Wilma, I'm jumping in here because no one else has replied. I stayed there for 4 nights in a 2BR, and really don't remember the unit number but it did have nice views. My main advice is to be on the second floor. I don't see how the first floor would have any views at all. The 1BR is pretty large and luxe, so you will like the unit for sure. Have fun!
While vacationing in Arizona last April, we took a courtesy tour of Pinion Pointe. (We were curious to see what it what it was like.)
The original section (where you will stay) includes two parallel buildings with a parking lot between (which we walked through to reach the entrance). That means the main view for half the units is the parking lot and the opposite building. However, second and third floor units have a nice glimpse of the red rocks between the buildings. First floor units have no view at all because their patios are surrounded by a very tall wall (maybe 7 foot high). Though we did not see inside a first floor unit, the wall promised to make it very dark.
We did not walk around the buildings, so we cannot comment on the quality of the views from the other side of each building, but we do know Pinion Pointe is in the heart of town, so it is surrounded by other buildings that will probably block at least some view.
In addition, the new section, which is under construction, will probably block even more views as the buildings grow taller. (They were still excavating while we were there, but the sales rep told us the new buildings will be the same height as the existing buildings.)
Though a higher floor is obviously better, the sales rep said third floor units are reserved for Pinion Pointe owners only (which may/or may not be true).
You will get an incredible view of the red rocks from the top floor pool area, and the units are very nice. Even if your unit does not have a great view, there is so much to do that you will have a wonderful vacation.
