David and Joan's "Cozy Guest House" is the perfect little piece of Tucson paradise. It is ideally located in central Tucson with easy access to much of what makes Southwest Arizona wonderfully unique in it's history and geography. Most particularly David and Joan have created a beautiful, relaxing oasis in the private courtyard which gives their guests their own desert botanical garden.

Joan and David's place was a perfect haven for us to explore the Tucson area! It was quiet, super clean, artfully decorated, and comfortable. But as we always discover, it is the wonderful conversation with them that made us feel especially welcome. Their beautiful garden with all the animal friends was a special delight and is one of the highlights of our AZ trip!

David & Joans place was the perfect base and oasis for my explorations around Tucson. The inner courtyard with water features is a very relaxing. The guest house is well appointed and located in the historic San Clemente neighborhood - take a stroll around to appreciate the fine examples of Sonoran living. David & Joan were very helpful and always available if I needed anything. There was secure space for both of my bicycles. Look forward to staying here again the next time I am in Tucson.

Charming, clean and well equipped home. The location was central and easy to get to. David and Joan were wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, at home and like we've known them for years. Can't recommend their home enough!

We were very pleased with our accommodations. David & Joan were delightful, environmentally conscious hosts; we could have as much or as little contact with them as we wanted; a beautiful "zen" garden with citrus blossoms, butterflies, hummingbirds, and a rushing brook fountain connected/separated their space and ours. I was perfect! Our quarters were cottage like and very comfortable. The shower was instantly hot (to conserve water, I assume) and everything was so accessible. Thank you for a wonderful stay and for showing us that composting isn't that hard to do! We'll be back.

David & Joan User ProfileDavid & Joan is a superhost.

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.
