About Debra

Hi, I have lived in Tucson since 1987 in West University neighborhood. It is a very vibrant place, lots of fun and exciting things to do all within walking distance. Besides hosting new and interesting people, I am a blown glass artist, and a Mom.

I love to swim, practice yoga, river rafting, go for long walks or hikes, and work on new glass pieces when I can. Life is full and fun, especially with my daughter who loves the performing arts.

Being a host has allowed me to meet lots of wonderful people, some of them becoming good friends. I am always happy to share my knowledge of Tucson, my favorite places and anything else that will enhance my guest's stay in the ol'Pueblo...

Debra purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Debra chose Tucson

I have always loved and lived in older homes. The construction is solid, unique, with great detailing that you don't normally find in newer buildings. I love the challenge of renovating places with good bones, preserving the old, and adding something new. This is a great neighborhood, West University, one of the oldest in Tucson!

What makes this apartment unique

The proximity to everything Tucson is a major plus. You can walk to most venues, and the rest are a short drive to get there. Easy access to I-10, walkability score of West University neighborhood is very high.

Casa Amarillo West - Fun, Funky Little Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We came to Tucson to hike and visit its unique botanical gardens and nurseries. Casa Amarillo West was the perfect place for the two of us to come back and relax after a day of exploration. We loved preparing our meals in the well-equipped, cute little kitchen while listening to the extensive collection of music provided for us. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the unique bathroom shower was a fun surprise for us. We loved eating our meals at the cozy table for two. We enjoy small, well-designed spaces that offer a unique settings and a taste of the local furnishings and style. While the location is in an edgy neighborhood, we always felt safe and comfortable and appreciated how easy it was to get to other areas of Tucson easily, safely and quickly. Debra was attentive, responsive and her attention to the comfort of her guests showed in many ways from the selection of coffee and teas, to the care taken in making sure the cottage met our needs. We would not hesitate to stay again. Fabulous find!

Convenient Location But A Bit "Industrial"

  • 4 of 5

The casita is convenient to downtown Tucson, the University of Arizona and many tourist sites, but it's on an narrow street/alley behind a not-very-vibrant business district and not far from the railroad tracks and a park with quite a few homeless folks living in it. We got used to the train noises and the homeless folks never bothered us, but the casita was not a place where we wanted to spend a lot of time; we just used it as a "home base" for sleeping and showering. And for that use, the place was a good value. As for interior amenities, the kitchen was adequate, but could have used more silverware; the linens were good, but the bed was softer than we like; and the AC worked fine, but it would have been nice if windows opened and stayed open by themselves (they were in very poor shape).

Casa Amarillo West

  • 5 of 5

Great little place, perfect for 1 or 2 people. Kitchen had everything needed to cook my meals. Very comfortable. Worst part about it was that I had to pack up and go home. Awesome.

Great location for seeing the sights.

The apartment is ideally located for easy access in all directions. You will find some very good restaurants within walking distance toward the University. The apartment is very clean and well equipped with all necessities for a comfortable stay. The owner, Debra, is very accommodating.
