Relax in this spacious southwestern home surrounded by beautiful Arizona desert in Tucson's foothills. Enjoy the full-service kitchen, laundry room, and Internet. You'll have easy access to mid-town and all the best dining. This is shared housing. The hosts live on one side of the large house and guests reside on the opposite side, separated by the dining room, living room, kitchen and down a hallway. Two bedrooms are available separately.
The floor plan has a split-bedroom design, with the master suite and office on one side and your private room tucked away on the far opposite side. You’ll feel like the entire house is yours for the duration of your stay.
Immediately outside your room is a Keurig coffee maker and tea for a morning lift. During the day, take a little time to bask in the sun on the patio and relax with a fire and BBQ in the evening.
The property is located in Tucson’s lower mountain foothills, above the hustle of the inner city. The dark nights are punctuated by the distant sparkly lights of neighbor’s homes and occasional coyote howls. There’s plenty of room to park, and you might want to take a stroll or jog through the neighborhood’s meandering streets and gentle hills. For a more extensive look at Tucson’s magnificent mountains and desert, explore nearby Sabino Canyon with its meandering mountain stream or the eastside Saguaro National Monument with its towering cacti.
A Whole Foods grocery store is located about a mile away, with several shopping centers and restaurants close by as well. Your hosts are happy to make recommendations.
Make yourself at home to cook, BBQ outside, do laundry, watch a movie in the living room or surf the Internet. The house is yours.
Interaction with Guests
Robert and Rafaela work as consultants and typically are in the office on the west side of the house ... or out somewhere. You are welcome to contact them in person or by phone or text anytime. Otherwise they leave you to your own enjoyment.
Your surroundings are in the desert on a quiet street, yet still close to "civilization." The neighborhood is very safe and laid back.
Because this property is away from the busy part of the city, public transportation is not close by. You definitely need a vehicle to get around. Alternatively fee-based shuttles or taxis are available as well.
House rules are pretty straightforward ... enjoy with common courtesy. I don't allow loud or large parties that might disturb neighbors, or illegal substances. The entire property is strictly NON-SMOKING.
Robert. and Rafaela are gracious hosts. We received adequate information that allowed us to explore Tucson and use the house. We felt free to move around the house. The bedroom was comfortable, everything in the house was clean. We loved the Keurig machine and french press that utilized Robert's personally roasted beans. Most of all we truly enjoyed the outdoor area on this property. Its views of the Catalina Foothills and gorgeous foliage make it agreat spot to dine, meditate or simply chill.
Clean, comfortable home, great location. Hosts friendly and accommodating and able to provide insights into local restaurants and attractions.
Robert is very friendly and opened his home to us as if we were old friends. His home is relaxing and the environment is lovely and peaceful. He offered us his own home roasted coffee which was excellent! Close to nature and great restaurants.
Loved our stay with Robert and Rafaela. They are both mellow and easy going and made us feel very comfortable in their home. The accommodations were comfortable, everything was clean and tidy, and the house and grounds were absolutely gorgeous. Great location if you want convenient access to beautiful hiking and biking. You may be sharing a wing of the house with another guest or two so those wanting privacy may want to look elsewhere, but meeting a nice couple from Canada was a bonus for us.
This was the perfect place to stay, near the Catalina mountains, Sabino Canyon and hiking trails, yet close enough to UofA and Tucson activities in town as well. The hosts Robert and Rafaella were very friendly, and helpful, offered assistance when needed and made the guests feel welcome and cared for. The home is large enough to have private space even if others are there on the patio or in one of the living/sitting/dining areas. The nice desert surroundings and neighborhood felt safe and peaceful. Very quiet at night, perfect for a light sleeper as myself. I hope to return again!
A sunny, warm, welcoming home to stay in. Our hosts were hospitable, yet plenty of privacy was available. Set in a lovely neighborhood with fantastic views.
Robert was very accurate and prompt in communication. Check in and out was flexible, which was very helpful in my case. Both Roberto and Rafaela were excellent hosts. I spend 17 days in their beautiful well furnished home . The home is in a very nice residential neighborhood. I often used the patio with great views on the mountains both as my office and/or dining room.
