À propos de ce logement
Funky angles and open spaces in the heart of Phoenix's Melrose district-- the go-to area for thrifting and antiquing. 85 restaurants within 1 mile, 15-minute walk to lightrail, and close to public transport.
Central Phoenix has a lot of charm, but doesn't always have a lot of space. We've got both! This spacious room can be your home-base in the heart of the Melrose district. If you're coming as a family and need two rooms, please see our other listing "Travelers Repose N Heart of Melrose"
Our split-plan home means everyone has full privacy. The two guest bedrooms share a full bath with tub. Plenty of closet space means you can unpack and make Melrose Manor your home away from home. We've even got 2 kitties for you to love on if you're missing your fur babies!
Room has modern meets antiquity decor complete with a table to get work done or write the next American masterpiece.
There is a dry-erase board and markers provided so you can brainstorm away. Black-out blinds mean you can sleep as late as you need to without letting our bright Arizona sun in during those winter visits. Room has a ceiling fan if you love a light breeze while you sleep as much as we do.
Full-size Sealy pillowtop bed is framed in an antique hand-hewn bed from Java.
Accès des voyageurs
Our house is your house. Please make yourself comfortable while you're here. If you want to hang out in your room and soak up much-needed alone time (or a leisurely bath), we'll leave you to it. If you'd like to join us in the huge great room to talk, watch a film, or meet some of our friends, we're happy to have you! You also have access to the fantastic patio to enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather.
We're right in the middle of the coolest restaurants and cafes the city has to offer, but if you'd like a night at home, feel free to cook in our kitchen- just clean up after yourselve. You also have access to the washer & dryer.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We love the people we meet through AirBnB! Jacqueline is the bubbly hostess with the mostest (you can take the girl out of the south and all that) and Jason is the sweet and silent type that's more than happy to help any time he's asked. We've had AirBnB guests join us for dinner, parties, and nights out if they're up to it. We've also had folks we'd have a few nice chats with over coffee, and they were on about their business the rest of the time. Our priority is you enjoying your stay. We know the city and are suggestion ninjas in helping you find the perfect experience for your time in the Valley of the Sun.
Everybody's peanut butter and jealous that we live in the Melrose district, and we're so excited about sharing all it has to offer with you! Melrose is known for its quirky vintage and antique stores (Its dangerous being this close. Seriously). There are 85 restaurants within one mile of the house and include the hottest restaurants in the Valley like Southern Rail, Hula's, and Tranquilo. Lux, one of the most popular coffee shops (with a bar) is less than a mile, as is Changing Hands Bookstore (which also has a bar).
Steele Indian School Park- the Central Park of Phoenix- is less than a mile away, and the Heard Museum (3miles), Phoenix Museum (3.1 miles) are a short ride on the lightrail or a bike ride away. There is a Grid Bike Share rack right around the corner from us, with over 35 racks within the central corridor to make enjoying our 75F January days even better.
The lightrail stop at Campbell & Central is a 15 minute walk (0.8 miles), there is a Grid Bike Share rack on 7th Ave *just* around the corner from us, and buses run on 7th Ave (N-S) and Indian School & Camelback (E-W)

Smoking isn't allowed in the house, but you're welcome to smoke in the backyard by the firepit. There is a closed ashtray there for that purpose. Please dispose of butts in the outside bin on the southeast side of the front yard.
The house is not toddler-proof by any stretch of the imagination--not only breakables on lower shelves, but hard edges on the couches as they have wooden arm rests and hard corners on all the tables-- so if you're into free-range parenting and have a toddling wee one, we're probably not a great fit.
Please be respectful of neighbors when outside, and us and other guests while inside. This neighborhood is as much a peaceful oasis in the city for our neighbors as it is for us. :)
The kitty-girls are love-bugs, but its best to let them come to you. They don't like being picked up.
There are towel racks in both of the rooms, so please hang your towels there instead of over the shower, etc. Please put used towels in the bin in the bathroom when/if you take a fresh towel. Please be considerate of other guests and tidy up after yourself in the bathroom. Seat cover down and door shut when you're done, please! (Its a feng-shui thang)
Please be sure to wash your dishes right away and place them in the rack (or dishwasher) so things stay tidy. Please don't leave food or trash out on the counter- not only is it unpleasant, but no sense in tempting the kitties that would have you believe they're never fed ;)
Please let us know if you need something or if something isn't working. We can't help if we don't know!

Jacqueline: World traveler from Memphis, TN that has settled far earlier than I thought I would in Phoenix, AZ. Ecclectic in my tastes and friends, I ended up staying on after a student exchange in The Netherlands for 8 1/2 more years. Returned to the states in 2005 where I leveraged my 13 years in the classroom to start my own business. Love a game of pool as much as the opera, a good burger as much as a multi-plated meal, and am a master of the art of conversation.
Jason was born and raised in Minneapolis and came to Phoenix via Chicago to work in electronic engineering. Think you know the type? Not really. He plays the viola in 2 community symphonies. He also plays the piano. He loves travel and trying new things. He may be the quietest guy in the room, but he clearly enjoys himself and spreads his zen-vibe wherever he goes.
Jacqueline and Jason met at a tequila tasting party the summer of 2012 and their second date was to go see the opera La Boheme. That's how they roll- you never really know what's next.
