Welcome to Tucson. If this ad describes what you are looking for please email me. I hope you enjoy the wonderful desert here and the unique flavor Tucson has to offer.
I am looking for renters who have a fun loving nature and are conscious of their carbon footprint. If you have a communal spirit but also like your privacy my home may be a good place for you to stay. I welcome all lifestyles and ethnic backgrounds. What is important to me is that you can communicate with my dog and understand that animals, like humans, can have their own quirky behavior. She loves people but barks at you excitedly when you come home and sometimes (as she is 84 human years old) barks again when she forgets you were already home. Once you greet her again she is back to loving you. Saying a hello, petting her and telling her to go get her toy also works to minimize the barking.
I have an unattached room in the privately fenced back yard available. The room is completely furnished and has air conditioning. Use of the living room, dining room , kitchen, bathroom, and yoga/exercise room comes with the room rental. This is a one bathroom home with an additional outdoor composting toilet, outdoor shower outdoor stove, and outdoor bath tub. This is a smoke free.and TV free home. We watch movies and other shows on our computers (WI FI is included). Essentially this ensures a quiet atmosphere for everyone. However, this doesn't preclude the social dinner when it suits you. I am a very young 60 yrs of age woman and I enjoy good wine, good food and good friends.
The back yard is totally private and has a wonderful soft and calming energy. The bear claw bath tub tips the scale for a relaxing and stress free evening. I also offer spiritual and healing retreats and that information can be requested if interested.
This is an environmentally friendly home with cisterns to collect rainwater for plant watering. Systems are in place for the outdoor washer, shower and bath tub to feed the trees and plants, thus all natural organic products are used in the outdoor systems. These products are provided for your use while at my home. There is a solar hot water heater with a backup 'on demand' system which means there are times that the system needs to be switched over (just a matter of turning 2 valves).
There is a superb courtyard with unique shops, excellent cuisine and live music 6 nights a week. It is 5 blocks away from my home. Music ends at 10pm as it is located in a residential district. It is called Monteray Court.
Add $5 per night for double occupancy
No cigarette smokers please.
Check in times are between 2pm and 7pm unless previously agreed upon times are arranged. I will only extend the check in by 2 hours.
Bus transportation is 3 blocks away. It takes 1 bus to go to 4th Ave or downtown. From downtown you can pretty much get anywhere in the city on the 2nd bus. Current cost is $1.50 with free transfer or a $3.50 unlimited day pass.
Airbnb Policies I try to get around
They block phone numbers and websites so don't bother to try sending them. This I understand because they are the middle man collecting the money. However, it is very hard to find their own phone number so you can call to get live help. Unfortunately they even block out their own phone number when I try to spell it out for you. I do not require a photo to book with me but I know airbnb is pushing for this.
Also, the cancellation policy is strict but in reality I will refund any nights that I am able to book to someone else prior to your booked arrival date should you need to cancel.
Guests have access to the entire home excluding my bedroom and back mud room. Guest enter and leave through the front door and are required to lock it at night.
Easy access to bus system. Located 3 to 3.5 miles from historic 4th Avenue, downtown and the U of A. Easy bicycling to these places as well. Bus is $1.50 with free transfers. Bicycle rental from me is $3 per day. You are required to fix any flats you get.
Marcy's outdoor shower is reason enough to stay with her, but she is also a responsive and organized host and the room worked out great. I appreciated the bathrobe available as well as both heater and AC.
I loved staying in Marcy's cute, quite, comfy, cottage-like bedroom in her desert oasis backyard!! I had a wonderful soak in the outdoor bathtub under a beautiful orange tree followed by one of the best massages I have ever had (from Marcy)!! :)
I look forward to staying with her again when I come back to Tucson - this room was way better than any hotel you could ever get for the price! Thanks again Marcy! :)
Lovely room for a bargain on Valentine's Day and during the gem show! Marcy was very sweet as was her dog, June. If I had the time, I would have totally had a bath in the backyard! I would definitely stay again!
Thank you for hosting, Marcy! Kimione and I had a great time resting and relaxing in your backyard oasis during the Gem and Jam! More Cheer, Less Chit! Love to ya and Juna!
My stay with Marcy was comfortable and convenient. Not far from the freeway or downtown. She is a gracious host with an effortless way to put you at ease. The unattached room was very cozy, comfortable and a great deal. It was warm during the cool snap and has it's own air conditioner. There is also a desk, chair, and dresser in your room. Towels and a robe were provided. There is a nice spread of teas/coffees and other goodies set out by the large dining room table. The yard has an outdoor shower that I did not get to use but looked like it would be great on a sunny morning or to cool down after a hot day. The full kitchen and bathroom are clean & well appointed.
I loved that this is an environmentally conscious home with a naturally peaceful and healing vibe. I was passing through Tucson on the way to Sedona for a yoga festival and hit the gem show while there. I had the best mix of privacy and interaction with Marcy. Her doggy is a sweetie especially after a greeting biscuit! This will be my spot for my next visit to Tucson for sure! Thanks Marcy!
This is a nice, clean little space. The backyard is lovely. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The space heater was helpful at night. Staying in the detached house was a little challenging because I had to go into the house to use the bathroom. But I understood that when I rented the place. Marcy was pleasant and provided what I needed. The price is certainly right.
Marcy is a very welcoming host. She was kind enough to take us on last moments notice. The room served it's purpose for a solid sleep. The shed comes equipped with a lock from the inside. Safety is always a concern when traveling and this made us feel secure. The outdoor shower was one of the highlights of our long weekend getaway! The temps were in the 20's and the water was hot enough to keep us plenty toasty. Best of all, Marcy caters to what I feel is the true culture of Air B&B, which is a solid valuable experience for the money.
Marcy was super accommodating when my travels found me arriving much later than planned! She was a lovely host and was very sweet to my little doggie, Bleu! A peaceful and comfortable stay.
Great room! Excellent host. I'll be back!
Centrally located, and close to downtown and many other attractions.
A good base to explore the area.
