About Lenka Chludova

Jeremy French and Lenka Chludova live in Northern California. We work as producers and production managers in the music industry since the 1990s. We earned our Masters Degrees in The Netherlands and in Boston, Massachusetts.

Lenka Chludova purchased this House in 2012

Why Lenka Chludova chose Tucson Estates

We loved the desert from the first moment. We traveled and lived in the Southwest. When Jeremy inherited the property in 2012 from his beloved great-aunt Zaye Chapin, we wholeheartedly knew we needed to keep the house in the family. Zaye was an outstanding, calibre one woman and we honor her gift deeply. Renting the property to vacationers allows us to maintain the house and further her legacy.

What makes this House unique

There are a thousand and one details we love about the Zaye Chapin House. But as far as favorites go it's a toss up between the magnificent 50+ year old palo verde tree that shades the patio, the fresh grapefruits and the hikes through the back gate into the big Cat Mountains.

                                                                    Mike S.

It is roomy, comfortable, completely equipped and a perfect location to see the Desert Museum and other vacation sights. The owners are responsive and helpful. We have stayed at many VHBO locations and this is among the best.

                                                                    Great location and hospitality

                                                                    Nita P.

                                                                    We loved our stay here in December. Owners and housekeeper very gracious when we needed a late night check in after our flight was delayed. Very prompt responses on email and phone messages. Lovely view from back yard and miles of trails to walk. Very safe neighborhood. Nice heated community pool just across the house.

                                                                    House and furnishings are a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. Owners have stocked house with many everyday supplies (paper goods, laundry needs, trash bags, etc.) so you don't need to buy everything.

                                                                    You will enjoy your stay here!

                                                                    We will come again and recommend their residence to all potential guests.

                                                                    Thank You, for making our stay such a pleasantly memorable one !

                                                                    Lois M.

                                                                    Loved the location of this house, right on the edge of the desert yet surrounded by other houses. Walking distance to a very nice pool. Great location for visiting Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. Not far from downtown. But...a bit of a drive to the nearest supermarket.

                                                                    It was comfortable house, well equipped, extremely quiet, lots of birds to observe in the yard.

                                                                    Great Location to tour Tucson/Southern Arizona and excellent hiking!

                                                                    Debbie T.Lexington Kentucky

                                                                    My husband, adult son and I really enjoyed out stay at this location. It really felt comfortable like "home". We were able to walk right outside the door and quickly get into the prettiest area to walk/hike.

                                                                    Was very well equipped for everything you need while there. Owners was very easy to make arrangement with and in accommodating our needs. We want to plan another trip to come back and stay in this location again.

                                                                    I would totally recommend this Great vacation home!
