This is a detached studio guesthouse that is approximately 280 sq. ft in size. It shares a porch with our main house but it has good privacy. It has a very comfortable queen size bed with high thread-count linens. The place is decorated minimally and tastefully and has great views. It also comes with a parking space.
Our place is 1.5 miles west of I-10 and sits near the apex of a hill. We have great views of the Santa Catalina mountain range and the city lights from our back patio. The space is modest yet comfortable. It's decorated with custom-built furniture. It has good privacy. It will comfortably sleep 2 and if a 3rd will be staying then we have a Big Agnes backpacking air mattress (3" thick). There will be an additional $20 charge per night for a 3rd guest.
Our place is just steps away from a large swath of the Sonoran desert. The area is hilly so there are great views in every direction. Situated on the western edge of Tucson, it is close to Saguaro National Monument and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Nearby Tumamoc Hill, is a great, but very steep, 1.5mi walk to the top that offers a great workout and sweeping 360 degree views.
Interaction with guests
Vonnie and I both work so the amount interaction will vary depending on our work schedules at that particular time. We enjoy engaging our guests and will often share a drink with them but we also get that our guests aren't coming to Tucson to see us so our feelings aren't hurt if they decline socializing. Our Pit Beagle Lula really loves meeting our guests.
Other things to note
The place has a refrigerator, a toaster oven, a microwave oven and a coffee maker with a hot water tap. There is also a French Press. It should be noted that it does NOT have a conventional oven or stovetop so it is not a great space for guests who want to cook. Our pool is not heated so it is only really usable from Late March to November.
Our space is non-smoking but smoking is allowed on the patio. We want to know a little bit about our guests prior to approving them so if a guest doesn't have a fleshed-out profile or doesn't tell us a little about themselves upon their introduction, we will be less inclined to approve them. Non-AB&B guests are not permitted without prior approval. We turn in early and rise early. Our neighborhood is quiet so we don't allow parties....... unless we are hosting. : ) Then, anything goes.
I'm a bartender-turned-RN who works on a cardiac unit at a nearby hospital. I also produce, bottle and market an upscale Margarita mix called Dick's Mix®. Vonnie is an aesthetician who owns her own business. We have no children. Just a sweet Pit Beagle named Lula and two Burmese kitties, Will & Cam. We enjoy good wine, interesting people and a love of the desert.
