Why Sandy So Benoit chose McDowell Mountain Ranch

Perfect location! This is a comfortable spacious home that can easily accommodate family and friends. It also provides great outdoor facilities for fun and relaxation, up on beautiful McDowell Mountain Ranch with views and access to trails. It is private yet steps to McDowell Mountain Golf Club where we can have our 3 meals if we decided not to cook! Further down the road (105 Street) is a pub 'Twisted Lizard', spa saloon, community centre and restaurant ...... great location!

What makes this villa unique

4 Bedroom+Media Room, gourmet Kitchen, Resort style swimming pool with spa/whirlpool, View & outdoor BBQ. Serene setting lushly landscaped w/Canterra stone fountain. Walking distance to golf course, mountain trails. Great shopping, fine restaurants and other amenities.

Outstanding home, location and owners!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our adult children and grandchildren. The home is beautiful, clean, private and well-equipped. Simple things like kleenex, soaps, spices were there for our use. We cooked every meal at home for many people with plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and amenities. The pool is beautiful with wonderful hot tub. There is an outstanding media room that kept the noise contained when the kids were sleeping. The furniture is first class and very comfortable. The home is located across from a walking trail that is paved and has outstanding views of the Phoenix area and mountains. We ran/walked the trail almost every day with strollers! The owners returned our questions almost immediately and were wonderful to deal with. We would absolutely rent this place again! Thank you Sandy and Ron!

North Scottsdale (McDowell Mountain Area)

  • 5 of 5

Our group (four male golfers) has stayed at the Scottsdale Desert Villa at least five times, and this house is perfect for us and 'checks all the boxes'. You do need a car, but the location is great as our jumping off point to head out to golf each day, and restaurants, supermarkets, and shopping are near by. We all have our own bedrooms (one lucky person 'wins' the master with a massive bathroom), two TV areas and overall spacious living space. The backyard with pool and spa is very nice and quiet and we took full advantage of the spa (not the pool) to soothe our backs, and to have a cold drink or two.

We fully recommend this property and are planning on 2019 return.

Great location, great views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable and well appointed house. The owner was very responsive and pleasant. The house had everything we needed. The location was very convenient - 20 minutes to everything. McDowell Mountain Ranch is a wonderful neighborhood with paved walking paths nestled in the mountains right outside the front door. We enjoyed the backyard, the pool and spa and the convenient location near the golf course.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that our guests enjoyed our property as much as we do, the wonderful location and the comfort. Just arrived Scottsdale yesterday..... away from the cold & rain back home in Canada! We are going to replenish and continue to update our property to make it even more comfortable for us and our guests:)

Our second stay at this lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so happy to have another opportunity to stay at this beautiful home! We stayed 5 years ago, it was one of our favorite VRBOs ever, and we hoped to return. This time it was my husband and I, our 2 adult children and our son’s fiancée. The home is spacious and comfortable-we used all of the bedrooms, which are lovely, cooked all meals in the wonderful kitchen. There is plenty of living space with the large kitchen/family room/eating area, media room and outdoor spaces so that we could all spread out and enjoy time together and also enjoy some privacy when desired. One of the features we love about this home is the ability to walk across the street to both the Javelina and Taliesin Trails which are beautiful and which we used daily. The home is walking distance (about 2 minutes!) from the beautiful McDowell Mountain Golf Club where we enjoyed a drink one evening. Sandy, the owner, and Reinherd, the manager, are very easy to work with and very responsive. I hope we are able to stay at this beautiful home again!

One of the nicest, equipped rental we have had. Nice location too

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, well stocked, clean, nice location, easy access to everything. The adjacent javelina trail was a big plus. Did have some problems with the spa heat. The property manager was receptive.
