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.

Wonderful home location and owners

This is a really great place in a perfect location if you are visiting the university. Very accommodating owners as well. We will stay again when it's available.

Beautiful guest house in great neighborhood and nice pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a converted artists studio and the guest house is lovely as are the grounds. It is nice to be able to use the pool. I didn't get a chance to use the kitchen as we were busy moving my child back into the dorms. Great for one person or a couple. Michelle is lovely and helpful.

A beautiful, private and peaceful casita!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful casita exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and beautifully appointed with attention to every detail. Everything was sparkling clean upon our arrival. We were very grateful to have a very kind hostess, Michelle, who was there for us when we needed but gave us our privacy as well. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this casita to others. Thank you Michelle!

Wonderful!

Michelle is an excellent host. Great location, extremely clean, and frankly Michelle wants you to be happy and relaxed which is impossible to be. We will return because of her.

Lovely Casita

  • 4 of 5

Our Casita was very nicely appointed and very comfortable for our 6 day stay. Michelle was very helpful with ideas of things to do and also provided an interesting selection of DVD's for our evening showtime. The location calls to drive to the University, the mountains or the canyons for hiking, as well as, to restaurants. We were hoping to be able to walk into town and browse the shops and restaurants, but this was not possible. This was a lovely space but location was not what we had hoped.

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.

The best location for great dining, shopping, museums, the University of Arizona, downtown, the famous yearly Gem and Mineral Show , movies, theater, and the University Medical Center (the list is endless) are all within minutes away. It's also easy to get to The Desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, and the freeway for day trips to Tubac, Nogales, Bisbee and the Biosphere.
