Unique desert experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Dome House! The location is perfectly convenient to Phoenix and the surrounding area, yet feels at the same time remote and serene. The air conditioner (especially for the person staying in the downstairs bedroom) is extremely loud, but the house is confortably cooled.

Owner's Response: Sorry about that. I called an air conditioning repair person and he said there was nothing wrong but it still clunks loudly when it shuts off. I will try someone else. Thank you for staying!

Fun place!

  • 5 of 5

It was fun to stay in a dome during our trip to Phoenix. We were attending an event at the convention center, this was an excellent location. It took approximately 15-20 min to get there. A huge TV and a pool table provided entertainment after a long day at the convention.

A unique experience

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the dome. It was a unique experience. The view of the city skyline in the evening is beautiful. The pool table was a hit. Sitting outside in the evening was relaxing. We came down to AZ for Spring training and this was a good location for the various stadiums. Thank you!

Dome Sweet Dome

  • 4 of 5

I brought my family of 7 to Phoenix for Spring Training and stayed in Sue's Dome. It was very enjoyable and spacious. Although it seemed remote, it was very close to everything we needed including supermarkets and restaurants. We loved the mountain scenery and took a lot of pictures in the yard with the cactus and mountains as backdrops. I would recommend it for large families on a budget. The home was well appointed and we loved the pool table and cable TV in all of the bedrooms. The only issue we had was arriving around 6:00pm and the cleaning lady was still working on the house from the prior guests, but we went grocery shopping while she finished and she did a nice job. I was also prepared from prior posts that mentioned the woodpecker going at the metal chimney pipe every morning. It was startlingly loud, but only lasted for a minute or so. Sue was great to work with from booking the reservation until the end of the rental. Thanks for letting us stay at your Dome.

Quiet place to relax

  • 4 of 5

We went down to catch some spring training games. It pretty centralized, it seemed everything we did was 30-45 minutes away, besides South Mountain Park which was about 15 minutes. After all the rushing around during the day you drive back and it was quiet and relaxing. It was really clean and had plenty to do at the house. We would definitely stay again. In the near future it could use some new carpet and the A/C was pretty loud but there isn't much they can do about that. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

Overall very nice.

  • 4 of 5

The house and surroundings were very nice, rustic and well kept. I'll get the negatives over with first. We were unable to get into the house until three hours after our permitted arrival time because the cleaning crew had just started. We had our dogs along, so we couldn't just leave them and head out for dinner, so we had to sit around for those three hours and wait. The other negative is that the air conditioner made a very loud, terrible racket when it both came on and turned off making for a difficult night's sleep. Don't rely on GPS the first time in, follow her directions. Also get ready for a very bumpy ride in and out.

The positives: The house was comfortable and clean (we know this firsthand) with views of the mountains, the city and colorful sunsets from the upstairs balcony. Lots of big screen TVs that we never turned on (our preference) and the internet service was excellent. Even though it was a drive to get anywhere, the location in the hills was worth it.

Owner's Response: Hi- I am sorry you had to wait for the cleaner. It is difficult when someone leaves at 11 and someone else comes in at 4PM but you should not have had to wait. I will have someone come in to see if they can repair the clank noise from the air conditioner.
