Many restaurant, fast food, and grocery options are only a 1/2 mile away. The city bus service (Phoenix Metro) stops 1/4 mile north of the house and can take you to the airport or ASU main campus/downtown Tempe. The Legacy and Raven Golf Clubs are just across Baseline Road to the north of us.
Other Things to Note
The rooms are both on the second floor, which will require going up stairs. Since we have two rooms listed separately, there could be another guest staying in the room next to yours who would share the bathroom with you. Each guest room comes with a key so you can lock the door when you are out.
Please let us know what time you plan to arrive on your first day and depart on your last day.
No smoking indoors.
If you would like to bring a pet with you, let us know in advance because it may not work out depending on the circumstances.
The internet and appliances are available for you to use.
We have two listings on Airbnb, so unless you are booking for 3 or more people, the booking is only for the room with the full size bed and brown desk (A room).
Don't hesitate to ask if you need anything or have any questions.
I really enjoyed my stay with Alana and Richard. They were friendly, warm, and very welcoming. Their home was inviting, the bed comfortable and I had a great night's sleep there. Call me silly, but I especially loved the soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the shower (probably b/c I didn't bring my own soap). Thank you Alana and Richard for being a fun part of a great Phoenix trip. I only stayed there for one night before moving onto my next locale, and I was sad to leave because I was so comfortable there!
This place was exactly as advertised if not better. I couldn't have imagined a more clean, comfortable space to lay my head for the weekend. Both Alana and Richard were extremely nice though I did spend more time speaking with Alana during my stay. She was very helpful with providing things for me to do based on my interests. If I ever go back to Phoenix, I can't say that I'd ever stay anywhere else. Thanks for everything.!
I only spent 7 hours at thier house but Richard was very nice and greeted upon my late arrival. Beautiful home wish I had mire time to enjoy it.
Rich and Alana were wonderful hosts! Definitely a beyond pleasant experience.
Id arrived mid afternoon and was greeted by Alana with great warmth. She showed me to my room and we chatted for a great deal of time. She and her husband have been sharing their home for years; this place was designed with AirBNB guests in mind.
The two rentable rooms are situated on the far end of the upper floor with their bathroom and that wonderful loft-space that I hardly ever left. Id have slept there if other guests werent around. Rich and Alanas room is on the far left; that entire right side feels all your own. Its impossible to feel like you're invading on someones house.
The lower floor is riddled with board games, magazines, books, and puzzles to keep you entertained your entire stay if traveling alone like I was. My days consisted of waking up, sitting on the back patio with a cup of coffee and a sketchbook, then going up to the loft with my meals and books.
Rich and Alana are beyond generous; they offered me to join them for dinner the first night, and always asked how my day was when they got home from work. In the event of me possibly needing another night in an otherwise already booked home, they were kind enough to arrange a pseudo-room in their office.
I would recommend this couple to anyone passing through phoenix- anyone, and will definitely return if I find myself in the south.
I just needed a place to stay for one night in Phoenix. Straightforward and comfortable experience, instant wifi connection. Quiet room in quiet neighborhood. Spacious home with plenty of privacy. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful with suggestions for places to eat. Recommend this listing for ease of transaction and stay.
