My husband and I adore Tucson and have called the Old Pueblo home off-and-on for the past 15+ years. We love exploring, chowing down on great food, and hosting guests/friends/family. We've traveled using AirBNB extensively and tend to like a peaceful, relaxing environment with limited interaction with hosts. In turn we try to provide this for our guests. If you're needing more hands on hosting, please ask!
