About this property

Views! Private! Cozy Patios! Resort Community!

Family-friendly guesthouse in Phoenix
Read our reviews! We have very happy guests!
Experience Phoenix - enjoy the beautiful desert and mountain views, and relax or work — all from a serene centrally located private retreat in a desirable resort neighborhood. Relax in this professionally cleaned (following Covid 19 disinfectant protocol) spacious 1st floor separate guest retreat which includes Premium high speed internet, Apple TV (and Netflix, Hulu, HBO, ESPN), two private patios, new modern kitchenette, Weber grill, and your own private contactless keypad entrance. We offer a quick informational tour on arrival with masks and social distancing but also provide the option of independent contactless check-in. We are super careful about the health and safety of our guests and respectful of their wishes.

LOCATION - Great central city location (easy SR 51 access) in a wonderful shady walkable resort neighborhood.
*** 15 mins- Airport / downtown
*** 20 mins-ASU/ Grand Canyon Univ / Phx Zoo / Botanical Garden / Old Town Scottsdale
Blocks from entrance to miles of hiking paths in the Dreamy Draw Recreation Preserve. A quick 1/2 mile walk or bike ride to the canal entrance. Literally yards to Hilton Resort. A short walk to several resort and neighborhood restaurants.

BIKE, RUN, WALK - Enjoy a resort setting within the Hilton Pointe at Squaw Peak community with mature trees and cacti - a shady walkable community. If you enjoy walking running, or biking - our neighborhood offers a rare opportunity in the middle of the city - to enjoy without traffic. Hiking and riding trails (and the canal) are an easy walk away.
*** The Arizona Canal stretches nearly 39 miles from east of Scottsdale through Phoenix and into Peoria. It’s part of the 132 miles of canals in the metropolitan area. Access to the canal is a quick 1/2 mile walk through the neighborhood (just past Sumida Park).
*** Access to the Dreamy Draw Recreation Preserve is a comfortable walk or very short drive. Miles of hiking trails beginning at the picnic area — starts in a draw (small valley) and then progresses upward, so one has the sensation of crossing different plant zones, though the altitude gain is not that dramatic. This preserve is an amazing natural treasure right in our neighborhood.

INTERNET/WORK SPACE - A great space for remote workers
*** Premium High Speed Internet *** - Cox Gigablast -
(See pics for speed-test screenshot)
Includes a height adjustable sit/stand desk - positioned to take advantage of the spectacular views and a nice table for snacking or games with ample work surface and comfortable chairs to make a worker friendly table for laptops. The two private patios each have a table and comfortable chairs making great spots to work or relax -- with a view.

DINING / COOKING - Our guest suite has a new modern kitchenette - microwave, ice cold beverage fridge, dishwasher, a coffeemaker (coffee, tea, and all the fixings), convection toaster oven, single burner cooktop, and various small appliances. There is also access to a a full size refrigerator. We provide a variety of mugs, glassware, wine tools, and utensils. If you like to barbecue- our guest suite includes a Weber (with propane tank) for working your grilling magic. There are also several restaurants within walking distance and Sprouts grocery is only one mile away. You would be hard-pressed to find a prettier view patio to enjoy dining on simple fare or take-out/delivery from any of the many wonderful eateries in our city.

ACCESSIBILITY - With a no-step entrance — from parking to door— and all on one floor, our place is great for those with mobility issues

SLEEP - Each bedroom features a high quality comfortable mattress and luxury linens on the queen size bed. The bedrooms each include a sound machine with optional ambient nightlight and many soothing sound options to enhance your sleep. Each bedroom has a spacious closet with luggage rack and ample room for hanging clothing. The front bedroom has a sliding door to cozy view patio. (We also have a new twin roll-away bed available on request.)

PRIVACY - While we reside in the upper level, guests enjoy a separate entrance, separate air conditioning and ventilation, and the entire 1st floor — a guest suite all to themselves. With no close-by neighbors, our place is an idyllic nature get away.

PETS - While we adore pets - our special guest suite is not set up for visiting animals and for several reasons is not pet friendly. If traveling with a service animal, we ask that you inquire before booking so we can determine if special arrangements can be made.

VIEWS- Comfortable and bright with a whole wall of windows, framing the beauty of Arizona’s timeless blue skies and cactus splendor (Saguaro, Organ Pipe, Prickly Pear, etc. ) as well as a backdrop of the Phoenix city-scape. Gaze out at one of our giant Saguaro cactus and watch up close as Arizona Cactus Wren fly in and out of their cozy (and prickly) cactus home. Note: many of the view pictures we are featuring were taken by our Airbnb guests.

Quite honestly, we’ve had experienced Phoenix realtors tell us that they have never seen such views (both mountain and city) from any home in Central Phoenix. The mature cactus growth on our property is unparalleled.

WILDLIFE - Keep an eye out - and you might just get treated with spotting the occasional visiting coyote, raccoon, roadrunner, or other desert wildlife roaming past.

If you are seeking a refuge where you can relax or work, enjoy the stunning beauty of nature in a spacious and modern, private, and comfortable clean setting, in a great location central to all that Phoenix has to offer ... we think you will love our unique Heart of Phoenix Hillside Retreat!

Gorgeous Views/Welcoming Hosts
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property for a month and found it difficult to leave. The house is situated high on a hill with wonderful views of Piestewa Peak—sunsets were spectacular. The master bedroom opens onto a patio adjoining a desert garden with huge cacti and a view of downtown Phoenix. The main living area is an open plan with an abbreviated kitchen. For us, we were happy with the kitchen and were able to cook anything we wanted with the large toaster oven, induction burner, microwave and Instant Pot. We also used the grill frequently and enjoyed the view from that patio area. The location is far from the madding crowds of Scottsdale but with convenient access to the 51, which enabled us to get anywhere in Phoenix quickly. It’s also adjacent to the Dreamy Draw recreation area, and we were able to walk to hiking trails. Nancy and Lon were the most welcoming hosts we have experienced in years of VRBO rentals. We had many friendly interactions with them and even met their charming children. Nancy brought fresh towels for us a few times during our stay and allowed us use of the washing machine and dryer. Phoenix can feel like miles of urban sprawl and this house was an oasis of calm to return to each day. We will return.
