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.

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 Peter Howell

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!
