Wonderful Scottsdale Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of Casa Petrone. The owners are very accommodating and go above and beyond. They had toys for our kids when we arrived, and the owner, Mike, even showed up as Santa to visit on Christmas Eve and drop off presents. When the hot tub stopped working, Mike was on top of it and had an electrician over to fix it for us. The location is amazing--we often walked to the greenbelt, which was less than 1/2 a mile away. My husband even walked to Fashion Square Mall, which wasn't far either. You're close to the 101 as well. We're hoping to come back next winter! Thanks, Mike and Carrie!

Great Spring Training Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Mike and Carrie for a wonderful month-long stay in their Casa Petrone! Their house is beautifully maintained and decorated. We especially enjoyed early morning walks around the QUIET, safe neighborhood. The backyard was a favorite "hang out" for us. We ate as many meals outdoors as we could, enjoying the lovely landscaping and watching the birds, including a lovely hummingbird. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything in the house worked well. Being from the Midwest, we thoroughly appreciated being able to use the large BBQ grill to cook outdoors in March without freezing!

The house was in a very convenient location, very close to the 101 and 202. We had a short 20 minute drive to see the Cubs at both Sloan Park and Hohokam. The Giants' stadium was within an easy 20 minute walk--no parking hassles! The D-Back stadium was also very close. Grocery shopping and restaurants were all nearby, as were several churches. There are several parks with walking/biking paths that were fun to explore within two miles of the house. We aren't golfers, but the nearby golf course is just a quick five minute drive away.

It was a pleasure to deal with the attentive owners, and we loved our stay. We hope we can return to Casa Petrone again!

Old Town Scottsdale Charmer

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 months and enjoyed our visit very much. We had a few small issues at the beginning of our stay that were immediately rectified by Carrie and Mike. We found them very responsive to our needs and easy to deal with. The house is in a good location 5 minutes from Old Town Scottsdale, with easy access to shopping, groceries, golf courses, restaurants, and 5 minutes from the 101 with easy access to the entire city. The house itself was cozy and comfortable with a large private back yard.

Nice Home Base and in the center of our visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are originally from AZ and came back to attend my sisters wedding. We chose this location due to it being almost the exact middle of where the wedding was in Northern Scottsdale and where we grew up (and still had friends living) in the in southern part of the East Valley. The house was well furnished and fit our needs. Our young boys loved having more room to play then what you would get in a hotel (we have done the hotel 2-room suite and a kitchenette thing before and this house was much better). My pre-school son particularly likes having his own boys sports themed room with a place to hang his hat (literally there was a cute hat hanger shaped like a baseball bat and he hung his hat there). The property was clean and the owners were very accommodating as we arrived early in the AM (forgot to tell them when to expect us) but they got everything set up quickly so we could relax on our first day there. I would recommend this property to others visiting the Phoenix area. It is a nice area and not far from Scottsdale attractions, Phoenix Zoo, Spring Training, etc.
