Been coming to Scottsdale for business travel for years. Realized that the the desert sahuaro landscapes, resort like ambiance, and open space are extraordinary and unique among all locations we've ever visited in the U.S. We welcome our guests to share in our beautiful home.
Reservations purchased this House in 2005
Why Reservations chose Pinnacle Foothills
We had physically toured and evaluated over 100 homes throughout Phoenix and Scottsdale before settling on this Troon North gem. We found that North Troon is the #1 community for quiet, night time skies, cooler elevation, and feeling away from the city in a safe gated resort-like exclusive setting, world class golf (Troon North). It is said that a variety of celebrities have homes just down the street at the Estancia golf club which is on Dynamite Road, across the street from Troon North course. The style of this house is beautiful too, a desert territorial with a flat roof and very high ceilings. Large and very private lot slightly elevated above other homes. This was the previously the home of the developer that built this exclusive community.
What makes this House unique
Amazing night time sky, entire backyard done in custom flagstone (2,500 square feet), pebbletec pool and spa with new gas heater and child safety gate, gas bbq, gated, privacy, pool table, high end comfortable beds, close to Troon North golf, cooler in the summer due to elevation.

dISAPPOINTING WHEN WE FIRST ARRIVED!
For the most part the house was clean, but the yard(all stone) was disappointing! Also, they are in need of new lounge chairs outdoors!
We adjusted, but would never rent it again!
Such a nice classy place
Had an amazing time here. Love the location. House was perfect and well appointed for our family of four. Will definitely come again. Pricing was better value than similar homes in the area. It fit our needs just fine. This is in a beautiful part of North Scottsdale. I like the horseback riding at the place about 5 minutes east down dynamite road, very close to the house.
Location and neighborhood very good especially for golf. House poorly furnished. Maintenance and cleanliness was extremely poor. Would not stay here again nor would I recommend it to friends.
Terry, we hope that during your stay you would please call the owner directly at the number listed or email us if you need help from the cleaning or maintenance teams and you haven't been able to reach them. You did stay at the home for one month, so if you need touch up cleaning say weekly throughout your stay that is an available option for your consideration. It was peak season when you stayed and it would be recommended to let the owner know if you are not able to reach someone for service or maintenance. We checked with the owner and he did not receive any phone calls from you at all during your stay. He would receive your call immediately, and directly. We certainly would then do what we can to help you and notify the property management team on your behalf. Not sure which furniture you had comment on, all furniture is shown in the pictures. The beds are very comfortable, pillow top and spring air. The TV is a new LG large flatscreen. You have two dining tables, large southwestern style leather couches & easy chair, cooking equipment, dinner ware, dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV & wifi internet, pool table, BBQ grill, etc. Gas heated pebbletec Pool & Jacuzzi, and you have Troon North golf just a couple minutes away.
Not Family Friendly With Many Deferred Maintenance Issues
Unfortunately, I am unable to recommend this property for several basic problems. I would not give it a one star rating. This is not a family friendly property. The owner is very quick to collect his money but is unwilling to address many of the maintenance deferred issues. I own rental property as well so I was willing, to a point, to identify maintenance, deferred in this case, issues that needed to be addressed. I spent many, many hours waiting and accommodating their repair people to fix things that should have been done prior to my stay in this house. Had I read one of the other reviews first, I would have selected the another property in North Scottsdale.
To address some of the problems. 1) The two sliding glass door locks would not seat properly such that the windows where NEVER secure. The owner would not address this problem during our stay. 2) Someone dumped toilet paper in the swimming pool which left it unusable during our stay. This noisy pump was constantly running, in addition to the AC unit pump, directly outside of the master bedroom. The constant noise level upset many nights' sleep. 3) No screens on any of the windows because "the owner did not want the windows open". Unfortunately, the result is constant recirculation of existing air and potentially a much higher electric bill than necessary. 4) The dishwasher was not properly cleaning the dishes which then required hand washing. 5) The "jetted" tub was not functioning nor was repaired during our stay. 6) The kitchen supplies, dishes, cups, glasses, pot and pans, etc. is very minimal and requires maintenance and many additions. 7) The back yard is fully "landscaped" with concrete and uneven stone pavers. Difficult to walk, play and extremely hot. During several of the many monsoon storms, the back yard flooded creating two separate pools of water.
