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 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!
We felt really welcome, the house was beautiful, the host were very nice! This was the best airbnb I have stayed at! I would go back in a heartbeat!
The entire experience was excellent; great place, great location, great hosts. Fabulous breakfast. As much or as little interaction with the very interesting hosts as desired. I would go back in a minute! A five star experience.
JR and Ruthann were absolutely lovely hosts who graciously opened up their very comfortable, clean and stylish home to us. We enjoyed our delicious breakfast out on the patios and soaked up the positive desert vibes in good company (both human and furry). Their place is conveniently located ~20 minutes from downtown Tucson as well as the Saguaro National Park--so very central if you are looking for a bit of both worlds. Highly recommended and a great and easy experience overall. Don't miss out if you are looking to stay with stellar hosts in the Tucson area!
Ruthann and JR have a beautiful home and are beautiful people! Our stay at Sweet Too was wonderful and we would not have changed anything. Great location, and close to excellent hikes and restaurants. Their home was very welcoming and the hospitality was great. JR has done an amazing job on the landscaping, giving each room its individual and private patio to relax and enjoy the perfect Arizona weather; while Ruthann has added her special touch to each room with vibrant colors and patterns, making their home very inviting. Breakfast each morning was delicious and fresh with a variety of choices. They were so helpful when we had questions and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and hikes.
Thank you both for allowing us into your home. It was a great experience staying with you and getting to know you both! I wish you both the best.

oh this is the first time I write comments on airbnb, since I found that our host, Ruthann, is super nice and the place is so fantastic if you love spacious, tiny and warm place.
Daily breakfast, you no need to worry about where to eat, sometimes you will have suprises with fresh baked croissant!
Kitty the dog is so lovely, I like her so much.
So I will definitely recommend to everybody to Tucson! Cheers!!
Thanks Ruthann for the great place!

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!
