Property description

Our guest suite is located on our three and a half acre property and separated from our main home for complete privacy and quiet. The suite is 700 square feet with 9' ceilings for the living and sleeping areas with a generously sized 3/4 bath, large walk in closet, and a large covered porch. We have free WiFi access. A full kitchen is not available so we cannot allow hotplates to be put in use due to the lack of range hood and sink facility to do dishes. However we have a 1000 watt microwave, cuisinart toaster oven, new Charbroil gas grill on the patio (30000 btu), indoor and outdoor tables and chairs, high quality disposable plates, glasses, and silverware and ceramic coffee cups, a 4.5 cu ft. refrigerator,coffee maker and grinder with Trader Joe's French roast beans, teas, and complimentary Chardonnay and Merlot wines from northern California and 4 bottled waters.
Close by we have four fast food places, the best coffee shop for coffee and pastries and a huge gathering spot for bicyclists, an Irish pub, an Italian deli and sandwich place and three dinner restaurants, notably the new Mexican restaurant Rancho Rustico, which is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Tucson.
Traveling to or through Tucson with your horses? Horse boarding for up to three horses is available in our barn with individual inside and outside stalls, automatic watering systems and individual raised feeders, gated common corrals, and a gated common arena. Total arena and corral area is approximately one acre-great for full horse workouts.
An ideal location for visiting gem show buyers or sellers, visiting bicyclists, golfers or anyone wanting to be within a very short distance to dozens of golf courses, the top of Mount Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, the Saguaro National Park East, or any of the attractions south and east of town - Colossal Caves, Kartchner Caverns, bird watching in Patagonia, or the historic towns of Tombstone and Bisbee Arizona. A twenty minute drive puts you at Campbell and Skyline roads where you will find Gallery Row and some of the finest dining in Tucson.

We clean upon request and provide clean towels every third day.We will consider one small dog but it must remain with you at all times-there is no safe outdoor space to leave it because of possibility of encounters with coyotes or bobcats.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and i have owned our property for eleven years. We built the studio/guest house in 2008. I am an oil painter and needed a large studio to do my work and the large guest suite seemed like a natural fit for visiting relatives. For several years we have used home away for our own vacations and so it dawned on us that other people might enjoy our place as much as our relatives have.
