Welcome to your menu of activities from which to choose from!! I have tested most, some need an exploration!
Photo above is my pool.
First at my home
You have your own guest bedroom with a TV, Apple TV, Fan, and a SMART Google Light - you simply say, hey Google Turn Off This Light!
Of course, the pool and waterfall, shown in the header, when it is hot are available.
I have a lovely outdoor BBQ, a fire pit, evening lights, with of course a Google Speaker with Spotify tunes.
Menus may include salmon, ribeye, chicken, vegetables, and a luscious baked potatoe.
Ice cream, snacks, popcorn, cheese, and any other items you have requested.
I have a wide selection of sparkling waters ... my current addiction.
Cereal, Oatmeal, Eggs, bacon, hash-brown potatoes, and toast are always available.
If you have an Apple Watch, you might want to try Apple Fitness with me at about 8:30 a.m. We can dance, strength, core, yoga, and mindful meditations.
In the bistro room of the house is a well-stocked refrigerator, and a nice red wine collection.
Should you have work to do online, I have an office with a couch, recliner, TV, and quality WiFi.
There are beautiful walking paths in my community, one that leads to a lake! And Pixie loves her walks.
Oh yes, if you want a wonderful massage from my mobile massage lady, I'll book it for you! $75/hour

South Mountain is south of my house and I understand many hikes for all levels -- it's on my list to go. This is a free activity. Bring your tennis shoes, hat, sunglasses. I can provide the water and water holders.
Day, Afternoon, or Evening Field Trips
Arizona Science Center I am a member and have a membership that covers a guest. Pretty cool. Downtown Phoenix. Easy paid parking with a pizza parlor and a nice restaurant next door. Has a mini iMax theater.
Wonderspaces A unique artistic display that changes all the time. I am a member and sometimes get complimentary tickets, always a discount, and there is a bar inside and I get 50% discount. The cool thing is that is located at the Fashion Center Mall in Scotsdale. So works out for a nice brunch, then Wonderspaces, then we can walk the mall and visit Gucci, Versace, and pretend to be rich.
OdySea Aquarium - A great little place to visit. Has a great restaurant and wonderful gift shop. A nice variety of sea life and a sloth, my favorite! I have a membership and receive a discount for a entry ticket.
Arizona Zoo - A wonderful nearly five mile jaunt to see all the animals. We can take our own food and drinks. I have a membership and it includes one guest!
Old Town Scotsdale - Eat, Shop, Walk -- so much to explore!
Top Golf in Scotsdale - OMG my favorite. So much fun. We will eat before but drinks and appetizers are wonderful here. The golfing is all computerized and it's just fun. Reservations required.
Bowling - will be exploring!
More to explore ... more coming soon.

Always testing but here are my current favorites ...
The Macintosh - just great food. I have had the ahi tuna steak, smoked salmon appetizer, and some other stuff. Will try to keep track. Right next door to a Trader Joes. Discovered as my friend's daughter used to work here and recommended the place. Outdoor seating.
The Culinary Dropout - I discovered this place during my travels while working for Nearpod and would stay the night near the airport before traveling back to Havasu. Just a fun place and such great food. This one is across the street from the Fashion Center Mall. Trendy, Outdoor seating.
Places I want to try ...
Compass Arizona Grill - Ummm. 360 degree revolving restaurant at the top of the Hyatt in downtown Phoenix??? Who is in? Bring a nice outfit so we don't look like tourists!! Reservations required.
