We recently stayed at the glass cottage during our time in Tucson to perform and celebrate our marriage. There is no way to describe the awe that occurs when you first roll up to the property - it is aesthetically breathtaking. We took the time to wander around both buildings that comprise the entire home and explore the surrounding desert landscape before moving in.
Once we started arranging our personal belongings we realized how completely functional the space is. There are more than enough hidden storage areas to hold your items and avoid cluttering the beautiful space. We appreciated the fireplace being in the bedroom and made sure to take advantage of it every evening. The shower makes it very fun to get cleaned up because it provides the allusion of being outside in the desert. Waking up to the sunrise every morning was more peaceful that the grievance that an alarm causes.
There is a Fry’s grocery store, Walgreens, multiple retail necessities, and even an Eegie’s within a 5 minute drive. Make sure to buy groceries and make use of the fully equipped kitchen. There is a coffee maker, French press, grinder, juicer, pots/pans, dinnerware, silverware, grill & accessories, oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, and MORE. There is no better place to spend breakfast, lunch, and dinner than the spot facing East and designated separately from the bedroom. We even brought a guitar and must say that the acoustics in BOTH halves of the home were absolutely incredible.
Make sure you take a stroll around the property. You have a generous amount of space to do so without intruding on the neighbors. The area is full of exotic plants and you feel as if you are taking a tour through the desert botanical gardens. Thank you for creating this space so that folks like us are able to experience a true architectural piece of art surrounded by beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains.
