About Robin Shores
I bought this home in 2002 and completed a stunning renovation in 2015. The inside couldn't be more perfect. The back yard is a paradise and I truly love creating a warm and welcoming home. I am a licensed realtor in 3 states, including Arizona. My hobbies are photography, travel, hiking, concerts, theater and great music. I love The Rolling Stones and just saw them for the 5th time in Petco Stadium in San Diego. They still have it! I have traveled extensively and really enjoy meeting people from different cultures and learning about their customs and way of life. I welcome you to my home and to Arizona and hope that you have a fabulous time here!
Robin Shores purchased this House in 2002
Why Robin Shores chose Paradise Valley
This is a great property for people who want a first class home at a great price, with a resort like back yard but not a huge mansion. This is a very comfortable and beautiful home, in a great location, so every thing is very close. I love the location. It couldn't be better! I would prefer a long term rental/lease on the property but will entertain 1 week minimum stays. I would prefer at least 1 month, but ideally would like 6 months or more. I am open to discussion.
What makes this House unique
A diving pool, heated by solar with great views, an outdoor entertainment area with built in gas grill and refrigerator, locked gates to back yard for total privacy behind block walls. The gourmet kitchen is one of the best I've seen in AZ. It's large, beautiful and very functional. Pull out drawers for ease of reach, hand picked granite counter tops, KitchenAid double convection ovens, built in kitchenAid microwave, a desk area and a separate walk in pantry. Since I love to cook, the kitchen has everything you will need to cook or bake your food, as well as a great blender and juicer for those who like to juice. There is a separate dining room, a den with a fireplace open to the kitchen and a formal living room. There is plenty of closet space and the entire home was just renovated floors to ceilings. The outside is block construction, so it helps cool the home. Sedona and the Grand Canyon are day trips from here. The spring training baseball fields (Salt River Fields) are within 4.7 miles from here, groceries are 1.4 miles and restaurants and resorts are all around this property. Hiking trails are within minutes for Squaw Peak. Camelback Mountain is 4.5 miles, Pinnacle Peak is approximately a 15-20 minute car ride. Old Town Scottsdale is 6.2 miles, Kierland Commons is 3.4 miles, Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall is 5.5 miles Desert Ridge is approximately 7 miles. Some of the best restaurants are within minutes, Golf courses are abundant and within minutes, Sports arenas and venues are all within minutes. Pets are permitted, but when inquiring, please let me know, age and breed.

Great space! Highly recommend. We will definitely stay here again!
Robin's home was absolute heaven. It felt like we were staying at a private retreat - we loved the outdoor pool area! Solar heated pool (which was great for swimming this time of year), lounge area, and outdoor dining and grill area overlook a beautiful mountain range with epic sunsets.
Great indoor space! The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable.
Robin, our host, could not have been any better! She was quick to respond to our every need.
We will definitely stay here again and we will most certainly be referring family and friends to this home. Thank you for everything, Robin!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and welcome you back any time, so just give us some notice and we are more than happy to host you, your family and your friends.
Thanks for the feedback on the solar. Good to know, it worked well for you, this time of the year!
Thank you for taking such great care of my home. I'm so happy you enjoyed my home and your time in Arizona!
This was such a beautiful house with nice views. The back yard is gorgeous with a nice variety of birds. We were lucky enough to see a Red Tail Hawk sitting on the fence. It's also convenient to lots of shopping and great restaurants.
Thank you, Suzanne! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! The birds are amazing and we are so happy you saw a wide variety of them in our back yard!
Nice, clean, well appointed house, lovely location
We spent 2 months at Robin’s house during a home renovation. It was a pleasant stay during a hot summer. The house had everything we needed, from nice quality linens and towels to a fully stocked kitchen (plates and utensils) to good TV stations. The washer and dryer were nice quality. The backyard was lovely and I kept the hummingbird feeder filled with sugar water and had fun watching the birds. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and we walked every day. Robin was quick to respond to us and a lovely host. We would highly recommend this property.
We loved having you as guests! Any time you need a place, you are always welcome here! Thanks for keeping me informed about everytning. I really do appreciate that you treated my home as though it was yours!!!
Thank you so much!!!
Great location and beautiful home.
Thank you and come back any time!!!
A Beautiful Desert Sanctuary
We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this is by far our favorite! We loved our month-long stay at Robin's home. It's in the perfect location in the Paradise Valley/Scottsdale area. All of her furnishings are comfortable and inviting. The beds & linens are very nice quality. House is super clean and well laid-out. It has a fantastic kitchen with everything you need for cooking - a huge eat-in island and great gas cooktop. One of the best features of the property is the backyard and pool area - so important when you are vacationing in the desert. It's peaceful, quiet and very private. The sunsets are fabulous and watching the many birds at the birdfeeders is an endless source of entertainment . It's a sanctuary for parrots, quail and hummingbirds. Their singing made us feel like we were in paradise. The pools is large and well-maintained. Robin is a great host, responding immediately to us to make sure we were comfortable and happy and we so appreciate her personal interest. Thank you for sharing your home Robin. We look forward to coming back next year.
You and your husband are welcome back anytime. Thank you for being such amazing guest and for treating my home as though it were your own. I wish all my guest were like you. Come back any time!
This was an excellent location, close to TPC Scottsdale and was in great condition. Highly recommend.
Thank you Kevin,
Come back any time! It was a pleasure having you as a guest!
Scottsdale has more golf courses than I can count and are very close. The Phoenix Open is within 12-15 minutes from here. Scottsdale Fashion Square, Desert Ridge area and Kierland Commons offer exceptional shopping. There are wonderful restaurants close by, trail heads within minutes/blocks, Old Town is about 5 miles away and has art walks, restaurants, art galleries, and shops, there are fitness clubs close by, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Fry's, Albertsons, & Safeway are within 5 minutes. The completely private resort like back yard offers fantastic Mountain Views (Squaw Peak & Mummy Mountains), a diving pool, an entertainment area complete with built in gas bbq grill and frig. Frank Lloyd Wrights home is a right out of the subdivision within 15 minutes...a great way to spend a day. Sedona is a short 2 hour drive. There are many day trips you can make from here, even the grand canyon, if you get an early start.
Additional information about rental rates
SORRY CATS ARE NOT ALLOWED!!! Will leave information on the kitchen counter that you need to know with phone numbers of utilities, cable, etc in case they are needed for any reason. Also, list with mileage from here of grocery stores, drug stores, hiking trails, etc. Quiet neighborhood, great location, resort like back yard!. Did I tell you there is a massage chair in the master bedroom...enjoy! If you prefer, I have the best massage therapist, who has agreed to come to the house at a very reasonable rate. He works on a lot of the ball players.
