About Sabina Kelly
An Arizona native, I am proud to show off my slice of iconic Arizona history that I own with my husband in vibrant downtown Phoenix. Recent empty-nesters, our 4 kids are away at college or all grown up so we escaped the suburbs and are living our dreams! When we aren't working on our house, we are busy playing with our German Shephard, Roscoe, or we might be fly fishing, camping, or creating some art piece - we both are creative types! I own Studio Bleu where I create jewelry and sculptures out of vintage glass and soldered metals. We also sit on governing boards of the Phx Art Museum and The Herberger.
Sabina Kelly purchased this House in 2015
Why Sabina Kelly chose Encanto
You will love our charming bungalow! Whimsy and spirit greet you at the door with its fresh and modern decor, as well as original art displayed from local artists. Quality beds and luxe linens make sleeping a restorative experience, and though it may be hard to get out of bed with such comfort, you can find even more pampering awaits you when you wrap yourself in the thick fluffy robe hanging in the closet of each bedroom! Continue your sumptuous morning with a shower or bubble bath, using the provided bath toiletries befitting a boutique hotel. And of course treat yourself to a great cup of coffee using the French press and fresh ground specialty brew stocked in the kitchen for you! After you have lounged and enjoyed the home in comfort, perhaps it's time for a couple of fun games of Bocce Ball, and then visiting our garden for some seasonal fresh munchies, and hanging out in one of the two large patios with some wine and a view of the beautiful xeriscape grounds, you won't want to leave! Our home is located on the same property, so we are available if you need us, but invisible if you seek privacy and solace.

This home was an urban oasis!!! We are from the Phoenix area and chose this perfect bungalow for a Garth weekend! The concert was amazing and our experience in this home was as well. Sabina & Jack were excellent hosts. Thank you for sharing your home!!!
Amazing setting, great location!
A great vibe. Wonderful house. The yard just inviting. The surroundings amazing...great restaurants, museums close by... the Coronado neighborhood open and friendly!
Awesome place, great and accommodating hosts
Loved it. The Urban Desert Bungalo is cool, comfortable and clean, and conveniently located. Sabina and Jack are great hosts and accommodated all our needs for our party of 6 with ages ranging between 26 and 85. Strongly recommend staying here.
We stayed for three nights recently. Sabina and Jack were super hospitable without being intrusive. The back yard is amazing, they have done such a nice job. The bungalow is decorated perfectly and has everything you need. Furniture and beds are comfortable. Area is cool, it's in the arts district, full of cute bungalows and fun places to eat. Barrio's Cafe is not in the Arts District, but is delicious. Look it up!
Perfect location for Cactus League baseball trip.
Great attention to detail....plush towels,, solid cutlery.
Great retro feel ..esp kitchen
Fabulous courtyard and front porch..perfect mix of sun and shade
Sabina n Jack perfect hosts,,,just the right amount of availability / socialization vs privacy
Great Digs and Good Vibes
This is our second stay at Urban Desert Bungalow and we couldn't be happier with the house, the property, the location and the hosts! Sabina and Jack are wonderful 'neighbors' who always make sure everything is in tip top shape, plus they are fun to be around. They respect your privacy if that is what you want as well. The house is a real home thanks to Sabina touches at every turn. You will be welcomed with world class photography by Jack Stuler that makes your stay like being in a gallery. The cozy little bungalow has everything you need. We enjoyed the back patio as well as the front porch...sun or shade is your choice. The fire pit and chimney are nice touches for cooler nights. The location lends itself to walking with great restaurants and museums a short stroll away. Don't forget to take the time for a game of bocci or corn hole. You will enjoy!
The Coronado Historic District is located in the downtown Phoenix area, and staying in this bungalow positions guests in the perfect location to enjoy the many attractions Phoenix and the surrounding areas have to offer. Coronado, a highly desirable area, is know for its eclectic, bohemian vibe, and is home to a large population of artists, architects, musicians, artisans, and folks who love creating environments to enjoy through renovating their property, tending the community garden, organizing street fairs and home tours, front porch concerts, lending library and tool shed program, and family-friendly environment. Open minds and open hearts abound in this self-governed community of family and friend-oriented neighbors. "Historically Modern", as the community tag line proclaims, is explained well in the neighborhoods' Facebook page, where you can find details if you wish to discover more about the area in which this property is located.
