Enjoyable and Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Doreen and her fur family made us feel right at home in her cute guest house for five weeks, and we miss it already. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of storage in the large upstairs bedroom. The location was perfect for a short drive to downtown, the Heard museum, restaurants, and quick access to the freeway for easy day trips. We also enjoyed just walking in this historic area of town. I recommend this place for a couple that is looking for a home away from home. Thank you Doreen, Jack and Gracie for being the best hosts anyone could ask for! We hope to be back soon.

Excellent retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, quiet and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable. It was a wonderful place for some much needed r&r. Doreen was a fabulous host and a very nice person. She was very responsive and easy to deal with starting from my first inquiry to checkout. Loved the resident dogs and cats, such a joy to interact with them. I highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.

Perfect, Private Cottage in Phoenix.

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Phoenix to teach classes over a 2 day period and stayed at this little cottage. It seems to be brand, spanking new inside, it's clean, modern and just perfect for 1-2 people who just need a place to come relax at night and wind down from the day. The upstairs bedroom is inviting, the bed is comfortable. I slept very well. Bring your own coffee, as all there was is decaf...but there is a Starbucks only about 3/4 mile away, so no big deal. I would stay here again any time, I highly recommend.

Cozy getaway for two

  • 5 of 5

We loved stayed here for our Spring Training trip this year! The unit had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and we enjoyed how close we were to most of the stadiums and some great restaurants. Would definitely return and recommend!

Comments from Guests:

We greatly enjoyed our stay. Your treehouse is so cute, cozy and accommodation. Thank you for the grapefruit and lemons. We also truly enjoyed your friendly loving pets, Annie and Mischief.

Your recommendations for sightseeing and activities are right on - we enjoyed all of them. L'Auberge in Sedona was a wonderful lunch.

We are happy that our journey brought us here and fortunate to have met you. Our stay here was indeed an experience to remember fondly.

Gene & Donna Nelson, Michaganders (30 day stay)
