Located so of the Convention Ctrr in downtown Tuc (near new trolley stop) in Barrio Viejo, this second story loft apartment we call the High Chapparal for it's mod western theme. Large deck, large tv, great wifi, large bathtub and separate shower, off st. parking.
Enjoy the large private deck for coffee, cocktails and sunsets, or step inside to see the large studio with the amazing floor of hand-drawn woodgrain (you have to see this to believe it). Flat screen tv with cable (incl. HBO) and wireless internet. A complete kitchen with dishwasher and antique stove, you can really cook and serve on the large table with 6 chairs if you want to have friends over. Or enjoy the large bathroom with soaking tub and generous shower and walk in closet. Comfortable and clean. The queensize platform bed two steps up in the corner affords you the view of the missing barrio as you gaze towards downtown over the community center; you can dream about the past or ruminate on the future. Off street parking and laundry on premises.
Other rentals available in 2 extended yards; the shed, an urban cabin, and 2 antique rv's; great for groups! But this apartment is for the parents or the star!
PRICES ARE ADJUSTED SEASONALLY, SO PLEASE LOOK AT CALENDAR TO SEE RATES/TIME OF YEAR.
Table and chairs on deck overlooking dense mesquites in bird filled yard.
Interaction with guests
Minimal, because guests have their own entrance to the yard, but am available for any assistance or to borrow anything from my well stocked house next door.
Other things to note
No pets, please. The wood floors and rugs can't take it. We do allow pets downstairs in the Hideout and in the Love Shack.
No check in after 10 pm
No smoking inside, including herbal. Yard ok.
No late (after 10 pm) or loud parties. I love it when guests have friends visit, but it is a quiet neighborhood, so no big or late parties.
From Jan 25 - Feb 15, 2018 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
We own these 2 antique rv's which are totally drivable and roadworthy because my husband has a dvd distribution business (BrinkDVD), and he bought these 2 thinking he would take his line of dvd's to film festivals throughout the southwest and we did! But there were many breakdowns and sometimes we brought a lot of people in these vehicles like to Marfa, Texas, and another time Austin, Texas, and even to LA, California. But these vehicles needed many repairs and over the years many repairs were made (that one that broke down in LA spent a year there, and one that broke down in New Mexico spent a year there) and you are looking at some very expensively renovated beasts of the road that ended up like beached whales in my yard with my husband far too crabby to take them back out and serve as mechanic; he is on to other dreams.
That's where I come in. My husband is Aries, which corresponds to the head, and I am Pisces, which corresponds to the feet. I finish what he starts! And after looking at them, mostly just one until both of them were driven back into the yard and then there were two. And there they sat unloved, these fine cabins of 1968 comfortability. The RV's have extra long but slightly narrow double beds, fully plumbed toilets on board, complete kitchens, and access to a luxurious shower down the hill. (Combined with a laundry room available to all guests).
They would have liked to have had one of these RV's on the moon! I was compelled to landscape around the beached turquoise whales with white gravel, to make it more light at night so my guests can see. Plus I like the Japanesey look, it integrates well with the our desert.
I had managed a hotel for years, but now I work at home as a bookkeeper for our own businesses. I worked at Hotel Congress in downtown Tucson for 15 years and managed it for 10(left there in Oct 99). And now, I am operating a mini hotel in my backyard and next door. The yards are adjoined by an arch, and if you're in the guesthouse please feel free to enjoy the birds and fountain on the other side. Altogether there are 5 places here on two adjoining lots, and each accommodation has quite a bit of personal space. .
The guesthouse which we call the "the love shack" is a great little guest house with everything you need for an extended stay: tiny kitchen, tiny bathroom, large comfy bed downstairs, and loft bed in a tiny loft upstairs, and HBO. Sometimes people disappear for weeks in the shack.
My husband's business BRINK (creative digital) occupied the two story house in the back of the lot where the trailers are located, but in 2013 he moved to a commercial building about a mile away. So we have turned the old BRINK offices back into residential units, upstairs and down.
There is a large 1000 square foot luxury loft the we lovingly call the High Chaparral (after our favorite TV show of the seventies). It has a great very private upstairs porch, large screen TV, huge tub and shower, full kitchen, and stereo with record player! It's very swank in that pioneer TV way. There is off-street parking behind the building and a private entrance.
The bottom floor unit, which we call The Hideaway, is rocking a 60's pop Italian apartment theme, with extra beds for itinerant rock bands or families with kids. The signature piece of The Hideaway is a vintage Fantasia fiber optic lamp, that beats TV any day of the week, but yes, there is a flatscreen LED, with HBO AND Cinemax AND Showtime AND ESPN.
