This charming Spanish Mediterranean 1920’s fully renovated 1 bedroom 1 bath bungalow is nestled right in the heart of the Phoenix Arts District! We are sure your stay will be comfortable, relaxing and quiet…yet just steps from bustling Downtown Phoenix.

The area is a beautiful, historically-rich neighborhood located just Wast of Central Avenue. No need to rent a car as you have access to bikes on the property. It is also a quick walk to the light rail, public bike rack share, and public transportation. Less than a block to find: the Phoenix Theatre, Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Opera, and the Heard Museum.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Mary is an absolute sweetheart and has created a cozy little retreat that feels just like home! We loved looking through the pictures of the renovation of the space. She has thought of every detail to accommodate a comfortable retreat that is picture perfect from the lighting outdoors to the swing by the pool and the beautifully renovated bungalow! She has two dogs that were such a fun added bonus! We loved being greeted by them and playing ball with Naomi! But even if you aren't dog people she is respectful and told us to let her know and she would put them back in the house if they were ever a bother- which they weren't at all! Mary was readily available to answer any questions or ask us if we needed anything! The house was immaculately cleaned, very comfortable bedding, and smelled great! We will definitely be staying again in the near future! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Oasis in the desert.

  • 5 of 5

What a jewel! This little bungalow is beautiful, comfortable, and has everything you could possibly want or need. Such a charming property ~ and the owner, Mary, is just a doll.

From the moment you walk through the door, every inch of this place has been carefully curated to delight each and every one of your senses. The art is gorgeous, the couch and bed are incredibly comfy, the birds outside will delight you with their song, and the chocolate chip cookies laid out for our arrival smelled and tasted delicious!

Mary, thank you so much for allowing us to spend some time in your enchanted cottage.

With a little luck, we’ll be back!
