About this listing
The "Blue Room" offers a peaceful setting in an artists home in Central Tucson. Wifi, indoor and outdoor kitchen, garden, easy access to University, shared bath, cafes around the block, 15 minutes from downtown. For Women only.
Coming for the Gem Show, or a snowbird escaping the cold? The "blue room" is fully furnished with desk and linen in an older house in central Tucson for WOMEN only.
We also have a cute private Airstream trailor in the back that offers privacy (please see our guesthouse trailer listing).
The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Around the corner is a friendlyl WIFI Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, American breakfast cafe, bakery, Mongolian (email hidden), and of course a convenience store. Buses to downtown are half a block away, and beautiful Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes drive away. Shared bath, and a dining area as well as patio for additional dining (there is also an outside kitchen!). Full kitchen in the house, wifi internet. Please smoke outside if you're a smoker. There are 2 indoor cats (Lulu and Lucy), and they are very friendly. There is also an outdoor kitchen, complete with barbeque! Sometimes we enjoy doing breakfast, but coffee and tea is always available.
I have a big yard on a quiet street - but, this is central Tucson. There are the occasional sounds of dogs, traffic, sometimes the sounds of children playing. If you smoke you MUST smoke outside. I have a washing machine for guests use, but not a dryer - just the "solar system", but if you require a laundromat, there is one nearby.
I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and my work is to be found throughout my house. I'm very interested in sustainability and green technology, and I love to garden. I'm a vegetarian (although you don't need to be), and I enjoy meeting interesting people.
I require a profile from guests, and will not rent to people who won't tell me something about themselves. We also cannot accept same day reservations, and prefer that reservations be made at least 2 days in advance.
Tucson is a great place in the winter, and beautiful at any time of the year!
Interaction with Guests
Friendliness and courtesy are very important, as well as respect for privacy. But it's always may hope that friendships are formed when guests come to stay!
I'm on a quiet street, but convenient - one of the cities main streets is just around the corner, with cafes, restaurants, bus stop, convenience store, etc. Not far away also is Reid Park, the biggest park in Tucson, which offers biking trails, a pool, even the Zoo.
Buses are available nearby to downtown and the University.
If you smoke please smoke outside on the patio. Help yourself to coffee and tea at any time. Lulu and Lucy are indoor cats, so please be careful not to let them outside - they just aren't ready for the "great outdoors" yet!
