Fantastic Outdoor Pool/Spa

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a huge house with plenty of bedrooms and baths, this is a super place to stay for golf groups or six couples. We rented it twice this year - once for a golf group of guys from Wisconsin and again with six couples. Everyone loved the house - especially the heated pool and spa and outdoor BBQ. Robert is an attentive host who is always available to answer questions and take care of any concerns throughout the week. The house is located two miles from shopping and dining - Spinatos Italian has great pizza and salads, Albertsons is right across the street from Spinatos and the Blue Adobe Grill next to Albertsons was a fun New Mexican Santa Fe eatery. Taliesen West is a mile away and offers an interesting tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and architecture school. The house was a perfect home base to use for both groups before golf, Talking Stick Casino treks, spring training games at Salt River Fields and dining up in DC Ranch Definitely will rent again when we come back to Scottsdale.

great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The best thing about the home is that there is a bathroom for every bedroom! We had a large family reunion (12 people) and fit very comfortably. It was a great home base for exploring the Scottsdale area. Everyone had a blast.

This was a repeat visit for our golf crew. Robert's house is a perfect fit for 8 guy's who need ALOT of space. The house was very clean and everything was up to date. The location is perfect, close to restaurants, golf courses and shopping. Would definitely recommend working with Robert and staying at his home!!

Great Scottsdale Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was a great setting for our multigenerational family Christmas trip. The location is ideal for a getaway to the Scottsdale area with easy access to all major roadways. The house was large enough that everybody had their own space for some quiet time or to interact as a group in one area. The kitchen is well stocked and has all the necessities for meal preparation with a large group. The outside area is private and has ample loungers and chairs. The pool is quite large and the hot tub had enough room for our group. We enjoyed many afternoons in the sun sitting in and around the pool as we had above average weather during our stay in December. The guesthouse was an ideal place for entertaining and playing pool. Most rooms have a single bed along with a twin or queen. Ideally it would have been nicer with two twins or queens in each room for those who were paired up in a room. Robert was a great host and replied to any question before or during the stay promptly. We would highly recommend this property and we will be back in the future!
