Central Phoenix Medlock Historic District Huge Private Villas
average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

We chose this property because it was listed as a bed and breakfast and pet friendly

  • 3 of 5

This property is 3 buildings around a central yard, like a small apartment complex. We informed the owners of our 2 dogs when reserving, easily done via phone. Upon arrival they told us we would need to keep our dogs on leash at all times so as not to disturb the outside "working cat" that lives on property. We were told this multiple times both verbally and via text message after the owners left on day 2 of our 4 day stay for their own vacation. They left a friend’s mother onsite to manage it while they were gone. We were also informed upon arrival that the VRBO rate does not include breakfast.

The pictures show multiple units. We stayed in the Arizona Suite w 2 large bedrms and 1 bath & beautiful polished concrete floors. There’s space for a crib or pack n play in each room. Each bedroom had a desk and chair & large closet. The bed and couch we used were comfortable, though we were also told to keep our dogs off the furniture. We were able to use the internet easily, but didn’t see the pool table, video library or cd/stereo as listed. There were fans in the bedrooms and living room which was nice, as the AC controls were behind a locked box. The remote control for the tv in the living room would only turn the tv on and off, so we had to manually use the dvd player. There were extra sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and a cot available in the unit. The kitchen was stocked with basic supplies, though we had to clean most dishes before using them. The microwave was on top of the fridge. The pool was clean for one day during our stay. After the owners left for their vacation, a tenant, who we were told lives in the unit next to us, played his music loud enough we could hear it over our own tv. He also smoked outside his unit for hours, which drifted into the central yard, though the property is listed as non-smoking only.

The property is centrally located as described. We particularly enjoyed the nearby Sun Up Brewhouse which offers multiple excellent homemade beers and root beer in growlers. Walking back for a growler refill was a nice outing for the dogs. Dutch Brothers Coffee was also within walking distance. The employees were very friendly and had excellent coffee. The quiet neighborhood is a mix of private homes, apartments and other rental units like this one. It was convenient to several malls and Nordstrom’s Last Chance, which the owner told us about when we arrived. The owner also let us know the onsite vending machine had several local beers.

About Russ and Erin

Welcome! Over the years, my wife and I have lived in five countries around the world and now dedicate ourselves to our posada style property in Phoenix. My wife is an American who has traveled the world, resided in Mexico and Spain and speaks fluent Castillian. As for me, I was born in Russia in the former Soviet Republic of Moldova, about a 2 hour drive from Romania. My hometown looks a lot like the Transylvania seen in old American movies. I have traveled extensively through most of eastern Europe and as far east as Siberia. I have experienced meeting many interesting people in my travels and I wish same for you. You need to come and experience our superior service and worldly charm. Come visit Historic Central Phoenix and spend some time with us. Warmest regards from our family to yours.

Russ and Erin purchased this house in 2007

Why Russ and Erin chose Alhambra

The reasons this property is ultimate vacation destination are many. Refreshing diving pool out your front door, comfortable laundry service onsite, vending machine and lush gardens welcome you. Palm tree lined avenue takes you within a few minutes walk to over 10 restaurants, bars, boutiques, studios and the light rail. Getting to tourists destinations in AZ like Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon makes this location a great starting point for your Arizona vacation.

We have owned this property ten years and we occupy one of the villas all year long. Join us at our half acre resort get away and enjoy our fruit trees, hammocks, Jacuzzi, diving pool, lush landscaping all under the warm AZ sun.

What makes this house unique

We are located one block north of Camelback and between Central and 3rd Ave. Centrally located on a quiet residential street yet with great entertainment and attractions one block away. 'This is much better than a hotel!' 'I feel like I'm at home.'
