Lovely room in an artist's house in central Tucson for Women only. Includes Wifi, gardens. Near restaurants, cafe, 15 minutes to University and downtown, 3 hospitals nearby, friendly cats, quiet home, shared bathroom, patios, outdoor kitchen, and a winter veggie garden for guests. Inquire for weekly and monthly rates. Stays over 30 days do not have to pay local taxes.

The space

The "pink room" is fully furnished with desk and linen in an artist's house in central Tucson. Room is available for women only, as there is a shared bathroom. It has wifi, and is a friendly house that includes an indoor and outdoor kitchen, and a large outdoor patio area if you wish to entertain.

I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and my work is found throughout my house, a personal gallery. There is a studio on the property where I teach workshops, and I love when fellow Creatives come to "join the conversation" - groups are welcome with artist and writer retreats. I'm a vegetarian (although you don't need to be).

The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Three major hospitals are 15 minutes away if you are a visiting nurse or intern. Around the corner is a friendly WIFI Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, a health food Chinese restaurant, American breakfast cafe, bakery, a Tiki bar, and of course a convenience store. Sprouts market is 10 minutes away. Buses to downtown are a block away, and beautiful Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes drive.

Please smoke outside in smoking areas if you're a smoker. There are 2 indoor cats (Lulu and Lucy), and they are very friendly. Coffee and tea is always available. I have a big yard on a quiet street, but this is central Tucson and not pristine desert. There are the sounds of dogs, traffic, sometimes the sounds of children playing.

Guest access

Guests have access to everything - dining areas, kitchens, yard, movie collection, and two friendly cats.

Interaction with guests

Friendliness and courtesy are important as well as respect for privacy.

Other things to note

It is always my joy when I see the household sharing a meal, creating friendships, and enjoying the garden. Because it is a common space guests are required to help keep it clean.

You will love being in the back yard. Great garden. Hummingbirds and trees. The room I had is small but it's perfect for you if you are solo. The kitties are super friendly and sweet.

This place is a dream. Lovely room and grounds and hostess and kitties. The only bad thing was having to leave.

Lauren was very nice, and accommodated my unexpected early arrival. The place is cool/artsy, and pretty close to downtown entertainment, as well as a 40 min drive to the mtns.

Absolutely amazing stay. Laurens outdoor gardens and bohemian sheik style is so charming. It felt like Mexico patio complete with hammock. I would definitely return.

Lauren's place is a magical colorful home set inside a beautiful garden. It's hard to imagine that you are in the city! Her home is relaxed and friendly, topped off by 2 of the best cats ever.

Good central location. Lauren provided everything I needed for my stay (sheets, towels, refrigerator, stove, cooking utensils, etc.) And she was very helpful, giving me information about the area.

Lauren User ProfileLauren is a superhost.

I'm a professional artist specializing in masks and community arts. I'm 63, love conversation and creativity. I'm a vegetarian, concerned with the environment, and have traveled internationally. I had so many good experiences with B&B's in the British Isles and Europe, where it is very traditional for families to open their homes, that I decided to try it myself. I had the same good experiences when I travelled in Indonesia, and stayed at "home stays".

Because there's a great wifi cafe around the corner, I no longer cook breakfast, but I do enjoy creating a bright, colorful, serene space for the women who come to visit, and am always happy to share what I know about Tucson and the Southwest. I love Arizona, especially its warm, sunny winters.

Renovating the 1962 Airstream trailor in the back yard, and creating a patio for it, has been my latest "art project"..........I love making things old new and inviting.
