About Lisa Van Laanen

Moved from WI many years ago and fell in love with the desert and the sunshine. We have enjoyed the fun and exciting vibe of Tempe for over 20 years. In 2015 decided to build the addition and are so pleased to be able to share it with others. Interests vary and change but headlines are ... traveler, grateful community server, avid hiker, lapsed golfer and minority owner of an NFL team.

Why Lisa Van Laanen chose Tempe

Central Tempe has been a wonderful neighborhood to live in. It's quiet and friendly but easy to get to the fun activities of downtown. Tempe is a great urban city with a community feel.

What makes this apartment unique

The privacy of the casita is perfect for those looking to enjoy the area but have a comfortable efficient home base.

Super vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

This was a great place for a one week getaway. The space was very clean and quiet and the kitchen had just enough to prepare meals if you wanted to stay in. The location is convenient, very close to major connection highways.

A very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

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. :)

Absolutely Delightful and Beautiful done.

  • 5 of 5

The TLC - Cassista is an Excellent Place for anyone who wants to visit and stay in Tempe. It is nestled in a quiet safe, home like neighborhood close to everything. The bed after a long day was exquisite, so comfortable and cozy, just as if you were stating at a 5 Star hotel but without the cost.

I hope to stay again and I would definitely recommend it to any of my family or friends. Loved it! Norma

Tempe Casita

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Tempe during the Fall & Spring for about 35 years. Finding The Casita & the owner Lisa on our recent trip was a wonderful experience. Lisa was very helpful and made our stay super. Lisa was available to answer our questions and responded quickly and efficiently at all times. The atmosphere of a quiet neighborhood combined with the planned design of the Casita went beyond our expectations. We look forward to enjoying The Casita during 2017 Cactus League Spring Training. We would recommend The Casita to anyone visiting the Tempe area. Thank you very much Lisa!!
