Mitchell Park West House Rental Photos and Description

3-bdrm, 2-bath. Sleeps 6. Three houses on same block could sleep total of 18.

This newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 1 3/4 bath home is located within walking distance of Arizona State University and downtown Tempe. City bus routes and a new light rail system make this location very desirable. Close to Sun Devil Stadium, Grady Gammage Auditorium and the nightlife of this college town, this home is ideally located for those who want to vacation in a quiet neighborhood close to where the action is.

Executive as well as designer golf courses are nearby. A short drive will take you to the spring training facilities for the Angels, Athletics or Cubs. The Phoenix Zoo is less than five miles away.

The living room and all bedrooms are equipped with cable television. The beautifully landscaped backyard features a covered patio and gas grill. The interior of the house is newly furnished with contemporary furniture.

Should you need more room than is afforded by this property, we own two other properties on the block -- VRB0 #395773 and, our newest, VRBO #933406.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

About Shirley Filliater

This was Shirley's first house, which she bought in 1985. When we got together and Pete's son moved in with us, we moved to a larger home two miles away. But, we love the university area. There is always something to do close by -- a concert, a festival, a sporting event, or just taking a walk. We will probably move back to our ASU house in the next few years so, when we recently remodeled it, we decorated it with care. We hope you enjoy! - Shirley and Pete

Why Shirley Filliater chose Tempe

It is fun to live in this neighborhood. It is quiet but close to a lot of activity. ASU students as well as home-owners live throughout, making the neighborhood upbeat and lively. Pete and Shirley have lived in the area since 1985.

What makes this house unique

The house is conveniently located to ASU and the numerous activities that occur there. You can always find something to do within minutes. A dog park is located at the end of the street so it is entertaining to just sit in the front yard, watching the neighbors walking to the park each night.

Perfect little house in Tempe

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't have suited our needs any better. I was in Tempe with my sister, friend and 18 month old nephew who enjoyed the park at the end of the street and the nice backyard. The house is clean, nicely decorated and was the perfect size for us. We got our work done and had time to hang out and relax as well. The central location was key for our work needs. We'll be back. Thanks Shirley and Pete - you are great hosts! Kris , Santa Barbara

Very clean and well kept home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first try at a vacation rental home and I must say we were all impressed with this home. Shirley and Pete have thought to include all the necessities and then some. Our daughter's graduation was made that much more enjoyable because of our living arrangement. We hope to be back in 2 years for our son ASU graduation.

We loved our stay. Very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We did a brothers trip and decided to head to Tempe. Shirley and her husband did a great job making the house comfortable and accomidating . There are also some great bars and restaurants nearby. Just get one of the bikes provided and ride.

The backyard is also a nice place to hang out and drink some coffee in the morning, which they supplied.

Thanks for the stay!!

Just like home!

Another wonderful stay at this great little house. We were comfortable in every way and Pete and Shirley are very much available for their guests. The back yard is perfect for our dogs. We like the neighborhood and appreciate the nearby park. We had smiles on our faces the whole winter.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Tempe for USC vs ASU football and house was perfect location for a great time. Shirley and Pete have an awesome property, very accommodating for five adults and two dogs (love the backyard). Clean, spacious and well stocked in a nice neighborhood. Walked to Downtown/ASU for great eats and yummy libations 😀. Also close to airport and freeway for easy traveling. We will definitely book again, and maybe even try their other rental with pool just two houses away. Fight On!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned a Thanksgiving in Tempe, to be with our son. Our daughter was able to fly in from Houston, to join us. We were very impressed when we arrived at the home. Shirley and Pete have done a tremendous job remodeling, and decorating their cottage. The large backyard was perfect for our Golden Retriever. I hosted the Thanksgiving dinner, and the house handled it very well. Though it wasn't a large gathering, family commented on how comfortable it was. The location worked well, since it has easy access to freeways, parks, shopping and activities. The neighborhood was clean and quiet. When in Tempe, we will always make sure to select this place again.
