About this listing

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.

Interaction with guests

I love to meet and great my guests personally if at all possible. Getting to know each one and helping them to get the most out of their trip is the fun of being a host!
I' m always available by cell phone for questions or problems.

Other things to note

The room has it's own heating/cooling unit and a ceiling fan.
Use of washer and dryer is available upon request.
Since 2014 all electrical needs are supplied by solar panels.

House Rules
No smoking

Separate key is available. This is an extremely safe neighborhood, but please lock up when you leave.
Since the desert is a dry and somewhat dusty environment you may want to bring some slippers for indoor use, so you can leave your shoes at the door.
The pool is fenced for safety, but not locked. It is warm enough to swim from about April through October. Extra pool towels are supplied.
Since water in the desert is scarce, we try to conserve it as much as we can.
I maintain a no smoking environment, but guests may smoke outside if they wish.

My second time staying, the place was so cozy and comfortable, just what I needed for my time away. Els thoughtfully supplies her guests with amenities and I appreciated the private pool and spacious room. The proximity to hiking and restaurants is very close. I look forward to my next annual trip to visit Tucson and stay at Els'!!

This is a nice spacious room with refrig and microwave, toaster, sink and coffee maker. We created many of our breakfasts and lunches there. The pool was inviting and good lounges nearby for reading and sunning. Els was charming and friendly, a good source of information. It was a good location from which to head out ( by car) to many hiking spots.

Wonderful stay at Els. I was a woman on my own, felt completely safe the entire time, more so than even some high-end hotels! Perfect location for checking out everything that Tucson has to offer including, close to downtown, very close to hiking and lots of shopping options available close by. You do need a vehicle but that would be the case for most of Tucson anyways. Els kindly leant me one of her bikes and one evening road the bike down to the river and also for a drink downtown. The accommodations are perfect! All toiletries included so you feel like at a nice hotel but even better because Els stocks with sunscreen, tasty coffee, organic fruit, gluten-free muffins and trader joe goodies. Absolutely stay here if you want to enjoy Tucson for all it offers. Thank you again Els, will definitely be back!
