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!

Nothing better than the Shippy chalet.

  • 5 of 5

Whether it's for a short vacation or an extended stay you can't find anything better than the Shippy Chalet. This cozy little apartment is connected to the back of a private residence in a quiet, peaceful, and safe location in Tempe. It is just a short walk to a major grocery store, a Starbucks, and other shopping, and just a short drive to many restaurants and attractions that a large university town provides. The owners (Wayne and Nancy) have thought of everything-- pots, pans ,all kitchen utensils you could possibly need, and towels, linen, soaps, etc. for the bath and bedroom. You even have your own private laundromat facilities. When you arrive you can expect to find fruit, a variety of snack bars, and food condiments waiting on you. My wife and I have stayed there for 5 consecutive years and we have never even considered looking elsewhere. For us it is our home in Arizona. Thanks, Wayne and Nancy, for your hospitality and all you do to make your apartment the ideal place to stay in metro Phoenix.

Tempe Shippy Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The property was well appointed and maintained. There were a number of extras which made the stay more convenient and accommodating. I would recommend this property highly. The location was wonderful for easy access to shopping and places of interest. I have booked it again for later.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay at Wayne and Nancy's place. It felt like "home away from home" almost immediately. Their little apartment had everything we needed, it was peaceful and close to everywhere we needed to go. It was truly perfect! Thank you Wayne and Nancy, we'll be back! All our best, Tom and Suzanne Allen

My fiancé and I enjoyed our stay. We felt at home as we had everything available to us upon arrival - from kitchen and bathroom items to a comfortable and cozy house. I would recommend this to everyone.

Perfect Little Unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit has been designed with efficiency in mind. Everything you need is here, all in a well designed very compact space. It is in a quiet cul de sac neighborhood with a separate entrance and was spotless. The towels were large and fluffy , the shower nicely tiled, the bed comfortable with nice bedding. The small kitchen was all we needed. Everything was well thought out for what guests might need- coffee, snacks, soap, shampoo, magazines, books. The fact that several guests return every year, renting it for more than a month speaks for itself. It was perfect for two. And a great value. We enjoyed our stay.

Just the right size.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked our stay at the Shippey Chalet. It had all the housekeeping necessities, plus a few extras -- books, movies, snacks -- even fresh oranges off the tree. Groceries and transportation were handy, and the owner was always handy for assistance. Our relatives that visited were so impressed that they are going to recommend it to their other out-of-town guests -- unless we are using it again!
