Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Scottsdale Troon - Scottsdale Rental

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

You will think you are at a luxury hotel...Relax and have a glass of wine with good friends, family and guests by the warmth of the outdoor Kiva Fireplace which is surrounded by a lovely Travertine terraced area. Or slip into, and enjoy your heated Pebble-Tec pool complete with a rock ''Waterfall'' feature. When it is time to really relax, take a spot by the pool on your chaise lounge chair and allow the tranquility inducing sound of the rock ''water feature'' to take you away to a serene babbling brook. If you need a more robust water-fall sound, just raise the flow rate - you decide how you want to relax!

While in your home for your extended stay, you will enjoy an impeccably maintained and very clean property that is almost 3,000 sq ft of living space and all on one floor. The 4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath home is an open floor plan between the Kitchen, Family room and Breakfast area. CLICK ON 'AMENITIES' TO READ MORE

The Master Bedroom, which has a private entrance to the pool area, is tastefully decorated in a South Western theme and has a bathroom that is typically found only in luxury hotels.

Outfitted with his & hers closets and sink areas, Jet-spa tub and a large, free-standing glass enclosed, tiled shower, you will be in no rush to leave your bathroom when heading out. There are two additional bedrooms that are tastefully outfitted, each with a Queen size Bed. The Fourth Bedroom has a single ''Hideaway'' bed, with the room serving as an in-home office as well.

Your Rental Home is situated in the much desired section of Northeast Scottsdale, better known as Troon (Troon North and Troon Village). The area is renowned for it's uniqueness of topography, beautiful vistas, great golf, fun, and easy resort living.

When relaxing by the pool area or Kiva Fire Place, you will notice your own private Saguaro Cactus-bed complete with prickly pear cactus and other Sonoran desert indigenous plantings. The landscaping is artfully completed and is only surpassed by the all-encompassing views: Look straight ahead and you are looking at the beginning of the beautiful McDowell Mountain range. When you look to your right you will find yourself awestruck and perplexed by the unusual mountain and rock formation that is truly a work of nature. We 'locals'' simply know it better as, Troon Mountain.

When you are tired of just relaxing, then it is time to enjoy the many outdoor activities inherent to the area. The hiking in the area is phenomenal. Take a 1 hour (up and back) walk from the base of Pinnacle Peak to the observation area to take in the outstanding views. Pinnacle Peak is 'Family Friendly' and easy for all.

Or indulge your need for varying degrees of challenge and exercise by taking a more rigorous hike on one of the many trails in the McDowell Mountain Regional Park. The biking is great in the area as well!

If it is golf you are looking for then you have found the place with some of the best golfing anywhere. Each year, Troon North Golf course's Monument and Pinnacle courses rank number 1 and 2 for best public courses in Arizona and it is only a 4 minute drive away! Within a 30 minute's drive you will find scores of excellent courses from the much acclaimed TPC Scottsdale to the incredible views of We-Ko-Pa. You will be challenged, but you will never be bored playing the many great desert courses that the area has to offer.

Scottsdale is known for it's eclectic, casual and fine dining.

ABOUT THE OWNER:

Hi! My name is Chris and I am the co-owner of the property that you are considering for your rental in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. I want to tell you a little about me to help you become familiar with the person that you will be trusting do deliver a great vacation home and family memories, all at a great price.

My wife and I, and our two adult children live in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

I am an avid golfer, hiker and runner. In addition, I like to relax in the warmth of the Sonoran desert when it is time to unwind from my busy Wealth Management practice in which I am a partner.

As a long-time fan of the desert southwest, my family and I have been traveling to the Phoenix / Scottsdale area twice per year for the last 14 years. We fell in love with North Scottsdale 12 years ago. The hiking in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Cave Creek are wonderful as well as some of the scenic views that you take in while running in the area.

The shopping and great restaurants keep me and the family busy when we are not relaxing by the pool or taking in the nature of the High Sonoran desert. We often will do a day trip (north, to Red Rock / Sedona or west to Prescott or south to Tucson). Either direction affords us a change of scenery all within a two hour drive. We have even done a long weekend in Las Vegas via driving (including seeing the Hoover dam!)

Our long-term goal is to eventually live in Scottsdale from January through April to escape the cold of the Northeast. Until that time arises, you will have the opportunity to enjoy our lovely getaway destination.

