Bedrooms 12
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

12 bedrooms/ 5 baths with additional murphy bed and four twin beds

Make your visit to Arizona an experience you will never forget with your own private resort. There are 3 custom built homes and 4 cowboy style bunkhouses located on a very private 1.5 acre lot in prestigious North Scottsdale surrounded by the best golf courses, shopping, and restaurants in the state. We are less then 10 minutes to some of the top golf courses such as, Troon North, TPC (Phoenix Open), The Boulders, Grayhawk and Wildfire, just to name a few and we are 35 minutes from the Cardinal Stadium. These homes are ideal for large groups, reunions, golf groups and corporate meetings.

(Main House) This unique custom built feng shui 5 br/3 bath (sleeps 10) home has 15 ft. ceilings, adobe brick walls, indoor fireplace, authentic Mexican furnishings, stained concrete floors, surround sound inside and out, TV’s throughout and much more. Outside there is a large covered patio with two satellite TV's, Linx BBQ grill, bar, fireplace, 2 propane heaters, fire pit, and even a large rock fountain. The views are incredible, and the white lights in the lush landscaping make it look like your own private resort. It also has an eight-person hot tub for you to relax in, and the views from the tub are stunning.

We also have turned our three car garage into a Man Cave/Entertainment room with a 60' TV, 46 ' TV a Brunswick pool table, ping pong table, dart board and a X-box with Kinnect. . The decor gives it a southwestern, barn, sports bar feel!

We also have two authentic Adobe brick guest homes on the property for larger groups. We conduct retreats on this property so there is plenty of beds/bedding to assure that your guests are comfortable. This home is great for entertaining because of the large gathering areas and yet very comfortable for your guests to have their own space. Each unit has a full kitchen, high speed wireless internet, washer/dryer, and access to the 8-person hot tub overlooking the beautiful palm trees, and saguaro cactus landscaping.

You will feel like you stepped back into the old west when you partake in our newest creation of a 'Western Town' with four additional bunkhouses. The first bunkhouse is 80 sq. ft. It has a queen size bed, tiled flooring, ceiling fan, heat/AC and a roof top deck.

The other three bunkhouses are 120 sq ft. All the bunkhouses have wood flooring, a large six foot window that opens to the desert views and a cowboy flare. Two of bunkhouses have a queen size bed and one bunkhouse has a twin bed.

(Small Casita) There is a 1-bed/1 bath Casita (1200 sq. ft.) that sleeps 4. It has a large open floor plan with 20 foot ceilings, all new appliances, rustic wood cabinets and doors. A California king pillow-top sleigh bed in the bedroom and a high quality queen size Murphy bed in the living room. It has a large covered patio with BBQ, bar, fireplace, bonfire pit, and propane heater. A 60 inch HD TV with surround sound.

(Large Casita) The larger Casita is 2-bed/1 bath (1800 sq. ft.), which sleeps 4-6.. It has a large gourmet kitchen and large bedrooms, indoor fireplace, and large TV’s throughout. Outside is a 100 ft wrap around patio with couches, dining table, outdoor fireplace, propane heaters, and incredible sunset views.

If the thought of staying in a cheaply-made, poorly decorated, small yard, on top of your neighbors, condo or sub-division home does not excite you, this is the property for you. This property is truly one of a kind and you'll even enjoy the landscaping which consists of hundreds of the plants, trees and cacti that make Arizona such a beautiful place to visit.

This is a beautiful upscale property in one of the nicest areas in the state and we only accept respectful tenants who behave accordingly. We do not allow weddings, bachelor parties, or rowdy groups.

About Nicole Amodeo

Matthew, Delanie and I have been a family for 17 years after meeting and marrying in 10 days! We beat the over/under bets to say the least! Matthew and I were motivational speakers for 15 plus years, it required a great deal of travel so we have experienced renting dozens of homes. Some good some bad. We learned first hand what makes a rental property feel more like a home and decided to rent out our home when we were on the road. We have now retired from speaking and moved back home yet even when we took our home off of vrbo our guests kept calling asking if they could come back. It's now just the two of us, our daughter has moved on and it just makes sense to share this property. We love sharing our home with people and providing a beautiful environment for people to create wonderful memories.

Nicole Amodeo purchased this house in 2001

Why Nicole Amodeo chose Arizona

This property allows you to be together with friends and family and yet have your own private space. The layout is wonderful because there are central gathering areas and also private 'little pockets' throughout. It is absolutely a beautiful setting and you will see we have fully utilized the entire property.

