Amazing Stay, Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

We were more than pleased with our stay!! We visit Arizona a few times per year and usually stay at a resort. We decided to try a VRBO this stay and this property felt just like a 5 star resort. The room is upgraded, clean, and decorated so nicely. Richard was so great to work with and provided us with all the accommodations we needed to have a wonderful stay. We will most certainly be returning!!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and the owners were wonderful. They thought of every detail to make it feel like home. We were there for a very difficult death of my husbands mother. The owners were aware of the reason for our stay and even offfered a nice bottle of wine for us to unwind one night. They were so thoughtful and kind.

First class luxury!

  • 5 of 5

This suite is like a five star hotel! All furnishings, decorations, bedding, towels, etc. are top of the line. We couldn't believe the number of towels, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, k-cups, bottled and the like provided by the owner. The coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator were all we needed. The patio was very nice, but was in the shade in the morning, so we spent time at the beautiful pool, which is only a short walk from the suite. Upon our arrival, the owner was waiting for us outside to show us the bicycles provided for our use. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to use them, but very much appreciated his time and effort. The neighborhood is gated and we felt very safe coming in late at night. Close to our favorite areas of North Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Carefree. A perfect getaway! We will definitely be back!

Delightful private suite

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly as advertised, but even better. Delightfully decorated, has a spacious feel. Back patio is a serene and calming spot. Furnishings are bright, cheery, interesting, and very tasteful. Space-wise, about the size of large a hotel suite, however the furnishings, peacefulness, along with the privacy make it far and away better than staying in any hotel. Nicely supplied with coffees/teas...all they say. I would recommend to any and everyone and stay again. (If you're looking for a place that is full-service/stocked/room service; i.e. a hotel 'room'...not the spot for you). We loved it!
