About Dan Elkins
Both Dan and Terry grew up in the Seattle area. They met at Bellevue High School where they graduated together in 1972, and were married 45 years ago. Dan worked as a mechanic and manufacturing engineer for Boeing for over 13 years before moving to Scottsdale 24 years ago. He finished his career as a Technical Writer and is now retired from Honeywell in order to have free time to write books and take mission trips to India. Terry is currently a respiratory therapist in an adult ICU for a major Phoenix hospital. We both love to share our home in Scottsdale and meet new friends!
Dan Elkins purchased this House in 2001
Why Dan Elkins chose Paradise Valley Village
We fell in love with North Scottsdale and bought this home because of its great location. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac but still close to stores, restaurants, golf courses, hiking trails, and major freeways. You can see beautiful sunrises over the mountains just east of us if you are early risers.
What makes this House unique
The backyard is a tropical oasis in the Arizona desert. The pool is surrounded by lush plants and has a soothing water fall. Once you sit back in our comfy chairs you won't want to leave!

Cozi place. Perfect for families
Thank you for staying in our guest suite!
Very clean great place No Kitchen

Hi Mike. Our description on this website makes it clear that the Guest Suite has a kitchenette, but not a full kitchen. All cooking besides microwave cooking can be done on an outside propane grill provided at no additional charge, which is located next to the swimming pool. It is always helpful to read the description of a VRBO property before booking. Thanks.
Great place, great people
Loved the house. Clean and comfortable. Dan and Teri are super nice people and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the Scottsdale area
Thanks Jim. Such a pleasure meeting your nice family. Hope to see you again!
Perfect retreat in the desert, round 2
This is the second year in a row we've stayed in Dan and Terry's guest suite and it was absolutely perfect once again. They're two for two in our book. They have two nice sized bedrooms and very comfortable beds. The living room area was perfect for our size and needs. One of our favorite things to do is sit outside in the back yard by the pool. You can either choose to get some sun or sit under the umbrella and relax with coffee/book. The owners have lived in Phoenix for years, so if you need recommendations of places to go/things to check out they won't let you down. They definitely have a personalized approach which is second to none. We can't wait to visit again in 2020 for spring training. Thank you Dan and Terry!
Thank you for coming to our guest suite! We're looking forward to seeing you again in 2020! Always a pleasure having you as a guest. (So glad the weather was so nice during your 5-day stay!)
Clean home. Responsive owner.
Very clean, roomy and comfortable home conveniently located in North Scottsdale. Owner is readily available and helpful. Note in the listing that there is no kitchen. There is a small refrigerator but not suitable for dining in.
Michael and his friends were very friendly to have as guests. I'm sorry for the disappointment of no kitchen. I've tried to make this clear in my property description (see below), plus I marked "no kitchen" in the property details page (several guests have admitted to not reading the property description carefully):
"The Guest Suite has 2 bedrooms; one with a queen bed and sitting area, the other is a cheerful room with 2 twin beds. Both bedrooms have walk-in closets. It includes a bathroom with 2 sinks and a Jacuzzi tub with shower, a living room, a dining room with a buffet equipped with dishes and silverware, a small refrigerator/freezer, a microwave, and a Keurig for coffee or tea (no kitchen available)."
A great fit for a family that can go w/o a full kitchen
Charming 2 bedroom 1 bath suite in owners house worked for our family. While I could have used an easier way to wash dishes everything else we needed was there. (It was my fault not reading the details that there was not a full kitchen and house is a duplex with owners onsite) Though the owners are living in the other half of the house, we still felt a good deal of privacy with the setup. The home was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The kids LOVED all the toys & games along with the big jetted tub. Dan was a wonderful host to us.
Thank you for your nice review Renea! We wish we could offer our guests a full kitchen, but since it's not possible, we've tried to make this clear in our property description. Thanks for your honest feedback. And I'm thrilled that your children had a good time, especially with the toys and games!
