Melissa was a terrific host, we even arrived to a plate of home-baked brownies that were delicious. The property was better than advertised, with plenty of space and outstanding views. All amenities were top shelf, including towels and bedding. Melissa was very prompt in making…

Thank you so much for booking my house John! I just got a moment to review everything, and I missed the window to review your stay :( I'm glad you guys were able to have your meeting here, if I didn't have a buyer for the house I'd invite you all back!

Melissa's home compares to no other AirBnBs we have stayed in. It was an extraordinary home in a desert setting, good for guests who enjoy wildlife, and also great amenities for those who love the finer things in life. The home was beautifully decorated inside and out, and so re…

Thanks for the feedback, Guy! I'm surprised about the track - it is a playtrack for my neighbor's son and it rarely sees any action, I wish you had said something about it while you were here because I would have called him and he would have stopped. I'm sorry that impacted your stay.

This is a very beautiful home. It is located in a very remote area- so not the best place if you want to go to Scottsdale everyday, but perfect for me visiting someone in Rio Verde or if you want someplace quiet and located in the beautiful desert. Melissa made us feel very welc…

This home is spotless, spacious, and a bargain at the current rate. We arrived to freshly-baked brownies, and an engaging and welcoming host. Unfortunately, we were in town for a family reunion and were only at the house to sleep, but it would be a fantastic place for family or f…

There are five houses on this short street, all on the south side. This means unobstructed north views! The property is 3/4 mile north of the main roadway, close to Tonto National Forest. There is …

Getting around

Your best bet is to rent a car (an SUV if we are having rains, given how north Scottsdale streets flood). Uber and Lyft do service this area, but sometimes the wait can be lengthy. In a pinch I can …
