The space

This is a large private room in a 7 bedroom house that is a cross between a house share and a mini-hostel. What you can expect is an intent by the resident-owner-bachelor (Ron), to be friendly and helpful to you, in a generally cooperative environment, with a room that has 2 single fresh beds, and a futon that folds out to a full size for a 3rd person, or 3rd and 4th if the 3rd and 4th want to squeeze into that full. Comes with use of kitchen and house common areas inside and out. Should not expect to find a professionally maintained lodging house. The house is 2800 sq ft with 7 bedrooms; 2 are occupied by full-time adult single residents, including Ron; 1 room consists of a private office that can be rented for an extra daily rate should you wish to conduct business; 1 room is the male bunk room; and 1 room is the female share room. Ron operates a small law practice inside the house. Free coffee. House is centrally located and convenient to main Tucson destinations.

Guest access

Use of full kitchen and common areas, 2 shared bathrooms, satellite TV, wify, clothes washer and dryers, basketball court, weight bench, barbeque, free coffee. There is also a guest computer. House supplies toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies for kitchen and bathroom, and a few extras for your convenience, depending on availability, such as simple condiments, laundry soap, simple body soap and shampoo, and if needed a clean towel (the items usable by guests have “Airbnb” written on with magic marker. You also use of kitchen utensils, dishes, pots, pans silverware. All other food, toiletries and other personal products must be your own. Please clean up immediately after yourself. Private office and bikes might be available to rent for additional charges. Check out the extra details.

Interaction with guests

This place is intended to be a place where people communicate with each other, interact, and help, in the environment of a blend of house share, hostel, and an intentional cooperative community. If every single bed is occupied, there would be a total of 11 people in the house. It is understood that anyone and everyone may be very busy with their endeavors, including myself, as I run a law office practice at the same location. So interaction might not be as much as would otherwise would be possible. The idea is that each person makes an effort to converse, interact and cooperate to the overall goal of synergy (more positive energy generated than the sum total put in). The longer the stay, the more these ideas apply.

Other things to note

We have premium movie channels, satellite television, sports programming and DVD collection. Close to University of Arizona. You can walk to convenience store, restaurants, fast food, grocery store, RX Store and etcetera. A private room means there is more room to spread out, in contrast to the small space available to those that rent beds in the bunk rooms. Check out the extra details.

MAIN UPDATED HOUSE RULES updated June 26, 2016

The intention is that this be a sort of an intentional community in which there are levels of communication, participation and cooperation that one might not find elsewhere. More on this below. Smoking okay outside only. The house is intended to have a livable feel to it, so ordinary and/or reasonable noise and sound are okay, but we avoid sudden slams and bangs of doors especially in the front hallway, and we intend to keep it fairly quiet, from 10 pm to 10 am. Additionally, we try to strike a balance between the wants of those that prefer sound levels up, with those that prefer quiet. The main common area will likely have on television or possibly even music, kept to a marginal level, depending on the overall preferences of those here at the time.

There are a number of people here at all times and there is a responsibility to to maintain a pleasant atmosphere. So we cannot have volatility or turbulent behavior nor other forms of drama.

There are a number of guidelines with regard to quickly cleaning up after yourselves, and the aim is for the place to always be reasonably tidy and clean. But it will not be super-immaculate here, unless the periodic housekeeper has recently completed a thorough job through the whole house. Clean up after yourself. Especially attend to yourselves with regard to the kitchen and bathroom. This means plates, pots, pans, silverware, and also crumbs and smudges on stove, counters and table. You are asked to use the dishwasher (dish sanitizer), but food has to be cleaned off everything before it goes in the dish sanitizer. It is okay to soak items for a time before wiping them off. The dishwasher’s purpose is to sanitize the dishes. Wipe down the bathroom counters of the water spilled on it during use and generally clean up any other mess one makes in the bathroom.

The longer a person is here the more they become a “member of the community,” and there are some minor token additional chores that the people that live here take turns performing, such as taking out trash and recyclables from kitchen to outside bins, emptying dishwasher, and giving all kitchen counters and table a good wiping down with a wet rag, followed by a disinfectant wipe. This helps keep the costs down. And helping out in this way is a bonding exercise that makes a person feel more like part of the group of people that live here. Additionally, it is hoped, but not demanded, that community members will participate in personal interaction with the others here, such as conversation, meal sharing and activities. Use only your own food stuffs and personal items, unless permission is given, with the exception that the house may throw in certain designated items as an added benefit. House supplies towel, some toiletries (those marked “airbnb”), coffee, and use of kitchen utensils, dishes, pots, pans silverware). There may be other benefits thrown in, such as an occasional home cooked meal, but these are gifted extras, and not part of what guests pay for.

Ronald made me feel more than just comfortable and the all the things were exactly as mentioned . It is undoubtedly the best accomadation one can get in tucson in terms of price and its closeness to all the restaurants and grocery stores. Ronald is a super nice guy and not only offers you dinner daily but also offers you to watch the any new movie and talk shows on tv. He made me learn about the american culture and history during my stay. We had some trips to places that are worth to visited . Indeed i highly recommend this accomodation if someone is visting tucson. Mr ronald is a great humanbeing and one the persons who really make me belief about the greatness of americans as a nation.

I believe in cooperative sharing of living spaces, especially people may not have extra discretionary income. I operate my law practice out of my 7 bedroom house and have rented rooms for 9 years. I love sports, both playing and watching, popular culture including movies and quality tv, quality rock from 50s thru the present, conversation, meditation and life philosophy. I love discussions of all varieties from the spiritual to all aspects of ordinary life, including those things that I said I love, anything intellectual, science and positive life skills and points of view.
