We had a delightful stay over Thanksgiving and were very impressed by Linda's thoughtfulness, from the set up of the apartment through the provisions and amazing pomegranates from the garden. The garden was such a haven, really peaceful.
Also a charming area with lots of interesting houses, great art community and easy walks to a wide variety of restaurants and microbreweries. Definitely recommend as a comfortable and charming place to stay.
My wife, daughter and I stayed in the Fig Tree Guest Apartment for two nights while my daughter and I participated in the Tour de Tucson bicycle ride. We appreciated being able to bring our bikes into the apartment because they are fairly valuable. Linda took effort to prepare for our visit and left some nice miscellaneous food that helped make our visit more pleasant. Linda was always available quickly by e-mail and was very helpful. After our long and exhausting rides, my daughter and I appreciated the plentiful hot water in the shower. The Fig Tree is very quiet and located in a historical neighborhood (Barrio Viejo). It is nice to walk around to see the many historical houses. The apartment is located within walking distance of downtown. There are many great restaurants nearby and we greatly appreciated Linda's recommendation of the 5 Points Restaurant which is only about 300 yards away and has great breakfasts. My race started very early before restaurants were open and I appreciated the well equipped and easy-to-use kitchen. The apartment is only a few blocks from the start/finish point of the Tour, which made it very convenient before and after the race. Many people had to struggle with very congested traffic while I just rode to the start and back from the finish. Remember that this is a historical neighborhood so don't expect an ultramodern apartment, but it should meet very well your needs for a comfortable and convenient place to stay in central Tucson near the University.
The Fig Tree was perfect for our ladies' trip to Tucson. Linda was an extremely kind and hospitable host and the accommodations were charming…complete with pomegranates in the fruit bowl from the backyard tree. The location was an easy walk to all that happens downtown, yet tucked far enough back into old historic Tucson to escape the hustle and bustle when needed.
I loved my stay at The Fig Tree Apt. Linda was a great host, the spacious apt was very clean, and there were some snacks set up in the fridge which felt very welcoming. The neighborhood is wonderful, ~ 5 min walk to all the restaurants/bars downtown or to catch the SunLink streetcar to go further uptown. I would definitely look to stay there again on future trips to Tucson
Wow. This place is absolutely charming. My wife and I are AirBnB hosts ourselves and we came away with a bunch of ideas to make our own guests felt more at home. Plenty of extra towels and blankets (the desert gets cold at night)--super clean--lite breakfast fare, tea and coffee available for us. Simply an outstanding way to spend the weekend in Tucson.
Really enjoyed my 3 days here! I didn't get to meet Linda, but after staying in her guest apartment I'd like to. It was clean and comfortable, an easy walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, art museums, and theaters. Linda made sure I knew who to contact should I have any problems, and provided fruit, bread, and coffee which was very helpful after lengthy travels. I'd definitely come back.
A family emergency cut our visit to Tucson short, however, we did enjoy our limited time at The Fig Tree apartment. Linda was a very friendly and accommodating host. She had left some food supplies to tide us over until we did some shopping. The apartment was located on a quiet street and within walking distance to town. The side patio and backyard were a peaceful oasis.
I have a spacious three room guest apartment in Tucson that I rent to visitors.
My home and studio are located next door.
When traveling I like to use Airbnb for interesting places to stay.
