About the property

Beautiful Home in North Scottsdale

Just remodeled, luxurious and modern, this 5br/4.5ba single-level North Scottsdale home features indoor-outdoor living with 18 foot glass sliders opening onto a giant porch spanning the length of the home, overlooking the pool and hottub and a pergola with fireplace, barbeque, fridge and dining space. Midway between Carefree's elegant fun shops, galleries and restaurants and the sophisticated shopping of Kierland and Scottsdale Commons and the nearby Mayo Clinic, this spacious home sits on an acre of desertscape with giant Sahuaros and lush palms. It is a peaceful sanctuary just minutes away from great golf courses, fine restaurants, rugged hiking trails and endless paths meandering through the desert. This home is the second for owner/operators Sarah and Tony. (We do not advertise on Craigslist - only VRBO /Homeaway. Please only go through those companies. If this is on craigslist it is a scam. ) If we're booked - ask about our other house! Tony and Sarah pride themselves on the spotless cleanliness of their homes and taking the extra step to make sure your vacation is perfect. Four of the five bedrooms feature ensuite baths; one of the suites has a separate entrance for extra privacy. We call that the VIP suite.

The beautiful porch features seating, chaises, an extra large dining table, and a ping pong table. The xeriscaped backyard features two fountains, and a cozy outdoor living/cooking space with nat.gas beehive fireplace, grill, fridge and dining space. Safely fenced and gated, the heated pool features a sun shelf and spa.Gorgeously appointed kitchen and dining room have plenty of room for cooking and socializing.

The large master has its own sitting room and large ensuite with two vanities, and a huge walk in shower (2 separately controlled shower heads!). The blue room features a queen bed, blue and brass decor and an ensuite with shower. The white/green/gray room has a king bed and ensuite, and a built in queen-size Murphy bed for extra sleeping space for large groups. The smallest room (with the giraffe painting) has a comfortable queen bed. Accessible from the backyard, the special VIP suite has a living room, ensuite with shower, and separate bedroom with queen-sized bed.

About Tony Polk

Hi, we're Tony and Sarah, and we first started VRBOing our home in PV barely a year ago. We loved it. We love talking to people as they plan their vacations, and we love hearing back from them that the little touches we made (robes in every room, games, beautiful pool towels), all made a difference to them. We started remodeling this home in North Scottsdale, and just knew it would be perfect for all kinds of visitors - groups of golfers, families, ladies weekends, etc.

Tony Polk purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

When we first came to the area 10 years ago, we were drawn to the homes and the communities up north of the 101. Community guidelines make the shops and gas stations etc. almost invisible at first. All you notice are mountains, sky, cactus and the wildlife.We spent most of the last 10 years in Paradise Valley but this area beckoned to us. The rock formations, the hiking, the art galleries and restaurants, the wildness of the area all made it perfect for a peaceful but active vacation. We've heavily remodeled this home, but stayed in it for a few months beforehand, and relished the many hiking trails, and the gorgeous sunsets that seem more prevalent up in the wilds of North Scottsdale.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and comfortable, with a pool, hot pool, ping pong table, and many games for children. The owners were welcoming and helpful, providing bird books to my husband when he expressed an interest in birds of the area. A great house for an intergenerational family vacation -- or for any other group!

Only issue was there were no floating devices for the pool. We bought some and left them for the next guests! Would definitely return!

Great property, quiet desert location with close amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. Perfect for our group of 8 adults and 4 kids under three. Everyone loved the covered patio and the pool - especially the young ones. The hot tub was perfect for a relaxing evening soak and beverage. We had some awesome meals around the huge cast iron outdoor dining table! Thank you Tony and Sarah for everything you did to make our stay memorable. We would absolutely stay here again !!!

Great vacation home for family

  • 5 of 5

Really great home / indoors and backyard space. Family of four and we had plenty of room. Kids loved the pool area and particularly the attached quarters (we simply started referring to our 14 year old as "neighbor" as he considered this his apartment). Good location in North Scottsdale. Hosts were wonderful. I believe the security deposit was refunded the same day as our checkout. Recommended without hesitation. Thank you, Tony and Sarah.
