Guestbook comments from the owner

We’re back in Canada, safe & sound & freezing cold!!! Wanted to say thank you for such an amazing experience! All 17 of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! What a gem your place is! We felt like we were on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!” Everything was so beautiful!! Our first night with Christine as our chef was wonderful!!! Thank you for treating us to her services, she’s lovely & we had such a fun night!! It was great to not have to cook! The kids just loved their bedroom set up! They got such a kick out of each having their own “quarters.” It was so wonderful for everyone to have their own private space, yet plenty of meeting areas to congregate. We loved enjoying a couple of dinners outside in your new seating area you built. Then it was great to all sit in the living room around the fireplace to visit afterwards when it was cooler. Everything was sensational & splendid.

Great Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Super cool house. We were a group of 7 women and this house was perfect for us. It was much bigger than we needed, but we all enjoyed having our own space (lots of it!). Very comfortable beds. There is some disparity in the bedrooms, so we found the lottery system worked well. I drew the short straw, but still enjoyed my room very much. Our favorite feature of the home was the outdoor living room--so lovely. The location was excellent with everything we wanted to get to within an easy drive. We found Robert to be great to work with. He was very helpful, providing tips for hiking, etc in the area. We utilized the services of Sarah to cook a dinner and 3 breakfasts for us. She was wonderful! We enjoyed both her cooking and her company. We also had someone (Kyna, recommended by Robert) come into the home to do a private yoga class for us. Delightful! Next trip I'm booking her for Thai massage!

This house would be ideal for a family reunion, as there are several wings of the house with their own kitchens and sitting areas connected to the bedrooms. If I am back in the area with a group again, I would absolutely stay here again.

Our family reunion of 16 people fit with ease in this large home, with plenty of privacy for all.

It felt like an old world escape right inside the heart of the city. The pool and veranda are the highlights. We had a delicious meal prepared by Chef Christine. The Owner was delightful to meet, and was discreetly available immediately for any questions we had. The house is so well stocked with anything you could need. Each of us enjoyed our stay, young and old alike.

Wonderful family reunion for 14

  • 5 of 5

The property was spacious, with plenty of room for everyone. We loved the back patio area, and the heaters made even December pleasant in the evening.We had more than enough beds and bathrooms (and hot water) for all 14. Thanks! The location is very handy, with hiking trails a short drive from the property.

Perfect place for large reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for a large college reunion of 15. Location was close to the airport & centrally located near restaurants, golf, hiking, and groceries. High walls gave a sense of security and privacy. Enough room for everyone to spread out and still did not use all of the space! Place had five kitchens/fridges and only utilized two. Amenities were as advertised. Catered meal the first night was perfect. Wi-fi was below average, but a few wi-fi extenders placed around this 10,000 sq ft house could fix that. Took full advantage of the heated pool, outdoor living room, and grill. We really didn't have a lot of demands, but Robert and Sarah were very accommodating to whatever we wanted. Wish now, we could have rented another 1-2 days to take better advantage of the central location. That's the real selling point with this property, 15 minutes to everything (including the airport). Wouldn't hesitate to rent again!

Perfect Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 17 girls stay at Robert's home in April. It was so nice to have more than enough space (bedrooms and bathrooms) to comfortably fit so many girls. The mornings were spent in the kitchen, days were spent out by the pool and the evenings in the family room playing games and chatting. The location is perfect....10 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Old Scottsdale, 10 min WALK to LGO (great place that you should all check out - and Postino), 10 minutes to several hikes...but none of this is needed b/c you won't want to leave this home. Robert and Sarah were so amazing to work with. They were there to welcome us and see us off. It truly felt like a vacation which is much needed for a group of moms!

Best Friends 50th

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this historic home. We were a group of 16 friends and this house suited us to a T, very well appointed, excellent grounds to walk around and visit and a beautiful HEATED pool that made for some great entertainment.

Robert was excellent to deal with and very fair in every way. The location is great, about 10 minutes from Old Scottsdale, Fashion Square Mall and a lot of really wonderful restaurants and bars.

Although the home sits in an older part of town with a lot of houses around it, once you pull into the private gates the huge walls surrounding the property provide a very private setting. This is not a new home, but it is kept very clean, has all the appointments and provides tons of room to socialize as a group or meander off for some solitude.

Roberts manager (Sarah) was attentive and there when required ( we really had very few issues) and his hostess Judy was excellent as well! Our 'Chef's night in' was awesome, it came with our booking and we took it on the first night which worked out well, it gave us the rest of the week tackle the leftovers and allowed us to settle in to the home and relax rather than worry about cooking dinner or getting dressed to go out.

The house is amazing and a maze. I was there for 5 days and I know there are rooms and places I still had not seen, at every turn there was a new discovery and some really interesting items for anyone interested in history.

I'm comfortable that this house could accommodate up to 12 couples easily and everyone would have ton's of room, places for privacy and great grounds to enjoy the Arizona sun.

Highly recommended for groups like ours. If you are looking for a home base at good value to accommodate a large group look no further.
