Choosing a Vacation Rental over a Hotel

Comments Off Uncategorized

While the leaves turn brown and gray clouds take over the blue skies during the fall and winter months in many parts of the country, that is when flowers bloom, birds sing, and people come out for a wealth of activities and excitement in Scottsdale.

When planning your vacation to Scottsdale, consider the accommodation options available to you.  The city has an assortment of resorts and hotels offering a range of options spanning from relaxing and luxurious to swanky and nightlife-focused to simple, budget-conscious and family-friendly accommodations.

While, many resorts and hotels offer an array of amenities, they cannot offer the amount of space, independence and convenience a Scottsdale vacation rental can offer.  If you are a group of four, a Scottsdale vacation rental can offer you more than just two adjoining rooms.  With the comfort of a great room, dining room, and kitchen in addition to two bedrooms and two baths, it is easy to unwind and feel right at home.

Breakfast is as easy as walking from your bedroom to the kitchen in your pajamas and getting started on a breakfast that you are accustomed to eating and that doesn’t cost a fortune.  Stock your fridge with your favorite items from the conveniently located grocery stores.

Staying at a Scottsdale vacation rental provides you the freedom and tranquility of home, allowing you to come and go as you please without the rush of hotel lobby traffic, the difficulty of finding good parking, having to pay for parking, being woken up by noisy neighbors, or having your door knocked on several times by over-eager housekeeping staff.  And of course, for the size of a Scottsdale vacation rental, hotel rates cannot compete, especially when looking for a place to call home for more than a week.

The Sunny Scottsdale Condo is located in a beautiful and convenient part of town offering access to many of Scottsdale’s finest offerings, including world-class restaurants, award-winning golf, shopping, family-friendly activities, spring training, and breath-taking desert trails.  The Sunny Scottsdale Condo is complete with two pools, two Jacuzzis, a fitness center, a tennis court and walking trails.  To learn more, visit www.SunnyScottsdaleCondo.com

Nestled on the border of Scottsdale and The Town of Paradise Valley, the Sunny Scottsdale Condo is surrounded by gorgeous, million dollar homes, green parks and walkways, pleasant outdoor retail and more.

Waste Management (Phoenix) Open Raises 4.4 Million for Charities – What About Next Year?

Comments Off Golf, Local Upcoming Events, Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing, Uncategorized

The Phoenix Open is one of  Scottsdale’s biggest annual events, drawing huge crowds and celebrities to enjoy “the greatest show on grass.” When in town for the Phoenix Open, many visitors prefer to stay on Scottsdale’s “resort row,”  the section of Scottsdale Road between Shea Blvd and Camelback Roads. Our sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo is located in the middle of resort row!  Anyways, The Phoenix Open is a fantastic event, and it’s a fundraiser for the Thunderbirds’ charities. Recent news articles suggest that this past year they raised over $4.4 Million  for charities. The fundraising achievement is nothing to balk at, especially considering the major economic challenges and corporate pull backs in earlier 2010. Congrats to the Thunderbirds for another outstanding Phoenix Open, AKA Waste Management Open. We look forward to the 2011 Waste Management Open, and are going to be welcoming guests to our fantastic sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo.

Scottsdale’s Soleri Bridge project is Underway

Comments Off Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing, Uncategorized

Scottsdale has done very well by continuing to invest in public art. This commitment continues to make Scottsdale a beautiful and interesting place for visitors and residents. The public arts project is clearly one of many factors making Scottsdale a top vacation destination. In 1985, the Arizona city of Scottsdale adopted a one percent for art ordinance and established the Scottsdale Public Art Program with the goal to enhance the quality of life afforded area residents and visitors. Scottsdale’s program and projects have won local, regional and national awards. Public art has taken many forms ranging from the walls of the Pima Freeway to James Turrell’s Skyspace at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. I am excited about the latest addition, and I know visitors to our Sunny Scottsdale Condo Vacation Rental will enjoy the new Soleri addition.
