A quaint guesthouse in a beautiful backyard setting! High ceilings - lots of light in the main room - nice and cozy in the bedroom. Fits two and always ok with extra people and pets. Solar powered. 1/2 mile from River Path and 15 mins to dtown.
The guest house is tastefully decorated and has all the feelings of a small home. The backyard is a real treat at night when the lights come on! If you need access to laundry - not a problem. There is little I won't do to help improve your stay and always welcome suggestions.
There is a realtor's lock box on the side gate up the driveway, I will give you the code prior to your arrival..
Interaction with Guests
I live in the front house and am a social person! But also can be pretty busy so if you need anything please let me know and I'll respond as immediately as I can :)
The house is located about a 1/2 mile from the River Road Path. Otherwise, most things are driving distance.
Driving and biking are the best methods to get around from my house to local places of interest.
Other Things to Note
I have a greyhound rescue who has access to the main house and backyard. He is very good with other dogs, cats and children over 10.
I prefer that guests do not smoke while staying at the guest house. sorry and thanks for understanding.
Chris and his lovely guesthouse were wonderful! We loved his doggie, Harley, too! We would gladly stay again!
This was our second time staying at this guesthouse. We stayed for 12 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It feels like home away from home. This trip we brought our dog and he got along great with Chris's dog, Harley. Chis is a very gracious host and provided us with helpful information when we were experiencing car problems. We spent a lot of time in the backyard and it truly is a sanctuary. I was able to do yoga on the patio with my yoga mat and Kindle Fire. The WiFi on the property works great! We will be back again in 2016.
What a great find!!
First of all, Chris was so sweet, friendly and helpful. He welcomed us on the day we arrived and made us feel right at home. It seemed like we already had a friend in Tucson. He was always available, and he helped us in any way we needed, whether it be related to the guest house or related to Tucson.
The guest house itself is awesome. It is spacious yet cozy, and we felt so at home. The property is super cool too, with a fire ring and tons of comfy lounging. Both were clean and in great condition.
When we come back to Tucson, there is no doubt we will staying at Chris' guest house!!
My husband, kitty and I stayed in Chris’s casita over Christmas weekend. We enjoyed the privacy the casita provided, as it is in the backyard of the main house, but completely separate. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet our host Chris during our stay, as he was out of town, but Chris maintained close contact with us through email and text to make sure we were comfortable.
The guest house was well-stocked with all the kitchen items we needed to prepare meals. There was even some community food in the pantry and refrigerator that was available for us to use. The living room and bedroom were tastefully decorated and made us feel at home. The wifi connection was fast and reliable. We liked the fact the casita is pet friendly.
The minor inconvenience we had was with the water heater in the shower. We had hot water for about 6 min which is a little short during winter days for mainly me. Chris was kind enough to let me use the bathroom in the main house. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again if we ever travel to Tucson.
Although we ended up having to cancel our trip, and therefore our reservation as well, wanted to say that dealing with Chris was very easy. He was responsive, helpful and very kind. Based on interaction with Chris alone, would most definitely try to stay at his place once again in Tucson. I give a 5 star review based on dealings with Chris alone...
I had a great experience. The backyard is beautiful. The guest house is clean and cozy. Everything was as advertised. Chris was easy to coordinate with and very flexible. Would recommend to annyone.
It was the perfect spot for us! We were looking for a chill getaway where we could enjoy some hiking and cycling and Chris' place was everything we could have asked for! The kitchen was sufficient for us to cook all our meals, the space was eclectic and cozy and Chris' dog was great with our pup! Chris even brought us coffee in the morning. What more could you ask for? This will always be our first choice for a Tucson stay!
For the last 12 years - I have been completing my vision of the house, guest house and backyard. Finally ready to start hosting the eclectic travelers of the world. Looking forward to hosting and meeting new people.
