The space

This beautiful home is in a gated community in South Tempe. The attractive bedroom is in an alcove of the house with its own bathroom. The room has a queen bed and a TV with cable. Share the modern generous kitchen with a Kerug coffee maker for your convenience. The house has a beautiful backyard with many trees and a pebble tech pool with a waterfall. The baby grand piano has its own room and is great for music lovers! Around the corner is a community park with lighted tennis courts, kids play area and large lawn area.
Tempe is a great spot to visit. It is the home of Arizona State University. It has several cultural centers: the ASU Gammage auditorium designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Tempe Center for the Arts located on the water, Tempe Town Lake with its bike and walking paths, and old town Tempe with small coffee shops and quaint stores. There are excellent golf courses, and some of the spring training stadiums are right here in Tempe. Come enjoy the gorgeous winter days in Arizona!

Guest access

Guests have access to the house and the yard with the exception of our bedroom area. The kitchen is a shared kitchen with a Kerug Coffee maker, a spice cabinet, refrigerator space and cabinets for food. Make yourself at home!

Interaction with guests

My interaction with guests varies a lot. It mainly has to do with how busy a guest is. We are a busy, retired couple, but look forward to getting to know our guests if the opportunity arises.

The neighbourhood

My neighborhood is a gated community with a park that has a large green area, children's play equipment and lighted tennis courts. It is a pleasant place for a walk or jog. People are friendly. My house is in a cul-de-sac at the edge of the community, which makes it a very quiet street and neighborhood.

Getting around

Public transportation via bus is 2 blocks from the house. Phoenix is quite spread out, so it is often more convenient to rent a car. There is parking at the house.

Other things to note

If you make reservations for 3 or 4 people, the price jumps up because you are reserving an extra room.

This is a beautiful home in a convenient location to so many sites...and the hostess is warm and accommodating with helpful suggestions that made our stay wonderful. We sure scored a "perfect 10" when we found this Airbnb.

Great home with lovely host. We enjoyed our stay and it's very close to restaurants, shopping and the university. It was a little cold to swim while we were there but the pool is nice and clean and the backyard relaxing. Darcy's dog is probably the nicest most friendly dog we have ever encountered.

This was my first time using Airbnb. But I decided to try it out dispite my reservations. It turned out to be a great experiance. Darcy was a wonderful hostess and far exceeded any of my expectations. I will certainly use Airbnb again in the future.

Darcy User ProfileDarcy is a superhost.

I am a mathematics teacher who has lived in Tempe for 30 years and loves it here! I enjoy swimming, biking, golfing, playing bridge, and playing the piano (I have one at the house to share). I retired but then started teaching at the University and really enjoy being around the college campus. When i bought my house, I realized that it was quite large for one person, but I visualized sharing it with others. I did not know about airbnb at the time, so this has been a great discovery. I share the house with a small dog, Skeeter, who is quiet and friendly.
