Property description

This 1600 square foot, smoke-free guesthouse is tucked behind the main 1924 residence in the Los Olivos Historic District in central Phoenix. The guesthouse is hidden in the latest historic district added to the Phoenix register. The Los Olivos district, though tiny, includes 16 houses built on acre lots in the 1910's and 1920's, and is one of downtown's most elite neighborhoods. Enjoy uptown freedom and downtown convenience. The strengths of this rental are design, location and privacy.

The interior was designed for a sleek, simple, open feel. The sports and cultural offerings of downtown Phoenix are less than two miles away. The central location puts any of the valley’s 200+ golf courses within easy reach.

This newly constructed guesthouse features upscale, artistic, design throughout - a true labor of love by the owner. The kitchen has granite counters with stainless steel accents and includes high-end appliances. The floors are a cool scored concrete. Nine to fifteen foot-vaulted ceilings provide a free, open ambience. Both the great room and the bedroom have floor to ceiling granite fireplaces, flat screen HD LED LCD TV’s (55' in Great Room and 43' in bedroom) with 900 channel digital cable (all premium channels included), WiFi, DVD player. Tall french doors open out to the private retreat patio where the grounds are professionally landscaped amongst grand, mature pecan trees and offer uncommon shade and greenery. Browse the Library for a good read or a foreign DVD.

A 360 square foot workout room with stair climber, elliptical trainer, treadmill, free weights, Universal Weight Machine yoga mats, hula hoops, jump ropes and color TV leaves no excuse not to embark on that fitness program.


A street scape of palm and olive trees lends a cool, green feeling to a desert city. Within walking distance are a major supermarket, fresh bagels, Starbucks coffee, the best martini in Phoenix, a vegan/vegetarian restaurant, and ethnic restaurants including Vietnamese, Mexican and Peruvian.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I wanted to create a destination setting centrally located in Phoenix that is visually stimulating and stylish with comfortable surroundings. It is decorated with the boutique traveler in mind and includes a high-end bed, linens, and towels. The modern decor features innovative local and imported Asian artwork from the landlord's Asian travels.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This modern yet comfortable retreat is minutes away from the Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center, performance art venues and nightlife. You are only a 5 minute walk to the nationally known Heard Museum, the light rail and fine as well as casual dining.
