Completely private updated modern condo apartment in a mid-century modern building surrounded by a lush garden. Hike in the Phoenix mountains, walk to restaurants, ride to the town, or enjoy some quiet time. Everything is close. Check the reviews.
Beautiful contemporary modern space in North Central 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.
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.
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.
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 or connect to Netflix and other apps through Apple TV - or on your laptop connected to the fast WiFi.
The bedroom with a queen bed is bright with a sliding door to the patio. 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.
Guests 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.
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 is North Central Phoenix: know for being green, for the scent of orange blossoms in the spring, irrigated lots, mature trees, large ranch and modern home.
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.
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 a lake, the freeway is near by and just a bit farther are downtown Phoenix, midtown Phoenix and the Biltmore area. Everything is so close.
There are a few great restaurants near-by, even within walking distance.
Rokerij or Richardson's which offers New Mexican food and has 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.

Artur's condo is wonderful! The space is large and comfortable and the decor relaxing. The kitchen has everything we needed to prepare all our meals - stocked up at Trader Joes and had gourmet meals. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient for shopping and it was a short drive to each of the hikes we took. Artur is always available and very gracious. We hope his condo will be available the next time we are in Phoenix.
My stay at Artur's was just what I wanted. The place was quaint and well designed with amazing light and a beautiful backyard. My boyfriend and I had been camping and this was the perfect place to come home to and relax. Artur was very prompt in his response and attentive during the booking process which made it easy and stress free. I wish I had more time to stay in Arizona so I will definitely be back and will absolutely look at staying at Artur's airbnb spot again!
The condo was in an older, quiet neighborhood close to freeway and stores. It was very clean, comfortable and attractive. The linens were good quality. Artur had stocked the living area with interesting books and magazines. The kitchen was equipped with enough tools for us to cook our simple meals. The range and refrigerator were nice. The fridge contained condiments, wine and beer. Most were organic. This was unexpected and appreciated. Coffee making was with a press, which we don't use at home, but used and enjoyed at the condo. There were overhead fans that circulated air well. Cars are parked under a carport located in a lit alleyway. There was plenty of room. Artur was very responsive through our entire transaction. The units are close, so you do occasionally hear neighbors when the doors are open. The condo was a great value.
Artur and Joanna were great hosts- their place was clean with a beautiful ambience and great location. I hope they'll have me again someday!
Arthur's place was wonderful. We loved the location, the decor, the coziness. This was our first experience with air B and B and it was very positive! Thank you, Artur. We would definitely recommend this place.
As one of my first airbnb experiences, I was thoroughly impressed. Artur was easy to get a hold of and very accommodating when I had a sudden change of plans in my trip. Lovely space and very convenient.
Wonderful cozy condo, exactly as pictured and described. We enjoyed the hip vibe, great books, and the birds in the yard in the mornings, just beautiful. This was a clean, comfortable, and well located place for our Phoenix adventures. Starbucks nearby too!

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 two 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.
