I moved to Arizona 30 years ago. I am a CPA with my own office in Phoenix. I have owned rental properties here for ten years and take pride in making sure that every tenant has a positive experience renting from me. I am truly happy to hear a tenant say they love the place. My home is in downtown Phoenix but i really enjoy getting out hiking on the trails on the weekend or biking on the beautiful greenbelt.
Joseph Hecht purchased this condo in 2002
This property is so close to everything Tempe has to offer, i looked at it and said "i could live here" so why not rent it out? The grounds are well maintained, and my neighbors have been living here for years.
Great location, close to freeway, airport
Quiet complex - didn't hear neighbors at all
Two pool options (however they are not heated)
Close to airport (lots of plane noise)
Very outdated condo, not many updates
Very little in the condo re: existing supplies (we had to buy trash bags, paper towels, nothing was there).
Cleaning ladies knocked on the door at 9:30am on the day we left, 1.5 hrs before we were supposed to check-out.
Had to follow up with the host to get the lock box combination.
I think next time we'll spend the extra money and upgrade a bit next time we stay.
We stayed for 6 weeks from end of January to beginning of March as Snowbirds. Photos and other information listed on the website were all accurate to the condo. Everything was as promised.
We had our dog and the dog park was only a few blocks away. It was an easy walk to Papago Park with it's trails, playground, etc., and I also walked daily to the Tempe Town Lake area. Condo complex was well lit, and I always felt safe walking with the dog or alone. My husband like the covered parking area. Didn't use any of the 3 swimming pools since I wasn't sure if they were being maintained during the winter and they're not heated, but I did sit there to get the sun or read. The condo was older, but clean and had several new items like the sofa, washer/dryer, water heater, electric tea pot, & coffee pot. Tile and laminated flooring throughout so it was easy to clean. When I asked the owner, Joseph, for new vacuum cleaner filters, he actually brought over a new vacuum cleaner. Also, we had issues with the dishwasher not cleaning right, and he bought and installed a new KitchenAid dishwasher for us. The little courtyard was nice for sitting outside-2 chairs & a table. Beds were very comfortable.
Neighbors (and everyone we met in Tempe) were nice. Students upstairs were quiet; we only heard them walking sometimes or moving chairs; never heard the other neighbors. Definitely lots of students in this complex; we were very close to Arizona State University. Also, lots of other dog owners-good way to meet people. Downtown Tempe was a short drive away with shops, bars, and restaurants. We were also close to the highway and it was easy to get to local attractions. Arizona Historical Museum, Desert Botanical Garden and Phoenix Zoo were all in the Park; very close by. Scottsdale was straight north for our sightseeing there. Tempe Marketplace Mall was a great close by place to see a movie, go shopping or catch the free shuttle for a Cubs game at Sloan Park.
Minor Cons: The faucets were old and dripped (Joseph was going to have a plumber fix them), and the refrigerator was old and quite small but it worked fine (probably big enough for a short visit but we bought groceries and cooked most meals in the condo so it seemed small).
TVs, cable and internet worked well. We would definitely rent this condo again, or recommend it to friends.
We chose this place for its location near family, but it would be good for anyone visiting the Phoenix area. Joseph is a great guy to work with, and I would rent from him again. As others have mentioned, this place could use some updating...a coat of paint, maybe even on the cabinets, would help a lot. Also more towel racks in the master bath. the washer and dryer are brand new and I really liked them ! As previously stated, Joseph is a great person to rent from, and we definitely consider staying here again.
My husband and I stayed here with our dog for 3 nights. We were very pleased with the place. The size was perfect for us and with the additional bedroom and bathroom would have easily worked for another couple.
Furniture is leather and comfortable enough for a rental. TV is decent and worked with our Amazon Fire just fine. Good selection of books, magazines, and other entertainment for lounging available as well.
Good sized kitchen with all necessary appliances. Silverware, dishes, wine glasses, etc ample enough and in good shape. We wish there had been condiments but realize that they would go bad without regular changing out by owner so understandable.
The quality of towels was exceptional, way better than a hotel! There were even small bottles of lotion/bodywash/shampoo. The water pressure and temperature were great, was very pleased and it was easy to wash/rinse my waist length hair. Comes with a blow dryer as well. Ample closet space and nice full length mirrors in master bath.
Master bedroom was big with ample storage and closet space. Bed was not the most comfortable (we do have a tempurpedic at home so I might be biased...) but good enough for a short stay away from home and big enough to for two people. Internet equipment was in this room as well as a desk. Wifi worked great and the desk was nice to be able to sit at. Guest bedroom we didn't sleep in but was very cute and decently sized.
The small gated front yard was great size for our small dog and there was even a dog park a block down the road we walked to every day. Nice kept up property grounds as well. The parking is covered for one spot and across the drive uncovered for the other spot. Both close enough to the apartment and had respectful neighbors (no door dings, yay!)
The property is not a new property and does show its age. However, if you are looking for functional, decent price, decent size, and easy to work with owner then its an excellent choice. If you care about minor cosmetics more than the list above then you should probably look elsewhere and pay double or more. Why you would want to do that is beyond me though.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and very pleased with the large accommodations and pet friendly option. The proximity to many areas was a plus and the area was pretty quiet and easy enough to sleep in or take naps. Thanks for such a great vacation!
Clean, comfortable & excellent location. Updating the furniture & new coat of paint would make this condo perfect.
We had a great time in Tempe, Az. The location of the condo was great for activities, attractions, and restaurants. Amenities in the condo were all you needed and very clean and maintained. The owner was very helpful and we would recommend this property to anybody that are looking for a good time in Tempe.
