  • Tempe Little Casita is a little gem

    5 of 5

    This is such a nice spot to stay in Tempe! Lisa has done a wonderful job creating this guest accommodation and I would much rather stay here than a hotel room any day. The casita itself is contemporary, well designed and well appointed with cool rolling barn doors and a lovely bathroom. Everything I needed was right there as though all my needs as a guest were anticipated. I really appreciated the guest book that contained local eatery suggestions, maps and recommended activities in Phoenix. Look no further for a great place to stay!

  • We love the Tempe Little Casita!

    5 of 5

    This was our second stay and was once again perfect! Such a comfortable place to land in a nice part of Tempe. The neighborhood is quiet, yet has access to the shopping, restaurants, and services that we needed. Sprouts is a superb grocery store and is walkable by “Walk Score” standards. The amenities are complete at the casita and the apartments design is lovely and well thought out.

  • Fantastic! Little Gem!

    5 of 5

    What a beautiful little casita on a quiet residential street in Tempe, AZ. The bed was super comfortable, the little kitchen was well stocked and met my every need. Best of all, it was very clean-spotless in fact. Lisa has thought of everything that you could possibly need. The location is excellent for freeway access- 101, 60, 202 and 87. Ella is the four footed greeter, and is lovely dog. I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else the next time I visit Phoenix.

  • A welcome retreat

    5 of 5

    A quick 5 day spring stay to visit family in the Valley and discovered The Little Casita! Pictures are spot on....a welcoming, relaxing and unique retreat after days filled with sightseeing. Location is ideal to restaurants, shopping yet tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. Especially enjoyed the outdoor table/chairs in the morning hours. Lisa, great thought and attention to detail in the Casita! Thanks much for the hospitality, Susan

  • TLC to the max!

    5 of 5

    Appropriately named TLC (Tempe Little Casita) the name lives up to the other acronym...Tender Loving Care! Extremely clean and wonderfully designed, this place was truly a great “home” while we were in Tempe. Everything you would need to be comfortable was provided. We especially liked having the washer and dryer unit in the casita! And even though the casita was attached to the main house , it was very private and very quiet. We also loved interacting with the owner’s dog, Ella. She was very quiet and sat patiently inside her gated backyard area to see if we would provide her with a daily treat. If you are coming to the Tempe area, I would highly recommend this place!

  • A friendly hidden gem!

    5 of 5

    The pictures featured truly match the quality you arrive to! The bed was extremely comfortable — soft, yet supportive (as described by a picky sleeper). The Casita has many features that make it handicapped adaptable. The homeowner is very informative, helpful and friendly; as is her dog (especially when receiving the dog treats, thoughtfully provided by the owner). 😊 This is a great, quiet location with available street parking and easy access to many local roads that connect to the surrounding cities (especially if you choose not to travel the freeways/loops). It is close to the Phoenix airport and post-secondary institutions. There are many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping located within a few blocks of the Casita. It’s perfect for two — TLC (Tempe Little Casita) is truly a hidden gem!

    This is a small but cozy apartment. Perfect for two people. It was spotlessly clean and well-maintained and furnished. Lisa was friendly and helpful. If we're ever in Tempe again we would like to stay here again!

  • Quiet, clean, comfy, and well-stocked

    5 of 5

    I am amazed at how well thought out everything is in the place. Use of space is maximized without feeling cramped and any issue that could arise is anticipated (unlike other rentals I’ve stayed at, there is no shortage of linens, paper products, towels, and kitchen gear). The neighborhood is quiet but very convenient to ASU Tempe campus (we were visiting for graduation). However, we also had quick access to downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale to meet up with friends in the area. Lisa is super nice and responsive and the puppers is a ninja ^.^ This was WAY better than any of the available affordable hotel options.

    We were very pleased with our stay at Tempe Little Casita. It was great to come "home" after a day of site seeing to a comfortable place. Having laundry available for our use was a great convenience. We really enjoyed being able to walk in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Lisa provided information on area attractions and was very helpful answering our questions. We'll miss our two new furry friends, Ella and Frankie!

    5 of 5

    A clean, charming and comfortable place to come home to after busy days exploring this beautiful area. Every convenience you need is here and the welcome bowl of fruit, nuts and chocolate was lovely. The fold out bed is firm and worked perfectly for good night sleeps. We highly recommend this private suite as the perfect place to stay.

  • Terrific Tempe Casita!

    5 of 5

    Adorable! So enjoyed our stay in this well appointed and spacious casita. We chose this rental based on its proximity to ASU- about 5 minutes by car. Regardless, this rental far exceeded our expectations. Comfortable bed/sheets/pillows, well stocked kitchenette, an A/C that cranks, a cute patio to enjoy a glass of wine and a super spotless bathroom with washer and dryer! Lisa, the owner, was quick to respond to our request for an extra sheet set and couldn't have been nicer about our daughter wanting to stay a night away from the dorms. We've been staying in hotels to visit our ASU students but not anymore! Thanks Lisa!

  • Perfect

    5 of 5

    The casita was in a pretty, quiet, centrally located neighborhood. The casita was perfect size for me, cozy but in no way closed in. The bed was comfortable. The availability of plug-ins for all my electronic toys was more than adequate, and I travel with lots of toys and camera equipment and all their power supplies. There was lots of lighting, from bright to dim depending on your time of day needs. It was spotless and nicely decorated. I was able to prepare all my meals using the hot plate, microwave, and toaster oven. It has a keurig coffee maker which made me very happy. It also has a small refrigerator freezer. There was plenty of storage space, and I always over pack, and there was more than enough space for my clothes and toys and besuty supplies. The air conditioner was amazing! Lisa (the owner) was very friendly and accommadating. I couldn't have been more pleased.

    We feel very lucky to have found the Tempe Casita. The location is perfect for anyone wishing to attend Spring Training games. The closeness to Tempe and Scottsdale are also important. The one great feature that Tempe Casita can offer and other locations can't match is the hospitality of Lisa. She made us feel welcome and we look forward to returning in the future. Lisa---take care of yourself. Larry & Dottie

    Lisa greeted us shortly after we arrived. She is mindful about our needs and tending to them accordingly. We had our complete privacy and enjoyed our visit. The unit is clean, remodeled, and convenient. The neighborhood is very close to many attractions in Tempe, and 3 minutes away from our newly found favorite ramen restaurant. :)
