Paradise Valley Vacation Rental Home

7 Nights

This is the Mountainside Guest House Home ...

Our Santa Fe style mountain-side home has a 600 sq.ft. detached guest house that we are renting to visitors. It would be considered a studio as it has no separate bedroom. It features a King size bed, plasma flat screen, walk in closet and gas fireplace. Located in Paradise Valley, bordering Scottsdale it has a large deck with a view of North Scottsdale, Pinnacle Peak, and Carefree. There is an outdoor fireplace near the pool that is enjoyable in the evening. At night the view is city lights, and mountains on two sides. This guest house is in an exclusive area which is very private but near lots of shopping and restaurants. You may see Arizona wildlife from the deck such as coyotes, owls, rabbits and road runners. This guest house is perfect for two people and that is the limit that we will allow. We are in the main house and only want guests who are quiet and will not be having any parties.

  • Excellent accommodations, location and hospitality.

    5 of 5

    We had an excellent week in the guest house. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed for the week, including fresh flowers, snacks and drinks. The stunning views and optimal location (minutes from Scottsdale) made for a lovely week in the warm sun. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Incredible Mountain Views!!!

    5 of 5

    We spent 3 wonderful nights in this idyllic casita in the foothills of Paradise Valley. The deck and views from this property are stellar. Arriving from the northeast we were up early to see the sunrise which was amazing. In addition to the location, our host Jim went out of his way to insure we had a wonderful experience. In some ways this vrbo is more like a bnb experience with Robes, lotions, soaps, snacks and bottled water all provided. The casita is beautifully decorated with many southwest artifacts. The king size bed and linens are so inviting, and the bathroom is very large with lots of counter and drawer space. And there is a very large walk in closet that served more as a dressing room. Finally this property is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Scottsdale. The surrounding homes are so varied and architecturally stunning, and when you are in the casita you can only hear the quiet and nature sounds of the mountains, yet just two minutes away you'll find some of the best restaurants and shopping the area has to offer.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely casita. Located in a beautiful neighborhood in the foothills of Paradise Valley, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated, this lovely little casita had everything we needed to feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked and Jim was a charming host. We highly recommend this property.

  • Great VRBO in Scottsdale!

    5 of 5

    Wonderful Casita in Paradise Valley! Small, well-stocked kitchen, large bedroom with gas fireplace, large bathroom and ample closet space. Private deck out back with gorgeous view. Loved having the pool and an outdoor fireplace just outside the door. Washer/dryer made it convenient for a long term stay. Jim is a wonderful host. Probably the best "stocked" VRBO we've ever been to. Would highly recommend!

  • Peaceful and Romantic Getaway

    5 of 5

    We thoroughly enjoyed our two-week vacation in Paradise Valley. The Casita was very comfortable and beautifully decorated and well-stocked and designed for maximum comfort. Jim was a spectacular host with ‘extra’s’ on our arrival – bottled water, wine, flowers and dark chocolate !! Jim checked in every few days to be sure we were 100% happy. We had a couple over for a BarBQ one evening– the deck is perfect for outdoor dinners overlooking the lights of the Valley under the stars and Jim made sure we had enough comfortable chairs for all. The location is private and very quiet and peaceful. Thank you Jim…it was a much needed break from the cold and snow of the Northeast. The location is easily accessible to everything the area has to offer…hiking Camelback, Museums/restaurants downtown, sights and restaurants in Scottsdale and Cave Creek. We hope to be back…

    5 of 5

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Scottsdale! The guest house was amazing and we felt quite at home. The kitchen was well stocked, comfortable bed, big walk in closet and lots of towels in the bathroom. We had a private deck with great views and lots of wild life to keep us entertained. We did lots of day trips and were close to great restaurants and shopping. Went for walks around the neighbourhood and took in all the beautiful homes and landscaping. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again soon!

  • Paradise

    5 of 5

    An amazing piece of paradise. Big enough for two people. Everything is set up with thought. Your own deck with many different seating options, table & chairs, loungers and a comfy love seat all for you to use. The pool was great when it was really hot. And the fire pit was a nice touch when in cooled down. Love the fire wood smell. Jim was a great at responding and answering any questions. Told us about a car show which one of his vehicles was going to be there and so we checked it out. He provided more than the basics which was nice so we didn't have to buy things like coffee or sugar! The bed was the most comfortable than at our house. The area is amazing! We will be returning.

  • Paradise in Paradise Valley

    5 of 5

    Lovely alternative to a hotel in the Paradise Valley/Scottsdale area. Quiet, spacious accommodation with a beautiful mountain view. A five minute drive to all the amenities including some excellent restaurants. The Guest House was uniquely, but tastefully decorated and very well equipped. King bed was very comfortable and walk in closet a treat. Only negative was not having a "heated" pool as the day time weather was quite warm. Host, Jim, was very helpful and dealt with questions in a timely manner. Wine, upon arrival was a thoughtful touch. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

  • Wonderful hosts wonderful property

    5 of 5

    We had a great week in our visit from Colorado. Jim's place is a fantastic location perfect for couples. We know Phoenix pretty well and knew this would be a very convenient location. Easy to airport and easy to many other attractions. The accommodations have everything we could possibly need. We felt like we had all the comforts of our own home. The view and the private deck and fireplace were some of our favorites.
