About Wendy Hollinshead

My husband and I recently moved from our long time home in Calgary Alberta Canada to our new home on Vancouver Island Canada. We love the island but do long for the sunny days of Phoenix as the winter months roll in. Our Phoenix travels first took us to the Mesa area and just this year we found Old Town Scottsdale with all of it's wonderful amenities. We love the free Trolley bus that takes us from our beautiful condo into all the incredible art galleries, shops and restaurants that Old Town has to offer. This summer my husband and I travelled down to our condo and spent 6 weeks having it renovated and furnished. We love the result of having a brand 'new' condo located in an area of Scottsdale celebrated for its history and culture. We hope you love our home away from home as much as we do and enjoy all the Old Town has to offer.

Wendy Hollinshead purchased this condo in 2009

Why Wendy Hollinshead chose Old Town Scottsdale

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We bought our condo because of it's amazing location. We are 5 minutes drive from the 101 and our condo development backs onto the Continental Golf Course. There is a 20 mile walking/biking path that meanders through beautiful ponds, baseball diamonds, and parks for picnicking are only steps from our doorway. Only three blocks in the other direction you will find the eclectic and fun filled Old Town area that will captivate you for hours, if not days with its numerous art galleries, trendy restaurants, pubs and shopping. Spending a day at the Fashion Square Mall is another favorite activity for visitors from all over the globe. When we were looking for a condo to buy, we searched all around Scottsdale but choose the Old Town area because of the unique character and ambience of the area.

What makes this condo unique

We love the welcoming and comfortable plan of our condo, the comfortable beds, the luxurious furnishings and quiet location of our unit. We are located 12 steps away from one of the development's beautiful pools and BBQ areas and a short stroll to the incredible fitness facility that you are invited to use. Please view the Sunscape website as it will no doubt sell you on the area as well. We are positive you will enjoy our spotless condo with all its comforts of home. As you enter the front door you will understand the great pride of ownership my husband and I have for our condo. We are confident that you are sure to return for another visit on your next holiday south.

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped. Large pool, which was nicely heated for our 12/10-12/18 stay. Good view of pool from unit. Large clean unit with large dining room table. Overhead fans and lights on remotes. Wi fi had a few drops but overall decent. Good big TV. Can walk to old town but probably a mile or so, and did so several times. Would stay here again. Thanks, we enjoyed our stay very much.

Far from "Luxurious"

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I traveled this January to the vacation rental in Scottsdale, Arizona. When we opened up the door of the unit, we were dismayed by the odour and condition of the unit. It smelled of smoke and staleness. The dining room table is covered in permanent watermarks and spills, the stove top is worn out, the carpets are matted and packed. There was dust covering all of the furniture. The bathtub needed a good scrub out. This was hardly the luxurious, beautifully renovated condo of the photos and VRBO listing. I immediately phoned the owner and we relayed our concerns that this condo was not suitable for us and that we could not stay here and wanted our money back. The owner refused to refund any of the rental fee we had already paid to her in advance via Paypal. We then came to a mutual agreement that she would re-list the condo onto VRBO and any money that she was able to rent out would come to us to mitigate our loss. I have the email stream of communications regarding this agreement. She was able to rent out the unit for 2 weeks of our rental period and has now refused to refund us this money. So, to summarize, we arrived to our rental and it was not suitable. The owner and myself and husband agreed to a solution which she has backed out of. I ask you, have I been treated fairly? The owner did not act in good faith, and double dipped off of our loss. Beware.

