Tucson AZ vacation apartment in Restored historic 1800’s adobe house. Fully renovated and very comfortable. Lots of beautiful redwood trim, hardwood floors and 10 to 15 foot ceilings. Bedroom, den, sitting room, bath and kitchen fully equipped. The property accommodates a maximum of two adults and two related children.
The house is centrally located in the historic Iron Horse Neighborhood within walking distance of the University of Arizona campus and to downtown and the historic 4th Avenue retail district.
The vacation apartment is comfortably furnished and includes a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with a queen sized bed, a beautiful restored sitting room with 12-15 foot beam ceiling, pine and redwood paneled Den with flat screen HDTV, internet-ready Sony box, satelitte direct TV cable, and DVD video library with as well as a Queen-sized sofa sleeper, and tiled bath with tub with massage water jets. Off-street parking is provided for compact vehicles as well as on-street parking directly in front of the house.
Pets are welcome and the property includes a small fully fenced private yard with granite patio.
The architectural style of the house is “Transformed Sonoran”, typified by high adobe wall construction with a framed peaked roof. The house was probably built originally as a “railroad house” to house Union Pacific railroad workers in the late 1800’s. Later the house was owned by the western photographer Albert S. Reynolds in the early 1900’s, and was kept in the family until 1987. We purchased the property in 2006 and spent several years restoring the house.

We purchased this house in 2006 and have been restoring and renovating it since then. The house is divided into 2 apartments and we occupy one of these. We manage the vacation rental studio and are there to provide vacationers and travelers with a comfortable stay.
Andrew purchased this house in 2006
We purchased the property to restore, to offer as an historic rental, and to live in. The location is very convenient for Travelers coming to the down town Tucson area, and the U. of A.
The house is one of the oldest properties in the historic Iron Horse Neighborhood, and has been and renovated with many historic features to make a comfortable and inviting place to stay.
This was a wonderful little place to stay, comfortable and clean and exactly what I was looking for. The kitchen was charming and the bed was just the kind of firmness I like. I travel quite a bit throughout the year, and it was nice to take a break from the regular hotel stay to live for a week in an actual home, especially one as well taken care of as this.
This little adobe is exactly as presented. Very comfortable, and very well-supplied in the kitchen and bathroom. The host Andrew lives next door and was very helpful. There was plenty of room for my husband and I to spread out and relax after our days of hiking. We cooked at home a few nights and also went out to eat. The house is in a very convenient location, as you are able to walk downtown to see museums, etc, and also to the hopping area of 4th Ave, and up to the University of Arizona. The corner it is on is a little noisy, but once inside the house, there is virtually no noise. When we escape the Washington rain and return to Tuscon, we will try to stay here again.
This adobe provides a quiet and peaceful rest from the city, yet you are only blocks from Tucson's downtown center. A lovely remodeled interior providing a relaxing home away from home.
We enjoyed meeting Andrew and talking with him about the restoration. The location is ideal as is the layout of the apartment. We had our dog with us and the small yard was very helpful. Very, very comfortable. If we are lucky enough to come to Tucson again, we will definitely stay here.
Clean,comfortable living space. Great use of all space.Convenient to all places we wanted to visit during our stay. Thank you for providing your abode during our first visit to Tucson!
The property is within walking distance of the University of Arizona campus (3 blocks), convenient to Tucson Gem Show venues, within walking distance of the historic 4th Avenue shopping district (4 blocks) and downtown Tucson (6 blocks).
