Bike to UA/UMC from the cutest house in the best neighborhood in the area. The house has large open living areas with fully-appointed kitchen and plenty of living space. The back patio is giant with a 6-person table, four lounge chairs, grill, and ceiling fans. All rooms are full of light and windows (but with blackout shades!) to the bird- and bunny-friendly yards. The yard and pool are massive, clean, and ready for a bbq! The pool is huge and comes with floaties and toys to enjoy those hot desert afternoons and cooler evenings. Walk to shops, breakfast, and drinks!
The 1350 sf house is open and full of light. Loads of windows make the outdoors part of the house. The massive back patio opens to large flower boxes, a massive pool, and yard. We've included a small propane grill to make the house your perfect getaway.
Tucson is an outdoor town, so we've provided hiking backpacks and bicycles (for a nominal rental charge to service upkeep). Make sure to take advantage. We can give you some ideas if you need them.
The master has a private outdoor area perfect for sipping coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the cool desert evening (or wine in the morning and coffee in the evening--whatever floats your boat). We regularly see desert cottontail rabbits, hummingbirds, and other wildlife in this area.
We planted some vegetables and herbs in the flower gardens in the back yard. Help yourself if anything is ripe while you are there.
Please note that the bed in bedroom 3 is a high-end, full-size futon. Also, we have provided a pack-and-play, but no children under the age of 6 (other than an infant) should stay at the property because the pool is not separately fenced.
The 1-car garage with opener is very handy for the hot desert days--keeping your car shaded is essential when it's 115 outside. Every room (including the living room) has blackout shades, which help to control the light during those bright desert mornings and the heat during the hot days.
The backpacks and bicycles, the pool, the private outdoor space off the master for watching rabbits and hummingbirds, the garage to keep your car cool during the Arizona days, the location so central to so many things including the UA--all make this house special. The pool is NOT separately fenced, therefore, per AZ law, only infants or children older than 6 are allowed in the house.
While we will consider pets, please let us know if you plan to bring a pet. If we agree to host your pet, there is a $100 fee per pet, which will be used for additional deodorizing and cleaning. You are also responsible for any clean up resulting from the pet.
You can easily walk to multiple good restaurants and shops. There are several bus lines within a block of the house. Several will take you to the UA, UMC, TMC, or downtown. With a nominal fee of $10 per bicycle for your entire rental period, you can take our 2 bicycles to any of those same locations (Please let us know at least 7 days prior to arrival if you plan to take the bikes out so that we can ensure that they are ready). Rental cars are plentiful in the area.
Depending on the status of the house, we may be able to accommodate early check-ins (standard check-in is 4pm). Each hour that you would like to check in early is $20 (to acommodate charges from our cleaners), up to a maximum of $100 for check in as early as 9am.
