I have lived, worked and played in Scottsdale for 20 years and this condo was my full-time home for nearly half of them. I have enjoyed some of the best years of my life here! After spending most of the past nine years in the Los Angeles area — Pasadena, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey — I relocated to Sedona, Arizona, full-time and began working for L’Auberge de Sedona Resort and Spa. My condo is in Old Town near Main and Marshall Way Arts District, nestled in a historic neighborhood known as Scottsdale Garden Apartment District. My building and a dozen or more next door were bustling resorts in the 1950s and the neighborhood is steeped in Old West midcentury charm like iconic neighbor Hotel Valley Ho— a national and local historic landmark that was a hidden hideaway for Hollywood elite dating back to 1956. The condo's location is the #1 thing guests love! It’s close to all the action but far enough away to get away from it all and enjoy a quiet space. It’s about a block-and-a-half from the Scottsdale Trolley pickup 'n' drop-off site and walkable to the heart of Old Town where there are lots of things to do and see. What guests also love about my condo: 2) Squeaky-clean, clutter-free housekeeping and attention to detail. 3) Quick response time, friendly communication and fantastic guest service. 4) Fully-stocked essentials for kitchen, laundry, bed, bath, pool, personal care. 5) 145 five-star reviews and maintaining and achieving elite "Plus" status and "Superhost" status for 22 consecutive quarters since becoming eligible, July, 2016. My place is best suited for: Urban-minded modern minimalists who prefer a simple clutter-free, clean space with an efficient floor-plan, and whom prefer a comfortable, modern interior and an exterior with Midcentury “Googie” architectural charm. You can Uber or scooter or bicycle to hipster cyber-coffee houses, swank cafés, resorts, nightclubs, sports bars, restaurants, hiking/biking trails, golf courses, spas, spring training Major League Baseball, luxury and boutique shopping, natural attractions and sightseeing galore. The neighborhood has a great Bike and Scooter Score of 85 and a comfortable, easy Walk Score and Sound Score of 75. The location is centrally located. It’s close to arterial freeways that connect to Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe (ASU Campus) and North Scottsdale/Carefree/Cave, Glendale. The condo is mere minutes from the epicenter of Old Town’s sizzling social scene replete with unexcelled dining, hipster coffee houses and cyber cafés, art galleries and western museums, Southwest and Native American gift shops and novelty shops, San Francisco Giants Scottsdale Stadium, soon-to-be Phoenix Rising practice facility, designer fashion boutiques, Fashion Square Mall, 5-star resorts and spas, biking and walking paths, hiking trails, Art Walk Thursdays, Scottsdale Artist’s School, Downtown Scottsdale Entertainment District, historic Main Street, Fifth Avenue, Scottsdale Civic Center for the Arts, Camelback Mountain and Scottsdale Waterfront and Arizona Canal. About me: I'm typically not in town when my guests are. I spend a great deal of time in Sedona. If I’m in town when you are, I welcome getting acquainted but I always respect your privacy and never intrude. I’ve been in hospitality, corporate communications, news-media and public relations for 20 years. I believe in providing amazing customer service and managing expectations through transparency and clear communication. It's my business practice to be proactive. Have an issue or concern? Let's talk about whatever it may be that isn't working for you. If you’re not happy, I’m not happy. My outlook on life: I believe what you allow in your presence defines your values. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and an open heart and mind... Some would say I'm a risk taker who leaps with the faith the net will appear. I listen to my gut; I follow my heart. I don’t regret anything that once made me smile. I believe in the adage, "Let go or be dragged." I’m passionate about civil rights, social-justice, equality, diversity, acceptance, tolerance.... Love equally :). I’m an animal lover and animal rights advocate, a portrait artist and a photographer of all things. One thing I'm not: A cook! The best thing I make are reservations ;) Another thing I'm not: An early bird. But I still manage to get the worm ;) My ideal vacation-destination is a tropical island like Maldives, Bali, Fiji, Thailand, Bora Bora, Bali. When I'm on vacation I don't make plans. Zero itinerary is heaven to me. Letting things unfold naturally and organically is how I roll. I am very proud of a few things I've accomplished in my nearly six-year partnership with Airbnb: Earning the distinguished status of Superhost 20 consecutive quarters since partnering with Airbnb, 2016. And, in February 2018, I was one of the first hosts in the state of Arizona to be invited to apply to be accepted into what was then their beta tier of distinguished property listings, eventually known as "Airbnb Plus." Both distinctions are a result of consistently achieving and maintaining stringent Airbnb hospitality, property management, housekeeping and guest satisfaction metrics. I'm proud of my 138 five-star reviews and proud to be among the "7 percent of Airbnb hosts worldwide" who are Superhosts (January, 2017, New York Times). Reportedly, even fewer, are Plus-property Superhosts. Why choose me over another host? Airbnb Plus listings like mine, especially when managed by Superhosts like me, feature “consistently and exceptionally well-reviewed and rated listings and hosts” recognized by Airbnb for consistently providing “exceptional quality, comfort and style.... and are thoughtfully designed, well-equipped and well-maintained.” (Airbnb, Inc). My reputation for successfully managing meticulous details is often talked abou in my reviews. I strongly believe the devil is in the details. When the Plus division launched in August, 2018, only 2,000 hosts (like me) in only 13 cities worldwide had passed Airbnb’s vetting and inspection process to earn the rank of Airbnb Plus host. I was honored and humbled to become a member of an exclusive world class. Airbnb Plus properties and Airbnb Beyond Luxe are the crème de la crème listings of Airbnb. If you're still reading this and want to know more about my lIfe before Airbnb, read on: I graduated from Arizona State University Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications with a degree in Broadcasting. I was in corporate communications, public relations, and radio news reporting and commercial television sports production and public television. I was an executive ghostwriter for one of Arizona's Top Ten CEOs serving Fortune 500 clients... I worked in Phoenix-area radio and TV including 98FM KUPD and PBS Channel 8 as well as ABC-televised NFL Arizona Cardinals and NCAA ASU Sun Devils Football. I also worked in guest relations for hospitality and food service leader Hillstone Restaurant Group. Prior to joining Airbnb, I was a freelance writer for the nation’s second largest media production company, Los Angeles News Group and my byline was published in their L.A.-area daily Pasadena Star-News and San Gabriel Valley Tribune. It has been a pleasure getting acquainted. I look forward to meeting you. I hope you'll choose to stay. It would be my delight to host you. I appreciate your business... With gratitude, Toby
