Great location and so quiet! Perfect distance for the university and local sightseeing (Botanical Garden is lovely). Very clean with everything I needed!
While visiting family in AZ, I had a wonderful stay in this apartment with separate entrance attached to Wayne & Nancy's house. The location is excellent with only a 20 minute ride to the airport and easy access to the East Valley. This compact unit has everything needed for a comfortable stay, including all linens, dishes, microwave, small fridge, etc. The windows even have black-out curtains for a great sleep. I did not run into either host until I was leaving on the last day, but the communication was perfect. Wayne got in touch before my stay in order to ensure I had all the information needed, and it was easy to contact him throughout my stay. And the Fry's VIP card on the key chain saved me $50 on my shopping trip! Thanks for a great stay...I'll keep it in mind for my next visit.
My husband and I came to Tempe to do the Tempe Half Ironman . I was looking for a quiet place and not too far from the race site . It was perfect! So quiet and close to everything . The bed was great. The kitchen was well equipped and there was an electric grill outside which I used to grill my chicken.
I highly recommend staying here.
Clean. Secure. Efficiently organized. Walkable neighborhood. Quiet patio where we enjoyed the moon and stars. Seating bench in ocvered area to enjoy a fountain and plants. Appreciated the bottled water and snacks in the kitchen. The mattress was perfect!! Liked the recyle container and the garbage disposal. My husband was glad for the TV in the bedroom while I wanted quiet in the dining area. We hope to return.
We stayed at this location for just over 2 weeks and it was perfect for our needs. The studio apartment was clean and well appointed with everything we needed, including some complimentary snacks and bottles of water to begin our stay. The kitchen allowed me to make most of our meals in the room (we were on business rather than vacation), although the refrigerator was a little small for doing much extensive meal preparation. We also liked the privacy that the studio afforded and the quiet neighborhood. A washer and dryer were available, including detergent supplies. The host, Wayne, was very pleasant and responded quickly to questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and highly recommend the "Shippy Chalet"!
The Shippy Chalet is truly a special place. Very comfortable apartment with many thoughtfully provided amenities. The peace and quiet combined with such a fine location is an unbeatable combination. I will definitely miss it, will recommend it to others, and hope to return in the future.
I have never used a home rental before so I was very skeptical of this but so interested, financially speaking. It was definately the best option I made. I can't see anyone not benefiting from a place like the Shippy's. The home is very clean, organized, beautifully decorated and all small details are thought of. I was even able to leave with a suitcase full of clean clothes, best feeling ever after being away from home after 8 days! Nancy and Wayne are a lovely couple and ensure all is taken care of. They give others thier privacy and oh the garden, it's absolutely wonderful! One of my biggest concerns as a young lady was safety, and never did I feel at harm. The neighborhood is calm and definately has a welcoming vibe! They have the greenest grass on the block, it's wonderful! All stores are within a very, very good distance from them, along with starbucks, whole foods and even the mall! It's a wonderful place to retreat back to after a busy day or just stay in and enjoy the peacefulness their place offers. If you are reading this and are looking for a place to stay in this area I would highly recommend it to you! You will literally only need to take your clothes,and basic hygienic items, all other things are included even movies and books to enjoy! They are very good at responding to any questions in a promptly manner so don't hesitate to contact, ask questions and book your stay! God bless you!
