About this listing
Our place is less than a half-mile to the U of A and many bus lines, and it is less than a mile to Downtown Tucson, nightlife, and the new light rail. You’ll love our place because it has a full kitchen, with all the pots, pans, and implements you'll need to cook meals.
There are 3 king beds with memory foam toppers and we can convert any, or all, of them into 2 Twin-XL beds if you want. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families with older children, and small groups.
Guests have access to the entire house as well as the front and back porches and yards. There is on street parking in front with a parking pass that we will give you. If you require off street parking, please make an inquiry and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Interaction with guests
We live right next door, and one of us is available throughout the day if you have any questions, need directions, or information about the area. We've stocked the kitchen with cooking implements, and we encourage you to cook. If you can't find something you need, let us know and we'll be happy to lend you an apple corer, citrus zester, rolling pin, etc.

Welcome. We did our best to create a clean, comfortable, welcoming home for you. We hope you find everything just as you expected it, or better. If something isn’t right, please let us know right away so that we can fix it.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us. One of us is usually next door, or not far away, and we’re happy to help.
There are no keys for the house. The electronic locks have been programmed with a code specifically for you. To unlock the door, enter your four digit code and turn the knob to the right to unlock the deadbolt. To lock the deadbolt when you are leaving, close the door and then push the topmost button. That will engage the mechanism and then you can turn the knob to the left to engage the deadbolt.
A parking permit for the space in front of Pie Allen House can be found on the piano. Please be sure to display it on your car dashboard or hang it from your windshield mirror. This permit allows you to park on the street in front of the house. The City of Tucson strictly enforces permitted parking M-F 8-5.
On Sunday evening we will come into the back yard so that we can put the bins out at the curb for pick up. After the trucks have emptied them, we’ll return them during the day on Monday.
We hope there aren’t any, but if there are, we want to help however we can.
If you discover that you forgot to pack any bathroom essentials, we have created a courtesy box for you. Each item is $1. If you've forgotten to pack something that we haven't provided (phone charger, etc.) please let us know so that we can help. There is a CVS just up the road, but if it’s not convenient to run out, give us a call so that we can lend you what you need.
If you break or damage something, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can ensure you aren’t left in an unsafe situation.
Report any difficulties with power, water, internet, or HVAC to us immediately so that we can get them taken care of for you right away.
Smoke & CO Detector
There is a NEST smoke and carbon monoxide detector in the great room. If either is detected, it will trigger the alarm and notify us. We will call you on the phone number in your AirBnB profile to ask if it’s a false alarm. If you don’t answer, we will come over to investigate. If we aren’t nearby and we cannot reach you, we will call the fire department, so please be sure to answer the telephone.
We’ve made up the beds and put out towels based on your reservation. If something isn’t right, please let us know and we’ll take care of it right away. We can transform any King bed into 2 Singles or vice versa. Additional pillows are in the bedroom closets. If you need more blankets and/or pillows than you can find, please let us know.
The remote for the Roku TV should be on one of the tables in the living room. Feel free to sign into any of your streaming services. We’ve installed apps for the most common services. If yours isn’t in the list, let us know and we’ll see if it’s available. If it is, we’ll install it for you.
Feel free to play the piano as much as you like. If it’s after 9 pm, just be sure to close the windows, bedroom doors, and exterior doors to contain the sound.
There are jigsaw puzzles and brain teasers in the cabinet under the TV. Feel free to play with them. Just return them to their boxes and drawers. We also have some strategy board games next door if you would like to borrow them.
We’ve stocked the kitchen with pots, pans, and implements to help you cook meals. If there is anything you need that you cannot find, please let us know. We both love to cook, and we’re happy to lend you a different pan, a blender, or any other implement that we have.
