Vintage travel experience in Downtown Tucson. Close to everything. Very comfortable abode with every amenity.

The space

Available as motel rooms on wheels, but parked in a private back yard in the historic barrio El Hoyo (meaning the hole), our vintage RV's make the perfect getaway! On the edge of tiny downtown Tucson, Arizona, one block south of the Tucson convention center, and one block from the modern street car that connects with the University neighborhood and the west side. Just west of the wishing shrine and Barrio Historico. Charming, convenient, and comfortable, two separate units are available - the National and the Local! There is a romantically cozy full size bed in the rear and an extra bed can be made on the couch in the front . There is a kitchen which includes dishes, stove, sink, and a fridge. Bathroom is very small but efficient with handheld shower and toilet. A newly built large and modern shower is now available in the laundry room for RV guests. Great Wi-fi and cable tv. Heat with thermostat and AC, both of which work great.

Also available in extended a joining yards are "urban cabin in downtown barrio" and "luxury loft apartment in barrio", and "the hideout in barrio viejo" especially if you have a group that needs to spread out. ***PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICING VARIES ACCORDING TO SEASON...WEEKLY AND MONTHLY RATES ARE HIGHER IN THE WINTER MONTHS.

Also note these vehicles are over 50 years old. Be prepared for a vintage travel experience!

It is a very unique experience to live in such a RV. The location is not bad and it is just 5 minutes walk away from the streetcar station. The facilities are very comfortable and relatively convenient to use. In addition, the host, Mary, is super friendly and helpful and she provided me everything I needed.

We really enjoyed our stay in the vintage RV. It's very cute and comfortable for 2 people. The location is very convenient for exploring both in town and outside, and we appreciated the off-street parking.

Maryann is a gracious, responsive, and welcoming host. The RV is wonderfully unique! Everything is as described. There is a clean and well-functioning bathroom in the RV and a larger bathroom with shower across the patio. The spot is quiet and relaxing with a fenced in shady courtyard, outdoor seating, and a bubbling fountain. Walkable to trolley and downtown. I stayed here for two weeks and then on a second trip with my husband booked the RV again. We loved it!

MaryAnn was a wonderful host, we felt very welcome and came & did as we pleased. The vintage RV was clean, comfortable and a pleasure to stay in. We also loved the neighborhood and MaryAnn put together an informative binder of places to check out in the area. So close to the rail/tram too.

We own these 2 antique rv's which are totally drivable and roadworthy because my husband has a dvd distribution business (BrinkDVD), and he bought these 2 thinking he would take his line of dvd's to film festivals throughout the southwest and we did! But there were many breakdowns and sometimes we brought a lot of people in these vehicles like to Marfa, Texas, and another time Austin, Texas, and even to LA, California. But these vehicles needed many repairs and over the years many repairs were made (that one that broke down in LA spent a year there, and one that broke down in New Mexico spent a year there) and you are looking at some very expensively renovated beasts of the road that ended up like beached whales in my yard with my husband far too crabby to take them back out and serve as mechanic; he is on to other dreams.

That's where I come in. My husband is Aries, which corresponds to the head, and I am Pisces, which corresponds to the feet. I finish what he starts! And after looking at them, mostly just one until both of them were driven back into the yard and then there were two. And there they sat unloved, these fine cabins of 1968 comfortability. The RV's have extra long but slightly narrow double beds, fully plumbed toilets on board, complete kitchens, and access to a luxurious shower down the hill. (Combined with a laundry room available to all guests).

They would have liked to have had one of these RV's on the moon! I was compelled to landscape around the beached turquoise whales with white gravel, to make it more light at night so my guests can see. Plus I like the Japanesey look, it integrates well with the our desert.

I had managed a hotel for years, but now I work at home as a bookkeeper for our own businesses. I worked at Hotel Congress in downtown Tucson for 15 years and managed it for 10(left there in Oct 99). And now, I am operating a mini hotel in my backyard and next door. The yards are adjoined by an arch, and if you're in the guesthouse please feel free to enjoy the birds and fountain on the other side. Altogether there are 5 places here on two adjoining lots, and each accommodation has quite a bit of personal space. .

The guesthouse which we call the "the love shack" is a great little guest house with everything you need for an extended stay: tiny kitchen, tiny bathroom, large comfy bed downstairs, and loft bed in a tiny loft upstairs, and HBO. Sometimes people disappear for weeks in the shack.

My husband's business BRINK (creative digital) occupied the two story house in the back of the lot where the trailers are located, but in 2013 he moved to a commercial building about a mile away. So we have turned the old BRINK offices back into residential units, upstairs and down.

There is a large 1000 square foot luxury loft the we lovingly call the High Chaparral (after our favorite TV show of the seventies). It has a great very private upstairs porch, large screen TV, huge tub and shower, full kitchen, and stereo with record player! It's very swank in that pioneer TV way. There is off-street parking behind the building and a private entrance.

The bottom floor unit, which we call The Hideaway, is rocking a 60's pop Italian apartment theme, with extra beds for itinerant rock bands or families with kids. The signature piece of The Hideaway is a vintage Fantasia fiber optic lamp, that beats TV any day of the week, but yes, there is a flatscreen LED, with HBO AND Cinemax AND Showtime AND ESPN.
