If you are looking for a beautiful home in the heart of Tucson's historic Sam Hughes district, close to the University and many other Tucson attractions and spas, you have found it here!
Recently renovated and beautifully furnished 3BR, 2 BA home in the heart of the historic Sam Hughes neighborhood. Within walking distance of beautiful parks, stores, restaurants and the University of Arizona and its museums and offerings. Within short driving/taxi distance of first class day spas, golf, tennis, sports, hiking and diverse Tucson attractions.
The home is very open and offers a lot of light. Ideal for 2 couples or a couple with a friend/s or small family who wish to enjoy some time in Tucson. The living space is open to the kitchen and dining area. Depending on the party, it sleeps 4 or 5 comfortably. One bedroom offers a queen sized bed. The second offers a full to queen sized (It is a queen but one guest suggested it is not adequate for two larger people). The third bedroom also serves as an office for those who need to work on the road, and also has a single couch or blowup bed.
There is an outdoor parking space for one or two cars.
The style is modern chic with beautiful wood ceilings and exposed logs in the living area.
The outdoor living space is private (surrounded by adobe wall and gates) and spacious. The outdoor space is adorned by indigenous plants and other special touches. You will enjoy mountain views from the front patio and BR/office.
The Sam Hughes neighborhood is on the national historic register and is perfect for morning and evening walks. Within 1-2 blocks each way is a corner market for coffee and convenient shopping, a pub and Tucson Tamale, the best tamales in the city! The University of Arizona is also a short 10-15 minute walk and offers museums, the arts, music and other attractions, including sporting events in the PAC-12 at the highest level of collegiate sports.
Tucson public transit is excellent and accessible.
The home is unique in many respects, but mostly due to the openness, light, exposed wood and log in a traditional southwestern adobe home. It is also well situated to all attractions, from day spas such as Miraval and Canyon Ranch to first class golf courses and hiking trails in Sabino Canyon.
p.s. While one week is the minimum stay, I will consider long weekends of 4 night minimum stays at a slightly higher price.
Guests have full access to the house, including the front patio, back yard and driveway.
Interaction with Guests
Guests have sole access to the house during their stay. I am involved only in check in and check out.
The neighborhood, Sam Hughes, is a lovely historic neighborhood. It is beautiful for walks, has easy access to a neighborhood grocer (Rincon Market), restaurants by foot or car and is walking distance to the University of Arizona and its many attractions. It is also centrally located to ever attraction in the Tucson area. One of my favorite spots for eat in or take out is the original Tucson Tamales, the best in the land! (A short walk from the house)
There is easy public transit and while convenient to have a car, depending on the purpose of your trip, you can choose not to have a car.
Other Things to Note
It's a lovely property with all amenities and you will feel at home and very comfortable.

We require a cleaning service after each rental but please clean up after yourself so that cleaning is surface cleaning. We expect guests to report any problem or damage immediately.
Sunroom, office and 3rd bedroom that explodes with sunlight in the morning, when you raise the sun-proof blinds!
About the Host, Laura
I am from NJ, currently live in DC and Tucson. I like to travel, workout, enjoy running and my dog and all dogs and animals. I enjoy the beach in the summer, mountains in the winter, and the beauty of nature as well as the energy of great cities. I love great live music and good theater and good food is important to me as well! When I travel I like to be very active but then have a comfortable place to rest. I treat hosts' homes as I would my own and expect the same of guests in my home.
