Our colorful home is more than a vacation rental. We are veteran travelers who prefer a home to a hotel. What makes a home away from home: a welcoming & well-kept house, comfy beds, central location, privacy for all, a well-equipped kitchen, plenty of clothes hangers, WIFI & space to work if necessary.
You just can't beat our location in Scottsdale. You're a few minutes' drive from the San Francisco Giants Spring Training Stadium (only a 35-minute walk or 20-minute trolley ride). Fashion Square, its upscale shops and restaurants, & 14 movie theaters are across the street. Fifth Avenue Shops & Old Town are within walking distance, or you can hop aboard one of the free trolleys that traverse Downtown Scottsdale. This is super convenient if you're into the vibrant nightlife in Old Town. PLUS, you are no farther than about 25 minutes by car from most anything else of interest in the Phoenix area... including the airport! The internationally acclaimed Musical Instrument Museum is about 25 minutes north, Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West about 25 minutes northeast, and the fabulous Phoenix Art Museum is about 20 minutes west. You about 10 minutes from the Desert Botanical Garden going south; the legendary Biltmore neighborhood is a few minutes west; and there are numerous nearby resorts. Walk, run, or bike along the Arizona canal (we walk there all the time), or take advantage of one of the numerous nearby hiking trails.
Our lot is like a little urban oasis -- in the heart of downtown Scottsdale! The house is surrounded and shaded by native trees. The backyard is huge, and easily accommodates a PRIVATE pool as well as outdoor dining. The 3 bedrooms & 2 baths accommodate six guests easily, with comfortable queen-sized beds in each of the three bedrooms. Two bedrooms share a full bath, & the third bedroom has its own 3/4 bath. The kitchen is spacious & well-equipped (we live here part of the year, after all). There is plenty of seating in the living room, dining room, and breakfast room. We also have a propane gas grill available for your outdoor culinary efforts. There's a large table and six chairs for comfortable outside dining in the (huge) backyard. Oh... don't forget the POOL. Naturally, we are well-equipped with Wi-Fi & plenty of TV should you decide to forego all of the nearby activities & just stay home.
We have lots of maps and informational brochures for your use. The pool and backyard are surrounded by a wall, but the pool itself is not separately fenced. You will want to keep children with you at all times.+ More
