We have been Airbnb guests many times during our travels in the US and internationally and had great experiences and we are delighted to open our home to you.
Our 2,500 square foot (232 sq mt), single level home with a private pool is located in a secluded, quiet lake community in Tempe. While the lake is not suitable for swimming, it is perfect for fishing, boating and kayaking. Feel free to use our kayak anytime. It's hard to imagine this oasis in the middle of the desert, especially in Tempe, and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Our home has many rooms including the Piano / Living Room, Social Family Room, Reading/Game room, Dining, Kitchen, Bedrooms and Pool area. You will have full use of our entire home except our private bedroom and home office.
The signal is fast and strong throughout our home, including the pool area.
Your private bedroom and guest bathroom are located in a section of our home that can be completely closed off by closing the french doors that separate your section of our home from the other areas.
This bedroom is 185 sqft (17 m2) and has a queen/double bed with a very comfortable mattress that feels like sleeping on a marshmallow cloud. The bedroom also includes a work desk, closet with hangers, hair dryer, dressing mirror, ceiling fan, reading chair, iron, ironing board, towels/linens and bathroom amenities and night bed light. This room is perfect for 1-2 adults or 1-3 children.
Your bathroom is the guest bathroom for our home. It may be used by our friends or family that stop by and is generally private but may be shared with another Airbnb guest who may reserve the other bedroom. You may request your bathroom to NOT be shared with another Airbnb guest, but may incur an additional fee. It is located between the 2 bedrooms.

Amy loves to travel with her partner, Paul, of 12+ years. When she is not working at Arizona State University, she teaches piano and plans their next vacation. She enjoys spending time with family, indoor rock climbing with Paul, making bread and (window) shopping.
Paul also loves to travel with his sweetheart, Amy, of 12+ years. He is an entrepreneur who operates two successful companies and, in his spare time, he enjoys riding his motorcycle and road bike, exercising, finding good deals, and planning their next adventure. Paul also organizes classical music concerts in their home.
Neither of us smoke, but do enjoy good wine and beer. The photos in our profile were taken in Taiwan, South Tyrol, Italy, French Riveria, Cinque Terra Grand Canyon, Tempe and on our boat in Arizona.
We are adventurous, inquisitive, fun, energetic and talkative, while being open-minded and respectful of all cultures and lifestyles. Becoming better people by learning about others and listening to their stories is what we enjoy most about our experiences through hosting and traveling using Airbnb. Traveling and exploring the world, meeting people and creating amazing adventures makes us really happy!
Our style of travelling is to become acquainted with the local customs, explore and experience the local scene as much as possible, while enjoying tasty and unique cuisine and beverages. We are self-sufficient and adventurous travelers willing to try many different things but certainly rely on our host's local advice for guidance. We are very clean, quiet and respectful travelers who will treat your place as if it is our own. We are also curious about our hosts and the things that make their home city so great.
Hosting travelers through Airbnb is a responsibility that we are thankful for, and our 'Superhost' status allows us to provide a wonderful service to many people. We tend to be very laid back when hosting, providing our guests with as much assistance or privacy as they desire.
We have hosted travelers from across the world and have ourselves traveled extensively abroad (Europe, Asia, Central America, South America) and in the US and have met the most fascinating people through hosting and traveling on Airbnb. We look forward to our next adventure!
