The Space

Spacious guest room in a quiet neighborhood. The room has a comfortable Queen sized bed, large closet & dresser, ceiling fan, and a reading corner with chair and bookcase. A private, full bathroom across from the bedroom is for your exclusive use (equipped with a hair dryer too). You’re welcome to use the adjacent den which has a TV, DVD player, and a Roku-2x box (for streaming Netflix, HuluPlus, etc.), as well as a desk to take care of any emails, write a letter or postcard, etc. WIFI access available throughout the house. Access to kitchen & laundry facilities, and to the Arizona room and patio. Overnight stay includes breakfast, if you like. Free parking. Non-smoking and no pets please.

Home is centrally located in mid-town Tucson within walking distance of the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Within a 2.5 mile radius of the house, you’ll find a municipal golf course, tennis center & the Reid Park Zoo, two shopping centers (both have multiplex movie theatres and stores such as Target & Macy’s), and a wide variety of restaurants & grocery stores (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Safeway, Fry's). Tucson Medical Center is 2 miles away, the University of Arizona is 3 miles away, and downtown Tucson is a 15 minute drive - and all are easy to get to by bus. The Sabino Canyon recreation area is 20 minutes away, and the airport about 25 minutes. There is a local bus stop just 2 blocks from the house if you intend to use public transportation while in Tucson.

My home is a comfy, inviting, friendly environment. If there’s anything I can do to help you enjoy your stay in Tucson, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Interaction with Guests

Being an Airbnb host has been a joy primarily because of the wonderful guests who chose to stay at my place during their travels. I personally welcome all guests upon arrival and bid them a fond farewell when they leave. I love getting to know my guests and enjoy hearing their stories whatever they may be! But, I definitely know when to give my guests their personal space.

  • When I walked into my bedroom at Karen's I had a huge smile on my face as the space was all about the beach and ocean. The next day I was to drive to San Diego for my own immersion in the wonderful waters of the Pacific Ocean for my birthday celebration!

    Karen welcomed me graciously and with warmth and made certain that all of my needs were taken care of during my one night stay there. Breakfast was lovely and healthy - my kind of nourishment! Great conversations about travel and life which has inspired me in many ways!

    Will certainly stay with Karen again when I am next in Tucson. Besides we need to continue the conversation.....

  • Clean and comfortable.... big things for me. This place was as nice as the picture looks. Karen has a nice space and she is a fine host. The Arizona room was a great place to enjoy breakfast and hang out. Once Karen showed us around the house she gave us space to rest. An extra fan was provided in addition to the ceiling fan. The house was cool upon arrival and throughout our visit. I recommend it. This was my first airbnb... I hope all the rest go as well. Nancy T.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Karen's place. She was an accommodating host with a comfortable house that she is willing to share. She greeted me upon arrival, showed me about the house and then left me on my own. In the morning she prepared breakfast that consisted of strong coffee, fruit, yogurt, juice and freshly made scones. Her home is nicely located, making it easy for me to travel around the university area. I highly recommend Karen's place.

  • Karen showed understanding and sensitivity that I was attending a Conference all day, and would show up late, and tired, and needed to check the day's emails. She helped me plan where would be best to go to daily Mass, in relationship to where I was going to the Conference, which was very helpful, and sent me on my way one day with some wonderful tea. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. I had a reaction to the detergent she uses, and she took care to run the bedding through an extra rinse cycle with some baking soda, so I could sleep better.

  • I had a beautiful stay at Kren's house. The room was really comfy especially after a long flight 'from France. I had a wonderful sleep and didn't feel the jetlag the following morning. The house is very quiet and you feel like at home. I had a warm welcome ans she served me a very healthy breakfast. Thanks again Karen i had a short and nice stay in Tuson - my first stop in the Us.

  • My stay at Karen's was great. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Karen was very gracious and accommodating. She offered help in anticipation of what I might need during my stay before I even thought of it. I enjoyed our interesting talks and the ease of being at her house. I would highly recommend a stay at Karen's.

Hi, I'm Karen! Tucson's been my home for the past 12 years -- the winters here are glorious and the summers are challenging! I'm semi-retired but have always been a full-time writer and adventurer. I'm a no-frills type of traveler, love to visit cities and towns in the US and Europe, prefer walking & public transit/trains versus renting a car, enjoy staying in small B&Bs or local homes and making new friends along the way. Traveling is all about the journey! I'm an avid reader, like to garden, cook & bake bread, enjoy bike riding, walking & hiking, but tap dancing is my #1 exercise (5-6-7-8!). My comfy house in Tucson is centrally located in a quaint area of mid-town which means quick access to the U of A, downtown Tucson, recreation areas, restaurants & shopping centers. If you're ready for a true desert experience, visit Tucson -- it would be my pleasure to host you!
