"This was our first time renting on VRBO. I was extremely nervous about the whole process. We were given the address and code to the home ahead of our arrival and when we opened the front door and saw this amazingly beautiful home, our jaws dropped. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Spacious and elegant with a sense of welcoming and personal touches throughout the home. My elderly parents were also nervous about renting a house site unseen and I assured them that everything would be fine and that they would be in one of the bedrooms on the main floor. We settled them into the master bedroom off the dining room. I wish you could have seen their faces as they entered this beautiful, grand master suite. Their smile said it all. We scored big! The extra bonus was the painting of Madonna and Child outside their room. We planned our visit to Scottsdale to meet our daughter's husbands family and have a big family-style Sunday dinner uniting family from the east and west coast. This house was terrific in accommodating all our entertaining needs. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, silverware, platters, glassware, spices and so much more. (Including a walk-in pantry to put all our groceries and supplies) This was my favorite room in the house. It was centrally located where I could cook and share family stories while looking out at the patio, living room or the dining room. My parents enjoyed the patio and pool. Dad even played mini-golf with his grandchildren in the heat of the day. The patio is where we set up the extra tables and chairs for dinner. There was plenty of space to accommodate extra seating (which was provided by the home). There was a patio mister that kept us all cool. At the end of the day, we all headed for the movie room on the lower level. Wow, what a fantastic selection of movies to choose from!
All in all, we would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a place call "home" for a few days and enjoy entertaining family and friends. It was very clean and in great shape. We did not need to go out to dinner, but there are plenty of restaurants close by as well as an abundance of shopping.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity of staying in a home that made us feel comfortable, safe and entertained us during our stay. What a true blessing and a rare find!"
