The Space

Our guest house is a two bedroom, roomy fully air conditioned home and sits in the heart of the historic Sam Hughes Neighborhood just 1 block from the U of A. Our guest house has high vaulted ceilings, unique and comfortable furnishings and is able to accommodate 4 adults or a family quite nicely. I can place a small pak & play in a bedroom for a fifth person, but 5 normal size people doesn't work unless you really want to be close. We have a secured gated courtyard for bike storage, two parking spaces, full size kitchen with all needed appliances including microwave, plate settings, pots/pans and coffee maker. The living space has bar seating, a flat screen TV, Direct TV, WiFi , ceiling fans and a love seat and two chairs. We have provided a washer,dryer,iron/board & blow dryer for your convenience and the courtyard features a patio grill for sunset BBQ's. One bedroom is furnished with two comfy twin beds, luxury sheets and plenty of closet space. The tastefully decorated second bedroom has a brand new beauty rest king bed with luxury bedding and a large closet. The full size bathroom has both a shower and tub for your convenience along with luxurious towels and hand-made soaps to make your stay extra special! The U of A is just one block away, with the University Medical Center across the street. A Whole foods Market and a Safeway are within a mile, along with Reid Park (Tucson's largest park with two 18-hole public golf courses, Reid Park Zoo, Randolph Tennis Complex, Aquatic Center, and a 6 mile tree lined bike/walking path). We sit 3 blocks from the lush and very active Himmel Park and just a short walk to our favorite local Rincon Market/Deli and Bob Dobb's Pub on game days. The street car "link" route is 1 block from our door at Speedway and Campbell and an easy route to the vintage and unique shops of Fourth Ave., University Ave., museums, wonderful eateries, theaters and more. I can assist you with any directions and reservations if needed. Please understand that weekly and monthly pricing is for all months except the Gem Show Jan. 19 thru Feb. 18. This rate is $850 for a week and $3000 for the 31 days, which is about $95 a night for a two bedroom house/peak time. The nightly rate is $150 during Gem Show. I look forward to hosting you.

Guest Access

Whole house. Two parking spaces at the rear of the house. Alley access & gated courtyard. Please be aware that the houses are close and that families and professionals live/sleep within hearing distance of the patio. Please be respectful of music and loud conversations at night. Take it inside at 10ish on weekdays and Midnight on weekends. Happy neighbors let me stay hosting my Airbnb.

Interaction with Guests

I or my assistant, Terry like to check in our guest and give them a quick tour & layout of the house. Answer any questions about restaurants , markets & neighborhood. I'll touch base by txt within a day or two, mostly make myself available if questions, but guest privacy is very important to me. I want my guest to feel at home in my home.

The Neighborhood

This is a historical neighborhood that most homes were built in the 1920s. Very bike friendly, walking tree lined streets & across the street from the U of A. I provide two private parking spaces in the alley. Street parking requires a pass.

Getting Around

House sits one block from city bus line. Also, we are excited to be located 1 block from the "Link" , which is our new street car that takes guest downtown for $4 a day or $1.50 each way.

Other Things to Note

The Desert Poppy guesthouse is smoke free inside. The patio is available with the doors shut and proper disposal of the materials. No drugs on property.

House Rules

We are so glad you have chosen the Desert Poppy Inn/Guest House. We loved raising our children in Sam Hughes and know you will get to appreciate the local hot spots, markets, U of A events, and ultimate charm of our sweet neighborhood. We ask that you make yourself at home, enjoy cooking a meal for your family and treat our little get-away as "your" vacation home in the desert. I do have two bikes available for you to cruz the neighborhood, along with a Pack N Play if you bring your little one. We do consider children people, so kids over the age of one years old are guest. There are beds for four individuals, so if there are more than four in your party, a $25 fee per night will be added. A couple with a small child is considered 3 guest. Sorry that we can not accommodate pets, and it is a smoke free/ E smoke free home. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need reservations to a restaurant or directions to a local hidden trail.
