The cottage is charming. The owners are delightful, welcoming and accomadating. Jill shared a lot of information about the community. The neighborhood felt very safe and we were comfortable walking to the store and a few restaurants. Nice to stay in area with green grass and lovely gardens vs. black topped parking lots.

Comfortable and charming

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation is lovely, everything as described and even better. The cottage is roomy and comfortable, and provides all the amenities of a condo, plus a large dose of charm. The garden area is delightful, with several places to sit in sun or shade and enjoy the surroundings. Arcadia is a lovely, peaceful neighborhood of attractive, well-maintained homes, beautifully landscaped. The location is convenient to the airport, to downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale and to points east. Arcadia itself has ample shopping and dining venues. My husband and I did not rent a car, which presented a small challenge, but we were able to get around with a combination of walking, public transit, and Uber. We used Uber frequently and found it to be very convenient and cost-effective. For longer day trips, we use van tours.

The hosts, Jill and Hal, are friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Delightful setting

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place. The cottage was so cute and comfortable, and the grounds were beautiful, peaceful and interesting with the little goats and chickens. In addition, the location is in the heart of Phoenix, close and convenient to everything the city has to offer. We will be staying there again!
