We arrived and were quickly greeted by the lovely couple who were made available through our hosts. They answered our questions and gave us valuable information. Our condo was clean and well equipped. The complex is centrally located and a hidden gem with its lovely grounds, heated pool and abundant citrus trees for the picking. Our hosts were also quick to respond through email. We made many new friends and the scheduled gatherings were always an opportunity to catch up on who has visited where, eaten at what restaurant, upcoming events, ect. Thank you to Stephen and Judy! We look forward to another AZ winter in 2017. Jim and Pat

We had a wonderful time at Judy & Stephen's condo. The location is great -- a short morning walk to see the mountain sheep at Papago Park's Phoenix Zoo, 10 minutes to Old Scottsdale, and an easy drive to local hiking trails. The condo was a retirement home. It's filled with everything imaginable -- even a citrus picker for the orange and grapefruit trees growing outside. The owners have contacts in the complex and are very willing to help with any concerns.

Great Location. Quiet area. Place needs to be updated especially in the kitchen. Stove and refrigerator are easily from the 70's. Probably don't get any repeat renters. Host Judy and Stephen are super nice and hope that with a few updates to their rental property they could have a really nice place.

Christine was a very good tenant. I only wish that she had told us about some things that bothered her while she was there, and we would have tried to address them. Christine left our condo in excellent condition so we would have liked to make her 100% happy while she was in our condo.

This was our first time renting long term, i.e. more than a week & the first time using AirBnB so therefore a bit apprehensive at first. We were immediately impressed with the user friendliness of the AirBnB web site & also came to appreciate & respect the process AirBnB has in place to protect both the owner & guest. We booked Peaceful Snowbird Paradise for the month of March, 2014. Prior to arriving, we felt reassured & confident with the detailed information & friendliness of the owners, Stephen & Judy who promptly answered any questions or concerns. Upon arrival, we found the condo exactly as pictured & described. Should we require any assistance during our stay, Stephen & Judy provided us with the contact information for 3 couples living in the complex. Given our stay was for a month, we soon deeply appreciated the spaciousness, comfort & practicality of our unit plus its excellent location. It was close to major amenities yet secluded enough to provide privacy. Being able to park our car right outside the back door turned out to be a real bonus as well as being a short walk from the wonderful pool area & BBQs. During the course of our stay, we had several questions we would email to Stephen & Judy which were always answered very promptly. Overall, we were very pleased with every aspect of our stay & will very seriously consider returning at some future date. Our only regret is we were not able to meet the wonderful & accommodating owners, Stephen & Judy in person.

Response from Judy & Stephen:
We were delighted to have Keith and Therese as tenants, and we hope they will be able to return another year, perhaps for more than a month if their parrot back in Canada doesn’t mind a longer absence. We’re glad they enjoyed our place, and the quiet condo complex, and the whole area. They appreciated that this south west corner of Scottsdale was central for Phoenix, Mesa and Tempe, and had easy access to Interstates. We too would have enjoyed a face-to-face meeting, but meanwhile we developed warm feeling for them from Keith’s funny and friendly e-mails.. Ever since we inherited this place from Judy’s parents we have been making improvements, major ones at first, then minor ones later. There were a couple of small projects that we planned for the summer off-season, but Keith didn’t want us to wait, and kindly volunteered his expertise to take care of them himself. Most tenants leave the place the way they found it, but Keith left it a little better.
