About the property

Beautiful 1 BR 1 BA loft 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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Exactly what I expected from the pictures and description

Loved the carriage house, loved the location. Just perfect. Susan was on top of things, checked in with me to make sure everything was alright and was ever so courteous and kind. Definitely will stay there again if I come back to Tucson.

So easy to stay here and convenient to great places!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this and its neighbor apartment for a few years when we visit family in Tucson. It's so easy to get to/from the airport that it's hard to want to stay anywhere else for that reason, but then the property is so charming, and so cozy. And if you want to do anything in the "old" 4th Ave neighborhood, you'll have free parking when you stay here (walk to 4th Ave), which is a big value! We're already booking our trip for next year!

Great Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Location is off the charts! We walked to 4th Ave, Downtown and the University. The property was in nice condition. It is rather small and the steps to the bedroom/loft could be a challenge for some. I consider this a great value and would absolutely stay here again.
