The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was the perfect place for us to stay in Tucson! It was on the North side of town, close to a number of state parks but still just 10min from downtown. Staying with Ruthann and RJ felt like a vacation with friends. We instantly felt at home. Beautiful house and backyard pool.

  • Such a great place to stay! Ruthann and her husband J.R. are such wonderful people who are warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the Tuscon area. Our room, Sweet Too! Was perfect for our short stay in Arizona-- with French doors that opened up to a backyard patio and a pool! Every morning there was a great spread of food and coffee for breakfast that made you feel like you were right at home. I would highly recommend staying here and getting to know these two! We are very glad we did :).

  • Ruthann and JR were so welcoming and sweet, it was an added joy to their already wonderful oasis in the desert. I would stay here again and again if and when I return to Tucson.

    March 2014
  • This was my second stay with Ruthann and JR, which is a great endorsement in itself. They are charming and generous hosts, and great people. Their home is lovely, comfortable and in a convenient location near the highway. I may be back again!

  • Lovely home! Ruthann was a wonderful host. I would recommend this booking for a nice retreat in the desert.

  • Ruthann and JR are wonderful hosts! They were very accommodating and friendly from the start, despite our late check-in. We were pleasantly surprised to find ice cold water and glass cups on the night stand. Awesome! They made our stay comfortable and at home from the start. There was freshly brewed coffee and berries every morning which helped us kick start our day the right way. The house is decorated creatively and vibrantly, where it truly reflects their personalities and lifestyles. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting down and chatting with them around the house and wish we were around longer to talk some more! Unfortunately, we were unable to swim in their beautiful backyard because we spent most of the day at the gem and mineral show.. but we will definitely be back next year!

  • Sweet Too was perfect for my visit to Tucson. Ruthann and JR are just great hosts and fun people. Thanks for the hospitality guys. You've got a great place there. I wish it had been warm enough to enjoy the pool.

    February 2014
  • Ruthann was awesome and her home is so beautiful. The room was perfect for us, and the garden was lovely and peaceful. We booked super last minute, and Ruthann rushed to take us as soon as she could... The guitar music in the morning was amazing!

    February 2014
  • We loved our stay with Ruthann and JR!
    It was a lovely room in a beautifully creative house, and they were welcoming and wonderful.
    We only wish we had a little more time to enjoy!

    February 2014
  • Ruthann and JR are wonderful hosts! Sweet Too was perfectly Tucson- adobe home, quiet, artistic touches (JR had quite the guitar collection- and a beautiful voice!), and Ruthann is so generous- she fed us breakfast! A wonderful home with a wonderful couple.

Retired American Airlines
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 dog Lucy gets along well with people. She may bark when you first arrive but she is all bark, no bite. So, there. Now you have a little info about us. Now come on down!
