About this listing
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, 15 minutes from University.
Coming for the Gem Show, or a snowbird escaping the cold? Beautifully renovated vintage Airstream trailor, with it's own private patio and garden offers privacy in the center of Tucson. This early 60's Airstream has a shower, toilet, fridge, sink, coffee service, hotplate, toaster oven, and a DVD player (with movies). There's Wifi in the outdoor kitchen/ patio area although it's not always accessible in the trailer. There's a friendly wifi cafe less than a block away, and we also have an outdoor kitchen complete with barbeque.
The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Around the corner is a WIFI Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, Italian restaurant, American breakfast cafe, Bakery, Pizza parlor, a Tiki Bar, and of course a convenience store. Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes away.
I have a big yard on a quiet street, and the Airstream is tucked in the back, offering great privacy - but, this is central Tucson. There are the occasional sounds of dogs, traffic, sometimes the sounds of children playing.
If you smoke you MUST smoke outside in one of the patios.
I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and I'm very interested in sustainability. I require a profile from guests, and will not rent to people who won't tell me something about themselves.
Tucson is a great place in the winter, and beautiful at any time of the year!
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!
The neighborhood is convenient and central - not far from the University, downtown, shopping and restaurants, and Reid Park for bike riding, the Zoo, etc.
Buses up and down Broadway are literally around the block.
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."
We request guests respect others needs for quiet, and if you are a smoker, please smoke outside (ashtrays are provided). If using the kitchen, please clean up after yourself, and return dishes to cabinets, etc. The Kitties are very friendly, so you must be a cat lover!
