Terrific vacation spot in convenient location
My family (2 parents, 2 kids) are traveling around the country for a year and needed a place to meet up with grandparents. This was the perfect spot, near grocery, parks, hiking (mountains with trails just a few blocks away), and not far from the airport, Tempe and ASU, and downtown Phoenix. The house is close to others like it on the street, but feels like a little oasis with its garden and pool (too cold for us in Jan but we did try out the hot tub). The house inside is lovely with comfy furnishings (although only 4 dining chairs so you might need an extra if you have 4+), 2 great baths with a linen closet stocked with fluffy towels, and a full kitchen with everything you need to cook. Bedrooms (3) are perfect for 2 couples and 2 kids. Only thing I'd suggest to the owner, Michelle, who was great and graciously checked on us when we tried to make a fire but couldn't figure out the flue, is to add a brighter light or another lamp by the beds (too dim to read at night). All in all, a perfect place that we would highly recommend if you're ever near Tempe/Phoenix! A few pics on our blog post here: bigtrip1516.com, if you want to see how relaxed and happy we were here, on what was a mostly rainy week. Thank you!
