Phoenix, Arizona
Stay at El Palacio, a beautiful 1.2 acre estate at the foot of Camelback Mountain. The property is located in the heart of Arcadia, in the most sought after neighborhood in all of Phoenix. There are over 50 palm trees and breathtaking mountain views surrounding you. The estate is very unique and was inspired by the Versace mansion in South Beach, FL.

The villa includes everything you require for your stay. It is two stories, with a narrow spiral staircase leading up to the master bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has a comfortable king size bed with fine linens, a large walk-in closet, flat screen TV with cable, wi-fi.

Great spot for two for a weekend in Scottsdale, AZ. Beautiful estate grounds to enjoy and nice property managers. No kitchen or washer/dryer so makes it hard for more than a week's stay. Property up for sale-so hurry!

The property was amazing, perfectly manicured with plenty of room to relax. Located at the base of Camelback Mt. Minutes to Scottsdale and many popular attractions. The owners were very accommodating. The guest villa provided plenty of closet space and a luxurious shower for two. With a four poster canopy bed, that was very comfortable. Private deck and full use...
