Overview

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!

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing time. The house was as advertised, accommodations were above and beyond our expectations. Plenty of room for all 8 golfers, the pool, jacuzzi was perfect after playing 36.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a large home to accommodate a group of folks.

Fantastic property which easily accommodated our 3 generation family spring break.

  • 5 of 5

A terrific all around experience. A prompt response(call) from John, the manager, upon booking followed by similar attentiveness during his arrival greeting and throughout our stay. The property, with the unique lower level, was great for communal gatherings in the informal great room/dinette/kitchen, which was well supplied with kitchenware. The locations of the bedrooms and baths allowed for sufficient privacy in the evening. The master suite was much larger than photos could capture. The patio had all we needed for daytime playing and evening relaxation. We barely noticed the tee box activity behind the property and appreciated the open feeling it provided. The lower level game room provided a nice diversion for the grandkids. Would definitely stay at this property again.

Always a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed in this lovely home before and we'll do it again.

It's perfect for a group and so well set up. It's spotlessly cleaned, very well equipped and well maintained. The staff leave lots of things in place (eg sunscreen) to make it easy on travelers

The manager John, is flexible and responsive - always helpful

We thoroughly recommend this lovely home
