A simple guest room with private bath in a beautiful home on the edge of the Sonora Desert. Step out our front door to nature trails that wind in and our of washes and arroyos. Close to Tucson, Tubac, and Nogales, Sonora. Perfect spot for enjoying the Tucson Gem Show. Easy access to cycling, both on the road and off. Anza Trail less than 1 mile away.

The space

This guest room is located in a beautiful home on a quiet street. There are many desert nature trails to explore. Perfect for bird watchers as we are about 15 minutes from Madera Canyon.

The mindful traveler will enjoy meditation on the back patio.

I have two indoor cats, Klaus (black and white) and Norma Jean (white).

Guest access

You will have access to the guest bedroom and private bath. You may use the microwave in the kitchen for light vegetarian food preparation. The swimming pool, jacuzzi, front and back patios are also available for guests.

I have coffee and tea in the kitchen for your use and a shelf in the refrigerator if you're here for more than a day or two.

Interaction with guests

I live in this home as well as work from a home office. I'm around a lot to answer questions.
I really enjoy chatting with guests and getting to know them. I can offerer sightseeing and restaurant recommendations. Feel free to come into the living room and say hi if you see us around. However, if you're are in introvert I'll respect your space and not bother you. :-)

Anna and Scott were great hosts. At the end of a long day it was nice to sit and chat with them over a class of wine.

Great couple in a great location at the entrance to Madera Canyon. For nature lovers, this is a perfect spot. The house itself is surrounded by nature, and very easy to head up the canyon. For those visiting, it is a really easy short trip to the freeway. The bedroom I had was clean and comfortable. While the bathroom was a joint bathroom, it really was just mine to use. They were also very accommodating with my changing plans.

Anna's place in Green Valley is very comfortable. She and Scott are very friendly and helpful--great hosts! Madera Canyon is nearby and easy to access from their place. The nature trail from their home is a pleasure to walk.

This lovely home was my oasis during a time of grief.. to attend a funeral in the area. I knew I couldn't possibly be in a hotel, and staying in the high desert on the way to one of my favorite places (Madera Canyon) was perfect. These hosts are supremely interesting people with a heart of gold. My stay could not have been better... wish it could have been longer. Thank you just doesn't even say it.

You'll have to come back now that we got the new heater/pump situation figured out on the jacuzzi. You want 104, I can give you 104! Thanks for staying with us.

Anna and her husband are wonderful hosts. I was in town to visit my father in assisted living on the La Posada campus. Their home is mere minutes away. The area is very quiet and accommodations perfect for my purpose with needing a quiet respite after spending all day with my father. I'm an introvert and this was my first Airbnb adventure. Very lovely experience.

I love to travel and spend a lot of time in Flagstaff, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Omaha. I never leave home without my travel chop sticks and travel spork.
