

The master bedroom bedspread was stained. Sheets seemed to be clean.

We arrived and the pool was filthy. We called Kurt, he responded right away, and promised that someone would come out and handle all the palm tree droppings, etc., but no one ever showed up...we were there for 4 days. So, part of our daily ritual, cleaning the pool, at least an hour every day. A bummer since we absolutely wanted to hang in the pool.

There are lots of things that just don't work, TV's in most of the rooms, screen doors are broken, lighting, one of the ovens, electronic gate only works on one side.

This is probably a great place for a bachelor party or a spring training just want to sleep, and easy access to downtown. For a family that wants to hang there and relax...not so much.
