Why Trudy chose Cactus Acres

Close to Everything! Old Town Scottsdale, Shopping, Restaurants, Golf, and just 5 min. to the 101. There is nothing better than having your own place to lounge and enjoy, with all the amenities of home with lots of space to move in. This is a lovely home with very nice furnishings and lots of fun things to do just staying here, like playing sand volleyball, sitting around a bonfire, throwing horseshoes, Barbecuing and entertaining outside and taking a dip in the beautiful new heated swimming pool. Resort style living just for you and your family and friends. Wonderful relaxing atmosphere with all the comforts of home.

What makes this estate unique

There are very beautiful Arabian and Western horse ranches surrounding the neighborhood. Bike paths are nearby and go all the way to Tempe. This home is in a very unique custom home neighborhood and all the properties sit on acreages. It is not uncommon to see horseback riders stroll by, right in the heart of the city. This home has a beautiful newly built Heated Pool, a regulation Sand Volleyball court, and a huge Custom Fire Pit to sit around at night. The back yard has a western exposure so it is warm and sunny all winter long. There is also a beautiful ivory Baby Grand Piano in the formal living room and TV's in all the bedrooms. A little something for everyone.

Beautiful Vacation Home with All of the Extras!

  • 5 of 5

This home has the WOW factor. Beautifully decorated in an upscale Scottsdale neighborhood, this vacation home provides luxury and comfort. Our host, Trudy, welcomed us with fresh fruit and snacks upon our arrival. Trudy was always easily available for any questions or assistance during our stay and the helpful booklet for the property spelled out everything we needed to know, including recommendations for dining, outdoor activities, shopping, etc.

After our rounds of golf each day, we were able to relax in the heated pool and share the evening with our friends in the beautiful patio and backyard areas. We could even pick fresh oranges and limes from the trees in the yard.

I was impressed at all of the amenities, little extras and supplies provided at the property for guests, from beach towels for the pool to cleaning supplies for the laundry. Clearly, these hosts understand attention to detail.

This home is also located in a quiet residential area, but just minutes from great restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping.

Thanks Trudy for a wonderful vacation experience - we will see you next year!

Beautiful, inviting property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a local staycation. Trudy created us at the property and gave a great tour of the home before providing a house warming treat. Trudy provided great local recommendations for restaurants and places to go. Trudy also checked in one of the days to see if we needed any extra umbrellas for the pool. Overall we had a great stay and we would definitely recommend her home for a place to stay in Scottsdale.

Wonderful. House was beautiful! Trudy was so fun and helpful! We had the best fruit platter waiting for us and we enjoyed it all weekend! House is close to everything we wanted to do. Great restaurants and shopping close. Her backyard is spacious and so many areas for us to relax and enjoy the warmth. Just the R&R we needed!
