About Duane Webb

We are retired educators who enjoy staying in comfortable and quaint homes when we vacation. We live in Phoenix (my wife is a native) and wouldn't move anywhere else. We went to school here, our children and relatives all live here too. We have made this property a place we would stay in if we were visiting Phoenix.

If you're coming to Phoenix and want some ideas on where to go and what to do, we're probably able to help you make your stay a memorable one.

Duane Webb purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Duane Webb chose Phoenix

Having grown up in Phoenix we've seen the metro area change tremendously over the years. In turn, areas that have remained ideal are the historic downtown residences. As we shopped for homes we had specific things in mind and this home hit the mark consistently.

What makes this bungalow unique

Location, location, location is something you hear often when talking about where to go to vacation or have an extended break. We hit the jackpot here. With easy access to everywhere in the Phoenix metropolitan area this home offers a solid and comfortable location from which to branch out and explore Phoenix or Arizona in general.

This was a great little getaway! I had two teenagers with me and they absolutely loved this is nearby to everything (museums, theaters, university, etc...) You can take an Uber if you don't have a car and there's also public transit right nearby. I would go again in a heartbeat! Oh...and Duane was wonderful to work with...such a kind gentleman!

A great stay in central Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for an eight day Thanksgiving visit to my sister-on-law, who lives next door to the Heard Museum. Duane was great to communicate with before we arrived. The listing and pictures, if anything, don't really convey how nice a place this is. The rooms are large, pleasant and well appointed. The kitchen is completely equipped. The outdoor space was very nice. We loved the neighborhood and being able to walk to the restaurants on Central Avenue.

We were extremely pleased with every aspect of our stay. I expect we will stay here the next time we have an extended stay in Phoenix.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank you for your kind words and choosing to stay at our property. We think the location is great for those who want to have a comfortable base for exploring our state and city. We have tried to provide the things we believe most travelers would want when they come for a visit. Often I ask guests what more could we offer to make your stay more enjoyable. Our guests know best what to furnish in order to make the stay more pleasant. It is a pleasure to have you celebrate a Thanksgiving gathering at our home and hope that you have fond memories of your time with one another..

Beautiful Home in an Historic Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Ashland House is the perfect spot in Phoenix for travelers who want to feel welcomed. The home is beautiful, clean, well stocked, and inviting. You can gather around in the great room or enjoy the amenities of the lovely back yard. It is a quick walk away from the light rail making it right in the middle of everything while being away. The neighborhood and owner are friendly and inviting and quickly make you feel like you belong. Ashland House will be on our lodging list the next time we visit Phoenix.

We do hope you keep us in mind should your travels bring you back to Phoenix.

Wonderful Home, Very Peaceful

Loved this home. Very quiet but just a short drive or lightrail ride to down town. Comfortable, clean. We are very glad we picked this property. Owners were very helpful and kind. Easy to work with for payment and check in/out. I will be using this property again!

Wonderful Home, Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was the perfect location for downtown! Sitting in the backyard was very peaceful but we were only minutes from the convention center and other downtown attractions. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners have done a wonderful job. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: We want to thank you for choosing to stay at our home. We feel the location is one of the strong points with this house. Being close to the downtown area helps so many of our guests who come for business or pleasure. Our neighborhood is also a welcome relief from the hustle of daily life, affording a surprisingly quiet location in the midst of the city. We're glad you were able to make use of the backyard. We want it to be a sanctuary for guests who stay at our home. Additionally it sounds like the proximity to the convention center suited you well. As we indicate in information left for guests, there are plenty of things nearby to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We do hope to see you again and thank you for letting others know that is was a good place to stay when in Phoenix.

Our home is in a prime location and part of historic downtown Phoenix. The Ashland House originally was a bunk house for the Heard family ranch hands, built in the 1920's. We think you’ll experience the same peace, relaxation and enjoyment that we do when you come to stay!

There’s so much to experience in downtown Phoenix within just a few miles of our home. Take a morning walk to a local coffee shop or an early afternoon walk for lunch or happy hour at Humble Pie, Durants, The Main Ingredient, Switch, Sochu House or any number of other restaurants – all less than one-half mile away. Get on the light rail and go for an adventure or straight to the ballgame.

This renovated, 1920's Tudor-style home, located in the Ashland Historic District is a unique property in the Valley. This is definitely no Arizona “cookie cutter” home or condo – vacationing in this home offers what is great about the old west – beautiful light, city views, quiet cool spaces, and nearby places for entertainment!

This residence has been renovated but retains its historic feel, featuring two bedrooms and two full bathrooms along with a loft. This home is not just a place to rest your head while visiting Arizona, it is a destination in itself!

Quality linens, lots of pillows, memory foam mattresses, fluffy duvets, TV's in each bedroom, all the amenities of home will make your stay truly unforgettable. A kitchen with Corian counters, updated appliances, and ample kitchenware make cooking in this kitchen better than being at home. The only decision you’ll need to make is whether to eat in or at one of the numerous establishments nearby. One of the most popular places in the house isn't in the house at all - it's in the fabulous covered areas in the landscaped backyard. There is a 4 person jacuzzi in the backyard to help make the stay even more pleasurable.

And while the house will comfort you – the location might just blow you away! The Ashland Historic District is located at the heart and soul of the entire Valley. Located within 2 miles from the I-10, 51, and 202 freeways, and just two miles north of the original downtown Phoenix, this house will allow everyone easy and quick access to everything there is to do in the Valley. Located within 10 minutes from the downtown Convention Center, Chase Field, US Airways Center, the Encanto Golf Course and Phoenix Country Club, the Phoenix Art Museum, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, the Heard Museum, and the Arizona Fair Grounds– this neighborhood is also renowned for its great locally owned bistros and cafes and its close proximity to a lively art and theater scene. A short 15 minute drive gets you to Sky Harbor Airport, world-class shopping, spas, and golf at the famous Arizona Biltmore, the Desert Botanical Gardens, the Phoenix Zoo, ASU and Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe and Tempe Town Lake, and the beautiful Phoenix Mountain Preserve.

Many restaurants in downtown Phoenix are within a few miles. We’ll provide a guide at the home so you’ll know where to head. We’re centrally located and a great place to stay if you are coming for the spring training games – or if you want to launch off to explore Sedona, the Grand Canyon, or one of the many other natural wonders, National Parks and National Monuments Arizona has to offer (did you know Arizona has more National Monuments than any other U.S. State?)

Many people who’ve moved to Phoenix call it paradise, and we think they are right. Come and experience our Phoenix – and our home! We look forward to having you as our guests.
