Property description

Built in 1927 this 2 bedroom, 1 bath classic home of the era, has been subtly updated to make your stay comfortable, safe and convenient. The gas kitchen comes with full utensils if you prefer to cook. However, if you fancy a meal out we've provided a list of faves below. Big screen TV is connected to the internet for streaming video and cable.

Property entrance is in the rear and you may feel free to park inside the fence. Should you return after sunset automatic lighting is provided to assist as you fumble for your key.

Steel security coverings on all exterior openings.

Smoke free.

15 minutes from the airport this home is ideal for nearly any Tucson activity and it is one block from a bus stop on a major east/west line.

Walk able - four blocks east of the university of Arizona

Walk able - eight blocks from the Arizona Health Sciences Center and the University of Arizona Medical Center - University Campus.

Tucson has many interesting specialty shops and galleries in our city. Eclectic areas (such as fourth avenue) and traditional malls abound. From this property you'll find them all easily accessible.

Two minute walk (one block) to Rincon Market. If you're going to cook for yourself get your meat only from Uri at Rincon. Also, they have a full selection of fresh veggies, wines and beers. You can also try their breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet or sidle up to the deli counter for sandwiches. They also open the grill for lunch and on the weekends serve killer custom omelets.

10 minutes by car to Whole Foods or Safeway.

Dining: (some of our favorites)
Walk to PJ's subs (great sandwiches and cold beer).

Walk four blocks to social House, Grimaldi's Pizza and Allegro il Gelato Naturale. So, so parking at best.

15 minute walk (5 minute drive) to the Tucson Tamale Factory. Saturday or Sunday arrive before noon and try the huevos rancheros. Extraordinary! Good parking.

15 minutes walk through the U of A campus to the Main Gate Plaza where you'll find Pasco and many other dining options as well as shopping. Its a 5 minute drive but parking is a hassle, hassle, hassle.

8 minutes by car to the world famous Kingfisher Bar and Grill and the soon to be world famous Date's Fire. Great food and people at both. Good parking at both.

6 minutes by car to El Mocajete (breakfast and lunch). Incredible Mexican food known only to the locals. Mom in the kitchen, daughter running the front and family everywhere making it work. If you're there for lunch have a beer from the Silver Spur through the partition. Good parking.

10 minutes by car to down town where V Fine Thai, Janos Downtown Kitchen, Hub and many other interesting eateries await. Take a cab or call JK transportation for a town car that won't costs any more than a cab and the service is reliable.

10 minutes by car to Mcmahon's Steakhouse. Great, great beef and the best selection of cigars in tucson. Try a 64, ask for Bob and tell him Granger says hello. Good parking.

15 minutes by car to St. Philips Plaza which is home to Vivace (Ray at the bar and seafood lasagna), Scordato's Pizzeria (gf crust available) and Union House. Good parking.

15 minutes by car to Joesler Village where you'll enjoy Zin Burger, PF Chang's (Heather or Sydney at the bar), OM sushi and Sullivan's steakhouse. Good parking.
