This property is amazing! It’s actually a private resort with the amenities of Home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 24 (13 adults and 11 kids) sadly left this beautiful home last night after making lasting memories forever. The home itself is absolutely beautiful —just as the pictures represent. Beds are comfortable and inviting. Guests want for nothing since everything is available. A huge fully stocked kitchen extends to a spacious family room with a wonderful fireplace.. The surrounding grounds kept everyone busy all day in the sun in the pool with a slide, on the basketball court , or in the spa.

If we had any questions, the owner, Sal, was always there for us.

We have enjoyed many resorts together, but this choice was our best ever.

Thanks for sharing, Sal.

Wonderful property and excellent for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for my husband's family reunion and several birthday parties. We had 9 kids in various ages and the house was perfect for the group. Sal was so helpful with scheduling and arranging details for the kids from a high chair to a pack and play. Highly recommend

The Best family vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my wife’s 50th birthday, and the home was exquisite. We have stayed at other properties in Scottsdale in the past, but they all have been too far north. The location was perfect, close to all the great restaurants, shopping and golf courses.

This was the first time staying at this property, and we will definitely be back.

The outdoor living space was incredible, even during the hot summer of Arizona, we were still able to spend most of our time outdoors. The home has everything you need, there was even a high chair, pack and play, and kids toys for our little ones.

The kids loved hanging out in the pool and watching movies in the outdoor theater. They had a trampoline, basketball court, snowcone, candy machine, game center downstairs and movie theater keep them busy. Definitely a five star vacation!!

Incredible Property - Even during the summer in Arizona

  • 5 of 5

Our company trip couldn't have been better. Having a team building event with our sales team in Arizona during the summer was a concern since AZ is known to get hot during this time and we wanted to be outdoors. The home had more than we were expecting. It was designed perfectly for the hot AZ summer. We enjoyed the amazing resort backyard all day. The misters and evaporative cooling system on the back patio were perfect and we were able to stay outside all day. The extra large pool was a hit along with the floating pool canopy (very cool). At night time we were able to show our slideshow presentation on the outdoor theater above the pool.

The location was perfect as we were able to UBER everywhere since all the great golf courses and restaurants are within 15 minutes. The details in the home were exquisite and each bedroom having its own bathroom and shower was perfect. We got so much more than expected. We are definitely booking this home again.

Incredible place

  • 5 of 5

Extended family of 18 stayed 5 days, and rarely left. Kids had plenty to do with basketball court, trampoline, swimming pool, hot tub, theatre room, cotton candy machine, and snow cone machine. Adults had acccess to above in addition to fully stocked kitchen, spacious rooms, extensive TV and music options. Bedrooms were large and comfortable, with every room but one having a full bath/shower. Pool is heated. BBQ grill great for outdoor parties.
