About this listing
Private updated modern condo in a mid-century modern building surrounded by a lush garden. It's fully stocked. Walk to local restaurants or enjoy some quiet time. Everything is close: hiking, airport, convention center, airport, downtown.
The bedroom features a queen bed with high quality bedding. Open up the patio doors to let in fresh air or just let the light filter in.
Beautiful contemporary modern space in Uptown Phoenix.
Renovated with contemporary finishes to match the modern architectural style of the building. That means clean lines, simple decorations and great utility. The focus is on less clutter and more quality. Expect comfort, clarity, peace, cleanliness and utility.
It's a space created to be concrete, utilitarian, clean and relaxing. When composing it, we wanted to create a feeling of comfort for the body and the mind: a relaxing space.
The living area is open from the kitchen to the living room, with a kitchen island as a break between the two. The island serves as a dining table.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cups, pans, utensils and anything you need to create a great meal or you can just put something in the toaster oven and make it easy. Note: there is no microwave - food really tastes better from the toaster and only take a bit longer than nuking it in the microwave.
The living area has lots of seating if you want to invite guests or simply find you own comfortable way to read one of the magazines or books or to watch TV: connect to Netflix and other apps through Apple TV - or on your laptop via the fast WiFi.
The bedroom with a queen bed is bright with a sliding door to the patio with a seating area. We provide high quality bedding so you sleep in comfort. It's lovely to sleep here with the sliding door open at night. There are extra pillows and throws in the closet if you need them.
The bathroom is a favorite of mine. For a small space it sure feels open. Double sinks, a large shower all make it very usable. Soap, shampoo, hair blower are all here as are high quality heavy weight luxury towels.
Included also: onside laundry.
Covered parking in the back.
Need space for bikes? Just ask, we has a storage shed where you can keep them.
You have access to a front fenced yard with a table and chairs shaded by two citrus trees and the more private backyard with lots of grass, shade, tables, chairs, flowers and a grill.
The back yard is shared, please feel comfortable using it: relax on the lounge chairs, get a tan or sit on the grass with a book and smell the roses. There are now 11 rose bushes. Many flower year long.
Interaction with Guests
The place is all yours. It's as private as you want or we're here next door if you have questions about getting around or which restaurants to go to. Access is via a lockbox, but we can meet you as well: your choice.
This area is Uptown Phoenix: know for being green, for the scent of orange blossoms in the spring, irrigated lots, mature trees, ranch and modern home.
It's old Phoenix. Many of the homes are older with character and built to last. This area used to be all orange groves and it shows. Some of the citrus trees are original.
It's the middle of the city yet you can hear chickens, you may see a horse and some people have lamas: it's got character for sure.
What I love about it besides what I wrote is that it's near so many restaurants - most of the highly rated and locally owned, the Phoenix Mountains with hiking trails, several parks, one with 2 lakes, the freeway is near by and just a bit farther are downtown Phoenix, midtown Phoenix and the Biltmore area. The airport is 15 minutes away and the convention center 18 minutes. Everything is so close.
There are a few great restaurants near-by, within walking distance:
Rokerij or Richardson's which offers New Mexican food and hve been here forever.
Vigs Uptown, Dick's Hideaway is like it sounds, a hideaway with no sign announcing it, except that sign that states, "unaccompanied children will be given coffee and a free kitten."
It's right next to Luci's: a local market where many of the neighbors like to hang out. A bit further, but still close there are other great places to eat and a few micro breweries. If you want recommendations let me know.
Like most of Phoenix, without a car it's difficult to get around. Don't count on public transportation. A bike, though, works great.
We're near the I-51 freeway so access to places like the Convention Center is quick: 15 minutes - similar for the airport.

Loved the place! Nice and quiet place to relax. Looks exactly like the pictures. There's definitely stuff to do within a short drive but not a lot walking distance. Overall we loved it and would come stay again
The condo is super tidy and modern. I really like the Google nest equipped with the condo. My husband and I really enjoy staying there. Highly recommend!
Artur's rental was clean and very welcoming. The bed was comfortable, the shower warm, and he had bottled water waiting for us in the fridge. We enjoyed our time and would certainly stay with him again.
The apartment is really well equipped with all the comforts and it is airy, full of light and spotlessly clean. It has a great back garden to enjoy with lots of green areas, the shower is great and the bed comfortable although a little on the small side. Check in and out worked a breeze with very easy instructions on how to get and drop off keys. We didn't meet Artur but this was fine as we only stayed 2 nights and were away most of the day anyway. Great and fast communication with him and highly recommended, we would stay again in a heartbeat!
Artur gets the instantaneous response award! No matter what time of day, he was in great communication. He went above and beyond, storing food for us and moving it over to his other property when we moved over there. He also gave us great cycling tips. The property was spotless and beautifully decorated, and the various outdoor seating areas were just lovely. We found the location to be ideal with it very easy to get everywhere from there on both bike and by car. Great value for the money and a seamless experience.
This place was fantastic. Parking was a breeze and the place had everything you would need. It's exactly as described and pictured. The location couldn't have been better. Very close to some great restaurants, shopping, and activities.
The hosts made us feel very welcomed, as if we'd been tenants for years.
I've spent a lot of time in Phoenix over the past 10+ years and I will definitely stay at this condo again.
It was a pleasure staying in Artur's apartment. The place is so well decorated and convenient. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Phoenix. It's a shame we only stayed one night!

About the Host, Artur
Hi, When in Phoenix, I work from home - mostly in performance marketing and on my real estate properties. I enjoy mowing lawns and gardening while sipping beer or wine. And, riding my bike around the city or on the mountains trails near-by.
When I travel I do it as a 'rational flaneur': I don't make plans, rather move along and change as I get new information. That's always worked out great for me. Often I take a bike or rent a bike where ever I go. Some of the best memories I have are on heavy and uncomfortable rental bikes - yeah, I'm even smiling now thinking about it. While I feel the pull toward Europe mostly, I would like to go to South America.
I have three condos on Airbnb. It's my goal to to provide the kind of place I would like to stay in. I like comfort, style, utility and above all cleanliness and I don't skimp on providing those in my condos.
My motto, if I have to choose one is, Tempus Edax Rerum - time devours everything.
