About the property

North Scottsdale Guest Suite Located Near Kierland and TPC Scottsdale

Located in North Scottsdale, we are offering a peaceful, tropical oasis for our guests. Our comfortable single level 1,030 sq. ft. private Guest Suite has a separate entrance that does not require our guests to go through our own living space. Our house has a duplex setup providing privacy for our guests. Its location is ideal, being a 4-minute drive to TPC Scottsdale Golf Club and walking distance to Kierland shopping and dining. The Guest Suite has 2 bedrooms; one with a queen bed and sitting area, the other is a cheerful room with 2 twin beds. Both bedrooms have walk-in closets. It also includes a bathroom with 2 sinks and a Jacuzzi tub with shower, a living room, a dining room with a buffet equipped with dishes and silverware, a small refrigerator/freezer, a microwave, and a Keurig for coffee or tea (no kitchen or sink for washing dishes are available). In addition, there's access to our back yard with a pool and propane grill (the pool is heated only by the sun; its temperature is dependent on the weather; best swimming weather is April thru September). Wireless internet access, Netflix and cable TV are available at no additional charge. Enjoy the Arizona sunshine in our private back yard! Truly a resort lifestyle.

About Dan Elkins

Both Dan and Terry grew up in the Seattle area. They met at Bellevue High School where they graduated together in 1972, and were married 43 years ago. Dan worked as a manufacturing engineer for Boeing for over 12 years before moving to Scottsdale 22 years ago. He finished his career as a Technical Writer and is now retired from Honeywell in order to have free time to write books and take mission trips to India. Terry is currently a respiratory therapist in an adult ICU for a major Phoenix hospital. We both love to share our home in Scottsdale and meet new friends!

Dan Elkins purchased this house in 2001

Why Dan Elkins chose Phoenix

We fell in love with North Scottsdale and bought this home because of its great location. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac but still close to stores, restaurants, golf courses, hiking trails, and major freeways. You can see beautiful sunrises over the mountains just east of us if you are early risers.

What makes this house unique

The backyard is a tropical oasis in the Arizona desert. The pool is surrounded by lush plants and has a soothing water fall. Once you sit back in our comfy chairs you won't want to leave!

Experience was a 5 star!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best home accommodation I have ever had. First, the hosts were exceptional. They made my stay very comfortable. The property had a spacious and delightful ambiance and still preserves your privacy. Highly recommended!

Comfort, Charm and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

Comfort, charm and convenience at the Kelton House:

Because my just-completed four-night stay at the Kelton House was especially relaxing and enjoyable, I want to affirm what is economically available at this North Scottsdale jewel. The charming neighborhood home-away-from-home is the perfect site for a relaxing resort-like stay without paying a “luxury surcharge” for golf course and tennis court maintenance. Dan and Terry Elkins, the gracious host and hostess who have anticipated the full range of their guests’ hospitality needs, provide comfortable accommodations and amenities without hovering. My wife and I enthusiastically recommend this delightful site for people considering a relaxing stay just a half mile from North Scottsdale’s epicenter, the Frank Lloyd Wright Spire.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Once again we spent a wonderful time sharing this home with the owners. A more generous and kind couple we couldn't find. The location is perfect and the accommodations lovely. A real find in a centrally located area of Scottsdale near EVERYTHING. As MacArthur once said, "I shall return!"
