This guest house is now available for rent to travelers that are visiting Tucson for the first time and for those who are returning to Tucson who are looking for a unique and private stay with access to many of Tucson's activities such as golf, hiking, biking ,etc.
The guest house location close to many of Tucson's finest restaurants, shopping and golf courses, is ideal and convenient.
Centrally located in the Catalina Foothills, with easy access to the University of Arizona, and many Tucson attractions. Beautiful mountain views. Courtyard with fountain. A unique architectural experience.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Great place good price Jim was great would highly recommend we loved it
