Why Carien chose South Scottsdale

Location, location, location! Less than two miles from Old Town Scottsdale, but in a very quiet neighborhood, its location can't be beat. It is nearly adjacent to the Indian Bend Wash, where you can bike ride along golf courses and through parks, or just go for a nice stroll... It stretches for miles north and south of my place... And if you need to go anywhere in the Valley, you're only a few minutes off the Loop 101

Great house - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We we're in Phoenix for the month of August for our granddaughter's first birthday. We stayed in this house the entire time and found it to be perfect for our needs. It is comfortable, well appointed and the location is close to everything that we needed and wanted. The back yard and pool area was an oasis where breakfast and late-night drinks were enjoyed. Carien was a delight to work with and very gracious and helpful. We enjoyed the house so much that we reserved it for another extended stay!

Fantastic property, amazing owner!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Carien,

Just wanted to thank you for an amazing holiday at your property in April! The house was perfect and the backyard is like a resort! Close to the walking and biking trails and just around the corner from Old Scottsdale. We had a great trip and hope to come back soon! Highly recommend your place to anyone visiting the area.

And a big thank you for mailing us our camera that we left behind, greatly appreciated with service going above and beyond!

The Holmes Family,

Owner's Response: Aww, thanks so much! Was just glad I was "on location" so that I could mail it to you :) Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, the backyard, and the location of the house... Hopefully you guys will take the plunge and we can become neighbours! Let me know if I can assist with accommodations in the future, and referrals are always welcome! Thanks again for your gracious review :)

Great Accommodations and Location !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a month at this great house. It exceeded our expectations. The house had everything we needed and we felt at home. Plenty of room, loved the back yard. The location was convenient to stores and Old Scottsdale for eating out. Owner was always available for any questions we had. Easy directions to follow for our arrival, stay and departure. Would definitely recommend. Only wish that the weather was warmer to use the pool.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review! Glad the house suited your needs so well :) The location is what motivated me to chose this property over others... the green belt and Old Town being right there is really convenient. And, if you want to try out the pool, please come back at the end of summer! It is lovely at that time of year and I would love to have you back ;-)

Great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our week at this charming home. The location was perfect for walking in the nearby park and to Old Town Scottsdale. We also enjoyed the well kept single speed bikes and spent several hours biking the park and canal. This is by far the best equipped kitchen we have experienced in all of our VRBO rentals. Appreciated the quality of the linens and towels. Best of all was the outdoor space. Lots of comfortable lounging and beautiful landscape. Would love to spend another week at this property again.

Owner's Response: Sounds like you really enjoyed your stay! So glad to hear :) I too, love getting out to the park, whether by bike or on foot! The green belt is what sold me on the location, plus, of course, it's proximity to Old Town... and it sounds like that's what's important to you! Glad you found the house well-stocked too! I try to replenish as needed, and it sure helps when guests take good care of the house too. Love hearing from you! Hope to have you again in the near future :)

lovely property with great location and owner

  • 5 of 5

Home worked perfectly for our family. Location was great, house was as pictured and very comfortable for 4. Was nicely stocked with necessities and some "staples" for cooking and eating and even for laundry. Yard was beautiful (watch out for cactus by driveway?!) We enjoyed the pool and were thankful it was not heated!! All instructions were clear and booklet with written information left in the home was helpful and thorough. Recommendations for restaurants was dead on. The Breakfast Club had amazing food. We enjoyed the bikes and used the bike trail that was described in the listing (basket was in rough shape and needs to be replaced). Last, but very important was the prompt response and great communication from the owner, Carien. She responded immediately to all questions and emails and was a pleasure to rent from. Would definitely rent this home again and recommend it to anyone staying in the Scottsdale area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and even made use of the bikes.. and were able to explore those bike paths. I will certainly replace the basket this fall (wicker doesn't fare well in the Arizona dry air, does it?) Hope to have you again in the future :)

Great location - backyard sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Two weeks of total relaxation. Carien's home has a perfect location. We particularly enjoyed morning walks along Scottsdale parkway and found the neighbourhood very safe for evening walks. Close to highways and shopping including Old Town Scottsdale.

We had all our meals at the outside dining table. The back yard is beautiful with fruit trees, flowers, and of course the pool. Carien has a string of lights for ambience and it makes for such an enjoyable sanctuary in the evenings.

The pool is not heated so we found it a bit chilly on some days.

Wonderful two weeks of rest and relaxation! Carien was amazing to deal with.

Owner's Response: Love to hear from happy guests! Very glad the house suited you so well, in terms of location and that you enjoyed my backyard as much as I always do :) The pool is definitely still chilly, but I think I'll venture in there in the next 2 weeks! The temps will be up, so it'll be a refreshing dip! Thanks again for staying at my place and maybe we'll see you again next year.
