About this listing
This casita is part of a charming Spanish colonial 4 plex located in a quiet, historic neighborhood. It is very close to the University of Arizona, the 4th Avenue shopping/dining district and a 20 minute walk to the downtown business district.
We offer two charming one bedroom casitas located in a quiet historic neighborhood within walking distance to the University of Arizona and the 4th Avenue shopping district. Both casitas are well equipped with everything you'll need for a relaxing stay....comfortable queen size bed with luxurious linens, air conditioning, full size living room couch, flat panel LED TV with satellite connection, and wireless internet provided. Original oak floors have been refinished bringing a warmth to the interior along with many windows which bring in an abundance of light. Both casitas share a private outdoor courtyard complete with a gas bbq gril, dining table, a set of chaise lounges, and set of adirondack chairs to enjoy a warm sunny afternoon or star filled evening. Over the past two years, this Spanish colonial property has been renovated inside and out to bring back its southwestern charm. Guests have access to the basement apartment which has been turned into a complimentary onsite laundry facility. Off street parking is provided in the rear of the property.
This is a non smoking residence. Smoking is permitted outside in the courtyard area.

I have been teaching in the public school system here in Tucson for the past 28 years. My wife is also an educator at the University of Arizona. We have two amazing daughters, 17 and 15, who are the focus of our lives. We have been renting our guesthouse, Casita Emmalia, as a vacation rental for the past 8 years. We love meeting new people, building relationships, and welcoming return guests each winter season.
Over the past five years, we have been working hard to restore a historic Spanish colonial 4-plex near the University of Arizona. We have completely renovated the property inside and out and are very happy with the results. We now offer two fully furnished one bedroom casitas and two fully furnished 2 bedroom units on Airbnb. Check out our listings for Casitas Helena!
Since we have the summers free, we love to travel and explore new places.....especially places by water because we have so little in Arizona.
One of our favorite places to spend time is Bolinas, California.....great beaches and hiking....and so close to San Francisco, our favorite American city! We have also recently discovered Telluride, Colorado and have spent the past few New Years skiing and enjoying the beauty of the west slope of the Rocky Mountains.
