HOME AWAY FROM HOME
The villa was truly stunning, beautifully decorated and maintained. It could not have been more perfect for what we were looking for in our vacation. Amazing views and happy memories. We would love to return. Thank you so much, Dave !!!!”
This was an amazing property, we had good expectations but never imagined such a warm inviting home. The house was beautifully designed and furnished complete with all the amenities you could want. We normally like to try local restaurants when traveling but found ourselves wanting to return home each day to dine in and watch the beautiful sunsets and city lights of Scottsdale,. The outdoor living was amazing, complete with pool, spa, ample seating and fireplace. The owner was responsive to all our requests and had everything you could possible need to make us feel at home. We fell in love with the desert and are hoping to return! Thanks Dave.”