There are many other issues but 7 are more than enough for this review.
While the management company's repair individual was extremely talented and easy to discuss maintenance problems, I found that the administrative people to be less than professional. One individual provided the owner with my email address and telephone number free of my permission. The result, on the Fourth of July that was a family outing, was 5 telephone calls and 8 emails within a 6 hour period to collect $180. Apparently, I did respond instantaneously to his needs.
I am still waiting for the return of my deposit.
The maintenance team has spent time at the home after her checkout and repaired everything needing fixing though several of items this guest mentioned as problems the maintenance team could not find. We recommend that future guests please contact maintenance team while you are still staying at the home (before you checkout) in case there is anything that needs attending to. We are glad to take care of it and the maintenance & management office is open 7 days a week so the home can be in good shape for you and future guests. We also recommend guests that request an extension of their stay, to confirm before their scheduled checkout. This way, it is considerate to the cleaning crew and maintenance so cleaning and inspection can be rescheduled to a later date and they can focus on the houses that need to be cleaned and maintained for the benefit of future guests. It was fortunate that the owner was able to find this guest directly just in time through the phone number guest provided directly to the owner so the office could turn the cleaning crew around and cancel cleaning.
Not four season!!
This home was very dusty and had dog hair everywhere. This home also has had water damage is several areas of the home. The area is NOT kid friendly. Also the owner allows smoking on this property. If you have allergies this house is not a good choice. Also beware of snakes!
Maintenance met with this guest at the home and after performing inspection on the items found they were not as she perceived them. No dog hair or water problems and no indication anyone had ever smoked in the home (not allowed). Pest control came by and verified no snakes. This is the only guest that has mentioned allergies, all other guests no problem. After this guest moved out, we had maintenance and professional carpet cleaning go in and check again, make any needed repairs, and refresh, deep clean everything, including replace and dry clean comforters, etc. We'd suggest that parents accompany very small young children if they'd like to go out running and playing throughout the quiet and tranquil neighborhood, for their safety, and to enjoy together.
We are here this week and it is a wonderful tranquil stay in a clean luxurious home with a nice pool, hot spa, and beautiful night time skies & stars. Interesting to note, the General Manager of the Four Season's Resort around the corner from us stayed at this home for a month with his family, including young children, upon relocating to Scottsdale and gave us wonderful feedback and comments about this beautiful resort-style home and the surroundings.
North Scottsdale property
Listing was accurate. Minimal supplies, e.g. Dish soap, toilet paper. Downside was location--about 45 minutes from Downtown Scottsdale, restaurants , shopping, etc. Pool was heated and enjoyable for the kids, but the all-flagstone, sloped backyard was very sterile, not suitable for kids to play.
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We are located in North Scottsdale as stated on our description. It is a very tranquil and a true Sonoran desert ambiance if that's what your looking for in your vacation. We do provide the basics such as dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper, towel papers and some soap and shampoo to get our guests situated for the first couple of days. After that, our guests can find what they feel is needed at a nearby Walgreens located just around the corner of our gate. There is also a Safeway just 10 minutes away. Most of our guests take advantage of the the beautiful scenery by choosing to hike (Pinnacle Peak) or bike or swim in or around our home. We also have a pool table in the house and a lot of board games. Therefore the flagstone in not an issue. Many of our guests feel it's a lot cleaner and less cluttered.
phoenix zoo, desert botanical gardens, heard museum, rock art (petroglyph) museum, scottsdale museum of contemporary art, frank lloyd wright taliesin west, mccormick railraod park, crackerjax family fun and sports park, hummer and jeep tours, cave creek and carefree for shopping restaurants and antiquing.
