It's hard to do the Grand Canyon as a day trip and really enjoy your time there. Instead fly into Phoenix and spend 1 or 2 nights here then spend a night in Flagstaff or at canyon itself. 4 1/2 hr drive from Phoenix.
Also it's not too early to Inquire about Super Bowl 2015 being hosted in Glendale, AZ. We will be renting out the guest house and our main home as one rental which can accommodate 6-8 guests with 4-5 night minimum. Downtown Phoenix will be home to most of the NFL activities. It's listed for $1500 per night. That's less than $200 per person and far less than hotels will be charging. Please inquire before booking.

Interaction with Guests
I'm always around as I work from home so chances are I'll be here to show you around - unless I'm traveling the world. In that case just call me if you need anything.
Our neighborhood has been referred to as "Funky Town" by Phoenix Magazine. There are lots of artists who call Coronado home as well as many great restaurants within walking distance. Many people (like us!) keep chickens in their backyard and I've even see a gentleman take his miniature "service" pony for a walk down the street. Welcome to Funky Town.
The nearest bus stop is on 7th Street and is only a 3-4 minute walk away. The closest light-rail station is only a 10-12 minute walk from the guest house.
Other Things to Note
Wow that's a lot of yellow stars.
Try the fresh eggs for breakfast or try the local restaurants. Do NOT eat at McDonalds. The shower is STRONG and you will never feel so clean...so sing in the shower. The toilet flush is strong and loud...don't let it startle you. Travel more and be happy...go on and book the ticket. Pets are ALWAYS welcome.
Enjoy your stay in Phoenix.
Best Air bnb I have ever stayed in. The place was impeccable and it had so many perks. If you're going to Phoenix, stay here.
Very homey and well designed! The pictures are accurate and Sky was very on point with communication and directions. I would recommend Sky's listing to anyone visiting Phoenix!
This was the perfect getaway and our only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay. Sky even had beer in the fridge for us, which after driving for 8 hours was amazing. This is really like having your own studio to yourself and despite it being over 100 degrees the temperature in this guest house was nice and cool due to the AC being on. The shower definitely has a strong stream but I never felt cleaner. We didn't want to leave this airbnb, and that's really a first for us. I would love to stay here again in the future. Thank you!
While we did not get the chance to meet Sky in person, his accommodations go above and beyond. He turned the a/c on so it was cool when we got in, and there were beers in the fridge waiting for us. He has a list of suggested restaurants in the area, which my wife really liked. We walked to one for dinner and were not disappointed. The decor at the guest house is modern and the bed is super comfy. Very clean. Fresh eggs from Sky's coop in the fridge were great for breakfast, and we even took a few for our next destination. Nice outdoor area with firepit, although we did not make use as we were just there for the night. Overall, this stay has been my best Airbnb experience.
We loved our stay here. Its so charming as described and after 7 days of camping this guest house was perfect last pit-stop for our trip. We loved the fresh chicken eggs and ambience of this place.
Sky kept in great contact with us and made it very easy for us. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Sky as we were only here for one night (wished it was longer!!) but he was an amazing host.
The place itself was immaculate and had everything (and more) that you would need. Would defiantly return if I was in Phoenix again!

About the Host, Sky
I married my best friend on a beach in Mexico, rode bicycles with the locals on the streets of Beijing, hiked the hill towns of the Cinque Terra in Italy, explored 12th century Cambodian temples, swam with sharks in Bora Bora, been offered a beer on the Great Wall, sat 5 feet from wild orangutans in the Sumatran jungle, found heaven in the Alps of Switzerland, played with baby elephants in Thailand, tried speaking Arabic to shopkeepers in Marrakech, found pura vida in Costa Rica, saw what a wall can do in Berlin, marveled at Eiffel's Tower, experienced Dutch tolerance in Amsterdam, walked the Cliffs of Mohr, hiked Machu Picchu, bobsledded down the Olympic track in Innsbruck, rode a camel on the beach in Abu Dhabi, meandered through the Siq to witness Petra's beauty, and shopped my way through Istanbul's Grand Bazar.
The world is my sandbox.
Can you pass me that little plastic shovel please?
