A clean, quiet retreat.

This guest studio had all we needed for two of us (+dog, thanks!) for our short stay. Convenient location, modern, clean, cozy. Owners attentive and agreeable. Thanks again!

private, well equipped, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Lee and Laura were perfect hosts...not hovering, just very responsive. The guest suite, with many well thought out and aesthetically pleasing touches, is in a Tucson desert garden. Location is close to wonderful hiking in the mountain park as well as restaurants and stores.

Felt like home. Hosts became friends. Charming casita in beautiful setting. Grocery stores and shopping 2 miles away. Across the street from The Catalina Mountains, hiking trails, etc. Would recommend to anyone.

Thanks Lee, Laura, son, and doggies!

Quiet, comfortable space!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nicely detailed studio. Kitchenette is well equipped for simple meal preparation. Very quiet neighborhood. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Close to shops and grocery stores. Not far from several trail systems on the west and north sides of Tucson. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone or a couple seeking a quiet, relaxing space to stay in Tucson.

Little gem in the foothills

  • 5 of 5

If you are tired of trying to find "small and charming" in the sea of "spacious and luxurious" bigger-than-needed guesthouses, this is the place for you. This place is PERFECT for one or two people, has everything you need for comfort and quiet, including a small, enclosed, shaded patio. Owners Laura and Lee are wonderful hosts, available for any needs (of which I had none), and provided a very clean and bright, tastefully decorated, comfortable place to enjoy the beauty of the Catalina foothills. It's very close to Tohono Chul and grocery stores, and not far from Catalina State Park which is VERY worth a visit. I stayed for a month and LOVED it. I recommend it highly and will do so to all my family and friends who plan to visit this very beautiful part of Tucson.
