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.

Please see my other listing, 322155.

The two-story loft apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 full bath. It comes completely furnished, with WiFi, 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.

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.

Fantastic location, cute, safe, cozy, clean.

  • 4 of 5

Had a terrific stay at this cozy carriage house. Location superb for walking downtown and to campus museums and events. Coffee shops, restaurants, bars, markets are two or three blocks away. Comfortable, clean, easy parking, welcoming. Enjoyed the sitting area in front to soak up some sun. Perfect for 2 people; we had a third person for a few nights, which was fine but wouldn’t be comfortable for longer stay. Would definitely stay again because of convenience of location!

Cute room with loft

  • 3 of 5

The big problem is that the on demand "hot" water was sketchy. Water was slow to warm and was never more than lukewarm in the kitchen sink. The lukewarm quickly changed to cold out of the faucet. I heated water on the stove so I could wash the dishes. Water in shower was a little warmer but only for a short time.

Also, we could not find instructions to operate the main room heater in the well organized files. Loft heater came on and off automatically; main room did not. As a result, we were cold some mornings. When called on phone, Owner solved arrival problems promptly. Location was great. Parkng was great. Easy walk to local 4th Avenue shops and restaurants, U of A, and even downtown. Short drive to grocery. Well equipped kitchen. Plenty of linens and pillows.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind remarks. I'm so sorry you didn't contact me sooner about the problems you were having! The hot water heater is easily controlled by a knob that turns. It's located in the closet under the stairs, inside the apartment. As for the main room heater, it works the same as the upstairs only the remote is a newer model. I'll make sure the instructions are more complete. Thanks for your input! Please come back soon!
