Pool/Spa Heater, Casita & Views
We enjoyed the pool and the spacious house.
The only thing we would of liked to see done differently was more control of the pool, we liked the waterfalls on because it kept the water circulation going. The cleaning pump didn’t seem to be working so the waterfalls were the only thing keeping the water somewhat clean.
Awesome vacation spot! Read review for full comments and information.
We only had a few minor hiccups, which were addressed quickly. Jon and Wendy were super-responsive. The house and casita were clean and inviting. This amenities were as described. There were more than enough supplies in the kitchen (cooking utensils, spices, coffee filters, blender, grill utensils, dishwasher pods), bathrooms (towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash), and laundry room (laundry pods, bleach, beach towels, extra sheets).
The house comes with a two-car and a one-car garage with remotes, so we were able to come and go through the garages. I have a Honda Pilot and had no trouble getting it in the double side. The single side had the hot water heater, etc, so it only took the shorter car.
The house comfortably sleeps: 2 in the master king, 2 in the queen bedroom, 3 in the twin-over-full room (a smaler-sizedl room) and 2 in the casita king. The two couches are comfy if you need to sleep 2 more people.
This house is in far north Scottsdale. It is about 20 minutes to the grocery store and nearest Starbucks, but the views and
privacy more than make up for it. The second-story deck has 360* views of absolutely stunning landscape. The neighbors directly behind the house have a few dogs, but they aren’t barkers, and when they did bark, the owners were super-fast to bring them in. We read reviews of people being able to smell the horses in the area (one in the back and some across the street in the front). One day we did smell ‘horse’ which was actually more of an alfalfa smell than a horse ‘clumps’ smell.
The house and grounds are laid out to have plenty of space and privacy so everyone can have their own downtime, if needed, and yet it has wonderful areas to come together as family and friends to talk and play games.
We would definitely return to this property. A lot of wonderful memories were made here.
We had a good time

Amazing desert home base
We enjoyed this house so much that both sets of grandparents are already planning to come back next year. We are an outdoorsy family drawn more to hikes than downtown attractions, so we really enjoyed the proximity to hiking, biking, climbing, and horse back riding activities. The best part, though, was sitting on the back patio listening to the pool while staring out over the desert. It was so peaceful. The house is quite spacious and had everything we needed (although it could use sharper knives like every other rental house). The kids loved the pool, which gave the grown-up plenty of time to chat. We used the fire pit a lot in the evenings too. I highly recommend staying here. I'm sure we'll be back.
Thank you Sarah! We are glad you enjoyed this this desert tranquility escape as much as we do.
We welcome you and your family back anytime!
Great house - beautiful location!
Great house in a beautiful location! There were a few issues with the house, but the manager took care of them right away. We were impressed with his prompt response to every one of our requests. We had a fantastic time!
