Share our beautiful, southwestern home in the amazing Santa Catalina Mountain Foothills. Within walking distance of exclusive La Encantada shopping mall, art galleries and restaurants. Close to several golf courses, biking & hiking trails, Sabino Canyon, University of Arizona, Mt Lemmon, DeGrazia Studio, Desert Museum, & more! Child friendly! Join us!
This gloriously spacious bedroom is part of a large master suite (460 sq. ft.), including a dressing room, walk-in closet & private bath w/ sunken tub. There is a queen Tempurpedic bed & a antique twin bed, which Poncho Villa is said to have slept in long ago! The room is quaintly furnished w/ antiques dressers, & a slate-topped writing table. A sliding door opens to a private, shaded patio, from which the pool can be accessed. This bedroom will easily accommodate two adults and a child or small adult (the twin bed is short as was Pancho Villa.)
The family room adjacent to kitchen has TV, DVD & VCR players. There is also a lovely beehive fireplace to warm beside when the weather is cold enough. You are welcome to use this area. Enjoy the outdoor areas, also. The backyard with pool (not heated) and gardens are lovely to soak up warmth and tranquility. Shade from a large mesquite tree or porches is welcome as the temperature rises. Wander the natural desert landscape on the rest of the acre beyond the walls. Be careful of prickly cactus! Most everything in the desert has thorns! Beware!
Interaction with guests
Share a continental breakfast each morning. We will recommend local restaurants for the rest of your meals. We respect your privacy & desire for peace & quiet. We have lived in this home for 35+ years, & in Tucson for 50+ years. We will share what we know about the area whenever you like. .

Other things to note
This room will comfortably accommodate 2 adults, or two adults and one child or short adult (the twin bed is short). There is ample space for a pac-n-play/porta-crib. So small families are welcome! The pool is surrounded by a four foot, locked, gated fence to protect children. Because of the split-bedroom floor plan, the suite is very private! The other bedrooms are at opposite end of home.
Please, no smoking inside home nor near doors or windows on the outside. There is an ashtray on table under the Mesquite tree in backyard. Thank you!
Please conserve electricity and water; but please no open-flame candles. We do have battery candles if atmosphere is desired.
Sorry, no pets; we have a 2 cats & a dog, which we will share.
Obtain permission before using or eating food or beverages which do not belong to you. Sorry, this seem obvious; but is evidently not to some people. Thank you!
We love to share many magazines, books and maps. Read them if you like, then leave them for the next guest. Thanks!
Please be considerate of other people by being quiet between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Thank you!
I'm a retired school teacher having taught home ec. and math. I, my son, and daughter have lived in Tucson for most of our lives. I lived near Hilo, Hawaii after retiring for several years. That was wonderful; Hawaii is a beautiful place; but Tucson is, also! I enjoy cooking and entertaining. Traveling is also a passion! But my grandchildren are more important at this time in life. So I will travel vicariously through my guests' travel adventures.
