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!

The space

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.)

Guest access

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.

We had a wonderful time with Mary Ann. The room and the bathroom are both extremely large and comfortable. Larger than it appears in the photos. Mary Ann made wonderful breakfasts and made sure what we liked beforehand. It was too early in the season for pool and hot tub use but they looked very nice for warmer weather. The neighborhood was fine and it was very convenient to shopping, hikes and golf. Really perfect for our needs.

I stayed with Mary Ann during a cycling training trip. Mary Ann's home was very comfortable. She is wonderful company and was able to provide great recommendations for all my questions about the area. She was kind enough to cater to my cycling-specific diet when it came to breakfast time. Thanks Mary Ann!

unlike many other Airbnb choices Maryann's home is in the foothills which is the most beautiful and safe ,quiet neighborhood of tucson. just walk out of her door and you can take photos which will make you friends jealous. Her room ,closet,and bathroom are all so spacious and tastefully decorated. The bed is at least a 4 star bed, so comfortable. And before we arrived she asked us what type of pillow we like, and left several to chose from. As for breakfast we can make whatever we wish ourself and sometimes we get to enjoy her wonderful cookings too. She also told us a lot about where to go for having good food and good places to visit so we felt like Tuscon natives . We went to mt Lemmon which she suggested and we loved it ! We also enjoyed her well-trained dog Lucky and her two sister cats. We will be sure to stay in her place again when we visit Tucson.

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.
