About Maryann Wolf

Scottsdale has a great night life. I am an executive with a national healthcare consulting firm. I was originally relocated to Phoenix by my company. My husband and I own a printing business in Las Vegas, so my husband, with our dogs, still live in our home in Las Vegas. We enjoy the activities that both cities have to offer. Our kids are away at college (Hawaii and San Diego). This has given us the time to enjoy ourselves and travel. This gorgeous Scottsdale home was recently fully remodeled to create a cottage look. The furnishings were selected to match the style of the house (since I had no extra furniture it's been fun shopping). It's been designed with comfort and entertaining in mind. Making it very easy to rent it since it is unique. The house is a stopping place for me while spending the balance of my time travelling for work, pleasure, or in Las Vegas.

Maryann Wolf purchased this house in 2014

Why Maryann Wolf chose South Scottsdale

We searched for a neighborhood with easy access to everything that Phoenix has to offer. Since we are not into track homes, we searched for a custom alternative. This remodeled 1960 home made to look like a cottage fits our requirement of comfortable and unique. The location is 2 blocks from Camelback, making it walking or biking distance to old town. It is close to the Greenbelt and Chaparral park. Saturday farmer's market and the auto show up on Indian Bend every Saturday. Thursday art walk is in Old Town. Restaurants and hiking galore. Talking Stick Casino is only 2 exits away. Love this area. Phoenix is a great city for exploring. We hope to provide you with a great experience in this house during your stay.

What makes this house unique

A home that has the luxury of a hotel but all the comforts of home. We enjoy our time at the house every chance we get because it just feels good to be there. You will see, once you have the chance to stay at our cottage in Scottsdale. We are always adding and upgrading to make the house the best VRBO destination.

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, extremely well maintained home which is ideally located to everything you could possibly want to do in Scottsdale. The owners have created an environment that is very comfortable and welcoming. There are two bikes available (bring your helmets) so you can enjoy the multi-use walk/bike trail which is 3 short blocks away. We enjoyed daily rides along the miles and miles of paved pathway extending all the way to Tempe and probably beyond. While in Scottsdale don't miss Spring Training (in March), the Desert Botanical Garden, the Musical Instrument Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesan West and much, much more. I have rented many homes through HomeAway and this one absolutely deserves 5 stars. Having direct access to the owner, MaryAnn, was an added bonuses and rarity in the short term rental experience. Thanks, MaryAnn, for making our stay so special.

Great themed bedrooms. Really Nice House(s)

  • 5 of 5

We also rented the house across the street. We all came in for a family reunion. There are 5 sisters, so with our husbands and kids, this worked out great. The hardest part was picking the bedrooms. They are all so different. The cooking amenities and kitchen supplies made it easy for us to have our reunion BBQ/dinner. We could have easily used both kitchens with our crowd. Worked out great/

Great weekend Getaway Location for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. The only issue we had was it was too hot to go into the Spa. We have to come back. It looked so inviting! The house was really cute. Love the themed rooms, the details, the amenities. There was enough of everything....and it all matched. The kitchen was well equipped. Didn't need to improvise. Which we've had to do at other VRBOs. The washer and dryer were unbelievable for a rental. The location is so close to Old Town and the Saturday classic car gathering. Rich is really into those classics. Thank you MaryAnn for all the restaurant suggestions. Also, the bagpiper at the Westin. It was a perfect getaway weekend for us. Oh.....James and Jaclyn enjoyed the night life, they said the golf cart cabbies had no problem dropping them off. Back to California, but a great break. Thanks.

YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE YOUR DEPOSIT AND ARE BEING WATCHED

  • 1 of 5

We are local to Arizona and needed a spot to stay while we transitioned from one house to another. Upon moving out the owner of this house made a claim to the insurance company for $7200. She encouraged us to have the insurance company pay the claim (lie) if we wanted our deposit back. Upon being contacted by the insurance company we gave them the facts and that no damage was made to the house.

She then replied to us with the following info:

"You registered on VRBO and confirmed with me that you are a renter of 2 adults and 2 young children ("part-time since they stay also with their father"); but 2 college kids and friends also stayed (without permission) at the house smoking and drinking beer (major contract violation that loses the deposit). They also didn't shower going into the spa (another major violation -- posted right on the spa that this violation would cause you to lose your deposit). Gardener found beer, cigarette butts, and multiple cars parked in our drive and on the street (he couldn't park in front of our house because of the cars and could barely squeeze the lawn mower through the cars to the backyard)." Owner

So your college kids stops by to use the spa and has a beer you wont get your deposit back. It also means they are using the camera pointing at the spa. Make sure you are aware that someone is watching you while you say at this house. If you own 3 cars and park on the driveway and street it will be a problem. You are probably not allowed anyone over.

"Dog poop was not routinely picked up creating a problem for the gardener. You were notified of the $25 charge per pile. We were amazed (per gardener) how much dog poop from your 2 dogs you allowed to accumulate and were willing to live with." Owner

We cleaned up our dog poop every week before the gardener came because they threatened us with 25 dollar charges per poop

These are just a few of the many issues we encountered. In addition, there was what appeared to be cat hair over numerous pieces of furniture and we did not feel comfortable sitting on the family room furniture b/c of the amount of animal hair. We were told that $150 was the maximum allowance for the electric bill. Anyone who is familiar with summers in AZ knows this is impossible. She stressed the amount of cars we had on the driveway and street, we own 3 cars and occasionally our college son would stop in, we did not realize the public street was off limits. You are being watched, beware!

Owner's Response: Courtney, the insurance claim was for $720 to cover the kitchen drawer (front fully ripped off), holes in the cabinet plus the wall, baseboard, and floor damage caused by the U-Haul of boxes, pictures, and TVs you decided to store carelessly at the house unbeknownst to us. Our cleaning person, gardener, spa service, and neighbor reported the activities you outlined. They take as much pride in the vacation home as we do, since this is a family oriented community and everyone respects that we don’t support a party house. This is our first complaint and claim since we started renting 3 years ago. We expected we would experience careless damage and dirty renters along the way, just never expected it to be a local family of real estate agents. All rules were in our agreement. Parties, other than registered guests, are strictly prohibited unless you have written approval. The college kids obviously spent the night after partying per cleaning person, neighbors, and gardener. Cats are not allowed on property. The amount of dog poop that accumulated from your dogs were pointed out by the gardener who was refusing to service the back yard because of it. We called in a bug service during your stay thus to deal with the fly infestation it created. We offered you a pickup service for $25/week. The $150/mo allowance toward electricity was agreed ahead of time because it is summer and we didn’t want the A/C to be abused on our dime for a long-term renter, which you did. We are not sure what you had plugged in, but it’s the first time we had 5 GFIs tripped on outlets in the guest rooms (which you ignored) causing the irrigation system to shut off, thereby allowing the grass to burn. We take pride in providing our renters a clean “home away from home” experience and fully equip the property accordingly with quality furniture and amenities.

Outstanding property! Super Clean, convenient location, quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, son, and I stayed here for four days so that we could participate in a tour of the U of A campus. The house is extremely clean and well equipped. Mattresses are new and the bedding is fresh and clean as well. Very quiet neighborhood and conveniently located to downtown Scottsdale. MaryAnn was very helpful and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. Very quick to respond to any questions I had. Would definitely go back!
