Interaction with Guests
I like to greet my guests upon arrival and answer any questions they may have . I live only a couple of blocks away if anything should arise that needs my attention.
Casa Azulita sits on the northern edge of West University neighborhood, oldest established neighborhood association in Arizona- very close to everything. Easy access to all parts of the city, most venues within walking distance. Walk, ride or bike to Downtown, U of A, 4th ave. shopping district, great restaurants, cafes, museums, entertainment.
Great public transportation, modern streetcar is now operating, with stops in close proximity! Parking next to the east side of house. Easy access to Interstate 10, within 15-20 minutes to the airport.
Other Things to Note
This house can accommodate up to 6 adults and one child. There are 2 nice futon pull out couches, a futon chair, and a king size bed for sleeping. Please inquire if interested in hosting more than 4 people...
Prefer to have no shoes on in the house to preserve the hardwood floors. No pets allowed or smoking , besides that, enjoy yourself and have fun! Just be sure to leave the house in good shape, and we'll all be happy!
Debra was a great host and communicated clearly with me before I arrived. Upon arrival, she met me promptly and spent 20 or so minutes explaining the house and the great places in the neighborhood to eat and drink. The house is conveniently located within walking distance to UA and 4th Ave. The house is on a busy street, but with the doors closed and music I didn't notice the traffic noise.
We had a wonderful week in Tucson and Casa Azulita was the perfect home base for us. You can park your car and walk lots of places right from the house. Debra is a great host and is full of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. She even gave us a recommendation for a restaurant in Nogales, Mexico. (We had a great lunch at La Roca.) The house is very comfortable and kitchen is equipped to handle cooking basic meals. Be sure to have breakfast over at her restaurant, Mother Hubbard Cafe. (What a cool selection of waffles!)
For us, the only drawback was the road noise, but coming from a house in the woods of Vermont, we expected that no matter where we stayed.
Many thanks, Debra!
Debra was friendly and helpful. The house was very comfortable -- Classic Tucson! Also extremely conveniently located. Traffic on Speedway was a little loud, but everything else was so nice, that seemed to make up for it. We had a lovely stay.
The little blue house was great. Close to U of A, easy parking, clean and good.
We had a great experience at Casa Azulita. The house was clean, comfortable, and close to the University, shopping and places to eat. We enjoyed doing some cooking in the well equipped kitchen, and having coffee in the morning on the back table. Sleeping accommodations were comfortable for the 3 of us. The Arizona weather was beautiful, and we enjoyed the sunshine and having a comfortable place to stay! We also ate breakfast twice at Debra's restaurant, the Mother Hubbard Cafe, and it was delicious!
We were there for the Tucson Folk Festival, and the Casa Azulita was the perfect place to make our home base:) It was walking distance from the fest, as well as to 4th avenue stores and restaurants. The Speedway location was easy to access from the Interstate, and gave us good access to other necessities (Whole Foods, Walgreens). Her Mother Hubbard's Cafe was a fantastic breakfast joint, also not far from the house! The cozy 1 bedroom housed 3 friends very happily, and allowed us to recharge our batteries before heading out form more music (and heat!). So nice to feel part of Tucson while visiting... we'll definitely be back!
Great place, location and host! A 5 minute drive from about everything, plenty of room for a couple. Noise from ambulance sirens going off all the time can get to you but not the fault of the host.

Hi, I have lived in Tucson since 1987 in West University neighborhood. It is a very vibrant place, lots of fun and exciting things to do all within walking distance. Besides hosting new and interesting people, I am a blown glass artist, co-own a restaurant called Mother Hubbard's-great food!, and a Mom.
I love to swim, practice yoga, river rafting, go for long walks or hikes, and work on new glass pieces when I can. Life is full and fun, especially with my daughter who loves the performing arts.
Being a host has allowed me to meet lots of wonderful people, some of them becoming good friends. I am always happy to share my knowledge of Tucson, my favorite places and anything else that will enhance my guest stay in the ol'Pueblo...
