Check In
  • Debra's cottage was so perfect for my 8.5 day stay in Tucson! It was quaint, warm, cozy, and equipped with all the essentials to make your stay homey and rested. Debra was super welcoming and made it really easy for me to check in when I arrived very late Saturday/early Sunday AM. She lent me a parking pass for my rental car to park on the street, and there was always ample parking in front of the house & cottage. The cottage itself is next to/somewhat behind the main house, where Debra resides, and there is a cute pathway from the front gate to the area where the cottage is. She had two friendly dogs (Sophie & Reina) who kept the porch outside the house & cottage company, it was nice knowing they were there as companions to greet you every morning!

    Inside the cottage was a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, and fridge. The oven was actually out during my stay (I like to buy groceries and do my own cooking when I travel to save $$), and Debra was so accommodating to make up for it that when I brought it to her attention - she sent me home with a homecooked meal & craft beer!! Very kind gesture, and made me feel so welcomed. The bathroom in the cottage has a standup shower (no bathtub), tons of fresh white towels, a vintage hair dryer (which worked pretty well!), and shampoo/conditioner, and soap. The bed was a tiny bit lumpy, but still very comfortable and warm :).

    The walk-in closet was also lovely, and had ample room for me to hang up my clothes for the week, as well as a large dresser. The closet also had extra linens, blankets, and laundry baskets available. An extra plus was that there is a washer/drier and clothing line available at the house, so you can do your laundry during your stay!

    Overall, I would definitely recommend Debra's place and would stay there again the next time I am in town! Thanks for your hospitality Debra!!

  • Debra was a fantastic host during my two week stay (and to my mom for her two-night stopover!). The cottage is very comfortable, even in the formidable Tucson heat. Debra keeps the bathroom and kitchen nicely stocked with all the basics you'll need. The place is well-situated near all the 4th Avenue shopping and feels safe thanks to the three sweet dogs!

  • Debra was a terrific host! She was knowledgeable and friendly. Her recommendations were excellent for everything from hiking to breakfast places to swimming. The table outside the cottage was a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the amazing birds in the backyard.
    The sweet cottage guest house and Debra really enhanced our stay in Tucson.

  • We would stay here again in a minute! Great location,well equipped space (with books and DVDs!), nice overall atmosphere. Debra was great - had lots of good suggestions of where to go, what to see. Her restaurant, Mother Hubbard's, was the best! The place was clean and comfortable.

  • Debra is very attentive and gave some good tips about the area. The cottage was well-equipped.

  • While I ended up staying at another of Deb's places instead of the one listed here, Deb was a wonderful host. She worked with me and was responsive to my (website hidden) much so, I am going back to her guest suite and looking forward to it!

  • My wife and I wanted to have a weekend in Tucson. Debra was a great host: fast communication, friendly hints on spots to check out. Her rental house is very cute, sit s behind her own house four blocks from downtown. Quiet neighborhood, lots of birds chirping. The house stayed cool despite temps near 100. Clean kitchenette turned out to helpful. TV with DVD player and a few DVDs (she has more in the house if you want to borrow one). Close to the shops on 4th. Also close to a great hidden veggie restaurant called The Tasteful Kitchen. Debra also runs a great breakfast joint called Mother Hubbard's located up Stone. Try the green chile. Thanks Debra for being so warm and welcoming on our first trip to Tucson.

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...
