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 rates (no occupancy taxes in stays over 30 days) . A vintage "tiny house" in the middle of Tucson for "glamping".

The space

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". 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 also teach a fun ONE DAY WORKSHOP on casting and clay portraiture with air dry clay every 2nd Saturday of the month at my on-site Circle Studio. It only costs $50.00 - if interested, guests are entirely welcome to join the class!

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."

Great garden and Lauren is delightful. I would stay here again with the proviso that it is utilitarian and absolutely a one person experience only.

Lauren is very friendly and full of good advice. The place was nice and peaceful and the plants in the yard are well taken care of. Like a nice Oasis in the middle of Tucson!

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!

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.
