I stayed at GiGi's place in April 2013. Nice place, tastefully appointed, clean and furnished with whatever you need. Good neighborhood in central location... Gigi is very personable and pleasant to deal with.

I cannot say enough positives about my stay at the "Royal Palms II". The owner, GiGi Brown, was extremely gracious and helpful, although she was only available when needed. My room and the facilities adjoining were immaculate and exceptionally comfortable — about 5 light-years better than a hotel. If you like comfort, privacy, feeling at home, elegance yet informality in a perfect location for Tucson, then this place will suit your needs. I can hardly wait to return for a visit to Tucson so I can stay there again. Thank you for helping to make my visit safe, carefree and memorable.

Our stay in Tucson was our first winter excursion after retiring a year ago. We found Tucson to be a wonderful change from cold snowy Kansas. The Royal Palms II was everything we could wish for; it was very well located for easy access to all areas of the city and various hiking trails, a main interest of ours. The location is close to most amenities we needed for our months stay. The owner was most helpful in making recommendations for shopping, sights of interest and restaurants. The house was spacious, well appointed, convenient, and clean. It met all of our need for a home-away-from-home. We will definitely consider returning in the future.

I have just returned from a very pleasant stay at this property (March 2007). The house was nicely decorated, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The private patio with BBQ, large dining room, well equipped kitchen and access to the pool were great. The unit is centrally located and only a short drive to spring training baseball, golf and downtown shopping. There are grocery stores, restaurants and other shopping close by as well. The owner, who lives in an adjacent property was very helpful with information on Tuscon and a very pleasant host . I enjoyed my stay very much and have already booked the home for next year and look forward to future visits. I highly recommend this property as a great place to stay in Tuscon.

We had a wonderful time during our visit to Tucson. The home was wonderful-just as pretty as the pictures; very quaint, clean, and quiet. It was great to have access to a full kitchen, grill, tv etc. and the location was great-convenient to everything. We spent every morning having coffee in the private courtyard while Gigi's cats came over to pay us a visit. Gigi was helpful and friendly. We were very happy with the property-only thing is the second bedroom is not a queen as stated, but a double. We had a great time and would definetely visit again!

About the owner: Hi, Here you see happy girls enjoying the AZ sun! I am an interior design professor at a local community college and devoted yoga instructor. For 35 years this dear home has been my sanctuary and was built in the late 30's of last century. Has lots of character.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I choose to rent some of my home because of too much house. It's now like a duplex, separated by enclosed hall and utilitie room. Remember thick adobe walls, the areas of each house parts are not attached, just passage way with locked doors at either end of passage hall.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Welcome, Your guesthouse is the main residence and very private, although attached to east wing where I live. You have your own patio, next to the pool which we share. The best benifit is location. Close to everything. You will be in the very center of Tucson, a short hour drive from Mt. Lemmon, there is a ski reort, and yes in winter, sometime you can ski our 9000+ ft mountain. Also, two minutes drive to a great golf course. Minutes away from University of Arizona campus and three major hospitals, UMC, TMC and St Joseph's. Our location is within walking distance from the Speedway and Alvernon intersection. Contact me for more info, Cordially, Gigi. home (520) 881 4957, cell (520) 730 4576.
