Interaction with guests

I am always here to greet you when you arrive and often available for questions about Tucson or places to eat. Sometimes, when she is not travelling (which is most of the year), Jutta is in the second guest room. She is a serious writer, poet, speaker of many languages, and respectful of other guests.

The paintings in the living room and in the guest room are my creations and most are for sale to loving forever homes. You can ask me for a price list if one is calling to you.

This was our third stay at Gail's and we continue to enjoy her warm hospitality and comfortable accomodations.

I just stayed five nights at Gail's place. She's a warm, artistic person, and she was a gracious host. The private room has its own bathroom and is on the opposite side of the house as the master bedroom. The space is roomy and clean, and the bed is exceptionally comfortable. Gail's house is in a nice neighborhood, which is close to the UofA, and provides easy access to most things in Tucson. I'm happy to recommend Gail's place to others.

We booked the morning of our first night. Gail was very accommodating with timely communication regarding check in. She welcomed us with tea and snacks and information regarding the Tucson area. The room was great, spacious, clean, comfortable. We explored the Tucson area and her home was located in a neighborhood that was very accessible to main thoroughfares that could expedite getting around and out of town. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

I was at Gail's place for 3 nights and had a great stay. The place was just as described and Gail was lovely. She was very responsive and made the whole process very simple. The bedroom and bathroom are bery comfortable and clean. Gail put out some snacks in the bedroom which were great for breakfast and she allowed me to put some leftovers in the fridge. We had great conversations at the end of the day and I felt very comfortable and safe staying there alone. I would definitely stay here again during my next visit to Tucson.

Gail's place was comfortable and in a great location. The neighborhood was safe and it was nice to be in a quiet neighborhood, but still close to all the essentials like Whole Foods and other restaurants. Much more comfy than a hotel. Would recommend to others.

Hi there...

Here I am with one of my recent paintings.. Many people find my paintings to be aboriginal in nature. I'm not sure which tribe I am channeling but I have been painting for the last twenty years.

Prior to relocating to Tucson, I lived in Northern New Mexico and facilitated painting for children on the Navajo Reservation near the four corners.

I'll add more about me later...I want to get this on the site so I can meet you as soon as possible. I think you'll like it relaxed and informal.
