Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Scottsdale - Casa Hopi

3,200 sqf, one level, 4 bedrooms, heated pool, BBQ, desert garden

Please note that we do not advertise on Craigslist. Any ads on Craigslist or any other 'free' services are not by the homeowner.

We are in a secluded neighborhood that embraces the desert experience. Our house sits on the most private and best cul-de-sac lot surrounded by natural desert on three sides. It is scenic and peaceful with desert views.

Split bedrooms provide separation between the master bedroom and the rest of the house. This is a light and airy house with tons of glass in the family room, kitchen, dining room and master bedroom, overlooking a desert oasis yard. The covered patio and built in BBQ complete the pool area as a place to mingle or just relax. And of course this house is in impeccable condition, completely renovated with love.

This property is exceptionally well located just off Scottsdale Road, yet presenting an uninterrupted desert view with privacy. Within 10 miles you will find 18 golf courses, including Troon North and The Boulders. If you tire of playing golf why not attend dinner at the Four Seasons or enjoy the scenery at Blue Martini?

This property has a lot to offer everyone, whether you are an avid golfer, nightlife aficionado, mountain or desert hiker, or just want to linger by the pool with an Edgar Allan Poe.

About Håkan Söderbom

This is us, Kay and Håkan. We bought our Scottsdale house in 2012 as our second home and planned retirement home. When we are not at Casa Hopi we are either on the road or at our offices in Seattle, WA. We are both in the IT industry, which is also how we met a long time ago; Kay and Håkan worked for a US software company in the UK and Sweden respectively. After living together for several years in London we were both transferred to the corporate headquarters in the US. We have since left the company to continue our careers elsewhere.

Håkan Söderbom purchased this house in 2012

Why Håkan Söderbom chose Scottsdale

We had a range of criteria for our house, the first that it should have good privacy with views and still be close enough to shops and conveniences. We think we found the perfect property in a well manicured community that embraces the desert experience but still less than 2 miles from high end shopping.

What makes this house unique

Our home is situated at the end of a cul-du-sac with the largest desert garden and desert on three sides of the house. Desert hiking and biking start behind the property and within 10 minutes drive there are over 15 golf courses and hundreds of miles of trails.

WOW – what a home *****

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Kay & Hakan’s home for our vacations in Scottsdale, not have been happier and easily accommodated somewhere else. The vacation home is enormous, has a lovely pool with new BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating. Inside loads of kitchenware, awesome TV, everything we needed, very excellent equipped. The property was clean, highly recommend this rental. Around the doors had been traps against vermin cruising around in the dessert. We definitively stay here again, if we make it back to Scottsdale. Thank you very much, appreciated the hospitality and welcome gifts.

Relaxing Perfection!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family loved our stay at CasaHopi, where do I begin. I loved the beautiful floors, decor and awesome view! As a bird watcher I was thrilled with being able to see the verdin, phainopepla, curve billed thrasher and pyrrhuloxia, among others, daily. After a day of golf, hiking or Spring ball games our family reconnected by the gas fire pit outside by the pool to some music, choice of beverage and conversation. The pool was just the right temperature and the house was well stocked. If we don't find a place of our own we would absolutely come back!

We loved Casa Hopi

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Casa Hopi for a long girlfriends weekend. The home is beautiful and the kitchen is well equipped. The house is off a main road but on a quiet street; it's easy to get around town. The owners were very patient to answer our questions and were very welcoming. We would definitely rent Casa Hopi again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks! We are very happy that you had the opportunity to make good use of our well equipped kitchen that has most everything needed for cooking, baking and entertaining. You probably noticed that most of the equipment had never been used before. Your tips also helped us add a few missing pieces!
Welcome back to Casa Hopi for a longer stay in the future!
Note that we recently changed our minimum rental period to 30 days in order to conform to the City of Scottsdale policies.

Gorgeous home with everything included!

  • 5 out of 5
Just got back from 7 days in Scottsdale and we were lucky enough to pick this house for our accommodations. We had 4 guys doing a golf trip/ Phoenix open and the house was amazing. Not only for it's style but the #1 thing we loved was that it had everything you could ask for in a home. From all the condiments for making your dinner, to a few beers in the fridge when you got there and even sun screen for by the pool and even a skype phone for calling back home. There was tons of room and everything was very comfortable, lots of towels, and it was very nicely decorated. Very comfortable. Great hosts and everything was very well communicated and as expected. Would stay there again in a heart beat! Thanks for having us!

Loved Casa Hopi!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I meet up with our friends from Iowa each year somewhere for a vacation, and this year we chose Scottsdale and were lucky enough to have found Casa Hopi! First, let me say that Hakan and Kim were so easy to work with and very accommodating. Secondly, their home was absolutely perfect for our vacation. The house is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It was amazing to just lay on the raft in the pool in complete peace and quiet! I often hear people say it doesn't matter where you stay on vacation because you are never really there. Not true in our case. We and our friends spent much of our time lounging by the pool, having cookouts, and enjoying the beautiful desert landscape. The home is every bit as beautiful as the pictures that are posted. The kitchen is very well equipped. We also enjoyed the music that plays throughout the house and out at the pool area. It comes on automatically each afternoon. There are restaurants and stores nearby. They have an information center in the kitchen, and we picked up menus from the local restaurants to add to it. We have nothing but the very best memories of our visit to Casa Hopi. It was one of our best vacations ever! I hope to stay at Casa Hopi again when we visit the area.

Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Exceptional home! We travel often and live at a Four Seasons property. Wanted to escape from the city for a family vacation but did not want to give up the luxury of what our residence provides. This home exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully decorated -combined with the pride of ownership made our trip a 10 out of 10! We spent 90% of our time lounging poolside listening to our favorite artist on the sonos system. If this property is available on your vacation dates, book it.

Owner's Response: What a fantastic review! Many thanks for comparing us to "the cream of the crop". We are definitely striving to provide that little extra that makes a vacation memorable. We would love to see you return to Casa Hopi.

Kindest regards
Kay & Håkan

Scottsdale Vista Estates is located in the very north part of Scottsdale, away from the hustle and bustle. Now you probably think you have to go far for shopping and restaurants, but nothing could be further from the truth; the difference is that up here in 'the north' we value the genuine desert experience so the the low-slung shopping centers are hidden away behind trees and cacti to provide that serene feeling of being in the desert, even though the ice cream shop is just around the corner.
