"This place was awesome in every possible way and the hosts are very nice people. If I win the lottery I'm gonna buy this place."
"This is a great place to stay. Rooms are very comfortable, full kitchen, huge living room for everyone to gather in and ample parking for multiple cars, and Jody and Carol couldn't have been more accommodating. As a bonus, the house is seconds from the interstate and a stone's throw from the airport and downtown right in the middle of a great bunch of restaurants, galleries and shopping. Do yourself a favor and when you're in Phoenix, stay at Jody's. I know we will whenever we're back in Arizona."

I've created a "manual" to the neighborhood with suggestions to the closest conveniences, delivery services, light-rail/bus maps, and other little pieces of info that will make your stay here even more comfortable.
Client bookings of two weeks or longer will receive bi-monthly housekeeping free of charge.
Again, this is my home; so I'm looking for cool people that will respect my home and enjoy its artistic history. We look forward to hearing from you!
This is the one neighborhood in downtown Phoenix where you can find three coffee shops in a .1 mile radius.
Looking for a bar? No problem... You are staying on Sixth Street, so just make a hop, skip and a jump to Lost Leaf Bar on Fifth Street -- serving hundreds of craft brews, and no driving is required.
Looking for an espresso and a Monte Christo crepe before your big day at the conference center? Walk two hundred paces, and you jump for joy at the amazingness of my favorite breakfast treat.
Two hundred paces too far to walk for breakfast? No worries! Tammie Coe cakes is directly across the street -- serving coffee, fresh bread, breakfast, lunch, pastries and of course, Tammie's world famous cakes.
Want nachos at 3am on a Friday night? Walk to NachoBot and have this insane, yet amazing desire fulfilled. Honestly, I never knew I wanted a nacho bar in the neighborhood, until it showed up. Now I can truly say I live in the coolest neighborhood in Phoenix.
Brunch on Sunday? $10 Pitchers of Mimosas? Walk from 6th Street to 4th Street, and you are at a full-service, joyous restaurant called Bliss/Rebar. There is a dining side, and a bar side -- so your brunch experience can be whatever you want it to be.
Vegan? Not a problem. Conspire Coffee Shop on 5th Street has you covered.
AND THIS IS JUST IN THE BACKYARD OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
There are so many wonderful independent businesses within walking distance to discover: The Downtown Phoenix Market (for locally grown, eco-friendly shopping), Revolver Records, Made Art Boutique, countless galleries, dance studios, Matt's Big Breakfast, Pizzeria Bianco,
And of course, you're staying here because you want to be close to downtown -- so all of the corporate establishments are also well within walking distance, as well. (My mom and I just walked to Chase Field for the Home Opener of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and I'm pretty sure it will remain one of my favorite memories - ever.) :)
That is exactly the reason why you'll love staying in my home - and exactly the reason I love sharing it.
I was lucky to buy a house in a burgeoning neighborhood before all of these wonderful stores and galleries popped up. So, it seems like this little oasis in the middle of a burgeoning artistic neighborhood -- and it is. It truly is a one of a kind house, and a one of a kind experience -- and it is such a joy to share that experience with people like you. :)
Walking distance to Chase Field, Arizona Center, Phoenix Convention Center, US Airways Center, ASU Downtown, the Genomics Center, and it is only a quick trip on the FREE Dash Shuttle to Arizona Government buildings, like City Hall. There is also a ZipCar lot, for your short trips that require a vehicle, less than a half mile away.

We really liked this place a lot, they were so nice, they started us off with fresh fruit and muffins and other food stuffs. The neighborhood is really interesting and hip, and Jabot Coffee has the best java ever. They do need to upgrade the beds, only the master bedroom king bed was good, the futon sleeper and two day beds were bad. It would also be better to put a doulbe bed in where the day beds are as that room is right on a busy street and super noisy! Otherwise, great space, location, and hosts!

I paid Jody Gnant almost $1300.00 of my very hard earned money to rent her NYC apt in May. She emailed (!) me in the middle of the night, hours before we were to fly out of NC, to tell me the apartment was not available. Within one hour of our departure, I found the cheapest hotel in Queens (since she had ALL my accomodations money!) and had to stay two nights there before finding a replacement apartment. Jody sounds like sugar wouldn't melt in her mouth. But let me warn you: she absolutely REFUSES TO RETURN MY MONEY, AND WILL NOT ANSWER ANY OF THE MANY ATTEMPTS TO COMMUNICATE WITH HER!! It has been 10 weeks now, and thought if I just kept emailing, calling, etc, she would see I would not give up. BUT SHE STILL WON'T RESPOND, AND I HAVE HAD TO START COURT CLAIMS AGAINST HER BOTH IN NY AND AZ.
