La Casa Del Artista is a stunning Territorial home set at the base of the Saguaro National Park in West Tucson. This is the place to find peace and natural beauty in the Sonora desert. This eclectic 1980 vintage home was originally run as a successful bed and breakfast in the early 90’s. Host, Debbie Gallerani has lovingly enhanced its charm and added artistic character to enchant each guest during their stay. A delicious continental breakfast is available each morning to start out your day.

The space
Welcome to my home, where you will find an invitation to enjoy the beauty of creation. I hope that you take time to do some creating of your own, whether it be writing, drawing, painting, meditation or just relaxing by the salt water pool or desert garden.

The Sundance Room:
Relax and kick off your boots in your private guest room. Accented in deep browns and terra cotta hues, you will immediately be enamored with the rich Western hacienda decor. Adobe carved book selves, wood beamed ceilings and a candle filled terra cotta Chiminia are some of the charming features in this space. A french door opens to your own patio that look out to the pool and mountains. The Sundance room has a wet bar with a Senseo gourmet coffee maker, specialty coffees, and a mini-fridge. The room has it's own bathroom, stocked with hair dryer, clothes steamer, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and soft towels.

The living room, dining room and the library, filled with vintage books and art are open for your enjoyment. Yes, you can dive in my large swimming pool! It is deep enough! Relax in the Jacuzzi or grill up a Bar-B-Que dinner in the fun and festive outdoor Cantina! The front yard sunset patio is an enchanting spot to watch the magical Sonora sunsets. There are many seating areas around the yard offering different moods for your senses.

I am happy to serve a continental breakfast every morning. You're welcome to eat in the formal dining room, the cozy library, or any of the outdoor seating areas around the home.

Where you’ll be

Tucson, Arizona, United States

There are a few unique and special places to visit close by La Casa Del Artista. Check out the "Cat Mountain Station", 5 minutes away off of Kinney road for a home-cooked breakfast or lunch at the "Coyote Pause" cafe. There are also 4 amazing art galleries there, "The Cactus Wren Artisans", which features my artwork as well as 69 other master artisans. The Buffalo Trading Post is a treat for those seeking vintage finds. Up the street is "Old Tucson" an old movie studio that was a set for over 300 Western films! Further up the road is the spectacular Sonoran Desert Museum, a must visit! Casino Del Sol is only 8 minutes away for those attending conventions or gem show.

Hello! I am a Desert Bohemian Artist, loving the beauty and tranquility of West Tucson, AZ. Originally from Palm Springs, CA, my love for the Desert has never waned. I have traveled all over the U.S., some Mexico destinations, and Europe. Different cultures and people fascinate me, which is perfect for running an Airbnb. So far I am crazy about this business. My guests have been amazing and sharing my house for travelers has been nothing short of a blessing. My artistic passions range from Cartooning to illustration, graphic design to acrylic painting, and sculpture. My work has been shown in several galleries in California, Taos, N.M. and currently in Tucson, Scottsdale and Tubac, AZ. There are paintings and sculptures in my home for you to enjoy. I have 3 amazing adult daughters, and 3 cats, Toby, Romeo and Nami. My life verse: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Philippians 4:13
