Newly Built One Bedroom Guest House In The Catalina Foothills

Perfectly situated escape in the foothills of Tucson.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay in Jim's guest house. The house is perfectly situated in the Catalina foothills, only a mile from excellent restaurants and a gourmet market. Bike lanes abound and no less than four phenomenal trailheads were within a 15 minute drive for those wanting to see the area on foot. Jim was a generous and thoughtful host. His home is exquisitely designed with a lovely shared courtyard and a pool that would be perfect for the summer months. We cannot wait to return!

Loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here instead of a hotel while in Tucson for girls college softball. Even though about a half hour drive from the fields I would not of changed a thing. So much better than a hotel. Unit was very, very clean. Location for various hiking trails was good. Also, an upscale outdoor shopping mall only a mile away and an easy walk. Location very quiet and we always felt safe. Jim was very nice and informative. I would not hesitate to stay here again and hopefully will next year when we return for softball.

We were very pleased with the unit. Spotlessly clean, beautiful courtyard. Wish we could have got to know Jim better, our schedule kept us quite busy. Hundred times better then a Hotel. You can't go wrong with this unit. Absolutely never felt security was an issue. Rent it and enjoy.

A Restful Place with easy access to all the best of Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay was perfect in a variety of ways. The location is close to parks, shopping and restaurants. The host/owner is very gracious and respectful of our privacy. The guest house is very comfortable. Cooking is limited to a microwave but who wants to cook when there are so many great restaurants located minutes away. A great place to relax and enjoy the tranquility of a peaceful place.

A First-Rate Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thinking that a guest house rental would make an interesting alternative to a hotel, I stayed at this Catalina Foothills property for 8 nights during my Tucson visit. I have zero regrets in my decision and recommend the property most highly. The guest house is conveniently located but tucked away in a very quiet neighborhood. The property has a very tranquil atmosphere with a courtyard and bubbling fountain. And, of course, it's in Tucson which is a great place to spend time.
