About the property

Completely Furnished 2 Br/2 Ba Steps Away From Pool And Jacuzzi

Our condo is ideally situated in The Villages. Ground floor, centrally located unit that is literally steps away from the relaxing and sunny pool area. Completely furnished - all you need to bring is your suitcase and sunscreen.

Master bedroom has king size bed, walk-in closet, dresser drawers, 2 nightstands, ceiling fan and new double sink granite top vanity in master bath. Guest room has queen size bed, desk, 2 nightstands and plenty of closet space. Both bedrooms are carpeted and open on to a small covered patio that has 2 chairs and a table and gets afternoon sun. Master bedroom also has an Spinner brand exercise bike available. Both bedrooms have double doors between them and the living room. There is a queen size air mattress along with a single mattress for additional bedding. There is also a portable crib and a contained booster seat with tray.

Open floor plan in living room gives it a spacious, comfortable feel. New recliner sofa, new wood flooring, Southwestern sideboard, tasteful artwork and ornamental fireplace make it an ideal room for relaxing. 42" TV with cable, internet, and DVD player are also located in living room. Dining table with 4 chairs for indoor dining. 2 extra chairs and extra leaves for table make it expandable to seat 8.

Newly remodeled, completely equipped kitchen with granite countertops, new cabinets, new range, dishwasher and microwave opens to the living area. Full sized washer/dryer are located in kitchen. Bar seating for 2 in kitchen. Bottled water dispenser in kitchen as well.

Covered patio off the kitchen has glass top round table and 4 chairs on a large area rug for outdoor dining and relaxing.

The pool area is literally steps away from our condo and is a great place to relax. The pool is heated and the Jacuzzi is wonderful. Lounge chairs, patio furniture, open and shaded areas, bathrooms, 2 gas BBQ's, palm trees and a huge bougainvillea make this a wonderful spot to enjoy the warm winter weather. There are 8 pools in the Villages. Pool C is 15 steps from our back door and in our opinion is the nicest pool in the whole complex as it is beautifully landscaped and more private than the other pools. There are also tennis courts and walking paths throughout the Villages.

Covered parking in front of the unit with one designated spot for parking. There are plenty of undesignated spots available as well.

About Bob Woodward/Terri Schuyler

Terri and I lived in Flagstaff for 35 years and raised our 5 children there. Terri is a massage therapist and her summer time clients in Flagstaff gradually convinced her to follow them to the Valley in the winter. We started by her staying in extended stay hotels, then renting an apartment for the winter and eventually buying this condo. We planned on winters in Scottsdale and summers in Flagstaff until 4 of our kids decided to move to Bend, Oregon, so now it's winters in Scottsdale and summers in Bend. As Terri is winding down her massage practice the new plan is more time in Bend with the kids and the grand-kids with the winter months spent in Scottsdale and exploring the Southwest in our travel trailer. We spend almost all our time with family or hiking or road biking or trail biking (McDowell Preserve is great for that). Terri grew up as an 'Air force brat'. I grew up in Indiana, but we've both called the Southwest home since 1975 for Terri and 1980 for me. Since I'm retired and Terri soon will be, the kids are grown and on their own, we are ad opting a more mobile lifestyle that we hope looks like a lot of hiking, biking, travel and plenty of family.

Bob Woodward/Terri Schuyler purchased this condo in 2010

Why Bob Woodward/Terri Schuyler chose Central Scottsdale

We like everything about living in the condo. It's quiet, peaceful and easy to take care of . The HOA takes care of all the outside maintenance, landscaping and pools, plus there's no snow to shovel or ice to scrape off the windshield in the morning! In spite of the fact that we are on the fringes of a large urban area, this area does not have a 'big city' feel. We looked at about 30 different properties before we found this one. All of them had something that wasn't quite right - too close to a noisy street, too small of a kitchen, too dated, too something, but this place was just right. It's just the right size for the 2 of us, but there's enough room for the kids or company to visit. We have been steadily remodeling and updating the condo one project at a time over the last 5 years. We have found that if you live in Scottsdale in the winter and invite people to visit a lot of people say yes.

We’re willing to work with people on payment options and cancellation fees. VRBO kind of boxes owners in on those, so don’t be afraid to ask.

What makes this condo unique

We think the best thing about the condo is the location. It's more towards the center of the complex i.e. not next to any roads, it's a quiet area but all the amenities of city living are very near. It's possible to enjoy city life with things like great restaurants just minutes away, but it's also possible to to feel completely removed from that here. The very best thing is that our condo is the only one that has direct pool access. Out the back door and about 15 steps to the pool gate.

We enjoyed our stay at this 2 bedroom condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a lot of different condo's in the Scottsdale area over the past 7 years in January & February and by far this has been the best!

It was super clean, newly renovated & very clean. It had everything we needed & was very comfortable.

We also liked that it was centrally located with good shopping areas & restaurants nearby.

The owner was very easy to work with & very helpful.

It was everything we were promised & more, based on the VRBO site.

We would definitely stay here again & highly recommend this property to anyone!

Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, beautifully decorated and inviting condo, plenty of upgrades, well maintained & equipped. Owners were a delight to deal with as were the pool "friends" we made while there for 2 weeks. Steps to pool, minutes to restaurants and shopping, easy highway access to everywhere. Close proximity to Oldtown Scottsdale, Barrett Jacksons and an easy day trip to Tombstone. Complex has great amenities, unit has everything you need. Will definitely be back. Loved it!
