VACATION RETREAT IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN TUCSON

Tucson Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 + child

Our beautifully renovated 5-room apartment is located in one of Tucson's oldest neighborhoods, just blocks from the Heart of Downtown Tucson. The historic, turn-of-the-century building, was built by the Railroad Comapny in 1907, and is loaded with plenty of Old-World Charm.

This 750 sq.ft. furnished rental offers something enchanting, private, and relaxing for yourself and your companion, & is a perfect retreat for business visitors, couples on vacation, and parents visiting students.

The fun and warmth of its five rooms come from an eclectic mix of Southwest, Mission, Old West & Mexican decor, reflecting the contrasting cultures that have blended in Tucson. Each room's unique decor boasts tall windows, transoms, crown moldings, ceiling fans, hardwood floors, and 10-ft.ceilings. The apartment is authentically inviting & comfortable, and furnished with modern conveniences, including wi-fi, CD player, flat screen TV & DVD player, thermostat-controlled air conditioners.

Armory Park has been undergoing major redevelopment as an Arts District during the past 10 years. In addition to an actual park and senior center center, the neighborhood houses the Theater of Music & Art, Tucson's Carnegie Library (now the Childrens' Museum), the Center for the Performing

Arts (in the old Catholic Church across the street), Beowulf Alley, and many galleries, shops, cafes, & restaurants.

Walking visitors can enjoy old homes in the 30-block Armory Park District, & in neighboring historic districts - the Old Barrio, El Presidio, & the Mansions of Main Street. There are organized walking tours of these areas as well.

The Tucson Community Center, downtown businesses & government buildings, the railroad station, the hub for Tucson's bus system, the Visitors Center and the Downtown YMCA are all located just blocks away. It is a few minutes-drive to the 4th Avenue Arts District, University of AZ Main Campus, Pima Community College, Z Mansion, the Stillwell House, & University Medical Center.

The rental is offered in compliance with section 3604(c) of the Federal Fair Housing Act (visit HUD.gov), which prohibits a discriminatory preference for a rental based on Race

or color, National origin, Religion, Sex, Familial Status, or Handicap/Disability.

LOCATION WITH GREAT WALK SCORE.

  • 5 of 5
I stayed 2 months, from Oct 15 thru Dec 15, and found the apartment very clean and well supplied, there is unique southwest decoration style keeping with the age of the home. Neighbors were quiet and a pleasant. The landlords were friendly and very helpful, with prompt response to any call.
I had a front row seat, on the front porch, for the El Tour de Tucson bike race.
It was great to be within walking distance of many things I enjoy ( walk score is 85). I walked to a symphony performance, local live theatre, multiple restaurants, the Y, the public library, museums, several art galleries, coffee shops and to a local drawing studio where I took classes. I walked downtown to watch the All Souls Procession and participated in the Armory Park Home Tour (both of which I would recomend.) The 4th Avenue Street Fair, Amtrak station and local bus center are also in walking distance.
Can't wait to get back and enjoy more sunshine in a wonderful location. (Home town Seattle, WA)

LOVED STAYING HERE. EXCELLENT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My adult daughter and I stayed here for a week. It is an excellent location. Within walking distance of downtown, shops, museums and restaurants. Parking is right in front of the building.

The apartment is clean, well maintained and cozy. According to Nancy, the owner, there was a recent renovation which closed in the sun room, making it a nice size bedroom. Now there are two private sitting rooms. The kitchen was the best stocked of all the rentals I've rented on HomeAway. Everything you could possibly need including plastic wrap, bags, laundry detergent, spices and much more.

Nancy is a wonderful owner. Friendly, helpful and eager to help in any way. I highly recommend her property.

The double bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. My daughter (who is 30) slept on the air mattress. That was the only downside. Air mattresses tend to deflate during the night, making them uncomfortable. My suggestion would be to get a futon which would be more comfortable. If two single adults rent the apartment, having two comfortable "beds" is essential.

If you like the outdoors and hiking, I suggest the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. There are great hiking trails and lots of things to do for families. I also enjoyed the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park, West. If you go to the Desert Museum, make sure you see the 10 AM Raptor Show!

I love Tucson and hope to return!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week in this home and loved it. The neighborhood and location are great, and the apartment itself was so homey and charming. The owner has taken care to make sure that you have everything you need and are comfortable and taken care of. I would definitely stay here again if I am back in Tucson.

MORE THAN WE HAD HOPED

  • 5 of 5
What you see is less than what you get. The photos show a beautifully-decorated and quaint apartment and the written description is very accurate. But it is much more than that. It is delightful, comfortable, very clean, has all necessary amenities and is very well-located. The bottom line is that the owner cares, is proud of this project and has every right to be. We will be back.

The neighborhood is as splendid as the apartment. Armory Park began as a military plaza in downtown Tucson, but in 1920, when the Transcontinental Rail Road reached Tucson, the area transformed into a residences inhabited by prominent Rail Road executives, affluent entrepreneurs, & working-class people. The neighborhood became a mix of Victorian, Tudor, Queen Anne, Spanish Colonial, Mission, & bungalow- style structures.

This historical building is located just blocks from the Tucson Community Center, downtown businesses & government buildings, the railroad station, the hub for Tucson's bus system, and three culturally-rich historic neighboring districts filled with homes, museums, live theatre, shops, restaurants and churches. It is minutes away from the 4th Avenue Arts District, University of AZ Main Campus, Pima Community College, and the University Medical Center.

The downtown location is perfect for work & play.

Other Activities: shopping, arts, hiking, rock climbing, wildlife viewing, spa, Downtown YMCA
