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 Mitchell Park West

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.

Great Property - Exceptional Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at The Casita. We were down in Tempe for a bonspiel (curling tournament!) at the Coyotes Curling Club, and felt like we were at our home away from home. We really enjoyed relaxing on the back patio between games, playing bocce ball in the yard, and being able to cook a few meals in. Shirley and Pete went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, and were truly exceptional hosts. We will be back!

Cozy Home In An Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this property for a Spring Training/PHX getaway combination and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is in a fantastic location with Mill Ave within walking/biking distance and short Uber rides to the rest of Tempe, central PHX, and Scottsdale. The amount of quality restaurants and bars nearby made the stay unique compared to the other areas we've stayed at in prior visits.

Shirley (property owner) is great. If you have an opportunity to meet her, you should. She's a very friendly, down to Earth, and easy to communicate with property owner who is obviously very diligent in the upkeep of her properties. This property was cozy and comfortable with everything we needed for maximum enjoyment. Whether its a Spring Training trip, or just a southwest getaway, whatever the reason, I highly recommend this property for it's unbeatable location, comfort, and super friendly property owner.

Best Location & Host!!! Must Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Having come to Tempe several times before, this was the best location and mostly the best host we could have chosen for our Ironman race-cation. The owners were the best, overly accommodating and made us feel like family

This property was perfectly lovely!! It was so clean and equipped with absolutely everything we could need. And Shirley went above and beyond by picking me up at the light rail and taking me to the store so I could buy groceries for our dinner. She was fabulous and so was the Casita!!
