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.
Tucson is a great place in the winter, and beautiful at any time of the year!
I live here, and guests are sharing my home, so friendliness and courtesy are very important to me, as well as respect for privacy.
Do believe the hype- Lauren is a wonderful host and she'll do anything possible to make your stay a great one- mine certainly was. It's a lovely house with all mod cons and a selection of beautiful cats- tea and coffee are always available, as well as dvds, help and information, and other little bits and pieces that make it feel like home. Thanks Lauren!
If you are a woman who likes a bohemien surrounding and cats, this is the perfect place for you. I really enjoyed my stay with Lauren and her two friendly kittes.
Lauren´s house is in a quiet street, but close to a main street with some restaurants and (very important if you do not have a car) a bus stop. The house and rooms are decorated with a lot of love, clean and lovely. I especially liked the patio outside the kitchen, which is lit with candles and fairy lights at night – a magical place. You can cook indoor or outdoor, and there is more than enough space in the fridge for your food.
Lauren is a friendly and helpful hostess who wants her guests to feel happy and comfortable.
Lauren is just the perfect host! She makes your stay nice and easy, and her house is very cute, quiet and clean. I definitely recommend to stay at her place!
Lauren's home became my home for a month while I explored the Tucson area. It is a quiet, safe and well located place for women travelling solo. Lulu and Lucy became my new best friends and I miss our peaceful catnaps. My best to Lauren and Co.
Lauren's home is so lovely and tranquil, and Lauren herself is a very thoughtful and gracious host. Location is very handy to buses and close to downtown, and the kitties are definitely a bonus for cat lovers.
