About the property

4 Bedrooms 3.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 8-10

We have the perfect home in the perfect location!.

Our beautifully renovated 3500 sq ft 4 bedroom 3 bath home is tucked in a beautiful, private one acre lot at the base of Black Mountain in North Scottsdale. Enjoy magical panoramic views, native saguaro cactus, iron wood and palo verde trees, sweeping mountain views, sunsets, and incredible wildlife— howling coyotes, bobcats, and javalinas add to the tranquility of this beautiful private setting.

Then, when you’re ready for fun, just a block away you can walk from the home to the “one of a kind” famous cowboy town of Cave Creek. Country bars, saloons, line dancing, and even watch a cowboy ride a bull!! Some call it the 'Home of Cowboys and Caviar, Where the Old West Meets the New'….

Dining? Oh yeah! From the five star experience at Binkley's (formerly of French Laundy) to Cartwirght's steak house to the famous fried Chicken at the Buffalo Chip. There's something for every palette! One of our favorites is the beautiful outdoor setting at Tonto Grill, a great spot after day of golf at Rancho Mana.

Golf.. our home is located between several world class golf courses.

The Boulders,Troon North, Quintero and Greyhawk, and Rancho Mañana just to name a few.

Spa's. Scottsdale is known for it's world class spas. five minutes from us is the Boulders, home of the Waldorf Astoria, (Formerly Golden Door). The Boulders sits at the base of a 12 million year old boulder outcropping. Truly spectacular. Or, try the Four Seasons, Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain. Relax and rejuvenate!

This area north of Scottsdale is away from the crowds, yet close to all of the daily conveniences you may expect. Grocery stores, saloons, pharmacies, boutiques, medical care, and major chain stores are all within a few miles but completely out of site and out of mind reinforcing this natural setting.

From the moment you arrive you'll find Spanish touches throughout our home.

You enter through the gates into the spacious entry courtyard with a wood burning kiva fireplace and flagstone patio. Around back is a pebble tec swimming pool with walk in beach entry. You can even bring your drinks and enjoy sitting at the Acapulco swim up bench with a built in table top.

Our home has views in every direction and there are three outside decks to enjoy them. From the living room enjoy views of Black Mountain as it changes colors throughout the day! Barbque from the deck off the kitchen and enjoy the desert and bolder views. Finally, sunsets! From the dining room, enjoy our amazing desert skies!

Our newly remodeled kitchen is ready for the ambitious chef! Fully equipped with all your cooking needs. Our Spanish dining table has seating for 8. Or, curl up in the living room and enjoy the wood burning kiva fireplace.

Our home offers two levels. The top level has the living room, dinning room, kitchen and master suite with jetted Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The lower

level has 3 bedrooms, plus a den, 2 full baths and it's own kitchenette. So, your downstairs quests wake to their own coffee, in their own private oasis! Two of the downstairs bedrooms have queen size beds, and one with twin beds. The den has a sofa bed. We have new electronics throughout. The living room has a 50' flat panel cable TV. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV's with built in DVD player. DVR's capability.

High speed internet access

We've tried to provide everything you'll need for a comfortable stay from new linens and towels, to a fully equipped kitchen.

Our beautiful spacious home is an easy 50 minute drive from the Sky Harbor Airport, and 40 minutes to old town Scottsdale. It's an easy drive to Spring Training, Barrett Jackson, the Arabian Horse Show, The Fiesta Bowl and all the other great area events!

And, have we mentioned all the other outdoor activities?

The Black mountain hiking trailhead, is 3 minutes from our house. Hot air balloon rides, Sedona is 1hr and 46 min., Bartlet Lake, bicycle rentals, Jeep tours,shopping, art galleries, museums, equestrian events and the many art shows.

About Nina Friend

My husband is an Architect and I love interior design! We have been vacationing in the Scottsdale and Cave Creek area for more than 20 years and love the area so much that we decided to purchase our 2nd home here. When we saw this home with the majastic scenery and with the amazing views and so close to the surrounding restaurants, art, golf, we fell in love!

Nina Friend purchased this house in 2014

Why Nina Friend chose Arizona

Perfect Location! This area of North Scottsdale is away from the crowds, yet close to all of the conveniences of daily living.

A Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything, from extremely comfy beds to an amazing kitchen to numerous decks for outdoors quiet to a gorgeous pool! And so much more! Indoors, the furnishings everywhere were pure Southwest style and there was nothing missing. Well-equipped kitchen, plenty of dishes and pots, outdoor grill, outdoor fireplace for toasting marshmallows. Master bedroom had an amazing shower with jets going in every direction and an amazing jacousi-type bathtub. Two bathrooms each, upstairs and down, each uniquely decorated. And, of course, everything was very, very CLEAN! My children and grandchildren enjoyed the ample accommodations downstairs and enjoyed gathering upstairs for family meals around the large dining room table or the outdoor veranda table. Comfy leather sectional around an incredible tree-slice coffee table from which to watch the large-screen T.V. Wonderful spot on the opposite deck to watch the sunset over Black Mountain.

