Property Details

Updated: Oct 24, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

December Special-$995 per week for 6 guests or less. $1,195 for 7 to 10 guests. $200 cleaning fee. All terms remain the same.

Tucson Street Car is now running! It is less than ½ mile from the home.

This stunning home was featured in Home and Garden Magazine.

The home was also used in the filming of Spin, a film by Jamie Redford, Robert's son.

It was also showcased in the Sundance Catalog.

Long before the 1853 Gadsden Purchase placed southern Arizona under U.S. jurisdiction, the city of Tucson was a Spanish colonial outpost. When Mexico achieved independence in 1821, Tucson became part of the new country.

Those transnational links survive in downtown's Barrio Historico, whose 150

adobe row houses make up our country's largest collection of traditional Sonoran architecture.

The 20-block neighborhood is entered on the national Historic Register.

Explore on foot, making sure to light a candle at the outdoor shrine to El Tiradito, a herder who was killed in a lover's dispute in 1870. According to legend, pilgrims whose candles stay lit through the night will see their wishes come true.

Nearby, El Minuto Cafe, est. 1936, dishes out Sonoran cuisine as

authentic as the neighborhood.

'It's (Barrio Libre) a perfect place to celebrate the contributions

of Mexican immigrants to American culture.' *USA Today May 15, 2005*

This Amazing Historic home is a rare Spanish Colonial home built in 1880 and thoughtfully restored less than 5 years ago.

The adobe walls of the massive structure are over 2 feet thick and almost 20

feet high. The ceilings are covered with Saguaro ribs and topped with over 2 feet of concrete which replaced the dirt that was used as insulation in the 1880's.

Traditional period Spanish/Mexican religious art adorn the walls. See more pictures, please email and I will send you the link to the home's email address.

JUST GO FOR IT - you will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5
Craig has done a great job to make you feel special in a special place. We were a large group with differing demands and no one was disappointed. The house is a cross between a church and a Game of Thrones set and it is AWESOME. Our group consisted of a regular churchgoer (she went to mass around the corner) and teenagers (who did not rise before noon) and there was room for all to sleep, eat and have fun. The kitchen is well equipped and the neighborhood quiet. Craig has done all the important things right - comfy beds, nice linen, quality appliances. If I had to find something to improve, I would say "needs more dust control and a bigger TV would be nice during the NBA playoffs". But, who worries about that when the birds in the trees above sing to you each morning? The house is central to everything and the location took away the worry about kids driving after being out. Take a chance - stay some place where you will never forget your surroundings-its that different.

Very Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The property was lovely, particularly the patio & pool. We certainly enjoyed sitting around the patio/pool area in early morning, coffee in hand, watching the birds & soaking up the lovely sunshine. In hot afternoons, frequent swims were taken. The kitchen contains high quality equipment and the MBR walk-in shower with rain-type shower head was lovely. The property is only a 10-15 minute drive to/from the airport. Craig was very friendly and we enjoyed meeting him.

Historic Home in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5
Craig was great. He made himself available to answer all questions and provide restaurant recommendations in the local area. The convenient location is walking distance from the convention center and other downtown attractions. It was safe, quiet and comfortable. The best feature is the shower in the back of the house. Definitely AWESOME! We will definitely consider the Convent House for our next stay in Tucson.

a wonderful sanctuary...

  • 5 of 5
The Convent is not just a place to stay but is a destination in itself...a wonderful sanctuary in a rather unexpectedly wonderful location.
The house anchors a prominent corner in the Viejo Barrio, capturing the flavor and history of southern Arizona and allowing an up-close taste of the Tucson of old and the city's slow emergence, perhaps siesta-paced, emergence into the present.
We loved the convenience of being able to walk to the downtown area, to the nearby restaurants/shops/bars, and to enjoy greeting neighbors as we strolled the historic area. It was a bonus that we were able to utilize our Y membership and workout at the downtown Lohse Family Y and stop at the bagel store on the walk home...just like locals.
The Convent, in keeping with it's "austere" title is unassuming on the exterior but opens from the street to a lovely, unique compound...high-ceilinged and fascinatingly decorated with religious artifacts, curiosities, and architectural features that give an almost museum-like feel to the place. With a nice indoor-outdoor balance of livable space we all gravitated to the covered patio, the pool and hot tub for most of the time.
Ever the gracious host, Craig was eager to respond to any query. We took advantage of his list of local restaurants...just ran out of time to get to them all!
What a treat to enjoy Casa Vicente, just at the end of the street, for our last night in Tucson...a lovely dinner and an authentic flamenco show.
We were so glad to have opted to book for three weeks rather than a briefer stay...a delightfully memorable place to host friends and family.

Coolest Tucson Rental

  • 5 of 5
What a cool place. We absolutely loved this historic beautiful home and will definitely stay here again. The bathrooms and kitchen were amazing and modern. Plenty of areas to sit and visit outdoors or inside. We walked to many amazing restaurants and to the charming Fox Theatre one night. My favorite restaurant was the Downtown Kitchen & Cocktails, but they were all good. Craig and Israel were very easygoing and helpful. See you next time!
