Description

The space

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.

Wi-Fi
The signal is fast and strong throughout our home, including the pool area.

BEDROOM
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.

BATHROOM
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.

Parking is free and is available on the street directly in front of our home. It's common for residents and guests to park in the street.

BREAKFAST
Coffees and Teas are provided daily as a self-service in the kitchen on top of your personal, private refrigerator.

Interaction with guests

Our interaction with you can be as much or as little as you would like. We are happy to sit down and chat, grab a beer/wine and discuss life, travel and fun things to do or just allow you ultimate privacy to be by yourself.

The neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is called The Lakes of Tempe and is the first master planned community in Arizona with a private lake. Our private 56-acre lake is one-of-a-kind and makes our home and community quite unique. You can even use our Kayak to get exercise or for a peaceful 'cruise' around the lake.

The Lakes of Tempe has some of the largest trees in the Phoenix area with homes having lush green lawns and beautiful landscaping.

Our home and neighborhood are quiet, peaceful and comfortable and just minutes from anything you want to do. Your oasis in the desert awaits you and we hope you will enjoy your stay.

Awesome place, centrally located to lots of different activities and attractions. Paul and Amy are easy to talk to and can recommend lots of great ideas if you need any recommendations for the area; things to do, places to eat, things to see, etc.

Paul welcomed us even though we had a late arrival, he was friendly and showed us everything we would need to know about the house. The home was clean and cozy and quiet. We hardly ran into Paul/Amy at all. The pool outside was beautiful but wasn't heated at the time we were there so you may want to ask about that if you're looking forward to swimming! The house is set up in two wings- one wing is the guest wing (two separate airbnb rooms) and also has the homeowners private office with one shared bathroom. The other wing is where the homeowners bedroom is and the two wings are separated by the common living space. The kitchen has a mini fridge for your use and other shared amenities. Was right next to a Whole Foods and Starbucks - location was PRIMO for us. Restaurants close by, safe and quiet neighborhood.

Paul and Amy's place is beautiful, and they are wonderful hosts. We arrived to a warm welcome and tour despite the somewhat late hour. Our bedroom was exactly as pictured and there was personalized note to welcome us. Paul was very easy to reach and always at the ready with tips for navigating the area and recommendations for great places to eat and play. We had a wonderful time.

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Paul and Amy's! I highly recommend booking for anyone looking to stay in the Tempe/Phoenix/Scottsdale area. The house had great amenities (hello pool and bitet) and was located very close to a Whole Foods. We were able to grocery shop and cook at home using the kitchen and outdoor grill. Paul and Amy were very accommodating and made us feel right at home. They had amazing suggestions on nearby hikes, food, and more. I'll definitely book with Paul + Amy if I am to visit the Tempe area again, and I encourage you to do the same!

Paul + Amy User ProfilePaul + Amy is a superhost.

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!
