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. Try NOT to eat at McDonalds. There are many amazing local restaurants nearby. 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.
We had a wonderful, although too short lived experience at Sky's place. His guesthouse and the premises of the house are very accommodating. The place is compact and has everything needed with very convenient and creative furniture arrangements. We had to wake up and leave early, but upon exiting we realized that the eggs in the fridge must have been from the chickens in his garden. If only we had time for a true homemade omelette! Will need to come back. Thanks, Skye!
I loved staying here! Sky was very sweet and accommodating and the apt was lovely. There was cold beer in the fridge and within walking distance of some cute restaurants. Great listing!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sky's guest house. The location is ideal and it's well appointed with just about anything you need...extra points for the beer in the refrigerator. We'll definitely check availability on our next trip. Awesome host, awesome guest house!
Great spot! We were bummed we couldn't stay longer and hang in the back area. We arrived to a fridge full of fresh eggs, water, juice, and beer.Thanks!
Sky's guest house was perfectly amazing! Very clean, well organized and lots of information about the area. Easy access with code and we were in and out with no problems! I wish we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be back and would love to stay here again!
We absolutely loved the place! Everything was just like in the pictures. Sky gave us great recommendations about restaurants and things to do and see. Location was great! It was easy to get around Phoenix. We would (and probably will) stay there again!
Although we did not get to meet Sky, she has been very communicative and check in & check out was convenient. The house was cozy - although it was tight for 3 people as the couch was a bit small. The house is conveniently placed and we managed to have a really lovely breakfast in the garden before heading off. Thanks for the stay!

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, screamed on a bobsled down the Olympic track in Innsbruck, rode a camel on the beach in Abu Dhabi, meandered through the Siq to witness Petra's beauty, shopped my way through Istanbul's Grand Bazar, and danced until 6am at Pacha in Ibiza.
The world is my sandbox.
Can you pass me that little plastic shovel please?
