Guest access

Guests have access to everything in the home and the very cool retro-pool. If you utilize the pool and any of the common areas, please clean up after yourselves and arrange the furniture as you found it. The pool is not heated year-round so please contact me prior to booking for specific details. I will provide you with a unique access code for the electronic dead bolt a few days before your arrival.

Interaction with guests

I'm available 24/7 so please feel free to reach out anytime via email, text or phone. I want to earn your 5-star rating and make this the best Airbnb experience you have ever had - so please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason whatsoever.

Other things to note

I have cut the cord on cable. However there is streaming video entertainment via ROKU (no local TV stations). However, the ROKU has TONS of entertainment, news, and sports. I have enabled a NETFLIX account for 1,000's of TV shows and movies. I use this technology at my own home and love it!

Let me know your arrival time and I can remotely adjust the thermostat, A/C or Heat, to make sure the place is comfortable upon your arrival. If you keep the south facing blinds closed while the sun is high in the sky, it will really help keep the place cooler. This unit is part of a complex built in 1958! It has a real cool retro feel to it that pictures cannot capture. Rest assured you'll love it the moment you step into the courtyard.

The laundry closet is at the end of the parking structure behind the building. There is a coin operated washer and dryer. The key to this closet is in the first drawer of the kitchen. Please guard it carefully as there is a $50 fine for the loss of this key.

There will be one extra set of bath towels for your use based upon how many guests are staying in my home. For instance, if you have booked your stay for (2), there will be (3) sets of towels; if you have booked your stay for (4), there will be (5) sets of bath towels. A starter bar of soap, shampoo and conditioner are in each bathroom.

HOUSE RULES
The Oasis is my home and not a hotel - so please treat it as if it were your own.
Check in: 2:00PM
Check Out: 10:00AM

Vacation Rentals are a wonderful thing for all of us, so lets make sure to protect it so we can all continue to enjoy it's benefits as guests and hosts. Our community is not totally opposed to short term guests, but this could easily change should my neighbors complain.
I don't like rules - so I'll try to keep them short and sweet....
1. Absolutely NO SMOKING is allowed inside or around the premises of the unit
2. The fireplace is not functional so please NO FIRES OR OPEN FLAME
3. We do not allow pets in the unit or on the property
4. The toilets are new but the plumbing isn't so please ONLY TP to be flushed. No feminine products or non-TP items
5. The garbage disposal works fine but know that large quantities of pasta, or vegetables can back it up. So please be gentle with it
7. Please bring all outdoor activities inside by 10:00PM.
8. The pool closes at 10:00PM and does not have a life guard
9. Please strip all beds you have slept in and leave the sheets next to the laundry closets. Comforters and blankets can be left in each of the bedrooms they came from.
10. Please place all dirty towels next to the laundry closet as well.
11. If you haven't cleaned the dishes already, please rinse and place all dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
12. Noise complaints: The walls and floors are masonry and do not easily allow noise to penetrate them, however any noise complaints from neighbors will incur a $150 fine to my guests.
13. Please do not use bath towels for the pool as the chlorine damages the bath towels. There will be a $15 fine per damaged bath towel.
14. Please do not move or re-arrange the furniture
15. My cleaning crew will show up at 10AM sharp on your check out date to clean my home. Any delay in your departure will incur a $15 fine per every 15 minutes you are delayed.
Thank you!

Michaels location can't be beat if you love Scottsdale. His remodel of this older condo was done very tasteful. The pool was quiet, and we had it to ourselves everyday. Our unit was clean, but could of used a few more towels, both bath and kitchen. He does furnish shampoo/soap, but best to take your own as they were just small hotel size items.
Michael User ProfileMichael is a superhost.
Response from Michael:
Thanks for the review and feedback Kim. I'll be sure to adjust the number of towels based upon my future guests length of stay. My standard policy is one extra set per # of guests, e.g., 2 guests = 3 sets of towels. As for the shampoo/soap - I try to supply a "starter" amount in case guests do not bring or forget what they prefer and can then head to the local store to pick up what they like. I'll adjust my future reservation details to include these details. Mike

Very nice place, wonderful location, good value. However, the pool was small and not very clean. Overall I would recommend this place over high-priced hotels in the area.

