About the property

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

This totally remodeled 3-bedroom, 2-bath house is located within walking distance of Arizona State University and downtown Tempe. City bus routes and a light rail system make this location very desirable. Close to Sun Devil Stadium, Grady Gammage Auditorium and the nightlife of this college town, this house 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, bedrooms and the backyard are equipped with cable television. You will find a walk-in shower with a seat and two shower heads in the main bathroom. The second bathroom has a beautifully tiled shower stall. The interior of the house is fully tiled and newly furnished with contemporary furniture.

A swimming pool -- heated during the winter -- accentuates the coverered patio and gas grill in the backyard. Exercise equipment can be found in the laundry room, which is located next to the pool.

Should you need more room than is afforded by this property, we own two other properties on the same block -- VRBO #214978 and VRBO #933406.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

About Shirley Filliater

Pete is a retired teacher, and Shirley is still teaching mathematics at a Phoenix high school. Shirley's first house, which she bought in 1985, is 3 doors from this property. Pete and Shirley have very much enjoyed renting their other property as a vacation rental since 2009 and, as a result, they purchased this property when it became available in 2011.

Shirley Filliater purchased this house in 2011

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.

average rating of 5.0 based on 89 reviews

Lovely pool home with everything you need for a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from California to race in the annual Nun Run in Tempe on the first Saturday in March and attend Giants Spring Training the following day. Shirley greeted us when we arrived and she couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The pool house had everything we needed to make our three-night stay very comfortable. The house is well-stocked with kitchen items, (utensils, pans, dishes, spices, paper products, etc.) towels, toiletries, propane for the gas barbecue, etc., etc. The pool and yard are immaculate and we enjoyed all of your meals outside in the nice backyard. The home is in a nice area and close to many good restaurants, running and walking paths and event venues. We highly recommend the pool house and would stay here again in the future!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year in a row that we have stayed at the pool house and we have booked for the fourth. We can't say enough about the house. Very clean, stocked with everything you can think of. We really do feel that it is our home away from home. Pete and Shirley are the best. They meet you at the house to welcome you and if you need anything during your stay you just need to ask. The pool at 88 degrees is a big bonus. We really love this place as well as Pete and Shirley! Even tho it's a year away we are already looking forward to our next stay. Our two shih tzu dogs also enjoy the time we spend at the pool house.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this house on our annual golf trip to the Phoenix Area. Very quiet neighborhood, relaxing backyard with the pool. Feels like home when you are on vacation. Well maintained property. Already have our week booked for next year.

Thanks again

Perfect for girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

The reviews you read about everything being perfect and above average are all true. Our college roommates met up in Tempe this past weekend and couldn't have been more happy with the house or the owners. Pete and Shirley met up with us right away to show us around, and were available via text or phone for anything we needed. The inside of the house was very clean and very well stocked with all the basics plus more. The backyard and pool were outstanding. The pool was heated to 88 degrees and was unbelievably clean. We were able to swim in January each day. The pool area had a great deal of seating. A nice bar area with 4 high top stools and two TV's, many comfy lounge chairs, a large table for 6 to sit at and also some gliding chairs. We spent most of our time at the house outside in the backyard. When we did venture out, you could either walk to Mill Street or take a $4 Uber ride to get there. The Uber fare to Old Town Scottsdale was only $9. The house was only 10 minutes from the airport. You can tell that Pete and Shirley have put time and money into making this house perfect for people on vacation. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking in this area.

Not just a rental you are their Guests in their Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. We had absolutely everything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would ever need with everything from every kitchen utensil, dishes and appliances, including crock pot and mixer. I have never stayed in a VRBO with so much included. There was saran wrap, parchment paper, zip locks as well as spices, and baking goods. It was also totally stocked with cleaning supplies, laundry room needs, vacuum, tools, umbrellas, cooler, step ladder, and even a fully stocked junk draw just like at home. Even the garage was awesome with the use of bikes, helmets, and locks. They even had a white board with all kinds of brochures on things to do and places to eat as well as a map of the area on the wall. The attention to detail was amazing. It was very clean and comfortable for our week long stay. We loved the showers and TVs in each room. The pool and back yard area was great. Lots of seating for our friends and us to gather and the outside TVs were so cool! Everything about this place and our stay was fantastic. We booked this place because of the pool and Bar-B-Q area and the fact that they had bikes for our use. It was so much more than that! Shirley and Pete were so friendly and had lots of tips on everything from booking a car rental, things to do, and places to go. They even left a cell phone for us to use while we were there. They have two other houses on the same block that are just as great. (they gave us a tour of each) We will definitely be staying again, if they have any vacancies. Which I am afraid may be hard to come by. Great place in the ASU area!!!

Great location, great house, great pool!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the Pool House! Pete & Shirley have done an outstanding job. The home is very clean, has everything you need, and a nice treat to have the bicycles available in the garage. It felt like our own "home" in Arizona! We can't wait to come back next year for a winter break away from the Kansas City snow!
