About the Property

1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 3

This updated 1950's style luxury guest house has 730 sq ft of indoor space, and a 320 sq ft outdoor living room. The spacious bedroom includes a new top of the line king size bed, a cozy sitting area with a 32' flat screen television (premium cable, DVR, and DVD), and black out shades. Every detail of comfort and relaxation has been attended, from reading lights, to lap top table and iPhone docking station. The separate kitchen has a range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, full size refrigerator, mountain spring drinking water, a table for four, and everything you need for cooking wonderful meals at home. The full size closet, shelves and cabinets provide plenty of space to accommodate even the most indiscriminate packer! Because the weather is so inviting, the outdoor living room is furnished with heavy wood and cushioned sofa and chairs, perfect for a nap in the shade, or morning coffee and reading.
The best thing about it, however, is the location! Just 1.8 miles from the U of A, and a 5 minute drive to downtown restaurants, museums and galleries. Hi Corbett baseball field is a half block away, and a five mile exercise path is fifty yards from the front door. Walk to the movies, a restaurant for dinner, Starbucks, the zoo, or the rose garden in Reid Park in 10 to 15 minutes. Also within a half mile are 2 great public golf courses, a large public tennis facility, public swimming pool and therapy pool. A bike path runs in front of the house, and several bus stops are nearby, within easy walking distance.

Car: Not Necessary

Located on a quiet natural arroyo (rainwater wash), see lots of wildlife including migrating birds, hawks, coyote, and javelina in the front yard! Just a half block from Reid Park, you can walk the 5 mile exercise path, visit the zoo, play golf or tennis, see a UA baseball game, stroll through the rose garden, see a concert at the amphitheater, visit the duck pond, or have a picnic in the shade. Starbucks is a half mile away at El Con Mall, as well as a Cinemark movie theater, Target, In-n-out, and many other shops and restaurants. University of Arizona is 1.8 miles away-- be at a basketball or football game in 5 minutes. Downtown Tucson restaurants, museums, and galleries are also just a five minute car ride. This guest house is located on the bike path, and two bus stops are within a 5-10 minute walk. A perfect central hub for visiting the gem show, and 1 hour from the Nogales, Mexico border.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We love Tucson: The great weather, the people, the restaurants, and all the activities available to us here in Southern Arizona. We have lived here for 15 years, and continue to find great beauty in the landscape and lots of joy in the laid back lifestyle of the 'Old Pueblo.'

Why the Owner Chose Tucson, AZ, USA:
The neighborhood is actually Colonia Solana, but that isn't a VRBO subcategory for Tucson. Just across Country Club, the western border of our neighborhood, is Sam Hughes. We love this historic neighborhood. With the arroyo across the street, we see lots of wildlife, and it feels like we are out in nature, when really, there couldn't be a more central location to access the action of Tucson living.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The homes in this area are on 1+ acre lots, and situated well for privacy. With access to everything close by, we spend very little time in the car, and lots of time outdoors enjoying the natural and cultivated landscape.
