About Sandy So Benoit

My husband and I love traveling spending time in new locations while enjoying the comforts of home.

Sandy So Benoit purchased this villa in 2012

Why Sandy So Benoit chose Scottsdale

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!

Property Was Perfect for our Long Weekend Get-Together!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the beautiful Scottsdale home with 2 other couples and a single. The accommodations were terrific for the 7 of us. The pool and spa were highlights. Additionally, all our cooking needs were met and or exceeded. The 4 bedroom layout was perfect for our get-together as was the location. We'll be sure to come back for a return visit. Thank you for sharing your home!

Very clean property and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The location of the rental home is perfect. Situated within a 5 minute walk from the golf course as well as various hiking trails, there was never a shortage of things to do. As well, the property was well-equipped with utensils, pots/pans, towels, and basic toiletries. The weather was perfect to just sit by the pool and have a beer! The home was very clean and well maintained as was evident upon our arrival, and the owner was easy to communicate with. The rooms were quite large and can accommodate a lot of people comfortably. We will definitely be staying here again.

Another Excellent Stay

  • 4 of 5

April 2016 was our third year in a row at this N. Scottsdale property and it was once again an excellent experience. The home checks all the boxes that our golf group needs starting with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, two separate sitting/TV areas, great pool/spa area, and quiet neighborhood. The house is a short drive to all that you would need in golf, shopping/supermarkets, and restaurants. Sandy, the property owner is very responsive and helpful through the entire rental process. We are already planning our 2017 return!

I booked this property along with a friend in March 2015 for February-March 2016. I was clear that there would be my friend, whose name I provided and with whom the Owner was aware she had spoken, and me along with our husbands on the reservation. The Owner voiced no concern with this arrangement and we proceeded with the reservation process. We promptly exchanged the contract agreement naming my friend and me as well as our husbands and families. Both my friend and I, and the Owner signed the document. There was no mention of any issue with the agreement or arrangement.

Prior to arrival in Phoenix, I contacted the Owner to tell her that our co-renters would arrive before us and that they would be the contact people. She told me that she preferred to speak with me only. This was of significant inconvenience since I was not at the property but rather at home at work. The Owner refused to acknowledge the co-renters as included on the reservation despite reminders that they were in fact party to the legal rental contract.

Cleanliness and location are priority for us. The cleanliness of the property was of issue. The location was excellent, most notably due to the accessibility to hiking. The layout of the house worked well for two couples sharing and the indoor furnishings were comfortable. The pool was lovely once it was cleaned and we enjoyed it a great deal. There were no extras, unlike many properties in this price range, no pool accessories/loungers, fire table, sound system, bikes or sports equipment. The outdoor furniture lacked comfortable loungers, coffee/cocktail and side tables. The fountain at the front door was not operational and was dirty. It would be an appreciated feature if it were cleaned and functioning. The property did not appear prepared for the arrival of guests. Some of the patio furniture and many of the kitchen supplies are tired and could use review in order to replace or supplement the deficiencies. A thorough spring cleaning of the house is in order.

Owner's Response: Guest's comments well noted. However, as it is a large party with maximum # of people different families, we did request in writing (Jan 12/16) that we prefer to deal with only the Booking person. There is nothing we advertise are not included. We have NEVER advertised fire pit/table, nor sound system, bikes or sports equipment of which we don't have. We do have a few loungers, and have recently added more casual chairs, new silverware (Mikasa), new patio cushions, new linens. Our Canterra Fountain at the front door has been fixed and running beautifully, thanks for letting us know.

Will not be Back!

  • 1 of 5

This home is not as well equipped as described! Our rental contract was for 8 people staying in the home, however, cutlery setting for 6 and only 4 pool.towels are a couple of examples of inadequate supplies! The finish worn off the metal strainer, used pot scrubbers left under the kitchen sink, cracked and faded plastic patio dishes in the cupboards are a few more examples of a poor quality kitchen that brought us to go out and buy some supplies of our own. It took 6 days to get a response from the property management company to supply more toilet paper!! The home was not clean to detail, cobwebs on the window ledges, dirt on the tops of the baseboards throughout!

Even though the yard looks nice in the photo's, we arrived on a Saturday to a dirty pool that did not get cleaned til two days later, dusty patio furniture that we expect would be clean for our arrival, a metal broken chair left out at the outdoor dining table that we luckily noticed before cutting ourselves, only ONE small worn out side table for the 8 of us to set our drinks on, hard white plastic lounge chairs with no cushions, the list goes on and on!

For the premium price this owner charges to rent this home, it is not worth it! Further, the owner is rude and insulting, even though there were 4 adult names listed on the rental contract, she refused to communicate with all 4 of us and would only acknowledge one of us as a contact person!

The location of this home is great, however, we will NEVER rent from this owner again! I have pictures to back up all my comments, we do not agree with the other reviews - we rented this home for a total of 4 weeks in Feb./ 2016

Owner's Response: We would NEVER rent to this party again. The fact of the matter is we HAD DECLINED this booking as we were not comfortable dealing with the party under the name of Murchison. We knew the way the questions and language used, we would never be able to please them, so we declined. A week later a party under a DIFFERENT NAME inquired. Not knowing they were connected, we accepted the Booking. Only then we realized the Declined Party was behind, and their name on the Rental Agreement among the guests. The nightmare began. The DECLINED Party arrived (in the absence of Booking Party), and started criticizing every single things......and asked for waiving cleaning fee and more incentive........ We are Canadians, live in Canada. We are pretty humble people. Our local property manager is very responsible and well respected, his company has been in business in Scottsdale for over 30 years. Our cleaner Lynda takes pride in her work, has a master degree, but chooses to run a small cleaning business. Both of them responded to the guests IN WRITING Feb 12 before the Booking Party arrived. Our property provides exactly what is described, if not more. The truth is there are 4 white lounge chairs and 4 beach towels plus over a dozen large baths towels........We have pool company to clean our pool on a WEEKLY BASIS. We NEVER over-stated anything in our description, AS EXEMPLIFIED BY OUR PREVIOUS GUESTS REVIEWS.
