Nothing better than the Shippy chalet.

  • 5 of 5

Whether it's for a short vacation or an extended stay you can't find anything better than the Shippy Chalet. This cozy little apartment is connected to the back of a private residence in a quiet, peaceful, and safe location in Tempe. It is just a short walk to a major grocery store, a Starbucks, and other shopping, and just a short drive to many restaurants and attractions that a large university town provides. The owners (Wayne and Nancy) have thought of everything-- pots, pans ,all kitchen utensils you could possibly need, and towels, linen, soaps, etc. for the bath and bedroom. You even have your own private laundromat facilities. When you arrive you can expect to find fruit, a variety of snack bars, and food condiments waiting on you. My wife and I have stayed there for 5 consecutive years and we have never even considered looking elsewhere. For us it is our home in Arizona. Thanks, Wayne and Nancy, for your hospitality and all you do to make your apartment the ideal place to stay in metro Phoenix.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Shippy Chalet for two beautiful weeks. The apartment was clean, well furnished, and the personal detail to making the apartment inviting was truly appreciated. Wayne provided snacks, water, coffee. and other edibles prior to our arrival. His hospitality far exceeded our expectations! We encourage others to stay at the Shippy Chalet when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to another visit and know where we will stay! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Denise and Windsor

awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

The host was very respectful and friendly, the area is quite and all the amenities almost complete. As if you could just check-in without bringing anything else except for some clothing. The rest are provided by the owners.

Thank You.

About Wayne Shippy

We are a semi-retired couple. Wayne drives for UBER and Nancy is Systems Manager at our church nearby.

Wayne Shippy purchased this studio in 2010

Why Wayne Shippy chose Rural-Geneva

We bought our home in 1988 because of the location and the quiet neighborhood. Churches, shopping & restaurants are nearby. In 2010 we remodeled our home to include this unique apartment with private entrance.

Covered parking in our 10 steps from your door.

What makes this studio unique

Private, efficiently organized space, quiet, cute, super clean & includes almost anything a traveler might need. Safe neighborhood & close to public transportation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a long drive we arrived about 1 am and we were instantly delighted by what we found. SO MANY thoughtful touches, from the motion sensor lights, to the fan being on, the snacks, the adorable furnishing, and that was just the beginning. Each day we discovered other things that delighted us. During the day, we worked on my son's guest house that he will be staying at while he attends ASU. But at night, we had the pleasure of "coming home" to this beautiful place. Thank you so much for everything!
