Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Scottsdale - Casa Hopi

3,200 sqf, one level, 4 bedrooms, heated pool, BBQ, desert garden

We are in a secluded neighborhood that embraces the desert experience. Our house sits on the most private and best cul-de-sac lot surrounded by natural desert on three sides. It is scenic and peaceful with desert views.

Split bedrooms provide separation between the master bedroom and the rest of the house. This is a light and airy house with tons of glass in the family room, kitchen, dining room and master bedroom, overlooking a desert oasis yard. The covered patio and built in BBQ complete the pool area as a place to mingle or just relax. And of course this house is in impeccable condition, completely renovated with love.

This property is exceptionally well located just off Scottsdale Road, yet presenting an uninterrupted desert view with privacy. Within 10 miles you will find 18 golf courses, including Troon North and The Boulders. If you tire of playing golf why not attend dinner at the Four Seasons or enjoy the scenery at Blue Martini?

This property has a lot to offer everyone, whether you are an avid golfer, nightlife aficionado, mountain or desert hiker, or just want to linger by the pool with an Edgar Allan Poe.

Note that we do not advertise on Craigslist! Don't fall for scams!

About Håkan Söderbom

This is us, Kay and Håkan. We bought our Scottsdale house in 2012 as our second home and planned retirement home. When we are not at Casa Hopi we are either on the road or at our offices in Seattle, WA. We are both in the IT industry, which is also how we met a long time ago; Kay and Håkan worked for a US software company in the UK and Sweden respectively. After living together for several years in London we were both transferred to the corporate headquarters in the US. We have since left the company to continue our careers elsewhere.

Håkan Söderbom purchased this house in 2012

Why Håkan Söderbom chose Scottsdale

We had a range of criteria for our house, the first that it should have good privacy with views and still be close enough to shops and conveniences. We think we found the perfect property in a well manicured community that embraces the desert experience but still less than 2 miles from high end shopping.

What makes this house unique

Our home is situated at the end of a cul-du-sac with the largest desert garden and desert on three sides of the house. Desert hiking and biking start behind the property and within 10 minutes drive there are over 15 golf courses and hundreds of miles of trails.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with stunning gardens and a fantastic pool. Everything in the house and pool area is of a fantastic quality and has everything you could ever want or need in a home. The surrounding desert is so nice and within easy reach of Casa Hopi. We have been to Arizona twice before this and this by far has been the best vacation home we have stayed in. We would so recommend this property to anyone visiting this beautiful area and hopefully we will return again.

Brits. review of Casa Hopi - March 2015

  • 5 of 5

We spent the whole of March at Casa Hopi and were joined by our son and his young family for one week whilst there.The property is exactly as the website portrays, modern,very clean and with all the amenities which you hope for and are delighted to experience.

It is situated at the end of a cul de sac overlooking a desert landscape with regular views of the indigenous wildlife from the pool and patio area.

It is far enough away (approx.15 minutes) from Scottsdale to enjoy the local landscape without being isolated and is only a few minutes away from excellent grocery stores, pharmacies, banks and golf courses.

We would certainly recommend it for young and old alike and very much hope to return.

Midwesterner's point of view of Casa Hopi

  • 5 of 5

This property was modern, clean, convenient to so many things north of Phoenix, Az. It has a great pool and wildlife access. We saw a cayote, Bobwhites and other indiginous creatures. The property is on the end of a quiet paved road but is minutes from grocery stores, pharmacies, banks etc. It is 15 minutes to Scottsdale proper. It is an hour and a half to wonderful Sedona. The grand canyon and other sites are not so far. Great property at a great location! It was a wonderful winter break for people from the northern midwest.

WOW – what a home *****

  • 5 of 5

We rented Kay & Hakan’s home for our vacations in Scottsdale, not have been happier and easily accommodated somewhere else. The vacation home is enormous, has a lovely pool with new BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating. Inside loads of kitchenware, awesome TV, everything we needed, very excellent equipped. The property was clean, highly recommend this rental. Around the doors had been traps against vermin cruising around in the dessert. We definitively stay here again, if we make it back to Scottsdale. Thank you very much, appreciated the hospitality and welcome gifts.

Relaxing Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at CasaHopi, where do I begin. I loved the beautiful floors, decor and awesome view! As a bird watcher I was thrilled with being able to see the verdin, phainopepla, curve billed thrasher and pyrrhuloxia, among others, daily. After a day of golf, hiking or Spring ball games our family reconnected by the gas fire pit outside by the pool to some music, choice of beverage and conversation. The pool was just the right temperature and the house was well stocked. If we don't find a place of our own we would absolutely come back!

Scottsdale Vista Estates is located in the very north part of Scottsdale, away from the hustle and bustle. Now you probably think you have to go far for shopping and restaurants, but nothing could be further from the truth; the difference is that up here in 'the north' we value the genuine desert experience so the the low-slung shopping centers are hidden away behind trees and cacti to provide that serene feeling of being in the desert, even though the ice cream shop is just around the corner.
