This condo met our needs perfectly. We were 2 couples staying in Scottsdale for Spring Training games. Good location, very quiet, clean, & comfortable. It was great having the washer/drier on the premises, too.

Owner's reply:

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for taking a moment to review my Scottsdale condo. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and had a excellent vacation! We agree that the location is primo... central to so many areas of the Valley so that guests can enjoy the various ball parks, golf courses, and other wonderful things that the area has to offer. Thank you for pointing out that the one car garage is tight if you have a large vehicle. I do let my guests know that in the rental contract so that they are prepared. I am able to park my mid-sized SUV in there, but if you have a large vehicle, you're better off parking in one of the spaces next to the garage. I love having the convenience of our own washer/dryer right there in the laundry room inside the private garage. I'm glad to hear that I was able to respond to your needs in a timely manner and we sure look forward to having you back for your next visit to beautiful and sunny Scottsdale, AZ! Warm regards, Julie and Matt

We like Scottsdale condo a lot. It is comfortable and specious. We found in it everything what we need. The area is very nice. The city park is about 10 min walk from condo and we love it. We had really great time.

Julie McAllister

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Julita! We agree that the condo's close proximity to the Scottsdale Greenbelt Park is a win! Our guests who have pets or love to get some exercise really love having such a large park so close to the condo. We are glad to hear that you found everything that you need in the condo. We strive to keep it beautifully furnished and fully equipped with more than just the basics. We love throwing in extras that really make our guests appreciate staying with us. All the best to you and yours. Julie & Matt

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. There were many things close by, including a park within walking distance and a grocery store just around the corner. We drove within a few minutes to several great restaurants and also the Phoenix Zoo. The place is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We absolutely loved it! Thank you for such a great vacation!

The location is great if you want to also visit Tempe, Mesa or anywhere in Scottsdale which we did. We also have friends in Anthem and that was an hour away. Primary reason for stay was Golf and excellent location for some great courses. TV, WiFi all worked well. Did not use the pool so have no opinion. Bed in master is memory foam and if you are not used to it, it is different and all beds are queen size not king. The door lock system works very well with your four digit code, not keys required. The garage is a little tight if you are used to a double garage but gets the car out of the heat. Washer and dryer are located in the garage. Kitchen is small but very adequate and all appliances worked fine. The bathroom has come drainage issues and the shower is a little confusing but again it gets the job done. All the decorations are very interesting and pleasing. Overall our stay was very enjoyable and the unit was a very good part of our stay. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by... Would recommend as a good place to stay to learn Scottsdale and the surrounding area

We enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was comfortable, beautiful little kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. It was easy to get around from this location as it was quite central. Loved the ease of accessibility to the Scottsdale Trolly, and took the free tour on it to the oldtown area on the weekend. No driving! Also took a dip in the (heated) pool, although it was quite a jog from the condo. There is one closer, but unheated, so save that one for the hot weather. Julie was also very easy to contact and very prompt to answer all of our inquiries. There were only two of us, but this would be nice for a family as well with the 2 large bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. It was a very good holiday experience. The one thing we did miss having was any kind of a view. Also, if you are driving a full-size vehicle do not plan to park in the garage as it will not fit . . . but there are alternate parking spaces.

We rented this condo in February. The weather was fabulous during our stay. The condominium community is on a quiet, residential street. It is small and quaint and we met some friendly neighbors. We took the trolley to Old Town Scottsdale and it was a breeze because it stops right across the street and it was free. This condo itself is beautiful, and very-well maintained, with nice and comfortable furniture. It was family-friendly for our little one without too many breakables that had to be moved. The owner couldn't be nicer. She talked to us at length before our trip about the condo and covered everything we needed to know. She also called right when we arrived to make sure that everything was to our liking. The kitchen is totally stocked. We cooked for almost every meal and didn't miss anything. We also really loved the beds! The owner provides high speed Internet and a DVR. A very nice added bonus. Stay here - you won't regret it!

Guest: David (San Francisco, Ca)
Date of Stay: March 15, 2011

This condo is awesome and we highly recommend it! We will undoubtedly rent it again. It is very clean and the beds are heaven. I would highly recommend renting from this owner. The owner is very dedicated to making your stay perfect. She is easy to get in touch with and returns call and emails quickly. As for the condo itself, it is beautiful and the location is excellent. It is close to the pool and is a two-story condo on the end with no one above or below the condo. I love this condo so much. I will definitely be recommending it to my family and friends. I would rate the condo and the service A++. Thanks again to the owner for making our Scottsdale vacation heavenly.

Our family enjoyed our week at this neat modern condo. Everything was as advertised in close proximity to Oldtown Scottsdale.

