LOVELY RETREAT IN CENTRAL TUCSON HISTORIC DISTRICT

Tucson Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully Renovated 1 BR 1 BA Apartment in Early-1900's Carriage House

This light-filled, cheerful getaway is located in the heart of the West University Historic District, 4 blocks to the U of A campus, and 1 block from the 4th Avenue retail district. Walk to downtown, restaurants, shopping, and arts events. Within 10 minutes of Reid Park, home of the Tucson Zoo, the Randolph and Dell Urich golf courses, and a lovely outdoor pool and Rec Center.

All outdoor activities abound, or just enjoy sunny Tucson from the private, walled yard. Porch/patio is perfect for outdoor dining or just basking in the sun.

Please see my other listings, 322155 and 387617.

The two-story loft apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 full bath. It comes completely furnished, with telephone, cable TV, DVD, CD stereo, iron/ironing board, ceiling fan, air conditioning and heat. The kitchen is fully equipped, including stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, cooking accessories, dishes and silverware. The apartment sleeps 1-4, with a Queen-size bed in the bedroom upstairs and a full-size fold-out couch in the living room. All bed and bath linens provided. Laundry facilities available at several local Laundromats. Rent includes all utilities, cable and WiFi.

If you like, we can do a pre-arrival shopping of food and beverages on a cost/hourly basis.

If you will be here for any of the holidays, we can also supply decorations and have the place festively adorned for your arrival on a cost/hourly basis as well.

Wonderful Location and Perfect for Two

We had a wonderful week! The carriage house was just right for the two of us, it had everything we needed. The courtyard was a great spot for morning coffee or relaxing in the early evening after exploring Tucson or the surrounding area. The wonderful eclectic 4th Avenue shopping district is within walking distance, a block away. There is a very nice Co-op, Food Conspiracy Co-op, for groceries, various stores for all sort of other shopping plus a number of nice places to eat. I would also suggest Time Market, 3rd and University for beer, wine or a slice of pizza. However we mostly picked up groceries and ate in. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking.
The carriage house is also close to downtown or if you are looking to head out into the surrounding area, close to highway access. Once the light rail system is up and running in the fall of 2013, access all over the city will be even better.

We are looking forward to a return trip and would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable, affordable and cozy

We stayed for 10 days. The listing had accurately described the carriage house and the listing pictures were true. Opening the door on the day of arrival, we found the place warm and welcoming. On the coffee table was a basket of tourist brochures as well as a welcome letter and instructions on how to operate the heating system (remember we were there in December!) In the fridge was a full Brita water pitcher--a nice additional touch.
The location is in a residential neighborhood, quiet, safe and well within walking distance to downtown Tucson. Shopping was close by. Off street parking meant our vehicle was close by to unload our luggage.
Susan, although not there in person, was quick to respond to all of our emailed questions. She gave us good advice and recommendations.

COZY AND CONVENIENT CARRIAGE HOUSE

  • Submitted: May 19, 2012

This is the place to stay if you're looking for convenience, cleanliness and comfort.
The location if quiet yet a very easy walk to eateries, shops and markets, close to the U of A, downtown attractions, etc. Susan, the owner, is a great source of info on the area (restaurants, sights to see, where to shop, etc). The carriage house has a wonderful exposed brick wall which lends a lot of character, the loft bedroom is comfortable, you'll have both privacy (a separate entrance) and convenience.

A wonderful holiday in this Tucson carriage house

My wife and I have just spent a week in this charming carriage house. I thought it would be helpful to future holiday makers to describe the property and the things you can do in the area.

Before our stay, I had considerable contact with the owner. The responses I received were prompt and considered, inspiring confidence that we were going to have a most enjoyable stay.

The property is accurately described and we found it to be very clean and comfortable. The living space downstairs is spacious and welcoming. The kitchen, whilst small, provides every facility needed for a self-catering holiday. Upstairs, the bedroom is smartly furnished with plenty of storage. The bathroom is modern with a shower and bath. The wifi proved to be a real boon – keeping in touch with family was a breeze.

Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of walking. There are many opportunities to participate in these pursuits. Within a few miles there are state parks providing scope for hiking, from short, easy trails to long, arduous ones. In the Tucson heat, we chose the easier options! Both Sabino Canyon and Madera Canyon were well worth the visit. We also enjoyed trips to the Sonora Arizona Desert Museum, Biosphere 2 near Oracle and the Tohono Chul Park in town. For those interested in the ‘Wild West’, Tombstone is a 90 minute drive and well worth the visit. One thing which you may wish to purchase is the Tucson Attractions Passport - it's a no-brainer for anyone visiting the top attractions. With a trip to the Biosphere2 costing more than the passport it pays for itself with just one excursion as you get one free admission with one paying visitor.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of the warmest of welcomes and a carefree holiday in this interesting area.

We stayed at the carriage house on a weekend visit to see our children at UA. The location could not be better, just blocks away from school. The unit was very clean and comfortable, everything that we needed was at hand.The owners were very accurate with their description and helpful when needed. We will definitely stay there on future trips, thanks and go cats.
