We stayed here for four days during the Tucson Gem show. The house was comfortable and charming. The location was close to many of Tucson's best restaurants. Would definitely come back.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 22-year old son, and I stayed at Lisa's house with our two golden retriever dogs for 5 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house was just what we were looking for while we moved our son from Ohio to Tucson for an internship at UofA. The fenced in backyard was perfect for the dogs, and the location was perfect as it was just four blocks from UofA and was relatively close to our son's new apartment. The neighborhood was quiet and safe as well. Thanks, Lisa for sharing your house with us! We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent getaway in the heart of the University area

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home in the past, and were happy to find it just as comfortable as we had remembered. Lisa is a very friendly host, and our dogs were welcomed. The fenced yard is great security for them, and the house is not too far from the dog park. Great location! The outdoor space in this home is really wonderful.

Property had everything one could ask for. Lisa was terrific to work with. Unlike some hosts, she responds timely & was available before & during our stay.

Weekend Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for family during a visit to see our daughters and nephew at U of A. So much more comfy than dreary, cramped hotel rooms especially since we had grandparents, my sister-in law and me and my husband. The kitchen gave us the flexibility to prepare some meals and the living space made for an enjoyable visit. proximity to campus and stadium is a huge plus! We want to come again!!

Great Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

My husband,daughter, and I rented this house for a month in July. Cute, clean, and spacious home with all the needed amenities. The best part was a lush and private backyard, great for morning coffee and for my little dog and cat. The home is centrally located to downtown and the University of Arizona...only 6 blocks from the stadium! The owner was easy to work with, when a problem arose it was taken care of in a timely manner. I highly recommend this property if you are visiting Tuscon.
