About this listing
Sólo hablo un poco de español
Positano B&B is on an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds with a pool and waterfall. There are many private areas to relax and read or be entertained by the desert wildlife. This bedroom has a double bed and french doors opening onto a wonderful flagstone patio with an upholstered bench for reading and a little chiminea fireplace for those chilly evenings. So romantic! The flowers and shrubs were especially chosen to attract butterflies.
The newly updated bathroom is down a short hallway and would be shared with the guest in Sweet! if that room is booked as well. We keep it sparkling clean and the shower is wonderful.
We live in a quiet residential neighborhood with meandering streets and gentle hills. It is a great place to walk or jog. A few blocks away you can jump on the Rillito River Park Trail which is a popular running/biking/skating/walking trail that crosses the entire city. We have a couple bikes here and we'd be happy to loan them to you.
Tucson National Golf Resort is about a mile away if you like golfing. Or eating.. the restaurant is nice too. Tucson is full of fabulous golf courses and hiking trails and all kinds of outdoor activities.
Foothills Mall is about a mile away for the fashionista in you. There are countless restaurants in the neighborhood as well. The I-10 freeway is conveniently close to us.
If you ask, I would be happy to email you a link listing all Tucson events for the time you are interested in visiting... there's always a lot going on in the Old Pueblo.
We're not big on rules and since our guests so far have been very considerate we haven't felt a need to lay down any rules. I have had people ask about using our kitchen and that is something that we would rather not do. So there you have it:
Rule #1: no kitchen privileges.
However, we are happy to clear some refrigerator space for a few items that you might need to bring.
Rule #2: Okay, one more. No smoking in the house.
Ruthann has an amazing home and is a very welcoming host. I had a blast getting to know her and would highly recommend her home to anyone looking for a great place to stay while visiting Tucson!
This was a very nice stay. I was barely there but when I was Ruthann and JR were very friendly and made me feel at home. Thanks again for the great stay!
Our stay at Ruthann's and JR's place was delightful. Very hospitable people they are and I would definitely stay at there place again. Lots of seating around the house, private and public in a beautiful desert landscape.
Ruthann and JT are marvelous hosts.
Their one acre Tucson B + B was beautifully decorated with lots of
fun art. There are multiple areas to sit outside and be comfortable, and we swam in the pool (very refreshing in 88 degree weather!).
Lots of trees and we saw grackles, hummingbirds, quail,
house wrens and lots of doves! Waking up to the sound of birds in the morning- very special. Lovely breakfast spread and fresh fruit each morning--coffee daily. Very calm and serene place to stay .
Would love to return when we come back to Tucson!
Ruthann and JR were super accommodating and wonderful! The house was clean and quiet and the bed was soft and comfy! I love that part of town and listening to the morning desert sounds was very relaxing. I even heard coyotes one night! But felt safe and cozy in my bed. We were in and out a lot and Ruthann and JR were always pleasant. Also a fan of kitty!
Ruthann and JR made our first airbnb experience so easy and wonderful! Their home was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Our room was charming with french doors that opened to a back patio. We will definitely be back next time we visit Tucson!
Ruthanne & JR were very welcoming & outgoing. Their home was funky & fun, with beautiful outdoor areas! This was our first airb&b experience, but understand they do not all present the lovely breakfast we received every morning. Not just coffee & bagels, but also freshly made green smoothies & fresh fruit. Very quiet, yet easy access. A fun first time experience!

About the Host, Ruthann
I am retired (yippee!) American Airlines. My husband JR and I love having guests in our home. JR plays guitar for fun and creates beautiful landscapes for a living.
If we could travel ALL the time we would. We have been on some great trips and especially love Mexico, Guatemala and Spain. There are so many places yet to experience .
We can't travel all the time, so lucky for us that we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth...the Sonoran desert. We both love to immerse ourselves in creative projects here at home and so our surroundings have become this endless Home Improvement Project. We figured out a long time ago that we like the process more than the end result, and we'll never ever run out of ideas.
There is usually music around this house. JR is often working on a blues song or jazzy instrumental and he loves an audience.
I've started a little jewelry business and I dream of traveling to fun places, staying with Airbnb folks along the way and funding it with my jewelry money. Tucson has a wonderful International Gem Show in the spring so it's a perfect source for my beads and charms.
Tucson also has fabulous hiking trails so we hike em. There are wonderful yoga studios so I vinyasa in em. Biking trails abound and we like to do that too.
Our dogs Lucy and Kitty get along well with people. They may bark when you first arrive but they are all bark, no bite.
So, there. Now you have a little info about us. Now come on down!
