I stayed at Jennifer and Robert's sugar shack for 3 months. I really enjoyed my stay there! It is located in a horse ranch and the Airbnb is secluded and private. The property is gated and safe. Jennifer and Robert were really easy to communicate with! It was such a peaceful retreat yet still only a few minutes from the grocery stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying there if you're ever in Tucson.

The 5 acre property is beautifully landscaped in a scenic neighborhood very near shops and restaurants. Although the main house and another small home occupy the property, we felt we had complete privacy in the cabin.

Jennifer and Robert's quaint guesthouse, dubbed the "Sugar Shack", is a wonderful place to retreat for a weekend, week, or, in our case, a month. We loved the privacy of their beautifully landscaped property, and the roof deck was an awesome spot for sunbathing, sunset watching, star gazing, or just socializing. The 5 acre property is gated, and is minutes away from restaurants, grocery store, movie theater, hiking areas; just about everything! And Jennifer and Robert are such genuine and generous people, making them perfect hosts. We can't recommend this location highly enough!

Jen and Robert are wonderful people! The kindness that they share is so wonderful. They were great hosts and made sure I had what I needed during my stay. I would absolutely stay here again. Oh, and Annie is also one of the most wonderful dogs!

This was the second stay at the ranch. I rented the "star gazer " cabin. The cabin was very comfortable. I came to Tucson to ride my bike. The ranch has enough room to store my bike case in the garage. The property is secured by a fence around the property which made feel a bit safer . considering I am a city guy. The property affords lots of privacy which I enjoyed . They have a resident dog Annie which is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. I recommend staying at the ranch. You will need a car as Tucson has a bit of a car culture and is a bit spread out. Thanks to Robert and Jennifer for a nice stay in Tucson

Jennifer & Robert User ProfileJennifer & Robert is a superhost.

We are entrepreneurs by nature and enjoy the freedom and flexibility that a self directed path can provide. We love to travel and return annually to both Hawaii & Colorado. We had our first date on the island of Kauai and wanted to name our special property to honor our connection to the islands, hence the name Paniolo which means Cowboy in Hawaiian. We also love to landscape, meditate and lend a helping hand. You will see me working on the property tending to the mesquite trees, palo verde and native iron woods or assisting our guests. Robert enjoys cooking on the grill when at home and fly fishing when he is in Colorado. We like social events so a few times a year we will host a fund raiser or have friends over to cook in our authentic Hawaiian imu pit. So grab a Hawaiian shirt and some slippers and come experience the casual elegance of the Paniolo Ranch.
