About the property

Large 2 BR, 2 bath townehome on golf course with beautiful landscape, pool, tub

We think you'll love our townehome. It is a private home with lots of character located on the end of a quiet residential street in central Tempe. It has over 1800 square feet with a large garage and wide driveway with room for 2 cars. It features a private fenced in pool (not heated) and beautifully landscaped yard that borders the Shalimar 9 hole golf course. The house is uniquely decorated in southwest decor.

We have recently added a 6 seat Dimensions I hot tub that has been placed on the patio outside the master bedroom. It's great for relaxing and enjoying a beverage under the stars. The backyard is enclosed for privacy and is landscaped with separate grass lawns, citrus trees, rose and flowering bushes. It attracts a variety of birds and hummingbirds.

Sit out on the furnished patio and enjoy coffee and listen to the birds in the morning, or grill steaks and drinks in the evening while watching the sunset and enjoying the golf course views.

The house features two unique large living rooms that are separated with stone pillars, and is well furnished with rich leather furniture, a down chaise and a 60' Sony HD tv, and blue ray with the Direct TV extra package for watching your favorite game or movie. The kitchen is well stocked and equipped and the house has internet and wi-fi.

The master bedroom opens out to the backyard and to the hot tub next to the rose and flower garden. It features 2 twin beds with Simmons Beautyrest Kirkwood euro pillow top plush mattresses, and a 40' tv. The 2 beds are pushed together and converted into a king size bed with the connector. They can be separated into single beds if desired. The master bathroom was recently remodeled.

The second bedroom features knotty pine built in woodwork with southwest decor, and a queen size murphy bed and large attached bathroom. The bathroom was recently remodeled with new cabinet, counter top, mirrors, lights and twin sinks. Both bathrooms feature grab bars in the showers and tubs. The bedrooms are separated by a long hallway which provide privacy from each other. Great for separate couples, a group of guys or gals, or a family.

There is a large patio in the back that has access through sliding glass doors, a grill and unheated pool with deck and chairs, and there is also a new washer and dryer. We also have 4 bicycles for your use to enjoy the neighborhood.

The house is a wonderful retreat for enjoying the sunshine and taking it easy, reading a good book, watching tv, or just relaxing on the patio or going for a swim. It is great for entertaining family and friends with the large dining room and patio area and backyard. It has recently been remodeled and newly furnished for us to use as a vacation retreat and as rental property.

There are sleeping accomodations for 6 with an additional self inflated quality queen size mattress that can be put down in one of the large rooms. There is a table in the kitchen that seats 4 and a separate dining room and table that sits 8, and expands for additional seating, plus a cocktail table and chairs in the second living room. There is table service for 12 with additional silverware and wine glasses, coffee maker, blender, mixer, juicer, crock pot, all kitchen utensils, etc. It is a great house for entertaining. There are plenty of towels and extra sheets.

Numerous grocery stores, restaurants, banks and churches within 3 miles, and it is within 10 mins. to additional golf courses, the Talking Stick casino and resort, Papago Park, Phoenix Zoo, Botanical gardens, spring training fields, and is also very close to the Tempe Marketplace, Mill Avenue and ASU, and the Tempe town lake. Its close access to H-101, H-202 and H-60 makes it easy to get to anywhere in the valley without having to deal with stop and go traffic.

It is located in an attractive quiet neighborhood that is great for taking walks and bike rides with little traffic. We enjoy its central location which allows you to get around without spending the day driving, unless you want to.

About Charles Campbell

We are Charles and Jeanne Campbell and we live in Nebraska. Charles' mother lived in the home for the last 25 years before recently moving to Tucson and we were able to obtain the house. We come when we can to enjoy the Arizona sunshine, and enjoy the house as our retreat.

Charles Campbell purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Charles Campbell chose Shalimar

When Mom decided it was time to give up the house and move to Tucson, we jumped at the chance to take it. We've visited whenever we could over the years to recharge our batteries, soak up the sun and enjoy the valley lifestyle . . . golf, shopping, eating, hiking and sightseeing, etc. and loved the central location that the house provides and great access to the major highways.

What makes this townhome unique

Great location, plus the beautiful surroundings inside and out. We enjoy just sitting on the patio enjoying the beautiful views, watching the birds and ducks on the golf course, and hummingbirds in the garden, especially when we can leave behind the frigid midwest winter for a few days.

It is a large home with a lot of character, and is very welcoming and friendly. It works well for a vacation retreat, golf trip or spring training games, or if you are in town for a big game.

Great house, exceptional value, caring owner!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3/26-4/3. The house was everything you need and more. Great interior with all the comforts of home and an even better outdoor area with a pool and jacuzzii. Charley was fantastic to deal with from beginning to end. He called me the day I made the reservation just to let me know he was available if I needed anything along the way. The house is centrally located and a short distance to Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Superstition Mountain....etc. I would give this house and Charley my highest recommendation. I have stayed at several HomeAway homes and this house and Charley are at the very top of the list. Thank you so much Charley, I hope we can come back!!

"Oasis on a golf course"

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at The Shalimar Retreat from January27 till February24/2018! Its a beautiful large home with a lot of midwestern charm. The house and kitchen was well equipped with all the amenities of home. It has a lovely patio we loved sitting out on, watching the golfers and birds. The yard is nicely landscaped with fruit trees and bird feeders so we spent a lot of time watching the local birds and cooking our meals on the BBQ! It had a small pool which we werent able to use as it isnt heated, but we were able to enjoy the hot tub. Its a nice ,quiet location but you need a vehicle to get to the shops and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning!

All the Comforts of Home and a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay over the holidays at the Shalimar house was great. The kitchen was well stocked and the big covered patio with a large BBQ was perfect for enjoying the outdoors and a view of the golf course. The hot tub spa was nice for the cool nights. Access through the garage with the garage door opener was very convenient. The large screen living room TV was great for watching all the football games and the additional TV in the bedroom was great to catch the early morning news.

Access to the 101 and 60 freeways was about a mile away, but with the golf course buffer there was very little noise and Starbucks was just down the road at Southern and McClintock. There are lots of restaurants in the area and the huge Tempe Market Place Mall is about 10 minutes away going North up McClintock Drive where there is also a large movie theater complex.

The owner, Charles, was always available via text if we needed something or had a question. Again, we had a great stay and highly recommend Shalimar for your home-away-from-home stay in the Tempe/Mesa area.

Charlie always makes our stay easy. His home is impeccable! The kitchen and frig are especially clean and well kept. Charlie always makes himself available should we have questions. This is our second opportunity to stay in his home in the last 6 months and our plans are to stay next year as well! Thanks Charlie for such a well done job!
