Everything was as advertised!

We stayed at this property from 5/27-6/3-17. There were 10 of us. Age ranges from 1 1/2 years old to 65, with teens in the mix too. Plenty to do on the property with ping pong, pool table, huge swimming pool and the awesome 1950's game room with jukebox, pinball machines and other games. The coolest thing was everyone of those old games worked! As the listing says, "luxury retreat at the base of Camelback Mountain", that is no exaggeration. Literally in the backyard is the famous Phoenician Resort, they have 3- 9hole courses and the rates were very reasonable. Fashion Square is literally about a mile away, very walk-able as many of us did. Ken and his daughter Kelly were great to work with making sure all of our needs were met. We will recommend this property! Thank you !

Perfect girls weekend getaway

Ken's house is amazingly beautiful - I went with a group of girlfriends and had a perfect weekend laying by the pool and having dinner prepared for at the house (ask for Chef Christine if you want to celebrate a special occasion). Ken was incredibly responsive both leading up to and during our stay and made everything about planning the weekend easy. We definitely want to come back!

Home Away from Home!

In an attempt to escape the endless Seattle rain, we stayed in this lovely Scottsdale home for 4 weeks. The home's owner, Ken, and his team (gardeners, pool guys, house cleaners, CHEF, property manager) made sure that we felt at home and were comfortable from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. For example, Ken has a REAL movie theatre popcorn machine. My wife mentioned that she loves movie theatre popcorn. FOR THE ENTIRETY OF OUR STAY, Ken mad sure that we had FRESH movie theatre popcorn at all times (you'll have to ask him if this service is provided to all guests). The house was excellent. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms - which allowed us to have friends and family come and go over the month - and for everyone to have their own "space" while visiting. If you like to play pool - check. If you like to swim in a beautiful pool - CHECK. If you like to sit in a hot tub after swimming in a beautiful pool - CHECK. If you like to sit in the sun, in the shade, or next to a fire pit near a beautiful pool - check. If after spending the day in the pool you like to cook in a fully stocked kitchen, play pinball, play ping-pong, listen to great music on a jukebox, or just watch TV - check to all of these items. In summary, this house has something for everyone - and is a comfortable home in which you feel like you can truly relax and have fun. Lastly, we really enjoyed the location. Old Town Scottsdale is right down the road - a 5 minute drive. We walked to Spring Training games. We found several restaurants - SumoMaya, Blanco's, Olive and Ivy, Montauk - that we loved - all within a 5-10 minute drive. And, while everyone else is fighting for parking so they can walk up Camelback Mountain, we walked out the side gate and headed for the Mountain - which is right down the street. I definitely recommend this house. It is a home - not a museum. Adding Ken and his team to the mix - just made it better and ultimately made it feel like a special trip for me, my wife, and our friends and family.

Excellent accomodations for larger groups!

The property easily accomodated our group of 11 who were down visiting for the Waste Management Golf Tournament. This house has something for everyone. The backyard was beautiful. We utilized the pool and hot tub daily, made fresh juice from the fruit trees and spent many hours playing the outdoor games. Ken and Kelli were very gracious offering assistance for anything needed during the stay. If you're looking for entertainment, you don't need to stray far. Old town is within a $5 ride for restaurants and bars. Would definitely rent again next time we're back.
