About The Owner

We moved to Tempe when Gary was attending Arizona State University in the 1980s and have and stayed here because we enjoy the culture and energy of living in a college town. We raised our family in this neighborhood and are now empty nest. We enjoy traveling and had a positive experience with staying in a vacation rental apartment that we booked through VRBO and decided to try it ourselves when one of our rental units became vacant.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1995

Why The Owner chose Arizona

We bought this apartment in Tempe because it is in our neighborhood, making it convenient to manage. Being near by and having lived in Tempe for more than 20 years we are a phone call away to help guests with anything they may need. We can offer restaurant suggestions, route information or an arranged trip to the airport.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is the best! There is always something to do and easy to get there. Whether it’s the Fiesta Bowl Block Party, ASU graduation, a festival, hiking, sport events or shopping and dining, it’s all close by. Being so close Mass Transit there is no need to battle the Phoenix traffic.

Close to many attractions like the Phoenix Zoo, Desert Botanical Garden, ASU Art Museum and Tempe Town Lake.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great comfortable clean place to stay. Had everything we needed and more. Hospitality and customer service were great. I would stay here again next time we visit Tempe. Lots of great hiking in the area; we attempted Camelback Mountain, which is NOT for the faint of heart and we also climbed "A Mountain" which was a lot less intense. We're health nuts so we liked the variety of healthy local restaurants, Sprouts grocery store, all the smoothie shops, Flower Child and Pita Jungle, just to name a few. We also went to Olive and Vine in Phoenix which was good as well. If you're looking for relaxation, Arizona School of Massage Therapy has students that give massages at a deep discount. It was overall a great trip. Highly recommend this rental property.

Great space and excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

Gail's place was exactly what I needed for my summer internship. She was even generous enough to give me a discount on the place! The space is nice, cozy, and has a very homey kind of feel. The location is also great since it is close to the highway, close to campus, and close to anything you would need. Gail was also very easy to work with. Communication was excellent. Her responses were quick and she got things done fast. Whenever we needed anything, she would have it taken care of within 24 hours! Don't hesitate to stay here!

Great location and all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Gary have thought of everything. Our stay with them was great and we highly recommend them to all. The price was much lower than any of the nearby hotels and you don't have to deal with the hotel hassels. The neighborhood was quiet and there was a nice private patio in the back to sit out and enjoy the warmth. The only thing that could have possibly made our stay better was fluffier or extra pillows.
