About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to the Franco Apartments. Our charming Victorian home, built in 1903 these were Tucson's first brick apartments. Located in the Armory Park historic district, definitely a lively neighborhood with a rich style of architecture that perfectly matches its history. You'll be in close proximity to a number of amenities such as shops and restaurants in the downtown area as well as entertainment, the arts, and only 1.5 miles from the U of A. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The Victorian style brick apartment is a peaceful haven in the downtown Tucson area. Highlighting a classy, fresh atmosphere with 580 sq. feet of living quarters it features, hardwood flooring in the living room and bedroom, antique doors and knobs, high ceilings and thick walls, beautiful trim and windows.

Entering the bedroom you're met with a lustrous queen size bed (using a Casper mattress), decked with white cotton sheets and blankets, pillows and quilts, and a cool linen duvet cover. There are also two closets with wooden hangers and luggage racks for your use.

The bathroom has a cozy feel featuring a claw foot tub and corner sink, with plenty of fresh white linens for your entire stay. There is also a washer and dryer included in the home as well.

The farmhouse style kitchen includes stainless steel appliances (fridge, stove, oven, toaster oven), as well as a Keurig for your morning coffee or tea with a plentiful supply of coffee pods and bottled water. The kitchen is fully stocked with dinnerware, glassware, utensils, and basic cooking accessories.

For our guest's convenience we offer keyless entry by using the August Lock system making it simple and secure for our guests to gain access inside the home, using the August Smart Lock with the August app or if the quests prefer not to use the app they can use the August Smart Keypad with their own personalized keycode to grant entry to the home.

We provide you with a parking permit for on-street parking right in front of the apartment, which gives you easy access into the house. We also have gated off-street parking for 2 week long stays or longer.

Our mission is to provide our guest’s with a comfortable home that has a clean, fresh, living environment, giving you a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere to relax in.

Simply Amazing!

What a wonderful little home away from home with all the comforts one could possibly need. Thank you so much for sharing this clean and fun little spot with us. Such a short walk to town, but away from all the noise. Loved it! VCM from NC

We loved this charming, comfortable historic home and the artsy character of the surrounding neighborhood. It could not have been more perfect for us. Grace was a fantastic host who was quick to respond and patient with my technology woes. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated with a back patio that was ideal for sipping coffee and snacking on provided goodies. This is exactly what I look for in a house rental—it allowed us to soak up some of the character of the region while also being cozy and affordable. Absolutely delightful!