So much to do in the environs, even though we hated leaving the house! Hiking and horsebacking riding in the two nearby Maricopa County regional parks, bike riding in Brown Ranch Preserve, fishing on Lake Pleasant, jeeps into Tonto National Forest, bull riding at the arena in a nearby restaurant, wonderful Mexican food. Baseball games and a casino trip (for the adults) in Phoenix, a visit to the unique Musical Instrument Museum, and a ride north to Sedona. We were here for two weeks, one with the older grandsons and family and another with the younger granddaughters and family and there was always something exciting to look forward to, although each family enjoyed different activities. But we all enjoyed what to us from the Northeast is the very unusual vegetation and had fun learning the names of the different cacti. Watching the birds fly back and forth to their nests in the saguarro from the side deck was the best! Jackrabbits, roadrunners, quail all paid us a visit.

Thanks Nina and Paul for sharing your wonderful home! And for the special welcoming touch of great coffee and lovely wine!

Perfect vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful home for 4 weeks in April and could not have asked for a better location to enjoy time with family and friends. This home is beautifully decorated and well cared for - including everything you need for a desert vacation by the pool. The views from the veranda, porch, deck and pool are peaceful and the perfect spot for the morning sunrise and watching the stunning sunsets. We hosted several family and friend gatherings and the kitchen was a cook’s dream, We especially loved the private areas where guests and those with small children had the benefit of separate quiet space and bathrooms. The bathrooms are new, clean and full of the amenities a traveler needs. The beds were very comfortable with our guests commenting on what a peaceful sleep they enjoyed while visiting. The pool was a big hit with our adult children and grandchild. The property is appropriately remote from neighbors yet walkable to nice hiking trails, local library and shopping. And finally, the owners Nina and Paul are very attentive and its evident they work hard to ensure a terrific vacation is experienced. We loved our experience here and are already booked to return next year.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Los Amigos Hacienda and I will definetly be back again next year. We love

this house! The hiking trail up Black mountain was just minutes away, the view were breathtaking! The beautiful

sunsets, the home is perfectly located just walking distance to one of our favorite bars "Buffalo Chip". Even Sunday morning "Church at the Chip". The owners were so easy to talk to and gave us information on our trip to Sedona.

The outdoor fireplace was perfect to sit and listen to the coyotes at night! Thank you again for a wonderful vacation and we will be back next year.

Wonderful holiday in a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better place for our family of 8 to spend a holiday get together in Cave Creek. Home is so beautiful and spacious and located in a quiet area but close to everything in a fun town. Mountain views from everywhere and grandkids especially liked hiking Black Mountain trail a block away. Being December we were unable to use the fantastic pool area because of cool weather but would love to return with family to experience. Owners were very pleasant and we thank them for sharing their beautiful home with us.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house and this town! We go to Arizona often to watch football (go ASU and Cardinals) and Spring Training baseball games, as well as just to vacation-golfing, trips to ASU, etc. This was our first time renting a house and we did it with another couple and their kids. So four adults and four teens and Thanksgiving. The house was great! The downstairs is all bedrooms and bathrooms with the upstairs for the master and the rest. The living room accommodated us all for movie night! The dining room was perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen is great! We had to fight over which couple got the master and which had to stay downstairs with the kids. There a balconies all over and there are beautiful views! It was too cold for the pool, which isn't heated and there is no spa (which it says in the description) so there was no swimming for us. The location was great and we took the path into town at night to play!

The town is so fun with lots to do-cute and quirky shops, bars, bull riding (although the Buffalo Chip burned while we were there-glad we got to go on it's last night. So sad it's not there now though, such fun! Hope they re-build).

Great time with lots to do! Beautiful house with all you need and more!

Also, owners were very sweet and great with communication! Easy to get in and out and they were kind to let us check in early!

Loved it!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a spacious, beautifully landscaped getaway spot, this is defiantly the perfect place! It's located in a very quiet, surreal area that is only blocks away from excellent restaurants, boutique shopping and entertainment. The house itself is beautifully decorated and incredibly well maintained. Relax or dine on one of the four spacious balconies over looking the beautiful surrounding landscape or swim in the built in pool. Anybody looking for that perfect southwest getaway location, this is the place for you!
