Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved this little house and yard. It was perfect for giving outside access to our dog, Blarney and easy storage for a bike. The interior stayed remarkably cool without turning on the air-conditioning. The location allowed easy access to Speedway Ave and the freeways. The area around was great for biking. We also visited four different dog parks not too far away. The casita was well equipped which made for a comfortable stay. George was an excellent host.

  • A delightful place and a delightful host. From the studio it was easy to get either to the mountains, desert, or downtown tucson. The eastern morning light and the singing birds in the nearby grapefruit tree were an extra bonus while sitting out in a very private courtyard. The accoutrements were complete particularly if you wanted to cook. Having a washer and dryer was nice for us hikers who came home with sweaty clothes! George lies a block away and if there was something we needed he was right there with it.

  • As a senior woman traveling alone, I was very happy to find the art cottage. I felt very safe and cozy and George and his wife were only a block away if I needed anything.
    I would stay there again in a minute. I love the place.

  • We had a wonderful stay in this cottage. We had not been to Tucson before and were so lucky to find this accommodation. The location was perfect as you could walk to most amenities and central for driving to parks and attractions. The cottage was perfect for two people and well equipped for cooking and lounging at home. The small space was well thought out and feels more spacious as a result. George was a great host too! Couldn't think of any way to improve this experience!

  • My husband and I stayed at the Cottage for 3 nights while visiting family in Tuscon. The location was central to where we needed to get to, perfect for 2, very nicely furnished and George couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. We would definately stay there again.

  • The key was the location. I was able to access all the places I wanted to go. The access to I-10 was critical for my travel plans. The amenities were great. I needed a washer and dryer- check. I needed to have a full size refrigerator to prepare meals- check. The dishwasher was a bonus. The articulating TV was a nice addition. I will stay here again. Thanks for the Nadine's pastry. Volcano cake was great!

  • We had a beautiful stay!!! George was a wonderful host!!
    The cottage is perfect and nicely laid out. It is perfect for two people. The layout of the studio is so that it feels like a one bedroom. The kitchen is full size and so is the bathroom. The bedroom and living room is perfectly separated with a pony wall which allows all the morning light into the cottage. The sky light allows all the day light you need for the rest of the day; it also has a black out screen if you don’t like moon light.
    Whenever we head back to Tucson we will for sure try to book this cottage.
    Thank you,
