Michael is the most wonderful host that we could have asked for! He's organized, helpful, prompt with all correspondents and did a wonderful job at making us feel at home here in Tucson. Additionally, he allowed us to extend our stay for 2 additional weeks. Working with Micheal was such a wonderful experience. One I would highly recommend!

The house is exactly as pictured, for the most part. The space is ideal for one person or a couple. My only complaint is the huge bed in the master and thus the lack of closet and walk space in the room. It seems that others have posted similar reviews in this respect. The house is centrally located, which is great for getting food and access to downtown or entertainment. However, it also means it can get noisy at times. Though, Michael lives out of town for the most part, he has GREAT support locally for any issues that arise. Everyone is very responsive to resolve things quickly. Overall, I'd definitely stay there again and I think it's a great home away from home for both short and long term stays.

The bungalow was just as described when we first arrived. It is comfortable with all the amenities and has a great back patio, as well as a comfortable front porch. The house is located very close to the University of Arizona, as well as being walking distance to terrific restaurants, shops and the downtown area. It couldn't be in a better location to explore Tucson- It is a wonderful neighborhood; the neighbors have been welcoming and friendly during our long term stay and Linda (housekeeper) and Justin (maintenance) have been terrific and always helpful! The rooms are well equipped, comfortable and on the small side (which didn't matter at all to us). There is a comfortable fold out couch in the back room for guests. The kitchen is well equipped and really fun to cook in - We brought our dog with us and she is very comfortable here as well. The Pie Allen neighborhood is a great place to walk her and there are dog parks and other walking/hiking possibilities near by. Michael checked in throughout our stay to make sure everything was ok. Although he is based out of town, he is always available through Airbnb and has responded to the few inquiries we've had. We would highly recommend staying here for either a short or long term stay.

Michael was by far one of the better AirBnB hosts I have had in a while and I travel a ton for work. I walked in and he had an array of goodies in a basket to welcome me to the place. He checked in regular with me during the three week stay. Plus the place was close enough to walk to college or 4th Ave. Overall great experience and would recommend to stay here anytime in Tucson.

Great place with all the comforts of home. Michael was a very responsive host, and was great with communication before and during our stay. House was exactly as pictured. Very nice to have a dedicated parking spot. Convenient location, within walking distance to cafés, restaurants, and the U of A campus.

This is a great house, and Michael is a great host. Absolutely no complaints. Perfect location, nice kitchen, very responsive host, and shall I mention the amazing peaches and figs growing in the back? Next time I'm in Tucson I will definitely stay here.

The house is in a great location called the Pie Allen Neighborhood. It is within walking distance of UofA and 4th Avenue where there are restaurants, bars, and entertainment. The home itself is fairly nice. I was a bit surprised initially, it was smaller than I thought, but I never felt claustrophobic, perhaps because it has front and rear covered patios. While the bedroom was a bit small, the bed itself was actually fairly comfortable. We REALLY liked that the Michael has a cleaning person come to the house once a week. . .we try to keep things clean, but get busy at times. The cleaning person also makes check-out fairly easy. TL;DR - it's a bit small, but the location more than makes up for it. . .will stay here again.

My job has me either in the SF Bay Area, or travelling afar most of the time, so my Tucson bungalow was sitting empty. I asked my housekeeper Linda if she would help me to list the house on AirBNB for selected guests. My sister in law, Jennifer, is now helping me with reservations and correspondence. The bungalow is pretty adorable, and is walking distance to the University, Downtown and Fourth Avenue. Linda keeps it super clean and ready for short term rentals, and Jennifer is now managing the reservations process. Together we make a great team, and have fixed up the house next door now to offer guests additional options in this interesting part of town. We hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Tucson.
