CHARMING LARGE GUEST SUITE AND HORSE BOARDING IN TANQUE VERDE VALLEY

Tucson Studio Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps two adults, comes without full kitchen due to zoning regulation

Our guest suite is located on our three and a half acre property and separated from our main home for complete privacy and quiet. The suite is 700 square feet with 9' ceilings for the living and sleeping areas with a generously sized 3/4 bath, large walk in closet, and a large covered porch. We have free WiFi access. A full kitchen is not available so we cannot allow toaster ovens or hotplates to be put in use due to the lack of range hood and sink facility to do dishes. However we do have indoor and outdoor tables and chairs and disposable plates, glasses, and silverware and ceramic coffee cups, a 4.5 cu ft. refrigerator,coffee maker and grinder with Trader Joe's French roast beans, teas, sodas, and complimentary Chardonnay and Merlot wines from northern California.

Close by we have four fast food places, the best coffee shop for coffee and pastries and a huge gathering spot for bicyclists, an Irish pub, an Italian deli and sandwich place and three dinner restaurants, notably the new Mexican restaurant Rancho Rustico, which is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Tucson.

Traveling to or through Tucson with your horses? Horse boarding for up to three horses is available in our barn with individual inside and outside stalls, automatic watering systems and individual raised feeders, gated common corrals, and a gated common arena. Total arena and corral area is approximately one acre-great for full horse workouts.

An ideal location for visiting gem show buyers or sellers, visiting bicyclists, golfers or anyone wanting to be within a very short distance to dozens of golf courses, the top of Mount Lemon, Sabino Canyon, the Saguaro National Park East, or any of the attractions south and east of town - Colossal Caves, Karchner Caverns, bird watching in Patagonia, or the historic towns of Tombstone and Bisbee Arizona. A twenty minute drive puts you at Campbell and Skyline roads where you will find Gallery Row and some of the finest dining in Tucson.

About Thomas Sweeney

My wife and i have owned our property for nine 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 Sweeney purchased this studio in 2004

Incredible casita and hosts!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations, location and price. The bed was insanely comfortable, the space was large with great furnishings/art work, and the extra touches (complimentary wine, cold water, coffee beans, etc.) allowed us to quickly sink into our vacation mindset. The property is literally down the street and one turn from Catalina Highway for easy access up to Mt. Lemmon. Tom and his wife were easily accessible for recommendations and questions, but allowed us complete space and privacy. I highly recommend staying here. Enjoy!!

Great Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little place for a couples getaway weekend. It is a quiet studio with some awesome views. Tom was curious and stayed a little later than he should have because we were running late. The art that is displayed is some of the best that I’ve seen. If you are looking for someplace that is close to everything but still secluded this is it. We took a drive up to Summerhaven and the leaves were starting to change color, nice to see. We will be back and I’ve already told a few folks about this place.

Tanque Valley Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This guest house exceeded our expectations. In fact, we booked a return visit two weeks after our initial stay. The main room is large, the rear patio is perfect for sitting and enjoying the scenery and the pool is beautiful. The mountain views are just as the pictures show. The owners have provided fresh coffee beans, coffee makers, extra shower supplies, XM radio, cd's, dvd's, books -- anything to make your stay as special as possible. The "casita" was extremely clean (unlike our last VRBO). The owner answered any and all our questions and recommended restaurants, etc., but left us to enjoy our time. There is no doubt that we would recommend this VRBO to family and friends.

Guest Suite just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. We spent early mornings on the front porch, which is secluded and quiet before going on hikes. We recommend to any couple looking for a cute, quiet place to stay that isn't a hotel! The owner Thomas was friendly and helpful when we first arrived.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5
The location is peaceful and beautiful. The casita is private with a patio looking out over the mountains. The interior is large and light filled. It was a special place that was filled with the owner's paintings of the Tucson area and the southwest desert.

The casita has a comfortable chair and sofa and a good TV and stereo with good music! The kitchen in an efficiency with a microwave and refrigerator.

We traveled for a month throughout the southwest and many casitas have no comfortable place to relax in the evening and lack a private patio to enjoy the sunsets. We enthusiastically recommend this casita!

Way better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5
This was resort living at a great price! The owners have created a clean, quiet, cozy little guest house in one of the most beautiful areas of Tucson. I had a wonderful time in this rental, the place was spotless, very user friendly, and so charming and restful. Easy access to dining and entertainment as well as hiking, biking, and sight seeing. The listing was accurate, photos are descriptive, the owners were helpful and I would highly recomend this spot to a lone traveler or a couple. Job well done!

Notes:
With the coffee grinder we include dark french roast beans from Trader Joes. Our main home pool is available for use on a seasonal basis and is fenced off separately and actually is closer to guest home than the main house. We have no kitchen facility, however a table and chairs for having a meal are provided with many take out restaurants nearby. We clean upon request and provide clean towels every third day.We will consider one small dog but it must remain with you at all times-there is no safe outdoor space to leave it because of possibility of encounters with coyotes or bobcats. We also stock free bottled water. Also available complimentary upon request at time of booking, is a selection of wine or beers from our list. Check in time is 3pm check out is 11am but is flexible if there is no reservation coming in or leaving on the same day. There is no smoking allowed on site. We would prefer to rent to a maximum of two adults but will consider children and pets upon request.
