About this listing
Enjoy the comforts of home in a large studio apartment. Features a separate, fully-equipped galley kitchen, private bathroom, and comfortable queen bed. Floor beds and extra linens are available for an extra $5/person per night. Near BYU, UVU.
This is a brand-new, private studio apartment at the back of our newly-remodeled home. It features tile floors, a walk-out to a covered patio, gas log fireplace, and large-screen TV with DVD player. The modern galley kitchen is fully-equipped with microwave, fridge and range, plus dishes, pots and pans, and utensils. Enjoy all of the comforts of home, and save the expense of dining out every night.
Your stay will include complimentary weekly linen changeout.
If there are more than two members of your party we can provide comfortable, memory foam roll-out floor beds for only $10 more per night for each additional person.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a downstairs apartment with living spaces above and adjacent to it. You may hear some movement and plumbing sounds during the day and early evening, but we do our best to maintain quiet hours between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.
The apartment has a completely private entrance, separate from the main house, with secure and convenient keypad access. The back of the apartment opens onto a covered patio you may use during the summer months. (Our family also uses the patio at times, so some coordination would be required.)
Adjacent to the private bathroom is a clean utility room with ample space for storing luggage and hanging long garments.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the front part of the main house, which is separated from the apartment by a locked door. We will be available most of the time to answer questions and address any problems you may have. We love meeting new people, but understand if what you want is quiet and privacy.
The neighborhood is family-oriented and quiet, but still convenient to schools, recreation, restaurants, and shopping.
Our home was completely remodeled in 2013 and finished in the fall. The plan is to install the landscaping in 2014, so don't let the bare front yard in the photo worry you.
There are several bus routes within a few minutes' walking distance going to Orem and UVU, or toward Provo and BYU. If you are a bicycler, you will find beautiful bike paths just a couple of minutes away.

The apartment adjoins, through locked doors, both our house and another apartment, so we request that you observe quiet hours from 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.
This is a smoke-free property. We request that no alcohol be consumed on the premises.
This is our second stay with Wendy. Same as last time this is an amazing value for what you get. Very clean house in a quiet neighborhood. We look forward to staying again sometime.
Everything about this place is ideal. The location is great. The accommodations are spacious, as advertised, and perfectly maintained. And the hosts are friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful stay!
Absolutely. Wendy and her husband (and her cute little grandkids) are wonderful hosts.
This was our first AirBnB experience and we must say that Wendy has set the bar extremely high! The apartment was absolutely wonderful; so spacious and clean, and had everything we needed. The location is great - 5 mins from BYU / Provo / Orem and only 40mins from Salt Lake City. We even made it to Park City and didn't feel like it was out of the way. The views are great in the morning with the beautiful Wasatch Mountains setting the backdrop. Wendy was a great host, she left us to come and go as we pleased (keypad entry was so handy!) but we knew she was there if we needed her. Adequate parking for an SUV without feeling like we were in the way. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was very clean with a great hot shower every time. The whole place has been finished to a very high standard. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again next time we're in Utah Valley. Wendy, thank you for making our first AirBnB experience 5 stars!
This is a beautiful apartment that is very clean and comfortable. The hosts were great and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Friendly and accommodating hosts. Lovely, immaculate apartment. Exactly as pictured. Convenient location. Thank you!
The picture was very representative of the place. Updated place with some nice features. Unfortunately, we didn't notice that there were no coffee tables which are a necessity. We were unable to adjust the temperature although told we could just ask but this was inconvenient. Very minimum cable options so Netflix was essential. Fireplace is a nice feature. Blinds were helpful in keeping out the sun. Glad that there were two folding chairs to add to the 4 at the table. Lots of pillows and an extra blanket. Hard to use cable boxes since they sit so high on the mantel. This would be a great place for 1 or 2 people for a day or two but just a bit less for those who stay longer or have guests. Some cooking items helpful but we ended up eating out a lot. It appears that they are continuing to make improvements to the property. I wouldn't say that the location was in a bad neighborhood but it appeared to be the nicest house on the block.
