Our Home: Located in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona, in a quiet upscale neighborhood surrounded by unique architectural styles integrated within desert landscape and inspired by Native American cultural references. Our home merges together the Santa Fe Pueblo style in the exterior design with a Japanese (sukyia) design in the interior. The interior spaces are defined by a minimalist, zen-like, use of space, furniture, and light. The sukyia style, evident in the grand room, seamlessly transitions to an outdoor Japanese garden.
The house has two formal bedrooms, a multi-use room that can transform into an extra bedroom, a grand room, and a large family room, with 3300 square feet (305 square meters) of living space. The house is networked, has cable TV, DVR/DVD, and access to an Amazon Prime Video collection.
Exploring the beauty and excitement of Scottsdale and nearby Phoenix metropolitan areas is made easier through use of a rental vehicle. The house is about six miles from Old Town Scottsdale, the main cultural and entertainment hub of the city, and about 15 miles from downtown Phoenix. Access to main freeways is easy and fast allowing you to visit Sedona, the Grand Canyon, or other amazing features of this Southwest region, including just enjoying time downtown. For a more comprehensive look into the exciting offerings of the city feel free to visit the following sites: tripadvisor and experiencescottsdale.
If you are a garden or plant lover, or a Japanese culture admirer, you are going to greatly enjoy visiting our home.
One of the many passions we indulge in is music and performing arts. Two or three times a year we host a music salon at our home.
Although our house can sleep more, we prefer guests/groups with no more than four people of adult age, or with mature teens. No pets, non-smokers (or outside smokers only).
We would consider both a simultaneous and non-simultaneous swap but prefer the non-simultaneous option because of flexibility offered by the points.
In closing this visit to our home, please remember that in our corner of the world the weather is the most magnificent attraction, of course except for June, July, and August. While the Northern hemisphere, and most of the United States, is under snow, low temperatures, and ugly skies, here we are in paradise. The weather is gorgeous with clear blue skies, mild temperatures, and amazing colors for a full nine months of the year. We endure the scorching heat for the beauty and wonderful weather that follows the rest of the year!
Our home is located in Scottsdale, an upscale suburb of Phoenix. The house is about 7 miles from Old Town Scottsdale and 15 miles from Phoenix.

Given the distances to everywhere the guests need to have transportation. Public transportation exists but is not an option for our location.
