No matter how you vacation this home has something to offer. Once you walk into this home you may forget there was any other reason you came to visit Scottsdale. The open floor plan allows everyone to interact whether watching a movie in the living room, playing pool in the family room, or playing one of the provided board games at the bar. The fully stocked kitchen was set up to provide sufficient quantity and quality cookware to prepare meals from scratch. The Keurig and varieties of K Cups have saved more than one morning from disaster. Each bedroom comes with high-end beds, plush bedding, and a flat-screen TV. There may not be a reason to ever leave. You can prep yourself for your tee time by driving a few balls in the driving cage outdoors or challenge each other to bocce, corn hole, or ladder ball. Catch some rays on the lounge chairs, then cool off in the pool. With an outdoor TV, you can watch the game as you BBQ or place your personalized pizzas in the wood-fired pizza oven. Enjoy a glass of wine as the outdoor fireplace and landscape lighting bring a warm glow to the evening. And finally, unwind from the day’s activities in the hot tub before turning in for the night.

The house is in a nice location within Scottsdale area. The back yard is nice place to unwind from a day of golf or hiking. The house was has the needed kitchen supplies including all needed pans, coffee maker and utensils. The house is a bit tired and in need of maintenance, inside and outside. Everything from wall switches not working, light bulbs which are burned out, remote controls which did not have batteries and general condition and cleanliness of the house needs some work. Generally, an nice size house in a good location.

Erik G. Jun 2020
We came down from Colorado for a change of scenery during the pandemic. The house itself and its amenities were fine. Whoever stayed in the house before us was pretty hard on the place. We found glow sticks in the pool, ear rings and other items in the pool or around outside. The house had been cleaned “half-ass,” but Vacasa states they are not operating at 5 star service right now when you call their 800 number for assistance. We learned the next day that they are very understaffed currently. Obviously, the pool had not been cleaned or had any maintenance done before our arrival. We learned from the pool guy on the last day of our stay that the sewage smell from the pool, film on the water and discoloration of the water was a combination of chemicals and urine in the water. He had this cleaned up in two hours from treating the pool, but pretty disgusting to learn what we’d been swimming in for pretty much our entire stay. We will certainly come back to Scottsdale and AZ in the future, but probably won’t be staying here again.
Manager response:
Hello, Erik! Thanks so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We apologize that the home was not in better condition upon your arrival and regret to hear that this was your experience while staying with us. Please know this is not our standard grade of cleanliness and presentation. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our priority and the experience you had is certainly not commonplace. We appreciate you bringing these matters to our attention and allowing us the opportunity to remedy the situation on your behalf. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future.

Loved this place kids had a blast !!!!
Mary D. Jan 2020
Great location and great house! Convenient to everything in Scottsdale and PV.
Patricia M. Jan 2020
This house was very well equipped with a great backyard space. The only thing that didn't work out so well is I paid for pool heat and the heater didn't work. This house has plenty of indoor and outdoor games for kids and is in a quiet location. The outdoor fireplaces (there are two) worked great and the outdoor gas grill was nice and clean. We even took the pizza oven for a spin and it worked great!
Manager response:
Hi, Patricia! We have repaired the heater and apologize for the inconvenience of it being out during your stay.
Daniel K. Sep 2019
Everything was absolutely perfect. The backyard is beautiful and the house has everything you need.
Ashley C. Sep 2019
This was a perfect vacation home. It was clean, private and perfect for relaxing by the pool! We are hoping to come back soon to enjoy it again!
toni F. Jul 2019
This house had literally every thing we needed, pool toys, all linens, coffee! The pool felt wonderful, not too warm or cold (this is without heating). We will definitely stay at Warm Sands again without question
Tina B. Jul 2019
Great house, great location, the pizza oven was amazing, pool was perfect temp not heated during the summer. Our family of 4 loved everything this home had to offer we will be back.
Kyndra C. May 2019
This house was perfect for 6 people. Right in the middle of everything, five minutes from Kierland Commons Mall (very nice). The weather was 95+ and we had the pool heated as well which was a good choice, still refreshing. Very nice outdoor area to play games, listen to music and play cards. You won’t be disappointed.
Ryan D. Apr 2019
The home was perfect for our family of four (could easily fit more!) We swam, played games, and cooked a ton of meals on the grill. Our boys, ages 8 and 10, spent so much time outside!

Close to grocery stores and easy access to the freeway. Super quiet neighborhood. Having a garage is handy, too.

It's a full time rental so there's scratches on the doors and stuff like that but who cares--the place was gorgeous and worked perfectly for us! Our family comes to Scottsdale every April and we will definitely try to stay here from now on. We are already excited to come back!
Mary M. Mar 2019
We loved all the outside games and open floor plan inside
Kirsten D. Feb 2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Cactus Wren. The house was very clean, well stocked and comfortable for our group of 6. Cactus wren has a good layout and lots of space. The house has everything you need to feel at home. The neighbourhood feels safe and is close to shopping, hiking, etc.. The backyard is stunning and really is a selling feature of this rental. We really enjoyed the hot tub, BBQ, pizza oven, games area and fire pits. Our week there was cool for Phoenix standards (temps between 40-60F) but we are Canadians so we jumped in the pool a few times and it was great! 😀 If we were to travel down to Scottsdale again we would most definitely stay here again.
Dolores R. Feb 2019
Hot tubs and pools were very warm on arrival, all the fire spaces worked and provided a warm atmosphere for us ladies in the evening. We utilized the stone pizza oven and have the best pizza ever! We also took advantage of the little games outside and the pool table inside and we did not even eat out at a restaurant. All three days we had our meals at the house and had a wonderful wonderful time! Do make sure you read the property books ahead of time because they do have useful information, especially about the Internet. We had one slight problem but were in touch with someone within 10 minutes I think and the problem was solved. When we come back to Phoenix this will be the property that we try to get. Highly recommend it!
Doug O. Dec 2018
We really enjoyed the back yard games, hot tub, fireplaces etc aftercoming home from a day of activities and the home had everything we needed to host 8 for a memorable Thanksgiving dinner. Even got to experiment with the pizza oven. Great times!
Greg L. Oct 2018
Reasonable and solid amenities.
Jill E. Oct 2018
Wonderful home. Well equipped. If you rent in the fall, pay to heat the pool. Water was too cold. Great back yard space.
