About the property

Best weather anywhere! Sandals, shorts, warm, and wall-to-wall sunshine!!

Pack your clubs and your swimsuit ..... our desert sanctuary is perfect for golf lovers and sun worshippers alike. Challenge your friends to a round at Wildfire Golf Club’s Palmer Signature Course. Then cool off in our private pool before settling into a lounge chair for a nap in the sun. This is Phoenix living at its very best!

Perfect for an extended stay with your friends or family, this 4,700-square-foot, five-bedroom vacation rental will feel like home from the moment you step inside the grand foyer.

On one side of the house, you’ll find the massive indulgent master suite. It occupies nearly a third of the main floor and comes with a king-size bed, premium Restoration Hardware linens, an enormous walk-in closet, and a separate shower and Roman tub. Your guests will feel equally pampered by the two guest bedrooms on this floor, which are outfitted with queen-size beds and luxury linens.

The main floor also includes two elegant living areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, formal dining area with seating for up to 10, and—most importantly—access to the private backyard oasis. Spend the afternoon lounging on the covered patio with a drink in hand while your kids play volleyball and basketball in the heated pool. The patio is also lined with misters, which will keep you cool and refreshed even on the hottest summer day. Please note that the pool is heated upon request, and this may incur an additional fee.

As night falls, slip into the hot tub for a relaxing soak as the sun sets over the desert or gather your friends around the outdoor firepit. Then settle into the family room to watch a movie together. You’ll find a collection of Blu-ray movies along with the surround sound system and 52-inch HDTV.

The backyard, family room, and master suite all overlook Wildfire Golf Club’s Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. In fact, we’re situated right on the third-hole tee box, so you can watch players swing away with sweeping views of Pinnacle Peak and the McDowell Mountains in the background. This is one of two golf courses at the JW Marriott (the other is a Faldo course), making our rental a dream for anyone who wants quick access to the green.

Downstairs, you’ll find another full bathroom and two additional guest bedrooms with queen-size beds and luxury linens. The basement is perfect for kids—they’ll love the attached game room, where they can play ping pong, shuffleboard, a foosball table and a pool table or watch movies while the adults chat upstairs.

Looking for a quiet place to check your email or upload photos of your incredible vacation to social media? Our home has a full business center, which includes a computer and a multi-function wireless printer (print, fax, scan and copy) with AirPlay and “cloud” printing capabilities. We also offer Wi-Fi throughout the house.

In addition to all of these amenities, the rental is centrally located in Stonecrest, a luxury community within the heart of Desert Ridge. You can walk to the JW Marriott Resort and Spa, and there are literally dozens of upscale retail stores and restaurants just 5 minutes away at nearby Desert Ridge Marketplace. Just a bit farther drive away you will find the finest shopping and dining destination such as Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarter and the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall.

This lovely home is only missing one thing—you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've been bringing our family to Scottsdale/Phoenix every winter for 7 years. Until last year, we rented a different house every year on VRBO. And then we found this place! This is the first house we have rented more than once. You can tell that the owners really want to offer a nice experience to renters. And with the house comes the most fantastic property manager! His attitude is "how can I make these guests as comfortable as possible?" As a result, we will return every year. No need to look for another rental when we come to Phoenix!

Excellent!!! Great house, superb service!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house with a group of friends to attend the Phoenix Golf Open and watch the Super Bowl. The house is amazing, It is very big, has a lot of amenities, swimming pool, spa, game room, etc. it is very close (5 minute drive) to the Phoenix Open. John was great explaining everything in the house and following up during our whole stay, making sure everything was ok at all times. Will definitely rent it again. I totally recommend it.

The home and location were exactly what we needed for golf and spring training games. Highly recommend. John communication is on point and was hands off unless necessary to take on a request. Thanks for the use of the home!

4 of us traveled for business meeting at JW Marriott. Just a 5 minute drive and the escape of comfort and surroundings couldn’t have been better. John was a superb host - house was perfectly stocked and clean!! I would return in a heartbeat

This was the perfect home for our Arizona desert vacation. We loved the floor plan, the many bedrooms, the game room downstairs and the comfortable furnishings. The Manager, John Huntley, was only a phone call away and saw to our every need. We can't wait to go back again!

Beautiful home, outstanding guidance!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Phoenix. The home is gorgeous, spacious and full of amenities/activities. We especially enjoyed playing Ping-Pong in the game room and volleyball in the pool. The location is great, and the house manager, John, was very helpful.

I would definitely return, as well as recommend this property to all friends and family.
