About this listing

Charming 1965 vintage restored Airstream trailer with its own private garden and courtyard in back of property for privacy. Cook in the trailer, or use the outdoor patio and kitchen, wifi in the patio, cafes, buses. Quiet and cozy! Weekly and long term (30+ days) rates. A "tiny house" in the middle of Tucson.

The space

Beautifully renovated vintage Airstream trailor, with it's own private patio and garden offers cozy privacy in the center of Tucson. This early 60's Airstream has a shower, toilet, fridge, sink, coffee service, hotplate, toaster oven and other appliances, and a DVD player. There's Wifi in the outdoor kitchen/ patio area although it's not always accessible in the trailer, and also a microwave. There's a friendly wifi cafe less than a block away, and we also have a barbeque.

I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and my work is found throughout my house, a personal gallery. I am building a new studio where I will teach occasional art workshops, and I love when fellow Creatives come to "join the conversation". Groups may inquire for artist and writer retreats. I'm very interested in green technology, and in the winter a vegetable garden is available to guests. I'm a vegetarian (although you don't need to be).

The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Three major hospitals are also 15 minutes away. Around the corner is a Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, a health food Chinese restaurant, American breakfast cafe, bakery, and of course a convenience store. Sprouts market is 10 minutes away. Buses to downtown are a block away, and beautiful Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes drive.

Please smoke outside if you're a smoker. I have a big yard on a quiet street that offers great privacy, but this is central Tucson and not pristine desert. There are the occasional sounds of dogs, traffic, sometimes the sounds of children playing.

Please provide a profile or tell me something about yourself. Generally I cannot accept same day reservations.

Guest access

Private patio, "sun deck" chair, cooking in the trailer and the use of an outdoor kitchen and dining area by the house as well. Wifi is also easily available in the patio.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy talks, but my experience is that people tend to want privacy, or they are busy with a schedule. I'm always happy to share information, and a cup of tea or coffee!

Other things to note

Many people ask what's fun to do, and I always say "Hike up Sabino Canyon, drive up Mount Lemmon, visit the Sonoran Desert Museum, watch the sun set at Gate's Pass, and go to Club Congress downtown if you like to dance and nightclub."

The Airstream was clean, private, and comfortable. The shower, toilet and AC worked perfectly. Lauren was verg hospitable and her kitties were super adorable.

This was truly a magical place to stay- I wish I had had more time and if I'm ever back in Tucson I'll definitely return. The trailer was beautiful and cozy, and the entire yard and garden was really peaceful and charming. Lauren was very welcoming and communicative.

This little airstream is a gem! The perfect private crash pad if you're in Tucson by yourself. Just a few things you should know: - you'll definitely want to have a car if you're staying here and intend to be hanging out around downtown Tucson or the foothills. - bring a spare blanket if you're a cold sleeper; it does get chilly even with the spare doona AND the provided doona. - bring earplugs and an eye mask if you're a light sleeper, as it gets very bright very early in the warmer months in this trailer. It is also located underneath a tree, and some mornings the sound of leaves or buds or something falling off the tree and onto the trailer woke me up. - internet is slow and the telly emits a high-pitched ringing sound, not a big deal but just don't expect either to be useful. All in all a great place for the prepared! Nothing really wrong with the above as it's all to be expected from a caravan in a suburban backyard. No regrets, since I came with all the sleeping stuff I needed!

Both the tiny house and the Airstream were perfect and met my needs and expectations perfectly. I first stayed in the tiny house for a training block in tucson with my teammate and the tiny house was perfect. You have to walk outside to access the bathroom and shower but I didn't mind this at all. The bathroom and shower were very clean and well stocked with supplies and towels. I actually used the outdoor shower as well and although it was sort of uncomfortable at first I really enjoyed it after the initial adjustment. I love what Lauren has created at her ABB location. It's a really nice getaway in the middle of a busy city. So, the tiny house was perfect. I also stayed in the Airstream as well which was also perfect for my stay. The Airstream is a 60s or 70s model so be ready for that but it is in great condition with a nicely functioning shower and toilet. the bed was very comfortable and the space outside of the Airstream was very peaceful. Also, Crave coffee bar is about a 4min walk from Lauren's ABB with Mongolian BBQ also close by. When I return to TUC later this season I def plan to book Lauren's aBB. I really enjoyed chatting with Lauren in passing.

Lauren User ProfileLauren is a superhost.

I'm a professional artist specializing in masks and community arts. I'm 63, love conversation and creativity. I'm a vegetarian, concerned with the environment, and have traveled internationally. I had so many good experiences with B&B's in the British Isles and Europe, where it is very traditional for families to open their homes, that I decided to try it myself. I had the same good experiences when I travelled in Indonesia, and stayed at "home stays".

Because there's a great wifi cafe around the corner, I no longer cook breakfast, but I do enjoy creating a bright, colorful, serene space for the women who come to visit, and am always happy to share what I know about Tucson and the Southwest. I love Arizona, especially its warm, sunny winters.

Renovating the 1962 Airstream trailor in the back yard, and creating a patio for it, has been my latest "art project"..........I love making things old new and inviting.
