Interaction with Guests
I would like to interact only as much as my guests would feel comfortable. I have traveled quite a bit and have met people along the way who I will always remain friends. I love meeting new people but will always respect my guests' privacy.
The house is in Barrio Santa Rosa, one of the first Tucson neighborhoods and is surrounded by a variety of historic architecture. There is a large park just a few block away as well as coffee shops, a new brunch cafe that features locally grown food and a children's museum. It is a fifteen minute walk to downtown and Fourth Avenue. It is also just a few blocks from the Santa Cruz river path, which almost circumferences the city.
This is an ideal place if one likes to walk or cycle. If you prefer public transportation, a stop is just two blocks away.
Other Things to Note
I live with my son who is a senior in high school (and never around on the weekends,) our two dogs, two cats, some hens, and garden. The entrance to the add-on where the room not quite finished (paint,) but the room is nice, clean and cozy.
We love life and people and are respectful and expect the same. We love folks who are independent, respect the earth and its beings. Please smoke only outside with the doors closed.
Kara was accommodating for our late arrival. Her son was nice to take us to get some pizza as places weren't open late for delivery. The room was very nice and balcony is a plus.
Kara is an excellent host and the room is beautiful, clean, super-comfy and there's a wonderful rooftop deck where one can read, write and relax. It's walking distance from downtown and all the closest restaurants are great. I was travelling on business and wanted a convenient place to stay. Every day of my 5 day visit was comfy and I have absolutely only positive things to say of my experience. Whenever I return to Tucson I plan to check first if Kara has this room to rent.
Kara was a wonderful host and very accomidating. I loved my sunrise and sunset views. Very cozy and private.
Kara is a great hostess! She is very welcoming, relaxed, and has a great sense of humor. Her son is very nice, as well. The house is a newly-constructed old-style house with a colorful interior in a quiet neighborhood. It is easily accessible from the 10. Everything was just as it is described on the website. I will definitely look her up should I pass through Tucson again!
Awesome location! Nice walk to downtown. Kara was very helpful with directions and places to go. Felt at home in my room and enjoyed playing with her many pets! So cute! Thank you for everything!
I had a great stay with Kara in early April. I had no car and the location was wonderful for walking to downtown Tucson. I also walked to The Loop bike trail along the Santa Cruz.
The room is spacious with a great patio where I watched the sunrise. I loved the animals—dogs cats & chickens!
