Holiday Rental House
This is not just a vacation rental... it is our home. We live here part of the year. As veteran travelers, we have always preferred staying in a home to a hotel. What makes a home away from home? A central location, a welcoming & well-kept house, comfortable beds, privacy, a kitchen with ample utensils, plenty of clothes hangers, WIFI & space to work. (And we throw in color and whimsy). In the heart of downtown Scottsdale, the updated mid-century house is surrounded and shaded by native trees. The backyard is huge, and easily accommodates a PRIVATE pool, outdoor dining, & a propane gas grill. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a comfortable queen-sized bed. Two bedrooms share a full bath. The third bedroom has its own 3/4 bath, which is conveniently accessible to the kitchen/breakfast area. If y...This is not just a vacation rental... it is our home. We live here part of the year.

The third bedroom has its own 3/4 bath, which is conveniently accessible to the kitchen/breakfast area. If you choose to cook rather than take advantage of the many terrific restaurants within walking distance, the spacious kitchen is well-equipped. There is ample seating in the living room, dining room & breakfast room. A propane gas grill is ready for your outdoor culinary efforts. A large table & six chairs provide comfortable outside dining in the (huge) backyard. And we are well-equipped with Wi-Fi & plenty of TV should you decide to forego all of the nearby activities & just stay home. You'll find lots of maps and informational brochures about the area. A wall surrounds the pool and backyard, but the pool itself is not separately fenced. Children must always be accompanied by an adult. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 21188517More

We are so glad you enjoyed our home and location. The bikes are a relatively new addition to the area that I have forgotten to include in the description. Thank you for reminding me!

Stayed here for a family get-together... ideal setup, with plenty of dishes, cookware, etc., and room to spread out. Incredible location, walkable to The Waterfront and downtown Scottsdale. Really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home.

About the neighbourhood
You just can't beat our location in Scottsdale. Fashion Square, its upscale shops, restaurants & 14 movie theaters are across the street. We are convenient to all the area's special events, including the Barrett-Jackson auto show/auction, Waste Management Golf Tournament, the Arabian Horse Show, Spring training, and many conferences and meetings held in nearby but fabulously expensive resorts. Many of our guests make the most of these events while using our comfortable home as an affordable alternative to pricey hotels & resorts.
Getting around
Though Old Town Scottsdale and the 'Waterfront' Area are easily walkable from our house, you want to have a car to make the most of the area. Uber is also available, however, should you prefer to leave the driving to someone else! Fifth Avenue Shops & Old Town are within walking distance, or you can hop aboard one of the free trolleys that traverse Downtown Scottsdale -- super convenient if you're into the vibrant Old Town nightlife. And you're just a few minutes' drive from the Scottsdale Stadium, home of the San Francisco Giants Spring Training (only a 35-minute walk or 20-minute trolley ride).
