Covered parking in our 10 steps from your door.

What makes this apartment unique

Private, efficiently organized space, quiet, cute, super clean & includes almost anything a traveler might need. Safe neighborhood & close to public transportation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a long drive we arrived about 1 am and we were instantly delighted by what we found. SO MANY thoughtful touches, from the motion sensor lights, to the fan being on, the snacks, the adorable furnishing, and that was just the beginning. Each day we discovered other things that delighted us. During the day, we worked on my son's guest house that he will be staying at while he attends ASU. But at night, we had the pleasure of "coming home" to this beautiful place. Thank you so much for everything!

Lovely and quiet little apt.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I got out of my car upon arrival I heard kids laughing and playing on their bikes and I loved it from there on. The last place I rented was in the inner city area and very sketchy so this place was welcomed. Small but has everything you need and close to coffee and food. Two thumbs up!!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Shippy Chalet for two beautiful weeks. The apartment was clean, well furnished, and the personal detail to making the apartment inviting was truly appreciated. Wayne provided snacks, water, coffee. and other edibles prior to our arrival. His hospitality far exceeded our expectations! We encourage others to stay at the Shippy Chalet when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to another visit and know where we will stay! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Denise and Windsor
