The loft with both sets of double doors open to the big covered balconey, very private.  Great big table for planning the next vacation!

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.

The space

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!

Guest access

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.

The perfect place to stay for a week's business trip while I worked at UArizona. Close to downtown, the trolley bus, but quiet on a night.

This spot was exactly what I hoped for our month-long stay in Tucson- close enough to walk to coffee shops, bars, and restaurants, but far enough away from all that to feel secluded and close to the desert. The space itself is beautiful with a great patio/balcony to enjoy a meal or the sun setting. The kitchen and bathroom were surprisingly huge, and the bed was super comfortable! MaryAnn was an awesome host, and I would stay there again tomorrow if I could!

Everything was even better than I expected! I stayed here after I got married and couldn't have chosen a better place!

We had a wonderful stay on MaryAnne's property. She was friendly and welcoming, the apartment was beautiful. This year we rented the apartment to host Thanksgiving and MaryAnne went out of our way to find us all the kitchen supplies we needed. Her space was inviting, low key and relaxing! Looking forward to visiting again.

This was our first experience with Airbnb and MaryAnn was so helpful starting with the greeting message when the reservation was first confirmed. She was there to meet us as check-in to make sure we knew where everything was. The property was in a great location right downtown a block from the trolley making it easy to get to the hot spots on congress and 4th street. The loft itself was so charming. It has an old world feel with all of the modern amenities you could need. Great shower, huge soaking tub, comfy bed, everything you need in the kitchen to make a great meal, the coach is great for movie watching, and the balcony is perfect for that morning cup of coffee. MaryAnn also had a whole binder of information for things to do in the area and menus for local restaurants. Great experiences, Thanks MaryAnn!

If you're looking for a place to stay near the convention center with access to the light rail, this is a very convenient spot. The studio itself is lovely and exactly as pictured. MaryAnn was very welcoming and helpful with advice on visiting local sites and with tips on getting around the town. There is a gravel alleyway with a spot for parking on the property (Maryann didn't have any other guests that weekend, so was kind enough to let my parents park there while we spent the day together.) You'll be climbing a flight of stairs, so bear that mind choosing your suitcase or if you're not as nimble as you used to be. Since I grew up coming to Tucson once or twice annually, it's sort of a home away from home to me. Tucson, the city, itself has its quirks--which you will either love or not. The one amazing thing about traveling in the desert Southwest in the Summer is the afternoon storms--those can be worth the visit alone. The studio has great A/C, but if the heat outside gets to be too much, take a meandering ride up to the top of Mt. Lemmon for a 40+ degree temperature drop and wonderful views of the lower Valley. Downtown Tucson also features music venues, restaurants and entertainment. All of which is easily accessible from the apartment.

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.
