Tempe at its Best!
Kate & Dan are wonderful hosts and their home in Tempe's Shalimar neighborhood is perfectly appointed and close to everything, which in our case meant Cubs' Spring Training at Sloan Park, a short 10-minute drive away. The home is very clean and boasts 3 TVs, two of which are flat screens carrying lots of cable channels. (The vintage Quasar also works well via its antenna, which made for some nostalgic viewing.) WiFi is also great, and the kitchen has all the necessaries and then some, like a capacious refrigerator. The backyard patio is a relaxing spot, and the home was spacious enough for three college pals to enjoy for a week w/o getting in each other's way. K&D gave us great tips on places to go, and their recommendations proved to be good ones; their coupon stash was also a thoughtful touch. They also were flexible on reservations and worked with us when we both erroneously miscalendared our initial dates to reach a win-win solution. Highly recommended and THE spot to stay when attending Spring Training games in the Tempe-Mesa area.
Peaceful getaway, ideal location, near Arizona State U, Spring Training
