Originally from Fargo, ND, working for Arizona State in Washington, DC....crazy, huh?
Amazing hosts at a great location. Only a few minutes walk from the subway with direct access to the Washington Mall. The place was immaculately clean and the free-roaming cats were friendly. They were even 'dog-sitting' an adorable well-trained dog while we were there too. Would love to stay again next time in DC.
Alicia was a very gracious host and helped make my stay a pleasant experience. Everything went very smoothly and I couldn't have asked for more. Her condo was a great alternative to a hotel stay and I would definitely recommend it for others.
We had such a fun trip! Alicia provided a great place for an awesome value and was helpful showing us around PHX, AZ. I couldn't have asked for a better hostess!
Pros: The condos are nice and people are great. Was able to use all the amenities (pool, gym, grill), and for the price you cant beat it. Plus the hostess is very nice and accommodating and is always available if you need to get in touch with her.
Cons: The restrooms were not cleaned, the rug is beyond needing to be cleaned, needs to be replaced and if you are not use to having pets indoors the smell of a dirty cat litter box is penetrating beyond belief although there was no cat litter box inside the condo.
We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our holiday and two nights at the end and enjoyed it very much. The room was excellent value. Alicia was a hospitable, helpful and relaxed hostess and left us the run of the facilities. By our request, we shared the condo with a litter of charming, temporarily fostered kittens who provided far better entertainment than a TV. "Aunt Chillada's" served great Mexican meals. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and easy access to the sights of Phoenix (Casa Grande ruin, Desert Botanical Garden, Taliesen, Heard Museum, Museum of Art and Tempe University Institute of Ceramic Reasearch collection of ceramics). There was no one following us immediately in our room on the day we were leaving for a late fllight out of Phoenix, so Alicia very kindly invited us to make use of the room throughout the day. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Phoenix.
I recommend Alicia and her apartment to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Phoenix. She accommodated me on short notice, and was actually traveling at the time, so I basically had the whole place to myself. The location and property are great, and the apartment has a really friendly feel. To top it all off, Alicia had been fostering kittens at her apartment at that time, so I had five of the cutest playmates I could have asked for. I would have paid twice as much just for that! Thanks a lot for such a great stay.
Alicia's place is conveniently located for all East Valley places. She is a gracious host. There's a great ceiling fan in the bedroom!
The condo was just what we needed, and Alicia is a fantastic host! She provided brochures of local events/activities, and even a restaurant, The Farm! The Farm was incredible, and we would have never found it without Alicia.
The bed was comfortable, and the room large enough for 2-3 people. We had access to the pool, and the gym; a great way to spend the afternoon.
Alicia was also very respectful of our space. She was hospitable but never intrusive. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm traveling to Phoenix.
As a first time Airbnb user, I was very skeptical. But, Alicia was great about answering all my questions and addressing my concerns. The photos of her place are truly accurate. I was lucky to have the bigger room since Alicia was out of town. I briefly saw another guest, but for the most part, I had the place to myself, which I definitely enjoyed. The complex is gated, and the pool was clean. Most of the people I saw around were young, sprinkled in with a few older guests and ones with kids. I would stay here again and really appreciated an honest depiction of the place.
A nice clean and simple apartment close to the airport with a very friendly hostess who asks all the right questions and makes you feel at home. I'd definitely stay here again were I to find myself in the Phoenix area again.
Alicia was an incredible guest. She was very understanding about some of the remodeling I am doing and great to talk to. I would definitely rent to her again or anyone she knows. Good people!
Alicia and two lady friends came for three nights to a workshop in Asheville. They were very quiet, had no requests or complaints, and for me it was a very enjoyable result. I'd invite them to return anytime.
Alicia and Mark were awesome guests! My mom really enjoyed hosting them and would love for them to come anytime for another visit with both she and Panda.
Alicia and her boyfriend were great. They were super flexible, good at communicating and left everything in order. I would definitely have them back the next time they're in SF
It was great having Alicia stay in the guest suite!
Alicia is a good friend, and very hospitable. Her condo is in a great location, plenty of parking, and updated with super nice appliances. I'm also just in love with her super cute cat.
