About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath 2,800 Sf Home With Pool, Spa & Large Yard With Grass.

Our home is situated in North Phoenix/Scottsdale. The area is beautiful and so conveniently located.

We lived in this home for ten years. We are two Midwesterners who found ourselves planted in the desert in 2004. We were drawn to this house for its large grassy green area in the backyard, its spacious family living area and the great neighborhood.

Not many homes boast a backyard like this one. The grassy area of our back lawn is big enough to host a pick-up game of baseball or soccer. The pool has a basketball hoop; both adults and kids will enjoy many games of horse while enjoying the pool. The yard is surrounded by beautiful desert flowers: lantana and beougenvilla; as well as a rising orange tree and a couple of palms. You will feel at home sitting and relaxing in this idyllic setting. In addition, there is a hot tub, barbecue and large flat screen TV outside . The hot tub is so nice to enjoy under the stars at night. And with our weather, you can really grill out every night. We loved grilling burgers on Sunday afternoons and watching NFL games outside while the kids played in the yard.

The inside of our house is two-levels. On the main level, we have a room with a pool table right off the entryway. There is a play or lounge room perfect for playing a game with others, having a glass of wine and enjoying some nice conversation or snuggling up with a book. From here, you can travel into the great room where you will find a beautiful and spacious kitchen, large dining area and family room. Our family spent much of our time in this area: preparing meals, eating, entertaining, watching games and movies, playing games etc… It is an open and inviting area. We have a large sectional couch here and a comfortable recliner. Plenty of places for people to get cozy and relax. The dining table seats and eight and the island seats four. The kitchen has a wine bar complete with a wine refrigerator. Cheers! The other areas on the main floor are the powder room, laundry room, and master suite. You will love our master suite - I still miss our bathroom! The bathroom has a large shower with two shower heads and a beautiful tub to soak in! The bedroom is large with a king-size bed (Heavenly Bed mattress) and two walk-in closets. The room is large enough to use a queen or king-size air mattress as well. Please inquire if you would like one. Finally, the master bathroom has a door leading out to the patio and pool area; this is very convenient when swimming or enjoying the hot tub.

Moving upstairs, you will find three more bedrooms and a full bathroom with a tub and shower. Two of the rooms have queen-size beds (both are Heavenly Beds) and flat screen televisions. One bedroom has two XL twin beds; these can be converted to a king-size bed. All of these bedrooms are clean, neutral and relaxing areas. You will find plenty of room to stow your belongings and enjoy your space. The full bathroom was just renovated this year. It has a gorgeous tiled shower and tub, two sinks and a light and airy feel.

I cannot say enough of about this area of town. Literally, you can find whatever you are looking for within 5-10 miles: golf courses, restaurants, shopping, spas, parks, movies, kids’ activities, dining, hiking, running, yoga etc…!

As Midwesteners, our lives have changed drastically since moving to Arizona. I have become a person who craves the outdoors, because I can be outdoors everyday! We are really enjoying life each and every day here in Arizona because of its amazing weather and beautiful surroundings. Not to mention all the wonderful recreational opportunities: hiking, spring training games, year-round swimming, golf tournaments, horse shows, cars shows, amazing cuisine and much more! I am sure you will enjoy spending time in this special place of our country! We hope you enjoy kicking back and enjoying your friends and family at Casa de Kierland! We look forward to hearing from you!

Best Vacation Rental Experience I've Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Kierland was truly the best vacation rental experience we've ever had. The home is true to the pictures, if not better (ex: there are 4 loungers by the pool, an outdoor dining table, and much more than what is pictured). The home was exceptionally clean. The owners were extremely accommodating and responsive. Maybe the best part of the home was how well suited it is for a family with children. It is loaded with toys, apparatuses, and safety measures to help if you are traveling with children. Our minds were at ease all trip and we didn't have to waste money on new toys to keep the kids occupied. The child-related items are also tastefully stored away so the home is great for those not traveling with kids as well.

This is a place you can book with confidence!

Thank you Joe and Erin for all your hospitality, this was a vacation we won't soon forget.

Great place for family fun

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa De Kierland. First and foremost, the home is laid out great-- It has an open floor plan and the large island in the kitchen makes it a great gathering place for family and entertaining. The pool and hot tub are wonderful as well--great for kids and adults alike! The neighborhood is quiet and in a great location close to shops and other needed conveniences. Overall a great experience. We would definitely stay here again!

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning and an Entertainer's Delight. I was in town to celebrate an engagement and an early Thanksgiving. I had everything I needed to prepare and serve dinner for my family. They have thought of everything, and I mean everything! The open floor plan and outdoor spaces just make it that much more special. House is super clean and I was truly impressed. Thank you for opening your home to me. I have rented many properties from VRBO, this is definitely one of my favorites.

Great house, perfect for two families with small kids

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The location, house size and backyard were great. The owners installed a safety fence around the pool which gave us peace of mind with our children. The house is fully stocked and has everything you need. We loved the pool, although for small kids to fully enjoy it I think it would have to be warmer than 84 degrees at this time of year. We’ve rented other homes and have heated the pool to 87 degrees which is warm enough for morning and evening swimming. The backyard is private and huge. Outdoor tv was great for watching football while BBQ’ing. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely be back. Thanks Erin and Joe.

The pictures provided on VRBO are exactly the way the house looks when you walk in! It is CLEAN, amenities are superb (more than you get in most other properties), quiet neighborhood, and close to restaurants, shopping, etc. This is truly a 5-star property!

Kierland Commons & Scottsdale Quarter
Car: recommended

We love this neighborhood and area of Scottsdale. We spent ten years raising our young children in this special house!

It is a quiet, clean neighborhood within walking distance of two wonderful parks: Desert Horizon and Jackrabbit. Just 1.5 miles away are grocery stores (Safeway and Fry's), a fantastic sports bar (Zipp's), local pizza joint (Humble Pie) and amazing breakfast (Perk or Einstein's Bagels) and lunch spots.

Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter are a five-minute drive from this house; these are fabulous shopping & dining areas. You can spend hours here walking around the shops, stopping for a drink or appetizer and finally sitting down to a top-notch dinner. We love these spots and spend many of our date nights at North, Green House, Mastro's Ocean Club, Sting Ray Sushi or True Food - they never get old or disappoint!

Just one mile up the road off of 56th Street, you can enter a Phoenix Trail and feel like your are miles out of the city. This trail is called Reach 11 and I spend many mornings running or walking here. It is a quiet and beautiful desert trail. Again, I never tire of this trail and the beauty of it. In addition to this trail, there are many wonderful hiking trails in the McDowell Mountain Preserve and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Again, these trail areas are just a 10-minute drive from the house.

There are beautiful golf courses within a 20-minute drive all around our area. Come & enjoy the Waste Management Golf Tournament at TPC. There is no lack of quality golf experiences in Scottsdale and Phoenix! Golfers will enjoy amazing weather and beautiful greens!

Finally, there is tons of stuff for kids to do here in Scottsdale and Phoenix! We can enjoy the outdoors so much of the year! Kids can play at the parks, hike desert trails and swim. Kids will love Cracker Jax for their mini golf, go carts, bumper boats and other fun games. We also have a trampoline place right around the corner called AZ Air Time. Check out the splash pads at Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarter and Desert Ridge.

Oh - one more thing: our spas are out of this world! Treat yourself to a massage or facial while you are here! You deserve it!
