About David Welch / Owner

David Welch / Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why David Welch / Owner chose Scottsdale

Purchase Dec 1 2011 because the Arizona climate and life style is where I plan to retire someday. I lived in the area 10 years ago and simply loved it.

I thought others would enjoy the property.

What makes this house unique

This home is secluded and quiet. I wanted the high end indoor features and yet be close to nature. My wife and kids wanted the backyard pool, basketball and tennis court along with other entertainment features.

Terrific home to spend some time in

  • 4 of 5

A group of 3 couples spent several days in this great home. We are regulars to the area and always utilize HomeAway homes for our stays, so we have experience in what is good and not good about homes. This ranks as one of the best homes we have stayed in. The home is clean and well maintained. The view is amazing of Tom's Thumb and sunsets were very nice to watch. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us and the pool/spa area was excellent. The owner, David, was very responsive from beginning to end. We talked before we went to the home and I also had a question upon arrival and he answered my call on the 3rd ring. He was very pleasant to deal with and even came over our second day in the home to make sure the pool was working fine. Finally, he was very quick to refund our damage deposit.

This home would have earned 5 stars from us except for 2 minor things specific to our group. First, the location is about 15-25 minutes from restaurants and shopping. If you are doing everything at the home, this is not a big deal and really isn't that far away from places when you consider how big the Phoenix area is. Comparatively, a little more removed from stores and shops than other places we have stayed but not by much. There is also not a way to control pool and spa heating onsite or via an app. We are accustomed to managing the heating of the pool and spa ourselves, but with this home you need to text David in order to have him make the changes. Again, David was very responsive but it was somewhat less convenient than what we have experienced in the past.

This home, location, and owner will not disappoint you.

Golf Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is great if you want to experience the true Arizona. We were 4 couples staying here. Plenty of space. After playing golf in 105 degree weather it was nice to come home and relax by the pool. The scenery from the patio is beautiful and breath taking. I would recommend this property to any one of all ages.

Wonderful Desert Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a family vacation for 5 days. We had 7 adults and 1 baby. There was more than enough space for everyone to have their own bedroom and bathroom. The setting was spectacular with the mountain views. We were able to golf, hike, bike, and relax. The family loved the pool and recreation court. Overall a very nice house and a great spot to get away.

Amazing Golf Trip House

  • 5 of 5

Incredible house near some of the greatest golf courses in the US. The owners were incredibly helpful and responsive. The house is beautiful and perfectly designed for a bigger group. Amazing views and outdoor space. We'll be coming back!

Amazing- Hope to return someday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled into the driveway this incredible property exceeded our expectations. The view from the back yard is breathtaking and truly surpasses the photos posted. We filled our evenings by the pool with star gazing and watching the occasional thunderstorm over the mountains. We made great use of the pool, tennis/basket ball court and of course, the golf. The house was well equipped with lots of space and activities for our family (4 kids total aged 25-11). Our kids are still raving about the amazing time we spent in Arizona this summer. Thanks to David and Ann for their quick responses and a fabulous stay. Tracy & Phil

Better than described

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything described and more. The amenities were plentiful, the house was clean, and the bedrooms were great. Additional stowaway beds if needed as well. The kitchen/living room opened up to the outside when the retractable glass wall was used. The pool was wonderful and the tennis court/basketball court/golfing green were fantastic.

Thanks David for the great stay. We hope to be back.
