About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our 900 square foot guest house is a garden sanctuary in the center of Tucson. It has been renovated, but still maintains the feel of an older home. It has an eclectic feel, and is very artistic; is within a few minutes of most commercial, retail and university areas, and within 30 minutes of most things Tucson. There are 3 lush secluded patios, an horno (mud oven), gas grill and smoker, vegetable garden and small fountain that are available for your enjoyment. We have 2 nice mountain bikes that are available for in-town commuting, or for a nature ride on nearby trails. While this is on shared property with the owners, the house is completely separate, and has the feel of a private home.
