Overview

About the property

2 Master Suites, Walk to Scottsdale Fashion Square, Salt River Fields, Old Town

Location, location, location!! Fantastic Scottsdale location close to Old Town Scottsdale restaurants, shopping and night life. This quiet neighborhood affords a very peaceful stay with plenty to do very close by, just off Chaparral Road and Miller Road. Tucked back in dead end streets and cul de sacs, it's a wonderful neighborhood.

Our 1600 sq. ft. town home has a cottage feel decorated with a lovely blend of vintage, classic, and traditional styles making it feel like your home away from home... There are 2 well-appointed master suites with decidedly comfortable bedding and pillows, 2 full baths and walk-in closet.

The front bedroom has a queen bed, night stand, chairs for a reading area, armoire, dresser, double closet with plenty of room and hangers, and a small flat screen tv. The bathroom can be closed off for privacy and use only by the guests staying in the front bedroom, or opened to the front hallway for other guests to use. The bathroom has a full shower with views of the atrium.

The back bedroom has a king bed, two night stands, seating/reading area, triple dresser, Hi-Def flat screen tv, separate walk in closet, double sink vanity, and separate toilet and shower/bath room with wonderful views of the atrium.

Our home has 2 internal atrium's that allow bright light indoors and vaulted ceilings for a very spacious feel.

The dining area has a nice large table, chairs, and cabinet bar and plenty of bar ware for entertaining.

The kitchen has a large pantry complete with cooking and picnic items, plenty of cookware, utensils, electric skillet, blender, toaster, coffee maker, panini press, and new appliances.

The washer and dryer are conveniently in the garage, right around the corner. The two-car garage provides room for 2 vehicles or extra storage.

There is a wood-burning fireplace, private patio with gas grill, patio furniture, and umbrella.

Enjoy the high-speed WiFi internet with an extra power boost wireless router for extremely fast service. Hi-Def televisions with Hi-Def cable tv on quality flat screen televisions in the living room and each bedroom. There is a DVD player with a really fun selection of great family and classic movies. Take the portable CD player / radio with you to the pool / hot tub area and use some of the provided CD's if you wish.

The heated pool and spa just steps away. Enjoy the cruiser bikes that I've provided on the miles of walking / biking paths that stretch along the Scottsdale Greenbelt, within walking distance. Renown Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall is just down the street, the newly built Salt River Fields and everything good in Old Town Scottsdale are neighborhood amenities.

Adjoining the Arizona Canal Trail and greenbelt, walk or bike the 12 plus miles of multi-use trails. Chaparral Park and Community Center is just 1/4 mile away with a 100-acre park, lighted tennis courts, basketball, volleyball, soccer fields, picnic areas, playground, and stocked fishing lakes.

The Chaparral Dog Park is only 1/2 mile away and shopping, dining, and golf are also very nearby. Minutes to the San Francisco Giants Stadium, Chicago Cubs Stadium, Arizona Diamondbacks Salt River Fields, Mayo Clinic, ASU, several casinos, and Sky Harbor Airport.

Couldn't have asked for anything better...

  • 5 of 5

During a remodel of my 90 year Uncle's home, my husband and I, and my Uncle, were looking for a place to call home. How fortunate we were to come across this gem! The patio house is just as it's described, only more comfy than words can describe. The 2 bedroom suites had lots of room, comfy beds, beautifully decorated. The amount of natural light was so inviting. We had everything we needed and Jackie and Mike were incredible hosts. We were able to call this place home for a short time, and highly recommend it. The pool is just a very private one minute walk away and a place we visited nearly every day of our stay. The pool is heated just enough to be refreshing and soothing here in the desert. The kitchen had everything we could want, having a garage was wonderful, the neighborhood was quiet and we felt completely safe to take walks, ride the bikes that are available in the garage. Perfect! Would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to just about everyone. Thank you Jackie & Mike. You made our stay at your patio home so much more than we first anticipated. After 40 years in one home, even sweet Uncle Bob felt completely at home here.

Great place, Great service!

  • 5 of 5

With a great location & nice neighborhood, we felt safe & secure at this home away from home! Jackie went above & beyond what one could expect - she was quick to address any concerns we had too! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great location. Cab ride from Old Towne was only about $8.00. It's about a 45 minute walk, so if you walked there & were too tired to walk (or carry all of your packages back), it was an affordable ride! Thanks, Jackie!

Perfect Location and Perfect Host

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home for my mom's 80th birthday - she lives in the neighborhood. It was perfect. Jackie was the perfect hostess. My entire family met her for the check-in and she was incredibly gracious and helpful. She checked in to be sure everything was fine. The home is bright and comfortable. Swimming pool was perfect for kids. Running in the AM on the canal was fantastic. Bicycles in the garage were perfect for touring Scottsdale. We couldn't have asked for any more. Highly recommend staying here.
