About Michelle Stubbs

I was born and raised in Tucson. I lived in NYC for many years and returned to Tucson in 1987. My family currently lives in the main house on the property where the guest house is located.

Michelle Stubbs purchased this studio in 2005

Why Michelle Stubbs chose Tucson

I have always loved this area of Tucson. I grew up in a house a few blocks away from this house. The property is like having your own private oasis right in the heart of Tucson. Privacy and close to everything - what more could you ask for?

What makes this studio unique

The main house and guesthouse are located in a truly historic, beautiful neighborhood. The main house was believed to have been built in the 1930s for the first manager of the Arizona Inn. I loved this house the second I walked in the front door. The guesthouse (approximately 700 square feet)was built in 1958. It's a terrific open layout with a sitting area with a fireplace, working/dining area, etc.

Lovely guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Michelle's guesthouse for 4 days and feel very lucky to have found it - and Michelle! The house is lovely and serene, in a beautiful neighborhood. It is very close to the University and convenient to restaurants, shops, and downtown Tucson. It is beautifully appointed - everything has been carefully chosen, all needs provided for, and the artwork is wonderful. Michelle is a pleasure and I very much enjoyed talking to her. I will be certain to stay here again when in Tucson.

Perfect accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Michelle's guesthouse while visiting our son who had recently moved to Tucson for school. It was perfect! Quiet, comfortable, beautifully decorated & perfect location. We loved the dogs, they are so sweet! We definitely plan to stay here next time we visit.

An oasis in hot Tucson!

  • 5 of 5

Guesthouse was quiet and very comfortable - the courtyard we had for our use was fantastic and a great place to relax on a hot Tucson afternoon. We also safely stored our bikes there.

Michelle was a superb hostess and went "above and beyond" to make our stay memorable. We definitely would return!
