About Erica K.
An entrepreneur by nature, I have enjoyed the freedom and flexibility that a self directed path can provide. I have loved to travel and annually embark upon both a beach vacation and an exotic destination in a far away continent - you will find exotic mementos from my travels adorn Villa BlancaMariposa and inspire the eclectic sampling of the world within. Growing up in Tucson in this very property, I wanted to name my special bungalow to honor my connection to my mother, my family and the heritage of the house, hence the name Villa Blanca which means white house - where my friends said I lived as a kid. While home in Tucson, I love to landscape, You will see me working on my properties tending to the mesquite trees, Peruvian apple cactus a native willow or assisting guests at Villa Blanca and other homes. I have always enjoyed cooking - entertaining friends and family and hosting many social events, and look forward to hosting you during your stay in Tucson!
Erica K. purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Erica K. chose Sam Hughes
My parents were renting the carriage house house in the 1960's while attending the University of Arizona. Reading an ad in the paper the original owners of Villa Blanca - had listed it for sale - it turned out to be my parents landlords - who enjoyed the young couple so - and sold it to my parents over another buyer. With the assistance of my Grandmother for a down payment, My mother and father moved to the front house and raised us girls - in 2010 Villa Blanca passed through the generations from my grandmother, mother and sister to my self - for me to share with you as Villa Blanca.
What makes this Bungalow unique
I love Villa Blanca with all of my heart - it is a beautiful home full of warmth and truly does hold every memory in life - Christmas trees, Easter bunnies, Thanksgiving Dinners, watching sesame street while laying on the living room floor, cartwheels in the front yard - giggling with friends - walking to school - having breakfast at Rincon market, bicycling to the UofA. Now it's your turn to make some memories and experience the warmth and love of a family home known as Villa Blanca.

Charming and inviting
A perfect place to hang your hat while you visit Tucson and outlying areas. Even without a rental car, I was able to Uber to The Sonora Desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, Mission San Xavier, and Catalina State Park. I also arranged to tour Tombstone and Bisbee. The house was spotless and comfortable, and my host was gracious and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again when I visit The Old Pueblo.
Adorable cottage, great location!

Kerri Ann was a phone call or text away and was very generous with information on great places to eat or visit. We had a lovely, relaxing stay and would highly recommend this place for anyone wishing to be near UofA or downtown. Very nice neighborhood to walk and friendly people.
Bike Loop Getaway
nice well appointed property. walkable to UA/Sun Link stop for excursions to downtown + access to Mountain Blvd bike lane to the bike loop. the bike loop is a 130+ mile trafficless multipurpose loop around Tucson. would definitely come back to this property on next visit to the "Old Pueblo" .
Comfortable and Charming Retreat
This is the second time that we stayed at this property and will, hopefully, not be the last. It is so tastefully decorated and furnished, very private, well maintained inside and out, great location, top quality, comfortable beds and pillows, everything you could ask for in the kitchen, modern appliances, beautiful patio and outside living and entertaining space, and the owner is very accessible and helpful. It is truly a home away from home that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Comfort and Location
Very comfortable. Great location near the U of A.
Another wonderful stay.
This was our third February in Mariposa! Love the feeling of home.
