Comfortable temperature control with ceiling fans and dual split A/C and heat in bedroom and living room. Skylights throughout provide filtered natural light. Wireless internet, 42” plasma TV, Blu-ray DVD, and stereo.

Centrally located with convenient access to many Tucson and Southeast Arizona attractions. Four miles to downtown Tucson or the University of Arizona campus. Very close to Reid Park golf, zoo, and walking paths. A short walk to several local restaurants, a bakery, and coffee shop.

The description of the cottage was accurate and the hosts provided several amenities like great coffee, some teas, olive oil for cooking - etc which was very nice. A special surprise was some gluten free bakery items.
We enjoyed our stay and found it very comfortable and homey.
Having laundry there was a big plus since my husband is disabled.
I just spent four weeks here and absolutely loved it. It was home, not just a place to stay. As has been said by so many other reviewers, Joan & David are terrific hosts and have thought of everything. The place is charming with a lot of high quality details and impeccably maintained. Saying the kitchen is a kitchenette is not doing it justice. It lacks only a full size range, but the induction hot plate is an amazing little appliance and there is a convection toaster oven. You can definitely prepare meals here.
This property is built of genuine adobe and you just feel like you are part of the real Tucson of old. It is in the San Clemente Historic District in a lovely quiet neighborhood - great for walking or running.
Yes, there is road noise during rush hour, but only the very narrowest end of the building faces the road and with the front door closed, it is really not a problem. You don't notice it at all in the bedroom. I almost always sleep with earplugs when I travel and I never needed to here, it was very quiet. I miss it already!
This is such a wonderful air bnb- really cozy living area, great kitchen, walk in shower, comfy bed and pet friendly too! . Joan met us with the keys and showed us each room and we shortly met David after, who grabbed us some fruit to eat. Lovely hosts, lovely spot. Would definitely stay here again :)
We had a lovely stay in the casita. Hosts were great, respected our privacy. Clean, well-equipped, beautifully decorated. We lacked for nothing, but knew they'd jump to our aid if we ever needed anything. They even came up with a list of recommended seasonal activities just for us. Highly recommended.
David and Joan are very welcoming. They showed us the turtles in the backyard and gave great recommendations for the local area. We brought our dog along for the trip and it was great to have so much room and a beautiful backyard.
My fiance and I spent five days with David and Joan during December 2014 for a wedding in Tucson. The day we arrived we were greeted punctually and made cozy and comfortable immediately. The house was very clean and all the essential amenities were provided. The house is equipped with two temperature control units, one in the living room and one in the bedroom which provided the perfect way to stay warm at night and cool during the day. Well...we did not need the air conditioning as it was only in the 60's during the day.
We had fresh oranges every morning from the orange trees out back and the moderate temperatures and abundant skylights made for a wonderful escape from the cloudy Minnesota north woods.
We had a private driveway/entrance on the North side of the house and being right on Broadway, were within walking distance from all the necessary shops, stores and restaurants. The zoo was even just a few blocks away.
Our hosts provided lots of great travel information, brochures and even advice about general city safety. Many of the appropriate comforts from home were provided such as coffee, towels, cleaning supplies, blankets and a big screen tv.
As we are very particular people who come from a hospitality business background, we would not hesitate to recommend Joan and David as well as to return to their house for any future trips to the high desert.
Thank you to them and to airbnb for providing us a wonderful alternative to the countless dirty and uncomfortable hotel options.
Joan and David welcomed me into their guest house with coffee, fruit and English muffins for breakfast...very welcome after a long day of travel and no time to get groceries. The house is wonderfully decorated with local art and the couch, bed and shower all all wonderful. I enjoyed walking through the beautiful neighborhood and sipping coffee in the courtyard while watching the hummingbirds. They thought of everything to make my stay very comfortable and gave great advice to explore Tucson from this centrally located house.
Both recently retired, we have lived in Tucson for 19 years and fallen in love with the desert Southwest. David, originally from Michigan, retired from a purchasing career in natural foods. Joan, originally from Philadelphia, retired from accounting for non-profit organizations. We enjoy the local music scene (like our community radio station), gardening, and discovering the history, archaeology and culture of this part of the country.
