Tranquil Oasis in Historic District of Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at this home due to its proximity to family in North Phoenix. We have stayed in several VRBO's in various areas of Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale, and will have to say that this is now one of our favorites. Clean, comfortable, good location - you can say that about many VRBO's, but the owners here have thought of every single small detail to ensure that your stay is perfect.

It was around 102 - 108 when we were there so we did not get a chance to enjoy the beautiful garden, hottub and outdoor patio, but it looked very inviting! We were cool and comfortable in the home. The upstairs bedroom has a double bed but as only one was sleeping in that bed, that was no issue. The kitchen is fully equipped. We cooked our own meals and there was never any utensil that we needed that wasn't available. Water pressure for showers was beautiful! Beds were comfortable. Decor was impeccable. TV viewing was great. Can't imagine when you might have a use for a gas fireplace, but if you are there in December or January, what a nice feature! Quiet neighborhood.

Looking forward to staying here again, and so will you!

Charming house complete with everything you need for a wonderful get away.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days and 3 nights in Phoenix over New Years and had a fantastic time. The house was perfect for 4 adults to hang out and cook, relax, watch movies and just chill. The owner Randy was great to deal with and we will definitely stay here again in the future!

Great Downtown Excape

  • 5 of 5

So enjoyed our Sister weekend here. The house was clean, well appointed, and quiet. We loved the historic feel of the house and the area. Randy went out of his way to take care of our every need and was very quick to answer our questions. Wish our stay could have been longer. Beautiful, restful, relaxing yard as well to enjoy the great weather. Thanks Randy.

There were four of us and we were able to sleep very comfortably. The place was easy to find and in a nice neighborhood. Well decorated and we certainly enjoyed the grill and hot tub!

Cozy and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Randy's home is lovingly cared for, immaculately clean and very well appointed. It lacks nothing to make your stay in Phoenix relaxing and restful. The beds are very comfortable, the outdoor spaces a wonderful place to spend the morning or evening and a soak in the hot tub a great way to unwind. The location is very convenient to many restaurants and museums. Randy is a gracious host who thoughtfully provides everything you need to enjoy your stay. I highly recommend this home.

All the Modern Touches while Maintaining the Historic Feel

  • 5 of 5

Home was in the historic section of downtown. Randy turned this home into a place you were not wanting to depart from. Combining the best of the modern convienences with lots of antique furnishings and designer touches that helped retain the historic feel. Exterior landscaping was nicely done along with added touches to the front porch that invited you to sit and enjoy the day. Every conceivable item for helping to prepare a gourmet meal was available in the kitchen and a new refrigerator/freezer that made me jealous. Skylight added a nice touch of daylight when preparing breakfast and lunch. Main floor bedroom was large and the bed very comfortable with wraparound windows. Historic feel was again evident in getting used to lowering your head if you were tall when climbing the stairs to the second floor master bedroom. This bedroom again provided wraparound windows with a view of the downtown highrises and a nicely done glassed in shower. Ample closet place throughout the home. Whether on business or pleasure, this home being minutes from downtown and in a nice quiet neighborhood lined with palms makes it a perfect location for anyone visiting Phoenix. Wonderful.
