private, well equipped, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Lee and Laura were perfect hosts...not hovering, just very responsive. The guest suite, with many well thought out and aesthetically pleasing touches, is in a Tucson desert garden. Location is close to wonderful hiking in the mountain park as well as restaurants and stores.

Felt like home. Hosts became friends. Charming casita in beautiful setting. Grocery stores and shopping 2 miles away. Across the street from The Catalina Mountains, hiking trails, etc. Would recommend to anyone.

Thanks Lee, Laura, son, and doggies!

Quiet, comfortable space!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nicely detailed studio. Kitchenette is well equipped for simple meal preparation. Very quiet neighborhood. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Close to shops and grocery stores. Not far from several trail systems on the west and north sides of Tucson. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone or a couple seeking a quiet, relaxing space to stay in Tucson.
