The space

The "pink room" is fully furnished with desk and linen in an artist's house in central Tucson. Room is available for women only, as there is a shared bathroom. It has wifi, and is a friendly house that includes an indoor and outdoor kitchen, and a large outdoor patio area.

I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and my work is found throughout my house, a personal gallery. There is a studio on the property where I teach workshops, and I love when fellow Creatives come to "join the conversation" - groups are welcome with artist and writer retreats. I'm a vegetarian (although you don't need to be).

The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Three major hospitals are 15 minutes away if you are a visiting nurse or intern. Around the corner is a friendly WIFI Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, a health food Chinese restaurant, American breakfast cafe, bakery, a Tiki bar, and of course a convenience store. Sprouts market is 10 minutes away. Buses to downtown are a block away, and beautiful Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes drive.

Please smoke outside in smoking areas if you're a smoker. There are 2 indoor cats (Lulu and Lucy), and they are very friendly. Coffee and tea is always available. I have a big yard on a quiet street, but this is central Tucson and not pristine desert. There are the sounds of dogs, traffic, sometimes the sounds of children playing.

Guest access

Access to garden, two dining areas, kitchen, living area, etc. And also my extensive movie collection.

Interaction with guests

I greatly enjoy meeting people, and love it when conversations and friendships happen with guests. However, it's been my experience that guests often have busy schedules, so quiet and privacy are important.

The neighborhood

Our central Tucson location is a quiet family neighborhood, and yet we are just a block or so away from one of Tucson's major boulevards with easy access to downtown, etc.

Getting around

Buses to downtown are a block away.

House Rules

Please smoke outside in smoking areas if you smoke, please respect other guests need for quiet times. Park in the driveway unless there is no room, and please clean up after yourself in the kitchen and bathroom areas.

I always love staying at Lauren's house when I'm in the Tucson area. The house is comfortable, convenient and pretty, with a big patio and garden I enjoy, and the room has a separate entrance and is quiet and comfortable. The area is very convenient for everything, and Lauren is always helpful and friendly. Definately recommended!

The room was great, big enough with a desk, bed is confortable, and the room has its own entrance. The backyard is great to spend some time outside, Lauren was a great host and the other guest were great too. The cats are nice as well. I enjoyed my stay at Lauren´s house. Thank you !

The room was pleasant and provided a homebase for my apartment search. It is located on central bus lines but it does take a while to get to the U of A campus and downtown.

Response from Lauren:
You know, I just knew this guest was a pain. She was miffed because I didn't text her before her arrival (she cold have called) - not everyone has text on their phone, but that was for her unforgivable. She thought the room wasn't big enough, the freshly washed towels weren't clean enogh, the vacuumed floor was dusty, and the bleached and scoured bathtub wasn't clean enough for her. And she didn't like having to share a kitchen either. For $33.00 a night (she only reserved one night) I guess she also expected a jacuzzi and champagne. Sorry, but no more one night guests - they are looking for a motel, not a home.

This room is really great! Private entrance, comfy bed and nicely decorated - like the rest of the house. Lauren is a very helpful and kind host with a lot of knowledge about Tucson and it's surroundings. I stayed here for two weeks, when I needed to go downtown I took the bus which was really easy since the busstop is close to the house.

Lauren thanks so much for allowing me to stay in your beautiful home. The room was really lovely, especially the two friendly cats who kept me company. My stay was very short yet I enjoyed my stay. I sincerely hope you are feeling better! :)

I'm a professional artist specializing in masks and community arts. I'm 63, love conversation and creativity. I'm a vegetarian, concerned with the environment, and have traveled internationally. I had so many good experiences with B&B's in the British Isles and Europe, where it is very traditional for families to open their homes, that I decided to try it myself. I had the same good experiences when I travelled in Indonesia, and stayed at "home stays".

Because there's a great wifi cafe around the corner, I no longer cook breakfast, but I do enjoy creating a bright, colorful, serene space for the women who come to visit, and am always happy to share what I know about Tucson and the Southwest. I love Arizona, especially its warm, sunny winters.

Renovating the 1962 Airstream trailor in the back yard, and creating a patio for it, has been my latest "art project"..........I love making things old new and inviting.