Date of Stay: April 1, 2011

We were very comfortable in this two story townhome. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were good, the kitchen handy with great stainless steel appliances, and it was wonderful to have a garage. After busy days out doing many things in Scottsdale, it was great to come "home" and relax and watch the large flat screen t.v.Julie has decorated this condo with great artistic flair,making it seem more homelike than the average vacation rental. This condo is in a great location for getting to many places in Tempe,Mesa, Scottsdale, and Phoenix (a short drive to the airport.) It is only 5-8 minutes from Papago Park and the wonderful Desert Botanical Park. It is also only minutes from Old Town Scottsdale where there is always something interesting to see and do, as well as having many great restaurants and art galleries to browse in. You can hop on the Old Town trolley (just outside this condo complex) and ride there for free. It is so close to all these things, yet in a very quiet spot.We love to walk and there are so many wonderful places to walk close to this place (Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt.) We are relatively new VR*0 users and somewhat nervous when booking a condo for a holiday, so we must say how wonderful Julie was to deal with. She was so responsive, answering all our questions promptly. She was so friendly that we almost felt we were renting from a friend instead of a stranger. That certainly takes some of the stress out of planning a holiday.We would certainly recommend renting this condo from Julie.

I still haven't heard anything from the renters but I will certainly ask them when they check out if they don't call me back before then. I'll keep you posted!

Hi Les,
I am so glad to hear that you had a nice time at the condo. I have put a call into the renters who were checking in today and will ask them to take a look for the earrings. I'll let you know what I find out. I hope they find them!

Hi Julie,
We had a great trip with Ed & Kathy, mainly because the condo was perfect for us. But, what would a trip be without forgetting something. Carol is missing two earrings that she thinks may have dropped from her case. One is a gold hoop with a bamboo design and one is silver with a pearl drop. She has the mates in her case. We stayed in the second bedroom and the case was on the chest in the closet.

This condo is EXACTLY as advertised, and is a great place to stay. Julie is a very responable landlord who responds rapidly to any questions or problems (thebig screen TV was noy working when we arrived and was replaced in 24 hours). We will stay here again.

Guest: Brian and Denise (Anacortes, Wa)
Date of Stay: August 21, 2010

This condo has it all and the owner, Julie, is very easy to work with. Our flight came into Phoenix early so we asked for an early check in and Julie arranged for us to check in at 9am. After we checked in we asked about a couple of items such as a tea kettle and crock pot and since she didn't have them at the condo, she delivered them to us during our stay. The beds were super comfortable and most of all we loved the location! It is near everything that we wanted to do. We stayed in this rental in August 2010 and will definitely return again.

Guest: Dwight and Elsie
Date of Stay: February 22, 2009

Hi Julie, Elsie and I both enjoyed our stay in Scottsdale very much. We liked the condo, we liked the area, and although we did all our golfing in Mesa, the ease of commuting everywhere was astounding. Elsie enjoyed the green belt where she could go for her morning walk every day, and I enjoyed it because the restaurants were close and so were the ball fields. If you are not booked for next year yet please let me know what is available, and how soon we can book (a month at minimum) or if you are booked up maybe you can give us a heads up on some other properties that may be available. Thanking you again for your hospitality. Cheers, Dwight

Date of Stay: March 23, 2009

Hi Julie, Thanks again for the perfect accommodations for our family. We enjoyed the space, the TiVo and the pool(s). Also, I loved the bed in the master bedroom. Sadly, my bed at home now doesn't seem as comfortable as it once did! Can you tell me the type of mattress you have there? I would also add that we found the location to be great -- loved that it was so close to the freeway and central to many of the Spring Training ballparks. We will definitely stay here again if we make it back to the Phoenix area!

Best regards, Nancy O.

We enjoyed our stay at Julie's condo in October, 2009. We are two couples who traveled from Calgary to see an ASU Football game and the U2 concert. The condo was well decorated, very clean and had all of the essentials. We would definitely stay there again.

Date of Stay: December 24, 2008

This beautifully decorated condo in South Scottsdale should be on your must-stay list. Located in a quiet complex that is close to everything, we felt as if we were staying in an upscale hotel. All amenities were included to help make us feel as if it was our home. In addition, the owner made an extra effort to help us when our departure situation changed. We look forward to our next stay at the Scottsdale Haciendas. -Jack and Mary Stone, Corvallis, OR

This town-home has it all... Scottsdale location, it is very clean, modern and well taken care of with a garage too. All aspects of this comfortable town-home are impeccable. The beds are super comfy with quality sheets and covers etc. It's quiet yet you have two swimming pools to choose from and a modern kitchen too. You could ask for nothing more with this 2 bd 2.5 bath unit. It is just perfect and the pricing is fair and very comparable to other units if not better. The owner is friendly and amenable and will bend over backwards to accommodate your needs. It feels like home! I will lease from no one else if I can help it! -James Ennis, Seattle, WA
