Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they desire.
It's feeling of quiet, peaceful remoteness, yet total convenience to anywhere in Tucson because of its close proximity to I-10.
There is public transit, buses and trolley, in central Tucson. There are car rentals, cabs, uber and lift available.
Other Things to Note
I am very near two trailheads, one hiking, one hiking and biking.
This is a quiet peaceful home. I don't go to bed as early as the chickens do, which is when the sun sets but I am an early to bedder and early riser. If you plan to be out past 10pm I will give you a key to get in.You may use my outdoor bbq grill and indoor or outdoor table for dining if you clean up after yourself. Check in is 3pm to 8pm. Check out is by noon. A week or longer stay will incur a $45 cleaning fee. No pets, although I do have a dog. No indoor smoking. No fire pit or outdoor fireplace use if there is any wind whatsoever. Please squeegie the glass shower walls after each use. And above all else- relax and enjoy!
I had a great stay at Kate's place while in town for a business trip. The location was on the edge of town which made it a terrific spot for being in the desert. Her home is beautifully decorated with some of her own artwork as well as others....like getting a small art gallery as part of your stay. The pool was great to relax in and she has a gentle dog that is a bonus. If you're looking for a great spot in Tucson, Kate's place is the spot to stay.....She was a great host.
Kate was a very welcoming host, and her home was very nice. I felt very comfortable during my stay at her home. This was my first AirBNB stay, and it has definitely encouraged me to pursue this avenue for lodging in the future. Thank you, Kate, for making it a wonderful stay in Tucson!
Wonderful host. Kate was warm and welcoming. Her desert oasis is a must for any Tucson visitor.
What a fantastic getaway we had at Kate's beautiful home. The beds are cozy and comfy, the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting, her dogs are the two happiest dogs we have ever seen- well behaved, happy to see you when you return, and yet, very quite! We loved the morning chats out by the pool as we had breakfast- Kate is beyond beautiful, easy to talk with and very respectful of the guests space. Thank you, Kate, we are hoping to see you again very soon.
What a great place to be. Thanks Kate for your hospitality, the nice dinners we've had together and the things we shared. It's a real oase you created. With this beautiful view on the mountains.
Kate was not only a wonderful host with a lovely home and view, she intuitively knew what I was needing. I was able to both relax and enjoy the amazing view from the hammock, while at the same time, take care of some much needed business matters. This is a "must love dogs" place and if you do, you will be given some lovely attention. After being on the road for three long years, I can honestly say that staying at Kate's was a beautiful experience on so many levels. Thank you Kate for sharing your home and yourself with so many!

About the Host, Kate
I love my little sustainable farm, EIEIO; come share it with me for a night, a week, a month...Or take the ENTIRE HOME for a week or two of the gem show Jan. 31-Feb. 15, 2015. Newly Renovated. inside to match new eco-friendly structural systems outside. Peaceful place and pace suits my temperament. And yours? Sit outside and watch the sunset turn the mts..pink, time to have a drink. If the wind isn't blowing, light a fire in the fire pit. Enjoy!
