                                                                This cute little early-50's duplex has a beautiful, fully fenced back courtyard with a pergola-shaded wrought-iron table & chairs, BBQ, desert plants and landscaped area, and solitude. The cottage itself is fairly basic, but well decorated, with pretty much everything you need except for, maybe, a dishwasher. It was perfect for the two of us, our beloved dog, and for a weekend, a sister-in-law, who slept comfortably on the hide-a-bed pull-out couch.

                                                                It's within walking distance of the Sun-Trans trolley line, and the university, and an easy drive to grocery and all other shopping. The neighborhood is good for walking in the evening, and feels safe.

                                                                We liked it so much that we've already re-booked for next year!
