HISTORIC RESTORED 1880’S ADOBE, CENTRAL, U. A., DOWNTOWN

Tucson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Tucson AZ vacation apartment in Restored historic 1800’s adobe house. Fully renovated and very comfortable. Lots of beautiful redwood trim, hardwood floors and 10 to 15 foot ceilings. Bedroom, den, sitting room, bath and kitchen fully equipped.

The house is centrally located in the historic Iron Horse Neighborhood within walking distance of the University of Arizona campus and to downtown and the historic 4th Avenue retail district.

The vacation apartment is comfortably furnished and includes a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with a queen sized bed, a beautiful restored sitting room with 12-15 foot beam ceiling, pine and redwood paneled Den with flat screen HDTV, internet-ready Sony box, satelitte direct TV cable, and DVD video library with as well as a Queen-sized sofa sleeper, and tiled bath with tub with massage water jets. Off-street parking is provided for compact vehicles as well as on-street parking directly in front of the house.

Pets are welcome and the property includes a small fully fenced private yard with granite patio.

The architectural style of the house is “Transformed Sonoran”, typified by high adobe wall construction with a framed peaked roof. The house was probably built originally as a “railroad house” to house Union Pacific railroad workers in the late 1800’s. Later the house was owned by the western photographer Albert S. Reynolds in the early 1900’s, and was kept in the family until 1987. We purchased the property in 2006 and spent several years restoring the house.

Note: Special restrictions apply for international visitors. Inquiries should include text (i.e. no blank e-mails) and a contact phone number.

GREAT DOWNTOWN LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
Nice little Casita for a short in-town stay. If you are looking for walkability this is a good choice (close to 4th Ave, Congress Street). The place itself is very comfortable, nicely decorated, and very clean. The owner was friendly and easy to contact The house is well furnished and equipped with everything you might need. Only downside is traffic noise - it's located on a very busy street and across from an Ace Hardware store. So if you are looking for an urban, downtown experience and don't mind the busy street, it's a good bet.

RUSTIC LIVING IN CENTRAL LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
Review #7381846 Rustic living in central location

Kind and helpful owners, live in adjoining duplex, sharing front porch. Centrally located near college and within walking distance to health food co-op, some ethnic restaurants and near freeways. On busy corner with minimal traffic noise in marginal neighborhood of low rent apartments. House was tidy, fully supplied with fresh linens, towels, cleaners, silverware, dishes, kitchen utensils, iron, hair dryer, coffee, wine etc. All pans and tea kettle corroded aluminum, except one, so didn't cook there. This place cleverly designed and created to maximize small space. Kitchen storage primarily in refrigerator and several narrow, hard to access, short shelves. Minimal counter/cutting space, even to make sandwich. Big screen TV with many videos in den. Nights and mornings cool and very comfortable with wall heaters in each room. No closets in rental so clever use of sliding tie racks and wall mounted rods, towel racks for curtain holders. Bathroom clean (except for shower curtain); new sink, toilet, tub with jets (limited hot water to fill tub), ample hot water for other needs. Sliding pocket doors enclose bathroom from being in kitchen. Comfortable bedroom with small drawer unit on each side of bed. Hooks to hang clothes. Never used living room except to walk through into den. Moved lamps from living room into den for lighting. Wood paneling on den walls made for 1970's nostalgia and dark room. Available fenced backyard with potted cacti for time in sun. Front yard with antique tools, bridges, flowering plants, rock walls. Centrally located to all parts of town.
Tucson requires auto to get around.

our second year to rent this place. can easily walk to downtown,4th street or UofA campus. fairly priced and kept up because the landlord lives next door. my only complaint was that although the TV had cable, it only got local channels.

BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5
We had another great stay here for four days. We walked to the Children's museum, which was fun for the adults too, and to the Day of the dead parade. I walked to the university. Great location, and the owners know about lots of fun things to do around town!

IT'S ALL ABOUT LOCATION!

It's all about location!

My husband and I recently attended parents week-end at UofA. The location was perfect for a nice .7 mile stroll to campus, and 5 minute walk to all the fun shops. The house was spotless and the master bedroom mattress was perfect. The owner greeted us and also suggested a complimentary bottle of wine to choose from in the kitchen. If you don't want to go out, they probably have over 50 great DVD movies to choose from. Beautiful hardwood floors, jetted tub, lots of windows, for 500 sq. ft, it couldn't have been any nicer!
