About Charles Buss

I have lived in Tempe for more than 30 years. I attended ASU and loved the area so much that I never left. I work occasionally as a real estate agent, renovate homes, lead the neighborhood association and on the Tempe Historic Commission. I enjoy healthy living and the year round warm weather that Tempe offers.

Charles Buss purchased this bungalow in 1987

Cozy convenience

  • 5 of 5

This cozy studio was perfect for our month long visit to Tempe. It’s convenient to all of Tempe, ASU, Scottsdale and the east valley which worked really well for us. It’s also easy to get on the freeways and close to the Tempe Marketplace. Check out Four Peaks Brewery for good food. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Charles, our host, was professional, and on site if any issues come up...none did for us! He has extensive knowledge of the area if you need it. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and we loved the large shower. We would definitely stay here again.

Super handy, clean, excellent place to stay near Tempe. My husband and were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go (or the public transportation is close and great too). Charles is an excellent and helpful host. Definitely thankful for our time here!

Can’t go wrong here.....

  • 5 of 5

Technically 4.5 stars—have to take off half a star because the mattress needs to be replaced ASAP. Otherwise, this is a perfect little place for visiting Tempe/ASU. Plenty of space, lovely modern bathroom, small but adequate kitchen facilities. Had a separate entrance from the regular house, 2 AC units (because it was 96 degrees when we visited). No problem with parking, in a quiet neighborhood. Free shuttle within walking distance, which takes you downtown and to the campus. Light rail also only a few blocks away. Maybe 15 mins from the airport. Would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It was great meeting you. Glad you enjoyed the place and had a good visit. Sorry to hear you didn't care for the mattress. It is an expensive high quality brand mattress that is less than a year old. Others have commented that it is nice. Charles
