One of my favorite luxurious communities in Paradise Valley, Arizona is Colonia Miramonte. The name meaning “Colony with a Mountain View”, has a luxurious mountain view of the Camelback and Mummy mountains, and is located adjacent to Camelback Inn. Construction of Colonia Miramonte started in the mid 60s with the construction of homes on the site where the horse stables were located from the Camelback Inn. Today Colonia Miramonte is a gated community that has 82 homes. It is close in proximity to downtown Phoenix, Old Town Scottsdale, and the airport and shares some of the amenities as the resort. Most of the homes in Colonia Miramonte were built in the mid 60s, but still have an elegant timeless appeal. Camelback Inn and Colonia Miramonte have a lot to offer with their luxurious mountain views, and their all around exclusiveness. Residents of Colonia Miramonte can enjoy many of the amenities of Camelback Inn.
