Cozy house in historic Menlo Park. A few minutes walk to the street car (5 min ride to downtown!), scenic river path, groceries and coffee shops, laundromat, etc. I have chickens, a friendly dog, pleasant outdoor seating, shared bath, and kitchen.

Guest access

You will be able to use all the rooms as if you lived here. We will share the kitchen, bathroom and living space. You will be able to use my cookware and the kitchen if you like. I also have a nice yard and back patio with a table and outdoor seating.

Interaction with guests

I will be around for most guest stays, but work regular hours and some weekend hours as well. So please feel free to ask for advice and even to share meals with me, but don't count on a tour guide or late night conversations.

Other things to note

My house is quite small and I don't change my habits or schedule for guests, so expect hospitality and a comfortable clean bedroom, but not commercial level amenities or cleanliness in the rest of the house! I live here and you're entering my space and my daily life, so it's important that you're comfortable with that! I look forward to hosting you.

We really enjoyed our stay with Emma. Her house is in a great location and the tram is very easy (and cheap!) to catch to all of the interesting places in downtown Tucson. The bed is really comfortable and Emma made us feel very 'at home'. The common areas were nicely furnished and tidy, and the air conditioning was great for the hot days. River is the most friendly, gorgeous dog. We would highly recommend staying with Emma.

This little home is such a bargain, and RIGHT off of the interstate, making access super quick. Emma's home had everything we needed for our weekend stay, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. My husband and I both slept like rocks the whole night through. We would definitely stay again.

Emma was very easy to work with and always checked in to make sure all my needs were taken care of. Her home was perfect for my needs.

Emma's place was perfect for what I needed - a quiet place for two nights. Emma seems very sweet and was good about communicating. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet as she was out of town for the time I was there. At first the location seemed questionable but Emma said it was safe and, except for a few bumps in the night, I felt safe. The house is quite small and since Emma wasn't there, space wasn't an issue. The home was clean, the bed was nice, plenty of shelving in the bedroom, nice dining table. Location is good, too - close to I10 and Speedway Blvd.

This is the place to book if you want to live like a local. Share Emma's life, her one bedroom house tucked in a sweet near-downtown neighborhood. Just like having a housemate! Ask her about water conservancy and desert plants. She knows her stuff! Thanks!

Emma was very friendly and inviting. The property was as described, especially great was the short walk into downtown Tucson. The kitchen and shared bathroom are a bit unkept, but not disturbingly so.

Down to earth animal lover/environmentalist. I have 7 chicken ladies and one sweet dog. I love to garden and grow desert plants and go hiking in and around Tucson! I also love to cook and bake bread.
I work for Watershed Management Group, a non-profit that implements water-harvesting projects across Tucson and educates the community about the importance of harvesting rainwater in our desert city.
I am pretty busy almost all of the time, so won't be a "tour-guide" host, but I love to get people all set up with maps and advice to explore Tucson via bike or public transport on their own. I love Tucson and enjoy introducing my desert city to out-of-towners!
