Where is North Scottsdale?
North Scottsdale is bordered by Scottsdale Road to the west, Cactus Road to the south, McDowell Mountain Regional Park to the east, and Pinnacle Peak to the north. On a map, the neighborhood is located north of Old Town Scottsdale and south of Cave Creek and Carefree. This northern section of the Phoenix Metro area is home to many great neighborhoods with southwestern style exteriors and large open floor plans.
What Are Vacation Rentals?
When you plan a trip to Scottsdale, you generally first have to figure out where you will be staying. Traditionally people think of staying in a small hotel room or resort. This is always problematic because you have people double bunking in small hotel rooms that have no real amenities to help you enjoy your stay. We suggest trying out a vacation rental instead. North Scottsdale vacation rentals are full homes, townhomes, or condos that are available to rent and priced competitively with hotel and resort prices. Unlike similar services where you rent a room in a home, these rentals give you access to the entire home and the peace and privacy that goes with it.
Perks and Amenities of Our North Scottsdale Rentals
There are many perks and amenities that come with renting a vacation home. The biggest and most important feature of a vacation rental is access to a fully equipped kitchen. Since vacation rentals give you access to an entire home, many come with a kitchen that is stocked with plates, silverware, pots and pans, cups, and anything else you may need to cook and enjoy a full meal. Having access to a full kitchen is really underrated when staying away from home. A bulk of the costs associated with a vacation comes with eating out for every meal. This kitchen will allow you to cut back on your food spending and eat some of your meals at home rather than eating out. Further, if you are anything like us, you need a morning cup of coffee to get you going, and there is nothing worse than hotel coffee. You are able to custom make your coffee to your liking in your vacation rental. North Scottsdale rentals also have pristine views of the mountains surrounding the Phoenix Metro area and close access to local restaurants and entertainment districts. You can enjoy a great meal in your vacation home and soak in every bit of beauty that lies around this amazing area.
Dining and Entertainment
North Scottsdale is also home to amazing restaurants to supplement your home cooked meals in your vacation rental. Market Street at DC Ranch is home to upscale restaurants like Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and cozy local spots like The Living Room Wine Café & Lounge. Scottsdale Quarter, located on the North Scottsdale’s edge, features local restaurants like the popular True Food Kitchen, a restaurant with a rotating menu that features healthy, chef-inspired dishes. The most well-known place for Scottsdale restaurants is the Old Town district. This is the downtown area of Scottsdale and is home to loads of local restaurants, bars, and entertainment options to enjoy.
Along with options for meals, North Scottsdale is also home to great stores and other shopping opportunities. Old Town Scottsdale is full of local shops that sell just about everything you can imagine from clothing and accessories to Native American art. Outdoor malls like Scottsdale Quarter also feature an abundance of service providers, like Drybar, and family-friendly events on The Quad, like Summer Fridays from June to August, when kids can play on the splash pad.
Finally, Scottsdale is also home to amazing entertainment options. Just east of the North Scottsdale area is the large Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community Talking Stick Resort. This is a large casino and entertainment area that has many amazing things to do. In the spring this area is home to the spring training stadiums of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies. The resort itself also has amazing lights that line every one of the 20 floors to provide a great night light spectacular. This can be viewed from the TopGolf location that lies just west of the resort. This is a great place to practice some drives before you check out any one of the amazing, top quality golf courses that call Scottsdale home. There are almost infinite things to do while you are staying in our North Scottsdale vacation rentals. Reserve your stay today with Porter Vacation Rentals!
