About this listing
Lovely room in an artists house in central Tucson, includes Wifi, garden, indoor and outdoor kitchen. Near restaurants, cafe, 15 minutes to University and downtown. Shared bathroom, and two friendly cats. For women only.
The "pink room" is fully furnished with desk and linen in an artist's house in central Tucson, and rooms are available for WOMEN ONLY, as there is only one shared bathroom.
The University of Arizona is just 15 minutes away with easy access to buses. Around the corner is a friendly WIFI Cafe, a Mexican Bistro, a Polish restaurant, American breakfast cafe, bakery, a health food Chinese restaurant, a Tiki Bar, and of course a convenience store. Buses to downtown are half a block away, and beautiful Sabino Canyon is 20 minutes drive away. Shared bath, and a dining area as well as patio for additional dining (with an outdoor kitchen with barbeque). Full kitchen in the house, wifi internet. Please smoke outside if you're a smoker as there is no smoking allowed in the house. There are indoor cats (Lulu and Lucy), so if you have allergies or don't love cats this is not a home you would be comfortable in.
I have a big yard on a quiet street - but, this is central Tucson. There are neighbors dogs, occasional traffic. It's not pristine silence, just a quiet neighborhood.
I'm an artist with a 40 year career, and my work is to be found throughout my house. I'm very interested in sustainability and green technology, and I love to garden. I'm a vegetarian (although you don't need to be), and I enjoy meeting interesting people. I've been a world traveler myself, and I keep my prices affordable so that others can afford to travel as I've been able to. Privacy and quiet is important in the house, but so is a friendly atmosphere.
Tucson is a great place in the winter, and beautiful at any time of the year!
Guests have access to everything - two dining areas, kitchens, yard, movie collection, and two very friendly cats.
Interaction with Guests
I require a profile from guests, and will not rent to people who won't tell me something about themselves. It is also difficult to accept same day reservations, so generally I will only accept reservations with two days or more advance.
Friendliness and courtesy are very important to me and other guests, as well as respect for privacy.
I'm very central, the neighborhood is quiet and middle class, with pharmacy, convenience store, restaurants in walking distance. I think the Wifi cafe around the block (Crave Coffee) and Guilan Vegetarian Chinese restaurant (across Broadway) are especially great to have in the neighborhood.
buses can be had a block away, and bicycles are always good to have in Tucson.
Other Things to Note
We all lead busy lives, but I find that sometimes I am bothered by guests that, well, treat my home as a cheap motel, barely noticing that it is a home, with other people in it. If you have a need for extreme privacy such that saying hello in the morning, or sharing the kitchen with others bothers you.........please seek the impersonal autonomy of a motel, instead of a shared household.
I'm often busy myself, and can't always interact with guests as much as I would like to, but it is always my joy when I see guests connecting, sharing a meal, creating friendships.
If you smoke please smoke outside on the patio. Help yourself to coffee and tea at any time. Lulu and Lucy are indoor cats, so please be careful not to let them outside - they just aren't ready for the "great outdoors" yet!
