Canadians' Christmas Family Holiday
My husband, 87 year old father from Toronto, adult son and daughter-in-law visited this Red Mountain Townhouse for two weeks for Christmas 2012. It was a pleasant and "uncomplicated" holiday experience. Communication with the owners went smoothly and their instructions about their home, access to it, routines involving trash pick up, shopping options, etc. were "spot on". The home was spacious and clean. Each of our family group had enough "space" for privacy for the five of us with beds and a room to spare. Everything in the home worked well. The taps, the toilets, the appliances, the tv, the barbecue, the heating system, etc. Obviously, the home is kept in good repair. Phoenix is a city that sprawls and so you have to use your car in this part of the world whether in Scottsdale, Tempe or Red Mountain, if you are to get around. Red Mountain was no more off the beaten track than any of the other areas of Phoenix, as far as we were concerned. Several major highways are only within a few miles of this home and on them, you could be at the airport or Old Town Scottsdale in about twenty or twenty-five minutes. There are lovely walks around the neighbourhood with views of Red Mountain and the surrounding hills. We were also able to walk out, literally carrying our golf clubs, across the street for a challenging couple of rounds at the Red Mountain Golf Club. The neighbourhood of upscale, well-kept up houses and townhouses was quite beatiful with its desert landscaping. There was access to a heated pool in the recreational cetnre across the street and to a small pool (unheated) and hot tub which was shared among five or six other townhouses just off this townhouse's patio. The owners are thoughtful and obliging. It was a pleasure to deal with them. We all left having had a very positive experience that was "as advertised". We would recommend this Red Mountain townhouse particularly to family groups who want to have a peaceful and comfortable holiday together in a relaxed and well-operating home away from home.
