Interaction with Guests
I respect your right to quiet enjoyment of the property.
This is a neighborhood with views of the Catalina Mountains. Houses are typically on 1 acre lots with much of the native desert preserved. The subdivsions across the street are deeded horse property. If you are walking be prepared to wave back at the passing cars.
Not far from the Interstate. Within 20 minute drive to Downtown and UA. Close to Foothills Mall, Tucson Mall, and the upscale La Encantada outdoor shopping center. The award-winning Tohono Chul Park is 2 miles. Bus stop is within 1/2 mile. Rillito River Park is 3/4 of a mile and a great place to walk, run or bike.

Please: keep the noise down after 10pm and close windows/turn off inside lights when not home. No smoking indoors. Please do not block garage access but ok temporary for unloading.
Helen had fresh fruit, bagels and chilled water waiting for us. Her clean and comfortable apartment is a great find. The true gem though, is the artful private outdoor area and the fire pit above. It was a wonderful place to relax in the morning and enjoy the desert landscaping and all of the many birds. I was greeted by a little lizard when I took out the recycling and we came across a rabbit in the driveway one evening too. It feels so private and secluded but the nearest grocery story is only minutes away. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! My only regret is that we were so busy with 4 college baseball games that we did not have more time to enjoy.
We had a lovely stay here. Very quiet and private neighborhood yet close to the places we wanted to get to. Would definitely stay here again.
It was lovely to stay at Helen's house after a long trip. The area is very beautiful with cooing doves and lots of desert plants. She waited up late for us and provided us with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable.
I enjoyed my stay at Helen's guest house in Tucson. It was nice and private and everything was supplied to make the stay comfortable. Helen was very pleasant and accommodating. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed staying at Helen's place. She was very easy to interact with and gave me my privacy and space.
My stay was peaceful and enjoyable. I loved waking up in the morning to the sound of birds, and the peace and quiet at night. The space was bigger than I thought it would be. I recommend this for you if you want to get away from the city noise and just enjoy some down time.
Once again, staying at Helen's was perfect. She allowed us to arrive/check-in early so we could then go to the Gem show. The place is very clean and was just right for my husband and I. She even contacted me prior to our arrival to ask if there were any refreshments we wanted. This was my second time here and I plan on staying here again next year!
Our host Helen was very accommodating, even contacting us before our arrival to see if we wanted anything special. She had a sweet treat waiting for us, and even though our arrival was delayed she stayed up past her usual bedtime to greet us.
The apartment was simply decorated, yet well-appointed. And it was very clean.
My wife and I enjoyed the private, gated courtyard outside our door, and we got a kick out of the whimsical pieces and landscaping in her yard in her quiet neighborhood.
We had a comfortable stay and a nice time.
