The Space

Traditional American hospitality in a 125-y.o. redwood house centrally located by the University of Arizona campus. Free on-street parking.

The guest room has a queen-size bed and a comfortable chair with reading lamp, as well as a dresser, double closet, cd/radio, and plenty of sunlight. Your private bath has a clawfoot tub with shower. Your private entrance is via a private porch overlooking the uniquely landscaped back yard.

The owner is an artist/writer/filmmaker, and the house and yard have a quiet, welcoming atmosphere.

Restoration and renovation of the interior of this unique historic house is now complete, with central heat and A/C and all modern conveniences.

Guest Access

The guest bedroom and private bath, private porch, living room, pantry, kitchen, large deck & yard. Washer/drier.

Interaction with Guests

Conversation, especially about local restaurants, directions, etc. I respect my guests' privacy and expect the same.

The Neighborhood

Architectural variety and historic homes. A mixed population (homeowners, students from around the world, etc.) and a pleasant atmosphere of quiet streets as well as busy coffee shops and restaurants. Pie Allen neighborhood is listed on the National Historic Register.

Getting Around

Maddox House is within walking distance of dozens of shops and restaurants and cultural activities as well as Tucson's popular Fourth Avenue district and downtown. Public transportation is close by, including the new streetcar line.

Other Things to Note

Maddox House is not wheelchair accessible, as there are stairs on the property and inside the house.

I'm an artist, and I've been in the visual and performing arts all my life--that's almost 60 years, now! Currently, I'm writing and producing a feature film. I'm easygoing and my home is peaceful and, above all, comfortable. My guests often remark on the quiet and relaxed atmosphere in my house. I love referring people to remarkable local restaurants and out-of-the-way places they wouldn't discover on their own. I enjoy good friends, good food, and good conversation.
