About Taylor & Yuko

Taylor - I'm originally from Oxford Pennsylvania though Arizona has been my home since 1997 and I absolutely love it! Cooking, gardening and reading are just a few of my favorite things to do in my spare time. I love to travel and am very friendly and personable and enjoy meeting new people from all over the United States and beyond. With that said, hosting is something I enjoy very much :)

Motto: " Live for today, Plan for tomorrow, and Learn from Yesterday"

Yuko - Born and raised in Japan until Junior High, went to High school and college in Tucson Az. Just started my apt in Fukuoka as rental , for I plan on returning to Arizona here in the near future, though Fukuoka will always be "home". Keeping my place there keeps me connected for when I return, Which will be 2-3 times annually. Very much a people person, and this Vacation Rental has been rather fun..:)

Together - We make a great team and We look forward to meeting more people via VRBO

Taylor & Yuko purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Taylor & Yuko chose Tucson

This is the adjacent property to my private home, which has another casita behind it that we use as a vacation rental. So if this one isn't open, inquire about the other. With that said, We absolutely LOVE the neighborhood. You can't get any more centrally located to EVERYTHING to do in Tucson ! Close to U OF A, hiking golf, great restaurants, parks, botanical gardens, malls, downtown entertainment etc, while located in a well established quiet neighborhood that was built out in 1940's.

What makes this bungalow unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was a great place to stay while we were in town visiting our son. Thank you for the thoughtful attention to detail in making such a comfortable home away from home. We appreciate it and will definitely plan to stay again if we are back!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it so much we returned. It is very clean, very spacious for a two bedroom, and close to the downtown area. Kitchen is stocked well with appliances and cooking necessities. The bathroom is small but has enough space and is cute and clean.

We had an amazing stay at this charming southwest cottage. There is plenty of room, with up dated features. With a wonderful host, in a great location and an awesome patio, including the delightful landscaping. We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to make a return stay.

Dunbarton, NH

Great little house in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here in April for a mother/daughter trip. Taylor met us at the house upon arrival and gave us a brief tour. Since he didn’t have any guests staying the night before Taylor allowed us to check in early. I was especially grateful for this since we had had a very long journey from the east coast.

From the beginning of the reservation process to the end of our stay Taylor was very responsive, always quick to answer questions, and made us feel welcome. The photos on the VRBO website are accurate and the backyard is a lovely spot to relax and listen to the birds. We also spotted a couple of rabbits, which thrilled my daughter since we never see them where we live. We did so much sightseeing in the short time we were there that I didn’t get to enjoy the yard as much as I would have liked.

There is a BBQ grill, but we didn’t use it, only because at home my husband does all the BBQing so I’m more comfortable cooking inside! I really appreciated the washer, dryer, and being able to hang clothes out on the line. We didn’t have any trouble with the appliances, but I have no doubt that if we did Taylor would have been right on top of things! Having the built in ice-maker in the fridge was fantastic. It was quite hot during our stay, but the AC worked great the one time we used it. The rest of the time we just kept the doors open to let the breeze in and we were very comfortable.

The home was centrally located to all the sights including Mt. Lemmon, Saguaro National Park, Pima Air & Space Museum, Kartchner Caverns, and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. As a mother traveling with her teenage daughter we felt very safe here. The property is well-maintained and Taylor clearly takes pride in this home. If we ever get back to Tucson I would definitely want to stay here again and I have no reservations recommending this vacation home to others.

Taylor does a super job keeping clean and comfortable homes. We felt it was our home for a week and enjoyed Tucson a lot. MT Lemmon, Desert Museum, Catalina state park were interesting and in bloom. Beautiful.
