Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

We met our children in Scottsdale for Thanksgiving and wanted to be able to stay all in the same place rather than a hotel. This definitely fit the bill. The pool is only a few steps away from the condo. The condo is within walking distance of all the bars and restaurants in the trendy area and also within walking distance of Old Town Scottsdale.

Ease of getting into the unit was great and the unit was very clean. The unit had pretty much everything a person could need. The washer/dryer was great and allowed us to get caught up on our laundry since we had been traveling. It took us a while but I think we found towels for the pool but to be honest I'm not sure if they were pool towels or not so would recommend supplying those or calling out which are bath and which are pool..

Several things to improve upon:

1. Replace light bulbs. Half the light bulbs in the unit aren't working. The master bath only had 3 out of 6 bulbs working and then one of those went out (so I pulled one from the light over the dining room table) The 2nd bathroom only had 2 of 5 bulbs working and who knows how many were out in the ceiling fans. That definitely needs to be addressed!

2. There is absolutely no hot water in the kitchen, that includes the dishwasher. We know this because I tried to wash up dishes by hand and the water never got hot. The dishwasher is on the same line as the kitchen sink (we checked) and so there is no hot water whatsoever to wash dishes. Needs to be addressed immediately.

3. The door to the guest bedroom with the queen bed is squeaky. Not just a quiet squeak but wake up in the middle of the night squeak if someone gets up to use the bathroom. WD-40 would fix this right away.

4. A nice couple of chairs on the patio so a person can enjoy their morning coffee would be nice. The chairs out there are not comfortable at all. I don't drink coffee but I know most people do.

I do want to say that the owner was extremely helpful when I requested an earlier check-in and a later check-out which really helped us tremendously. We did not have enough room in our vehicle to pick up the kids from the airport or take them back with all their luggage and ours so we truly appreciated the owner allowing us to do this. Overall, if a couple of the above things were addressed I would definitely stay here again. We really enjoyed our time here. Thank you for allowing us to stay here for our holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Owner is very responsive to questions. Really appreciated the flexibility on

check in and check out times. Property was well kept. All bedrooms had walkin closets so suitcases were out of the way. Property was very near pool which was a plus. Loved the that we were walking distance to great restaurants, bars, and shops.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this condo. We could walk to so many restaurants and shops in Old Town and 5th Ave. that we did not need to drive the whole time we stayed there. It was comfortable and had a nice pool area. We enjoyed our stay!

Reasonable value but not well managed

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is one of four that the owner rents out in the same complex. It is well located, roomy, and fairly priced. The owner came by in person next morning when I texted that there were only 3 coffee cups in a rental for six people (he wasn't keeping track of breakage). He was unaware that the smoke detector had been removed from the living room. He also disclaimed responsibility for the unheated pool that he advertised as heated, or the chemical imbalance that turned my silver ring black when I jumped in for less than a minute (freezing). Scottsdale has much to offer for a short stay.

We loved this property. It was even better than the pictures depicted. It was within walking distance of Old Scottsdale. Everything was provided. Washer and dryer were a definite plus. My only suggestion would be a crockpot and more coffee mugs. As we cooked in every night it would have been nice to have so we could have dinner ready when we returned. Loved the hot tub, exercise facility, pool (unheated, but beautiful to look at), and waterfalls. Thanks so much for offering this reasonably priced, home away from home!
