Melissa and Victor are wonderful hosts who share their beautiful casita that is beautifully appointed, homey, comfortable and has everything we needed! In addition, chilled water was waiting for us as were bagels, muffins and cream cheese and a myriad of snacks! We highly recommend this wonderful casita!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. It was the Phoenix part of our Arizona tour and we found this casita to be perfect. My wife likes to sleep in the morning and I like to hike. Right across the street within walking distance is the McDowell Preserve with great hiking trails which I took advantage of every morning. We were also close to Old Scottsdale and all of the many attractions the area has to offer. In addition, there are many restaurants within a short drive. The casita has everything you would want in a home away from home. The bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. The living area is also very comfortable. If your looking for a place that makes you feel like a local, this is it.

Lovely upscale casita in ideal Scottsdale location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely casita in a gated community near McDowell Mtn. Senoran Preserve. It is exactly as listed. We enjoyed staying here, would stay here again, and would recommend it. One reason we selected a VRBO residence as opposed to a resort is the desire to have a quiet location, which this very much satisfied. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. There are grocery stores and restaurants within 1-2 miles, along with a CVS. Access to the freeway is also very good. If you like hiking, the Preserve is literally across the street from the main entrance.

Relaxing Stay in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect fit for our extended family, from toddlers to Great Grandma. It offered plenty of space to spread out and relax. We spent most of our time outside, enjoying the pool, spa, and covered patio. The retractable porch screens were such a nice added feature to limit the afternoon sun. The mountain views from the backyard are amazing, and the pictures don't come close to doing it justice. The neighborhood was safe and friendly, and the shared amenities, like the pools and playgrounds, were a wonderful added bonus. We loved early morning and evening walks around Windgate. The location of the neighborhood was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and hiking, right across the street at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The owner was very easy to work with and answered my many questions promptly. His brother-in-law, who manages the property locally, was attentive and helpful as well. We hope stay again!!

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, and yet be together as well. The kids had the bedrooms and bonus room to hang out in and the parents had the very nice large master suite. Great house for our family of five or it could easily acomodate two families. The pool and spa was great for the kids--and for the adults with sore hiking legs! We'll recommend the place to friends and family in the future. The owners were great to work with, and they have other family in the area just in case there's any thing that might come up. Thanks so much for sharing your nice home. Looking forward to the next time!
