It was completed in 10 weeks.

Definitely Overrated

  • 1 of 5

We were hugely disappointed with our stay at the Copper House. The description portrays better accommodations than we experienced. We didn't realize that we were going to have to access the property from an alleyway in a marginal area of Tucson until we received the welcome email and instructions from the owner AFTER we booked our stay. Once we arrived and came through the locked gate we realized that this property sits in the backyard of the home that actually has a street address on Copper. But we thought, well we can just stay here for 2 nights. The first night we arrived back at the property at 8:30pm. The solar lights that are supposed to light the parking area did not work. We thought, we will just put our heads down and go to sleep. We were awakened at 1:00am to our car alarm going off. We both shot straight out of bed and immediately felt a threat. We could definitely turn the car alarm off with the key fob, but did not feel safe going out to investigate. We though someone might have set the car alarm off so that we would come out of the gate. You can then imagine what was going through our minds. We even thought if we had to call 911, how would they find us in this alleyway. I immediately contacted the owner through HomeAway and explained our concern. I told Michael we would not be staying a second night and would find a different place the stay for our second night in Tucson. His message back to me said, "Very sorry to hear of your sleepless night and car alarm nightmare. I will happily refund your two nights payment. I can have Dixie stop by if you like if you are still there. Please give me a ring." I called him back and he again stated we would receive a full refund. We left that morning. We then received this message the next day, "I have authorized VRBO to credit your account $137.00. This is the maximum that the system would allow. I regret that you had a sleepless night but car alarms do go off without explanation at times." He completely dismissed the threat/concern we felt. Safety should be an owner's top priority, but not in this case. Michael said one thing and did another. I'm sure there is a way to contact Homeaway to make arrangements for a full refund. He chose not to. I sent a follow up message stating our disappointment, but we haven't heard from the owner again. It has now been a week. I would definitely ask the owner for an address before booking so you can do research to ensure you feel safe in this area. We didn't.

Owner's Response: Reviews have a purpose and guests are free to write what they choose. Nine out of ten of my guests rave about their experience and review accordingly. It is my goal to be accommodating and fair thus a refund was given for over half of the reservation amount. Car alarms have been know to go off. This is the first report of such. There were no signs of forced entry to the car and in 9 years of operation there has been no reports of car damage or other mischievous behavior. There is ample exterior lighting at the entrance in addition to the solar powered fixtures. Please read all reviews and property descriptions and you'll be assured of a relaxing stay.

Really nice studio home, perfect for weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent our one year anniversary weekend at this property and had a blast. Some of our favorite things were the very comfortable bed and the spa-like shower head. The windows are amazing, during the day all you need is natural light. The property is very private and makes you forget you're in the middle of a neighborhood. We definitely plan on coming back!

Modern and Secluded in the Heart of Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Im going to miss this quiet little place. The natural light comes in from every side making you feel like you are in some bright illuminated cloud. The fenced in courtyard really gives you a feeling of privacy and the neighborhood itself is very quiet, yet close to amenities. There is also private parking for two. The inside of the house is ultra-modern with some retro charm in the decor. I would definitely stay here again. Just being inside the house was one of the highlights of my trip.

Very accommodating & dogs loved it

  • 4 of 5

Made a last min reservation that was handled very swiftly and with ease.

The pictures are true to what is offered. Everything was easy to find within the home and the yard space was nice for the dogs to quietly enjoy.

The reality of the Copper House confirms its promise. Clean, modern, filled with natural light, the Copper House feels like an oasis from the humdrum of daily life. Quality shines in every detail. I arrived, alone, for the first 10 days of our three week stay; my boyfriend flew in later, but I felt safe within the private fence and quiet neighborhood. We plan to return, and offer our highest recommendations for the Copper House.
