SPRING TRAINING 2015: Home to 15 Major League Baseball teams, this Cactus League provides an opportunity to bask in the sun and watch your favorite team. Spring Training is so much more than the games though. Check out the player's popular hangout spots, the Cactus League Legacy Trail, and other attractions in and around Old town.

For baseball fans, it’s like a dream come true. Imagine a place where, every day for a whole month at 1:00 in the afternoon, you can choose between as many as eight to 10 Major League Baseball games being played by 15 teams in 10 of the most intimate ballparks in the country. This dreamlike scenario unfolds every spring in Scottsdale and the Valley of the Sun metro region, beginning in mid-February when pitchers and catchers report to their respective teams’ spring training camps, and runs through the end of March with more than 200 games on the Cactus League schedule. So, get ready to live the dream. This unique house places you in the center of the action; with 4 different trolley lines networking to give you easy access to and from the ballparks (FREE and EASY!).

NOTE: Walk 2 very short blocks to the Camelback Bus Stop (#50) and take it straight to Fashion Square Mall (5 minutes) and connect to the FREE Downtown Scottsdale Trolley for all the bars and restaurants in the downtown section. Return after 9 pm by Golf Cart Taxi or Uber or Walk. That easy! (Golf Cart Taxis will also pick you up and drop you off at the house and Scottsdale stadium, you can even call ahead--all numbers provided)

OR TO SCOTTSDALE STADIUM (2 miles away): Catch the FREE Miller Road Trolley that takes you right to the Stadium (walk 6 blocks to Chaparral to catch the Trolley or use the #50 bus for the 10 blocks to Miller). Maps and Routes available at the house outlining these options.

Do NOT wait, reserve this house today!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Scottsdale has a great night life. I am an executive with a national hospital system. I was 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.

Why the Owner Chose Scottsdale Country Acres, Scottsdale, AZ, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
