About thomas k sweeney
My wife and i have owned our property for eleven years. We built the studio/guest house in 2008. I am an oil painter and needed a large studio to do my work and the large guest suite seemed like a natural fit for visiting relatives. For several years we have used home away for our own vacations and so it dawned on us that other people might enjoy our place as much as our relatives have.
thomas k sweeney purchased this Studio in 2004

Bed and chairs not comfortable. Many people may not be bothered but I have back problems
Well, this was an abrupt and startling complaint. I don’t know how we could make table chairs more comfortable. The comment about the bed is is a real surprise. Opinions are subjective, but we very carefully sourced this bed for quality of comfort and sleep. This bed system cost well over $2000. Please read all our other reviews. We have had a wide variety of guests and a few even had back problems, and they loved the bed. Of course we could never promise a guarantee of perfect comfort for people with bad backs. All we can do is our level best in everything we do and provide at our guest suite for all those who choose to make their stay with us.
Beautiful views, relaxing getaway.
The casita is perfect and has everything I was looking for. Surroundings are picturesque, and it is quiet and peaceful.
We always strive and hope for this kind of experience for our guest!
Quiet, reasonable price, lots of space
Enjoyed our stay
And we enjoyed having you!

Private space in fantastic location for hikers / nature exploration
We stayed for three nights in mid-February 2019. The property is situated on the NE corner of greater Tucson, close to the Catalina highway. We stayed here because of the proximity to Mount Lemmon and the Catalina mountains.
The space is detached from the owner's house. The owner is an artist and the walls are decorated with some nice examples of his work. There is plenty of room for two. The main space serves as sleeping quarters, and TV / lounge area. There is a back porch with seating and a BBQ. The kitchen area features a microwave, firdge and freezer. The only "odd" thing is that there is no kitchen sink; we stacked our dirties in a bowl and the owner took care of it from there; it was not an issue. the bathroom is spacious, the water pressure fine and the water hot. it takes a minute to warm up, a long feed pipe to the shower.
We would highly recommend the property if you want to be in this area of Tucson. It's a stretch to the downtown area, but not insurmountable.
We are located in the far northeast corner of Tucson, in the Tanque Verde Valley at the base of Mount Lemmon. The Saguaro National Monument East is a short drive of five miles. Mount Lemmon offers hiking ,back packing, rock climbing, winter skiing, and is world renowned for bicycle riding events. Also you can find various horseback riding facilities nearby and we have a barn and large arena facilities for your use with advance notice.
