We are from Tucson, Arizona. Interested in art, jewelry, food and life!
I can't imagine a better place to relax and unwind. We made breakfast each morning from the fresh chicken's eggs and later took turns lounging in the outdoor bath. Gary's book collection is inspired and another treat of the trip was dipping into some of the classics while lounging. The location is ideal and it's an easy walk to most anyplace you'd want to go... and short drive to some incredible hiking options. Gary was a wonderful host and helped us out at every turn. Very highly recommended.
It is hard to know where to start to describe what a remarkable find this rental was! The home is situated in the best and most beautiful part of Tucson and the house is itself a work of art - remarkably comfortable with two gorgeous bedrooms, a large modern kitchen, a dining room, a video sitting room, a parlor with a grand piano and a yard that itself is worth the visit - chickens and that means fresh eggs every morning and a resident tortoise who likes being hand-fed carrots. I had one of the very best vacations and this house was a dream come true.
WOW! SUch a cool space, close to everything in central Tucson, and with a charm that made our stay so very memorable! Gary was such a thoughtful and accommodating host, and his home was a comfortable and inviting space to retire to after long days under the Tucson sun. He helped us with some restaurant choices that ended up being our favorites during our stay. The pictures of his home pretty much tell the whole story, while Gary's thoughtfulness and professionalism were the icing on the cake! Thanks so much!!!
The Historic 1860's Territorial Adobe is an absolute gem. It is a warm, inviting, fascinating home environment with attentive hosts and an ideal location for exploring Tucson and surrounding locales. We have been fortunate to rent many unique and beautiful houses and apartments in many different locations, and this residence ranks at the top. It is simply unforgettable! Thank you to our gracious hosts for a splendid stay in Tucson!
Such a beautiful experience. Gary and Darren are the perfect hosts and their home is so warm and unique. Thank you.
Gary's home is a gem! Beautifully decorated, spacious, and very comfortable. We loved spending afternoons and evenings in the back yard, listening to the fountain and watching geckos scurry over the rocks. Can't recommend this enough!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Gary's beautiful home. Between the art collection, books, gorgeous living space and amazing backyard we barely wanted to leave the house to go do anything. Gary is a wonderful host and easily accessible for any questions or needs you might have. I highly recommend this fantastic historic home!
This was one of the most enchanting places I have ever stayed. It was such a wonderful experience, from meeting Gary, our host, to cooking in the beautiful kitchen with perfectly seasoned cast iron pans. We spent quiet moments in each room just enjoying the art covered walls of this historic Adobe. The structure has been so lovingly restored that we marveled at every inch. There was always something new to discover. Dining Al Fresco for our meals made us feel relaxed and renewed everyday. We especially enjoyed relaxing next to an open fire, under the stars.
The highlight of our stay, fresh eggs from our very own chickens and a glorious Rooster. This place is totally unique and totally beautiful. I long to return. I long to return to this sanctuary of privacy and serenity.
Thank you Gary for our perfect get-a-way. It was a privilege to experience this extraordinary home.
My family and I stayed at Gary's place for a long weekend to celebrate my graduation. It was the first time that they had been to Tucson and Gary's place was such a perfect way to introduce them to the southwest and all of it's unique charm. We enjoyed spending time together in the back yard, gathering around a fire pit at night, and sharing several home cooked meals. The house is even more beautiful and energetic than the pictures show. Thanks for everything, Gary!
Gary and his partner, Darren, were very friendly and perfectly lovely guests. We hope to be able to stay in their place when we are in their area visiting family next.
Gary, Sofie, Darren and Sandra were all lovely guests. Very personable, friendly and respectful. They left everything tidy and graciously invited me out for dinner and coffee. Would happily host them again.
