About Sarah Finnerty

My husband, our children and I have lived in the Phoenix area for several years. I grew up and started my own family in a small Midwest farm town in Illinois. I have always had a great appreciation for the warmth of the desert climate, the beautiful mountains, lakes, sunsets and year round golfing this area provides, not to mention, the vast entertainment choices, incredible shopping and high-energy atmosphere available in the city. We entertain our out-of-state family & friends often in our home and enjoy exploring Arizona with them. We want you to love Arizona as much as we do!

Sarah Finnerty purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sarah Finnerty chose Greater Phoenix Area

This is a great central location to access all the wonderful activities the Phoenix area has to offer. Our condo is near The Mill Avenue District, Tempe Town Lake and ASU events. Great dining, beautiful golf courses and multiple forms of public transportation are easily accessible all around you.

What makes this condo unique

We are a half mile from the ASU campus! My husband worked at ASU for over 13 years. We also have a daughter who is a junior at ASU - Tempe campus. We know a lot about the current events happening on and around campus. We bought this condo with the idea that it would be an awesome location, and a safe and very comfortable living space for our own children in the future. Traveling over the years as a family of six, we put a lot of thought into the furnishings and little extras here so that everyone has an affordable and relaxing stay.

Comfortable home, quiet place to find rest and relaxation after a day at ASU Karsten Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sarah for your warm hospitality at the "Lemon Street Retreat". My son and I enjoyed our stay; I appreciate your attention to details far above what a hotel can offer. We travel often for my son's golf tournaments and he needs a comfortable place to rest and unwind during long days. ASU Karsten Golf Course is just minutes away. Rather than eat out every morning, having a kitchen allowed me to cook homemade breakfast before early tee times. Thank you for your prompt and great service too!

Great Location, Condo is Better than Shown, Excellent Owner, Excellent Ammenities

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice, clean, modern home away from home while in the Phoenix Area, especially for ASU parental stays, close to Sky Harbor airport (but not under the flight path) with access to the greater Phoenix, Tempe and surrounding areas including - Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Tucson, Mogollon Rim, Mexico, Sedona, Sonoran Desert - even a jaunt to Southern California, YOU WOULD BE MISSING-OUT IF YOU DO NOT TO consider this great place to stay in a great location, with an excellent, helpful owner - only if you want/need it of course. Issue free, hassle free, a great VRBO/Home-Away condo rental experience and would definitely stay here again. If you are traveling with Family (up to 4 or even 6 if smaller) this is a 'must consider' property. The property and support from the owner exceeded any expectations I had using VRBO for the 1st time. Two Story Condo with Two full bedrooms/baths, 1 in bathroom in the Master, covered parking, this has privacy for adults while not being too far (or close) to the kids / or other couple. Updated/Modern appliances throughout and close access to ASU office areas if needed. A really nice, clean, condo right in Tempe close to everything!

Beautiful condo. Private balcony, great location, has everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

This condo is neat, clean, has everything you need and a private balcony. It is on the blue bus route (which is free) that takes you to many

places. The condo is within walking distance of some very nice restaurants, a brewery, and a grocery store. If we come to Tempe again we

would enjoy staying at Sarah's condo again.

Incredible hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

Having used VRBO properties a number of times, I can say unequivocally that Sarah has the best organized setup that I've experienced. She goes the extra mile for her guests (and you feel like a guest at her property). She has an extensive amount of local information compiled in a binder and even provides local supermarket discount cards. There are a lot of staples in the condo, so it's a good idea to take an inventory prior to grocery shopping.

When Sarah discovered that we were in Tempe to spend Christmas with our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, she decorated the condo, to include a small lighted tree. Our GD was thrilled every time she came to visit.

The location works well for shopping, restaurants and local attractions. Light rail and bus stops are very close and Lyft and Über were never more than 5 minutes away.

If we are able to make this trip again, this is our first choice.

The condo was spotless and the furniture was very comfortable.

Perfect IMAN AZ Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a fantastic home base for first trip to AZ for IMAN AZ.

Location was ideal for getting to all of the action at Tempe Beach either via Transit

or quickly via car. The amenities within the condo were great. Beds were fantastic! Made pre-race sleeping ideal.

Condo was clean, comfortable and perfect for 4 adults. The owner, Sarah was amazing to work with.

Sarah thought of all of the details and ensured our stay was awesome! Would highly recommend the condo to anyone visiting the Tempe area.
