Cute Historic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property for twelve days in August, so the most important part of the review may be how well the air conditioning worked!!! Great location to stay when attending University of Arizona events. A real 'home away from home' with all the amenities. Quiet neighborhood. Owner is very thorough with communication.

Roomy, comfy, close to U of A and downtown

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely older home in the Sam Hughes area just west of Campbell. It's spacious and comfortable and has everything you need. The back has a covered patio and it's fenced if you have a dog, but it's desert landscaping. The house has kept its original character despite some updating. The living/dining/kitchen part of the home is especially roomy and there's a desk in the sunroom (it has a sunroom!) if you need one. The TV is nice and accommodates Netflix -- a big plus for me. The wifi works fine. The A/C unit struggled while I was there but that was in an unusually hot week in the summer. Even then it cooled down enough to sleep at night comfortably with the ceiling fan on. With a little more updating inside and out this place would rate a 5. It's a bargain in terms of size and comfort, and I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Rob so glad you enjoyed your stay in my home while working on your legal case in Tucson. I have now installed a new AC unit, so the house is perfect, regardless of the outside above average high temps we had this summer. The house contributes to the historically designated neighborhood, and I hope you and your dog can stay again the next time you are in town.

Beautiful house close to the university.

  • 5 of 5

This house has a really nice yard and a lovely kitchen. It was very comfortable and charming. The only possible negative is that it was super hot the weekend we were there (111) and the air conditioner struggled a bit, but it was still very nice.

Awesome Tucson Lodging

  • 5 of 5

The University House exceeded our expectations in so many ways! Lisa keeps the property in amazing condition. We had every comfort of home. The location was perfect for us as we were attending our daughter's graduation at UA and were able to easily walk to the stadium. The patio was charming and inviting and since the weather cooperated we were able to enjoy it while sitting outside watching the playful birds and geckos. Lisa was even thoughtful enough to leave us a beautiful card and bottle of wine to help us celebrate! Thank you for sharing your home and when we are ever in Tucson again we will certainly stay here.

Our group of five stayed very comfortably for two nights in the University House. The property is quiet, well-maintained and the location is perfect. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to enjoy and experience Tucson.
