We stay in the adjacent studio when we have guests.
Close to the U of A and 4th Avenue. We can walk or bike just about everywhere. We have a great neighborhood association and we really like the mix of people in the neighborhood.

This is a quiet neighborhood with families. We kindly ask our guests to keep noise to a minimum.
Lawrence was a great host. He responded to questions quickly and helped me work out a small issue quite easily. Very responsive and helpful. His instructions and description of the house are very good and cover everything you need to know to stay at his place.
We found the house to be a great place to stay! It matched our needs very well. The house is cool and comfortable, and the back porch / garden are wonderful, both for working and relaxing. It's especially nice to lay out on the couch at night for reading. (And you can see an occasional humming bird!) A nice range of restaurants and shops are within walking distance, as is the University. When we did rent a car, parking situation was excellent.
We would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Lawrence!
Great place--super central location, spotless, stylish, and with really nice outdoor space. Hope to stay there again next spring.
Excellent place to stay in a great quiet neighborhood. The location made for quick trips to downtown and the 4th Avenue strip. The kitchen was great and easy to use, the back patio and outdoor shower were excellent perks of the house as well.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lawrence's home in Tucson...
- Lawrence provided great communication (including hiking suggestions)
- Immaculate and very hip home!
- Nice location
We were super comfortable and we'd go back in a heartbeat.
My family and I had a fantastic time during during our stay. Staying at the house was much more pleasant than any hotel would have been. Between the great location and the fantastic outdoor shower what's not to like.
It is important to me that a host is responsive to email questions. Lawrence prior to rental and after rental answered all email communication within 24 hours.
The home that is listed is well laid out. The pictures that were posted were are an accurate representation of the property.
The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, glasses, pots, plates etc. Kitchen equipment is new and in good working order.
Location worked out for us. It is close to a main thoroughfare called Speedway. We had a rental car and therefore easy to get around. We did not use public transportation.
In summary our rental experience was positive.

We had a great time there and we highly recommend Lawrence's place. He was very responsive and welcoming, the place beautiful and super clean. The TV and music system was easy to use and the kitchen fully equipped. A short walk to downtown and 4th avenue were all the bars are. Great place all around and I'll definitely stay there again.
