About Wayne Shippy

We are a semi-retired couple. Wayne drives a school bus and Nancy is Systems Manager at our church nearby.

Wayne Shippy purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Wayne Shippy chose Tempe

We bought our home in 1988 because of the location and the quiet neighborhood. Churches, shopping & restaurants are nearby. In 2010 we remodeled our home to include this unique apartment with private entrance.

What makes this apartment unique

Private, efficiently organized space, quiet, cute, super clean & includes almost anything a traveler might need. Safe neighborhood & close to public transportation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a long drive we arrived about 1 am and we were instantly delighted by what we found. SO MANY thoughtful touches, from the motion sensor lights, to the fan being on, the snacks, the adorable furnishing, and that was just the beginning. Each day we discovered other things that delighted us. During the day, we worked on my son's guest house that he will be staying at while he attends ASU. But at night, we had the pleasure of "coming home" to this beautiful place. Thank you so much for everything!

Young couple

My fiancé and I enjoyed our stay. We felt at home as we had everything available to us upon arrival - from kitchen and bathroom items to a comfortable and cozy house. I would recommend this to everyone.

Perfect Little Unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit has been designed with efficiency in mind. Everything you need is here, all in a well designed very compact space. It is in a quiet cul de sac neighborhood with a separate entrance and was spotless. The towels were large and fluffy , the shower nicely tiled, the bed comfortable with nice bedding. The small kitchen was all we needed. Everything was well thought out for what guests might need- coffee, snacks, soap, shampoo, magazines, books. The fact that several guests return every year, renting it for more than a month speaks for itself. It was perfect for two. And a great value. We enjoyed our stay.

Just the right size.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked our stay at the Shippey Chalet. It had all the housekeeping necessities, plus a few extras -- books, movies, snacks -- even fresh oranges off the tree. Groceries and transportation were handy, and the owner was always handy for assistance. Our relatives that visited were so impressed that they are going to recommend it to their other out-of-town guests -- unless we are using it again!

Perfect location for short stay in Tempe

  • 5 of 5

We were more than pleased with our accommodation. It was accurately portrayed in the listing. The property is quiet and private with access to an outside area for soaking up a bit of the sun. We appreciated very much the cleanliness of the unit and enjoyed having everything from shampoo to tissues provided. We did not have to shop for anything. The owners are super friendly and helpful and always available. We highly recommend this property. We loved to bike down to the university area, tempe lake, climb Haydon Mtn. - and found many stores and coffee shops also in walking distance.

Perfect little gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

Found this little gem of a place when just looking for a short 3 night stay for the two of us. It was perfect, central and quiet. Read the amazing reviews and we were sold. Easy to book and easy to find. Thank you Wayne and Nancy who were very pleasant hosts.

Great little gem in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Shippy Challet was great. We were coming from out of town and stayed there for 2.5 months while looking for a place to live permanently. The place comes with everything you need to live, is in a quiet, nice neighborhood, in the middle of Tempe. It is close to ASU - 5 min walk to bus stop, then 10-15 min ride. If you have a car, the Challet is a block away from the freeway and you can be at the PHX airport within 15 mins.

Specifics:

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location? Yes it was.

Did the listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities? Yup.

Was the property clean and well-maintained? Yes, very clean and well maintained.

Was the owner helpful in answering your questions or concerns? Yes, very helpful. Any concerns we had were quickly addressed.

Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? Definitely.

What nearby activities, attractions and restaurants would you recommend? There is a nice bar called Spokes on Southern about a block away, that has nice outdoor seating with a view of a pond/fountain with ducks and turtles. Also, Tempe Beach Park is a short drive up north along the river. If you're in the mood for mexican food, check out Someburros on Baseline, and for breakfast U.S. Egg in the same plaza too.
