Fully furnished & recently remodeled room in Old Town Scottsdale. 4 bedroom with 2 people living here (the room available is the guestroom). We enjoy hiking & socializing
-3 miles Camelback area (Mall & bars) - 9 miles to Tempe - 14 to PHX Airport
The room is nicely furnished and you will have access to the upstairs bathroom (currently not used by anyone but guests).
I purchased the home mid 2013 after a complete remodel. I have since made many additions, so the place is definitely nice and well kept.
Amazing location! You are right in the center of Scottsdale. Besides Mill Ave (near the University), Old Town Scottsdale is the main area for active people under 50 & tourists. North Scottsdale has a few bars, shopping, and hiking, but limited nightlife. North Scottsdale is about 10 miles away.
Guests will be given a key to the front door to come and go as they please. The bedroom has a keyed lock as well. Please keep the place clean and looking nice and you are welcome to use the kitchen. Otherwise make yourself at home; please make use of the living rooms, the cover patio, and swimming pool!
Interaction with Guests
Really depends on the day and schedules. I work full time during the day (from my home office), so that will be pretty limited. We typically go out on Friday and Saturdays anyone is welcome to come if you would like. My roommate and I are pretty social and enjoy meeting new people.
Nice neighborhood in a quiet area, but still close to all of the Old Town shopping/nightlife.
There is a trolley (bus) stop about a 3 minute walk away that runs to Old Town. I believe it runs from early in the morning until around 10/11pm on weekends. A cab ride is probably about $10-15 including tip. Uber and Lyft are available as well (I have a discount card available for new Uber users).
Other Things to Note
I do have a dog (Goldendoodle named Hobo). He is stupidly friendly and does not shed much. He spends most of his time in the backyard and sleeps in his kennel. He is like a big teddy bear, so most people think it is a plus. I do have other dogs stay as well (there is an Airbnb concept for dogs), but they are quiet and typically fun to play with! Dogs spend as much time as possible outside and I keep the inside almost spotless, so I doubt you would see any hair.
Keep it clean and be respectful. Otherwise nothing specifically. I'll provide a little guide on check-in that describes where to find everything you might need.
Paul was an excellent host, very welcoming and accommodating, no request was too much trouble (I actually had very few requests which is also a reflection on how great Paul's home is). The house is spotless and very well kept. Security is good too, Paul's house is well-protected. His roommate was also uber-cool and we had a trip out together to Sedona. Paul does have a lovely bouncy dog and sometimes a few dog guests but they are very discreet (and I have a dog myself). The neighbourhood is very quiet and easy to get in/out of Scottsdale centre and out of town. Thank you Paul and Rabbi. See you in Europe next time!
The host was very welcoming and was very flexible on our late arrivals. The house was exactly as pictured and in a safe neighborhood across from a school.
Paul was an extremely accommodating host. The bedroom was clean, the bed was plush, and everything we needed was available to us (blow dryer, extra toothbrushes, iron, sunscreen, hangers, launder, JamBox, towels, etc). Paul was around the place most of the time we were there and we talked to him quite a bit and had it worked out, we would have gone out one evening. He was very helpful with recommendations.
We used the pool two of our days. I would recommend a rental car however UBER was so cheap (compared to Chicago where we are from) to get downtown Scottsdale. Otherwise everything you need is nearby.
A day later, a friend of mine in AZ saw his place come up on her app for dog boarding. I said I'd recommend him for sure. When we were there, we saw a few different pups but his home is well-equipped that you can see the dogs as much or little as you wish as they are kept in a side yard or in his office at night.
Paul's home was perfect. The room was comfortable, the house was clean and we loved the decor. Thank you for working with Ray and I and our last minute plans. We only wish we had a little more time to go see the sights and restaurants you suggested. We'll be back.
Paul was very hospitable and his house was the perfect "home base" for my visit to Arizona for Spring Training games. Conveniently located near central Scottsdale, very clean and comfortable, and a friendly environment. Thanks, Paul!
Paul was a great host and his house is amazing. He was very helpful with sight seeing options on my downtime since I was just in town for a wedding. The place is immaculate and conveniently located to lots fun things to do. He makes the guests feel at home. I would definitely love to stay there again if I'm ever in that part of the area.
In my late 20's and employed full time in the tech industry. I enjoy hiking, going to the gym, socializing, going out with friends, live music, so on...
