Why Kenneth Moore chose Camelback East
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Right in the heart of every major sports, shopping and entertainment opportunity in Scottsdale. Walk everywhere. Hop aboard the free Old Towne Scottsdale trolley to visit our world-renowned art district. "Uber" .05 miles to Scottsdale's all-new "W" and other hot nightclub spots...or take a quick drive to Arizona State University main campus in Tempe, Arizona.
What makes this House unique
Ken's story: My wife Patt and I looked at exactly 22 homes throughout the Scottsdale/Arcadia/Phoenix corridor before settling on this one in 1994. Walking through the front door, greeted by the expansive 12 ft tall windows looking out over the pool, we purchased the home outright, writing a check on the spot. It's been more than two decades yet both Patt and I still gain a sense of quietude and accomplishment each time we pass those living room windows. You'll get the same rush when you first walk into this exceptional home that now boasts a baby-grand player piano, a one of a-kind, 12'sculpture affectionately known as Mother Earth, an Entertainment Room like no other, massive bedrooms and upscale, designer furnishings and amenities, throughout.

A fantastic stay!
A party of 6 of us stayed at Kenneths home for a weekend vacation and we couldn't of been happier with the experience. Upon arrival Kenneth kindly greeted us at the home. Kenneth gave us a detailed tour of the home and explained everything we needed to know. Our group was astonished with the attention to detail that Ken and his family has put into the home. The outdoor living space is truly amazing as well, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the pool. Needless to say we would strongly recommend this home for anyone looking to stay in an immaculate, beautiful place that resembles a resort but all packed within a home. Oh and the location is amazing as well, so close to everything we wanted to do.. Needless to say we will be returning!
Best rental house in all of Scottsdale!
This house was amazing. Back yard and pool area were stunning. Great views of camel back mountain, and only a 3 minute drive from the fashion district. We had 10 guys for a golf trip, bedrooms are spacious, and Ken was very accommodating. I highly recommend renting this house! Thank you Ken!
Three generations of our family enjoyed Christmas week '17 together in this expansive property near the foot of Camelback Mountain. Just a few minutes walk from the swank Phoenician resort and a few minutes drive from Scottsdale's Fashion Square mall the property couldn't be any better positioned for enjoying all the varied amenities of the Scottsdale area. The home is so nice and well equipped, however, that you will probably not want to leave it very often. All of the website pictures are accurate representations of what the property has to offer. The owner is local and is very helpful with information on dining, shopping and recreation. He recommended a Chef who prepared a delicious three course dinner for our last night at the house. We have rented many vacation properties over the years and this one is by far the best equipped and managed.
Thanks James. It was a pleasure hosting you extended family. You and yours are welcome back anytime.
All the best
The Perfect House
My wife and I took our two small children, our niece and my in-laws for 5 days. This place was perfect. The house was immaculate. Every room provided a different atmosphere to enjoy. The kitchen was equipped with everything that you need, the bedrooms were luxurious and the outside pool area felt like a movie set. The house is within a short Uber ride from everything downtown Scottsdale has to offer. We enjoyed every moment.
Thank you Ken and Kelli for a wonderful time. You guys are first class. Can't wait to come back.
You and your family are first class. If there was a category higher, I'd nominate you for same. It was a sincere pleasure hosting you and your family. Continued good luck in your real estate business. I hope to see you again, soon.
All the very best
We had a group of guys stay here for a Scottsdale golf trip. The house was unbelievable! We spent most of our time by the pool or in the game room, if we were not playing golf. The bedrooms were large and accommodating. Also, the location was very close to nice restaurants, golf courses, and bars. Ken, the owner, was very hospitable and thoughtful. One of my favorite trips!!!
You and yours guys are "5 Star" guests. You're welcome back anytime.
All the best
Everything was as advertised!
We stayed at this property from 5/27-6/3-17. There were 10 of us. Age ranges from 1 1/2 years old to 65, with teens in the mix too. Plenty to do on the property with ping pong, pool table, huge swimming pool and the awesome 1950's game room with jukebox, pinball machines and other games. The coolest thing was everyone of those old games worked!
As the listing says, "luxury retreat at the base of Camelback Mountain", that is no exaggeration. Literally in the backyard is the famous Phoenician Resort, they have 3- 9hole courses and the rates were very reasonable.
Fashion Square is literally about a mile away, very walk-able as many of us did.
Ken and his daughter Kelly were great to work with making sure all of our needs were met. We will recommend this property!
Thank you !
