Yard like a cactus garden
Beautiful large yard with a nice pool. Interior dated but clean. Truly enjoyed our stay.
A fun place to stay with lots of character.
The Cactus Cottage was a great location for Scottsdale.
Mostly ok, but overpriced
Good points - spacious kitchen and living space, quiet, pretty conveniently situated (<10 min drive to pretty much anything)
Not-so-good - the bedrooms are very dated and tired. The house had a stale smell. We arrived to 2 overflowing garbage cans on the driveway. No propane in the gas grill. Laundry detergent was absent (or locked away), they counted out the number of dishwasher tabs for our stay. No dish towels (but there were beach/pool towels).
Master bed is cold - this is not an issue in summer, but it was cool and wet a couple of days we were there and this wasn't the coziest of houses.
Place feels like max occupancy/minimum spent on upkeep type of business model. Previous stays I have had in this price category have been of far higher quality in terms of the standard of the property.
Hi Joanna, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback! Propane and laundry detergent are both included amenities with this home and we would have ben happy to supply those items had we been notified of the initial oversight. We look forward to hosting you again!
Beautiful yard and well-decorated and appointed home
Overall this is a sweet house, great decor and gorgeous yard with a pool. Plenty of space, nice kitchen for cooking and large couches in the living room. We really felt we were in a cool desert bungalow and had a great time.
A short drive to really great restaurants and art galleries, which we loved!
The house had not been cleaned when we arrived (slept in bed, piles of towels on the floor, food on the counters, etc) and it took 2 hours to get someone there and then another hour to clean up. The operator I called was helpful and the cleaning team very sweet and worked fast, but it was a hassle to show up and find it not ready for us.
Small things - the two bedrooms that are not the owner's suite face the street and do not have window blinds over the whole window because the upper part is arched but the arch is not high up; at eye level there are no blinds. I strongly recommend the owners put in a curtain or something there! And if you have mobility or sight issues, just FYI there are small changes in floor height of a couple inches several places in the home.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay - we appreciate it more than you know! We are sorry to hear that the home was not up to our normal cleanliness standards upon arrival. This is not our normal high standard that we hold ourselves to, and we hope to be able to have the opportunity to host you again in the future and impress you!
Decent place but over priced for the value.
Loved our stay and Highly recommend this house