Hi Mary Sue, Thanks for the feedback, I'll make sure to touch base with the HOA regarding the cleanliness of the pool and get that resolved quickly. Mike

He has very nice place in a great location. Nice, modern set up. However you should expect delayed communication when it comes to vital questions about essentials in his home. We did not have any wash clothe towels once we arrived. Mike initially told us that he will not be able to get us the towels until the next morning. He did accommodate us and had someone bring us brand new (but cheap) wash clothes. Bedding in both rooms weren't up to expectations. The first bedroom had sheets, a white down comforter, and 2 pillows (no photo of this room). The back bedroom had sheets, a blanket and 2 pillows inside a sham and a decorative pillow (photos display otherwise). He has a cordless vacuum with no charger and no broom/dust pan accessible for clean up. Hopefully those essentials are provided for others after my stay.

Response from Michael:
I am sorry Rhia that you did not enjoy your stay, and my home fell short of your expectations. When we first spoke, I had called you back within 5 minutes of your voicemail and you requested a refund stating that "you just didn't like to "vibe" of the place and it "wasn't what you were expecting", nothing more concrete than that. You then expressed your concern that there were not enough towels, so I asked you to send me photos, which you did, however you must have mistakenly only sent me a few photos as upon your check-out my cleaners indicated there were even more towels including the additional towels they provided within a few hours of your check-in. I did recommend to you that you could use the pool towels until I was able to get the towels delivered, just in case it would have to be in the morning. I have also never had a complaint about the quality of the towels I provide, and should I they would be replaced. At that point I felt that it would be good to have Airbnb involved so I requested that you contact them directly for resolution. You did so and they contacted me shortly thereafter stating that if you did decide to leave, that they would indeed provide you with a 50% refund. However, you decided to stay which was confusing to me as well. I have also never had a complaint about my bedding which we have professionally cleaned and at times it can change the "look" as I don't have multiples of the exact same bedding, however it doesn't change the feel. I'm also a bit confused as to why you would even need a vacuum or dust pan? My cleaners didn't mention to me that the place was in-ordinarily dirty. Thank you for bringing to my attention that the vacuum cord is missing, I'll make sure to replace it. You pay for professional cleaning when you book my home and my team does a wonderful job, every time, at least accordingly to my other 5 star reviews on all three of my properties that are cleaned by the same people. So I'm not sure why you would want to clean up? My rules simply request that you strip beds and place the dirty sheets and towels in one location. One final comment - you mentioned in your private feedback that I was "late" as a host. As my listing indicates, I do not meet my guests upon arrival as I do not live in the area. You received, and confirmed, my welcome message that included arrival instructions and never indicated you had trouble entering my home. So all in all, I'm quite confused by your comments Rhia. Nonetheless, I wish you much success. Mike

Great location. Close to EVERYTHING. Only had a couple issues with cleaniness but that was it. No big deal. This has nothing to do with the condo itself, but if you plan on using the pool, you will get covered in fiberglass if you sit on the pool's steps (probably because it's old and starting to deteriorate). This happened to a friend and I and we spent the afternoon using a lint roller on our skin to remove everything.

Response from Michael:
Mari, Thanks for letting me know about the pool steps. I am reporting this to the HOA as this is not acceptable. I am here in Scottsdale now and will check it out personally. Mike

You won't be disappointed staying at this property located in prime Scottsdale. It is exactly as described and you can rest assured all the 5 star reviews are very accurate. You feel right at home the moment you open the door. It is extremely clean, updated, and comfortable. Michael responded immediately to any questions we had and was very friendly. Enjoy your stay.

RECOMMEND! My coworker and I had an excellent time at The Opulent. We were able to crash comfortably in front of the TV after intense days at work (just like home). Mike was an attentive host with a residence that lived up to the hype. Attractions and work were so close that we probably could have just taken Lyft rides everywhere and done away with the rental car. Hilariously my allergies are always really bad in Arizona... and The Opulent had tissues in every room. Thanks, Mike, for an excellent stay!!

Response from Michael:
WOW, thanks so much Tiffany and so glad everything worked out for your stay. Let me know if you ever return to the area, would welcome you back any time.
