Great little gem in a great location
The Shippy Challet was great. We were coming from out of town and stayed there for 2.5 months while looking for a place to live permanently. The place comes with everything you need to live, is in a quiet, nice neighborhood, in the middle of Tempe. It is close to ASU - 5 min walk to bus stop, then 10-15 min ride. If you have a car, the Challet is a block away from the freeway and you can be at the PHX airport within 15 mins. Specifics: Was the listing description accurate regarding the location? Yes it was. Did the listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities? Yup. Was the property clean and well-maintained? Yes, very clean and well maintained. Was the owner helpful in answering your questions or concerns? Yes, very helpful. Any concerns we had were quickly addressed. Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? Definitely. What nearby activities, attractions and restaurants would you recommend? There is a nice bar called Spokes on Southern about a block away, that has nice outdoor seating with a view of a pond/fountain with ducks and turtles. Also, Tempe Beach Park is a short drive up north along the river. If you're in the mood for mexican food, check out Someburros on Baseline, and for breakfast U.S. Egg in the same plaza too.
