Armory Park apartment description

(For more information about accommodations and Tucson, please visit our Facebook page. Look for 'Armory Park Guest Studios.')



Explore America’s first registered historic neighborhood from our cheerful guest apartments, perfect for short visits or special-rate extended stays. Not only is the Armory Park Neighborhood filled with vintage homes such as our circa-1902 adobe, but it’s also perfectly located for those who want to explore the heart of Tucson.

We're nestled right in the beating heart of this fascinating old frontier town. We also offer a sanctuary where you can take a break from driving.

Leave your car behind, and jump on one of our bikes for a flat, easy five-minute ride to downtown with its new explosion of restaurants, and to adjacent North Fourth Avenue's dozens of boutiques and shops. Or enjoy both with a leisurely, 20-minute walk along tree-lined sidewalks.

Stroll around the corner from our apartments for a burger and cold ale on the outside terrace of the popular neighborhood micro-brewery, or take a two-block journey to the 17th Street Market, offering everything from fresh produce and seafood to gourmet delicacies from around the world.

Feel like venturing further, and need tips for uncovering Southern Arizona's hidden charms? Just ask your host, who works as a freelance travel writer and journalist.

Then there are the apartments. Our sunny studios feature fully equipped kitchens--complete with coffee makers, toasters, microwaves, utensils, pots and pans--and bathrooms with towels and toiletries. We have comfy armchairs for reading and relaxing, and outside tables for shaded breakfasts and relaxing. The apartments are equipped with quality linens and comfortable bedding.

The apartments are smartly furnished with modern touches, and securely tucked alongside our home's Southwestern garden inside a gated, well-lit property. Your hosts live here as well, and are always on hand for questions and chats.

We designed our studios with visiting academic and traveling professionals in mind—or those simply seeking a bit of soothing, affordable refuge. Relax with our complimentary WiFi, linens, toiletries, cable TV, cold AC and hot, freshly ground gourmet coffee.

Check, cash or credit cards are accepted.

No pets or smoking. And though we love kids, the apartments aren't well-suited to them.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: Mary and Tim in Oaxaca. We teach, travel (when we can!) and write because we're hooked.

                          Why the Owner Chose Armory Park:
                          We purchased a home here because we enjoy this old-fashioned, historic neighborhood. The vacation rental is on the same property as our home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          This is a wonderful area for walking, with tree-lined streets and friendly neighbors. There's also a great view of Tucson's famous 'A' Mountain.
