This is a beloved family home that we have been renovating in a green way. So far we've added solar electric and water heating, insulation, and sustainably harvested wood floors. We are offering space in the home so others can enjoy it too and hopefully, be inspired. We are leveraging the funds to continue our mission to make the home a stunning example of how you can take an inefficient house, and turn it into an energy efficient, sustainable home. If you stay with us many times we hope you'll enjoy the journey with us.
Location doesn't get better than this in Phoenix/Scottsdale! You will literally be overlooking the valley. From the house you can see Downtown Phoenix, the airport with planes landing in the distance, South Mountain, and of course Camelback on which the home sits. This is our family home which we rent out as we only use it a sporadically. This is a place to escape and feel like you're in the desert but, have all the convienience of being in the middle of everything. It's located a very special enclave of custom estate homes.
Our pool is heated if you wish it to be. There's an additional charge for running the pool heater and we'll need to know at time of booking (if instant booking we need a couple of days in advance) to ensure it's ready for you as it takes a while to get to temperature.
ABSOLUTELY NO PARTIES or similar gatherings without prior permission. We've never had issues with families or friends traveling together, family dinner/birthday party or things like that, we are specifically addressing large and or loud parties.
There are many wonderful clubs and environments nearby for such activities. The area we are in is an upscale housing area. As such you may find yourself without a place to stay and we will retain 100% of your security deposit if such an event takes place without prior permission. If in doubt please ask before booking. Sorry to be so blunt but there are strict rules about events in the area and not following them jeopardized guest safety/experience and our ability to host.
We do collect a security deposit which will not be returned if there are noise complaints, issues from the neighborhood or if our cleaner has to completely reconfigure our home, or re-establish all the TV and other wiring after your stay.
We have very few rules except to enjoy yourself and be respectful of our home and neighbors. We've tried to set everything up so you have a 5-star experience all around all. So all you need is your clothes and to focus on having a good time in our home as though it's your own.
The few small rules we have are:
* No smoking
* No pets
* Our home is not suitable for loud parties
* Guests all must digitally sign the agreement at
(URL HIDDEN) (the agreement can be visited multiple times by different folks)
We offer a 50% discount for rental days past the 60th day. Week and Monthly discounts are set to be automatically done by Airbnb for our home.
I love anything with a story behind it. I really enjoy any sort of cultural event and great conversation.
In Phoenix we doing a green remodel on a home we recently purchased that was built in 1980. Our first step was insulation, power, and water quality. We are now 100% Solar powered, heavily insulated, and whole house carbon filtered. Next steps are interior and landscape.
In Cambridge/Boston we are working with a 124 year old Victorian. It's beautiful with a lot of New England charm. Many homes of the type in the area are gut remodeled and turned into condos or modern style living spaces. We are working hard to maintain its hand built Victorian charm while greening it's infrastructure where possible and protecting it for future generations. It's literally an antique we feel more as stewards than owners of.
We are now sharing these homes with others and using any money we earn to further the renovation projects. We hope to meet people that will continue with us on this journey and get to enjoy things each time they come back as we further improve the spaces for all to enjoy.
