Welcome to Scottsdale!
The New York Times calls Scottsdale, Arizona one of the “hippest and most happening places” in the U.S., “the desert version of Miami Beach.” Adjacent to Phoenix in the southern Sonoran Desert, this hip little city has it all: a thriving arts scene, major league sports, 200 golf courses, and a bustling nightlife.
Scottsdale is home to spectacular annual events — the historic Arabian Horse Show featuring the crème de la crème of Arabian purebreds; the Barret-Jackson Car Show with mint condition luxury cars; spring training for several Major League Baseball teams, the Phoenix Open Golf Tournament, and a hugely popular New Year’s Party with up to 40,000 people gathering in Scottsdale to take part in the countdown.
Visit the winter home and gardens of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West. Play a round of golf on one of Scottsdale’s premier courses. Dine out at one of Scottsdale’s many fine restaurants. Find an exquisite piece of Native American art for your home. Music, art, sports, shopping and nature, it is no wonder Frank Lloyd Wright chose Scottsdale for his western outpost, calling it “the top of the world.”
Scottsdale also boasts one of the largest communities of luxury homes in the U.S., and HL Villas offers you the experience of staying in one of these beautifully crafted homes. Come back from your day’s activities in the city to your own private pool, swim under the stars or enjoy a glass of wine on your private deck. The perfect desert evenings and a night in your luxurious home away from home, and you’ll be ready to hit the ground running the next day, or maybe just stay home and relax by your pool.
Then the wind blew cool through the pinyons on the rim. There was a sweet tang of cedar and sage on the air and that indefinable fragrance peculiar to the canyon country of Arizona. ~Zane Grey, The Call of the Canyon, 1924
