About Jill Nunes
Hello! I love sharing my home with guests. I am retired from "many lives" and have been fortunate to have lived in many locations in CA, Seattle, Chicago and Boston. My son lives in Seattle now and I love visiting him the NW. I grew up in Tucson and have returned to my "roots". I particularly enjoy the live music and art scene here. I enjoy my solitude and the peace my home brings me, but I am always available to share stories and Southern AZ places of interest with my guests.
Jill Nunes purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Jill Nunes chose Tucson
My father was the original owner of this property (1978). He loved sunrises and chose the lot so he could enjoy our amazing Tucson sunrises-(Tucson is famous for it's sunsets and they are spectacular here too). I bought the house from his estate in 2003 and have found comfort in caring for the home he loved so much. I really enjoy being so close to town and yet on the edge of our beautiful desert. In 15 minutes you can be at the top of Gates Pass in Saguaro National Park, the view at sunset is breathtaking.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our desert resources are precious. The house uses solar electricity, grey water and water harvesting in the yard to conserve and preserve energy. The large back yard is my favorite spot. I sit high on the hill and the view is expansive. Bird feeders and fountains encourage wild life to visit. I have been lucky to encounter a fox and bobcats in the yard on rare occasions- (don't worry- they are more scared of us than we are of them!- If they see you, they run- but it's a moment you'll always remember).

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place. It was clean, private & Quiet.
The owner is on site & was available for any help we needed. It's in a quiet neighborhood but close to any where you need to go.
I highly recommend this for your stay in Tucson.

Comfortable and private suite
Great place to stay in Tucson. Lovely garden. Host Jill was accommodating and friendly.
It was exactly as advertised. Peaceful and private. Jill was a great hostess and if we needed anything she was right on it. Would highly recommend her property to anyone looking for a small quiet retreat.
Very relaxing and cozy.
The property was very clean and adequate. Jill has provided special touches making the quarters comfy. We especially loved the courtyard. It had a great view of the area. The neighborhood is nice and quiet.
This property was very clean and convenient for our activities. The hostess was very gracious.
Jill's casita was exactly what we needed! It was clean and very convenient for the activities we had in mind in Tucson. Jill was most helpful in directing us to restaurants and shopping destinations. She was so very gracious! We would recommend her and her casita to everyone!
Less than 2 miles to the freeway and downtown, but surrounded by open space and desert, you'll feel like you're "away from it all"... a fifteen minute drive west is Gates Pass with breathtaking views of the Tucson Valley and west valley views. Saguaro National Park, Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson are nearby world class attractions. Hiking/ walking on Tumamoc Hill and A Mountain are 1/4 mile away.
