About owner/property manager
We both grew up in Minnesota and currently live in Rogers, MN today. We both went to the same college in Wisconsin, but actually met through friends after. We had a baby boy in September of 2017. It’s our first! We enjoy going to our cabin in northern Minnesota to boat, play cards, fish, and hang out with friends and family. We are looking forward to spending time at our Scottsdale condo.
owner/property manager purchased this Condo in 2017
Why owner/property manager chose North Scottsdale
We took our first vacation together to Scottsdale in 2016 and absolutely fell in love with the place. We went there for our one year anniversary. We enjoyed hiking the mountains in the morning (yes, we made it to the top of Camelback Mountain), laying poolside in the day, and trying out new restaurants by night. We searched properties for several months and then found the Venu at Grayhawk. We waited until a unit we liked went on the market and then went into contract after the first three days it was listed. There are five main reasons we bought this condo: 1. Amenities - the condo has a resort style atmosphere with the pools, clubhouses, and workout facilities 2. Location - we love North Scottsdale as it has a more upscale/new vibe and it's close to golf courses, dining, shopping, events, and the 101 Loop 3. Condo upgrades - it's sometimes difficult to find a condo with upgrades; one reason we chose this condo is due to the new granite countertops and stainless steel appliances 4. Poolside - we love that the pool is right in front of our unit and it provides both privacy and poolside views 5. Walking paths and park - there are several walking paths in the complex and within the Grayhawk master community; we love that the park is only a few minute walk and we can go there to play pickelball

Our stay was fine, as advertized
My wife and I thought the unit we rented was "as advertised". Everything needed to "live" in the unit was included. The community dinners were outstanding-not to miss. We very much enjoyed them.
Our only complaint was there was not enough open parking. We could not invite friends, children or grand children over as there was no place for them to park. We were able to rent an extra space which was fine for us but not enough to entertain which limited our enjoyment
The owners were great-responded immediately to a couple or minor issues. Also, the owners employ a local person to handle any immediate problems. That was very reassuring.
We are glad the unit was as advertised!
Bill and his wife were great tenants. We touched base several times and we do wish that they voiced their concern about the parking to us during their stay. Peak season in Scottsdale is more crowded and that does impact guest parking. We would have gladly worked on a solution to provide extra parking such as renting another parking space free of charge.
Great place to stay
We really enjoyed this unit. Clean, well stocked with kitchen items. Quality of linens, towels and cookware is great. Huge tv was perfect for sports. Complex was very nice. Pool area was beautiful and so convenient.
Thanks Wieske! We are glad you enjoyed our condo!
Cozy and Quiet
This unit is exactly as pictured. The complex is a short walk from the grocery store and dining, and the A/C works great! The balcony has a nice view of the pool but is still quite private despite being in a large complex. This unit was fully stocked with day to day items, right down to cotton balls and swabs in the bathroom. A great option for couples as the bedrooms are separated by the living space.
Thanks Stephanie! We are glad you liked how we stock the unit!
Excellent spot for a quiet getaway!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! Everything we needed was right there at this unit, and the pool located only a few steps outside the front door was a dream. This would be a great spot for two couples to get away, as both bedrooms offer king size beds and private baths. We are already looking forward to planning our next trip to this spot!
Thanks Erica! We would be glad to have you and your husband back anytime!
Very nice property, great location
Very nice property, with great location for pool. It didn't have an iron or ironing board so I called the owner. Within 1 1/2 hrs. I had BOTH. The A/C stopped working, again called JUDI and she had it taken care of in a short time.They were very responsive to all my questions. I would
stay there again when in the area. The only other thing is the parking is about 50 yards from apt. The apt. is on the 2nd floor.
Thanks Ko for the good review! We did decide to time how long it takes to get to the garage and it is less than 60 seconds. Also, we have started renting an additional outside parking space for select months.
Condo Exactly as Advertised!
Two of us couples visited the condo to get a week of golf in. The description of the condo is exactly as advertised! We loved that the pool was within steps from our condo and the balcony was still very private. The furniture is high quality and brand new. The two king beds were very nice as two of us couples stayed there. We also enjoyed the large 65 inch TV in the family room. The condo was nicely updated with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Wifi was provided. The kitchen was fully stocked. Quality towels and linens were provided.
We really enjoyed the location and neighborhood in upscale North Scottsdale. The Venu community is well maintained and has all the resort type amenities anyone would ever need (pools, hot tubs, club houses, workout facilities, chef, gate access, etc). There are several walking paths within the beautiful Grayhawk community. We enjoyed playing golf at the Grayhawk golf course just a couple minutes away. The owners were extremely helpful and called more than once to check on us to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be going back to this condo. Thanks Paul and Colleen!
