Other Things to Note
Picture is of entire house. The Guest Cottage is on the left side of the picture. The Home Owners Association rules state that cars must be in the garage overnight. If you are uncomfortable pulling in and out of a garage you should probably look elsewhere. We can make exceptions for a short stay of a few nights. I can also get an exception approval from the HOA for a trailer for a short stay.
Please note the bathroom has a step in clawfoot bathtub with a shower. No walk in shower is available.
NOTE on PRICING: The prices listed for daily, weekly and monthly rentals are the average pricing. Summer rentals (off season) will show the discounted pricing when the final tally is made. At that time you can accept or cancel. Premium pricing will apply to Winter rentals (high season)..
Personal hygiene items: While I do provide hand liquid soap (and dish soap) for kitchen and bathroom, I DO NOT provide shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, toothpaste or sunscreen. Most guests have their own preferences and do not find this to be a game changer.
There is an iron and board available for use on request.
We are a gay married (yes, legally married in Massachusetts) couple. I am retired and he working at the University of Arizona. We have been together 9 years. You need to be comfortable with this. We provide a quiet and safe environment. No loud music or parties .
It was an amazing experience stay at Carl's place. The place was fantastic as described, and Carl was a very nice host. Would definitely recommended.
We stayed at Carl's place and it was great! He was there to greet us and explained all that we needed to know. We had a one car garage to park our car in which was awesome. The space was very cute and comfortable. We will stay here again! Maureen & Ron
Had a fabulous stay here! Carl was very gracious and understanding when I was running later to arrive than I had previously expected. The accommodations were very peaceful and quiet and located in a beautiful neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again!
Carl was helpful, he made everything easy and even recommended a mechanic to check my air conditioner. The studio was comfortable and convenient. The pool is outstanding and the neighborhood was very nice safe and quiet. We found a very nice restaurant not far away called Theresa's Mosaic Café that we really enjoyed.
Nice and well located
We met Keith and not Carl but the communication was easy.
the apartment is clean and you can enjoy the pool.
good stop for a night in tucson !
Fantastic experience at the studio. Comfortable bed, functional kitchenette, exceptional backyard with swimming pool and hot tub. On the west side of town, close to the freeway, set in the desert environment. Carl is a very accommodating host. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Tucson.
