The Space

Privacy abounds in this centrally located, gated, downtown Tucson three bedroom, three bath home. The'split floorplan' means each of the three bedrooms is in its own wing; which is perfect for larger groups or guests seeking spaciousness. Two living rooms, one with a fireplace and extra sleeping area makes it so up to 8 people can stay here comfortably. The generous kitchen with restored Wedgewood antique oven/stove makes cooking a real treat! A marvelous master suite with delicious details and lavish claw foot tub that you will never want to leave! For your ultimate comfort, each room's climate can be individually controlled. Enjoy the best of outdoor/indoor living, as most rooms have their own (email hidden) you can find your favorite spot. Start and end your day sloughing your cares away in the very private spa. Come, relax, and delight in your home away from home in downtown Tucson!

This property was the owner's family homestead for two generations. Built of adobe and expanded over time, the property boasts awesome architectural, wood work and stained glass details. There even is a "truth" window where you can see the adobe for yourself.

Within walking distance are numerous restaurants, bars, galleries, museums, and on weekends farmer's markets. The modern streetcar (light rail system) will take you to the 4th Avenue/University of Arizona.

Tucson - aka the Old Pueblo - offers you many lovely days for golf, hikes, cycling, birding, live theater, museums, opera, visiting the: Desert Museum, Old Tucson, botanical gardens, Kartchner Caverns...or just soaking up the sun!

Enjoy Tucson's varied cuisine through our wonderful selection of restaurants. Drive northeast to Mount Lemmon in the Catalina Mountains for hiking, mountain biking, cycling, rock climbing, spelunking, or just lazying around in cooler weather. To the south is the artist's enclave of Tubac, and, even further south, an hour's drive puts you in Mexico for a day of shopping in Nogales, Sonora or half an hour more and it can be Tombstone or Bisbee!

Plan on visiting the Gem show, 4th Avenue Street Fair, Rodeo, USTA Championship, Accenture PGA golf, spring training, Colossal Cave, the Biosphere, Sabino Canyon, downtown Tucson, the University of Arizona, and SO much more. There TRULY is something for everyone.

Come enjoy for yourself, then you can say you've experienced the 'dry heat!'

  • Unique characterful home. Clean and well equipped. Host very accommodating. Responded helpfully. Good to be able to walk to town. Hot tub was the cherry on top.

  • In short, this place is lovely, and Evelyn is super great and responsive. Everything is as the photos would imply -- plenty of space and nicely appointed. We had a great time hanging out in the hot tub, cooking and relaxing with friends, and walking around the neighborhood. It's easy walking distance to downtown and 4th ave, coffee and restaurants, but also in between several great older neighborhoods to just walk around.
    There are a few quirks to the property, but Evelyn was so attentive and ready to help at any moment that I am sure it will just get better and better. I'd certainly stay here again!

  • When we decided to vacation in Tucson, we looked for a place close to downtown so that we could avoid driving at night. The "downtown oasis" was perfect. Evelyn had great restaurant suggestions, including the best coffee house ever, all within walking distance. She also suggested a local food coop for grocery shopping. The house was charmingly-decorated, super clean, excellently maintained, comfortable and well-equipped. Every light switch and cabinet was labelled, making it easy to feel at home. Our kids enjoyed the spa. The layout of the bedrooms gave everyone privacy. We were delighted with how quiet the house was despite its downtown location. The wireless internet worked well. There was always plenty of hot water for showers. The location also made for easy access to the highway for sightseeing beyond the city. We enjoyed meeting Evelyn when we arrived. She took the time to answer all of our questions about local resources. She was available by phone when needed. If we return to Tucson, we would definitely hope to book with Evelyn again.

  • My family had a very nice stay at your home. The home is beautifully taken care of and very comfortable. It is in a convenient location for downtown and had everything we needed to enjoy our family gathering. Evelyn was responsive and easy to communicate with. The yard and jacuzzi were an added bonus. Several family members commented on how much the enjoyed your home and would like to return. We have stayed in other cities and here in Tucson and haven't always felt that way. Thank you for providing this home opportunity for those of us who love Tucson!

  • This house is beautiful. It has an amazing location in the heart of down town Tucson. The hot tub is very nice. And Evelyn went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would enthusiastically recommend this place.
