About this listing
Visit Saguaro National Park West
A quite country home just 3 miles from Saguaro West National Park visitors Center which is a must see! Also near Sonora Desert Museum with raptor shows during the winter months (extraordinary!), many hiking trails in the Tuscon Mountain Park, San Xavier Mission, Old Tucson Western Studio Town and Casino del Sol which had nice restaurants and much more. Just 15 minutes from the Tuscon International Airport and Central Tucson. There is public transportation to this location just up the block. You have a private room at the opposite end of the house from the owner with two full baths to choose from at any time. A private patio to enjoy morning coffee or evening sunsets watching the birds and wildlife of the area. You can take small hikes into the Tucson Mountain Park right from the house. You will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with a simple breakfast included. If you have an RV there is plenty of parking and a 50 amp power connection. A small fee for the power during hot periods for A/C use. This house has two cooling systems and forced air heating for total comfort during all times of the year. We are blessed in Tucson that most nights cool to around 70 degrees even during the hottest months. Winters are of course the best time in this area from September to the beginning of April. Welcome to Tucson!

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you want.
Quiet neighborhood with native vegetation and
a fair amount of wildlife. Birds during the days and sometimes coyotes at night.
There is a city bus stop at the corner and easy access to the city and regional and National Parks.
I only ask that you leave the house and its contents as you found them. Respect the quite of the neighborhood and my neighbors at all times. If you use the kitchen, please clean up and use the dishwasher when required. I have a washer dryer that can be used. See instructions on the wall. C'est tous!
We very much enjoyed our stay here! Chuck is kind, friendly, helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable! His place is immaculate. He provides good amenities and great company! Excellent location as well. Close to Saguaro, and Tucson. We hope to return someday!
Charles is a great host and he made us feel most welcome. He walked us to the best place to see the saguaros at sunset and prepared us a delicious breakfast. The room is neat and clean and there is a beautiful garden around the house where you can spot a couple of red cardinals and hummingbirds among others. The place is quiet and restful and we enjoyed it very much.
Charles gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and was very solicitous to our comforts. The room was quiet, comfortable and had
close access to two bathrooms available to us.
He was helpful and very informative about the area. He cooked very tasty breakfasts to order for us. Jeff enjoyed playing pingpong with Charles. The patio, out back was surrounded by an attractive cactus garden. Charles' home was on a quiet street proximal to
Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert Museum.
Chuck is a wonderful host - he made us feel welcome in his home immediately and we enjoyed our stay very much. His home is ideally located near the Saguaro National Parkand Desert Museum.
Chuck couldn't have been a better host if he tried. I felt like a member of his family and the location of his home is perfect if you're visiting the Desert Museum.
Chuck is a very friendly and worldly man. He is a gracious host – giving you space when you wanted and yet there if we wanted to talk. He made sure our stay was perfect. We stayed for 2 nights since we were attending a wedding in Tucson, so we came and went at odd hours. He was fine with that. He made us a delicious breakfast each morning checking with us to make sure he prepared something we’d like. There was filtered water always available. The layout of his house gave us privacy and there were 2 bathrooms we could use. He gave us a key to the house and the room, so the room and one bathroom could be locked by us. The descriptions and photos are right on. We would definitely stay with Chuck again.
Charles was a wonderful and generous host! I had an extended stay with him... almost one month and we became fast friends. Charles shared great tips with alternate commute recommendations that radically enhanced my stay. I enjoyed the surrounding cacti in his yard and surrounding areas. Charles was happy to share his knowledge of the cacti. The house and room are clean. I made a recommendation on an improvement on the room and he implemented it the same day. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bathroom was attached to the guest room as that was not clear to me when I booked the room. I have gained a new friend and look forward to my next stay. I will surely stay here again when my travels bring me back to Tucson.
