There are books to read, board games to play, cable and internet to enjoy in a beautifully furnished home. Bird feeders in the yard attract too many birds to name, but want to mention, I do have wild parrots that come to eat every day. Keep the bird feeders full and you will enjoy a variety of birds. They will wait on the back wall in the morning if you feed them on a regular schedule. The backyard features the most amazing sunsets. They truly are magnificent so bring your cameras!!!!

The Sanctuary Resort is also close by and has great food and beautiful view of Paradise Valley. The Boulders Resort is just North on Scottsdale Road about 20 minutes and offers many amenities. The Montelucia Resort is nearby on Lincoln and has great entertainment. All these resorts have great spas. The Biltmore is also close by. If you want the best massage in AZ, I have the best massage therapist who will come to the house and is so reasonable you won't believe it! If you are a baseball fan and want to stay here during spring training, my home is literally 4.7 miles from Salt River Fields and 6.6 miles from Scottsdale Stadium. The neighborhood is quiet so this is not the house to rent and throw wild parties. The neighbors all watch out for each other here. My home is beautiful and I want to lease it to people who will appreciate and take good care of it.

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.

A Beautiful Desert Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location!

Robin's house is located in the perfect spot - close to great stores, restaurants, activities etc. The kitchen is perfect for family gatherings with a fantastic eat at island. The pool floaties were perfect for relaxing and watching the gorgeous sunsets! Loved the bunnies and baby birds. Would rent again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We are 2 couples who stayed at this home for 10 days. It was everything we needed! The backyard was great to relax in, the pool (warmed by solar heat) was something we looked forward to after spring training ball games. This home is situated in a quiet area & we found we were in a fairly central driving distance to a variety of ball parks, shopping, restaurants, etc. Robin was quick to reply to any questions that I had during our stay. Thank you!! Lynne

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.

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.
