If you like, we can do a pre-arrival shopping of food and beverages on a cost/hourly basis.

If you will be here for any of the holidays, we can also supply decorations and have the place festively adorned for your arrival on a cost/hourly basis as well.

                                                              Cute room with loft

                                                              Stan H.Purcellville, Virginia

                                                              The big problem is that the on demand "hot" water was sketchy. Water was slow to warm and was never more than lukewarm in the kitchen sink. The lukewarm quickly changed to cold out of the faucet. I heated water on the stove so I could wash the dishes. Water in shower was a little warmer but only for a short time.

                                                              Also, we could not find instructions to operate the main room heater in the well organized files. Loft heater came on and off automatically; main room did not. As a result, we were cold some mornings. When called on phone, Owner solved arrival problems promptly. Location was great. Parkng was great. Easy walk to local 4th Avenue shops and restaurants, U of A, and even downtown. Short drive to grocery. Well equipped kitchen. Plenty of linens and pillows.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for your kind remarks. I'm so sorry you didn't contact me sooner about the problems you were having! The hot water heater is easily controlled by a knob that turns. It's located in the closet under the stairs, inside the apartment. As for the main room heater, it works the same as the upstairs only the remote is a newer model. I'll make sure the instructions are more complete. Thanks for your input! Please come back soon!

                                                              Fantastic location, cute, safe, cozy, clean.

                                                              Had a terrific stay at this cozy carriage house. Location superb for walking downtown and to campus museums and events. Coffee shops, restaurants, bars, markets are two or three blocks away. Comfortable, clean, easy parking, welcoming. Enjoyed the sitting area in front to soak up some sun. Perfect for 2 people; we had a third person for a few nights, which was fine but wouldn’t be comfortable for longer stay. Would definitely stay again because of convenience of location!

                                                              Clean and comfortable

                                                              Exactly what I expected from the pictures and description

                                                              Loved the carriage house, loved the location. Just perfect. Susan was on top of things, checked in with me to make sure everything was alright and was ever so courteous and kind. Definitely will stay there again if I come back to Tucson.

                                                              So easy to stay here and convenient to great places!

                                                              We have been staying at this and its neighbor apartment for a few years when we visit family in Tucson. It's so easy to get to/from the airport that it's hard to want to stay anywhere else for that reason, but then the property is so charming, and so cozy. And if you want to do anything in the "old" 4th Ave neighborhood, you'll have free parking when you stay here (walk to 4th Ave), which is a big value! We're already booking our trip for next year!
