Wonderful 2 month stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo last year and again this year, each time staying for 2 months. Larry and Ginny are wonderful landlords and very accessible. We loved that Tempe is so central to everything we wanted to do - spring training games, great restaurants, beautiful walking trails, the airport and on and on. We have already booked our stay with Larry and Ginny for next year.

Great place just a little dirty

  • 3 of 5

The overall property is very spacious and nice. I just think the property could be maintained a little better. A lot of the plates, silverware and crockpot were dirty. There was one bedroom where the closet door didn't close and the drawers in the chest of drawers did not pull out and when they did, we couldn't get them closed. Some of the expiration dates on some of the spices were very old. There was no kitchen sink plug to hold the water to wash dishes so we used a red solo cup--it worked well. We enjoyed sitting outside, however, we had to wipe the table multiple times to get the layer of dirt off it. If you are able to overlook some of the dirtiness, the property is very nice and in a good neighborhood. Overall, we did enjoy our stay.

A Jewel in Tempe

  • 5 of 5

The welcoming basket was only the start of a wonderful week in Tempe, due in part to this lovely spot to call "home". This home is conveniently located to the airport and local spots of interest, has a comfortable living area, and well-stocked kitchen. We especially enjoyed the patio for breakfast and evening meals. In another time of year, the pool would have been a nice draw (a bit cool in November). We felt right at home and would definitely return if we're in the area again.

Awesome as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short visit to this vacation rental, only wish we could have stayed for the winter! It was very much as the excellent pictures showed. Beautifully decorated, roomy for the 8 of us, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms, conveniently located and in a quiet safe neighborhood.

My husband grew up in the neighborhood area, so it brought back many old memories of middle school and high school times.

The owners Larry and Ginnie were quick to answer all questions and the check in/out process was efficient and organized. We appreciated the extra nice touches like soft music playing and a gift basket to welcome us. We also appreciated the owners own photography of

wonderful Arizona places.

If the opportunity ever arises again for us to rent in Tempe with the large group, we would love to come back to this particular rental!

Thanks Larry and Ginnie for allowing us to share your home!!

Like Goldilocks - It was just right!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay. We had three couples and each had their own room. The neighborhood is centrally located yet quiet providing a nice place for our morning walks with mature trees all over. The owner had a binder of local restaurants and services we found helpful. The courtyard was perfect for daily breakfast, happy hour and dinner. We especially liked the table for 8 and lighted canopy in the courtyard.The well outfitted kitchen was a treat to cook in. We also enjoyed the pool. We would be happy to recommend this rental to anyone. Like we said it was just right.