Owner's Response: A vacation is a very precious time and I take my role in the rental of our condo very seriously. Our condo has given many people a wonderful restful time in this very special area of Old Town. My primary concern is our guests' comfort and their enjoyment of Old Town. When a traveler commits to staying with us, communication begins. I connect several times prior to their stay. I call upon arrival to make sure they are settled in and happy with the condo. Any requests or concerns are dealt with immediately. I do understand our guests arrive after a long travel day and expect certain things. Obviously this guest had an expectation that was unfulfilled by our condo. Unfortunately, their issues could have been solved with some cooperation but they would not allow me any chance to address their concerns. I was expected to refund them all their money because they had made other plans. I pride myself in dealing fairly with all of our guest's needs. However, there is nothing an owner can do when the guest will not cooperate. I offered to pay for a night in a hotel and have them meet our cleaner the next day but they refused. I gave them some of the rental money back. This was still not good enough for these guests. They were rude and beligerant. I was threatened with legal action. Given that I was under no legal responsibility to issue a refund of any kind, I decided that I would not reimburse all of their funds. I think the positive reviews I have had over the past 7 years attest to my commitment to our guests. I have issued refunds to many people whose plans change. I most certainly would not do so when treated in a rude, disrespectful manner. Our condo is clean and comfortable. We keep all linens fresh and make sure it is well stocked and spotless. We do not allow smoking or pets so there is no possibility of smoke smell. The condo did not have dust That being said, there are some scratches on the smooth stove top and some water rings on the dining table. The carpet, while not new is cleaned every two months and was cleaned just before their arrival. I know from having several repeat visitors that our condo is a lovely place to spend your vacation. I hope all prospective guests understand this one unfortunate situation. It has been very upsetting to me but I still enjoy dealing with all the lovely people that continue to book our condo. Thanks to all of our repeat guests. I continue to enjoy helping people make their vacation time wonderful.

Comfortable Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at the condo and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was very comfortable - it was exactly as pictured and described. It is part of a large complex - but the location by the pool was very handy for morning sun (the pool gets busier as the day goes on). The location of the complex was excellent - it was nice walk to Old Town and we enjoyed a couple of the restaurants in the area. The condo was close to the airport and had excellent access to the freeways - so getting around was very easy. Wendy was great to deal with - she was very responsive right from our first inquiry through to return of our security deposit. She clearly cares about the quality of the condo and ensuring her guests have a great stay. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Optimal Scottsdale location

  • 4 of 5

We fully enjoyed our week stay in this condo. It was easy and pleasant communicating with the owner for booking. The best feature for this condo is definitely its location. Sitting on the greenbelt with miles of walking/biking paths and an easy 10 minute walk mostly on path right into old Scottsdale is very appealing. For the activities we had planned (urban hiking, camelback and squaw peak, shopping, touring the universities, eating out at the amazing plenitude of outdoor patio seating…) This condo’s location couldn’t be beat.

The inside is very clean, comfortable, stocked with everything including pool towels, and tastefully decorated. The ceiling was higher than expected for a condo.

The pool was a giant hit with my teenage daughter, who spent every moment of her “down time” there! It is sparkling clean, perfect temperature and the lounge chairs are inviting and comfortable. The pictures accurately reflect the pool atmosphere.

The grounds around the complex are clean and kept up exceptionally well. A lot of flowering bougainvilleas, oleanders, palm trees and grass squares.

The neighbors are very quiet, never heard any noise at all from them or even down at the pool being so close, it never got very rowdy or noisy.

The only negative comment I have is although an optimal location, the street noise is bothersome for sleeping. The unit is very close to a 6-lane busy street which crosses with another busy street. The noise was hardly noticeable anytime just hanging out at the home, however, for sleeping, when all is quite, it was a bit much. After the 2nd night, I picked up some earplugs and was able to sleep better. I am not a particularly light sleeper, just not used to hearing street noise at night.

I recommend the owner invest in a couple of new Adirondack chairs and a small table for the balcony, which is a lovely place to sit.

Bottom line: Thumbs up! A great experience!

Favorite recommendations to share for inviting outside patio dining: the best overall experience was El Chorro, (for a special occasion) following would be Olive and Ivy, The Herb Box, Ritas at The Camelback for happy hour, Tommy Vs Urban Kitchen had excellent Italian but the patio seating was not as gorgeous as the others. My daughter and I really enjoyed driving up to the outdoor shopping malls Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland Commons.

Great stay again

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this condo and we intend to stay again. The unit was clean, well equipped, and in a great location within the complex. The clubhouse for Continental Golf Course is a five minute walk away and Old Town and miles of walking trails are easily accessible. We were able to communicate with the owner whenever anything came up while we were there and anytime throughout the year before our stay. The location overlooking the pool is ideal for both pool use and to access BBQ and picnic facilities.
