About Steve Aaker

Originally from Seattle area, work took us to Montana. My wife and I got tired of the cold. searched for year looking for just the right place. not really city people, the property here in north Scottsdale fit us the best. Some of the worlds best Horse trainers are just a couple miles away, as we are into Reining Horses, and my wife competes all over the U.S. The drive in can be a little bumpy at times, but once you are here, the dessert beauty and quiet makes you forget. We live next door in the main house with our Son and 2 small dogs and one large dog. they are very friendly, and only bark to sound tuff. Its hard to beat the Arizona, weather, people, and activities right in our back yard.

Steve Aaker purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Steve Aaker chose Scottsdale

We chose this property, as we are country folks, who need room. This property had a small barn, and 2.8 acres, and we have fenced and did lots of upgrades. What was the biggest selling point for us, is once relaxing in the back yard, you see no other houses, only a great view of 4 peaks. seems like we are all alone out here.

What makes this bungalow unique

It did not take long to find out that living out here had huge benefits. we immediately bought RZR's, (UTV's) and Quads, and a bass boat, as we can ride the off road vehicles right from our house, almost 3 million acres can accessed from our back door. Lake Saguaro, and lake pleasant are a short drive for some great striper fishing. Trail riding with your horses are as easy as saddling up and going. Lots of biking, weather its Mountain bikes, or road bikes, Rio Verde is a thorough fair for bikes traveling from Cave creek to Fountain Hills, and we are nestled in the middle.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The casita is spacious, modern, clean, and nicely furnished. I would live in it full time if I could! The outdoor space is breathtaking. It is a bit of a drive to civilization (which is exactly what we wanted), but plan your trips to town because it's about a 20 minute drive. The Tonto National Forest is right there, so this place is awesome if you're looking for space to mountain bike, hike, ride horses, or ATV. If we come back to Scottsdale, we will definitely stay with Steve and Robin again!

Girls trip to Scottsdale

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Scottsdale. Our rental was very nice. Only suggestion was to have mirrors in bedrooms as there were 4 females and bathroom time was cramped. Beautiful rental place to stay.

very nice experience in a private setting close to open space

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay for my family of 4. Our tween children shared a bedroom and we had a young dog with us who had a very safe yard to explore.

The casita was clean and furnished with everything that one would expect. The location worked well for us because it is in the middle of several parks that we love to ride bicycles in. Very nice view of desert and mountains and quality landscaping.

We enjoyed the gas fireplace and the gas firepit, and chatting with our hosts Steve and Robin. We hope to return next year!

Awesome spot for a relaxing carefree vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank Steve and his family for the awesome rental. This place was even nicer then expected and was great place to relax near the Scottsdale area. Really our family could not have asked for more. The highlight of our entire trip was the "razor" rentals. Our girls loved it (highly recommended)!!! Wish we would have stayed longer. Thanks Again.

Great week at the casita!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week stay at the casita in January!

Everything was as expected. We enjoyed the gas fireplace in early morning and evening cool times. We enjoyed using the grills for barbequeing. While the pool isn't heated in the winter months, it provided a great foreground for the view to the east and Four Peaks. The nice size of the casita provided space to entertain friends that were also staying in the area

The Aakers were great hosts. They were very helpful with any questions we had about the area: restaurants, RVing directions, and shopping.

We would certainly recommend the casita, and hope to be able to return next year