What makes this house unique

This is our private home, it has a 'lived in' feeling and everything you can possibly need.

Amazing spot for a variety of vacations

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 16 golfers had an amazing time at this impressive rental. Nicole and Matt were amazing and very accommodating for our big group. (as far as supplying multiple whiteboards for our golf handicaps!) The property has a ton of room throughout the property and tons of things to do. The chipping course was great, the fireplace was great (it was chilly), the hot tub was great and the scenery was amazing. This was our 14th golf trip and this rental comes out in the top spot...that should tell you how great it is!

Hahn 2016 Reunion Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic vacation spot for our group to enjoy our biannual reunion. We are a group of over 20 veterans that were stationed overseas over 30 years ago. Many of us hadn't seen each other since that time. This was a perfect place for us all to come together with our families in great fellowship and catch up catch up for a few days in a semi private setting that comfortably housed all of us. Very cool!

Awesome Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

I was choosen to host our Bi-Annual military reunion for a group of more than 20 and I thought it was going to be a task finding a place to accommadate this group. I found this custom home with 2 guest casitas's and 18 hole chipping course with extra bunkhouses and inquired to the owner our wishes and she said we have plenty of room for your party and it seems like the right fit for us. Guess what, she was right. We step foot on the property and was blown away by such a great theme and beautiful grounds. It has everything you can or would think you ever needed. Some of the highlights were the putting green, man cave and the numerous patio's. I really felt like a rock star for finding this place but the credit belongs to the owners who are so generous to allow vacationers to experience such a beautiful home. If you have a large party this is indeed the place to settle down in. From the first request to the last person left we were all blown away. Thank You Nicole and Matthew we really enjoyed ourselves during our stay on your property.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say I haven't had a vacation in years and I couldn't of asked for a better one for my military family reunion. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to fellowship. It was more than enough room to hold us all comfortably and enough space to get away but still be within reach. This property will be etched in our hearts cause it was filled with love. This home away from home was everything. We thank you and our host for finding us a little "peace' of heaven on earth....ONE LOVE #hahnfamilyreunion

Beyond my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

I would like to personally thank our host, as well as the owners of the resort we stayed in for our Bi-annual reunion. It was magnificent, and that is an understatement. Words just don’t seem to justify all the beauty of the estate. We had a party of about 20 or more and everyone was extremely happy and comfortable with all the amenities this place had to offer. Ever step I’d take was a picturesque moment.

Owner's Response: That is so awesome! Thank you for all your beautiful comments. We have worked really hard on this property and for you to notice all the corners and little pockets of beauty that has been thought out down to the details just makes my heart sing!!! It is so difficult to capture this place with photos, yet I'm kinda happy you can't because when people like yourself arrive they are just blown away! Thank you again for sharing your experience with us.

Beautiful property, with enough room to accommodate a large group of people. I stayed here last weekend. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a family atmosphere and homie feel. Words can describe. I would stay here again. P.s. loved the put put course.

Downtown Cave Creek and Carefree is just 7 minutes north of the property. There are many unique shops and restaurants in Cave Creek with a Cowboy feel and a Mexican twist. A truly unique experience that you will remember. North Scottsdale is just 10 minutes South of the property where you will find many upscale restaurants/ night clubs and shopping. If you are a golfer, this could be considered 'Heaven' with over 12 courses less then 10 minutes from the property. The Boulders, Troon North, Grayhawk, Wildfire, Desert Mountain and the TPC (Phoenix Open) to name just a few. You are less then a mile from the Tonto National Forest, where you can walk the trails or rent dirt bikes. Hundreds and hundreds of acres of beautiful Sonoran Desert views to take in. Sedona is an hour and fifteen minutes from the Property and is a wonderful day trip that will stay in your memory bank forever! One of a kind shops, unbelievable views and and an incredible golf course called 'Sedona Golf Resort' It must be one of the top places to visit on Earth, a must see and I imagine on many 'Bucket List's.' You are welcome to rent a Pontoon Boat and visit Lake Pleasant which is less then a half hour from the property and spend the day on the lake with views of the Desert. This is just a few options, the location of the property is ideal for privacy and yet so close to so many Arizona attractions. The back patio of the Main house is a favorite spot also!
