I stayed at Chelsea and Tim's place for eleven nights and it was an excellent place to stay. The guest house was clean and updated and had everything necessary for a short stay in Tucson. Chelsea and Tim were approachable and helpful with anything I needed. The location was a nice, quiet neighborhood and walking to the University of Arizona was possible (about a 20-25 minute walk to main campus). I have absolutely no complaints about my experience there and would recommend their place in a heartbeat to anyone I knew who needed lodging in the area.
The guest house fitted our needs perfectly. The comfortable bed and the quiet neighborhood made for good sleeping. There is a decent-size bathroom and a nice shower. We made good use of the sun-filled patio. The cottage is small, but can easily accommodate 1-2 people. There are some good restaurants within several blocks, but a car is a necessity.
Chelsea and Tim are wonderful hosts. Their guest house, however small, is attractively furnished and very clean. The gated private parking space and lovely private courtyard were appreciated. We had a special need as John became very ill while there. Tim was helpful in getting us to medical care and then checking every day to see if we needed anything.
I loved this guest house! It was adorable, and even better than the photos. It was comfortable and well-appointed, with a large bathroom, well-stocked kitchenette, nice linens, huge TV and plenty of storage. The neighborhood was a great location, safe and very quiet, a lovely respite from my very hectic work schedule. The garden is large, private and lovely, too. While I was pretty low-maintenance, the hosts were very responsive and attentive, and checked in with me (via text) to make sure I was settled, comfortable, and didn't need anything. Arrival & departure were very easy. Highly recommended. Thanks, Chelsea & Tim!
I had never rented through AirBnB before and I have to say Chelsea and Tim's place is very nice. It is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The welcome was very nice. Chelsea had even brought a bike pump for me in case I needed it (I was there for a week of cycling). the place even has it's own little terrasse with locked gate. I would definitely recommend this place! It is ideal for one or two people. I will most probably return! I enjouyed it very much. Thanks!!
Great hosts and excellent little guest house! Stayed here for a week: the location is great and the guest house with its own little yard was very pleasant. Quiet, clean, simple design, a nice little kitchen for basic self-catering. Ask for local tips: theirs were spot on. Stay here!
We enjoyed our stay and found Tim to be most responsive to our needs and questions. The casita is charming and we are interested in another stay when we return to Tucson. All went well!
Chelsea is a speech-language pathologist and Tim is a hydrologist. Together, we love to hike and travel. Our favorite trips have been spent biking through Europe. We love the beautiful Sonoran desert and hope you can visit!
