About Tony Polk
We moved down from Seattle in 2008 after we realized that everytime we visited Phoenix, our spirits lifted. Where once we spent our lives on jetplanes and doing business, now we found ourselves drinking in the natural beauty, wandering the botanical garden and the arboretum, hiking the mountain trails, exploring the wonderful art this area seems to inspire. Trained as an engineer at the University of Michigan, Sarah had been a technology and sales executive. In Arizona, she took up art and found she has a gift and love for it. A reporter in my early career -- AP,Rocky Mountain News -- I became an entrepreneur and business executive, I resumed writing some in Arizona. I continue doing some business, but on a whole different order of magnitude. We remodel a couple of homes a year; thankfully Sarah is a gifted designer so people want our homes. And we always take time for the beauty of the valley.
Tony Polk purchased this House in 2007
Why Tony Polk chose Paradise Hills Estates
VIEWS,VIEWS, VIEWS ...There are so many places to sit and revel in the wonderful views. This hillside home is in the midst of nature but in the middle of the cities - from up-and-coming innovative restaurants and galleries to the more established in Phoenix or Scottsdale, it's just a few minutes in each direction. PV puts you a short trip from golf courses, premiere shopping,spring training. With so many wonderful places to eat out, you may never eat in, but the gourmet kitchen has everything to cook up those veggies from one of three farmers markets within 7 miles,or two Whole Foods or three Trader Joes.
What makes this House unique
We live close by and are regularly updating the home as we seek to improve it. Just this year we repainted all the bedrooms in a brighter color and redecorated them, added a chandelier over the master bathtub, and added tv's into all the bedrooms. Also, thinking of comfort and convenience we've added an extra sidetable here or chair there so you have somewhere to put your coffee or sit down while you take off your shoes.

Amazing home and excellent host!
We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful Paradise Valley home. Tony met me at the house to check in and make sure that we had everything we needed to feel at home. The house is set up perfectly and the views spectacular. We will definitely be back!
A perfect home away from our own. Ideal in every way. Tony and his wife are perfectly accommodating hosts and the home is beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay at this home! Tony and Sarah were great to work with and very helpful during our stay. The location of this home is excellent, we were close to many great restaurants and lots of options for hiking. We loved everything about this house and plan to return next year.
Gorgeous Views in Paradise Valley
We enjoyed a great week at Tony and Sarah’s Paradise Valley home in Arizona. We remained in awe of the views of Camel Back Mountain and the nearby hills and the city from the great covered porch area at the home and through the huge windows throughout. The home is situated on the side of a hill in a very quiet affluent area. The driveway to the house slopes down from the road, with the views from the house looking out from this elevated vantage point. The garage (which renters have use of) has power operated doors front and back, with a paved turn around out the back of the garage, so you can easily park in the garage and drive forward up the driveway when leaving. Tony (the owner) met us at the start of our visit and showed us the ins and outs of the home (electronics, pool, HVAC, appliances, etc). He was very friendly and offered advice on things to do,etc. The home is large and open. It was well equipped and maintained. We were renting the home just as a couple, but we could see how a larger group would be able to enjoy both together time and quiet time in this home. The lot is large and treed and private. A new home is under construction next door, but they are separated due to the large property size and by lots of trees, and they work only limited hours M-F. We were not really impacted by this, and construction should be done in the not too distant future. The location is great, with shopping and restaurants nearby and lots of nice places to hike. We greatly enjoyed the Phoenix Mountain Preserve (just minutes away) and Pinnacle Peak trails during our stay. Even just walking through the neighbourhood was interesting. There are no sidewalks in the neighbourhood but the traffic is very light. Roadrunners and rabbits and hummingbirds abound. Our week went so fast. Highly recommended.
Great views, great location, great property
We just finished a week stay and had an amazing time. We are a family of 5 and could have brought more guests and easily fit them. Mornings on the porch having coffee was the best. The pool was the kids' favorite.
This property has it all. Full kitchen, all the appliances, great location, and incredible views.
The owners are great to work with and very accomodating. We'll definitely stay here again.
Experiencing the Lux Life
My family and I stayed at this house a couple years ago; we loved it even more this time. The owners have added more modern & comfortable chairs by the tv, and made some other changes. I just love it! I put my feet up, Woodford Reserve in my glass, and felt like I was living inside the most beautiful picture drawn by Mad Men (a little mid-century modern, a little eclectic, a lot of luxury). I think back to this time as a time I could relish being still, staring at the natural beauty in the garden and Camelback Mountain.
