About Evelyn Alvarez

This is a managed property for the last 6 years. The owner and I who both like to stay at vacation rentals when we travel, decided to make this property your home away from home. With that spirit and full of delightful attention and intention, we invite you to enjoy this property and care for it while luxuriating in it.

Why Evelyn Alvarez chose Old Fort Lowell

Perfect Tucson location: tucked away yet in-town, a stone's throw to the Foothills and Sabino Canyon, accessible to University of Arizona (UA), and downtown too! Plus very close to many shopping centers and Tucson Medical Center (TMC).

What makes this house unique

Great care went into stocking this home well so that it may be comfortable and inviting. We also stay at vacation rentals and enjoy our stays the most when things match, work, and feel like care/intention went into each element. Whether your first or tenth stay with us, this is how we prepare the house for you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It has been a wonderful stay at the “Tucson Paradise.” Our stay has been short but very relaxing and fun. The house has been comfortable and easy to manage. Thank you for being so accommodating to our furry little friend, Lola. Traveling with our dog isn’t always easy and you made it simple and welcome. Thanks! Michael

Wonderful oasis in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely home while we explored Tucson, the surrounding desert, antiques shops and in particular visited The Heard to see the Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit.

The house is beautiful and well equipped and the pool is simply wonderful!

The location is quiet yet close enough to all that Tucson offers.

Very clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent a long Thanksgiving weekend at this property and it was great. The pool/spa hot tub was lovely and the back yard very private. The house was super, bedrooms and beds very nice and comfortable. The living room was open to the dinning and living room which allowed everyone to participate in both cooking, eating and of course football! It was a great stay and we would recommend it for sure.

A bit of heaven in Tuscon

  • 4 of 5

We choose this property for a family Thanksgiving and it was everything we hoped for. The house was beautiful with all the possible amenities. The pool and hot tub provided hours of family fun. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, but a half mile away are any kind of store you might need.

Our only issue was that the beds in two of the rooms were uncomfortable-uneven and bouncy so some of us did not get a good night's sleep.

Hopefully this can be rectified as this is a wonderful rental.

Tucson Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We needed a place to stay, while in Tucson, for a wedding. We had 6 adults and a 2 year old, in our group. The property was easy to access, and located in a quiet area. The house was very clean and well maintained. It looked as beautiful in person, as it did online. The living room, kitchen and dining area were very spacious, for our whole group to hang out. The house was the perfect size for our group. The pool was enjoyed by all. Evelyn, our contact, was very prompt in getting back to us on any questions. We would love to stay at the property again sometime and would definitely recommend it to our friends and relatives.
