Great place. Very clever and unique decor. Nice shaded patio. Within walking distance to good restaurants and light rail to downtown.
We had a great time staying at Nicole's place - my son attends ASU Phoenix campus and we were super close! Neighborhood is quiet and conveniently located to downtown life - house was adorable and perfect home away from - I would not hesitate to stay again!
I absolutely loved Nicole and Ron's guesthouse. I was in town for my daughter's wedding, and this was definitely a hideaway where I was able to relax and renew myself between the whirlwind of activities.
I will be making trips to Phx in the future and look forward to staying in this wonderful place if time allows. Ron and Nicole, thank you for your sharing your piece of paradise in the valley of the sun!
We had a great time staying at Nicole's place. My fiancé and I were in town for a wedding and found the guesthouse to be a perfect location. It's small but wonderfully cozy with all the amenities we needed. The decorations were so fun and whimsical and the neighborhood itself was a delight to walk in. We enjoyed our weekend so much.
A complete small home behind the main house in the Roosevelt Arts District. The place is neat, clean with the right amount of personality. I came for Spring Training and stayed for the local restaurants, galleries and shops.
This was a wonderful place to stay! It was my husband and i and it was the perfect amount of space. Nicole was a great host with a binder full of important information. The location was close to the Light rail to downtown Phoenix. Quiet neighborhood, beautiful stay. We would come back again if we are in Phoenix! Thank you Nicole!
We came to Phoenix to watch Spring Training and enjoy the warmth. Nicole and Ron were amazing hosts! The guesthouse was cozy and clean. The bed is SUPER comfy. There were neat surprise amenities. Also, Nicole and Ron helped answer questions about the area and gave us great recommendations. We genuinely appreciated all of their hospitality and would highly recommend this hidden gem.
This is a lovely, small apartment in an arts district. It is a converted garage and the owners have done a lovely job with the decor. There is room enough for two people but not any more than that. You couldn't cook a big meal in the kitchen but who would want to with all the wonderful restaurants so close by. The neighborhood is safe and walkable. The bathroom is spacious and the bed is delightfully comfortable. There is WiFi and it works very well. Nice outdoor patio and there is an above ground pool. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to be close to downtown.
Nicole and Ron are helpful and considerate hosts, and their guesthouse is charming. We loved their clever and creative reuse of everyday objects, and also appreciated the original artwork on the walls. The F.Q. Story Historic District is incredibly appealing. There is convenient freeway access to the entire region, plus an arts district nearby with shops and restaurants. And the delicious (and addictive) El Norteno Taqueria is only about 1.5 blocks away.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