Chris Clavin purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris Clavin chose Scottsdale Troon

The area around Troon Mountain is very special to us. The 'Big Sky' environment of the Sonoran desert, combined with great views, interesting flora and wildlife, is second to none. Additionally, the great hiking and golf along with fun, lively, casual and fine dining as well as excellent shopping make the area a perfect destination. Lastly, the wonderful year-round and 'snow bird' residents who mostly came from (or come from) the midwest make this a friendly place to live and visit. This property gave us all of the above but what this home gives us specifically was a view of both the McDowell Mountain Range and of Troon Mountain in a quiet, private, cul-de-sac. Such a great location!

What makes this house unique

With excellent Hiking, Golfing, Shopping and Fine and Casual Dining, the area of North Scottsdale is an absolute must for someone looking to just relax and take in the breath-taking views or to take in everything that Scottsdale has to offer.

Our home is an added bonus to the beautiful area in that it is tastefully appointed and between the single-floor plan living, large kitchen/family room and the inviting patio/pool/Kiva fireplace area you never have to leave if you want to just enjoy yourself and family and simply relax.

The in-house office with High speed wireless internet & wireless printer, allows me, my family and guests to stay connected to work and friends yet still be removed from the daily routine and be able to enjoy ourselves. The property is set up to truly be relaxing both inside and out. The Large 'U' shape sofa can accommodate our family and friends if we are all watching a movie or sports on the 55 inch wall mounted Flat screen LCD TV. And the Patio, Pool area (with Rock 'Water' Feature) and Kiva 'Beehive' Outdoor Fire Place is perfect for sitting outside and taking in the Arizona sunsets.

Great place for our winter getaway

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I absolutely loved the house..exceeded our expectations! Everything was clean and in working order. The worst part was my wife not wanting to leave and insisting we make an offer to buy the property!! An added bonus was several javelina showed up in the front yard one night. Pretty cool to watch them...we were unaware there were such animals roaming wild. Feel like we hit the jackpot with this house...Chris was very helpful too

Better than Expected

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed a week and wished it was longer. We had an amazing time. This house was beautiful, clean and better than we expected. great location! We have stayed in many vrbo homes, and you never truly know what your in for until you get there. This house is so wonderful, the minute we walked in the door we felt very comfortable. Chris was extremely attentive to everything, and available at any time. He called us a couple times to make sure we didn't need anything. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much Chris.

Just returned from a stay in this spectacular house - a stylish and beautifully-maintained home in a stunning setting (we had actually looked at renting the house for past holidays, but it had been unavailable for our dates!)

Chris provided superb and seamless service throughout, from our initial rental enquiry and right through the rental period itself, and he replied very promptly to any questions we had.

We have rented many homes in the US over a period of years, and this was right up there with the best!

Perfect Vacation Destination

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I cannot stop raving about our experience at this property. The pool is a fantastic oasis with wonderful features and our teens loved both cooling off and playing in it. The house itself is immaculately kept and is even better than in the photos. Very comfortable, homey and well decorated. We really enjoyed movie night with the home theater set up when it was just too hot to be outside. We found the area to be full of both great outdoor (hiking, biking, golf, etc) and dining and shopping options. There are fantastic dining options only minutes away when cooking in the lovely kitchen isn't what you want. The owner, Chris, was a virtual concierge prepping us in advance for activities and ideas for what to do while staying. He continued to be very available and helpful throughout our stay. We absolutely, and whole heartedly, recommend renting this property no matter what your plans are while in the Scottsdale.

Owner's Response: Wow Eric, What can I say about your review? Calling me a virtual concierge and that I am accessable throughout your stay was one of the nicest compliments that I have received as I really do aim to please and to make things as easy and comfortable for our guests. It is awesome that you found the same things that we like about our home and sunny Scottsdale in general (Golfing, Hiking, Bike riding, Dining, Beautiful vistas, etc.). We look forward to your return as soon as you are ready! Thanks, Chris C. (co-owner)

Great Place For a Family Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful home, great location in North Scottsdale, and stunning views. My wife and I and five children stayed for a week over the 4th of July. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone - with kids of any age - for a vacation. We spent most our time in the pool or on the patio. The pool area is very private with views of Troon Mountain. It was hard to leave. A truly 5 star experience. Thanks Chris for a great time!

Although leaving our home was hard to do as you had stated, be comforted in knowing that we would love to have you as guests again next year! See you soon. Chris C. (co-owner)
