About the Property

3-bdrm, 2-bath. Sleeps 6. Three houses on same block could sleep total of 18.

This totally remodeled 3-bedroom, 2-bath house is located within walking distance of Arizona State University and downtown Tempe. City bus routes and a light rail system make this location very desirable. Close to Sun Devil Stadium, Grady Gammage Auditorium and the nightlife of this college town, this house is ideally located for those who want to vacation in a quiet neighborhood close to where the action is.

Executive as well as designer golf courses are nearby. A short drive will take you to the spring training facilities for the Angels, Athletics or Cubs. The Phoenix Zoo is less than five miles away.

The living room, bedrooms and the backyard are equipped with cable television. You will find a walk-in shower with a seat and two shower heads in the main bathroom. The second bathroom has a beautifully tiled shower stall. The interior of the house is fully tiled and newly furnished with contemporary furniture.

A swimming pool -- heated during the winter -- accentuates the coverered patio and gas grill in the backyard. Exercise equipment can be found in the laundry room, which is located next to the pool.

Should you need more room than is afforded by this property, we own two other properties on the same block -- VRBO #214978 and VRBO #933406.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Pete is a retired teacher, and Shirley is still teaching mathematics at a Phoenix high school. Shirley's first house, which she bought in 1985, is 3 doors from this property. Pete and Shirley have very much enjoyed renting their other property as a vacation rental since 2009 and, as a result, they purchased this property when it became available in 2011.

Why the Owner Chose Mitchell Park West, Tempe, AZ, USA:
It is fun to live in this neighborhood. It is quiet but close to a lot of activity. ASU students as well as home-owners live throughout, making the neighborhood upbeat and lively. Pete and Shirley have lived in the area since 1985.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located to ASU and the numerous activities that occur there. You can always find something to do within minutes. A dog park is located at the end of the street so it is entertaining to just sit in the front yard, watching the neighbors walking to the park each night.
