Peace of the country, yet close to town. A restful getaway for nature lovers, close to hiking trails and birding hotspots. Your own driveway and a private keycode - thus you can come and go as you please.

The space

Peace and quiet, birds and other wildlife, awesome sunsets - and only 5 minutes to the freeway! (10 minutes to downtown Tucson). Easy access to many of our local attractions and to the Gem & Mineral Shows.

If you like peace and quiet, along with convenience of close to town, then this is the place for you. This studio space is sited on a hill in a quiet cul-de-sac and is surrounded by the plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert. Hiking nearby or 10 minutes to the night life of downtown Tucson.

Guests get their own unique entry code. Also a private dirt driveway, kitchenette with microwave, coffeemaker, toaster oven, and full fridge. Full bath, living area with couch and recliner. Queen bed. Outdoor seating to enjoy the sunsets. Someone gifted us a TV so you can watch DVD's on if you don't want to read or play some of the games provided.

No interaction with the host, but we are a phone call away if you need something. We can trot down the path to help. Check the blue notebook in the house for more details.

Ours is a quiet desert neighborhood with all homes on lots of one acre or more. As we are in the desert, there will be the possibility of wildlife outside the home. If this concerns you please consider another place.

You will need your own transportation.

Check the house notebook! Available will be a plethora of information on local things to see and do. We also have some information on all the wildlife you may encounter and how to be safe in the Sonoran Desert.

Guest access

The entire space is your own, with your own private driveway, personal patio with lawn furniture, and washer & dryer in the laundry room beside your front door (fragrance-free laundry soap provided).

Interaction with guests

We prefer minimal interaction. You have your own kitchen for all your meals, and enough coffee and tea to get you started your first morning. We have tried to anticipate your needs with a guest notebook full of directions to local supermarkets, restaurants, and other area attractions. If you need help, you only need to ask. We are a quick phone call away.

Other things to note

It is quiet out here. At night the sound of silence can be thunderous if you are not used to it. Wonderfully relaxing if you prefer quiet.

Wonderfully quiet and scenic, within 3 miles of the interstate but surprisingly secluded in a beautiful neighborhood. Jacqueline is a gracious host and made sure to repair damage left to her washer dryer unit from the previous tenant quickly so we could use them. We were wondering at first how we would do without tv or Internet for almost a week but it was amazingly wonderful to disconnect and just enjoy the scenery and quiet. Will look to book again the next time we are in the area.

This was our first AirBNB experience and we were pleasantly surprised with the private, quiet location. Jacqueline was very clear during communication, which I appreciated. We enjoyed our peaceful retreat watching the birds through the window!

Clean, great location. Just be aware there is no TV or internet. Otherwise, our stay would have been great. Clean and well stocked. This was our first stay with Airbnb so I learned what to look for next time.

Response from Jacqueline:
Most of our guests have no problems at all reading the website and noticing that there is no wifi or television. Most of our guests do not need to be entertained - they are capable of having fun without an electronic teat. Most appreciate the fact that it is a _quiet_ place to stay, and check in time is 4 pm not the 3 pm that you showed up at. Was the lack of internet why you thought it was ok to leave the place dirty and ruin the sofa cushions?

We had some challenges during our stay and Jacqueline was able to get everything figure out. The casita is in a very quiet location and had everything we needed for our stay.

So sorry that the day you checked in was the day my phone got hacked. When I finally got to the apple store we discovered a Chinese malware obviously picked up at the gem show. Yikes!

A great little casita nestled in a quiet little neighborhood. We stayed two nights and loved the views, the fresh air and the comfy bed. Everything we needed was there and available at the ready. I will definitely be returning!

The official biography has this to say: “Dr. Jacqueline Soule is a long-time Southwest gardener who has written ten volumes on gardening in that unique climate. She is an award-winning garden writer who has been a popular columnist for many years with weekly and monthly columns in a number of national, regional and local publications, including The Explorer Newspaper, and Angie's List magazine. Jacqueline and her husband Paul Weinand have recently moved to a fixer-upper home in the Tucson Mountains. When she isn't writing or trying to wrest a new garden out of rocky clay soil, she and Paul work on renovating their living space.”

I can add this: I have two cats, hazel eyes, and the rest is subject to change without notice. (If you recognize who I am para-quoting that will also tell you something about me.)
