A Lovely New Adventure in North Scottsdale

  • 4 of 5

This is a unique, charming casita connected to a beautiful home in North Scottsdale.

The area is quite easy to get to. The casita is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities.

The sofa and bed were both very comfortable.

The owner and hostess, Jackie, is very charming and was anxious to make sure my stay was comfortable.

Although you feel like you are in the country, its only 30-40 minutes to Scottsdale shops and many of the top attractions.

I was at West World for a rodeo for 4 days and this is a great location to stay at if you are going to events there.

I spent two days in Cave Creek, a town I love to go to. It's only a 15 minutes drive from this location!

The stars at night were amazing and if you go there, don't forget your binoculars as the views are spectator.

I really enjoyed my stay and hopefully will go back again next year.

Thank you Jackie, I appreciated staying at your casita.

Kathy, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Send your mother-in-law here!

  • 1 of 5

The description of this location was inaccurate as the residence is described as a "Casita" but rather, is a room under the same roof as the owner. Your area is separated by the rest of the residence by a door with a one-way locking mechanism, so the owner can lock you out, but you cannot lock them out.

Property seemed clean.

Owner did not provide good customer service - verbally assaulting my wife (have recordings), opening our mail (have email correspondence admitting this), and entering the premise without any notice (found dogs paw prints on the floor frequently - in fact, one of the pictures above is from while we were staying there and we DID NOT authorize entry.) Additionally, constant barking by the owner's 3 dogs followed by a prompt "SHUT UP!" made for less-than pleasant living conditions.

I would not recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Shamefully described

  • 1 of 5

1. This is not a 'casita', you are roommates with the owner and only a locked door separates the three rooms that you have from the main house. A 'casita' by definition is a free standing structure.

2. Was told by owner to 'limit' water usage including 'flushing toilet only when necessary'. Which implied repeated usage of the toilet before flushing and also to limit showers.

3. Was greeted with a pile of dog feces in the living room upon arrival.

4. When addressing these issues with the property owner I received communication that only included aggression and hostility in repeated 'stalker like' emails. VRBO was no assistance either after I communicated with them multiple times.

Owner's Response: THE KENNEDY WOMAN who wrote this horrible review is a drunk and an awful LIAR!!!! She arrived on my property , stumbling and reeking of very strong alcohol. SHE and her male companion were smoking some kind of illegal substance, which they tried to hide as I welcome them just outside the CASITA. The woman was so INTOXICATED that she dropped half her clothing on the ground, as she attempted to bring some of her it in the CASITA. I informed her that ' smoking' was not allowed in the Casita or too close to it. I have 2.5 acres so, there is plenty of space for' smokers. She got very upset with me, began to argue and plumped on the bed, nearly throwing up. I TAKE A LOT OF PRIDE IN MAKING MY GUEST VERY VERY COMFORTABLE ( please read my 4 positive reviews ) The Kennedy woman left during the night or early morning. She left a mess behing, the toilet full of excrements was not flushed, an empty bottle of bourbon on the floor by the bed, filthy towels also on the floor and a plate of left over chicken on the bed covers. I was shocked beyond belief , to SEE this vindictive filth this person had left behind. Then she proceeded to freeze her credit card charge with HOME AWAY, defrauding me of the monies she owed me. Although, HOME AWAY was very 'understanding of this sad and costly experience, they were unable to reverse the charge in my favor. I spend many hours and numerous emails with YAPSTONE, 's HOME AWAY 's crew who take care of such matters. Thank you for reading my response Sincerely, JACKIE.

Beautiful and peaceful

Jackie is a gracious and fun hostess. The casita is located in the far northeast corner of Scottsdale - gorgeous views of mountains and open skies. We would definitely return.
