This 1020 SQFT ground floor two bedroom condo is located on Hayden Rd & Indian School Rd, just three blocks from Scottsdale Rd. The unit was new in 2007 and new wood laminate floor was installed in 2011.
The Sunscape Villas are regarded as some of the best condos in South (Old Town) Scottsdale. The Vacation condo features all the finer luxuries of home including, granite counter tops in the kitchen, outdoor patio, brand new appliances, one of a kind oil paintings, Plasma Screen TV, DVD, and comfy mattresses.
Calling this place a luxury condo is a joke. The photographs are very misleading (especially the pool picture!!). It was dirty and run down. The bathroom was disgusting (slime in sink, hair in shower etc). Luckily, Airbnb allowed me to cancel my reservation after I sent them photographs of the condition of the place.
NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE
About 4 days before the trip, I emailed Ryan to get last minute instructions. He asked me to call his assistant the day before. I did so, and she gave me the parking space number and the code to get into the unit. When we arrived the next day, we discovered that there were many buildings and units, and we had not been given the unit number. I called the assistant and Ryan and sent text messages. After about 10 minutes of wandering around in the heat I called Airbnb and they connected me with Ryan, who had his assistant call me with the unit number. He then sent me a text that said "you were supposed to call one week ago, and now it is after 5:00." I checked my watch. It was 4:30. I thought his response was rude.
The unit was not a "luxury condo." I would call it "barely adequate." The carpets could have used a good washing, there was hair in the bathtub drain, the washing machine made our clothes smell moldy, etc.
The next day, there was a knock at the door. The gentleman at the door was surprised to see us and said that he was planning to rent the unit that day (we were there for two more days) and that it must have been double booked. I sent a text to Ryan. His response was "you are in the wrong unit", as if it was our fault that his assistant gave us the wrong unit number and code. When I wrote back and said I didn't appreciate his tone, his response was "I'm glad you like the place!" Hmmm, I never said I liked it.
I sent another text asking to see the unit we were supposed to get. I was ignored.
These pictures were obviously taken by a professional photographer. The pool is just ok. The fitness room carpet is filthy. I'm not sure if the unit itself is as pictured because I wasn't allowed to see it!
I visit Scottsdale quite a bit for work. Suffice it to say that I will never rent from Ryan again. I felt very disrespected by him.
The location is great because you can either drive a few minutes and be in Old Town Scottsdale or you are close to the freeway for farther destinations.
The pool is clean and it was quiet. The condo has all the basic items you need including pool towels. If you are planning to stay more than a couple days, you will need to get items like laundry detergent and hand soap. The pictures give a good representation but the carpet and bedding is older and could be updated.
Great place, easy transaction- very close to the 101 which made transportation easier. Wireless works great- easy and quick move in and even extension.
Ryan was a wonderful host. Excellent communication throughout. The condo was great. Spacious and very comfortable. I would recommend this location to anyone.
Very nice condo, looked just like the pictures.
The place was clean and the location was perfect.
Did not have a chance to use the pool but it looked really nice ;(
Felt safe and secure as well.
Would defiantly stay here again!

About the Host, Ryan
Hello, and thanks for stopping by to take a look at one of my vacation homes. I have owned and managed vacation homes for 8 years now and love what I do. I have had the opportunity to build, design, manage, and develop what I think are some of the best vacation properties units in the world. We offer a total of 75 units all over the US and Mexico and only specialize in Nightly, Weekly and monthly rentals. Over the years this business has allowed me to meet people just like you from around the world who have stayed with us on their holiday, work trip, or golf vacation, or just a girls weekend. We take a lot of pride in our units, their location, cleanliness, and overall value. I hope you will allow us the opportunity to earn your business during your next visit to Scottsdale. Your Friend, Ryan
