This place was absolute perfection for what my husband and I needed for our babymoon. Timea (John was out of town during our stay) was extremely accommodating as our flight arrived late at night. She provided clear and concise directions to get to her house and she was waiting outside upon our arrival. The villa itself was small, but we knew that going in. It was the perfect size for what we needed. The bed was comfortable and there was enough floor space for our large suitcase to be fully opened and a desk for additional items to be placed on. A mini fridge and microwave was also in the room which was quite convenient for our stay. The room was equipped with DirectTv, which my husband was very happy about so he could watch a few baseball games at night. The bathroom was a great size with a wonderful shower- Timea also provided towels, shampoo, body wash, and a blow dryer as well as microwave popcorn and multiple bottles of water. ;) We used the pool twice and had it to ourselves both times. It is not heated, but felt great against the intense heat of the sun. The grounds to the estate were very pretty and peaceful. There's even a horse farm behind the property.
The location is perfect as it was no more than 20 minutes to any of our destinations that we went to. We went to Old Town Scottsdale, Papago Park, the zoo, ASU, Chase Field and the bar area in scottsdale. The road that the house sits on is quite busy and can be difficult to get out of the driveway at certain times during the day, but there was never any noise disturbance from the traffic.
Timea was very attentive to my husband and I. She provided a lot of helpful tips for navigating the area as well as recommendations for gas stations, restaurants, and things to do in the area. She was very friendly and ensured that we were comfortable during our stay. My husband and I both agree that we will recommend John and Timea's place to our friends and family traveling to Phoenix. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to Phoenix!
John and Timea made you feel like family without being intrusive. Helpful and kind. The room and grounds are pristine, and watching Camelback Mountain as the sun rises was lovely. We had a relaxing time and definitely recommend. The bed was great, the room unique and very clean. There are nice restaurants nearby, and some major shopping happening just down the road in Scottsdale. The only drawback, and you got used to it, was the entry off of the busy Camelback Road. We had a nice time and I hope to go back!
Great location in Scottsdale. Home was even better than the photos! Really clean and offered extra amenities like bath products, bottled water and even popcorn. I would definitely stay there again
Before our arrival, Timea emailed me with additional information on our rental. Upon arrival, both John & Timea welcomed us and gave us a tour of the grounds, laundry room and pool area. We rented a 1 of their 6 units - we had a small studio with bedroom/bathroom only (250 sq ft). There was no kitchen but we managed ok with a bar refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and basic utensils. We also brought along an electric skillet and cooked a few items outside on our patio table. Bed linens and towels were also provided.
We met several other wonderful couples during our stay - we sat by the pool area and played cards and enjoyed a beverage together.
This was an ideal location for our trip - close to the airport, many restaurants/stores and our friends in Phoenix, Mesa & Scottsdale.
I arranged a last minute trip and feel lucky Timea and John's place happened to be available for the nights I needed a place. It's beautifully decorated, conveniently located and has an amazing view of Camelback Mtn. to the north. Very helpful and kind hosts and a pleasant experience.
We give the highest rating possible for our stay at the villa on Camelback rd. And the owners, Timea & John, are wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend staying there. We will certainly make reservations on our next trip to that area. Absolutely no complaints!!

A short drive to old town Scottsdale and Spring Training. Owners made sure we were right at home, and checked in during our stay to make sure all was well. Be sure to scedule a tour at the David Wright home, a amazing Frank Lloyd Wright designed home within walking distance.
