About Penny

Dennis and Penny love having people stay in the guest house. It is a wonderful way to show off the city we love to others. We live in the main house so are close by to answer questions. Dennis has lived in Tucson since he was 7 and has seen many changes in the 40+ years he has been here. Penny came to Tucson in 1993 and can't imagine living anywhere else. We've been renting our guest house since 2005 and hope you'll be one of our future guests.

Penny purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Penny chose Tucson

We didn't plan to buy a vacation rental. When the 4th bedroom of our house turned out to be its own house we decided to make that adorable little house into a vacation rental.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our guest house is centrally located in Tucson, minutes from any area attraction, shopping, restaurants and the university. We often walk to dinner at a locally owned restaurant or to do shopping. We're in an established neighborhood by a small park that is a great place to sit and read a book, play a little basketball or use the exercise equipment. We love the mild temperatures Tucson has to offer and the beautiful mountains and cacti.

Wonderful stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Tucson at Penny and Dennis' Guest House. It was very well stocked with all sorts of thoughtful items. It was also comfortable and was very handy to all the places we visited. We would recommend this property to anyone and would stay here if we were to visit Tucson again.

Owner's Response: We were so glad to meet the two of you. You left the guest house neat and tidy which we appreciate. Tucson provided you wonderful January weather for your many hikes and visit to the Desert Museum. Though we don't get to the control the weather, we were glad you had perfect weather for your visit.

Cozy and Private

  • 4 of 5

Penny and Dennis were great hosts/landlords. They were both very nice and always available for any issues that might come up, yet they also gave me plenty of privacy. The house was very well stocked with plenty of linens and towels. An unexpected surprise was the additional products they supplied; toilet tissue, paper towels, kleenex, cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. The queen size bed had a memory foam pad on top of a good mattress and was very comfortable. Both of my guests who used the sofa sleeper reported that it was adequate and comfortable. There was a memory foam pad to use with it as well. Plenty of pots and pans and dishes for my use along with several appliances. The neighborhood was quiet and seemed very safe. There was a nice little park a block away; great for morning walks. It was handy to grocery stores, a variety of churches and many restaurants. My overall experience was better than expected and I will certainly put this place on the top of my list for future stays.

Comfortable, private and great central location.

  • 5 of 5

So many times when you travel it's hard to find a place where you can relax and kick up your feet. This property lets you do that. It has all the convenience of home, comfy bed, furniture you can nap in and rest your body after a day of hiking at Mt. Lemmon. Great central location to all of Tucson. Kitchen is well stocked so you can make most anything and a very nice patio to have your morning coffee and watch the morning doves make a nest. The flowers are great too! We will most definitely be using this rental again.

Tucson Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Tucson for a few days. We wanted to ride the bike trail, visit some local attractions, enjoy good meals. This guest house was perfect for our needs. It is close enough to walk to some local restaurants and get to the bike trail without loading up the bikes to get there. Penny and Dennis were very helpful and offered some good suggestions for dining and other activities. The guest house is very quiet and secluded behind the owner's home. Security on the property is very good. I would definitely recommend this property for a couple or small family. If we ever go to Tucson again, I'll check to see if the guest house is available. Thanks to Penny and Dennis for making our visit pleasant and memorable.

Yes! Our guest house was adorable!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was clean, organized, well supplied and very secure. Its central location made it very easy to visit all areas of Tucson. Grocery stores, shops and other venues were easily accessible and nearby.

The one bedroom was perfect for two people. Plus we enjoyed the patio space, grill and the washer/dryer were terrific additions.

The owners Penny and Dennis were very friendly and available. They promptly responded to all of our needs. Also they made us feel very welcome.

Our only regret was that we only stayed one week!

December in Tucson!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Denny and Penneys cottage. Very nice place and very clean. Nice little patio in the back for lunch or chats with friends. Grocery store and restaurants nearby if you are not interested in driving around to eat. They will probably see me again!
