Golf Sanctuary

Chilly temps are driving my clients to seek refuge as a typical snowbird might migrate to warmer locales.

With golf and villas in mind, we love reserving Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. Perched above Scottsdale, it offers fabulous views, warm spring weather, a splendid selection of private estate homes, and award-winning dining at Elements.

We can reserve exclusive golf at the private Desert Highlands, a Jack Nicklaus signature-designed course. Description of Hole 11: Double trouble…. natural wash is in play from the tee and across the fairway on your approach. Undulating green requires accurate approach. Enticing?

Not many reasons to leave the lair considering the amenities of a private casita, spa within walking distance, a chauffeur to transport you to the range, and dining at Elements. Although there are many new hot restaurants popping up in Scottsdale and Phoenix if you desire a night out.

Surfing With Big Mike – Sayulita Mexico!

Despite what you read in the paper about safety in Mexico, there are still perfectly secure spots for escape; the State Department Travel Advisory has cleared the top tourist destinations for travel.

Puerto Vallarta is 35 miles from the sleepy coastal villages of Sayulita and Nayarit. A quick flight across the border and a short drive transports you to a number of five star properties and luxury villas. Stylish, comfortable and safe havens a few miles from great surfing beaches offering beginner or expert surfers warm water and consistent waves year around. Enjoy two hundred miles of Pacific coastline with endless white sandy beaches by day and dine at the authentic cantinas lining the cobblestone streets.

Expert surf instruction with Big Mike each morning for the beginner or the pro who is interested in improving their ride. Surfing day trips via boat or van can be arranged to the neighboring north and south beach breaks. Fishing trips can also be arranged. Private lessons, luxury transport, this is a short list of offerings. The nearby jungles offer canopy tours, ATV excursions, much to do in these sleepy villages!

We can’t promise a monster swell, but we can promise consistent sets, an excellent escape and provide new meaning to the term board meeting!
