The space
This is a recently enlarged and totally refurbished very large bedroom/bathroom featuring it's own private entrance on the side of the main house and sliding glass doors that give access to a large desert garden with swimming pool and outdoor dining area.
This cozy room has it's own cooling/heating, ceiling fan, bamboo wood flooring, wet bar with fridge, microwave oven and coffee maker and a flat screen tv. Wireless internet is available. There is a large walk-in closet and plenty of storage for all your luggage and personal belongings. The bed is a very comfortable Queen size.
I like to spoil all my guests with luxurious quality sheets and towels and make sure basic toiletries and a hair dryer are available.
Coffee, tea, fresh fruit and yoghurt are provided and I keep the fridge stocked with some cold water and juices.
I have a portable baby crib with bedding and a highchair available for anyone traveling with a baby or toddler.
The house is situated in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains with wonderful views, surrounded by desert and is extremely quiet. The only sound may occasionally be the coyotes at night and always the desert birds in the morning.
Close by you'll have access to great shopping and many excellent restaurants. The University of Arizona is an easy 6 mile drive away and yet there are also a lot of hiking trailheads very close by.

Guest access
Back yard with comfortable seating to sit and relax or have your meals outside. There is an electric Weber barbecue available.
Pool is accessible to guests (not heated) and extra pool towels are provided.

Where you’ll be

Tucson, Arizona, United States

I love my neighborhood and have lived here for more than 20 years. I love to walk here and never tire of it.
It's spacious and quiet with beautiful homes in a natural desert setting, yet close to lots of amenities. Good shops, cinemas, hiking trails and a great variety of excellent restaurants.

I was born and raised in the Netherlands, but I've lived in Tucson, AZ for 30 years and love it. I have traveled extensively and have lived and worked in 6 different countries. I retired 3 years ago from my job as an Oncology nurse. I am a mother of 2 adult sons and happy and proud grandmother of 2 beautiful granddaughters. Besides traveling my hobbies are hiking, tennis, swimming, yoga, pottery and making jewelry. I love to cook and entertain. I also belong to a Women's Chorus. In the winter I love to get away to go skiing with family and/or friends.
