La Privada is first class
I have lived here for a number of years and I have had a very good experience. The staff here, particularly Danica and Alexis, are efficient and professional and take care of all my needs quickly and with a smile. The maintenance crew is top notch. The newly planted landscape is really going to be lovely this spring. This community is in an excellent location with all shopping needs within a 10 minute drive or a short walk to the MERCADO which has Walgreen's, several good restaurants, a gas station, dance studio and of course, PLANET FITNESS. The property is wonderfully managed and improvements are constantly being implemented. I am very happy living here! Kate Olmscheid

There is much in the positive & favorable to say about residing here at La Privada for the past year & five months. My first attraction was a visual one as I drove in the main gate entrance greeted with expansive pristine grounds & detailed landscaping, vibrant floral colors, lush lawn areas & gorgeous trees of diversity. Like a frame on a painting canvas with charming old-world Swiss Chalet brink enhanced European style buidlings with court yards, blending harmoniously with splashes of modern contemporary. The main pool, jacuzzi, bbq & firepit areas are spacious, tastefully luxurious & inviting, the min pool area is like a hidden sanctuary with a relaxing rock water feature for those that prefer a less active spot. This property is far from the newer cookie cutter rental communities where you feel like you are squeezed into a sardine can lacking in uniqueness. Yes of course there are always the "wish they had this or that" to rental properties. I see it as advisable to be realistic when one is not custom home building, to fairly weigh out their preferences & personal priorities. I would give La Privada 5 full stars, vs 4 & 1/2 if the kitchen & bath cabinets were upgraded & my preference is gas vs wood burning fire places, & better sound insulation (bldg codes in the '70's are not as they are now). But I view the pluses far outweigh the minuses. Another plus is the location, it could not be be more ideal, convenient & out of the busy hustle, but so nearby to everything that is happening. No matter your hobbies, activities or athletics, this area has it all, just within a few mins drive or even walk. But wait.....what else makes La Privad well worth your consideration & an in person visit, is the Staff here! The two teams of personable, courteous, well polished & capable professionals, from the ladies in the Leasing Office under the gracious & capable leadership of Arrianna to the highly skilled quick responding Maintenance team led by an attention to detail & efficient Alex...well put it all together & you have a most well seasoned two team effort doing their best to accomodate & offer their residents a pleasant place to call home. A definite WIN WIN! I see no reason why I will not be renewing my lease this year & continue enjoying my "heart has found it's home" experience here at lovely La Privada at Scottsdale Ranch.


We just moved in and it has been a very good experiance so far. Everything that I asked to be fixed has been. Very nice neighborhood and an excellent elementry in district for my son. ❤ rent is very reasonable for the space.



I have lived at La Privada for about 2 years now. It is true they have been through some changes in management . I read a lot of these reviews on here. Some...


Since I moved here I have had a great experience! The staff is so nice and friendly not to mention very accommodating. Upon arrival my unit was cleaned and Alexis and Danika ensured that if we needed anything that they are just a call away to assist. I highly recommend this complex it is clean and not too many people live here. It’s very quiet too! :-)

My wife and I lived at La Privada for seven years - through several ownership changes. A gorgeous community, good amenities, very sound proofed,with good layouts, and the ever changing staff was generally very friendly. Sadly, the next to last owners decided to repaint the complex in darker colors, causing utility bills to rise and apartments to run hotter. Since the complex buyers were from the NW, they chose darker NW colors instead of the more practical and way more attractive SW colors. It does seem silly to have a front guard gate and no guard, as the per unit cost to cover this would be minimal. This could easily be a five star complex with a few changes mentioned elsewhere on this site. Some structural, some administrative. Bookkeeping has never been the strong point at La Privada, and my recommendation is that you keep your own rent documentation and records - you may need them. A major plus when we lived here was the world class service provided by the maintenance department, especially by Phil.


Fantastic place ,rooms are spacious. Today we had to replace a window pane.I called Cindy and within 15 minutes it was done by Phil. A great maintenance service!!


Affordable, good mix of folks, all ages. 1 covered parking stall per unit. 2 pools. Clean grounds, walking distance to shops, groc, banks, etc. Gym, community center. Nice older all around complex.
