About buck newman

We lived in Scottsdale for 5 years. We enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Arizona has to offer and have partaken in every activity listed in our description. We love to travel and have been all over the world, both separately and together. While traveling we have stayed in some awesome rooms and some that left something to be desired. From our experiences we have set up our condo to make you feel as comfortable and immersed in the Arizona lifestyle as possible. We really hope you enjoy your stay.

Why buck newman chose South Scottsdale

We lived in Scottsdale for 5 years and loved it! There was always something to do. We always had friends and family from out of town coming in to stay with us, so we decided to extend our invitation to stay with us to everyone. It is always sunny in Scottsdale; it's always going to be a nice day.

What makes this condo unique

I love that every morning when you walk outside you can smell the fresh cut grass wafting off of the golf course. If you take a few steps out the door you have miles of greenbelt to walk, run or ride your bike along. You just get that exhilaration of being outdoors.

Great stay in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Quiet unit. Never heard any noise. Master bed was super comfortable. Covered parking. Good value for the expensive location. Only items that prevented a 5 star rating: new shower heads needed. Guest bath tub faucet was very difficult to turn on. Not the owner's fault; but the community pool hot tub did not work the whole week. Also, every day while we were at the pool the grass was being cut, blower noise, and edgers. It was like they were repeating the same work daily.

Nice place minus the Cockroaches problem!

  • 1 of 5

Let me start with the positives.. this place is very nice and in a great area with great amenities. The beds are super comfortable and the apartment is equipped with everything you need outside of your own home. However, HOWEVER! We arrived and found at least 6 big dead Cockroaches (the BIG kind!) all over the apartment and specially in the bedrooms. The problem didn't stop there unfortunately. at least 2-4 cockroaches appeared everyday, some are half dead for the entire 2 weeks stay! This is not something anyone wants to deal with while on vacation. If you rent a hotel room and find such problem, they would move you immediately or credit you to what you have paid at least if you choose to stay. We have already booked this place for two weeks and didn't have time to find another place last minute (again, not something you want to deal with while already on vacation!). We have expressed our concern and disappointment to the owner/managing group and they confirmed that they are aware of the problem and have been trying to deal with it for the past few months! SO why, WHY would you offer a place as a vacation rental when a problem like this still exist?!! At least disclose it as part of the things to expect when staying at this place... the only thing they offered is to credit us back the service fee.. which was nothing of course. When you deal with something like this while on vacation it takes all the enjoyment and peace of mind away.. hence the 1 star!

Owner's Response: This guest requested an early check-in, which was granted at no additional charge, and notified us the following day that they found 5 dead cockroaches in the condo when they arrived. The unit was vacant for a week prior to their arrival, which likely contributed to the increased activity. The guest was advised that a professional exterminator treats the condo every month to create a protective barrier, but the source can be in one of the other units or outside the building entirely, so it is impossible to completely prevent bugs from entering. At this time, the guest appeared to be simply relaying information and was not asking for anything specific in return. On the guest’s 7th day, we received a voicemail advising that they noticed additional bugs and are no longer comfortable staying in the condo. The same day, the guest was advised that they would receive a full refund for the remaining 7 nights of their stay if they needed to find alternate housing. There are many hotels nearby and the rates and availability are very accommodating during the summer months. The guest declined that offer and advised that they did not wish to leave the condo. The following day, I acknowledged they have declined the offer and will be staying in the condo for the duration of their trip. I then offered to refund the service fee for their inconvenience. This secondary offer was presumed to have been declined by the lack of response from the guest as of the time of this writing.

Awesome. One word explains it all.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Bucks condo. Everything was immaculate .

All we needed for cooking was available. Awesome condo.

We were visiting Scottsdale for our grandsons wedding. And we' were very fortunate to find a complex that would accommodate all the wedding guests. All the family and guests gathered at the pool for a welcome barbecue and pool party. Couldn't have asked for a better day.

I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you !
